And we’re back baby! ¬†The All-Star break in Nawleans has come and gone, with a disappointing dunk contest, no bounce passes in the skills contest (yeah, what was up with that Prez?!) and All-Star jerseys that made the finale look like an adult rec league game on a Thursday night. ¬†“Help, I think Stanley has a hernia!” ¬†I was constantly thinking to myself about the Major League quote, but the opposite. ¬†Brian Scalabrine or Matt Bonner coming into their first practice with sleeves and a hat on, and their coaches were like, “We don’t wear caps and sleeves at this level son!” ¬†Sure made that coach look stupid on Sunday night! ¬†And if you’re a Cleveland fan, you’ve got to be thinking, “Crikey wtf is going on!?” after seeing Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters go off in their respective ASB games over the weekend. ¬†Then to see neither of them do anything against the 76ers last night! ¬†To be fair, the Cavs let their scrubs do all their damage in a blowout. ¬†So I guess if Cavs are thinking crikey, Philly fans are thinking, “if we don’t win 20 games this year, I’m giving up cheesesteaks!” ¬†Drastic? ¬†Probably. ¬†Be liking asking me to give up that delicious BBQ. ¬†Now I’m all sorts of hungry… How did this get into food? ¬†Let’s just dive right in to last night’s return to action, like how you’d dive into an all-you-can-eat Southern food buffet with mac & cheese, hush puppies, chopped BBQ, whole BBQ, biscuits & gravy, and then, and then…:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Man! ¬†I was loving that game! ¬†Through three contests (the inaugural¬†one in the comments then when adopted into the piece), I didn’t get a single win! ¬†For shame… At least now with Kobe Bryant missing 6 weeks, we’ll be brimming with excitement to relaunch the game! ¬†I never ended up with Kobe anywhere, so I’m downplaying the real fantasy impact here… Kobe owners are asking should I hold or should I let go? ¬†I think he is probably a hold in almost all leagues if you can, but man, these top-end injuries are killin’ out there! ¬†Plus we have to remember it’s a fractured knee and a re-sewn up Achilles. ¬†And he wasn’t setting the world on fire anyway. ¬†Kobe is turning into Jeter from last year! ¬†Bryant is a medical marvel though, he can jump over cars going 40 MPH and come back after bone spurs a game later. ¬†So he’s worth the stash unless it’s a very shallow 10-teamer or smaller, or you’re just a triage of injuries. ¬†Here’s what else went down last night across fantasy hoops:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, here we are fantasy baskethoopers (<– my mentally ill uncle’s term, often sputtered out in between foul-language rants about the garbage man); the final day of your fantasy basketball season (unless you’re in a playoff format in which you did not make the finals.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Maybe I’m bad luck and every time I post there are a bunch of guys who get injured. ¬†Or maybe this season is just too whacky. ¬†Whatever the case may be, there was alot of players who didn’t play last night due to injuries or some other reason. ¬†Please, blog, may I have some more?
There gets a point in every crayon box where you just don’t want to bother with unwrapping the paper, sharpening the wax down to a more manageable point and coloring anew. Those damn crayons never came close to being as sharp as they were when they were organized and fresh.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The big news from the weekend is that Glen Davis damn near triple-doubled on Sunday against the Raptors. Wait, that was the XXL news from the weekend. Sorry. I keep my news sizes as confusing as movie theater popcorn sizes. Wait, the medium is the smallest size you can order?Please, blog, may I have some more?
