Who will rule the NBA’s Eastern Conference at the end of the 2022-23 season?

·2 min read

In the offseason, every NBA player of every NBA team (with a few notable exceptions) is in the best shape of their lives, with every team in the league still in the running to win the 2023 NBA Championship. But after the regular season starts, the rose-colored glasses come off as reality sets in, with each passing game inching us closer to what the order of the league will look like by the end of the season.

In the NBA’s Eastern Conference, the Boston Celtics are by most accounts expected to dominate in their 2022-23 campaign. But how will they stack up against their peers in the East, and how will their peers stack up against each other to set the table for the 2022 NBA Playoffs?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast got together with guest Zak Noble of the “Noble and Roosh” Ball Is Life podcast to try and suss out the order of the East for next season.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to see what they came up with.
