Pickup of the Night: March 14

JASON WILLIAMS
Yes, he shoots a terrible percentage. Sure, he plays on the worst team in the NBA. But with Dwyane Wade shut down for the season last week, Williams has begun to log more minutes and more shots. He took 26 shots and made 14 of them against the Orlando Magic. Williams also recorded 34 points, 5 threes, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists while only turning the ball over twice (and the word “only” should be included here, as Williams has been less than careful with the ball in his career). So if he is available in your league, consider picking him up. He seems to be one of the only players trying on a pathetic team.

Second Best: THABO SEFOLOSHA
For those of you who have been paying attention to the Fantasy Basketball Pros, you should know who Sefolosha is. Although the Bulls backcourt is full of average players (Hinrich, Gordon, Hughes, bums like this), Sefolosha has the length that they all lack and should see more playing time. His line against the 76ers (who staged a huge comeback): 20 points, 8-13 from the field, 2-3 from the line, 2 threes, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 2 turnovers in only 23 minutes. Now if you extrapolate that to about 45 minutes, he’s Kobe Bryant. Not bad. By the way, as a Bulls fan, I’ve decided to start rooting against the team in hopes of getting a lottery pick instead of losing in 4 games to the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. As part of that, though, I want to see the youngsters play.

  1. I like your extrapolating. My fear with Thabo is simply that Jim Boylan will penalize him for playing well. The rotation in Chicago is a complete disaster. And once you pick him up, Boylan will send him down to the women’s D-League.We’ll see. Owning a Bull this year is the most frustrating thing in basketball.

  2. yeah i agree about your assessment of owning a bull this year. i drafted deng in one league and held onto him, but have dropped hinrich, tt, nocioni, noah, joe smith, and drew gooden in various leagues. this year is more frustrating than those rebuilding years since there was so much potential for this team.
