Nets among oddsmakers favorites to win 2023 NBA title

According to Draft Kings Sportsbook, the Nets, Warriors, Celtics and Clippers have identical odds to hoist the Larry O'Brien next season. It's pretty shocking that the oddsmakers are so bullish on a Nets squad with so many question marks. Kyrie Irving is likely but not guaranteed to remain in Brooklyn as he can exercise a player option. But the two sides have yet to agree to a long-term extension ahead of the June 30 deadline.
Steve Nash has been a punching bag for the fan base and if the Nets get off to a slow start to the season, calls for his firing will grow even louder. 

Not to mention Ben Simmons hasn't played in an NBA game since June of 2021. Throw into the mix that the supporting cast around Irving and Kevin Durant could look vastly different as virtually all of Sean Marks' off-season additions didn't finish the year in a Nets' uniform. Seth Curry and Joe Harris will be returning from ankle surgery, while Mills has a player option he can exercise this month and Andre Drummond is a free agent. 

 Sounds like a heck of a lot of moving parts and more questions than answers for a supposed title favorite.
