Remember on Wednesday when we went over the top 10 for 2011 fantasy basketball? We read, then laughed, then cried a little, then snorted after a failed attempt at holding in additional crying, which led to an unfortunate snot bubble, which led to my snickering at your snot bubble.
The average team last year went through 11 different starting rotations. The Lakers alternated between two, the Pistons patchworked 22 different rotations together. With either team, the starting SF carried the most job security.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Pip-pip! Huzzah! Ha-cha-cha! And bully! It’s time to wake grandma up, ask her where she keeps the key to the liquor cabinet, threaten her with permanent relocation to a faraway retirement community if she doesn’t tell you where the key is, get the key, use the key, grab that $9 bottle of champagne and pop that sucker.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been a while since you’ve angrily stared at a basketball roster and wished you could start all over … unless, you’re Dan Gilbert, in which case, not a day has gone by where this wasn’t something you did at least twice.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Remember when Han Solo was thawed from the carbonite freeze? Or when Cameron dropped the shocked-coma act in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?” Or how ’bout when R.P. McMurphy pretended to have been labotomized all to hell (before actually being lobotomized all to hell?) in Cuckoo’s Nest.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Clippers’ “other” top draft pick, Charles Smith, is averaging 18.1 pts/6.1 rbd for the maligned squad in his first three weeks. He’s started every game so far, which is nice.

Week 20 in the NBA lockout brought the bleakest news yet, with the player’s union opting to disband and the owners letting them. Time to celebrate! We’ve illustrated the pattern of players jumping ship since July 1.
Despite a dearth of open roster spots overseas, I’d still expect to see a spike in players freakin’ out and going to Turkey (where most people who freak out end up) in the coming weeks.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Boston’s Reggie Lewis really wasn’t much of a factor last season. He averaged less than 7/2/2 as a rookie. But so far this season, he’s taken on a premiere spot on the bench and has been da bomb for Boston so far this season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
