Found March 23, 2013 on hecmanhoops:
Tony’s out of the shop, so it’s time to Parker in the lineup! If you haven’t heard, our favorite Frenchman, Tony Parker (22/2/5) returned Friday night as expected and played nicely. Old owners and new owners of TP rejoice! Phew…. Just in time…. Now let’s just hope Popovich doesn’t start to be a d!ck and bench all of our favorite Spurs down the stretch. If he does, you can’t blame me! I’ve been telling you to sell for two months now! Either way, those who have playoffs are in full playoff mode now. It’s that time of year where we are forced to make the toughest decisions of all, especially when your waiver adds are limited on a per week basis. The hecmanhoops crew will be available the rest of the way so don’t get your Superman underoos in a bunch. I’ll be coming out with a “prepare you for the first (or second) week of playoffs post” tomorrow. You will be enabled to make the best educated decisions of your lifetime, or at least for the next week in fantasy basketball. Until then, t
