Cover picture for the articleIn my review of Pascal Siakam for the 2019-20 season last October, I wrote that “judging Pascal Siakam based solely on his play in the bubble would be unfair and unwise.”. Like many others, I expected Siakam’s bubble play to be a blip in an otherwise All-NBA season; a rough patch in an NBA career that had otherwise consistently trended upwards. Since Siakam’s rookie season, he has gotten better and better despite his advanced age, winning the NBA’s Most Improved Player Award in 2018-19 and All-NBA Second-Team in 2019-20, so it was reasonable to assume that his subpar play in the bubble was more related to his taking time away from basketball during a global pandemic than it was his inability to overcome defences who learned his habits and schemed for him as the No. 1 option.
