National Basketball Association (NBA) 2021-22

The Milwaukee Bucks won their first championship in 50 years by defeating the Phoenix Suns with a 105-98 score in Game 6 of the NBA 2021 final series. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team to their second championship in history by dropping 50 points and winning the NBA final MVP. The Bucks finished third in the East Conference with a 0.639 winning percentage to qualify for the playoffs. They were losing after Game 2 but turned it around and won. Milwaukee still remains a major contender for the NBA 2022 championship.

The Brooklyn Nets fell short in the playoffs by losing 4-3 to the eventual winner, the Bucks. The Nets were leading after Game 2 but faced a series of injuries — to Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Brooklyn is well-equipped with stars like Kevin Durant, Irving and Harden. They finished second in the Eastern Conference with a 0.667 win percentage to qualify for the last NBA playoffs. The Nets are the main favourites to win the next season of the NBA.

The Los Angeles Lakers, 2019-20 NBA champions, had a very rough last season. Lebron James and Anthony Davis dealt with a series of injuries. Davis was injured in their Game 4 loss to the Phoenix Suns, and they eventually lost the series in Game 6. The Lakers finished seventh in the Western Conference with a 0.583 win percentage and had to go through the play-in tournament to qualify for the NBA 2021 playoffs. Los Angeles is one of the major championship contenders in the upcoming 2021-22 NBA season.

The Phoenix Suns' wait for the NBA championship continues after they lost their first NBA finals since 1993 to the Milwaukee Bucks. They started so well, winning their first and second games with 118-105 and 118-108, respectively, but fell short and lost the remaining four games. Phoenix made the playoffs by finishing second in the Western Conference with a 0.708 win percentage. They won the conference finals by defeating the Los Angeles Clippers in a six-game match. The Phoenix Suns are yet to win a championship, but are a top 10 contender for the 2021-22 NBA championship and will be relying on Chris Paul.

The Golden State Warriors failed to make the NBA playoffs last season for the second season in a row after losing in the play-in tournament. They finished their regular season eighth in the Western conference with a 0.542 win percentage, but eventually lost in the play-in tournament to Lakers and Grizzlies with 103-100 and 117-112, respectively. Steph Curry had a wonderful season and made it to the All-NBA Team but couldn’t guide his team to the playoffs. The Warriors remain in top 5 favourites to win the NBA title in 2022.
