The bookmakers in Las Vegas aren't usually keen to cook up playoff odds for NBA teams, if only because more than half the frickin' league qualifies every year and the majority of those that make it do so in predictable fashion.
Even though there are plenty of teams out there that will inevitably wind up teetering between postseason play and yet another trip to the NBA draft lottery.
What's that? You think it's too early to talk about which 16 teams will be playing on past mid-April? You think we should wait until the preseason has passed and everyone's logged a few meaningful games?
