    Just curious, odds were worse than this last summer on Lebron coming here or they were similar?

    What team will LeBron James play for in the 2018-19 NBA season?
    Odds as of June 29 at Bovada

    • LA Lakers -155
    • Cleveland Cavaliers +200
    • Philadelphia 76ers +550
    • Boston Celtics +900
    • Houston Rockets +950
    • San Antonio Spurs +2800
    • New York Knicks +3000
    • LA Clippers +4000
    • Miami Heat +4000

    Edit: the next day, lakers became -5000 favorites and the field was +150

    I think this is great news. Like everyone, I have concerns about losing Tucker but stars win championships. We can fill the roster out with floor spreading shooters and let the stars go to work.

    This is like the opposite of last year with LeBron when the Rockets odds got worse and worse as free agency approached.

    If this is the case, shouldn’t our championship odds increase?

    Maybe this is the latest effort by Tilman to make money - classic pump and dump. Spread the of a player coming to Houston (pump), bet against it knowing that it has no chance (dump), and make lots of money. Bonus - do it at competitors' sports books and not your own.

    That would be SUPER easy for the NBA to sniff out. Do you really think Tilman is willing to risk a MULTI-BILLION dollar asset for a quick pump-and-dump?? And that's not even mentioning the criminal charges that would also probably come Tilman's way.....

    Yes, clearly I was being serious. Lots of sportsbooks are going to let you put multi-million dollar bets on random proposition plays. You just need to be wearing a set of these.

    My bad. Didn't realize you were joking. But, given the sheer amount of stupidity that's being passed around like a virus on this board, I hope you can forgive me. It's getting harder and harder to tell who's joking, who's a troll, and who's actually a dumbass.
