One of the frequent names that comes up in Razzball comments is Luis Scola. His 13 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists line is fairly on par with the season (12.7/7.0/1.7) and his career (14.4/7.7/1.9). He has 5 years in the NBA and is 32 years old.

For those of you following my Nikola Vucevic saga (for some reason), I was able to reclaim him off waivers. It took $5 of my $11 waiver wire dollars, but it was worth it, as I found out I beat out at least one other claim.

With a dazzling 17 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal and 1 block, Nicolas Batum showed why he is the darling of the fantasy community. He also seems to be out of his recent “funk,” averaging 19 1/2 points, 10 boards and 1 1/2 blocks in the past 2 games.

Orlando may contain the happiest place on earth (a meth den a mile from Interstate 4), but for the Magic, the season has been a little less than magical. Nevertheless, fans took some joy last night when the team flew into L.A.

Kris Humphries (3/4/0 with 2 blocks) fouled Kevin Garnett (16/10/1) somewhat hard (his flopping made it look worse than it was).

One thing I absolutely hate, I mean really despise, is when teams relocate. I think it’s a giant middle finger to fans and a blemish on the legacy of the team. That also leads to bizarre team names, like the Lakers in L.A.

As mentioned earlier today, Amar’e Stoudemire will be back whenever he gets back. There is no time table for his return. I don’t expect to see him start appearing on the waiver wire, although in shallow leagues there’s no reason to have him on your roster.

It’s that time of year when everything is predictable. You’ll hear that Adam Sandler song as the token musical nod to Chanukah amidst an endless sea of long dead crooners and sentimal pop. Plastic nativities with blinking lights will adorn lawns like stars dotting the night sky.

The Pacers had an incredible night. Paul George scored 37 points, including 9 from downtown – yes, that’s NINE – and threw in 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Roy Hibbert was unimpressed with George’s performance, and decided to go with a very unusual triple double.

Arguably, steals are the most difficult stat to obtain. You’d think solid defense would lead to more takeaway opportunities, but this is a shooting league, so maybe there is no solid defense. Anyway, this is a look at the seven (eligible) players with the best steals ratios with under 50% ownership.
