I got Brand in my fantasy team and his stats have been very useful. He missed a game today with a bruised hip, which sucks. Hopefully not getting an Allstar nod will piss him off and he'll get even better numbers.
I'm okay with having the Heels having one really shitty season. It's a new coach, let him build his own Dynasty now. Unfortunately, it'll take a long time to get all those records back into a respectable position. Here's hoping we do something SPECTACULAR and somehow make the NCAA's so we don't break that streak...
Nonsense. All North Carolina (6-14) has to do is win the ACC tournament, which means they'll more than likely have to get past Maryland (18-3), Wake Forest, North Carolina State (both 17-6) and #1 Duke (21-1).
Heh heh heh.
On second thought... the Heels might make a good run at “winning” last place in the ACC. Remember, North Carolina fans-- losing isn't a BAD thing... it's a GOOD thing.

You can't say yet, though. If Chandler is Garnett or Kobe, then that's better than Brand. It's a high standard to be better than Brand for sure, and obviously Krause has a lot of confidence in his ability to evaluate high school kids. But, maybe he's right. We don't know yet.
Yeah, his career is finished as Portland did not extend Oden's contract (no surprise there). But it is a shame considering the time he played last season, he averaged about 11 ppg and 8 boards to go along with 2.5 bpg.
