    Really? Lakers were winless in preseason, Warriors were undefeated. I attributed the Lakers being the favorite to LA market bias.

    Pre season means nothing.

    Really??? Who on Earth can possibly have Ben Simmons back on this???

    I’m in 2 fantasy leagues. One with all Philly/Jersey guys and one with a bunch of Phoenix and LA fans from my college days at Arizona State.

    Simmons went for $27 in that second league auction and most of the league was like “yeah, great pick! Philly really messed it up!”

    When I noticed that was their mood I started paying attention and a surprisingly high number of people think this is all due to a tire fire in Sixers management. Say what you will about Morey not pulling the trigger on a trade yet but the front office is in a hell of a lot better shape then even a year ago.

    Simmons is just a coward. Dude was treated amazingly well by everyone in this city and he can’t get over being booed one time. Just a clown.

    I had to cave and do a 3 max to get a KD LU.

    The money is gonna get lit on fire early this season bay-bay!

    LOL I just did a 3-max too, against my better judgment.

    Mark Price jersey…. check

    He helped usher in the Cremins era at Georgia Tech. Paved the way to Lethal Weapon 3. Although, my favorite and most accomplished Basket Alum is John Salley.

    Can we all agree the starters the Nets roll with are probably the ones we should focus on? Just based on Nash’s history? For example, if Millsap or LMA start, I don’t expect them to play 15 minutes. I fully expect 24 minutes from them.

    I respectfully disagree. Preseason gives teams a chance to try out different rotations to see what works best.

    Hol up …

    You think the Kyrie-less Nets go into the reigning NBA champions house and win “pretty easily”?

    I’m sure they can win. They are a very good team, but I would love to know what brought you to the “pretty easily” conclusion.

    Ring ceremony and Bucks missing guys.

    Off to the game. Have to be seated by 545 Central Time. Good luck everyone.

    While true I think it’s team dependent. The Lakers were always gonna be a roll out the ball and figure it out over 82 games type team. The Warriors have to figure out how many NBA players they have.

    Even the Sixers, all preseason that mattered was making sure Embiid was healthy (check!) and that Maxey didn’t look out of place with a lot of usage (check!) with a side helping of “is Niang a top 8 option?” (TBD)

    Bummer, but thanks for checking that. You’re right, we’re still missing several regulars…except that last guy!
    He’s highly irregular.

    If Millsap and Griffin start I have Griffin/LMA splitting the C mins and Millsap getting most of his mins at the 4 with JJ/KD soaking up the remaining PF mins

    Captain checked out towards the last 6 weeks of last season. The other guy stopped posting right around the playoffs.

    Exactly, trying to figure out what works/what doesn’t. What new guys are going to get minutes, etc. Records don’t mean much in pre season.

    If Dray is on a minutes limit, makes me kind of interested in Bjelica.

    All the belly for sure

  • chronoxiong

    So happy NBA is back. Although I dont profit anymore, its still fun to play. Curious to see how the multi position eligibility on FD will work. Hope it breaks up ties.

    BANNED, IIRC.

    Two totally different player pools between DK and FD

    On DK, 8 of my top 10 owned players are from the MIL/BKN game. I barely have any Blake, Harris or Porter on DK but am waaaaaay overweight on FD.

    On FD, 2 out of my top 3 owned players are Poole and RWB. Still very heavy on MIL/BKN but its a little more balanced with the pricing and the extra roster spot.

    Should be interesting to track over the course of the season.
