You know we’re always willing to talk all levels of basketball here at Hickory-High, so why not spend some time gearing up for the Fantasy Basketball season? I was invited to participate in an “experts” fantasy football/basketball podcast with the Fantasy Nomad, Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad) at RotoInfo last night. Michael hosts a great weekly show that details match-ups to exploit and players to watch. We discussed players to keep an eye on, teams that will fall, health issues, and everything else you could ask for from a statistical aspect starting at the 60 minute mark.
RotoInfo is dedicated the fantasy side of basketball. Keep up with their basketball features and Michael’s podcast and give yourself an edge this season.
Personal Note: Michael and I both took part in an expert fantasy NBA draft this season through the Fantasy Sports Writers Association (FSWA) and below are our results. Which team do you think will do better?
Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon, Luol Deng, Serge Ibaka, Dwight Howard, Tony Parker, Gordon Hayward, Kyle Lowry, Ray Allen, Jason Terry, George Hill, Amare Stoudemire, Lou Williams
Steve Nash, Marcus Thorton, Carmelo Anthony, Ersan Ilyasova, Al Horford, Brandon Roy, Nicolas Batum, Greg Monroe, DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler, Landry Fields, Derrick Favors

It’s been an interesting week on the New York blogosphere, with hometown hero Jim Cavan pondering whether the Knicks should trade Carmelo Anthony over at Bleacher Report and friends Jared Dubin and netw3rk exchanging e-mails about whether or not to blow up the team (unclear on whether they mean that literally) at Grantland. Both pieces are well-written and e […]
I have seen the calls for my apologies. The demands that I come out and eat crow for predicting the Nuggets were clearly lottery team. The wonder at where I have been during the recent streak of great play. (For the record I was away for ten days for the holiday). But I have been […]
The Minnesota Timberwolves entered Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks hoping to put the stop to a recent six-game-road-skid, which they did; 112-106. Vince Carter, unlike the team’s matchup earlier this month in Minnesota, was in-uniform for the Mavs, however, he would need to compensate for an inactive Jose Calderon — who was sidelined with […]
