All-Suspected Surprises team
Which players have exceeded expectations so far? (PER Diem: Jan. 11, 2012)
Two weeks isn't a huge sample, even with the games coming at us out of a fire hose in this compressed schedule. Nonetheless, it's a big enough portion of the season that by now, radical shifts should grab our attention. For instance, if a player has nearly doubled his assist and rebound rate from last season while scoring more and shooting better, that probably would get our attention. Especially if he was leading all point guards in PER, millimeters ahead of a certain MVP winner.
