We are entering the Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum era,

and Steph Curry and Jimmy Butler hope to postpone the inevitable

Many young stars are thriving in the NBA, but two of them elevated their status as the next face of the NBA with dominant Game 7 performances.

Luka Doncic annihilated last year’s finalists Phoenix Suns, while Jayson Tatum dethroned defending champions Milwaukee Bucks.

The NBA is in good hands based on the semifinals matchup. Jimmy Bulter and the Miami Heat will face Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics. Meanwhile,

in the West, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors will face Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. 

What a turnaround it has been for the Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics,

who started the season poorly but now find themselves with a chance to reach the Finals and win the championship.

If there’s any need to prove we are now entering the Jayson Tatum and Luka Doncic era,

fans can look at how these two young men dominated the two series and proved the naysayers wrong.

Tatum didn’t wilt under pressure against the Milwaukee Bucks and the current face of the league and 2x MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
