First Pick

Good day to you! ;)

We have so many new drivers in this fantasy game that I feel I need to explain a few strategies to make your fantasy game work and be enjoyable for you from now until the Finals.

First off, log in to nba.com/drive and you will see something like this...

.. then click on SELECT. Then on the next page, sort by AVG POINTS.

This will allow the game to lay out the best possible picks for you upfront...

Now pick one that you think will have a big game then click on SELECT PLAYER. Here's my pick...

Stephen Curry. Well why not? Record 3-pointers in a season. Player of the month. 29 points and 7 assists in his last game at Denver. You can't go wrong with him. Another thing -- he is too fragile in that he has been plagued by injuries in his career and can run a risk of being injured. Get him now while healthy.

Other alternatives:
  • David Lee. If you believe Curry can be fresh until the end of this series, pick Lee. He'll give you almost the same PRA.
  • Paul Pierce. He was my 1st choice but turned back when I saw that his Game 1s in recent playoffs have been dodgy. He needs to get it going before going big through the series.
  • Zach Randolph. It may be too early to pick a Grizzly as that series can go the other way. If you think they'll lose to Clippers, yeah you may pick him.
As for Carmelo Anthony, don't pick him yet. I'll explain in my next post. For now just trust me -- don't pick a Knick yet.

So, who did you pick?

UPDATE: I got some boo-boo. I had to delete my pick and get some info on alternatives, but forgot to set it again. When I came back and realise, only the Grizzlies and Nets series are available for picking. I picked Zach Randolph. Crossfingers!

  1. Ok, Taong. There are too many players, so I will follow my instint... I had 2 names in mind for the first pick: Curry (GS) and Ty Lawson (DEN). And my bet is... LAWSON.
    For day 2... I'll see... but I won't make a very deep analisis now. There will be time for this next round.
