FIRE RANT: Nightmare NBA Finals Matchup?

I must admit that I’m relieved to see two unique teams compete in the NBA Finals for the 2020-2021 Championship.  However, a lot of folks have be groaning the whole playoffs as front running teams that have more universal appeal like the Lakers, Knicks, Heat, etc. have been getting eliminated.  I’m losing zero sleep over Lebron and Lakers not being in NBA Finals.  I believe that even without Anthony Davis the Lakers still had better roster than the Phoenix Suns and made excuses for not defeating them with an injured Chris Paul.  I’m also delighted to see that the New Jersey Nets weren’t able to buy a championship with their 3 headed monster of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden.  The Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks are both really good teams and earned the opportunity.  There shouldn’t be an asterisk next to the championship.  Just like people didn’t feel compelled to put an asterisk next to the Lakers’ bubble championship last season.  If Suns win, I believe it would be the first championship for the team and for “Point God”, Chris Paul.  If Bucks win if would be a great story as well of smaller market superstar like Giannis Antetokounmpo staying with the team he was drafted by and leading them to championship without leaving elsewhere to create a super team.  That’s something folks like Lebron James and Kevin Durant can’t claim.  So again, zero problem with Suns vs Bucks for NBA championship this year and I will be viewing.
