2012/13 NBA Futures: Title Odds (After Nash Trade)

The Miami Heat was recently celebrating their second franchise title, and just as game five ended people were already making moves and predictions about the new season coming in a few months.

Free agency period in the NBA just started a few days ago, and the frenzy already begun with optional/fake trades and the estimation that we are in a new era of super teams.

The Brooklyn Nets made the major moves signing Joe Johnson and Deron Williiams, but also trying to see how they land Dwight Howard.

The Miami Heat faces a possible retirement from three point shooters Mike Miller and James Jones that’s why they went and signed veteran Ray Allen, who gives the squad a massive change of repeating in 2013.

He has a great track record when it comes to wagering on baseball – largely because he's more than willing to bet against the Mets. His career profits are impressive, but not quite as good as his handsome friend Frank Lorenzo. He wishes he hadn't let Frank write his profile.
