[quote]1) Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints: The eight-time Pro Bowler was absolutely brilliant under pressure in 2013, posting a 118.0 passer rating (69.2 percent completion rate, 15:3 TD-to-INT ratio) when trailing by eight points or fewer. Brees also sparkled last fall in the red zone (23:1 TD-to-IN...

[quote]Gordon hasn’t blown anybody away. But he has shown steady improvement, if only sporadic spectacular bursts to the bucket. He describes his season as “OK,” yet at 15.8 points a game and shooting 38.9 percent from deep, he’s been the Pelicans’ most reliable player outside of All-Star power forw...

...I love the E. Gordon for B. Gordon expiring potential deal.
I think it makes a lot of sense for both teams...looks like the Bobcats are going after Evan Turner first, but Gordon could be a fall-back.

I think The Sopranos is my favorite show -- better than Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and The Wire (loved all of these as well).
Am I crazy? Is this just the effect I'm getting because I'm watching this show currently (I'm almost done season 3)?

I like to mess around with this and try to see realistically what's going to be going down minutes-wise.
Those of you with big hopes for Rivers, Pierre Jackson, Darius Miller, and Withey might need to re-think things.
Here's my breakdown:
Holiday 35 MPG
Gordon 30 MPG (lol, I know)
