Looks like Brook and Robin Lopez of Stanford are declaring for the NBA Draft. I personally love these guys and I thought they alone would propel Stanford to the Final Four. But even better is the news that Robin Lopez is dating Michelle Wie. Someone should’ve told the Stanford student/professional golfer that she’s dating the less-talented Lopez brother–I mean Brook might be able to land a huge contract, but how’s Robin gonna compete with the $19 million Wie made in 2007. Here’s to hoping Robin gets drafted with the 25th pick by San Antonio and Wie sits next to Eva Longoria at games. But I digress, onto the pickup of the night:
This guy has been straight ballin’ as of late. I don’t even know what was most impressive about his line last night. The 2 points? The 1-5 shooting? Nah, it’s definitely the three personal fouls. George is owned in 0% of ESPN leagues, but with a season average of three and a half points per game, I think you should pick him up before your opponent does. APRIL FOOLS. Devean George’s game last night was the worst rated line of the night last night as rated by Basketball Monster. I personally don’t like him and I would never consider picking him up. Check him out looking like a fool in this interview, by the way.
The Real Pickup of The Night: C.J. MILES
This is the guy who’s been starting for the injured Andrei Kirilenko. He’s a Guard-Forward that can hit the long ball. Last night he had a spectacular game, scoring 29 points, with 4 boards and 5 dimes. He had 17 looks at the basket and hit 12 of those shots. He’s started in each of the last 3 games for Utah, so look at him for a potential pickup this week while the Jazz are banged up. Oh and am I the only one that thinks he looks like a young Ray Allen in this pic?
A big man out in Miami, Anthony is a defensive beast. Last night he blocked 6 shots and forced 3 steals. He’s not much of a scorer (only 5 points), but he was also able to bring down 9 boards for the Heat. Most importantly to me, though, Anthony played 31 minutes last night, so it looks as if Riley (or whoever the heck is there coaching games if he’s gone) is looking to play him more off the bench. I don’t think he’s a pickup this week, but watch his play and consider him for next if you need defensive peripheral stats.
