It's hard to remember a season where so many teams that were expected to be so bad have started so good. That's the case in not only Philadelphia (3-2), but also Orlando (3-2) and Phoenix (3-2). Notice, we didn't say Utah (0-5).
As far as the Suns are concerned, every move they made prior to the season suggested that they were starting anew and building for the future, even if it meant enduring a poor 2013-14 season. Has that changed? Could the cast of Eric Bledsoe, Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee be a whole lot better than anyone expected?
