NBA playoffs 2021: How Bulls fans can watch second round originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The last time one of the remaining eight teams in the 2021 NBA playoffs won a championship was 1983. 

That was back when Julius Erving led the Philadelphia 76ers to a win over the Los Angles Lakers in the NBA Finals. So, yeah, it's been a while.

The Milwaukee Bucks haven't won the championship since 1971. The Atlanta Hawks are seeking their first title since 1958 when they were the St. Louis Hawks. The Brooklyn Nets last captured a championship in 1976 when they were the New York Nets of the ABA. The Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns, Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers never have won a championship.

One team's championship drought soon will come to an end.
