The Laker Train!!

         So as the Laker Train continues on its track to a championship, another path is being walked by Dwight Howard. Now the heir to the “original” Superman, Dwight must come to grips with all that has happened. He requested a trade to the Brooklyn Nets earlier in the summer, that obviously didn’t happen so now he is in Los Angeles. Does anyone remember Howard refusing to take the road Shaquille O’Neal took years ago? I sure do! He said he would never do it, but look where he is, he is in Hollywood.

 

Funny this trade to happen this week as I am currently on vacation here in LA. Two hours ago I walked out on my street next to our house to get something from the car. I had been keeping in tune with all the trade rumors this evening, but I was disappointed to find out the Magic preferred the Rockets offer. I kinda just gave up on it then. So anyway I’m out on the street and I hear this guy yelling, “we got Dwight!!!!!” I was so happy along with the rest of Tinkertown, but I was happy for a different reason.

 

I am happy cause the drama is over, Dwight left Orlando and everyone is happy now. I am also happy to be rooting for Dwight knowing that he will stay with that team. About the Laker Train, the Lakers look like the best in the West as of now. With a HOF point guard, shooting guard, great defensive small forward, All-Star power forward, and HOF center. The Showtime can start again, just think Nash is Magic, Kobe as James Worthy, and Dwight Howard now playing the backup star role that Kareem played. Why do I like this team? They really are an image of Showtime Lakers.

The Lakers look great, all they need to do is figure out how to get Phil Jackson back and dump Mike Brown. Am I dissing Mike Brown? Of course not. I completely respect Brown and his coaching, but if they could get Phil back it would be great!!

This team = one Championship

The New Boston Celtics

I see why they call it fantasy basketball, because those teams can get really good. I currently am leading my entire league in almost every category, without the help of the injured A’mare Stoudemire. Lets take a look at my team, The New Boston Celtics.

PG Rajon Rondo

Rondo has been amazing, as of late. He is currently the best fantasy point guard, a steal that I drafted in the third round.

SG Kobe Bryant

Kobe has had a steady start to the season, even though he disappointed me last night with minus six points.

SF LeBron James

King James is unstoppable, can’t say much more.

PF A’mare Stoudemire

Even though he is injured right now, I have expected much from A’mare ever since I traded for him. I am sure he will not disappoint me.

C Emeka Okafor

Emeka started slaying people ever since I got him. I traded for him after he had a few bad games to start the season.

G Stephen Curry

Curry was also traded for when he was injured. It turns out though, that he played the night I got him. Stephen is the beast.

F Marvin Williams

My dad picked up Marv before I had a chance, but later dropped him for Darren Collison. I am so happy to have M-Will, they say he is supposed to have his best season ever. For a guy that was picked before CP3 and D-Will, Marvin will have to average at almost twenty fantasy points a game. He is doing that right now so I think its gonna happen.

UTIL Ray Allen

I traded for Ray Ray along with Okafor and can say that Ray is dead on almost every shot.

UTIL DeAndre Jordan

I was hooked on DeAndre ever since the eight block game. He will be a dominating center in the near future.

UTIL Ricky Rubio

I really didn’t know what to expect from Ricky, but his assists are good enough for me. I was gonna drop him, but after the Miami game, I learned he could also shoot the lights out. He is the closest thing to “Pistol” Pete Maravich, so I want him.

Upgraded Team

I have already told you of my new fantasy basketball team, but wanted to let you know which star player, I have accquired recently. I made many moves after the draft for an elite power forward, who came as A’mare Stoudamire. I traded DeMarcus Cousins and Brandon Jennings, one hour after the draft, for Chris Bosh. I am a Bosh fan, but decided I needed a person who wasn’t the third option on their team. I had negotiated with Nik, from The News Of Sports, for quite a while, when we finally reached an agreement. I traded him Brandon Roy and Chris Bosh, for Josh Smith and Antwan Jamison. This trade turned out to be a steal for me, as Roy announced his retirement shortly after. I held on to Jamison for a couple of days until I got my friend to give me Roy Hibbert and Tim Duncan for Antwan and his Cavs buddy, Anderson Varejao. As soon as I got Hibbert, I worked a blockbuster deal with my friend, Kiefer. I traded him Corey Magette, Josh Smith, Nene Hilario, and my roll from lunch, for A’mare and DeAndre Jordan. My starting line up is now as follows:

PG Rajon Rondo

SG Kobe Bryant

SF LeBron James

PF A’mare Stoudamire

C Roy Hibbert

I have been working now to gain an elite center, such as Al Jefferson or Dwight Howard, but am getting less and less closer because other owners know that that is setting me up for a championship. The most important thing to remember is that trading is one of the biggest moves you can make in any fantasy game.


My Basketball Team

Well, you know how I asked about LeBron as my first pick right? Now it became a reality. I just drafted my team and am very excited to kick off my season. Here is my team as of right now with some info on each player.

PG Rajon Rondo

It was easy to pick Rondo. He is an assist machine. After you read about the next two players, you will know why I didn’t need another scorer. I have been looking at Rajon all week as a player and got him with the 23rd pick so I thought it was a pretty good deal.

SG Kobe Bryant

I am normally not a fan of Kobe, but I traded up in the second round to get a scorer to go with my next player. I still think Kobe is a major fantasy threat.

SF LeBron James

                       I am a big LeBron fan and wanted to change it up, as I had Kevin Durant last year. Nothing you can say about LeBron, as a fantasy player, since the playoffs have nothing to do with fantasy.

PF DeMarcus Cousins

Why I picked Cousins? Simple. Lots of rebounds, lots of points, and a bad team. Any other questions?                                                                                                                                                                                                            

                                                                                                                                                                                             

C Nene Hilario

I just can’t get enough Nene. He has been one of my favorite players for a long time and still is. You got to choose someone you really like.

That is my team in a nutshell. If you would like to know who is on my bench, just ask on the comments.

Thanks


Kobe Haters

I absolutely dislike Kobe Bryant, but I still admit he is a great player.                                                                         With five rings and multiple all-star appearances, who wouldn’t say he isn’t great? The answer to that question is, other NBA players. Well that probably isn’t true that they thikn he is horrible, but some absolutely despise Bryant. The NBA players that hate Kobe them most have to be these guys though:

 

 

 

 

                                                              Richard “Rip” Hamilton

Ever since the 2004 NBA Finals Rip and Kobe have been on each other. That year the Los Angles Lakers were playing the Detroit Pistons, two of the best teams, two of the worst cities. The Lakers were set to win after championships in 2000- 02, but were almost sweeped by the Pistons, led by Rip and his buddy, Chauncey Billups, otherwise known as “Mr. Clutch.” Even lately Rick has fouled out in games played against the Lakers.

                                                      Brandon Jennings

We never really knew that Brandon disliked Kobe this much until yahoo.com posted this photo.

       This picture clearly states young point guard Jenning’s thoughts about LA Lakers superstar, Kobe Bryant. I hope Under Armour is selling these shirts because I want one.


Durant to Turkey “Dream Team”

I wrote an article about LA Lakers superstar, Kobe Bryant, heading to Turkey to join already signed player D-Will, but now this team is looking at Oklahoma City star, Kevin Durant.

If you hven’t seen my title, “Dream Team”, this lets you know that this team when completed will be like a dream to Turkish fans. Turkey is not a country known for its’ basketball players, but if this goes through, they will be soon. Don’t expect Durant to sign up right away though because he is also looking at Russia and Spain.                                             ESPN will soon be telivising international league games on tv for sure.


Kobe with D-Will

www.yahoo.com/nba has done alot if talking about LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant heading to Turkey to play with NJ Nets star Deron Williams. If this goes through the other Turkey teams would have to get some better players because a championship would be in the bag for this all-star duo.
