About Trevor Crippen - RotoBaller

I live in Boston, but grew up in Washington state, where I picked up bad habits like rooting for the Mariners.

Always a bridesmaid, the Dallas Mavericks once again whiffed on attracting any big names to Dallas, not finding themselves in the conversation for Kevin Durant, while falling short of more realistic targets like Hassan Whiteside, Al Horford, and Dwight Howard. They couldn't even keep their main in-house free agent, as Chandler Parsons bolted for the... Read More

Well that just happened.  Kevin Durant shook up the NBA landscape by leaving the only franchise he's ever played for to join a team that just set the NBA regular season wins record.  While the sky's the limit for the new super team Warriors, the Thunder are left devastated in the wake of Durant's departure,...

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Yahoo!

Wright has never played more than around 20 minutes a game, though,... Read More
