PPPPPAAAANNNNTTTHHHHEEERRRRSSSS!!!!! ¬†Aight, aight, this is fantasy hoops, we’ll just leave it at that.
On Friday morning, the Clippers shed one of their % drain players, giving the DNP-king [another] fresh start in Houston. ¬†And what does Josh Smith do in his debut?! ¬†Goes all J Smoove like you’d expect! ¬†Goes 1-10 FG, 0-2 FT, for some reason took 4 treys and missed them all (what did you expect after bricking the first 3, Smoove?!), but still gets a rainbow line for 2/5/6/2/3. ¬†Oh yeah, 2 TO in there too. ¬†Smoove did bounce back last night after almost single-handedly costing the Rox a W in his debut, going 16/3/2/2/2 yesterday afternoon for back-to-back rainbows. ¬†He apparently stole someone else’s talent ala Space Jam alien, because he shot 6-14 FG, 2-2 FT, and had only 1 TO. ¬†“Talkin’ bout the Dream Team, we’re the Mean Team!” ¬†Josh Smith is not a good 9-cat fantasy asset in any league, and even in 8-cat, he’s probably not ownable in 12ers for me. ¬†That mean enough?! ¬†But the real criminal aspect of the acquisition is of course their absolute hatred for Terrence Jones. ¬†HE’S getting the full Mean Girls treatment – they’re feeding him Swedish weight gaining bars, JB Bickerstaff made out with his boyfriend, they’re turning his best friends against him… ¬†That organization is an institutional bully – culminating in a whopping 10 minutes of action last night with Dwight Howard (kankle) still out. ¬†I didn’t understand the McHale firing, I don’t understand this trade, I don’t understand the Ty Lawson signing… ¬†They’re¬†taking this off the rails faster than Lindsay Lohan’s Prius! ¬†Or, well, Lawson’s Prius… ¬†Here’s what else went down over the weekend in fantasy hoops action, plus The 7 Ahead for Week 14:Please, blog, may I have some more?
