What a long strange trip it’s been. Who sang that? I know that’s a song, I’m pretty sure anyway. The Grateful Dead! I once saw them at the Meadowlands in New Jersey way, way back in like 1995. In case you don’t know, The Meadowlands was also known as Giants Stadium which is now known as Met Life Stadium. Corporate sell out! Anyway, enough about the Grateful Dead, all I remember about the show is people throwing stuff at Sting, he opened up for them. Then I blacked out and when I woke up I had bad breath and was sitting in a Denny’s at 2:30 a.m. with a Grand Slam breakfast in front of me. Anyhoo, it was a long strange trip that day, like fantasy basketball this season! Yesterday, Ty Lawson started and played 31 minutes and looks to be feeling better. I had some concerns last week that he wouldn’t be very helpful if he was only going to play limited minutes but 31 surprised even my Magic 8 Ball! The Nuggets play tonight and Wednesday so go ahead and grab him if he was reasonably lost. Hopefully, he won’t fart on your pillow with limited burn heading into the playoffs but I wouldn’t be surprised. P-U! We’ve got three more days to do work so let’s get to it, shall we?
Anthony Randolph – 18/6/0 with 2 steals and a block. With Kenneth Faried looking down for the count, Anthony Randolph could actually help you to fantasy glory. Anthony Randolph!
Nazr Mohammed – 0/2/0 with a steal. He was playing well with basically the whole front court out but disappeared into the hole he came from with the return of Luol Deng. Sigh.
Mike Miller – 11/6/4 with 2 steals and three threes. He’s suddenly even playing with the first unit. Talk about stepping in doo, doo. He should keep some his mild production the ROS!
Keith Bogans -6/1/2 with 2 threes. Started but did nothin’! Typical. Ignore. As usual!
Aaron Gray – 4/9/2 in 34 minutes. Here’s what I told you the other day in my Amir Johnson blurb: Amir Johnson – 56% – Pretty much it’s him and the ball boy in the Toronto front court. And by ball boy, I mean Aaron Gray. I thought it was funny anyway. If you’re super desperate for cheap boards then give the ball boy a look-gander.
Lance Stephenson – 22/4/1 with 2 steals and 4 threes. He very quietly had a productive season. Can he continue it next year? Meh, if Danny Granger is back in the fold with essentially the same team.
Kyrie Irving – 4/3/3/ with a steal and a three. Burp. He can only do better but you already knew that!
Arnett Moultrie -10/6/0 in 24 minutes. The 76ers don’t gots nothing to play for so maybe, just maybe, Arnett will get a little burn these last two games. If you’re desperate you may just get a cherry on top. It’s also possible you’ll get a pit! Hey, I said if you’re desperate!
Will Barton – 17/9/5 with a three. Yes! Good ole Will Barton, sounds like a magic act in Vegas. I think that’s the guy’s name, not sure. He makes championships magically appear!
Evan Fournier – 24/4/4 with 3 steals and 3 threes. I’m not sure what fournier means but it sounds French for hot! Go!
O.J. Mayo – 8/2/4 with a steal and 2 threes. Not much to be said about O.J. He slowed a bit but what’s you gonna do. Did you sell him high when I told you to? That was awhile ago before he got, um, cold.
Brian Roberts – 13/4/6 with a steal and 3 threes. He’s clearly in the rotation even with Greivis Vasquez and Eric Gordon both in the lineup so good on Brian! No, I’m not Australian. Too bad they have just one game left. Wednesday!
Robin Lopez – 10/13/2 with a block. I told you to sell his afro loving ass way, way, way back in the day. The day being like December or January. Or both! He’ll make for a nice streamer on Wednesday though with Anthony Davis now launched until next season.
Cole Adrich – 12/12/0 with a steal and 4 blocks. What can be said about Cole that hasn’t already been said? He’s a legend in his own mind! Keep an eye on DeMarcus Cousin’s suspension and stream away if DMC is out tonight! Or don’t. Your call. Patrick Patterson is another option. Or Jason Thompson!
Chandler Parsons – 13/5/5 with a steal, block and 2 threes. The game was a blowout so not much value in any of the lines but Chandler passed you the Grey Poupon this year and probably some fantasy gold! Or at least a silver or bronze.
Jodie Meeks – 8/4/4 with 2 threes. The Lakers only have one game left so Jodie can help you in threes but you best have yourself a FG lead if you stream him, son!
Steve Blake – 23/5/4 with 2 steals and 4 threes. Steve, the Lakers point guard, leading you to fantasy glory! Yes! Wait, I already used that one last week.
