I don't know why people are suprised at the Hornets knowing last year all they'd need is good health to be at least a good team. I think I'm more surprised at Chicago getting off to a rough start.
I don't think people who really pay attention to the NBA are surprised by the Hornets start at all. There is a thread in this forum from this summer with a number of non-Hornet fans calling them a definite playoff team and predicting upwards of 50+ wins. They are, as expected, this years Utah, the team that just barely missed the playoffs despite HUGE health concerns, and over the summer got healthy and made a couple minor upgrades as well.

I think it's too early for us to be calling these teams real surprises yet anyway, we aren't sure which starts are for real and which are just abnormally good/bad stretches of a handful of games out of a long 82 game season.
