Bosh darn it. Can I say that? I have been banished to fantasy purgatory with the dreaded “out an indefinite period of time” label that has been placed on Chris Bosh’s status for the basketball season, due to discomfort in his knee. This might almost be as bad as the Latrell Sprewell situation. Ok, I am over exaggerating, but Chris Bosh was putting up 20 points and 12 rebounds every night.
Now, of course Paul Pierce goes down with a “stress reaction” on his left foot that “there is no treatment for” that sounds eerily similar to the situation that happened with Derek Fisher a few years back. How did that turn out – that’s right, surgery and 8-months out. Yes, and Piece was even a bigger monster, 27 points, 7.5 Rebounds, 4 assists, and 2.5 3’s a night.
Why do people get injured? Maybe I should rephrase that, why do two fantasy monsters on “my” fantasy teams get injured? These were my second and third picks to make matters worse. Do they not understand that my fantasy life is at stake here? Who cares about their teams, they are in the Eastern (Leastern) Conference, where nobody has a chance to win anything. I guess things could be worse – I could have traded for Carmelo Anthony.
Cornerstone Conference – enjoy feasting on Bio-Waste in the coming weeks. By the way, if you are looking for three’s, I have some talent up for grabs. Yeah, given my recent injuries, I need a lot – but I am especially thin in rebounds and blocks. Maybe even a guy who does this and shoots for a bad FT%.
On some happier notes:
- My fantasy soul is more joyful than it ever has been. Year after year, I have begrudgingly cheered Kobe Bryant on each game during the regular season – fully knowing that his every success meant my potential downfall in the weekly standings. His gain was my loss. Not this year, with Kobe on my team – he can score 81 every night for all I care!
- Order has been restored in Los Angeles. The Clippers for all their efforts have again sunk to the bottom of their conference and the Lakers are in the middle of the playoff seeding for now.
- The Sacramento Kings still suck. The team that has never won anything and never will is again wallowing at the bottom of the standings. Why did they fire Rick Adelman again? I also have heard some calls for the return of Chris Webber.
