We analyze the 2016-2017 NBA schedule for fantasy basketball, identifying rest days for all 30 NBA teams.
There are two kinds of people who get excited when the NBA schedule gets released.
Those with a glimmer of hope that their small market team gets to play on Christmas day and those who want a schedule analysis so detailed, that it tells them the whereabouts of every player, on every day, in hopes that it'll improve their chances of finding the next big sleeper pick who will lead them to fantasy basketball glory.
Some may thing that's stalking, but I'm happy to meet you somewhere in the middle.
We've broken down the schedule to identify the rest days (full days in between games) for each team, and then we decided to present it in a nice little table below (because who doesn't like a well-formatted table?).
For those familiar with our advanced NBA schedule grid, it has been updated for the 2016-2017 NBA season. You can view it here.
