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?
Upon entrance into the 2010 season, the general consensus was that LeBron James was the NBA’s best player and Kevin Durant was fantasy basketball’s best option. It still appears to be that way by most accounts. It’s an opinion so common it feels like fact.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes trades happen that you’re sure must have taken place because one of the GMs was having trouble with his fantasy team. And yes, of course franchise brass play fantasy basketball.

Asbestos was reportedly raining down from the heavens in Madison Square Garden’s attic and forcing the Magic to miss its second game in a month due to postponement. If that’s not bad jeux-jeux, I don’t know what is. Wait. No, I do.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Stephen Curry‘s not a selfish basketball player. No one ever accused him of being one, but after Wednesday’s season opener in Golden State, it should have smacked everyone in the face like the hook of a Katy Perry song. Curry is going to hand the ball off more often than he will dribble five steps past the halfcourt line and start chuckin’.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kobe Bryant is coming off knee surgery that hasn’t healed, a finger injury that will never heal and a second championship on the heel of the season before. Two bad newses and a good – unless you hate the Lakers. Then reverse it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tracy McGrady Will be a Piston for either a year or until his legs detach from his body and Tayshaun Prince clubs him over the head with them. What? The Celtics ran out of room on their roster for old all-stars with Irish-sounding names?Please, blog, may I have some more?
