    Brutal injury last night, prayers up for KD

    Made my LU already, stacking DEN-POR again as I think PHI gets eliminated tonight while POR still has a fighting chance…any guesses what Embiid’s injury du jour will be? LOL

  • Kanner88

    I’m only doing 2 DK LUs, but Seth Curry is my only Trailblazer. Hoping Dame and CJ don’t put up a 60 burger and Aminu/Kanter/Harkless don’t put up a 40 burger. I’m heavy Denver, but Portland is favored by 3.5 and I think they win this game.

    If they win, and I think they do, those guys mentioned will be putting those numbers up. So if that is your projected outcome, why would you not play any Blazers other than a bench guy?

    I like my other players too much and I figure it’s against the grain. I just think Portland wins, just being hopefully they spread the love. I’m locked into a particular core that doesn’t allow it.

    Sixers need to bench Simmons if they wanna win. Guy isn’t a top 50 player in the NBA. You can’t be top 50 and have no one guard you and still do nothing on offense. He’s literally a worse version of Westbrook so I don’t see why people like him so much.

    I replied with a simple GIF, and it was deleted? Why in the world…

    Maybe because it had no relevance to today’s topic of NBA playoff basketball.

    Because he’s gonna win me $100k tonight

    Haha yea I noticed in playoffs it’s always trend following not mean reversion. So Simmons is lowest ever but I think he should be even lower. It woulda worked in reverse with like Millsap and Butler for example.

    What happened to this forum then? This used to be all basketball talk and GIF’s to go along with it. I discussed basketball with a GIF, not sure how that isn’t relevant.

  • Danielv22

    I’m very interested to see if the sixers lay down like boston did last night, or if they fight harder and make some better adjustments. maybe play simmons as a stretch 5 when embiid is off the court? would be a crazy maneauver, but simmons had his best game- by far- in the playoffs when embiid was out against Brooklyn. in that game, butler played the pg role like he’s doing now and came away with his second most assists in the playoffs. the problem would be gasol defense but i would bet simmons athleticism would run him off the court for ibaka.

    Long story short, there’s a new unwritten (i.e., not yet incorporated into the Admin Note that spells out posting guidelines) rule that you can’t post just a GIF any more – it must be accompanied by some text that is relevant to the discussion of the day’s slate.

    next year I will have a new forum ready where gifs will rule.

    Unaware of this unnecessary rule, haven’t posted in a while. The old school forum users can’t like this though, which is why most forums seem to be a ghost town anymore. Too bad. I’m in if this happens tho!

    Not really that difficult to add some content along with the gif. Still confused why some make it more of an issue than it really is.

    Honestly, it was just a handful of members that started spamming them, ramping up the complaints and making the forum unreadable. Gifs can be fun, in good taste and used within the context of the discussion.

    A gif only post, adding nothing else to the discussion, isn’t needed and considered off topic.

    Gif away, just add something to it.

    I get it. I have seen it at times be like every post, and sometimes NSFW which I definitely get. My response literally had the words in the GIF, that I would have said without a GIF, so I think it might be a little overboard the other way now, is all I am saying. Thanks for the explanation, however.

    Butler will not let Philly fade like Kyrie did
