Shaquille O’Neal Picks The Dallas Mavericks To Win The 2024 NBA Championship
The Dallas Mavericks, led by Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, shouldered disappointment after missing the playoffs last season. Now, they are on a mission to bounce back and re-establish themselves as a formidable playoff team.
In their bid to bounce back, the Mavericks inked a long-term deal with Irving and enhanced their depth by adding the likes of Grant Williams, Derrick Jones Jr., Richaun Holmes, Seth Curry and Dante Exum. With more time for Doncic and Irving to gel, the team’s potential appears promising.
While many might sleep on the Mavericks as title contenders given the recent spotlight on teams like the Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers, some notable figures beg to differ.
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, for instance, is notably bullish on the Mavericks. On “NBA 2K,” when O’Neal was probed about his season predictions, the former NBA big man chose the Mavericks as his bet for the 2024 NBA championship.
