Conference Finals Predictions and Best Value Picks For Game 1

Here comes the Conference Finals people and while I was wrong in ONE of my predictions, that doesn't-- in any way, shape, or form-- stop me from making more. Who Wins The West? Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports I know all the experts like Portland here but truth be told, throw the stats out of the window, the Warriors are a level up as a team than the Blazers. That's how it is. I know they have split the series and that Dame has had a phenomenal post-season plus he plays great every time Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day

1.) Trae Young-- The 30-foot Assassin

Shooting threes are all the rage these days but there are some who takes it to another level. One of these is Trae Young, who leads the league in field goals made from at least 30 feet out. The percentages? 24 out of 67 for 35.8%. Nobody else has more than 20.
2.) Rookie Signature Shoes

There have only been NINE rookies with signature shoes so far and that list includes Hakeem Olujawon, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Read More

Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday– March 2, 2019

Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday-- March 2, 2019
Who To Pick
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder

Russ is still doing Westbrook things and now that PG is sidelined ahead of Saturday's matchup with San Antonio, look for Westbrook's usage to skyrocket. He had a 24-assist game this season versus the Spurs so he has proven he can bring his A-game against this team.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors

Cousins is a favorite of mine because he can pile up fantasy points in a Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day

1.) By A Wide Margin

As in wiiiidddddeeeee!

James Harden is the league's leader for total points scored at 2,006. The second behind him is Paul George at 1,650, which is a 356-point gap. And if you're wondering how many of those are free throws-- it's 546, which is about 27% of his total point production.
2.) All-Star Lineup?
On paper, a lineup of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and DeMarcus Cousins may very well be the best. It seems like defenses are adjusting Read More

NBA DFS: LeBron James and other top picks for Feb. 21 Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup

The All-Star break is over and we're back in business with a six-game Thursday. Here are some of the top picks for Feb. 21 including Lakers superstar LeBron James.
The Studs
LeBron James, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

We expect playoff LeBron to be activated now that the Lakers are basically out of the playoff picture. Whether you like it or not, their chances would lie on how well James plays, which he is, statistically. Since returning from a groin injury, Bron is averaging 23.2 points, 10.8 Read More

Best Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup For Today– Feb. 12, 2019

The Studs
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers

James has to get it going if he wants the Lakers to make the playoffs and while he has relatively played well since his return, he needs to up his play another level. That said, there's no better way than lighting up a mediocre team like the Hawks.
Klay Thompson, SG, Golden State Warriors

KT has been pretty effective lately, averaging 27 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 blocks over his past four. The two previous games Read More

5 Best Shooting Guards For Fantasy Basketball

Traditionally speaking, shooting guard is the shallowest position in fantasy basketball. Since point guards like Steph Curry, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving do have SG eligibility in fantasy, it makes the position pool look deeper than it actually is.

In this list - 5 Best Shooting Guards For Fantasy Basketball - however, I won't include the aforementioned names (because they really are point guards who can simply score) and concentrate on players who played the SG position for the majority of Read More

NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy on Nov. 16 – 2017

Only 2 games to pick from tonight, but 3 of the 4 teams are loaded with fantasy talent. I took Joel Embiid in my DFS draft last night and he scored 90+ points. Let’s see if we can pick out some similar gems for tonight’s matchups.

Tier 1: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving
My Choice: Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS
Boston’s defense is legit; they have the 2nd best defensive rating relative to league average since 1976. Jump shooters are just 16 for 51 from behind the three-point line against Read More

Fantasy Basketball Stock Watch: Players Trending Up And Down

OK, I know it's early in the season but we have to do this nonetheless. Some of the guys are playing so poorly we can't blame owners if they have gotten rid of them already. (Hello, Nikola Jokic!) Some, however, are just "beasting" from out of nowhere and some of them are probably available in your leagues you have got to drop someone for these surprise studs.

Stock Up
Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers

If there are any questions about how good Joel Embiid is, I reckon all of them are answered Read More

5 Amazing Basketball Stats Of The Day

1. Klay Thompson in 2016 Rio Olympics so far...
China: 1-6 FG, 0-3 from three
Venezuela: 0-5 FG, 0-4 from three
Australia: 2-9 FG, 2-6 from three

Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson could be worth more when they signed their deals in 1997 and 1981, respectively. Jordan's salary was $33M for 1997-98, which is worth about $50 million today; on the other hand, Magic had his $25 M a year 35 years ago, and that could've been worth Read More
