The NBA fan base has soared to new heights across the world in recent times, especially in South Asian countries. This year, NBA announced that it would commemorate its 75th anniversary throughout the 2021–22 season, a feat that very few leagues are able to achieve in the dynamic world of sports. For basketball enthusiasts, they can watch NBA live on Voot Select, Vh1, and MTV. After watching more than half of the season, here are five players that have been balling from the season start and will be a delight to watch for the rest of the season.
1. Kevin Durant
Currently, Durant sits at the top of the points per game table with 29.3 points per game.
There is no doubt that Durant right now is one of the best players if not the best. Before getting sidelined with a torn Achilles injury in the 2019 NBA Finals, Kevin Durant was the clear No. 2 in the league. After? Durant somehow proved to reach his elite form even after a heel injury that has changed the career trajectory of greats that have come before him.
2. LeBron James
He’s the most well-rounded player of this generation and James’ chase to be the greatest of all time keeps him motivated to still be among the best players in Year 19. Even at 37 he is one of the best players and has averaged 26.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 6.5 assists in 21 games this season. With these stats, LeBron undoubtedly is one of the most fun players to watch for the rest of the season.
3. Stephen Curry
Steph Curry cemented himself as the best shooter of all time when he broke Ray Allen’s 3-point record in December 2021. He has averaged 27.7 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.3 rebounds in 32 games this season. He was winning games all by himself at times last season and is now leading the Warriors back atop the Western Conference in MVP form. There is no doubt about his calibre and the way he has been performing for warriors. It is going to be really interesting to watch him for the rest of the season.
4. James Harden
At the beginning of the 2020–21 season, Harden was traded to the Brooklyn Nets as part of a four-team trade. With the Nets, he was named to his ninth consecutive All-Star game. James Harden has averaged 22.0 points, 9.8 assists, and 8.0 rebounds in 28 games this season. Harden has been in phenomenal form this season and currently sits at the top of the assists per game table with 10 assists per game. With the form he is in you cannot take your eyes off him for the rest of the season.
5. Giannis Antetokounmpo
After winning two MVPs, Giannis Antetokounmpo one-upped himself with an NBA Finals MVP award last season. He has proven himself to be one of the best players of all time
Antetokounmpo right now sits third at the points per game with 28.5 points per game with only Durant and LeBron ahead of him. With his given track record and the form he has been in the last few seasons you have got to see him for the rest of the remainder of the 2021-22 season.
