The 2021 NBA season is one-third of the way through its 82-game scheduled season. As the All-Star game, and halfway point of the season approaches, we dive into the odds for the 2021 NBA Finals champion futures bet. The NBA is not a league filled with parity and this can be seen by taking a look at the NBA Finals matchups, and champions over the past 20 seasons. Lebron James has led his teams to the NBA finals in 9 of the last 10 seasons, with James' teams winning 4 of those championships. The Golden State Warriors have been in 5 of the last 6 NBA Finals led by Stephen Curry. The NBA has had 9 different teams win championships in the last 20 seasons, with three of those teams winning back-to-back championships, one three-peat. Only one of these championship-winning teams has not won multiple championships or had more than one NBA Finals appearance, that being the Toronto Raptors.
