Lakers News: Team Opens With 50-1 Odds To Win 2015 Championship

With the San Antonio Spurs’ five-game domination of the Miami Heat complete, thoughts have already begun moving towards next season. There are still a number things to happen until that time, the NBA Draft and free agency chief among them. But that hasn’t stopped LVH SuperBook from releasing their odds for next season.

According to ESPN, the Lakers opened up at 50-1 before moving to even greater odds:

The only other odds adjustment the past week has been the Lakers raised from 50-1 to 60-1

The odds should come as no surprise. The Lakers finished with the sixth worst record in the NBA this past season and while they will be returning Kobe Bryant, it will take far more than that to move the Lakers into title contention.

The Lakers still haven’t named a new coach, but Byron Scott has emerged as a favorite. Although they have a lot of cap room, the Lakers are not expected to make a big splash unless they feel they have a chance to lure LeBron James to Los Angeles.

      They should’ve waited until mid August or so given FA hasn’t started.

  • Doan Nguyen

    • winners circle

      Yeah the Lakers are being mentioned with the worst teams in the NBA these days.Jim Buss should’s Never let his ego hurt his decision making.I wish Jim Buss was more like Peter Holt the Spurs owner,he just lets his employees run the team smoothly while standing out of the way completely a hands on owner can spell doom for a franchise.This is dark days.Jeanie Buss is no better from what i have been reading about her lately.

    The Lakers are up the against the odds.They have to do a long rebuild.NO PLAYOFFS for awhile.No pipe dreams,No nothing just bottom out for a few years.Then hope they draft the right guys and favorably get a good free agent.

  • iEATcelticBabies

    how to shart on your father’s great legacy??? behold, i give you jim buss.

  • vdogg

    it’s a bit early to be predicting, don’t you think? relax, people? the lakers have a lottery pick in a loaded draft and a lot of cap space. they have THREE players on the roster at the moment. you really think they’re going to be playing 3-on-5 when the first game tips off in october? calm down.

    • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

      If they do, then everyone will be right that Jim Buss has ruined the franchise! People are stupid…

  • J.O. Lakers

    The Lakers should draft Marcus Smart if J Randle & Gordon are gone. I also like Lavine from UCLA.

  • josh

    who gives a shit, bad odds don’t dictate play. this article and the odds given are irrelevant. cavs had less than a 2% chance at #1 but look what happened.

  • Corteck

    I Hope the numbers are right good luck Lakers

  • Nick Crognale

    Draft Marcus smart!!!!!! Best guard prospect in the draft, lock down defender so Kobe can always take the easier matchup on d an he’s gonna be able to score too.. Forget Julius Randell theres a bunch of guys that can get boards, how many lock down combo guards are there? With the potential smart has. Draft Marcus smart!!!!
