  2. Early thoughts from hoop drafts

    Eric Karabell

    Well, that didn't take long. For much of the summer, when prompted for whom I would take with the first pick in a fantasy hoops draft, I said Kobe Bryant. Love the points, the shooting, the all-around game, look, the guy is a monster. I particip...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. Camby, indispensable fantasy options

    Eric Karabell

    It's a helpless feeling in fantasy sports when a key player -- especially a really key player -- just stops playing, for whatever reason. Dwyane Wade owners certainly aren't pleased today, but the truth is, the reason the Heat shut him down...

  6. Fantasy sleepers on bad East teams

    Eric Karabell

    Go ahead, rip the Eastern Conference. Is it as strong as the West, where the Lakers, Spurs and 10 total teams are above the .500 mark? No, I can't make that case. But you are aware there was a big Eastern Conference game on Wednesday involving t...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Gasol remains first-round fantasy bust

    Eric Karabell

    Yeah, yeah, Wednesday was the big night of debuts for recently traded NBA players, as Shaquille O'Neal looked big and slow in a loss to the Lakers, Jason Kidd got schooled by one of the two point guards averaging more assists this season than he...

  10. Manu's great, but a manu to trade

    Eric Karabell

    I thought I had seen the performance of a lifetime already. It was from Magic Johnson in Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals. I was a young lad in Philly, wondering if this was the year the 76ers would finally end those ridiculous "We Owe You One" promises...

  11. R-Jeff, surprising stat-by-stat numbers

    Eric Karabell

    As we approach the All-Star break in the Association, fantasy owners can pretty much guarantee that the numbers your players are putting up aren't going to change much. A few teams already have played 50 or more games, so what you see is what yo...

  12. 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...

  13. It's really Miller time in Sactown

    Eric Karabell

    After the way Brad Miller treated fantasy owners in 2006-07, his status for this season was more of the sleeper variety. He was someone you'd take a chance on late, a guy you couldn't draft as a sure starter. I couldn't blame you for l...

  14. Parker out, Stoudamire to Spurs?

    Eric Karabell

    I understand how the Grizzlies didn't want Damon Stoudamire around anymore, in part because he's not a great player, but also because he was taking minutes from young kids like Mike Conley and Kyle Lowry. Still, doesn't this seem wrong...

  15. Webber, Andersen seek fantasy returns

    Eric Karabell

    Two players who haven't stepped on the court for an NBA game once this season are on my mind this fine Monday. In one corner, we've got the once-great Chris Webber, still looking for a team to join, so he can give them some boards and bad c...

  16. Arenas, other fantasy hoop busts

    Eric Karabell

    I'm always amused when fantasy owners find reasons for why their teams stink, then try to justify them. I had a bad draft, some like to say. Injuries torpedoed the season, according to others. And this one time, at band camp, someone blamed thei...

  17. Fantasy hoops All-Star starting lineups

    Eric Karabell

    Well, if everyone else is taking a look at the potential NBA All-Star teams, why not in fantasy hoops, too? The thing is, fantasy is much different than the real picks. We don't give extra credit for career achievements, defense or winning; we d...
