2022 Surprises & Disappointments - Part 1

Evan Fourner is a #1 scoring option
He signed for pretty big $ in Detroit and so far its been a perfect marriage. Detroit is never going to be able to land a star and Evan is atleast scoring like one. He is scoring 23 per game while shooting 45% from the field and 3. They finally have Griffin's contract coming off the book so the future looks bright for Detroit.

Klay Shows No Signs Off Rust
He is back playing after his two major injuries and its like nothing ever happened despite a lower overall grade by the experts. He is scoring 24 per game and shooting in the mid 40's. The bad news Golden State still isn't winning despite adding two lottery prospects on top of Wiseman from last year.

Knicks Are Good ?
They were suppose to be one of the worst teams in the NBA we had them in the tanking section. They are 15-8 and well in the playoff race in the East. They came into the season with 30 million in unused cap space and just spent 13 of that on Danny Green who was a FA waiting for the right spot. Danny had a big year last year and will start as Kevin Knox wasn't getting it done. The front court of Robinson and Randall is playing great and Robinson is a all star lock. The rookie PG they traded up in the draft is averaging 16 & 8.


Thunder Still Awful
They jumped up to our trying to win ranking this year after adding two top 5 rookies that were NBA ready. They also added Elfred Payton who finished top 5 in assist last year and have a decent bench. They are still awful with just 3 wins in 24 games. Nobody outisde of their big 3 of Malone, Schrempf and SGA are scoring in double figures. They still have some cap space and all kinds of 1st so could make another move this year.

Ball Brothers Bad
Lonzo signed on for 18 million per year and that contract has quickly looked like a bad one. He is playing 25 minutes per game with averages of PPG 6.3, REB 4.9, AST 7.3. He is also shooting 29$% from the field and from 3. The Pelicans have depth at G so they are expected to trade him soon maybe to the above Thunder.

Lamelo in year 2 hasn't took the leap everyone projected while playing 30 minutes a game which is 8 minutes more then last year. His stats are PPG 11.9, REB 6.0, AST 6.6, FG% 36, 3% 27. The Hornets about made the playoffs last year and are a fringe playoff team again

Time For Bulls To Blow It Up
The decided to run it back paying Makkanen big $ and not trading Levine after drafting Joe Dumars. They also have two veterans coming off the bench in Demarcus Cousins and Otto Porter. They are still one of the worst teams in the NBA with a 7-15 record. The big man pairing of Markkanen and Wendall Carter just isn't leading to wins. They also have Levine who is about to be a FA and they just drafted someone in the top 5 at his position. Its time for them to blow it up.
