    Makes sense but they have 82 games to build up chemistry. Lebron’s teams the last 5 years or so are never in a hurry. All about May and June.

    Yea but they have yet to play together as a full unit, With a game against the celtics next tuesday….

    Lebron james on that same notion?

    Gimpy Lebron most likely on a minutes restriction in a game that Vegas has them crushing? Thats not a must play. Westbrook in a high total close spread and no other top option is obvious play. Hell be 70% and he should be

    How do you NOT run Westbrook on this slate? Thats like not running Harden last night??

    No, very different. Last night Paul was out so Harden was running point and got increased usage and played more than expected minutes. With George and Melo the usage won’t be quite as concentrated. Last preseason game vs Melborne United, starters pretty much played full minutes with Westbrook playing slightly less than both Melo and George (who played a whooping 39) and also taking fewer shot attempts than either. I’ll have some exposure, but I’m paying up to stuff as many higher dollar forwards/centers I can fit tonight.

    You’re 100% right. Harden was a must play with no Paul. But no way on Earth im fading or going underweight on westbrook on a slate where there is no other clear top option. stuff as many mid priced guys as you want. Westbrook is the only guy on this slate with the potential to do what Harden did last night. Plus its the preseason. Value plays will outscore regular season starters. Stars and scrubs is what gets it done. Look at last nights winning lineups. Rozier and Olynyk were huge

    Oh, I agree on the potential and also on the studs and scrubs approach to preseason in general. I’m going underweight as the usage is going to be much more spread out. Last year Westbrook averaged 24 FGA, last night Harden took 21. I just don’t see him Westbrook getting that many attempts next to George and Melo and having them will both will probably limit Westbrook’s rebounding as well. Anytime 1 of those other guys sits this season I will be 100% Westbrook.

    I agree regular season I’ll probably underweight on Russ too. But tonight? I’m all in. Its too easy to fit him with PG or Melo. Or both.

    Yep, 1 of my Westbrook lineups has all 3 as well.

    The real question is who to take from Denver in a game stack lol. So many options on their side.

  • Neilj907

    Any thoughts on frye or Thompson for a cheap big guy

    Id go Thompson over Frye but not rostering either. Pay up for a big tonight. Gobert, Jokic, Love, Millsap, etc. too many good options to pay down

  • winnerchickendinner

    You have to have guys with a high ceiling at all positions to win a gpp. Do not get cute.

  • tyetwo42

    All in on Drummond!!

  • Youngbandit09

    @tyetwo42 said...

    All in on Drummond!!

    Hes playing?

  • tyetwo42

    Yes. He and Reggie Jackson are starting along with Tobias, Kennard, and Stanley Johnson

    @cjrswish said...

    Why wouldn’t you want to give Rose some opportunity to do that in these last two preseason games? I’m thinking Lebron and Wade play 20-25 Mins tonight and the rest of the starters and second unit get around 30.

    And if they go to double overtime, there will be enough minutes to go around and make that happen.

  • Neilj907

    What kinda point guards are in play tonight if I fade Westbrook, right now I’m using elf and mitchell

  • monarch
