Lost in the shuffle of MLB pennant races, Ryder Cup golf, NFL ref meltdowns and NHL lockout news is that the NBA season is getting close. A month away! Training camps are opening this week and that means we are about to get some ball again.

A lot happened over the summer in player movement but not much happened in terms of who is going to be in the running for the NBA title. Yes, the Lakers certainly bulked up with Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, but will they be better than OKC? Can they dethrone King James? I guess we will see.

Anyways here are the futures odds on who will win the title. Who are you picking?

Of note, our Raptors are right down at the bottom. No problem, nothing like a big challenge right?

Miami Heat +200
Los Angeles Lakers +250

Oklahoma City Thunder +400

Chicago Bulls +1200
San Antonio Spurs +1600

Los Angeles Clippers +2000
Boston Celtics +2000

Brooklyn Nets +2500
New York Knicks +2500

Dallas Mavericks +3000
Indiana Pacers +3000
Memphis Grizzlies +3000

Philadelphia 76ers +4000

Denver Nuggets +6000
Houston Rockets +6000
Atlanta Hawks +6000

Utah Jazz +7500
Minnesota Timberwolves +7500

Portland Trailblazers +10000
Milwaukee Bucks +10000

Orlando Magic +15000
New Orleans Hornets +15000
Phoenix Suns +15000
Golden State Warriors +15000

Cleveland Cavaliers +20000
Detroit Pistons +20000
Washington Wizards +20000

Sacramento Kings +25000
Toronto Raptors +25000
Charlotte Bobcats +50000
