Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 10

With the end of football’s fantasy season being so hectic, I have been neglecting my basketball teams lately. As a result, I dropped to 10th in one of my leagues, thanks in large part to leaving Kevin Durant on my bench all week. Yes, I know I have to get my s**t together, so don’t […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 8

In the past week, nobody has picked up a player in the Sports of Boston Fantasy Basketball League. Either everyone is very satisfied with their team or nobody is paying attention. That kind of crime would be worse than Lamar Odom’s fantasy value (oh, petty cheap shot by me). Injuries Chauncey Billups (PG), Denver Nuggets […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 3

I’ve been slightly disappointed with my teams over the past two weeks because I am just barely squeaking out 5-4 wins. I’d like to be winning by 6-3 or more, but in the end, winning is winning. After all, when playoff time rolls around, a 5-4 win is just as good as a 9-0 win. […]

Rondo-Paul Incident Sets Stage for Budding Rivalry

The NBA has decided not to discipline Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul following multiple incidents which occurred between the two players during the Celtics’ 97-87 win over the New Orleans Hornets last Sunday evening.  Both point guards were hit with technical fouls following a verbal spat which took place in the second quarter of the […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 2

I hate basketball streamers. They are worse than people who stream pitchers in a baseball league. In one of my other leagues, there is a guy who has been streaming for four or more seasons, and it has resulted in four straight finals appearances and a championship. I personally don’t advocate streaming, I think a […]

Celtics Survive Second Half Swarm by Hornets

In what was becoming a terrible Sunday for Boston sports fans (the Bruins 1-0 loss to the Rangers, Yankees now up 3-1 in the World Series), the Celtics managed to salvage a game against the Hornets as well as the weekend. Boston’s performance was nothing  flashy but adjustments down the stretch allowed the Celtics pulled out a 97-87 win […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Championship Week

One valuable lesson was learned for the Championship Week matchup in the Sports of Boston Friends and Family League. I was facing Shotgun from The BlueWorkhorse for all the marbles in the first annual league championship. Our teams were strong (obviously), but I was rotating three roster spots due to injuries by streaming players through free […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 23 (3-30 – 4-5)

The finals have arrived. In each of my leagues, this week starts the two-week showdown between the two best teams. Two men enter, one man leaves. The months of agony and patience all come down to this one matchup. Just don’t blow it. Oh, and good luck and all that crap. Injury Roundup Allen Iverson […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 21 (3-16 – 3-22)

In Yahoo! leagues, the playoffs begin in Week 21. The past 20 weeks have been a grueling testament to how dedicated you truly are and how much you stack up to the best of the best in your league. I was fortunate enough to make it to the show in one league and in my […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 19 (3-2 – 3-8)

There are only two weeks remaining in the fantasy regular season. With all the hype surrounding fantasy baseball in recent weeks, it is easy to forget that the fantasy basketball playoffs are quickly approaching. Don’t let baseball draft day preparation distract you from winning a league title in basketball. Otherwise, over 20 weeks of hard work […]

Celtics Beat Hornets, Lose Ray Allen

Lately, the knock against the Celtics was that they couldn’t beat the best from the West. Last year, they dominated the Western Conference in the regular season, but this year seemed different. They were swept by the Lakers this year, losing last week by one point in overtime. They also took a tough loss to […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 12 (1-12 – 1-18)

That’s it: we need to get the trading season started in the SoB Friends and Family League. My colleague Pete alleged that everyone is satisfied with their team, which is why there hasn’t been any activity. If you’re a team in the top 6 of your league, you should be satisfied, and it would be […]

Fantasy Basketball Report: Week 7 (12-8 – 12-14)

Just a quick observation. When preparing for the season, I noticed that there were no fantasy basketball magazines out there. If there were, then I didn’t notice. Before the baseball and football season, the amount of literature on these sports is just baffling. Yet, my pursuit of some good fantasy basketball reading left me flat. […]

Posey Awarded with Ring, Celtics Awarded with Win

The Celtics made a nice gesture Friday night in giving James Posey his own special championship ring ceremony for helping the Celtics win Banner No. 17. Instead of helping the C’s pursue their 18th World Championship, Posey bolted for more guaranteed years and more money to play for the New Orleans Hornets. Last year, the […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 4 (11-17 – 11-23)

In one of my leagues, I forgot to play one player on Sunday. Thinking it to be no big deal, I checked the box scores at the end of the day and then checked Yahoo!’s Stat Tracker and discovered that if I had played this one man, I would have tied two categories and won […]
