Just looked at the standings...the Southwest Conference that put 4 teams in the playoffs and would have put 5 if OKC healthy, seems to have gone to hell save San Antonio.

Quickest way to invalidate a statistic designed to imply you are a great scorer......reveal to me that artist gilmore, Tyson chandler, and Chris Wilcox are also in the club.......

Golden state will not get out of the West. Book it.

No Irving yet, but Cavs vs OKC tonight should be a good one.

It will be interesting to see how that turns out.

Irving is still getting his feet wet coming off injury. He only played 18 minutes his first game back Sunday vs 76ers.

It's rs.

I expected the Warriors to be better this year due to young players getting better.

Curry took a bigger jump than anyone could have predicted but I still want to see if he can keep it up for an entire season. His numbers have come down since the article Dan referenced.

Curry is still on pace for the 50/40/90 club. This is historically great shooting. Noone could have predicted he would be averaging 30+ per game. We'll see if it's still above 30 at the end of the season.

I don't look at Curry as a point guard. I see him as a scorer which brings me to the player I probably enjoy watching most on that team...

Draymond Green. I sportslove his game. I liked him a lot last year but he too has taken a dramatic jump.

Curry is the superstar but Green might be the engine that makes it all work.

Green is 6th in the league in assists with 7.1 per game (more than Curry). Everyone in the league with more apg then Green are point guards.

Green is a wide, strong body who provides a physical presence on the court, part of the reason their "small" lineups work at the level they do.

Green is a box score stuffer with 9.0 TRB 7.1 AST 14.6 PTS. His shooting percentages across the board have improved from last year.

I still think the Warriors won the title one season too early. The Cavs in the finals needed another scorer along with Lebron. Irving probably would have been enough to put them over the hump, IMO.

Having said that, this Warriors team is a different animal compared to last year. Curry looks different walking down the hallway before games. He looks like he knows something. This team is still hungry and ferocous. I think they know they didn't get the usual respect a title winner receives due to all the injuries their opponents suffered in their championship run plus Curry did not get the finals mvp.

It's still all regular season though, so I'm not not crowning anyone yet. I expect the Cavs to be playing at a higher level come playoff time than they are right now. I don't know if the Warriors can play any better this season than they already have. The Spurs could be a factor and it's possible another team rises.
