How good was James Harden this season? He had more points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks than the one and only crowned "King" of the NBA, LeBron James.  Granted, that was in 10 more games played.  Harden's 528 assists was easily the most among forward eligible players in fantasy basketball. LeBron, Tyreke Evans and Evan Turner were the only others with 400+ assists.  Harden lead all forwards in steals and was 3rd to Klay Thompson and Kyle Korver in 3pt made. Fantasy.Basketball.MVP

No forward averaged more fantasy points per game than Anthony Davis, but he has played just 62 games. The Brow was so dominate when he played this season that only Russell Westbrook averaged more points per game.

DeMarcus Cousins was the only other forward to average 60 fantasy points per game and even added back to back triple-doubles during the fantasy playoffs, with 20 points and 20 rebounds!  However, he has played in just 59 games for the Sacramento Kings.

Pau Gasol took over the Chicago Bulls in his first season with the team, but is happy to have Jimmy Butler back and will gladly welcome back a healthy Derrick Rose with open arms!

Finish Strong 


The Philadelphia 76ers might suck, but they have Nerlens Noel, who proved them right in trading Jrue Holiday for him during the 2013 NBA draft.  Noel put up 13.4 points, 10 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 2.2 blocks per game after the NBA All-Star game.  He was the 5th best forward in fantasy basketball over the final 30 days of the fantasy season.

Will Joel Embiid have a similar impact next season?
