The inaugural season of the Blogs By Fans Fantasy Hoops Keeper league kicked off last night with our live auction draft. I've always felt that we haven't done enough to incorporate fantasy sports into what we do here on the network, so I'm hoping this league will be the start of a new tradition.

I'm pretty happy with the way my team turned out, I'm weak at center and I need one or two young guys to pay off, but overall, I think it looks solid. My team is listed below (price payed for the player in parens), after the jump you can see the draft results. I'll post updates on the league here throughout the season.

  • PG - Jose Calderon ($17)
  • SG - Andre Iguodala ($30)
  • SF - LeBron James ($60)
  • PF - Elton Brand ($39)
  • C - Kendrick Perkins ($1)
  • G - Mo Williams ($9)
  • F - Mike Miller ($17)
  • Util - Mike Bibby ($9)
  • Util - Thad Young ($8)
  • Util - Kevin Love ($6)
  • Bench - Russell Westbrook ($1)
  • Bench - Ronny Turiaf ($1)
  • Bench - Jason Maxiell ($1)
  • IR - Brendan Haywood ($1)
Spending $60 on LeBron early pretty much meant I had to pick and choose my spots throughout. I had my mind set on 4 guys after LeBron: Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala, Jose Calderon and Mike Miller. I wound up overpaying for Iguodala and Brand (mostly because everyone in the league knew I wanted them, so they drove up the price), I got Miller for pretty much what I thought he'd go for, and Calderon seemed like a real bargain at $17. I was prepared to go into the high $20s to get him. His low turnover rate is huge for a point guard in a league that counts turnovers.

Bibby and Mo Williams both seemed like good values and with LeBron and Iguodala as my wings, I should dominate assists. I'm probably going to be middle of the pack in rebounds, lower half in turnovers (because I have 3 points and LeBron/Iguodala turn the ball over too much), and up there in all other categories. The only guy on my team who shoots less than 45% from the floor is Bibby.

Anyway, that's my team, and some of my logic. After the jump you'll find the results from the entire draft. Enjoy.
