    For those of you that didn’t notice… when the game ended on DraftKings there was a guy (tjwebbee) who placed in 1st by himself for 250K, because of Gasol’s late 3 and then getting that extra rebound as time expired. After the scoring adjusted he ended up getting 89th place for $500 missing first by .75 points. If you’re out there dude I just want to say that I know it hurts but hey the only thing better than you winning 250K is having 88 guys win 6.5k. The money will hopefully do more good shared than one person winning it all… I still feel sick for you cuz I can imagine what you’re feeling. Not much else to say but get ‘em next time. That life changing money is winnable you just gotta earn it and/or get lucky.

    I mean if he was following the stats the entire time he shoulda known he was never really in 1st place so it’s not really a bad beat or anything. A bad beat is someone actually doing something useless in garbage time to overtake you.

    Like the entire time I was aware Ibaka was owed 1 more block and Kawhi 1 more block so you just add that to your scores live to find your true standings even if it’s not there presently.

    For people that say Boogie only got worse cause he got injured, he actually shot a HIGHER eFG% this year with the Warriors than ANY season with the Kings (where he was “supposedly” a top 15 player)

    Ofc he was never a top 15 player. Anytime you are the high usage number 1 option on a team your stats are overinflated. I mean if Steph was the only guy without anyone for his career his numbers would be better than Harden.

    But like any Boogie team as soon as he leaves the team gets better. Warriors should start playing like Bogut way more. Too bad Looney went down. Such an underrated loss. His defense was elite and his offensive rebounding was great and the Warriors mainly lost becsuse of defense (Klays value there too) today (they scored 109 just like game 2 win).

    JVG claimed the version of the Warriors tonight would’ve missed the playoffs had this been their team all season. I have to disagree.

    Curry, Dray, Boogie, Iguana, and the depth guys would’ve made the playoffs.

    Boogie a massive bust tonight. Had him as captain :(

    I was following and I felt so bad for the guy. A normal DFS player doesn’t get those chances often, and it’s not like he dropped from 1M to 100K, which is also a huge drop but you still win 100K. He dropped from 250K to $500. That’s terrible! There’s a good chance he never gets close again!

  • circusmatch

    Who did he have? Curry (1.5x), Kawhi, Danny Green, Lowry, Gasol, and Bogut?

    I would bet at least $1 that none of the Warriors scrubs show up in the winning LU on FD

    Pay up

  • emnj69

    pockets are heavy again-another easy bet won for this series. I predicted Toronto by 7 and they even beat my estimation-I though raptors would focus on shutting down curry but I guess they figured just let him go off as nobody else was going to do much….I have not done daily during the finals but betting has been glorious

    Remember that fan who shoved Lowry after he fell into the courtside seats chasing after a loose ball? Turns out he’s a minority owner of the team, which makes his boorish behavior even more cringe-worthy.
    https://deadspin.com/report-the-old-knob-who-shoved-kyle-lowry-is-warriors-1835298769
    The league and the team are reportedly investigating the incident.

    FYI, Warriors are now saying Looney could return during the Finals.

    Mark Stevens banned from the Finals.

    The Deadspin article points this out:

    And for some reason, one that probably begins with “access” and ends with “is poison,” none of the Warriors beat writers, who are most knowledgeable about the team and its owners, reported the news either. It’s hard to believe that the reporters who spend every day around this team didn’t recognize Stevens right away.

  • telestraightshooter

    Klay Thompson (left hamstring) will play in Game 4 on Friday, according to sources of Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.

    Only banned from finals?!?

    so a phyical attack is less than word attack?
    Donald Sterling is certifiable a$$hole & he had to sell the Clips?

    Have to disagree with that last take from the Deadspin article. It’s quite possible that the Warriors’ beat writers wouldn’t recognize Mark Stevens (or any of the other investors who own minority shares) if he didn’t spend time around the team during normal day-to-day activities. They would recognize Lacob and Guber for sure, because they’re involved with team operations.
    So to recap: Venture capitalist who owns share of Warriors shoves Lowry and tells him to go (bleep) himself, Warriors ban him from the rest of Finals, league threatens further punishment, LeBron inserts himself into the conversation and demands “swift action” with other players joining him in demanding justice, Lacob’s wife receives death threats from the Beyhive for having the audacity to invade Beyoncé’s space to talk to Jay-Z, Drake trolls Klay after Game 3 loss by posting photo of shirtless Klay surrounded by three young beauties, and now it’s rumored that Looney could return after being ruled out indefinitely.
    Best. Finals. Ever. and we’ve only made it through Game 3!
    LOL

    Agree that the Warriors should have done more. Imagine what that poor Knicks fan who was banned for life by Dolan for saying he should sell the team must be thinking!

    KD out for Game 4

    Yikes!

    Venture capitalist

    Oh, ok, lets add another layer to the bonfire!
    Assaulting a player who is like John Stockton, not Ron Artest.

    Race – sadly that’s the 1st thing some pairs of eyeballs see.

    Its an OWNER!?!? who gets slap on wrist by tin ear NBA.
    (again, some race conditioned people correlate OWNER w/slavery)

    LeBron Spartacus James, leading a player revolt.

    Capitalist swine venture CAPITALIST!

    Ohhh yeahhh

  • telestraightshooter

    Ok, I watched it and WAY overblown.
    A simple overly dramatic apology would do.

    Was that his wife’s seat Lowry plowed over?
    Lowery did initiate contact…;^)
    Heat of moment stuff at worse.

    @gaelicgirl said...

    KD out for Game 4

    Ummm yeah, about that.
    KD might be out some of next year too, which would really suck.

    KD was seen last night w/ ice pack on achilles, not calf.
    The same wrap Cousin had when he snapped his achillies.

    Considering the dubs report injuries in palyoffs like the NE Patriots….. its more likley than not

    Yikes!

    I have been politely trying to tell you all that KD is out for the year. This that he is improving and will come back at some point has been a smoke screen. There is no doubt in my mind that he has an Achilles Tendon injury.

    Just like Boogie, just before maxDeal qualified-FreeAgency.

    Will he pull off a Boogie move & sign for a vet minimum$?
    ;)

    Oh yeah, there were so many narratives to follow I forgot about that part! It looked to me like the capitalist swine’s wife (mistress, partner, or whatever) was the one standing who actually tried to swat the live ball back onto the court.
    So much privilege in such a small space…the horror.

    And I have been trying to politely ignore your doom-mongering, tmarohl!
    LOL
    Please cease and desist trying to crush my hopes and dreams…Lacob himself said he WILL be back.

  • emnj69

    I am 2-0 betting raptors and going to be betting again on them the next game-no kd and no way steph drops near 50 again-I know must win game for GS but line is too big

    You don’t need Durant to beat Toronto, as he will just be a shell of himself if he does see action, you need Klay!

    They’re good then!

    Wild horses couldn’t keep him off the court for Game 4. He looked so miserable last night, sitting there on the bench. I’m sure you noticed that they scored 109 points again with just Steph going supernova. Klay’s missing defense was the difference – and not having to chase Klay around for 2 miles probably contributed to Lowry and Green having such big games, too.

    Yeah, I haven’t been in any of these threads, but you have it correct in my mind as well— that’s a very hurt achilles, and I thought it was torn when it happened.
