Former Hopkins standout Chambers to miss 2015-16 season at Harvard

Tough news for local basketball product Siyani Chambers.

The star Harvard guard out of Hopkins High School tore the ACL in his left knee and will miss the 2015-16 season with the Crimson.

According to the Boston Globe, Chambers will "take a voluntary leave of absence during the 2015-16 academic year" and return to the team for the 2016-17 season. He will also complete his degree in sociology.

Chambers would have been a senior captain this season and the top returning scorer (9.9 points, 4.3 assists, 1.5 steals per game last season) for the Crimson.

After winning big school state titles with the Royals in 2010 and 2011 and a third place finish in 2012, Chambers was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year and First Team All-Ivy League in 2013.

Naked fantasy football loser in Minneapolis is your daily inspiration

You can find motivation in the strangest places. This morning's dose comes from our friends at Deadspin, where you can find this post about a naked or mostly naked fellow walking through the streets of Minneapolis wearing not much more than a cardboard box. The box reads "Fantasy Football Loser."  His friends seen in the background are very much enjoying his walk. We can only assume this is the last-place finisher in that fantasy league, paying up.

This is inspiring. Why? Because we have our Star Tribune fantasy league draft this week, and you probably have a fantasy draft coming up, and, well, really none of us want to end up walking around wearing a box. So, draft well, fellow fantasy geeks ... or at least keep that nice big box the lawnmower came in.
