The NBA wraps up the season's first half in style with a great double header tonight on TNT. At 8pm Eastern, its the Thunder hosting the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City, followed by the battle of Los Angeles featuring the Clippers and Lakers. The "Grammy" break is over and both LA teams are road weary and ready for a return to the Staples Center. NBA fans won't be without the game as All-Star weekend in Houston tips off on Friday.
As we wrap up the early returns around the Association, we take a look at point guards. The elite point guards provide scoring, assists and steals, while the rest contribute in just two or even only one of the categories. Obviously its important to grab your point guards during the draft or auction as the chances of grabbing a "great" one during the season through free agency or waivers is doubtful. The best chance to improve your lot mid-season is to find emerging rookies or players getting increased playing time due to injury. From time to time a point may move to two guard, opening up a spot for some new talent.
As we roll into the 2012-'13 NBA season, we're going to take you through an overview of each of the six divisions. Who are key newcomers? Who are notable for your fantasy team? Last season was brutal with a late and sudden December start to an abbreviated season. We wrap up our previews, staying in the Western Conference, with the Pacific Division. The Lakers have assembled the latest "Dream Team" with Steve Nash and Dwight Howard now running showtime alongside Kobe. The Clippers are now a force, with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin leading the way. Golden State finally landed a big man to help David Lee, now if only Andrew Bogut can stay healthy. Watch out for Sacramento and mercurial big man DeMarcus Cousins. Marcin Gortat was a nice find in the desert, but Phoenix just doesn't have the horses to compete.
As we play out the final month of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference with the Sacramento Kings..
