Golden State Warriors' start an illusion

113

ESPN Insider article by Tom Haberstroh. I hope we can prove him wrong in time. But looking deeper into the opening act, there are signs that the Warriors' hot start should be attributed more to beginner's luck than actual talent. Although the Warriors have reached 7-4 with mostly smoke and mirrors, it may be the perfect time to cash in and start shopping guard Monta Ellis, who's averaging 26.5 points, 4.8 assists and 2.5 steals on the season. The 25-year-old undersized 2-guard is this generation's answer to Allen Iverson, a scorer who built his reputation on gaudy point totals as opposed to efficiency that would help his team win more games. The 7-4 start should raise the spirits for a franchise in need of a serious confidence boost. But rest assured, after some fortuitous scheduling, this Warriors start is more fluke than for real.
