Who is the best team in the NBA? No, it is not the Miami Heat. It’s not the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s not the Oklahoma City Thunder or the San Antonio Spurs. The best team in the NBA is the Memphis Grizzlies. After a tough 101-92 loss to the hated Los Angeles Clippers, the Memphis Grizzlies have won 8 games in a row. 3 of the 8 wins have been against the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, and the New York Knicks. The Grizzlies, Spurs, and the Heat are the only 3 teams with 8 wins in the NBA. The Spurs have 2 losses while the Grizzlies only have 1. And the Grizzlies defeated the Heat 104-86 making the Memphis Grizzlies king of the hill for now at least. It is important to recognize that the NBA season is 82 games long but for a team that has had to suffer two game 7 Playoff losses in the last 2 seasons, a fast start is just what the doctor ordered. For this blue-collared team from Memphis, these early season wins have them off to the right start for the 2012-2013 NBA Season.
