Welcome back! In this week's episode, Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don break down the latest happenings in the NBA and fantasy world.
Andy took part in his first League of Leagues draft this past weekend. It’s a three-sport fantasy league that combines the NBA, NFL, and MLB. The draft lasted 51 ROUNDS — which equates to a bit over 10 hours! Fantasy — an endurance sport. (05:25)
The first 12 NBA picks in League of Leagues were: James Harden (taken by our own Andy Behrens), Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, LeBron James, Karl-Anthony Towns, Nikola Jokic, Bradley Beal, Damian Lillard, Kevin Durant, Jayson Tatum, Stephen Curry, and Paul George. (10:45)
Andy and Dalton discuss whether Kevin Durant will return to MVP form. (14:45)
Dalton explains why he took Kawhi Leonard with his second pick, currently the number 4 fantasy NBA player per-game. (16:55)
Where should Kyrie Irving be drafted next year? (24:32)
And are we sleeping on Lonzo Ball? (30:12)
And some ICYMI for this week: Mark Cuban says his hope is for the season to return before June. And if you need more basketball content in your lives, check out Yahoo’s Posted Up Podcast. Chris Haynes recently chatted with Quinn Cook and Collin Sexton about how they’re handling isolation.
