    Pick 1 bench player from each team that you expect to go off tonight.

    FVV and MB for me.

    I would say Hill and Ibaka.

  • RobertoTomba

    I’ve got Hill and Powell as my UTIL players.

    But, Brolo has had the greatest variance (in the series as well as the playoffs), and he has the highest ceiling…damn, now I’m talking myself into changing my lineup

  • shades

    Right now Hill and Illy on the cheap.

  • gaelicgirl

    All-NBA
    First team: Curry, Harden, Antetokounmpo, George, Jokic
    Second team: Irving, Lillard, Leonard, Durant, Embiid
    Third team: Walker, Westbrook, Griffin, James, Gobert

    Cue the hot takes on KD being in his feelings for Steph making first team over him LOL

    Don’t change, make another one

    No super max for Klay, either, just the 30% max…something tells me Klay won’t care

    KD and Boogie unlikely to be available for the first two games.

    I’m sure Golden State is very happy that Klay didn’t get on an all NBA team, because now they don’t have to offer the supermax to a guy that most likely re-signs anyway. Saves them tons of luxury tax in the future. That will save GS probably in excess of 50 million dollars in salary and luxury tax.

  • tmarohl

    So why are they announcing all of these awards now? I thought they had a show for that on 6/24.

    The Finals just got a lot more interesting!

  • RobertoTomba

    Good idea; I have Lopez/Mirotic for tournament, and Hill/Powell for cash.

    I don’t think Durant is playing the rest of the year. Probably why he is getting in twitter war with Broussard out of frustration :) Calf strain my a$$!

    Not how I would do it. Put both in GPP.

    And if you really feel one lineup is “safer” I guess you could play a cash game with it.

    Yeah, GS “hopeful” that he’ll return at some point isn’t what I expected to hear today, and KD definitely has too much time on his hands right now. You like the Bucks to win at home tonight, I presume.
    Saw this article on The Ringer this morning, thought it was pretty good:

    Going to the game. Very nervous. This may set up to be a huge Kawhi night. The reason I say that is the Bucks were double teaming him last game. He was primarily a decoy as he could not explode and go to the hoop, and his jumpers were short because of the leg injury. He was picking the Bucks apart when double teams collapsed on him. I think the Bucks play him straight up tonight and let him get whatever he can, and try to shut down the other guys.

  • yisman

    as expected

    I’m pretty sure Durant messed up the calf and the achilles.

    On the other hand I doubt he is too much improved health-wise tonight. He was pretty limited on Tuesday.

    Makes sense, looking forward to watching tonight. Injured or not, Kawhi ain’t playin’…

    Raptors had some success in limiting Giannis the last two games, curious to see what adjustments Coach Bud will make. Still rooting for the Bucks, try to have fun at the game tonight! I recommend lots of beer LOL

    I’ll have him in 1 lineup (not as captain) just because he’s Kawhi, yet I agree he didn’t look right, so I’d be surprised if he dominated. It could happen, I’d just be surprised.

    My wife is going with me, Bucks don’t usually play well when she is there. Going to the deer district before the game to pregame.

    Klay looks pissed when told he didn’t make all NBA.

    Klay never gets enough respect, he’s used to it. It’s a travesty that this is the first year he’s made All-Defensive.
