Many of us already have Golden State as three-peat champions at the start of the season (although the East's Milwaukee, Toronto, and Boston begs to disagree) and already looking forward to 2019-20. In fantasy basketball, it's normal to look ahead, especially in keeper leagues. Now is the time to sift through and investigate who you have and determine whether they are worth a keeper spot in your roster. If you have any of these 7 guys all under 24 yrs of age, though, be sure you have them as fantasy Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday, Feb. 25, 2019:
Chris Paul, PG, Houston Rockets
We know it's only a matter of time before Chris Paul gets himself in the groove of things and that time appears to be now. With James Harden out of the lineup, CP3 will carry the fight for the Rockets against Atlanta, the same way he did versus Golden State. By the way, CP has had two 50-FP games in a row and here's to hoping he'll make it three.
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Love torched Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
1. Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors
Starting with the highest-paid guy, KD is a no-brainer must-start for every DFS team. You have earned as much when you average 34 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 blocks in a four-game span. Expect that kind of numbers especially with Steph Curry out, but since Draymond Green could be on the shelf as well against the Lakers, the Slim Reaper should go berserk in Kobe's jersey retirement night.
2. Omri Casspi, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors
Casspi Read More
1. Another milestone for The King...
Congrats to @KingJames of the @cavs for moving up to 10th on the all-time Field Goals Made list with 10,660! #ThisIsWhyWePlay pic.twitter.com/GrnqxWfIzB

2. Just a thought: Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram, the No. 1 and No. 2 pick of 2016, got their first 30-point games on the same night.
3. Proof that the NBA is a player's league: Mike D'Antoni's Rockets is sixth in the NBA in defensive efficiency while Tom Thibodeau's Wolves Read More
1. Ersan Ilyasova, PF, Atlanta Hawks
I can probably include a couple of Hawks here but let me start with the Turkish veteran. Atlanta is in full tanking mode and aside from Dennis Schroder (and to a lesser extent, Kent Bazemore), someone has to score for this team.
Ilyasova averaged almost 15 points in 53 games for the Sixers last season while contributing almost six rebounds and two assists. Ilyasova is also hitting over 1 trey a game over the course of his career and the combined 1.1 steals+blocks Read More
NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- March 19, 2017
DeMar Derozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($7,700)
DeMar Derozan has a pretty mediocre stat line the past six games averaging "only" 34.5 points. He is still the focal point of the Raptors offense. though, and against a less-than-impressive Pacers defense, Derozan could break out and hit the 50's once again.
Goran Dragic, PG, Miami Heat ($7,600)
The Dragon has hit the high 40's in three of the past four and draws another favorable matchup against Read More
The Los Angeles Lakers have been the Fakers the past few seasons, missing out on a number of big-name free agents and trying to make the best out of the last years of Kobe Bryant. We knew how that turned out.
Quietly, though, the Lakers have built a nice young core, not to mention hire one of the brightest young coaches in the game in Luke Walton. Bryant has since retired which means player development will be on full swing and with Walton at the helm, the Purple and Gold figures to be one of the Read More
I have just listed my surprise standouts in the 2016 NBA Summer League and now it's time to do the opposite and tally the disappointments. I may just be overreacting to some of them because I expected a lot more from these guys but that's the price to pay if you're picked at the top of the lottery. There you go, I spilled all the beans.
Here are my 5 disappointments in the 2016 NBA Summer League:
1. Buddy Hield, SG, New Orleans Pelicans
Hield was tabbed the most NBA ready out of ANY player Read More
