Celtics favored to win 2022-23 NBA Finals originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

After the Golden State Warriors triumphed in the NBA Finals last month, thoughts about next season have already started percolating.

The Golden State Warriors secured their fourth NBA title in eight seasons, following their 2022 NBA Finals win against the Boston Celtics in a six-game series. Boston fans are optimistic about the Celtics pulling through on their next trek to the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy considering their new addition of guard Malcolm Brogdon, while the Bay Area foresees a fifth NBA title, so long as their injury count stays low

But some of last season’s other top teams are also looking strong. The Phoenix Suns, who led the league with 64 wins last season before losing in the second round, locked down their young star, Devin Booker, and also paid up to keep Deandre Ayton by matching the Indiana Pacers’ $133 million offer sheet. Other stars who’ve signed big extensions include Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans and the Denver NuggetsNikola Jokic.

Let’s take an early look at the NBA Finals odds for the 2022-23 season:
