You see many interesting things on New Year’s Eve, particularly on a train departing from New York. For example, I saw a group of Scottish people, two men, two women, approach a group of college students who had flipped the seats and were using them as footrests.Please, blog, may I have some more?
On Saturday night, Eric Gordon made his season debut in impressive fashion, going for 24 points (5 of 13 FG, 12 of 14 FT), including 2 threes, plus 7 assists and 2 steals. As of early Monday morning, he is only 40% owned in Yahoo!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Spencer Hawes had 20 points, 9 rebounds, an assist, 3 steals and 5 blocks. He is averaging 13/6 over the past 2 weeks. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but his ownership is creeping up to the 50% mark.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve seen enough. Injury prone label be damned, Stephen Curry rises to the second tier of the point guard rankings. I’ve always loved the talent but that ankle injury is frightening (I drafted him in the 2nd round last year…sigh). Through 25 games this year Curry has stayed healthy and hasn’t missed a start.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hopes were that Dirk Nowitzki would be back in action this month following surgery in October, but Dirk has told reporters he does not expect to be back soon, indicating he has “a long way to go.” He said swelling has kept him from returning, although he has avoided any setbacks.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Now that the rust is coming off the season (except for you Steve Nash), we’ll be splitting the Wednesday posts into morning (for recaps) and afternoon (for the tiers). Check out the previous Centers, Forwards, and Guards tiers. This week we’ll jump right into the guards.Please, blog, may I have some more?
One thing I absolutely hate, I mean really despise, is when teams relocate. I think it’s a giant middle finger to fans and a blemish on the legacy of the team. That also leads to bizarre team names, like the Lakers in L.A.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Usually in the mornings you get your daily roundup, but I’m saving the recap for this afternoon so I can roll out the M*A*S*H unit now and give everyone updates on the most anticipated players still nursing injuries (not in any particular order, so pay not attention to the fact I’m leading off with Gerry Henderson).Please, blog, may I have some more?
New this year to the basketball side of Razzball is updated tier rankings throughout the season. Every Wednesday morning I’ll update my tiers on a rotating basis for guards, forwards, and centers (i.e. Guards this week, Forwards next week, etc.) The first run through of tiered rankings may not differ much from my original rankings because there haven’t been many games played.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?
