Fantasy Basketball, Day One: The Dreaded Random Draft

This is my first time playing fantasy basketball on ESPN (or anywhere). Obviously, that meant I had to let the computer pick my players. Oh god…

Say hello to your 2014-2015 D League Caddyshaqs!

PG Isaiah Thomas

SG Kevin Martin

SF Thaddeus Young

PF Anthony Davis

C Marc Gasol

G Michael Carter-Williams

F Serge Ibaka

UTIL Greg Monroe

UTIL Tyreke Evans

UTIL Trey Burke

Bench Randy Foye

Bench Andrew Bogut

Bench Danilo Gallinari

Some quick reactions…

  • I have no idea how to play fantasy hoops. So that should be interesting.
  • Having Isaiah Thomas is great… except Phoenix also has Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. Ugh. Make some moves, Phoenix!
  • Kevin Martin apparently averaged 19 PPG last year.
  • Anthony Davis better make a huge leap this year. I’m crossing my fingers. And my eyebrows.
  • Since the 76ers are inevitably going to blow, I guess it’s okay I got Michael Carter-Williams. For fantasy purposes, great. But it sucks that his development is probably going to be negatively altered by playing on such a crappy team.
  • Please get Tyreke Evans away from me.
