Elton Brand mollywhopped the Knicks with a 28/5 line and perpetuated my prediction that Brand would have his best season since 2006. And he is. And I’m awesome. And Brand is awesome. And every fantasy team that was able to snap him up in the middle or late rounds of their drafts are all the more awesome for it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It always bugged me that in ‘Do-Re-Mi,’ the hyper-catchy song from The Sound of Music, the ‘La’ portion of the musical scales was just a note to follow ‘So.’ That’s some bullshizz. ‘Do’ is an animal, ‘Re’ is the sunlight, “Me” is you.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I put my thick rubber gloves on and my fisherman’s boots, plugged my nose and strapped on five pairs of goggles like jockeys do on muddy race days. I’m diving into Detroit this morning. Chill out, I’ve had my shots. Greg Monroe, the 7th overall pick in this year’s draft, earned his third straight double-double after John Kuester kept him on the floor for 43 minutes in last night’s loss to the Bulls.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Lamar Odom will have ‘problematic,’ lingering shoulder pain, according to Phil Jackson. I really appreciate when coaches expand on injury announcements by adding color with words like “problematic.” This lets us plebeians differentiate between injuries no one is happy to have from those that serve to improve lives; like that kid in ‘Rookie of the Year’ or Doc Brown’s run-in with the toilet back in 1955.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Indiana’s Brandon Rush tumbled to the floor on Sunday and on the way down slammed into Danilo Gallinari‘s left knee. That’s a mild sprain. It’s also a mild strain on fantasy owners having to decide between Charlie Villanueva or Mickael Pietrus as their replacement for the threes they’ll be missing in the next 2-3 weeks.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What would it take a sane person to grab Tracy McGrady off waivers in a standard-size fantasy league? A month ago, the thought was unthinkable. I’m not sure what a thought is if one cannot think it. When you’re drunk and rambling to your friends at about 2:30 in the morning on New Years Day, discuss it and get back to me.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I spend one afternoon caroling in my neighborhood and lookit what happens: I return to a league that colluded to all swap jerseys and make me nuts. There’s no way, I’m going to be able to remember that a) Hedo Turkoglu is not on the Suns, b) Hedo Turkoglu was ever not on the Magic and c) Vince Carter isn’t on a pitiful D.C.Please, blog, may I have some more?
New Jersey’s stalwart Brook Lopez looks more like a stalled wart so far this season, and nothing improved in the 18+ minutes he played on Wednesday. After shooting .499 in ’09 from the floor, Lopez is writhing around with a .381 FG%.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Look, I’m not going to go nuts here and tell you that Andrea Bargnani is terrible or overrated or any other hyperbolic fluff that clearly isn’t true. Bargs can play. He’s averaging 19 points in 32 minutes per NBA game. That’s something even I can’t do, and I’m great at basketball, according to my rec-league teammates.Please, blog, may I have some more?
With thousands of fantasy teams floating hither and yon, there’s bound to be one out there that started Bogut, Camby, Jeff Green, Brooks, Nelson, Martin, Carter, Delfino and Harris. To that team I ask, can I interest you in fantasy hockey?Please, blog, may I have some more?
