We have some more clearly defined tiers at this point in the Writer’s League. Edge, PB And G, and Kostas are clearly the top 3, followed by seven teams within five games of each other. We all have a chance! Of course, I arbitrarily cut off the five games number there to include myself (why are you all reading this, he’s clearly a narcissist! Wait, quiet down 13 year old daughter. And how do you know such big words?) Even Son, Mr. Hooper, and the Oracle (the last three teams) are only like 6 back.

Team of the Week
Son: He went with a no centers strategy, focusing on guards for I think 9 rounds. This was a good plan, I believe. However, the execution of the plan makes me think fondly of diaper changing days in comparison! His first two picks were Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving. Lillard, good pick if he stays healthy which he hasn’t done for a bit. Couple years, there. And Kyrie, I’m not even going to like, go there, because I’m not getting paid for this and don’t want to go viral for any reason. I want to be forgotten!
Jordan Poole was probably supposed to average more than 15.6. And I’m the biggest Zach LaVine critic on the Bulls Facebook group so you know I’m down on him, and he’s sitting games, scoring only 21.9 on 44% shooting, and is in the bottom 15 percentile for shots at the rim. I guess what I’m saying is I think he had a good plan, but he kept picking my least favorite guys. Troll! Why did you pick your fantasy team to make me mad! Now you are way behind me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By half a game, anyway.
Interesting Pickups of the Week:
Shocker, Lonnie Walker got dropped again! And so did Patrick Williams! These poor guys, I wonder what their mothers say this does to their self esteem. And LOL, Bruce Brown got picked up again. I think the pattern is that some guys just aren’t good consistently, but have flashes so they get picked up. Except Patrick Williams. He’s only good in a tank everything team build.
I was bummed that I missed that Cam Johnson was cut as he was providing good volume on his 3s.
Jeremy Sochan looks to be in Pop’s good side in San Antonio. His energy will continue to lead to consistent minutes.
I’m not rushing to pick up Charles Bassey for long term but, with a five-game week, the kid could get some good boards numbers for a stream.
Cameron Payne is a great move. I picked him up and dropped him, needing the space for my roster. I thought Chris Paul was a shorter term injury. It is a minor thing, but I’m looking for Payne to log more minutes than expected. His first two games have been fire since Paul hurt his heel.
Well there’s this:

And this, narrated by Zach Lowe for your entertainment pleasure.
Much more competitive league than I have been in. Seems like three guys are ahead of the rest, but as we all know it only takes one injury, bad schedule, or Kyrie-like behavior to infect a team with nonsense.
