They have been 5-2 to start this month and overall look very encouraging, moving the ball around better than they ever have this season.

This power vacuum is perhaps the most unique of its kind and is fairly unprecedented in the modern National Basketball Association era. Detroit, Charlotte and Miami are only represented because their players filled injury roster spots. Curry designed his team around shooters and length. Underappreciated players like DeMar Derozan and Al Horford will quietly contribute while The Greek Freak and the best social media presence in the NBA, Joel Embiid, will always put on a show.
