    Fading Trae and Luka…..

  • monarch

    Brandon Clarke has appeal catching Luka lobs plus Sexton bricks. His game translates well to this format and he doesnt have to worry about J Val and JJJ needing their minutes.

    I’d probably lean CPT SGA with Clarke and then four non Trae US guys.

    Here is what I’m going with. All the higher min projected guys could be shaved down a couple and redistributed to lower projected guys but this is what i’m rolling with

    Team World

    Starters Mins
    PG Luka 25
    SG SGA 25
    SF Barrett 25
    PF Rui 19
    C Clarke 19

    Bench Mins
    NAW 20
    Svi 17
    Okogie 18
    Melli 16
    Wagner 16

    Team USA

    Starters Mins
    PG Morant 25
    SG Sexton 23
    SF Graham 23
    PF Zion 22
    C JJJ 16

    Bench Mins
    Young 25
    Nunn 21
    Bridges 15
    Washington 15
    Paschall 15

    Makes a lot of sense, other than I can’t get over Trae not starting and still getting big run. Unless he’s like, I’m in the ASG, let these other guys start, but I still want my minutes!!

    Yeah or he is like i dont want to be on the floor at the same time as these other ball hogs. Which i do think i remember 1 year the starting lineup being different than what was being shown in practice. I think he at least plays 20 mins. Unless he wants to get shown up by Luka his entire career

    He probably wants to get the best of him in the main all star game.

    I don’t think Luka does much here, he will probably defer to SGA and others in a more balanced offensive approach.

  • mbunner23

    I can see Doncic not playing as many minutes coming back from that injury, why risk it in a meaningless game. Also has to shoot in the 3 lot contest tomorrow and play in the big game Sunday. Could be wrong tho

    Yeah but i dont think either will be much of a factor in the main All-Star game

  • monarch

    Naw+Melli looks pretty good. I remember Bogdan went nuts off the bench in one of these. Butt ton of threes.

  • futoo

    Having the most trouble with what to do with Zion. I can’t imagine him getting more than ’15 minutes on a back to back coming off injury but if you gets 22 plus he’s probably gonna be needed

  • JSteele

    The B2B isn’t as much of a factor as say an injury. But he’s been back for awhile now and playing over 30 minutes a night, so i’d say he’s fine. It’s also his only event so i’m sure he’ll want to ball out.

    I dont know how Terrence David didnt make this team looking at some of the names.

    Impact player on the 3rd best team in the league. Shame

    He would be great for this game too flashy and shoots 3s

    Eh, probably could have made it over Paschall. If he was world team eligible he probably would have made it.

    Seen a few arguments on here about fading Trae and Luka and here’s why I’m going close to 100% on both (fewer than 10 lineups but still):
    This game is all about offense, and these are by far the two most offensively gifted players on the court. Arguably the best shooters, definitely best court vision and passing, and as the two biggest names I don’t really see them playing fewer than 20 minutes. They’re gonna set up teammates but aren’t scared to shoot it when open. I see something like 20-5-10 each (maybe fewer points for luka and more for trae).

    Also, looking through world roster i think SGA is an easy lock. probably my CPT

    You aren’t worried about them having too many events to play? Trae has Rising Stars, 3Pt and All Star-Game, Luka has both all star games and just came back from injury.

    Edit: I kind of like Luka here was fine in the final game before the break and played full minutes. He should play at least 20 minutes as a starter and being his 2nd year should get a bit of a boost in production.

  • MoccasinMusic

    I’m liking NAW. I say he hits 7 threes.

    @JSteele said...

    2nd year guys playing this year:

    Trae, Luka, SGA, JJJ, Okogie

    Good info

    50% of my dK prize winnings today will be heading your way!

    lol i’m gonna hold you to that. I didn’t include 2nd year players that didn’t play last year. But those are:

    Svi
    Wagner
    Bridges
    Graham
    Sexton

    I don’t think they see as much of a boost as it’s still their first time and don’t know what to expect.

    What the hell is wrong with Bleacher Report? I hope this isn’t their new format.

    Yes NAW will make or break me. Have close to 100% on DK and FD. And everyone else here likes him so he will be probably super chalky right? 30%? 50%?

    I don’t have any NAW, but I suck at this single-game format…I mean, even more than usual LOL

    I know you got Luka

  • choppadown

    I came off NAW, going SVI instead.

  • RipCityRings

    Is anyone else worried about the apparent talent disparity here? I feel like I have to play SGA almost everywhere because of how weak the World team is once you get past Doncic. SGA and NAW are basically the only guys that I want to play there, as the World team is full of guys on minutes limits and I want no part of RJ.
