The 2021-22 NBA season will be the perfect opportunity for several players to revalidate their brilliant past season, and many scorers will be tasked with taking a quality leap to become much more offensive figures.

Here are the top 5 candidates to lead the league in points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo will lead the Bucks in their defense for the NBA championship

“The Greek Phenomenon” managed to reach the NBA championship last season as the leader of the offense for the Bucks, who will now seek to defend their throne. Last season he averaged 28.1 points per game.

Luka Doncic will have as his main goal to lead the Dallas Mavericks to fight in the postseason

Doncic is recognized as one of the most complete players in the league and, in what will be his fourth season, he aspires to lead the Mavericks back to the playoffs. He averaged 27.7 points per game last season.

Joel Embiid managed to establish himself as one of the candidates for the MVP of the 2021-22 regular season

Embiid will not only be the great offensive leader of the 76ers, but after a season in which an injury denied the MVP his chances, he wants revenge. His role could grow if Ben Simmons leaves. The previous season he averaged 28.5 points per contest.

Bradley Beal will seek to be once again the great offensive figure that the Washington Wizards have

Beal must once again assume the reins of the Wizards offense, since, after the departure of Russell Westbrook, he returns to his role as the fundamental axis of the team. In the 2020-21 season he averaged 31.3 points per game.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors and the league as the scoring champion after his best season in offensive terms.

Curry was the scoring champion of the previous NBA season, being the only reliable offensive star the Warriors had. This year he will have more support, but his situation is somewhat similar. He managed to average 32 points per game last season.
