OK, this really isn't a surprise considering the Phoenix Suns are coming off their second worst season in franchise history.

Nonetheless, it can't be easy for longtime Suns fans to see just how low their team is valued in the eyes of Las Vegas oddsmakers.

Because there's no such thing as "too early" in Vegas, Westgate SuperBook has already released 2017 NBA championship odds for all 30 NBA teams.

Westgate gives the Suns 300-1 odds to win their first-ever NBA championship in 2017. The only team with worse odds is the Brooklyn Nets, who are a 500-1 longshot.

The Golden State Warriors, who lost Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, are next season's favorites, with 7-4 odds. Right behind them is the team that beat them, the Cleveland Cavaliers, at 5-2.

Check out the complete list here.

Yes, the odds of the Suns winning it all next season are slim to none, but they'll look to take the next steps toward becoming a contender once again on Thursday, as they own the No. 4 and 13 overall picks in the 2016 NBA Draft.

And hey, if you're feeling lucky, remember this: Leicester City of the English Premier League just became the biggest-ever longshot to win a major championship. Before the season began, Leicester's odds of pulling that off were 1000-1. The Suns' odds look mighty good by comparison, do they not?
