SB Nation Reacts: 2021-2022 NBA season predictions

Who’s gonna take home the hardware?

This week’s SB Nation Reacts NBA edition has a full rundown of what our national voters feel about MVP, Rookie of the Year, and the Conference Champions.

First, we asked our league-wide participants who they felt would be this year’s MVP. Here are those results:

I think Luka is a pretty good pick. He’s on my fantasy team this year, so that would be a wonderful development. I have to say that I’m pretty surprised that last year’s MVP, Nikola Jokic, doesn’t appear in the top three. I think he’s the most well-rounded offensive force in the game. KD too high for my tastes.

Next, we asked our league-wide voters about Rookie of the Year. A Rockets player was in the top three. But not the one I favor:

Cade Cunningham came out on top with Houston’s top draft choice Jalen Green not far behind. My vote in this poll was actually for Alperen Sengun, but he didn’t finish high enough to get named in the top three.

Finally, we asked all of our voters who they thought would win both the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference. Here are those results:

I went with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Denver Nuggets, though I’m not surprised our regular NBA fan picked the two most star-studded teams in the league. Doesn’t mean they’re going to get it done, though, just remember that.

That’s it for this week’s results. Make sure to sign up for Reacts if you want to take part.
