I hope you guys are enjoying the NBA’s All-Star festivities in New Orleans so far. I, for one, have trouble finding the time and energy to care about glorified pick-up games like the Celebrity Game, the Rising Stars Challenge and, well, the All-Star Game itself, though the Three-Point Shootout and the Slam Dunk Contest should be fun.
In any case, what would All-Star weekend be without a short week of meaningful NBA action to precede it? That truncation made for an interesting finish between my Derrick Rosie O’Donnells and Adam Fromal’s Aggressive Layups…
The Derrick Rosie O’Donnells
The Aggressive Layups
…interesting because MY D-RODs WON! WE WON! WOOOOOOOOT!!
For those of you keeping score at home, that means I’ve come out on the right side of the ledger for three weeks running. Not bad for a squad that, by and large, was auto-drafted.
I’d say I can’t wait to see what happens next week, when my D-RODs take on Team Foster, but I’d be lying. The fact is, I’m much more excited for the Daryl Morey fever dream that is All-Star Saturday than I am for another fit of fantasy basketball.
And, frankly, so should all of you.
