Sheridan Hoops MVP Rankings After Week 18

Leave a comment

Now what, Pop?

With Tony Parker out for a month, do you turn to the French rookie (Nando DeColo) … or the Aussie speedster (Patty Mills)?

And yes, we agree with your statement that Parker should be given major consideration for every award out there, and yes, we agree that there hasn’t been an NBA point guard who has done as much for his team as Parker has done for the Spurs.

Fantasy Spin: Joakim Noah Throws a Triple-Double Block Party; $300 Freeroll Tonight

The only logical reason not to join tonight’s Sheridan Hoops Freeroll would be a dislike of free money. It’s fun just to play, there is absolutely no cost and 15 people will win cash.

Bernucca: A very early look at free agency

2 Comments

When former AAU teammates Dwight Howard and Josh Smith were not traded Thursday, they made the offseason all the more interesting.

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak held onto Howard and Hawks GM Danny Ferry was unsuccessful in trying to trade Smith. And there is no guarantee that either player is sticking around this summer, possibly leaving $30 million on the table for a fresh start elsewhere.

Sheridan Hoops MVP Rankings After Week 17

1 Comment

The career triple-double count is now up to 35 (including seven with the Heat). The road record is now 16-11 to get out of the shabby zone. The lead in the Eastern Conference is up to 5 1/2 games. The winning streak is at 10 and counting.

Put it all together, and LeBron James is pulling away in the MVP race for a Miami Heat team that is finally playing with the pedigree, pride and determination befitting the defending NBA champions.

The race behind him?

We’re talking slippage, not grippage.

Fantasy Spin: Wizards Win Again; Hobbled LeBron Triple-Doubles

Leave a comment

Sure, LeBron James had a triple-double on one good leg, but the top fantasy basketball story is Chris Sheridan finishing 12th out of 18 in the $22 Challenge. Thinking the Pistons might show up to defend their home court, he used two potential bargains — Jason Maxiell and Viacheslav Kravtsov — who did very little. “PrincessDuckling” won the $180 first prize, “tommyboy42609” earned $112 for second and “mr92,” the only person who doubled his chances of winning by entering two teams, finished third and fourth for a total of $108. My team came seventh and won the $5 bonus for beating the expert.

We have folded the Week 18 Planner into the Spin today, and our Depth Chart has been updated to reflect the less-than-spectacular results of the trade deadline. Five pages of fantasy fun begins with what happened last night and what might happen today.
