Before we delve into what's surprised us so far this NBA season, let's highlight the trends we saw coming a mile away.

Second, the Spurs are great and nobody outside of San Antonio gives a shit. Third, without Derrick Rose the Bulls are about as watchable as an episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York. OK, that felt good. With order restored, let's take a look at what (so far) has surprised us this season.
