We are getting closer and closer to NBA training camps and then, shortly thereafter, the NBA regular season too.
This promises to be one intense season with a lot of returning stars and many who have a lot to prove.
To some of the biggest names in the league, the 2022-23 season might be the most important one yet.
Kyrie, KD, Harden, John Wall, Trae Young, + others hooping. 🔥

A few of those massive names met up to practice and play together recently.
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, James Harden, John Wall, Trae Young, and other NBA superstars were seen on the court putting up shots, blocking one another, talking smack, and getting ready for a new season.
It’s not only wild to see all of those guys together in one place, but it’s also wild to think that any of them could end up being an NBA champion this year.
The Race Is On
Now that the drama is behind them, it cannot be denied that both Irving and Durant have a strong chance of making it to the Eastern Conference Finals, if not beyond.
Harden is supposedly stepping things up in a new way this year and his Philadelphia 76ers could finally make good on a promise they’ve made to Philly fans for ages.
Wall has a lot to prove: he sat out last year and is returning to the NBA with one of the most promising teams in the league, the Los Angeles Clippers.
Meanwhile, Young now has a red-hot teammate on his side (Dejounte Murray) and is ready to put his last troubled season behind him and turn his Atlanta Hawks into a Cinderella story yet again.
Each of these players has particular skills and particular backstories that make them all worth watching in the upcoming season.
