Lineup and Advice
You can build around LeBron James, but a backcourt of Oladipo and Paul is favorable as well. With only two games on the slate, finding that value is key. And with a Game 7 and Game 1, you have to get guaranteed players. Unfortunately, only the Pacers have real guaranteed value in my eyes. There’s a whole lot of question marks and you have to hope one of them turns out to be the right answer.

Explanation of the stars after each pick
Each one of my picks is ranked on a scale of one to five stars. Picks that I give five stars (∗∗∗∗∗) are players that you almost have to own and I have no reservations about owning at their price. Players that get four stars (∗∗∗∗) are players that I think are strong picks to build your roster around.
Three-star players (∗∗∗) are middle-of-the-road solid picks who are fairly reliable to produce a good game. Picks receiving two stars (∗∗) are high-risk, high-reward players who do offer enough upside to be in my picks, but also have a significant risk factor that makes them dangerous.
One star (∗) players are picks that are the best option around that price point, but who I don’t think are great options. I would take any one-star player over any option not in my picks, but they aren’t picks to build your roster around.
