Sixers vs Wizards On ESPN



  • In case you want to watch Embiid and Oubre. Probably much more Embiid than Oubre.



  • @BShark

    Too bad Kieff is injured, we could have seen 3 Jayhawks on the floor at the same time.



  • Yeah. Kieff is def a starter for them when healthy.



  • Oubre ballin out tonight.



  • @BShark I had him in one of my Draft Sharks lineup. He broke 30 fantasy points, and his salary was 3k. That’s 10 times value, and I banked it. On the way to 300 points tonight, which means $$$. For shits and gigs, I threw in Josh in several lineups. I also threw in Frank on one…lol.



  • Speaking of drive thru’s

    Nathaniel Conant’s booking photo from the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. COLUMBIA, Mo. — A University of Missouri graduate has been charged with driving onto the school’s basketball court this summer and causing more than $100,000 in damage.

    The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that the four property damage counts were filed earlier this month against 23-year-old Nathaniel Conant. His attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.

    Court records say video shows a car being driven through several gates, a garage door and striking two golf carts on June 25. The car was leaking coolant and left skid marks on the court. Police say the driver fled after smashing through a gate near the stadium.

    Investigators found a cell phone they say belonged to Conant as well as a license plate to a car registered to him at the scene.



  • @KUSTEVE If he shows out like this consistently and has a break out year I gotta imagine they raise his DK salary. Nice call tonight.



  • @BShark

    Yep. Oubre has been flying under the radar but he has put some good performances and is starting to shine.

    Wiggins had 26 points but the Wolves let the game at San Antonio get away in the last couple of minutes after taking the lead from being 13 points down. They have the worst record of losing games in the last few minutes; if they could fix this the team could be very good.



  • I am without a cable company at present but I have access to watch games on replay. I saw most of the minutes Joel played.
    That guy. He is a generational game changer. When he expressed his distaste with his minutes restriction at 15 minutes, the management caved this time. He played 27 minutes I think?
    Had a double double with 18 and 13.
    Damm, he gets a full season under his belt and no one will be able to stop him. No body. He just gotta stay on the court!



  • @Lulufulu PSVue core plan is pretty good for $45 a month and it stays at that price unlike the companies that have intro rates.



  • @BShark No kidding!? I’ll check that out dude! Thanks!

    I travel a lot for my job now so I don’t have a home or a cable company to hook up too as a result.



  • Yeah it’s what I use. I gotta proxy for the blackout stuff though since I’m in KS. Lol



  • @BShark

    I am seriously tempted to cut the cord since the cost of cable is becoming outrageous. In order to get most KU games I have to get the sports tier and when you add everything I get a couple of hundred channels and I watch only a handful and pay a lot of money and I still get several KU games blacked out. I wish there would be a way to select only the channels you want to watch and skip the rest. I know several friends that have done this and have only Internet and they tell me that you can watch just about anything without cable. I need to look into this.



  • @JayHawkFanToo https://www.sling.com is what we use. ESPN package is $20 a month, Fox package is $25 or get both its still cheaper than cable. Local channels are free.



  • Sling is also solid yep.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Depending on where you live, you can probably get cable for just October and November for those few games. Then drop it and pay for just internet. Sling seems like a fantastic option as does the new PlayStation Vue. Playstation Vue gets NFL Redzone.

    Hell, you can probably get both, a Netflix and HBO subscription for the same price as a monthly cable bill tbh.



  • @Kcmatt7

    I have Netflix and don’t use it much. Hulu is one that lots of people rave and I am looking into; I will have to check Sling. Many of the cable stations carry the same programming on the internet with some time delay. Time Warner or I guess it is now called Spectrum has a month to month cable subscription. Consolidated carries ESPN 3 and I am not sure if I get just internet with them it would include ESPN3. My yearly contract with Consolidated Communications ends in less than 2 weeks so I will be making a decision soon.



  • @JayHawkFanToo You’ll never go back once you cut the cord.



  • @Kcmatt7 @KUSTEVE @BShark @Lulufulu I currently have sling, it works pretty good I pay $35 a month for it with all the sports upgrades but it includes Fox sports Midwest, Fs1, Fs2, NBC sports network, ACC network, SEC on ESPN channel, ESPNU, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN3 live stream, ESPN news and a few soccer channels. It works good most the time if you have good internet, I have the app on Amazon Fire Stick. Only trouble is it is about 7 seconds behind cable. The package to get those sports channels on dish or direct, which I’ve had both is over $70 a month. I would like to figure out how to use the proxy for espn 3 so that I can watch the JTV games. If anyone knows how that works lol also I’ve heard that Roku is better than Amazon and that its pretty much the same from others advice?



  • @kjayhawks

    I use my cell phone as a hot spot still using my Consolidated login and it gets me around the blackout.



  • @kjayhawks If you run it off of your phone or laptop, you can change your VPN and watch the games that way.



  • @Kcmatt7 what is vpn and how do I change it.



  • @kjayhawks

    VPN - Virtual Private Network. Here is a good primer on it.



  • Google search for Hola. It’s free last I knew.



  • @BShark

    Hola uses a peer-to-peer network. Basically you access the internet through someone else’s computer in another location/country and people in other locations/countries can access the internet through yours. Not something I would use.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Only if you have the App on your computer. The free browser app doesn’t force you to use your computer.

    I have used it dozens of times and have not had a single issue. Maybe a slightly worse picture quality, but something is better than nothing.



  • @Kcmatt7

    Windscribe is a better option.



  • @JayHawkFanToo I’ll have to check that out. I haven’t heard of that one.



  • @Kcmatt7 Free to join with a valid email. Free accounts get 10GB per month so you’ll tank that super fast. I’m not sure how much data streaming one full game would take up.



  • @BShark

    You don’t need an e-mail for Windscribe but you are capped at 2 Gb per month; with e-mail it is 10 GB per month.



  • Can’t imagine you could finish a game with 2GB but maybe I’m wrong. Either way, 10GB for free and not super shady is nice so I’ll give it a shot and see how much data a game takes.



  • @BShark

    When I stream games through my cell phone hot spot the meter shows only in the low hundred MB maybe even less, not even close to GB. ESPN3 stream is low res.
