Default Odds of winning 2014 NBA championship

MGM Grand released its initial odds for winning the 2014 NBA championship:

Heat 3-1
OKC 5-1
Spurs 6-1
Bulls and Clips 8-1
Lakers 10-1
Pacers 15-1


Not sure whether they are presuming current roster or have included the odds of teams maintaining their current roster.

OKC-- probably never win if Westbrook is running point
Bulls-- young scrappy team, but missing a alternate offensive threat who scores on a consistant basis.
Spurs-- If Duncan retires, they will be in a rebuilding phase
Clippers-- fun team to watch, but not championship material

Grizz finished in the final 4 this time... I think they are being overlooked.

They must be factoring in potential trades as far as the Clippers go, because they have absolutely no business having the same odds as the Bulls as it stands now.

As it stands right now the teams with the best shot in my opinion are Miami, OKC, and Chicago. We'll have to see what happens with free agents and trades though.

I don't see how the Pacers have worse odds than the Bulls.

It's either going to be a Bulls vs OKC finals,or a Heat vs OKC finals (again).

Derrick Rose will be back next season. I can't wait to see him play with Jimmy Butler.

I'm a Pacers fan, and without Rose we're probably about equal to the Bulls. With Rose, the Bulls are significantly better than we are.

I only watched a little Pacers this year but with Danny Granger coming back, that may even it out. How is Rose anyway, does he even feel like playing next year?
