Fantasy Basketball: Friday Free-for-All

It's such a nice day out in New York today - a refreshing day we needed with all the snow we've gotten this winter. The weather has put me in a refreshing mood; for the first Free-for-all Friday, let's talk about keepers, a nice refreshing topic as we draw close to the season's mid-point.

This was my most daunting task: Create the top 30 keepers at each position for the next 3-4 seasons, especially since certain positions are so deep (PF, PG) while others get shallow fast (C, SG). It was a challenge I welcomed with open arms. I had to take the player's primary position even though you'll see players on the PF list that have been playing a lot of Center this season. It's easier to group this way. I'm sure I missed some players, and I cut an awful lot of players out of the top 30. Here you'll see fading stars fall on the list and young players rising. Let me know in the comments if you disagree with any of the lists below, or if I omitted anyone by mistake. Please keep in mind, I tried to incorporate the short-term.
