5 Awesome Basketball Stats Of The Day

1. Kyle Lowry The Toronto Raptors guard is arguably the best player whenever he steps on the Olympic floor. Need proof? Lowry: 1st in defensive rating, 3rd in net rating. Team USA was +192 with him on the floor. Yeah, he's good. https://t.co/Xj5tAKyPDd — Josh Lewenberg (@JLew1050) August 23, 2016 2. That time when David Robinson decided to steal one scoring title from Shaq on the last day of the regular season... https://youtu.be/BBCNgqYnlZI ... and finished with 71 points, 14 rebounds, Read More

3 Things We Learned From The Thunder-Warriors Series

The Oklahoma City Thunder landing the heavier punches through the first four games of the Western Conference Finals is somewhat a surprise. But the Golden State Warriors coming back from a 1-3 hole is just as, or even more, surprising. Here are the 3 things we learned from that helluva series: 1. Makes me realize how special a player Kobe Bryant is. I don't mean to come across as a fanboy and I apologize putting someone in this conservation that is not even remotely involved in the series Read More

April 13, 2016– 5 Interesting NBA Stats Of The Day

5 Interesting NBA Stats Of The Day 1. Russell Westbrook is Magic-esque... Russell Westbrook with his 18th triple-double of the season: 11-10-10, done in the first half.

March 1, 2016– Best DFS Basketball Value Picks

Here are the best DFS basketball options for a six-game March 1 game day. March 1, 2016-- Best DFS Basketball Value Picks The Studs Damian Lillard, PG ($9,600) Anyone with a brain would be tempted to pick Stephen Curry, who is averaging like a hundred points lately. However, the reigning MVP is doubtful for the Atlanta game. If you want to pay for another high quality point guard, there is no better option than Lillard here. Dame's least productive outing for the past 10 games is a 40-FP output Read More

Feb. 21, 2016– DFS Basketball Best Value Picks

Feb. 21, 2016-- DFS Best Value Picks The Studs LeBron James, SF ($9,700) You can either go with Russell Westbrook or Kevin Durant here but LeBron James is cheaper while averaging almost the same Fantasy Points over the past 10 games as Westbrook. It seems Tyronn Lue's offense has awoken the fantasy beast in "The King". The only "mishap" in the past 10 is the Jan. 27 game in Phoenix, where the four-time MVP scored "only" 37.25 FP. Pau Gasol, C, ($8,500) I'm going with Pau Gasol for two Read More

Why You Should Hold On To Kobe Bryant

It used to be so exciting to watch Kobe Bryant will his team into a win by doing everything statistically, but sadly, his body can't take it anymore. Bryant already announced he will be retiring at the end of the season but ironically, this made it the perfect time to hang on to "The Black Mamba". That's not to say you should be targeting him on trades but if somehow you used a 7th round pick on him, this would not be the time to be impatient. This year isn't exactly a banner season for Kobe Read More

NBA December 4, 2015– Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks

Here are NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks in a six-game Friday. The Studs John Wall, PG ($8,300) Wall's Washington Wizards have disappointed so far and in some stretches this season, their best player did too. However, if the last two games are any indication, the speedster may have just turned a corner. Wall dropped back-to-back 60 fantasy-point games against Cleveland and L.A., and will be facing the Phoenix Suns at home, who incidentally is the league's worst in defending point guards. Kristaps Read More

5 Players To Avoid For Your NBA Fantasy Basketball Team

There are so many factors why a certain player gets picked so high in a fantasy draft and it is our jobs to acquaint and warn you about them. It could be some inherent biases we all have towards our favorite teams (if you're a Cleveland fan, you might pick J.R. Smith over, say, Nikola Mirotic), we might be looking way up on re-tooled squads, or simple believed the buzz. Yeah, we have all been there before and fantasy basketball is by no way an exact science, but these players pretty much should Read More

Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

Overview: People in Los Angeles aren't the most patient in the world so anyone cheering for the Purple and Gold find very little reason to do so. Kobe Bryant seemed to have one thing in mind from the get-go, and that is to pass Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list, shooting percentages be damned. Highly-touted rookie Julius Randle got himself seven minutes of real NBA play before breaking his tibia. And the list goes on. No fantasy-productive players will return this season except Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 10

The NBA is in full swing and what's a good indication? If you see teams positioning themselves for the lottery or the long playoff haul, then you know. Ask Paul Pierce. Speaking of, developments abound the league the past few days: a.) Josh Smith's signing with the Houston Rockets after being waived by the Pistons and b.) the Los Angeles Lakers opting to rest Kobe Bryant's tired everything in hopes of a fresher Mamba for days to come. (Honestly, I think that's the Purple and Gold waving the white Read More
