Charles Barkley is rooting for the Phoenix Suns to win the NBA championship, however he thinks Milwaukee is the favorite if Giannis Antetokounmpo returns from injury.

Chuck specifically pointed out Antetokounmpo’s health as a key factor, highlighting that should he return –even not at 100 percent–the Bucks are going to be difficult to beat.

Antetokounmpo sustained a knee injury that kept him out from the last two games of the Eastern Conference Finals vs. the Atlanta Hawks.

The two-time MVP is still considered day-to-day, as the Bucks are heading to Phoenix to face the Suns. The Bucks could close out the series vs. Atlanta without Giannis, however Phoenix is a different beast, especially if Antetokounmpo is not available to play.
