Hello Basketball world! It is time for us to talk basketball news. From the best teams to start the 2015-16 season, to the early race to the Kia Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the year trophy, we’ve got you covered. There have been plenty of surprises to start the season. A few non playoff teams from last year are making an impact and climbing their division standings. The Champions, Golden State Warriors are off to a hot start and determined to prove that last year’s run was not “luck.”
It might be early in the season but the Detroit Pistons have made quite an impact. They started the season by winning 5 of their first 6 games, thanks to their big man, Andre Drummond. Andre Drummond, drafted 9th overall back in 2012, is only entering his fourth season but already playing like a veteran. He has the body and the size at 7 feet tall. He has been dominating the boards and leading the league in that category with almost 20 rebounds a game. Reggie Jackson, who has stepped up into a bigger role with the Pistons since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder, has also been outstanding. Jackson is averaging 22 points and five assists per game to start the year. Are the Pistons growing into an elite team or is their dominant run just going to subside? We will need to stay tuned to find out, as they still have 74 games to go.
The Golden State Warriors are another team off to an excellent start. After defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight, the champs set a team record of 10 victories and zero losses. They have been dominant and have outscored their opponents by double digits in almost every game. Their hot start is largely due to MVP Stephen curry, who has been putting up “must see” performances to start the year. Curry is leading the league is scoring with 33.3 points per game. Curry seems to be on his way to break his own 3 point record with the way he is shooting the ball. Is the reigning MVP also on his way to win his second and back-to-back MVP trophy this year? It seems like the champs are determined to silence the critics, and doubter by winning it all again this year.
