Beast of the Night: LeBron James had himself a dandy homecoming, finishing with 38 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, 1 block and no turnovers. He shot 60 percent (15-25) from the field, 67 percent (6-9) from the free-throw line and hit three three-pointers in just 30 minutes of boo-filled action. I guess it doesn’t matter if Akron hates him – James is unapologetically enjoying “the greatness” in South Beach, though his fantasy owners probably wouldn’t use that word at this point in the season.

Lines for Discussion:
Dwyane Wade: 10-16 FG (63%), 4-8 FT (50%), 22 Pts, 9 Reb, 9 Ast, 3 Stl, 3 TO

Daniel Gibson: 6-14 FG (43%), 5-7 FT (71%), 4 threes, 21 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Tim Duncan hung 23 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks on the Pacers last night, and shot 83 percent (10-12) from the floor, 60 percent (3-5) from the line and had just 1 turnover. He won’t be this good all season long, but shame on you if you’ve forgotten Duncan’s worth.

Lines for Discussion:
Amar’e Stoudemire: 7-16 FG (44%), 5-6 FT (83%), 19 Pts, 10 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Blk, 9 TO

Dwyane Wade: 10-20 FG (50%), 9-12 FT (75%), 1 three, 30 Pts, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 4 TO (continue reading…)

Stephen Curry

Curry will get a lot of applause from fantasy owners this season, but does he make sense at 7.9? (NBA.com)

This week’s Fantasy Basketball Roundtable is hosted over at Give Me The Rock. The topic is: What do you think of Stephen Curry going at an average of 7.9 in Yahoo drafts?

Here’s my take: (continue reading…)
