The landscape and style of play in the NBA are constantly changing and evolving; thus, teams in the league must keep up. This is why teams assemble the best possible roster every season to improve their chances in NBA championship odds and lift the coveted Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.
However, five franchises in the league still haven’t had the opportunity to gauge their chances in the NBA finals because they haven’t even reached the grandest stage. These six teams are the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, and New Orleans Pelicans.
As of May 23, 2023, the Denver Nuggets, previously included in the list, are through to their first NBA Finals for the first time in their history after sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. They are now awaiting their NBA Finals opponent between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics.
For the first time in franchise history, your Denver Nuggets are going to the Finals
