Every year, there are guys in the league who we own who ruin the entire experience for ourselves and others. Like, I’m just so over it. The All-Star break, and that game that happened on Sunday night that nobody I know of watched, is a perfect time to explore some of these guys who will […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
On the last day of games before the All-Star break, Joel and Stan take a tour through the NBA’s basement to get a sense of the potential risers and fallers in the NBA’s upcoming silly season. Who stands to gain if (when) the Wizards shut down Kyle Kuzma? Does Miles Bridges’ status as an unrestricted […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re back from break and podding in the new year! After spending a week in a basketball deprivation tank, Joel and Son kick off 2024 by surveying their fantasy teams and discussing what’s gone right (Alperen Sengun for Son, Grayson Allen for Joel) and what’s gone wrong (Cade Cunningham and Devin Booker for both.) The […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
We are so used to seeing the superstars and the more recognizable names as they progress in their career and become more popular and enamored with the media that we often forget that they also started from somewhere and as some point went through their first interview, their first press conference, etc. Now I’m not […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
You are here to witness the birth of a meme. I will give you first the context… The Timberwolves were playing the Orlando Magic last night and during the second quarter, Karl Anthony Towns posterized Mo Wagner with a vicious dunk. And then one of the best synchronized taunts I have ever seen happened from […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, we just passed the “third-mark” of the season, which as the term implies, was the point when the third of the season was reached… not sure why I created a term and defined when I could have just saved a step, but then again, I live in a world where word count equals money, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
I would like to start by wishing happy holidays to everyone and best wishes for the new year that is coming in a couple of days. May all your plans come to fruition and all your fantasy teams win their league with ease. As per usual, the festive season is a period that emphasizes hope […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Following night one of the Knockout Round of the In-Season Tournament, Son and Joel discuss the success of the IST and bat about other potential improvements to the NBA. Then, the pair redraft the 2021 NBA rookie class from a fantasy perspective. Who goes #1? How far does Cade Cunningham fall? What is Jonathan Kuminga […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
I admit it, I’ve never been a huge Luka Dončić guy (he finished with 36 points, 15 rebounds, 18 assists and 2 blocks and 2 steals), though to my credit (and so I don’t have to eat an egregious amount of crow) I always respected the talent. Well, respected the talent shining through what seemed […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello Razzball, back again for some NBA DFS action. We have a nice 7 game slate and personally these mid-sized slates are my favorite. You have plenty of options on slates this size to make different builds, but you’re not overwhelmed by the variety of good plays. My number one piece of advice for NBA […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The end of each year is now deemed “Silly Season,” when resting vets on contenders and breakout youngsters on tanking teams play havoc with lineup decisions. Three weeks into the season, I now declare this time of the year “Wacky Season,” with Wednesday night a perfect example. There are players who started injured coming back, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Bergens are coming, AHHH. The Bergens are coming, AHHH. The Bergens are coming, AHHH. The Bergens are coming, AHHH.
For those without kids, that’s Branch in “Trolls” overreacting because he’s scared of success (and friendship), just like so many fantasy basketball players will overreact to the first couple games, when regular bench rotations guys will be proclaimed breakouts of the season, and busts will be said to abound as the rust gets knocked off the boots.
However, while we definitely don’t want to overreact, let’s remember: Branch ended up being right. You don’t want to be caught with that average penny stock and telling yourself, “any day now, it’s gunna go crazy!” [Checks portfolio, sighs with depression, gets back to basketball.] Keep an eye on minutes, rotations and usage more than the general stat lines in these early going.
And with that piece of nonsensical advice, let’s get on with the show! Here’s what caught my eye in the 12 games of the unofficial official opening night in The Association. Please, blog, may I have some more?
