It's NOT about Owning the Best Players

by Jackk on Oct 13, 2014

The 2014-2015 NBA season starts in a bit over a month, and fantasy players everywhere are flocking to mock drafts to practice for their real drafts. As one of the mock drafters I was drafting with said,

Everyone thinks after the draft that they drafted the best team

by Jackk on Sep 14, 2014

Some call it Do Not Draft lists. Others call it Buyers Beware. I prefer to call it Let Him be Someone Else's Problem

1. Kevin Durant
