At the midway point in the season whom do you think has performed the most admirably? I would like to steer this away from who is the best team and more toward who has surprised you the most or done the most with their situation.

After a bad start out of the gates to the season I am tempted to go with the Clippers.

I actually am surprised at the Celtics.

They are a top team,yes, but their record to date and having missed Rondo and Garnett for a few games, plus big Baby and Shaq, just amazes me.

Outside of that, the Knicks have really made a big improvement.

They are 1 defensive minded/scorer from being a team to worry about.

I can see that. Considering I think everybody over 6'8" has been injured on that team. They are keeping or setting pace with most of the league. Very impressive indeed.
