The 10 biggest shockers from the first quarter of the NBA season have run the gamut. 

Five games in, a coach was already fired.

At the quarter turn, the same team that fired him continues to struggle.

There is also an unexpected leader in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, the defending champs out West continue to roll despite major changes.

The front-runner for Rookie of the Year is from a school that most wouldn't recognize. The worst team in the league won a game that most never thought they could win.  

An All-Star center injured himself while bowling. A 36-year-old power forward is in the midst of a renaissance.

All this and more as we look back at the 10 biggest shockers this season, in no particular order.
