The Razzball Hoops Pod is back, but it’s a shortened solo show!  I better not put that description on any of my online videos…  Slim is out today, so I put together a brief little half-show to tide us over until Thursday.  My Podcasting urges would go unsatiated, I’d start Podcasting about baseball or something!  On today’s show I recap the big news and notes from the weekend including Myles Turner’s breakout, then preview tonight’s games with my 30-Point Challenge pick.

    Heyo JB,

    12 Team (Standard 9 CAT)
    Knight, DRussell, Sloan
    IT, Booker, Barnes
    Durant, Gay, Covington
    Millsap, AGordon
    Markieff, Gibson

    Nurkic is on waivers. Should I blow a 4/12 on him? Or is his recent injury a big turnoff?

    Al Jeff is also on the wire in a few of my leagues.
    Could you give your opinion on him ROS.

    Thanks!

    PS: Gimmie the dutchess for 30 tonight.

      @J: Yo! It’s a pretty big turnoff haha. I don’t really see a good drop for him even though you need a big man help. I dunno if he gets enough run any time in the immediate future. Same with Big Al, I don’t think it’s much with a long re-entry time.

      Any time!

    Not bad for a solo show! Did miss Slim’s theme music though haha. Love that Wiggins matchup but I’m gonna go with the rooster tonight to mix it up.

    Currently sitting 8/16 after slipping from 3rd while Favors has been down, not sure what moves to make… Any advice on targets/guys to shop?

    16 team 9cat roto, with:

    Stats:
    FG% = 12, FT% = 6, 3pm = 12, Reb = 9, Ast = 6, Stl = 12, Blk = 5, TO = 10, Pts = 7

    Squad:
    CJM, Tony Parker, Colly, LaVine, Larkin
    Otto Porter, Redick, Korver, DeMarre
    Favors, Vala, Gortat, ZBo, Bookworm, Nance

    Thought I could get something low-end from a playoff team who wanted a 3s/steals boost for DeMarre, finally willing to drop him… Who should I pick up out of the following for him, and any other drops to make? On the wire: Bayless, Darrell Arthur, Kieff, Temple, CPayne, WCS, Kosta Koufos, Diaw?

    Appreciate it as always!!!

      @The Gintern: Of course somebody sneaks in with the Gallo call while I’m writing my post… Also, thoughts on the new Porzingis song?! Charlie linked it in his article this morning, that Kristaps Kristaps Kristaps whisper is prettttty silly, gotta love it

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @The Gintern: Thanks man! Hah I missed Slim’s music too…

        Yeah Favors has def hurt your blocks/reb/pts. I might go upside of Kieff, I know it’ll be bumpy, but has the most upside to help some of those stats…

        Ha well both you guys can be right! Nah I haven’t listened yet,will tonight!

  7. I'm Harden for your love says:

    Hey JB,

    Are Lou Williams vs KCP close in your books when it comes to overall value? The way I see it there both very similar but Lou main value is his FT% and KCP is his STL’s. With that being said I see Lou’s FT% value is really hard to find off the wire but I could also use KCPs steals. another option is to drop Parsons and keep both? This is a 10 team league im in.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @I’m Harden for your love: I’m def taking KCP. A big factor for me is Lou’s possible loss of role via trade or player development there in LAL. All 3 are def must-owns in my book, I think if I had to drop one it’s Lou though

      • I'm Harden for your love says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        That’s funny KCP has been on the wire since day one. I’ll have to think about what KCP adds to my team. I really needed that FT% bump.

        Thanks JB

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @I’m Harden for your love: With Ft% a dire need, and if you’ve rid some drains off your team, then yeah I could see making that move, but I am a self-admitted KCP addict!

        • Jeremy says:
          (link)

          @I’m Harden for your love:

          Funny thing is KCP is probably the best one out of the 3 esp with how he’s playing lately.

    in two seperate trade offers in a 9cat, which side would you take (I need help in all cats)

    1. Marc Gasol vs Draymond Green

    2. Brandon Knight vs Paul George

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jesse: Both are clear to me, I’ll take Dray and George

  9. John says:

    Received a sad trade offer. His Kobe for my Taj. How far the great one has fallen.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @John: Haha damnnnn and sad thing is, it’s probably Taj!

    I’m taking PG13 in the 30 pts challenge vs a horrible PHX defense

    I

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @ByeFelica: Can’t take George, he’s 8th in league in scoring, gotta leave out top 10 :/

  11. KevinOG says:

    Hey, Nice stuff man. Had fun listening as always.
    Got offered Hayward for my Reggie in a small (8 team) points league. What do you think?
    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @KevinOG: Hah thanks man! Wanted to put something together even with Slim out.. . Hmmm, I think I’ll stick with Reggie in Pts but close

  12. Kevin says:

  15. dom says:

    stream Matt Barnes or Tony Allen Thursday @ Denver? my opponent jumped out to a big lead in 3’s as he has Reddick and Klay so maybe focus on other stuff

    • dom says:
      (link)

      @dom: I was gonna say Wiggins for 30 point challenge but looks like someone took him. I’ll go for the dark horse …..Tyler Johnson tonight

      • dom says:
        (link)

        @dom: also in my deep 12 team (17 player roster size) I’m thinking of using my #3 waiver position to put a claim in on Aaron Gordon. His minutes are trending up and Skiles is “contemplating a lineup change”. I don’t think he’d make it through waivers unclaimed as everyone on Yahoo is adding him. I’ve sat on the claim all year and it’s tempting to continue to save it but idk if anyone better or w more upside will get dropped for the rest of the year. this is 10 cat (OREB). what do you think? thanks

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @dom: Sure yeah I would go Barnes, I like his REb and BLK to go with steals that Allen would too. Oh damn, TyJo was off last night! Hurt my REL team…

          Sure yeah in that deep, I think you gotta add Gordon, OREB should help his value a tad too

  16. Patty Mills is my Homeboy says:
    (link)

    I’ll take Wiggins for 30!

    Who’d Slim end up taking anyway?

  17. Paul says:
    (link)

    Towns for 30

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Paul: That was a good guess given Pels give up a lot to bigs, god close!

  18. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Great job running Han Solo bro! You coulda kept going I reckon, analyzing recently hot guys like Smart. Was very enjoyable!

    Thrill for 30 baby! Could be a blowout and he may get a nice run off the bench.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Thanks man! I think if I had more time to prepare I coulda gone longer 🙂 Damn Barton is slowing down…

    Hey JB,

    Eric Gordon for Cody Zeller. who wins in this trade? THanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bulldogs: Damn well now it’s obviously Zeller with Gordon unfortunately hurt…

  20. J says:
    (link)

    you dropping taj or matt barnes for pj tucker or myles turner? so many injuries…and so many players i want but can’t decide who to drop HELPPP

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @J: Oh man that’s tough! I’d keep Taj for consistency. Barnes v. Turner… Ugh I wanna see one more from Barnes first before making that swap.

  21. sliimbo says:
    (link)

    which 3 guys do you like best for 9 cat the rest of the way?

    Myles Turner, Norris Cole, Sloan, Ilyasova, Marcus Morris, Tony Allen, Casspi, Mason Plumlee or Schroder

    thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @sliimbo: Gimme Ilya, Casspi, anddddd 3rd one is super hard, I think i gotta stick with Marcus Morris. Although short term i could see Sloan and Turner being more ownable for needs

  22. Tyler says:
    (link)

    Griffin + McCollum for Kemba + Klay
    Griffin + Conley for Kemba + Klay

    16er 9cat h2h
    Which side would you take for both trades? Is it lopsided?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: I’ll take Kemba and Klay side, both are fairly close, but Kemba is legit to me

  23. Justin says:
    (link)

    9 cat h2h. Who should I bench for tmrow out of: Collison, Amir Johnson, olynk, Payton, casspi, Marcus Morris? Thanks!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Justin: I’ll sit Olynyk, I bet Amir gets some nice run vs. his former team and condenses minutes for other bigs

  24. Nont nontiskul says:
    (link)

    Hi jb. , Otto porter and. C.parson. Which side you on for Roto. , do you think miles turner gonna play a lot now or its just temporary ?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nont nontiskul: I’ll lean Parsons, but verrrrry close. Sure, yeah Mahinmi got hurt last night so he should get some extended run

  25. Nont nontiskul says:
    (link)

    Schroeder and. Cj miles which side are you on

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nont nontiskul: Needs based and how much you can stash are big factors, I’ll stick with Miles for right now

  26. Tim says:
    (link)

    Just got offered czeller and rubio for my wiggins, 12t 9cat… Seems okay but my team isn’t exactly flush with points (i’m pretty solid on assists) and I like the extra stream spots… thoughts?

    My Squad
    CP3
    Lillard
    DrayDray
    Gobert
    Wiggins
    DBooker
    Myles
    MBarnes
    CJMiles
    Taj
    JClarkson
    JVal

    So i’d probably have to drop Turner….

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tim: Damn yeah I think on most teams I take that, but yeah you’re assists are so good… It’s just not a good fit unless your league trades alllll the time and you can flip rubio or one of your stud PG pretty quickly

  27. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    Mann I’m really really close to dropping our boy Colly. I mean man tbh I’d rather have Bayless right now…

    • JB Gilpin

      @Dante Green: Nooooooo don’t do that!
