Matt Bonner Projected to Win Jon Barry MVP

6 04 2009

Each week I look at the top players available in my fantasy basketball league to determine the Jon Barry All-stars, named after waiver wire favorite Jon Barry. At year’s end, the player earning the most Jon Barry points will be named Jon Barry MVP.

Here are the top competitors in the Jon Barry MVP race, with this week’s score and season-long score:

  • Matt Bonner, 1.0, 10.5
  • Jarrett Jack, 0.9, 0.9
  • Rasual Butler, 0.8, 1.6
  • Delonte West, 0.7, 2.9
  • Steve Blake, 0.6, 0.6
  • James Posey, 0, 7.6
  • Udonis Haslem, 0, 4.0

With only a week or so left to play, it’s safe to say that Matt Bonner will win the Jon Barry MVP trophy.  Congratulations to Matt, who will also star in an upcoming film with Jon Barry, who’s actually just one of Ali G’s alter-egos.

Meanwhile, here are the standings in my lone fantasy basketball league:

  • League leader: 92 points
  • 2nd place: 75 points
  • My team: 71.5 points
  • 4th place 68.5 points

Thus it’s also safe to project that the Hurricane and I will not win our league, after a moderately disastrous season.  2nd and 4th are both remote possibilities, but we likely finish 3rd.  Next year, when planning our draft, I plan to experiment by using Bonner, Posey, Haslem and West as examples of replacement players.
