It’s only been four months since the 2020-21 NBA season came to an end, but a new season starts tonight. The league will be back to its regular schedule after the 2019-2020 season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It led to last season starting in December and ending in July. Ahead of the 2021-22 season, NBA commissioner Adam Silver spoke to reporters about what they expect as the league celebrates its 75th anniversary.

“I think we won’t know until we can look back,” Silver said per NBA.com, “when this pandemic is truly over how we can grade ourselves relative to how other businesses have done. I’ll just say that I’m really thrilled that we’re back to something that looks closer to normal this year.”

One interesting issue is vaccinations and how each team deals with it when it comes to fans attending games. “Different regions of the country have adopted different practices, and so going into the season we’ll have some arenas that require everyone to be vaccinated and others where it’s illegal to even ask,” Silver said. “That’s what we’re dealing with in this country right now.” Here’s a look at seven teams who could win the NBA Finals next summer.

The defending champs show no signs of slowing down despite losing P.J. Tucker. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a two-time NBA MVP, would love to win another ring to add to his legacy. And he will have a strong supporting cast led by Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday.

After coming up short last season, the Nets are ready to bring a title to Brooklyn with the help of Kevin Durant and James Harden. What will be interesting is the fate of Kyrie Irving who may not play this season due to not being vaccinated.

The Lakers are looking to win their second title in three years. With the three-headed monster of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, it will be challenging for teams to slow down the Lakers in an 82-game season.

The Suns took the league by storm last season and there’s no reason they can’t do it again. Chris Paul is coming one of the best seasons of his career while Devin Booker is emerging as a Superstar. The Suns reached the finals last season and won the first two games before the Bucks won the next four.

With the duo of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert,… Brinkwire Summary Entertainment News.
