17/18 September Rankings: 101-125

101) Dennis Smith Jr. (PG) – Smith was dynamite in summer league and should be a serious contender for the rookie of the year award. He doesn’t have the long-term upside that Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball do, but he could be better as a rookie. He’s going to have a fairly large role for Mavericks. …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 6: Punt Threes

Punting threes is a very viable strategy and it works well with many of the first-round picks. The only issue I have with this build is that it’s unlikely to be my first choice for any of the first-round targets. If I’m fortunate enough to draft Karl-Anthony Towns in the first round, I’m going to …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 5: Punt Points and Punt Points/FT%

If you’re interested in punting points, and you should be, as soon as you’re done reading this guide, start mocking. This one is going to take some practice. The punt points build is, without question, the most difficult strategy to successfully pull off. Fortunately, it also has the highest ceiling of any punting strategy. No …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 4: Punt Blocks

Blocks are very difficult to find as they tend to be concentrated among just a handful of players. In 2015-2016, only five players managed to block at least two shots a night and only two of those players shot better than 65% from the line. The theory behind punting blocks is similar to the theory …

2016-2017 Busts/Overvalued Players

Avoiding players who bust, especially early in the draft, can be just as important as finding that late-round sleeper who vastly outperforms their draft position. Luckily, most non-injury related busts are somewhat easy to spot. The same group of players are overrated year after year and this year is no different. How many times does …

September Rankings: 76-100

76) Dwight Howard (PF/C) – Howard is replacing Al Horford and remains a mid-round option for those punting FT%. The move to Atlanta should be accompanied by usage boost and that should lead to an increase in his shot attempts and scoring (13.7 PPG). Despite having his worst season since his rookie year, Howard was …

Free-Agent Roundup – Central Division

Cleveland Cavaliers Notable Additions: Mike Dunleavy, Chris Andersen, Kay Felder The defending champions didn’t have much cap space to work with and will go into the 2016-2017 season with a very similar roster to the one that upset the Warriors. J.R. Smith remains unsigned, but there have been no indications that the sharpshooter will not …

Busts/Overvalued Players

This list was originally almost twice as long but Yahoo updated their rankings overnight and moved most of the obvious breakout candidates up and most of the obvious bust candidates down. Yahoo’s rankings are much better than they were 24 hours ago but there’s still quite a few glaring issues. You’ll notice that this list …

Free-Agent Roundup – Pacific Division

Golden State Warriors When you have a historic regular season and follow it up with a dominant playoff run, you don’t mix things up. The defending champions’ only notable move was their trade of David Lee to Boston for the corpse of Gerald Wallace. Wallace’s game was always very dependent on athleticism and now that his …
