Did you know that a Posey is also known as a Nosegay? That’s weird, right? Historically, nosegay means something you hang around your nostrils (you know, to keep out the stench of the dead). Today, saying the word nosegay would make people irrationally angry, so you probably shouldn’t say it. Tony Parker fans may be angry right now, too, as the fantasy stud is going to miss approximately 3-5 weeks after spraining his left ankle. He was one of the league’s top assisters, and brother, you’re not going to be able to find a replacement off waivers to cover his stats. Kirk Hinrich was seen wearing a walking boot, so he’s out. Maybe Andre Miller is still available in your league. He’s good for 11 ppg and 6 apg. It’s something. If redraft roto leagues, you may as well consider dropping him outright.

Where was I? Oh, Surviving Christmas  is a much better holiday movie than you would expect, and is worth watching if it comes on TV in 9-10 months. Just store that in your head. If you haven’t see The Town, it’s also enjoyable. Wait, is this the basketball blog? I thought we were talking about movies. Hmmm, well, let’s talk about Andrew BogutBogut’s MRI came back and showed a protruding disc in his back. He has been ruled out indefinitely and will not travel with the team. Some of you may remember I had a minor herniated disc back in September, and it took me a few weeks to recover from, derailing my basketball career even further. Bogut is clearly a world class athlete while I get winded getting up from the toilet, but still, back pain is back pain, and Bogut has to wipe the same way the rest of us do. All of you that were so happy to grab Bogut may have to wait a couple of weeks to begin savoring his production again.

Morning Razzball Nation!

If you missed it yesterday in my inaugural post breaking down the NBA Trade Deadline, I’m your new Razzball Basketball chief editor and fantasy basketball overlord.  Hope I can bring ya the goods!

If you missed the games last night, and lets be honest, they weren’t exactly much-watch TV, you missed the Heat trounce the Bulls 86-67 and the Spurs romp the Clippers 116-90.  67 Chicago?  Two more and and Lil Wayne would’ve found his dreads on Chris Bosh’s wife’s legs.
