Why is Nick Nurse Among the Favorites?

The Toronto Raptors head coach had been listed at 6-1 odds back in late March when it looked like Frank Vogel was toast.

Like Mark Jackson, he too has been Lebron James approved.

SB Nation's Jack Rude writes:

Nurse would, unquestionably, be an upgrade even for how underrated Vogel was by too many Laker fans. After leading Toronto to a title with Kawhi Leonard, Nurse has overseen a rebuild for the franchise while remaining competitive. Eventually, with a new core, Nurse has the Raptors back in the playoffs this season.

The Raptors were Playoff bound to be certain.  They had the 5th best record in the Eastern Conference as of April 12.  They were only three games back from the three teams listed 2nd through 4th in the standings and five back from the leaders, the Miami Heat.

Nurse is among those who wasn't exactly thrilled with how the Lakers handled ridding itself of Vogel.
