Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show: Bad Raps

Jose Calderon and DeMar DeRozan

The Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show on Wednesday night touched on many of Wednesday night’s early games. Greg joined Jeff first to discuss Serge Ibaka’s 10 blocks, followed by – what else? – some whining about our fantasy teams. The Nets were the next topic of discussion, which led naturally to a roundtable on the future of Dwight Howard as Tom joined the show about 22 minutes in. From there the fellas talked about the pitiful Raptors, the up-and-down Rockets and the crazy rotations of the Spurs. And much more! Thanks for listening – the link’s after the jump.

Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show: Weird Wednesday

Andray Blatche

The latest Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show taped on Wednesday night, after the early games, so Jeff and Tom start out discussing the strange stat line of Tyrus Thomas, the awful Bobcats and the potential of the Wizards post-Flip Saunders. The also touch upon the Nets upsetting the Sixers in Philly and whether or not 76ers can be trusted in fantasy. Next up was the Miami-Detroit game, which featured an Austin Daye breakout. Or did it? Andrew Bogut’s injury and Ersan Ilyasova’s big game were next, and then Greg came on about 20 minutes in with yet another epic Knicks rant focusing on the loss to the Cavaliers. Tom checked out, but Jeff and Greg still had things to say about David Kahn, Kevin Love and the strange ways of the Timberwolves. Enjoy!

Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show: Buyin’ or Sellin’?

It’s a Jeff & Greg production on this week’s Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show. The two put on their thinking caps and immediately got cases of lice. It’s been a while. On the agenda is discussion of some possible “sell high” and “buy low” targets. The hot starts of Joe Johnson, Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon, DJ Augustin and Mario Chalmers are debated, as well as the poor showings from Joakim Noah, DeMar DeRozan and Luis Scola. If you can get past these two Kobe haters gloating over a LeBron-led Heat win over the Lakers, you’ll find a show chock-full of knowledge. Bug free!

Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show: Everybody Beats the Wiz

Jeff and Tom manned the controls for the latest Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show. For some reason, they spent the first seven minutes on the Wizards. Perhaps they like an underdog story! Mostly it was just amazement at how bad they are, how Andray Blatche’s shoulder injury might be more of a head injury, and how Trevor Booker might not be that bad of a pickup. Derrick Rose’s injury is another topic of discussion, and the guys touch upon Serge Ibaka’s struggles, Chris Kaman’s rejuvenation and the future of the Minnesota backcourt. Thanks for listening!

Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show: Memphis Blues

Time for another Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show, and with the news that Zach Randolph is out eight weeks, who better to discuss it than the resident Grizzlies expert, Tom Lorenzo? Only Tom was late, leaving Jeff and Greg to flail around without a net until about the 22-minute mark. Okay, so it wasn’t that bad – we hope. You get your traditional Knicks rant from Greg, detailed reaction to all the latest injuries, and suggestions on who might be worth picking up in the wake of Wednesday night’s action. It’s a very special show when all three guys are on, so download and savor it! Continue reading

Damn Lies Fantasy Hoops Show: Experts Draft Analysis

Jeff and Tom participated in the Yahoo! Friends & Family league with 10 other experts in the industry. The format was nine-category rotisserie. Tom had the seventh pick (Stephen Curry), Jeff the 10th (Pau Gasol). They convened Friday night to discuss their picks and strategies. Jeff clearly had the better draft, but then again he’s writing this blurb and is biased. Who do you think came out on top? Have a listen, and good luck drafting, everyone! Continue reading
