    so we all know its KD then Lebron in every league...

    the question that always pops up is who's 3rd now?



    is Anthony Davis worthy of the 3rd pick? Steph? Love? Harden?

    To me it's between Davis and Harden. Howard is a maybe too. For my first pick I want either the most explosive player or the most consistent. I hate Harden and Howard, but they get the job done in fantasy.

    Probably. I don't remember their numbers from last year off the top of my head though. It also depends on how your point breakdown is. If you get extra points for double-doubles, big men are a premium. Howard is a coward and an idiot, but he's consistently a 20/10 threat with a couple blocks and steals thrown in there.

    I'd go with Curry with that stat set up. For blocks and boards you can get a quality guy within the next two rounds to help out with that. Curry is near the top of the league in points, steals, assists, threes and he's top 25 in free throws made.

    And he doesn't suck so much at one aspect of the game that the coach has to take him out at certain times due to sucking.

    extra points for threes? any extra points for double-doubles or triple-doubles?

    If you get extra points for threes, but not double-doubles then sure go with Curry over Howard. If not, then I go Howard first.

    Davis has more value in leagues that have fg% and ft% because not many bigs are as good as him in those categories. But he's EASILY top 5. You can't really go wrong with him at the 3rd pick
    especially after the fiba outing he had. He was the main guy. Anyone who can get you 20/10 and 2 blks is worthy of a top pick.

    With those categories a guy like harden holds a lot of value because he gets to the line a lot.
