Real Dream Team NBA – Schedule Analysis – Week 17 – All Star Week

Updated: February 9, 2020

It’s the time of year again that every NBA player looks forward to – All-Star Weekend. For those that are playing, it’s a fine time of partying, networking and maybe a little bit of basketball. For the majority of players in the NBA though, it is basically a full week off from the rigours of NBA life. They can rest the little niggles that they have and spend some solid time at home with their families (or go to the Bahamas and party for a week solid!)

For RDT NBA coaches, it means that Week 17 is actually split over two weeks, with most teams having two games before the break, and two games after. The exceptions are LA Lakers who have 5 games and Cleveland, Houston, Memphis, New York, Orlando and Philly, who only have 3 games.

It also means that we basically get a week off too. Once teams have played their first game, they are locked out for the entire fortnight, and you still only get 3 trades for the period. This means that we won’t be doing any trades for the week directly following all-star weekend. Maybe we can go to the Bahamas too!!

Schedule Breakdown

8 Game Teams

We actually have our first 9 game team this season – the LA Lakers. Make sure you get LeBron and AD into your teams. The 8 game teams are as follows:

Atlanta, Brooklyn, Charlotte, Dallas, Golden State, LA Clippers, Miami, Milwaukee, Minnesota, Phoenix and Sacramento.

Oh Captain, My Captain!

Last Week’s Selection – Damian Lillard

Predicted Avg – 42

Actual Scores – 19, 20, 41, TBC

We have a wealth of options this week for our Captain selections. The obvious ones would be either LeBron James or Anthony Davis who both have 5 games this week. However don’t rule out someone line Nikola Jokic who has been killing lately with scores of 51 and 52 so far this week. Throw in perennial options Giannis, Lillard and Towns and you have a tough decision to make.
