While all of America is gearing up for fantasy football, we here at Dime feel that it’s never too early for fantasy basketball draft preparation. And while most believe in building their fantasy teams around point guards and big men, that doesn’t mean shooting guards can be totally ignored. Unlike the point guards we went over earlier this week, there isn’t much depth at the two, so having a stud there could help put your squad amongst the elite. Read More »

The Top 5 NBA Revenge Games Of 2012-13 So Far

Ray Allen

We learned a few things while we all enjoyed ESPN and ABC’s quintuple header on Christmas with friends and family: the Lakers are back, the Clippers are legit, Houston seems to have found its legs, Oklahoma City still needs to figure out Miami, and LeBron James is unquestionably the league’s most dominant player right now. But we also saw Chicago and Brooklyn get whooped, and that former game featured one of Chicago’s former players, Omer Asik, dominating it on the boards and in the paint. Besides Asik’s big night in Chicago’s United Center, who else has gone off when they were going against their old team this season? Read More »

On one hand, you have Sunday being defined by a Seahawks team coming out of relative nowhere to crush the 49ers and become the NFL’s hottest team. In the NBA, its best team right now is on just the same kind of roll — 13 straight wins after Sunday — and even though you can say we’ve seen the Los Angeles Clippers coming for a couple of seasons now, it’s still remarkable that they’re the class of the West.

Kevin Durant Explodes In OKC; The Best Team You Don’t Know About Beats Miami

Having Kevin Durant on your team is probably good for about 10 extra wins a year strictly based on his talent and his competitive streak. You’re going to win games you shouldn’t only because he’ll get pissed off for some reason or another and start raining Hell on whoever’s guarding him. Read More »

5 Early Season NBA Statistical Anomalies That Won’t Last

J.R. Smith

The NBA season is just warming up, and like everything from Kobe‘s shooting percentages to Marcin Gortat leading the league in blocks, there are bound to be some statistical anomalies occuring out of sheer luck. Yes, sometimes, you can spot trends or improvements in a player’s game before they really happen (or at least get noticed on a larger scale). But five, six or seven games is a VERY small sample, and there are plenty of statistical numbers that are all out of whack through the season’s first two weeks. Read More »

James Harden Goes Berserk in Houston Debut; Lakers fall to 0-2

James Harden

As far as scintillating debuts go, James Harden‘s first game with the Rockets fell somewhere between Cam Newton in Carolina and The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. Everything the Rockets could have envisioned when they traded for Harden and inked him to an $80 million deal, he put on display Tuesday: Harden had six rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and a block, and he dropped 37 points in a win over Detroit, shattering the Rockets’ franchise record for most points in a debut … Read More »

Report: The Clippers Want Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom

The Dallas chapter of Lamar Odom‘s NBA career is mercifully coming to an end soon. The Mavs have a Friday deadline to buy out the remainder of his contract for $2.4 million, and will spend the next few days searching for a trade partner. They don’t want to take money in return, but they’re also not trying to throw cash to make The Goods go away. Luckily, one team has stepped up to the plate, a playoff team with a couple of strong veteran leaders, an opening on their frontcourt and of course, most importantly, a beach. That’s the Los Angeles Clippers. Read More »
