This is subject to change because of offseason movement and whatnot, but according to the Vegas oddsmakers, the Thunder have the fourth-best chance at taking home the 2011-12 championship.
Oklahoma City is behind the Heat (5/2), the Lakers (11/2) and the Bulls (6/1) and the Thunder are installed with 8/1 odds.
Sounds about right to me. The Thunder were in the Western Conference Finals and with the age of the roster, they should only be better next year. They’re behind the Lakers though because well, it’s the Lakers and that’s just life.
This year’s champs, the Mavericks if you didn’t know, are right behind the Thunder at 10/1. And if you like playing longshots, the Raptors are last with 150/1 odds. Funny to think though how three years ago, the Thunder were right in that same territory too.
