I was going to write tonight’s post about the Miami Heat winning the 2012 NBA championship, but that’s so yesterday (it’s technically Friday on the East Coast).
And we live in 2012, where all the Twitter/media/blogosphere care about is what and who’s next.
Not what’s happened.
We no longer hop on the bandwagon, we hop on the pre-bandwagon, trying to be the first Twitterer to “report” the next big thing.
So we here at BallHyped.net wanted to report on, not who won this year’s title, but who’s going to win next year’s title.
And thanks to pregame.com, we have some backup data.
By 12:30 a.m. Friday, Pregame.com had already spammed hundreds of media sites like us with their 2012-13 NBA Future Championship Odds.
And guess who they have winning it all in lucky 2013?
You guessed it, the Miami Heat at 3-1 odds (the same as the Oklahoma City Thunder, oddly enough).
The team least likely to win it all? Who woulda guessed … the Charlotte Bobcats.
In fact, these odds look a lot like the final season standings, but who are we to disagree with the numbers.
So let us be the first to congratulate the Miami Heat on their NBA Championship. The 2013 NBA Title that is.
