Carmelo Anthony versus the New Jersey Nets

Carmelo Anthony may soon be joining the New Jersey Nets if he agrees to sign a contract extension, therefore leaving the Denver Nuggets, a team he’s played for for seven seasons.  The trade includes the Utah Jazz and Charlotte Bobcats as well with the primary players being moved being Andrei Kirilenko and Derrick Favors to the Nuggets and Devin Harris to the Bobcats.  Rumors have the Nuggets holding out, hoping for a better deal, but considering they’re not in a position to rescind trades since Anthony will most assuredly leave the team after the season at the latest, expect the only hold-up being Anthony agreeing to an extension with the Nets.

December 2009 NBA All Star Potential Starters

Posted by Phil Partington Categories: Editorial, NBA,

LeBron James versus Kobe BryantFan voting is a major folly of the NBA All-Star Game. Each year, NBA fans are allowed to vote to determine which players start in the esteemed game. The problem with this format is that 1) fans on the whole don’t know squat about which players actually deserve the honor, and 2) fans are biased. Since online voting has been allowed, Chinese players, such as Yao Ming, have had an unfair advantage due to their huge popularity in China. This leads to a tainted All-Star Game, where, in all likelihood Yao may be voted in as the starting center for the Western Conference, despite not playing in one single game this season to injury.

With that in mind, here are the players—after considering only the first month of the season—who deserve to start in the 2010 NBA All Star Game in February.

NBA Fantasy Alphabet: Western Conference, Week 2

I appreciate musical mash-ups. Fantasy Alphabet will be my mash-up combining articles that look at hot waiver wire pick-ups, players of the week, and notable injuries. The format will consist of quick hits focusing on one player per team, and arranged in alphabetical order to help make quick scanning easier.

Dallas Mavericks: Erick Dampier. It looks like one crazy season ahead if Dampier can generate significant fantasy buzz. Since arriving in Dallas, he has never averaged double digits in points or rebounding, but so far he is doing just that. He has also pumped up his shot-blocking. Consider him as a sneaky play for the short-term as he could net you wins in the big ball categories (he has also been shooting 66%!), but the long-term outlook remains capped on the low side.

Fantasy NBA: Analysis of Third Round

Paul Pierce

The third round seems shallow this year, especially towards the tail-end. Thus, the third name you call on draft night stands to be the make-or-break selection. A lot of good prospects seem available in the middle rounds, and the list of attractive players to take a flier on in the last couple of rounds looks extra-long heading into this season. The challenge ahead will be how to pass the baton around the track from your top two picks to the targeted sleepers.

As before, let us look at the average draft position (ADP) rankings from Yahoo, with some specific consideration towards head-to-head leagues.
