Fantasy Basketball Fast Break (Week of 10/23)

We opened the NBA and fantasy basketball season on Tuesday with two potential conference finals matchups. Sounds great, right? Well, just a little over five minutes into the first quarter of the Boston/Cleveland showdown, Gordon Hayward came down hard. It looked like he just hurt his back at first, but then you heard Marv Albert break the news, “Heyward broke his leg! Hayward has broken his leg.” No matter what team you root for, you never want to see something like this happen. Unfortunately, Hayward wasn’t the only…

Fantasy Impact from the Gordon Hayward Injury

As a Celtics fan, writing this article totally sucks. Barely over five minutes into his Celtics career, Gordon Hayward came down hard on an alley-oop attempt and from the reaction from the Cleveland bench, you knew something was drastically wrong.

With six potential stars in the draft, 20 percent of the league may have just added a vital piece to winning a championship. Note: The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards did not have a selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. Atlanta Hawks: B- John Collins, Tyler Dorsey, Alpha Kaba The Hawks' selection of John Collins makes…

Scouting the 2017 NBA Draft: Mock Draft

With the draft in sight, it's time to take a look at potential landing spots for this year's top prospects. Fit, talent, and draft history of teams were all taken into account with this mock, which includes a franchise cornerstone at the top, an international riser falling out of the top 10, and a downtrodden franchise landing some serious upside. 1. Philadelphia 76ers (from Celtics) – Markelle Fultz, Guard, Washington After completing a trade to move up to the first pick, the Sixers will almost assuredly take Fultz. Fultz…
