Fantasy Spin: Curry, James Worth Superstar Salaries In Daily Play

Steph & Blake

Even with only three NBA games on the Thursday schedule, DFS contests at DraftKings are challenging and fun. They can be profitable, too. The nightcap should be exciting, as Stephen Curry $10800 leads the unbeaten Warriors into L.A., though Chris Paul (groin) and J.J. Redick (back) are “not probable,” according to Doc Rivers.

Scotto: Sheridan Hoops Top 10 Point Guards

Stephen Curry

Point guard is the most important and deepest position in the NBA. How deep? Take a look at some of the players not featured in our top 10 rankings at the position. You won’t find Derrick Rose, the league’s youngest MVP four years ago. Over the past three seasons, Rose has missed 185 of a possible 246 games. Asking Rose to return to his MVP form is out of the question. Asking Rose to return to his All-Star form appears bleak, too. How about


Five Things To Watch: Miami Heat

At Presidents’ Weekend last season, the Miami Heat were in the running to make the playoffs in their first season following LeBron James’ departure. Chris Bosh told SheridanHoops after the All-Star Game that he was excited for Miami’s playoff push. Then came the shocking news that Bosh would miss the rest of the season with blood clots on his lungs. Without him, the Heat missed the postseason for the first time since 2008, the year before Erik Spoelstra took over as


NBA players react to a glorious first day of free agency on twitter


The golden age for NBA players wasn’t supposed to arrive before 2016 when the new TV deal would kick in, but it has clearly arrived early enough for the free agents of 2015. It started just as the free agency period kicked in with the calendar turning July when Anthony Davis agreed to the largest single contract ever for an NBA player. While other big-name players like LaMarcus Aldridge, Monta Ellis and Marc Gasol are still trying to figure out what they want


SH Blog: Is George Karl known as a snake in the grass?; Goran Dragic officially enters free agency

DeMarcus Cousins

Is veteran coach George Karl secretly a snake in the grass? That’s what DeMarcus Cousins and a few other stars from Karl-led teams seem to believe. Via Basketball Forever, here’s the infamous tweet of emojis from Cousins last night mashed with several others in past years from previous Karl players such as Carmelo Anthony and Andre Igoudala. There seems to be a common theme. According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Karl has recently tried to convince Kings’ management to trade Cousins, an idea that owner Vivek Ranadivé


DuBose: After Harden’s Triumphant Return to OKC, Rockets Grateful for Trades That Weren’t


Each time the Rockets play the Thunder, four names immediately come to mind: Jeremy Lamb, Kevin Martin, Steven Adams and Mitch McGary. With all draft picks now liquidated, those players make up the return Oklahoma City received for James Harden in October 2012. Martin left the Thunder in free agency after one season off the bench, and the others all score fewer than eight points per game. That’s it. Lamb, who was supposedly the trade’s crown jewel as the No. 12 pick in 2012, isn’t


Bernucca: Westbrook is Awesome, But Not Hardenesque in MVP Race

Westbrook Curry resize 1

Let’s get something out of the way here. Russell Westbrook is awesome. Westbrook is one of the game’s top five players, and I’ve felt that way for a couple of years. He may not be a better conventional point guard than Chris Paul or Tony Parker or Stephen Curry. But if any of those guys even dream about being a better player than Westbrook, they better wake up and get back to reality. I also love watching Westbrook play. I cannot recall
