It’s time to start calculating whether eight weeks of the best free agent left in your league pool is better than five weeks of Manu Ginobili, ’cause that looks to be the sitch, mes amis. That’s assuming those five weeks are top-notch Manu and I’m not getting that kind of vibe.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Manu Ginobili broke his shooting hand and may be out as many as six weeks. Groin punch! If you drafted him, his penchant for injury is why you hesitated before doing so. And don’t act like you didn’t hesitate. You were well warned.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?
With the top 20, top 10, top 20 PG and top 20 SG for 2011 fantasy basketball in the can, it’s time to gander at the 20 best fantasy swingmen (“fantasy swingmen” sounds naughty) for 2011. Not be spoil things, but the two best players in basketball play the three-spot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After averaging 11.1 ppg on .385 shooting from the floor in February and March, Jamal Crawford is averaging 18.3 ppg on .500 shooting from the floor so far in April. Owners must not remember anything past April Fool’s Day when they get to negotiatin’ new deals.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Skiles said he’d only play Michael Redd single-digit minutes to work Redd into the swing of things. Then he played him more than 15 in his first game of the season because he realized this is Milwaukee and there is no swing.Please, blog, may I have some more?
(Today’s post title is for all you connoisseurs of niche comedians from the ’80s.) Stephen Jackson is hobbled, but played anyway. If you have another option, go with it, because Jackson ran up and down the court last night like Pacino at the end of ‘Dick Tracy.’ (Deep cut!) The word out of Northc’alina is that if the Bobcats lost to the Pacers (effectively wiping away their playoff hopes), Stack Jacks would be shut down for the season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Who knew that Kevin Martin would drain 34 points and sink a perfect 18-for-18 from the line and he wouldn’t even have the most impressive line on his own team? Kyle Lowry triple-doubled in his first career game last night (28/10/11, with three treys and three steals) and has come on this season like gangbusters.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Houston’s Kyle Lowry dropped seven threes last night, making it 24 bombs in six games. That’s a league-high, the current franchise best and a wicked, wicked third-tier keeper option for your team come the fall. Lowry is ranked 16th in the league in assists and 15th in the league in steals per game, which ain’t too shabby considering he was just a seagull on the submarine’s radar during the preseason and was drafted in fewer than 25 percent of this season’s drafts.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Perennial first-rounder Chris Paul slammed his noggin yesterday, hit the ground with a stillness that silences crazed stadiums, was carted off the court amid extended hush and finally gave a thumbs up to signify … that his hand wasn’t paralyzed, I guess.Please, blog, may I have some more?
