Outside the NBA Lockout disappearing 16 games and the remaining 66 games being stacked on top of one another as efficiently as a Hell’s Kitchen slum, Ricky Rubio‘s injury strikes me as the saddest turn of the season. Just as the Thunder went from terrible to terrific in three seasons, it appears the same thing is happening in Minnesota.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?
I almost titled this post “C Bud Run, Run Chase, Run” but thought that might make everyone go crosseyed. Also, he didn’t have a great game last night and I’ve had this loaded since Saturday, so I went with the title that suggested rockier times ahead.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There I was: settled in for a long evening of basketball-related entertainment, when all of a sudden my Twitter and my Tumblr and my Facebooks erupted alerting me to not only the announcement of the new Springsteen album in March, but that the first single was already here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ll mention Jordan Crawford a bit later. Like 105 words from now. Depending on the size of your browser, you can probably see his name below. If you’re reading on an iPhone, maybe not. If you’re reading on a Blackberry, I’m pretty sure your law firm would be pissed if they knew you were reading Razzball during deliberations, Poindexter.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Paul Pierce played almost 40 minutes and went 0-for-10 from the field, and 1-for-2 from the line. Forty minutes, bro!?! I get that sometimes players have off nights, but half his shots were from behind the line. Scoot up and maybe make a shot, huh, Paul?Please, blog, may I have some more?
There are three fantasy basketball owners out there. The kind that had Ty Lawson and threw him back into the pool, the kind that hung onto him and the kind that don’t know what a Ty Lawson is. To the first and third groups, I say, you’ve gotten what you most likely deserve.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There gets a point in every crayon box where you just don’t want to bother with unwrapping the paper, sharpening the wax down to a more manageable point and coloring anew. Those damn crayons never came close to being as sharp as they were when they were organized and fresh.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The big news from the weekend is that Glen Davis damn near triple-doubled on Sunday against the Raptors. Wait, that was the XXL news from the weekend. Sorry. I keep my news sizes as confusing as movie theater popcorn sizes. Wait, the medium is the smallest size you can order?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jason Kidd is averaging a career-low in minutes played, which informs the across-the-board decline in all his other stats. For now, the dip isn’t pronounced enough to be too worrisome. The Mavs still take a shizz ton (100 lbs. heavier than a crap load) of jumpers that allow for Kidd to grab long rebounds.Please, blog, may I have some more?
