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 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Daily/weekly player projections for the next 7 days + rest of season projections per game/36M + today’s lineups with integrated projections!
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. The Good News is that it’s never too early […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
In his mammoth tome, The Book of Basketball, a work I begrudgingly call both comprehensive and wholly entertaining, Bill Simmons shares the theory that 24 is the pivotal age for athletic shooting guards. He uses Jordan, Bryant, McGrady, Wade, a 25-year-old Iverson (lost five months as a high school senior sitting in a jail cell) […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There were three guards I remember teasing in the comment sections of Razzball’s preseason posts back in September/October. The first was Mike Conley, the second was Kyle Lowry and Jared Dudley was third. Why? Are you asking me why I taunted these three or why I remember it? And before you clarify, understand that a) […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I suppose I could be a tad blinded by Jeff Teague‘s second-round production in these playoffs, but it’s not as if the 16/2.5/4, with 1.5 steals he’s averaged after four postseason games against the Bulls is somehow disconnected from his future. This time last year, after the Hawks took flight from the postseason, then-coach Mike […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
With apologies to Señior Ramon, the only way we’re going to properly pump Ramon Sessions is to properly dump Baron Davis. It has to be this way. It’s a law of nature. Like women always hanging their handbags at the bend of their elbow despite having two free hands. Or that literature written by women […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Point guards, shooting guards and small forwards have all been accounted for. Now, call this list the “anti-point guards.” With the exception of maybe Boozer, Jamison and Blatche, injuries didn’t dictate the direction this list took. No one here missed more than a dozen games and therefore the difference between the fifth best power forward […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
When people reflect on the 2010-11 playoffs, they’ll think any number of the following thoughts: 1) Bill Simmons probably went nuts jibbering on about Rudy Gay further proving his “Ewing Theory” that sometimes good players make a team worse. 2) The Heat can turn themselves up to 11, they just haven’t had a reason to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We looked at the top 20 shooting guards for 2010 on Monday. Today? The 20 best fantasy swingmen (“fantasy swingmen” sounds naughty) from the year that was. You know the deal, here’s my preseason Top 20 Small Forwards for 2010. Sip it, don’t slurp it … eh, what the hell. Go ahead and slurp it. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There are really just two numbers you need to know when it comes to evaluating James Harden. The first is 29.9. The second is 23. And, really, those numbers aren’t even connected to Harden – they’re connected to Thabo Sefolosha, so there. Sorry for the immediate mind screw. Sefolosha was starting and playing 29.9 minutes […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
