NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 13 (Jan.19- Jan.25)

Honestly, I couldn't remember one season where there are more transactions than Knicks' W's. That's not a knock on the Knickerbockers but more of a nod to the front offices doing everything in their power to be more relevant today or in the future. This week alone saw: Jeff Green move from Boston to Memphis (along with Russ Smith) Tayshaun Prince and Quincy Pondexter from Memphis to New Orleans (along with Grizzlies' future first-round pick to BOS) New Orleans' Austin Rivers was also Read More

You know I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to everything and that includes NBA fantasy basketball. So what's the point of giving the tips? Well, while what works for you may not work for others (and vice versa), there is an outline for this, a guide if you will so you'll know if you're handling everything right and well. That does not 100% guarantee anything but it will tremendously improve your chances to win your NBA fantasy basketball league. The best thing about Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 12 (Jan.12-Jan.18)

I can barely keep up with the transactions happening around the league and it's still January. In the past few days, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith from New York while paying a steep price (two first round picks) to land Timofey Mozgov from the Denver Nuggets. Dion Waiters, too, went from Ohio to Oklahoma in the same deal. (Mozgov is potentially more valuable now that he's on a team desperate for a rim-protecting big man. He should be getting minutes as a back-up Read More

Six Players Change Addresses As Three-Team Trade Pushes Through

The NBA's trade deadline is still over a month away but that didn't make teams sit back and wait for February to make bold moves. Dion Waiters, J.R. Smith, and Iman Shumpert were among the players involved in a three-team trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers, the New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Smith and Shumpert went from New York to Ohio and Waiters will join Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant in Oklahoma to create a potentially explosive scoring trio. Lou Amundson, Lance Thomas, Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 11 (Jan.5- Jan.11)

In NBA fantasy basketball, basically you have to watch out for a couple of things: Injuries and playing time. The latter is often a by-product of the former but come to think of it, the other way around is also true. Say for example, LeBron James. Ever since "The King" step foot in an NBA arena, he was handed the key to a franchise immediately. At a mere 18 years old, 'Bron was playing almost 40 minutes a night with Carlos Boozer, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Jeff McInnis. His workload hasn't come down Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 10

The NBA is in full swing and what's a good indication? If you see teams positioning themselves for the lottery or the long playoff haul, then you know. Ask Paul Pierce. Speaking of, developments abound the league the past few days: a.) Josh Smith's signing with the Houston Rockets after being waived by the Pistons and b.) the Los Angeles Lakers opting to rest Kobe Bryant's tired everything in hopes of a fresher Mamba for days to come. (Honestly, I think that's the Purple and Gold waving the white Read More

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 9 (Dec. 22-28)

We have forecasted the possible fantasy implications of two trades that happened last week, the Rajon Rondo to Dallas and Corey Brewer to Houston swaps. There's no doubt about the end results of both transactions, but the finer details and the temporary ramifications are interesting to say the least. Speaking of interesting, I think this year's MVP race should be electric, in the superlative form. To put this in perspective, the top four candidates Steph Curry, Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis and James Read More

What the Corey Brewer trade meant for fantasy owners

As busy as teams are right now, I would've mistaken everything as a February trade deadline rush. Clearly, all the General Managers pulled the trigger for one reason and one reason only: for the improvement of the team. For fantasy owners, we couldn't care less. (Actually, we do, but not to the fullest sense.) All we wanted is see what these transactions do or will do to our teams and then act like a smart GM will do. The trade that went through Friday was minor compared to the one that swung Read More

Rich getting richer: Fantasy impact of the Rajon Rondo trade

Unless you lived in a pineapple under the sea, your social media News Feed may have flooded because of the latest major trade in the NBA. Rajon Rondo (along with Dwight Powell) was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright and two future first round picks. Talking about the rich getting richer. From a realistic perspective, it tells us two things: The Boston Celtics is in full rebuild mode while Mark Cuban's crew is serious about contending. After Read More
