    Dude their name is mambaland. Do you honestly think he/she has something even close to an objective opinion on Lebron? Lol.

    Maybe he’s a scalabrine fan: the white mamba

    and who will guard gordon?

    Everyone guards everyone. Both defenses switch. No one guards one specific player.

    Who’s the GOAT aside, all Lebron has done this postseason was put on what many (but not all) would consider the best playoff performance we have seen in a long time, if not ever. What’s strange is that last night someone commented on him being in the next Tiger type scandal, the economic backlash from the last time he left Clev and his douchey postgame interview. Today, someone might have won the ignorant hater award, among some pretty stiff competition mind you, by saying he’s soft.

    The only reasonable reason for any of this is people are haters. I apologize for my part in instigating any of it, but I can completely understand how LEbron may not be the GOAT (yet), part of me agrees with the reasoning. However, the ONLY reason for people to go off on all these tangents after the performance(s) he’s put on these playoffs is pure hate. That much is NOT up for debate, it’s a fact.

    I really like TUCKER tonight hopefully to put on a M. Morris type performance. I think it’s a good bet that the splash bros don’t make it on the winning roster again, maybe one, just not both. I think Klay is easier to take away and Curry is going to be very aggressive because this is “his Fucking team.” I wouldn’t be under the field on KD, but I’m not going to over the field either. I’m fading D. Green because 9 blks/stls last game was probably an outlier and he’s just not even trying to score. With that said, he’s been exceptional this series,possibly GS’s MVP.

    I’m putting G. Green in every LU. They were using a lot of weak side picks with Capella to get him open looks. Gordon airmailed what would have been an open 3 on that play. Dray is taking away the lobs for Capella and they don’t want Capella picking for Harden because they don’t want Dray guarding Harden so Capella is doing stuff like picking weak side. They did it more than once and I think Green catching fire is Hous’s not so secret, secret weapon. I remember him lighting up Chi in the playoffs last year when he was with BOS and I think he’s got that game 7 type makeup.

    GL everyone.

    I’m not feeling it in the dumbedDownShowDown format.

    I have him at 30.55 dK pts at 11k?

    not good enough for more then 15% of my LU.

    @DC2380 said...

    Yes.

    I think the Rockets know this won’t be like last night’s game, and they can’t beat Golden State with one player, and are going to need some offense from anyone not named Harden. Look for Gordon to come out firing on all cylinders.

    Im not…$11,000 for a player who could get 20-25 fantasy points…yes he could catch fire from 3 and get up to 30-40 fantasy points but im betting he doesnt..i would rather save the money and go down to Gerald Green also helps fitting 2-3 of Harden, Curry, durant and draymond green

    If you don’t want to lose in the Finals, you can always be like Kobe and miss the playoffs or lose in the first round like those seasons after Shaq and before Pau.

    kobe another great player who stayed with his team and never had to leave town so he could win…make your team better dont run to someone elses to win

    Kobe is lucky he had Jerry West who got him Shaq and then when West was GM of the Grizzlies gift handed Pau Gasol to the Lakers. LBJ’s never had the management that has helped him in that regard until later on in his career when they got Irving from the draft (which LBJ kinda helped him with by leaving) and then traded for Love (although Love hasn’t helped with anything – the Championship they won Love sucked and didn’t play in the important games).

    You understand Shaq was the 2nd best player in the NBA and he signed with LA right when Kobe was a rookie? Kobe had nothing to do with that. Imagine if rookie LBJ had a player like prime Shaq on his team. They would have won 10 championships. The Kobe vs. LBJ situation is not remotely close to being the same.

    But to your point, Kobe is one of those players who if he had LBJ’s teammates would not even make the NBA Playoffs, let alone the Finals. Case in point: 2005 NBA Season after Shaq left.

    Anyways, I like Kobe a lot. I liked him more than LBJ actually, but I can’t possibly compare the two because their situations are so much different and at this point, I think LBJ has surpassed Kobe already.

    Can’t believe the Warriors are going to give LiAngelo Ball a workout.

    They’re working him out at the Burbank Walmart. Somebody in the Lakers front office won a shopping spree—you’ve got three minutes and you can have whatever you can carry out of the store.

    I’m all for the blindfold dart throw in a big GPP…but how big does it have to be to make it worth digging that deep in the punt bag?

  • superstars92

    Maybe D’Antoni had an epiphany and will play Joe Johnson some useful minutes tonight.

    D’Antoni made Joe Johnson career. If he doesn’t trade for him in Phoenix, he probably is stuck as a bench player for his entire career playing behind Paul Pierce in Boston. Maybe Johnson can reward him with one last great game, since he’s probably done after this season.

    Probably not gonna happen, but who knows, D’Antoni is desperate.

    I think its a waste of money to enter that contest unless you’re at least entering 6 entries. Because of the stupid bonuses it’s nothing more than a slot machine. At least 6 entries you’re covering all possible combinations with your lu. Otherwise its a dart throw 5am last dice roll attempt at winning.

    I hear ya. Hopefully my single entry is enough.

    Went with

    MVP – Curry
    Star – EG
    Pro – Durant
    Util – Capela
    Util – Gerald Green
