Utah Jazz News: Odds To Win 2014-15 NBA Championship


With the conclusion of the 2013-14 NBA season, a lot of people have already looked ahead to next season. For Utah Jazz fans, it is difficult to even look past the upcoming NBA Draft that will take place in a little over a week. For fans of teams like the Spurs, who dismantled the Heat in the NBA Finals, they are looking ahead and wondering if they can repeat as champions.

Bleacher Report put out an article soon after the NBA Finals completed, showing all 30 NBA teams and their chances at winning the NBA championship next season. As you can guess, the Jazz did not get much love in the prediction, which is to be expected. The Jazz will be nearly just as young next season as they were this past season. Also, adding rookies from this draft class means they stay young still.

However, the future is bright in Utah. This upcoming season, the Jazz should improve off their 25 win season, but give them a couple more seasons, and if they can stay together, they can have a really good chance at moving way up this list.

The Jazz are currently sitting 28th out of 30 teams to win the championship next year. Who has the best odds to win it all? Take a look below and see who BR is showing.
