We saw many fantasy leagues this season where Isaiah Thomas wasn’t even drafted. Then there were some others where he spent weeks on the free agent list. Sacramento’s lead guard started the year as a backup before eventually earning all of the minutes after Greivis Vasquez was traded, and by that point, if you were lucky enough to have him, you reaped some huge benefits.

Kyle Korver‘s NBA record for consecutive games with a three-pointer ended at 127 on March 5, but his shooting has only continued to get better. After a blistering opening few months, Korver’s accuracy from the field has somehow gotten even better, and this might go down as the single greatest shooting season over the last 32 years.

With the Slam Dunk Contest losing so much steam over the past few years, the Three-Point Shootout may just be the marquee competition of NBA All-Star Weekend’s Saturday night festivities. Consider that as an insult to how watered down and commercial the dunk contest has been, as well as a compliment to how many elite shooters there are in today’s game. With so much of an emphasis being put on the three-point line when teams run their offense, having numerous three-point threats is a necessity to thrive in today’s game. Read More »

Behind every great team, the superstars and the dynasties, are the guys that the average fans don’t know about. Regardless of the amount of talent at the top of the roster, coaches are forced to look for production from role players on a nightly basis.

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (11.22)

Derrick Rose

BUY LOW DERRICK ROSE, Chicago Bulls The slow start after a season off from ACL surgery had to be expected, but a hamstring and neck injury combined with some turf toe that Rose admitted has been bothering him since 2012 has those that invested a first rounder in the former MVP in full-out panic mode. That’s why it’s the perfect time to strike a deal. Averaging only 15.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists, Rose isn’t coming close to reaching expectations, but if you’re willing to sit and wait for production, snag him from someone who isn’t.

The 20 Best 3-Point Shooters In The NBA Right Now

Stephen Curry

While Dime has done stories on both the best shooters in the NBA and the players with the deepest range, we’ve never focused solely on the three-pointer. The adoption of the three-point line in 1979 dramatically changed the future of the NBA. Would Adam Morrison have even been considered a top 10 pick had this special skill not served a purpose?
