    Mentioned this last year when he was on fire - in the long term you don't want your team to rely in any significant way on jr smith.

    Also - Jordan Hill putting up better numbers in LA than Dwight Howard...lol

    A lot of people fell prey to the fallacious thinking that he would be more motivated being home. I want to drive to Freehold and tell his momma to yell at him.

    Dude. He's JR Smith. He's always had the talent to play like he did last year, but a couple of years ago he couldn't cut it in China. Put a head case like that on a dysfunctional organization like the Knicks, and....

    Derrick Rose really can't catch a break.

    I know. Poor guy. Out indefinitely. He barely got into the season. Grabbed Hinrich on fantasy. I saw the injury, it looked like nothing.

    Mikey is gonna be pissed, he has him on his team.

    Now that Russy and Al Jeff are back I am just waiting for Kobe to suit up. I knew my fantasy team would be bad for awhile but I am getting verbally abused like Andre from the League

    I have Kobe in a non-SF league and I bought into the hype he'd be ready for the opener. What is it, another 2 weeks?

    I scored with Westbrook, though. He was slated to still be out right now and picked him up cheap in the SF Alden league.

    One of the roto sites said optimistically by end of November.

    Picking him and Westbrook is a good move if you do it late (which you appear to have done) but I got Russ in the 1st (really stupid) and Kobe in the 4th (not too bad). But I made up for it somewhat by getting Batum in the 3rd and Kevin Martin really late. But my team is still bad.

    Coulda been worse, I really wanted Derrick Rose but he was taken two picks before me.

    We did auction style for the SF league. I got him cheap in $ terms... $29, I guess 3rd round maybe if it were a snake draft. Martin is a points machine.

    Rose is already out for the season, I just read. This may finally not be Mikey's year.

    So, did Rose re-injure or injured a new knee? Is it the AC L again? If the former, did doctor not do a good job?

    Really sucks!

    I wonder if its from over training or not enough training to keep up with his actual on court performance. I don't think Rose will ever be the same.

    LBJ will still reign supreme

    I get that he is kobe but come on... that contract means the Lakers are now more hamstrung than they were before. It's a bit of a joke frankly

    Has anyone ever won the scoring title and shooting percentage title for a season? It would be amazing if LBJ pulled that off this year.
