The All-Star Break is here!  With skills competish, Mike & Mike in the evening, and everyone’s favorite – the Slam Dunk Contest.  It’s exactly what everyone needs during the grind of the regular season, even for us fans who are only nursing such injuries like Larry Drew-ophobia, general malaise, and fantasy bewilderment.  I have all of those symptoms!  Plus we all get four straight nights of not worrying about our fantasy rosters, nights off to spend with ladies (Valnetine’s Day just happens to be during the All-Star Break, who planned this?  Does Jared own the NBA?!), nights off to go out drinking without constantly checking box scores on the iPhone, and nights off to spend working on some Fantasy Baseball rankings…  Oh, and nights off to dig out our cars, sheesh this weather!  So with all that in mind enjoy the All-Star Break, get on twitter and have fun faux-titling the Dunk Contest throwdowns, and I’ll be back on Wednesday next week as we approach the fantasy playoffs.  Here’s what I saw last night in the few NBA games and a few injury updates:

Kendall Marshall - Ah to be young…  You might be the only guy available if you’re the only young one!  Steve Blake played the 2 and Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar started their ASBs a few games ago.  Of the four I guess we’re going back to Marshall with another big dimebag game.  Fantasy is reactionary! 14/7/17 with two treys, aka, a fat person going through the K&W line. I can’t help it if the Lakers keep changing their PG Flavor of the week!

Steve Blake - Speaking of Steve Blake, have you seen how he steps into a shot?

Steve Blake 3-pointer

Yikes that must hurt the danglers more than the elbow!  I guess that’s the new pain management philosophy… 13/6/2/2/0 with three treys.  Aka, a really REALLY obese person going through the K&W line.

Kevin Garnett - Rainbow line!  Even if the rainbow is 200 years old… 4/7/3/3/2 and second rainbow in the past 5 games.  Don’t misinterpret me, I don’t like KG at all, but hey, two rainbows in 5 is worth some deep league play.

Eric Bledsoe - Expected to return this season, woooooo!  Wait, that is an optimistic note?  I mean, I guess he could be ruled out for the year, but I was warning everyone that the original timetables weren’t going to hold true.  Had a lot of stash Bledsoe questions for the playoffs, I think he’s only worth the investment if you’re cruising in with the 1 seed.  No reason to lose seeding getting a 0 from him with a very uncertain return date or effectiveness level.

Andray Blatche - Ouch!  8/1/1/2/0 as his stat lines are what’s going Slim.  Hey oh!  Tristan Thompson gonna win me some pride back!

Carlos Boozer - Returned to the line-up for 15/10/0/0/0.  Now was that really Tristan Thompson?!  Taj Gibson went back to the bench for 16/5/2/0/2 and proves he will maintain solid value even as a the main big of the bench.

Joakim Noah - At this point, not coming close to a triple-double is a bad game… 14/13/7 with a pair of blocks.  Very fantasy studly with no Derrick Rose.  Only time you’ll ever hear Noah’s name and studly in the same sentence…

Jimmy Butler - Rainbow line!  And just so much better than KG… Duh!  14/5/4/3/2… and 1 TO!  His stat line is like a countdown to the All-Star break!  Shot 6-8, 2-2 from the line, very nice way to wrap up your pre-ASB stats.

Kevin Durant - Been playing pretty decent lately.  Even though he’s hardly owned, he’s a must-add right now.

Chris Kaman - The elite center production continues!  The hair follicle production… Eh, a different story.  19/10/6 with a block.  Must-own in all leagues.

Shawne Williams - Gets cut, comes back, plays 35+ minutes a game his third and fourth game back.  The Lakers front office is like, “Why can’t we quit you!”  15/9/0/1/2 with three treys isn’t exactly a Brokeback Mountain of stats, but needs to be scooped up in leagues deeper than 12 it’s-a-lookin’.

Jeremy Lamb - Racked up 4 steals.  But also fouled out.  Trying to play more like Lions than Lambs!

Larry Sanders - Had eye surgery.  And no, not the laser kind, the fix a broken bone kind.  Two surgeries already this year for the Colonel.  Get the triage going!

Ryan Anderson - To be re-evaluated at the end of the month.  Let’s hope that re-evaluation isn’t on Feb. 29…  We’d miss him for 2+ years!

 

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and enjoys the All-Star Festivities. We’ll back with daily updates when NBA regular season action returns!

    I’ve got the number 1 seed locked up and picked up Bledsoe. Here’s where I stand heading into the break.
    PG- Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, Steve Blake
    SG- Nicolas Batum, Tyreke Evans, Eric Bledsoe
    SF – Kevin Durant, Tobias Harris
    PF- Paul Millsap , John Henson
    C- Joakim Noah, Roy Hibbert, and Chris Kaman
    Any advice? It’s a 12 team h2h category league

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Nice, good call! Ummm, my advice is with Durant and Paul go ahead and put a down payment on a new car with your fantasy winnings!

      • Connor says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks! Any guess on ROS value for Kaman? I’d like to sell high but not if he gets solid minutes. He could average a double double with the time.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Connor: Yeah I agree, but a big if. I think a lot will depend on if they can move Gasol. In a 12-team I don’t know how much you can sell him for, I would hold and if the big minutes hold up just ride it out!

    • Moe says:
      (link)

      @Connor: wow , you have solid team.

  2. hamtime says:
    (link)

    please rank in order for rest of season: mayo, farmar, jordan hill, tony allen

    also – bledsoe and ryan anderson worth a stash, or am i just being overly optimistic?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: HIll (just have to believe he gets the minutes at some point), Farmar, Allen, Mayo. As above in the article, only stashing Bledsoe if you’re the #1 seed. Anderson probably not, nerve damage on a non-playoff team… meh

  3. Jeffro says:
    (link)

    Hey guys, in a scoring league(2 pts per assists), would you rather have Middleton or burks (Utah)? Also, are Nash and Augustin worth keeping, top free agents are burks, p Patterson, Danny green, starvin Marvin, and Cory Joseph. My team is well balanced ….
    Jennings
    Jam crAwford
    Beverley
    Gay
    Lebron
    Bosh
    Noah
    Vucevic
    Kaman
    Iguodala
    Augustin
    Nash
    Middleton

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jeffro: I’d rather Middleton right now. A little more consistent currently. I’d drop Nash for Burks though, Nash is such a fantasy cancer

  4. Wutang says:
    (link)

    My teams been pretty lacking in Blocks so far this year, making the difference between 7-2 and 6-3 weeks pretty much every week. With colonel sanders out for 6 weeks, who do you like to drop for Henson?

    PG: Paul, Augustin, Oladipo
    SG: Ariza, Iguodala, Ellis, Hayward
    SF: Harris, T Young
    PF: P Gasol, Aldridge
    C: Al Jefferson, T Chandler

    If you want to suggest some trades too I’m up for it! Had Pau and iggy lined up for cousins and jr but with pau’s injury that tanked quicker than the lakers…

    By the way, we got 20cm of snow today, and you’re complaining about digging out your cars? Try Newfoundland weather!

    As always, you’re the man JB!

    • Wutang says:
      (link)

      @Wutang: also, kamans still out there too

      Sitting in first by 5 games for some back story, 10 team h2h 9cat

      • Corey says:
        (link)

        @Connor: lol what kind of ad@Wutang: iggy or Harris for Henson.

        • Corey says:
          (link)

          @Corey: whoops didn’t mean to tag Connor

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wutang: Hmmm to be honest I don’t wanna drop any of those guys yet! I think you have to try and trade for blocks, or a 2-for-1 and pick up Henson. Gasol would be a good trade candidate but you’ll have to wait until he’s back. Ariza is really hot right now off that huge game, I think he could be a good sell high. Ariza/Gasol for a C? Hopefully you can float some offers over the ASB and either Henson or Kaman will be out there. Haha, well you’re used to snow, in NC anything that sticks is an apocalypse! Thanks man!

      • Wutang says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: great idea, glad I got a few days to make some decisions! That game by Ariza won me my matchup I’m sure it had to garner some attention hahaha!

        Yes it’s a mess here always, but that’s it! We got nice commercials tho Hahahaha.

        Hope you have a good break!

        • Wutang says:
          (link)

          @Wutang: oh by the way, reading some more comments – taj is out there too

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Wutang: Ohhhh I like Taj. Prob rank them Taj, Henson, Kaman looking at ROS, with Kaman over Henson short term. Lots of depth out there so I would def explore a 2-1 trade

  5. Shaft says:
    (link)

    JB,

    Think Kaman will hold any value when Pau is back? I think i remember him saying he wont play them together. In a shallow league am i better off waiting to see if Pau gets moved before grabbing him?

    Also, how would you rank these guys ROS: tobias harris, henson, kaman, Terrence Jones and Taj. I’ve got Harris, Henson and Jones now…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: Tough to tell, I think he “should” but iffy on if he “will”. I ranked Kaman highly thinking they’d go Kaman Gasol in the front line pretty often, but it hasn’t been the case. Kaman making my rank look not so bad! I think with minutes inconsistency and injury issues, I want Taj over Henson. So probably Harris, Jones, Taj, Henson, Kaman – but short term Kaman over Henson.

  6. Chow says:
    (link)

    In a dinasty mode and thinking about next year:
    Westbrook
    L. Stephenson
    Jeff Teague
    P. George
    Rudy Gay
    S. Ibaka
    Pau Gasol
    Al Horford
    E. Ilyasova
    T. Gibson
    K. Marshall
    D. Collison
    M. Thorton
    A. Kirilenko
    K. Olynyck

    What do you think about trade:
    Horford + Teague X Conley + Marc Gasol?

    Thanks from Spain!!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chow: You’d have both Gasols! I know that’d make your team your national team! :) Seems pretty even to me. Conley over Teague, but with Gasol’s knee issues I’m a little scared. Horford at least didn’t hurt his legs. That said, I’ll narrowly go Grizzlies side. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. SMLV1 says:
    (link)

    Varejao was dropped in my league. Who do I drop to pick him up? Or do I just leave him on waivers?

    My Centers right now are
    Hibbert
    Favors
    Gibson….as you can see I’m hurting there.

    I have way too many PG’s and could deff lose one

    Irving
    Dragic
    Rondo
    Knight
    Oladipo
    Augustin
    Blake

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @SMLV1: I’d drop Blake for him. Varejao’s injuries aren’t too serious and helps your bigs

  8. TR says:
    (link)

    I’m #4 on the waivers out of 10. Would you use a claim to drop Tony Wroten for John Henson? Or should I just try and pick him up normally if no one claims him? Or hold Wroten?

    I have 7 shooting guards, 4 point guards, and only 3 C’s and 3 PF’s

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TR: I don’t put much stock in waivers, I think I would indeed grab Henson. Are teams constantly using waiver priorities though? And do those carry over into the playoffs? If so, I might wait and try to nab Henson after waivers so you have a key waiver priority if you’re goin into the playoffs

  9. Steve says:
    (link)

    Hey guys,
    so injuries have totally turned my season to shit, i’ve currently got 7 out of 20 spots filled by injured players, including rose, horford and the walking bandaid varejao,

    i’m in a 12 team keeper league, we keep all players and just drop 3 or 4 as we go through the draft next year, so i’m pretty much looking towards next year,
    what do you guys think of trading my duncan and g. henderson for b. lopez and a. bradley?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve: Hmmm, I’m not big on Bradley at all, but getting Lopez for an almost done Duncan and iffy fantasy value Henderson… I think I might do it

  10. hamtime says:
    (link)

    was offered two trades:

    1. my ibaka for dirk
    2. my tyson chandler for his jamal crawford

    my team in 16 man competitive 11-cat league:
    rondo, westbrook
    lance, harden, t.allen
    paul george
    ibaka mcbob tjones j.hill
    jonas t.chandler

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. Nahhhh 2. Seems like you need Chandler still for some big man stats with Jonas only boarding and Hill still inconsistent with minutes, I’d probably hold there too.

  11. Patrick says:
    (link)

    i’m thinking about seeing who i can get for irving. you think his play will get better? i’ve got plenty of assists. am wanting to get milsap how much do you think he’s worth? i need steals and rebs.

    my team in a 14 team H2h 9 cat we have one slot for each position + 2 utility:

    lillard
    irving
    harden
    hawes
    vucevic
    ariza
    teague

    tobias
    illyasova
    henson

    or should i hold onto my current crew?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Patrick: Irving I’ve about given up on as well to bounce back the way I thought he’d play… I’d think you could get a little more than Millsap 1-for-1 but maybe not. Maybe a 2-2, I’m not a big Ilyasova guy, maybe throw him in to get MIllsap + someone who steals

      • Patrick says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: i just got an offer my kyrie for marc gasol and bledsoe, what you think?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Patrick: Hmmm, I think I probably hold Kyrie there, just too much injury risk and I don’t like Bledsoe as a stash that much yet

          • Patrick says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: you’re probably right, much appreciated.

      @Glenn: Yeah if you have an open IR I would do it

  13. Zar says:
    (link)

    Spencer Hawes was dropped in one of my leagues. Is he worth the pick up over Augustin, Bogut, Jeff Green, or Tobias? I think no on Tobias. I think my PGs will be solid with Irving, Lillard, Teague, and Trey Burke. It’d give me the big men of Nowitzki, Vucevic, Ibaka, and Deandre, and maybe Bogut if I keep him.

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Zar: Team looks really solid. If Green and Tobias are your only SFs then they will be tough to drop. I think you should add Hawes but I’m not sure who. Bogut missing games. DJ without a starting role. Tobias not living up to expectations. And of course Jeff Green being Jeff Green. Burke is no must own guy right now either… i’m having a tough time choosing who I would drop. I think Bogut is the most expendable for your team.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zar: I’d drop DJ as I think it helps your team a little more, I’m a huge Bogut guy though! Close between those two

      • Zar says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: :X That’s the move I did at about 3 AM this morning. I dropped DJ for Hawes. I didn’t want the guy who dropped him to add him again before he realized his mistake >> . Thanks JB and Slim :D. That sounds like a band name or something…

  14. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Well, it happened. My AD, Noah, Chandler and Ty for IT2, M Gasol, filler JR and… KD. Traded away so much firepower that I’m still uncertain who came out on top here ha

    Anyway, I needed block obviously with AD gone, so trashed Middleton for Henson. Do I keep JR for his firepower or do I drop for kawhi? I know kawhi is strong but offensively can he get me mid to late teens ROS?

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      And by Chandler, I meants parsons. Just went all in on that motha! All riding on how Gasol come back, it would seem..

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Trade is solid. I agree with the Henson add. I kinda of doubt Kawhi averages over 15 PPG the rest of the way. Probably closer to 12-13. I’m not a fan of JR and I would take Kawhi over him without much remorse. You also lost a fair amount of assists in the trade, just something to keep an eye on for now.

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @Slim: Nice bud, thanks. Well, I added Kawhi. A couple of games prior to the trade, I added S Blake, anticipating a loss in assists. For ref, here’s my squad: M Gasol, Nene, Vuc, Henson, T Jones, Kaman, W Chandler, J Green, KD, Kawhi, Blake, IT2, Oladipo

        Players available: Reke, Lin, Burke, G Green, Nelson, Middleton, Carroll, Zaza, Holiday, W Johnson, Foye, Faried, Frye

        Would be interested to get your take on what I’d need to round things out. With Pau’s return looming, Kaman seems to be the droppable player. Which is a shame because he’s custom built to thrive in that Dantoni O. T Jones has had some sub par games of late, but not sure if hes entirely droppable

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Lasandro: Agree with Slim. Any trade getting to KD is probably solid haha. And love the Henson add to get those blocks back. Also like getting Kawhi – nice! Agree Kaman is most droppable but a def hold right now. Holding TJones too. I’m surprised Jameer is out there, I know he’s cooled off, but I like him over Blake.

          • Lasandro says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Over Blake? Sure, Blake is injured and all, but dude is a dimabag, even with his stanky legs. I like that he gets big minutes in a high octane offense too. Nelson I owned majority of the season and I know of his value. What do you thinkof the rest of my squad JB? And any need to add a guy off teh wire. Reke when he’s on is solid.. but his injuries irritate me. Im thinking Im still down one high octane scorer and Im not quite sure how to get him without parting with KD. Already been offered Ibaka and Love, damn near a day after the trade ha. Good to know I have options should I need to bulk the squad up. I know you’ve been a fan of Gasol, just like me, but what’s your take on his ROS. I know them Griz like to play hard and im hoping Gasol’s competitive juices outweigh any niggling pains he may have. Essentially hoping for a lesser rebounding version of Noah

            • Lasandro says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: Burke is also there as a pg option, but man has he cooled off! I know you’re still a fan tho. Blake, nelson or Burke, is my current pg dilemma. Essentially, need all the dimes I can get after my big trade

              • JB Gilpin

                JB Gilpin says:
                (link)

                @Lasandro: Looking at ROS, I’m afraid Marshall gets run at some point and Blake doesn’t have the ball in his hands as much. I can see the debate and it’s close, but I still like Nelson and a few more 3s Jameer chips in. Blake does kill it in Stls though, so evens it out. Rest of your team looks good! Agree Asts is the big need. Still like Gasol fine, just needs to keep the knee in order, glad nothing on MRI. Burke I’m worried about – back injury has me thinking the season is taking its toll. Plus he doesn’t dime like Blake and Jameer so I’m fine letting him sit right now

                • Lasandro says:
                  (link)

                  @JB Gilpin: with reports tht holiday may be back within a week, I left Nelson on the wire and swapped Blake with jrue. Good yes?

                  (link)

                  @JB Gilpin: With Meeks now back, do I stick with Wilson C or pick Jodie up. I know we both love him, but dont you think Wilson’s slowly turning into a bit of a THRAGNOF? Meeks at least gets consistent steals and dude gets to the line. interested on your take

                • Lasandro says:
                  (link)

                  @JB Gilpin: Or is Wes J the best option for threes and multi cats ROS, with Kobe still out? Need an extra scorer who can potentially hit 20 regularly. Meeks was doing just that before going down

                • Lasandro says:
                  (link)

                  @JB Gilpin: G Green is killin fools the past few weeks also.. Willy boy with another inefficient game. Not sure if he’s any good without Ty running the show

                    @Lasandro: Yeah I think Jrue has the most upside I buy that. Chandler indeed is really tapering off the ancillary stats, I would get Meeks too. Like Meeks over WesJ. I think Meeks will be a more consistent scorer. Yikes, yeah 36 from Green tonight. I’d still take Meeks though, Green is so effing inconsistent, scored only 5 in back to back games just a few ago

    In terms of a short term add choose one Patrick pat, Brandon bass, olynyk, kanter, pj tucker, or Jordan hill? And also rank in order of a must add to pass. Thanks jb!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Yokev_o: Tucker is the only one I feel good about getting 30+ minutes. Tough to trust Pat Pat if Amir is ready to go. I think Amir lost minutes due to his ankle issues and who knows how close he is to 100% after the rest. If no Amir then Pat Pat is my #2. If Amir is around then I dont think Pat Pat should be on this list. I guess Bass is next but i’ve never been a fan of his fantasy game. Olynyk of Nazareth… I guess is next but who knows if he will get 30 min or 15. Kanter needs Favors to stay down in order to be useful. If Favors is down then hes equal to Patterson. If Favors is playing then I’m passing on Kanter. When was the last time Jordan Hill got more than 25 min? I don’t trust D’Antoni to play him. There isnt a player amongst them that is a must add but Tucker is the closest thing.

        @Slim: thanks slim! I just got Paul George on my squad off a recent trade which shipped out my vucevic, Rubio, and korver for George and iggy and I already got offered Drummond and josh smith for my Paul George and Jameer Nelson. Your thoughts?

          @yokev_o: Starting from the bottom, Don’t like trading away Paul George for that unless you’re desperate for boards and blocks. With Amir probably out Wednesday, I would go Pit Patt. If you’re streaming, you coul always get someone playing tomorrow first, then mvoe them for Pitt Pat after tomorrow night

    Hey don’t know if you’re still answering questions for this post but, I have too many PGs who has most ROS value? Reggie Jackson, DJ Aug, Steve Blake, I have all of them and Trey Burke just hit the market on waivers.

      @The Tristan Thompson Conundrum: Hmm… if healthy I would go Blake, Augustin, Burke, Jackson. With Blake still feeling pain in his elbow he feels like the least trustworthy to stay Healthy. Sucks but i’m not dropping him. Burke is struggling too much to leap ahead of Augustin even with an extra 5 minutes or so. Once Westbrook is back Jackson wont play as much as the others to be able to post similar numbers. I hope i’m wrong but I dont think he will be a 12er type contributor anymore. Its going to be tough to drop him for Burke given how they are playing right now but I would make that move.

      @The Tristan Thompson Conundrum: Always answering! I would try to add Burke as well, also for Jackson. Westbrook may be back as soon as Thursday so that’s the move I like.

    JBananas! wassup up player!? Whats your baseball sitch looking like this year? We just had a guy drop out of our Frequent Commenter League. looking for a guy who can keep up with us… Any interest? We’d love to have ya!

    If not, completely understandable.

    P.S. All star game was above average (thanks to Griff and Kyrie ) but everything else was complete shit. Dunks sucked… Kevin Hart winning mvp on 2-10 shooting was pitiful and they took out the bounce pass on skills challenge. BULLSHIT!

      @Prez: Yo dude! Oh mannnnn Baseball is coming! Unfortunately, I am not gonna hop in any more leagues, I even turned down the writer’s league! Just too much going on, esp. with hoops still winding down when baseball starts. If I wasn’t doing hoops I’d be there! Yeah Griffin and Kyrie were awesome, parts of the Futures Games was fun when Tim Hardaway and Dion Waiters started throwing up 30-footers, but yeah didn’t dig a lot of the rest. I didn’t see the Skills, no Bounce Pass?! Fail! Oh – will be doing pitcher profiles again though, so def come and comment on Monday afternoons when the season starts!

        @JB Gilpin: all good man, understandable!

        Yeah forgot about the futures game, that was good. That back and forth was pretty awesome. And the guy dropping the trophy was fun too… Haha

        Looking forward to your writing when basketball is wrapping up. I took a year off of basketball this year.. was deep in football and really wasnt feeling it. Much needed break man.. the string of fantasy sports when you play all three gets pretty frustrating.. im sure its even worst when youre writing for a site.

          @Prez!!: Haha dropped that trophy as bad as an Andre Drummond free throw! Yeah it’s very hectic, why I am now retired from football… PLus football makes me mad. Too much luck involved, really grinds my gears! Haha. And that goes for the writing side too, you can pull in all these stats and the complete opposite happens. Any given sunday! Now I can just watch as a Panthers fan and hope the refs don’t jack it up worse than against the 49ers…

            @JB Gilpin: agreed and agreed. didnt know you retired from football, thats too bad. I feel you on the luck part though, football is the worst of any sport. you can predict it in some ways but when i comes to gameflow and attack planning, we have the slightest clue. haha i still love it though! any given sunday.

            I wouldnt be suprsied if the panthers make it back, they got some talent over there, for sure.. young talent. cam takes the next step as hes been doing and you guys are lookin real good. Now, i WOULD be surprised if you beat the niners! ;)

              @Prez: Yup, just becoming too much and was a very frustrating year. We’re coming for the Niners! I hope that they rematch in a national game. Gonna be so chippy

    Hi JB,

    I picked up Jrue Holiday to stash, cuz I think he will be coming back soon, and dropped Harrison Barnes. I am not too sure what you think of this move. This move still can be changed cuz Holiday is on waiver and I got till the 19th to decide

    Thanks.

      my lineup is as follow
      trey burke / ty lawson / mike conley
      derozan / haryward / tobias harris / harrison barnes
      terence jone / kenneth faried / derrick favors / andrew bogut / al jefferson / zach randolph

        @Michael: I like the move, and agree Holiday should be coming along soon. With Burke waning, adding a possible premiere PG is solid. Barnes has been so inconsistent…

    I’m seeing reports that the Grizz are looking to deal prince and maybe allen for budinger and barea. If this happens, the Grizz would have to move James Johnson to the starting line up, right? If it goes down, you wouldn’t drop Tobias or T. Jones for him, would you? Kinda looking for some more steals and blocks.

    Also, someone just dropped Demarre Carroll. Similar question above, would you hold Tobias and T jones or grab Carroll?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Shaft: Hmmm, probably, but they could always start Budinger at the 3 too. Maybe JJ against big lineups, Budinger vs. small. JJ is kinda big for a sole-3, and with Gasol and Randolph that would be a huge front line. If it does go down, it’d be really close, but still probably holding. Yeah and hold em for Carroll too, I like Carroll a lot, but not over those guys.

      @mUshi: It’s very very close. If you’re going to be OK in scoring I don’t mind it, as long as the rest of your squad is solid I like it
