In the spirit of Thanksgiving, it’s time to take a look at the biggest thing each and every NBA team should be thankful for so far in the 2019-20 season.

Happy Thanksgiving, NBA fans! While the association we know and love will be off for Turkey Day, we’ve got a packed slate Wednesday night leading into a holiday notorious for stuffing, side dishes and big-time dunks (into bowls of gravy, of course).

Thanksgiving is such an enjoyable holiday because it’s all about indulging in good food and being thankful for the good things in life. And in that spirit, before the last batch of games leading into Thursday, it’s time to apply it to the early 2019-20 NBA season.

At this point, nobody’s been eliminated from the playoff picture and everyone’s season is still barely getting into the full swing of things. By that same token, however we’re also approaching the quarter mark of this new campaign, which gives us a larger sample size to examine now.

The question is, while every team still has hope for this season, what should each team be thankful for? From the title contenders to hopeful playoff teams to likely bottom-feeders, it’s time to go through all 30 teams and give thanks.
