Who will win the 2021 NBA Finals? Will the Los Angeles Lakers win back-to-back titles or will the stacked Brooklyn Nets team (now with James Harden) take home their first NBA championship? With the schedule being reduced to 72 games and the addition of a play-in tournament for the 8-seeds, the 2020-21 NBA season features new superteams, teams looking for redemption, and young stars rising to the occasion. 

According to Vegas odds, favorites to win the 2021 NBA championship include Lakers, Nets, LA Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Philadelphia 76ers. All of those teams but the Lakers made the second round of the playoffs. Make your NBA finals predictions by voting up the teams most likely to become the 2020-21 NBA champions. Playoffs are set to start May 22 with the 2021 NBA Finals starting sometime in July.
