Before the NBA season began, I brought you the 100 biggest questions heading into the season, largely starring LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant and a few friends.
Now, with a quarter of the season having already passed us by, it’s time to check in on the state of the NBA once again.
Let’s see: Before the season started, the Heat were potentially staring at a 70-win season, the Lakers wouldn’t face any true opposition in the West in their quest towards a three-peat and Greg Oden was still projected to play basketball this season.
Since then, we’ve only seen the re-emergence of Chris Paul, proof that you never count out the San Antonio Spurs as long as Tim Duncan’s still around, a suddenly spry Big Shamrock in Boston, a brutal start for the Super Friends and a few Blake Griffin dunks that we’ll be talking about for years.
So, without further adieu, here are the 50 biggest storylines that are worth remembering from this young NBA season.
On a more personal note: This marks my 200th article for Bleacher Report, and it wouldn't have been possible without everyone who's clicked on, read, and commented on all my previous work. So, long story short, thanks to you guys for making B/R what it is today -- a place where sports fans can congregate and debate the hottest sports topics of the day.
