Quote of the day
"Did we need this? Are you kidding me? I mean we were 3-40. That's not a tough question to answer." -- Nets center Brook Lopez, after a 16-point win over the Clippers
I figured that New Jersey’s win might provide a good quote of the day, but I may have chosen the wrong one. Perhaps I should have used this one from Baron Davis: “Words can't even describe this.”
Pau Gasol has been a popular pickup since he returned from his latest injury. And he’s been doing OK, averaging 39 TSNP/game in seven games. But that doesn’t even make him the most productive Gasol over that period, as brother Marc has averaged 41.1 TSNP/game over the same period, and at TSN prices, costs about 65% as much as Pao. So which Gasol is more valuable? Granted, Pau’s fantasy point average for the full season is modestly better (Pau: 40.6, Marc: 35.9), but Marc is making it a horse race.
GuruGolf is off and running for the first and only preseason event. More than 100 teams have assembled a foursome for this “just for practice” event, with Phil Mickelson as the popular hometown favorite, on more than 25% of all GuruGolf foursomes. As a reminder, this tournament will be held on two different courses for the first two rounds, so scorecards for those rounds will be matched based on course, rather than round number.

The Brothers Gasol are equally good and equally entertaining IMHO. Pau gets the most ink...and probably deservingly so since he is on a World Championship team....but I really think that Marc has really made his, well, mark, this year and may prove to the better of the two when it's all said and done.

I like the Davis quote even better. Glad you included two today!
