Merry Christmas!  Thanks to everyone for making Razzball Basketball what it is today with your comments, readership, and most importantly – immense knowledge of fantasy hoops!  I learn as much from your comments as I do from anything else.  So curl up around the fireplace and watch NBA all day, because nothing is more fantasy sports-ish than ignoring your family because it’s a pivotal Sunday slate of games in H2H leagues!  And of course, special thanks to our staff who make the Razzballs spin round and round.

Happy Holidays to you and your families, from all of us at Razzball Nation!

PS – I’ll try to hop into the comments throughout the day to chat some of the Christmas games, so pop into the comments when you can!

    I’ve been offered Porter for my Jokic ina 9 cat h2h weekly lock league.

    My team.

    Pg: Conley, Lowry, Fraizer

    Sg: Butler, G.Hill

    Sf: Warren, Ariza

    Pf: Embiid, Leuer, Jokic

    C: Whiteside, D. Jordan

    Any recommendations on where to take my team also welcome.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Fahed Misho: Mannnnn thats a tough one. Low minutes last time due to fouling out. Both seem to fit ya pretty equally so i would hold Jokic for more upside. Youre def FT punt, but not in love with the FG drains ala Ariza, Conley and Lowry, so i think i might shop Ariza plus Conley and see if you can upgrade PG FG a little ala Wall maybe as a target?

    Fantasy ball never stops lol. Would appreciate your advice here my man:
    Drop KoQ and Carroll for any of the FAs:

    Noel
    Len
    Tucker
    James Johnson
    MKG
    CLee
    Mack
    Powell
    Curry
    Hernangomez

    My lineup:

    F-Draymond,Harkless,Thabo,Bazemore,Carroll
    C-Marc,Towns,KoQ
    IL-GHill,Griffin

    Thinking drop KoQ for either Len or Noel?
    And Carroll for James Johnson?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Hah yup, even through the Holidays! Yeah def like losing KOQ for Len. Ummmmm, DMC and JJohnson are close, i think i would hold DMC over the other waiver guys

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thanks Jb! Is Carroll my most droppable player atm? I want to know so I can scoop up Noel asap.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: Well KOQ would be my #1, but if you mean past him… i dunno, reke, the hawks, and DMC are all kinda in the same range. With that said id be good dropping any of the 4 to stash

    In a 10 teamer punting pts and FT

    Would you lose tony allen > activate Parsons and drop him for Mirotic, thabo, noguiera, henson, harrell, mkg, winslow, roberson, Len, aminu, smart, okafor, tucker, mkg
    Could also drop RoLo for one of above

    Lineup:
    G-Dragic,Bev,Lin,Holiday,Ariza
    F-Lebron,Covington,TBooker,T.Allen,Warren
    C-Whiteside,Deandre,RoLo
    IL-Oladipo,Parsons

    Trying to be dominant in FG, 3s, reb, ast, stl, blk, TO since already punting FT and pts.

    Feel like thabo and noguiera fits my build?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: @Tyler: Yup i see your punts and those make sense. Ummmm still really like Parsons… Allen can go, but guess if you lose him youre locked from adding anyone with Parsons back. That said i actually think winslow fits ya really well. I might take him and lose allen, lose parsons and get him, bug typically i would say twams should stash parsons

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: winslow over parsons then? How bout RoLo? Keep him? Or drop for henson, nog, okafor or len?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: Yeah just for this build tho. Id rather boring consistency of Rolo

  12. Mak says:

    my team is: giannis, hassan, kemba, KCP, sergio rodgriguez, tobias, gorgui, brook lopez, p bev, chandler parsons, brogdon, kilpatrick, nick young.

    the guy who offered it to me also owns: lowry, towns, boogie, crowder. is there a better counter? maybe even a 2 for 2.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Mak: Nahhhh def not giving up the best player in the deal. I would have to get Towns plus something and only if you had a need for a big

    14-Team, 9-Cat

    PG — Schroder, Knight
    SG — McCollum
    SF — Hayward, Crowder, Parsons, Harkless
    PF — Harris
    C — Towns, Jokic, Powell

    My Reb for the past week has improved slightly, thanks to Jokic and Towns and also Harkless. If Jokic could only control his tendency to foul, my team will be waaaay more competitive in that category. I’m still looking for a third C who can contribute 7-8 boards per game, if only Carlisle chooses to play Powell close to 30 mins! Jeez

    FG has also improved quite a bit, and maybe that’s because Schroder has been playing really well and I already got rid of the guy who’s been shooting bricks (Richardson).

    3PM, FT, Treys and Pts have been my money cats, but as of now, I could add Reb as my improved category. However, my Stl, Ast, and Blk just can’t seem to get better. I recently just acquired Knight via trade which I admit does not make sense at all (if I do want to improve my team), he’s just more of a stash (if he gets traded) and a handcuff to Bledsoe (if ever he goes down). I will still need a reliable pointguard and a center. I could trade Harkless for a PG or C (now that Parsons is back I think I don’t need Hark’s services anymore; and I just have too many SFs) and I could drop Powell for one of these guys:
    KOQ
    Sefolosha
    Lawson
    Brogdon
    Tucker
    Nogueira

    All of these guys will help address my problem cats man. What do you think

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Hah yeah that foul out game was annoying… Was looking great! Glad you held strong on Schroder! So D stats look to be the need. I think I would lean Nogueira for the time being, losing Powell. Def down to move Harkless if you can get anything for him

    Merry christmas! IT2/3 or PG13 rest of season? Any risk of the latter getting rested down the stretch? And what about his injury risk?

    I own IT2/3 but have a chance to flip him for PG13.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Big Red: Merry Christmas man, hope you had a good one! I would take PG13. Other than the broken leg then hurting his calf after it 2 yrs ago, nothing too big has popped up for him. I know he missed a few this yr, but I don’t think he’s too injury prone. I think it would be a great sell high moment for IT2/3 at that value

    Hope Razz Nation had a great holiday! Fresh off my football championship so I am stoked to go back 2 back with some hoops hardware. General thoughts on areas for improvement on my third place team…12 team, standard, h2h, 9 cats:

    CP3, R Jax, Barea, Frazier
    DeRo, Leonard, Porter, Harris
    Poison Goose, Jokic, T Jones
    Adams, KAT, Horford

    Brogdon just scooped up which was a bummer. Best of the wire are guys like: Mills, J Rich, Bellini, Smart, Henson, Speights,CoJo

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @John: Thanks man, hope you did as well! Damn good job man! Ugh football was rough for me this yr, had a 2 point loss in the semis one league, and lost 2 title games. Bleh. Still think J Rich could turn it back around, but he’s more a wait and see. That said, I’d nab him for Barea. And if he doesn’t look a smidge better this week, lose J Rich for streaming over the weekend. I think you have good bigs, great TO rates, so I would consider nabbing one more PG if you can make a trade happen. Or maybe trade RJax plus something for a better AST PG.
