** (10) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Russell Westbrook PG
-Grabbing Westbrook at the end of round one was a huge win for me, I have Westbrook ranked as the top PG this year.  Finally healthy I expect big things from Russ especially early in the season due to the Durant injury.

** (11) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – DeMarcus Cousins C
(12)  Team 9 – Carmelo  Anthony SF
(13) Team 8 – Blake  Griffin PF
(14) Team 7 – LaMarcus  Aldridge PF

(17) Team 4 – Damian Lillard PG
(18) Team 3 – Kyrie Irving PG
(19) Team 2 – Chris  Bosh C
(20) Team 1 – Ty Lawson PG

-After grabbing my PG I wanted to go big man.  There are not a lot of ELITE big men in the game today, and even though I’m not a fan of his personally Demarcus Cousins on the court game is fantastic.  Every year he seems to improve, I just hope his immaturity doesnt stand in the way of his basketball success.

(29)  Team 9 – Joakim  Noah C
** (30) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Andre Drummond C
-Partially because I have my doubts on Cousins, I took my third round pick on Andre Drummond who, in a few years should be where Anthony Davis is–about to dominate the NBA.

Round: 4
** (31) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Kenneth Faried PF
(32)  Team 9 – Mike Conley PG
(33) Team 8 – Andrew Wiggins SG
(34) Team 7 – Paul  Millsap PF
(35) Team 6- Monta Ellis SG
(36) Team 5 – Klay Thompson SG
(37) Team 4- Nikola Vucevic C
(38) Team 3 – Kobe  Bryant SG
(39) Team 2 – Rudy Gay SF
(40) Team 1 – Eric  Bledsoe PG
– If you cant tell I went big men 3 out of my first 4 picks.  I should win the rebounding category every week/  Kenneth Faried is no exception.  I give myself a “fan” pick in every draft and thats why I went Faried.  I just love watching him play, and having him on my fantasy team is icing on the cake. 
Kenneth Faried's fantasy value has improved greatly with his play in the FIBA World Cup.

(48) Team 8 – Jrue Holiday PG
(49)  Team 9 – Gordon Hayward SG
** (50) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Bradley  Beal SG
– I had drafted Beal before news broke that his injury was more severe than originally thought.  I was planning on having Beal be the perfect compliment on my roster, a two guard coming into his prime that can make the three ball.  Now I am forced to make a decision, do I wait until he is healthy up to 8 weeks maybe more?  Or try and trade the young star for a competent healthy player now?

Round: 6
** (51) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Lance Stephenson SG
(52)  Team 9 – Jeff Teague PG
(53) Team 8- Michael Carter-Williams PG
(54) Team 7 – Deron Williams PG
(55) Team 6 – Victor Oladipo SG
(56) Team 5 – Ricky Rubio PG
(57) Team 4 – David Lee PF
(58) Team 3- Tim Duncan PF
(59) Team 2 – Dwyane  Wade SG
(60) Team 1 – Wesley Matthews SG
As I’ve stated Lance Stephenson should adapt well to his new team.  He will be given more offensive responsibility and is a fantasy stat sheet stuffer.
Stephenson's change of scenery could mean big things for the versatile wing player.

(67) Team 7- Markieff  Morris PF
(68) Team 8 – Larry Sanders C
(69)  Team 9 – Ryan Anderson PF
** (70) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Trevor Ariza SF
I have Ariza as a sleeper pick, and even though I grabbed him earlier than I had wanted.  I did not want to risk the chance of losing him.
Ariza turned a career year into a large contract with the Rockets.  Sound familiar? He did the same thing back in 2009---when he posted career highs.

(77) Team 4 – David West PF
(78) Team 3 – Greg Monroe PF
(79) Team 2 – Terrence Jones PF
(80) Team 1 – Luol Deng SF
Afflalo had a career year last year in Orlando.  Coming back to Denver his numbers should drop some (because of the Nuggets deep roster) but for an 8th round pick and backup SG I like what Afflalo brings–pts, 3s, rebounds, assists.

** (90) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Elfrid Payton PG
-I’m not huge on drafting rookies but Payton will have the chance to play solid minutes on a young Magic roster.  With his talent he will become a hot commodity in fantasy leagues.

(98) Team 3- Jamal Crawford SG
(99) Team 2 – Kevin Martin SG
(100) Team 1 – Jordan Hill PF
-I had to have the “Greek Freak”.  Watching him mature throughout his rookie season in 2013-14 made me think he can be something special.  I’m not saying this year, but the second year pro should be a lot more consistent.  Jason Kidd plans to play in him in a multitude of positions, including point guard.  That should be fun to watch.

** (110) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Wilson Chandler SF
-I wanted to nab Galinari but he was surpsingly taken in the 8th round which I thought was high for a player coming off an ACL injury.  Hence why I grabbed his more than capable backup Chandler.  I think the Nugs will ease Gallo’s minutes-which should mean production from Wilson.

** (130) MyFantasy SportsTalk.com – Andrea Bargnani PF
I ended the draft with my ultimate sleeper pick.  The former #1 pick.  I have heard rumblings out of Knicks camp that Fisher plans to utilize Bargnani a lot better than Woodson did last year.  Cant hurt to have a big man that can drain 3’s–one thing my team is lacking.
Bargnani could surprise people this season.
