The NBA went through a crazy world wind of drama this summer in the free agency period with this changing the landscape of the NBA we the fans were craving some basketball action but were left hanging as the NBA season starts in a couple of months thank goodness for the FIBA world cup this presented some much needed drama filled basketball during the summer but is this just an international contest or could this tournament potentially impact the upcoming NBA season in this edition of Psycho-Pass Shoot Score I’ll be taking a dive into the FIBA world cup firstly we have the Boston Celtics their core of Kemba Walker Jaylen Brown Marcus Smart and Jason Tatum all played on the USA team and i think this will have a profound effect on their cohesion as a team in the NBA regular season and by having this time to gel, get to know each other, train and get in game experience this will form the basis of their cohesion as a team with there being many changes in the NBA this summer the time this core has on the USA team will give them a head start over multiple teams a lot of teams over the summer host unofficial camps and do things like have dinners to get to know each other this develops a certain type of team cohesion know as social cohesion but what team is able to get in game experience against other NBA and elite international competition no one and I think this will help the Boston Celtics have a successful NBA season Next we have the Greak Freak, Giannas Antetokounmpo. And what’s truly freaky about Giannas is that he’s coming of an MVP season and I believe he will be a better, more complete player this upcoming season. I know I know, it’s crazy! But if you look at his games in the FIBA world cup, you can actually see improvements. Although his states of 14 pts 8rb and 2ast don’t pop of the screen what does pop out is the developing maturity in his game. We knew that he was a beast in transition and good luck trying to stop him getting to the basket But what looks like is developing is his understanding of how to get to his spots for easy shots and the fluidity and confidence with his jump shot. Confidence is like a savings account, for long term gain keep it steady And if he’s able to establish a steady stream of confidence with his jump shot combining that with the extraordinary tools he already has every NBA team is in a world of trouble Lastly we have New York Knicks guard Frank Nilikita. This may not have a profound effect on the NBA overall but more on his individual career Although the first few years of his career in the NBA have been… ermm lack luster he has shown signs in the FIBA world cup of the player he could become Being a defensive pest, operating like a surgeon in the pick and roll and overall doing the little things needed to create winning basketball What has struck me as different with Frank is his mindset It looks like he’s starting to take the mental steps towards being a more aggressive player and this was an area a lot of people have criticised him on Becoming more aggressive starts mentally, with increasing the intensity in all your actions like locking up your opponent up on defence or trying to get to the basket on offense. It seems like he’s starting to make that mental switch, which would open a lot of doors for him offensively and be a massive addition to the good bones he already has as a young and upcoming player So there you have it, those are my three reasons why the FIBA world cup will have a massive impact on the NBA season. This summer has been one for the record books and with the FIBA world cup coming to a close now, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see some crazy highlights, rivalry games and everything the 2019/2020 NBA season has in store.
