5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Dec. 26, 2020

I learned from opening night not to trust rookies until you see how they're played. Killian Hayes was pedestrian at best but Tyler Haliburton looked like he had coach Luke Walton's trust. He played 30 minutes and has a chance to win the game with a three-pointer in regulation but missed. He finished with 12 points, two rebounds, four assists, and a block with two treys. Another thing that I've learned opening night is you have to observe how a new coach goes about in his lineup. That happened Read More

Ranking The Best LeBron Shoes

It's kind of surreal that LeBron James is now nearing 36 years old, still playing elite basketball, and now has 18 signature models to his name. That's not to mention the other LeBron models like the Soldier, Witness, and Ambassador. But looking back 17 years, it's safe to say that the LeBron signature model line has produced some of the best basketball sneakers in the past two decades. Ranking the best LeBron shoes is a tall task, but I guess I have to do it. Best LeBron Shoes: Tier 3 Nike Read More

How to Play Horse in Basketball

The game of HORSE is easy and fun. The rules are straightforward, and it’s a way for kids and adults to compete without a serious handicap. You don’t even need clean courts for this game, because a backyard hoop should be enough. If you’re not too familiar with HORSE, let’s see if you could learn how to play HORSE in basketball from reading this article. Why is the Basketball Game Called Horse? No one knows why this game is called HORSE but a possible explanation is that players who invented Read More

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
