The 2022-23 NBA season is far enough along at this point that we can start getting an idea of what trends have some substance to them, and which might be mostly smoke and mirrors. And in a season where many teams seemed likely to tank for prized prospect Victor Wembanyama, few are playing poorly and fewer on purpose.
