The NBA Finals are quickly approaching and it seems that everyone has a prediction about which teams will make it.
NBA icon Charles Barkley is very loud and proud about who he believes will go all the way.
Speaking on TNT on Friday night, Barkley not only predicted that the Denver Nuggets will reach the Finals, but he guaranteed they’d win it all.

Like most commentators, Barkley isn’t always correct with his basketball estimates but he’s not the only one thinking the Nuggets have what it takes to win.
They are currently in the midst of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.
They are headed into Saturday night’s Game 3 with a 2-0 advantage over LeBron James and his team.
All season long, the Nuggets have been performing like the team people always wanted them to be.
Nikola Jokic has been playing like the two-time MVP he is and Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr, Aaron Gordon, and the rest of the squad have been playing at a high level too.
There were some people who wondered if the Nuggets had what it took to go far in the playoffs.
Like the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers from the last few years, some wondered if they’d just be a good regular-season team but would fall apart in the postseason.
That clearly isn’t the case.
Now few people would be shocked if they reach the Finals and win the whole thing.
Barkley is certain that they will.
Nuggets fans are hoping he is right.NEXT: Nikola Jokic Has Already Reached An Important Milestone
