Quote of the day
"They can play, get paid [in China] and return to the NBA in March. Or they can not get paid, and return to the NBA in March." -- unnamed Chinese team official, commenting on NBA players who signed deals to play in the Chinese Basketball Association
Many fantasy football leagues are approaching their playoff rounds. For example, week #13 is the final regular season week for the RIFC and related qualifying leagues. The playoffs are held during weeks 14-16, using a simple 8-team single elimination tournament. For teams that are still fighting to advance, itís make or break time. For better or worse, my RIFC team has already locked up a berth, although I could still be seeded anywhere from 1-8. I wish there was a way I could rest my players this week!
NBA trade and free agent talk has begun in earnest. With less than four weeks until opening day, a lot of pent up player movement, and a very limited preseason schedule, itís going to be very tricky to evaluate player performance in advance. Glad Iím not in the business of projecting player stats based on the fundamentals!
