Atlanta transformed last year from a simple competitor in the East two years ago and became an undisputed protagonist in the conference. And in the whole league. But, of course, no one expected that the Hawks would reach the finals of the Eastern Conference led by an excellent Trae Young. So, of course, they were eliminated at that stage by the champions to be Milwaukee Bucks.
All this happened after the Hawks started the season wholly wrong and even changed coach in the early stages; McMillan succeeded Loyd Pierce to change the team’s fate. Since taking over, Coach McMillan has done great things, giving the ball to Trae Young and the team’s keys.
Collins is fantastic in the paint, assisted by Capela, while Bogdanovic and Huerter guarantee that the hawks will be a constant threat outside the 7.25 line.
The Mavericks faced many problems last season, especially with the injuries Porzingis faced. It also felt that the locker rooms’ atmosphere wasn’t great, with Porzingis asking to be traded before the end of the season. Rick Carlisle left the Dallas bench after 11 years as the responsible person for the underachieving in the season.
Mavericks had a great first round in the playoffs (with Porzingis missing all games) before being eliminated by the Clippers (4-3) in the semifinals of the western conference. Now we will experience Jason Kidd’s era in the Mavericks. Following Carlisle’s dismissal, the franchise moved to acquire a man that knows them well. He was an NBA Champion with the Mavericks in 2011 (he was their primary point guard alongside the great Dirk Nowitzki). At the same time, Luka Doncic will be asked to prove that the bookies reasonably consider him the main favourite for the MVP award in the regular season.
