You didn't think I'd go through the first half of the 2012-13 NBA season without offering my thoughts on all 30 teams, did you? You might've seen more than a few of these all-encompassing shindigs already, but there's been more than enough action and intrigue so far to make room for many more.
And that's before you factor in the soap opera-caliber drama that's befallen the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics through the first three months or so.
Some (Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls) have exceeded preseason expectations. Others (Lakers, Celtics, Toronto Raptors) have largely underwhelmed.
And still others are precisely who Denny Green thought they were, for better (Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs) or worse (Charlotte Bobcats, Sacramento Kings).
With that in mind, let's hand out some midterm grades, with teams listed in ascending order from lowest marks to highest.
