You should look for environment dependent code in your components and ensure the props are the same client and server side: This generally means that you are using server rendering and the markup generated on the server was not what the client was expecting.

React injected new markup to compensate which works but you have lost many of the benefits of server rendering. Instead, figure out why the markup being generated is different on the client or server: We can't do this without using server rendering due to cross-browser quirks. Remove this prop from the element. For details, see https: How big of a year it will be will come down to how long it takes for him to adjust to the NBA game and whether or not his jumper will translate. In what will probably be one of the most overly analyzed, controversial rookie seasons in years, Lonzo Ball is ready to take the NBA by storm.

He may have started slow in Summer League, but by the end of the campaign he was taking home the hardware for both winning the league and being the MVP. Ball naturally makes other players around him better and has elite floor vision already at nineteen-years-old.

He makes his teammates want to work harder when they're on the floor with him because they know that he will reward their efforts by finding them with a pass at the perfect moment.

The most impressive part of his passing is that he makes it look so effortless as he lofts a full court pass right on the money. Creating for others may come easy to Ball, but he still has a lot to work on.

His jump shot was very inconsistent in the Summer League, and his awkward form isn't doing him any favors. He needs to become a threat from deep to be a successful playmaker in the NBA.

He did shoot Ball still needs to improve on the defensive end in addition to his shooting woes, but these two weaknesses can be improved over time with practice and weight training. The Lakers might not be contending for anything this season, but with a core of Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram they are headed in the right direction. After sitting out the entire season due to a foot injury, Ben Simmons is back healthy and ready to show the world why he was drawing comparisons to LeBron James and Magic Johnson out of college.

Simmons is a modern day "point-forward" who will run the offense like a point guard but defend power forwards on defense. He is listed at 6'10" but there were rumors that he had a growth spurt this offseason and could possibly be 6'11" now.

Simmons' skill-set paired with his height and athleticism is going to create matchup nightmares for opposing defenses. He, like Lonzo Ball, has elite court vision and a knack for finding the open man right on time to set up scoring opportunities for others. If that happens, Brooks will win the award. Ditto for Snyder if he gets the Jazz back into the playoffs after Hayward left as a free agent. Spoelstra, meanwhile, is perpetually underrated and should be in the mix if the Heat can push 50 wins this season.
