    Damn, DK is smart enough to proactively price Roby up on a B2B? Also I kinda like that guard pricing!

    Who is the replacement?

    It wont matter. No big time players want to play in MN and freeze all season. You need to get super lucky and somehow land a Giannis type. Edwards and Towns isn’t it. Edwards is Wiggins 2.0 and the Timberwolves will still be losing for the next decade. Coaches dont matter nearly as much a ppl think.

    I have no problem with the top end, there is just nothing at the midlevel.

    For the record, it is colder in Minneapolis than Milwaukee :)

    You been losing a ton of money too?

    For me, I made three lineups and thank god I did. My main lineup sucked the life out of my bankroll. This was my main lineup in the Dribbler: https://www.fanduel.com/games/54905/contests/54905-244297930/entries/2387823748/scoring

    That lineup is proof that you should never ever double punt both PG spots. I regret that dearly. And Plumlee was the other reason why that lineup failed. You had 4 Centers who went off and I picked the wrong one. Just my stupid luck.

    My two alternate lineups cashed though. I put the best one here: https://www.fanduel.com/games/54905/contests/54905-244297947/entries/2388983779/scoring

    And you see, I didn’t double punt PG. Had at least Murray. And had Allen who I knew was going to crush. I just didn’t put him in my main lineup. All bad. I lost $10 tonight. Only won back $1.40 :(

    Some nights I win, some nights I lose. Just haven’t hit anything decent in awhile. I play GPP’s pretty much exclusively, so I build to either place high, or tank. If I wanted to build lineups to just cash, it would not be hard to do.

    So, inquiring minds want to know, what is Brendan up to right now?

    Oh ok. Yeah thats a good mindset. Right now I’m trying to come up with big time lineups too. Not for minimum GPP cash. I haven’t played a cash game for a few days too. Sick of that cash games have come to. Honestly have no clue if I will ever go on a hot streak again. This shit been too much to predict.

    Don’t need a hot streak. Need one hit.

    I created the optimal twice in the same week. Tell me the odds of that. Still chasing that heater like Brendans chasing his wife.

    Did you play it?

    Captain – do you still think the Nets suck? I really don’t see how any of the other currently configured teams in the NBA can compete with them.

    What a wild ride. I’ve played moklovin and srn three days in a row for 30k 3-man. Won two and the one I lost was because rolo became a thing out of nowhere. More importantly, they NEVER have the same lineup and very clearly are covering their bases. For instance today, in 10k3man showdown they had
    Brown
    Zion
    Jaxon
    Kemba
    Tatum
    Hernan

    And same but swap Zion/brown at capt

    I had lonzo cpt
    Brown
    Tatum
    Willy
    Zion
    Nesmith

    I actually like knowing they’ll have a different lineup but the fact that they’re blatantly “cheating” and DK doesn’t care rubs me the wrong way. Especially because I own a ton of DK stock.

    Shit like this could derail DK which is essentially a money printing operation and I hope they address it.

  • tmarohl

    Dray just plain out sucks, don’t care what 866 thinks about him. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/30938089/golden-state-warriors-draymond-green-crossed-line-late-ejection-steve-kerr-says

    I think they are very bad, yes (or relative to how they are perceived). Bad defenses don’t hold up in series against disciplined teams and good coaches. Ultimately, NBA champions usually have those components.

    I just see them rolling through the West without KD, and wondering, who is going to stop them.

    Well, by my count you made about 250K in the last month. Plus, she said yes, so you are a big winner in my book!

    I pivoted off of him to Fournier, this was a mistake

    I played Middleton and Trae and still didn’t cash. I hate a few landmines. On tomorrow. I pivoted from Halliburton to Buddy. Someone slap me.
