It's just been a little over two weeks since the 2019-20 NBA season tipoff but it already provides us with plenty of material for some really fascinating facts and stats:
1.) The Assists Battle LeBron James is the runaway leader in APG early in the season with 11.1 but Malcolm Brogdon edged him 79-78 for the total assist count as the Pacers played their eighth game Thursday.
Four out of the top 5 in APG this season were nowhere near the league leaders in the category last season. Only Russell Westbrook. Read More
1.) Rudy Gobert, C, Utah Jazz (Buy Low) Currently ranked 126th in Yahoo and 66th in the Player Rater, Rudy Gobert is not the top-20 player we projected him to be in a VERY SMALL SAMPLE SIZE.
The rebounds are there (12.0) but since he is dependent on one category (blocks) that is basically non-existent for his standards (1.1), the Stifle Tower is relegated to that very low fantasy ranking. Couple that with an unusually high turnover rate (2.9 per game) and that's a recipe for disaster.

He also helped hold Giannis Antetokonmpo to 12 points on 5-for-16 shooting. 2.) Gasol sighting! ( Brad Penner/USA TODAY Sports via Reuters) Marc Gasol finally woke up and contributed 16-12-7 with 5 blocks in the double-overtime Game 3 win. 3.)

If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle.
