Why did you guys pick those players?
kp/davis 3pt shooting offsets my vic/wall pairing....also kp/davis would allow vic/wall to be even more aggressive with their perimeter defense
Ben Simmons $1
Size with athleticism
and still have 3 pt shooting, but can guard the perimeter well too
Not so sure I'm good at this game.
combo of length shooting
playmaking from Bron
You guys are all terrible at this.
5- LeBron James
5- Anthony Davis
3- Damian Lillard
1- Victor Oladipo
1- Kristaps Porzingis
SF- LeBron James
PF- Anthony Davis
C- Kristaps Porzingis
Run the ball through Lillard in pick and rolls or LeBron James off the mid-high post. I have two high energy, long rim protectors that can also run and space the floor. Anthony Davis is the worst shooter on the team at 34%, but he's still a threat.
What the hell?!?! I created my team, scrolled down to the bottom to post it and saw you had the EXACT SAME TEAM. I had Davis playing the 5 with Zinger at the 4, but positionless basketball, right? Honestly, this team probably doesn't have much problem with the Warriors.
lilliard plays very little d like his partner cj
Lebron and AD is the easy part, then you're left with $5 to fill out the roster. It boils down to either Lillard or Gobert as the $3 option, and Gobert is the obvious choice. AD and Gobert protecting the paint would be intimidating as hell. 5 blocks per game guaranteed. Even if you manage to get past those two Lebron will chase you down to block any weak stuff. Lillard would be nice but Wall's defense out on the perimeter is a huge plus.
Embiid (or AD) 5
How you beat the Warriors is with toughness, rebounding, and play making.
This lineup has shooters, and bigs who can play down low and shoot on the perimeter. That size in the front court will pay dividends on the boards too. Lillard can facilitate the ball when Lebron needs a rest while also being a deadly outside threat. Victor can do a little bit of everything as well with his improved shot and defense.
Lillard should be worth $4 over Butler and KAT imo.
How about a small ball lineup of...
CP3 / PG13 / Kawhi / Lebron / Porzingis
Wall - $1
Oladipo - $1
AD - $5
KP - $1
Ben Simmons - $1
Horford - $1
You all did this wrong. Nowhere does the graphic say you can only pick 5 players. Gotta have depth to beat the Warriors.
Harden, Lebron and AD. Then 2 vet minimum @therealdeal purple giraffes, since they don’t count against the cap. I can use one at point guard to see over everyone and the other at center. Nobody is dunking over him.
The purple giraffe game is strong.
Not great ball handlers though. Too far from the ground.
Surely you just add any players to CP3 and Harden, instant win.
