  1. Adding, dropping in fantasy hoop playoffs

    Eric Karabell

    I've managed to reach the finals in each of my ESPN head-to-head fantasy basketball leagues, and at this point my main goal has been to accumulate games. I rarely pay much attention to the percentages. I'm picking up two or three players pe...

  2. Welcoming H2H hoop playoffs, free agents

    Eric Karabell

    For those who casually check their ESPN fantasy basketball head-to-head teams, check a little closer this week. The playoffs are here! To quote Jim Mora, "Playoffs?" Sure, not all of you made it, but if you did and thought you'd passively make l...

  3. Watching turnovers in fantasy hoops

    Eric Karabell

    The year was either 1994 or 1995, and the draft pick was Shawn Kemp. I needed points, rebounds and blocks, and we had already protected a few players on our fantasy basketball teams, five I think. I was surprised to see Kemp available in the draft. T...

  4. Old men Cassell, Magloire finding work

    Eric Karabell

    In ESPN fantasy basketball leagues, we have something called the undroppable list. The names on there are the top players in the league, and the reason we have it is so that the integrity of fantasy leagues is protected by people not dropping Kevin G...

  5. Some 25 centers to keep over Shaq

    Eric Karabell

    If you've been playing fantasy basketball for more than a few years, you know how good Shaquille O'Neal can be. The guy used to be a fantasy monster, a high first-round pick who scored, rebounded, blocked and made his field goals. And he wo...

  6. Kirilenko backs us into corner

    Eric Karabell

    Utah's Andrei Kirilenko is owned in 100 percent of ESPN's fantasy basketball leagues, which is to say he's wisely owned everywhere. But in how many of those leagues are the owners thinking about dealing him? I own Kirilenko in one leag...

  7. Adding Hughes won't mean much

    Eric Karabell

    We don't often see a fantasy basketball player go from barely owned to 91.4 percent popular based on one game, or in a matter of days, unless they are special. We want to be able to count on good performances going forward. Well, as someone who ...

  8. Adding, dropping Kings in hoops

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy basketball can be a maddening game when you depend on a certain player, but he either doesn't perform or he doesn't get the opportunity to. This John Salmons situation in Sacramento, for example, is annoying. Yes, I am one of the ma...

  9. Breaking down the non-scorers

    Eric Karabell

    Way back in that 30-team draft I tend to keep referring to, I chose Reggie Evans as one of my selections, with the full knowledge Andre Miller could give him the basketball in the paint and with nobody covering him, he still might not score. Evans is...

  10. Welcome to fantasy hoops '08

    Eric Karabell

    While fantasy basketball drafts are normally about getting stars and building a balanced team, I won't soon forget the best pick I made, or at least the most memorable one. Turn the clock all the way back to the fall of 1989, in my formative yea...
