Chris Webber and Earl Boykins: Living On A Prayer

Chris Webber - Fantasy Basketball????...Oh…We’re Half Way There….????

Almost as a little addition to yesterday’s Wire to Wire, I wanted to add two new names that you fantasy folks may want to keep an eye on: Chris Webber and Earl Boykins.

Webber has officially signed with the Golden State Warriors, despite many people still wondering exactly “why.”  While Webber is undoubtedly older, slower and in all-around worse shape than he was a year ago when he gallivanted around Detroit, Golden State seems to be a breading ground for fantasy relevance.  As of now, I think C-Webb will have more of a negative impact on the fantasy value of others (see Biedrins, Andris and Harrington, Al) - but this doesn’t mean he should be counted out.  Don Nelson may make this thing work!

In other news of players deciding to jump in the game at the half way point, Empty the Bench sheds some light on the fact that sparkplug and resident all-around tiny guy Earl Boykins may in fact be signed by this time next week.  Where he’ll land is to be determined, but odds are that he isn’t owned in any leagues right now.  In fact, he may not even be in the database, so you may have to wait this one out.  Boykins has always been an instant-offense threat, so if he ends up somewhere that could use the backcourt help (Cleveland, San Antonio, etc.), he may have some decent second-half value.

Just a few players to keep on the old radar.  Now carry on.
