    There will be chalk, AD should be at least 35% owned imo, maybe up to 50%+ in some, 75%+ in cash games. It’s just not the chalk you normally think of with cheap value plays.

    I like my cash lineup without AD right now.

    You sure about this? I presume you’re meaning defensive switching as pretty much all Bam’s FGAs are in the pain while Leonard is averaging 2.2 3PA a game and has historically been more a stretch 4.

    Leonard definitely does not play like a traditional C on offense, regardless of where he’s listed. I have only watched 1 Heat game all season (Heat Hawks was on National TV). Leonard usually spotted up for 3 or a jump shot 2 in that game while Bam was more down low. Leonard sometimes would go in the block but not really to do any postups, just for rebounding.

    On defense, I wasn’t paying attention as much so forgot who guarded Len and who guarded Collins. Regardless, for offensive purposes, Leonard is not a C. He’s a true stretch 4 who can block shots.

    Even with the Blazers, that’s how he usually played, even if he was the “biggest guy on the court.” He would be setting screens for Dame and spotting up for 3/long 2 and hustling for boards/rebounds. That’s how he made a huge impact last season vs. Warriors in playoffs with his energy and 3 point shooting.

    James Johnson had a great debut for Miami. Can he repeat?

    Right. What I suggested was that Leonard is a 4, not a 5 as suggested. Bam is the C and as such see Jokic D while he’s in the game.

    Regardless, they have been starting together. Box scores list Leonard as the C. He was introduced at C when they played the Bucks.

    Hello-
    Might jump into NBA streets early this year. Good night/slate to make my debut? I usually just do 5-8 game slates.
    I’ll hang up and listen


    Lol


    Shouldn’t be too much crazy news so jump on in

    Probably because he’s the tallest guy on the team and Heat maybe want to keep it more traditional.

    I’m sure almost everyone does. Dejounte Murray is killing DDR and LMA this season but the price is so good and it is a get right spot to control the pace

    The Bucks are a special situation, they don’t list a starting C rather 3 starting forwards, Lopez being one of them. Leonard typically spotted up at outside the 3 point line on offense though worked off the P&R as well and Leonard was covering Lopez at the perimeter with Bam in the middle typically guarding Giannis in the high post.

  • RipCityRings

    Anyone know if Fultz is starting again? SGA could terrorize him on D if so, though I’m worried about pace and the fact that almost no one goes off against Orlando.

    SGA and Brogdon are both getting expensive enough that tougher matchups have me questioning their value, but they’ve also both proven to be fairly matchup-proof this season.

    The Spurs are killing me, can’t play DDR because of Murray, can’t play Murray because of the minutes cap. Maybe it’s a pay-down at guard night…

    My point was basically that Leonard was not stealing minutes from Bam in that Houston game, because they start alongside each other, and that he didn’t get extended run because of the blowout. They both played the same minutes – 28 I believe.

    Oh yes, they play together, agree on that.

    Yeah, I was surprised POR kept Collins and let Leonard go

    So do you pick on Chris Paul and his D and play Fournier?

    Edit: I’m playing Dennis Schroder from this game on DK single LU.

    He’s a plus defender as well

  • superstars92

    Well, Markelle Fultz for his entire career had been the more promising prospect vs. SGA. It’s so sad to see him fall like this. Maybe he’ll pick it up again one day, learn to shoot a 10 footer+.

    Whoa, that’s devastating. Blazers season has been a train wreck so far aside from Dame and contract year Whiteside.

    Maybe we can kidnap Mirotic from Barcelona.

    Now that Phoenix might steal a playoff spot, that also hurts the Blazers. Ok, probably getting too ahead for Pheonix. Once Ayton and his terrible defense comes back, pretty sure Phoenix will be like 2-18 for a 20 game stretch.

  • lwilly

    Is it crazy to have a cash lineup without AD or Bron on FD? Feel like you need one or the other but all the value I’m liking comes in at PF and to a lesser degree, SF.

  • skankinmat

    Dwight Howard tonight? Bulls with some of the worst rebounding in the league..
