Look who’s baking hot … Fournier!

Ok, this one is going to need some explaining. So I googled (now a verb!) the word fournier and discovered it means baker in French. The name Fournier is also commonly converted to Fuller in the United States. Useless information! Let’s get to some useful information! This is what I told you way back on my November 1 Add/Drop post: Evan Fournier – 6% – 6%??! That’s shameful...

Fantasy basketball strategy to win your H2H league. Um, Yahoo!

When I was just a young lad playing fantasy basketball many years ago (No, I’m not Irish, but I like Guiness!), there was only one way to play fantasy basketball: Roto style! Personally, I’m still partial to a roto league over H2H leagues but H2H is so popular now that I will start this little series of strategy posts for H2H leagues. After this, I’ll get around to giving you...

Ricky Rubio’s owners are singing the Mo (Williams) better blues!

I’ve never had a high ankle sprain. Hell I don’t even really know what the hell a high ankle sprain is! All I know is that a high ankle sprain is not a regular ankle sprain. If it was, it’d be called an ankle sprain! Unfortunately, last night, Ricky Rubio suffered an ankle sprain of the, um, highest order. A high ankle sprain! Right now there is no time table on how long Ricky...

How Harden is it to make a damn free throw!

Hey, everyone, I’m Keith and I’m guest blogging today for hecman. I run my own fantasy sports blog over at www.wetalkfantasysports.com. We, um, talk fantasy sports! Feel free to check it out. There were 8 games in the NBA last night with lots of fantasy implications. The Houston Rockets moved to 5-0, defeating the Heat in the Miami and for the 4th time this season, James Harden...

I elect Isaiah Canaan but I’m in the minority!

Last night Isaiah Canaan started for the Houston Rockets and dropped 13/2/6 with 2 steals and 3 threes in 30 minutes. He was filling in for that fantasy stud Patrick Beverley. You know, the Patrick Beverley who is averaging 31 minutes, 8 points, 3.5 boards, 3.5 dimes on .41 FG and .50 FT through two games. I’d love to see Isaiah get a real shot at the job but rumor has it that...

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is Moe so grab Curly!

It was a pretty slow day yesterday in the NBA with only 4 games so I’ll go ahead and lead in with the wondrous Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Just 10 little minutes into Chartlotte’s game last night, MKG hurt his rib and was forced to leave the game after already dropping 6/3/0 with a block. He was on his way to another solid game, maybe even his best of the year! But alas, if MKG doesn’t...

I’d Perry much like to own Jones!

Whenever I think of the name Perry I envision some rich white guy saying something like, “Biff, please pass the Grey Poupon.” You have to say with that New England upper crust dickface accent though. You know, the way the guy with the sweater scarf says it! But let’s talk about another Perry. Perry Jones! Here’s what I told you last week in the free hecmanhoops 2014 Fantasy...

Chris Bosh is a butter face but I’ll date him!

All I know is that Chris Bosh’s wife didn’t marry him for his good looks. The man is ugly! Not as ugly as Willie McGee or anything like that but, let’s face it, he was born so ugly his parents almost named him **** Happens. Anyhoo! If you read my pre-season rankings, you probably noticed that I had Chris Bosh ranked higher than other, um, experts. In fact, I had him ranked...

Ok, now that we’ve got the Top 100 Overall for Fantasy Basketball 2014 taken care of, let’s move to the Top 125! I look at this next 25 and see a bunch of guys who can easily be ranked in the top 100. It’s all so subjective! The truth is, nobody is ever going to completely agree with any, um, expert’s rankings.

A few NBA Rookies to Watch 2014!

Fantasy basketball doesn’t always come down to who has the best talent. It sometimes comes down to who has the opportunity. For rookies, it can be hard to break into the rotation, especially if the team has plenty of depth. For those on teams that are lacking talent, opportunity is everything. Rookies can step in immediately and get plenty of playing time. Plenty of playing time...

The real reason the NBA banned Donald Sterling. The post Adam Silver doesn’t want you to read!

Oh, hi, been awhile! Hey, if you had a dollar for every time I’ve said something a bit racist in private you wouldn’t be rich but, I admit, you’d have a buck or three in your pocket. How about you? Let’s face it, everyone’s a little bit racist! Like the Broadway song from Avenue Q! That Donald Sterling guy, however, took it to another, unacceptable, level. We all agree...

The beginning of the End!

It’s that time of the year where we try to end our fantasy basketball seasons strong and get ready to go to battle in the playoffs. How’s your team right now? Hopefully, it’s strong. Real strong. Come Sunday, we will be making those decisions on what players to ditch and what players to hang on to throughout the duration of the playoffs. It looks like we’ll have a few good...

Start Mullens picking up Byron!

Let’s talk about the Philadelphia 76ers! As predicted, there was plenty of movement down in Philly. Or up in Philly if you’re south of PA. Obviously the biggest loser here is Evan Turner (82%) who was shipped to Benchville, Indiana. I immediately dropped him in a shallowish 12 team league for Tim Hardaway, Jr. (21%) It was tough to see him ago after his significant contributions...

If Patty is Milling around the wire then stream him!

When Tony Parker went to the doctor the other day I imagine the conversation went something like this:  ”Where does it hurt, Tony?” … “Well, Doc, it kind of hurts everywhere.”… “Does it hurt here, Tony?” … “Ouch, ouch, yes, yes.” … “How about here, Tony?” … “Ow! Yes!” … “And here, Tony?” … “No, not there, um, that’s my nut sack, Doc...
