NBA Fantasy Basketball: Winners & Losers Of The Trade Deadline

J.J. Redick

The NBA trade deadline can make or break your fantasy team. Deadline deals not only change the value of existing fantasy studs, but also rearranges depth charts, opening the door for tons of players sitting on the waiver wire. I was a little disappointed by this year’s deadline, which was one of the slower ones in recent memory, but it still opened the door for many. Read More »

NBA Fantasy Team Analysis: The Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have sky-high potential when it comes to fantasy appeal. The question is whether they’ll have enough touches and shots to appease all the offensive weapons available. With so many mouths on this team to feed, fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check when it comes to the weekly production of any one of the Kings’ main rotation players. Read More »

Despite the NBA lockout, this summer has been awesome in terms of basketball. But one thing it’s been severely lacking is Jimmer Fredette. Thankfully that’s about to change. So after you pre-order his documentary, make sure you buy some tickets to “Jimmer’s All-Stars” to watch one of the country’s most prolific scorers get buckets. To be honest, I just might have to fly out. Read More »

And So It Begins: Dime’s NBA Draft Diary With Isaiah Thomas, Part 4

Isaiah Thomas

After leading Washington to back-to-back conference titles in the Pac-10 Tournament over the last two seasons, junior Isaiah Thomas (who also claimed back-to-back conference MOP honors in those same title runs) decided the time was right to test his talents on another level: the NBA. During his time in Seattle, the 5-9 guard was nothing short of an offensive force. After averaging 16.9 points and 3.9 assists a game as a sophomore, he returned this season to drop 16.8 and 6.1 per and navigate UW to a Sweet Sixteen appearance in the NCAA Tournament. And as the kid embarks on his journey away from college and into the pros, we wanted to give him his own space, and voice, to roam. So, follow along with Isaiah on his Dime NBA Draft Diary and the start to his journey as a member of the Sacramento Kings… Read More »

Revving Up For The Draft: Pairing Incoming NBA Players And Cars

I’ve watched a few episodes of Top Gear, here and there. I can’t say I know cars all too well, but I do appreciate a motor vehicle for its character, whether it be an SUV, sports car or minivan. And like NBA players’ style of play or skill sets, a car can say a lot about their owners.

Are they rugged, speedy, stylish? Are they reliable or will they leave you hanging in the most critical of moments? For example, I’d say Shaquille O’Neal‘s game fits with his semi-truck, pickup hybrid pretty well. So with the NBA Draft upcoming, which players’ games resemble what types automobiles? Read More »

The NBA Draft Combine was about a month ago, and a whirlwind of changes have since transpired. At the top we are seeing consistency, especially up to Sacramento at pick No. 7, but after that the show begins. With workouts happening daily, chatter at its highest possible magnitude and the rumors swirling left and right, it is time for a new addition of the Dime NBA Mock Draft. This time of year prospects are working their hardest, agents are earning their money and teams are doing their utmost diligence to find the future of their franchise. This is how we see it today: Read More »

Kevin Durant Better Be Ready For His Close-Up

Kevin Durant better be ready. After turning in a John Starks-like 3-for-14 stinker on Friday night, Game 7 could be KD’s to win or lose. We know who Memphis will go to, and while Russell Westbrook has played very well, Durant can be the difference if he’s ready … This afternoon, the conference semifinals will officially wrap up at 3:30 p.m. (ET) with the Game 7 between Memphis and the Thunder. While the trash-talking has already started, Chicago and Miami have to wait until tonight (8 p.m. (ET)) to tip off … Read More »

Earlier this week, I wrote that Butler’s Shelvin Mack could make an immediate impact in the right situation next year as an NBA rookie. While Mack’s current projection is slated somewhere between the late-first and mid-second round, there are still a ton of other possible hidden gems strewn throughout the class. With this on the brain, UCLA’s Tyler Honeycutt immediately came to mind. Read More »
