The Milwaukee Bucks are favored to win the NBA title as the league nears returning during the coronavirus pandemic.

The NBA is closing in on returning with games in Orlando at Disney World. While the format isn’t entirely known just yet, the Bucks are favored to go home with the title. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

While I love the fact a team from Wisconsin is favored to win a title, I think taking the Bucks is foolish. We have no reason to believe they’re the best team in basketball.

As a betting man, you have to ride with LeBron James until you 100% find a reason not to. He’s had months to rest and get into perfect shape.

We have every reason in the world to believe LeBron will get back on the court and dominate just like he was before coronavirus halted the season.

It’d be absolutely foolish to take the Bucks over the Lakers. Obviously, nothing is guaranteed, but I like to make decisions based on the evidence and the history.

LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet, he has a strong cast around him and I find it difficult to believe he won’t do well in his return.
