The Bucks are playing for their first championship in 50 years. The Phoenix Suns have never won an NBA title. So who would have predicted this NBA Finals match-up?

Jarrett Plahmer did. The UW-Madison student sent out this prediction all the way back in 2016: "2021 NBA finals Bucks vs Suns game 7 Bucks win 123-115."

"There was a tweet by some Cubs fan in 2016 who predicted that Game 7, Cubs will beat the Indians, and that was 5 years prior to that," Plahmer said. "15-year-old me was sitting there and I'm like 'what can I predict in five years?' This is what I came up with."


Plahmer said he picked the Bucks because they're his favorite team, and picked the Suns because they're his second-favorite team.

Let's hope the last part of his prediction comes true as well - a Bucks win in Game 7!
