Eight NBA Fantasy Basketball Flops This Season

The NBA Playoffs are on right now, though for fantasy basketball players, yet another season has come to an end. Depending on where you finished, you're either celebrating a championship or podium finish, or telling your friends to "wait till next year" and hoping for a better 2014-15. If last week we touched on the 2013-14 season's biggest fantasy steals, here are the eight biggest disappointments, once again in no particular order. Take note that this list does not include players who missed most of the season due to injuries – that's 41 games or more.

How to Fix the NBA Playoffs

Many NBA fans over the years have complained about the playoff format as it is, and have wanted to see some change. During a recent Spurs game, new NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he'd be willing to take a look at a fresh, new playoff system that made sense.

Why the Los Angeles Lakers Should Fire Mike D'Antoni

When a team is winning, the coach usually doesn't get much credit, if at all. But when a team is losing, fans call for the coach's head. That's normally not the right way to go about things when a once-mighty team finds itself in the unfamiliar position of losing. But with the Los Angeles Lakers, it stands to reason that the best way they can kick off the rebuilding process is by getting rid of the coach.

No Bull, Chicago Could Go Far in the Eastern Conference

No Bull, Chicago Could Go Far in the Eastern Conference

You look at the Chicago Bulls' numbers and they are anything but sexy. As of this writing, the Bulls are dead-last in the NBA in scoring, averaging just 93.0 ppg and bringing to mind memories of Mike Fratello's slow-breaking Cleveland Cavaliers from the mid-'90. However, the team is delivering where it counts the most – on the defensive end – and are holding opponents down to just 92 ppg and 43 percent shooting from the field, both second-best in the league. With that in mind, can the Bulls go far in the Playoffs with a lineup that, once again, features franchise point guard Derrick Rose on the sidelines?

Tale of a Top Prospect: Andrew Wiggins

If you look at most NBA mock draft boards, you'll see on almost every single one of them that Andrew Wiggins is expected to be a top 3 draft choice if he's not taken number one overall. After Kansas lost to Stanford on Sunday, Wiggins faced a lot of criticism based on his performance, and how he seemingly disappeared and was shut down. Wiggins only attempted 6 field goals, making just 1, and went 2 of 2 from the free throw line. He finished with just 4 points.

The Philadelphia 76ers Are the Worst Team in NBA History

The Philadelphia 76ers Are the Worst Team in NBA History

It's an open secret of sorts, but the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers are raising the bar when it comes to alleged tanking. With 24 straight losses, the Sixers are on their way to breaking league records for futility. Yet they're in no danger of breaking the records of the Charlotte Bobcats (7-66 in 2011-12) and the team that had the all-time worst NBA record for close to four decades, the 1972-73 Sixers, who went 9-73 that season. Which leads us to the question – despite being better in terms of overall record, are the 2013-14 Sixers worse than the 1972-73 lineup?

A Basketball Milestone: Why the Signing of Jason Collins Represents a Turning Point

After coming out as the first ever openly gay active NBA player in history last spring, Jason Collins had to wait nearly a year before an NBA team would give him a chance. That team was the Brooklyn Nets, who signed Collins near the end of February.

The Dark Horses of the NBA Playoffs

It is just the beginning of March, but the NBA's second season is just around the corner. In less than six weeks, the NBA's top eight teams from each conference will begin squaring off in the playoffs, and as any fan of basketball knows - this is when it gets exciting. There are four or five teams that everyone has locked to go deep into the playoffs. No one will be surprised to see the Thunder, Spurs, Heat, Pacers, or to a lesser extent, the Clippers, in their respective conference finals.

The Odds of the Portland Trail Blazers Surprising Season

It's been a rough couple of years for fans of the Portland Trail Blazers, with the promise of a future championship team coming after the 2006 and 2007 drafts, it was common knowledge that they'd be a contender by now. Well, they are, but not with the core stars that they thought they would have. Instead of Roy, Oden, and Aldridge, it's Aldridge, Lillard, and Batum. They are an exciting team to watch, especially for betting on the nba odds over the rest of the season.

NBA Season Recaps: 1977-1978 NBA Season

NBA Season Recaps: 1977-1978 NBA Season

Remember the 1968-69 Celtics and 1974-75 Warriors, both of whom won the NBA Finals despite middling 48-34 records? The Washington Bullets of 1977-78 had an even more so-so regular season record at 44-38, and they ended up winning the 1978 Finals, defeating the 47-35 Seattle SuperSonics. It was indeed a case of giant-killing at work, as the Sonics would go through the lower-seeded L.A. Lakers, then the odds-on favorite Portland Trail Blazers, then another strong team, the Denver Nuggets, before reaching the Finals.
