I loved the Chappelle Show. My favorite episode was The Racial Draft, but right behind was Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories: Rick James. When he first met James, Charlie saw an “orange……auro” around him, as if he were some transcendental god. After getting to know him a bit, he realized that James was “mad niggerish.” He would “walk up to any chick and lick the whole side of their face” then yell, “I’m Rick James, bitch!” I think Rick and LeBron James are the same person, except for the whole “licking the whole side of the face” thing, but…..I don’t know what LeBron is into. Anyways, LeBron has been a trancendental figure in the sport of basketball since he was in high school. He’s a savant on the court, and polished and refined off the court, but when it comes down to it, he don’t take any shit. Last night, he messed around.
The triple-dub was his 12th of the season. I’m LeBron James, bitch! But, it doesn’t end there. For the month of February (11 games), he AVERAGED a triple-dub: 26.6 points, 10.3 boards, and 10.4 dimes. I’m LeBron James, bitch! But, it doesn’t end there. With last night’s performance, LeBron became the FIRST player in NBA HISTORY to score 30,000 points, dish out 8,000 dimes, and grab 8,000 rebounds. I’m LeBron James, bitch!
Here’s what else I saw last night:

Rudy has been hard at work in the lab. His latest creation? DAILY LINEUPS PAGE. So good. So smooth. So helpful. He decided to go with the Sonny Bono red tint, while I prefer the blue tint. What say you?
25 minutes, 2 points, and 1-of-7 shooting. Those were the numbers from the prior game that Hill played. Which way did he go, George? Which way did he go? There’s going to be inconsistency with George, but he has the ability to do what he did last night. If you are planting your flag on this Hill, just remember to pack your sleeping bag, as there will be many lonely nights.
Larry Nance Jr.:
Played 26 minutes. An encouraging sign for Nance was that he closed out the game in crunch time. Now, it was the Nets, but that’s not his fault.
Played 31 minutes and was also out there down the stretch. Danger always lurks when venturing into the Hood, but no risk….no reward.
Played 25 minutes. This is how I view Korver. Imagine you’re single. If you actually are, then great. This could actually be life-changing for you. Just ask every hot girl out. More than likely, you’re going to strike out, but every once in while, you’ll run into one that says yes. She may have just broken up with her boyfriend, she could be a crazy psycho, or she could be blind. Whatever the case may be, she said yes. And that’s all that matters. You want to shoot for upside. Now, for fantasy, the situation sucks, but for life? You want a lotto ticket that pays out $5? If you hit, you want to hit big! Am I right? Or am I right? Now, get out there and do your thing and forget that I ever wrote a blurb about Kyle freaking Korver.
Played 32 minutes. In February, 14 points, 6.4 boards, 2.4 dimes, 12.3 shot attempts with 6.2 from downtown, and 33 minutes per game. That ain’t bad.
With Russell back, the scoring has been down, but the dimes have picked up. He still has value, but the access to the ceiling games are going to few and far between now.
Played 32 minutes. Loading is 99% complete.
The Cavs defeated the Nets 129-123. BKN was on a back-to-back. Translation: Cavs D stinks.
Played 28 minutes. I still chuckle that Randolph is an important piece for the Kings. Anyways, when he plays, he produces. The problem is you don’t know when he’s going to play or how many minutes he will receive.
Has played 31, 30, and 37 minutes the past three games. I’ve seen this movie before, though. Wouldn’t be surprised if he plays 19 minutes next game. The potential is obviously there, but there’s just no way of knowing what the minutes will be.
Played 26 minutes. I’ve never been a fan, but he’s getting the minutes and our own Brent loves him.
Played 33 minutes. One of the few Kings that can be trusted, I guess. The shooting efficiency isn’t great, but dimes and steals should be plentiful.
Played 32 minutes. The usage has consistently been in the mid-20s, so the points will be there. What makes BogBog enticing are the steals.
Vince Carter played 19 minutes and scored 10 points. Uh, ok…..
Y’all know what time it is:
I’ve missed you.
He’s baaaaaack. Not quite the double-dub monster he was back in January, but Mr. Ed has been getting around 20 minutes of run and gobbling up boards again.
Played 21 minutes. First time getting to 20 points since early January. The potential is always there, but he’s just not getting enough run to be relevant. Needs Lillard or CJ to sit.
The Beal tastes soooooo goood.
All throughout Washington DC, protestors are carrying signs:
I kid, but the Wizards are 10-3 with Tomas in the lineup.
Otto Porter Jr.:
Has really stepped up and asserted himself on the offensive end with Wall out. Now has access to a fantasy ceiling.
Giannis Antetokounmpo almost messed around.
Could G become the first in the NBA to post a quintuple-dub? I saw that Wilt may have had one back in the day, but I can’t find confirmation. Just some YouTube video. 53 points, 32 boards, 16 dimes, 24 blocks, and 11 steals. HAHAHAHAHHAHA! It’s doubtful we ever see another quadruple-dub, which has occurred four times in NBA history, but it wouldn’t surprise me if G were to post both a quad and a quin. It must be getting late.
Played 27 minutes. Whoa…..If Parker is out there for some reason, you have to scoop him up. I did not expect this ramp up in minutes, but he has looked fantastic. If he gets around 30 minutes a game……I’m about to faint right now.
The ladies be loving the Mario with a D. So do fantasy owners, but for different reasons.
Has been tough to own, but at least he provides some sort of floor with his contributions in the periphery stats. With that said, he’s an important piece for the Sixers, so he’s going to continue getting run and hoisting up shots. There will be some massive ceiling games in the future.
Ha! This is all I see right now…..
Covington and JRich are so similar, so it’s funny that they guarded each other and posted similar lines.
Played 34 minutes. More importantly, played 8 minutes in the fourth quarter. Who gonna sex Hassan?!
Played 25 minutes. “I’m back in Miami, bitches!”
Wayne Ellington left Tuesday’s game with a quad injury.
Played 26 minutes. It was bound to happen.
Played 32 minutes. Won’t shoot much, but contributes across the board.
Played 35 minutes. Check this man’s knees. There has to be titanium with a bunch of nanobots floating around.
Played 23 minutes. 23-25 minutes seems to be the sweet spot for playing time. Regardless, Portis is an animal. Will score and grab boards. The Bulls have also been playing at a fast pace recently. Couple that with poor D and you have fantasy goodness.
Played 29 minutes. Last four games: 29, 30, 28, and 26 minutes. See your right hand? Take your thumb and your index finger. Now, measure your nose, from the base to the top. Hold that measurement. Put your thumb HERE. Now, read what it says where your index finger is.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist left Tuesday’s game with a hamstring strain.
Top 25 player for fantasy. All-Star label.
A nightly triple-dub threat. Many may be calling him Saint Nic at the conclusion of the season.
Did all of his damage in 16 minutes.
Got the start at shooting guard and played 31 minutes. Plays hard and performs when given the opportunity. When Avery Bradley and Gallinari are out, Wallace is an auto play.
Played 15 minutes. Boban is the Godzilla of the NBA. A menacing behemoth that wreaks havoc when making landfall. Is usually hidden in the depths of the ocean, though.
