Beast of the Night: Dwyane Wade finished with 26 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals,1 block and 2 turnovers last night against the Wizards.  He shot 47 percent (8-17) from the field and 100 percent (10-10) from the free-throw line. Wade has bounced back in his past three games after some struggles earlier this month but is still having a disappointing season so far.

Lines for Discussion:
Gilbert Arenas: 9-21 FG (43%), 2-2 FT (100%), 3 threes, 23 Pts, 5 Reb, 7 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO

Chris Bosh: 5-14 FG (36%), 10-14 FT (71%), 20 Pts, 7 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Chris Paul rocked the Rockets with 25 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 4 steals, 1 block, 1 turnover and a three to top things off. He shot 58 percent (7-12) from the field and 83 percent (10-12) from the free-throw line. Of the top-three picks heading into the season, Paul is the only one who has justified that status so far this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Dwight Howard: 7-13 FG (54%), 4-11 FT (36%), 18 Pts, 16 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 8 Blk, 3 TO

Ben Gordon: 9-19 FG (47%), 4-5 FT (80%), 22 Pts, 4 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO (continue reading…)

Chain gang: Mock draft reminder, the dreaded 4th pick, Pau Gasol, happy Yao, KG’s potty mouth

by on Aug.25, 2010, under Chain gang, Mock drafts

Kevin Garnett

I'd like to tell you that KG's telling the ref to "Check out these links," but he's probably saying something closer to "**** ******* *** **** *********." (Keith Allison/Flickr)

A friendly reminder: Our flash-mob mock draft at Mock Draft Central is taking place tomorrow evening (Thursday, Aug. 26). Since I’m gunning for us all to take part in a free draft (bloggin’ ain’t easy — or lucrative), I can’t predict exactly what time or how many spots (10 or 12) will be available in the slot we get, but it will be sometime around 7 p.m. EDT (it won’t be earlier than that). The good news is that you can reserve your spot as soon as the time slot is created by the good people at Mock Draft Central, so keep an eye out for an update here and on Twitter sometime late tonight or early tomorrow morning about exactly when the draft will take place. It will be 14 rounds of nine-category goodness, and you choose your pick position. After the draft is over, I’ll post a round-by-round analysis where I’ll publicly laud or embarrass your picks (half-kidding). I hope you’re excited as I am.

  • You’ll find Dirk Nowitzki ranked as the No. 4 overall fantasy player just about everywhere, but that doesn’t mean it’s cool. Justin at Life is Just a Fantasy…Basketball Blog talks about why he’s going with Stephen Curry at No. 4.
  • Henry at Weakside Help is optimistic about the likes of Greg Oden and Andrew Bynum this season, but Pau Gasol? Pau-lease.
  • Fantasy Basketball Daily is in the midst of his position-by-position fantasy rankings (based on a scoring system). Tippy’s going with Deron Williams over Chris Paul.
  • The great Dan Gilbert is the guest poster for Give Me The Rock’s Cleveland Cavaliers fantasy team preview, and guess what? Comic Sans, that’s what.
  • Yao Ming‘s famous foot (shouldn’t it have a nickname by now?) is declared fully healed and the big man appears optimistic. The AP report mentions his conditioning (he lost 40 pounds in the last 3.5 months, and wants to lose more weight) and that his minutes will be limited in the early going, as expected. If you’re optimistic about his fantasy value this season, giggle with glee.
  • Kevin Garnett used to be a fantasy monster — now he’s relegated to being good for a highlight reel’s worth of cussing. Head over to Basketbawful to witness some of KG’s verbal diarrhea, but put earmuffs on the ears of any children that might be in the room.
