Just a couple of weeks left in the regular season, as we all limp towards the finish line with injuries. I have reached a point where I am considering dumping legitimate keepers that can't stay healthy in order to try to salvage things down the stretch. Fortunately for me, I am pretty locked in scoring (first) and rebounding (last), so I can really pinpoint the other categories. Unfortunately, I still need someone who can pass the ball and block shots. Nene fits the bill for me to some extent, but he hasn't played the last four games.
As we work our way towards Pro Basketball's version of the Final Four, injuries have and continue to play a huge role. Is there any doubt that Chicago would have taken care of business against Philadelphia with a healthy Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah?
As we play out the final days of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference with the Boston Celtics..
Are you a big man short from landing in the money in your fantasy league? If you have a shot at the money, it's decision making time. Some don't want to spend any more money on free agents/waivers and ride out what they have. The other option is to spend money to try and gain every point you can down the stretch. While it's hard to find well rounded talent, you can certainly find big men that bring rebounds, blocks, scoring, just not all in one player. We have identified the best power forwards that are available in 50% or more of Flea Flicker leagues.
As we roll into week three of the young 2012 NBA season, time for a roll call across the Association. With an abbreviated training camp and flash free agency, properly projecting who, what and where was certainly a challenge for so called NBA experts. Who did you overpay for? Did you waste a high draft pick on a player mired on the bench? With most teams approaching or at ten games played, we certainly have a better feel for rotations and production. Lets take a look, beginning with the Eastern Conference, specifically the Atlantic Division. Players are shown with percentage owned in Flea Flicker leagues.
