Origin Of Chosen 2

So there's this guy named LeBron James, and before he even played a single minute in the NBA, a lot of writers in the media already declared him: 'King James'. Currently, James is in his mid 20's, and many argue that he is the greatest basketball player to have ever stepped on the hardwood. I personally agree; I think that he is the greatest basketball player of all time- surpassing guys like Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird, Oscar Robertson and Kobe Bryant.

His athleticism is unmatched throughout the history of the league. No one has ever seen such an unstoppable force. He plows through traffic and rises higher than anyone on the court- gazing down at others as though he were a god. He makes NBA professionals look like mere mortals.

Hello And Welcome!

Hello. Hi. If you don't know who I am, my name is David Yang (praedurum). Last year, my friend Abraham Lee (mad36) and I decided to start a blog dedicated to fantasy basketball. At the time, we were pretty obsessed about it. Fantasy basketball constituted a good chunk of our lives over the course of the basketball season (and the off-season, too, now that I think about it). We wrote daily about the happenings of the NBA, its players, their statistics, and what it all meant.

However, writing about fantasy basketball on a daily basis was too demanding,- so we stopped.

Writing a post every single day is too much writing for me. From this point on, I'll write weekly posts.

Where Four Poor Teams Play On Thanksgiving (Day 31)

Two games on Thanksgiving night. In the first, the Atlanta Hawks rolled the Wizards, 116-96, behind Josh Smith's all around line of 20 points on 8-14 shooting, 4-4 free throws, with 14 boards, 5 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Joe Johnson (21 points on 8-16 shooting, 3-5 treys, 2-2 free throws, with 5 boards, 5 assists, no turnovers) was typical Joe Johnson, and Al Horford (15 points on 6-11 shooting, 3-3 free throws, with 13 rebounds, a steal and 2 blocks) had a double-double, as well. The Wizards were led by Gilbert Arenas and his 21, 6 and 8, with 4 treys and 3 steals.

Where The Wolves Are Fun To Watch (Day 30)

Kevin Love (32 points on 11-19 shooting, 9-9 free throws, with 22 boards and 3 assists, with a trey) continued his torrid rebounding spree, and Darko Milicic (22, 8 and 4, on 10-17 shooting with 5 blocks) had another solid line, but the Wolves blew a 21-point lead and fell to the Spurs in overtime, 113-109. San Antonio won their 12th straight, as they were led by Manu Ginobili's 26 points on 8-17 shooting, 4-10 treys, 6-7 free throws, with 6 boards, 6 assists, 2 steals and a block. To be honest, before the season started, I viewed the Timberwolves' organization as a joke. Even the Wolves' organization didn't take itself seriously. But ever since the whole Wes Johnson/Kevin Love failed handshake, the documentary following it, Darko and Michael Beasley's resurgence, and the whole minutes issue being resolved, the Wolves have become- well, somewhat competitive and quite fun to watch.

Dirk Nowitzki exploded tonight for 42 points on 13-23 shooting, 3-3 treys, 13-16 free throws, with 12 boards, an assist, and 2 blocks, with only 1 turnover, as he led the Mavs to a comeback victory over the Pistons, 88-84. For Detroit, Rodney Stuckey (19 points on 4-8 shooting, 10-10 free throws, with 5 boards, 3 assists, and only 1 turnover) and Tayshaun Prince (19 and 5 on 9-13 shooting, with a block and no turnovers) were solid.

Where Melo Plays Against The Warriors (Day 28)

I don't know if you've noticed, but it seems as though almost half the daily top performers happen to be playing against the Warriors the night they post their monster line. (Though, according to's Ease Rankings, Minnesota, Phoenix, Los Angeles [Clippers], and Memphis are better match-ups overall.) Carmelo Anthony took advantage of the Warriors for 39 points on 10-24 shooting, 2-4 treys, 17-17 free throws, with 9 boards, 5 assists, and 2 steals, to lead the Nuggets over Golden State, 106-89. Al Harrington chipped in 19 points on 7-13 shooting, 5-7 treys, with 8 boards and 4 assists, with no turnovers, against his former team. For Golden State, Stephen Curry had 17, 7 and 5, with a trey and 3 steals.
