The Golden State Warriors are destroying everyone in their path this season, and the brilliance of Stephen Curry is the primary reason why.
Thursday night's 46-point outing against the Timberwolves was the latest example of just how unstoppable Curry has become, and afterward, Kevin Garnett, now playing in his 21st NBA season, compared the diminutive point guard to one of the game's all-time greats.
"Like Michael Jordan was a whole other thing, this guy is his own thing," Garnett said, via ESPN's Brian Windhorst. "It's beautiful for basketball."
The theme of that piece is that the Warriors aren't just beating teams -- they're demoralizing them. And looking at their undefeated start through the season's first 10 games, it's difficult to disagree. Golden State is beating its opponents by an average of 17.1 points per game. Their 50-point shellacking of the Grizzlies skews that number a little bit, but just like last year, many of the games the Warriors play end up being complete blowouts by the time the fourth quarter rolls around.
"Playing hard isn't good enough," Grizzlies center Marc Gasol said, and truer words may never be spoken about this incredible version of NBA basketball that Curry and the Warriors have been able to display.
