The 2021 NBA Finals Thread -- Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns
 
Here's the schedule



I think the Suns win in 5. They're on a roll and this is their year.

I don't know how anyone can even pick this series without knowing Giannis' status.

If the Suns win in 5, I may be dead because I am in Vegas that weekend. I don't think my body could handle what would happen. :lol:

It would suck to clinch in 5 since I wouldn't be home. I would love to celebrate here.

But as always, I don't count on anything. They play the games for a reason. Especially with Giannis' status up in the air.

Don't really care but may throw a bet here or there and not really watch. But 9p starts (which is probably more like 9:15)? Yawn. Maybe for a FRI/SAT game I'd stay up for it.

But I'll root for PHX. MIL has GB in the NFL so they've had their share of success. And PHX delivered on my lone NBA future bet (as Pacific Champ at a tidy profit).

I think even with Giannis playing and healthy the Suns are the better team but I still think it will go minimum 6 games. I picked Suns in 7. This will be a great finals and I would be happy with either winning.

If it does go 7 games then what's the estimated regular season start date for next season(or do they need LaBron James permission)?

The fact that you apparently think that the length of this series has any impact on the next season's start date shows how little you must know about the NBA.
The only thing it might affect is whether Devin Booker, Khris Middleton or Jrue Holiday play in the Olympics.

Yep. Should be a very interesting Olympic tournament.

Sucks that I can't bet on the Olympics in Virginia.

The Bucks are due and probably should have won at least one title the last two years.

I'm going with Suns in five. The late start times stink for us East Coast viewers, but it's totally understandable. A 5pm start time for West Coast viewers wouldn't be fair to them.

Iíll guess Suns in six

The Bucs won the Super Bowl so the Bucks might as well win the NBA Championship.

With Giannis, I think the Suns win. Without him, I think the Suns win, but easier.

Don't have a dog in this, but leaning Suns because of ex Rocket CP3

Re: The 2021 NBA Finals Thread -- Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns
 
With Giannis healthy I think it's closer, and to me it depends on which CP3 we get. If it's the one from the closeout game, then I think they win handily, but if that was an aberration they might be in some trouble.

I just hope it doesn't come down to health and that we get no more injuries marring this Finals.

Weird, I thought mcnabb made a prediction in this thread, but now I don’t see it,

CP3 and the Suns are rolling in the 3rd. Bucks look tired.

A non-competitive Game 1, decided halfway through the third quarter, between two teams with little national appeal from two mid-sized markets - - just what the executives at ABC were dreaming of.

Getting closer...

Been watching the fourth. The Bucks did make a little run to make it interesting. However Suns pulled away.

Giannis had a pretty good game for someone who was questionable to play tonight.

Re: The 2021 NBA Finals Thread -- Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns
 
I'll revise my prediction from Suns in 7 to Suns in 6. (I hope for something of an exciting series.)

But what I would pay for is if, when the Suns fans start the Giannis countdown at the foul line, that they would properly count actual seconds; "one-one-thousand, two-one-thousand ..."

This comment brought to you in the spirit of zyzzle.

Suns fans can count however they want if it makes him go 6-10 at the F/T line. :banana:
