The NBA season is now in the second week and just like that, time flies.
After an action-packed week of opening matches, we are finally getting a read on some of the teams that will be competing this year.
The 2022-2023 season looks to usher in a new era of basketball.
The old guard is starting to slowly fade and the newer, younger, players are starting to get the spotlight.
Although the veteran legends like Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry are still more than relevant in today’s game, look for a bunch of these younger talents to step up in a big way.
There isn’t supposed to be a shift in the game while such dominant players remain, but all thirty-two teams are now more competitive than ever.
Understanding how to pace oneself for the season is now reaching most players within the league and with that comes the explosion during the more important games.
A lot of these first month matchups will showcase the best talent of the league as they get up and running. Stake.com will have our weekly promotions and bet-builders as always, so don’t hesitate and check us out now!
