With the first week of the NBA campaign now complete, it is time to take a look at the ten biggest surprises thus far in the young season.  

There has been some entertaining results and tantalizing storylines in the NBA's first seven days, as this season proves to be as unpredictable as ever.

These teams and players have surpassed preseason expectations, and have shined throughout week one in the NBA.

Honorable Mention: Paul Millsap – I can't exactly say that his statistics are overwhelmingly surprising, but I don't think many people predicted his play to be this phenomenal.

An injury to Mehmet Okur has opened a starting role for Millsap, one in which he has flourished.  He is averaging 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, and three assists per game, all of which are career highs.

Millsap is also shooting an astounding 63.4% from the field in 33 minutes per contest, numbers that put him near the top of the league.
