Beast of the Night: Paul Millsap finished with 33 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. He shot 65 percent (13-20) from the field, 88 percent (7-8) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. Millsap sandwiched two mediocre games between this one and his monster game on Sunday. His worn-down body is still a concern but he should be fine to finish the season on a strong note.

Lines for Discussion:
Anthony Randolph: 14-20 FG (70%), 3-3 FT (100%), 31 Pts, 11 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO

Jason Kidd: 0-5 FG (0%), 6 Reb, 13 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

In the slightly tweaked words of Mary J. Blige, no more ‘Melodrama. It should come as a surprise to no one but the blindest Nets fan that Carmelo Anthony has finally landed in Manhattan to play for the New York Knicks. While the deal is awaiting league approval, and though some of these names will probably move again before Thursday’s trade deadline, here’s a quick look at the fantasy impact of this mega deal. To read my full thoughts on the fallout, head on over to DimeMag.com.

New York Knicks get: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter, Renaldo Balkman and Corey Brewer

↔ Carmelo Anthony

This week I have the distinct pleasure of hosting the Fantasy Basketball Roundtable. My prediction for this week’s discussion? In the words of the great Clubber Lang, “Pain.”

Since all the respondents are devoted fantasy basketball bloggers and supposed “experts” in this wonderful field of study, I thought it would be nice for our readers to get a glimpse into our amateur moments — to humanize us and make us more relatable, if we weren’t already. Little did I know how afflicted the answers would turn out to be. They read like a series of tear-soaked letters from spurned lovers recounting regrettable romances that have all gone awry and ended in soul-crushing heartbreaks. Without further ado, here is the pointed question I put to our panel of fantasy basketball authorities:

Who has turned out to be your most shameful draft pick?

Get those handkerchiefs ready. Here are the dismal responses, with the shameful players’ names in red: (continue reading…)
