The NBA season is just around the corner.  Teams will be starting training camp soon, which means it time to prepare for your fantasy draft.

Fantasy basketball is tough.  You need to focus on dual eligibility to get the most out of your players.  However, the most important thing is finding that gem at the end of the draft.  A player that is worth taking a risk on.

There are a few principles I follow when drafting my fantasy team.  First, I don't draft from the best teams.  You won't find anyone from Boston or Los Angeles (Lakers, not Clippers) on my roster, with the exception of Kobe Bryant.  The problem with these teams is they are too good and all you are doing is drafting based on the player's name.

Next, I focus on point guards and power forwards.  This covers almost all of the statistical categories.  Point guards generally get you assists, steals and a high free throw percentage.  Whereas power forwards typically get rebounds, blocks and a high field goal percentage.  And both give you points.  The problem is I tend to lose turnovers and three-point field goals most weeks.
