2007-08 Fantasy NBA MVP

LeBron vs. Kobe It’s just a matter of time before the usual suspects roll out their year-end awards and mock draft first round predictions for next season. Obviously there is still much to be decided this season; namely head-to-head leagues are in the middle of the semi-final week, the playoff pictures in both the East and the West need to be decided, and an NCAA champ needs to be crowned.

So I figure Dropping Dimes might as well be the place to stay ahead of the curve and look at the candidates for the real and fantasy MVP. If we are looking for four players to make up a “Mount Rushmore” for the 2007-08 season, three players end up being no-brainer picks. The fourth? Well, read on.

Playoff Primer 2008: Western Conference

Kobe Bryant damn I'm good
The shoot-out in the wild Western Conference has been great to follow, has it not? The top nine teams are separated by only 6.5 games. Every day the standings shift. Right now Phoenix sits in sixth while Dallas ranks seventh! This bodes well for fantasy owners as the best teams in the West should all be playing meaningful games down the stretch. Here’s a rundown of each team’s fantasy playoff schedule.

Beyond the Arc: Week 17

Description
Well, the week is over, so hopefully everyone won their matchups.  Short weeks can either be a good pick-me-up if you need some wins, or a very bad ordeal if you have a good team that lost to an inferior one due to games played.

Let me preface this All-Star edition by saying I truly hope The Big Easy pulls this off. It’s probably going to be a big factor in whether basketball stays in New Orleans. Sadly, with the attendance figures down there, it’s looking like a negative. But I think if they can pull off a great All-Star Weekend, that may change. One can only hope.

The Fig Cap: The hometown All-Star came up short in the three-point shootout, but didn’t the rest of the week.

Gerald Wallace - Fantasy BasketballIt isn’t often that we have ourselves a five-game week for any team.  It also isn’t often that you would rather own Andrew Bogut than Chris Bosh.  Yes, you read that right.  As always, the Dropping Dimes staff is here for the lowdown on the rest of the Association.

Here’s a breakdown of this week’s games:

Dropping Dimes on the Daily - 12.06.07

Description
One crazy game filled with big lines, a few huge rebounding totals, and some surprise dime machines headline today’s DDOTD.  How could we expect anything less than that on a nearly full slate of games on Wednesday?  That, folks, is why Thursday’s editions are always the best.

The Fig Cap: This obviously wasn’t Wednesday night.  Keep reading.

Not too many games to choose from last night, but plenty of fantasy production went down - mostly before a National audience on TNT.  Let’s stay strong and finish up the last weekday of the month…

Dropping Dimes on the Daily – November 25, 2007

Jamario Moon

Despite the Raptors/Pistons game starting in the middle of the day, the moon was shining brightly. Jamario Moon that is. In case you’re late to the Moon party, the undrafted 27-year-old rookie has started the Raptors last eight games at small forward and his athletic play is getting him noticed. Yesterday, the 6-8 forward erupted for the best line of his brief NBA career with 15 points, 9 boards, 3 steals and 6 blocks in the matinee victory. More info abou this Good Moon Rising after the jump.

The Fig Cap: His vertical leap is beyond all measurement. Don’t question it!
