its been 10-12 games. Lets wait another month before declaring someone to have "fallen off"

Well of course you have to wait some, but you still can tell if a guy has fallen off a bit as well.

Vince, Nash, Houston Rockets..I dont know if its they fallen off but they sure have some bad luck luck each star player going down with a injury in one game. T-mac, then Yao, then Artest. Shouldnt have walked under the ladder.

It's early, but Nash. And well if Yao's foot is acting up this early in the season, I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's not going to have much of a year either. It might take the Artest trade just to keep the Rockets afloat, much less make them a title contender.

These people have decreased dramatically or hasn't met expectations

Nash for sure
Kidd
Brand. He hasn't been as good and productive as people thought he would be
T-Mac. I thought He, Yao, and Artest would be averaging like 20 ppg each
AI. I thought in Detroit he would be getting like 25 or more
Davis. I thought he said he would take LA far
AI #2. Iguidala should be doing way better than 12 ppg
Odom. 10 ppg and 5 rpg?

Marion. I mean, I knew he wouldn't be as great once he left the Phoenix run-n-gun offense but he's been very quiet. He's still having a good year but for a guy with that much talent and in his contract year, I expect to see more.

I dont think Marion is as good now cuz he doesnt have nash and I think he is better in GS or Knicks cuz its fast paced offence

Marion-I know about the mask, but still, come on.
Iggy- Playing the 2 guard is killing him
Rockets big 3- So much hype, and so much dissapointment
Nash- No uptempo offense has neutralized the talents of Nash. The best D on nash is being played by Terry Porter.
Okafor- He's never been better than his ROY year. How glad are the Magic they took D12.

I know it's not this season, but Steve Francis dropped very quickly. Went from a top player, to a below-average player in like 1 year.

Too early to tell, small season samples tell me nothing about a players ability but there have been quite a few slow starts thus far. Vince Carter hasnt been one of them

Players that have been dissapointing thus far: Tracy McGrady (he's always injured), Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash (seems to have aged overnight), Yao Ming (same story, injuries)

Steve Nash has really fallen off.

Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson have had to fall off given their teams' new of existing focus on defense.
