As the Los Angeles Lakers get ready to face the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, let’s predict who will win it all.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been able to make it to the NBA Finals just one year after missing the playoffs. It has not been an easy journey for the Lakers, as despite having the expectations of making it all the way, the Lakers have had to deal with the emotional loss of Kobe Bryant, a global pandemic pausing the season, and then the season resuming months later in Orlando.

While this season has certainly been a challenging one, it can be argued that this will be one of the hardest championships in the history of the NBA.

For the Lakers, they were able to avoid the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference, and also will be avoiding the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals. It is pretty shocking that the Lakers didn’t have to face either team, as there were some good upsets in the playoffs this year.

One of the biggest upsets was the Miami Heat knocking off the Milwaukee Bucks. After beat the Bucks, the Heat didn’t suffer a letdown as they handled the Boston Celtics.

Even though the Heat weren’t expected to be here, that doesn’t mean that they can’t compete with the Lakers. The Heat are led by Jimmy Butler and a lot of really solid players that make up a very deep and talented team.

While the Heat have a good team with a lot of talent, they don’t have the superstars like the Lakers. Anthony Davis and LeBron James are playing like two of the best in the world and that usually translates into winning a championship. This will by no means be a cakewalk for the Lakers, but they should win the title.
