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.

Beast of the Night: Dwyane Wade finished with 26 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals,1 block and 2 turnovers last night against the Wizards.  He shot 47 percent (8-17) from the field and 100 percent (10-10) from the free-throw line. Wade has bounced back in his past three games after some struggles earlier this month but is still having a disappointing season so far.

Lines for Discussion:
Gilbert Arenas: 9-21 FG (43%), 2-2 FT (100%), 3 threes, 23 Pts, 5 Reb, 7 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO

Chris Bosh: 5-14 FG (36%), 10-14 FT (71%), 20 Pts, 7 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Kobe Bryant had a very efficient night, finishing with 33 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals, while hitting 3 threes in just three quarters of work against the Pistons. He shot 55 percent (11-20) from the field, 100 percent (8-8) from the free-throw line and had 3 turnovers. Despite playing nearly six fewer minutes per game, Black Mamba is averaging more threes, rebounds and free-throw attempts (along with a higher free-throw percentage) per game.

Lines for Discussion:
Evan Turner: 3-8 FG (38%), 5-6 FT (83%), 11 Pts, 12 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO

Chris Bosh: 12-17 FG (71%), 11-11 FT (100%), 35 Pts, 6 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)
