A few NBA Rookies to Watch 2014!

Fantasy basketball doesn’t always come down to who has the best talent. It sometimes comes down to who has the opportunity. For rookies, it can be hard to break into the rotation, especially if the team has plenty of depth. For those on teams that are lacking talent, opportunity is everything. Rookies can step in immediately and get plenty of playing time. Plenty of playing time can translate to more shots, points, rebounds, assists and the chance to fill up the entire stat sheet. Here are five rookies who can make an impact on your fantasy basketball team starting on day one:

1.  Jabari Parker

The second overall pick in the draft was widely regarded as the most NBA-ready prospect. In his freshman season at Duke University, he received All-American honors and was a double-double machine. He showcased one of the best inside-outside games in recent memory and was a matchup nightmare on the wing. The six-foot-eight forward is on the Milwaukee Bucks and will instantly become their go-to scorer meaning there is plenty of opportunity. He will be a great source of points and rebounds and while he needs massive improvement on the defensive end, his offensive game is more than NBA-ready.

2.  Julius Randle

Randle will immediately play big minutes for the Los Angeles Lakers whose cupboard is pretty bare. Besides Kobe Bryant, they don’t have many options and Randle is a good scorer underneath. He has an NBA-ready body and can handle himself in the paint. He should be the second rookie off your draft board as he will provide you with a lift in the scoring and rebounding department.

3.  Andrew Wiggins

Wiggins has the most potential of this rookie class and that’s why Cleveland took him first overall. However, he was traded in the Kevin Love deal and will begin his career for the Minnesota Timberwolves. He will get plenty of opportunities with the T’Wolves. Wiggins is not the most polished prospect but has exceptional athleticism and is a very good defender. For a shooting guard, his six-foot-eight frame should grab plenty of rebounds and add some steals and blocks. If he can improve his shooting, in years to come he could become the total package in fantasy basketball.

4.  Doug McDermott

McDermott was the best player in college basketball last season. The four-year starter for Creighton University was a superb scorer, getting baskets in a variety of ways. He isn’t a great athlete though so scouts wondered if he would translate to the NBA game. He won’t be a star in this league, but he is one of the best shooters in the game. He is also on the Chicago Bulls and will be relied upon to knock down his fair share of three-pointers, giving him plenty of fantasy value.

5.  P.J. Hairston

Hairston had a whirlwind of a season last year. He was kicked off the University of North Carolina basketball team following offseason issues and left school to play in the D-League. He was dominant in the D-League and used his NBA-ready body to score. And he scored a lot. He has unlimited range and can get to the basket. On the Charlotte Hornets, he should play quite a bit and be relied on to carry the second unit. He can fill up the scoreboard in a hurry so if you need points and three-pointers, he’s a good bet to provide that.

The post Adam Silver doesn’t want you to read! The real reason the NBA banned Donald Sterling for life

Oh, hi, been awhile! Hey, if you had a dollar for every time I’ve said something a bit racist in private you wouldn’t be rich but, I admit, you’d have a buck or three in your pocket. How about you? Let’s face it, everyone’s a little bit racist! Like the Broadway song from Avenue Q! That Donald Sterling guy, however, took it to another level. An unacceptable level! We all agree! But this post isn’t about Donald Sterling’s racist beliefs, it’s about something else; it’s about the NBA’s reaction to it. Or maybe I should say the NBA’s reaction to the reaction to Donald Sterling’s racist beliefs. It’s about the real reason why I believe Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and here’s a spoiler alert: It’s not because Mr. Silver was so appalled that Donald Sterling is a bigot. He already knew that. Hell, everyone knew that! Anyone paying attention anyway. What this post postures is that Adam Silver did the right thing but, in my opinion, he did it for the wrong reasons! Here’$ why.

Let’s take a look at an excerpt of what our hero, and great defender of human rights, Adam Silver said at yesterday’s press conference:

The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful; that they came from an NBA owner only heightens the damage and my personal outrage.

Sentiments of this kind are contrary to the principles of inclusion and respect that form the foundation of our diverse, multicultural and multiethnic league.

Wow, deeeeep. Impressive! Now, I’m going to tell you what I think he really meant to say:

The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful (to the pocketbooks of the other NBA owners); that they came from an NBA owner only heightens the damage and my personal outrage (because now we have to deal with possibly losing sponsors and future TV money if we don’t kick his ass out, pronto!).

Sentiments of this kind are contrary to the principles of inclusion and respect that form the foundation of our diverse, multicultural and multiethnic league (because we make billions of dollars together and we can’t have corporate America going ape shit on us over this old fool Sterling).

Am I saying that Adam Silver is a liar? Hellz to the no, son! I’m sure he is personally offended at the remarks. No doubt, most of us are! There is no place in our society for such hatred based solely on race, creed, sexual orientation, etc. We all know this. There is also no place in our society for things like domestic violence, sexual harassment (or worse, rape!) and drunk driving! You put your hands on a woman, that’s breaking the law. You force yourself sexually on a woman, that’s breaking the law. You drink more than the legal limit allows and get behind the wheel of a car, that’s breaking the law!

Did you know that according to Safe Horizon, a New York City not-for-profit organization helping victims of domestic violence

  • One in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.
  • Women experience more than 4 million physical assaults and rapes because of their partners, and men are victims of nearly 3 million physical assaults.
  • Women are more likely to be killed by an intimate partner than men.
  • Every year, 1 in 3 women who is a victim of homicide is murdered by her current or former partner.

Pretty serious stuff, right? Rhetorical! Now, let’s talk about Ray Rice for a moment. Back in February, Ray was caught on tape dragging his loving fiance out of a casino elevator. That’s not fine and dandy but there was an even worse problem:  She was knocked the *$#^ out! Can you imagine any scenario, outside of his fiance holding a gun or knife, where Ray Rice needed to actually knock her the *@$^ out? Me neither! Subsequently, they were both arrested but we all know what’s going to happen. Case dismissed! Money talks, bs walks. They are in love. Or something like that.

Nevertheless, Rice’s arrest is being reviewed by the league under the NFL’s personal conduct policy, which could lead to a possible suspension. I’m not a fortune teller but I do have a Magic 8 Ball and he told me that once the case gets dismissed in criminal court, he doesn’t see the NFL suspending Ray Rice. The case was dismissed, he did nothing wrong! That’s it, end of story. Domestic violence, a huge problem in America and throughout the world, swept under the rug. Importantly, not a peep of outrage from any NFL owner on this endemic issue! Wanna know why? Because corporate America didn’t make a big deal out of it; they didn’t give a crap. Corporate America didn’t threaten to pull sponsorships. NFL owners aren’t at risk of losing anything! And when they aren’t at risk of losing anything, let’s face it, they don’t care.

Now let’s imagine a different world. Let’s imagine a world where any one or more of the following Ravens current corporate sponsors pulls out over Ray Rice knocking his fiance the *%# out: McDonald’s, Burger King, Ashley’s Furniture and/or Cover Girl. Wait a second! Holy crap, Ray Rice is a bad guy, domestic violence is an awful problem in the United States! Let’s convene a meeting, get Roger Goodell on the line! We need to have a press conference to tell the world we are all personally offended by Ray Rice’s conduct. We don’t condone domestic violence! Let’s suspend and fine Ray Rice and donate the money to domestic violence shelters. Let’s make Ray Rice take anger management counseling. We need to do all we can to distance ourselves from this conduct because McDonald’s is pissed! You see where I’m going with this, y’all? Is Adam Silver still a hero and staunch defender of human rights to you or is he just protecting the asset he has been charged to protect by 30 (29!) NBA owners?

Did you know that according to Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD), if all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the United States. Only California, Texas, New York and Florida would be larger! Did you also know that an average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before his first arrest? 80!! And on average one in three people will be involved in a drunken driving crash during their lifetime. One-third of us!! In fact, every day in America 28 people die as a result of drunk driving. Think drunk driving is a serious problem in the United States? Rhetorical! So I reasonably ask you, is this issue any less important than the comments Donald Sterling made in a private conversation? Again, rhetorical!

Hey, guess who was arrested for drunk driving on March 16 this year? Yep, an owner of a major sports franchise! Jim Irsay! Mr. Irsay was charged with four felony counts after being arrested in Indiana on suspicion of driving under the influence. The news was basically a blip on the media’s radar. Another rich, spoiled owner got drunk and drove. Ho hum, old news! Never mind the statistics mentioned in the paragraph above. Never mind that Mr. Irsay could have killed some innocent by stander or, worse, a family! I didn’t hear Greeny and Golic on the radio screaming about how offended they were or anything like that.

But let’s get to the point! What’s important to the other NFL owners is no corporate sponsors made a big deal out of it. Thank god this took place in the off-season! Sweep it under the rug. We don’t want this costing us money! We must protect our asset and as long as that asset isn’t threatened, we don’t care about people drunk driving. We aren’t in the business of stopping drunk driving, we are in the business of making money! The second a corporate sponsor like Papa John’s, Toyota or Lucas Oil pulls out because Jim Irsay drove drunk, you think the other owners are going to distance themselves from their buddy Jim or align themselves with the drunk driver and let the sponsors walk? Do you still think Adam Silver, the mouthpiece of NBA owners, is a hero and staunch defender of human rights or is he moving to protect a billion dollar asset out of necessity?

I can only imagine how the NBA owner’s conference call went on Monday. Probably something like this:

Owner X: Guys, CarMax, Virgin America and Mercedes-Benz all pulled their sponsorship from the Clips!

Owner Z: This is a disaster, what should we do?

Owner Y: If we don’t distance ourselves from Sterling we will be guilty by association.

Silver: We have no choice but to ban him to save the rest of the league from losing corporate America’s support and to appease the NBA player’s association and NBA fans who are all offended. Posthaste, peoples!

I’m not even going to discuss the Ben Roethlisberger rape case because that would just be beating a dead horse. In my opinion, the NBA reacted to the reaction, not the act itself. I want to be clear, Adam Silver did the right thing here but he wants us to believe he did it because it was just and right based on human decency. Based on history and the way other equally, and arguably more important, social issues have been handled, I’m not buying it and neither should you.

The beginning of the End!

It’s that time of the year where we try to end our fantasy basketball seasons strong and get ready to go to battle in the playoffs. How’s your team right now? Hopefully, it’s strong. Real strong. Come Sunday, we will be making those decisions on what players to ditch and what players to hang on to throughout the duration of the playoffs. It looks like we’ll have a few good players back this week like an Eric Bledsoe, which is perfect timing, but we know they all won’t be like that. It’s also bad news for Gerald Green owners so there’s always another side of the story. Anyways, lets dive into some player news and finish this week out strong! Together……

Tyson Chandler – Out on Monday due to personal reasons. I expect him to be back later this week.

Gerald Henderson – Out again Monday but could be close. Chris Douglas-Roberts has been playing well in his stead.

Victor Oladipo – Is playing through an ankle injury. He should be fine.

Avery Bradley – Sounds like he could return Friday. Jerryd Bayless’ value may not drop much considering he should get more looks in a bench role.

Jonas Valanciunas – 4/9/2blks JV has been one of the bigger disappointments this year.

Evan Turner – 2 points yesterday in 25 minutes. What a critical move by the Pacers. Those Heat are really shaking in their shorts now……

Andrew Bynum – Could play this week. See Evan Turner blurb.

Nerlens Noel – Sounds like their is a possible return in April but I doubt the 76ers front office allows it.

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett – Both playing Monday.

Dwyane Wade – Also playing Monday.

Anderson Varejao – Returned to action this weekend and will be eased into playing time. Sounds like he will play around 15 minutes on Wednesday.

JJ Reddick – Increasing his workouts as of late. Could be a great add if we luck out and get a return in the next week or two. Could be a good stash if you have a first round bye in the playoffs.

Steve Novak – 15/1 with 5 treys. Need cheap threes?

Demarcus Cousins – 28/20/3/1/1 Managed to foul out without getting a technical foul. So,  theres that.

Marcus Thornton – 27/3/1/2stl Played motivated against his old team. Where’s the motivation every night Marcus?

Jodie Meeks – 42/2/4stl with 6 treys. Jodie had himself a game yesterday. Looked as if he was throwing a beach ball into the ocean all game. One thing is true, he should get plenty of shots up the rest of the way.

Tony Wroten – 30/1/4stls This kid can score. Hope you listened to hecman a week before the trade deadline!

Kyle O’Quinn – 9/5/1/1/1 Got a start on Saturday but only played 17 minutes. If he ever gets 25-30 minutes down the stretch, watch out!

Fantasy Basketball Playoffs to Payoffs!!

What’s up my fellow fantasy basketballers! It’s getting to be that time of year again where we fight for those fantasy basketball championships, it’s crunch time! Today, I will be breaking down the three weeks in which most of us will be participating in the first three rounds of the fantasy basketball playoffs. I will also break each week down by number of games for each team and go over some players that could be available to stream on a week to week basis. Since NBA teams do not play the same amount of games from week to week, we would rather run guys out that have 4-5 games per week over some guys who only play 2-3 times that particular week. If you are set and ready to rock for the playoffs, I would suggest doing some proactive planning and determine who you may drop or add in the next 3-4 weeks depending on that particular week. You’ll also want to decide on what days you will make the switch, which will depend on how many free agent adds you are allowed per week or per playoffs. For example, in one of my leagues we are allowed four adds per week and if only two or three are used, it could be wise to use those moves on a Sunday if needed before the end that round. This is especially recommended for those in weekly leagues which makes it tough when locking players in for the entire week, so were here to help you make those educated decisions. There’s a plethora of injury news and playoff breakdown to get to, so lets get down to business….

Round 1 - March 17th through March 23rd

Four Games - Atlanta, Brooklyn, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Indiana, Miami, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Toronto, Washington.

Three Games - Boston, Charlotte, Detroit, Golden State, Houston, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis, Milwaukee, Minnesota, New Orleans, New York, Oklahoma City, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, Utah.

Two Games - Los Angeles Clippers.

Round 2 - March 24th through March 30th

Five Games - Portland.

Four Games - Atlanta, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Detroit, Indiana, Los Angeles Clipper, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis, Miami, Minnesota, New Orleans, New York, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, San Antonio, Toronto, Utah.

Three Games - Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Milwaukee, Orlando, Philadelphia, Sacramento, Washington.

Two Games - Golden State.

Round 3 - March 31st through April 6th

Four Games - Atlanta, Brooklyn, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Golden State, Houston, Indiana, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami, Memphis, Milwaukee, Minnesota, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Sacramento, San Antonio, Toronto, Washington.

Three games - Cleveland, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Phoenix, Portland, Utah.

Now, obviously the Clippers and Warriors are teams you will want to stay away from in round one and two, but it will also depend on the player. You won’t want to run Jared Dudley or Draymond Green out that week if you have a similar option with one or two more games. As for your studs, like Chris Paul and Steph Curry, they need to in starting lineups at all costs. Stay tuned, as I will be breaking down each round weekly and going over players to add and player to stay away from that particular week. Recognize and Strategize!

Eric Bledsoe – Is currently participating in five on five drills and I would be surprised to not see him in the lineup in the next week or so. The Suns are still positioning for playoffs so he should have the motivation to return as soon as possible. Im holding.

Joakim Noah – Is beasting right now and playing through a bothersome ankle. He is playing today and should be fine.

Anderson Varejao – May be close to returning but wouldn’t blame you for dropping him. We have no guarantee on his health, when he returns, or his playing time when he returns to action. I’m just monitoring for now.

Tobias Harris – Congratulations for those who hung on to Harris through the tough times. He’s heating up with Glen Davis out of the picture and has dropped at least 20 points in four of his last six games.

Tony Parker – TP returned on Sunday and a big way going for 22 points, 3 boards, and 7 dimes. Looks like he’s good to go for fantasy playoffs.

Miles Plumlee – The Suns have been going small lately and Plumlee’s production has suffered severely. He should only be owned in very deep leagues.

Anthony Davis – Is dealing with a nagging shoulder injury right now, but should break out of it with no setbacks.

Amir Johnson – Playing better as of late, while fighting through ankle injuries. He’s a nice add right now if you need a big man.

Jimmy Butler – Playing well after returning from the rib injury. He contributes across the board and probably should not be available right now in your league.

Dwyane Wade – Out Monday due to rest. Monitor his back to back games each week and expect this to be a normal thing the rest of the way.

Martell Webster – Out Monday with a nagging back injury and is day to day.

Gerald Henderson – Also out Monday with a calf injury and is considered day to day right now.

Kevin Garnett – If there are better options out there, I would make the switch while you can. KG will be rested often down the stretch.

Kevin Seraphin – Out for Monday’s game. Upgrade Trevor Booker as long as Seraphin sits.

Tyreke Evans – Has been moved to the starting five in place of Al-Farouq Aminu and it sounds like it will stick for the rest of the season. This is great news for Tyke owners as he is averaging 18/7/4.5 so far as a starter.

Chandler Parsons – Was out with an illness but practiced Monday and sounds probably for Houston’s next contest.

Steve Nash – Likely out for season and may be retiring. Drop. It was fun while it lasted Steven!

Caron Butler –  With Thabo Sefolosha out for a month or so, Butler is expected to jump right into the Thunder’s starting lineup. He should be a decent source of threes.

Russell Westbrook – Looks to be knocking the rust off. Westy owners can exhale…..

Kawhi Leonard – Is paying off for owners who held on to him. He should be a nice player for the playoff stretch as long as he stays out of Popovich’s dog house.

Danny Green – Continues to struggle. I officially have no more patience for the sharp shooter. Which hasn’t been very sharp this year.

Gerald Wallace – Crash is out for the season with a torn meniscus.

Dion Waiters – Day to day with a balky knee, but is expected to returnTuesday.

Kenneth Faried and Ty Lawson – Both played Monday. Phew.

George Hill – Left Sundays game with a left shoulder injury. Upgrade Evan Turner. Hopefully the injury isn’t too serious.

Nick Young – Is not playing Monday.

Larry Sanders – Return is expected in late March but I’m not counting on it considering the Bucks are merely playing for the worst record right now.

Jrue Holiday – Is officially out for the season after leg surgery. Drop.

Jameer Nelson and Aaron Afflalo – Both are day to day so look for them to return this week.

Jason Richardson – Has been shooting and may return mid March. Lets just monitor him for now.

Nene Hilario – Out 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL. will likely not be available until playoffs are over. Upgrade Marcin Gortat, Kevin Seraphin, and Trevor Booker.

Remember, you can hit me up with questions in the comments below or contact me through Twitter @jfort753. Good Luck to everyone in the upcoming playoffs! Let’s go get those championships! See you next weekend!

Start Mullens picking up Byron!

Let’s talk about the Philadelphia 76ers! As predicted, there was plenty of movement down in Philly. Or up in Philly if you’re south of PA. Obviously the biggest loser here is Evan Turner (82%) who was shipped to Benchville, Indiana. I immediately dropped him in a shallowish 12 team league for Tim Hardaway, Jr. (21%) It was tough to see him go after his significant contributions this season but, hey, there’s no loyalty in fantasy basketball! I also own him in a 14 team league but will not hesitate to lose him for a hot free agent. Until then, I’m parking his ass right where the Pacers are, on the pine. As far as Spencer Hawes is concerned, I don’t see any reason why he can’t produce in Cleveland. The Cavs are trying to make the playoffs to appease Kyrie Irving and Spencer seems like the most useful guy up front to help do that. He and Anderson Varejao will probably co-exist, if Anderson ever gets back that is.

Moving onto the Sixers, we are looking at a fantasy basketball harvest! Maybe you’ll get a rotten potato or maybe you’ll get a a nice shiny apple! Whatever that means. Anyway, last week I told you to go ahead and spec add Tony Wroten (9%) in the event ET left home. I didn’t see the Sixers landing Danny Granger (55%) but there are rumors of a buy out and even if he sticks I can’t see him having an expanded roll. Or it is role? I think someone is hungry. Go ahead and hold onto Tony if you grabbed him to see if he can get some extra burn, I think he will and should be good for some points at least. James Anderson (11%) is also another beneficiary as I mentioned the other day and should be grabbed, I think he can do some nice second half things. Up front, Byron Mullens (6%) is suddenly worth a look-gander, just don’t look at his percents. You’ll vomit! That said, Byron was pretty useful last year when he logged minutes in Charlotte and I think we’re looking at a possible repeat of that once he gets up to speed. Arnett Moultrie (3%) is also definitely worth a look see if you have the room. His upside aint bad. His downside is fat though so let’s see. Hollis Thompson (0%) and Elliot Williams (0%) are other guys you’ll want to keep an eye on. Just one eye is sufficient. Use the other eye to watch curling in Sochi or something. Or are the Winter Olympics over? I wouldn’t know. Boring! Hey, it’s Add/Drop Friday! This week I’ll group by position eligibility. Here are some other suggested Adds for this week. And some Drops! As always, all ownership percentages are from Yahoo!

Guards

Tim Hardaway, Jr. - 21% – I went over him Wednesday.

Tony Allen - 29% – Tony Tony Tony has done it again! You know what he did. Old joke. He should be back soon to help in what he do.

Kevin Martin - 82% – Time to grab him if he’s still floating on your wire and you need the 3s. Best hurry, son!

Ramon Sessions - 8% – On Monday I told you to spec grab Nate Wolters assuming Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal were both launched. I called the post Good Ridnour! Thought it was pretty clever. Anyway, the problem is they were both launched for a guard better than either one of them. That leads me to temper expectations on Wolters. Sigh. Both worth a look gander though in deeper leagues.

Nate Wolters - 12% – See Ramon Sessions blurb 1/4 inch up. Depending on the size of your computer screen, of course!

Patty Mills - 33% – Went over him on Wednesday. Same opinion!

Corey Joseph - 1% – Went over him on Wednesday. Same opinion!

Evan Fournier - 5% – Went over him Wednesday. It was a pretty good post! My mother said so.

Forwards

Tobias Harris – 73% – I think we could see a second half surge like last year. Just maybe. I’d grab him in 10 team leagues if he’s floating out there to find out.

Josh McRoberts – 30% – I still can’t believe he’s just owned in 30% of leagues. He’s pretty sneaky useful if you can live with his points per game totals.

P.J. Tucker – 21% -Went over him Wednesday.

DeMarre Carroll - 33% – At 10 ppg/5 rpg and over a steal and three per you could definitely do worse, said Evan Turner (82%)!

Kyle Singler - 8% – Went over him Wednesday. Getting burn!

Draymond Green -2% – Getting a little bit of burn with Andrew Bogut out. Could make for a decent streamer in H2H if you’re in need of a body.

Wesley Johnson - 30% – Has been playing huge minutes with Nick Young out but Nick is back in 3, 2 …

Khris Middleton - 28% – Been pretty solid all season. Better than that yutz Ersan Ilyasova! I’m not Jewish so I hope I used that word right.

Kyle O’Quinn - 1% – He’s averaging over 7 boards and a block per over his last 4 games and now Glen Davis was carted off. They couldn’t launch Glen, he was too fat!

Andrew Nicholson – I prefer Kyle O’Quinn but Nicholson could and should pop in a few decent games here and there too. Good luck on when!

Centers

Greg Stiemsma – 1% – You want cheap blocks, you can’t get cheaper! Why his name reminds me of smegma, I don’t know.

Pero Antic - 1% – Should be back soon. Go ahead and give him a whirl if you like cheap threes and some boards out of the center spot, said Channing Frye!

Enes Kanter – 71% – He’s already owned in a high percentage of leagues but he seems to be excelling with Derrick Favors out lately.

Drop

Ryan Anderson – 45% – Officially done for the year.

Kelly Olynyk – 28% – I told you to spec grab him just in case Brandon Bass was moved. Coulda been a boon! Instead it’s a poon.

Glen Davis – I assume he will ignore the California health craze.

Evan Turner – I find it odd that other, um, experts get excited over Jordan Hamilton being traded to Houston but, at the same time, tell you to lose ET. Aren’t they both playing limited minutes? Whatevs.
