Now that the NBA has announced its All-Star starters for 2010-11, it’s our turn. In case you missed it, back in late December we posted our “ballots” for the 2010-11 NBA fantasy All-Stars. The idea behind this was, “If the NBA can have us vote on each season’s All-Stars, why can’t we do the same for fantasy basketball?” Well, the people have spoken.

It’s clear that some players earned the most votes based purely on their straight-up values so far this season. In other cases, the reasons were a bit less obvious. Some races were close, others were blowouts. Below is a rundown of the results, along with my own votes and brief comments. (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Kevin Durant went bonkers last night, posting 47 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and four three-pointers in an overtime victory over the Timberwolves. He shot 54 percent (15-28) from the field, 93 percent (13-14) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. This was easily one of the superior fantasy performances of the season so far.

Lines for Discussion:
Roy Hibbert: 2-6 FG (33%), 0-2 FT (0%), 4 Pts, 2 Reb, 2 TO

Chauncey Billups: 9-16 FG (56%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 threes, 26 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast (continue reading…)

Wilson Chandler

How 'bout that Chandler. (NBA.com)

You’re finally getting used to typing “2011,” trade rumors are alive and all your fantasy teams are foundering (or, maybe that’s just me) — yep, it’s about the midpoint of the NBA regular season. This is a great opportunity to take a look back and forward, all in one post.

Players will be grouped by position and ranked based on their approximate Yahoo! average-based rankings so far this season. The first letter grade after each player’s name will be based on their performance thus far, in addition to how they’ve fallen short of, met or exceeded expectations; and the second grade will be based on their projected value for the second half of the season.

The full post is over at DimeMag.com, but below is an abridged version of the Fantasy Basketball 2010-11 Midseason Report Card: (continue reading…)

Weekend Wonder: Kevin Garnett looked young again this past weekend, averaging 16.5 points, 15.5 rebounds, 5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1 block and 0.5 turnovers in two games this past weekend. He also shot 63 percent from the field and 90 percent from the free-throw line. KG is thriving so far this season, though he’ll be a sell-high candidate soon enough.

Lines for Discussion:
Manu Ginobili (12/3): 1-10 FG (10%), 13-13 FT (100%), 1 three, 16 Pts, 1 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO

Carlos Boozer (12/4): 9-15 FG (60%), 7-10 FT (70%), 25 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)
