We’re back with a two man show!  On today’s edition, Slim and I recap the big news and notes from the past few nights of action including a tidal wave of big man injuries, play another edition of Higher/Lower with professional (?) theme show music, preview tonight’s games with our 30-Point Challenge picks, then wrap up the week at the movies.

      @Hamtime: @Hamtime: 1. Noooo, no way and especially not with Dirk hurt. 2. Sure, gimme Turner right now 3. I’ll leave out Ross, just so blah 4. Depends on if you can afford to stash, needing production now I could go with either based on needs. Any time!

    So many great South Park emo vs goth memes. Too bad we can’t insert photos into the comments section. Actually, perhaps it’s for the best haha.

      @miles proudfoot: Haha yeah putting in pics might be a bad idea… I’ve seen Sky put in a GIF I think though, but he loves his GIFs…

    i’ll go Reggie Jackson for the 30pt challenge.

    I know it’s early and we’re not sure how long Dwight will be banged up, but for Sunday do we like Terrence Jones or Capela better (DAL)? Leaning Jones as it’s tight in FT% at the moment. Other streaming options are Sloan (OKC) and Steven Adams (BKY)

    Also is George Hill definitely a hold in a 10 teamer? Missing this entire road trip has been annoying and I only have one streaming spot while my opponent has multiple. I’m 12-0 in this league and should be focused on the end of the year playoffs goal but there would be something aesthetically pleasing about an undefeated season. It’s like when the Colts were 14-0 one year and had everything clinched and opted to rest Peyton Manning in the final weeks, lost their perfect season, and didn’t win the super bowl anyway. lol how do you think I should feel about this? It’s tempting to cut Hill or Wes Matthews to open a roster spot to stream but hopefully I can win this matchup without doing that

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dom: Nice! Cool yeah with Ft tight I’d go Jones. Yeahhhh it’s a personal issue with death of someone from IUPUI I think, and thankfully not an injury. I think you worry more on the title than going undefeated!

    streaming for 3’s…. tonight would you take jamal crawford or gary harris? the truth maybe?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tim: I’ll go Crawford, mainly because I streamed him in one of my RCls and want it to happen 🙂

  6. Tim says:
    (link)

    also would you take middleton or wiggins?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tim: Defffffffffffinitely Middelton, and I am a Wiggins apologist too haha

  7. Connor says:

    Hey JB, 12 team 10 cat league with FT made.
    PG- Brandon Knight, Ish, Elfrid, Reggie Jackson
    SG- James Harden, Oladipo
    SF- Tobias Harris, Markieff Morris, Matt Barnes
    PF- Paul Millsap, Kevin Love,
    C- Rudy Gobert, RoLo, Al Horford

    Got offered Klay for Millsap, initial reaction was to decline because I feel like I can stream 3s, what do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Your initial reaction is the correct one! Plus you have decent 3s as it is, then I might be streamin 3s as needed from barnes and Kieff spots

      • Connor says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks man, how do you feel about Kieff ROS? Any chance he lands somewhere and produces close to last year’s numbers? I love the podcast BTW!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Connor: Definitely a chance, but the Suns have to get the right return AND he has to be in the right opportunity. Now it looks like they’re gonna hold him back since he’s banged up, not too big on him. Thanks for listening man, appreciate it!

    Trade my McCollum for batum?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @E: Yup I would!

  9. jdubs says:
    (link)

    hey guys, nice pod as always. couple questions…

    In the injury report you missed Batum reaggravating his big toe injury. Is this something that’s going to be an issue all season? It’s incredibly frustrating, especially since I just traded for him.

    Also, what do you think of pbev in a 14 teamer? I’m holding him now because the waiver wire is pretty bare right now but if ty lawson isn’t getting traded anytime soon pbev doesn’t seem like a great option.

    Thanks and give me Millsap for the 30 point challenge!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jdubs: Thanks for listening man! Oh damn, yeah there were so many i knew I was gonna miss one or two… Hornets and their toes, Jeremy Lamb is killing me too in REL! In 14er I think you gotta hold…

      Nice, go Trillsap!

  10. TheJohn says:
    (link)

    Hihi… Couple trade q (9 cat roto 10 team)

    1. Griffin knight lillard for cp3 brolo west matthew

    2. Dipo/hayward + favors for kat?

    3. Dipo hayward favors for kawhi/butler?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TheJohn: 1. Gotta take Griffin side, even though it’s killer in TO 2. Dipo sure, Hayward I dunno, maybe a tad too much. 3. 10 team league, yeah I think I’d do either of those, prefer Kawhi. Any time!

      • Threekola says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        JB, you would trade all three of those guys for Kawhi?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Threekola: In a 10-team 9-cat roto, yeah I def would, you cut out a ton of TO and you can find easy replacements

  11. Chris says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    I’ve been devistated by injuries and I just got an offer, not 100% but i could use the extra player.

    I give Favors:
    I get: Zeller and Randle

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Nahhhh even with Favors risk I think you should get more than that

  12. Poisonous Stuff says:
    (link)

    Of course after I traded CJ miles for Cody Zeller he gets injured. Is Zeller a hold or drop in a 12 teamer? Larry Nance is on the wire could pick him up and put him on IL and stream the spot

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Poisonous Stuff: Hah well luckily he’s not a core to your team 🙂 Ummm, I’d rather see what happens with Zeller, if it’s not too long but over a week then you can IL him instead, much rather stash him than Nance

  13. jonny says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    Would you do thad young and collison for IT in h2h? Same situation as before, I have griffiin coming back from the IR soon and will have to drop collison anyways. What do you think about IT’s ROS outlook? Does smart take away some usage later on in the season?

    • Poisonous Stuff says:
      (link)

      @jonny: Also, still trying to trade Tyreke, but with roto threatening a shutdown EVERY BLURB, almost impossible to get anything similar asset in return. As I mentioned trading away CJ for Zeller, do you think Hood is a good get for Tyreke? Granted I don’t think the owner might even take the risk….

      • Poisonous Stuff says:
        (link)

        @Poisonous Stuff: Oops replied to the wrong post LOL

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Poisonous Stuff: No prob! Mehhhh, I think Tyreke should get a tadddd more.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jonny: Sure, yeah IT2/3 is playing great and don’t see a big reason it would stop – I think he’s been too important to them to all the sudden have Smart take up a lot of usage

  14. Matty

    Matty says:
    (link)

    What’s goin’ on, JB? You gonna be in the path of this storm or are you far enough south in the Carolinas to miss it?

    Gimme Chris Paul for the 30 tonight. I think he’ll need to tear up Kyrie to keep this game close.

    Stay warm, brother.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Matty: Whats up man?! A canadian telling a north carolinian to stay warm… Wow…. Yeah we’re gonna get hit pretty hard, already a snow day issued for tomo. Cp30, huh?!

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @Matty: @JB Gilpin: Nice call on CP3 with exactly 30 tonight, ha-ha.

        • Threekola says:
          (link)

          @A Hill O’ Beans:

          JB I think you owe it to CP and I to say Cp wouldn’t average 8 assists this year. You lost faith in him…you hurt his feelings…and by doing that you hurt mine…

          (Yes, you said that)

          🙂

      • Threekola says:

        @JB Gilpin:

        ^^^^^^^

      • Matty

        Matty says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah, you soft little Caroliners need someone to guide you through a little bit of ice & snow. Strap on a pair of skates and get your butt to work, Nancy!

        I’m stoked to have finally scratched in the 30 point challenge thanks to 30 on the number for CP3. There’s no stopping me now…

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @A Hill O’ Beans: @Threekola: @Matty: Hah, exactly 30 should be double points! Except ummm, not really…

          Hah yeah we had some Paul concerns for sure! Looking fine now, but still not quite what we hoped.

          Yup it’s a lot of sleet and freezing rain right now. Very icy

  15. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    I think I’ve asked a similar questioon recently so I apologize, buthow would you rank Danny Green, MTurner, Portis, AGordon, TJones and nurk? ROS if possible. Thank you!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: No worries! Man a lot of moving parts, gimme Turner, Tjones, Gordon, Green, Nurk Portis

  16. J says:

    Thrillsap for 30

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @J: Nice!

  17. Viz

    Viz says:
    (link)

    Great stuff as usual guys. I was originally was going to go Millsap for 30 but I’m making a switch to Big Spain. Denver runs so much that it should get Gasol some extra possessions in this game plus I have Millsap on all of my fantasy teams, I’ll get something out of him scoring 30 anyways!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Viz: Thanks so much for listening man! Damn Gasol got close!

  18. Threekola says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Dipo for Parsons? I got that offer from the Parsons owner.

    I was thinking of countering with Dipo, Val, and Matt Barnes for Parsons and Ibaka.

    What do you think of the second one?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Threekola: Mehhhhhh I don’t think I would, but Slim seemed to really like Parsons on the Pod… Sure yeah I like the 2nd one!

  19. The Gintern says:
    (link)

    Busy day at work so I’m saving the pod for tomorrow but I want to get my vote in for the 30pt challenge – the rooster got close for me on Tuesday, so I’m going back to the well tonight despite how slowly those Memphis bears roam around

  20. Ralph says:
    (link)

    Between Aaron Gordon and Myles Turner, which would you roster for ROS? With Turner, Mahinmi should be back soon and Jordan Hill is also there. Not sure he’ll get huge minutes. On the other hand, Gordon hasn’t been that impressing with minutes, and Skiles is the coach. What are your thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ralph: Yeah it’s so tough in ROS terms, I have to cop out and answer I’d own Turner right now. I think he’s earned a consistent 20 minute role even with everyone healthy, which may out value a 30 minute role for Gordon anyway… But could flip flop on that in a week ha

  21. Justin says:
    (link)

    In a 12 person, 9 cat. Got offered gortat and Cj for KAT and Barton. What you think? I can counter with KAT and marcus Morris.
    He also has gobert. What do you suggest?

    • Justin says:
      (link)

      @Justin: the rest of my team is:
      Lillard, Hayward, Marcus Morris, Colli, Payton, pj tucker, cassipi

      Zaza, millsap, olynk, Derrick favors,

      • draco21 says:
        (link)

        @Justin: I’d keep KAT.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Justin: @draco21: Yeah I’m not doing that for Gortat. If it was Gobert instead I would! I might counter with Gobert instead of Gortat and keep it the same

  22. Connor says:
    (link)

    Call me crazy but I’m going TJ Warren in the 30 point challenge

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: wasn’t too crazy, he had a nice game!

  23. hamtime says:
    (link)

    1. would you trade gorgui dieng to get myles turner?

    2. i hate teague. just awful. is he even worth avery bradley + myles turner?

    3. portis or tyson chandler ROS

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. Man Dieng’s mins are low, sure. 2. Yeah he’s been bad. I’d probably still hold on that price. 3. Chandler

  24. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    God I missed out on Agordon! I was going to snag him off the wire yesterday but I waited for Collison’s game first to see if he was going to bounce back (which did not happen and had another bad one against the hawks). We do not question Colly’s skillset but lately the points/assists/steals/treys (everything) are down bcoz of LACK OF PT/OPPORTUNITY. I fucking hate you Karl. Anyway, I’m thinking of streaming that spot for Adams (vs DAL) then maybe snag Warren after he clears waivers. Or I could wait for news that maybe Hoiberg experiments with his lineup and starts Bobby (vs BOS). Both Mirotic and Taj haven’t been spectacular since Noah went down so Bobby might be a decent stream.

    I’m going to try and offer Sloan for Teague’s owner. Lol

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Yup, Rondo is the worst… I’m streaming Adams too! Like his next few. I dunno about Portis, kinda need to see it first, he gets such a waffling of minutes and was out of the rotation so I dunno… Hah yeah buying Teague that low would be nice!

  25. James says:
    (link)

    There are too many emerging big men. Could u rank who u would own in order please
    WCS Myles turner Alex Len Andrew bogut

    Also. Who to cut first. Dudley or Gerald green?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @James: I’d cut Dudley first, but no issue cutting Green either.

      I’ll go Turner, WCS, Bogut, Len
