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?

You gotta have a draft routine; the things you do or eat or wear to ensure you’re in the best possible zone while picking players that you will spend the next seven, er, five months swearing at. What do you mean LaMarcus Aldridge might miss the start of the season?Please, blog, may I have some more?
It can’t be that hard to find a diamond the size of a ping-pong ball, right?

We’ve run through the fantasy basketball rankings for each position – well, you ran through them. I sprinted for a bit, started feeling woozy, then threw up all over my slacks. I don’t know why I wore slacks to a sprint, but I made sure to wear bicycling shorts to today’s 2011 fantasy basketball top 100.Please, blog, may I have some more?
