In the art of blogging for no purpose, I shall post about one of my yahoo! fantasy basketball teams. This team is in a 20 man league where I am currently 5th place and is facing my blogging counterpart this week. I’m currently winning, surprisingly since my team is not really that great.
My team consists of:
– Amar’e Stoudemire (PF,C)
– Shawn Marion (Sf, PF)
– Marc Gasol (C)
– Eric Gordon (SG)
– Andre Miller (PG)
– Shaq (C)
– Anthony Morrow (SG, SF)
– George Hill (PG, SG)
– DeJuan Blair (SF,PF,C)
– DeMar DeRozan (SG,SF,PF)
– Nazr Mohammad (C)
– Donte Green (SG,SF)
– Tony Allen (SG,SF)
The one word I can use to describe this team is INCONSISTENT. Yes, I got Amar’e who can provide over 20 points and 10 rebounds a night but other than that, my team pisses me off. I’m sure all fantasy players can relate but to me, it seems my team is nothing but light switch players. And looking at my team, all I have is a bunch of shooters, no one that can grab me assists, and besides Amar’e, no one that can consistently grab me 10 rebounds a night. It is a travesty.
From bottom to top,
Tony Allen – very inconsistent player who I only picked up because he was doing good in the absence of Paul Pierce. So far, I haven’t found anyone that can replace him and I think Pierce is once again injured so I’ll keep him for a bit to see what he can do. All he does is provide points mostly.
Donte Green – Another person I have only because he can score. Too inconsistent, threw down 31 points several games ago. He’s losing playing time ever since Garcia returned for the Kings so might become useless soon.
Nazr Mohammad – Backup Center for the Bobcats, currently injured, but can be great when he wants. Again, extremely inconsistent. Right before he got injured, he gave me 20 points and 21 rebounds in a night. That’s pretty amazing.
DeMar DeRozan – Another scorer I have. Like Donte Green and Tony Allen, inconsistent as fuck.
DeJuan Blair – Great rebounder but currently been off and not providing the stats that he was giving some weeks ago.
George Hill – Another inconsistent scorer who does not give me any assists whatsoever. Lately he’s been playing well so I can’t complain.
Anthony Morrow – Some weeks he can score over 25 points a game, other weeks, he gives me 25 points period. My team is full of scorers who has on and off nights and Morrow is just another example.
Shaq – Currently injured but was playing well before the injury. I wish he gave me more rebounds though, but I’m satisfied with the 20 or so points a game.
Andre Miller – The only one on my team that can really gets assists and he only averages 5.5. There are some games where can dish out over 10 assists but there’s always a big gap of games in between where he doesn’t do that. But he can score which is fine by me, not as inconsistent as he was in the beginning of the season but feasible.
Eric Gordon – Like Anthony Morrow he can score 25 points a game, but unlike Anthony Morrow, he doesn’t ever score less than 10. Another one of my scoring options, more consistent than the rest of them but still needs fine tuning.
Marc Gasol – Some days he can be like Amar’e, other days, he’s just some Spanish dude taking up roster space. He doesn’t fail with the rebounding though, which is good.
Shawn Marion – Usually one of the best players to have on a fantasy team cause he can do everything but this year, not so much. Consistent scoring, its just never 20 points. Always rebounding, just never over 10 rebounds. And a steal, block, or assist every once in a while. Even though it looks like he doesn’t provide much, he helps keep the team afloat with his consistency.
Amar’e Stoudemire – My star player, a good 25 points and 10 rebounds a game. Usually scores the most points and gets the most rebounds every week unless one of my inconsistent players step for that week. Without him, my team will pretty much suck.
I’m satisfied with my team, I just wished there was a month where they will all play well every single game. But nope, I’m stuck with their ever changing stats.
