The Phoenix Suns may be currently riding a 16-game winning-streak but it’s the Golden State Warriors who currently possess the NBA’s best record to begin the 2021-22 season.

Stephen Curry has been electric for the Warriors, as he always is. He’s averaging MVP-level stats this season as he’s producing 28.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 6.9 assists while shooting a staggering 41.7% from deep on 13.1 attempts per game.

Draymond Green has lead the Warriors to being the NBA’s best defense and soon Klay Thompson will be back in the fold. The offseason additions the team made have been pivotal in the team elevating their game while Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole continue to develop. Could adding another key piece make this team all the more lethal?

The San Antonio Spurs attempted to tread water with DeMar DeRozan as a franchise-cornerstone but just couldn’t get enough talent around him in a loaded Western Conference to complete. There isn’t a clear building block serving as the central fulcrum of the team with DeRozan now a member of the Chicago Bulls.
