“The Bearded One” James Harden remains the story in the young NBA season as he put up 45 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists in Atlanta last night to lead the Rockets to their second win. Harden shot 14-19 from the floor and hit 2 3-pointers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The NBA is BACK baby and so are the daily notes. This morning, fantasy owners were greeted by their players with a trick or treat. Oh LeBron James (26/10/3/2, 2 3PM), a snickers bar! Thank you Rajon Rondo (20/7/14, 9-14 FG), I love butterfingers! Kyrie Irving (29/6/3/0/1, 3 3PM), I can take two?!! Uh Steve Nash (7/2/4/0/1, 1 3PM), a f*cking apple? Are you joking me? Don’t you know parents make you throw shit like that away? WTF, and besides who wants an apple?! Sigh. In case you didn’t hear the general panic from California, the Lakers lost last night to the Dirkless Mavs. It’s OK though, in the spirit of Halloween they let the Bobcats dress up as Lakers and let them play. Such nice guys. The important thing to remember about the first week or two is don’t overreact/panic. Don’t suddenly trade Nash or give up on Bradley Beal (8/3/3/1, 2 3PM). There were only 3 games last night but here’s the other fantasy relevant news from the NBA…
But first, we have yet another Razzball Commenter League open for those of you who really procrastinate!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?
Rasheed Wallace. Yep, I dared team Ballin Like Smush to do it and he is now the proud owner of ‘Sheed for $1 (until waivers on Thursday kicks in at least). This, in a way, shows the beauty of an auction. You can start nominating the top guys like LeBron James or try to squeeze a sleeper like Aaron Brooks past the other owners who aren’t sure how to spend just yet. In this post, I’m going to go over the draft from Monday, explain my strategy, and what I thought the steals and reaches were. Here are the results from the draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Heyyyyyy sexy Bron… Op, Op, Op….Oppa Auction Style. Want to find proper punishments for people that miss the draft? Want to really show how much knowledge of basketball you have? Want to have a better than 1 out of 10 chance to get LeBron James?!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?
Here it is, friends, the big kahuna. It’s like when your friends sit around and say, “what are your top 30 Arnold Schwarzenegger movies?” Only instead of that, it’s me telling you the top 100 basketball players for fantasy basketball purposes. Now this is going to shock you, but I would not really go by this list during my draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The chatter is loud over the NFL scab referees screwing up games. You know what I say? Forget football and come enjoy basketball. We have thrills, spills, and spine tingling chills. David Stern is possibly the least offensive out of the big four’s commissioners, arguably, theoretically.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As the 2011 fantasy basketball season recedes farther back than LeBron’s hairline and teams like the Bobcats and Warriors feel like dirty puns our uncle told us before he went off to jail, let us look back fondly on the little guys – the point guards – who in this case are literally the little guys, which I can say honestly because neither Baron Davis nor Raymond Felton made the cut this year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, here we are fantasy baskethoopers (<– my mentally ill uncle’s term, often sputtered out in between foul-language rants about the garbage man); the final day of your fantasy basketball season (unless you’re in a playoff format in which you did not make the finals.Please, blog, may I have some more?
