We start the list with the defending champions itself, as Toronto Raptors would be looking to start off their season with a bang.

And, in order to do that, they will need their top players to fire, especially in the form of Pascal Siakam.

He has the physique, as well as sound running and dribbling abilities to assist, which would definitely play key role.

Kemba Walker

Kemba Walker looks to keep the legacy of Celtics alive

Moving on to the record champions, it's been a long time since Celtics have had their hands on the coveted title.

As far as the upcoming season goes, we believe point guard Kemba Walker is likely to play a huge role in reliving their successful legacy.

LeBron James aims to bring Lakers at par with Celtics

When it comes to the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James is the only name that comes to the mind as a no-brainer.

The 34-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down, and his ability to dunk, courtesy his fine gameplay and skills, makes him the toughest player in the league and a guard's nightmare.

If Lakers can win it this season, it's for him.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Greek Freak looks to give Bucks a new identity

Milwaukee Bucks came up with an uplifting, but a shocking performance last season, as they managed to finish atop in the Eastern Conference table.

Nonetheless, most of it was possible owing to the splendid performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo, as the forward has the unique ability to come up with all-round performance.

Having finished with 28 points last season, he is bound to improve it.

Kawhi Leonard

There's no doubt that Kawhi Leonard played a great role in handing Raptors their maiden championship.

However, his decision to join Los Angeles Clippers as a free agent was certainly surprising.

Meanwhile, it is to be noted that Leonard could form a healthy partnership with Paul George, which has certainly raised quite a few eyebrows and could be crucial for Clippers this season.
