With a wild NBA trade deadline finally over and there being about 6 weeks left of the regular season, this is the time where teams will begin to separate themselves and we will get to see who the true championship contenders are in the league this year. 

With all of the talent that exists on every team, the NBA is as competitive as it has ever been and there is going to be a ton of exciting basketball to watch down the stretch. With some of the NBA’s biggest stars expected to return from injuries sooner than later as well, plenty of teams should be gearing up to make what they hope is a deep postseason run this season.
