    Cool, thanks…yea, I mean on FD since you can only go 2 SF, I gotta make a decision. Either Lebron/Osman, Butler/Osman, or Lebron/Butler…but then its going to be hard to fit Blake in, and a couple others I want.

    So, my biggest question of the day is, Lebron or Butler? I can try to plug both in with some value plays, but I have a feeling its not going to work, so I’m going to be left choosing between Lebron and Butler. I would go Butler, especially considering how Lebron has been lately, I just dont know if he will go ham this game or not. Thats what I’m struggling with now lol.

    I’m likely going to have LeBron and Prince in most of my lineups. They’re two of my favorite plays so far.

    DvP indicates a team defense has trouble defending a position (or a style of offense) often having less to do with specific 1 on 1 match ups. I absolutely watch games. The position where the 1 on 1 match up has the most relevance is at C where despite the way the game is changing more often than not those 2 players are facing each other in the post on offense and batteling each other for boards Outside that, only the most basic of offenses (one which ran no screens, curls, or cuts at all and focused primarily on ISO plays starting outside the 3 point line) facing the most basic of man defenses (one in which there was no weak side help D, traps, or switches) would result in a man defense matching up 100% of the time with the designated defender.

    EDIT: Not saying CHI wings aren’t in play. MIN does appear to give it up from 3, but MIN can also lock down wings when necessary.

    I understand that I’m just saying for tonight Jimmy will be guarding their best wing, Holiday who usually almost acts like a PG and runs the plays. Someone else said Grant and Jimmy and that just angered me lol.

    This is not accurate at all. Lavine is 10x better than Holiday is, and with Lavine back, Holiday doesn’t do anything other than stand in the corner and shoot threes

    been in meetings all day and finally get on to see people talking about Butler guarding Lauri, what???? in what world??

  • thesauc0

    i’ve played de aaron fox a lot lately, hit or miss, what you guys think for tonight?

    Ah. Yes, Butler might get switched onto Grant but no way that is his primary assignment. Is Holiday their best wing? Since LaVine has come back, he appears their #1 back court option.

    I feel like I should play LeBron, but I really love my CP3, Jrue, Blake core
    Ugh

    Yup. 3 DK late night L/U’s, all have Dame. I play the small stakes so you can take that with a grain of salt

    Lavine is brick city and once again watch the games. Lavine does not run the floor. He’s a perimeter “threat” with some good lane driving capabilities.

    I’m trying to figure out value plays but right now I’m leaning butler/bron/Blake
    Embiid news is critical
    If he’s out Ben and Dario would be locks and probably have to run it back with jrue and AD

  • heyjude1979

    That’s the one thing that’s keeping me off Lavine tonight. You know Butler is going to motivated for this game in Chicage. And they just lost a close one to Cleveland.

    Zach lavine leads the team in average seconds per touch the last 5 games and has had more touches then Justin Holiday.

    Is no one taking Calderon? For $3200 on DK? Shouldn’t he STUMBLE upon 7x with a very possessible 10x ceiling?

    Don’t let the Kings and Clippers defense cloud you vision. Not saying Lavine is a bad play tonight. I’ll have him but to say he’s better than Holiday is laughable.

    Well ok Butler will guard Lavine. Holiday chalk on wiggins Defense. Zach is an easy fade.
