Biggest surprise / upset so far?
Biggest surprise for me so far is the success of the Knicks. I'm stil not sure what exactly happaned to this teams mentality - maybe just J-Kidd... They seem to be the opposite of the Lakers so far who don't know how to bring it all together. Will be interesting to see what Amare will do when back and if JR Smith can play a single season on a constant high level.
Biggest Upset for me is of course the Wizards. I was pretty sure that they should be much improved with their new veteran frontcourt and the growth of Vesely, Singleton and Crawford. Beal has big trouble to be effective in the backcourt without Wall.
My new favorite player and wears #35 and is called - Kenneth Farried! I flat out love the way he plays basketball. Not the most talented guy on the court but a true leader and always fighting for the ball. He's still very raw but he will get better and people often don't realise that guys like him, who will get 30 mins due to their hustle and tough play, develop much faster than guys who have to fight fot every minute because they deliver more than they hurt their teams the majority of the game.
Other than that I'm disapointed in Anthony Davis. Not that he didn't show flashes of greatness in his limited games but I really hope we don't have the next great bigman prospect with fragile bodyparts...
Blake Griffin is more and more a mystery for me. After his rookie campaign I was completely sold on him but I beginning to wonder what path he will go and I have no clue about that.
Boston seems to be in trouble this season. On paper they still have a very good and deep team. But I'm still not sure if Jeff Green is the right choice to be a bench guy. He was the reason why I became a Thunder fan back in his rookie season but he ssems to be very very uneffective from the bench.
I'm very happy that the Thunder are doing well after the Harden trade. I was very very upset after that happend mainly because HArden clearly chose to leave this team. The Thunder gave him the best offer they could but it wasn't enough in his mind. All of last season he told peaople about sacrifices but in the end he didn't do any of them. Now I'm okay with that and wish him the very best in Houston. He will be a Top 2 sg for the remainder of his contract and maybe he did the right move for him personally even if I think what he left in OKC could have been (and I'm sure it still will be!) a dynasty.
I'm very happy that Andre Drummond is showing what a beast he is in Detroit! I was rooting for the Pistons before the draft to get him because I thing he is the perfect ying to Monroes yang! I never liked the Pistons but I'm very very happy for them!
Biggest surprise imo is the Lakers......all that talent on paper and they look bad, although there is time to turn it around. Not saying press the panic button tho.
Biggest surprise is the Bobcats of course though almost no way they can continue to win like this
I am a bit suprised / upset at the following.
Little to none, playing time for John Jenkins and Jeremy Lamb. I also thought Beasley and Wes Johnson would of been better this season
I think Beal will take time to develop, I still think he will be a decent pro.
Pleasant surprises - Good to see Sheed back and Jae Crowder got a few starts for the Mavs
I forgot i am MOST UPSET with Royce White. He was one of my favs in the last draft. Yes, you have anxiety but they reckon about 10% of the population suffers from it aswell. Stop all your twitter crap !! Most of us on here would give our left nut just step on the court and play one game in the NBA...
I'm suprised how well they are playing, and wihtout Bogut. They are a fun team to watch and Curry is a threat from everywhere on the floor. Its fun watching him drain the deep ball.
This past week, Larry Sanders. He is blocking shots like crazy. Hope he can keep it up
Biggest Disapointment is all the injuries to the TWolves. They can't catch a break. And B Roy, dude had a lot of heart to come back, it a shame to see his comeback follow this path.
Also, very happy to see the Lakers flusterd, that will never get old.
