The first two weeks of the NBA season have lived up to the offseason hype.
On opening night, the Celtics took down the Heat in perhaps the most widely anticipated NBA debut. Since then, the Heat have won four straight, winning three in dominating fashion, while the Celtics are still playing top-notch basketball despite a loss to the Cavs.
Also in the Eastern Conference, the Hawks are a bit of a surprise at 4-0. The team has yet to play a true contender, but three road wins is still impressive. After re-signing Joe Johnson and retaining the core group of players who have taken Atlanta to the playoffs the last three years, could the Hawks be for real?
In the West, the Lakers are in championship form, starting the season with a perfect 4-0 record. But the real surprise is the 3-0 Hornets, who have won all of their games over last year’s playoff teams. This summer looked like the end of the Chris Paul era, but he’s staying in New Orleans for now, and the Hornets look dangerous.
Which team do you think has been the most impressive so far this season?
