And what do you know, the Warriors are still the favorites. As of this publishing date, Caesars gives the Warriors the top odds at +200. 

But wait, who's that with the third-best odds? Ahh those pesky Knicks who haven't won a title since 1973. 

This comes with the clear assumption that the Knicks will at the very least sign Warriors star Kevin Durant this summer during free agency. Plenty of people around the league have long rumored KD's departure from the Bay Area with a move to the Big Apple. 

There's even the chance that Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving could join Durant on the Knicks.

So far, Durant has given no public indication if he'll return to the Warriors next season or move on and find a new home. All he and the Dubs are focused on right now is getting his strained right calf healthy so both sides can reach their goal of completing a three-peat.

Recent history shows the Knicks sure do get the result they want when the odds are in their favor, too. See Williamson, Zion.
