This hoddle is for all you basketball fans out there —
The NBA season is back! And with it the annual tradition of the four major US sports leagues lining up. But we’re even luckier with college football and Spurs. Great days indeed.
Since that 2021 season, only Devin Booker remains. Out are Deande Ayton, Chris Paul and head coach Monty Williams.
In: Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal and head coach Luke Vogel.
The Suns have the most dangerous shooters in the game. That’s undeniable. How Vogel - who I mostly consider a defensive head coach - manages that will be interesting to see. Expectations are sky high.
It’s a title or nothing.
The Eastern Conference has also had a major reshuffle with Jrue Holiday joining the Boston Celtics and Damian Lillard teaming up with Giannis Antetokounmpo.
And the most exciting player to watch this year - Victor Wembanyama - will be turning heads with the San Antonio Spurs (We don’t like those Spurs).
I’m excited for this season. I’m not quite sold on Beal, but it was right to move on from Paul and Ayton. And perhaps Williams took this team as far as he could’ve.
Maybe this is the year all that suffering will be worth it.
