As a team, the Los Angeles Lakers have had some surprising things transpire in the early part of the season. The team got off to a slow start and fired head coach Mike Brown only five games into the campaign. Then, surprisingly, when faced with an opportunity to bring in Phil Jackson to replace him, the franchise opted to go with Mike D'Antoni instead.

The same can be said of its players—some surprising things have happened in the early part of the season. Some players have played better than expected; some have played worse. Some are thriving shooting the ball while others are struggling to find their stroke. It has all led to some interesting developments as the season has gotten underway.

Here are the L.A. Lakers' most surprising players of the early season.
