Two Golden State Warriors are sitting well in the Fantasy basketball draft ahead of NBA season opener. Stephen Curry is still in the lead, though Fantasy owners may not be happy that teammates are trailing behind. Kevin Durant is following the lead but Fantasy forecast shows that Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have possibility to land in top ten.
Fantasy basketball has Stephen Curry leading – for now
Stephen Curry is immovable in the first spot although there are perceptions that he may account less this season. Curry's Fantasy value may significantly drop because of the need to share the 2,500 minutes play with other Warriors. Equations are also very hard to land on logical explanation because three others share 100 percent plus of usage. more >>
It is still entirely too early to start picking the 2017 draft of the NBA. However, some names of young basketball players already emerged as top prospects for the league's next generation of stars.

Carmelo Anthony made history at the Rio 2016 Olympics as a three-time gold medalist and all-time leading scorer of the U.S. Men's National Basketball Team. Amidst Olympic success, his former college coach made a sobering forecast that the star forward of the New York Knicks is unlikely to win an NBA championship.

Luis Suarez is en route to another record-shattering La Liga performance. Suarez starts the season with three goals. Another breakthrough for the Barcelona star is the 100 percent accuracy at the opener. Current standings set Suarez for one goal in every 30 minutes within a 90-minute regulation. Here are the leaders in La Liga scoring charts.
The Suarez fever
The "Suarez fever" is storming La Liga since the opening kickoff. The current pace is reminiscent of last season when the 29-year old Uruguayan finished with 40 goals.

These set the striker apart to the elite club. more >>

Despite this, rumors still abound and many experts and regular fans speculate that the following players will be traded within the 2016-17 regular season. more >>
