Following Thursday's practice after Wednesday's Game 2 loss, Parker said, "Today, Pop told me if I have to shoot 25 times, I have to shoot 25 times." Parker only took 10 shots during the Game 2 loss as compared to 16 during Game 1 and his season average of 13.4 field goal attempts per game, so it would be a surprise if Parker doesn't up his shot attempts in Game 3 based on his comments.

While we'd pay good money to hear a conversation between Agent Zero and Swaggy P, Arenas hasn't played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season and likely carries quite a bit of baggage in most GM's eyes. He's most recently been playing in China and may have to settle for a return to the Chinese Basketball Association rather than a return to the NBA, so fantasy owners can feel free to look the other way here.

This honor comes as a nice ending to what has been an extremely turbulent year for Collins off the court. He hasn't played in either of the Nets' two playoff games so far, but did speak briefly about being named to the list, "It's a cool honor, but I know I'm not doing this just by myself."
