It's never too early to start making 2022 NBA championship predictions. After an exciting 2021 NBA Finals, with the Milwaukee Bucks taking down the upstart Phoenix Suns, and a wild offseason with many of the biggest stars in basketball switching teams, the NBA championship rankings are all over the place.

If you're making NBA playoff predictions for 2022, you have to consider 2017 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook heading to the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving all but opting out of the 2021-22 NBA season so far. In fact, most NBA Finals predictions for the 2021-2022 season run through Los Angeles and Brooklyn with the Lakers and Nets the betting favorites to win the title.

But the challengers remain strong, with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks, who are looking to repeat, and Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns getting the band back together for another run at the title that eluded them. That's not to mention Stephen Curry and Golden State Warriors, winners of three of the past seven titles, looking to prove their dynasty is not done with an influx of young, hungry talent.

So make your picks for the teams you think have the best shot of becoming the next NBA champions. Who will win the NBA Finals for the 2021-22 season? And which teams belong nowhere near the top of the list? Vote below, then head over and check out some more predictions for the 2022 season, with top MVP picks and Rookie of the Year contenders.
