2017 is here!  Here’s to having a better performance than Mariah Carey!  Sooooooo funny.  On today’s show, we recap the action of New Year’s weekend including big games from the Heat’s Josh Richardson and James Johnson, plus the epic tripdub line from James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo now averaging a rainbow line.  We then play another edition of the award-winning “Can We Make Slim Look Stupid?” and preview tonight’s games with our 30-point challenge picks.

    Happy New Year 2017, JB, Slim and Razzball!

    My team so far is doing decent hovering at rank 5 in 14-teams H2H. So far my first pick at 6th order KAT hasn’t been quite as satisfying. His double-double is great, but his %, lower blocks than expected and high TO is not what I expected.

    Anyway, what do you think of trading my Wade+NickYoung for Eric Bledsoe?

    Here’s my current team:
    Guard: Rose, Kemba, DWade, Schroder, Brogdon, NickYoung, TJ McConnell,
    Forward: Hood, Batum, MKG, Marcus Morris
    Center: KAT, Gobert

      @DK: Happy New Year man! Yeah KAT hasn’t quite delivered, def wish I had Giannis 5 haha. Yeah that would be a monster deal if you can swing it, doubt it gets taken, but can’t hurt to offer!

        @JB Gilpin: Trade was accepted. Actually the other party is the one who initiated the offer. He later wanted Batum instead of Wade but I nicely declined and ask for his initial offer.

      @TheMuppetManiac: Sounds like a plan, going back to back 30s for Hayward!

    Happy New Year JB and Slim. So coming off an incredible 8-1 win last week I’m trying to start the hunt for #1seed this year. Speaking of, the only cat I’m like loosing every single week is steals. Its a 14 Team 9cat H2H leage and my team is:

    G: I. Thomas, Jrue, T. Johnson, Reddick, Miles
    F: Jabari, Jokic, T. Jones, Hayward, M. Williams
    C: KAT, Embiid, Montrezl

    Already tried some bold moves. Selling Thomas for Kemba or Wall. Selling Reddick for WesMat or Sefolosha. All denied. Guess my league hates me 😢.
    Any ideas?

    For todays 30p challenge I pick Marc Gasol. Keep up the amazing work in a has to be better 2017.

      @giantsftw: Current steal pickups on the wire: Ginobili, Tucker, Carrol, RHJ, Roberson.
      My clear cut candidate is Miles but not a big fan of any of this guys either.

        @giantsftw: Happy new year man! Yeah I can see why steals are low, but yeah looking like a good roster! Yeah I would still do Kemba or Wall over IT2/3, but it’s close! Redick is right with those two, kinda surprised Thabo didn’t get done. IT2/3 really fits you for the scoring need. How about selling Embiid high? I think you have good rebounds and TO rate, so it would make sense. Yeah I might go Carroll over Miles, but yeah, blah.

        Gasol it is! And thanks man!

    I’ll take Bledsoe feasting on the Heat for 30 tonight! Geez, looks like Miami’s entire starting lineup is out today…

    I’d love to get your thoughts on my team. New Year, New Team is what I’m thinking! I came out of the draft a strong punt FT team but due to injuries and just not being good (Capela and Nurk) I’m actually thinking I have an opportunity to pivot to a different type of team in a 12 team 9 cat:

    Guards: Curry, Rubio, Korver, Dragic, PatBev
    Forwads: Wes Matthews, Gary harris, TJ Warren, Marvin Williams, Thad Young
    Centers: Cody Zeller, Drummond, Jordan

    I’m actually losing blocks on a pretty regular basis, and all these point guards are dragging down my FG%…so I’m giving up FT and only winning Rebounds regularly. What do you think about packaging up drummond and jordan and moving into a punt blocks build? I was thinking of shipping them off for something like: Drummond/Jordan for Griffin/Gallinari/Beal (is that reasonable?)

    anyways thanks for the help!

      @jdubs: Dragic might play, but no James Johnson would hurt me! Well, Drum/DJ is always gonna be tough. Yeah not enough blocks… I like the idea to pivot. I’m a little wary of Gallo and Beal given health, then Griffin is hurt right now too. It’s a hell of a risk, and then you have horrible FG%. Any better throw ins they might have over Gallo maybe?

      • jdubs says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: yeah, I realize they’re all huge health risks but unfortunately the other team doesn’t have anything better…The only other guys on that team that could be swapped out for gallo are Elfrid and Conley and they have their own FG/health issues.

        On the other hand…I could go big and try Drummond/Jordan for Anthony Davis? Who also has health issues! Maybe I should look at another team, but I just figured this guy has Dwight already and might like to collect all the horrible FT shooting bigs.

          @jdubs: Yeah doesn’t really help the FG% issues getting Conley. I’d def try that Brow trade though! Would give your team a complete makeover
