7 Fascinating Stats And Facts Early In The NBA Season

It's just been a little over two weeks since the 2019-20 NBA season tipoff but it already provides us with plenty of material for some really fascinating facts and stats: 1.) The Assists Battle LeBron James is the runaway leader in APG early in the season with 11.1 but Malcolm Brogdon edged him 79-78 for the total assist count as the Pacers played their eighth game Thursday.

5 Weird and Amazing Stat Lines Very Early In The 2019-20 Season

I know there were only 13 games played out of a gazillion more to come but for a stathead like me, I couldn't help but feel giddy. After all, it's about time to overreact. Here are 5 of the weirdest and most amazing stat lines to start the season: 1.

How TO Pull Off The Perfect Fantasy Basketball Draft (Points)

I'll be the very first one to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect draft unless you're competing with six year olds. But relatively speaking, you can pretty much nail a fantasy basketball draft if you come prepared. and has a clear goal in mind.  The league scoring also matters and for this article, let's hypothetically consider how to complete the (near) perfect standard points league draft.  In a points league, the general rule is go for high-efficiency bigs (high FG% ) over high-volume, Read More

5 Players That Are Drafted Too High/Too Low in Yahoo Leagues

1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Dallas Mavericks (Yahoo ADP: 19.6) Doncic is a risk taking at that spot perhaps at least a round too early. Last season, Luka clocked at 71 in the rankings by FantasyPros, and that is despite his otherworldly rookie campaign (21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 6 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 3PM). The downfall of Doncic was in his efficiency (under 43% FG, over 71% from the line and 3.4 turnovers per game) and based on preseason returns, that's not going to change anytime soon. Moreover, Read More

Morant may not keep up his efficient shooting but he can slice and dice defenses with the best of them. In fact, he has a total of 17 assists in over 38 minutes of preseason playing time and only four total turnovers.

5 Unpopular Fantasy basketball Takes Coming Into The season

1.) Russell Westbrook is still top-10 in fantasy basketball. This year's fantasy draft has Brodie as an early Round 2 pick but even with James Harden around, the Rockets offense is designed to accomodate another high-usage player. And it's not like Westbrook has not played with Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul George before. Last season was a down year for Westbrook and he still finished in the top 15. Odds are he will not be averaging a triple-double for the fourth straight year but he Read More

10 Players Who Would Be Perfect for today’s NBA

Michael Jordan. Magic Johnson. Kobe Bryant. Tim Duncan. Larry Bird. LeBron James. Hakeem Olajuwon. Superstars like them are the kind that you can put in any era and will just plain dominate.  Lumbering bigs such as Mark Eaton and Moses Malone non-shooting point guards like Rod Strickland and Mark Jackson may have trouble cracking the line-up in today's game but flipping the script a little bit, there are a lot of players that may probably have been better if they played in this era.  Take a look Read More

10 Biggest Fantasy Losers In 2019 NBA Free Agency

1.) D'Angelo Russell Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports Russell just became the first option of a young Nets team to probably an off-the-ball scorer in Golden State with Steph Curry the focal point of the offense. The first-time All-Star excels when he has the ball making decisions on pick-and-rolls, something he may not be able to do with Curry around. (According to NBA.com/stats, the percentage of unassisted field goals by Russell last season is at 71.2%, which means he is more of a shot-creator Read More
