BallnRoll’s Official Top-10 Moments of the 2021 Calendar Year
Another year is nearly in the books.
After a 2020 to forget, the bar was set quite low for 2021 and given the increased vaccine distributions, the easing lockdown restrictions, and the gradual return to normal, I’d like to think this year was definitely a step up and has us trending in the right direction for 2022.
With just a couple of days remaining in 2021, we don’t want to start the new year until we first look back at the year that was and highlight some of the greatest moments in basketball from 2021. So without further adieu, let’s check out BallnRoll’s official top-10 moments of the 2021 calendar year!
