That title is pathetic. But so am I, juggling Christmas shopping, and my obligation to the Razzball faithful. This Article will be the equivalent of giving everyone on my list 25 dollar home depot gift cards as Christmas gifts, you’ll smile uncomfortably, and mutter “thanks, you shouldn’t have.”, or some such apathetic reply after finishing it. One day I’m gonna have the balls to prank my wife with that move, and see how long she can keep “the spirit of the season is to give, not receive” farce going before I get whacked with a candlestick. But it was no prank to see Kemba Walker ice the Raptors in OT, one night after Damian Lillard did the same thing to the Cavs. These young guns sure are fun to watch (sorry Javaris, too soon?), and even more fun if they’re on your fantasy team! let’s take a look at the some of the other pistols in the arsenal:
Beno Udrih, PG
Bubbly, bubbly, bubbly Eno! Most of you are too young to remember that commercial, ran in the 80′s, but it fit too well not to reference. A surefire stomach relief, though, for those of you desperate for PG help. In Knickerbocker-land, he is the last PG standing, and is only owned in 6% of leagues right now. He got 21/4/5/2/0 with 5 3pts and 1 turnover. It’s only one game, but that is impressive. Go ahead. It’s Christmas, treat yourself.
Brandan Wright PF, C
Wright starting off the blocks with a bang, scoring 19/6/1/0/0, but he’s a giant, so he can’t sprint, and in his next game, he only got 4/2/0/0/3. 19 points isn’t something one should expect from him, but the healthy serving of blocks is a delight. He won’t hurt your percentages, and he only got 32 minutes over 2 games, that’s sure to increase. And 24% owned, so have a block party!
Xavier Henry SG
It is doom and gloom in Laker land. Kobe Bryant out for 6 weeks, Steve Nash out for at least a month, Steve Blake out indefinitely, and Jordan Farmar out for at least another week. This all translates to Xavier getting the start at point in the short term. A speculative add here might be interesting.
Wesley Johnson SG, SF
Kobe’s gone, we covered that, which means more minutes. He has looked good already this year in spurts, another cat to watch.
Kemba Walker PG
I actually like what he’s doing right now, which is why if you’re thinking of making a move, I can’t see a time when his value will be higher. He was a straight assassin against the Raptors, and has a great run of a few games, so include him in an offer for Lillard, or even CP3.
Kobe Bryant SG
I don’t know what you’re gonna get for him, but if you’re like me, I can’t stomach holding him for another 6 weeks, to only have him come back rusty. Again. I may even drop him. Mamba. You used to be so beautiful, what happened?
That’s all I have time for, boys and girls. For those of you who celebrate, Have a very Merry Christmas! And for you other lot, enjoy the downtime. Take in a movie, maybe? That Keanu samurai one looks dope.
