The start of the 2022-2023 NBA regular season is approaching and the NBA Championship odds still look a lot different from where they were a year ago, as the Boston Celtics lead the way as favorites. The Celtics major offseason move to this point has been the addition of Malcolm Brogdon, and it’ll add more depth to a roster than almost won the NBA Finals last season. Following the Celtics in the championship odds are a handful of teams who made deep playoff runs last year, including the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, but the one exception is the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers were eliminated in the play-in tournament in the 2021-2022 season but the return of Kawhi Leonard is expected to bring them to the championship contending tier. The Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks round out the top five and all five of those teams have single digit odds to win the 2023 NBA Championship.
The 2022-2023 NBA Regular Season will begin on October 18 2022.
