The will be no Lakers, Warriors, Spurs, Heat or Cavaliers this time around. The best thing about the 2021 NBA Finals is that whomever wins this series, everyone on that roster will be winning their first NBA Championship ring. After a decade of of seemingly non-stop super teams going for just another notch on their already illustrious belts, it’s incredibly refreshing to see franchises that have struggled historically representing in the NBA’s grandest stage.
The Milwaukee Bucks will be making their first appearance since 1974 and will be trying to win their first title since 1971 when Oscar Robertson was on the team and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was known as Lew Alcindor. The Suns have never won a title and they are making their first appearance in the Finals since 1993 when MVP that year Charles Barkley was at the height of his powers. Unfortunately for the Suns, Michael Jordan and the Bulls were at the height of theirs and won that Finals convincingly to complete their first three-peat. Phoenix also lost the 1976 NBA Finals 4-2 to the Boston Celtics who that year won their 13th title. A championship for either of these teams is long overdue.
