1.) Steve Kerr's win percentage in five seasons: USA Today Sports That's 78.5%. In an 82-game season, that's 64-18.

The Studs Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports This guy should be in every DFS roster and if you're not having him, there is something wrong with you. Hell, he can even be considered a bargain with his price. Green is averaging 16 points, 10.7 rebounds, 8.7 assists, a steal and a block in this series and there is no signs of him slowing down. I see him pretty much having a triple-double from hereon out. Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics Brian Read More

NBA Playoffs Predictions Round 2: Celtics Should Not Fear The Deer

Well, my Round 1 predictions are pretty much spot on except for the Thunder-Blazers series where everyone, including me, picked OKC to win. My reason was that Jusuf Nurkic is too big a piece to lose in the playoffs and Enes Kanter is light years away defensively compared to Nurk. However, I did not know Damian Lillard can do this. Or this. In Portland's case, I have never been happier to be proven wrong. OK, so let's move to the next round and let's see what's going on. Here are my NBA Playoffs Read More

NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day-- April 22, 2017
1. Rajon Rondo is awesome and if he doesn't come back, this series will be over... fast...

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday, April 20, 2017

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday
DeMar DeRozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($8,000)

Everything is exposed in the playoffs and unless DeMar DeRozan finds ways to expand his range or create for others, I don't think the high-scoring guard is a wise investment at $8,000. His rebounding numbers may even be just a fluke.

At this point, teammate Kyle Lowry may be a better option (though at a slightly higher price) having seen his last performance. However, if you want the bang for your Read More
