      Getting ready to draft my fantasy basketball team. Anyone got any recommendations for good sites to peruse for player ranking, etc.?

      lil pipe made the team…it’s all starting to make sense now why we’ve been giving away picks like cotton candy. Now Stern won’t have anything to sanction us with. What, you’re going to take away our 2017-2019 first rounders?

      There are news reports today that Woodson is going to Platoon Martin and Stoudemire and have each one play every other game. This makes sense to me but begs a line up question. It seems like they will be backing up Chandler. Then if Chandler plays 30 minutes or so that leaves 18 minutes for one of them on any given night, which is about right. But then, assuming Melo and Bargnani are the starting forwards, who is their backup? World Peace can play forward but assuming he plays only 20 minutes or so that leaves a guaranteed 15 minutes of small ball. Any thoughts?

      Considering Woody’s love of smallball it might work…like using the wildcat occasionally instead of all the time.
