Week 7 (already?!) prep

This might be a quick post - I've got a final round interview with a library here in NYC and need to head out the door before long. I'll try to get another post up this afternoon with more links plus some info on this week's FFLibrarian weekly contest with 365FantasySports (password is book7 for you eager beavers out there).

Last night I had about 17 different windows open on my computer, working on a presentation that's part of my interview today, working on my Bruno Boys article, and working on my links for the NY Times' Fifth Down. My night work session was peppered with cheers from our downstairs neighbor who is quite clearly a Yankees fan. Speaking of baseball, big night tonight in our house since my husband is a big Dodgers fan...

Anyway, here are some quick morning links:


Finally, I'm playing a new fantasy sport this year, my fine readers: fantasy basketball. I'm starting the prep but would love to hear about any favorite fantasy basketball sites that you all use. Not sure I'm ready to whip up a Fantasy Basketball Librarian site quite yet, but that's on the horizon.

Thanks Lester. I knew you covered fantasy bball, and trust me, that will be one of my go-to sites for sure!

Jason, I'll probably post about fantasy basketball every once in awhile and will be sure to link out to my favorites.

FHoops sites for beginners that I *strongly* recommend:

BuserSports.com
Start here. Period.

BasketballMonster.com
(especially if you play H2H or if you have any unusual league scoring options) BBM is a free site with option to pay for premium services. I've never upgraded there, but the free stuff is so good that I almost want to upgrade just to say Thank You. Use the 'values' option, which tells you whether Dirk's 88% FT is better than Kevin Martin's high volume 86%...

For more intermediate FCagers
HoopsAddict.com
HoopsHype.com
FantasyBasketballCafe.com
DraftExpress.com (to form your own opinions about rookies and 2nd/3rd year players - especially for keeper leagues)

Enjoy fantasy basketball, and don't hesitate to pm Dangerous Beans / Sicksers! / EshInPennsyltucky for hoops advice.
