BA legend Magic Johnson is already looking ahead to the upcoming season, making a bold prediction about the Western Conference Finals.
Johnson took to X to share his thoughts, stating, “My bold pick for the West is the Lakers and Phoenix Suns will be playing in the Western Conference Finals, and the Lakers will win!”
The Lakers have been active in the offseason, retaining their core players while adding talent like Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince, Cam Reddish, Jaxson Hayes, and Christian Wood to their roster.
On the other hand, the Suns, who made a significant move by acquiring Kevin Durant during the trade deadline, continued to make waves by trading for Bradley Beal in the offseason.
Additionally, Phoenix recently made a noteworthy move, parting ways with Deandre Ayton and acquiring Jusuf Nurkic in a three-team trade involving Damian Lillard.
