Lindy's Pro Basketball 2021-2022 is in Stores Now

The arrival of the new Lindy's Pro Basketball is a happy and welcome sight because that means the NBA season is about to start. The 2021-22 edition of Lindy's Pro Basketball has 30 team previews, plus nine feature stories: "Scopin' the NBA" by Mike Ashley (recapping the major off-season stories), "Where is the NBA Headed?" (Pete Croatto predicts how the league will change by 2046), "The Young and the Restless Luka" (Michael Bradley discusses Dallas' young superstar), "Welcome to the Arms Race" (DJ Siddiqi analyzes the Lakers' acquisition of Russell Westbrook), "Keeping the Faith" (Bill Sorrell provides his take on Kevin Durant's career ), "NBA Report Card" (editor Roland Lazenby grades each team's off-season moves), "A Look Ahead" (Jeremy Treatman scouts the 2022 NBA Draft), "NBA Fantasy 2021-22" (Ashley provides advice for fantasy basketball enthusiasts) and "A Look Back" (Lazenby describes "The Agony of Jerry West").

I wrote six team previews and sidebar articles this year: Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers, and San Antonio Spurs. My sidebar articles discuss, respectively, Jason Kidd, Stephen Curry, Zion Williamson, the Thunder's rebuilding process, C.J. McCollum, and the Spurs' search for a new identity in the post-Duncan era. Due to a production error, the Pelicans preview indicates that the franchise was founded in 1988 as the Charlotte Hornets, but of course the franchise was founded in 2002 as the New Orleans Hornets, as correctly noted in the previous edition of Lindy's Pro Basketball.

This is the 13th year that I have contributed to Lindy's, dating back to 2005 (with interruptions for the 2011 lockout, my attendance at law school in 2014-15, and then in 2020 because Lindy's Pro Basketball was not published in the wake of COVID-19). I am grateful to Roland Lazenby for providing the opportunity, and I am proud to be associated with the finished product.

If you do not see the magazine in any stores in your area, you can order a copy online.
