Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are the No. 1 seed in the NBA for the second consecutive season.
They’ll take on the Orlando Magic in the first round of the 2020 playoffs.
Meanwhile, out West, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers are in first place. They are still waiting to see who they’ll face in the first round. It’s going to be either the Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers or Phoenix Suns.
Most experts believe the Bucks and Lakers will meet in the 2020 Finals, although the Los Angeles Clippers–owners of the No. 2 seed in the West–could have something to say about that with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George leading the way.
The 2020 playoffs begin on Aug. 17. It’s still incredible Commissioner Adam Silver and Co. were able to make this bubble idea work at Walt Disney World. Not a lot of people thought the 2019-20 season was going to resume after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert contracted COVID-19 in March.
Silver and his group deserve a lot of credit. The Disney Bubble hasn’t had one single positive COVID-19 test since players started playing.
