If you plan on making a bet right now on who will win the NBA title this year, you better get to it. Vegas has the Lakers going off at 300-1. Those are not great odds, but that doesn’t mean that you will be the only one betting on them. Apparently they are currently the most popularly betted team.
I haven’t the slightest clue.
It makes absolutely no sense, but Laker fans know that no matter what this string of bad years is bound to end quickly. The last time we were even half this bad there was a mid-season trade for Pau Gasol and we won two titles shortly after that.
The Lakers have assets and tons of creativity to make big trades happen. So, who do we go after?
I won’t speculate on that right now, but I say go out there and make those bets now.
