We’ve looked back on the best players at each position from the 2010 fantasy basketball season. Now we’re preparing to steal a few glimpses at the 15 best rookies of 2010. Everyone has their preferred way to steal glimpses. Some put on dark sunglasses, others find reflective surfaces like storefront windows or iPad screens so as not to look directly at the subject you want to see, and yet others preemptively stare at the empty space their glimpse-able object will inhabit until they walk right into it and, whoops, it was just an accident that you were glimpsing!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fantasy-wise, defensive stoppers don’t get much respect. Chances are if you’re known for defense, it’s because you’re not known for offense. There may be a spot for you in a real team’s rotation, but not my fantasy team. While offensive stats make up six-and-a-half categories in most leagues (we’re splitting rebounds in half – I don’t truly know where rebounds should go.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve got a bit of a Good News / Bad News situation. The Bad News is that the NBA regular season is finished, and with it, your fantasy team – rendering all your strategery as useless as a neck full of Mardi Gras beads in March.Please, blog, may I have some more?

As the 2010 fantasy basketball season drifts farther and farther away from us and teams like the Wolves, Kings and Wizards seem like a distant stupid gag played on us in between Lakers games and Bulls matches. Before we completely forget about the pre-postseason NBA league, let’s take a look back on the little guys – the point guards – who in this case are literally the little guys.Please, blog, may I have some more?
You asked for it, you get it. Don’t get used to it though. Just because I wear belly shirts and blink a lot does not mean I’m a genie. I grilled up some salmon, put a Vicki Carr record on and toiled away the hours updating Razzball’s Top 200 for head-to-head leagues.Please, blog, may I have some more?
You gotta have a draft day routine; the things you do or eat or wear to ensure you’re in the best possible zone while picking players that you will spend the next nine months swearing at. What do you mean Troy Murphy might miss the start of the season?Please, blog, may I have some more?
A friend of mine got married this summer. None of us groomsmen discussed what we’d wear, but it seemed pretty obvious. After a lifetime of burpin’ and fartin’ and wedgies, it was only appropriate that we’d all wear our tuxedo t-shirts and jeans.Please, blog, may I have some more?
