Indiana’s Brandon Rush tumbled to the floor on Sunday and on the way down slammed into Danilo Gallinari‘s left knee. That’s a mild sprain. It’s also a mild strain on fantasy owners having to decide between Charlie Villanueva or Mickael Pietrus as their replacement for the threes they’ll be missing in the next 2-3 weeks.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ain’t no telling when Brandon Roy will return this season, but the Blazers announced it won’t be anytime soon. My guess is, if the franchise doesn’t shut him down for good, they’re only not doing so in case they need him to make a Willis Reed-like return at some desperate time late in the season, long after owners dropped him from their rosters.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The biggest bust in the NBA that no one is talking about has got to be Tim Duncan. Well, no. Technically, Boris Diaw‘s bust is the biggest one no one is talking about, but that’s just because he’s sensitive about it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s a good bet that I’m talking to deep leaguers if I dedicate this much space to a guy who’s only started in four games, and averaging 23 minutes this season on a Bucks team that seems to consist of Brandon Jennings, Andrew Bogut and, like, 10 6-foot-9 guys who do everything and nothing simultaneously.Please, blog, may I have some more?
How do you pronounce Shawne Williams‘ first name? Is he going to add an apostrophe after a few more games like Stoudemire? Make it Shawn’e? Or is it pronounced “Shawn-E?” Weren’t the Shawnee an American Indian tribe wiped out by smallpox in the mid-1800s?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Most of my readers are from the South. I can say that, because no matter where you are, you’re probably not in the northernmost portion of the globe. Therefore, you’re south of something. And my understanding of Southerners is that they all watched ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ un-ironically.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?
Old men should also ‘go Wes.’ Or young women. Or old women. Just kidding. Old women don’t want anything to do with fantasy sports. But the point is that anyone who does do fantasy basketball should have already grabbed Wes Matthews after his game-winning 30-point, .579-shooting night.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?
All preseason, Mike D’Antoni and the Knicks left a shroud of mystery surrounding the two-spot the likes of which ain’t been seen since Carmen Sandiego was in Budapest, no Algiers, no Greenland. All good things like the shooting guard mystery and Rocapella must come to an end.Please, blog, may I have some more?
