    Is Trae slow or is that extra 10 seconds not enough?

    Nah, he seemed to just be taking his time to me.

  • superjon

    Never mind. He’s jus slow.

  • deadphish

    yeah BUDDY!

  • captainwacky

    I hope buddy pulled Booker in after the finish and whispered “you shouldn’t have even been here.”

    Adam Silver says Daryl Morey’s China tweet will cost NBA hundreds of millions of dollars

    Yep, that’s real $$$, but that’s the price you pay when your China’s bitch and everyone does not tow the commie party line.

    The World Health Org finally realized their weeks of ass kissing of winne the poo over coronavirus has lead to the literal death of WHO members in China.

    Good to see them finally speak truth to commie power of coronavirus lies

    Anyone got a good feel for this one tonight? Rotations, minute projections, narratives?

    Narratives are AD and Butler tied to Chicago.

    Does Booker go nuts shooting threes?

    Will Luka and Trae play fewer minutes since they they were captains on Friday?

    I usually fade the bigs but Embiid helped me last year

    I’m on AD and LeBron here. Booker probably steps into that Dame role for LeBron so I’m big on him. I’ve got my player pool pretty concise just have to get the correct captain.

    Under 306 on ASG looks good, agree?

    Hard to tell with this new format. Last year it was 178 – 164 which was 342 total. It was 263 after three quarters. To win the 4th quarter, team in the lead needs to score 24, and losing team needs to score 24 plus the difference in the first three quarters. Let’s say one team is down by 10 or so going into the 4th quarter. They may decide to clamp down and actually play defense. You could end up with something like a 34 – 23 quarter in the 4th which would put you over significantly.

    If the game is really close after three quarters and they are sitting at 263, you could get a 24-20 final quarter which would still put you at the over. 24-19 Q would be a push. You would have to hope for a 24-18 Q or less, if scoring in the first three quarters similar to last year.

    Personally, I would go with the over.

    Some Narratives I am looking at.

    1) Kobe – Have to really think that LA guys want this trophy to go back to LA, since MVP trophy just renamed for Kobe. League may want this too. Look for guys like Lebron and AD to try really hard to bring it home.

    2) Chicago – Two Chicago guys – AD and Butler in the game. Look for them to go all out.

    3) Nick Nurse is the coach for the East. Look for guys like Siakim and Lowry maybe to get a minute or two more than they normally would if someone else is coaching.

    4) You still got guys, especially on Lebron’s team, that tend to be kind of selfish in all star games – I am looking at you Westbrook

    Basically, I am going to use guys like Giannis, AD, Lebron in my captains spot.

    So the 4th qtr is only gonna be like 4-5 mins long?

    Maybe. However, I think it will be much longer, because if the game is close, you may actually see some defense.

    Maybe i dont really see much defense still. Maybe a little more contested shots but dont see it going past 6 mins

    I would think the bench only gets like 4 mins the 2nd half. You would think the starters just start the 4th qtr right?

    I think starters and closers are not necessarily the same. Each team can go a little smaller with additional shooting simply by subbing out one player. LeBron is going to want guys like Lillard (injured), Booker and Tatum on the floor with him to space things out a bit. I could see Kawhi playing less minutes again

    I haven’t actually dug in or looked at anything yet. Just thinking outloud. Gonna start trying to figure out mins in a couple hours

    I don’t think there will be much defense through the first three quarters. However, if the game is pretty close with that 4th quarter setup, I could see some really intense defense being played in that last quarter.

    I’m figuring starters play the first 8 minutes of Q1. Reserves get last 4 minutes and first four minutes of Q2. Starters get the last 8 minutes of Q2 Starters probably get first 6 minutes of Q3, Reserves probably get last 6 minutes of Q3. Starters probably get all the minutes in Q4, with the exception of maybe some specialists coming in for shooting or something.

    Starters = 22 Minutes plus 4th quarter
    Reserves = 14 minutes plus maybe a minute or two in the 4th depending on if their skills are needed.
