Like his white gooey namesake, O.J. Mayo globbed on 32 points thanks in part to 6 of 8 three point attempts (that’s 18 points from downtown for those of you keeping score at home). He only had 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals, but the guy was busy carrying the entire team on his shoulders, so we can probably give him a pass. He already has 86 points this season (4 games). I’ll buy that for $2! Oh, wait, I already did. #humblerotobrag. Eventually he will cool off, and at that point I want to see more peripheral stats, but in the meantime, O.J. owners should enjoy the ride in his white Ford Bronco of basketball success.

J.R. Smith – He continues to light it up, this time with 17 points in 34 minutes to go with 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and a block. The Knicks are on a roll and Smith is a major reason why. It was a night for initials. J.R.R. Tolkien is tickled pink in hell.

Raymond Felton – With 8 assists, he helped spread the ball around. With 16 points, helped bury the Sixers again.

Nick Young – Had problems hitting his shots (4-15, including 2-7 from downtown), but finished with 12 points. However, he only had 1 rebound and 1 assist despite 29 minutes of playtime.

Dorrell Wright – Took a page out of the Nick Young playbook (4-14, including 2-7 from downtown), but he added 9 rebounds and a block to his 14 points.

Brandon Roy – The return has not been very inspiring, I have to say. This time, he scored 6 points (no threes) with 7 assists. Obviously, the assists are good, but he needs to score in the double digits again, and often.

Dante Cunningham – The witty pig had a double double on the night (11/11) with 2 blocks. Well, squee squee my good sir.

Steve Nash – Yesterday I told you the Lakers were expecting him to miss four weeks or so. Today, they are saying he is only going to miss 7-10 days. That could mean he’s back in about a week, or it could mean he’s laying in a morgue somewhere. I wouldn’t drop him, in any event.

Deron Williams – We know he’s good, but how about 18 points and 14 assists good?

Kris Humphries – He had a lackluster performance, tallying 2 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block. Ugh, I may not be a Kardashian but I’m ready to divorce you from my team.

C.J. Watson – Off the bench, 3 threes to add to 13 points, 5 assists, and 1 steal. He had 15 points last time out. Like a man on house arrest, he may be worth monitoring.

Marcin Gortat – The MG watch: 12 points, 13 rebounds, 2 blocks. It’s official; he’s for real. Unlike Haley Joel Osment in A.I.

Gorin Dragic – The 13 points and 9 assists are nice, but he only took 9 shots (made 3) and didn’t surpass 29 minutes as a starter. The game was good, but it’s not quite right.

Shane Battier – Being a starter on the Heat doesn’t mean you’ll do netter than 5 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal and a block. Actually, those tidbits at the end helped the rather insubstantial line. It’s not quite substantial, it’s more like eh?stantial.

Ray Allen – Finished with 15 points (3 for 4 from deep), 6 assists, He now has 12 threes and 12 assists on the year, but Mario Chalmers (9 points, 3 threes, 11 assists) continues to edge him out as a starter. They played equal minutes, give or take 18 seconds.

Maurice Williams – Mo Williams, mo assists, as they say on the Jazz. Mo had 17 points, 8 assists, and 4 rebounds. Unfortunately he was only 1 of 5 from beyond the arc.

Zach Randolph – As I say from time to time, if a player has more rebounds than points, it’s usually because they only scored a handful of times. Well, Mr. Randolph scored 16 points, so those 18 boards (9/9 offensive-defensive) were a hell of a performance. As I also say from time to time, his baby head disturbs me to my deepest core.

Quincy Pondexter – Razzball is the only fantasy sports blog in the galactic quadrant that gives this gentleman coverage, and look what he did: 14 points, including 2 of 3 from outside, plus an assortment of other stats (2 rebounds, 1 assist).

Meyers Leonard – Let’s kibbitz a bit about Meyers, he is not seeing a lot of court time but he’s a mensch and still grabbed 9 rebounds and blocked a shot. If he can boost those points a bissel (only 6 last night), we could end up shmaltzy over him. For now, he’s a putz.

Elton Brand – I was asked if he will turn it around. I think so, but apparently he’s still working on it, just accumulating 8 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists.

Shawn Marion – Another ho-hum Mavericks effort, tallying 8 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists. Give these guys credit, it’s the assists that really turn boring lines into passable stats.

Chris Kaman – In the shadow of Orange Juice Mayonnaise, he quietly put together 16 points and 6 rebounds. Okay, it wasn’t that quiet, he grunted a bit.

Damian Lillard – He scored 13 points. Not bad, right? 8 of those points were free throws. He took 13 shots. Do the math. Okay, put the calculator away, he missed 2 of 13 field goal attempts. Worse, he missed all but one of his 8 three point shots. Why were the Mavericks even fouling him? He couldn’t get a golf ball into the Gulf of Mexico.

Roy Hibbert – Dr. Hibbert, this is no laughing matter, you only scored 2 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. That’s not what I expect from you!

David West – Now, 10 points, 11 rebounds, that’s more along the lines of what I expect from Hibbert. Good show, David.

DeJuan Blair – The Blair Bench Project had scary results for the Pacers, as DeJuan came into the game to lead his team in minutes and put up 14 while dragging down 11. He also had 4 assists. Make sure to get your dimes, they add up to big bucks.

Danny Green – Oh Danny boy, the stats, the stats are calling. For 10 points to 4 boards, and downtown, 2 threes.

Tristan Thompson – He had a ton of floor time, 32 minutes in fact, and scored 1 point. He had 8 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block. Disappointing is the word I’m looking for.

Dion Waiters – Thank Heaven for 7-11…from three point land. He scored 28 points, but only had 3 rebounds and 1 assist.

Anderson Varejao – He had an impressive double double with 15 points, 15 rebounds, plus a block.

DeAndre Jordan – With 10 points and 6 rebounds, he had a ho hum game. Oh wait, what’s that? He had 5 blocks? Hey now.

Jae Crowder – The waiver wire temptress had 19 points, including 4 threes, but just the 1 assist with 0 steals.

Lamar Odom – It was my mistake to rank him anywhere, given his performances. He played just 4 minutes and scored 2 points with 2 turnovers. He is pretty much unownable in any league.

Harrison Barnes – Teaching a lesson about what you can catch if you get too excited for rookie nookie, he finished the night with 6 points, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 0-3 from behind the arc.

Andrew Bogut – Looks like he’s not 100% yet, because if he is 100% yet, he’s in trouble. He played less than 19 minutes for 12 points, 3 rebounds and 1 block.

Stephen Curry – With 39 minutes of court time, he managed 12 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. These assists last night are really the only thing stopping me from murder-alizin’ some of these players.

Marcus Thornton – Off the bench again, he had 16 points, 3 assists, 1 steal, 4 rebounds, and the only real blemish was going 2 of 8 from downtown.

DeMarcus Cousins – There’s really no need to talk about how great it is to be involved with Cousins, but here’s a reminder: 23 points, 15 rebounds, 2 blocks and an assist for the hell of it.

Barack Obama – According to former Baseball Prospectus turned New York Times writer Nate Silver, the President is over 90% likely to win a second term, but you should go vote even if you think your vote for Obama or Mitt Romney doesn’t matter. Local and state offices have more impact on your life than the president ever could, anyway. Speaking of the race for president, may I present Jeff Boss for your consideration? He has evidence that 9/11 was an inside job. Shhh…the NSA may be listening right now.

    I know it’s still early but should I be freaking out about humphries? I took him as my second pick in my 24 team league and a miss-pick there is a season death sentence….

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Sawx10, nah, unlike Rotoworld, I’m not going to poop my pants this early.

  2. Jeff says:

    should I drop stuckey for g vasquez?

    • Shane says:

      @Jeff, Yes do it now. Especially if you need assists.

  3. Lance says:

    Is MKG worth hanging on to? What stats do you see him averaging this year?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Lance, I projected him at 461 fg/.720 ft/11.5 pts/6.1 rbd/1.5 ast/0.8 stl/0.7 blk and he is currently doing .333 fg/.556 ft/7.5 pts/6.0 rbd/1.5 ast/2.5 stl/1.5 blk. If his FT% improves his points will improve, so you are basically looking at my projections with better steals and blocks.

      • Lance says:

        @ChrisV, Thanks. Would you rather have him or someone like Crowder?

        • ChrisV

          ChrisV says:

          @Lance, yeah, if only because MKG is providing better peripheral stats. Crowder is a nice bonus for the threes, but overall MKG has better value.

  4. Lance says:

    Thanks again!

    Have you seen the videos on 9/11 where the building explodes before the plane even hit it? Or at the pentegon where there is no way a bowing 757 or watever it was (a big bleepin plane), could fit into the damage they said it made. Wheres the footage of that?? You know theres cameras ALL over.. its the pentegon… I have really questioned 9/11 over the last handful of years.. so many holes in the evidence. And jeff boss knows it! Anywhoooo… Haha i traded nash and javale for his ibaka.. trying to buy low i guess. How did i do? Old man nash already hurt, not a good sign for his season outlook.

    10 team points league, basic stats, added O-Rebounds. Thanks new razzball friend!

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @prezii, It looks like Nash will be back sooner than expected, but you at least picked up the king of blocks.

      • prezii says:

        @ChrisV, i knew he was going to be back 7-10 days when i made the trade.. they were talking about resting him every 2-3 games.. ehh scared me outta the nash potatoes… Thanks for ur input!

  6. Mike says:

    Is it worth dropping Tony Allen for Al-Farouq Aminu in a 12-men head to head league?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Mike, yes

  7. Principle Blackman says:

    I just got offered Iguodala and Beaubois for Afflalo and Jae Crowder. What are your thoughts on this trade. It’s a 12 team, 10 cat. roto league. Here is my roster as it stands now.

    pg teague
    sg afflalo
    g monta
    sf josh smith
    pf horford
    f thaddeus young
    c demarcus cousins
    c bosh
    util evan turner
    util jose calderon
    bn brand, gerald green, danny green, jae, and steve blake

    I feel like my team is light on assists. The owner offering the trade also has Kyrie Irving and Damien Lillard, but I am not sure I can get him to part with either of them.

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Principle Blackman, My only problem with that trade is Beaubois. Otherwise, I like moving Affalo and Crowder for AI and someone else. I doubt he would trade either of those two you mentioned, but you never know.
