2013 NBA Championship Odds: Thunder Come In At 5/1

If Vegas is correct, the Thunder will have a chance for revenge in 2013.

At 5/1 odds, the Thunder are the most-likely Western Conference team to win the 2013 NBA championship. Given that the Western teams behind OKC — the Lakers, Spurs and Mavericks — are relying on some aging superstars, it's easy to see why many believe the best is yet to come for the Thunder, who used the youngest starting five in the NBA Finals in 35 years this season.

On the other hand, LeBron James promised more than one championship for the Heat (more than seven, actually), and one wonders how Miami will perform without all that pressure.

Kevin Durant shed some tears Thursday night, but it might not be long before he's raising the championship trophy.
