SoB NBA Power Rankings 2-27-10

The All-Star break is officially over and the push for the NBA Playoffs has begun. This week’s SoB NBA Power Rankings feature the same ten teams as our 2/12 rankings, but things have shaken up a little bit. The top four teams (LA, Cleveland, Orlando, Denver) remain the same. The LA Lakers reclaimed the No. […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 2-12-10

The top-ranked Cleveland Cavaliers and the LA Lakers maintained their stranglehold on the top two spots in the fifth installment of Sports of Boston’s NBA Power Rankings. Once again, the Cavs were unanimously voted the top team in the league by our NBA experts, with the Lakers sitting just three points back. The Orlando Magic, […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 14

Every Monday, I will report on the events of the past week of fantasy basketball. I will go over each position and what particular player that week stood out from all the rest. As always, I will start off with this week’s notable injuries to report on. Injuries Chris Paul (PG), New Orleans Hornets One […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 13

Every Monday, I will report on the events of the past week of fantasy basketball. I will go over each position and what particular player that week stood out from all the rest. As always, I will start off with this week’s notable injuries to report on. Injuries Brandon Roy (PG, SF, SF), Portland Trail […]

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 6

Oh no! I am facing a notorious streamer this week in one of my leagues. Since he started this strategy, he is has won two league championships in a row. Personally, I don’t like facing streamers (obviously), but hey, as long as the league is set up to let you get away with it, then […]

Garnett Leads Well-Balanced Celtics Past Thunder

I think it’s finally safe to say that Kevin Garnett is officially back. I mean, he’s been playing for the whole season of course, but we may be seeing what we saw from KG pre-knee-injury, which is a scary development for the rest of the Eastern Conference and NBA. Garnett led the team with 23 […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 5

Man, I had some bad matchups in some of my leagues last week. They were almost as bad as Tiger Woods’ driving…BA-ZING!!!! No, seriously though, they weren’t too bad, I just needed an excuse to make a Tiger woods joke. I hope you enjoyed it. Hey, he wasn’t injured, therefore it is OK to make […]

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 […]

The Glen Davis Scenarios

What is going on with Glen “Big Baby” Davis and the Celtics? We’ve been hearing all along that Danny Ainge would let the market decide Davis’ value, and that the C’s were going to wait to match whatever offer sheet the forward signed. The Boston Herald is reporting two contradictory stories related to Davis. One […]

Celtics Pull Away In Win Over Thunder

Through the first three quarters of the game, the Celtics and Thunder were neck and neck. In the fourth quarter, however, the C’s took over and outscored Oklahoma City 32-16 to win 103-84. Glen Davis and Paul Pierce were Boston’s big stars as Kevin Garnett sat out again to rest his weak knee. Pierce led all scorers […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 17 (2-16 – 2-22)

With just one month left in the regular fantasy season, you should start making a push for a playoff spot. If you are like me in one of my other leagues, you have no shot at making the playoffs. However, I will still be trying to the very end. I can’t stand it when someone […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 13 (1-19 – 1-25)

In my other league, I have been free-falling in a very fast way. Just over a month ago, I was sitting in first place without a care in the world. Now I sit in 11th place and at this point I think I may just have to give up hope of making the playoffs. I […]

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. […]
