2 Teams That I Want to Win the NBA championship This Year


Liam Rump, Journalist

The NBA playoffs will start this Saturday, May 22. The number of teams in the NBA playoffs is 16, but if you count the play-in tournament, there will be 20. The 2 teams that I want to win the 2021 NBA championship this year are the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns. The Denver Nuggets are an obvious choice. They are the hometown team and a fun basketball team to watch. The Denver Nuggets also deserve an NBA championship. They lost their all-star point guard Jamal Murray to a knee injury, and he probably won’t return this season. The Nuggets center Nikola Jokic has been amazing and has led the Nuggets, surprisingly, to the #3 seed in the playoffs. The Nuggets also haven’t made it and therefore haven’t won an NBA championship in their entire history. These reasons justify why I want and why the Denver Nuggets deserve an NBA championship. Now onto the Phoenix Suns. I really like the Suns. They have a young and exciting team and have great jerseys. This year, I believe the Suns should win the NBA championship because CP3 and the Suns deserve an NBA championship. CP3 has been great his whole career and ranks 47th on the NBA all-time scoring list. He has never won an NBA championship. The Suns have made two NBA Finals appearances but have lost them both. The Suns also haven’t made the playoffs since 2010. These reasons make it clear why I want and why the Phoenix Suns deserve to win the 2021 NBA championship. This year, I want the Phoenix Suns or the Denver Nuggets to win the NBA championship, but to be honest, these two teams deserve to win this year’s NBA championship.
