For the 2021 NBA Season, the hopes were on Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Lakers. That is, Trae Young vs LeBron James. In the end, it is the Milwaukee Bucks vs the Phoenix Suns, and, hopefully, Giannis Antetokounmpo vs Chris Paul.
Both the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns needed 6 games to win. In Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, Milwaukee Bucks eliminated The Atlanta Hawks, on Saturday, July 3, 2021 by 118-107. The Phoenix Suns, who also needed six games to close out the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference finals, on June 30, 2021 with 130-103.

The wins by the 2 teams will be memorable. Chris Paul and Giannis Antetokounmpo missed multiple games, due to injuries. However, with the Phoenix Suns' win, Chris Paul will appear in the NBA finals for the first time in the last 16 years. Giannis Antetokounmpo, 2 times MVP, has been battling injuries and has not played since he hyperextended his knee in Game 4 against Atlanta Hawks. Hence, in the projections, Phoenix Suns are favorites over Milwaukee Bucks. But the question remains whether Giannis Antetokounmpo will be in a better shape to play, effectively, in the NBA Finals.
The focus of the games would revolve around the following stars: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, Brook Lopez, and PJ Tucker.
