The five NBA moments of 2019, according to Antonio Gil

The year 2019 lowers the closure and is a good time to look back and remember the best moments lived in the NBA at that time. Winning baskets, prizes, signings, titles … There has been everything in the last 365 days, but this has been, for me, the highlight in the best basketball league in the world.

A Greek MVP and freak

I was not supposed to be there. The way of Giannis Antetokounmpo until he ended up holding the trophy that crowned him as MVP of the regular season It was not exactly a path of roses, and its achievement was a way of saying that you never have to throw in the towel. We talk about the MVP of absolute improvement.
From engaging in street sales in the streets of Sepolia to becoming the best player in the world. A Disney movie come true. Their numbers of 27.7 points (57.8% in field shots), 12.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.3 steals are just the perfect icing on a cake that still has many portions left.

Damian Lillard’s sly farewell

It’s funny that Paul George’s last play in the Oklahoma City Thunder uniform is this one. The Californian was an exceptional spectator of one of the biggest hesitations of the year and, possibly of all time, in the NBA. Damian Lillard scored a buzzer beater monstrous that eliminated those of OKC after a series of playoffs most intense, with ‘Dame’ as one of the most visible heads of the duel.
His gesture saying goodbye to the rival players after seeing how the ball crossed the net with the marker already indicating 00:00 on the clock, is pure poetry trol. After that drink, Paul George headed to Los Angeles Clippers to join Kawhi Leonard and Russell Westbrook, with whom Lillard had talks about trash-talk epic, he was transferred to the Houston Rockets to play alongside his friend James Harden. It was the end of an era in Oklahoma City.

‘Kawhi Leonard’s photo’

It is a poster image. to frame and contemplate a while from time to time. As a work of art. Kawhi Leonard pushing the ball with his eyes while biting his tongue hard. Joel Embiid panic-faced, watching the season go by on slides before the Philadelphia 76ers caught the rod and tackle to necessarily go fishing. ‘The guy dressed in a suit’, as he called himself, preparing his celebration with the big-handed hero, both squatting. The rest is history.
While the horn indicated the end of the regulatory time of the seventh game of the semifinals of the Eastern Conference between the Toronto Raptors and the Sixers, the ball bounced infinitely in the hoop, before ending up falling into the basket and unleashing the madness between the Canadian team players, fans, Drake, ‘the ones in the bottle’ and anyone who loves basketball playoffs.

Marc’s drink

Marc Gasol arrived transferred to Toronto Raptors and automatically fit into a team with aspirations to win the ring. It became a key piece for the Canadian team and its presence on the court was decisive for the achievement of the title. The same as his brother Pau had already won twice before. ‘Big Marc’ confessed that it had been one of the most difficult things to achieve in his life … and the celebration lived up to the circumstances.
The Spanish was one of the most enjoyed in the for the of the champions on the streets of Toronto and their image lowering a bottle of wine from a drink will go to the (other) history of the NBA.

An eyebrow for the king

He was one of the soap operas of the year in the NBA. Anthony Davis I wanted to leave the New Orleans Pelicans at all costs and Los Angeles Lakers (Y Lebron James) wanted him to weigh what he weighed. The issue was extended, brought controversy, provoked anger and compliments in equal parts, generated negotiations and gave rise to rumors, dimes and diretes … until “The Eyebrow” finally set course for California. On June 16, from the mouth (of Twitter) of the always infallible Adrian Wojnarowski, the transfer between Lakers and Pelicans was announced.
Those in purple and gold sacrificed part of their future as a franchise (Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and first three rounds of the draft) to focus on the present and content a LeBron James who wanted Davis by his side to fight for the ring. The result, according to the first months of regular season 2019-20, is much more than positive and the Angels are serious contenders for the title. Something completely unthinkable without ‘The Eyebrow’.
