I joined a free yahoo league. Good thing I don't put money on these types of things as I don't know what I'm doing. I ended up with the "aging superstars" squad with Kobe Bryant and Dwayne Wade. Wade has been doing adequate but Kobe is not even playing that much. Looks like he may be nearing his retirement date.
For younger ones I have Jimmy Butler - he has had some good games but is inconsistent.
And my team always loses on 3 points made. I didn't plan well for that.
So 2 records are on the line in the last few games of the regular season. The Spurs can go perfect 41-0 at home if they win 2 more games. They have the Golden State Warriors at home on Sunday, and OKC Thunder on Tuesday. Both should be hard games.
The next record coincides with above. Shockingly, the Warriors have dropped a couple games lately to the Celtics and the Timberwolves at home. (Which stopped them from also shooting for perfect from home)
Breaking the Bulls record of 72 wins looks a lot more difficult now. They need to run the table in the last 4 games and beat the Spurs twice and Memphis Grizzlies twice. I am not thinking it can happen now but that Spurs home game should really be something. They could be the 2nd team to get 70 wins if they don't tie or break the Bulls' record.
Stephon Curry is likely the greatest 3-point shooter who has lived to date. I have never seen someone shoot the way he does. He has ridiculous range and an absurdly quick release. I was rooting for the Spurs but can't take any credit from GSW.
I'm also wondering if any old-timers are retiring after this year besides Kobe Bryant. Tim Duncan is a shadow of his former self. Kevin Garnett has hardly been playing this season.
