For the team that just won the championship last season, we cannot deny the fact that this team is still a contender. With the presence of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, this team has still something to offer. For the past eight years, this team won four championships. Additionally, the team managed to draft Done DiVicenzo which is a huge addition to their squad. Along with being favorited for the upcoming season’s title is the pressure of their many fans that they will play better than last season.

For a team as young as the Celtics then managed to climb to the finals, this young squad just proves that they are a threat to other teams. Many were actually surprised that the Celtics were able to reach the finals, but they made it happen. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, along with their teammates, worked so hard just to reach this stage. Moreover, what is more surprising is the fact that their head coach is new as well. Defense is the key for the Celtics that enables them to reach that far last season. For this season, expect that Tatum and Brown will still lead the Celtics to be a contender. Defense will be Celtics’ key to try getting that title for the next season.

Milwaukee Bucks

Milwaukee was crowned as champions during the 2020-21 NBA season, but last year, they were not able to far as the Celtics defeated them. They had too many inconsistencies which led them to a bad season. They could have go far last season if Khris Middleton is not injured. Giannis alone cannot do all the works for his team. Now that the season will start anew, a healthy Bucks could pull-off a surprise this season.

Phoenix Suns

Phoenix Suns did not go that far last season. In fact they were struggling in the semi-finals when they faced the Dallas Mavericks. To be fair, they had a good regular season where they won most of their games. However, what made them a contender for the title next season is the fact that they signed Deandre Ayton. With Ayton on their squad, this team will just get better and better with Ayton, Booker, and Paul in them.

If the Heat continue to be healthy, and the players gel well each other, then expect a Miami Heat on the finals. They lost to the Celtics during their conference finals. But what could go wrong if you have Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Tyler Hero, Kyle Lowry, and Victor Oladipo? An injury-free season could give them a chance to compete in the finals.
