A lot of exciting things are happening in the NBA right now. The Hawks are dominating the East while the Warriors are dominating the West. All-Star MVP Russell Westbrook is playing out of his mind, dropping triple-doubles on the daily. We have seen a handful of season-ending injuries to franchise-caliber players, including Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant, and Carmelo Anthony. A dad is even coaching his son in Las Angeles. There have been some interesting headlines taking over the National Basketball Association this season, but did you see them coming? We certainly didn’t.

Jesus Shuttlesworth really not making an epic NBA comeback? J.R. Smith is actually playing for a championship contender. Who would have thought that at the beginning of the season? I know for a fact I am copping a throwback KG T’Wolves jersey. That 1999 Timberwolves team was one of my favorites of all time. Scroll through and explore 10 Things Happening in the NBA Right Now That You Never Saw Coming.
