January is a good measuring stick month to say the least

this is the stretch where the league takes notice and the fear they felt in the offseason returns...8-1 run :jam2:

Not yet, but they will be by the time they will have to be.

Nash has only been back two games and you can already see a MEGA difference in play. Chemistry will continue to get better. Pau can only get better with Nash in the starting 5. Metta is in the best shape of his career. Dwight is still working himself back into condition and improving as they go. And then there's that Kobe guy who's shooting a career percentage.

I think the 4 game road trip (even though the LAC game doesn't count) will be good for bonding purposes and this next stretch will be a good evaluation of where the team is and what they MUST improve on between now and May.
