There are reports floating around that the New York Knicks are courting Phil Jackson to be their new coach. All one can do is imagine how that would change the dynamics of that team. They are built for fast break basketball and going with Jackson would most certainly turn the team into a triangle offense team. A lot of the current players on that team would lose fantasy value, as they just can not play that kind of game. I can certainly see Carmelo Anthony and a handful of role players adjusting. While it may keep Tyson Chandler healthier and allow the old vets to run less, that is as far as it goes. That team will need to be rebuilt. Maybe it is time for the Lakers to consider trading Kobe Bryant to that team to sink them further into the ground. Though Kobe is well-versed at the triangle, we know how much Kobe and Phil love each other’s company…

Anyone who was using Glen Davis in their lineup can stop, now that he is a cog off the Clipper bench ]. His PT should greatly decrease… Evan Turner should go down to about 25 mpg with the Pacers, filling he vacated sixth man role… Nick Young would be so statistically rich if he could only get healthy… Despite some circulating rumors of his return, Jrue Holiday is no closer to playing than he was a month ago… Just when Marv Williams peters out and you give up on him, he gets hot… Robin Lopez has a bright future in the NBA and fantasy leagues, as he has had a nice little season on a good team this year…
WAIVER WIRE WATCH: Take the time to grab these guys if still available, as they are flying off the wire… Patty Mills, Nate Wolers, Bryon Mullens, Marco Belinelli, PJ Tucker, Chris Kaman, Danny Granger, Tim Hardaway, Jr…

With the 2013 regular season in the rearview mirror, it’s never too early to peek through the curtain at 2014′s fantasy landscape. This is my (slightly) early look at who might go in the first round of your 2014 Fantasy Football draft.
Don’t you hate it when a breakout bargain like Jordon Crawford is traded to another team’s bench? It’s just bad for fantasy business… Well, I knew eventually the Lakers would no longer be the Lakers and somehow, you can probably trace it back to the politics of Kobe Bryant… Steve Nash‘s career is questionable, let alone his game-to-game status… Chances are, after the trade deadline either Arron Afflalo or Jameer Nelson will no longer be in Orlando. If you’re a content owner, keeep fingers crossed that the end up in positive fantasy situations… Apparently, when given the opportunity to start, Chris Kaman still has some stats in him…
Who would have thought Steve Blake could be a fantasy monster? Steve Nash looks good as well, but can’t do the back to back thing… JJ Redick is getting gimpy as time goes on… Kobe Bryant is a good buy-low prospect if you can get him. If he comes back healthy, he could do some damage in the fantasy playoffs… Dwayne Wade owners just cross their fingers from game to game, I guess… Whoever thought the current version of the Brooklyn Nets would be a good idea needs an anti-depressant by this point in time… Does anybody else miss the Fantasy Geek?
After two weeks of listening to Richard Sherman shouting about how good he is and Peyton Manning shouting “Omaha” (and pickin’ his nose), who’s ready to watch the damn game already. Two weeks between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl does build excitement, but it’s also filled with plenty of redundant storylines and boredom.
