Few things have been surprising so far in this 2008-2009 NBA campaign. The Celtics are good, the Thunder are (is? I hate teams with nicknames that don’t end in an “S”) bad, LeBron is dominating, Larry Hughes isn’t (what do you expect from a guy with a website named after his suckitude?) and Marbury is still a cancer. One surprising story of the first third is the emergence of a guy who played college ball at New Mexico, was drafted outside of the lottery and is holding together a franchise in a basketball-crazy area.
