The talent level in the NBA is as even as it’s ever been.

Though parity remains an evergreen theme as the season progresses, it’s not because teams are short on talent – it’s actually the opposite. 

The Indiana Pacers, for example, are exceeding expectations hovering above .500 in January with rookie Bennedict Mathurin stepping up with an immediate impact. Switching conferences, the Sacramento Kings are in a similar position because they piled up on depth and rookie Keegan Murray has been extremely efficient.
