    Namaste JB !

    So I play in Dynasty/Keeper sorta league. We can keep as many players as we like year to year.If I keeep all my players next seaosn then I obviously won’t have a pick in next years draft.
    I got offered this trade. The owner is a Jazz fan

    I give up – Rudy Gobert
    and I get Kristpas Porzingis , Rodney Hood and Marcus Morris
    This sounds like an excellent deal for me right? Also I am a Jazz fan too 😛

    The other players on my Roster are

    PG/SG- Austin Rivers, Wade, Rubio, Payton, Harden, Avery Bradley

    SG/SF- Gallinari, Draymond Green,Hayward,Ingles, Josh Richardson

    PF/C – Aldridge,Myles Turner, Nerlens Noel,Nurkic,Gortat,Cody Zeller, Clint Capela, Embiiid, Gobert

    If I accept the deal I would need to drop two players? Who would you recommend I drop! Should I accept the deal?? I am a big Jazz fannnnn so trading Ruby will make me sad 🙁 But deal looks so good to me! HAAAAAALP JB

      @Blint: Whats up man?! Hah yeah in a keeper you’re def taking Porzingis! The throw ins are kinda meh, but looks like you have mad deep rosters. Love that deal. Question is though, does Zinger hurt a higher draft pick than Gobert? Or are both the same penalty to keep? Oh and you can lose JRich (especially if no IL) andddddd, prob Ingles

        @JB Gilpin:

        Its cold here in India where I am. Not your level cold though. Its 8°C here which is about 46 °F for you guys. So wearing a jacket and using my cat as warmer 😀
        How has married life been? Have the Baseball podcasts comeback yet? I love Grey and JB podcasts! Aramiz Ramirez references over under 100 this year 😛

        Nah its a dynasty sort of format so all players have the same penalty. Why you so down on mah boy HOOD though? Jrich and Bradley are on my IL right now so will have to lose Ingles and Zeller!

          @Blint: Oh man, yeah that’s no fun! We had a big snow/ice storm roll through a few weekend ago, but it’s been pretty mild so far.

          Hahahaha Aramis?! Yeah he won’t make any cameos 🙂 We’ve done one offseason pod, and doing another for tues morning next week. Going bi-weekly until March.

          I’m not THAT down on Hood! But he’s not like teeming with upside IMO. Oh OK on your keeper rules, I was just wondering. I think you might be be able to move Rubio to IL for Jrich kinda soon, we’ll see there. Kinda struggling with the 2nd drop tho, could you ask if you could get a better combined guy than Morris/Hood?

            @JB Gilpin:

            Ohh one pod is out 😀 naaaaaaaice! Will listen to it asap!!
            You and Slim should do a TOP 5 on your fav 90s shows/movies. Was watching My Cousin Vinny a few days back it still holds up so well 😀

            I am surprised you not telling me to drop Cody Zeller?You think he will have a larger role going forward?

            Will mail the other team owner about getting a better player than Hood/Morris
            His team is

            PG/SG- Deron Willliams, Giannis,Brogdon, Buddy Hield,Patty Mills,John Wall,

            SF/PF- Butler,Ingram,Evan Turner,LeVert,Hood,Marcus Morris, Wiggins,Jamal Crawford, Ben Simmons,

            C- Favors,Porzingis,Kaminsky,David Lee,

            what else can I ask him for?

              @Blint: Thanks man, hopefully its a good one! Man, we have to start this next one a horribly sad MLB note… damn.

              Ohhhhh love this idea! Maybe we do it for the Thur Pod 🙂

              Ummm, maybe not much better, but Zeller is a really good under-the-radar contributor due to good %s and low TO. Maybe you see if you can get Wiggins instead?

    Hey JB! Great work as usual. Should I pick up Garrett Temple asap?

    G Lowry, Brgdon, McConnell, Bradley, Seth, Hardaway
    F Alphabet, Crowder, Jokic, Harkless
    C Embiid, Myles, Olynyk
    IL Simmons

    My team is in first place right now. Do you see any drop on my team for Temple?

    Thanks!

      @The Gintern: Damn, didn’t think anyone was gonna go this route, and I was so close to doing it! I’ll be mad if you guys get a point here hah

      • The Gintern says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Haha well a week or two ago I decided to say screw the logic and go with my gut – if a guy’s hot, doesn’t matter if he’s away/has a good defender on him/etc. you gotta take him. We’ll see how this new strategy turns out…
