The Razzball Hoops Pod is back, and on today’s show, we have actual afternoon games from yesterday to catch up on!  We hit on a few of the MLK games that went down early yesterday, plus the big storylines from over the weekend including big outings off the bench from Kelly Olynyk and Doug McDermott.  We then play an Academy Award edition of Can We Make Slim Look Stupid, then preview tonight’s games with our 30-point challenge picks.

      Gonna ride my hot streak of 1 in the 30pt challenge and stick with what will be the most entertaining game of the night between MIA and HOU. The Johnson Bros should get heavy burn and my man TyJo is gonna smoke that great Gordon D on his way to 30 👌🏾

    Hi JB and Slim, Jon Leuer and Nikola Mirotic are on the wire. Would you pick up any one of them? Thanks for the help.

    • JB Gilpin

      @Wen: Hey man! Ummmm, more interested in miro, but in 10/12ers, both are tough to hold in the lows. Leuer is kinda blah even when he’s right

    14 cat roto, doing well in 3s and blks, needing Obrds and scoring:

    Trade my Harden, and any 2 players outta: Crowder, Jrue, Gorgui orTobias

    for

    Butler, Wall and Kanter?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Lasandro: Hmmmmm. So my picks for the trade would be Harden/Jrue/Tobias I think. For Butler/Wall/Kanter. Ehhhhh it’s reallllly close, and you make up the FT volume. I think with rebounding a need, I like it, but barely, it’s really really close.

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @jb gilpin: interesting. You’d rather give up Jrue over Joe? You know crowder’s elite stls from last season aren’t prob happening this year. His 3s are unbelievable tho.

      Both wall and Jimmy should be close to first rounders in my roto format right? I’m tryna convince myself of letting harden go.. and Kanter should continue being a dub dub threat moving forward? His Obrds and volume FGs with great %s everywhere would really help

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Yeah I think so. I like Crowder a ton in Roto and think he helps your rebounding cats a smidge better. yeah Kanter fitting OREB was the only reason I convinced myself I liked it

    Jokic for 30. He can do it

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @giantsFTW: Nice, back to back for Jokic maybe!

  6. Niko-Cola Kevin says:

    Kawhi for 30. I just hope he can get more than 10 (stupid Paul George)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Niko-Cola Kevin: Hah well you and Slim went down on the PG13 train, hopefully I don’t take you down with me on a Kawhi whiff!

      • Niko-Cola Kevin says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: we got it!

        • JB Gilpin

          @Niko-Cola Kevin: Hell yeah man! Updating the board this morning, so pumped to catch Slim again, FINALLY

    Bro lo for 30. Would you trade jru holiday and tyson chandler for george hill? 12-team standard 9-cat league and i’m punting ft%.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pbomb: Nice pick!

      Hmmmm, it’s close, nice to open up a roster spot. I think I’ll lean no though, unless Chandler’s REB are pretty meaningless to you (which they might be if you’re a Ft punt)

    I think the Poppycockers(2-9 since Dec 30) and the Sixers (6-2 in the same span) have switched places in the Majestic Atlantic Division (Celtics,Sixers,Nets,Knicks and My Raptors) which if anyone has wondered why the Raptors have done so well the last few seasons playing these teams 16 times a year sure helps.

    I have to apologies for yahoo not getting to KCP and Richardson, JB and Slim, The Homie Dario Saric of my REL was getting his SF status added this week and that takes up alot of computing power.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Foreign Affairs: Geez, yeah that’s a big help! Only Celtics are any good…

      Ugh, stupid Yahoo’s slow servers! Dunno why Saric got preference all the sudden!!! 🙂

      • Foreign Affairs says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: 14-2 last year and 8-0 this year in division games it’s why I’m a less excited Raptors fan then some others this year with the teams record and the fact the Cavs are still there and didn’t take the team seriously when beating them in the conference finals.

        I had been hoping on Saric getting SF quickly heading into the draft to help my SF depth and as Richardson remained neglected I assumed they just weren’t updating this season. It was a pleasant surprise, guess they wanted to help me out after Bennett flunked out of the league again lol.

        Wonder if they’ll give Lucas Nogueira PF status next, if so there might be a conspiracy against Slim going on, it’s the Russians, they don’t like his love of the Goose.

          @Foreign Affairs: Well, DeRozan looks like he’s improving yet again. Might be a tougher out for CLE than last year.

          Also what about Valanciunas, he could be YOURS in the REL! 🙂

          Hahaha, yeah Egg Nog will get PF, what else would be a good one…? James Johnson PG! Haha

    I’ll go Dragic for 30! More confident stashing Sully or Simmons? Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Connor: Nice pick! Although i still hope to catch ya! I would say Simmons, just bc I think he’ll have the USG.

  10. TheMuppetManiac says:

      @jdubs: Harrison Barnes or Matt Barnes?!?!? Hahaha jk jk, Matty B isn’t even playing tonight, which means LOOK OUT NIGHTCLUBS IN HIS AREA!

      • jdubs says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: hey man, Matt barnes is reformed! As long as there’s nobody named Derek Fisher at their place, all the local nightclubs don’t have to worry

          @jdubs: Haha, good point, good point. That is, until he sees a Derek Fisher picture on the wall, MAYHEM!

    I’ll go with Lowry for 30 against the vaunted Mess defense

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dusty: Where Slim went too! Hopefully the Mess either curl up in a fetal position and lose by 50 so they sit him after 20 minutes, or they actually play a little D 🙂

      • Dusty says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: 2 in a row I’ve had DNP-rest, only Lakers/Nuggets left, I guess I’ll go Barksdale instead.

        • Dusty says:
          (link)

          @Dusty: I take that back, I pick nobody

          • JB Gilpin

            @Dusty: Hahaha, nobody it is! Wow Barksdale was bad last night… Throw him back to The Wire!

        @Irk No D Nowitzki: Hah very true, Giannis is pretty phoenetic at least for us silly Americans! Hah nice work, Scew wasn’t playing any D! Mannnn Kawhi is on fire! Points for us!

      @The Gintern: Man, I think this game started at 8:30 with an 8:40 (5:40 PST) tip, so you’re good for the point by one singular minute! Down to the wire!
