You want to know garbage time, oh, I gots some garbage time up in here for you! Did you check out the Knicks-Bobcats box score last night? I can only imagine some 9 year old kid sitting in his seats at the game with his daddy last night. The conversation probably went something like this: Daddy, where is Carmelo Anthony? … Oh, Junior, Carmelo is the one sitting on the end of the bench in a $10,000 Armani suit … Oh, why isn’t he playing daddy? … Well, he’s resting, Junior, he’s tired and it’s only the Bobcats … Oh, bummer, daddy, how about Tyson Chandler and Amare Stoudemire, where are they? … Oh, those guys are hurt, son. Tyson has a stiff neck and Amare is learning to walk with his arms … Hey, daddy, I wanted to see Raymond Felton play, remember when he used to play for the Bobcats? … Yeah, I remember, that was before Michael Jordan traded him away but it was ok because we needed to develop D.J. Augustin, that worked out really well for us, D.J. is in the playoffs! Anyhoo! The moral of the story is streamers are more important than ever. Major players are resting up for the playoffs so you need to be extra vigilant these last two days of the season. What I just said about the Knicks also applies to the Heat-Cavs game and many others last night. We straight, Skippy? Below are guys you’ll want to take a good look at as streamers on Wednesday. I’m going to skip stats for the sake of time and instead just list a bunch of guys who are getting burn:
Chris Copeland – Went crazy last night and probably will again Wednesday even if Carmelo Anthony plays a few minutes.
Steve Novak – 5 threes last night. That’s what he does, he hits the three ball!
Pablo Prigioni – Started at point guard and played 42 minutes with 8 dimes.
Iman Shumpert – Played 42 minutes last night.
James White – Played 43 minutes last night. Stretch those legs, stretch them out!
Taj Gibson – Came back and could be a nice streamer tomorrow night.
E’Twaun Moore – Played 27 minutes last night.
Norris Cole – The whole Heat team took the night off and they still won!
Mike Miller – Only played 26 minutes but can do damage with that.
Rashard Lewis – Played 32 minutes.
Joel Anthony – 31 minutes last night and almost double-doubled with 2 blocks.
Ray Allen – Sad, it’s come down to him being just a streamer but Mike Miller told you to avoid him back in October!
James Jones – Three point specialist! It’s true.
Shaun Livingston – Getting back court burn but you already knew that!
Dion Waiters – The knee bone is connected to the streamer bone!
Cartier Martin – I had him in my Add/Drop post last Friday. Really, I did. Go check it out if you don’t believe me!
Kevin Seraphin – He disappointed you earlier in the season so let him disappoint you late in the season, too! It’s fun!
Kris Humphries – Hump!
Andray Blatche – Dray!
Mirza Teletovic , MarShon Brooks, C.J. Watson – The rest of the Nets bench warmers!
Arnett Moultrie – I’d love to see a huge game out of him tomorrow. Maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t!
Dorell Wright – Remember when he was good for like a nano second on Golden State? Me neither.
Kyle Singler – Just imagine Kyle is back in college playing against Wake Forest. That’s Kyle tomorrow night.
Ty Lawson – I’m sure he was grabbed, you better have grabbed him if he was dropped. It’s the law, son!
Evan Fournier – I still don’t know what Fournier means in French but it went from hot to kind of like warm.
John Henson – Did you get your Henson John!?
Jerryd Bayless – Will probably do well tomorrow. He does well when he plays minutes!
Justin Holiday – While Jrue takes one.
Keyon Dooling – Hey, you never know!
Ed Davis – Empty the bench!
Brandon Wright – Give Chris Kaman a look-see also.
Jae Crowder – Dallas guys should rest. I assume they will rest anyway.
Cole Adrich – Been rolling a bit.
Jimmer Fredette – Hopefully, he will make Bobby Hurley, Jr. proud tomorrow night.
Reggie Jackson – Swing for the fences!
Hasheem Thabeet – Nice and unathletic, just the way a lottery pick should be!
Nick Collison – Yay?
Festus Ezeli – Love the name!
DeMarre Carroll – Take a look at the whole Utah bench if you’re desperate. I know you are, you’re reading this!
Kendall Marshall – Played 28 minutes last night.
Nando De Colo, Gary Neal, Corey Joseph, DeJuan Blair, Patty Mills – I imagine all these studs will get burn tomorrow night. Oh, they are on the Spurs.
Greg Smith – Starting! For whatever that’s worth.
Terrence Jones – Went over him last week. I think it was last week, I can’t remember anything anymore. It’s all just a haze after 6 months of blogging everyday! You’re welcome now please consider buying a t-shirt to support the blog!
