Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the NBA and fantasy world.
In last Monday’s episode, we discussed some updates to the NBA and fantasy basketball as a whole.
The league is still hopeful for a mid or late-summer return. Unfortunately, four Nets players tested positive for the coronavirus, including Kevin Durant. (04:44)
Commissioner Adam Silver spoke with ESPN about some of his ideas, including a possible charity game to start the season. He also spoke of altering the schedules of the rest of the season as well as the playoff schedule. This also includes potentially starting next year’s season this December. (06:10)
Our experts are joined in this episode by RotoWire’s Nick Whalen, and together they hand out some fantasy basketball awards! (11:30)
These include Fantasy MVP: your nominees are James Harden, LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, or Anthony Davis. (17:07) And we’ll discuss Fantasy Sleeper of the Year: your choices are Spencer Dinwiddie, Brandon Ingram, Domantas Sabonis, Hassan Whiteside, or Andrew Wiggins. (28:15)
