NBA Fantasy 3 Stars (02/05/09)
1. Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers: I don’t care what anyone else did this week, the 61 points was unbelievable and really made fantasy owners happy (or sad in my case, as the team I’m facing has Kobe). With Bynum out, his numbers are only going to get better. Most people won’t trade him, but if you can make an unbelievable offer for him, do it now.
2. LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers: Triple-double last night, 52 points last night; this guy is amazing. The things he does with a basketball are unbelievable. The Cavs are rolling this season (especially at home), and after seeing LeBron first-hand last night, the team fully runs through him.
3. Yao Ming, Houston Rockets: Yao is having a career year, averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds. 73 points in his last 3 games along with 28 rebounds are some good numbers. He had a great week, and fantasy owners should be shopping him while they can before his value goes down.
