The NBA season is underway. In some respects, the divide between the league’s contenders and its bottom feeders has never felt wider. 

That’s not to say the league is suffering from a lack of parity. In fact, there are plenty of competitive teams heading into the 2022-23 season. On the other hand, the teams near the bottom of the standings have got more incentive to “tank” than we’ve seen in a long time. 

After all, the 2023 draft isn’t just any draft. This is the Victor Wembanyama draft. Even the lottery teams that miss out on the french phenom could potentially draft Scoot Henderson, Amen Thompson, Nick Smith, or any one of the remarkably talented prospects in this group. All told, this class could be one of the best in NBA history. 

The Chicago Bulls are not expected to join the race to the bottom. After all, they owe their first-round pick to the Orlando Magic.
