1. Warriors win the FMVP again

The 2022 finals will undoubtedly belong to the Warriors and Curry. When most people believed that the Warriors had started to go downhill, they used the fourth championship in eight years to fight back all the doubters. Of course, there is also the MVP trophy in the finals of Curry, which is of historical significance as the Warriors won the championship. With 31.2 points per game and 43.7% three-point shooting rate during the finals, Curry won the FMVP trophy without controversy and made up for the last regret of his basketball career.

2. The Suns changed owners

In the summer of 2022, Sun boss Robert Sawyer was in great trouble. Savor was banned by the league and forced to start the process of selling his team because he was found to have published racist and misogynistic remarks. At the end of December 2022, Sun finally found a suitable buyer. Matt Ishibia, president of the famous mortgage company in the United States, decided to invest 4 billion dollars to buy the Suns and became the new leader of the team.

3. The Lord of the Rings died

On August 1, 2022, legendary NBA player Bill Russell died at the age of 88. In Russell’s 13 seasons with Celtic, he won the MVP of the regular season 5 times, was selected as an All Star 12 times, and led the team to the finals 12 times, winning 11 championship trophies. Russell is also the first black coach in NBA history, and an outstanding representative of the African American equal rights movement. His deeds on and off the court have inspired countless African Americans. After Russell died, the NBA official quickly announced that he would retire his No. 6 jersey permanently in all teams.

4. Durant farce during the off-season

Without Durant’s farce of leaving the team, the off-season market in 2022 might be particularly cold. But it was also because of this farce that the Nets once came to the brink of disintegration, to the edge of the cliff to be completely rebuilt. However, under the excellent mediation of the management of the Nets, KD gave up the idea of leaving when the transaction could not be balanced all the time. With this as a starting point, the situation of the Nets began to improve and gradually returned to the championship group this season.

5. Off season of Jazz dual core championship

In the summer of 2022, in addition to the Nets and Durant, another active team in the player market is the Utah Jazz. Under the guidance of General Manager Danny Angie, the Jazz team first fired its coach, Quinn Snyder, and then sent away the two core players, Gerber and Mitchell. In this process, the Jazz has reaped great rewards, while Mitchell and Gerber have developed very differently after leaving the Jazz. Gobel’s data in Wolves shrank. As for Mitchell, he ushered in a new life in Cavaliers, presenting an unprecedented highlight of his career.

6. The European Cup of “Three Super Triumph”

The European Cup in September 2022 has become a grand stage for NBA stars from all walks of life to show their talents in the national team. Alphabet, Jokic and Doncic, the super giants of the NBA, also led their respective national teams to attack the championship. But in the end, the three stars failed in the knockout stage. It was the starless Spanish team that finally won the cup with its excellent team strength, and at the end of the year, it surpassed the American men’s basketball team in the ranking list of the national team and ranked first in the world.

7. Simmons and Harden exchange owners

Before the trade deadline of last season, the Nets and the 76ers made a shocking transaction. In this transaction, Harden went to Philadelphia to partner Enbid, and Ben Simmons became Durant’s and Owen’s new teammates. After joining the new team, Harden and Simmons have both gone through a difficult run in period, but after adapting and adjusting, they have gradually found a new position and realized a new way of life this season.

8. Popovich took the first place in the history of winning coaching

On March 12, 2022, after the Spurs’ 104-102 victory over the Jazz, the legendary coach Greg Popovich of the Spurs ushered in an extremely important, perhaps the last important milestone in his coaching career. After this win, the number of victories in his career as a coach reached 1336. As a result, he surpassed Nelson and became the head coach with the most victories in NBA history.

9. Jokic won the back-to-back MVP

On May 9, 2022, the NBA officially announced the MVP winner of the 2021-22 regular season. Denver Nuggets center Jokic defeated Enbid and Brother Alphabet, completing the MVP award. Last season, Jokic played 74 regular season games on behalf of Denver. In the 33.5 minute average playing time, he was able to get 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds and 7.9 assists, and became the first player in NBA history to get 2000 points, 1000 rebounds and 500 assists in a single season. In addition, his PER efficiency value of 32.8 per game also created a record high.

10. Ginobili enters the Hall of Fame
