Fantasy Friday: Fantasy Basketball Dream Team 2013-14

The dream is almost over.

You're either winning your fantasy basketball league next week or you're not.

If you have two or more players on our Fantasy Basketball Dream here, well, your chances are looking pretty good.

Without further ado, here are the best fantasy players of the 2013-14 NBA season.

ANTHONY DAVIS, PELICANS C-PF

If fantasy basketball gave out a Defensive Player of the Year award, Davis would probably turn into an annual winner, especially after tallying 189 blocks (3rd in the NBA), 89 steals, 466 defensive rebounds and 673 total rebounds (16th) this season. Davis was also effective on offense, averaging 20.8 points on .519 field goal percentage (20th). Davis' average draft position in ESPN fantasy leagues was 21st at the start of the season.

DEMARCUS COUSINS, KINGS C-PF

The 23-year-old King became a 20-10 man for the first time in his four-year NBA career by grabbing 804 rebounds (ranking 6th) and scoring 1547 points (13th) this season. Cousins' 106 steals (19th) shows last season's 108 thefts was no fluke. Cousins' average draft position was 31st at the start of the season.

KEVIN LOVE, TIMBERWOLVES PF-C

Love takes his 20-10 role to a high level as a 26-13 man, totaling 928 rebounds (3rd), 1908 points (4th), not to mention nailing 180 3s (9th) as the rare rebounding stretch 4. Love's average draft position was 7th at the start of the season.

LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE, TRAIL BLAZERS PF-C

L.A. is one of the NBA's five 20-10 men with the 23-11 Aldridge tallying 745 rebounds (9th in the NBA) and 1559 points (12th) this season. Aldridge's average draft position was 17th at the start of the season.

BLAKE GRIFFIN, CLIPPERS, PF

Griffin--one of two NBA players with career 20-10 averages (Tim Duncan is the other)--had his 24-10 year, stocked with 1879 points (5th in the NBA) and 748 rebounds (8th). Griffin's average draft position was 27th at the start of the season.

DIRK NOWITZKI, MAVERICKS PF,

You can only help your 21.6 points per game average--and 1663 point total (10th in NBA)--when you also boast a league-leading .901 free throw percentage as well. Nowitzki's average draft position was 20th at the start of the season

LEBRON JAMES, HEAT SF-PF

He scores (2026 points for 3rd in the NBA), does it efficiently (.569 field goal percentage for 4th), playmakes ( 483 assists for 9th) and creates havoc on D (120 steals for 12th). James' average draft position was 1.6 at the start of the season.

CARMELO ANTHONY, KNICKS SF-PF

Melo can beat you with 3s, 2s and 1s, tallying 165 three-pointers (16th in NBA), 2065 points (2nd) and a .847 free throw percentage (20th). Anthony's average draft position was 9th at the start of the season

KEVIN DURANT, THUNDER SF

KD is a scoring machine--2461 points (1st in NBA), .875 free throw percentage (6th) and 186 3s (7th)--who can also create for others at times ( 427 assists for 17th). Durant's average draft position was 1.5 at the start of the season.

PAUL GEORGE, PACERS SF-SG

PG's number may be in late-season decline, but he still ranks amongst the season leaders with 149 steals (4th in NBA), .865 free throw percentage (8th), 176 3s (11th) and 1695 points (9th). George's average draft position was 10th at the start of the season.

JAMES HARDEN, ROCKETS SG,

Like Durant, Anthony and Stephen Curry, Harden can beat you with 3s, 2s and 1s, tallying 1769 points (6th in NBA), .865 free throw percentage (8th), 170 three-pointers (15th), while also ranking Top 20 in steals (106 for 19th) and assists (414 for 20th). Harden's average draft position was 4th at the start of the season.

STEPHEN CURRY, WARRIORS PG-SG,

Is there a better scoring playmaker than Curry, who has 241 3s (1st), 628 assists (4th), .878 free throw percentage (5th), 1740 points (7th), along with 115 steals (16th) to set up even more transition points and assists. Curry's average draft position was 5th at the start of the season.

JOHN WALL, WIZARDS PG

It is really nice to see Wall deliver on his fantasy potential with a league-leading 679 assists, 145 steals (5th in NBA) and 1539 points (14th). Wall's average draft position was 18th at the start of the season.

CHRIS PAUL, CLIPPERS PG

Paul missed 19 games, but he still makes this dream team because his totals still match up with the league's best, as demonstrated with 643 assists (3rd in NBA), 152 steals (3rd), .858 free throw percentage (14th). Paul's average draft position was 5th at the start of the season.

DAMIAN LILLARD, TRAIL BLAZERS, PG

Lillard's marathon minutes get him on this squad, just ahead of Goran Dragic and Kyrie Irving, who both played fewer games. It also didn't' hurt that Lillard ranked among the league leaders with 209 3s (2nd in NBA), .870 free throw percentage (7th), 1657 points (11th) and 444 assists (13th). Lillard's average draft position was 22nd at the start of the season.
