Interesting season. LeBron James’ LA Lakers, with a roster filled with veterans and future Hall of Famers, missed the playoffs. Then there were the Finals-bound Boston Celtics, featuring a squad of players in their 20s. Covid was still in the picture. Not so? Just ask the Nets’ Kyrie Irving, who was forbidden (until March) from playing home games in New York state. Joel Embiid’s Sixers won 51 games despite chemistry issues on the court and off-court drama with Ben Simmons. While Chris Paul, LeBron James, NBA MVP Nikola Jokic, and DeMar DeRozan set NBA records, the real story were Steve Kerr’s Warriors, returning to and winning the Finals with Klay Thompson (out since June, 2019), Draymond Green, 2015 ROY Andrew Wiggins, and Stephen Curry (Finals MVP).
