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 averagingย 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

NBA DFS Dec. 21, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers

If you have one big-time player to own on Friday, my money is on LeBron James. The Lakers are losers of three straight and it will be their first time back at home after a four-game road trip so James will be looking to put on a show. He is averaging 26 points, nine rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal, and 2.2 3PM over the last five games. Scary thing is, we know he's capable of doing more.
Marcus Smart, SG, Boston Celtics

Smart has been a fantasy Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS Sunday– Dec. 2, 2018

Players To Own:
Anthony Davis, C, New Orleans Pelicans

AD is in the conversation as the best fantasy player right now averaging 32 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3 blocks over the past three games.ย  This affair with Charlotte has all the makings of a fantasy-friendly matchup and Davis will surely be in the forefront of this one.
Mike Conley, PG, Memphis Grizzlies

Conley is blazing hot lately with double-digit assists in three of the last four outings. But his other Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS– Nov. 21, 2018

Players To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers

LBJ always shows up on big games and I'd count this one as such because it will be the first time he'll return to Cleveland wearing a Lakers uniform. His return to Miami saw him produce a season-high 51 and while I don't expect that scoring output this time around, I also don't think he'll be a disappointment in his return home.
Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies

Gasol has begun to hit his groove the last two games, producing 21.5 points, Read More

5 NBA Fun Facts For The Day

1.) Ray Allen holds the record for most blocks by an American in a single Olympics. He had 11 in Sydney back in 2000.

Also, John Stockton led the 1996 United States team in swats.
2.) From 1970-1986, there were no back-to-back NBA champions. From 1987-2002, only the Spurs (1999) did not win back-to-back.

In case you missed it, the Lakers (87-88), Pistons (89-90), Bulls (91-93), Rockets (94-95), Bulls (96-98), and Lakers (2000-02) all went at least two straight.
3.) Only 4 players drafted Read More

3 Things Cavs Need To Do To Win Game 3

1.) Play With Fire And Desperation

The NBA Finals is more than just X's and O's. After all, Cleveland and Golden State have faced each other for the fourth consecutive time in the Finals already.

What was lacking in the Cavs so far this series is the aggressive play that almost had them steal Game 1. Tristan Thompson making his presence felt, Larry Nance, Jr. having a hand on passing lanes, etc.ย  (Nance had three deflections, four loose balls recovered, four contested shots and seven box Read More

5 Unbelievable Numbers/Facts In Game 1 Of The NBA Finals

1. KD (and Draymond) couldn't guard LeBron.

Basically, nobody could touch LeBron in Game 1 as he went off for a playoff career-high 51 points. But KD, Bron's primary defender, allowed him to score 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting.

To be fair to KD, Draymond Green didn't do a better job, either. Green was LeBron's primary defender in eight possessions, and James scored eight points on 4-for-6 shooting.

Apparently, the Dubs need Iggy real quick or LeBron will probably average 45 in this series.
