Sixers Nearly All Make The "All Surprise" Team

ESPN's John Hollinger released his list of the biggest surprising performances of the young NBA season. Rather than just pick one Sixer, he just decided to give nearly all of them a shout out.

OK, this is getting ridiculous. Tuesday night the Sixers beat Sacramento by 27 for their fifth 20-plus-point win in nine outings. They rank first in the NBA in offense and defense. Williams very nearly has the top PER among point guards; Hawes and rookie Nikola Vucevic are two of the top seven centers, and Thaddeus Young is the only roadblock to James Harden's Sixth Man Award coronation. Evan Turner nearly had a triple-double Tuesday, and Andre Iguodala is raining jump shots.

I won't belabor the point because I wrote about these guys so much Tuesday, but suffice it to say that if you play for the 76ers and don't have five characters in both your first and last name, you've earned a spot on this list.

Five characters in in both your first and last name? Elton. Brand.
