    Tyreke Evans dismissed, disqualified from NBA for violating Anti-Drug program.

    Evans has been dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for violating the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. He is eligible to apply for reinstatement in two years.

    lol. Making educated guesses it not luck. Foul trouble/injuries/bad shooting is more variance than anything. A lot of times what people think is an “ideal matchup” for basketball they happen to be wrong.

    you can tell me each number in the power ball has a 10 number range. first number 1-10, second 11-20 and so forth and that would be the equivalent of showdown. you know the range but still have to pick the correct numbers. Educated guesses on how another person performs isn’t the most ideal way to win a gpp. You need some luck thrown in, the same with the power ball.

    Wow, that is really severe.

    Like correctly predicting Kanter would get less run in Game 2 and pivoting to Collins, but having no way of knowing Collins would pick up 5 fouls in 8 minutes. Even for him, that was kind of crazy.

    Like I said before, they could call a foul on him nearly every trip up and down the floor. Playing him is like playing Whiteside a couple years ago.

    Your view simply isn’t grounded in reality. The smartest people who work the hardest are the winners in DFS, just like everything else. Variance is not the same as luck.

    whats hard work? knowing your pool of players and then spitting out 150 lineups from a program and hoping you have the right combo? I think my view is very much grounded in reality and ppl who think working harder at dfs is going to win them a gpp have the wrong view but I guess you need those ppl to sell packages and have dfs websites. Reality is picking the best players/matchups and hoping it works out. Losing or winning a gpp because someone made a 70 foot shot isnt variance, its luck.

    Feel like tonight’s Bell is gonna be Ghostface Killa.

  • me_mike84

    i have to agree that there is quite a bit of luck involved. you can crunch all the numbers you want and doesnt mean you are gonna produce a winning lineup. sometimes you just have to go with feel….not a spreadsheet. i dont think there is a single person here who would have predicted lopez having a monster game the other night. i would like to guarantee that those who had him as captain the other night had a ton of entries in the tournament.

    Do the Grind Down articles not get archived anymore?

  • damionismyname

  • sox9

    No Miro, but yes Illy—he might get 40-45 FPs.

  • sox9

    FD has never raised Illy’s price, still 4200.

  • ScofieldReturns

    i had 200 leftover for illy too, but went aminu instead lol. giannis over kawhi is saving me atm

  • sox9

    ABC gonna get both Siakam and Lowry to foul out

  • ASitar

    Siakam is a LU killer. About one-third of the LUs I think.

    Gotta go w your gut, I did a single bullet and felt he was due for a 50 burger. I’m about to slowly drop from 98th to 1,200th

  • me_mike84

    the one night i dont put a giannis/leonard as my captain…..cant catch a break

  • ScofieldReturns

    giannis over kawhi led me to the cashline, nice. Now looking at the sat/sun slate i’m completely lost, the pricepoints make it very difficult
