Pau Gasol and the Lakers have had a train wreck of a season so far. Pau is seeing nearly all his numbers being below career average (12.6/8.9/3.5/0.5/1.2 with 42% FG and 76% FT) and having “knee tendinitis” to boot. As such, I had to move him down in the tiers because you can’t be a Victoria’s Secret model with those type of numbers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Phoenix Suns have arguably the least exciting line up in the NBA on paper, but that’s not to say these nobodies, err, “role players” aren’t without some fantasy value. We’re talking door buster deals, ladies and gents! Major fantasy bargains!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As I mentioned the past couple weeks, every Wednesday I will release tiers for G/F/C in rotating fashion. Here’s the original tiers, updated Guard tiers, and last week’s Forward tiers. Starting next week, I’ll split this into a morning and afternoon post (morning for recap and afternoon for tiers) to better explain the movement taking place.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Greg Monroe had an outstanding rebounding performance, snagging 18 (5 offensive) boards to accompany his 19 points, 6 assists and 1 block. You can forgive the 6 turnovers, because he’s had double digit rebounds in five of his past six games.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I considered leading with Greg Monroe and his triple double (and in some ways, I just did), but I decided to comment about Jrue Holiday. He has been off to a great start this season, and last night he put up 14 points, 5 rebounds, 12 assists and a block.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ask and ye shall receive (unless it’s money, I’m broke). If you see anyone I missed or guys that you think should be included (I did NOT miss Hasheem Thabeet), shout it out in the comments. I’ll tell you which tier I’d put em in or why I did not/would not include them.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Newspapers used to have evening editions, so rub some black ink on your fingers and let’s pretend it’s the old days. Razzball has to break out a special edition to celebrate Robin Lopez, who played 33 minutes and scored 18 points on 8-12 shooting, with 13 rebounds (4 offensive), 2 assists, 3 blocks.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Preseason games started this weekend with some of the NBA’s best taking on International teams overseas and at home. I know, it is crazy exciting. In a way it is the first look fantasy owners will get of many possible players to draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
