If you haven't done so already, now is really the time to start paying attention to what could be a remarkable NBA season.

If you're not yet on the Steph Curry and Golden State Warriors bandwagon yet, get on board.

The Warriors are on course to break Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls' legendary regular season record of 72-10 from 20 years ago

The turnaround in the narrative of Curry and his team has been incredible in the last year. This time 12 months ago, the Warriors were an exciting team who could put a run together in the playoffs, but the consensus would have had the defending champion San Antonio Spurs defeating them in the Western Conference.

They went on to win the NBA Title, destroying LeBron James's Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals.

This year, they've been treated with far more respect, but they weren't being talked about in a historical context.

Then they won their first 24 games. Curry (below) was playing some of the best basketball ever seen and was shooting better than anyone who has ever played the game.

And as the season has gone on, nothing has changed. Curry has become the face of the NBA and has captured the imagination worldwide.

It's an exciting new era and one you really don't want to miss out on.
