fade essentially means making an opposite pick from a capper who is either really cold or just not any good to begin with.

Mr SportsMavin.
Your thread was an inspiration for me to sign up with covers and open a thread of my own. I'll be honored if you dropped in from time to time and gave your opinion. I too, as yourself - have no inspiration to become a tout and want to do what I'm best at for totally altruistic reasons.
BOL Sir

Fuzzrod and turbo, how come you don't use the mobile version instead of the desk top version. I hardly ever use my desk top much anymore unless I'm moving some stock or doing continuing ed or some sh it.

I don't know much about basketball and this may help my perspective.  I only have one view about the NBA and that is this:

My observations are that those who feel the Lakers will soon come good are based only on the following types of argument; it's about time, they are the Lakers, surely they will make it, Kobe is great, the league won't want them to miss out etc etc.  Compare these types of emotional arguments to those typically put forward by really decent cappers, who focus on match-ups, schedules, stats showing regression etc etc.  My point being that nobody uses any of these points for the Lakers, only the emotional ones, as reasons to back them.  Look at the spread for the Clippers game, and people STILL took the Lakers.  Any other team v the Clippers with the Lakers record on a 'neutral' court would have been +8.

Maybe they will come good and make the play-offs, but they will have to start playing better than their opponents from now on (obviously).  And nobody has shown me a coherent case for why this should happen yet.  Back them at your peril!

If already the Lakers are the main topic of our discussion in this flop time of All Star BS - I have one perspective on that: the Lakers are of of the teams who buried tremendous amounts of the money for their backers in recent years. I have been burned on the Lakers a lot and somehow we never learn a lesson that the Lakers are not called the Fakers for nothing. When they can they don't and when they already want - they can't. The atmosphere in a club right now is very bad as Kobe's ego and Howards ego are on a collision course and D'Antoni's impotence to force his will is not there as never been in any of the teams he coached. He needs a disciplined players who listen to the coach and in the Lakers that is very hard to find. In addition - Phil Jackson's shadow will hang in the Lakers organization for a long time as the last Laker coach to be respected and listened as one who coached MJ. There are certain things you can never set back. The only team in NBA that is really coached by a coach is SA. And that is not for nothing. Most - if not all the star players on that team are not American players and do not have an attitude. They are mature enough and wise enough to understand that what is winning championship is a team chemistry and the great coaching. Unless you are Miami heat where the players have enough intelligence combined with ability. So for me - the Lakers will not make the playoffs as I see too many problems for them. And their fans as the bettors still would not care and will blindly believe (like me in the near past) that Kobe alone can pull them trough.

Exactly! Mavin! and Jules your perspective jives with mine. The public is attached emotionally and will not believe the lines because of the attachment. They think to themselves, Kobe, Howard, and Nash can't lose and there goes the cash. Not backing them is where your going to be able to make some nice cash!

As you say Mavin, you have been burned on the Lakers a lot and never seemed to learn your lesson. There is probably a lot of us that can unfortunately testify to that fact, myself included, but in my many years of gambling I have to ask myself one question, what generally happens to a team that I consistently bet on for a period of time and lose? I then quit playing them. Then what always seems to happen? The bast ards always cover like mad dogs for what seems like for ever! Now I don't believe in magic or any of that sh it, and you can call it Bio rhythms or whatever, but the story always seems to come out the same. The best thing to do is to just stay away from teams that are doing such a major transformation, especially since there are so many items on the menu. The Lakers remind me of a tech stock right now, extremely volatile. You want to make your tech stock go up, just sell that sob, it'll go up believe me!

There will be no explanations anymore and even the veteran participants who will not post the plays under that format - won't be entered into the contest. Along with a pick I would like to hear a reasoning even minimal but still a reasoning. If you don't have a time or are too lazy to do it - don't expect to participate. Let's make it productive on top of interesting. Try to post all the plays at once so I can have more time to cap than to administer. I appreciate your time and effort. GL

MEM - 6-0 SU & ATS last 6 vs DET including a 90-78 W this 
year @ MEM. MEM allowing 90.2 pts/gm, struggled slightly after g ay trade but regrouped & went into all-star break on a 3 gm win streak & more importantly scoring more pts since Prince & Daye came over in the trade. MEM avg 93.7 pts/gm but soared to 104 pts during the 3 gm win streak. MEM 14-5 SU & 13-6 ATS vs east. 
DET has won 3 of 4 going into all-star break including the big win vs SA & bottom dwellers of the east MIL & WAS and lost to NOH @ home, NOH are 15 games behind MEM. MEM offence is better and DET defence is worse since the trade allowing 99.8 pts against last 4 gms
