It’s the playoffs, people. That time of the year where all your hard work could either pay off or come crashing down all over your face with the weight of a thousand Shaquille O’Neals. That time of year where your forsake family, friends and all other personal relationships, slaving over your lineup each and every day just for the satisfaction of winning the moderate $80 league you have going with your buddies from college.Please, blog, may I have some more?
On Wednesday, Hornets coach Monty Williams said he “Wouldn’t be surprised to come out here one day this week and say Eric Gordon is playing tonight.” He also said he wouldn’t be surprised to see Gordon reinjure his knee in practice.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Alonzo Gee will never be good enough for Cleveland. It doesn’t matter what he does. He could lead the NBA in scoring. He could win the MVP award. He could lead the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals. He could run a successful mayoral campaign and revive the city’s economy.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I spent some time away from the computer yesterday. I needed a little me time, a little time for Josh to be Josh. So I got my favorite sandwich from Subway. Curled up by the fire with a glass of wine and my favorite John Grisham novel.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I like to think that once a year, people like Mike Scioscia, Mike Shanahan and Drew Brees get together at some dive bar in Montana and discuss how best to completely ruin the lives of fantasy owners across all sports. Want to have a closer by committee?Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week’s Buy/Sell (or Buy Seal, if you’re anyone but Heidi Klum) comes from James [Redacted]. As I’m not sure if James [Redacted] wants his entire name out there for people to know, we’ll just call him James [Redacted], or if you’re feeling particularly saucy, let’s see if we can’t get RedJam to stick.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Before we get going, I just want to take a moment to thank Grey and Adam for giving me this opportunity to contribute to the site. This is my first post for Razzball and if you enjoy what I bring, and want to stick a feather in my fedora, then go ahead and do so in the comments.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Our first Buy/Sell of the season comes to from our very own Josh Vitale from the football side of the site. I say “our very own” because he’s one of us, but not like in the in-bred sense of “us.” Anyway, I deleted all the references to “tight ends,” “putting it through the uprights,” and “foot ‘n’ inches” because I thought he might have been confusing the two sports.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I discussed Thaddeus Young earlier today. It was awesome! You shoulda been there! You were? Well, then no wonder you don’t remember what I said. That’s how awesome it was. It erased your brain! I’ll make this blurb a little less awesome so you’ll remember it long enough to add Young to your team.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Marvin Williams strung together a trio of decent games this week (15/8 while shooting .586 from the field) and now Joe Johnson is recovering from having ‘loose bodies’ in his elbow. It’s not as bad as Robert Mapplethorpe’s collection of elbows in loose bodies, but still.Please, blog, may I have some more?
