    if u are a true NBA junkie, I have no idea how u dont fire at least 1 bullet tonight in these degen contests just for fun…sunday as well. Maybe the move is to fade the guys that played last night? Sharp analysis right there i know :)

  • Bnett2210

    Yea I wasn’t going to but I had to fire one bullet, think Embiid will play? Lol

  • bfwl3434

    Anyone want to take a stab at the starters? My thoughts- World: Simmons, Murray, Hield, Saric, Embiid USA: Dunn Mitchell Brown Ingram Collins. I think Collins has to start to match up with Embiid.

  • Syzltuth

    Saw an estimated point total for the game last night somewhere at something like 145-138 USA, lol. No defense at all as to be expected. Right now I’m fading those that played last night because of them having to travel while the others are rested and ready for a dunk fest. Also probably fading embiid, if his ankle is questionable I’d guess he’d play limited minutes to keep him safe so just not going to bother with the risk on a garbage game and a single entry.

  • Bnett2210

    If Embiid don’t play then Sabonis probably get some good time for cheap, and the Collins idea of having to play if Embiid does is a good thought at least…just throwing something in An seeing what happens lol

  • acdawg712

    Prob all in on DSJ and possibly Simmons since the 76ers don’t treat him with kid gloves. Wish Dunn was healthy, really like his and Simmons’s style of play for this game, though the key will be how to treat the guys who played yesterday. I’ll have at least some Kuz and Murray.

    FD just let me enter the All Star Special with 21,600 FDP instead of $9 so what the heck, I’ll make one LU.

    I didn’t even know I had that many FDP.

    Embiid will play but my guess is he just makes a cameo. No way will the Sixers let him play many minutes in this game when he’s also a starter in the actual All-Star game.

  • Lathum

    Donovan Mitchell gonna go HAM in this thing.

  • Lathum

    I can also see a guy like Bogdanovic going crazy from outside with no one guarding him.

  • tomac

    If he can’t suit up for real games due to load management, there is no reason for him to play one minute this weekend. If he plays back to back nights in exhibitions, the 76ers organization is going to take a lot of flak.

    He’s scheduled to participate all 3 nights (Rising Stars, Skills Challenge and All Star game). I’d be shocked if he makes more than a cameo in the Rising Stars game tonight. He will do the Skills competition. Then I think he will play whatever minutes he’s supposed to get in All-Star game. My guess is around 20 minutes. He hasn’t played since Tuesday and is not expected to play until next Thursday. The All-Star game is an exhibition but guys like Joel get a chance to show themselves on a big stage. But not really much different than participating in practice.

    Why is one team named Wild?

  • clrockny24

    I think Markkanen could be a sleeper pick. If I was serious about making a lineup, I’d wonder a little bit about Mitchell and smith jr., seeing as how they are in the dunk contest, and may need to save energy for that. Just a thought

    All over the Celtics value stack

  • mcgruffthecrimedog

    Thinking Mitchell will be highest owned guy tonight but with good reason – at least I have a reason to watch the game later lol

  • Ree4erMadness

    I’ll definitely play some single entries, why not? I jumped in the $9 and the $12 on DK. Going with guys who like to run and play in the open court. I think Ben Simmons and Mitchell are locks. Then I’m going with DSJ, Tatum, Collins, and Bogdanovic. Its hard to fit in everyone you like if you grab 2 high priced guys. But Bog likes to shoot and has taken a ton of shots in his last few games. Ben Simmons will have the ball ALL THE TIME. I’m not playing Embiid in any lineups. He’s slower than the rest of those guys and he’s been questionable for a while and sat out the other night. I can’t see how he plays a lot in an exhibition game when the Sixers barely even want him to play in regular season games, lol.

    Jamal Murray averages over 50 fpts in Rising Stars games. You’d be a sucker to fade him tonight!

    Its weird, I tried to make some other lineups but I don’t want to take Simmons and Mitchell out.
