Charles Barkley busts out his final guarantee of the 2020-21 NBA season and says the Bucks will win the title; Shaq gets showered with money.
The Milwaukee Bucks punched their ticket to their first NBA Finals since 1974 last night, in a Game 6 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Despite not having Giannis Antetokounmpo on the floor due to a hyperextended knee, the Bucks pulled away for win.
Charles Barkley seems to have become enamored by the Bucks this season as he’s made a bold prediction on what takes place in the NBA Finals.
Khris Middleton proved yet again that he can be a reliable no.1 on the offensive end of the floor as he dropped a monster 23 points in the 3rd quarter to put some distance between the Hawks and the Bucks. Charles Barkley has been riding with Middleton and company throughout these Playoffs and ne hasn’t switched his energy one bit.
Last night’s Game 6 coverage was the last NBAonTNT show of the season and to commemorate this, Chuck was asked to make one final guarantee.
Charles Barkley guarantees a Bucks Finals victory
For the first time in NBAonTNT history, Charles Barkley is on a 5 ‘GUARANTEE’ winning streak as he’s accurately predicted five straight games.
With him being a hot streak, he hit his co-hosts with an even hotter take by siding with the Milwaukee Bucks to win it all. This final guarantee of his led to money and confetti being dropped onto to Shaquille O’Neal.

Considering the fact that Chuck and Shaq constantly go back and forth, it makes sense that the latter was the only one showered with the confetti, despite the fact that Kenny put on his hard hat in anticipation of something happening.
Both teams are evenly matched, for the most part. It all comes down to how healthy Giannis Antetokounmpo is. If Giannis is even 80% of his MVP self, then fans are in for an incredible series.
