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.

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

2010-11 Fantasy basketball mock draft w/ Weakside Help: Round 11

Mario Chalmers

The pickings are getting slimmer than than Fatboy — or Shady — or Carlos. (Ouch, 0-for-3.)

I’m already getting teary over the fact that we’re nearing the end of this delightful mocking adventure but there’s still work to be done, so let’s truck on, friends.

Concerning Luol Deng vs. Rashard “the hack” Lewis, it appears that things have nearly evened out. Regardless of the outcome, I’m glad Henry and I will have this trifling scuffle to keep track of throughout the season.

We’re not working with all that much in these parts, but what we have are a bunch of players who, like Henry said in round 10, have shots at making some serious comebacks. The rest of the picks basically force you to choose between the known and the unknown. The risks are certainly mitigated down in the last three rounds, but a steal down here will draw the ire and admiration of your opponents.

For you naughty ones who have to catch up, here are round oneround tworound threeround fourround fiveround sixround sevenround eight, round nine and round 10.

Now, onward to the almighty round 11: (continue reading…)
