Recently I took part in one of my favourite events of the whole year.  Fantasy Basketball Draft!  This will be my third year in a league with some friends.  This year we have 14 people, and it seems like a tradition now that I have a terrible position in the draft, the 12th pick overall.  With my hopes of finally getting a Kobe, KG or LeBron, that obviously quickly went down the drain.  Even worse off, I felt I just had to take Tim Duncan with my first pick.  I hate Tim Duncan (watching him play=boring.  It’s like watching an elementary coach teach his team the fundamentals of how to hit a jump shot off the backboard).  Beyond that though, I was really happy with my 2nd to 6th picks.  Below is my team in order of which round I drafted them in.    I think Mikki Moore will have a 10 and 10 year, and Grant Hill promises to be extremely solid if he can stay healthy.  What about Yiiiiiiiiiii?  Someone please tell me this guy’s going to be a star this year!  As for J. Maxiell, I know I could have probably grabbed him off of waivers early, but hey, I love this guy and hopefully he gets a lot of minutes off the bench with McDyess starting at an older age.  Either way, I think I’m in great shape for another exciting season of Fantasy Basketball
