For the first time in forever, the NBA Finals featured rosters without anyone named LeBron James or Steph Curry. It was a refreshing sight for basketball fans, and the last couple of games in the series were not for the feint of heart.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was named Finals MVP, delivered a performance for the ages and a historic series. And now, the Larry O'Brien trophy is in Milwaukee, much to the delight of some 65,000 fans in attendance in the Deer district. If you're a stathead like me, Read More
Just a week ago, it seems like everybody is ready to crown the Phoenix Suns as the champs. They had complete control of the series after the first two games and both Chris Paul and Devin Booker are playing out of their minds.
Three games later, it won't be the Suns who will have the chance to take home the Larry O'Brien trophy. Talking about a complete 180! And it could turn out to be a complete disaster for Phoenix, who will be tested with their backs in the proverbial wall.
As good a leader as Read More

Who to pick:
If you're looking for someone to build your team around, I think it comes down to Nikola Jokic or Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is basically averaging 30-15-7 over the past five games while Joker is good for 30-12-5 over the past six. You couldn't ask for more if you want consistency.
But, if I have to pick, who gets the nod? I'd probably go with Jokic on this one. Giannis gets a questionable tag going into Monday night's game with Portland and while that could just Read More
The Milwaukee Bucks is comfortably sitting atop the NBA for pretty much 85% of the season until the suspension. If you have to name one reason for their resurgence, no doubt it would Giannis Antetokonmpo.
Known as the Greek Freak, Antetokounmpo is the reigning MVP and is probably on his way to bag a second straight Maurice Podoloff Trophy. However, while there may be no denying that Giannis is the best player of the NBA's best team, is he also the Number 1 in fantasy basketball?
Well, for discussion's Read More
It's hard to determine who the MVP of 2020 Fantasy Basketball but there are at least SIX who are in the conversation, in my opinion. These are James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, James Harden, and Luka Doncic. Doncic missing games is an issue but still, he is a force to be reckoned with 52.61 fantasy points per game, according to NBA's official fantasy scoring system.
But we will get to Luka at another time. This article is about LeBron James, AKA The Washed King, AKA Read More

Buddy Hield had a good game against the Warriors. He didn’t have as big a day as I thought/hoped, Buddy has shown he can drop easily drop 30+ points and the Warriors are one of the worst teams in the league defending the 3. Hield ended up with 19 points, going 2-5 from 3, and finished Read More
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.
