Fantasy Friday: Dwyane Wade vs. Jessica Alba (poll)

Dwyane Wade vs. Jessica Alba

Who's the true manna from heaven: Dwyane Wade or Jessica Alba? (Keith Allison, Kalumba2009/Flickr)

It’s Friday, the work week is nearing its demise (until it rears its hideous morning face on Monday) — I think it’s time for a treat.

When you read the word “fantasy,” what’s one of the first things (if not the first thing) that pops into your dirty little mind? Come on, admit it — even the most ardent fantasy basketball junkie can’t stop his subconscious from conjuring up images of the fairest celebrity crushes.

So what better way to combine these two wonderful realms than to bring them together in a single post comparing fantasy ballers and fantasy women?

I’m of the mind that it’s never too early to participate in fantasy basketball mock drafts, so when Henry at Weakside Help reached out to me with the idea of partnering on a drafting adventure, I was amped — Robin Lopez amped.

Here’s the deal: We’re working with a 12-team head-to-head league with nine categories (FG%, FT%, 3ptm, Pts, Reb, Ast, Stl, Blk, TO) and 13 draft rounds. I’m taking the first round, Henry takes the second, I take the third, etc. Each round will consist of picking players in the order we see fit while making sure we’re building 12 viable teams as best as we can, sprinkling our comments along the way.

Got it? Good.

Without further ado, let’s dive right into the first round of our fantasy mock draft: (continue reading…)
