    The Warriors, The Sixers, and other early season observations

    I know it's early in the season so not many are paying attention, but the Warriors just set the NBA record for consecutive wins to start a season at 16-0. The chemistry with this team is sick.


    The Sixers are by far the worst team I've ever seen in the NBA. It's like the owners don't even care. They are 0-15 at this point, I think. We all know MJ and the Bulls had the best record ever at 72-10, but is it possible the Sixers could set records? I think Charlotte back in the strike shortened season of 2012 only managed 7 wins. I think Philly can match that!


    I don't even know what to say about the Lakers, other than they are lucky Philly is around to take some of the attention off them. Byron Scott benching top picks like D'Angeol Russel is not going to help them in the future. When did kobe decide he was a 3 point specialist? He's jacking up close to 7 three pointers a game, and he's only hitting 1 of them per game on average. I don't know if he's just hanging around trying to break a scoring record or what, but injuries and age have caught up to him at this point.


    With as good as the chemistry has looked in Golden State, the chemistry for the Clippers is just as BAD. That team is so deep it's ridiculous, and they are hovering around .500 for the season. no excuse


    OKC looks good under Billy D, but Durant needs to stay healthy


    Cleveland is the best team in the East right now, and they are on cruise control. This is going to be LeBrons toughest season to date though. He's already playing through a lingering back injury. If they are going to have a shot at getting back to the finals, minutes are going to need to be limited for him.


    Miami is second in the East. A rejuvinated squad looking to bounce back from last season poor showing. Bosh and wade averaging about 18 each. They look good.

    Golden State is good, but that is because Curry is just that damned good. He's like Steve Nash mixed with Ray Allen... and maybe a bit of Iverson tossed in. I've never seen someone who can cut through the defense so effortlessly (while looking oddly tight and uncoordinated) and then just toss the ball towards the rim and score. We are still in the Lebron age, but but when its all said and done Curry might go down as the best player in the modern era.

    Re: The Warriors, The Sixers, and other early season observations

    Golden State is on fire and clearly the top team in the NBA right now, I have faith that when San Antonio gets rolling, they can beat anyone in a series. With the addition of Aldridge, San Antonio should have enough weapons to play with anyone. Kawhi Leonard is the best two-way player in the NBA, he can score 20 PPG and body up your best player. I am not sure that Golden State has a matchup for the Spurs in a playoff series, if Golden State goes small, the Spurs can finally match that (or decide to go really big and run a deliberate pace) with Aldridge playing the five and letting four guards play.

    I don't know if San Antonio can beat Golden State in a series, I do know they will give them a fight. So would Oklahoma City, Golden State has never had to deal with a fully loaded OKC team. No one on that roster can contain Durant or Westbrook. Green is not quick enough, Igoudala might not have enough left in the tank, Barnes lacks the quickness for Westbrook, Thompson can be beat on defense and we all know Curry is not a good defender.

    I don't see how Curry could surpass LeBron without winning more titles, Curry has a better handle and is the better shooter while LeBron is better at everything else including passing the ball.

    well he's only behind Lebron by one.


    And Golden State is doing all this right now with Luke Walton as their head coach. Thus proving that you really don't need a head coach in the NBA.

    LeBron has only won two, but played in five. Curry has played in only one.

    He will have to become a Finals mainstay like the LeBron's, Kobe's, Duncan's, and Shaq's before he is in that class.

    Re: The Warriors, The Sixers, and other early season observations

    Golden State still looks real solid right now. It's evident they can beat just about all the teams in the league that aren't the Spurs, Thunder, with relative ease. The telling tale of their storybook regular season and streaks will be tested at the end, when GS plays SA twice. Still can't afford to look ahead to those games, because the Warriors still play the Jazz (road), Celtics, Trail Blazers, and Grizzlies twice. All those teams have more to play for than GS right now.

    SA is almost out of running for top seed, but if GS stumbles and Spurs win both meetings left its possible.

    But even without it, do not just write San Antonio off, they can beat GS in a series. GS has a better five, but SA has better bench and a top 3 coach of all time. If SA is healthy and no one is too ran down, they are only team that could beat GS.

    Lebron should have never left Miami. He isn't winning another championship in Cleveland. His frustration is mounting with every game.

    @Bama Man -

    Agreed. SA may be in the superior position right now. GS is garnering all the attention, pressure, and love from everyone. Meanwhile the Spurs quietly take care of business. It wouldn't surprise me either that SA beats GS in the playoffs, if they meet. They are just built to beat the Warriors and have the right coach leading the team. Gregg Popovich is so underrated, IMO. Best coach in the NBA the last 10 years, IMO.
