Every team wants to play in the finals, but unfortunately, not all have the strength to play for the championship cup. The cup represents a team’s strength and can be held onto if they can continue winning and showing their strength in every game.

With that said, here are the top 5 best NBA teams as of 2022.
- Golden State Warriors
- Boston Celtics
- Milwaukee Bucks
- Memphis Grizzlies
- LA Clippers
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
The Golden State Warriors are one of the American professional basketball teams based in San Francisco. It was founded in 1946 in Philadelphia but moved to San Francisco in 1962. The Warriors are at the top of the NBA chart with a record of 53-29 after beating Boston in the finals with a score of 4 to 2, winning the NBA title for the seventh time. The team won the championship, with Curry, Thompson, Green, and Iguodala winning their fourth championship as members of the Warriors. Their championship odds are presently at +700, and they are ranked as the number one team in the NBA. The Warriors should be just as dangerous in 2022–23, thanks to their players taking the next step and their core staying the same.
Second on the NBA chart is the Boston Celtics, with a record of 51-31. The group was one of the league’s initial eight teams and was founded in 1946. They took a 2-1 lead but lost the next three games and lost to the Golden State Warriors. The group has one of the best records in the basketball league. With their performance and championship odds, Boston will go into the coming season stronger and better.
The Milwaukee Bucks are next in line, with a record of 51-31. Founded in 1968, the team has won two championships since its existence. Their recent win was in 2021 when they faced the Phoenix Sun and won the game, taking home the championship title. They couldn’t get to the top of the chart after being defeated by Boston; however, the Milwaukee Bucks have re-signed some of their old players, bringing back nearly their entire roster. Joe Ingles, who is recovering from an ACL tear, was added by the Bucks. If he can return to his pre-injury form, he might provide some much-needed wing depth.
The team is the only professional basketball team in the state of Tennessee. It finished the last season with a 56–26 record. The greatest offseason move for Memphis was signing star guard Ja Morant to a full five-year max contract. It took a lot of work to re-sign Tyus Jones. Next season, it will be important to keep an eye on the effects of losing Kyle Anderson, a crucial component of their frontcourt rotation.
The Los Angeles Clippers are also one of the five best teams in the NBA. They defeated the Utah Jazz in the Semi-finals, which led them to the finals, but they lost to the Phoenix Suns and missed their chance to play in the finals. The team is fifth on the NBA chart with a record of 42-40 and championship odds of +700. With Kawhi Leonard’s return, the Clippers have assembled one of the most expensive squads in NBA history by signing John Wall, extending Ivica Zubac with a raise, and re-signing Nicolas Batum and Amir Coffey. The Clippers do have one open spot for a training-camp competition, which might go to a replacement for Isaiah Hartenstein in the middle as Zubac’s backup.
