A ton of dope s*** happened last night. I’ll try to encapsulate all of it in essay form.
Brian Shaw was fired. The move prompted Josh Lloyd to purchase a plane ticket on the next flight out to Denver. Because Josh felt compelled to thank Stan Kroenke and Tim Connelly in person for relieving Shaw, I’ve inherited Box Score Breakdown duties today and tomorrow. I think a thank you letter would’ve been just as effective, but far be it for me to question the fiscal decisions of Mr. Lloyd.
Much like the UFC card siguised as a Suns-Heat matchup, I’m ready to punch my way through today’s Box Score Breakdown and really see how you can make a push to your league’s championship.
In this edition of the Box Score Breakdown, I overreact to a bunch of atypical performances.
I also want to wish a happy birthday to my father. I know he’s not reading this right now.
The trade deadline in standard Yahoo! leagues expires Thursday, March 5th at 11:59 PM EST. You have been warned.
This is our weekly cheat sheet based on our player’s projected output and number of games. It assumes an eight-category league with the following categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, three-pointers made, free-throw percentage, and field-goal percentage.
These are my rankings. They do not necessarily correspond with the RotoWire cheat sheet or our projections for the season. I use both as a rough guide, but I primarily factor in number of games played for the week, current player trends and pertinent information about the team (injuries, timeshare situations, etc.). The weekly player rankings are written up following Saturday’s games. We will try to update the meter with any breaking news that happens on Sunday, but in most cases, any injuries, lineup changes, etc. that happen on Sunday won’t be accounted for in the rankings until the following week.
|Week 19:||March 2nd-March 8th|
|Four Games:||BKN, BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DEN, GSW, HOU, LAL, MEM, MIA, NO, PHI, PHO, SAC, TOR, UTA|
