    Shortened season, varying levels of fan support at games, COVID issues, and a crazy amount of injuries due to being rushed back. The 3 best teams (Nets, Lakers, Clippers) all kneecapped by injuries. Dark horse contenders like Denver lose a top tier player. Sixers stars hampered by inuries (Embiid meniscus, Simmons brain).

    2021 might supplant 1999 as the biggest asterisk le ever tbh

    Also no, Davis canít stay healthy in a full season anyway. Harden stopped taking care of his body. Kyrieís injury can happen on any play. Kawhiís knees are walking timebombs. Sixers stars hampered by Simmons and Doc Rivers

    Yeah but everyone was on an even playing field in the bubble. Everyone had ample time to prepare for the bubble, this year they all thought the season was delayed until February, only to be rushed back in December. And in the bubble it wasn’t one team with empty arenas vs a team that’s packed out.

    Biggest asterisk years tbh are

    1. 2021
    2. 1999
    3. 1994 (Jordan playing baseball)
    4. 2020
    5. 2012

    Lol guys were kicked out for going out or having people come in. Guys were either out with COVID or were playing with the effects of it. No it wasn’t level. That’s why Tyler Herro no longer looks like a superstar

    That was one scrub on the Rockets thinking your team had a shot last year regardless

    Thatís my point. I didnít say they had a shot. In a regular post season, would that get you suspended? Though Lou Williams got suspended for going to the strip club

    I don't think asterisk les are a thing. And I'll bet Barkley, Malone and Ewing would all love one of them lol.

    But as far as weaker les go - nobody tops 2020. No fans and i don't even think the players, themselves, were that interested.

    nah honestly ive always said houston would have beaten them, they were definitely a matchup issue. mike consistently got favorable finals matchups, which is a big reason for being undefeated in the finals. the teams in the east that had dominant bigs mostly had crappy supporting casts, houston was one of the few in the league that had a complete team surrounding the big

    Lakers played 71 games in 2020
    Spurs played 50 games in 1999
    Both rang under weird cir stances.
    1999, self inflicted
    2020, Trump inflicted

    Which team deserves the biggest asterisk son? Don't lie.

    Last year was a huge asterisk which carried over to this season making it an asterisk season also imo. Hopefully things get back to normal next season

    2020 and 2021 were both Trump inflicted. He allowed the Rona to wreck our country. He knew and "purposely downplayed it" and now 600K American souls are lost.

    In 1999, it was a self inflicted CBA argument amongst powerful Caucazoids.

    Either way, there were 71 games played last year and only 50 in 1999.

    Doing the maths:

    71 ų 82 = 86.5%
    50 ų 82 = 60.9%

    By the maths, Spurs 1999 le deserves the biggest, fattest *PERIOD

    Fans don't block shots
    Fans don't rebound
    Etc etc.

    Besides, everyone had a shot at the Mickey Mouse rang in 2020. Only one did.

    But fans clearly do have an affect on the players performance tbh. It's not surprising at all that the Heat got swept when the real lights were on they never should have been in the Finals to begin with, Lakers should be ashamed for not sweeping them last year

    95 Houston with Drexler would have for sure, don't really think 94 though with Vernon Maxwell the second option would have been enough.
