The NBA season is just over a month old, but we’ve seen some great moments.
There have been plenty of surprise teams and some unlikely MVP candidates have emerged.
While there’s still a long way to go in the season, here are two things we’ve learned so far this season.
1. The Celtics are the team to beat in the East
Despite losing coach Ime Udoka to a season-long suspension, the Boston Celtics haven’t missed a beat this year.
Boston has the best record in the NBA, going 17-4.
They also have one of the league’s MVP contenders in Jayson Tatum.
After winning the East last year and losing in the NBA Finals, the Celtics upgraded their roster this offseason.
The Boston Celtics currently own
The best record in the NBA.
The best offense in the NBA
The best net rating in the NBA
The best point differential in the NBA
The best TS% in the NBA
The best +/- of the NBA

The addition of Malcolm Brogdon has been important for them from the bench.
This team looks like a well-oiled machine with no signs of slowing down.
2. The Lakers don’t have enough talent
Some people wondered if a healthy Los Angeles Lakers team could make it to the top of the Western Conference standings this year.
With LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, at worst they should be a playoff team, right?
No, this has been one of the worst teams in the NBA so far this year.
The Lakers are 7-12 and can’t even win when their entire team is healthy.

Shooting is a clear problem on their roster and they simply lack impact players.
Barring a big trade for LA, expect not to see them in the playoffs again this season.
