Antawn JamisonAntawn Jamison is riding shotgun to Gilbert Arenas in the Washington Wizard’s offense, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s like riding in the passenger seat of a Ferrari, so who the heck cares who’s driving! Last year, Antawn stepped in as the secondary scorer with the departure of Larry Hughes to Cleveland. He was close to joining the exclusive 20-10 big-man club averaging 20.5 points and 9.3 rebounds last year.

DescriptionSo, a friend of mine always seems to bring up turnovers when considering drafting a player and while I can understand why (as it is one of the nine basic categories in fantasy basketball) I can’t help but to say the following:

Who cares.

No disrespect to my friend, as he does know his fantasy hoops, but I just don’t care so much about this business of turnovers.  I’m not saying to knowingly punt the category, but I am saying don’t care about it as much as you do points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, 3-pointers made, and the percentages when you draft.  Why you ask?

Let me give you my $0.10.

Round 1, pick 7: Gilbert Arenas

On the plus side…

One must look back before moving forward, or something like that. So let’s start by regurgitating some numbers from last year but with the proper perspective. Like the monster players taken already in this draft, Gilbert Grapes can be found at the top of many statistic mountains. He finished fourth in league scoring (29.3 ppg), tied for second in three-pointers per game (2.5) and tied for third in steals per game (2.0). So between the buckets, the moneyballs and the swipes, his game brings everything a fantasy owner is looking for in a lead guard. Of course, assists are part of that mix as well, and though the uneducated may scoff at his 6.1 dime-drops per contest last year, that is still good enough to be among the top 20 in the league.
