I can’t wait for the NBA season and it’s not only because that I just miss it. Main reason is that this season is expected to be one of the best in the modern history of basketball! Here is why:
Kevin Durant in Golden State Warriors
Despite winning a record 73 games last season, the Warriors just don’t get to the line as often as the other championship contenders. Stephen Curry had thirteen 40-point games last season. There was only one player in NBA that achieved more. Guess who?
LeBron James signed a new multiyear contract
The salary in the first year of James’ deal will be $31 million, making James the highest-paid player in the NBA for the first time in his career. The salary for the 2017–18 season will top $33 million, making him the highest-paid player in a single season in league history, exceeding the $33 million Michael Jordan earned with the Chicago Bulls in the 1997–98 season. We all know LeBron’s character, he will do everything to prove that he is not only the highest-paid player, but also the one that deserves his paycheck.
Chicago Bulls — underdog that isn’t quite an underdog
Rajon Rondo will be an All Star. Remember this sentence. In 72 games (in all of which he appeared from the first whistle) Rondo averaged 11.9 points, six rebounds and a whopping 11.7 assists per game. If that last stat looks pretty, that’s because it is. In my opinion he can lead Bulls to the playoffs and maybe even further!
