As soon as March and April come around, the NBA playoffs, Play-In Tournament, and the beach season are all over.
There are only three options. The big individual award races and the players’ last chance to show off for free agency or contract extensions in 2022 add to the excitement, though. As the NBA season comes to an end, many things are going to make it even more exciting.
It’s hard to tell if the conference is higher or lower in the hierarchy. There is only one team in the league that has proven itself to be the best. They get to play all of their playoff games at home. It would be a race to the finish line with a coin flip between the two teams.
This is fun to look at in light of the upcoming playoffs. On the other hand, that isn’t the case, and there may be a lot of problems that need to be worked out by the end of the week.
Will Lakers make the play-in tournament?
It was never even thought that the Lakers would be close to missing the playoffs. Even the harshest critics of how they were built didn’t think that they would be close to not making it. Because LeBron James is having a great season that would earn him the Kia MVP award if the Lakers win, the crystal ball didn’t see this coming. With a tough remaining schedule, LeBron’s weakness both physically and mentally, and Anthony Davis’ inability to recover from an injury that kept him out for nearly half the season, there is no way the LA Lakers will win this season. Normally, the Lakers have a lot of room for error. For the first time in a long time, they have no room for error. If they don’t finish strong, they will face a harsh reality and the embarrassment that comes with it.
How about the Kia MVP ?
Devin Booker and Jayson Tatum both have a good case, but it looks like Embiid, Giannis, and Nikola Jokic are the front-runners for the more important individual award, which is more important. However, a strong case can be made for Embiid, Giannis, and Nikola Jokic to win the game. A lot of people think it will happen again this year. The Joker snatched the trophy from the hands of the winner last season. Joel Embiid, a star for the Philadelphia 76ers, is in the most interesting situation. Keep him healthy, the Sixers are likely to keep him out on the court for the rest of this game. It could hurt his chances of getting the MVP award if they rest him.
How is the comeback of Paul George?
After he was hurt, Paul George led the Clippers with 34 points in their win over the Jazz.
He came back this week after missing two games because of an elbow injury. He helped the Clippers beat the Jazz in an exciting game. For the first time in a long time, the Clippers don’t have an All-Star on their team. Leonard hasn’t been able to play since he had knee surgery last summer. Even though the Clippers did well in the playoffs, he doesn’t seem likely to come back. However, even though he lost two important players, George will still have an impact on both sides of the field.
