One team.  Two broken noses.  Four bloody nostrils.  One protective face-mask company that has lost a client.

In case you missed it, in the battle of the oldest teams ever in NBA history (yeah, no stat to back that up, but pretty sure George Gervin played a few minutes in the third…  [Ok, ok, the Spurs benched all their old guys, whatever!]), both Nando De Colo and Matt Bonner broke their noses and got all bloody.  Bonner with his mask still on!  On both (De Colo, Bonner) you got some really good in your face camerawork.  I feel like both of those could become UFC moves.  The “Russian wrister”!  The “Livingston shoulder slam”!  De Colo gets mad props for coming back in the game in the second half.  Bonner gets mad props too for trying to come back in, but Pop wouldn’t have it.  Pop hates props!  Plus Bonner’s quote, “By tomorrow, I’ll either have a new mask or a new face” is friggin’ awesome.  Kinda have a boner for Bonner.  While De Colo is not a standard league option, with Tony Parker an elf on the shelf with a bad back, De Colo got 27 minutes 11/3/2/2/1.  Near rainbow!  It’s actually a pretty light slate of games looking ahead on Saturday, so De Colo could be a nice streamer for you in deeper leagues if Parker stays on that shelf.  But as Slim pointed out to me earlier in the week, they’re against Charlotte – a top-5 PPG NBA D, but his defense and boarding should be fine if you need a lil-a-dat from a PG over the weekend. Here’s what else I saw last night in fantasy hoops:

Cory Joseph – Just like De Colo, a solid streamer Saturday if no Parker.  18/4/3/2/0 last night and looked really good.  Need more of the threes action and a tad more scoring in that stream?  JoesphNOF!

Joakim Noah – Dude, he just yells all the time.  So effing annoying!  But it was Draymond Green who yelled on this one!  Sick dunk.  Mostly just really like that screenshot I got for the thumbnail… Anywho, we don’t care about annoying on-court Pero Antics from Noah when he goes 7/10/11!  Career-high dimes for Noah, who ironically has no Ark on his shot…

Danny Green – Has a little more long-term allure than Joseph or De Colo.  “Well, duh” you may say!  17/8/3/1/2 with three treys, and while it took injuries for him to get reintegrated into more minutes, it’s not like we haven’t seen production from him before.  No Kawhi Leonard or Manu Ginobili for a few more weeks, so he should have some staying power as a Spurs 3 in the short-term.

Shaun Livingston – Four blocks and broke a nose with his shoulder.  Pretty aggressive!  8/5/4/0/4.  After a 13/6/8/7/0 line his last game out, combine those two and you have Eric Bledsoe numbers!  Hah well not really, but we’re having fun here!  Still not a huge Livingston guy, but Deron Williams had to briefly leave with a knee-to-knee hit and if he misses a game then it should be even more run/more rock in his hand for S-Liv.

Alan Anderson – “My name is Neo!”  22 points in 30 bench minutes and led the Nets in scoring.  9-15 (2-3 3PTM) 22/1/2/1/0/0.  30+ minutes in the past two games, but the other one was against Philly and he shot 1-8!?  Against that terrible D!?  Moving on…

Andray Blatche – I literally can’t recall a single steal of his… 10/6/4/3/0 and Slim is starting to take off on me in our wager… We’ll have to make more next year to make up for this travesty…

Andrew Bogut and David Lee – Both sat out this game.  But it didn’t matter since it was against the lowly Bulls.  Both should be back soon.

Draymond Green – As linked above, nasty dunk in the start.  28 minutes for 9/7/1/0/2.  Harrison Barnes got 29 minutes off the bench of yet more uninspiring 11/6/1/2/0.  Well, semi-inspiring.  We’ll call it non-constipating.  At least a little bit came out!  Green and Barnes are both good fill-ins at small 4 and big(ish) 4, respectively, so neither really have any value should Lee miss more time.

Jermaine O’Neal – I had a friend text me, “Jermaine O’Neal is still alive?”  Barely!  26 minutes of 4/5/2/1/3 ball.  Like a mini-Bogut!  Even at 36, the blocks are kinda for real if Bogut misses more time.  Like Ronny Turiaf, BlockNOF!

Stephen Curry – Psshhhh what a bust this year…

Klay Thompson – 22/1/1/1/0/1 with three treys.  ThrAGNOF!

Carlos Boozer – Strained his calf.  Or his baby Bull, if you will…  Hurt himself jumping in the locker room?  Maybe he was on the plyometrics day of P90X.

Taj Gibson – Rainbow line!  Hopefully some leagues had some Taj streamed like I did!  Now these would obviously be shallow leagues… 26/13/4/2/2 and even in a shallow 10-teamer, I was surprised he was out there.  Welcome to the long term “Sam Cassell Phone Home” squad!

Jimmy Butler – 14/9/2/1/0.  Played 46:30.  If you get a chance to read a little bit about his upbringing, hard not to be a huge JB fan!  This JB is a huge JB fan!

D.J. Augustin – One of his worst lines in recent memory.  He looked good early too!  Tell Noah to stop racking up all the dimebags!  Not too worried.

Nick Young – Officially out 2 or more weeks.  Still no news if the Lakers will resign Manny Harris after letting him go after two 10-day deals.  I say bring in Harris!  Instead they re-sign Shawne Williams.  Yawwwwwwwwwn.

Omer Asik – Close to returning.  Close to not mattering again.

 

I hope everyone had a solid week, and have a great weekend Razzball Nation!

    First! h2h points league just dropped Augustine for Demarre Carroll (had only one sf and it was the baby faced assassin). Good move, bad move? Also have my eye on Wes Johnson and Jimmy Butler in the mean time but Carroll seems to be the hottest right now and he’s getting tons of pt. Also, would you add Larry Sanders? In my league im at the 4 Center limit which is dumb and I’ve got Drummond, Anthony Davis, Varejao and Hawes as my centers. Would you drop any of these guys for Larry Sanders or just wait to see if Larry keeps this up? The only one I’d consider dropping is Hawes or V once he gets hurt. Thanks.

      @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: Sweet! I’m glad the race is on! Agree Caroll is the hottest of those wings and like it. Still think ROS I like Augustin and Sanders more though. That said, you gotta hold your Cs, that is a dumb rule! Yell at your commish! Haha. If one does get hurt, def add Sanders.

    Slim says:

    If Shawne Williams steals any RKelly minutes it will be a travesty. Sad part is I think it might actually happen.

    I’m vs Livingston in the REL. Unbelievable week! Cory Joseph is going to lead my team in steals this week and if I’m going to win that category it will be all his doing. I think the kid has some staying power. Not 12er type staying power but he can defend both the 1 and 2 at a very high level. I think when everyone is healthy he still gets 20ish minutes based off his defensive abilities.

    Truth be told I’m not a fan of Blatche unless your dropping Tristan for him. He put up that decent line in only 19 min and there is a ton of upside if he could consistently get 30+ min but it’s tough to believe that’s going to happen as long as the Nets continue to play Pierce at PF.

    Players available in the REL this week. De Colo, Stiemsma, and O’Neal, not too shabby half way through the week.

      Slim says:

      @Slim: I thought I’d back up my claim that Charlotte is a good defensive team. They rank 5th in points against, 6th in FG% against and 4th in fewest FTs attempted. Surprisingly they rank 26th in 3Pt% against.

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @Slim: I don’t see Sanders burning it up in a points league…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: Yeah all 3 should be picked up. Since none really off big upside in the future, my last dollar isnt going there! Haha. Joseph indeed looked good, just don’t think he has huge upside in the Pop scheme. Do agree on the 20 mins though and a $1 REL keeper is looking really good

  3. mike says:
    (link)

    I’m tempted to drop Tobias Harris for danny green who seems to have more upside despite his pretty bad season so far.. Do you think I should hold off?

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @mike: Right now? Green I can’t predict ROS If you are in a good position hold I suppose? There’s different strategies to winning H2H leagues. I stream at least one spot that’s 7 extra players adding up to 7-12 extra games meaning more stats. What is your opponent doing? Is he streaming? Typical strategy I use is come thur/fri (cuz most gms are played then) I start strategizing what cats I need to make up and hit my opponent in the mouth when he’s least expecting it :-) Lol Someone else’s opinions may differ? Anybody else care to share?

      • mike says:
        (link)

        @matt: thanks for the input man! I like the idea of streaming.. Its tough in a shallow league where the last spot is pretty decent I guess.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @mike: IN a 10-teamer Tobias is looking droppable in a desparate situation if you’re close and need Green’s stats. But in a vacuum I’d still hold Tobias. Green also has a shelf life when Kawhi and Ginobili get back

      • mike says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: okay i agree with that. i drafted dg and held him for quite a while so I guess I just don’t want anyone else in the league benefiting from him..
        thanks man!

      @Brian: I’ve never seen that kind of thing for fantasy basketball but I imagine it exists somewhere.

  5. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Hey buddy… Remember when I made that trade I ended up dropping McRoberts for Trey Burke cause I needed assists plus all around play. Well I know I was told to hold him and stay patient but I was looking at the waiver wire and Alec Burks, Markeiff Morriss and Tony Wroten have been playing great. Plus Farmar and Wesley Johnson is out there. Would you still hold Trey with all these good guys out there??

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Depends on needs I guess. I dropped Burke this week bxuz I needed a steaming spot opened up. When facing active good teams in H2H you have to be willing to cut bait with under performing guys imho..Winning cats is more important, then making the playoffs. That’s my 2 cents

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Agree depends on needs, Morris is worth a look if you need some big man stats to round out this week. But i’m still a Burke believer.

  6. justin.g says:

    I have Tobias, Blatche, Bledsoe, Middleton, Burke. WW is Mike Scott, Farmar, Alphabet. Would you suggest any moves?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @justin.g: Where are you in the standings? I’m worried about Bledsoe if you’re not #1 or #2 for playoffs or in Roto. Then it would be needs, probably taking Scott, not a big Farmar guy

      • justin.g says:

        @JB Gilpin: I’m in 6th currently in 12 teamer. Trending up and been dealing with injuries all year

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @justin.g: Yeah I’d leave out Blesode where you’re at.I think you’re fine everywhere else so I’d get Scott for him. Go get that championship!

    Hey guys
    I’ve been debating something for a few days now and when that happens I come here to see what you guys think.

    In my rebound, double double league.. I’m being offered lbj and harden for A.davis and Irving and deRozen..
    I have love and big Vic ..

    I’m in first.. Should I do this? I was thinking about maybe asking for another guy to go alone with them .. I hate givi up deRzon there too…

    Should I just keep Davis? Seeing it’s a rebound league ? Or pairing up lbj with love and harden .. Could be pretty epic.. Yet… Davis is a beast! Non idea what I should. Do and the guy keeps asking me about it….

    Hope all is well guys l

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @Moes: Can u afford to give up Davis? If you can afford to lose the boards and blocks. If probably do it. But id try Davis/Irving Heads up for Harden/Bron first. If he’s hounding you for the trade he’ll probably take it.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Moes: In any other format I think it’s a slam dunk, but man, Davis is a top-3 or 4 guy I would assume. So how many categories is it? The normal 9 cat + double doubles? If that’s the case I’d hold, if a lot more categories that sorta minimizes the importance of DD I might do it

      • moez says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thx guys good call on both fronts
        im going to keep davis and irving
        the league is a 13 cat league lol
        OREB-DREB-REB and DD-TD-QD along with no turn overs.. funky settings but fun league!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @moez: Oh geez yeah that much boarding I def suggest keeping him too :)

  8. Baren says:
    (link)

    Whoa! Was just offerd Chris Paul & Kyle Lowery for Curry and Westbrook. This looks like a fairly lateral move but Paul and Lowery have a better playoff schedule. I’m comfortably in first, should I do this to solidify my chances of a championship? What do you think? Thanks!

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @Baren: Yeah..I don’t really see the point in moving 2 elite PG for One elite PG coming off injury (Paul) and another Injury prone PG (Lowry) I love Paul but I just don’t see the benefits of 2 PG for 2 PG How will this improve your bottom line?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Baren: I know it could help playoffs, but Lowry is so effing injury prone he could be gone. I think I’d hold

  9. Jake VZ says:
    (link)

    Hey JB, I just sent out some trades to a couple different people. Could you tell me which ones you like best and what ones you dont like? thanks

    1) My Harden and Henson for George and Monroe
    2) My W Chandler and Jackson for Parsons
    3) My Lee and Jackson for Teague and Vucevic
    4) My Lee and Jackson for T Jones and Noah
    5) My W Chandler, Lee, and Gortat for Drummond and Millsap
    6) My Harden, Lee, and Jackson for Davis, Dirk, and Barnes

    Not sure any of these will be accepted, but it’s worth a shot! Haha

      @Jake VZ: Damn that’s a lot of possibilities LMAO

      @Jake VZ: 1. Ehhhh, waffling, 50/50 2. Reggie Jax right? Yeah I think I’d do that. 3. LOVE it, fav so far. 4. Like it 2nd best thus far. 5. Love it too, about as much as 3. 6. I like it a lot, but not as much as 3 4 5

  10. matt says:

    If you can move Reggie before the break for that type of value you are the man lol

    What do you think of Courtney Lee? Think he’ll keep getting the Mins when Conley comes back? I’ve been getting solid production out of him, demare Carroll, and Livingston this week. My lil old bottom feeder streaming squad is 116-52/ 23 game lead 12 cat H2H. Key losses this year are as follows
    Bledsoe
    D Rose
    Jru
    Ryan Anderson
    Plus I was without Gasol for almost 2 months. These cats in my league have been talking mad shit because they are creeping into my lead. The difference is I am a razzballer and know how to value players and stack a roster regardless if I have PG’s or not. I only own Livingston and I have 89 assists this week. It’s all about getting the counting production from all positions. Hawes gives you boards,Blocks, Assists, occasional 4 treys per. Multi cat guys are your best friend in these formats. That’s why James Johnson needs 30 + per game. Bench Tashawn and FREE J.J.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @matt: I like Lee! I mean, as a 12er last guy deeper solid guy. I think Conley isn’t an issue but Tony Allen is. Pssssh, people talking smack while you have a 23 game lead?! I’d just be like “scoreboard!” haha. JJ would be killer in 30 minutes per! Biggest prob is just no room :(

  12. moez says:
    (link)

    hey guys me agaaain

    I was just offered

    Send Kyrie Irving, Cle PG from PG to H$$4
    Send D.J. Augustin, Chi PG from Bench to H$$4
    Receive Steve Blake, LAL PG from H$$4 to Bench
    Receive Damian Lillard, Por PG from H$$4 to Bench

    should I trade Irving for Lillard in this case?
    its a keeper league.. thinking long term…. hmmmmmm

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @moez: Nah I think Kyrie still has a tad more upside, and DJ isn’t too old either. Not sure if you have restrictions or what not, but I’d hold

  13. Li says:
    (link)

    JB
    Have a question for you. Had Danny Green on IR and now is active. PJ Tucker was just released and besides Green, the only other drop- option is Tony Wroten (miles plumlee/amir johnson have me frustrated but cant justify it) also mike scott who is staying put. I love Wroten starting to heat up and upside with poss. trades/ eventual MCW shut down. Is 3 weeks of Green worth the drop for the ever steady Tucker ( who by the way i noticed put up similar numbers w Bledsoe in the line up. What do ya think? Need to act fast.

      @itsadriel:
      Jrue Holliday worth a stash? Not if you’re playing in a 3 man league- and even then I’d probably keep him. Originial prognosis was about a month- meaning he could be back on the court very soon.

    Great bible pun!

    Ok my two day trial of Pierce is over today – he just doesn’t shoot enough to warrant a spot on my squad. I need good outside scoring and multi cats – kinda like another W Chandler, if you will. Carroll, Foye or Middleton?

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      Holiday is still available but it’s irritating not having an exact timetable. I just picked up Blake as my makeshift pg and he’s been great. But jrue would be so nice if only I knew when he’d return

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      On a side note, Vaughan trying to fck with oladipo’s minutes tonight (only 9min in the first 3 qrts), then he comes back and wins the fourth qrt and game for them. What exactly was he thinking there I wonder? Anyway, just thinkin out loud – we’re both rainbow fans I know

    • Lasandro says:

      My team for reference: AD, Vuc, T Jones, JV, Nene, Noah, Parsons, w Chandler, Green, Pierce, Oladipo, S Blake, Ty

      (link)

      @Lasandro: Yeah I dunno what the deal was with Oldaipo there… I’ll take Carroll right now. Loving his game. Then can readdress in maybe a week and think about stashing Jrue, but Carroll is a ride while hot!

  19. Lasandro says:

    This one warrants a seperate thread haha: been offered KD, M Gasol and Booz for my AD, Ty, Parsons and Noah. Holy Jeebus, that actually looks terrible on paper, as great as KD would be to own.. What you think?

    Thoughts about dropping Korver for Middleton, Nash , Augustin or Hensons upside? Thanks

    • Li says:
      (link)

      @AJ:
      Depends if u need Korver’s 3’s (roto league?). I like Middleton a lot of upside, but the Bucks rotations change with the wind. Last time he was killen it he disappeared for a month. Nash I would avoid (too old and too many PG’s ready to play) Augustin is a good option, again depends on your needs.
      As for Henson i’d say Huge upside – if he got 30+ min hes a 20/10 with 2 or 3 blocks. But zaza is back, Illasova is finally starting to play and then of course there is Sanders. Even with 24-30 min he has great offensive skill and can block and rebd. I had him until just recently dropped for resurgent Sullinger.

      • Jeffro says:
        (link)

        @Li: no brainer Augustin look at his game log over the past month(20 pts, 5 assists a night)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @AJ: I like all those options. Would stand pat for 3s, Augustin if you need some dimes help, Henson for big man upside

  21. Li says:

    Blockbuster Consideration…
    I really want Millsap. (Now my Bigs are nothing to sneeze at, but I love Millsaps all-around game)
    I’m thinking of going after Ty Lawson and Millsap in return for my Westbrook and either Drummond or Favors.
    Im stacked at PG (w/Isaiah, Wall, Teague, Trey Burke) and my other two bigs (DMC & Ibaka) i wanna keep).
    Long story short, what do you think of this deal? Am I making a trade just for trades sake? Lawson is fantastic, but think he outproduces Westbrook in 2nd half (if healthy?)
    Not even sure if he’d do it. Heck, Im not either. Just lookin for advice. Sorry for long post
    -Li (PS: points league)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Li: Nah I really like that move. Getting Lawson and MIllsap for Westbrook and Favors would be killer. Westbrook and Drummond is a little closer, Drummond is solid in Pts. I think Lawson and Westbrook will be neck and neck and rather MIllsap over DrummonD or Favors I think so I like it.

    The P90x plyometric day is no joke, but it would be crazy to see Boozer actually jump.

          @The Fantasy Dick: Eh a lot depends, Gasol would have to be moved. Decent add short term though, they have no C depth

    Sup JB… With the GM getting fired in Clevelend, you don’t think that will affect Varejeo do you?? I just got him in a trade and he played 22 minutes last night. Should I be worried??

      @Frank White: Nah I wouldn’t be, he’s the only good C on that team

    is s. liv an long term option (after that 15 min game) or can i safely drop for calathes as a short term fix? I need ft reb and 3’s

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @JMac: I’d rather use Calathes now, guaranteed minutes. If he’s still out there then ya you should have plenty of options when Conley is back and you need to move on from Calathes

    Jb- Im 25 games ahead in 12 cat H2H next 2 weeks im.playing bottom feeder teams. Should I grab Jru and Bledsoe off the wire and stash them now! I think I should on Monday before they are gone right? No other PG on waivers in the top 150 period, trash and I own 2 bums Livingston PBev

      JB Gilpin says:

      @matt: Hah yeah I’d drop Livingston after he got forgotten last night for Jrue

        @JB Gilpin: what about bledsoe?.He’s gonna be running soon it says on rotoworld

        • matt says:
          (link)

          @matt: I see why I forget Jru (fracture) Bledsoe Surgery (more rehab time correct? Since they were hurt at about the same time?

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @matt: The fact Bledsoe still can’t even run is ridiculously scary. A quick guy that depends on a lot of cutting and explosiveness still will need a lot of time. Jrue didn’t have surgery and can pull a Beal and be back fine. Always preferred Jrue when both went down

      @matt: Still think I’d leave Bledsoe out

    hey fellas,
    What do you think about Valanciunas and Favors for the rest of the season?
    Thanks!

      @mike: LIke Favors a good bit more but still like both

    JB…
    He went for it!!! I get Lawson and Millsap and gave up Westbrook and Favors!
    He didnt even haggle for Drummond. Jist wait till je hets 12 and 10 with one block of lucky from Favors every night! He musta saw “Westbrook” and started drooling! Lawson os a top 10 right now Millsap maybe top 15!

  29. Nikko says:

    I wS offered Drummond and Batum for Howard. It’s a h2h league with no FT or Fg%. And rebounds and assists are 1.5 pts.

    • TR says:

      @Nikko: I’d accept it in a heartbeat

      • Nikko says:

        @TR: because you offered it…

        • matt says:

          @Nikko: cuz it would be nuts not to accept it!

      @Nikko: I don’t think it’s “nuts” to not accept, Howard is a stud in that format, but I think you gotta take it :)

    JB….
    Remember me? I’m the guy who just a few hours ago was pumpd that I pulled off a trade acquiring Paul Millsap and Ty Lawson for Derrick Favors and Westbrook?
    ..Well, I just got off work and much to my dismay I see Lawson had left game- first with “a lower back strain” which afterwards was announced to be a fractured rib. I did alittle reading and it could take quite a while to heal. Maybe a month. Im so excited that I grabbed Millsap for Mr.(11/9/.8 blocks) Favors, that I didn’t immeaditly run and “Vote Against” trade- my only recourse- and one that would only work if no one else in the league votes.
    Now Westbrook is back right after the break, right? Well, who knows, I could get lucky and it might he a ‘fight through the pain’ issue for Lawson after a few games out. Either way trade doesn’t go through till Wed.
    But it IS fractured. A bone takes like a month to 6 weeks to fully heal. A penny for your thoughts…

      @Li: lol that’s horrible luck dude

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Li: Agree bad luck. I honestly can’t give more feedback, I don’t know how they’ll handle his rib injury. I will say I think Lawson and Millsap will kill in playoff time, and you’ll still be very happy with the trade. Even if Lawson does miss prolonged time, Westbrook might be end of Feb still so it won’t be that different in missed time

    B Knight or B Jennings ROS?

    Slim and JB!!! I just beat the 10th place, 6-2-1. I’ll take it! This puts me 7th place 1 game behind on 6th place. Looks like imma buy you guys some crown! My Team:

    Farmar, Foye, Augustin, Lilliard, Rubio
    Courtney Lee, Middleton, Hayward, Illyasavoa,
    Ibaka, Frye, Sully, Boozer

    Here is the wire:
    Mills, Marshall, Kaman, Budinger, Miles, Stuckey, Fournier, Webster, Andersen, Wroten , Hinrich, koBE, waiters, mayo, ginoblie, allen, vazquez, colison–Most of the guys are in a waiver rights. bargain.

    this coming week is going to suck! Since it will be a short week-MON-Thurs. Don’t know how to approach this. Im thinking about dropping farmer. Or should i just hold. Im playing against 4th place.

    Any thoughts or strategy for the short week! I am telling you guy, my team is solid and reliable! I am pretty sure all these big name cats will be benched for the NBA PLAYOFFS. so good for me for fantasy purposes. Had to pass up on wade for foye–since it just doesn’t mix in my categories with my team. All i need is 5 guys! I know i can still improved. Whats is lock from what i have been seeing—FT, 3PTM, Turnover, assist, and blocks. I agree w slim, i still need help on blocks to make it lock. i need shot blocker that can shoot fts. but no one wants boozer lol.

    Any thoughts?

      @ltee: Nice! Woooooo I could go for some Crown… I think I’d drop Farmar too. I don’t have any schedule in front of me, but def pick up a guy playing 2 games, I don’t think any team is playing 3 but not sure. BUt I’d go ahead and grab one of those guys playing tonight and stream that spot this week since every bit of contribution will be critical
