Just Because: Not-So-Block Party


Happy Monday, all.

I just wanted to draw your attention to our man Kelly Dwyer’s post over at Yahoo! that breaks down a list of players with more blocks this season than the Newest Knick, Zach Randolph.

His post breaks down just a few players from the Western Conference.  And no, we’re not talking Tim Duncan and Yao Ming here…One name on the list?  Dan Dickau.  Seriously.  Dan Dickau…of 10 minutes per night fame.  Click Here for the rest, and a big thanks to whichever commenter pointed out that Daniel Gibson (six), all of 6’2” has three times the blocks that Randolph (two) has thus far.

Big thanks to Henry over at TrueHoop for the tip!

(Update: Here’s the link to the Eastern Conference)



Have you read some of the comments Kelly has been getting on his Yahoo blog?

Harsh!  He’s a regular contributer on the Bulls RealGM board too, and everyone over there is a little shocked by the hate.

Glad you’re giving Kelly a little love at DD!

Thanks for the comment.

If you’re short on boards, I wouldn’t look to move Dalembert - he’s averaging a decent amount.

Gordon and Stojakovic would be ideal fits for someone who lacks threes - but you will not be able to pull a top notch player for either of them.

Cheaper sources of boards that I would look at include Jamario Moon, Jeff Foster, and even Reggie Evans.

I wouldn’t trade for Martin, as you’re buying pretty high following his huge game this weekend.  Aldridge would be nice, but his boards aren’t too ideal for his size and he’ll cost a lot due to his hype.

Does this help?
