One of the frequent names that comes up in Razzball comments is Luis Scola. His 13 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists line is fairly on par with the season (12.7/7.0/1.7) and his career (14.4/7.7/1.9). He has 5 years in the NBA and is 32 years old. He’s never going to be a 15/10 guy with 2 blocks per game, except on that rare full moon once per month. That’s not him. However, he is fairly consistent in what he produces. Basically, what you see is what you get. Do you want a guy who gives you between 10-15 points and 5-9 rebounds per night? Then he is yours to have. For the rest of the season, he’s not going to drop off and he’s not going to suddenly become LaMarcus Aldridge. Apologies for the delay in the post, James usually does the Friday round up but he was kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue James? Well, if not, help Dikembe Mutombo save the world. James will actually be back tomorrow with a Buy/Sell, so don’t worry about him too much. Ladies, you can always take him out for drinks to lift his spirits (pun?). Anyway, here’s what else went on in the NBA: Ronnie Brewer – It seems like every year, the Knicks have some player that the coach loves that is absolutely worthless. Brewer may be that guy this season. Where the Knicks came out and dominated the Heat, Brewer played 27 minutes and finished with 0 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists, a steal and 2 blocks. His season average is 6.8/3.5/1.3 in 22.8 MPG, but that still sucks. When STAT comes back, Ronnie should not be seeing more than 12-15 minutes per game. Raymond Felton – In the absence of Melo, Felton went to town with 27 points (6-10 from behind the arc), 4 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals. I guess he…FELTON GOOD ABOUT HIMSELF. Yeah! Jason Kidd – He remains a treat in deep leagues, going for 11 points, 4 assists, 2 steals, 2 rebounds and 3 of 8 from downtown. If +/- means anything to you (what is this, hockey?), he was also a +31. Keep that in mind when I get to Wade’s blurb. Dwyane Wade – With almost 32 minutes of court time (O.J. Simpson: “That’s nothin’!”), he finished with 13 points, 3 boards, 1 assist, 4 turnovers and -33. Basically, he is the reason there is starvation in Africa. LeBron James – He was the only member of the Heat with more than 13 points, and he had 31…hmm, that reminds me of the Offspring song, and I really prefer not to be reminded of the late 90s. Anyway, Bronnie Jammer also grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 9 times, plus had 3 steals and 3 threes. He’s like an unselfish Kobe Bryant! Elton Brand – Although he had 2 blocks, he also only produced 6/7/1 with a steal. It seems to me he’s lived his life like a Brand-le in the wind, never knowing what to cling to when the ball hit the rim. O.J. Mayo – When a man sees 40 minutes of playing time, I like to see 23 points (3-5 from deep), 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. I would LOvE to see 8 rebounds and 12 assists, that would really be worth the money. Of course, he also had 5 fouls and 6 turnovers, so he was sloppier than a mermaid’s nether regions at a nude chili wrestling match. Marcin Gortat – Rat-a-tat ran out of bullets and finished with 3 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal and 2 blocks. He even earned some boos for his performance. Take a bow! Sarcasticly, of course. Markieff Morris – Those who love M&M had some melt in their mouth with 15 points, 17 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks. He is averaging 9.2/5.0/1.3 with 0.4 blocks on the season, and it also marks his first double double of the season. Take a bow! Non-sarcastically, sort of. New Orleans Pelicans – The Hornets had three choices for a new team name, Brass, Krewe and Pelicans, and they went with Pelicans. I hope during games, they have something similar to this.
