This is a type of ordinary communication or feedback with the readers. Do not forget that there are many opinions. It doesn’t have to be one of them that matches yours, that’s the beauty of it.

Rookie basketball section author Andrey Antson talks about Boston’s playoff prospects. Reaction to user comment

“A new opportunity to once again fly out of the playoffs,” expressed the opinion of the user under the nickname. paradise dream.

“It’s like a new opportunity.” Jason Tatum talks about the upcoming NBA season

I fully share the concerns of the user. Boston, in my opinion, has once again not solved its main problem: the lack of a good point guard with excellent playing skills. The Celtics have had a great roster for years in a row with enough depth – there are a lot of players who can defend very well, who can shoot effectively from different distances. But there is no “brain” on the site that links everything into a single working system.

Well, if you don’t have such a player, then you need an excellent systemic coach, the one the Celts had in the 2021/2022 season. As a result, an intimate scandal, the dismissal of Ime Udoki, and the management decided to hire a young coach from their own system again. Everything went well with Udoka, but not yet with Joe Mazzulla. Problems in the series with Atlanta, seven games with the loss of Philadelphia, where Harden gave a total of two or three good performances, and Embiid suffered from sores again. Then a series loss to Miami with a bunch of undrafted players and a not-so-great version of Jimmy Butler. I guess if Ime had kept coaching the team, Boston would have made it to the finals for the second year in a row.

A smart point guard and/or smart mentor is especially needed for Jason Tatum, who impresses with his erratic playoff play. A point guard like Chris Paul would help Tatum stop taking ineffective shots.

However, relative parity has been established in the league, which means that many teams have real chances for the championship. The fate of the title largely depends on external circumstances, so if Boston is lucky in health and its rivals are not, we may see the Celtics’ 18th championship next season.

Thinking of Patrick Beverly. What does he really represent? Andrey Antson explains to the reader

“Patrick, are you afraid of missing the playoffs for the second year in a row?” asked users aplosixis. But Beverly barely reads The Championship, even though she played in Russia.

Philadelphia thrives in adversity.” Patrick Beverley on the James Harden situation

Patrick Beverley is the kind of player you hate when he’s on the other side, but love when he’s on your team. You can understand all the emotions about the NBA veteran, but you can’t help but admire his playoff streak. From the 2012/2013 season, when Patrick entered the NBA, to the 2021/2022 season, the defender always finished in the playoffs, except for the 2017/2018 season, where he missed almost the entire year due to injury. Beverley had to go through a difficult path before entering the league, but this allowed him to develop some incredible mental qualities. It is these characteristics that allow it to continue to be in demand among the serious teams in the league.

The 35-year-old guard will play next season with Philadelphia. Amid the James Harden drama, the team’s prospects are unclear, but assuming Embiid stays, there’s no reason to believe the 66ers won’t make the playoffs. That is, during the postseason, Beverley’s experience and psychology are especially important. However, it should be noted that age outweighs the player.

Last season, the basketball player showed the worst result of his career in terms of Win Shares / 48 (the contribution of a player to the final victories of the team in 48 minutes of play. – Approx. “Championship”) – 0, 79, while the league average is 1.00. Perhaps next season will be the last for Patrick, who, after the end of his sports career, will focus fully on his own podcast.

Five of the dirtiest players in the modern NBA

Stephen Curry is Rick Barry’s mascot, or Who is the face of the NBA according to Andrey Antson

NBA legend explains why Stephen Curry is the face of the league

We could safely accuse Rick Barry of being biased toward the Warriors, where he spent the best years of his career, if the legend didn’t present us with an interesting argument to consider. Barry says that Curry is the true face of the league, as he doesn’t have inhuman data and athleticism, like LeBron James, which means it’s easier for an ordinary fan to associate with him. Curry is 188cm tall and already easily claims the title of best player in league history under 190cm or even 195cm.

Furthermore, Stephen revolutionized basketball, influencing not only the league, but all schools, universities, academies. The vast majority of kids and teens now want to play like Curry, not LeBron. Everyone is practicing three-point shots, which have long been prized by youngsters more than LeBron’s good dunks. Every year in the draft we will see more and more shooters and not slashers.

However, LeBron’s name is still much more famous than Curry’s. The king is still fighting for the title of the greatest basketball player of all time, and Stephen will never come close to that title, although by the end of his career I think he will earn his place in the top 10 basketball players of all time. . LeBron has been playing since 2003: he is ubiquitous, he is eternal, he unites generations.

I propose a boring conclusion: there are two indisputable sides of the league in the league. The problem, rather, is that so far neither player has been able to come close to the status of Curry and LeBron, and both are already near the end of their careers.
