  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. Get Jazzed about Korver's value

    Eric Karabell

    No team in the Association needed a Kyle Korver more than the Utah Jazz. Entering Monday, the Jazz was hitting a league-low 3.7 3-pointers per game, well below most of the other contenders in the West. Golden State, Phoenix and San Antonio are all ra...

  11. Early watch list in new hoops season

    Eric Karabell

    These real-life NBA trades are kind of ridiculous. I'm not talking about the endless, incessant Kobe Bryant rumors (just deal him already!), but these minor deals that keep showing up. David Wesley got sent from New Orleans to New Jersey for two...

  12. 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...
