A few thoughts on my mind this morning:

1) Congrats to all those reaping the benefits of having Chris Paul and Peja Stojakovic in their fantasy lineups last night  (such as myself).  Time to celebrate?  Don’t think so, but hey, it was a huuuge lift. 

2)Mo Williams has been slow starting.  I drafted this guy hoping for last year’s numbers, but so far he’s only been mediocre with a larger amount of turnovers.  The guy needs a little shakeup.  Time to start earning your money, Mo!

3)Too much Kobe talk still.  I’m still sticking with my preseason prediction of that he’ll be a Laker until the trade deadline.  Now all the writers are saying he’s not even worth his “value” that the Lakers are trying to get.  I find that kind of weird about the best player in the league.  I’m still a Kobe fan, and I know you are too. 

4)I’m loving how much Ben Wallace sucks now.  The Pistons clearly inked the right guy in signing Chauncey Billups.  I’m sure all Detroit fans are saying “Sheed is the only Wallace we need”!!!

5)How much do you love watching the Nuggets, the Warriors, and surprisingly the Raptors?  The Raps seem to have a fantastic team chemistry where the scoring seems to be more balanced than in past years.  Kudos to them, except for their dreadful loss last night to the Bucks. 

6)It’s all about Yiiiiiiiii.  This guy has been pretty good so far, considering he really has to share the ball with a lot of guys on that lineup.  They should easily have a playoff spot if their bigs can stay healthy.

 

That’s all I’ve got for now.

18, 2, 2 and 4

That’s 18 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 4 steals!  That’s a pretty stellar line for a guy that barely played last season.  By now you might have guessed if you checked the box scorers or watched highlights of opening night that  I’m talking about Ronnie Brewer.  Who?  To me, I only knew of this guy a coupld years ago as a friend in school told me about him, so I added him on Facebook.  I figured he’d be famous one day, and then I could brag to my other basketball junky friends that me and Ronnie are boys.  So far, so good!  Starting at shooting guard next to Deron Williams, Brewer held his own against Baron Davis and the athletic Warriors of Golden State.  If your like me, you already knew this guy had potential to break out this season with all the minutes available to him.  I drafted him in fantasy, and he’s already proving he’s worth more than what he was valued at.
