NBA’s biggest surprises, disappointments so far

The NBA season is only 10 days old, but it’s not too early to take a look at the biggest surprises and disappointments so far. Our writers weigh in.

1. Which team is off to the most surprising start?

Howard Beck: Warriors, at 4–1 (with an OT loss). Their renaissance was supposed to come in January—after Klay Thompson presumably returns to the lineup following a two-year absence. But Steph Curry apparently couldn’t wait. He’s putting up MVP numbers again: 30 points, 8 rebounds, 6.6 assists per game. Jordan Poole and Damion Lee are having early breakouts. And old man Andre Iguodala is still doing Iguodala things. This looks sustainable.
