The jury is still out on whether or not the Bucks have what it takes to win it all this season, but they have already convinced at least one NBA legend that they're the team to beat.
On TNT's "Inside the NBA," Charles Barkley made his declaration live on TV:
"They go through these valleys where they are fantastic and the rest of the time they get the ball to Giannis at the top of the key and it's frustrating to watch.
But I'm going to tell you right now: the Milwaukee Bucks going to win the world championship. We might as well deal with that. That's my personal opinion. I think they beat Philly or Atlanta and whoever come out the West."
The Bucks certainly deserve a lot of credit for what they did tonight. By beating the best team in the league, The Bucks have earned the right to call themselves the favorites to win it all.
And while beating Philadelphia or Atlanta will not beat an easy feat, their hardest challenge is complete.
If they can get through the Conference Finals, it might just result in the making of history.
Still, you can't count any team out just yet, and it will be interesting to see who is left standing when it's all said and done.
