The controversy over vaccination in the top basketball division overshadowed the start of the 75th season of the NBA. Basketball player Keri Irving will not be vaccinated against the coronavirus, which means he is not welcome with his Brooklyn Nets.
Distracting attention from the sports scene on opening night. Just think: defending champion Milwaukee Bucks will start with new star Giannis Antetokounmue tonight against the East’s biggest competitor, the Nets. Without Irving, but still starring Kevin Durant and James Harden.
And in the West, fans could instantly lick their fingers in the confrontation between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors. In other words, superstar LeBron James vs superstar Stephen Curry.
The sniper is in the picture
Widely regarded as the greatest shooter of all time, Curry is a sham head of the sports revolution in basketball. Where in the past, basket dribbling (Magic Johnson), power jumping (Michael Jordan) or brute physical strength (Shaquille O’Neal) determined success, Curry often circled.
What are the characteristics of curry? A trick here, a trick there, a smooth dribble to the basket and then… a step back across the three-point line. Curry made three throws the norm in the NBA. He is the king.
