Fantasy Basketball 2012

Fantasy basketball is here again.

Every year I run a 12-team, standard 9-category, Head-to-Head league on Yahoo.com. The league is comprised of friends, family, and fellow competitors I’ve met through the years. There’s an entry fee and prizes for the winners;It’s always a good time.

(If you’re interested in joining an entertaining fantasy basketball or football league, shoot me an email.)

Our draft was on October 23.

Here’s my roster:

1. (3) Kevin Durant (OKC – SF)

2. (22) Goran Dragic (Pho – PG)

3. (27) Andre Iguodala (Den – SG,SF)

4. (46) Roy Hibbert (Ind – C)

5. (51) Damian Lillard (Por – PG)

6. (70) Klay Thompson (GS – SG,SF)

7. (75) Darren Collison (Dal – PG)

8. (94) Jonas Valanciunas (Tor – C)

9. (99) Andrei Kirilenko (Min – SF,PF)

10. (118) Luke Ridnour (Min – PG,SG)

11. (123) Robin Lopez (NO – C)

12. (142) Chandler Parsons (Hou – SF,PF)

13. (147) Jarrett Jack (GS – PG,SG)

14. (166) Nikola Vucevic (Orl – PF,C)

I landed Kevin Durant at #3 when the manager at #2 drafted Kobe Bryant. Said manager was late to the draft. The Auto-draft feature gave him a “pre-rank special”.

Goran Dragic and Damon Lillard are poised to have a big year. I’m high on Robin Lopez as a high 20-minute guy in New Orleans. He’s got the size and touch around the basket to be a solid contributor. I picked up Jarrett Jack (signed with Golden State) because he’s backing up Stephen Curry. That should tell you what I think of  Curry’s chances of playing an injury-free season.

I’ll throw a few updates on my progress and other league happenings throughout the season.
