Despite the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets off to great starts in the regular season thus far, the Golden State Warriors are still favorites in winning an NBA championship.
The regular season is such a marathon that things can change quickly in a month. LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were looked as the worst team due to their horrendous defense and inconsistent offense. But they turned it off and look more competitive than ever before. The New York Knicks were off to a good start, but are flowing at .500. The Oklahoma City Thunder are trying to be over .500 and still struggle in finding an identity. However, the season is still early and certain contenders from each conference will rise in January.
Looking at Golden State, they won’t be judged by the amount of wins against mediocre or elite teams. They will be judged by winning an NBA championship because of a stack roster. Kevin Durant combined with Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson is just too much for any team, including Cleveland, to handle. So don’t expect them to go hard throughout the regular season as they focus on health for the postseason. But what are the odds for Golden State and the other teams? Click here to find out.
