Round seven and still going strong.

It’s been a fun ride so far and this middle part of the draft is where it gets really exhilarating. The pressure of conforming to general opinion from the earlier rounds is gone, but the pickings aren’t yet slim enough that you can let up a bit like you may be able to do in the latter rounds. This is where you start seeing and doing things you might not have expected heading into the draft, and where big-time steals are made.

Henry got me nodding, grimacing and raising my eyebrows in round six, so I’m hoping to give him (and you) a similarly emotional ride here in round seven.

If you need to catch up, here are round oneround tworound threeround four, round five and the aforementioned round six.

I could call this round the “Dirty Dozen,” since there are so many dudes being taken here that might cause you to groan in boredom and agony. But there are some exciting picks, too. Read on and hold onto your butts — this might be a rocky one: (continue reading…)

Weekend Wonder: LeBron James takes this honor yet again. He averaged 28.5 points, 1.5 threes, 8 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1 steal, 1.5 blocks and just 1 turnover in two games this past weekend. He shot 54 percent from the field and 82 percent from the free throw line during that span. During the past month or so, James has been the king of fantasy basketball.

Notable lines:
Nate Robinson (1/1): 18-24 FG (75%), 2-5 FT (40%), 3 3ptm, 41 Pts, 6 Reb, 8 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO

If you’ve been in a coma recently, you probably haven’t heard about Gilbert Arenas’ apparent gun-related incident with teammate Javaris Crittenton. The situation has quickly grown from a murmur to a full-blown drama that could end poorly for Arenas and the Wizards, who may have even more reason to bust up the disappointing team and aim to rebuild.

As more details emerge about the incident, it becomes clearer that there could be serious repercussions for Arenas, who had a run-in with law enforcement in 2003 related to a concealed weapon and driving without a license.

All fantasy implications aside (for now), what do you think will be the outcome of all this? Let us know by voting in the poll below (you can choose more than one answer) and conveying your thoughts in the comments section below. (continue reading…)
