Winning an NBA championship is no easy feat. The league was founded in 1946 and now features 30 teams, yet over a third of the franchises have never won a title. This year the Suns look to add themselves to the record book as they attempt to win their first NBA championship as they take on the Bucks who only have one NBA championship.

While the way the game is played is always adapting, there is one constant trait every NBA championship team has: The ability to battle adversity. Teams need to regularly navigate injuries, inconsistent play and locker-room tension, but this season the difficulties were magnified.
