Sports analyst Skip Bayless thinks that the NBA will have a new champion in 2021 as the Los Angeles Lakers will not defend their crown. The co-host of UNDISPUTED predicts the two finalists to be new compared with 2020.
According to him, the Brooklyn Nets will come out of the Eastern Conference. Bayless was impressed with Kevin Durant during the last preseason game against the Boston Celtics. KD finished the game with 25 points in 27 minutes.
As for the West, Bayless sees the Los Angeles Clippers living up to the expectations and making the leap to the Finals. He also thinks the Clippers will beat the Nets in six games to claim a championship.
