Fantasy Through the Ages

January 6, 2007

I’ve always wanted to see a list of the best fantasy seasons of all-time. Our friends over at Give Me the Rock have created a list that comes pretty close, covering the years 1979-2005 (Note: it’s a big file). There they are—the best 9,168 individual seasons over those 26 seasons. Awesome.

Remember that old game Jordan vs. Bird: One-on-one? That’s what the top of the list looks like.

Other Sites to Aid Your Basketball Education

The good folks over at Give Me The Rock (one of the best basketball blogs out there) were kind enough to post a nice writeup of RotoPoll tonight:

For those who are statistically inclined, check out the RotoPoll Blog for fantasy analysis you can get lost in – including discussion of the most average fantasy player, the value of a missed shot, and some pretty slick player pages (complete with graphs).

Aw, shucks. They also mention Basketball Monster, an intense stat site with a lot of useful tools too. If you haven’t either of these sites before, go check them out.

Deadspin
You probably know about Deadspin, one of the web’s leading sports blogs (in fact, it’s probably how you found this site).

In the spirit of giving thanks, I’d like to just take a second and thanks the good folks at Deadspin for showing us some love lately. A few recent posts have made it onto their site:
