The Finals are here!  On today’s show, Slim and I catch up on that preposterous Devin Booker game from the weekend, Reggie Jackson‘s potential shut down, and how Slim is managing his squad down the stretch.  Monsieur Elbow leading many to the promised land!  We also chat on Dennis Schroder vs. Elfrid Payton next year, rapid-fire mock draft the top-6 for 17-18, play a quick edition of Can We Make Slim Look Stupid, make our 30-point challenge picks, then wrap up the week at the movies.

    Even though Wall just had a stupid game in LA, I’m betting he’s gonna show up once more for CP3. Gimme him!!

      @jb Gilpin: little concerned about Baze returning next game, as a THJ owner. Do I cut him in my 10er roto and swap him for either Miro, Monta (nice run), Ross, or Hood (if Hayward is still out)? Or will his return hurt Prince more than THJ? If not, do I swap for Prince, perhaps? Miro seems hot but I’ve owned him in the past and need strong FG%.. or just hold THJ?

        @Lasandro: Goin for the back to back I like it! Yeah bad THJ game… I think it hurts Prince more, but I do like Miro in a vacuum. i think all are FG% risks…

        @jb Gilpin: I’m watching the game and Johnny’s got 30 before the end of the 3rd. Yeeeeah Boi! That’s 3 outta my last 4 baby! 😎

          @jb Gilpin: yay!!

          So, Otto is a drop in my shallow roto yeah? Sure, he’s helping my metrics and all, but right now I’m in need of money stats and 3s ain’t one of them. Plenty of options out there, like the ones I mentioned above. Think I hold in hopes that he busts loose over the next few? I’d, for example, rather own Ross right now.

            @Lasandro: Yup, in Roto you need to slay those last cats that can get points for you, and that’s not Otto’s game. Totally good with that

              @JB Gilpin: Can you drop Otto Porter? In my league he’s on the can’t cut list, I wanted to drop him but can’t.

                @Lasandro: @Shahed: That’s a good question, kinda annoying if he is on cant cut list

                  @JB Gilpin: cant cut list should not exist in the playoffs.

    In a 9 cat h2h, marquess Chris is ruining things for me lol. Is he a drop? Waiver wire has: mirotic, monte Ellis, RHJ, illysova

      @Mak: Yeah dunno where the D stats have gone! Sure, I don’t mind going upside of Miro

    I don’t appreciate these cancer ads in the middle of the pod cast. ;p I don’t mind the start and end of the pod but during it? come on ; [

      @Jeremy: Not entirely in our control… Appreciate you listening! What’s worse to you, the automated ad or the live read? Slim had a great idea, maybe we start a kickstarter to make the pods ad free, it wouldnt need to make much haha

      • Jeremy says:

        @JB Gilpin:

        Haha thanks for making the pods. I prefer the live reads, at least you have to get creative with those.

          @Jeremy: Cool good to know. Yeah this one was a little ad crazy since we have two weekly sponsors and could only do 1 Pod this week. Thanks for the feedback!

    Had my league finishing last week, and I won the final! Thanks for many helpful thoughts along the way!

    One more thought before I wrap up this season would be appreciated though, what do you make of Embiid in dynasty? I have a deep roster and can afford to keep him gambling on him being healthy next year but I am also considering cashing in for a safer player, albeit with lower ceiling.

      @Big Red: Hell yeah man, glad to hear it! Nice work! Hmmmm, kinda depends on your depth, and if you have a deep roster, might as well hold him and see what happens. If he plays like he did this year through a healthy stretch to open next year, I think you could get more than right now. And if you have depth, might as well take that risk

    Damn almost missed it. Gotta go with a late one I’ll go Gordon Heyward for 30!

      @Connor: Surprised he played! But yeah options were limited, he had a good game tho!
