The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns are squaring off in the 2021 NBA Finals. The Bucks got good news with the return of superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, although they came up short as the Suns took Game 1. Prior to Game 2, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made his prediction for the Finals, and it will make Bucks fans happy, even more so after their star player returned.

Yes, Bucks in six according to Kareem, and hopefully that bodes well for Milwaukee as they are trailing in the series. The Suns have used the hot hands of both Chris Paul and Devin Booker to propel themselves to the NBA Finals and are the favorites, at least that’s what it seems like.
What is good news for the Bucks is that they head back to Milwaukee after Game 2, and perhaps the wild Bucks fans will tilt the scales in their favor if they happen to lose Game 2. Either way, a bold prediction by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the Bucks might use this as good luck and a good omen as they try and even up the series.
Can Giannis Antetokiunmpo, Khris Middleton, and the rest of the squad shake off the loss and even the series before heading back to Milwaukee?
