In the midst of all the NBA insanity lately, I cleared a couple hours last night to participate in my first mock draft of the season. Here were the settings:

  • 12 teams
  • 14 rounds/roster spots (1 PG, 1 SG, 1 G, 1 SF, 1 PF, 1 F, 2 C, 3 Util, 3 Bench)
  • Time per pick: 60 seconds
  • Assumptions: head-to-head, nine categories

We had 12 humans sign up for it, but two didn’t show and one got to the draft late. Regardless, I’m happy that so many readers were able to take part in this mock draft on such short notice.

Here’s a quick recap and analysis of the mock draft, with picks I liked in green and picks I didn’t like in red. (Auto-selected picks were not given color judgments — except for one.) (continue reading…)

The Top 150 Fantasy Basketball Players for 2011-12

by on Jul.13, 2011, under Rankings

Fantasy Basketball Inception

In "2011-12" we might witness fantasy basketball in its truest form.

The NBA lockout has been about as horrifying as sitting in between two of your friends who spontaneously decide to make out with each other in public. Of course, if those two friends were the NBA Players Association and the NBA owners, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.

Before you start thinking too much about James Dolan getting intimate with Derek Fisher, let’s move on to the point of this post.

Fantasy basketball is, thankfully, immune to such silly things as lockouts. But what the NBA lockout does mean is that any projections made for what we call “2011-12″ are made for a season that might not happen. In other words, we’re making forecasts about fantasy basketball for a season that might not even exist — a season that may be, in fact, a fantasy.

A fantasy within a fantasy — fantasy basketball in the truest sense.

Without further ado, here are my early rankings for the top 150 fantasy basketball players in “2011-12.” (continue reading…)
