Last year, the impossible happened. A deficit so hopeless, only the extraordinary could conquer it. But a gutty shot and a stunning chase-down block later, and the dream was realized. A championship with its roots in the unexpected has now led to an NBA season where out-of-nowhere triumph is expected.
What will happen this year?
There’s just no predicting this game.
The NBA season tips off flush with storylines: KD’s foray into the bright Bay Area spotlight, LeBron and Kyrie’s earned-against-the-odds banner, and a deep collection of unabashed young talent that rivals any group in the league’s long history. Each athlete has unique challenges to meet — old rivals & new teammates, on-court chemistry, off-court distractions, Injuries, trades, fines, rookie growing pains, and veterans with youth on their heels — every player, challenge and solution is unique, and often unexpected.
Nike Basketball’s “Come out of Nowhere” sparks these individual narratives for a powerful roster of athletes and brings voice to the game’s future
