Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 21

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 Carmelo Anthony (SF), Denver Nuggets One of […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 20

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 Gerald Wallace (SF, PF), Charlotte Bobcats Wallace’s […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 9

I hope the holidays were pleasant for everyone out there. During these hectic times, some people may get caught up in the yuletide spirit and forget to set their rosters each day. I myself was one of these people, and as a result, I lost both of my matchups last week. Oh well, live and […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 20 (3-9 – 3-15)

A Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you out there! Entering the final week of the fantasy regular season, I hope you were bitten by the luck of the Irish and are in position for the playoffs. To those who have already locked up a playoff spot, I hope you see the pot of […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 18 (2-23 – 3-1)

There are only three weeks left in the fantasy regular season. If you are mathematically out of the playoffs then please don’t stop trying. I find that when I am in that situation, it is fun to play “spoiler.” If I face a team on the cusp of making it to the playoffs or facing […]

Shawn Marion-Jermaine O’Neal Trade Impact

The Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat came to agreement on a pretty big trade Friday, and since both teams are in the Eastern Conference, I think that the trade can impact the Celtics. Let us investigate… Raptors Get: Shawn Marion, Marcus Banks, cash Heat Get: Jermaine O’Neal, Jamario Moon, future first round pick On the […]

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 […]

House, Allen Lead Celtics to Sixth Straight Win

OK, Ray Allen you could understand. But…Eddie House? The sharp shooting guard led the Celtics to an easy 98-83 win Wednesday night against the Heat. House used to play for Miami, so perhaps he saves his biggest games for his former team. House had a season-high point total of 20 in the second quarter alone, and finished with 25 […]

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. […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 5 (11-24 – 11-30)

I am in two basketball leagues. I saw a funny occurrence with my stats last week. In the SoB league, I have two more roster spots than in my other league. However, in the league with less room for players, I scored more total points than I did in the SoB league. Maybe I should […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 2 (11-3 – 11-9)

Two weeks in and where do you stand? Don’t sweat it, this is a marathon, not a sprint. What I haven’t seen much of this season is a breakout performer. It just seems the usual suspects are the ones who are the best, which is what is supposed to happen. We will see though, we […]

Celtics Four-Point Play (2/6)

Here’s the Celtics Four-Point Play to appear every Wednesday on Sports of Boston. This is where I will compile four (4) small and related Celtics facts and offer my own spin on a variety of Celtics news stories. The general format will be a short blurb about the story first, then my reaction tabbed underneath […]

The Marion-Shaq Trade Impact

It looks like Shaq is headed back to the Western Conference. (Courtesy of NBA.com) It’s looking like the Suns and Heat are about to make a very unlikely trade: Shaquille O’Neal will be going to the run-and-gun Suns while Shawn Marion and former awful Celtic Marcus Banks will be heading to the Heat. First, WHY! […]
