Podcast by Rotoworld Basketball
The All-Load Management Team
Matt Stroup and Steve Alexander delve into a dangerous fantasy basketball experiment, drafting a team of wildly talented players who miss way too many games. We discuss what could happen if you loaded a squad with Kawhi Leonard, Joel Embiid, Kyrie Irving, Kristaps Porzingis, Draymond Green, Kevin Love, Otto Porter, Derrick Rose and others. Plus, why names such as Lou Williams, Spencer Dinwiddie, Marcus Smart and Al Horford all become essential in the event you try this (which you probably shouldn't).
It's Never Too Early To Talk Oladipo
Or maybe it is? On this week's episode, Matt Stroup and Steve Alexander comb through some recent NBA headlines, including Victor Oladipo reportedly looking for a max contract, and Kawhi Leonard's teammates reportedly frustrated that he sits out a whole bunch of games. We discuss their respective numbers and what we expect from each of them in fantasy leagues next season.
Trusting Butler And Bam, Red Flags For Porzingis And Embiid
Matt Stroup and Steve Alexander look back at the finish of the NBA Finals, and consider what to expect moving forward in fantasy leagues from Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo after their remarkable run in the playoffs. Plus, we're optimistic about Pascal Siakam after a frustrating time in the NBA Bubble for the Raptors star, and cause for concern rises when it comes to Kristaps Porzingis (knee surgery) and Joel Embiid (load management).
Last Chance For The Heat, New Beginnings for Harris, Embiid, Simmons
Matt Stroup and Steve Alexander look at the latest from the NBA Finals as Jimmy Butler and the Heat try to stay alive against LeBron James and the Lakers in Game 5 on Friday night. Plus, with Doc Rivers taking over as head coach of the Sixers, we discuss how the fantasy outlook could change (or not change) for Tobias Harris, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons moving forward.
Early Fantasy Top-12: How High Can Tatum And Trae Climb?
Matt Stroup and Steve Alexander first take a moment to marvel at another incredible game from Jimmy Butler in the NBA Finals, then turn their attention to a very early fantasy leaderboard for 2020-21, with Damian Lillard, Trae Young, Luka Doncic and Jayson Tatum all looking poised to repeat/return first-round value, while Giannis Antetokounmpo and the aforementioned Butler lead to divided opinions among our (two-man) panel.
Heat Crushed By Injuries, Steph and Klay Looking Healthy
Matt Stroup and Steve Alexander react to Game 1 of the NBA Finals, which saw the Heat get crushed by the Lakers and by injuries, with Goran Dragic, Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler all getting hurt to varying degrees. Plus, with positive reports coming out of Warriors minicamp regarding Klay Thompson and Steph Curry — and some lingering knee trouble for Kemba Walker — we discuss the outlook moving forward for all three 30-something stars.

Best fantasy NBA podcast
Mike is the best and all the other guests are great as well. I can’t believe we get this stuff for free...Mike is always giving away gems and is an actual smart person talking about fantasy hoops. I remember killing it in fantasy every year, before yahoo sports started using Rotoworld. I don’t really get these reviews that give less than 5 stars. I’ve listened to all the other fantasy b-ball podcasts and they were all so bad compared to this one. One of them was rated 5 stars so I decided to check it out and they were talking about fake news 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
In a time when we lack content and people are starved for analysis on the upcoming NBA season resume I would have expected at least some type of insightfulness from the Roto team... What a colossal disappointment. You don’t know the structure, you don’t understand the storylines for the teams, but most importantly, “Kyle Kuzma Is going to play a major role, I think he’s a pretty good defender”- WHAT? Have you watched him? Have you looked at his stats? Are you part of the highlight generation who the only hoops you watch are on Snapchat? I’m so confused, and disappointed. Happy to takeover the podcast and provide the listeners actual analysis if Roto is interested in reaching out.
Good Info and entertaining.5 stars
