Pau Gasol and the Lakers have had a train wreck of a season so far. 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. 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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kris Humphries (3/4/0 with 2 blocks) fouled Kevin Garnett (16/10/1) somewhat hard (his flopping made it look worse than it was). Rajon Rondo (6/1/3 with 2 steals) took exception to the contact, and since NBA players are mature, emotionally well-adjusted individuals, a brawl ensued, resulting in the ejection of Humpy and Rondo.Please, blog, may I have some more?
One thing I absolutely hate, I mean really despise, is when teams relocate. I think it’s a giant middle finger to fans and a blemish on the legacy of the team. That also leads to bizarre team names, like the Lakers in L.A.Please, 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. Here’s the original tiers, updated Guard tiers, and last week’s Forward tiers. 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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Usually in the mornings you get your daily roundup, but I’m saving the recap for this afternoon so I can roll out the M*A*S*H unit now and give everyone updates on the most anticipated players still nursing injuries (not in any particular order, so pay not attention to the fact I’m leading off with Gerry Henderson).Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ask and ye shall receive (unless it’s money, I’m broke). If you see anyone I missed or guys that you think should be included (I did NOT miss Hasheem Thabeet), shout it out in the comments. I’ll tell you which tier I’d put em in or why I did not/would not include them.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I figured the odds were good that Andrew Bynum would miss some time during the season. He has been injury prone during his career, so the chances are fairly high that he would get banged up once again. Little did I expect such a thing would happen before the season even started.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here it is, friends, the big kahuna. It’s like when your friends sit around and say, “what are your top 30 Arnold Schwarzenegger movies?” Only instead of that, it’s me telling you the top 100 basketball players for fantasy basketball purposes.Please, blog, may I have some more?
For a Washington Wizards team that ranked 27th in the NBA in three-point shooting over the past two years, Bradley Beal will be a very welcome edition. The Wizards must have cast some spell on me (expelliarmus!) because I look at that starting-five and I think, “Wow, Washington actually isn’t so bad!” Well, don’t get me wrong, they are still pretty bad.Please, blog, may I have some more?
