Over the last few months, the Limited Upside podcast has been previewing all 30 NBA teams in preparation for the 2016-17 NBA season. While most of the national storylines center around the Warriors and Cavaliers, we realize that every fan base has hopes, fears, and excitement for the season. Maybe there are only a couple teams that can win the title, but there are 30 markets ready for basketball.
