After a scorching start to the season in the FLuD Watches “Barksdale & Bell” fantasy basketball league, Team SneakerNews has recently cooled off in a major way. As of late, the squad has fallen on hard times, dropping three of our last five contests and slipping from second place all the way down to fourth thanks to this week’s crushing 2-7 loss to IM King. We’ll be looking to bounce back this week as we take on TeamTITS who just passed us in the standings. It won’t be easy with two of our major contributors – Eric Gordon and Emeka Okafor – sidelined with injuries, leaving us seriously short-handed while we await their recoveries. Keep reading to check out some new pics of the current roster, and check back next week to see if we’re able to overcome the injury bug and right the ship.
TEAM SNEAKERNEWS WEEK 15 MVP
Josh Smith – Despite the recent struggles of Team SN, Josh Smith continues to put up steady numbers across the board. This week’s averages of 19 points, 11 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 2.3 blocks per game may not have been enough to prevent a loss for the team, but they were more than good enough to earn Week 15 Team MVP honors.
