  1. Nurk's fouls were a factor, but only so far. He finished with four fouls, while Collins ended with five. That means that at some point Collins had as many fouls as or more fouls than Nurkic, and Stotts decided to play Zach over Nurk anyway. I think that Collins's superb effort is what kept him on the court last night. Two of his blocks were legit chase-downs where it would have been easy to give up on the play, and he showed Stotts that he deserves opportunities. That said, he's probably going to be up and down this season.
  2. Enes Kanter. Bizarre tidbit, according to basketball-reference's unofficial play-by-play stats, Bamba played 100% of his minutes last game at point guard. We should petition Yahoo for position eligibility.
  3. 6 points, 6 rebs, 2 asts, a game-high +26, and . . . 6 blocks in the Blazers win. A promising start to the season.
  4. John Wick, actually. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9912877/
  5. Lots of overreactions in here. It was a bad shooting night, and he got into foul trouble (on a couple of bogus calls), so this wasn't really a good indicator of who he is going to be this season.
  6. Boban Marjanovic is getting extended run in the first half. Grab him now or cry when he's pounding your face in the fantasy finals.
  7. 1/1230th of the way through the NBA season, he's the best player we've seen so far.
  8. Even without getting into methodology, BBM projections have an obvious flaw in that they are behind a paywall. They would have to give you a significant advantage over other projections such as fb-ninja's or Adam Stock's at Elite Fantasy Basketball (my personal favorite, beside my own) in order to be worthwhile. It is dubious whether any projections, by their very nature, are able to provide such an advantage.
  9. Yes. Porter's versatility makes him a fit for any team, and we was top 40 in any build you care to name last season. You got a third- or even second-rounder at the end of the sixth round.
  10. Preseason averages: 11.5 points, 6.25 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.75 steals, 1.25 blocks, 2 TOs, 1.25 threes, 58.6% from the field on 7.25 attemps, 70% from the line on 2.5 attempts. Granted it's preseason, but that's around sixth- or seventh-round value.
  11. I don't see anyone on the wire who absolutely needs to be rostered in a 10-teamer. I would stand pat but be ready to drop Brown if a hot FA comes along.
  12. Yeah, I already pulled the trigger on this trade. I have plenty of assists, and Porter has way too much dynasty upside to let the opportunity go by.
  13. You jinxed the whole damn team, man. Counter-prediction: Every Spur who touches the ball will suffer an injury and miss at least six weeks.
  14. I'd grab Pau Gasol first, if he's available. They almost have to run the offense through him.
