Fanduel DFS NBA Lineup Jan. 6, 2017

Hey there, friends!  Who's ready for another Fanduel NBA Lineup?!  I ended up 1 out of 4 last night.  A few of the last minute changes really screwed with my lineu (SHOULD HAVE LEFT McCOLLUM IN!!!) but that's just the way the ball bounces sometimes.  Let's jump right in!

Fanduel DFS NBA Lineup Jan. 5, 2017

Hey there, friends.  Ready for today's lineup for Fanduel's main slate of games?  Yesterday was a bit of a weird night on Fanduel.  My suggestion lineup scored over 312 fantasy points, yet it ended up well below the winners column.  What gives?  I'll chalk it up to a fluke night since generally, anything over 300 fantasy points usually equals a win.  I ended up with a big fat goose egg last night,  So let's get right in to it!

Fanduel DFS NBA Lineup Jan. 4, 2017

Fanduel Logo

Hey there, friends.  Ready for another lineup for Fanduel's main NBA slate of games tonight?  If you ended up using my lineup from yesterday, you might have ended up a winner.  I did.  I managed to score cash on 3 out of 4 games.  In the end of the night, I ended up winning $1.40.  Yeah... it's peanuts, but a win is a win!  So let's dive right into it!

Fanduel DFS NBA Lineup Jan. 3, 2017

Hey there.  I made a post yesterday about providing you guys with a FanDuel lineup for the NBA Main slate of games and decided to make it a daily column.  Yesterday's post was fairly short and provided little to no information.  Posts going forward will provided at least a bit of insight as to why I chose the players in my lineup.  I'll also provide you with the results I got with the lineup given.  I can't guarantee that the lineups are winners and I won't claim to be a fantasy sports guru.  I simply do it for fun (and to make a few dollars on Fanduel) and I hope that you guys use this information to help build your own lineups.  So without further delay, let's get into it!

Fanduel DFS NBA Lineup Jan. 2, 2017

Fanduel NBA Lineup
Hey there friends.  Let's start a daily fantasy basketball lineup thing!  I love fantasy sports and while I don't consider myself to be an expert, I have been able to come out about even in my fantasy sports lineups.  So, I've decided to share my lineups with you guys.  Today, I'll just share the lineup, but going forward, I'll try to give a little insight into why I'm choosing those players.  Hopefully, this series becomes something that you guys will love to see and will come back for more!  Just a little insight on this series:  the lineup will be for the Fanduel website and it will be for the Main NBA slate!  I will also try to have the final lineup go live approx. 30 minutes before the lineup locks, but I'll have my first lineup up early in the day.

Good luck, friends!

Fanduel is Simply Awesome for Fantasy Sports

Hey there.  I love sports.  Though my basketball team and football team are horrible this year (Raiders haven't won a game this season and the Lakers notched their 2nd win of the season last night), it doesn't stop me from enjoying the games.  I'm a fan of the sport so it really doesn't matter to me who's on the screen as long as it's a good game.  But why not take it step further?  Why not make watching a little more interesting?  This is why I love fantasy sports.  I've been playing fantasy football for a few years now and I can honestly say that since I started playing, my enjoyment of the NFL has increased.  Because I can pick and choose players from many teams to create my fantasy team, I end up following more games, I end up being exposed to different styles of play, and I end up appreciating what other teams are doing.  The same applies to fantasy basketball or any other fantasy sport that you may look into getting.  Because I choose players from many different teams, I tune in to see how they are doing.  And I'm not the only one.  It's why sites like Fanduel do so well.  You can play for free, but you can also plop down a dollar and see how you do.  Well... I recently accepted an offer from Fanduel to play a cash game for free.  Why not, I said.  Well... this is what happened from that free game...

Join Fantasy Feud for All Your Fantasy Sports Needs

Hey there.  I love sports.  So much so, that I take part in fantasy sports all the time.  Fantasy football is my game.  For 17 weeks, I get to be the GM of my team (the name of my team is ALWAYS Creeping Death) and I get to battle friends for a full season for football supremacy!  But now that the NFL Playoffs are coming to an end and fantasy football is done and done for the year, I decided to check out some of the other fantasy sports for the first time.  I joined a few free leagues and tried out more than a few websites.  After about a month of trying out different sytsems and websites, I find that the guys over at Fantasy Feud do it best!

Thoughts On... The 2012 - 2013 Los Angeles Lakers Season

# 7 Lakers vs # 2 Spurs!  NBA Playoffs!  I love this game!
Hey there.  I'm a huge sports fan.  I strongly support the Los Angeles area teams but really, I'm just a fan of the sport.  Whether it be basketball, football, hockey, or baseball, I'll support the local teams because I just love the thrill of competition.  For as long as I can remember, I have been a Lakers fan.  I've seen them win with Magic Johnson, I've seen them win with Kobe and Shaq, I've seen them miss the playoffs, I've seen thm steal Pau Gasol from the Grizzlies, and I've seen them assemble this "super team" of Steve Nash, Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard.  This season was to be season where the Lakers steam rolled through the NBA.  The season where the Lakers play the unstoppable force going up against the NBA.  Last night, the Lakers made the NBA playoffs... as the 7th seed.  It's been a tumultuous season for the Lakers.  Mostly frustrating, partly exhilirating, all with a touch of Hollywood drama.  Here are my thoughts on the Los Angeles Lakers 2012 - 2013 NBA season.

ThunderStruck Movie (Starring Kevin Durant) Combo Pack Giveaway


Hey there. Who here is a sports fan? Specifically, the NBA? I love basketball. I'm a huge fan of the Los Angeles Lakers! Last year, the Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder had a playoff series for the ages. Many considered it the passing of the torch in the Western Conference. I didn't. I expect the Lakers to bounce back this year and avenge that playoffs series lost! If you watched the series, you may have noticed how atheltic and skilled the young Kevin Durant is. The young man is making a name for himself in the NBA and he's going to be a forced to be rekoned with for years to come! But I bet that many of you know that he starred in a family friendly film! For those of you looking for a wholesome film starring NBA All Star Kevin Durant, you have to check out his film, ThunderStruck! The movie is set to be released on 12/4 but our good friends at Warner Bros. have reached out to me and have provided a copy of the movie, ThunderStruck, for me to giveaway to one of you, my faithful readers! Check out this brief synopsis of the film:

Thoughts on... The OKC Thunder Beating the LA Lakers 4-1

OKC wins Games 5 106-90 and the series 4 games to 1.
Hey there.  Tonight, the young guns took out the veteran dogs.  The OKC Thunder has taken out the Los Angeles Lakers from the NBA Playoffs.  Aside from Game 1, an OKC blowout, this has been a hard fought battle.  Each game decided in the final minutes in the 4th qtr.  It was essentially what NBA fans want to see.  Star players going at each other trying to will their team to victory.  Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden took it to Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Andrew Bynum.  The problem for the Lakers?  Kobe was the only one that showed up to play most of the series.  Here are my thoughts on the OKC defeating the LA Lakers in the NBA Playoffs.

Derrick Rose Hurt: Chicago Bulls Vs. Philadelphia 76ers Game 1

Derrick Rose clutches his knee during the Bulls 103 - 91 win over the 76ers
Hey there.  The NBA Playoffs are here!!!  I love basketball.  I love to follow the Lakers and all of the Hollywood shenanigans that follow them.  But once the playoffs start, I try to watch all the games because this is the top 16 teams playing for a championship.  The playoffs tipped off with Game 1 of the Chicago Bulls vs the Philadelphia 76ers.  The Bulls are superior team.  They should win this series easily.  With a strong line up of Derrick Rose, Carlos Boozer, and Joakim Noah, the 76ers just don't have the players to match up with them.  With a little over a minute to go in the game, the 76ers chances got a little better:  Even though the Bulls took game 1 against the 76ers, their championship run took a big hit.  Derrick Rose is injured.

Battle of Los Angeles - The Lakers Vs. The Clippers

Lakers 113  -  Clippers  108
Hey there.  Last night, there was a dog fight in Los Angeles.  The Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers, in the confines of The Staples Center, went all out to prove which team is the better team of Los Angeles.  There is definitely bad blood between them.  The Clippers, tired of being regarded as the little brother of the Lakers, went out and improved their team by acquiring star guard Chris Paul.  The same Chris Paul that the Lakers tried to acquire before the deal was struck down by the commissioner, David Stern.  The Clippers believing that they now have the superior team to take over Los Angeles, forgot that the Lakers have always been a formidable team.  Especially when the Kobe "The Black Mamba" Bryant refuses to lose.

Does Tebowing Work?

I used this one because it has the Raider logo in the back
Hey there. We've all heard it.  We've all seen it.  If you have a pulse and know anything about sports, then you're now familiar with who Tim Tebow is and the craze that he has started.  Yup.  I am talking about Tebowing.  It's a very simple gesture.  You get down on one knee, bow your head, and place your forearm across your forehead as if you are in player.  Of course, Tebow actually is in prayer when he does it since he's made it clear to everyone what a devout Christian he is, but every one has been Tebowing in the same fashion as planking.

Thoughts on... The Los Angeles Lakers Starting the 2011-2012 Season 0-2

Lakers star Kobe Bryant
Hey there.  The NBA is back!  After much anticipation, the season finally took off on Christmas Day.  Many of the top teams of the NBA were showcased to a national audience and while much rust was expected due to the lack of a preseason workout, there were still quite a few surprises during the first few games for many teams.  Even though I love to watch the NBA, I'm more concerned about the Lakers more than any other team.  Christmas Day saw the Lakers lose a close game to the Chicago Bulls and last night, they couldn't stop the Sacramento Kings from shooting 3 pointers.  Here are my thoughts on the Los Angeles Lakers starting the season 0-2.

The State of the NBA

Chris Paul to the Lakers?!  I need to consult with my
Magic 8 ball first!
The NBA is back and it’s in full EFFECT!! Hours after the lockout was lifted, we had our first big move, New Orleans point guard to the Los Angeles Lakers in a 3 team trade, which included the Houston Rockets. Right off the bat, the NBA was top news because something major was about to happen merely an hour after the lockout was lifted. No more than 24 hours later??? A bigger bombshell struck! The trade was vetoed. Wait! WHAT!? VETOED!! What do you mean vetoed? What does that mean?

The 2011 NBA Lockout is Over

Hey there.  I love basketball and the fact that there's no NBA on my TV in November just seems wrong.  The 2011 NBA lockout just seemed to be a ridiculous at times.  The NBA was coming off one of the most exciting Finals in recent memory and the NBA seemed poised to build on that momentum.  Instead, the NBA allowed to league to lose steam, allowed the players to seek employment elsewhere, and allowed the fans to be irritated beyond belief that a collective bargaining agreement could not be made.  However, today, the NBA and it's players have tentatively agreed on a new deal to get basketball back on TV starting on Christmas Day!
