Find Out What Happened in the First Week of 2021 NBA Season

October 27 19:19 2021

It has already been a week since the 2021 NBA season started. Even with several days before the tip off, NBA has been a subject of off-court headlines about anti-vaccination, protests, and even personal life inscriptions. But since the real action has begun, game highlights are now frantically greeting the fans.

The 2021 NBA season started with high spirits. Superstars from each team brought out their usual A-game to earn their first wins. There have also been unlikely players who are now considered as dark horses early in the season. And who would’ve thought that a number of rookies will be able to get some praises from their veteran teammates and coaches?

So, if one missed out the fun, here’s a list of sports experts’ three most favorite first-week NBA highlights:

  1. The straight arrow defense of Davion Mitchell

Sacramento Kings’ 23-year old rookie, Davion Mitchell, had quite an impressive run towards defending his opposing guards. His provoking approach in stealing the ball and making plays for his teammates is making their competitors cramped and distracted.

Very early in his NBA career, sports journalists are already calling him a defensive bully- a good news if you’re a Kings fan, and the entire opposite for their future opponents. The question is, can this rookie maintain his intrusive stance throughout the season?

  1. Tyler Herro aka Miami Heat’s hero

Heat’s sophomore, Tyler Herro, has been putting up excellent statistics since the pre-season. In an exhilarating match against the Indiana Pacers, Herro became Heat’s hero and sent his roster to overtime only to lose. However, it’s still an exceptional game for Herro as he notched his first 30-point, 10-board game as part of the team’s non-starters.

It seems like the Miami Heat has put themselves in the underdog category. Their lineup, especially the second unit, is very sparse. But with continuous training and chemistry building, who knows, Miami Heat’s hero can maybe find his own sidekicks in days to come.

  1. It’s up to Paul George now

With the Kawhi Leonard-less Clippers squad, fans can only hope that Paul George would play his one hundred percent every single game, more so, to an MVP caliber. Good news is, he is doing all that in their first two games. Paul George put up monster numbers to show that he can lead the Clippers. Unfortunately, these efforts still weren’t translated into wins.

Paul George still has a lot to prove to the champs trophy-hungry Clippers squad and fans. Since the superstar forward, Kawhi Leonard, is out for the team indefinitely, Paul George shouldn’t just pull out monumental individual statistics for the sake of it- as these numbers won’t be converted into the team’s success record.

This NBA season sure is exciting. The league’s first week did not disappoint. It is full of unpredictable scenarios and occurrences. And as a fan, nobody would want to miss all the frolic.
