It’s Just Your Fantasy (wohowoho)


In September 3 (Manila Time), I will participate in a NBA Fantasy Draft.

And I will give you first dibs on my cheat sheet!

WOOHOO!!!

But will I give my picks that easily?

Hmmm…


In preparation for this draft, I made a cheat sheet where I checked out the 100 most important players that would give me the edge in the coming NBA season.

However, aside from the basic stats, I also considered how the team fared last season. I also selected the stats the particular player played after he was traded or where he was signed up now. This means Lebron James inherited Miami’s 47-win record even if he was the reason why Cleveland was victorious in 61 games.

Oh and by the way, if you think on investing on Antawn Jamison because the Cavs wom 61 games last season, you need to be extra sure that Cleveland would at least win 35 games this season.

Here are my suggested Top 100 picks if you are a Fantasy League owner.

By the way… MY TEAM IS THE LA MESA DAMN!!!

YEAH!!!

Ehem.

The order of the players was tabulated and not fabricated. If you can see the list, you’ll find that most of the top guys came from winning teams and are proven draws in terms of points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks from the 2009-10 NBA regular season. Of course, fouls and turnovers are also factors. The players listed played 27 minutes and more last season so that means they should at least score a tremendous amount of playing time next season.

Yes, heads will probably look at this checklist with a huge WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS DUDE SMOKING gawk but you need to understand, I am joining a fantasy league where wins are important.

Or maybe…

Just maybe…

I’m just pulling your leg.

Hmmm…

Face it, the Cavaliers would probably drop and the Knicks would soar, which makes Stoudemire’s 97th spot “a huge misunderstanding”. If you look at it, there are a lot of top-named players I left out because of their team’s stinking records.

Some of which are Tyreke Evans (Kings), Chris Kaman (Clippers), Stephen Curry (Warriors), Rodney Stuckey, Rip Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Tracy McGrady, and Ben Gordon (Pistons), Kevin Love, Mike Beasley, and Darko Milicic (Timberwolves). Hell, these were stats from last year’s NBA season. Which means what wonders will a returning Greg Oden, Michael Redd, Gilbert Arenas, Blake Griffin, and Yao Ming would give their respective squads! And then there are the rookies highlighted by John Wall, Evan Turner, and Derrick Favors.

By the way, we will draft lots. The top pick of the first round will be the last pick of the second and it will alternate until all of the teams acquire 13 picks. There will be eight starters in the roster where there will be four bench players and a reserve from the injured list.

Admittedly though, I was never a fan of offense-oriented players and I adore players with a certain kind of swagger. In my short list would be Dwight Howard because there are no centers in the draft that can match his capabilities. I am a huge Kevin Garnett fan so even if he is not that big anymore in terms of stats, I will picking for the sole purpose of respect. I will try to gamble on a couple of veterans and rookies and I will definitely get Darko Milicic or trade for him… when someone takes him.

Will the Lakers, Heat, and Celtics, get a tremendous wad of picks?

Game over.
