              @JB Gilpin:
              Had a bye week this week, so playoffs officially start for me now. I cannot believe I own 3 Suns players, Ulis, Big Sauce and Chriss. But they look awesome, so I’m happy with it. Lost Lowry and Bledsoe, but still looking good with those pick ups.

                  @Shahed: Hahaha yeah I own that trio as well on one team! Have a Chriss/Sauce team too. Damn, sorry about your bracket! I did 3 with Zona, UCLA, and UNC as winners, so if I hit on one, I might win one!

      @Connor: I know man, it gets hot and cold really quick! I like that one, almost where I went

    Perfume!!! Hahahah omg Slim needs to see that, if only to share in the what did I just watch that is the climax and ending of that film. I saw it with my girlfriend and friends years ago thinking, hey Dustin Hoffmen and Alan Rickman and a weird interesting premise that should be a fun evening lol. Also I can’t resist that aroma of the Giannis train going for 30 against that Laker “defence”.

      @Foreign Affairs: Haha YESSSS!!! Glad someone got that. When I pictured an NBA game going full orgy, that’s the scene that came to mind hahahaha. I actually kinda liked the movie most of the way, but the ending was too silly. tom tykwer is a really good director.

      Lots of Giannis today!

    Haven’t listened to the pod yet as it’s too late over here, but gimme Booker v Magic. I’d go KAT, but I love James Johnson’s D too much to risk that pick. No Bled and Uliss passing the rock should equal to a copious amounts of shots.

      @Lasandro: Ahhhh cmon my man, listen to our soothing voices as you fall asleep! Haha. You and Slim loving the Book today!

    Razzup, JB?!
    Would you lose Crowder for Ulis?
    Have been a Crowder fan for years, but bearing in mind his slump and with my focus being on the finals week and BOS playing 3 matches… Other drop options are Zubac, Bradley (3 matches in the finals), maaaybe Noel (though I like his upside and stocks) and McConnell (love the AST STL combo, though I got the impression that few people share my enthusiasm). My team is well balanced so the position doesn’t matter that much, I’m shooting for the best value.
    Thanks and respect from Belgrade!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nukna: Whewwwwwwwwwww. Yeah Crowder has really faded. So finals week is not next week, but week after, right? Def need to add Ulis somehow… Wow, yeah I’d be OK losing Crowder

      • Nukna says:
        (link)

        Thanks!
        Yes, the finals are the week after.
        One more thing, would you lose any of the others listed for Chriss?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Nukna: Chriss def should be owned… How are your AST/STl if you were to hypothetically lose TJ?

  7. TheMuppetManiac says:

    I’m going with Devin Booker for 30.

      @The Gintern: Damn, got pretty close! Surprised they had that much trouble with the Lakers too…

    As predicted, my #1 seeded team goes against small ball defending champ (4seed) next week. He won out of the 4 spot last year, and I was the #1 seed then too, so I am very concerned that history must not repeat itself. His style is so hard to beat as he punts rebs, fg% and blocks but beats the best teams 6-3, 5-4 regularly via FTs, 3’s, points, steals, and assists. My nasty big guys are somewhat neutralized although those assists from Joker and Horford helps. Any thoughts on increasing my chances against this strategy?

    His: Lillard, Brogdon, Ariza, Saric, Dieng, IT2, Fournier, Lou Will, Lin, Ish, Joseph, Colly, Teague, Hardaway.

    Mine: CP3, RJax, Smart, Jameer
    Leonard, Porter, G Harris, James Johnson, Mirotic,
    KAT, Jokic, Horford, Adams, Poison Goose

    Best of a thin wire: Wes Mathews, Yogi, Kilpat, Tyreke, Mills, E Turner, T Lawson, Labissiere, Ingles, Valentine. Mirotic and Adams could be dropped during the week if I fall behind but that would leave me vulnerable in the championship if I did indeed advance.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Johnc: Hah that pesky smallball team! Damn yeah tough to fit your team vs his without blowing it up too bad. Yeah Miro would be a streamer if you need to. You should be able to hang fairly tough in FT. Smart could be streamed too. Honestly his 3s don’t look unbeatable, especially if IT2 maybe misses one more. Same with AST, they don’t look unbeatable. I’d stream those early through those few spots and chase whichever seems closer

      • Johnc says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Yep. Picked up Ingles for Monday hoping Hood remains out. Tuesday will be WesMat, Iggy or Yogi. Just gonna plow guards at him all week.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Johnc: Sounds like a plan!

    Part 2….made perhaps my best trade ever this year: my Myles, Howard, Crowder and Hood for his KAT, Jokic and Horford. Of course Jokic was garbage back then.

    And rejected a trade that haunts me from the same team (you said take it but I tried to get a bit more and Beal went off as did the deal) which was my Porter and Adams for his Myles and Beal. Myles was struggling and Adams was rolling. Those were the days! That missed opportunity and Lowry’s injury killing me. I was loving CP3 and Lowry at PG and KAT, Jokic at C!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @John: Haha yeah that trade is nuts. I like the deal you took more than the pain of passing on that second tho, for sure!

      • Johnc says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        True! Done beating myself up!!

          @Johnc: Yeah man, you made it this far, no looking back!

      @Dave: I’ll go upside of LeVert, they might just unleash him late. Unless 3ptm is a dire need

    Currently up 5-4 in the playoffs. Leading points by 6, 3’s by 12, ast’s by 22, and stl’s by 11. Down 7 in TO’s. I have Ulis, Wes Matthews, Crowder, Nurkic, Dragic, WCS, and Holmes today and my opponent has TJ McConnell, KCP, Teague, James Johnson, Chriss, TJ Warren, Zubac, Whiteside, and Shabazz. I’m thinking about benching Holmes, WCS, and Nurkic so I can try to win TO’s since I definitely can’t win points. Do you think theres anything I can do better? Thanks as always

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Cash: Yeah points seems to be lost. Could still be kinda close. Holmes I might consider leaving in for the steals, I could see those getting too close for comfort. Plus he plays early.

      Leaving out WCS and Nurk makes sense, I would just be actively following games until like 5:55 PM right before the 3 6 PM games start and make your final calls. Luckily a lot of guys for both of you start in those 3 earlier games

      • Cash says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Noted thanks JB! Been with ya for the last 4 years.

        • Cash says:
          (link)

          @Cash: I’m just worried that I’ll miss out on benching Holmes if he does happen to pickup a couple of TO’s. I don’t want to have to decide between some of my pg’s if i’ll have to protect ast’s as well as try to win TO’s later. I feel like ast’s is a bigger threat right now than stl’s. Lol sorry I’m so conflicted!

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:

            @Cash: Whoa appreciate ya sticking with us that long! Hope you stuck with holmes, what a line!

    Made it to the semis!!. 9 cat h2h. Here is my squad: steph, kemba, gobert, lillard, Tobias, crowder, WCS, marquise Chriss, Barton, Schroeder, Porzingis, dlo, Gorgui.

    Waiver wire has: Denzel valentine, jameer, richaun Holmes, illysova, brogon, kaminksy, robin Lopez.

    Should I make any moves or stick to my squad?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Justin: Hell yeah, nice work man! Holmes sticks out to me, Jameer a little too since he played well and DEN is playing to win. Since your scoring is so good, i think I would swap out Barton and add Holmes

      • Justin says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thanks!! Btw I will only get 3 games from
        Holmes since our waiver add format is daily tomorrow. Do valentine or Lopez stand out more with 4 games (their first of 4 game is on 21st).? Thanks again for all the advice

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Justin: Ah damn. Yeah I think robin Lopez if he cracks your roster each of the 4 Bulls games would be a better add then
