TrashTalk imagines other surprises for 2023
It’s official: with a win against the Lakers tonight, the Kings have made it onto the Western Conference podium. Who could have predicted such success by Sacramento a few months ago? This surprise is the first of 2023, which we expect many more to follow. In the meantime, the TrashTalk editorial staff offers you its predictions for the rest of the year, and spoiler: it’s more or less crap.
Imagine, you’re a Kings fan who goes to the other side of the world for six months, in a place where any attempt to connect to the telecommunications network is futile. This Thursday, January 19, you woke up for the first time in a long time in a city with Internet. Look at the NBA, and it’s almost too much for your little heart: the Kings are third in the Western Conference. Ahead of Phoenix, ahead of Golden State, ahead of the Lakers. You can’t believe it. A good game, and therefore a very nice surprise that Sacramento offered us by climbing so high. Now hopefully this will spark other ideas within the league…imagine, but not really, because TrashTalk has done it for you, and it’s instant.
Lauri Markkanen at the All-Star Game
Like what, wearing the blaz’ of idol girls in the 2000s is not an obstacle to success in the NBA. What is missing dear Lorie? Some would say a gaming environment where he is free to express all his talents without any pressure, but here we are more inclined to Utah landscapes that remind him of his native Finland. Impossible at the start of the season, this year’s all-star game will surely be a surprise.
Killian Hayes ends up NBA MVP
A fight in Paris as a catalyst for snail croissant baguette sauce. Returning to the United States as a star after putting 49 points in the nose of the Bulls, dedication to Maine-et-Loire and Cholet in passing. Galvanized, Kiki sends nights in 35/40 points by walking with one point in 63 pawns against
French cadets from Challans Rockets. The Pistons moved up to sixth place in the East, heading into the Playoffs. He will then be selected with the France team this summer and win the world championship in September. *beep beep beep* Ah, we just woke up.
The Nets won the NBA title
Kevin Durant was angry. He returned from injury before the All-Star Game, and warmed up for a month by destroying every team that dared to come out of the Barclays Center. Coming into the Playoffs, Jacque Vaughn’s men showed impressive efficiency against the Bulls, before crossing the Bucks. Not one or two, much less one size fits all, we didn’t take any chances. Kyrie Irving gala against the Celtics in the final of the conf ‘, and Nic Claxton in factor X to kill Jokic in the NBA Finals. Ah la la, if life was that simple…
LeBron James became the NBA’s all-time leading scorer
Oula, this is anything but a surprise, moreover it should happen soon.
The Kings continued their great season and qualified for the Playoffs
Yes, even with their current third-place finish, the Kings are still the Kings. A qualification to the Playoffs would be historic, one year after breaking the record for not making the postseason. You thought? It took some front-row vomit and a guy running in his pants during a game for Sacramento to finally start playing good basketball. Holiday decreed throughout the city, of course.
Kemba Walker signs with Cergy-Pontoise
Fed up with the NBA, rumors sent him to Milan but in the end it wasn’t because of the very good Spartans club of Cergy-Pontoise that Cardiac Kemba decided to join. A signature that suddenly makes the entire west side of the RER attractive to you. Even during strike times.
Rockets don’t end last in the West
So that would be a very nice surprise. After a season we’ll associate with the lexical field of dejections, the Rockets earn their last spot at the buzzer by the Spurs. Jalen Green and Jabari Smith Jr. played well, as if they wanted to prove Eric Gordon wrong who remained in custody on the Houston side. The Rocket season was definitely lame.
The Raptors blew up their entire squad this winter
After a lackluster start to the season, Nick Nurse’s Raptors chose to part with all of their key players, from Pascal Siakam to Fred VanVleet through Gary Trent Jr. We took the tank out of the hangar, we burned Victor Wembanyama here with an ice ax. , and it’s about to beat the snow shovel in Ontario.
Jonathan Rousselle joins the Lakers
In need of a leader, the Lakers decided to take Jo Rousselle and three pots of mustard on Dijon’s side. The first to ensure good management in the creation of the game, the three jars of mustard to season the chicken in the canteen, LeBron find it too sweet. This should not be a deciding factor in a potential desire of the King to look elsewhere.
Some surprises in the TrashTalk sauce, does that speak to you? Reasoned picks, others less so with the sole purpose of splitting the pear in front of this beautiful league that is the NBA. Ah yes, do you think Damian Lillard can send an album to your Blazers results?
