The NBA is BACK baby and so are the daily notes. This morning, fantasy owners were greeted by their players with a trick or treat. Oh LeBron James (26/10/3/2, 2 3PM), a snickers bar! Thank you Rajon Rondo (20/7/14, 9-14 FG), I love butterfingers! Kyrie Irving (29/6/3/0/1, 3 3PM), I can take two?!! Uh Steve Nash (7/2/4/0/1, 1 3PM), a f*cking apple? Are you joking me? Don’t you know parents make you throw **** like that away? WTF, and besides who wants an apple?! Sigh. In case you didn’t hear the general panic from California, the Lakers lost last night to the Dirkless Mavs. It’s OK though, in the spirit of Halloween they let the Bobcats dress up as Lakers and let them play. Such nice guys. The important thing to remember about the first week or two is don’t overreact/panic. Don’t suddenly trade Nash or give up on Bradley Beal (8/3/3/1, 2 3PM). There were only 3 games last night but here’s the other fantasy relevant news from the NBA:
Trevor Ariza – The Good: 2 3PM, 3
BEST OF MAXIM
This may or may not be real, but it's funny regardless. From thebiglead.com who got it from lobshots.com. My money is on real. I've already seen Rajon autograph a baby this week, and I know you can buy that shirt outside the Garden after games. Follow Mark on twitter @LucidSportsFan
On this day today (October 29th in 2010), Rajon Rondo had the second most assists in a game ever by a Celtic with 24 (Bob Cousy had 28 in a game in 1959), in a win over the New York Knicks. Rondo had a triple double (10 rebounds and 10 points) and he also had as many assists as the entire opposing Knicks team. One of his better performances. Do you remember this? This...
Looks like that Boston Celtics-Miami Heat tense rivalry just got taken up a notch.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo had an autograph signing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, last week, and while he was there, he took a picture with a female fan who was wearing a “LeBron is a ******** T-shirt.
There were plenty of questions on the ‘net about the authenticity of the shirt, but a second...
New Lakers point guard Steve Nash expressed frustration following the team's sub-par performance in its season-opening loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Much of the talk about Tuesday night centered on Rajon Rondo’s flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of the game. Legler did not have an issue with the play.
Said Legler: “I look at it as a guy...
LeBron James may post similar assist numbers to his tenure with the Cavaliers.
One of Steve Nash's former proteges has the chance to help the Phoenix Suns begin a new era.
Goran Dragic will attempt to help the Suns begin moving on without the two-time MVP on Wednesday night when they host the Golden State Warriors.
With Nash gone to the Los Angeles Lakers after eight years in which he turned Phoenix into one of the NBA's most high-scoring teams, the...
MIAMI -- Boston guard Rajon Rondo took out a Miami player. But it wasn't who you thought it might be.
It wasn't Ray Allen, believed to be a traitor by some up north for bolting the Celtics last summer to join the Heat as a free agent. It was guard Dwyane Wade, who called Rondo a "punk" for clotheslining him in the final minute of Miami's 120-107 opening-night...

Bryant (foot) did not practice Thursday but will play Friday against the Clippers.
Steve Nash ( Day-To-Day)
Nash is officially listed as doubtful for Friday’s contest against the Clippers due to a lower left leg contusion, however Nash remains hopeful he will...
First it was the lensless hipster glasses, now it appears that man purses could be the next big fashion trend among NBA players in 2012-2013. At least it appeared that way on opening night in Laker Land when two big named Lakers showed up to the Staples Center with a “murse” in tow. Kobe Bryant (who is no stranger to weird fashion) carried his on a chain while a Bill Nye-looking...
