Do any of you know how win shares are calculated? For the love of all that is holy, stop misappropriating win shares as a crux of an argument. I'm really sick of seeing this happen over and over again

Dinwiddie > Russell 

Lin might be gone but the nets head coach is just fcking atrocious remember how that standup comedian lets everyone in their roster play thats why nets team is sucking in real life and fantasy cause o

He's a beast. One of my favs. He contributes all across the stat sheet despite subpar FG%. His legs needs to hold up though.

 

If he can get his free throws back up to the mid 70's, I like him even more. His ADP will be low, just the way I like it.

i saw how fatkinson keep checking his stop watch in game like a P.E. teacher because he does not want anyone in his roster to play over 30 minutes, everyone only has to be playing minutes in 20s and below i believe that coach has an obsessive compulsive disorder where he gets really irritated and anxious when he sees someone on their lineup has played more than 29 minutes and 59 seconds his head explodes when he sees a number 3 in the minutes column "alright dawg you already played 28 minutes, GTFO of the court before I lose oxygen and faint when you reach 30 minute playing time mark". DLO was really good early season and streaky player but fatkinson kept taking him out when he was heating up which resulted to another brandon roy knees injury for DLO where his legs and knees are full of bone shrapnels..im picking him 6th round ot below for standard leagues

Playing in 12 leagues and I have him in 11/12 of them.  I have that much faith in him breaking out this year. He looks really smooth and comfortable out there this preseason, defense definitely improve a lot and puttting on more weight will only help him stay healthy! Don’t sleep in this guy

If there's one thing that helps bad knees, its definitely putting on more weight...

Woof... I’m about to hit the panic button.

 

May go grab Fox from waivers, shouldn’t have nearly the competition Russell has.

Pretty bad first game, obviously the #s and sitting out because Dinwiddie was better but also the lack of confidence in shooting and decision making.

His lack of athleticism and ability to overcome it (see jj barea, doncic, other) really shows when he can't create or put as much pressure on the rim as Levert and Dinwiddie even when he's a much better shooter.

 

Having said that, I expect the nets to give him a lot of chances and hopefully he figures it out. Will have some killer shooting games as well (5 3s in a quarter) mixed in with some duds

 

One more thoughts: I'd love the nets to play him a bit more off the ball more as a shooting guard in place of someone like Joe Harris with both CLV and Dinwiddie
