Slim is back!  I missed Slim!  On today’s show, we catch up on our Valentine’s Day, Kevin Love‘s knee surgery, and the Magic completely buffooning their way through salary dump trades.  Scott SKIIIIIIILES is like, “see, this is why I left!”  We then preview tonight’s games making our 30-point challenge picks (special double dip this time!), and wrap up the week at the movies.

    1. prepared to pull the trigger on getting klay for my schroeder. main hesitation is that i only have wall and d’angelo as my pgs, in a league with ATO. but i feel klay is more valuable. looking to drop shump to stash knight, who MIGHT be capable of getting assists. there’s also delly whos a FA. 16m league.. thoughts?

    2. who would you rather have ROS ilya murray dunn or chriss

      @hamtime: 1. Yup I like that deal! And yeah I think you take the shot on a Knight trade and he has more consistency, i would swap those. 2. I’m going all upside, gimme Chriss! Worried Ilya is traded

      • hamtime says:

        @JB Gilpin: thanks! accepted the klay deal.

        So my weakest links are probably ilya, mkg, brogdon, and dwill (have lin as well, but i just got him knowing he’ll play after the break). any of them definitely worse than chriss so i can make the add? im 9th place and i have 2 weeks to try and sneak into the playoffs!

          @hamtime: Nice! Nahhhhh, you have to win now, Chriss is still too up and down. I think I would hold your guys

    Matt Barnes has been fool’s gold for me before but his recent run looks more like what was hoped for on draft day. What are your thoughts on him ROS given various Kings trade rumors and players returning from injury?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Johnc: Yeah I actually ranked him decent, and it might end up turning true. I think he’ll easily stay in the streaming class, but yeah as some youth development happens/some guys get healthy, I think he falls out of the “should prob own” class like he’s in right now

    John Wall for 30!
    I think Westbrook is pissed that he isn’t starting, so he’s my pick for All-star 30.

    I had an open roster spot, so I picked up Len, cause I needed an extra big. Is ge a better stash or is Cody Zeller?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @TheMuppetManiac: Like those picks! Would be awesome to see RW go OFF off the bench.

      I’d lean Zeller still, I still think Suns are gonna play Chandler, ain’t no one trading for him

    PG13 for 30!

      @Niko-Cola Kevin: Ugh, I wanted that one too, too bad Slim got the first pick :/

      • Niko-Cola Kevin says:

        @JB Gilpin: Just listening to the rest of the pod… for the All Star Game, give me Giannis for that one

          @Niko-Cola Kevin: Damn you’re completely with Slim, I cheer against you 100% now!

    JB how are ya? Hoop season is heating up as the association unfortunately gets set for a week long Break from the action. Booooo. Oh well I’ll need to start looking at baseball for awhile. Until then though I have KOQ on my hoops team in a 12 team 9- cat league and should I grab Okafor, Chriss,, Cauley-Stein, Powell, Harkless, Nelson, JR Rich or T.Ross instead?

    My roster:
    PG Lowry, McConnell, Brogdon, Lin
    SG Seth Curry, Hardaway, Avery B
    SF Giannis, Crowder
    PF Jokic, Myles Turner
    C Embiid, Olynyk and O’Quinn

    As u can see I’m a bit weak at center right now but I don’t think I’m limited to getting another one even when I drop KOQ. I’m in first place right now so I’m looking more towards the playoffs at this time. Any other moves I should make? Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      @Tony C: I’m good man, thanks! Well, a nice little break for yours truly to focus on some baseball myself 🙂

      Yeah I’d make a move, damn your PG look light, but Jokic and Giannis killing those needs for you! I’d still prob add Jameer over Brogdon. I’m going all out and getting Chriss if you’re in first, and losing that KOQ. Any time!

    Gimme Beal! Think PG should be D’d up well that game.

    I actually still have that last all star weekend in New Orleans downloaded somewhere – was a great event. Don’t know why, but I see KD getting that 30..

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Oh nice, I like it! Which was the last NO all star game? And yeah KD is a good call for that one, since he’s kinda a “hated” guy right now haha

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @jb Gilpin: what’s this controversy you speak of on the pod!? How dare you strip me of my accolades.. who am I, Marion Jones?? I do recall simply mentioning that I SHOULDA picked someone a couple of weeks ago. Hm..

      Oh the last game in NO was in 2008. CP3 addressed his home crowd and he and West were running that pick n roll. But the starters announcement and halftime show were spectacular. For the latter, they had Harry Connick Jr MC a jazz show which featured all these iconic NO musicians, showcasing the local culture. This was particularly great because the city was still rebuilding after Katrina. The game was good too – Melo, kobe, dirk still in their prime. Bron played awesome.

        @Lasandro: Hah I had it saved in an old podcast notes, but we forgot to mention it: http://basketball.razzball.com/01272017-i-feel-like-i-was-tooting-the-bazemore-horn#comment-328204

        I think it doesn’t count 🙁 but will get Slim’s opinion haha

        Vaugely remember that one… While obviously great for their city, I was always kinda anti-NO Hornets bc they stole the team from Charlotte, the team I grew up going to like 20 games to a season 🙁

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @jb Gilpin: oh wow. Well I don’t want any controversy attached to my name, so deduct me Mr commisioner!

        Yeah man I was a big hornets guy too in the mid-late 90s. Remember when Tony Delk scored 50 that one game off the bench? Think he did it without a 3 too, which is practically unheard of from a guard. But G Rice was an absolute beast. Check out his ’96 numbers – man he woulda been a fantasy stud! Del Curry was also a phenomenal outside threat. Curry and Rice.. delicious.

          @Lasandro: Haha it’s all good I know it wasn’t an intentional thing or anything haha.

          Oh hell yeah man! Soooo many good memories… earlier 90s Larry Johnson as grandma. Mourning with that buzzer beater. Mugsy and Larry in Space Jam. Then later with Jamal Mashburn, Rice putting up that all star record for most point in a quarter, and most in a half… Baron and Ricky Davis throwing dunks… Ahhhh the mammeries!

          Here’s good vids – Rice ASG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ln1AZu2W1Qc

          Baron dunks on KG yesssss!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E73axY3SsJ0

    I’ll go Bradley Beal for 30, and Harden for all star.

    • Shahed says:

      @Shahed:
      Why is Carmelo in the All Star game, is it the fan vote or something else?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @Shahed: Nice calls! Melo is taking Love’s spot, since he’s out…

        @Shahed:
        Dude, Ivanka is Donald’s daughter not his wife, LOL.

          @Shahed:
          Yeah I know Love is out, but why Carmelo and not anyone else, just wondering, like why not Whiteside?

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Shahed: Oh, yeah I dunno the why… And I got confused, the names sound so alike!

  8. Irk No D Nowitzki says:
    (link)

    I’ll go beal for 30 tonight! And give me Anthony Davis for the all star. Easy call since westy won’t give the ball to any of the 4 dubs!
    For Carmelo it’s the commercial, sorry the commissionner’s choice 🙂

    • Irk No D Nowitzki says:
      (link)

      @Irk No D Nowitzki:correction, give me Butler instead of beal tonight!

    • Shahed says:
      (link)

      @Irk No D Nowitzki:
      OK, so it’s Adam Silver who chose, he’s an idiot. I think it would have been the first time LeBron was the oldest player in the game. Anyway will probably be Melos last, with Embiid and others coming up. I would have liked to see Whiteside get some respect, or Porzingis or even Beal.

        @Irk No D Nowitzki: @Shahed: Damnnnnnn Butler with the dead hole! Ugh! (cribbage term in case that sounded like something way worse haha)

        Me n you with Brow!

        Ugh, Silver trying to do ANYTHING to make the Poppycockers look less like a mess haha. Let’s hope Charles Oakley goes and heckles Melo 🙂

  9. The Gintern says:
    (link)

    Haha really should’ve picked a less dumb username… Gin + Intern = Gintern

    Going back to the well with Jimmy even though it’s against my C’s. PG has been so good against the Wiz this season, trusting the anti-logic streak to keep working for me!

    And definitely Russ for 30 in the all star game

    • The Gintern says:
      (link)

      @The Gintern: Ughhhhh, we lose and Jimmy goes for 29?! Tough lose lose for me tonight

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @The Gintern: Hah it’s not dumb at all! Just not sure how to say it aloud haha. Damnnnnnnn stupid 29 points! I was hoping he would miss the second Ft and go into OT… Dumb call at the end…

        • The Gintern says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: Yeah so soft, maybe karma catching up to Marcus for all those head tosses to get the calls…

            @The Gintern: Looked like he either grazed or didn’t even tough butler’s elbow… Was really weak either way haha

  10. Viz

    Viz says:

    I’ll take Butler for 30 tonight and Thomas for 30 in the All-Star Game

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Viz: Damn, Butler one off, brutal one for a lot of picks… Thomas, interesting, you are on fire lately though!

    Missed the games yesterday… oops but gimmie Westy for the All Star 30!

      @Connor: All good, no points to be had last night anyway… Woulda had like 5 points for people with butler, but 1 short… Westbrook seems a big call, it makes sense! Good luck, wait I mean, booooWestrbook!
