As we mentioned a few months ago, the Philadelphia 76ers D is bad.  Like D League bad.  They could use some D league!  At one point, they were close to 8 points a game worse than the the 29th worst team defense.  But with the Lakers having all sorts of problems, they’ve entered the bottom feeders with Philly giving up a league worst 109.9 a game, LA now 29th at 106.2, then third is at 103.8.  Suffice to say – soft D.  Kinda like in the word djent.  Any metal fans out there?  Or in Django Unchained.  The big benefactor last night was another huge game from Jeff Green, who shot 11-18 (5-7 3PTM 9-12 FT) for 36/8/2/0/2.  Should’ve been doing this all year!  Green had that even bigger 39-point outburst two weeks ago against the Wizards, so that’s two biguns sandwiched with cold cuts of bleh.  Kinda like a $5 footlong when you choose meatball but have to eat it later… Stevens said a couple of days ago that they need to get Green the ball in the post and in transition more.  I guess that equals making 5 of your 7 threes!  Hah.  While I do think Green will be better, and the return and minutes exansion of Rajon Rondo to help create better oppotunies will help, if you can get some really solid top-60ish value in a sell-high, run and do it.  You may be saying, “top-60, this JB is reaching too high!”  Heading into the year, ranked 63 in Yahoo and ESPN at 58!  And I had him at… Yeah I don’t wanna talk about it.  So getting draft day value at 100% would be very nice.  Much lower than that and I’m still holding. Here’s what else I saw on a busy night of NBA action:

Steve Blake – Wtf a trip-dub?!  Who had Blake in their triple-double pool last night?  Anyone?  11/10/15/3/0 shooting 2-7 with all of those 3-point shots.  Did have 7 TOs, but anything is forgivable on a trip-dub… So what do you do here?  Steve Nash was sitting out the second game of the back-to-back and Cleveland looked downright awful most of this game.  The crowd was even booing em.  Drew Carey rewrote the open to his former show to chant “Cleveland Sucks!”  With all the injuries, Blake is going to get minutes either at the 1 or 2 and I’m hopping him up to 12-team ownable re-thinking it from the assessment yesterday.  Not a must-add, but will help most teams.

Nick Young – We’ve had a lot of fun dogging him, but let’s hope the MRI he’s getting today on his knee comes back negative.  Never rooting for injuries.  Besides, a healthy Young we can all enjoy to make fun of again!

Wesley Johnson – 20/9 with two blocks.  Also 4 threes.  Is this Andrea Bargnani?  41 minutes and don’t think that changes, also bumping him up to 12-team worth.

Robert Sacre – “C’mon ref, that wasn’t a foul!  Let me play, I don’t care if I have 6!”  “Ughh, I guess so Robert…”  This was like a rec league game.  All the other Lakers were hurt or injured, so Sacre to the rescue!  Even if he did foul out!

Jordan Farmar – Great, another Razzball article all about Lakers… 21/1/8/2/0 as there couldn’t be a bigger burst of semi-fantasy relevance of so many players on one team this late in the season since… Well it would have to be some sort of trade most likely… Anyway, not too interested in the FarmarVille App.

Ryan Kelly – Slim is doing a song and dance all over the place!  26/6/0/1/0 with three treys.  Rather all the Lakers above to Kelly.  Hah, just kidding Sacre, ain’t touchin’ ya!

Kendall Marshall – “Awww, JB, does that mean you like me less than Kelly!”  Sadly, yes, Marshall is done-zo for right now.  25 minutes for 12/4/7 is nice, but shot 4-6 with all of em threes and don’t expect many shots or treys to continue.  Or 25 minutes when Nash isn’t playing dominoes at the senior center too.

Tristan Thompson – 13/8/1/0/0.  Well crap, but did only play 21 minutes.  Mike Brown just benched everyone in frustration.  Team is in such disarray…

Luol Deng – 1-10.  Ouch.  Raining cats and labradoodles!

Anderson Varejao – The one Cleveland contsant… Well, when he’s healthy.  Man, tough stretch for Cleveland fans!  15/13/5/2/0 and you likey that.

C.J. Miles – Stepped up given everyone else quit and put up 27/3/3.  So avoiding this team, if possible.

Anthony Bennett – 14/8/1/2/0.  Shot 6-6 from the FT line and like Miles, played well given how this game went.  Nothing I’m doing in most redraft leagues, but has me slightly encouraged in dynasties.

Victor Oladipo – No starting line-up, no problem!  20/4/3/2/0 – sure not his best line of the year- but shot 8-10, 4-4 FT and only 1 TO.  EfficientOladipo!

Kyle O’Quinn – Sheesh, shut down the block party because my parents just got home!  Wait, that’s the least cool fake saying in the world… 6 blocks in 20 minutes.  A near rainbow as well for 8/5/1/2/6.  Either blocks a ton or none.  4, 0, 0, 0, 6 his last 5.  The Pistons must’ve dropped some Irish Potato Famine smack talk last night, and the Irishman was having none of it!

Tobias Harris – Started, but only played 19 minutes.  #StartingLineupFail.  Got into early foul trouble and just didn’t get reintegrated.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Sadface.  Benched and got only 13 minutes.  Kyle Singler got the start?!  And did nothing in 32 minutes.  Not that KCP was doing much either, but camon!

Josh Smith Stole My Talent! – Like in Space JamJosh Smith was one of those minions and snuck into Brandon Jennings‘ body and they switched shooting ability.  Or wait, would it be Jennings accidentally stealing Smith’s?  This metaphor makes no sense, they both can be brutal shooters!  Smith for 11-19 and a solid line, BJ, well, sucked.  Hah!  5-23.  2-10 from deep.  “Hey BJ, it’s that far back for a reason!”

Rajon Rondo – Almost joined the Steve Blake trip-dub club!  8/9/11 with two steals.  Coming together right-nicely.

Jared Sullinger – JB loves Sully!  JB loves Sully!  Mulder loves Scully!  19/10/5/1/4 with two treys.  Long live the Philly terrible D!  But I like Scully, er, um, Sully.

Brandon Bass – Eh, not a big Bass guy.  Trout, mmm, love me some Mike Trout, who doesn’t?!

Tony Wroten – Makin’ those free throws!  7-8 from the stripe for the terrible FT shooting G, getting a 18/2/4/1/0 line and a trey in 29 minutes off the bench.  James Anderson got a little banged up, so Wroten might get some big run pending news there.  Still think he’s a big playoff stash with an impending Michael Carter-Williams shut down, gonna keep saying it until it’s true!

Tim Duncan – Rainbow line!  31/11/5/2/3 and still so smooth for a grandpa.

Tony Parker – Back tightness.  I think Shaq might have an icy hot patch for him…

Danny Green – Whoa, welcome back to fantasy relevance!  5 treys for 22/7/2/1/2.  46 minutes in the 2OT as well, which while not huge given 56 mins of PT, is big for Popp.  Popp was sweating it out this whole game.  Shaq might have some Gold Bond for him…

Mike Scott – Omg, omg omg omg omg omg!  So many highlights!  Haha.  Looked good out there, air-balled a three, but confidently too a pivotal one later in the game and made it.  16/5/1 with four treys and playing very well.

Paul Millsap – Well speaking of real highlights, this is one of my top 5 dunks of the year.  Nasty.  Sorry Greg Stiemsma, but the poster shop now has your rights!  Near rainbow of 26/10/3/1/2, three treys, a Sportscenter top 10, what can’t he do?!

Jeff Teague – Shot wasn’t perfect but 11/13 – likey likey!

DeMarre Carroll – Looked pretty flippin’ good out there.  Fringe must-own in 10-teamers.  22/7/4/3/0 with four treys.  If he was in your list of pickups as with a few questions this week, moving him ahead of most answers.

Channing Frye – Empty as nails 8/0/2/0/0.  Is that the saying?  Empty as nails?  Nails aren’t empty!  I’m probably wrong on that.  All over the place today.  Frye is such a ThrAGNOF.

Dwight Howard – Almost a killer rainbow, but has to learn to dish the ball!  34/14/0/3/2 and didn’t obliterate your FT% with 12-18.  Bet he wishes he was against Miles Plumlee every game!  Hey-oh!

Dante Cunningham – Whoa, where’d this come from?!  Always thought Cunningham was decent, but a spot-start rainbow-and-a-half stuffer?!  18/8/3/3/3 shooting 9-13.  Kevin Love should be back by the Wolves next game, but is interesting to note Cunningham has some nice potential should Love no longer be in the air.

Ronny Turiaf – I Quoted yesterday that he’s at 2 blocks a game the past 7, and another 4 last night!  BlockNOF!

Brandan Wright – Even though he’s not blocking, double-digit scoring in the past 3 capped off by 17/4/1 last night.  He’s tall and lanky, so think the blocks come.  “If you build it, they will come!”

Nick Calathes – Mr. Alopecia!  16/5/5/3/0 but did rack up 6 TOs.  Hey, his hair is falling out, sometimes some passes get away from him too!  Really, really encouraging what he’s doing given the role.

James Johnson – I love, LOVE, that he got more minutes than Tayshaun Prince last night.  25 for 17/1/1/0/4 with two treys.  Increasing minutes in 4 straight with 22+ the last 3.  Coming around on this with the solid impact again last night.

Khris Middleton – Give him starting minutes, stats will come!  25/5/3/2/0 with 5 treys in 44 minutes.  It’s ebbed, it’s flowed, right now it flowin’!  Grab him where you can and enjoy the ride until Drew screws it up.

Larry Sanders – Whoa, he can play basketball!  12-19 FG for 25/15/2/1/1.  Breakout alert!  Another guy to grab, but definitely everywhere you possibly can.

John Henson – Anddddd, only 17 minutes for the returning Henson.  Still like him though.  Ersan Ilyasova looked awful then hurt his back, all of which helps keep the Henson upside hopes alive.

Randy Foye – Shedding the ThrAGNOF label like a snakeskin!  20/3/6/1/4 in a near-rainbow.  4 blocks?  Really Milwaukee?!  How is Randy Foye gonna be able to rack up 4 blocks on ya?!  Geez!

Jonas Valanciunas – Some blocks!  Finally!  If you build the tall players, blocks will come!  I’m so “court of dreams” today… 12/11/0/0/3 in only 21 minutes after racking up 3 fouls in 5 minutes in the first half.  So not worried there.

Kyle Lowry – Well, so much for knee concern…21/7/8/1/2.  Having a preposteroni year.

Kings – Took 51 team FTs.  The whole team gets an anti-flopping letter the next day.

Blake Griffin – Season-high 43 Pts in a huge 43/15/6/0/0 game.  Not enough to beat the Heat!

 

Next Game:  TNT OT night!  Spurs @ BKN then Yahoo highlights for CHI @ GSW.  It’s a good night for streaming, so ThrAGNOF with some Danny Green or Mirza Teletovic in the early game!  Be sure to set your line-ups and good luck tonight!

    Sup JB, been offered Demar and either West, Tyson or RLo for my Parsons and Oladipo. What you think?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Not a chance. I like Parsons over DeRozan (more 3s and a massive upgrade in FG% with a small downgrade in FT%) and Oladipo over any of those other 3. West is no good. Tyson is mediocre, you can get a better big with Parsons or Oladipo. RoLo is the ‘last big on your team’ kind of guy. Good when he’s cheap but not consistent enough to be worth a whole lot.

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @Slim: agreed mate! In fact, declined the offer straight after posting my question. I’m gonna try and unload j green after his big game, somehow…

        While I got ya Slim, I picked up Pierce for the next two games and will then decide between him, Carroll, Foye and KMidd (all on wire) for rest of the month value. Thoughts?

        • Lasandro says:
          (link)

          @Slim: this fella does have Dwight. Worth a run at him with parsons or Oladipo in a pack? Don’t think his Wall or Millsap are in play unfortunately, unless I were to include my Ty in a deal

          • Slim

            Slim says:
            (link)

            @Lasandro: If FT% is a category then that has to be considered when taking on Howard. There is no absorbing his FTs, there is only punting the category. I like Parsons more than Howard so I’m not sure about that one. Oladipo has issues with inconsistency, poor FG%, and high TOs. I could see him being the biggest piece of a deal for Howard. Wall is better than Lawson but the difference isn’t big enough to offer too much more in a trade. I think stick with Lawson unless he’s willing to keep the price between them close.

        • Slim

          Slim says:
          (link)

          @Lasandro: They’re all pretty good options right now. I’m leaning Carroll but it’s tough to ignore what Foye is doing. Pierce is playing well too. That’s really difficult since they are all so close. But since I would take any of them without too much concern then I would just continue to stream. If one or even two get picked up the 3rd won’t be a bad consolation.

    That last 3-pointer that Mike Scott made was quite the trick shot. His consistency with so few minutes is amazing. Just wish he could get a steal or a block per game. With the way Millsap, Carrol, and Scott are all playing right now it’s got to be one of the most under rated forward combos in the league.

    Major changes in Cleveland have got to be coming. I have no idea what’s going to happen but I think it’s worse than the Knicks, Lakers, Bucks, and Nets situations. Their offices must be getting flooded with calls for trades right now.

    I hate Nick Young enough that I’ll take the flier on RKelly before I run Nick Young out there on my team. The Lakers are so much better when Nick Young isn’t playing. It’s a night and day kind of difference. I think Steve Blake should be owned everywhere after last night. The original dime bag dealer with plenty of 3s and steals.

    I knew I liked Larry Sanders for a reason coming into the year. For anyone worried about the Bucks bigs stealing his minutes, hopefully this will ease your concerns. That and 5 straight games with 30+ minutes and easily top 50 stats.

    No love for Cory Joseph? He’s a good little player. A mini-Beverley if you will. 8/3/4/3 in 28 min. He gives steals and blocks, a few assists, low TOs, good percents, the occasional 3-pointer. He’s been a top 150 9-cat guy for a month now. He’s starting at the 2 and before last night was getting more minutes than Mills and about equal to Belinelli. With TP now in the toilet, there’s some high brow humor for ya, Joseph might just get a bigger offensive role tonight. Admittedly he’s more of a deep league guy with upside.

      @Slim: Go Mike Scott! Cleveland – a total disaster. I’m still worried about Blake’s elbow and 3-point shooting. But the fact he threw up 7 is encouraging. Sanders looks like a must-own over Blake though. Haha interesting on Joseph. Definitely helps Parker is hurt on top of Ginobili. right at the edge of top 150 sounds about right, it is the Spurs and Popps funky rotations!

    Sup fellas.

    I’m cruising in first place but plotting a deep playoff run.

    Do you think Jeremy Lin will go all Linsanity down the stretch? He’s a deeply flawed player but he’s my wild card, a lotto ticket. In h2h he can catch fire & single-handedly win you a week.

    I hope Houston trades him.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @beatnik: Nah, I mean I think a game or two here and there, sure he’ll have some nice ones. But never consistent. Agree he can help you win a close week and worth holding, but doubt the Rox trade him

  4. Frank White says:

    Sup JB… I know what a rainbow means but I was wondering since PG’s don’t usually have blocks then why don’t you count 3 pointers as the 5th spot??

    • Slim

      @Frank White: Not a bad idea but it would mean far more rainbows. How about another term, somewhat related but different… Hmm… I’m open to ideas.

  5. Bob C says:

    Hey JB – would you prefer Henson or Sullinger for ROS? My bigs are DHoward, JonasV, LARRY SANDERS, and Terrence Jones who qualifies at PF.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Bob C: Boards and Blocks look solid. I think Howard makes you punt FT% no matter who you pair him with. I don’t mind Sullinger over Henson here. Henson has unquestionably more talent but Sullinger has a nice, well defined, role.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bob C: Agree since your blocks are locked up, Sully is my pick in that case

  6. Jake Van Zuiden says:
    (link)

    Hey can you rank these guys best to worst ROS? Henson, Ilyasova, Redick, Blake, Burke. Not sure who’s worth keeping. Also do you think Bledsoe needs to be stashed? Thanks!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Jake Van Zuiden: I don’t think Bledsoe should be stashed unless you know your playoff bound. Too many question marks to rely on him to get you into the playoffs.

      Ranking guys who put up opposing stat lines is really kind of pointless. If I needed boards and blocks then I would go with Henson. Ilyasova is definitely the last guy on this list for me. The Bucks are too crowded and I think he’s the odd man out. Redick doesn’t do much outside of 3s and points and he has too much competition for minutes which will get worse when Chris Paul returns. Blake vs Burke is pretty close and they give similar stats. Blake is the hot add and Burke is struggling. I’m still leaning Trey Burke but it’s really close and I wouldn’t fault you if you went Steve Blake instead for assists, 3s, and steals.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Agree with above, Bledsoe last, Ilyasova second to last by a pretty wide margin. Buying into to Blake somewhat, probably Burke Redick Blake for me needing guards Henson the clear F/C choice

  7. Shaft says:

    JB and Slim,

    I have a pretty big lead in my league (8cat h2h 10-teamer) and thought i was sitting pretty, but im starting to worry that the lower end of my roster isnt going to get it done down the stretch.

    My team is: Durant, Ibaka, Aldridge, Conley, Kemba, Knight, Korver, T Jones, Tobias, Henson, Chandler and Marshall

    So ive got a couple questions for you:

    1. Kendall Marshall- obviously droppable at this point, but im not sure who to grab. i obviously liked marshall for his assists and threes, and there’s no one who i can see to replace that. I debated on Blake for too long and now he’s gone. I know JB likes Chalmers, but not sure he can fill my dime void. Also could go felton, Foye, lin or Nash (but dont know if i could tolerate his DNPs). Probably leaning chalmers i guess
    2. Tobias Harris – i know he has so much upside, but how much longer do i wait for it? the lack of stls and blocks is frustrating. i thought the shift to SF might help him get back in the groove, but he’s been playing even worse. I know he’s not droppable, but i dont think i can move him for anything
    3. Henson – sucker for the upside, but keeps getting hurt and has to deal with drew’s rotations and a crowded front court. and i assume having ZaZa come back isnt helping… the only big guy on the wire that’s interesting to me is Sully
    4. wilson chandler – was shooting ice cold once he came back from his hammy, but the other stats were there so i tolerated it. now he’s shooting better, but not boarding and steals and blocks are way down. i dont really need the scoring, so is there a better option at SG? Foye, JR Smith, Meeks, PJ Tucker, Giannis?

    Sorry for the thousand questions, just need to either make some moves or get talked off the ledge. Thanks guys!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Shaft:

      1. It’s between Chalmers and Foye for me. I’ll go with Foye. Assists are about the same but he is giving a whole lot more right now. And yes, easily over Marshall.

      2. Hold and pray for Orlando to unload their vets. He was solid with Vujevic down and I think his best position is PF. He’s got the size to defend it and the quickness to win most match-ups.

      3. Henson vs Sully has been a common question. The problem is that your really not a big shot blocking team and Henson is significantly better. If he gets the minutes. With a big lead I would hold and see what happens.

      4. I’m holding onto Wilson Chandler over those guys. He’s capable of so much more than those options. Except Foye perhaps but if we add him for Marshall then it comes down to Wilson vs Chalmers and I’d take Wilson.

      • Shaft says:
        (link)

        @Slim: Thanks Slim. I think im with you on all of them.

        i was also thinking about some potential blockbusters and as much as id hate to actually do this trade, what do you think about this :

        my durant, harris and knight for his boogie, lawson and kyrie

        Dont know if the other guy would even do it. but figure id ask your thoughts if it made sense. would then probably drop marshall for sully instead of foye.

        • Shaft says:
          (link)

          @Shaft: Also with the news that Swaggy P is out 2 weeks with a swaggy knee, does that make marshall rosterable or still a drop? in a 10-teamer

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: 1. Agree Foye has since added a lot of multi cat lately. Ride the hot hand over Chalmers.
      2. Agree hold and pray! Haha
      3. Agree, Ibaka gives you iblockas, but not a big source of blocks anywhere else, I’d hold Henson. But I would say I’d gab Sully over Chalmers or Foye though right now, even though it doesn’t fit the stats you need to replace from Marshall.
      4. Nah hold Wilson there.

      I wouldn’t trade Durant in virtually any trade. Just so much better than the field. And I still think Marshall is droppable, he can’t fit as a swing 2.

      Any time!

    I smell a rougb ROS for kyrie..put out two different offers getting rid of him. #1 for dragic and # 2 for blake griff.

    You like those returns?

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @allen: They are both selling a little low but if you think Kyrie isn’t going to live up to his top 10-15 billing then I don’t see a problem with it.

      My only suggestion would be to aim higher first. Make sure you can’t get Ibaka or Wall with Kyrie plus something replaceable then go after those 2. Obviously selling after last night is not advisable. Your best bet is to wait for a big game or 2 then sell.

        @Slim: Well here’s my roster in default yahoo 12 teamer…

          @Allen: obvious weaknesses are TO’S, FG%, FT%, and 3PTM.

            Slim says:
            (link)

            @Allen: Jordan is really your only FT killer so I wouldn’t worry too much. It is what it is. TOs are high because you have so many great players. Not much you can do with that either. 3s look OK, I wouldn’t worry to much about that. FG% is a killer and it’s not going to get better. Hayward and Butler destroy it and Jordan doesn’t really help with only a few shots per game. Fixing that will take a major overhaul and I’d just punt it. I think focusing on your advantages and taking as many counting stats as you can is the way to go. Your team looks very difficult to defeat in a 12er even with your issues.

        • Slim

          Slim says:
          (link)

          @Allen: I don’t like trading Kyrie without getting a PG back. I think your assists will be too low. It’s a really good team… except maybe Tristan… I’ll move on. I like the idea of adding another big though. Bradley is another one I’m not too sure about. He has a pretty limited fantasy game.

          My advice is to hold onto Kyrie but if your really sick of him then I would offer him plus one of your bench guys for Dragic, or really any very good and healthy PG, plus a solid big. Preferably one that blocks a shot or 2.

            Yeah my team is pretty good but ive been stuck in 5 th for a couple weeks..i think due to playing tougher part of my sched.
            Thanks slim!

              @allen: Razzball for the win! I like Dragic a ton. I wouldn’t mind that trade for Kyrie.

                @JB Gilpin: ive been holding out hope on Tristan but is it time to cut him for farmar or wes young??? Thats the best on wire

                  @allen: Yeah I like Wesley and P Bev more.I think Wesley right now with all the Lakers injuries

    Got Giannis on hold while I’m coasting to the playoffs. Should I just keep praying he breaks out post-All Star Break or is it time to look elsewhere, like at P. Bev, R. Kelly, Middleton, or B. Wright??

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Giannis Alphabet: P Bev and MIddleton are close for me… I think the way Middleton is playing and constantly starting I might grab him.

    Grade this trade: Lillard/Ibaka for Lawson/Millsap

    which side wins?

    H2H Points league, 9-cat.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Nate: As much as I love Ibaka, I have to take Lawson Millsap on this one, if you can handle losing blocks

    Hey jb is it safe to drop dcollison? I gotta pick up demarre.. I was also wondering if I should give danny green a second chance at the expense of Tobias, Frye or jv?
    Thanks man!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @mike: I hate Frye, have no problem rolling the dice on Green esp. with Spurs injuries. Yeah, grab DeMarre for Collison, Paul will be back Friday or Sunday last reported

    Pick 2 out of the 4: Mike Scott, Markieff Morris, Steve Blake, James Johnson as in long term through the playoffs.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @yokev_o: I love Scott, but gotta throw him out. I think Markieff is in for ya. Then depends on needs, probably Blake bc more minutes

      • Yokev_o says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: just heard the news about Swaggy P out for 2+ weeks scoop Wesley Johnson for James j?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Yokev_o: Yeah I’d do that!

    Hey JB and Slim

    What do you think about trying to trade away Jeff Green for Klay Thompson?

    And separately …. I hate the bucks. Drop Henson or Ilyasova for Kawhi. The answer before was Henson…but neither can stay healthy/consistent. On the other hand, the Colonel returned!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zar: Oh man… I hate Klay Thompson but is a nice return. Need help in treys? Ehhh even still, I know it’s getting draft day value back for Green I just really don’t like Thompson, would go for someone else. Everyon hates the BUcks! Haha. You looking solid for the playoffs? Don’t mind a Kawhi stash if you can handle a 0

      • Zar says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: 2nd place, pretty comfortably in 2nd. I can afford it. I’m guessing Henson is the drop?

        Who would you recommend targeting for Jeff Green? Maybe Dragic instead?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Zar: Dude would love Dragic if that owner takes it, but doubt he would. Maybe one of your PGs and Green for Dragic? I’d drop Ily instead of Henson for Kawhi

    Which trade scenario do you like best?

    A) Lillard, Love Ibaka for Lawson, Durant, Gortat
    B) Lillard, Love, Ibaka for Lawson, Durant, Terrence Jones
    C) Lillard, Love, Vucevic for Lawson, Durant, Gortat

    I would be giving up Lillard, Love, etc.

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @Jimmy: Um, sorry mate, but if this other party had any sense at all, he’s not trading KD away. Let alone WITH Lawson. Just saying it as it is.

      Now, if you DO manage to make any of those trades (obviously C would work best in your benefit), that may be the most lopsided blockbuster trade I’ve seen this season!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Jimmy: A – like it b – like it about equal maybe a tad more c – like this one the most. If you could get KD its a win. I dunno @Lasandro: about “most lopsided” but def helps you more!

        • Lasandro says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: Ha, I was way too incredulous there! It’d just be such a win for @Jimmy if he pulls this off. Do it man!

    JB, your thoughts on me trading away my Parsons and J Green for Trillsap, then grabbnig for Foye or Carroll off the wire? KMidd is there too

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: OH mannnnn. I do really like Carroll… Seems about dead even to me. Love Millsap but really like Parsons too. Coin flip answer! If you’re a Hawks fan do it!

      • Lasandro says:

        @JB Gilpin: Haha nice man, thanks

    Hey man. What do you think about RegJax and TrisThompson for his DJordan? I need to improve my defensive stats and field goal, I never win FT, and am PG heavy. Not sure if this will happen but he’s in desperate need of PG stats. If not RegJax and TT, I also have JNelson and JGreen as chips he may be interested in. Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Def would do that trade for Jordan if he accepts. I dunno if I’d do Green, well maybe, if it helps I could see it. Nelson and tt would be good too

    Hey I don’t know if this is a bad idea or not but i need your quick take.

    I am thinking of dropping joe johnson for Mike Scott. The guy has been rolling, even off the bench. Joe Johnson has been struggling mightily. what do you think?

    • Michael Pan says:
      (link)

      btw I am in a 9 cat roto

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Michael Pan: I hate Joe Johnson and love Mike Scott. There might not be too many people to support it but yeah, I’d do it

    Hey JB. Would you do Taj Gibson for Jimmy Butler? Big fan of Taj here, but I only have one SF (Tobias Harris), I’d love to add some depth to my team. 9-cat, H2H league.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Daniel Bryan: Oh man, after tonight it’s tough to pull the trigger on that! Since Boozer’s injury was a fluke in pre-game I think I would take Butler to help your roster comp

    Jordan hill, mike scott, or ryan kelly? Or stash kobe?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Fantasy Dick: I’d take Hill there. Not a big Ryan Kelly guy, and while I like Scott, Hill has better upside/more stats. Expecting to play tomorrow vs. terrible 76ers

    How do you feel about giving of Howard and Lawson for Jefferson, Ariza and Westbrook? It’s a H2H league with no FG or FT%. Rebounds and assists are worth 1.5 pts in comparison to 1 for the others stats. I’m in first right now and trying to think about playoffs

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nikko: Hmmm I don’t think I like that one. No FT% makes Howard about as good as Jefferson if not a tad better, and Lawson will out-do Westbrook in Asts when RW is back. So I think I’d hold
