By Jeff Rosenberg – Staff Writer Welcome back everyone. This week we shift back to the East. Before we dive into the typical facets of my weekly article, lets kick this Eastern Conference write-up off by paying homage to The King. LeBron James put on a clinic last night at the Triple A in Miami, posting 31/8/8 with two steals. He made his first eight field goals, and was an absolute enigma for the Bobcats D. Amazing night for LeBron, even if he did miss a jumper in the lane (13-14 from the field). Good news for James owners and Pat Riley, LBJ has not yet peaked. Better days ahead. Back to the matter at hand. Lets get into it… BEASTS OF THE EAST (Eastern Conference Players under 50% owned, endorsed by me) SG/SF Kyle Singler (DET) (16% Owned): Since the Rudy Gay trade (Jan. 30th), Singler has drawn the start at the three for the Pistons in all four of their games, getting 30, 36, 40 and 25 minutes.

That's the advantage...

Kidd-Gilchrist out with concussion

You do not see the same types of injuries during a basketball game that you would watching football. It is sad, but seeing players lie motionless after a big hit or get carted off the field has become almost routine during football games. In basketball, there are not any pads, so if someone takes a blow to the head and gets knocked unconscious, it’s a scary moment. Charlotte...
