Chaotic Start to the NBA Season

The Philadelphia 76ers are off to a HOT start, led by Michael Carter-Williams, posting wins over the Miami Heat, Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls.  The Minnesota Timberwolves are breaking scoreboards around the league, and Kevin Love is leading the NBA is scoring with two 30 point games already.  The Indiana Pacers and Houston Rockets are the only teams living up to expectations, and are dominating their opponents.

Eric Bledsoe is off to a scorching start with the Phoenix Suns averaging 22 points 8.7 assists and 6.3 rebounds per game.  With Goran Dragic potential out for a couple of games with an ankle injury, Bledsoe could see a nice boost in stats.  However, Bledsoe is shooting just 40% and 22% from behind the 3pt line.

Derrick Rose looks rusty, shooting just 28% from the field putting up 14.3 points, 4.3 assists and 3.7 rebounds per night.

Russell Westbrook returned to the Oklahoma City Thunder after just 2 games!  He was thought to be out until around Christmas time!  He looked good dropping 21 points 7assists and 4 rebounds on the Suns.  Reggie Jackson can be let go.
