They're the clear-cut favorite to win the NBA championship, and it appears that only a few teams might be able to get in the way of their quest to repeat.

Even so, they're getting very little respect both in the public's eyes as well as the media and offshore sportsbooks. They're a 7-point underdog in the National Championship Game against the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide.
