    1. massive:
      Carmelo Anthony with 8 points in the 1st.

      And he has the toughest defensive job on the court. He’s been incredible these Olympics, clear cut third best player after Durant and Lebron (and that’s not an insult to Anthony)

    2. weird there’s such a differences. The worst bet on there is definitely the Magic — 50:1 chance at a title? I’m not sure I’d take those odds if they were for ORL making the playoffs. Howard and Ryan Anderson were probably their two best players, and they got almost nothing in return that will help them next year.

      Best long shot on there is probably the Wolves. 100:1, right next to MIL, NOH, GSW and PHO? Come on. Even without Roy and Kirilenko they are better than those teams. If Love and Rubio improve and Roy and Kirilenko have renaissance years, they could do some damage.
