Fantasy Basketball Mailbag — What Happens To Nikola Pekovic?

Nikola Pekovic

The NBA schedule is out and the 2014-15 season now feels like a concrete object in the not-too-distant future. So, with that in mind, I thought it would be a time to debut a mailbag column. As people get ready, setting times for their drafts, there are sure to be questions abounding and I’m happy to help in whatever way Continue Reading →

All You Need Is Kevin Love — The Cavs Get Their Man

Kevin Love and Andrew Wiggins

Well, it finally happened. Actually, it hasn’t happened yet, but if Woj reports it, it’s as good as done. Although it can’t be finalised until August 23rd, Kevin Love will be the newest member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, traded in exchange for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and a 2015 first-round draft pick. The word from the Yahoo! guru is that Continue Reading →

Industry Fantasy Basketball Mock Draft 2014-15

Kevin Love

It was with great pleasure that I accepted an invite to an industry fantasy basketball mock draft recently, my first for the 2014-15 season. What I thought would be an interesting exercise was to break down how things played out in the mock as an idea of how experts in the field are valuing these players at this early stage. Although Continue Reading →

The Case For — Brook Lopez

Brook Lopez

Coming back from injuries is always an iffy proposition, as we discussed on the latest Red Rock Podcast. The Brooklyn Nets’ cornerstone, Brook Lopez, unfortunately suffered another broken bone in his foot last season and will making his second comeback attempt from that injury in the past two years. It’s really a shame, because Lopez is, in my opinion, the best offensive Continue Reading →

The Case For — Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Disclaimer: I love Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s mesmerizing to watch, as he takes three steps and a dribble to get to the hole from the three-point line or get a chase-down block then follow up with a monster jam. Not to mention the fact that he’s grown about three inches since he was drafted 12 months ago. But we’re here to Continue Reading →

Percentage Killers — Who’s Shooting Can You Avoid Or Exploit

Josh Smith

I got into a interesting discussion on the fantasy basketball subreddit the other day, regarding the benefits or hindrances of the fantasy basketball percentages categories. It was a discourse over whether or not you should ignore the percentage categories in head to head leagues. Honestly, I can see both sides. The thought process behind ignoring these categories is that in head Continue Reading →

It’s A Cruel, Cruel, World — Paul George Likely Out For The Season

Paul George

What a terribly cruel mistress sport can be? One day, Paul George is plying his trade with the best of the best, readying himself to represent his country with pride and honour. Nek minute (if you are unsure what that means, check the video below), he’s on a hospital bed awaiting surgery for a compound fracture to both his right Continue Reading →
