2016 NBA Fantasy Team Outlook: Philadelphia 76ers

For the first time in like forever, something positive is brewing in Philadelphia. And no, I don't mean the tank fest. (Although with probably a five-horse race for the top overall pick next year, that's not entirely a bad idea.) But yeah, let's forget about the 10-72 record last season or the 18-64 slate from the season before. While they still figure to be one of the worst teams in the league, the excitement surrounding Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric is warranted. These three are the Read More

5 Best Statistical Games Of Kevin Garnett’s Career

Kevin Garnett was a statistical powerhouse in his prime like no other. The long-limbed Garnett was the only player in NBA history to average at least 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists in nine consecutive seasons (from 1998-99 to 2006-07).

As a salute to The Big Ticket's retirement, here are the 5 best statistical Read More

Fantasy Impact Of Khris Middleton’s Injury

Khris Middleton does not sound like a basketball player's name and add to the fact that the Milwaukee Bucks only played four nationally-televised games, the name doesn't ring a bell that much among casual NBA fans. But fantasy basketball team owners are not your casual fans. That's why to us, hearing that Middleton sustain a hamstring injury that requires immediate surgery and a six-month recovery window is like hearing the United Nations has disbanded. It's bad news--total bad news-- especially Read More

2016 NBA Fantasy Basketball: Underrated Point Guard Options

The point guard position is one of the deepest in fantasy basketball but even a gold mine runs out of resources, too. Here are some of the more underrated point guard options to shore your fantasy lineup. On the Rise D'Angelo Russell, Los Angeles Lakers All signs point to Russell having a breakout season, from Luke Walton's comments, to his Summer League performances and otherworldly offseason workouts.

2016 Fantasy Basketball: Underrated Shooting Guard Options

On the rise? Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves Wiggins provide the one thing that shooting guards should and that's putting the ball through the hoop. On only his second year in the league, the Canadian wing already ranked No. 5 among two's in scoring (20.7) which is nice. He also has a knack of getting fouled (5th among guards with seven FTA per game), which is, again, very nice. However, he is pedestrian anywhere else and is not exactly someone you'd rely on to supply three-point shooting. All Read More

2016 Fantasy Basketball: Underrated Small Forward Options

On the Rise? Harrison Barnes, Dallas Mavericks The Mavs aren't paying Barnes, a fixture of Golden State Warriors' lineup of death, $94 million to sit on the bench. That as much is true. Whether Barnes can actually be efficient and produce elite numbers across the board remains to be seen but as long as he has playing time, he has a chance to do so. Barnes' per-36 minutes are somewhat pedestrian, only 13 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal for his career. However, that could be mainly seen Read More

6 NBA Players Who Successfully Transformed Their Games

The NBA is a big, bad, cruel world. Ir simply doesn't care whether you're a top dog in high school, in college, wherever. And it certainly doesn't give a damn whether you can pull off a 1,080-degree dunk (although that will look good on SportsCenter). What ultimately matters is how you fit into a system and if you don't, then it's the other way around: Transforming your game to be more successful. Here are 6 recent NBA players who have been there and done that. 1. J.J. Redick Redick was so Read More
