The 2012-13 regular season is heading into the home stretch, and three of California’s four teams are neck deep in postseason intrigue (leaving only Sacramento, a city and franchise dealing with plenty of intrigue even without any playoff hopes). What does the landscape look like with about 20 games to play?
But if you’re Mark Cuban, and Chris Paul let it be known that he wanted to come play for you and with Dirk Nowitzki, do you make a run at him? Or would you go out and try to use the available cap space on, say, Al Jefferson and Brandon Jennings?
We don’t know what we would do either. What we do know is that once the trading deadline passes, most NBA teams (and fans) immediately set their sights on June’s draft and the beginning of the free agency period.
Roto standings are bunching up and the Head-to-Head playoffs are looming. There are daily leagues at DraftStreet for fun and profit; our Freeroll there is always worth entering because the price is right, but it’s at least a 1,000-1 shot and your odds are many times better in cash leagues, where I’ve been doing pretty well the last couple of months.
Now what, Pop?
With Tony Parker out for a month, do you turn to the French rookie (Nando DeColo) … or the Aussie speedster (Patty Mills)?
And yes, we agree with your statement that Parker should be given major consideration for every award out there, and yes, we agree that there hasn’t been an NBA point guard who has done as much for his team as Parker has done for the Spurs.
