    2021 NBA Title Asterisk?

    So, with the most injuries to NBA All-Star's ever in these 2021 NBA playoffs (per Malika Andrews)... There were a lot of questions last season since it was in a bubble if the 2020 NBA title was watered down.

    My question to you all, is with all these injuries in these playoffs most likely due to the condensed season, does that water down this year's title?

    Kawhi
    AD
    James Harden
    Donovan Mitchell
    Mike Conley
    Jaylen Brown
    Joel Embiid
    Kyrie Irving
    Chris Paul - potentially

    Discuss.

    injuries are part of sports and happen every single season.

    Not this this level though, right?

    Also did the bubble cause an asterisk ya think?

    no asterisks, injuries happen every year. Most all stars injured ever stat (if it's even true) is arbitrary

    I think it's the matter of just we're making sure to point them all out.

    Interesting how LBJ shuts up about it until his buddy CP3 gets knocked.

    My point is if the injuries do not cause an asterisk than neither should the bubble.

    Completely different situations to me.

    I just canít help be thinking if the Celtics were still in it they probably could be in the finals.

    No, generally speaking I don't add asterisks to titles. There is always context but being in a bubble isn't overly meaningful as everyone had the same situation to be dealing with, injuries may be depending on the discussion but it still doesn't negate the final winner either way as like an asterisk (how impressive the winner is partially depends on the competition though which injuries can change).

    **** asterisks. Literally. I hate that they even exist.

    To answer your question: no one should be putting an asterisk on any year. Whiny in nature and sets a bad precedent.
