Welcome to the second year of the NBA Playoffs Podcaster Bracket Challenge! We’ve partnered up with a few other NBA podcasts to share series predictions throughout the 2021 NBA Playoffs. Let’s see who knows the most about the sport they podcast about! The returning Champions George and Sami Jarjour from Pod That: Two Brother’s Talkin’ Sports Podcast return to defend their title!
This year’s tournament will feature the Shoot or Pass Podcast, The Close Up Magic, The Dime with Josh Rodriguez, and new contestant Ben Berry from Sixers Talk!
Each podcast has collectively chosen series winners and series lengths for each round up until the Finals, where they have predicted their 2021 NBA Champions. Some of the points are also earned for picking the CORRECT Play-in Tournament winners as well.
Follow along as each podcast team makes their picks, brings you some crossover content (and tons of trash talk) on upcoming episodes of the podcasts below!
*Each podcast with multiple hosts has agreed to collectively submit their picks as a team
