Fantasy Friday: Point Guards

Point Guards are necessary to a great fantasy team. They can provide assists, steals, and great 3 point shooting. The best fantasy point guards grab rebounds and average a great amount of points. So who are the best point guards in fantasy land. Well, here they are.

10. Goran Dragic: You will see him get more assists this season with the Heat and hopefully shoot the same. However you will probably see a drop in points with Dragic. Would be a good guy to have on your team though.

9. Mike Conley: A good offensive player but you can't forget about his offense. Great guy to have as he will give you steals and will give you assists as well as the points.

8. Kyle Lowry: I don't think his PPG will go up. I do however think that his assists numbers will rise. A thing to be concerned about is his turnovers as he averaged 3 in the playoffs last year. Another thing to note is that his 3 point percentage is dipping down to 33%. Kyle Lowry is a very streaky shooter, something to be concerned about.

7. Derrick Rose: The former MVP averaged over 17 PPG last season and should be noted that he does great in every other category, but with many past injuries, Derrick Rose could come with a price. Should you take Derrick Rose? Well, that's up to you.

6. Damian Lillard: While Damian Lillard averaged 21 PPG last season, that number is expected to rise. He will probably be one of the top scorers in the league. This man is a great 3 point shooter to top it off. So why is he ranked so low? Damian Lillard is very inconsistant. He had 28 games where he scored under 18 points. Also, he averages only 6.2 Assists. He isn't the best point guard for fantasy available.

5. Kyrie Irving: Kyrie averages about 21 PPG and shoots the ball really well from deep. While he isn't very well in the assist department, he can play great defense, getting 1.5 Steal per game. Kyrie is a much better defensive player than he is given credit for. You shouldn't have him as your main offensive focus, but you should have him for some defense and offense.

4. Chris Paul: He is one of the best fantasy players. He can score, pass, shoot, steal, and commit few turnovers. However, after a season with no injuries, I have a feeling that Paul will fall and his numbers will drop. If he is available at the right time, I would take him though.

3. Stephen Curry: We all know Curry. He can score, and shoot the ball. He will provide you with some steals, but he will score and shoot. You will not be short of 3's if you have him on your team. Yes he will provide some assists and a couple rebounds, but again, he will score and shoot.

2. Russell Westbrook: He was an amazing fantasy player last year. Almost averaged a triple double. Averaged over 2 steals per game. Your saying, "Why isn't he number 1?" Well, 3 reasons. Westbrook averaged 4.4 Turnovers last season. He shot under 30% from 3 point range. And to top it off, when Durant comes back, Westbrook's numbers are sure to drop. Don't get me wrong, he is a great fantasy player, he just isn't the best point guard. But this is the person who is...

1. John Wall: Shocker huh. John Wall averaged a little more than 17 PPG but it was all the other numbers that made up for it. 10 assists per game, 4.6 rebounds per game, 1.7 steals per game, and 0.6 blocks per game. Wall's numbers, I would assume, will climb even high this next season. I think he will probably get up to 20 PPG this next season. That is why J-Wall is number 1.

Throwback Thursday: The Big Trade

On August 27, 1999, 11 players were traded to a different team. It was a 3-team trade between the the Houston Rockets, Vancover Grizzlies, and the Orlando Magic. Take a look at who got who.

Houston Traded: Michael Dickerson, Othella Harrington, Brent Price, Antoine Carr, and a first round draft pick

Houston Received: Steve Francis, Tony Massenburg, Don MacLean, and a first round draft pick (Orlando)

Vancover Traded: Steve Francis, Tony Massenburg, Michael Smith, Rodrick Rhodes, Lee Mayberry, and Makhtar Ndiaya

Vancover Received: Michael Dickerson, Othella Harrington, Brent Price, Antoine Carr, and a first round draft pick (Houston)

Orlando Traded: Don MacLean, and a first round draft pick.

Orlando Received: Michael Smith, Rodrick Rhodes, Lee Mayberry, and Makhtar Ndiaya

Vancover's Benefits:
Michael Dickerson averaged about 18 PPG after being traded to the Grizzlies, but the 3-point shooter's career was cut short by injury.  He only played 5 seasons in the NBA.

Othella Harrington played 2 seasons with the Grizzlies and averaged about 13 Points the first year and about 11 points the next.

Brent Price averaged averaged less than 3.4 PPG in only 47 games with the Grizzlies.

Antonie Carr played 1 season with the Grizzlies before retiring. That season he averaged 3.2 point per game in only 21 games with the Grizzlies

The Houston Rockets' first round pick that was traded to the Grizzlies ended up being Marcus Banks. He was then later traded to Boston.

Houston's Benefits: 
Steve Francis ended up having a great career with the Rockets  and at one point in his 5 years with them, he averaged 21.6 PPG, 7 RPG, and 6.4 APG, and 1.2 Steals. After that he ended up going to the Orlando Magic. In the 2007-08 season, he would return for one season with the Rockets before he retired. He averaged 5.5 PPG that season.

Tony Massenburg played one season with the Rockets before going back to Vancover. He averaged just 4.2 PPG in that one season.

Don Maclean was immediately traded to the Phoenix Suns.

Jason Collins was traded to the New Jersey Nets.

Orlando's Benefits:
Michael Smith was traded to the Washington Wizards.

Rodrick Rhodes was traded to the Dallas Mavericks.

Lee Mayberry never played another game after the trade.

Makhtar Ndiaya never played an NBA game.

Loser of the trade: Orlando Magic
They didn't even get a player from the trade that played for them.

Winner Of The Trade: Houston Rockets
While Vancover got Michael Dickerson and some key role players, they all succumbed to injuries. Houston got a franchise player, Steve Francis, who really helped the team and was an MVP candidate. That is why they are the winner of this large trade.

J.R. Smith: The Wild Card

JR Smith Cavs - 2015.jpg

As you might have heard, J.R. Smith has just signed a new deal with the Cavaliers. What does this mean for the team? What does this mean for J.R.? All questions will be revealed.

What Impact will J.R. Smith Have on the Team? J.R. Smith really isn't your best 3 point shooter on the team. He shot 426 three pointers while only shooting 38% from 3 point range but that isn't bad knowing that Lou Williams shot 447 three pointers while only shooting just 34% from long range. J.R. Smith will be a help with just taking some ease off LeBron James and others. J.R. to me will have to some off the bench next season as Kyrie and Shumpert start at the Guard position. I think he will be at the SG position next to Mo Williams and you will see Smith's numbers go down to him being more of a team player next to Mo Williams.

What's Cavaliers Next Move? If the Cavaliers do sign Tristan Thompson, they will trade off someone. It could be Varejao or Mozgov, but one of those bigs will go and will be traded for a much better role player like Corey Brewer or Mike Dunleavey. Matthew Dellavadova (I'm sorry Cleveland fans but he) should not be in the lineup and should not play bench as he should be inserted in if someone gets injured. Other than that, I think he shouldn't really get much playing time due to the fact that there are plenty of much better guards than him on that team. I think that the team this year is going to have a much stronger bench and that they will be ready for another Finals run.

What about a J.R. trade? It is unlikely and I think that J.R. is going to be their support guy. I mean, c'mon, you never know if you will get a 2-22 night or an 8-8 night from 3 point range. But that is alright if he is a bench player. He will be their some nights, and the nights he isn't, the other guys will do great. I think J.R. is one the perfect team this year because the Cavs are not going to need him to score all the time if he does come off the bench. If he were to get traded just because something went wrong, I would assume him to be traded in a deal for a guy like Jamal Crawford or Gerald Henderson and he and Mozgov or Varejao would be sent away. That would be my assumption.

Does J.R. get more flagrant fouls? Yes, this guy has a very big temper, of course he does. That is something that J.R. will always have and it's not really a good thing. The last thing you would want is DeMarcus Cousins and J.R. Smith on the same team. Bad things would happen. You think George Carl and DeMarc are bad, think about them.

Did the Cavs make a good move? Yes, I think they made a wonderful more. J.R. Smith would be great off the bench and he will be an important piece for the Cavaliers to make the Finals. I think the Cavs made a great decision that they won't regret. Good luck to the Cavs and J.R.

The (New) New York Knicks

Kristaps Porzingis.jpg

The New York Knicks have an improved roster. No doubt. I mean, if your roster has Louis Amundson as your starting PF, that isn't too good. You won't win many games. But now it's looking a lot better. There is still a lot of work to be done but just take a look at it.

PG- Jose Calderon (starter), Jerian Grant (bench), Sasha Vujacic (res.)
SG- Arron Afflalo (starter), Langston Galloway (bench), Cleanthony Early (res.)
SF- Carmelo Anthony (starter), Lance Thomas (bench), Thanasis Antetokounmpo (res.)
PF- Derrick Williams (starter), Kevin Seraphin (bench), Louis Amundson (res.)
C- Robin Lopez (starter), Kristaps Porzingis (6th man), Kyle O'Quinn (res.)

Not a bad roster, is it? They have a strong bench and some great role players. And with Carmelo comming back they could easily make a spot in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

However, I think that the Knicks will be a new beginning for some players. Derrick William will hopefully live more up to the potential that they said he had as he was drafted number 2 overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2011 draft. After not really improving much, he was sent to the Sacramento Kings where he had also not improved and now the Knicks have signed him this off-season.

Arron Afflalo is a guy who knows Carmelo Anthony from when he played for the Denver Nuggets. They will be great to watch playing together. And backing him up will be Langston Galloway. His rookie season was great until it was shortened by injury. With him coming off the bench, the Knicks bench will have no trouble in the scoring department.

Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant will look to be developing and learning along the way. They might not be starters or star players but they will have important roles for the Knicks to have success this upcoming season.

Carmelo Anthony will look to be making the playoffs after coming off an injury. He will be taking on the main scoring load but he will finally have some other players to give the ball when he needs some help with scoring. And if everyone is healthy I would expect the Knicks to at least come close to making the playoffs this season. With Jose Calderon working with Robin Lopez on the pick and roll, with Afflalo coming off screens, and with Derrick Williams going up for some high-flying dunks, this should be a fun year for the Knicks. And they should do well as long as they don't have Louis Amundson starting.

Fantasy Friday: Riskies

This week on Fantasy Friday, we are going to talk about all you people that like to take risks. Because if you like to take risks, these are the guys you need to take. With these players, there will be risk, but the rewards could be high. So let's count 'em down!

10. Karl-Anthony Towns: This guy is a big risk. He will probably be one of the best fantasy players alongside Anthony Davis in the future, but we have no idea how his rookie season will be.We know that he can play great defense, shoot the ball, rebound, and pass. But we don't know how he will be.

9. Otto Porter: Going into his 3rd season in the NBA, Otto Porter is looking for major improvement. After averaging 10 PPG, 8 RPG, 1.8 APG, and 1.2 SPG and shooting 37% from the 3 point line in the playoffs, he could defiantly be a great addition to your team, but he could also just end up averaging 6 PPG.

8. Tristan Thompson: This man could be your guy to get your rebounds, blocks, assists, and hopefully some points. If he plays enough. The Cavs have such a big roster for PF and Centers including Kevin Love, Varejao, and Mozgov, that Thompson might not get much playing time.

7. Wesly Matthews: Coming off an injury is tough, and not to mention, he is on a completely different team. The question is can Matthews do it. I mean this guy could average 20 PPG this year, and he could average 11PPG this year. We don't know so buyer beware.

6. Tim Duncan: Timmy could be a great addition to your team. But let's face it, Ol' Timmy's gettin' old. It might not be long before he gets a severe injury or his numbers drop drastically due to his age. Last year he averaged about 14 PPG, 9.1 RPG, 3 APG, and 2 Blocks per game, so he could average those numbers again, or he could go "it's time to hang 'em up". So take him if you want, but you could end up with a retiree by the end of the season.

5. Joe Johnson: Johnson averaged 14 PPG last season, but now his fellow overpaid player, Deron Williams, is gone. Which could open up the for Johnson to get into the offense. You can't forget just how great Joe Johnson is, but you also can't forget how he looks nothing like his old self. Are you willing to take the chance with Joe?

4. Deron Williams: Deron Williams hasn't averaged this low of point since his rookie year and his assist numbers are way down too. But maybe all Deron Williams needed was a change of scenery right back to his hometown to get him going again. He could be averaging 18 PPG and 10 APG again, or be even lower. So go ahead and get him, just don't say I didn't warn you.

3. Brook Lopez: This could be Brook Lopez's healthy season, or it could be another one where he has another foot injury. Chances are it's the foot injury. But, if he is healthy, you could be getting 20 points and 20 rebounds along with 5 blocks a night. Wouldn't that be nice? Yeah, it would! Brook Lopez is a BIG risk, but the rewards are so valuable.

2. Kevin Martin: This man always seems to average about 20 PPG. Snubbed as an all-star about 3 times, this guy will just score and score and score, that is, if he can stay healthy. He had a broken wrist last season and didn't know. He scored 37 points right after he broke it in a game. He was out for a while. While he did get a broken wrist, most of Martin's injuries have been minor. But another problem facing Martin is that he may need to step it down on the scoring as many other scorers such as Wiggins, LaVine, Shabazz, and Towns step into the mix. This could mean that Martin would have to step down on the scoring, but he could end up averaging 20 PPG again.

1. Paul George: After that freak of nature incident with Team USA, Paul George has came back averaging 8.8 PPG in 6 games, but we all know that if he is back to his old self next season, you need him on your team. Paul George is entering his 6th season. In the 2013-14 season (the year before his injury) George averaged 21.7 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 3.5 APG, and 1.9 Steals per game while only giving up 2.5 turnovers per game. Paul Goerge would be one of the best players to have on your fantasy roster if he were to average those numbers again. So go ahead and take him, because he is worth the risk.

So if your feeling lucky, go ahead and take some of these guys, but if you aren't just stay away from them. These guys are high risk high reward. So go head and take them, if you dare!

5 Things You Probably Don't Know About LeBron James

 "LeBron James 3408968580" by Keith Allison from Baltimore, USA - LeBron James. Licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0 via Commons -

LeBron James is said to be the best player in the world. At least, that's what the commentators and announcers tell you. But what don't they tell you about LeBron. Well, I'm about to tell you 5 things that you probably don't know about LeBron James.

5. LeBron James is 4th in Playoff Turnovers for all-time.
LeBron has given up the ball a lot and he is not even done with his career. He has 625 total turnovers and is only 72 Turnovers away from passing up Magic Johnson. He has been very careless with the ball averaging 3.5 Turnovers per game in the playoffs.

4. When LeBron is wide open, he only makes about 38% of his shots.
Wide open means that there is no defender within 6ft. Those shots should be automatic. Instead, he only makes 38% of those shots!

3. LeBron does not do that well in Isolation.

LeBron usually goes into isolation, and the longer he stays in it, the more his field goal percentage goes down. And his 3 point% actually drops below 30%. Great isolation players like James Harden actually have their percentages rise.

2. When the team is healthy, LeBron only passes to Kevin Love and Kyrie.
This one to me isn't a shocker. LeBron claims that he plays point and works the offense, but he really doesn't run an offense. The fact is LeBron almost immediately goes into isolation then passes to one of the stars that he plays with (Kevin Love or Kyrie Irving). In fact, Kevin Love rarley even passes to the other players. Does that sound like an offense. J.R. Smith get passed to by LeBron about 4.2 times per game. In fact, John Wall gives out more passes to Bradley Beal then LeBron does to Kyrie but Wall also gives more to all the starters and dishes about 4-5 per game to bench players Rasul Butler, Otto Porter, and Kris Humphris. That is a player running an offense. Getting not just the stars involved, but everyone.

1. LeBron is a below league average shooter.

I hear all the time that LeBron is a great shooter. All the time I hear that. I say, "he isn't the shooter you think he is". LeBron is indeed below league average on his shooting. You just have to look at the stats. Take a look at this chart that provides.

As you can see, from 5 to 22 feet, he is below league average, and from 23 to 30 feet he is also below league average. And yet, LeBron takes more 3 pointers than most players, take a look at the shot Frequency chart provided by below.

As you can see, LeBron take a lot of shots, and misses a lot of shots. Take a look at the Zones for his shooting also provided by

These are the areas where LeBron shoots under 35% from. That's a lot of blue. As you can see, outside of the paint, he doesn't shoot that well. And it's unfortunate for players that are idolized like LeBron for them to have these stats that go unnoticed. Many people don't even realize how this guy plays and how he shoots. I'd like to thank and for providing all of these stats. I hope that this article provides a better outlook on LeBron James for you. Comment below if you have any questions or disagreements.

Will Coach Popovich be Able to Make a Player out of Jimmer Fredette?

Jimmer Fredette Kings.jpg
"Jimmer Fredette Kings" by Mike - Flickr: (2013-12-21) Kings at Magic 33. Licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0 via Wikimedia Commons.

Jimmer Fredette is going into his sixth NBA season with the San Antonio Spurs. In the 2011 draft, he went 10th and was picked by the Milwaukee Bucks. He was later traded to the Sacramento Kings. His rookie season was an okay season with the Sacramento Kings. He averaged a good 7.6 PPG, 1.8 APG, and shot 36.1% from the 3 point line. While Fredette looked like he was on track, his second season was about the same as the first. Jimmer shot about 41% from the 3 point line in his second season, while shooting over 150 three pointers. Jimmer still only averaged about 7 PPG though. His 3rd season with the Kings, he only averaged 5.9 PPG. He did however shoot 49.3% from the 3 point line but he only shot 73 threes. While his offense wasn't improving, his defensive rating was an average of 108.25 out of those three seasons! After the Kings saw no improvement in Jimmer's offense and seeing that he couldn't play defense, they traded him.

Jimmer was traded to the Bulls where he played only 8 games. Tom Thibodeau, the head coach of the Bulls at the time, was a defensive coach and couldn't work with Fredette. Jimmer averaged only 4 PPG and shot only 36% with the Bulls.

The Pelicans decided to give Jimmer a chance, signing him to a 1 year deal. Jimmer had his worst season yet. With the Pelicans, he averaged 3.6 PPG, 1.2 APG, and only shot 18% from the 3 point line! Even though he shot horrible, he did however, improve his defense a little bit. It wasn't much, and it still wasn't good, but he did lower it to 104.9. The Pelicans saw that they didn't want Fredette and didn't bother to sign him.

Jimmer was signed to a 1-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs this summer. The question for everyone is will Coach Gregg Popovich be able to get Jimmer to become a better player. Jimmer has not been able to improve and people are hoping that he will be able to get better with the Spurs this season. The only problem facing Jimmer, is that 3 people from the Spurs are going to get cut. Jimmer having experience, could be able to make the team, but it will be tough. He is going to have to play extra hard if he is going to be able to make it.

Even if Jimmer makes the team, he won't get much time and he might not even play at all. Take a look at the bench depth at the guard positions.

PG- Tony Parker (starter), Patty Mills (bench)
SG- Danny Green (starter), Manu Ginobili (bench), Ray McCollum (Res.), Jonathan Simmons (Res.)

As you can see, with 7 guards on the team, Jimmer might not get any playing time at all.

Coach Popovich might be able to make Fredette a team player. If he can do that, Jimmer would have a spot in the NBA as a great bench player of even a starter. Fredette has to realize though that this could very well be his last chance in the NBA. Whether the Spurs play him, or send him to the D-league, he has to play his best. Coach Popovich has to help him and show him his defensive tips. And with last year's defensive player of the year, Kawhi Leonard, he might be able to really help Fredette with defense. With the Spurs being a team that gets everyone involved in their offense, this would be a great place for Jimmer to start over at. That is, if he can make the team.

Fantasy Friday: Sleepers (Aug. 14)

Well, when you are picking people to be on your fantasy roster, there are those who you will want to pick, but then there are the people who you won't even think about picking, so I'm going to tell you who those people are. They are, the sleepers.

10. Derrick Favors: This guys averages 16 PPG, 8 RPG, and 1.5 APG last season. This season will be even better for the guy if he can stay healthy. He will really help you on the defensive end as he averaged over 1 block per game last season.

9. Ricky Rubio: This guy might give you the occasional 20 point game, but he is much more valuable on the other categories. He will for sure give you the assists as he dished out about 8.8 APG last season. He will also rebound for you as Rubio is a big rebounder. Last, he will give you steals, many of them. He has been second in the league in steals 2 years. You might be concerned Rubio won't be healthy but he has been through an 82 game season. It will be a risk if you take him.

8. Wesly Matthews: This man can really help you on offense as he makes almost 3 three pointers a game but can also be a big help on defense I don't know how he will fit on the Mavs but I'm assuming his defensive numbers will go up on that team.

7. Eric Bledsoe: This is a great PG to have on your fantasy team. He will give you offense but he will also rebounds and assists as he averaged 5.2 RPG and about 6 APG. I would pick this defiantly pick this guy up if you can. He is a great fantasy guy.

6. Reggie Jackson: Averaging about 17 PPG with the Pistons last season, Reggie Jackson is looking like a guy that no one seems to be noticing. He will give you scoing and assists. I don't think that he will really be a guy you can rely on to do anything else. And I don't have a clue if he will do really good next to a guy like Branndon Jennings. If you do get Jackson, It should be for scoring and assists.

5. DeMar DeRozan: He is one of the best players on here but I put him at number 5 only because this guy will not be a huge sleeper that everyone skips over. If he does fall to you, I would recommend picking him up. He averaged a quite 20 PPG last season and other than his 3pt%, he doesn't have many downsides.

4. Gordon Hayward: I think Hayward will be a guy that people will pass up on a lot. He averaged a good 19 PPG last season and has contributed in every area for the Jazz. He can shoot the 3 and can help you out with steals. I would pick him up in a heartbeat.

3. Rudy Gay: You absolutely need to watch this guy. He is not only a scoring machine averaging about 21 PPG, but he does everything else. This guy is a wonderful fantasy guy. He would be at number 1 but I think people won't sleep on him as much as the other people, but if this guy come to you, pick him up!

2. Brook Lopez: This guy will give you the FG%, rebounds, scoring, and blocks if he is healthy. He is a risk, a really big risk. However, if he is healthy, he will be a great person to have on your fantasy team. I think that his scoring load will increase now that Deron Williams has left and I believe that he could be even better in fantasy this year. This all will depend on his health though.

1. Nikola Vucevic: This guy is the ultimate fantasy sleeper. You wouldn't really think about Vucevic when you think of the Magic, but that is who you should think of. He is really going to be an offensive guy as he averages over 19 PPG and 2 assists. Not to mention, this guy shot about 52% from the field. The biggest thing is that he is one of few people to average a double-double as he had 10.9 RPG. This would be the sleeper to pick up if he falls down to you. Get Vucevic if you can. He will make you team so much better.

Remember, sleepers aren't always the best available, so don't pick Vucevic if you have the #1 pick. Don't do it! But if people pass on these guys, get em!
