    A lot of players hurt this year but nice to see 2 small market teams make the finals. Props to them for staying healthy, deserve some credit for that

    The Suns were best when they played with both of their playmakers, faulting either is silly. It’s sooo much better to celebrate Giannis and just be like “wow that guy is awesome”

    I think the dumb shit Milwaukee has done offensively at times, and the way people talk shit about Bud because of it, kind of masks the fact that Milwaukee's defense is awesome.

    8. Atlanta Hawks
    2020-21 record: 41-31
    Result: Lost in East finals
    2022 title odds: +3000

    The Hawks shocked just about everyone outside of Atlanta with their run to the conference finals, and they might have made it even further had Trae Young not injured his ankle by stepping on an official's foot. Young's impressive performance in the playoffs (28.8 points, 9.5 assists) showed he could carry a team when it matters. But will his team look the same next season? John Collins' status as a restricted free agent could mean Young will be without one of his favorite targets. But with Young's play and Nate McMillan's interim tag being lifted, there's still plenty of optimism moving forward. -- Lopez

    9. LA Clippers
    2020-21 record: 47-25
    Result: Lost in West finals
    2022 title odds: +2000

    The Clippers redeemed themselves for their 2020 bubble meltdown with a resilient run to the Western Conference finals, but they enter the offseason with uncertainty surrounding their future and that of Kawhi Leonard. The franchise player had surgery to repair a partially torn ACL, and it remains to be seen how much of next season he could miss. Also, Leonard has a player option in his deal and can become a free agent in August. Back in December, Leonard said, "Obviously, if I'm healthy, the best decision is to decline the player option. But that doesn't mean I'm leaving or staying." Serge Ibaka also has a player option. Reggie Jackson's playoff surge might have increased his value on the free-agent market beyond what the Clippers can give him. Paul George will need help to keep the Clippers in contention until Leonard returns (if he doesn't opt out and sign elsewhere). The Clippers can still use additional front-court depth and a point guard/leader who can improve their IQ/offensive efficiency. -- Youngmisuk

    10. Dallas Mavericks
    2020-21 record: 42-30
    Result: Lost in Round 1
    2022 title odds: +3000

    The Mavericks already made some major changes, hiring the tandem of GM Nico Harrison and head coach Jason Kidd to replace the departed duo of Donnie Nelson and Rick Carlisle. The immediate challenge: upgrading the roster in Dallas' final offseason of salary-cap flexibility before the supermax extension Luka Doncic is expected to sign this summer kicks in. The Mavs recognize the need to add another playmaker to complement Doncic. Can they find a way to do that and re-sign Tim Hardaway Jr.? -- MacMahon

    Really happy and jealous for the Milwaukee fans. Absolutely badass for a small market team to snag one and for someone as awesome as Giannis to do it. Can’t wait for Orlando to be a competitor in 2035 again. Seriously, congrats Milwaukee

    My appreciation of Giannis far exceeds my disdain for Coach Bud and the way he left Atlanta. Love that a small market team won it all.

    NBA has done a great job during covid, the bubble and now this season have both been fantastic.
