Surprises or Just as Expected?

KirhatKirhat PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
Having SMB on top of the standings is not a surprise at all considering the superstars that they have hired using the large coffer at their disposal. What was surprising is that it took them many years to reach this level.

Alaska Aces, TnT and Purefoods Hotdogs are considered powerful contenders and challengers to the dominance of SMB is not surprising at all. Just like SMB, they have very formidable and intimidating line-up that would be the envy of many teams.

What is surprising is that SLR and Ginebra, despite not having many superstars or was plagued with injuries, are giving the top teams a strong challenge and are posing a threat to their title bids.

Having Rico M leading the ROOKIES is not surprising at all after Aguilar decided to pursue his bid with SMART-Gilas. However, having Josh Urbiztondo at second is a BIG surprise since this player was not drafted by any teams.

Any other surprises?
