    Super early, but I’ll be looking at a Toronto stack. Pelicans are playing extremely fast and giving up a ton of points. Probably ends up in a blowout, but guys like Ibaka and FVV are too cheap.

    The question is how many of the big 3 ( lebron Ad or kawhi) do you take.? If the Pelicans go small and have Ingram at the 4 Siakam Gasol and Ibaka will destroy them.

    I think stacking Raptors with some LAC/LAL pieces in general is the obvious build. Obviously which pieces is what will set the winners from the losers apart.

    Pretty certain at least one of, but not more than 2 of Powell, OG, or Stanley Johnson will be on the winning line up.

  • ripking

    OG was on fire in that last pre-season game. It’s tough to fit more than 1 of those high priced studs in there and get a decent lineup. Does AD have the highest upside? I think Lebron will mostly defer this season to his team, and Kawaii is the x-factor, could get you 35 or 60. So who do we play?

    I lean AD and Kawhi with Lou. On DK it’s not hard to get LBJ, AD, and Kawhi while still leaving upside in your line up. There’s some legit rotation pieces 4K and under in strong spots.

    How much time do you think these rotational pieces. Using AD kawhi and Lebron on Dk in essence means you have to use 4 bench players. I dont think that strategy will be very wise

    Currently going into Tuesday with 7 entries won through satellite contests. Excited to hopefully start the season on the right foot!

  • chrisbanas

    I think OG is the play for the night. Any love for okafor? Man seems to eat and is priced near minimum on fanduel

    20+ minutes on average once you put them all together, maybe more. Never said it’d be wise or work, but there’s upside in those pieces. We’re looking at a 2-game slate while trying to win a GPP.

    By the way, you can do it and still play all starters, depending on the Lakers starting line up.

    I finally get to play NBA my favorite sport. I like don’t do MLB (and it’s too hard too, don’t even know all the players or have the time) so pretty much did nothing on week days (since NFL and golf are like once a week). NBA is pretty time consuming but I have it so I can do it pretty efficiently.

    Do you mean Kyle’s new best buddy as one of those pieces?

    Ah it was a GoZ reference. Norman Powell, but he won’t start I guess so not sure he’s actually that good of a pick if he’s gonna play 18 mins. OG and Pascal get like no lines in GoZ, but Norman has gotten so many lines.

    Ah, alright. I know of GoZ, but I’ve never seen it unless when TNT showed a clip or something. I don’t hate Powell either. It wouldn’t be surprising to me if TOR ran away with that game a bit and Powell, or Stanley (who I’m guessing as of now is in the rotation for 10-15 minutes) get a couple extra at the end of the game. Depending on how the slate breaks, a couple cheap guys on DK getting 18-20 DK points has a good chance still of making the winning line up…which reminds me I’ve been meaning to look at the opening night winning line up the last few years.

    Yea Norman’s role on GoZ is actually kinda big. If they still cover the Raptors this year, I think they will write some parody where they have some bromance between him and Kyle and maybe give Pascal some more lines.

    GoZ actually has never done a Denver Nuggets one, so they should be doing one this season for them. Probably be like Joker and his crew of men (like in the movies) which are the Nuggets role players. Also don’t really recall a big Utah Jazz one either (except the Mitchell individual RoY one), so hopefully they give Mitchell/Ingles/Gobert a few more lines.

    And obviously they will have one of LeBron and AD flirting and colluding like they did last season.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    I am very excited for this. I already apologized to my girlfriend. I wish the first slate wasn’t just 2 games, because I’m gonna have way more $$ in play than I should.

    I think I’ll be heavy on the NOR/TOR game. No Zion and TOR should put up a ton of points. I’ll probably avoid the Lakers aside from LBJ and AD and maybe some Javale.

    Signs point to Dwight, yet that’s not definite. Nice price at 4500 on DK. I’ll fade him in some, “what if he gets injured or into foul trouble type lineups.” Otherwise 🔒 city 4 me.

    If that toronto game turns into a blowout okafor will EAT like the big dog that he is

  • monarch

    Jah is a great play at 3400. SGA cousin is probably blowout proof and he is from Toronto which doesn’t hurt.
