Boston without a doubt.

Denver because I expected Boston to be this good.

11-05-2009, 01:16 PM
its not much of a question.

Boston beat cleveland at their place. The Celtics have destroyed 3 teams completely.

Denver has been very impressive. but the Celtics have ripped through teams. last night they played horrendous and still won just bc they have so much depth.

Boston have been killing teams so far, I'd say they've been more impressive.

I do really like Denver though, I think a lot of people are going to be very impressed by them by the end of the season.

This. Not taking anything away from Boston but most people thought they'd have a start a bit like this. I mean weren't they lik 27-2 to start last season? Denver although they were the 2 seed last year everydoby was sleeping on them, and so far have been extremely impressive.

Denver nuggs
Boston is supposed to win

11-05-2009, 01:23 PM
i hate to say it but Denver

11-05-2009, 01:27 PM

For Boston not being this impressive would be a surprise.

11-05-2009, 02:18 PM
Denver, considering their missing one of their key players in JR Smith.

Bostons a better team denvers been more impressive

11-05-2009, 03:03 PM
as much as i dislike Boston, they've been the most impressive team thus far

11-05-2009, 03:41 PM
Denver because I didnt expect Melo and Lawson to be that good

11-05-2009, 04:01 PM
Boston... go into Cleveland to start the season and beat Lebron, have torn UP most the teams they've played... Boston looks unstoppable so far

11-05-2009, 04:56 PM
So you guys think its more impressive for a group of overachievers to win with an unsustainable level of play than it is for the Celtics to be winning on talent and cohesion?

I guess I can follow that train of thought, its more surprising to me than it is impressive. Impressive would be do be able to dominate when everyone already knows how good you are.

11-05-2009, 05:16 PM
I'm a Boston fan, but i'm also a Melo fan. I have to go with Denver.

I say Denver b/c we all expected Boston to do what they're doing

11-05-2009, 10:41 PM
the celtic wins have been more impressive but like everyone has said, it is somewhat expected. denver has been more suprising to most. they look great and i had a feeling we might be seeing lawson and billups working together. they could be the sleeper this year.

Denver for sure.

This year Melo will play his best basketball so far (well...by the way...so do Deron Williams).

11-06-2009, 09:20 AM
Boston hasnt allowed more than 90 points yet. Jus sayin.....

Boston gets back a perennial all-star in Kevin Garnett, adds another former all-star and one of the most sought after free agents in Rasheed Wallace to an already strong team that did start last year at 27 and 2.

Denver jettison's their starting 2 guard, his replacement gets suspended for the first 7 games and they have to play their veteran backup point guard at the 2. They also have to give major minutes to a rookie point guard and ask their starting point guard to swing over to the 2 as well. They also lose one of their key players off of the bench to an overseas team and trade for a player no one has really heard about and sign two players for the vetearn minimum. They then have to play their two main competitors for the Northwest division title at the start of the season in back 2 back games on national television one at home and one in Portland where they arrive at the hotel at 4:17 a.m. because Denver received 18 inches of snow. They then have to go on a six game road trip where they rip through the first two teams they play.

Not to take anything away from Boston whose play has indeed been impressive but what Denver has overcome is nothing short of miraculous, just having a winning record at this point with JR under suspension would've satisfied most Denver fans to be undefeated was way beyond hope!!

I say the Boston Celtics after they completely destroyed the Bobcats and kept their points in the 50s and 1 person on that team scored only 10 points while everybody else scored below 10 points.

11-06-2009, 01:52 PM
I selected Boston in the poll, but I really don't think its possible to tell just yet. Both teams have been playing great so far, Boston is winning by more points while Denver is scoring more points, which suggests that Boston is better on defence and Denver is better on offence. Coupled with that, Denver has relied on Anthony for big nights to blow teams out, where as the Celtics are spreading the ball. I don't want to hate on either team at this point, but Boston has played Cleveland already, as well as the team that pushed them to 7-games in the playoffs, and Denver hasn't had any big tests yet, Utah or Portland are the best two teams they've played, and neither team has played the Lakers, Magic or Spurs. I think we'll get a better idea as to where these teams are at once everybody has stopped by to visit Kobe, Howard and Duncan. But for now, since Boston is playing great defence, I'll go with them since defence wins championships.

I wanna say Denver because I love their style of play. But the thing with Denver is, they're just outscoring teams. Their offense seems as if they score every trip down the court. You have to outscore Denver to beat them.

With the Celtics, even though I only like Jesus Shuttlesworth, they try to shut you down. Stop your team completely from scoring (bobcats). But if they cant stop you from scoring, they have three HOFers that can score with the DEEPEST bench to do the same.

So, my vote is the Boston Celtics.

Their defense is sick.

Boston Their defense is out of this world
