Yannis’ comments on his draft:

*I know that he’s primarily a scorer, but this Lakers team is in desperate need of scoring and have plenty of touches to give to Nick Young, who I think is a must-play at $3,500.

*Even though Lebron James wants to play less, this team simply isn’t at a point where they can afford to play him less minutes right now. And, I don’t think that he would even want to play less tonight against the team that beat him in the NBA Finals last year in such convincing fashion. This one is going to be a little personal for LeBron, and I’m expecting one of his patented, stat-stuffing performances.

*At $3,900, Iman Shumpert jumps off of the page as a great value selection. He’s coming off of a great game against at stout Bucks’ defense, and I’m banking on him being able to really tear apart a Timberwolves’ defense that is nowhere near as formidable.

There are 11 games on tap in the NBA tonight, giving you plenty to choose from. Here’s how much the top players in the league will cost you tonight:
