Barkley has been an advocate of the Bucks since the start of the 2020-21 NBA season. The former MVP has always believed in the talent of Giannis Antetokounmpo and was impressed with the way the Bucks had upgraded during the off-season.
The TNT analyst had the following to say post the Bucks’ Game 7 win over the Nets:
“I’m gonna tell you something right now. Milwaukee Bucks and I have said it last week when they were down 3-2, they are gonna win the world championship. That’s my personal opinion
Charles Barkley predicts an emphatic sweep for Giannis and the Bucks
Barkley, who was 1-for-11 in his last 12 guarantees at one point, made sure not to hit the button while making his recent declaration of the Conference Finals.
Chuck is 1-11 on his last 12 guarantees.

However, despite having such a poor record with his predictions. Barkley does not stop to amuse us with his proclamations. The veteran is one of the best entertainers in the history of sports broadcasting.
Barkley is, however, backed by an amazing production team that keeps raising the level of craziness and buffoonery on the show.
“Abort! Abort!” 😂🔥

Though Barkley’s predictions are considered to be jinxed by many analysts as well people on social media. However, when it comes to the Bucks, the Phoenix legend has been right more often than wrong.
During the second half of Game 2 against the Heat. Barkley has predicted that the Bucks would sweep the Heat, which the Bucks went on to.
It will be interesting to see if Barkley’s prediction of the Bucks winning the championship will come through. Game 1 of the eastern conference finals takes place on Wednesday this week.
