Three weeks in, and we are beginning to see who are the contenders, and who are the pretenders. Who are the members, and who are the weekenders. Who are the dependers, and who are the trenders! Wait what? I mean that we can see some squads are proving to be reliable producers, and others who need a lot to go right to be in the mix. It is still early in the season, so nobody can be counted out, but if you’re at the bottom of the barrel, you may want to consider those high risk/high reward sorta trades. Just sayin. Let’s take a look:

JB’s Random Commenter League Handsome Lads took week 3, beating the commish, JB Gilpin, in a 7-2 rout. He now (Handsome Lads, not JB) has a commanding lead in this league with a dominant record of 22-5. And the lads best individual player is Kevin Love! He’s doing it the right way, like my high school coach always said, the team way. Everyone is producing. Not only Handsome, but smart too!

All Country Ball Club. The race is heating up in this here league. The current overall leader is High as Greg Kite, with a record of 19-7-1, but last week was taken in dominant fashion, by Moskow Spartakers, who spanked the Brooklyn Ballers 8-1, who, just like the Brooklyn Nets, and most definitely not ballin’. More like the Brookly Nyets!!? Amirite?? Sorry. Moving on…

JB’s Random Commenter League 2. Now this is a more competitive league, with first and ninth only separated by 4 points. Week 3 was taken by Slippery Squirrels 7-2 over Royal Flush, and I don’t know if I’m more bothered by the odd sexual deviance that is implied by that name, or that my dirty mind automatically assumes “slippery squirrels” has a deviant undertone. Best bury that thought in scotch.

Razzball League 3 the Ringers. The Ringers league’s third week was taken by Beeeenga!, with a 7-2 win over Sin City (Pops) Sidenote: Does this imply that Sin City is the team chosen by Pops, or that it Pops in Sin City? Confusing. The overall championship belt thus far belongs to the Akron Chosen Ones. who sit 19-8, currently.

Razzball Hardwood Classic.The Classics had a 2 victorious victors tying for, ehm, victory. Both Mayo Clinic, and Smooth Like Butter won their week 3 with a score of 7-2. The supreme victory currently is held by Foot’s Flight Crew, with a glorious 21-6. Those Feet smell like Victory! Writes itself, really.

The Double Bonus Fan League There is gonna be a lot of finger wagging, because DIKEMBE SAY NO smacked his opponent into the 6th row, with a 8-1 victory. They say defense wins championships, but Dikembe is down in the rankings. The glory hole is being occupied by Draft Dodgers a 19-7-1, but Knicks Bricks and High Upsiders, 19-8, are breathing on the back of Dodger’s neck.

 

Ok Sports Fans, maybe this week we can discuss potential trades in the comment section, hmm?? There are 20 weeks left, so don’t fret if you’re at the bottom. Lots of time left, and the only way to go is up! Or sideways, along the bottom. But not down at least, right, fella?

    Hey Buddy What it do!!! I’ve been furious since draft cause I went to pick Klay Thompson and somehow it gave me the next guy which was West and when I went to call the commish, he ended up picking up Klay next.. A- Hole!! Lol.. Anyway West is horrible and he’s killing my team. Do you think it would be good for me to trade him for DeAndre Jordan if he will do it?? I might add another guy if you think I should but I don’t know anything about West, Is he a lot better then what he is right now meaning should I hold and not Panic??

      @Frank White: West is one of the better PF’s in the league, IMO. If you can get D. Jordan, I guess you have to think about it, but Jordan is not historically this good a blocker and rebounder, so he may not produce at this level for long.

        Thanks Man!!! Do you know if Millsap is playing tonight’s game?? If not then should I put in Pierce or Beverley??

          @Frank White: Frankie, there’s this thing called the internet…
          No Millsap’s not playing. Pierce is playing, but he had a horrid start last one, coming back from a groin injury. So start Bev until Pierce has a good game.

            Haha.. I checked internet and had no updates but it just pooped up on Yahoo that he’s playing.. would you start moo Williams over west?

              Just to let u know I check before I ask you but some of these guys talk like they got the inside source

                @Frank White: just breakin your balls, Frankie boy. It’s too late to say who I would start, the games are on. So I’ll keep quiet and be considered a fool, rather than open my mouth, and remove all doubt.

    High As Greg Kite is a phenomenal name. If they win the whole shebang I will pray every day that JB runs into actual Greg Kite with that shaved into his head.

    What side you like best? Curry/Horford or Love/Lillard?

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @AJ: Love/Lillard, if only because of the durability issue of Curry. Love is also brittle, you say, and you would be right. But if Love is brittle, Curry is absolute glass, he’s currently out with a concussion. And Lillard is only going to get better, consider that, if you’re in a keeper league.

      • AJ says:

        @Dan A: coo thanks, so if im trying to acquire Love/Lillard which 2 players from these would you offer up? I have Batum,Horford, Curry that have the most value, or do you think my request would get rejected either way

        • Dan A

          Dan A says:
          (link)

          @AJ: Horford and Curry is a fair offer, IMO. Give it a shot. Batum and Curry also fine.

          • AJ says:
            (link)

            @Dan A: alright so he countered horford and west for only Love, Wut you think?

            • Dan A

              Dan A. says:
              (link)

              @AJ: that’s a little pricey, IMO, but not outrageous. But it depends on your needs, and whether you are deep at the PF/C position. But keeping those 2 players isn’t exactly a punishment.

    PG Tony Parker
    SG Eric Gordon
    SF Nicolas Batum
    PF Tim Duncan
    C Al Horford
    G Kyle Korver
    F David West
    UTIL Wesley Matthews
    UTIL Andrew Bogut
    UTIL Trey Burke
    Bench Stephen Curry

      @AJ: I would do the trey dunk curry, if you could pull it off. Korver is another guy I would think about trading, Lou will hurt his value. Eric Gordon could also be upgraded. Kobe might be agood get for those two. I think he’s gonna wreck it once he returns. It might take more than that, though. Sniff it out. Good luck!

          • AJ says:
            (link)

            @Dan A.: Man these guys basically crapped all over my offers lol ..maybe I’m better off going to the wire, but doubtful, Oladipo, Vasquez, Valanciunas, Felton, Green, Amir J, Varejao, C Brewer, Barnes, Kidd, Shump, Henson, Louis to name many are available, would you swap any of my peeps for any of these cats?

          • AJ says:
            (link)

            @Dan A.: but naa man i know none of them cats are droppable for the wire, but thanks yo, good luck on your team this year

              @AJ: just keep an eye on JV. He hasn’t performed up to expectation yet, he could be a beast down the road. I have him stashed. If korver drops because Lou Williams is sharking his touches, he might be a pick up.
              And I hate being in leagues where the other guy will only trade with you if the offer is so one sided, he’s robbing you. Your offer wasn’t shit worthy. But whatever, your squad is good.
