The 2022-23 NBA season is in full swing, and the Boston Celtics remain the favorites to win the NBA Championship despite the flux of issues the team experienced right before games began. With Giannis Antetokounmpo putting in some serious work to start 2022-23, the Milwaukee Bucks are right behind the Celtics in the title odds. The two-time MVP is also right behind Luka Doncic in the MVP odds. Despite the play of Dallas’ star guard in the early going after opening the season as the MVP favorite, the Mavericks are only eighth in the title odds discussion. The Los Angeles Clippers remain the favorites to come out of the West, but the Golden State Warriors are right behind them. As for some of the other individual awards: Paolo Banchero already looks like a lock to win Rookie of the Year, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has emerged as the early favorite to win Most Improved Player and it appears Utah’s Will Hardy and Boston’s Joe Mazzulla will be the ones duking it out for Coach of the Year.
