Fantasy Basketball: All-Star Edition


The Eastern and Western Conference All-Star game reserves were recently announced and now the rosters of both teams are complete. As you know, the starters were selected based on fan voting while the reserves were selected by each team’s respective coaches and their coaching staff.

The overall selection is not 100% just a popularity contest. How these players performed for the first half of the season factored into their selection as well.

When it comes to fantasy basketball, however, the big names and bright lights don’t matter as much. It’s all about the numbers these players produce and how well they defeat our opposing managers of imaginary teams.

So in getting into the spirit of the upcoming All-Star weekend and All-Star game here is a look at who would make into East and West teams based on their cumulative stats from October 29, 2013 until January 31, 2014..
