The 2022–23 NBA season has been nothing short of fascinating with a flurry of interesting trades and player movements that have kept fans on the edge of their seats. The league saw some big-name players move to different teams, including Kevin Durant joining the Phoenix Suns and Kyrie Irving joining Luka Doncic in the Dallas Maverick’s back court. The competition has been fierce, and the playoff picture remains tightly contested with many teams jostling for playoff seeding. With the season winding down, the excitement is palpable as every game counts, and the competition only intensifies. All eyes are on the players, coaches, and teams as they strive to secure a coveted spot in the playoffs and ultimately, the championship.
1. Boston Celtics (#2 Seed in the East )
The Boston Celtics have looked solid yet again, with a league second-best record of 45–18 as of March 3rd, 2023. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have lead the team to consistent wins and with the help of veteran Al Horford, defensive livewire Marcus Smart and the highly efficient addition of Malcolm Brogdon only boost the odds of the Celtics making it to back to back NBA Finals.
Odds to win the 2022–23 NBA Championship : +280
2. Phoenix Suns (#4 Seed in the West)
The addition of Kevin Durant is bound to catapult any teams odds of winning an NBA Championship. Kevin Durant joining the Suns with veteran point guard Chris Paul and All Star shooting guard Devin Booker, has massively increased the Phoenix Sun’s odds to win the Championship.
The Suns look like a championship or bust team, only time will tell!
Odds to win the 2022–23 NBA Championship : +450
3. Milwaukee Bucks (#1 Seed in the East)
The Bucks have been one of the best teams in the league for the past few seasons, and the addition of Jae Crowder has increased the roster depth going into the playoffs. Led by Giannis Antetokounmpo’s dominance, the Bucks have a dynamic offense and a strong defense. Despite Khris Middleton yet to get back to his scoring form this season, and with Giannis resting a bit, the Bucks still have an impressive 45–17 record with a 16 game win streak to own the best record in the league. They could well be positioned for their 2nd NBA Championship in 3 years if the team stays healthy.
Odds to win the 2022–23 NBA Championship : +475
4. Denver Nuggets (#1 Seed in the West)
The Denver Nuggets have been very consistent this season, owing to Nikola Jokic who is currently chasing his third consecutive NBA Michael Jordan Regular Season MVP. Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr have regained some form to help the Nuggets top the West with a 44–19 record. The surprise this season has been the teamwork between Jokic and Aaron Gordon.
Jokic’s passing ability and Gordon’s explosive finishing has made them a sizeable 1–2 punch all season. This could well be the season the Nuggets win their first championship in franchise history with Jokic already notching up his 100th career triple double, only 6 behind LeBron James!
Odds to win the 2022–23 NBA Championship : +750
5. Los Angeles Clippers (#7 Seed in the West)
Despite the Clippers currently being the 7th seed in the West, the trio of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Russell Westbrook are naturally expected to have a deep playoff run considering their combined experience. Though the Clippers are currently struggling, losing their first four games since signing Westbrook, Coach Ty Lue is expected to turn things around come playoff time.
Odds to win the 2022–23 NBA Championship : +1300
6. Philadelphia 76ers (#3 Seed in the East)
The Sixers have been able to find a good rhythm of play with Joel Embiid, James Harden and Tyrese Maxey getting into their comfort zones on both offense and defense.
Embiid’s dominating presence on both ends of the floor, Harden’s ability to put the ball on the floor and make the right play has helped the Sixers to the 4th best record in the league with 40–22.
The performances of role players like Maxey and Tobias Harris could well determine the playoff route for the Sixers this season.
Odds to win the 2022–23 NBA Championship : +1400
Additionally, teams like the Dallas Mavericks with the acquisition of Kyrie Irving, the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warrios with talented teams capable of surprises, and the Sacramento Kings have great rosters and the potential to make deep playoff runs and upsets. We’re close the finish and all that’s guaranteed is that its gonna be a tight one!
