NBA MVP Power Rankings – Dec. 14, 2017

1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg) The third overall pick in the 2009 draft continues to impress as his team maintains a one game lead over the Warriors for the #1 seed in the West. He’s one of the most gifted scorers in recent memory, and is a good bet to average over 30 ppg for the season, something only KD and Steph Curry have done in the past 8 years. This year, his stellar play is actually turning into more wins and the Rockets look like a legit threat to the Warriors. Rumors have been Read More

5 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup

Tonight is a Ten game schedule. The more choices, the more doubt creeps in with your pick. Here are 5 picks to help get your lineup jumpstarted. PG Jamal Murray, $5,100 Nice value pick here. Jamal Murray scored a season high 31 points the last time they played the Pelicans. Not a whole lot of defense is going to be played in this game, the Nuggets won 146-114 last game, I don't think both teams will tighten up on Defense over night. SG. Dwyane Wade, $5,800 I am using the PG slot Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings – The Contenders

Let’s take a look at the early contenders for MVP. Feel free to comment with your top 3 and let’s start a discussion. Personally, I define MVP as the player who has or is having the best season. We all know LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, but he doesn’t always put together a better season than everybody else.

Surprises of the NBA Eastern Conference so Far this Season

The Boston Celtics’ Success without Gordon Hayward After all the hype and anticipation, it was devastating to see Gordon Hayward go down with a season-ending injury just 5 minutes into the season.
