Can anyone explain to me why the Suns have the same odds as the Celtics, and worse odds than the Timberwolves, Pelicans, Knicks and Nets?

This should be done after the draft and free agency. This means nothing right now as everything can change

Yeah, who knows at this point?!

I think the Spurs will compete next year, but I see them falling short of the Finals.

I would not be surprised if Miami missed the finals next year, but I don't know at the moment what team would surpass them. Maybe the Pacers get their s--t together?

I would say it will either be OKC or LAC in the finals for the west next year. Depends on where Kevin Love/Carmelo goes. Might be the Bulls out east, but they need some firepower.

It will be an interesting season.

I think the Thunder have a legit shot at being the favorites. Last two years have been tough with Westbrook and Ibaka getting injured.

They can trade Perkins along with picks to get a legit player. KD, Russy, Ibaka, and Jackson are all getting better.

I'd definitely put the Spurs back up on top, but if the Thunder were going to push for a title, it would be now since KD is coming up on free agency soon (2016)

While I can't explain Minny, I'm guessing they believe Davis will improve to help the Pelicans even more.

I actually questioned why Miami was favored over the Spurs but someone mentioned a good point. They are in the east. So the road to the finals is more likely for them than the teams in the west.

It makes NO sense to put something like this out BEFORE the draft AND before free agency.

That said, if they insist on doing it, OKC and SAS should be at the top with LAC and GSW since those teams all have their rosters locked down in terms of contracts. The Heat might lose all of their best players in free agency.

Exactly, this is very stupid.

And putting miami at the top right after they got destroyed is pretty weak.

It's called being in the East. Half the battle is getting to the finals. The difference is that in the West it's like taking on George Foreman, Ali and Joe Frazier, in the East it's like taking on Buster Douglas....
