Fantasy Hoops Roundtable: Least Fantasy Friendly Team
Time for another fantasy basketball roundtable.
Brian of EmptyTheBench.com was responsible for this week’s Fantasy Hoops Roundtable debate topic.
This Week’s Topic:
Which NBA team do you feel is least fantasy hoops friendly as a whole? Please explain why.
The team I feel is the least conducive to fantasy success is the Cleveland Cavaliers. I know they have LeBron James, but his rebounding ability steals from their bigs and his passing ability steals from their guards. After King James the pickings are slim.
Mo Williams is solid, but he’s probably in the bottom third of NBA #2 men. They have a trio of big men in Shaq, Big Z, and Varejao that somewhat cancel each other out. They don’t have a true point guard and their wing players are below average.
***Update: Mo Williams out a month (click to see the next course of action).
It gets even worse when you look at the other side of the ball. As of Friday, January 15th they are #3 in scoring defense allowing just 94.3 points per game. They allowed 100+ points in just 11 of their first 41 games (26.8 percent). They also lead the league with lowest field goal percentage allowed at .434. Plus, they are eighth in the league with three-point percentage allowed at .338.
