The Milwaukee Bucks had their first title win in 50
years, all because of Giannis Antetokounmpo. With Antetokounmpo still
on the team, they hope to create the same victory in the 2021 - 2022
season too! The NBA betting lines
are not in their favor, and the Brooklyn Nets and LA Lakers are
preparing to take their crown back, but all is still to play for at the
Front Line Favorites
At the moment, the Brooklyn Nets are the favorites to win. With Kyrie
Irving, Kevin Durant, and James Harden on the team, they have the
stamina, skill, and team quality to take the championship home.
All three stars will be without a team next season, as they are all
free agents. This means they will be playing for Brooklyn and playing
for themselves to get more people to support them.
Los Angeles Lakers
In July, the Lakers made a deal that rocketed them up the rankings.
Russell Westbrook was added to their team with an average of 22 points
per game to add to the Laker’s stats. This has made LA a team filled
with stars, so taking down the competition shouldn’t be hard!
Golden State Warriors
Although Stephen Curry has left the team at the respectable age of 31,
the Golden state will not be without a star to pull them through.
Klay Thompson should be back in the game after
recovering from an Achilles injury. We can suspect that he won’t be
used as often as we’d all like, but his addition to the sport has
brought the whole team up the rankings.
James Wiseman is in his second year with Golden State, and his talent
grows with every game he plays. With two fine basketball players on
their team, the Warriors should bring us a good fight!
After such an amazing season last year, the Bucks cannot be ignored
this time around. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris
Middleton are the core of the team, and they will run rings around
their competitors if given the chance. This year, Donte DiVincenzo will
be back on the ball, too, as his foot injury has healed!
With Chris Paul back on the team, the Phoenix Suns are back in the
running for high-class basketball. Alongside the two Camerons (Johnson
and Payne), the team as a whole has a statistically higher advantage
than they have in seasons come and gone. This new lineup is still
untested, so you might see this team move up the rankings as the team
In their best record in history, Utah Jazz still couldn’t bag the win
when the time came, but this time around, they expect to do more. Their
motivation is palpable, as though they have a hidden trick up their
sleeve. With such energy and promise, we cannot wait to see how they do
and if they manage to change the rankings as they plan.
Last season Doc River’s entry gave all of Philadelphia the cheer and
promise of an NBA win, but as the semi-final was snatched from them,
River’s heartbreak was all we could see. Where once they had promise,
now they have uncertainty.
Word around the court is that the 76ers are hoping to get Ben Simmons
back. They need the legend to get them back to their rightful place,
but Simmons has stated, time and time again, that he would never wear
the Philadelphia uniform again.
Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard is the person who holds the Clipper’s future. His ACL
injury means that he could miss some or even all of the season, and if
that happens, then the Clippers will lose their only shot of winning
the NBA. The club owner, Steve Ballmer, has suggested that Leonard
could return for the season, but it doesn’t seem certain, and time is
Before the season started, Miami Heat had one of the lowest ratings for
the games, but as a couple of games have been played, they have already
begun to close in on their numbers. All these changes seem to come from
point guard Kyle Lowry. The bookies are seeing his unique game style
and need to change their tactics just in case.
One of the biggest surprises in the playoffs came from Trae Young. His
momentum, power, and gameplay seemed to come out of nowhere! We were
not the only ones to notice the change, as he now has a 5 year
multi-million deal with ATL. This might be the change they need to take
home the title!
