Giannis Antetokounmpo: It’s hard to pinpoint exactly where a two-time MVP should look to refine his game but that hasn’t stopped Giannis Antetokounmpo from finding new ways to remain in the MVP conversation. Eager to reassert his Milwaukee Bucks squad atop the Eastern Conference, Antetokounmpo averaged a career-high 31.1 points per game, an achievement made only more impressive by how impressive the rest of that career has been.

Jrue Holiday: Happy to embrace a slightly larger offensive role in his third season with the Milwaukee Bucks, Jrue Holiday earned his second career All-Star nod 10 seasons after he earned his first. The 32-year-old’s 19.3 points per game were second highest of his career but ultimately it’s the veteran guard’s acumen on both ends of the floor that the team will need to leverage with their eyes set on a second ring in three seasons.

Milwaukee Bucks: Eager to shake off an exit in last season’s Eastern Conference Finals after winning it all in 2021, the Milwaukee Bucks return to the postseason as the No. 1 seed in the East, fresh off their winningest campaign since the 2018-19 season. Featuring much of the same core that led them to the promised land, a potential return is well within reach.


Jayson Tatum: Now firmly entrenched in any MVP conversation, four-time All-Star Jayson Tatum has one thing left on his bucket list: a Boston Celtics title. Fresh off an Eastern Conference championship, Tatum knows full well what it takes to get to the promised land. Buoyed by career highs of 30.1 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, the next chapter of Tatum’s legacy is just waiting to be written.

Jaylen Brown: Named an All-Star for the second time in his seven-year career, Jaylen Brown managed yet again to refine his already celebrated game. Fresh off an appearance in last year’s Finals, Brown racked up a career-high 26.6 points per contest for the Boston Celtics, shooting .491 from the field.

Boston Celtics: Empowered by a run to the 2022 Finals, the Boston Celtics have looked as good as they’ve looked in over a decade this season. With the young core that served them so well during last year’s playoff run back and better than ever, the future is bright for the organization in hot pursuit of its 18th championship banner.


Joel Embiid: Front and center in the MVP conversation all year long, there’s no denying that Joel Embiid is a giant of the game. In 2022-23, Embiid took his performance to new heights following up last season’s scoring title with a 33.1 point-per-game career high. Having guided his squad to their greatest regular season in two decades, all eyes are on how this top-tier squad shows out in the postseason.

James Harden: With his first complete season as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers now in the books, it’s easy to dream big about what the team is capable of. Harden’s 14th season in the league saw him lead the league in assists for the second time in his illustrious career. What’s next for a man who has dominated the stat sheet in practically incomprehensible ways? Think hardware.

Philadelphia 76ers: A legitimate contender for the past half-decade, the Philadelphia 76ers raised the bar in 2022-23, winning the most games that the franchise has seen since the 2000-01 campaign. With a stacked core fresh off its first full season together, the sky’s the limit for the Eastern Conference juggernaut with title aspirations.


Donovan Mitchell: It’ll take more than a cross-conference trade to an upstart franchise on the other side of the country to slow Donovan Mitchell down. Picking up where he left off in Utah, Mitchell earned his fourth-straight All-Star appearance this season, posting a career-high 28.3 points per game on a Cleveland Cavaliers squad that earned its first playoff berth in five seasons.

Darius Garland: In four seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Darius Garland has seen his squad put in the work to climb higher and higher in the win column. Now in the driver’s seat as the franchise makes its first playoff appearance in five seasons, Garland’s ability to shine in a suddenly stacked lineup will be on full display for the world to see.

Cleveland Cavaliers: The Cleveland Cavaliers have had their work cut out for them building a winner out of the remains of their last contender and after five seasons, that work has paid off. After years of unquestionable progress drafting and developing its core, the franchise pushed its chips into the middle in a blockbuster offseason trade that raised the team’s ceiling to new heights. 


Jalen Brunson: It was evident early into his latest career chapter that Jalen Brunson was taking his game to a new level. After signing with the New York Knicks over the offseason, the fifth-year guard racked up career-high averages of 24.0 points and 6.2 assists per game. Now, exactly one year removed from his breakout run in the 2022 postseason, all eyes will be on what the 26-year-old comes up with next. 

Julius Randle: As Julius Randle goes, so too do the New York Knicks. Fresh off his second All-Star campaign in three seasons, a year in which he racked up a career-high 25.1 points per game thanks in no small part to renewed confidence from long range, the 28-year-old forward and his squad are back in the postseason ready to make noise. 

New York Knicks: Fresh off their winningest season in a decade, the New York Knicks are back in the postseason for the second time in three years. With a returning young roster that’s done nothing but develop since their last taste of the playoffs and an instant impact free agent signing felt around the league, the team is ready to change their fate.


Mikal Bridges: After showing immense two-way progress year-in and year-out through three and a half seasons in Phoenix, Mikal Bridges took his game to an entirely new level after a mid-season trade sent him to the Brooklyn Nets. In 27 games with his new squad, Bridges racked up 26.1 points per game, helping ease the franchise’s transition to a new era.

Nic Claxton: No longer just an upside big on a veteran team, Nic Claxton has established himself as a key building block of the Brooklyn Nets. In 76 starts, the 23-year-old averaged career highs across the board, flirting with a double-double at 12.6 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. On the defensive end, the athletic five swatted 2.5 shots per game, tied for second in the league.

Brooklyn Nets: The Brooklyn Nets team that finished the regular season looked a lot different than the one that started it but the future is bright for the organization in transition. A pair of blockbuster deals in the lead-up to the trade deadline left the franchise with a fascinating core of defensively gifted wings and the 2022 postseason will mark their first opportunity to come together under the bright lights of the playoffs.


Dejounte Murray: Playing at a new position in a new city, Dejounte Murray wasted little time getting into sync in the Atlanta Hawks backcourt. The freshly-minted two guard racked up a career-high 1.8 triples per game in 2022-23 and will showcase his stifling defensive presence in the postseason for the first time in five seasons.

Trae Young: With reinforcements in his own backcourt this season, Trae Young took his playmaking game to new heights, racking up a career-high 10.2 assists per game. Of course, the two-time All-Star is no stranger to putting the ball in the cup and will be asked to do so a lot as his Atlanta Hawks return to the postseason for the third consecutive year.

Atlanta Hawks: With significant personnel changes on the roster and coaching staff, it was a season of change for the Atlanta Hawks. However, the one thing that hasn’t changed is that the franchise is once again in the postseason ready to do damage. The 41-41 squad battled through the play-in tournament to secure the No. 7 seed in the East.


One of these two teams will advance to the NBA Playoffs. Who will win on Friday night? Based on the outcome, these are the Redemptions you can expect to find in Packs on April 17.


Nikola Jokic: Smack dab in the middle of the MVP conversation for a third-straight year, Nikola Jokic’s impact on the Denver Nuggets is impossible to miss. After flirting with a triple-double average throughout the 2022-23 campaign, however, all eyes will shift to the big man’s ability to deliver in the postseason. Jokic’s 29 triple-doubles and 9.8 assists per game were career highs but success at this level is measured in rings.

Jamal Murray: Returning to the court after 18 months on the sidelines, Jamal Murray didn’t skip a beat as a key player on the contending Denver Nuggets. The 26-year-old flourished in his bounce-back campaign, racking up a career-high in assists with 6.2 dimes per contest, and will now set his sights on a personal return to the postseason for the first time since his high-scoring run in the 2020 playoffs.

Denver Nuggets: The Denver Nuggets have become a mainstay in the Western Conference playoff picture over the past half-decade but now more than ever the world is watching to see if they can take things to the next level. Winners of their division for a third time in five seasons thanks to a 53-29 season, the Nuggets stroll into the postseason as the first seed for the first time in that span.


Ja Morant: Named to his second-consecutive All-Star Game thanks in no small part to another prolific scoring campaign and career-high 8.1 assists per game, Ja Morant will once again be tasked with captaining a young squad through the postseason. The 23-year-old is a full-fledged star and with that elevated status comes lofty expectations for the No. 2 seed in the West.

Jaren Jackson Jr.: Jaren Jackson Jr.’s impact on the defensive end is impossible to miss, which makes it easy to see why he was named to the All-Star Game for the first time in his young career. The 23-year-old averaged a career-high 18.6 points per game on .506 shooting while leading the NBA with 3.0 blocks per contest.

Memphis Grizzlies: For a third consecutive year the young Memphis Grizzlies are destined for the postseason. As each season passes and the team’s promising core develops, expectations for the 51-31 club rise. Slotted in as the second-seed in the West for the second time in a row, the organization will look to build on last season’s run to the conference semifinals.


De’Aaron Fox: Named an All-Star for the first time in his career, De’Aaron Fox saved his greatest triumph for the end of the regular season: clinching a playoff berth. A foundational piece of the organization since he was drafted in 2017, Fox averaged 25.0 points per game on an efficient .512 from the field.

Domantas Sabonis: Domantas Sabonis’ impact on the Sacramento Kings was measurable the minute he set foot on the floor last season. In his first full year with the club, the three-time All-Star played a critical role in leading the organization back to the postseason. In addition to his 19.1 points and league-leading 12.3 rebounds per game, Sabonis averaged a career-high 7.3 assists at the five.

Sacramento Kings: Light. The. Beam. After a 16-year playoff drought, the Sacramento Kings are officially back in the postseason. Powered by a core that the organization has developed gradually over the course of a half-decade, the 48-34 franchise blitzed up the league standings to clinch the third seed in the Western Conference.


Kevin Durant: It’s not easy crossing conferences and joining a new title contender in the middle of the season but Kevin Durant has made a legendary career out of making the impossible look possible. In just eight contests following his trade to the Phoenix Suns, the 13-time All-Star has flashed the talent that puts this franchise’s upside through the roof.

Devin Booker: A certified bucket-getter for the past half-decade, Devin Booker is always going to rack up points. This year the three-time All-Star set a new high-water mark with a career-high 27.8 points per game on the highest field-goal percentage of his career. More important than any milestones in the points department, however, is postseason success. For a player that’s already tasted the Finals, that means one thing: a ring.

Phoenix Suns: Hungry to get back to the NBA Finals after a conference title in 2021, the Phoenix Suns went all in at the trade deadline eager to get back. If the new personnel can gel enough for a deep postseason run, the 45-37 fourth-seeded squad’s lineup boasts legitimate championship potential.


Kawhi Leonard: Back in action after a year on the sidelines, Kawhi Leonard is the engine that powers the LA Clippers. Though cautious in his recovery throughout the 2022-23 campaign, Leonard has gained strength over the course of the season and approaches the playoffs as one of the game’s most impactful two-way players. 

Russell Westbrook: A rollercoaster 2022-23 campaign landed Russell Westbrook on the LA Clippers and the midseason acquisition has been thrust into the spotlight on a short-handed roster. The veteran guard averaged 15.8 points and 7.6 assists per game in 21 starts with his new squad and will return to the postseason for the fourth time in five seasons.

LA Clippers: While the 2022-23 campaign saw injury and personnel changes, the LA Clippers continue to boast a deep veteran lineup capable of making noise in the postseason. Locked in as the fifth-seed this time around after a 44-38 season, the underdog squad is not to be underestimated.


Steph Curry: With a pair of MVPs and four titles under his belt, it’s hard to know what’s next for Steph Curry. Turns out more of the same. Racking up 29.4 points per game on his best shooting numbers in a half-decade, Curry’s 2022-23 campaign signaled just how much gas is left in the 35-year-old’s tank as the Golden State Warriors set out to repeat as champions.

Klay Thompson: Playing in his first full season since the 2018-19 campaign, Klay Thompson wasted no time coming out of the gates strong in the Golden State Warriors’ title defense. The five-time All-Star returned to form in 2022-23, averaging 21.9 points per game while burying a career-high 4.4 treys per game on .412 shooting.

Golden State Warriors: The Golden State Warriors reclaimed their spot atop the NBA pecking order with their fourth title in eight seasons last season and are eager to prove that the dynasty is officially back on. Though they’ll approach the 2023 postseason as sixth-seeded underdogs after a 44-38 campaign, nothing’s off the table when a team trots out a lineup that knows what it takes to go all the way.


LeBron James: In an unforgettable 20th campaign in which he set the NBA’s all-time scoring record, nothing looms larger for LeBron James than his quest to get back to the Finals. The 19-time All-Star averaged a staggering 28.9 points per game in typically dominant fashion and looks to lock in on a fifth overall championship and second with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Anthony Davis: As dominant as he’s looked since his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony Davis and company would welcome a repeat of that championship-winning 2019-20 campaign. In 2022-23, Davis took aspects of his game to new heights, pulling down a career-high 12.5 rebounds per game to go along with his highest scoring output in four seasons.

Los Angeles Lakers: Returning to the playoffs after a one-year hiatus thanks to a play-in tournament victory, the Los Angeles Lakers are a particularly dangerous No. 7 seed anchored by two of the game’s most dominant figures. The 43-39 club has the firepower, championship experience and motivation to reassert themselves atop the league pecking order.
