It’s been awhile since fans of the Knicks (1973) and Nets (19Never, or 1976 if you count the ABA) have celebrated titles. And coming off a season in which they finished a combined 61 games out of first place (and 50 games under .500), prospects aren’t too high for 2018-19 to break those lengthy droughts.
Oddsmakers agree, with Las Vegas-based MyTopSportsBooks.com placing the MSG denizens at 300/1 and the Barclays Center dwellers at a whopping 400/1.
The favorites? The Warriors are a chalky 1/1, followed by he Celtics at 10/1, Rockets at 15/1 and Lakers at 20/1.
