Has surprised you the most? It could be good or bad.

For me, it's Jared Sullinger. He looking real nice in pre season but hasn't done anything so far.

Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum. Both are extremely positive surprises and I'm hoping they continue to improve.

Jeff Green. He's surprised me on how he's been terrible these past 6 games. I seriously thought he was going to be our top bench scorer, even over Jet. But somehow he's struggling to reach 10 points. Thankfully, it's still the beginning of the season and he has time to shake it off and turn things around. At least I hope he does...

And also Courtney Lee, he's been missing threes like crazy. He shot 40% from beyond the arch last year, so I KNOW he can get things going.

I know this all negative but I'm that type of fan that not only critiques the good stuff, but also the bad. Because if we're doing bad or losing games, we need to know why.

But on a positive note, KG, Pierce, and Rondo have been KILLING it since the start of the season. Rondo consistenly dishing dimes getting 10+ assists, Pierce consistenly lighting up the scoreboard getting 20+ points, and Kevin consistenly cleaning the glass getting 10+ rebounds. If they can continue this play and also get the bench going, expect big things.

I was going to say Green but last night he played REALLY well.

Yea, I know, but I want him to keep that play up for at least the rest of this month, or maybe even a couple weeks so I know it's real and not just a "good game".

I agree. He needs to continue to be agressive

I was expecting more out of Green, there was a point in time when we were considering starting this guy...doesn't look like it would have been a good idea from I've seen so far.

Raymond Felton has impressed me, coming back to his old team. Making good plays. Also Ronny Brewer has been very well behind the arc. But I still think, the Knicks will need to rely on a good solid team effort to do better than last year.

They have a 2-3 record or so because Kemba has been rolling.

Well my favorite team have neen the Cavs since the day I started watching the NBA, 2001.

I was definitely heartbroken after "The Decision" was made by LeChoke. I feel like we could've won not 1, not 2, not 3, but multiple rings with him.

What I wanna say is that Kyrie has been telling um. Dion Waiters has been telling um too, but inconsistently. Dion needs improvement if we want to suceed, but I do think we will have the best backcourt in the league in the near future when assholes like LeBron and Wade retire.

Ehh he might've surprised you guys but he didnt surprise me. I said before the season started that my two biggest MIP candidates are kemba and mayo and they seem to be two of the leaders in the MIP race right now even tho the season just started

So many to choose from. I'd have to say Greg Stiemsma even though JJ Barea and Chase Budinger are nice options as well. I knew Stiemsma was good but in limited minutes he's shined. Doesn't always show through the stat line though :(

ray pls

Do not call me a bandwagon. We both know I have been a Cavs fan but I just didn't want anybody to know because I was too embarrassed after what LeBron did to us.

Rajon Rondo- Not surprising all that much. I saw his improvement with his jumper and now he is hitting it consistently. Sure, he isn't as great as D-will is shooting but he has to be tightly guarded. Even with the tight guarding, Rondo is dishing the assists very well, as he got a 20 assist game two games ago, and he is averaging 15 points, 14 assists, 4 rebounds. Love it so far, keep it up Rondo!

Kevin Garnett- We aren't rebounding but Kevin Garnett is. I'm loving his rebounding so far. KG had 7 rebounds in 5 minutes 2-3 games ago, and we needed it badly. Along with that, KG is scoring well and he is getting double-doubles. I want more scoring out of KG, but it is well! Nothing surprising though.

Paul Pierce- he has been a little surprising. He has been getting 6-7 rebounds a game so far which I didn't think he would be getting, and he has been passing oddly well, with 2 of his passes on Top 10 by Sports-Center. Good scoring by pierce, keep it up!

Jeff Green- Green is surprising but it is negative. Green was scoring 25+ in pre-season, and dunking on everyone. The dude is struggling to get 10 points. He is supposed to be challenging Jet as the best bench player and proving all those doubters wrong?! Lets go Green- I know you can be B.I.G.

The Entire Bench- This is surprising. I know there is 8 new players, but I really expected better defense and offensive flow. Sure, learning a completely new defense isn't easy and it is very complicated but I expect better defense against teams like the Wizards or Bucks. Step it up bench, like now!!

Courtney Lee- Lee, oh Lee. He is averaging 4-6 points and it is so disappointing and annoying at the same time. Rondo gets Lee W.I.D.E O.P.E.N three-point shots. He shot 40% last year, but when he is shooting 3s now he is looking like a big man shooting it, and not Kevin Love. Defense has been surprisingly good from Lee, but the offense isn't there. A few mid-range jumpers isn't making up for 4-5 missed 3s.

Celtics Record- It is gross, fix it quickly. At least I'm not a Lakers fan.
