Question Most impressive player after 10 games?

Just curious to see what everyone thinks.

There are a slew of players who have been tearing it up... some expected... some unexpected.... so who has impressed you most so far?

That Hayes kid out of Houston.

I knew he was a good player, but he's had some monster games.

maybe you're talking about Landry
Hayes is averaging 6/8, Landry 15.5/6

I'm impressed with Landry and thats why I drafted him on my fantasy team

Oops. Missed Jennings and I didn't even think about Hayes. I should've put an "other" option I guess. Maybe a Mod can add that.

Chris Bosh:
6th in scoring w/ 26.4PPG
2nd in rebounding w/ 11.8REB
49.7% from the field.

Those three stats alone should have his name in the conversation. Tough choice at this point though.

Jennings has been the biggest surprise but not the best league wide.

Gonna stay away from the "homer" vote even though Bosh deserves it.

I think that I'm going to go with Noah.

For a guy that wasn't supposed to be anywhere as good as Oden or even his Florida teammate Horford, he's been playing some GREAT ball.

Looks like an early candidate for DPOTY so far.

Nash. He just kills it - still.

I like what Carmelo is doing as well.

I hope those two guys make things too hard for the Lakers this year.

The Bosh kid isn't doing bad. I'm actually looking for better things yet as the team around him gels more. And that will happen right?

Jeez... I had no idea that Jennings was avging 25/gm. I should've def. put him in.

I'm curious to see how the shots will go around once Redd comes back.

@ LX... yep, Nash has been awesome. But I'm wondering now if it's just the lack of Shaq's big ass clogging the lane that's rejuvenated his game more than anything else.

Has to be Nash, everyone thought phoenix and his career was going down and boom. Right now he is a top 5 player in the NBA.

Nash was my 2nd choice. he's awesome.

I hope Bosh keeps this up so that near the end of the season we'll get to hear MVP chants in the ACC !!!

Everyone was wrong.

I still think that they dismantled that PHX team (Nash, Amare/Marion) too soon.

All they needed to do was add one or two solid defensive players and they could have been a threat for a few more years.

Nash plays the game like Stockton did. More brains than athleticism. And that can extend your career when all's said & done.

How could it not be Nash? Look at where his team is. If the Raps were producing more W's I might give Bosh a look but fuck, Nash is just killing it. He's playing out of his mind.

The thing I love about Stevie is that he can be the most dominating player on the floor without scoring.

does his defense count towards his dominance?

The thing to remember though is that PHX has had most of it's players there for a few seasons.. even JRich.

The Raps have NINE new players... tough to gel right away and play at that level. I think that we'll get there though.

I've been out of the country and seen very little games, but Kobe, Nash, Wade, Melo appear to be very impressive so far. Lebron and Paul are obviously great as always too

I'm also going to give a shoutout to Dirk, who's back above 26ppg and appears to have stepped it up on defense. His block rate is literally double what it's been most of his career, and he's producing steals a near career high as well. Dirk actually leads the league in defensive win shares
