You may remember this question, but you probably didn’t know that this year’s NBA draft was going to have a huge impact on whether or not you want to watch your favorite team win the lottery.
And if you’re not a sports fan, this year might seem a little overwhelming.
For starters, the NBA Draft is over, meaning teams are free to choose their players and the draft order has been changed to a lottery-style format.
But for fans of the NBA, there are still plenty of picks to be had this year.
Here are five teams worth rooting for.1.
Milwaukee Bucks The Bucks are the defending NBA champions, and they have one of the best records in the league right now.
With a lot of their future talent still up for grabs, the Bucks have a lot riding on the success of the season.
Their playoff chances are in the teens, but they are coming off their best-ever season, and their record looks like it will get better over the next few weeks.
If the team can continue to find ways to win games in the playoffs, it could become a serious threat to the Chicago Bulls.2.
Denver NuggetsThe Nuggets are on a hot streak, and it is hard to believe they were just two weeks ago without any wins.
They’ve scored 103.2 points per game over their last four, and while they might not have the best record, they’re still playing for a playoff spot.
With three games left in the season, the Nuggets have the chance to become a legitimate playoff contender.3.
Charlotte Hornets The Hornets are playing for their first playoff berth since the 2008-09 season.
They’ll be fighting the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks for a second-round bye and a chance to take home the second seed.
The Hornets, a perennial contender, will be one of those teams that could make the playoffs.4.
New Orleans PelicansThe Pelicans are a long shot to make the postseason this year, but coach Monty Williams has them a lot better prepared than most teams.
They won the first round of the playoffs last season, but it was against the Indiana Pacers, who are still just in the Eastern Conference.
New York has plenty of young talent, and the Pelicans will be a tough team to beat in the postseason.5.
Brooklyn NetsThe Nets are in a deep run, but there is still plenty to be excited about this season.
The Nets have a young core of players, but their defense is still a work in progress, and even though they’re currently without Jahlil Okafor, they have plenty of talent in their backcourt.
They could be a dangerous team in the East this year and could be the most dominant team in basketball.
