    Caldwell Poop has crapped on so many of my rosters over the years that i could not possibly be more tilted over his performance tonight.

    And everytime i fade AD he goes for 55+ i swear to god

    Got some late night hammers going with Jamal Murray and Lonzo Ball

    Feel decent about min cashing, only grenades today were Ben McLemore and Clint Capela. That rockets game was pitiful, if they are going to keep doubling Harden to make the rest of the team shoot, it’s going to be tough sledding going forward.

    The Rockets are dead in the water. Westbrook was completely washed up last year, no idea why they would swap CP3 for him. That move was absolutely egregious. You couldn’t find a worse fit with Harden.

    Even in his prime Westbrook was one of the worst off the ball players in the league. He’s just totally clueless out there. Not only does he not know WHERE to stand he doesn’t even know HOW to stand. Hint: Bent over at the waist with both hands on your butt isn’t it.

    I have always liked WB. I have to agree with most of what you say. WB just doesn’t shoot well enough. This is a 3 point dominate league and his game doesn’t take advantage of it. I’m not seeing a poor relationship with Harden. I think they can make it work. The rockets still are dangerous. I doubt many teams will look forward to playing them. Maybe I’m wrong.

    348.75 wins it, so far. I really liked James and Klaw too, damn, wish I wouldn’t have pivoted to Greak

      RG Overall Ranking

    Last two plays dropped me from $2k to $200 in this DK showdown
    I think I missed the big one as I entered a bit late? This one had $10k to first
    If KCP hits that 3pointer probably I get first….

    I think this Christmas slate shows how impossible it is to win decent money 99% of the time in gpps if you’re only going to play a smaller group of lineups. Every game has had some very odd performances, both good and bad. Hard to get them all right, and that’s what has to happen to have a top-5 finish in a gpp, which is where the only significant money even is. Josh Hart going off this game…..like Kuzma did. And once, again D Lee wins the slate which is well beyond ridiculous. Meanwhile so many busts like Harrell, Brow, Capela, Tucker, Lou, Ibaka….list goes on and on. Good luck nailing it all down as that’s what it takes usually. If cash games made any sense at all I’d look to that route…

    I mean, some of the best plays in this game are Hart, Beasley and Etwaun Moore. Just gets ridiculous.

    I only played because there was no NHL today. single bullet 386.8 on FD

    The only thing you can do about this slate is just laugh and have another cocktail. Draymond, WCS, Lee, Theis and House are in the Winning LU together. I mean I would never have so much trash in a LU and its worth a million bucks?

  • tmarohl

    Lonzo Ball is such trash.

  • FunchessOfFun

    Lonzo Ball is literally out here just runnin. No stats, just runnin.

    Agreed on Ball….Optimizers just loved him so I put him in a couple and it never feels right. Watching the game is just painful when taking him, simply a terrible shooter and doesn’t seem to have much of a place on the team.

  • TheWeeIceMan

    Murray is just laying a big steaming pile out there.

  • chronoxiong

    Lonzo Ball sucks as much as I have sucked in DFS for the past few months. No clue why anyone would roster him. I will laugh out loud if a stupid optimizer or lineup builder recommended me to play him. Get out of here with that shit.

    I have 3 teams so I imagine there at least 5k more? Haha probably 5-10 bucks if I had to guess.

    Reading twitter and the internet, and some of these message boards I am noticing that people are way to over-reactionary based on one game sample sizes. “Giannis now sucks because he had one bad game”, “Bucks have no shot at winning the Eastern Conference” “”(player-popup #james-harden)James Harden”:/players/james-harden-1037 sucks because he can’t beat the Warriors”

    You get all of these people who watch basketball one day a year commenting. I mean, I guess when the Bucks blew the Clippers out of the water two weeks ago by worse than the Bucks lost to the Sixers today didn’t matter. Or when they beat the Lakers last week.

    People need to realize that people have bad games, bad weeks, but in the end, stuff typically reverts back to the mean.

    Am I worried about the Sixers in a 7 game playoff matchup? Yes, because you have two very talented teams. However, for the Sixers to beat the Bucks, they would need to have at least four shooting games like they had today, and the Bucks would have to play as bad as they did today in those same four games.

    We don’t know what moves teams will make yet. How injuries will effect teams, etc. For my money, the Clippers have the best chance of winning the NBA championship if I had to wager on it today, because they are the least flawed team in the league.
