    Lakers in '86 would come to mind. No way they'd be the favorites come playoff time

    Penny and Shaq weren't favored against the Bulls.

    Last year with Durant being hurt OKC was not considered a legit title contender based on the difficulty of the western conference. KD and Brooke arguably top 5 in nba last year.

    Majority of GM's according to GM polls had the Laker's as the title favorites in 2011.

    So the 2011 Heat might count.

    It'd be debatable, dude did make All-NBA First Team and finished 5th in MVP voting, and was still scoring over 25 ppg in the playoffs.

    The West/Baylor Lakers would have to be considered as well
