The 2018-19 season is finally upon us and there are some major NBA storylines that must be discussed like what is happening in Phoenix? I don’t run an NBA team but I get the feeling that firing your GM a few days before the season starts is less than ideal. Also, someone has yet to explain to me what happened to Devin Booker’s hand.
Are the Utah Jazz ready to become a powerhouse in the West? Can the Trailblazers keep running back the same team of undercover cops? Is Luka Doncic God’s gift to the game of basketball? (yes.)
Here are the 10 most interesting NBA storylines heading into the 2018-19 season:
1. Can LeBron James and Michael Beasley Coexist
Every season one franchise makes a massive player acquisition and we all have the same ‘but there’s only one basketball’ take. How can James Harden and Chris Paul, two guys who lead the league in assists every season, possibly play alongside each other?

This summer, the Los Angeles Lakers acquired both LeBron James AND Michael Beasley and honestly, who knows how these two future Hall of Famers will play with one another. Who gets the final shot? How will LeBron handle the fact that the answer to that previous question is obviously Michael Beasley?
