Fantasy Bucket: This Ish is Real

By Elvis Gutierrez

While the Detroit Pistons made a big front office move by trading for Blake Griffin, their replacement PG, Ish Smith, is making big moves on the court. Him and other guys in this week’s Fantasy Bucket!

First Bottle: Ish Smith

This Ish is pretty good until Reggie Jackson comes back. And when that ish happens, then this ish is over. But this week, Ish Smith was rolling with averages of 19 ppg, 6 apg, 4 rpg, and 2 spg. Enjoy this Ish while it lasts.

 

Second Bottle: Ricky Rubio

He has been in a bad slump to start the year but now, the boy they call RICKKKKYYYY is heating up in a big way. He averaged 24 ppg, 10 apg, 5 rpg, 2.3 3s, and 1 spg for the week and has won his fantasy owners’ hearts all over again.

 

Third Bottle: Nic Batum

Similar to RICKKKKYYYYY, Nic Batum has been on a brutal slump to start the year. He was making me look bad as I was talking him up on an episode of Grassroots only to get injured the next week and stunk it up when he came back. But this week, Batum validated himself (and I) with averages of 21 ppg, 7 rpg, 5 apg, and 4 3s. It looks like he went back to his baguette and butter.

 

Fourth Bottle: Tommy Satoransky

Tommy Satoransky replaced the injured John Wall in the starting lineup this week, and he didn’t disappoint if you rolled the dice on him. He averaged 11 ppg, 5.3 apg, 4 rpg, 1 3ptmg, and 2 spg. If you get to know Tommy, I’m sure you’ll like him. Pick Tommy up.

 

Fifth Bottle: Mario Hezonja

Many so-called experts have already labeled Hezonja a bust after just a few years in the league. But this week, he took advantage of another Aaron Gordon injury by averaging 15 ppg, 4 rpg, 2.3 apg, 3.3 3s, 1 spg, and .7 bpg. Hezon-fire!!!
