The Warriors didn't receive any upgrades despite a record-setting start, nor did the Rockets receive any downgrades after getting blown out in their first three games before bouncingÂ back last night. Considering the season is so young it's not surprising that only a handful of players were moved up or down.
Kobe Bryant is the player with the highest profile to be a...
