Bulls are 50-1 to win the NBA Championship

The Bulls' odds to win the NBA Title have fallen dramatically. | AP

Heading into this season, most oddsmakers had the Bulls as the second-best team in the Eastern Conference and gave them a decent shot at winning the NBA Title.

Some had them listed as low as 12-1 to win their seventh championship in franchise history.

That was before Fred Hoiberg’s laid-back approach, Joakim Noah’s season-ending injury, the disappearance of their defense, etc.

After the trade deadline, updated its odds, dropping the Bulls to 50-1.

The long odds, though, are more a reflection of the Golden State Warriors’ dominance than the Bulls’ dysfunction. The defending-champion Warriors, who were listed as a 5-1 second-favorite to the Cavs, have now fallen to 4-7 as they home in the 72-win record. The Raptors are the only team that has jumped ahead of the Bulls since the opening lines were posted last June.
