Basketball 101: What Does A Shooting Guard Do?

The five players on a basketball team have their positions and responsibilities. One of these positions is the Shooting Guard. Some of the best players in basketball history are shooting guards and that includes Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. A shooting guard can also be called by other names. When you hear the word off guard, that generally points to the shooting guard although they may also be referred to as "wings," "two-guard," and a "swingman." (Oftentimes, small forwards may also be called Read More

Best Kobe Shoes For Basketball If You Are On A Budget

Kobe Bryant's signature models are some of the best basketball shoes ever made and I'm not just saying that because I'm a Kobe Bryant fan. His shoes-- Kobe 6, 8, and 9-- not only look good, but they also blazed a trail for low top basketball shoes.  With that being said, the best Kobe shoes are not only limited in the $200 models. Some of the best Kobe shoes for basketball are present in the budget "hundred-dollar or less" models. Let's take a look at some of these: 1.) Kobe Mentality 2 The Kobe Read More

NBA DFS Picks For Sept. 15, 2020– Bargain Picks To Consider

Tuesday's two-game slate is pretty interesting-- one featuring Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals and another a winner-take-all Game 7 in the Western Conference finals. At first glance, it is easy which game to commit to-- and that's the Clippers-Nuggets series-- but at the same time, it could backfire.  A Game 7 will likely feature a tighter rotation and more stringent defense, thus limiting fantasy points, probably except from the big guns. With that being said, I'd be very tempted to tap Read More

Best Bargain Picks At Yahoo NBA DFS– Sept. 10-11, 2020

I'll be focusing on Yahoo for this edition of Best Value Picks because they bunched two game days to make a three-game slate. That should give us more choices and options to manipulate the rosters, unlike DraftKings, who had mostly showdowns for the night featuring the Lakers and Rockets. Before that, I'm going to review my bargain choices yesterday. Marcus Smart (23 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, and one steal) brought his best game of the season in a double-overtime loss, tallying a triple-double Read More

NBA DFS Picks Sept. 9, 2020: Bargain Picks To Consider

It was pretty much good pickings from my last suggestions,  with Jae Crowder and Rajon Rondo, but PJ Tucker, George Hill, and Markieff Morris fall way short. However, if you went with Crowder and Rondo along with the number of better options out there, that should net a win in most leagues. In my opinion, the two games tomorrow will provide us a lot of options at the middle, especially on the Toronto-Boston series. On the Nuggets-Clippers series, it's more of hit or miss, but there are still plenty Read More

NBA DFS Picks Sept. 8, 2020: Bargain Picks To Consider

It will be a very tricky situation with Giannis Antetokounmpo for Game 5, but if he's not good to go, a couple of Bucks are definite go-to's. That includes Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, and Eric Bledsoe. Middleton is a lock to go for 40 FP and I think Bledsoe should also play more minutes and more usage rate if Giannis indeed sits out. If you don't want to play the Bucks, Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo have been pretty much unstoppable this series. Dragic is averaging 20 points, five rebounds, and Read More

NBA DFS Value Picks Sept. 4, 2020: 3 Bargains To Consider

It's been a wild playoffs so far this year and we've been treated to a handful of exciting series and a lot of insane finished. As the Lakers and the Rockets start their series, it's pretty interesting to see what happens with the Bucks.  For me, Khris Middleton presents more value then Giannis at this point at a salary that is significantly less than the Greek Freak. Another one that has proved his worth in the first two games is Goran Dragic, averaging 25 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and Read More

NBA DFS Picks For Sept. 1, 2020: Bargains To Consider

We were treated to an absolute dogfight in Game 6 of the OKC-Houston series. I did see this coming (kind of) and it's my strategy all along to pick up players from teams facing elimination.  That said, I was completely off in my Shai Gilgeous-Alexander prediction. He played almost 40 minutes and was pedestrian, but my Danilo Gallinari pick hit home. Gallo showed up for 25 points, five rebounds, an assist, two steals, and four treys.  In summary: Eric Gordon did his job once more, Dennis Schroder Read More

NBA DFS Picks Aug. 31, 2020- Bargains To Consider

The best part about yesterday's games is that the big guns came to play. Luka Doncic ended his campaign in style, Kawhi Leonard was in beast mode, while Jamaal Murray and Donovan Mitchell continue their insane and historic duel. Fred VanVleet and Nikola Jokic were also stellar. Now, if you had Montrezl Harrell and Seth Curry in your rosters as bargains, that might set your team back a little. Harrell basically did nothing while it would be better off if you selected Trey Burke instead of Curry in Read More

NBA DFS Value Picks Aug. 30, 2020: Best Bargains To Consider

Two series were over on Aug. 29th, but not without some solid performances from the losing teams. As expected, CJ McCollum, Carmelo Anthony, Jusuf Nurkic, and Anfernee Simons all gave it all they got. Simons was especially productive relative to his salary and McCollum and Nurkic both got to the 50 FP territory. If you followed my advice to go for Giannis Antetokounmpo, then you are also rewarded with another 50+ FP performance. Aside from Simons, Terrence Ross and Dennis Schroder were the only Read More
