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.

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. I also don’t like the argument for MVP being guided by the idea of “well if you took him off the team, how bad would they be performing?” In my opinion, Read More

3 Fearless Predictions For The 2016-17 Fantasy Basketball Season

Fantasy sports is more or less based around projections. It is the equivalent of the scientific method except it's pretty much all about educated guesses and an experiment is not a possibility. And we know how our minds mess with us sometimes (or in my case, ALL THE TIME). Our brains, for some reason, work a little faster than the rest of our body at times and VOILA! WE say things that we probably regret later, but we have to say it anyways. This time, I'll go ahead and offer my three fearless Read More
