When you’re The Duchess K Middleton, you don’t go on scrubby vacations. None of that beach hotel with bratty kids running around and sand in the halls, none of those rickety cruise ships where the power goes out and you have to poo in plastic bags… I’m talking huge! Like Disneyland completely rented out only for the family! Sledding down glaciers in Antarctica! Hanging out with baller celebs at The Razzball Basketball Office!
As is always the case, our commenters are absolute gold. Joe mentioned the trend of Khris Middleton‘s poor play with Jason Kidd the coach, and I also ran with it looking at the numbers in a FantasyPros piece on second-half expectations. Now, it’s not really that The Duchess is playing that poor, but ROS rankers had him 36th overall. Seemed a little rich – not quite Kate Middleton rich – but like, Queen Latifah rich. Using the ol’ copy-and-paste: “Since Jan. 26, Middleton has shot only 33% from the field with a 3.6:3.6 AST:TO ratio (I guess I could’ve simplified that to 1:1!) in 7 games. Given, it’s a pretty small sample, but in the 17 games immediately prior to when Kidd was out, Middleton shot 50% with a 5.0:2.5 AST:TO ratio (I mean 2:1!). And then the chunk at the beginning of the season until Kidd’s hip gave out, dimes were at 3.4 and he shot 39.9%.” I agree it could be statistical noise, but Kidd has had several “are you effing KIDDing me?!” moments with his line-ups. Luckily The Duchess ended the first half on a high note, going 27/6/9/5/0 with only 2 TO and shooting 9-17. Kidd must’ve just been not paying attention! Too busy rubbing his bald head like foreplay with Mr. Clean. It’s a great finale to an otherwise rough February, and maybe It’s Much Ado About Nothing. Which just seems British, I dunno… And you wanna know who else is heading into this ASB strong?! ME! And well, the NBA by only having two games… So a slightly shorter Daily Notes, since we’re all ready to actually pay our families some attention with the NBA off until next Thursday (that is, except for the All-Star events!). Here’s what else went down last night in Fantasy Hoops action:Please, blog, may I have some more?
