Curry talks repeat, Warriors 11/2 to win
During a visit to the Philippines on Saturday, Warriors' star Stephen Curry discussed how he and his teammates feel as though they're still the team to beat next year.
"We feel like we're still the team to beat," the NBA's most valuable player (MVP) told reporters in the capital when asked about his team's odds of defending their title during the 2015-2016 season that starts on October 27.
"It's going to be a different challenge for us. We've never defended an NBA championship before so it will be a new experience for us," the 27-year-old added.
"All eyes are on our team and every other team is trying to knock us off our throne, so we have to be even better than we were last year to get back to the top."
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Warriors are currently 11/2 to win the NBA Championship in 2016. The Cleveland Cavs are currently favored to win it all at 5/2, while the San Antonio Spurs have 7/2 odds to win next year's NBA title.
