NBA MVP Power Rankings

A little over a month ago, here’s how my Power Rankings stacked up: 1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg) 1B) LeBron James, SF, CLE (28.2 ppg) 3) Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS (24 ppg) 4) Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL (29.9) A LOT has changed in a month so let’s get to some updated rankings Kevin Durant, SF, GSW, 26.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.2 assists Durant has easily been the most consistent player in the league this year. We’re used to him dropping 26+ points Read More

Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em – NBA FanDuel – Dec. 20, 2017

Fanduel is gving away a free entry into their “Christmas Jam” contest. The prizes involve NBA tickets and autographs. Sit ‘Em: James Harden, PG, HOU ($15,500) Harden has struggled (compared to his high standards), failing to score at or above his average FPPG in his last 4 games. His salary is slightly reflective of this, given that he’s only the 5th most expensive player. He’s only scored more than 30 points once in his last 5 games, and with the Thunder and Westbrook fighting for Read More

2018 All-Star Team Projections

NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More

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

NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy – Nov. 29th

Tier 1 – James Harden, PG, Hou We get to choose from James Harden, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis in tier 1, and I would take Harden here. He scored 73 fantasy points on Monday with 37 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Quite simply, Harden gives you the highest ceiling of any fantasy player right now. Chris Paul hasn’t had a negative effect on his fantasy output and he’s starting to heat up from 3-point range, hitting a season-high 8 of them on Monday. Tier 2 – 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. 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
