“Really it’s one of the more interesting cases I think I’ve ever seen. I think I’ve been doing this for like 18 years, and I don’t recall a situation where there was this much drama and injury intrigue and anger and betrayal and just weirdness in a situation like this — with basically the league’s best player. It’s crazy.”

That's Steve Alexander talking about the Anthony Davis saga on the latest Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, in which we sit down (along with Tommy Beer) to go through a wide range of fantasy hoops predictions from the Rotoworld hoops crew (with contributions from Ryan Knaus, Raphielle Johnson, David Leggieri and Jonas Nader). Among the topics we hit:

*A surprisingly optimistic outlook for AD in New Orleans;

*And a far more pessimistic one (plus, what to aim for if you're thinking about trading him right now);

*Also: the outlook for LeBron James as the Lakers try to make a charge toward a playoff spot;

*And what to expect from Jonathan Isaac, Jonas Valanciunas, Mitchell Robinson and yes — Marquese Chriss — down the stretch.
