Biggest And CrazIest NBA Stories and Rumors (Part 2)

1.) Never played sober We have heard guys like Gilbert Arenas, J.R. Smith, and Metta World Peace talk about drinking before games but did you know one player in the NBA that did not play a game sober? This story by former Net Jayson Williams must be the craziest drinking-before-games story ever. In a Podcast interview for Vice Sports, Williams revealed Manute Bol drank Heineken every single day including game days and as a result, the 7-foot-7 Sudanese never played a game with his wits totally Read More

Biggest NBA Rumors That May Or May Not Be True (Part 1)

The NBA, as its slogan say, is where amazing happens. But the thing is, it's not always on the court where the "amazing" happens, if we believe these crazy NBA rumors, that is. These may or may not be true but as I always say, stories wouldn't be told if there is no ring of truth to it. Let me begin by sharing these 5 NBA rumors: 1.) The NBA's Biggest (and Dirtiest) Prank? The Washington Wizards from the mid-2000s and early 2010s were a rowdy bunch. They had issues with team plane gambling, pulling Read More

Top 5 Candidates For 2020 Defensive Player Of The Year

We still don't know when or if the season will even resume but it won't hurt getting the guys the recognition they deserve. These time around, let's give the NBA's best stoppers some love. 1.) Brook Lopez, C, Milwaukee Bucks The Bucks' defense this season approaches historic proportions no thanks to a line of capable defenders from up and down the roster. Guys such as Eric Bledsoe, Wesley Matthews, and Khris Middleton are menaces on the perimeter but Milwaukee's defensive identity relies heavily Read More

Top 5 Candidates For 2020 Most Improved Player

If the season is officially over, who are your candidates for Most Improved Player? Well, that's a tough question since the "Most Improved" tag can simply be theoretical. Is your MIP rose from relative obscurity to prominence? Someone who was good but kept adding up to his game? Or perhaps a first-time All-Star? Who knows, but every young star appearing on this list definitely has a case. Let's start with someone from the most pleasant surprise teams, the Oklahoma City Thunder: 1.) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: Nikola Jokic’ 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

Owning Nikola Jokic in fantasy basketball is not for the faint of heart nor for the impatient. Joker is known in fantasy circles to be an ultra-slow starter, probably rounding up into form around December.  While he only averages around 45 fantasy points per game (that's 15th in the entire league), he has not missed a game yet all season. That's the reason why he has a total of 2,815 fantasy points, which would have ranked third behind James Harden and Trae Young.  Jokic' iron man status Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: Anthony Davis’ 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

If there's doubt about Anthony Davis' fit next to LeBron James, all of that has been erased. AD has been a force to be reckoned with like he always has been. His 26.7 PPG is second-highest of his career, while supplying 9.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.4 blocks. Sure, the rebounding average is his lowest since his rookie year but AD made up for that by making 1.2 threes per game and a career-high 84% clip from the line on over eight attempts. In the most popular fantasy platforms and Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

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

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: James Harden’s 5 Best Stat Lines Of the Season

James Harden has been the best, if not the best, fantasy basketball player over the last five years but does he still sit atop the fantasy basketball world this season? For roto-based leagues, he might still be. ESPN's rankings on category-based leagues (roto and H2H categories) all have the Beard as No. 1. He was No. 6 on points rankings but there's no denying the statistical impact he still has, despite playing with a high-usage guy next to him.  Like LeBron James, Harden's longevity in fantasy Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: LeBron James’ 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

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
