    LBJ is garbage. ill pass on him and harden. see you l8r. Big L’s for LBJ stacks. Sorry waste of money. Same with harden. Everyone has there off day. Its day 1 and the raptors want this there gonna go hard in the paint. Lowery, DeMar, Kyrie, Ibaka, Love.

  • mike42

    Beat writer in Tor said he is more or less certain that Jval starts and doesn’t like the matchup for JVal, just makes sense how rotations would work out.

    Strange, but D green and Roberson are similar players, both defensive minded, think guarding Harden helps your stats. Gets you in the game, lots of TO’s, fast breaks. Also, possible fout trouble but I read how they may go under screens and let Harden shoot 3’s just to avoid giving him freebies from the charity stripe. Think D green is an interesting sleeper, could have a game similar to one of Roberson’s, he gets less minutes but is also a much better offensive player as is 99.5% of the NBA compared to Roberson.

    Based on my predictions for the series which are that Spurs and Cavs sweep or win in 5, I’m locking in Kawhi, Aldridge and Lebron.

    People are seriously undeestimatjng the Spurs, I don’t get it. I’m predicting a Spurs-Cavs finals.

    What are chances JVal and Ibaka starting together?

    I agree. Green under performed against Memphis. I don’t think he gets enough usage to have the same ceiling as Roberson did sharing the floor with Kawhi and LMA, but he’s a solid play tonight IMHO and should be relatively low owned.

    Makes the most sense IMHO.

    I think question on green is. Does he play 26 minutes or like 35 minutes? IF pop decides he wants to use green as the primary defender then id guess 35 minutes and then he comes into play. If he only plays 26 like he did against memphis then meh. Kinda hard to predict i guess.

  • kwolf2783

    Beverley, Parker, Powell, Sweet Lou, James, Leonard, Serge, Frye, Nene……or take serge out and use aldridge……thoughts?

  • ShaneDrainOhhh

    green is in play. honestly toronto is gonna put up points. LBJ might go ham….whooopteeeedooo same for lowry or derozen. I’ll take my chances with NeNe over LBJ

    You should probably go bet the Spurs to make the finals then, you’ll get a great price.

  • ShaneDrainOhhh

    I got some with serge some with aldridge and I played kyrie and love but no LBJ

    I love how every slate conversation starts off with someone telling you to fade the best player on the slate

    Right lol….

  • Dfspacman

    What strategy can I use for today’s slate, making just 3 lineupss

  • loutheitalian

    6.6k is to high for ibaka lock and load love pj and patpat

  • FDDough

    Between Harden and Lebron im going Lebron on FD. Harden has NEVER hit value in San Antonio and thats when he was 11K. I understand the playoffs are about raw points not necessarily hitting “value”, but Playoff Lebron at home against Toronto is a safer bet.

  • coachzimmer

    might as well throw poeltl and nogearia out there with that lineup lol

    That’s what happens when you have a forum full of Lebron haters. Nothing new to be honest. Just roster him then sit back and relax and laugh at the idiots.

  • Element828

    Im liking the balanced approach tonight. Both Toronto and SA have good defensive players that can handle Lebron and Harden. I think both can still get around 50fps but for their price you need 60+ for them to help your lineup. Leonard is cheaper but I see Houston putting Ariza on him and hes a pretty good defender. I could be wrong and both Lebron and Harden go out for triple doubles and get you 65-70+ and if you don’t have them you don’t have a shot in a gpp, but I am taking my chances in that they both score around 50fps and doesn’t hurt you if you don’t have them. If you do play both it takes a big chunk out of your salary also, as playing both only leaves you with $4,616 per player on DK. You could play another mid-range guy but then you are stuck playing several value guys and im not seeing much value I like.

    You can easily put in Lowry, Irving, Ibaka, Love, DeRozan, and Alridge and then 2 value plays making a pretty balanced lineup with players who should see heavy minutes.

    Its tough to predict a blowout especially after a team has sat out for almost a week and might have some rust to shed the 1st half… Plus the Bucks played really good D against Toronto the first round as opposed to the Cavs that played horrid D.. Im not buying the blowout talk here. Its possible but unlikely IMOP!

    I don’t think Cleveland is good enough to blow anyone out.

    FD playoff basketball is a joke…not sure why they even have a salary cap. They should just say play who you want at the designated positions.

    Why do you say that? I find the pricing for Lebron and Harden to be cost prohibitive on FD.

    I won’t be fading Kawhi.
