Week 2 Preview

The best advice that I can give you after Week 1 is to not panic. A two or three game sample size does not mean much regardless of how good or bad a player has looked. That’s not to say that we should completely ignore the first week of the season. Rotations are becoming much …

Well, that was fun. Despite no truly elite player being up for grabs, free agency did not disappoint. Who would have thought that LaMarcus Aldridge leaving the Blazers for the Spurs would be overshadowed by a Twitter emoticon war that was followed by a 26-year-old multi-millionaire being babysat by other multi-millionaires.

Blocks are very difficult to find as they tend to be concentrated among just a handful of players. In 2013-2014, only four players, Serge Ibaka, DeAndre Jordan, Anthony Davis, and Roy Hibbert averaged over two blocks a night.
