Pau Gasol and the Lakers have had a train wreck of a season so far. Â Pau is seeing nearly all his numbers being below career average (12.6/8.9/3.5/0.5/1.2 with 42% FG and 76% FT) and having “knee tendinitis” to boot. Â As such, I had to move him down in the tiers because you can’t be a Victoria’s Secret model with those type of numbers. ÂPlease, blog, may I have some more?
Last night,Â Kobe Bryant scored over half his teamâ€™s points (40) and reached a triple double.Â No, not the good kind of triple doubleâ€¦the kind where you also have 10 turnovers.Â An absurd line of 40/10/3/3 with 5 3PM, 12-28 FG, 11-13 FT, and the aforementioned 10 turnovers.ÂPlease, blog, may I have some more?
As I mentioned the past couple weeks, every Wednesday I will release tiers for G/F/C in rotating fashion. Â Hereâ€™s the originalÂ tiers,Â updated Guard tiers, andÂ last week’s Forward tiers. Â Starting next week, I’ll split this into a morning and afternoon post (morning for recap and afternoon for tiers) to better explain the movement taking place.ÂPlease, blog, may I have some more?
My favorite thing in basketball, besides a bunch of other stuff, is the triple double. It should come as no surprise that Kobe Bryant had one. The future Hall of Famer scored 22 points, grabbed 11 boards, and handed out 11 dimes.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The NBA had its second triple double of the year, and it was earned byÂ Jose Calderon.Â He scored 13 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds. He has been averaging a whopping 1.0 rebound per game, so this was a wee bit of a surprise.Please, blog, may I have some more?
