Several of the NBA’s top storylines have already practically been sorted out at this point.

It’s not bold to say that the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers are favorites heading into the second half of the season. It doesn’t require too much audacity to call Giannis Antetokounmpo the favorite to reel in back-to-back MVP awards. You won’t turn too many heads saying that Nick Nurse is a lead candidate for the Coach of the Year awards.

However, if you dig deeper, there are definitely some possible scenarios that make the second half of the NBA season more intriguing. Here are five of those stories and how they could ultimately turn out.
