Giannis Antetokounmpo helped the Milwaukee Bucks win a championship in 2021, their first since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was still on the team. The Bucks shook off their playoff demons and managed to show the world that they weren't just a regular-season team like many analysts thought.
Even though they are the reigning champions, there has not been a lot of talk about the Milwaukee Bucks repeating. A lot of the attention has been focused on the Los Angeles Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets, both of whom have stacked rosters with a lot of star power.
With that being said, there are definitely some people who are favoring the Milwaukee Bucks as the 2021-22 champions. Former Celtics player and analyst Brian Scalabrine has recently picked the Milwaukee Bucks to repeat, claiming that the team is "just going to get better".
