Quote of the day
"We take teams lightly at times. We play the cat-and-mouse game. Sometimes the cat loses." -- Lakers forward Lamar Odom, after a 5-point loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers
Perhaps if the Cavaliers could play all of their games against teams from Los Angeles, they’d forget about losing LeBron. I know that the Lakers have been off their “A” game recently, but last night’s loss in Cleveland was a stunner.
There was a triple double in the NBA last night, albeit not in Cleveland. Andre Iguodala posted a Kidd-like stat line with 13 points, 10 assists, and 12 rebounds. Iggy was my second round draft pick in the RIHC this year, and he has been modestly disappointing, not even in the YTD top 50 in the ESPN player rater. But on a night when my first round pick, Chris Paul, put up a 8-5-2 triple single, I’m happy to get a solid contribution from #2.
GuruGolf is off and running again, this time for the Northern Trust Open. D.A. Points is the most widely owned golfer, but on less than 19% of rosters. Only ten different golfers appear on at least 10% of rosters, so this looks like a week when differentiation is as wide as it ever gets.
