NBA Power Rankings: Way-too-early look at how teams stack up for 2019-20 originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com
So, how can the league possibly follow up that postseason? Get ready for the real craziness, as this offseason is shaping up to be absolutely bonkers.
Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, and Kemba Walker head a free agent class loaded with All-Stars, while Anthony Davis could find himself in Boston, Los Angeles, or parts unknown sometime soon.
So with all of those dominoes ready to fall, how will things shake out next season? Will Golden State reclaim its spot atop the NBA pecking order? Vegas doesn't think so, with the Lakers - who missed the playoffs this season - installed as early favorites for next year.
