2018-19 球季 【82項NBA觀賽重點】

節省時間 全數使用Google翻譯(附上中英對照)

82. The Utah Jazz had 82.9 field goal attempts per game, which was second-lowest in the league. However, 9 of the bottom 10 teams in field goal attempts per game made the playoffs.
猶他爵士隊場均82.9次投籃命中率,在聯盟中排名第二。然而,每場比賽投球的最後10支球隊中有9支進入了季后賽。

81. As a team, the Golden State Warriors converted 81.5% of their free throws, best in the league and 10% better than the worst team, the Los Angeles Lakers.
作為一支球隊,金州勇士隊的罰球命中率為81.5%,聯盟最好,比最糟糕的球隊洛杉磯湖人隊提高10%。

80. The Chicago Bulls sneakily grabbed 80.6% of defensive rebounds, second highest in the league. The addition of rookie center Wendell Carter could further enhance this strength.
芝加哥公牛隊偷偷拿下80.6%的防守籃板,排名聯盟第二。新秀中鋒Wendell Carter的加入可以進一步增強這種力量。

79. The average NBA player stands 79 inches tall (6’ 7”) and weighs about 220 pounds. While average height hasn’t changed much in recent years, the average weight has fallen about 3 pounds since 2013. Maybe they should call it Skinny-ball instead of small-ball.
一般的NBA球員身高79英寸(6英尺7英寸),體重約220磅。雖然近年來平均身高沒有太大變化,但平均體重自2013年以來已下降約3磅。也許他們應該稱之為瘦球而不是小球。

78. Carmelo Anthony has played 1,054 games in his career, including 78 last season. He has started every single one of those 1,054 games. Will he be willing to adjust to a smaller role with the Houston Rockets?
卡梅羅·安東尼在職業生涯中打了1,054場比賽,其中包括上賽季的78場比賽。他已經開始了1,054場比賽中的每一場比賽。他是否願意適應休斯敦火箭隊的小角色?

77. LeBron James made 857 shots last year, 77 more than the closest player (Anthony Davis – 780). His total was almost twice as large as the next-best Cavalier, Jordan Clarkson, who finished 48th in the NBA with 430 made field goals.
勒布朗詹姆斯去年投籃857次,比最接近的球員(安東尼戴維斯 - 780)多77次。他的總成績幾乎是下一個最佳騎士隊的喬丹克拉克森隊的兩倍,他在NBA取得了48次進球,並取得了第430名。

76. John Wall spent 76% of his time on the floor standing still or walking last season, second most in the league. Like other stars, he conserves energy when not running at a blistering pace.
約翰沃爾76%的時間都在場上停留或上賽季走路,在聯盟中排名第二。像其他明星一樣,他在沒有以驚人的節奏跑步時節省了能量。

75. The Charlotte Hornets only assisted on 75.6% of their three point field goals, fourth lowest in the league. Without an excellent spot-up three point shooter, the Hornets might have to increase their assist rate to free up easier shots if they want a shot at the playoffs.
夏洛特黃蜂隊只有75.6%的三分球命中率,在聯盟中排名第四。如果沒有出色的定點三分投手,黃蜂隊可能不得不提高他們的助攻率,以便在季后賽中有機會獲得更輕鬆的投籃。

74. Despite Andre Drummond’s massive improvement in free throw percentage (up to 60.5% last year from 38.6% in the 2016-17 season), the Detroit Pistons still only converted 74.5% of their shots at the line (sixth lowest in the league).
儘管安德烈·德拉蒙德的罰球命中率大幅提升(去年從2016-17賽季的38.6%上升至60.5%),底特律活塞仍然只有74.5%的投籃命中率(聯賽第六低) 。

73. The Oklahoma City Thunder are paying a $73 million luxury tax, highest in league.
俄克拉荷馬雷霆隊正在支付7300萬美元的奢侈稅,這是聯盟中最高的。

72. On March 13, 2018, the Orlando Magic had the lowest scoring output of any team game last season with 72 points. Who will earn that distinction this year?
2018年3月13日,奧蘭多魔術隊上賽季任意球隊得分最低,得分為72分。今年誰將獲得這種榮譽?

71. Tim Hardaway is entering the second year of his massive 4-year, $71million deal. If the New York Knicks want to be more competitive, they better hope Hardaway improves upon his career low 31.7% from 3.
蒂姆哈達威正在進入他4年7100萬美元的大規模交易的第二年。如果紐約尼克斯隊想要更具競爭力,那麼他們更希望哈達威能從三分球隊的職業生涯新低31.7%。

70. The Golden State Warriors led the league in field goal percentage for shots 0-3 feet away from the basket at 70.8%. Their finals opponent, the Cleveland Cavaliers, were right behind them at 70.6%. In fact, 12 of the top 16 teams in field goal percentage 0-3 feet away from the basket were playoff teams.
金州勇士隊投籃命中率達到投籃命中率,投籃命中率為0-3英尺,投籃命中率為70.8%。他們的決賽對手克利夫蘭騎士隊以70.6%排在他們後面。事實上,距離籃筐0-3英尺的投籃命中率最高的16支球隊中有12支是季后賽球隊。

69. Isaiah Thomas stands only 69 inches tall, shortest in the NBA. While the height gap between point guards and centers has decreased 21% from the 1990’s, to an average difference of 8.3 inches (according to 538), Thomas still remains an outlier among point guards. He has a lot to prove this season after taking a 1-year, $6 million contract with the Denver Nuggets.
以賽亞·托馬斯身高只有69英寸,是NBA中最短的。雖然控衛和中鋒之間的高度差距從1990年代開始下降了21%,但平均差距為8.3英寸(根據538分),托馬斯仍然是控球後衛中的一個異常值。在與丹佛掘金隊簽下一份為期一年,價值600萬美元的合同後,他本賽季有很多事情需要證明。

68. Karl-Anthony Towns led the NBA with 68 double-doubles last season.
卡爾 - 安東尼·唐斯上賽季以68次兩雙領先NBA。

67. Reggie Jackson has missed 67 games over the last two seasons. Will this be the year he stays healthy and leads the Pistons to the playoffs?
雷吉傑克遜在過去兩個賽季中缺席了67場比賽。這將是他保持健康並帶領活塞隊進入季后賽的一年嗎?

66. The Philadelphia 76ers had the second highest assist rate last year at 66%.
費城76人隊去年的助攻率位居第二,達到66%。

65. The Houston Rockets led the league with 65 wins last season
休斯頓火箭隊上賽季以65勝的成績領跑聯盟

64. DeAndre Jordan had the second highest field goal percentage at 64.5% last year. Will his success continue when playing with the young Dallas Mavericks?
DeAndre Jordan去年的投籃命中率第二高達64.5%。在與年輕的達拉斯小牛隊比賽時,他的成功會繼續嗎?

63. While the Suns 21-61 record was the worst in the NBA last year, they actually exceeded the win total one would expect from their point spread. The Suns’ Pythagorean win-loss record pegged them for 63 losses last year.
雖然太陽隊21勝61負的戰績是去年NBA最差的戰績,但他們實際上超過了他們對點數差距的預期。去年,太陽隊的畢達哥拉斯隊的勝負紀錄讓他們失去了63場失利。

62. Dwane Casey will turn 62 on April 17, 2019, and is the oldest coach in the Eastern Conference. http://harvardsportsanalysis.org/2017/02/nba-coaches-are-getting-older-what-does-it-mean-for-teams-part-1/ Can the Pistons gift him a postseason berth to celebrate?
Dwane Casey將於2019年4月17日滿62歲,是東部最老的教練。 http://harvardsportsanalysis.org/2017/02/nba-coaches-are-getting-older-what-does-it-mean-for-teams-part-1/活塞可以給他一個季后賽席位來慶祝嗎?

61. The Memphis Grizzlies lost a game by 61 points last season (sixth worst blowout in NBA history). They must hope rookie Jaren Jackson will help them avoid those embarrassing blowouts.
孟菲斯灰熊隊上賽季輸掉了61分(NBA歷史上第六次爆發)。他們必須希望新秀杰倫傑克遜能幫助他們避免那些令人尷尬的井噴。

60. The Los Angeles Lakers have been to the playoffs 60 times in 70 seasons, most in NBA history. After missing the postseason 5 straight years, they hope LeBron James can lead them back.
洛杉磯湖人隊在70個賽季中已經有60次進入季后賽,這在NBA歷史上是最多的。在連續5年缺席季后賽之後,他們希望勒布朗詹姆斯可以帶領他們回歸。

59. Last year, the Raptors finished with a franchise high 59 wins, but still floundered in the playoffs (again). They responded with a very turbulent offseason, firing Coach of the Year Dwane Casey. They also traded Demar Derozan, the franchise leader in points and games, for Kawhi Leonard. How will they perform this season?
去年,猛龍隊取得了59勝的特權,但仍然在季后賽中再次陷入困境。他們在一個非常動蕩的休賽期回應,解雇了年度最佳教練Dwane Casey。他們還交易了Kawhi Leonard的積分和比賽的特許經營負責人Demar Derozan。這個賽季他們將如何表現?

58. The Portland Trail Blazers had the worst shooting percentage in the restricted area last season at 58.1%.
波特蘭開拓者隊上賽季在禁區內投籃命中率最高,為58.1%。

57. When shooting mid-range jumpers early in the shot clock, the Washington Wizards shot 57%, second highest in the league.
在投籃時間早期投籃命中時,華盛頓奇才隊投籃命中率達到57%,排名聯盟第二。

56. Anthony Davis had 56 more blocks than any other player last season. That’s the same as the gap between 2nd place (Clint Capela) and 25th place (Mason Plumlee).
安東尼戴維斯上賽季比其他球員多出56次蓋帽。這與第二名(Clint Capela)和第25名(Mason Plumlee)之間的差距相同。

55. Despite the Portland Trail Blazers’ porous perimeter defense, opponents only shot 55% at the basket, lowest mark in the league.
儘管波特蘭開拓者隊的外圍防守多孔,但對手只有55%的投籃命中率,這是聯盟中最低的。

54. Rookie Jayson Tatum had an effective field goal percentage of 54.5% when taking between three and six dribbles. He was not far off from Steph Curry’s 55.4 effective field goal percentage for the same shots.
新秀Jayson Tatum在三到六次運球時的投籃命中率達到了54.5%。他與斯蒂芬 - 庫裡的55.4有效投籃命中率相差不遠。

53. This season will be the Chicago Bulls’ 53rd in the NBA, and the team’s 6 titles are third-most ever. While the Bulls’ storied history has helped them lead the league in attendance each of the last nine years, will their fans be willing to sit through another rebuilding season?
本賽季將是芝加哥公牛隊在NBA排名第53位,球隊的6個冠軍頭銜是有史以來第三。雖然公牛的傳奇歷史幫助他們在過去的九年中每次都能領跑聯盟,但他們的球迷是否願意參加另一個重建賽季?

52. Two years removed from a 10-72 season, the Philadelphia 76ers won 52games last year. It was the most in franchise history since Allen Iverson took a 56-win team to the NBA Finals in 2001.
在10-72賽季結束兩年後,費城76人隊去年贏了52場比賽。自從Allen Iverson在2001年以56勝的球隊進入NBA總決賽以來,這是球隊歷史上最多的一次。

51. Harrison Barnes only ranks in the 51st percentile for assists, so far not living up to the playmaker role the Dallas Mavericks envisioned when signing him to a max contract from Golden State.
哈里森巴恩斯在助攻方面僅排在第51百分位,到目前為止還沒有達到達拉斯小牛隊在與金州簽下最高合同時所設想的組織者角色。

50. The Sacramento Kings have won fewer than 50% of their games in each of the last 12 seasons and have had a top-10 draft pick every year since 2008. Can Marvin Bagley III lead the Kings to a respectable record this year?
薩克拉門托國王隊在過去的12個賽季中每場比賽的勝率都不到50%,並且自2008年以來每年都有前10的選秀權。今年Marvin Bagley III能否帶領國王隊取得可觀的戰績?

49. The Portland Trail Blazers assisted only 49.6% of their makes, lowest in the league.
波特蘭開拓者隊僅貢獻了49.6%的成績,是聯盟中最低的。

48. Last year, the Phoenix Suns earned the dubious distinction of the worst loss of any opening night game with a 48 point drubbing.
去年,菲尼克斯太陽隊以48分的慘敗贏得了任何首場比賽最糟糕的失利。

47. The Minnesota Timberwolves won 47 games last season, just edging out the Denver Nuggets for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. The Washington Wizards only needed 43 wins to earn the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
明尼蘇達森林狼隊上賽季贏了47場比賽,剛剛淘汰了丹佛掘金隊在西部聯盟中的八號种子。華盛頓奇才隊只需要43勝就能贏得東部聯盟的八號种子。

46. The Indiana Pacers’ Darren Collison led the league in three point field goal percentage at 46.8%.
印第安納步行者隊的達倫科里森以三分球命中率領先聯盟,命中率為46.8%。

45. Jimmy Butler has logged twenty-six games of playing 45 minutes or more since the 2013-14 season, most in the NBA and eleven more than second place (LeBron James).
自2013-14賽季以來,吉米·巴特勒已經進行了26場比賽,打了45分鐘或更長時間,大部分在NBA,比第二名多出11次(勒布朗詹姆斯)。

44. Joe Ingles of the Utah Jazz shot 44% from the three point line. He was one of eleven shooters who shot above 40% from three while taking over five attempts from three.
猶他爵士隊的Joe Ingles從三分球命中率達到44%。他是十一名射手之一,他們三分球命中率超過40%,三分球命中率超過五分。

43. While the Houston Rockets are averse to shooting mid-range jumpers, when they did they were extremely effective, converting on 43% of them (second highest in league last year).
雖然休斯敦火箭隊不願意射中距離跳投,但是當他們這樣做時他們非常有效,轉換為43%(去年聯賽第二高)。

42. Donte DiVincenzo of the Milwaukee Bucks and Josh Okogie of the Minnesota Timberwolves each recorded the highest max vertical of this draft class at 42 inches. Who will they posterize first?
密爾沃基雄鹿隊的Donte DiVincenzo和明尼蘇達森林狼隊的Josh Okogie分別以42英寸的成績記錄了這次選秀中最高的最高垂直度。誰先將他們分類?

41. Opponents only averaged 41.6 points in the paint against the Philadelphia 76ers, which was the lowest in the league last year. If Joel Embiid can stay healthy, look for the 76ers stout paint defense to continue.
對陣費城76人隊的對手只有41.6分,這是去年聯盟中最低的。如果Joel Embiid可以保持健康,那麼繼續尋找76人粗壯的油漆防守。

40. At age 40, Dirk Nowitzki will play his twenty-first season with the Dallas Mavericks, the most any player has played for one franchise in NBA history.
40歲時,Dirk Nowitzki將與達拉斯小牛隊一起打出他的第21個賽季,這是NBA歷史上最具特權的球員。

39. Despite talk of the Milwaukee Bucks’ immense length, they only grabbed 39.8 rebounds per game, worst in the league last year.
儘管談到了密爾沃基雄鹿隊的巨大空間,他們每場比賽只搶到39.8個籃板,去年聯盟最差。

38. The Dallas Mavericks have been in the NBA for 38 seasons, and the team has been almost perfectly average during that time. Dallas has won 10 more games than it has lost, and recorded a 50.2% winning percentage.
達拉斯小牛隊已經在NBA打了38個賽季,而那支球隊在那個時候幾乎完全平均。達拉斯已經贏得了10場以上的比賽,並取得了50.2%的勝率。

37. Harvard alumni Jeremy Lin has played only 37 games over the last two seasons. He claims that his goal this year is to stay healthy. If he can stay on the court, he can be a spark off the bench behind rookie Trae Young.
哈佛校友林書豪在過去兩個賽季只參加了37場比賽。他聲稱他今年的目標是保持健康。如果他能留在球場上,他可以成為新秀Trae Young背後的替補球員。

36. Players from 36 different colleges were selected in the 2018 NBA Draft. Villanova, Duke, and Kentucky had the most players chosen, with 4 for each.
來自36所不同學院的球員入選2018年NBA選秀。維拉諾瓦,杜克和肯塔基選擇的球員最多,每人4人。

35. The Brooklyn Nets took 35.7 three point attempts per game last season (second highest in the league).
布魯克林籃網隊上賽季場均三分球命中率35.7分(聯盟第二高)。

34. Each of the last 8 Clippers to wear the #34 jersey have left the team after 2 or fewer seasons. Will Tobias Harris reverse the trend and stay with the Clippers long-term?
穿過#34球衣的最後8名快船中的每一個都在2個或更少的賽季後離開球隊。托比亞斯哈里斯會逆轉這種趨勢並長期留在快船隊嗎?

33. 33% of GMs (according this year’s GM survey) believe Steven Adams is the toughest player in the NBA.
33%的總經理(根據今年的通用汽車調查)認為,史蒂文亞當斯是NBA中最強硬的球員。

32. Compared to last season, the Cleveland Cavaliers have 32 fewer nationally televised games. That’s the LeBron effect.
與上賽季相比,克里夫蘭騎士隊的全國電視轉播比賽減少了32場。那是勒布朗效應。

31. The Oklahoma City Thunder had two of the worst free throw shooters in the league last year, with Josh Huestis shooting 30% and Andre Roberson clocking in at 31.6%. Hopefully, Roberson worked on his free throws during his injury rehab.
俄克拉荷馬雷霆隊去年有兩個聯盟中最差的罰球命中率,Josh Huestis投籃命中率為30%,安德烈羅伯森投籃命中率為31.6%。希望羅伯森在傷病康復期間能夠完成罰球。

30. Lonzo Ball shot 30.5% on threes in his rookie season. Ball has reportedly gained strength in the offseason and reduced the sideways swing in his unique shot, potentially setting him up for a three point shooting percentage closer to his college three point percentage (41.2%)
在新秀賽季,Lonzo Ball三分命中率為30.5%。據報導,鮑爾在休賽期獲得了力量,並且在他獨特的投籃中減少了橫向擺動,可能使他的三分投籃命中率接近他的大學三分命中率(41.2%)

29. After Rudy Gobert returned from injury, the Utah Jazz won 29 of its final 35 games, and then beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs. The Jazz could contend for a top seed and even a title this season.
在Rudy Gobert傷愈復出後,猶他爵士隊在最後35場比賽中贏了29場,然後在季后賽中擊敗了俄克拉荷馬雷霆隊。爵士隊本賽季可以爭奪頭號种子甚至冠軍頭銜。

28. Charlotte has had an NBA team for 28 years, but never won a division title. Is this the year Kemba Walker and company finally break through?
夏洛特擁有一支28年的NBA球隊,但從未獲得過分區冠軍。這是Kemba Walker和公司最終突破的一年嗎?

上賽季任意5名球員(最低150分鐘)的最高淨評分為27.5,其中包括猶他爵士隊的Ricky Rubio,Jae Crowder,Rudy Gobert,Joe Ingles和Donovan Mitchell。

26. The Wizards averaged only 26.5 three pointers per game last season, 23rd in the NBA (average of 29). However, the Wizards ranked 4th-best in three point percentage, at 37.5%. Head coach Scott Brooks ran a three point contest on the first day of training camp, so look for Washington to improve its output from deep as they hope to contend in a more open East.
奇才隊上賽季平均每場比賽只有26.5分,在NBA排名第23(平均29分)。然而,奇才隊以三分命中率排名第四,為37.5%。主教練斯科特布魯克斯在訓練營的第一天舉行了三場比賽,所以希望華盛頓能夠從更深的位置提高其產量,因為他們希望在更開放的東部進行比賽。

25. Rajon Rondo had a season-best 25 assists in one game last season. How will his passing prowess mesh with similarly gifted passers LeBron James and Lonzo Ball on the new look Lakers?
Rajon Rondo上賽季在一場比賽中得到了賽季最佳的25次助攻。他的傳球能力將如何與同樣有天賦的傳球手LeBron James和Lonzo Ball在新面貌的湖人身上相遇?

24. The Charlotte Hornets let opponents grab 24.4% of available offensive rebounds, highest in the league. The problem could get even worse with the departure of Dwight Howard.
夏洛特黃蜂隊讓對手搶到24.4%的進攻籃板,是聯盟中最高的。隨著德懷特霍華德的離開,問題可能會更加嚴重。

23. Carmelo Anthony had a career low 23.2% usage rate last season, which could dip even further as he teams up with James Harden and Chris Paul.
卡梅羅·安東尼上賽季的職業生涯最低使用率為23.2%,隨著他與詹姆斯·哈登和克里斯·保羅的合作,他的表現可能會進一步下滑。

22. The New York Knicks averaged 22.5 midrange attempts per game last season, most in the league.
上賽季紐約尼克斯場均出手22.5次中場嘗試,大部分都在聯盟中。

21. Anthony Davis converted a single game high of 21 free throws last season. Getting freebies like this could propel him to the front of the MVP conversation.
安東尼戴維斯上賽季在21次罰球中取得了單場比賽的最高分。獲得這樣的免費贈品可以將他推向MVP對話的前沿。

20. In the annual GM survey, 20% of GMs picked Jamal Murray to have a breakout season. Perhaps he can capture the Most Improved Player award as Victor Oladipo did last year.
在通用汽車的年度調查中,20%的總經理選擇賈馬爾·穆雷(Jamal Murray)進行一個突破季節。也許他可以像Victor Oladipo去年那樣獲得最佳進步球員獎。

19. The Golden State Warriors led the league with 19.3 fast break points per game. To dethrone the champs, teams will have to limit their fast break opportunities.
金州勇士隊以場均19.3分的快攻得分領跑全聯盟。要取消冠軍,球隊將不得不限制他們的快攻機會。

18. The Denver Nuggets let opponents get 18.7 points off their turnovers, highest in the league. Their defense might need to improve to make the playoffs in a competitive Western Conference.
丹佛掘金隊讓對手得失18.7分,是聯盟中最高的。他們的防守可能需要改進才能在競爭激烈的西部聯盟中進入季后賽。

17. Terry Rozier of the Boston Celtics increased his PER (player efficiency rating) to 17.3 in the playoffs last year (compared to 15.1 in regular season) in Kyrie Irving’s absence. Rozier’s role will certainly be reduced as Kyrie returns from injury, but he could still have a huge impact off the bench.
在凱里歐文缺席的情況下,波士頓凱爾特人隊的特里羅西爾去年季后賽的PER值(球員效率等級)提高到17.3(常規賽為15.1)。當Kyrie從傷病中恢復時,Rozier的角色肯定會減少,但他仍然可以在替補席上產生巨大影響。

16. Dwyane Wade will return for a final sweet 16th season.
德懷恩韋德將迎來最後的第16個賽季。

15. The Phoenix Suns had an abysmal assist ratio of 15.1% (second lowest in the league) last year, which might not improve as their point guard situation remains the same.
去年菲尼克斯太陽隊的助攻失誤比率為15.1%(聯盟第二低),由於他們的控衛情況保持不變,這可能不會有所改善。

14. Combined, LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan averaged 14 mid-range jumpers per game last season. The Spurs may dominate the less popular mid-range this season.
上賽季,LaMarcus Aldridge和DeMar DeRozan平均每場比賽有14次中距離跳投。本賽季馬刺可能會主宰不那麼受歡迎的中距離。

13. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson had the highest net rating of a starting backcourt last season at 13.2.
斯蒂芬庫里和克萊湯普森上賽季的後場得分最高,為13.2。

12. The Dallas Mavericks had the lowest turnover percentage at 12.5% last season. Could Luka Donic’s fancy, but also reckless passing increase that turnover percentage?
上賽季達拉斯小牛隊的失誤率最低,為12.5%。 Luka Donic可以看中,但也是魯莽的傳球增加了那個營業額百分比?

11. The Sacramento Kings have $11 million in cap space, currently the largest free space in the NBA. They could take a midseason salary dump in exchange for draft picks.
薩克拉門托國王隊擁有1100萬美元的薪金空間,目前是NBA最大的免費空間。他們可以採取賽季中期薪水來換取選秀權。

10. The Spurs have had a top-10 scoring defense each of the last 5 seasons, including 2 years as the #1 defense in the league. How will they adapt to the losses of Kawhi Leonard and Dejounte Murray?
馬刺隊在過去的5個賽季中都有過前10的得分防守,其中2年是聯盟排名第一的防守球員。他們將如何適應Kawhi Leonard和Dejounte Murray的損失?

9. There are 9 new head coaches. Can Toronto’s Nick Nurse take a 59-win team to a championship, joining Steve Kerr as a head coach who won the championship in his first season?
有9名新的主教練。多倫多的尼克護士能否帶領一支59勝的球隊獲得冠軍,加入史蒂夫科爾作為主教練,在他的第一個賽季贏得冠軍?

8. Vegas gives the LeBron James and the Lakers 8/1 odds to win the championship, which is the lowest odds a LeBron-led team has been given to start the season in the last decade.
拉斯維加斯讓勒布朗詹姆斯和湖人隊以8/1的比分贏得冠軍,這是勒布朗領導的球隊在過去十年中開始本賽季的最低賠率。

7. The Miami Heat are paying 7 different players $10 million or more this season, the most in the NBA.
邁阿密熱火隊本賽季為7名不同的球員支付1000萬美元或更多,這是NBA最多的球員。

6. Dirk Nowitzki needs only 6 more games played to move into fourth place all-time. By the end of the season, Nowitzki could also pass John Stockton for third place, as he only needs to play 34 more games to make the Jazz legend fade away.
德克諾維茨基只需要再打6場比賽就能進入第四名。到賽季結束時,諾維茨基還可以通過約翰斯托克頓獲得第三名,因為他只需要再打34場比賽就能讓爵士隊的傳奇逐漸消失。

5. With the addition of Demarcus Cousins, the Golden State Warriors have 5players who were All-Stars last year. It’s the first time in NBA history a team has 5 players who were All-Stars the previous year.
隨著Demarcus Cousins的加入,金州勇士隊去年有5名全明星球員。這是NBA歷史上第一次擁有5名前一年入選全明星球員的球隊。

4. Kyrie Irving had a career high 4.0 value over replacement player last season, a testament to his improving defense. Can he lead the Celtics to a championship and become the best player in the world as he desires?
上賽季凱里歐文的替補球員價值高達4.0,這證明了他在防守方面的進步。他能帶領凱爾特人隊獲得冠軍並成為世界上最好的球員嗎?

3. The Washington Wizards technically have a Big 3 of max contract players: John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Otto Porter. However, the group has never even reached the Eastern Conference Finals. This offseason, the Wizards brought in Dwight Howard, who has a reputation of creating locker room strife. The Wizards hope that Howard plays like the great center that Wall has repeatedly requested, but if not, turmoil in the nation’s capital would not be a new story.
華盛頓奇才在技術上擁有最大合同球員中的三大球員:約翰沃爾,布拉德利比爾和奧托波特。然而,該組織甚至從未進入過東部決賽。這個休賽期,奇才帶來了德懷特霍華德,他的名聲在於創造更衣室的衝突。奇才隊希望霍華德能像華爾街一再要求的偉大中鋒一樣,但如果不是這樣,那麼這個國家首都的動盪不會是一個新故事。

1. The Los Angeles Lakers have only 1 player that was All-Star last season: LeBron James. Will another Laker join LeBron in the All-Star game this season?

Adding the greatest player in the world to one of the most storied franchises will likely make the Lakers the #1 talked about team. Can LeBron add 1 more championship to his throne?
