We are in a very interesting time when it comes to the debate of difficulty in video games. The likes of Dark Souls, Hotline Miami and Cuphead have been flying the flag for super hard titles that are gloriously satisfying to overcome after the hours of blind rage that they can make you feel.

At the same time, there is the important discussion about accessibility and, on top of that, does a game have to be hard? Couldn't FromSoftware just put a few more difficulty modes into Bloodborne so that more players stood a chance to appreciate it? Or does that water down the appeal?

It's a debate for another time certainly but some video games know where they stand when it comes to the skill expected out of a player.

It's not enough for some video games to expect a certain level of expertise. Sometimes, a title has to rub salt into the wound by telling you just how big of a failure you are. You thought making the same mistake over and over again was bad, how about if the game pointed that out to you?

In this list, we'll be exploring video games that have injured you and then insulted you for not being up to their high standards.

Whilst the second game in the series gets the most praise, Streets of Rage 3 released in the waning years of Sega’s 16bit console and provided a solid follow-up experience.

There’s two things that really stick the knife in with Streets of Rage 3’s “easy” mode. Like several titles of the era, Streets of Rage 3 ends early and removes its final few stages for its more inexperienced players.

At the end of stage 5 (of 7), the game comes to an unexpected end where most of the story strands aren’t resolved and the game badmouths you to boot. The defeated robotic boss of the previous stage slyly remarks “you play this game like a beginner” before ceasing function.

Firstly, this is clearly adding insult to injury for proud gamers who resigned themselves to playing on easy because they were struggling with the difficulty the game boots up with. However, in Japan (where it’s known as Bare Knuckle 3), this difficulty is Streets of Rage 3’s normal mode. So, you might well think bad of yourself for picking the easier route through the Mega Drive beat-em-up but you’re actually playing what is the standard difficulty overseas and you still get mocked for it.

Come on, be a big strong Western video gamer and play on a harder setting next time… apparently?

Killexams : 2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Mock Draft 2.0: The remix — who's up and who's down?

Click here for the original version of this mock draft

Editor’s note: Not all players will have accompanying analysis after their pick.

Without further ado, the first pick in the 2022-2023 fantasy basketball draft goes to …

1.01 Nikola Jokic – C, Denver Nuggets

No surprise here. Jokic is a fantasy basketball cheat code after posting a historic 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 1.3 threes and 2.4 stocks  (steals plus blocks) per game with 58/34/81 shooting splits last season. He had the highest single-season Box Plus/Minus (BPM) in NBA history and is the unanimous first-overall pick here.

1.02 Joel Embiid – PF/C, Philadelphia 76ers

Coming off his best statistical season and playing a career-high 68 games, Embiid will be the focal point of a fantasy-friendly Sixers offense. As one of the most dominant big men in the league, he finished fourth in the NBA in double-doubles with 2.7 stocks on the defensive end. He should have no issues replicating a top-three performance on a per-game and totals basis if he can play at least 60 games this year.

1.03 Kevin Durant – SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets

Durant finished second on a per-game basis in 2021-22, and he’ll continue to see a 30 percent usage rate this season. I expect the Nets to finish top-10 in Pace and Offensive Rating, and KD will lead the way. He checks every box for fantasy basketball.

1.04 Giannis Antetokounmpo – PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis is the only player in NBA history to average at least 25 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in multiple seasons, and he’s done it four years in a row. He finished 10th on a per-game basis last season, but an uptick in three-pointers made while shooting over 72% from the free-throw line will help justify drafting him here.

1.05 Luka Doncic – PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks

Luka Magic is in effect. Yeah, he’s known to turn the ball over at a high rate and miss a ton of free throws, but I’m buying his numbers after the Kristaps Porzingis trade. 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 8.1 assists with 3.9 threes and 1.0 steal. He’s ripe for an MVP-like season.

1.06 Jayson Tatum – SF/PF, Boston Celtics (Original Pick: No.7)

I moved Tatum up in my latest mock draft because I think he’ll be more valuable outside of scoring and threes than Stephen Curry. He’ll command a higher usage rate, shoots a higher percentage from the field, and can check every box, similar to Kevin Durant.

[Get in on the fun this fantasy hoops season: Create or join a league now!]

Original take: Still only 24 years old, Tatum put up career-highs in points, rebounds and assists last year with a 32% usage rate. DAWG.

1.07 Stephen Curry – PG, Golden State Warriors (Original Pick: No.6)

The 2022 Finals MVP and four-time champion annually anchors the points, threes and free throw percentage categories in fantasy basketball. I project Curry’s minutes and usage will remain in the 30s as the centerpiece of one of the best teams in basketball.

1.08 Tyrese Haliburton – PG/SG, Indiana Pacers (Original Pick. No.9)

Haliburton moves up because Harden looks passive on offense. While he’s still a first-round pick, I’m moving Harden lower (as you’ll see below) as he’s becoming more of a facilitator at this stage in his career.

Original take: If you don’t know, now you know. I’ve seen Haliburton selected in the top five in industry expert drafts, but I’m comfortable grabbing him in the top 10. I’m teetering between Haliburton and LaMelo Ball in this spot, but the former is a good bet to average the most assists per game this year and score over 20 points per night with solid peripherals. In 18 games without Malcolm Brogdon last season, Haliburton tallied 18.6 points, 10.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.8 steals with 50/46/89 shooting splits. Breakout!

1.09 Damian Lillard – PG, Portland Trail Blazers

Lillard was 13th on my draft board, but he gets a substantial boost after Harden falls, LaMelo Balls ankle injury and Karl-Anthony Towns’ recovery from an illness. Lillard is healthy and has a better team, so fantasy managers should feel comfortable selecting Lillard as a top-10 pick.

1.10 Karl-Anthony Towns – PF/C, Minnesota Timberwolves (Original Pick. No. 11)

Towns gets a slight boost here from pick 11 as he’s back on the court and played well in his only preseason appearance. Now, Rudy Gobert was in street clothes, but Towns looks back to form despite the reported weight loss due to his illness — nineteen points with six rebounds and six assists in his preseason debut.

Original take: The Timberwolves’ frontcourt suddenly got crowded after they traded for Utah Jazz All-Star center and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert this offseason. Gobert’s presence should slide KAT to a true-stretch four, which has risks and benefits. He finished eighth on a per-game basis last year, but I’d expect his rebound numbers to drop slightly with a boost in made threes. KAT is accustomed to playing with an offensively limited frontcourt (Taj Gibson, Jarred Vanderbilt), so I’m not overly concerned about Gobert being in town. He should still be able to collect at least two stocks and be the best-shooting big man in the league. Forty-one percent from beyond the arc last year and 40% for this career, just sayin’.

1.11 James Harden – PG/SG, Philadelphia 76ers (Original Pick, No. 8)

My previous take had Harden “squarely in the top-10” conversation, but from what I’ve seen in the preseason, Harden is closer to last year’s version than the Harden of old. Still, he’s a first-round player for his cross-categorical contributions.

Original take: Harden’s decision to make less and return to Philly on a two-year deal shows he’s ready to ball. The hamstring injury that’s plagued him for two seasons is behind him, and he’s reportedly in great shape heading into this season. He was the only player in the NBA to post over 20+ points and 10+ assists per game in ’21-’22 and finished 15th on a per-game basis despite changing teams midseason and playing on a bum leg. A bounce-back should put him squarely in the top 10 in fantasy basketball.

1.12 LaMelo Ball – PG/SG, Charlotte Hornets (Original Pick: No. 9)

A sprained ankle will cost the dynamic point guard the first couple of weeks of the regular season. He’s moving down a few spots merely because of the injury. He should still be in line for another standout, All-Star-level season.

Original take: LaMelo Ball enters his third NBA season looking to build off career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, threes made, and FT%. He’s also among the league leaders in steals. The loss of Miles Bridges might decrease his passing numbers after accounting for 23% of Ball’s assists in ’21-’22, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to see a 30% usage while filling up the box score alongside Terry Rozier.

2.01 Devin Booker – SG/SF, Phoenix Suns

The Suns seem like they’re going through it, but I don’t think it’ll have much bearing on Devin Booker’s production this season. He’s in his prime and an improved playmaker who’s also a walking bucket.

2.02 Kyrie Irving – PG/SG, Brooklyn Nets

He’ll play more than 29 games this year, and the Nets new “big 3” looked great in Wednesday’s matchup versus the Bucks. Uncle Drew will get his, scoring-wise, but there’s still upside in him as a distributor and rebounder at the position. His high efficiency and sneaky steals make him an early second-round pick in my book.

2.03 1.15 Trae Young – PG, Atlanta Hawks (Original Pick. No. 12)

My suspicions are trending in the right direction, as Trae Young’s assists were not what we’ve come to expect in latest years. Granted, it’s the preseason, but I think Dejounte Murray will continue to eat into his assists despite being one of the best scorers in the league.

[Try Yahoo Fantasy Plus for free to get premium basketball tools]

Original take: Trae Young has a new backcourt mate in All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, but he should still be one of the best fantasy guards this upcoming season. He’s a volume scorer who ranked fourth in usage rate last year at 34.4. I expect Hawks head coach Nate McMillan to stagger Young and Murray’s minutes at the point but also deliver Young the chance to work more off-ball to create better looks on the perimeter. He should still boast substantial fantasy numbers without much offense around him and Murray.

2.04 Kawhi Leonard – SG/SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

While this may seem high for a player coming off of injury, Kawhi is one of the best two-way players in fantasy while sporting elite shooting percentages. Paul George admitted that Kawhi is the alpha for the Clippers, and despite being load managed at times, he’s one of the best on a per-game basis in fantasy basketball.

2.05 Dejounte Murray – PG/SG, Atlanta Hawks

He might be better than Trae Young in fantasy this season. I’m here for another monster season, live from the A.

2.06 Anthony Davis – PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers

Will he play center or not? Not sure that it matters much for fantasy considering he just needs to STAY HEALTHY. Davis was a top-12 player on a per-game basis last season before getting injured so going back to the well. He’s too talented to go beyond the first 18 picks.

2.07 Paul George – SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

The run on perennial All-Stars continues. George is the second option of arguably the best roster in the Western Conference. He might take games off here and there, but PG, similar to Kawhi Leonard, is an exceptional two-way player. If he can cut down on his turnovers and Excellerate his shooting from the field, he could return to first-round value this year.

2.08 LeBron James – SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

The King is back and ready to make yet another run for a title. It helps that his teammates are healthy, and while his scoring will likely take a dip, he’s one of a handful of players capable of a triple-double every night.

2.09 Anthony Edwards – SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

You’ll likely have to pay up for Ant-man, but he is undoubtedly in breakout territory. He’s well-positioned to make the jump into an All-Star this year. He’s a great source of points, steals, threes and his athleticism makes him a solid rebounder and blocker at his position.

2.10 Domantas Sabonis – PF/C, Sacramento Kings

Drafting a player from the Sacramento Kings this early may feel odd, but Sabonis is one of fantasy basketball’s most versatile big men. He won’t do a ton defensively, but he’ll be a reliable source of points, rebounds, assists and FG% as a second-round pick.

2.11 Fred VanVleet – PG/SG, Toronto Raptors

Minimal competition in the backcourt, plus he’ll likely be top five in minutes played. He’s a perfect selection when punting field-goal percentage (pair with Luka Doncic, perhaps?) but also will be among the league leaders in threes, steals and FT percentage.

2.12 Bam Adebayo – PF/C, Miami Heat

His assists are down since Kyle Lowry arrived, but he’s attempting more threes in the preseason than he has in his career. He is a nice grab here for his defensive stats and double-double potential.

3.01 Donovan Mitchell – PG/SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

Mitchell finished in the top 30 in per-game value last season and top 50 the year prior. The Cavs are deep, but he’ll be the primary scorer on one of the most fantasy-friendly teams in the league. I’m expecting his points to dip, but he’ll still be one of the better guards of fantasy.

3.02 Cade Cunningham – PG/SG, Detroit Pistons

One of my breakouts, so grabbing him as an early third-round pick is the way to go.

3.03 Pascal Siakam – PF/C, Toronto Raptors

Siakam is a stat stuffer who will finish in the top five in minutes played. He’s an ideal fit for any fantasy managers interested in punting blocks, rebounds, and FG%.

3.04 Rudy Gobert – C, Minnesota Timberwolves

3.05 DeMar DeRozan – SF/PF, Chicago Bulls

3.06 Ja Morant – PG, Memphis Grizzlies

3.07 Darius Garland – PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

He’s got the sauce, plus he’s an exceptional passer and facilitator who can score at will. He and Donovan Mitchell can thrive together and should make for one heck of a dynamic duo in fantasy. I’m still expecting him to be one of the top distributors but provide points, threes, steals and an elite FT percentage in category leagues.

3.08 Chris Paul – PG, Phoenix Suns

3.09 Jimmy Butler – SF/PF, Miami Heat

3.10 Bradley Beal – SG, Washington Wizards

3.11 Nikola Vucevic – C, Chicago Bulls

3.12 Zion Williamson – PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Zion tweaked his ankle in his last preseason game, but Pelicans HC Willie Green and Zion both said that “he’s doing fine.” I’m confident he is still worthy of being selected in the first three rounds.

Killexams : New Mock Draft Sends Lions’ Unexpected Quarterback With Top Selection

Getty Tanner McKee throws a pass for Stanford in 2021.

The Detroit Lions have started the season 1-3 so far, so many folks have already turned their thoughts to the impending 2023 NFL draft, right or wrong.

For anyone who has given up on the Lions already, there’s at least some good news in the fact that a mock draft has debuted which shows the Lions landing a quarterback. That quarterback, however, is more than a bit interesting.

Pro Football Focus and writer Michael Renner took a look at putting together an early mock draft for 2023. When it came to Detroit’s first pick at ninth-overall, Renner had the team going with a quarterback. That player? Stanford’s Tanner McKee, whom he liked the development of.

“The Jared Goff era in Detroit may be coming to a close after this season. McKee is one of the more pro-ready quarterbacks in the class. He possesses a live arm at 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds and has made big strides in his decision-making from Year 1 to Year 2. That shows in his two turnover-worthy plays this season after he made 15 a year ago,” Renner wrote.

Obviously, it’s very interesting to see the site proclaiming the Lions will go with a quarterback. So far this season, Jared Goff has been on fire, and has looked like a solution for the team. The defense, meanwhile, feels like it has the much bigger needs at this point in time.

The Lions go on with the 26th pick in the mock draft from Los Angeles to select Siaki Ika from Baylor, a defensive lineman. That move would certainly help what’s been a poor group thus far.

Still, McKee will make all the headlines, so it’s fair to shine the spotlight brightest on him right now.


McKee’s Stats & Highlights

If McKee isn’t on the radar of many folks at this point, that would make sense. The quarterback is playing for a Stanford team that has struggled out of the gate to a 1-3 record so far.

Obviously, that doesn’t mean that McKee isn’t talented, of course. The quarterback has put up some solid stats thus far, with 3,369 yards and 23 career touchdowns to just 11 interceptions through the first few games of 2022.

Here’s a look at some of his highlights:


Tanner McKee 2021 Highlights | Stanford QB | 2023 NFL Draft ProspectProductive quarterback for the Cardinal 2021 Stats: 65.4% Cmp, 2327 Yds, 15 TD, 7 INT, 4 Rush TD 2022-01-02T20:47:47Z

Obviously, McKee is not one of the bigger name quarterbacks in this class, so for that reason, the projection might draw some early scrutiny from fans. He’s also more of a pocket passer like Goff, which might turn some folks off who are looking for something different at the position.

PFF obviously projects a breakout from McKee to have him as a top 10 pick now, so it will be fascinating to tune in on him the rest of the season to see what he does.


2023 NFL Quarterback Class Solid

As weak as the 2022 quarterback class seemed on the outset, the 2023 class could prove to be just the polar opposite by the time this season plays out.

From Alabama’s Bryce Young to Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, there will be no shortage of elite players that could choose to come out, which means the Lions could have a good shot at finding their quarterback of the future. Kentucky’s Will Levis and Florida’s Anthony Richardson are a few more names coming into focus as well.

Young claimed the Heisman Trophy for his work in the 2021-22 season, and only figures to Excellerate as a passer short of some injury concerns. Stroud has gotten off to a hot start, and many like Levis have intrigued scouts thus far as well.

Whether or not the Lions will finish bad enough in 2022 to land a top pick remains to be seen. The team showed signs of promise amid a losing year in 2021, and with more improvements, could win a few more games. The point stands that the quarterback class figures to be more well-rounded this coming year

Right now, McKee is the player that PFF sees the Lions targeting when all is said and done.

Comment

A California high school will forfeit the rest of its varsity football season after some players were captured on video appearing to act out a “slave auction” of their Black teammates.

The Yuba City Unified School District first forfeited last Friday’s game after administrators became aware of the video Thursday, Superintendent Doreen Osumi said in a statement. The district later said it would forfeit the rest of the season after banning the involved team members from playing.

The mock auction at River Valley High School appeared organized, Osumi said, suggesting that the students planned the situation without considering that it was “disgraceful.”

“Reenacting a slave sale as a prank tells us that we have a great deal of work to do with our students so they can distinguish between intent and impact,” Osumi said. “They may have thought this skit was funny, but it is not; it is unacceptable and requires us to look honestly and deeply at issues of systemic racism.”

District administrators did not answer questions about how many students were involved, what specifically the video showed and where the recording was shared. The incident, which took place roughly 38 miles north of Sacramento, was previously reported by Sacramento-based television station KCRA and other local news outlets.

Mock slave auctions in schools — some sanctioned by officials and others not — have come under increased scrutiny in latest years as the United States struggles to respond to its history of racism and fractures over how much its past sins still shape it. Schools have been particularly heated settings for those arguments as politicians in Republican-led states seek to ban lessons that suggest that racism is systemic in the United States.

For the Yuba City district, the loss of the players means the team does not have enough members to complete the season. Sophomores and juniors on the varsity team, which was 0-5 before its first forfeit last week, can choose to play on the junior varsity team.

Some students may be further disciplined, Osumi said, and the district is working to develop programs about racism to help students learn from the situation. Administrators are also developing training for the football team “to act with character and dignity at all times,” she said.

“When students find humor in something that is so deeply offensive,” Osumi said, “it tells me that we have an opportunity to help them expand their mind-set to be more aware, thoughtful and considerate of others.”

The California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees high school sports in California, said it supports administrators’ decision “to promptly address the misconduct of their students.”

“Discrimination in any form or any acts that are disrespectful or demeaning are unacceptable and are not consistent with the principles of the CIF,” the group said in a statement.

Like the incident in Yuba City, some mock slave auctions have been instigated by students. In April 2021, a video shared on Snapchat showed students in Traverse City, Mich., “trading” their Black classmates. The district’s response, which included fast-tracking a resolution to better teach students how to live in a diverse country, roiled the community.

Other times, teachers have guided their students to act out an auction as a history lesson — often prompting outrage. That’s what happened in Maplewood, N.J., in 2017, when a substitute teacher orchestrated and filmed a mock auction as a lesson about Colonial history. Two years later, a teacher in Bronxville, N.Y., allegedly let White students “bid on” Black students. And in March, a North Carolina superintendent apologized after White middle-schoolers pretended to “sell” their Black classmates.

Killexams : 2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Mock Draft 2.0: The remix — who's up and who's down?

Fantasy basketball season is nearly coming to an end and drafts are ramping up! With only five days until the season tips off, it's helpful to participate in mock drafts so you can get a feel for when players are selected before your real draft kicks off.

With that in mind, here's my second mock iteration after having time to watch the preseason and ingest new information. Also, mock 2.0 is a more comprehensive look into how I'd draft the first THREE rounds for category leagues. And for additional insight, check out our latest Yahoo expert rankings to aid your draft prep.

Click here for the original version of this mock draft

Editor's note: Not all players will have accompanying analysis after their pick.

Without further ado, the first pick in the 2022-2023 fantasy basketball draft goes to …

No surprise here. Jokic is a fantasy basketball cheat code after posting a historic 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 1.3 threes and 2.4 stocks per game with 58/34/81 shooting splits last season. He had the highest single-season Box Plus/Minus (BPM) in NBA history and is the unanimous first-overall pick here.

Coming off his best statistical season and playing a career-high 68 games, Embiid will be the focal point of a fantasy-friendly Sixers offense. As one of the most dominant big men in the league, he finished fourth in the NBA in double-doubles with 2.7 stocks on the defensive end. He should have no issues replicating a top-three performance on a per-game and totals basis if he can play at least 60 games this year.

Durant finished second on a per-game basis in 2021-22, and he'll continue to see a 30 percent usage rate this season. I expect the Nets to finish top-10 in Pace and Offensive Rating, and KD will lead the way. He checks every box for fantasy basketball.

Giannis is the only player in NBA history to average at least 25 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in multiple seasons, and he's done it four years in a row. He finished 10th on a per-game basis last season, but an uptick in three-pointers made while shooting over 72% from the free-throw line will help justify drafting him here.

Luka Magic is in effect. Yeah, he's known to turn the ball over at a high rate and miss a ton of free throws, but I'm buying his numbers after the Kristaps Porzingis trade. 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 8.1 assists with 3.9 threes and 1.0 steals. He's ripe for an MVP-like season.

I moved Tatum up in my latest mock draft because I think he'll be more valuable outside of scoring and threes than Stephen Curry. He'll command a higher usage rate, shoots a higher percentage from the field, and can check every box, similar to Kevin Durant.

[Get in on the fun this fantasy hoops season: Create or join a league now!]

Original take: Still only 24 years old, Tatum put up career-highs in points, rebounds and assists last year with a 32% usage rate. DAWG.

The 2022 Finals MVP and four-time champion annually anchors the points, threes and free throw percentage categories in fantasy basketball. I project Curry's minutes and usage will remain in the 30s as the centerpiece of one of the best teams in basketball.

Haliburton moves up because Harden looks passive on offense. While he's still a first-round pick, I'm moving Harden lower (as you'll see below) as he's becoming more of a facilitator at this stage in his career.

Original take: If you don't know, now you know. I've seen Haliburton selected in the top five in industry expert drafts, but I'm comfortable grabbing him in the top 10. I'm teetering between Haliburton and LaMelo Ball in this spot, but the former is a good bet to average the most assists per game this year and score over 20 points per night with solid peripherals. In 18 games without Malcolm Brogdon last season, Haliburton tallied 18.6 points, 10.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.8 steals with 50/46/89 shooting splits. Breakout!

1.09 Damian Lillard - PG, Portland Trail Blazers

Lillard was 13th on my draft board, but he gets a substantial boost after Harden falls, LaMelo Ball's ankle injury and Karl-Anthony Towns' recovery from an illness. Lillard is healthy and has a better team, so fantasy managers should feel comfortable selecting Lillard as a top-10 pick.

1.10 Karl-Anthony Towns - PF/C, Minnesota Timberwolves (Original Pick. No. 11)

Towns gets a slight boost here from pick 11 as he's back on the court and played well in his only preseason appearance. Now, Rudy Gobert was in street clothes, but Towns looks back to form despite the reported weight loss due to his illness. Nineteen points with six rebounds and six assists in his preseason debut.

Original take: The Timberwolves frontcourt suddenly got crowded after they traded for Utah Jazz All-Star Center and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert this offseason. Gobert's presence should slide KAT to a true-stretch four, which has risks and benefits. He finished eighth on a per-game basis last year, but I'd expect his rebound numbers to drop slightly with a boost in made threes. KAT is accustomed to playing with an offensively limited frontcourt (Taj Gibson, Jarred Vanderbilt), so I'm not overly concerned about Gobert being in town. He should still be able to collect at least two stocks and be the best-shooting big man in the league. Forty-one percent from beyond the arc last year and 40% for this career, just sayin'.

1.11 James Harden - PG/SG, Philadelphia 76ers (Original Pick, No. 8)

My previous take had Harden "squarely in the top-10" conversation, but from what I've seen in the preseason, Harden is closer to last year's version than the Harden of old. Still, he's a first-round player for his cross-categorical contributions.

Original take: Harden's decision to make less and return to Philly on a two-year deal shows he's ready to ball. The hamstring injury that's plagued him for two seasons is behind him, and he's reportedly in great shape heading into this season. He was the only player in the NBA to post over 20+ points and 10+ assists per game in '21-'22 and finished 15th on a per-game basis despite changing teams mid-season and playing on a bum leg. A bounce-back should put him squarely in the top 10 in fantasy basketball.

1.12 LaMelo Ball - PG/SG, Charlotte Hornets (Original Pick: No. 9)

A sprained ankle will cost the dynamic point guard the first couple of weeks of the regular season. He's moving down a few spots merely because of the injury. He should still be in line for another standout, All-Star-level season.

Original take: LaMelo Ball enters his third NBA season looking to build off career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, threes made, and FT%. He's also among the league leaders in steals. The loss of Miles Bridges might decrease his passing numbers after accounting for 23% of Ball's assists in '21-'22, but there's still plenty of opportunity to see a 30% usage while filling up the box score alongside Terry Rozier.

2.01 Devin Booker - SG/SF, Phoenix Suns

The Suns seem like they're going through it, but I don't think it'll have much bearing on Devin Booker's production this season. He's in his prime and an improved playmaker who's also a walking bucket.

2.02 Kyrie Irving - PG/SG, Brooklyn Nets

He'll play more than 29 games this year, and the Nets new "big 3" looked great in Wednesday's matchup versus the Bucks. Uncle Drew will get his, scoring-wise, but there's still upside in him as a distributor and rebounder at the position. His high efficiency and sneaky steals make him an early second-round pick in my book.

2.03 1.15 Trae Young - PG, Atlanta Hawks (Original Pick. No. 12)

My suspicions are trending in the right direction, as Trae Young's assists were not what we've come to expect in latest years. Granted, it's the preseason, but I think Dejounte Murray will continue to eat into his assists despite being one of the best scorers in the league.

[Try Yahoo Fantasy Plus for free to get premium basketball tools]

Original take: Trae Young has a new backcourt mate in All-Star G Dejounte Murray, but he should still be one of the best fantasy guards this upcoming season. He's a volume scorer who ranked fourth in usage rate last year at 34.4. I expect Hawks head coach Nate McMillan to stagger Young and Murray's minutes at the point but also deliver Young the chance to work more off-ball to create better looks on the perimeter. He should still boast substantial fantasy numbers without much offense around him and Murray.

2.04 Kawhi Leonard - SG/SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

While this may seem high for a player coming off of injury, Kawhi is one of the best two-way players in fantasy while sporting elite shooting percentages. Paul George admitted that Kawhi is the alpha for the Clippers, and despite being load managed at times, he's one of the best on a per-game basis in fantasy basketball.

2.05 Dejounte Murray - PG/SG, Atlanta Hawks

He might be better than Trae Young in fantasy this season. I'm here for another monster season, live from the A.

2.06 Anthony Davis - PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers

Will he play center or not? Not sure that it matters much for fantasy considering he just needs to STAY HEALTHY. Davis was a top-12 player on a per-game basis last season before getting injured so going back to the well. He's too talented to go beyond the first 18 picks.

A healthy Anthony Davis is a huge difference maker. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)

2.07 Paul George - SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

The run on perennial All-Stars continues. George is the second option of arguably the best roster in the Western Conference. He might take games off here and there, but PG, similar to Kawhi Leonard, is an exceptional two-way player. If he can cut down on his turnovers and Excellerate his shooting from the field, he could return to first-round value this year.

2.08 LeBron James - SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

The King is back and ready to make yet another run for a title. It helps that his teammates are healthy, and while his scoring will likely take a dip, he's one of a handful of players capable of a triple-double every night.

2.09 Anthony Edwards - SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

You'll likely have to pay up for Ant-man, but he is undoubtedly in breakout territory. He's well-positioned to make the jump into an All-Star this year. He's a great source of points, steals, threes and his athleticism makes him a solid rebounder and blocker at his position.

2.10 Domantas Sabonis - PF/C, Sacramento Kings

Drafting a player from the Sacramento Kings this early may feel gross, but Sabonis is one of fantasy basketball's most versatile big men. He won't do a ton defensively, but he'll be a reliable source of points, rebounds, assists and FG% as a second-round pick.

2.11 Fred VanVleet - PG/SG, Toronto Raptors

Minimal competition in the backcourt, plus he'll likely be top five in minutes played. He's a perfect selection when punting field-goal percentage (pair with Luka Doncic, perhaps?) but also will be among the league leaders in threes, steals and FT percentage.

2.12 Bam Adebayo - PF/C, Miami Heat

His assists are down since Kyle Lowry arrived, but he's attempting more threes in the preseason than he has in his career. He is a nice grab here for his defensive stats and double-double potential.

3.01 Donovan Mitchell - PG/SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

Mitchell finished in the top 30 in per-game value last season and top 50 the year prior. The Cavs are deep, but he'll be the primary scorer on one of the most fantasy-friendly teams in the league. I'm expecting his points to dip, but he'll still be one of the better guards of fantasy.

3.02 Cade Cunningham - PG/SG, Detroit Pistons

One of my breakouts, so grabbing him as an early third-round pick is the way to go.

3.03 Pascal Siakam - PF/C, Toronto Raptors

Siakam is a stat stuffer who will finish in the top five in minutes played. He's an ideal fit for any fantasy managers interested in punting blocks, rebounds, and FG%.

3.04 Rudy Gobert - C, Minnesota Timberwolves

3.05 DeMar DeRozan - SF/PF, Chicago Bulls

3.06 Ja Morant - PG, Memphis Grizzlies

3.07 Darius Garland - PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

He's got the sauce, plus he's an exceptional passer and facilitator who can score at will. He and Donovan Mitchell can thrive together and should make for one heck of a dynamic duo in fantasy. I'm still expecting him to be one of the top distributors but provide points, threes, steals and an elite FT percentage in category leagues.

3.08 Chris Paul - PG, Phoenix Suns

3.09 Jimmy Butler - SF/PF, Miami Heat

3.10 Bradley Beal - SG, Washington Wizards

3.11 Nikola Vucevic - C, Chicago Bulls

3.12 Zion Williamson - PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Zion tweaked his ankle in his last preseason game, but Pelicans HC Willie Green and Zion both said that "he's doing fine." I'm confident he is still worthy of being selected in the first three rounds.
