Our wishes for the NBA and basketball in 2022

If we obviously wish you health – damn COVID-19 – for the new year, we also have some wishes for the NBA and basketball in general. Let’s go.

Let Rudy Gobert win a fourth DPoY title to make history and stop being trolled by rockets like PatBev.

– Playoffs as uncertain, surprising and interesting to follow as those of 2021, but without the shitty injuries.

– A surprise return from Kawhi Leonard, just to spice up the fight in the West. The worst part is that if he comes back well, the Clippers may be the favorites …

– And also a return to the top for Klay Thompson. Because there, for once, it is sure that it will come back and it is sure that the Warriors will be favorites if it quickly finds its feelings.

– A rematch between the Bucks and the Nets. An anthology series. Almost a final before the hour.

– A victory at Euro 2022 in the final against Spain. Or Slovenia. Or Serbia. Or Liechtenstein. Whatever as long as we can regain almost 10 years after the epic of 2013.

Evan Fournier French FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup 2023

– A final for girls at the 2022 World Cup in Australia. Because not all nations are lucky enough to be able to have two teams as ambitious as us.

– That COVID-19 leaves us alone, already so that we come back to life but also so that the NBA season looks like something.

– That we stop with the shitty statistics like “So-and-so became the first player to compile 62 points, 14 rebounds and 27 assists in 7 matches”. It’s very tiring. The very illustration of this desire of the NBA to constantly celebrate something.

– That the NBA give its criteria when it makes lists. It will save us some overplayed indignation and real misunderstandings. And that will force him to provide somewhat more consistent lists. Best is the one who has reached the highest level at some point in their career (and what are the duration and – if necessary – the frequency of that moment (s)?) Or the one who has had the best career? In which case, what sub-criteria do they value?

– But, however, that we stop being indignant about everything, all the time. There are only 24 All-Stars (can you feel it coming, the big “snub” ball?) And a few rewards to go. Several players deserve them, but more often than not there are no huge scandals.

– Euroleague playoffs for ASVEL and / or Monaco. History to vibrate a little more.

– A one-on-one tournament at the All-Star Game, just to spice things up a bit. Well, we want to see the big name shatter eh, not just Alec Burks vs Josh Hart or Bismack Biyombo vs Frank Kaminsky duels.

Lebron james

– That LeBron overtake Karl Malone in 2nd place of the best all-time scorers. Already because it would be good for his legacy and then because anything that can push the Mailman – a formidable player but an execrable human – back in the rankings is good to take.

– More importantly, that Nando De Colo return early enough so that he can play the ten games this season necessary for him to become at the end of 2022 the greatest scorer in the history of the European cups. And that he lets us in the process some beautiful boxes and some superb DeColades. Because LeBron, we love it a lot, but Nando is the legend, the real one.

– F ***** beautiful Mooks to offer you. Well, we can already guarantee that it will happen: D

Luka Doncic Dallas Mavericks Kristaps Porzingis

– That Zion and Luka take more inspiration from LeBron than Shaq when planning their schedule for the offseason.

– That Isaiah Thomas finally finds a club where to end his career properly. Even a Euroleague or Champions League club, eh.

– A Rookie Game with defense and no 137 alley-oops attempts. We are counting on Scottie Barnes to lead by example.

– That we end once and for all with video refereeing every two minutes and let the players play!

– The abolition of City Stadiums.

– An All-Star Game with defense.

– The abolition of the Timberwolves.
