    And the Lakers are the worst (for now)!

    They're the best team in the PNW without a doubt!

    They seem kind of like the Bulls of the 90’s.

    If we win tomorrows game, then we'll start to be able to argue that this team is one of the best in the West.

    Amazing to me is we're 3-0 and I don't think we've come close to clicking for 4 qtrs yet....we're winning with defense and at the free throw line which is a great thing..with this team it can only get better.

    I agree. Haven't even seen one of my favorite players of this years coup yet. Gary MF Payton.

    Meh. It's all fun. Most of these Eeyore's had us 0-3 to start the season.

    This all day long. It's fun when we start the season off not clicking but still 3-0. Obviously we don't know what this team's ceiling or floor is but it seems both are a little higher than most of us had assumed. You started a fun thread, it's not like you wrote this in an article for ESPN.com or something.

    Yeah, this year has been different. Instead of taking so many bad 3's, we are pushing the ball resulting in turnovers. (offensive fouls and forced passes) It is more fun to watch even with the missed lobs, but they still need to clean it up.

    I think we're facing the 1st or 2nd best team tomorrow. Denver is legit. We get a win tomorrow I'll be damn impressed, I just don't think we will. And that's okay.
