Okay, so maybe there’s a little sarcasm there, but c’mon! It was an amazing preseason moment. Andy Behrens and Dalton Del Don discuss that moment and much more in the latest Yahoo Fantasy Basketball Podcast. (2:12)

In this week’s Starting Five segment of the episode, Andy and Dalton run down the five biggest storylines of the fantasy week, which include:

1) YES, AGAIN — BEN SIMMONS HIT A 3!

2) Zion was as advertised vs. Hawks. Which other rookies impressed? (3:22)

3) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a monster game on Tuesday night.(5:41)

4) Kristaps Porzingis makes his preseason debut Wednesday. If drafting right this second, where do you take him? (ADP is currently 32.4). (7:35)

5) Early thoughts on Markelle Fultz, after his 8-7-4 line on Monday. (9:33)

It might be preseason in the NBA, but fantasy basketball draft season is in full effect. Our experts discuss their experiences at the recent Yahoo Friends & Family basketball draft, as well as Dalton’s draft with Rotoworld last week.

Next up, Ryan Knaus of Rotoworld calls in to break down his not one but TWO first-overall draft picks, where he is taking Zion Williamson (26:35) and is it time to crank up the De'Aaron Fox Hype Train? (28:00).

Andy & Dalton wrap up the show with In Case You Missed It. ICYMI this week: Twin brothers Brook and Robin Lopez finally shared the floor together!
