    Description

    There are a handful of decent draft guides out there.

    We’re a bit biased here, but ours is the best.

    And when you’re playing for pride or money, you don’t want second best. Or third best. Or the generic one that everybody reads at a TV big box site.

    You want the guide that wins national championships. You want the managing editor of the guide to be a FSWA Fantasy Basketball Writer of the Year. You want the Bruski 150 because year after year it puts other rankings to shame and consistently produces winners.

    Mostly, you want the people giving you fantasy advice to actually put their money where their mouth is (and win) year after year.

    I organized and produced draft guide coverage years at Rotoworld and what I can tell you is that it’s only as good as the backbone of the research. The backbone here is the Bruski 150, a ranking and projections methodology which is supplemented by industry leading analysts Dan Besbris and 30-DEEP winner Mike Passador, Erik Ong, Nathan Nguyen, Chef Ali, Souriyo Dishak, Adrian Benjamins, Neil Rochlani, Josh Millman and more.

    Unlike other rankings that just get thrown together, the B150 is made using proprietary algorithms, MONTHS of ALL DAY research, YEARS of experience and custom-built projections for nearly every player in the NBA.

    It is from this central point of analysis that the coverage gets built out and because the foundation is strong, the rest of the draft guide can get really aggressive.

    Year after year it destroys the competition. Last year kept the undefeated streak alive with another 60-40 win over the best fantasy site not named Hoop Ball.

    The best part is that right now we’re a small website. While most of your competition will be reading from the generic big box lists, you’re getting pro grade advice that nobody else in your league will have. At least for now.

    Thanks for the support everybody.

    INCLUDED WITH THE GUIDE

    – FREE –

    Hoop Ball RotoBalance App for Android

    We performed statistical analysis on thousands (28k+) of fantasy basketball leagues from the 2016-2018 seasons.

    The goal was to find out if there is a correlation between the size of the leagues and the amount of each stat you need to win the category.

    The answer is yes! We found exactly how much of each stat you need to compete in your league, and it depends on the league’s size.

    We do that research as a foundation of Hoop Ball’s Draft Guide and the projections used for the Bruski 150.

    Now, we’re bringing that research to you in an app that will help you draft a strong, but balanced squad so you don’t waste picks on players that might be inefficient for your particular squad or team build.

    The app is free for Hoop Ball Draft Guide subscribers and we are going to continue building this out so you guys can keep dominating your leagues!

  • Romello White
    PF, College

    Romello White declared for the 2020 NBA Draft on Wednesday.

    White is "keeping his options available" despite declaring for the draft. It is probably a good idea considering he isn't a lock to be drafted. The junior power forward averaged 10.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks for Arizona State this past season. He isn't likely to be on the fantasy radar even if he does earn a roster spot in the NBA.

    The four players from the Nets who tested positive for COVID-19 are symptom free after passing a 14-day protocol but are still self-isolating, according to Greg Logan of Newsday.

    Logan went on to say that the entire traveling party for the Nets are healthy at the moment. This is a good sign to see players and staff recovering from the virus without any new cases reported.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart plans to donate his blood plasma to the National COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Project for research on how the virus affects the blood of those infected or have been infected already, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    This marks an interesting end (fingers-crossed) to Smart's coronavirus infection and subsequent quarantine. Only five NBA players have received confirmed positive tests for COVID-19 but the NBA obviously isn't taking any chances during this global pandemic. With speed being medical professionals' biggest pressure with regards to a vaccine, Smart really stepped up to the plate. Hopefully other public figures who have recovered from the virus will follow his lead in donating necessary items for research. This also doesn't hurt Smart's public image, which has been known to fluctuate dramatically during his college and professional career.

    The Chinese government has stopped the CBA (Chinese Basketball Association) from resuming their season, nearly two months after halting their season due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

    The CBA does not currently have a players' union, so these types of sweeping decisions can happen more quickly than in the United States, where the players are unionized. While this is not great news for basketball players and fans in China, it also has global ramifications for sports across the world looking for a timeline. Everyone is wondering when it will be safe to resume or begin athletic events. Executives are trying to handle the logistics of said decisions, which is much more of a slippery slope. It seems increasingly obvious that the NBA is nowhere near a return to action and currently the situation is still completely out of commissioner Adam Silver's hands.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    The entire Lakers roster has been deemed symptom-free of the coronavirus after completing a 14-day home isolation that was prescribed by team doctors, according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell.

    Finally, some good news for the NBA. The Lakers were isolated two weeks ago and they all maintained quarantine in their homes. The league has yet to announce plans as far as next steps for potentially resuming the 2019-20 season, but this is a good start. More teams should complete quarantine periods in the coming weeks. It doesn't help that professional basketball's return in China was halted abruptly after they had planned on making a return earlier this week. This is obviously a very fluid situation and NBA commissioner Adam Silver must bide his time before making concrete decisions. Stay tuned.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    According to Sarah K. Spencer of the Atlantic Journal Constitution, Clint Capela had been progressing towards participating in half-court workouts prior to the season being suspended.

    There was some uncertainty surrounding Capela's potential return this season, but now he will have a much better shot at getting a few games below his belt before the conclusion of the season. If Capela does indeed find himself on the court for a few games, we'd have to imagine that he will be on a strict minutes limit as Lloyd Pierce alluded to last month.

    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson is fully cleared from mononucleosis that he has been battling for the past few weeks.

    Johnson missed the final three games before the league was suspended due to mononucleosis, but will be ready to go when the season starts up again. Johnson was looking at an expanded role with Kelly Oubre Jr. injured, but there is now a chance that Oubre Jr. will be ready a situation to monitor when the season gets ready to resume.

  • Joe Harris
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris said that he would like to re-sign with the Nets this summer.

    When Harris was asked if he would like to play with the Nets next season, he replied, “Yeah, definitely! Why wouldn’t you?" The Nets will have Harris' Bird Rights and will certainly like to bring him back, but Harris will be a highly-coveted free agent this summer and will be looking to cash in on what is seen as a weaker free agent class.

  • Jonathan Isaac
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Jonathan Isaac has been continuing his rehab work from a severe knee sprain amid the NBA hiatus.

    Isaac has been out since early in the calendar year after suffering a left knee sprain and bone bruise. The NBA denied the Magic a Disabled Player Exception earlier in the year, as doctors believed that Isaac wouldn't be out until mid June. Isaac was a long shot to return by the playoffs, but the hiatus has given him a better chance to return and potentially be ready for the start of the playoffs. This is an interesting watch as we continue to wait for the NBA, and life in general, to resume as normal.

  • LeBron James

    The New York Post's Marc Berman reports that the NBA's best-case scenario is looking like a late June to early July brief regular season restart with a one-site, 16-team playoff, possibly with each series a best-of-three.

    He mentions that a league official said that nothing is off the table, so we're far away from anything definitive. There is still obviously a chance that the season gets cancelled, but the league is "very determined to have a champion". Don't expect anything to be determined for many weeks, if not months.
