I remember watching Reggie Miller at UCLA and being mezmerized. Man, oh man could he shoot. Chants of Reggie! Reggie! Reggie! would reverberate throughout Pauley Pavilion. Then, he got drafted by the Indiana Pacers and the same chant was sung. One of the greatest shooters I’ve ever witnessed. He was a career 39% shooter from downtown. At the zenith, he attempted 6.6 while making 2.8 threeecolas per game. Back then, those were amazing numbers. The game certainly has changed, as Steph Curry leads the league with 11 threeecolas attempted with 5.1 makes per game. What hasn’t changed, though, is the Reggie! Reggie! Reggie! chant, only this time it’s for Reggie Bullock.


Played 43 minutes in an overtime game. Bullock missed five games due to an ankle injury earlier this month. Since returning three games ago, he’s scored 15, 24, and 33 points and shot 4-for-10, 5-for-7, and 7-for-12 from downtown. Did the Pistons go all Steve Austin on him or something? Bullock is a 40% shooter from downtown, but this most recent heater of 55% is something else. He’s been a top 30 player for fantasy over the three-game stretch without contributing much in any other category! Now, the efficiency is obviously going to come in, unless the Pistons truly did turn Bullock into the modern day, six million dollar man. With that said, he’s been getting a ton of open looks because defenses have to sag down on Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond down low. There will be adjustments, so the volume of threeecolas will come back down. On the season, Bullock is averaging 5.6 attempts per game. Until then, enjoy the ride and chant at the top of your lungs, Reggie! Reggie! Reggie!

Here’s what else I saw last night:


Larry Nance Jr.


Got the start again and played 34 minutes. Top 20 player over the past seven games. We are all witnesses. LeBron who?

Jaron Blossomgame


Played 23 minutes. Has now played 23 minutes in back-to-back games. I see Larry Drew did not mess with the substitution settings from the prior game. Not fantasy relevant, but could siphon off minutes from some of the other players. As for his Blossomgame, Jaron can shoot from downtown and grab some boards.

Cedi Osman


The past three games, Osman has shot 6-for-10, 6-for-14, and 6-for-10. Ahhhhhh, the Sign of the Beast! Did he make a deal with the Devil to get his efficiency up? For some reason, if that headline flashed at the bottom of the ESPN ticker, I wouldn’t be shocked. I don’t know what that means. Do I have problems or does that have to do with something of the society that we live in? Fine, I’m the weirdo.

Jordan Clarkson


I know your parents named you Jordan, but don’t you think you’re taking this thing a little too far?

Alec Burks


Played 25 minutes. Burks is shooting 33% from the field since coming to Cleveland. He’s hucking and chucking, and will even contribute in the peripheral categories, but with each passing game, the Cavs are realizing why the Jazz were willing to let him go for Kyle Freaking Korver.

Marvin Williams


Top 5o player over the past six games. I know, crazy. He’s playing over 30 minutes a game and averaging 12.3 points, 2.5 threeecolas, 6.8 boards, 0.8 steals, and 0.7 blocks. Marvin has been playing like he’s starvin’ and needs money for grocery shopping.

Kemba Walker


It was discovered that a certain club was watering down it’s bottles of the Kemba Label. All seems to be good now. Over the past six games, the numbers have been similar to when he was approaching top 10 levels. It’s just been the crappy efficiency that has held him back. Maybe some of the clubs are still watering down the bottles.

Jeremy Lamb


Played a team-high 42 minutes. Lamb is a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad man. Is it a coincidence that lambs are closely related to goats? I don’t believe in coincidences. With that said, he doesn’t provide the D stats and won’t dish out many dimes, but he will grab boards, score points, and drain threeecolas. As a result, he’s more like a top 100 player.

The Spurs spanked the Magic, 129-90 in Orlando. Only one player reached 20 points (LMA) for the Spurs and only four players (Gay, DeRozan, and Forbes) scored in double-figures. Poof. It’s magic. It got so bad that Drew Eubanks played 10 minutes while Jakob Poeltl got 22 minutes of run.

Mohamed Bamba


Got the start because Nikola Vucevic was out (birth of child) and played 26 minutes.

Aaron Gordon


It’s so frustrating watching Gordon play because you can see the ceiling. Yet….he either can’t finish a move or forces things or is out of control or stops being aggressive or doesn’t have a counter for the defense. Aiya, he’s young, though, and I still believe. Would I walk 500 Myles? Hmmm, let me go to the sauna and ponder that question over the weekend.

Noah Vonleh


God trusted Noah. That’s good enough for me. The biblical Noah wasn’t flashy slaying giants with a slingshot. He did the busy work of building an ark and shepherding the animals into it. The NBA Noah also does not slay with his shot. Rather, he does the dirty work of cleaning the glass and protecting the fort. Top 125 player for fantasy.

Kevin Knox


Continues to start and played 36 minutes. Has the fort been built yet? We must protect this treasure, right? My only question is does he play alongside Porzingis and Zion or come off the bench next season?

Enes Kanter


Enes, meet Joel. Joel, meet Enes. Oh, you two have already met and have a history? I have a sneaky suspicion that he doesn’t want to sex Embiid.

Tim Hardaway Jr.


Played 28 minutes in his return from a one-game absence. Dealer! C and E please! And all the Hardaways for the dealers! THJ is 23rd in field goal attempts per game with 17.3. Shooters shoot.

Joel Embiid


Only played 26 minutes because the Sixers punked the Knicks, 131-109.

Ben Simmons


Ben was just messing around.

Or was he? Damn….that ain’t right. Maybe he doesn’t need a J after all. Beep. Boop. Bop. You know who wasn’t messing around last night? The Stocktonator, as it had Simmons as the #5 overall player.

Jimmy Butler


Forget about those days when Butler was a top 15 player. Top 40-ish is more like it. It’s hard to find good help these days.

Landry Shamet


If you need threeecolas and literally nothing else, Shamet is your guy. He played 22 minutes last night and has been averaging a tick under 19 minutes this month. The boy can shoot, no doubt about it.

Deandre Ayton


Played 32 minutes and was instrumental in orchestrating a 111-103 victory in the Gahden. Ayton is tied for 10th in double-dubs! Let’s not forget that he’s still only 20 years old! Top 40 player for fantasy. I’m not sure he will ever develop a shot from downtown (not dismissing it), but if he can improve on the D stats, then top 25 player seems attainable.

Devin Booker


Played a team-high 37 minutes. A nice little one-two punch the Suns have as a foundation in Ayton and Booker. Next fall on TNT. Ayton and Booker. Serving justice one bucket at a time.

Josh Jackson


Played 28 minutes off the bench. Y’all know I’m not a fan of Jackson, as I think he’s a terrible basketball player. With that said, he has been playing 28 minutes a game over the past few weeks and contributing some threeecolas, rebounds, assists, and D stats. The turnovers are high and the field goal percentage is atrocious, but if you cool with that and don’t actually watch the games, he could have some value to your team.

Kelly Oubre Jr.


Played 26 minutes off the bench in his Suns debut. I am also not a fan of Oubre, but compared to Jackson, I’d build a shrine for him. With that said, Oubre can fill the stat sheet. My concern is that his ceiling is capped due to his place on the depth chart and the number of wings that the Suns currently have on the roster.

Kyrie Irving


Top 1o player. If I were a Kyrie owner in fantasy, the earth is a trapezoid for all I care.

Marcus Smart


Don’t be a dummy. Over the past seven games, he’s been a top 50 player.

Aron Baynes fractured his left hand. That should give some minutes to Theis, Ojeleye, and Williams.

Robert Williams


Played 24 minutes. Williams is blocking 6.4 shots per-36 minutes!!!

Bojan Bogdanovic


A 3 & 1/2 D player. Bojan will get his 211 on but refuses to block any shots. Not sure that’s by design. Probably more a limitations thing, but whatever. He’d be a horrible offensive lineman, riot policeman, pop up ad software, or member of a Spartan phalanx. Good thing he only plays basketball and can shoot crazy good. Top 100 player on the strength of 2.1 threeecolas, 16.4 points, and 3.9 boards.

Myles Turner


I survived the 500 Myles.

Victor Oladipo


It sucks that the Pacers are such a deliberate offensive team and play at such a slow pace. Now that I think about it, the pace car at Indy races…..I’m a dummy. Anyways, Oladipo is still getting back into the groove after missing time due to injury. He gonna be alright folks.

Domantas Sabonis


Tied for 18th in double-dubs. He only averages 24-25 minutes per game. Arvydas would be proud. For those of you that don’t know, Arvydas was a freaking beast…

Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka did not play last night. Fred VanVleet and Greg Monroe started in their place. In terms of usage, when Lowry and Ibaka are off the floor, Siakam sees an increase in usage of 33.2, while VanVleet sees an increase of 13.2. Kawhi interestingly sees a decrease of 4.1.

Pascal Siakam


Has been a top 65 player over the past six games. With Jonas Valanciunas out for a while, Siakam could see an uptick in minutes and production, especially since he could play some more small-ball center.

Kawhi Leonard


Beep. I. Am. Not. A. Robot. Must. Convince. The. Humans. Must. Not. Make. Every. Shot. Must. Laugh. Ha. Ha.

Greg Monroe


Played 22 minutes, a season-high. There’s a reason he’s played for four other teams.

Fred VanVleet


Played 31 minutes. A solid backup and isn’t afraid to shoot. Over the past six games, VanVleet has been a top 65 player, as Lowry has missed some games. He can contribute points, threeecolas, boards, dimes, and steals.

Jarrett Allen


Atkinson went to Jarrett!!! Where the blocks, though? It’s tough to trust Allen, as the minutes have been all over the place. The last six games: 31, 20, 15, 28, 16, and 26. With that said, he’s still been a top 60 player over the past seven games. While known as a blocks behemoth, he’s only averaging 1.4 on the season.

Spencer Dinwiddie


Played 32 minutes off the bench. Top 55 player over the past seven games. 24 points, 2.1 threeecolas, 3 boards, 5.6 dimes, and 0.7 steals. Screw HD, SD is making a comeback!

Kris Dunn


Got the start and played 34 minutes. He’s baaaaaack. Don’t expect many threeecolas from Dunn, but points, boards, dimes, and steals should be on the menu.

Bobby Portis


Played 24 minutes off the bench. I got many questions over the past week in regards to Portis. I faded him because I didn’t think he’d get significant minutes. I still believe that, but I forgot that Portis can explode on any night in limited run.

John Wall


Played 39 minutes in a 118-136 spanking. Wall may get torn down sooner rather than later. How can it continue?

Bradley Beal


Top 25 player. This is one deadly accurate BB gun.

Sam Dekker


Played 15 minutes off the bench. Just have to give Dekker a shout out because he did play well and made some very nice moves. Someone to keep an eye on, I suppose. I wouldn’t sweat too much over it, though. Outsource the work for a $1.

PJ Tucker


When you ride a train, you admire the scenery, glance at the weirdos, or try to not fart while others are infringing upon your personal space. What you don’t do is think about how the tracks were laid out? That’s Tucker from a fantasy perspective. He does the dirty work.

Clint Capela


Over the past seven games, Capela has been a top 75 player. He makes us dance with points, boards, and D stats, but the lack of threeecolas, no dimes, and horrendous free throw shooting is like a posse of cats all scratching their nails on the blackboard at the same time.

Chris Paul


In comparison to last season, when Paul was a top 10 player, he’s playing more minutes, but the points, threeecolas, rebounds, and field goal percentage are all down. The assists, steals, and turnovers are up, though. As long as he stays healthy, I think Paul can make a run at top 10 status again, especially as the Rockets gel and figure out things.

James Harden


Are you not entertained? All y’all should be Harden excited, as he’s a top 3 player on the season and has been the #1 player over the past four games.

Anthony Davis


Played 29 minutes because…..He got hurt. Shocker. At least he returned. In the past, any little nick and he’d be ghost for the rest of the game. I like this tougher version of Davis.

Darius Miller


Got the start and played 37 minutes. Strictly a threeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeecola specialist. Miller is a career 39% shooter from downtown.

Solomon Hill


Got the start because Julius Randle (ankle) and Nikola Mirotic (ankle) were both out and played 32 minutes. Strictly a boards guy.

Jrue Holiday


It’s always the season to be jolly with this Holiday. Top 20 player on the season.

Jahlil Okafor


Played 13 minutes. Throw him back in!

Giannis Antetokounmpo


Yawn. Now remember when I said that Budenholzer should implement some Olympic handball plays for G? Here’s visual representation of why….

G would break Steph Curry’s record for threeecolas.

Khris Middleton


Over the last six games, Middleton has been the #249 player, primarily because he’s been shooting 32% from the field. All the other peripheral categories have remained the same. He’s the ultimate buy-low player for me, as I think he’s more like a top 30-40 player.

DJ Wilson


Played 24 minutes off the bench. Wilson played 26 minutes the prior game. Is this the start of a trend? I’d keep an eye on DJ, as he can board, block, and shoot from downtown. In this offense with G as the centerpiece, there would be plenty of open looks to be had.

George Hill


Played 29 minutes. The minutes have been all over the place since coming over to Milwaukee, but George is not over the Hill just yet. He does have the occasional ceiling game. I’d keep an eye on his minutes.

Blake Griffin


Game went to OT, so Griffin played 42 minutes. I’m skeptical on the block, though. Did he accidentally raise his arms up and someone just threw the ball into his hand and the official scorer considered that a block? Only logical conclusion.

Andre Drummond


Just another Dre Day.

Robert Covington


And it wasn’t even the Lord’s Day! Since arriving in Minnesota, Lord Covington has been a gracious host, as he’s been giving and rarely taking away.

Karl-Anthony Towns



Derrick Rose


Got the start because Jeff Teague was out (ankle) and played 38 minutes. Poison had a song named Every Rose Has It’s Thorn. They obviously never ran into 2018 Derrick Rose.

Dario Saric


Mario with the D continues to come off the bench, but is getting more playing time than Taj Gibson. Last night, the minutes distribution was 32 to 22 in favor of Mario with the D. We all know Thibs loves Taj, I’m thinking that Thibs’ kids or grandkids love playing Mario Kart and keep hounding him to play Mario with the D. Do you have a better suggestion?

Josh Okogie


Played 31 minutes. Played 28 minutes the prior game, which was a blowout. Last night was a tightly contested affair. We know about Okogie’s freakish athleticism. Keep an eye on the minutes going forward. There could be something here. Or not. We’ll soon find out.

Draymond Green


He needs to shoot the ball. The decrease in points and threeecolas are the main reasons for the drop in value. He’s also blocking fewer shots.

Kevin Durant


Yeah yeah. He’s good.

Stephen Curry


Yeah yeah. He’s good too. Wait, their on the same team? Who the hell allowed that to happen?

Joe Ingles


Of course he’s playing well around this time. Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg.

Rudy Gobert


Ricky Rubio


You need assists that bad? Don’t worry, after you drop him he will put up a 30/15 game.

Jae Crowder


Played 31 minutes. Over the past three games, he’s averaged 29.9 minutes, 13.7 points, 3.3 threeecolas, 8.3 boards, 1 dime, and 1 steal per game. That production has been top 50 good. Does it continue? No idea, but it’s definitely within in the range of outcomes as he was a top 50 player twice while in Boston.

Kyle Korver


Played 20 minutes. So, he’s not just the token white guy? Or is he? If you really need threeecolas then…..naw, don’t do it to yourself.

Kyle Anderson


Okay Mr. Stat Sheet Stuffer. Over the last seven games, he’s been a top 70 player. Don’t expect any threeecolas, but Mr. Anderson will contribute in all the other cats.

Mike Conley


Top 25 player. Grit and Grind baby!

Damian Lillard


Led the team in minutes, shot attempts, threeecolas….let me save myself some time. Led the team in everything but rebounds.

Zach Collins


Played 26 minutes. I like Collins a lot, as he’s athletic and agile for a man his size. Plus, he has the range to shoot from downtown. With that said, the 26 minutes were the most he’s received since way back in early November. Me thinks it was more a matchup thing with Memphis.

Meyers Leonard


Played 27 minutes. Copy and paste what I wrote in the Collins blurb. Actually, I have something easier for you to do. Just scroll up and re-read it.

Paul George


By George! I was kidding the other day when I said this was PG’s team. Now, I’m not.

Steven Adams


First 20/20 game for Adams. Hey! You popped your cherry! When the aliens come, I want Adams front and center on the welcoming party.

Russell Westbrook


Three straight triple-dubs. Did I say this was PG’s team? Just messing around.

De’Aaron Fox


Over the past eight games, Fox has been the #11 player. Vivek is crazy like a Fox!

Buddy Hield


Vivek!!! I shall name my next born Vivek. I better go snip the sacks ASAP. Never ever fade a self-made billionaire. Class dismissed. Buddy has been a top 20 player over the past eight games.
