Andrew BogutOur draft blog wraps up with this pick. The season snuck up on us, so we will have to cut it short. The wrap-around pick at the end of the snake has been fun. This player was queued up by Sarge near the end of the sixth round, but a last-minute substitute happened when news of the injury broke. He seems like great value here.

Round 7, Pick 12: Andrew Bogut, PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks

Kevin GarnettKG, are you pumped for the new season? I bet you are. I bet we all are. Leave the trick or treating to the kids, because there is a double-header to start the 2006-07 season on October 31st!

Ron and I started as a writing tag team. He has been busy dialing in on all the pre-season injuries that have been happening. Me? I have been a bit swamped with other things, but certainly I have hoops on the brain. We are going to go back to our collaborating roots, and quickly look at what is topical as we all head into the new year. 10 random questions, and our two cents, uh, make that 10 cents on the subject.

Marvin Williams in out 6-8 weeks with a broken bone in his left hand. Williams broke his hand during practice on October 26 as he swiped for the ball. Ironically, teammate Speedy Claxton is returning back from breaking the same bone to his left hand. Calcium supplements for all Hawks players, please!

Dennis Velasco, our resident New York Knicks fan has passed on this guy a total of 20 times during this draft blog. Not that this is any indication of this player’s perceived fantasy value, as in the drafts that I have seen, he has often been drafted before this point in our draft blog. With his ability to score he has lots of value in a two-center league. It is just a matter of whether reality can see eye to eye with those expectations by the end of the year.

Round 7, Pick 8: Channing Frye, PF/C, New York Knicks

Hakim WarrickWire to Wire aims to be your waiver wire resource for all of your fantasy basketball needs.  It will dive into playing time trends, injury replacements, and even an occasional category specialist – all of which can be found on a typical waiver wire within your fantasy league at any given time.



For many leagues, this weekend is the one where your fantasy basketball rosters come to fruition.  Preseason activity is over, you’ve scoured the box scores, and you’re ready to roll.  You get your cheat sheets together, put on your “Witness” t-shirt, and start drafting.  OK, maybe that second part is just something that I do, but you get the drift.  It’s go time.  It’s make or break time.  It’s tell your buddies that Pau Gasol is a solid second round pick time! 

I’ve taken part in several mock drafts and real drafts thus far, and let me tell you – no matter what shape or size league you’re in, there is some value to be had in that waiver wire.  Quick note: Everyone and their brothers are talking about Boston’s Rajon Rondo…so I’m choosing not too.  If you think he’ll get playing time, then go for it.  Just remember that there are about 6 legitimate point guards/shooting guards in Bean Town.  Oh, and Paul Pierce will get his time.  You’ve been forewarned.  Wait, I just talked about him…I knew that wouldn’t work.

Let’s dig in.

Samuel Dalembert
Have you ever heard of Dusty Rhodes? Dusty Rhodes, the pinch hitter extraordinaire for the 1954 New York Giants, not Dusty Rhodes, the wrestler. That year Rhodes hit .341 with 15 homers and 50 RBIs: incredible production from only 164 at-bats. The Giants, with Willie Mays as their star, won the World Series that year.

We here at Dropping Dimes will not win anything like the World Series while our star, Dennis Velasco, attends to other matters. But the least I can do is pinch-hit for the guy. He made the pick; I wil provide the words.

Round 7, Pick 3: Samuel Dalembert, C, Philadelphia 76ers

Jameer NelsonRound 6, Pick 12: Jameer Nelson, PG, Orlando Magic

On a team that already has a solid front court in Amare Stoudemire and Chris Kaman, solid wing players in Vince Carter and Caron Butler, as well as some guy named LeBron, the only way I could go with this team would be to solidify the backcourt with a point guard. 

While Jameer Nelson was a bit nicked up last season, once he was given free reign as the point man, he had a nice span of scoring, assists and shooting percentages.  As you’ll notice from my point guard rankings, the fact that Nelson can still hit consistently from the field, while draining the occasional three makes him of great value in my book.

Fantasy Sports R Us was also nice enough to take part in our experts’ roto league. Thanks to Richard Christ for reppin’ them. They can explain what they are about better than I can, so here is what I found on their site…

“FSRU is the #1 most hated fantasy leagues site on the net. Why? Because we have the highest payouts, we are the fastest growing, and damn it we are just flat out the best. Period.”

Check them out. In the meantime, peep what they did at our draft. For full draft results, click here.
