    I thought it’d be nice if we could list all of the “musts” in NBA. Such as, always play Wall at home or always play SG’s against Harden. Things that we should all know and keep in mind at all times. Could be a good place for newbies to start also.

    I know there are so many i forget and this could be a great primer before selecting your player pool every day.

    My first one is from tonight

    1. Always and only play Melo on a nationally televised game.

    2. Marcus Thornton hates Brooklyn, always play him against them

    3. On a large slate avoid all players in a game where the Spurs are playing at home and are double digit favorites.

    4. The 3 Laws of Bad Defense:
    Always take point guards vs. the Lakers
    Always take point guards vs. Portland
    Always take big men vs. Denver

    5. Always use Anthony Davis at home where his official scorer will credit him with blocked shots even if he’s on the bench.
    This is kind of joking but pretty truthful, home scorer seems to pad his stats.

    6. Thou shall not fade Westbrook when Durant is out.

    7. Don’t even think about making lineups until 6:15.

    8. Always play james harden after a dud.

    Thou shall not follow gut feelings, or superstitions, uncle vetos picks! Thou must only trust the data! And always, always blame some sort of flukey event or others for your losses!

    Knowing the buying temperature of the player you’re picking. You want the guy who is getting minutes and playing well, but not necessarily the guy who just played 40+ minutes and hit 8x his salary in his last game. You’re looking for the guys who are primed to hit their ceiling in the game you pick them.

    Indicators I look for are when their last 5-10 games average is above their season average, and then their last game is above both of those, but not necessarily the player’s ceiling. Those indicators combined with a good DvP matchup and/or high paced game will lead to the highest upside picks.

    Apparently Terrence Jones and Dwight Howard missed the memo about Denver.

    Thou shalt not roster players coached by Jason Kidd in a late start game, and then fall asleep prior to tip-off of said late game. Late swap on DK doesn’t do you much good when you are snoring on the couch!

    Don’t draft any players on the away team traveling to LA… http://m.tmz.com/#article/2015/12/16/milwaukee-bucks-strip-club-lakers/

    Don’t recreate your entire lineup just because a surprise value play is announced late that doesn’t affect any of your players

  • walkoff9

    Play Brandon Bass vs the kings

  • Myballzachertz

    One game fluke he will be back to irrelevant next game. Thou shall not play Lakers is mine. Seriously they are horrible. Lou Will could drop 50 fpts one night and drop 20 the next. Too many mediocre players splitting minutes for my liking.

    New Commandment: Ryan Anderson is always a sneaky GPP option who will go for 38-45 when the glass breaks

  • jeffgo33

    Always play CP3 if Blake is out.

    Always play Harden if Howard is out

    Always play Kemba if Batum is out (Lamb too)

    Thou shall never play Anthony Davis

    Yup.

  • chronoxiong

    Never ever and I mean eeeeevvvvvvveeeerrrrrrrrrr, punt both PG spots. Every single time I have done that, I am asking to donate money in whatever game I’m in! Whether it’s for cash or gpps. It’s frustrating! You need guaranteed points from that position. Don’t try to rely on backup scrubs like Emmanuel Mudiay, Shelvin Mack, Ramon Sessions, and whoever the hell I’m forgetting right now!

    8. Hosts pretty much give you every player on every roster so they are always right.

    This always makes me laugh when I listen to a show on Sirius where they mention like 30+ guys they like for a given night and then the following day open up their show with clips of them talking about the 2-3 guys that go off. No one ever mentions the 10 or so guys that completely busted and if you listen to the beginning of the show everyday it sounds like they are nailing guys every single day when really hey just make sure to mention almost everyone so they are bound to talk about all of the best plays at some point.

    Those shows are such a waste of time.

    Trust your gut.

    Don’t adjust your lineups simply based on the last thing you just heard even from an expert. If you made an earlier decision you probably had a good reason. Make sure your reason for changing is just as good. In a minute there is time for decisions and revisions that a minute will reverse — TS Eliot (I assume he was playing DFS when he wrote that).

    Don’t fear the big name players in single entry.
