With training camp for the 2021-22 NBA season right around the corner, season predictions and player rankings are starting to flood social media.
Sports Illustrated’s Chris Herring explains LaVine’s ranking:
“The 26-year-old All-Star, coming off a season in which he set new career-highs in virtually every statistical category, now enters a campaign he’ll be flanked by more veteran talent than he’s ever had. His counting statistics are likely to come down some. But his efficiency—already fantastic a year ago—should soar to new heights with opposing defenses stretched thinner because Chicago’s bolstered talent. “
Last season with the Bulls, LaVine averaged a career-high 27.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.
