The title of this post is an exaggeration, of course — but only by a hair from Manu’s thinning dome.

Remember that fantasy basketball preview in Dime Magazine I mentioned last week? Well, for those of you bums who either don’t subscribe to that glorious print publication or were too penurious to go out and pick up a copy of the issue, good news: it’s being posted onto DimeMag.com, piece by  piece.

Keep checking DimeMag.com for the rest of it.

Please bear in mind that all this was originally written back in early September. While I updated some stuff for the Web editions, I tried to leave as much of it alone as possible.
