With the 2011-12 season’s first week grinding to a close, congratulations are in order for the Big Ball Dance League’s One Piece, who sit atop the RCL standings setting the pace for the rest of the us. They don’t lead any one category, but they’re in the top 10 in five of eight stat categories, which is pretty bananas when you think about it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Boston, Dallas, Memphis and the Lakers share one win amongst themselves and 10 losses. So understand me when I tell you that everything – absolutely everything – written here is a complete guess. So it goes when you’re watching basketball as messy as this.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Stephen Curry‘s ankle used up its final sick day of the year, because unlike weak ankles themselves, sick days don’t roll over. (Boom! Nailed it.) Dwyane Wade? His left foot caused an early exit. Then a quarter later, his right foot told his left to stop being such a damn sissy, strap on an extra sock and get back out there.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here’s what you’re likely to hear around the fantasy blogosphere today: You’re likely to read that Norris Cole scored 14 of Miami’s final 24 points. You’re likely to be reminded of Mario Chalmers‘ embarrassing 6 tovs in 19 minutes. And if you read about those two things, you’re probably likely to read about how Cole is Miami’s newest, shiniest toy.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I added Robin Lopez in two of my leagues. I didn’t like doing it, but anytime a guy who was overhyped last year drops 21/7 in 27 reserve minutes, you kind of got to throw away your last pick and take a chance.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I thought it might be fun to look at the best season-opening performances in recent NBA history. So far as I can tell, this list will no in any way help anyone win their 2011-2012 fantasy basketball league, but it’s a fun diversion while we wait for our teams to start their seasons.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s take a momentary break from fake basketball to focus a bit on Razzball’s real basketball predictions for the 2011 season. I’m of two minds about making preseason predictions about the league on a grand scale. If I’m wrong, I’ve voluntarily published my wrongness for anyone to see.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ever wonder how many players have scored 50+ points in a game since Jordan entered the league? No? Really!?! What about the number of 50+ games over the last 27 years? No, again? NEVER? That’s weird. I wonder what you DO wonder about.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I was fortunate enough to be invited to Earth’s most classy and famous expert league – the FakeTeams Hoops Tournament. The league has 14 teams consisting of three FakeTeamers (the hosts of this shindig), two guys from ESPN, one from Canada’s The Basketball Jones, one rep from Give Me the Rock, one from Fox Sports, one from Dime Magazine and fbasketballblog, RotoWorld, Damn Lies and Statistics, Life is Just a Fantasy … Basketball Blog and a partridge in a pear tree (I’m either the partridge or the tree, I’m not sure).Please, blog, may I have some more?
