Of the seven teams still battling for an NBA championship, one could argue the Nets are the favorite to win it all this year. While Brooklyn can never seem to get all three of their stars healthy at the same time, they are the toughest team to defend remaining in the NBA Playoffs. Though Milwaukee has had its moments vs. the Nets, the winner of this series can win the championship.

If Durant’s Nets win their first NBA Finals in franchise history, this will be the third of his illustrious career. Of the seven teams remaining, only the Bucks, the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers have ever won an NBA title. Brooklyn will be the favorite in the Eastern Conference Finals, as well as whoever they would theoretically face in the NBA Finals. Durant has been unstoppable.
