The residents of Club 5W are an elite bunch. Jalen Rose gets past the ropes to check out this season's five-win teams.
Looking at the standings today, we've got six teams with five wins or more. Let's briefly break down how these fast-starting clubs have moved past the velvet ropes of the elite Club 5W. In no particular order...
• Los Angeles Lakers (5-0)
The best all-around team early in the season -- dominant defensively and offensively even while Kobe Bryant is playing "just" a team brand of basketball. However, the NBA schedule always tests you. They will keep winning, but they're not going 82-0. There will be some tough losses that should allow coach Phil Jackson to work his magic.
