25-7!, 8 wins from last years total already!! #1 offense in the league(108.6ppg)!!! Top 5 (LMA) and top 10 (Lillard) tier player on the same team!!!! Top 5 team in the NBA!!!!! But.........what does this mean this early in the season. Fluke? Pattern of things to come?? Or simply a hot start leading to an inevitable first or second round whimper??? I ask this to gauge the B-edge community to find out what is truly the thoughts of us.
Some facts....THUS far, we have a great scoring team (108.6) good for first in the league. 4th best rebounding(46.0), 4th best assisting team in the league(24.0). Which means we are getting it done in the dirty areas. Let me digress......anyone remember the hustle board we had in the M.C. I remember always beating the other team on the boards, getting a good number of blocks and also steals. Always loved beating the other team on the hustle board, usually meant we won the game. Anyways, this team seems similar in that they hustle, scrap, and fight for every game.
I ask, what does it mean? I'll leave a poll so we can all vote but my vote goes toward it being a pattern of this team and the talent we have. To have a top tier post player and a top tier perimeter scoring player AND to top it all off three perfectly complimentary player starting along with a well rounded bench is not something seen around these parts in quite some time. So, i ask you B-edge nation, Fluke? Pattern of things to come?? Or simply a hot start leading to an inevitable first or second round whimper???
