A look at who will win the next NBA title. Clue: Nets or Lakers

Giannis Antetokounmpo celebrated all night long, then the next morning he ordered a mini “50 pieces” chicken from Chik-Fil-A to commemorate his 50-point championship performance in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

But with Thursday’s parade through downtown Milwaukee, Antetokounmpo and the Bucks understand the party has to end at some point.

“It’s going to be a quick turnaround,” Antetokounmpo said Tuesday night. “You know, we’re going to be back and a lot of people are going to sue us, and we have to be ready for that. We have to be ready. “

Confetti had continued to fall from the rafters of the Fiserv Forum on Tuesday when sports betting began emailing their punters’ favorites to win the 2012-22 NBA Championship.

And the Bucks aren’t even the favorites or even the second-best favorite to win the title, according to punters.

The Brooklyn Nets have the best odds at 13/4, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers at 5/1 then the Bucks at 7/1 just ahead of Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns who is at 9/2.

Let’s take a look too soon – before the draft, before free will – at the top contenders for next season.

COVID-19 injuries and health and safety protocols throughout the season, but especially in the playoffs, have had the best of the Nets. They were without Kyrie Irving and James Harden for part of the playoffs and didn’t have Irving for the Bucks Series ending.
