Far Fetched Friday: Milwaukee Bucks Win NBA Championship
Welcome to Far Fetched Friday where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we think will come to fruition. This Friday, our prediction is that Milwaukee Bucks will upset the two-time defending champs, Golden State Warriors.

The underlying truth about the Milwaukee Bucks is that while they've been the most dominant regular season team, they have a roster with little playoff experience and a coach who got swept in 2015 after putting together a 60 win season and the one seed.
However, the difference maker is the growth Giannis Antetokounmpo has made from preseason comparisons with Anthony Davis to MVP front runner. With Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have a chance. The two teams have split their last 4 games which means a finals matchup between the two teams could go down to 7 games which is huge because the Bucks have home court advantage.
Don't be surprised if the Bucks did the impossible.
