The Knicks averaging one win per game. And I'm a Knicks fan. Did not see that coming after a lackluster preseason.

Greivis Vasquez is averaging 8.8 assist and is in the Top 5 :D

And the Hornets as a team is allowing the 3rd lowest PPG

JR Smith playing like an elite shooting guard on both ends of the floor. Didn't expect that.

This, no way Smith maintains that kind of efficiency though.

Lowry was having an incredible start till he got hurt... He was #1 ranked in all of fantasy for the first 4 games i think...

I don't have him in any league but i think that Varejao is having an incredible season.

Ya don't say :facepalm: If he maintained a 72% 3 pt percentage they would have to re-write the rulebook.

Lebron. Rebounding like a center, assists like a pg, 3s like ray and fg like a center

KD averaging a double-double. :nod:

Derozan averaging 20/5/2/1. The points/Fg% could be higher if the refs actually called the game fairly (should be at 22-24) and the assists if the players on the team could actually hit open shots (mainly Bargnani :mad:) lol

Yeah, but Lebron lost a nut and uses HGH, just like Lance Bass.

JR Smith is playing really well. RIght now, if the Knicks had 2 all stars he'd be one of them.

He's playing great D, shooting selectively, passing, leading.
The guy is shooting 72% from 3, right now.

Blake Griffin with 16 PPG and 8 RPG. Its just looks like he doesn't want to improve himself.

Kirilenko looks like the year off, playing in the Euroleague, refreshed him to be back at his all star days.

After the game where the Raptors played them I said: "I wish we'd signed Kirilenko instead of Fields."

Varejao has become a legitimate offensive player.

Durant and Lebron putting up double-digit rebounding numbers is impressive (interesting to see how the teams rebound against bigger teams), Wade struggling is surprising (considering that the Heat fans claimed he would bounce back like Wade of '09) and Dwight putting up less than 12rpg is unexpected (although I expect that to change soon).

You do know that Blake is playing hurt/ the least amount of minutes for his career and is actually buying into the team game for the benefit of his team game more on offense for the benefit of the team right? He has also looked very solid by his standards defensively. If you're not seeing improvements in Blake's game you're not watching basketball.

Anywho as for the question I'd go with Damian Lillard and OJ Mayo making threes at a greater rate (http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl_finder.cgi?request=1&match=single&type=totals&per_minute_base=36&lg_id=NBA&is_playoffs=N&year_min=&year_max=&franch_id=&season_start=1&season_end=-1&age_min=0&age_max=99&height_min=0&height_max=99&birth_country_is=Y&birth_country=&is_active=&is_hof=&is_as=&as_comp=gt&as_val=0&pos_is_g=Y&pos_is_gf=Y&pos_is_f=Y&pos_is_fg=Y&pos_is_fc=Y&pos_is_c=Y&pos_is_cf=Y&qual=&c1stat=&c1comp=gt&c1val=&c2stat=&c2comp=gt&c2val=&c3stat=&c3comp=gt&c3val=&c4stat=&c4comp=gt&c4val=&c5stat=&c5comp=gt&c6mult=1.0&c6stat=&order_by=fg3_per_g) than anyone else in the history of the game.

Varejao has been amazing. Half the games he's played he has 15 or more rebounds.

Andre drummond not starting after avgin around 7 pts and 5 rebs and 1 blk on 70+% fg in 12 mins a game, and while detroit continues to get crushed inside and outrebounded with a 6'5" pf starting

oh derozan NEVER getting any calls, or he would be in the higher 20s in ppg, i know he leads the league in fts but if u watch the games the refs really dont give a **** about him.

Didn't expect Kobe in his 17th season to be shooting career highs in FG%, 3PT% and FT%, especially after he shot so poorly last year. We'll see if he keeps it up...

JR smith living up to his potential through five games...scary thought if he remains like this all season

Melo has never consistently played this well. Lets see if he can sustain.

Jennings playing the most well rounded PG with Lowry out :hide:
