With the All-Star break fast approaching, it is now time to grade each team in the NBA on the first half of their respective seasons.
It is important to remember, however, that these interim marks can certainly be improved upon by season's end.
These grades only evaluate the work completed to date, and they do not project how the second half will conclude.
Eight teams have earned below a "C" thus far, three have earned an "A+," and one is officially failing at the midseason point.
These grades were based on a combination of individual expectations, organizational goals and overall accomplishments to date. Also, each team is listed alphabetically according to the city they represent.
