Downtown’s 2017 NBA Mock Draft 2.0

Downtown’s 2017 NBA Mock Draft 2.0

In the wake of the NBA Finals, it is evident that there is a clear distinction between the haves and the have-nots in the league. Those that have multiple stars will contend, while those that boast perhaps just one All-Star or none are playing catch-up.

Fantasy Basketball: Music of the Traffic – Week 22

Before yesterday, there were five players in NBA history to have a game of 70 points or more. Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, David Thompson, David Robinson and Kobe Bryant. Devin Booker just became the sixth! Booker, the second-year pro out of Kentucky, put up his own version of March Madness as he hit 21-of-40 field goals, 4-of-11 triples and 24-of-26… Read more →

Fantasy Basketball: Music of the Traffic – Week 21

Shut down for the season. Those are the words that no one wants to hear or read about one of their star players—especially this time of year. However, every season players on teams with no chance of making the postseason, or those with lingering injuries, get shelved, and as a fantasy manager there’s little you can do about it.

Something to Remember Me By: NBL 2016-17

In the afterglow of the NBL’s 39th season, three Downtown writers have assembled, each with something worth remembering about 2016-17. Liam Santamaria (NBL.com.au): The Adelaide 36ers were riveting When we look back, #NBL17 will be remembered for three things: Perth’s title defence, the insanely close ladder and the Adelaide 36ers.

If We Gave Out the NBA Awards Now

If We Gave Out the NBA Awards Now

By this point of the season, we’re starting to get a pretty good idea of who the major contenders are, who the busts are and which players have their teams primed for a playoff push. It’s the time of the year when everyone starts getting over that regular-season hump and begins looking ahead to the postseason. But one thing that’s… Read more →
