We’re back with an all new, special, Friday edition of the Razzball Hoops Pod!  Ending the week in style!  On today’s show, we catch up on “Walls”, alternative facts, and how rough a life is without Waiters!  Hah!  We also chat on Jabari Parker‘s sky-high stock, the Clippers getting a star back/some other guys stepping up, and our worry level for The Goose.  Finally, we preview tonight’s games with our 30-point challenge picks and wrap up the week – as always – at the movies.

    1. UUUUUUGH KANTER WHY WHY WHY??!! All the centers are gone. I dropped kanter for oubre. Is donatas a solid pickup? I can drop ingles for him

    2. I panic dropped Harrell and picked up nurkic after I thought jokic got injured. What a fakeout. I hate fantasy

      @Hamtime: 1. Ugh yeah that was unbelievable… Ummm, nah, I think they still piecemeal together the role, not too big on Sabonis being consistent. 2. Hah I’m still OK with this, Joke is still getting an MRI, you never know! And Harrell only had a good game bc Nene got a DNPrest

    Someone just offered me Giannis, Favors and Kilpatrick for Waiters, Howard and Beverely in a 12 team, standard 9 Cat, Roto league. I can’t believe it, I obviously accepted.
    Some people are crazy.

    My boys! Haven’t listened to the pod yet, but wanted to ask this question before I did cause I might sleep mid way through. And no it’s not cause it’s boring, it’s cause it’s 3:16 am right now haha.

    Anyway, what do you guys think about Levert ROS? I’m currently sitting at 1st in my 10 team league and want a potential breakout candidate post ASB. Do you see him ever cracking 30 minutes on the regular?

    I have Barton at the end of my roster. Would you drop Barton for him? The ideal situation is include Barton in a 2 for 1 and pick up Levert.

    Was thinking trading Wes + Barton for KCP. I can use the steals.

    But if I can’t trade him, worth the switch for Barton?

    Thanks!

      @Threekola: Aha figured you’d post here too! I like LeVert, I still dunno if they give him a consistent 32+ MPG since they wanna be cautious with the foot and not like they’re going anywhere… I’d narrowly keep Barton, but love that idea to consolidate into a KCP and then add him

        @JB Gilpin:

        Ah, just checked the other post…

        I can’t even stay updates with my own questions on 2 different posts, no idea how you manage to stay updated on ALL the questions on MANY posts.

        Not sure if you guys have one, but I’ve been a razzballer for a while and I really think a notification system of some kind would make this site even better.

        Guessing you guys have thought of that though… haha

          @Threekola: Hahaha, yeah I have a system after doing comments for so long 🙂

          Well if you used your current email address, it should ping you when comments are added to that post, but I dunno if there’s anything specific to each comment chain. Let me see what the powers at be have thought on this, I’m sure they’ve discussed it, our Razzball overlords haha

    got a super close matchup (4-4-1) going with a top league rival, steals are tied but every single category is close. need help deciding who to play tonight

    Elfrid (@BOS) or Schroder (WSH)?

    and then i have 4 spots for some combination of Crowder (ORL) Porzingis (CHA) Horford (ORL) Vucevic (@BOS) James Johnson (@CHI) Ryan Anderson (@PHI) or one of the Elfrid/Schroder who isn’t in my PG slot

    I really wanna win this one, your thoughts are appreciated!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dom: Schroder is playing realllly well. I would go with him. Def going Crowd/Zing/Horf. I think i kinda wanna lean James Johnson, Bulls not playing good D these days!

  9. Pbomb says:

    Jrue holiday or mike conley ROS?

    Please give me d-wade for the 30point challenge. i just feel like taking him. 🙂

      @Pbomb: Ohhhhhh good one. Hmmmm. I kinda wanna lean jrue actually! Really close. Hah Wade is a strong call man, REVENGE GAME!

  10. Don Majikowski says:

    WHo would you prefer to roster Zubac or David Lee?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Don Majikowski: Hmmmmm. Obviously Zubac has the luster to be a huge asset in March. And he’s playing well… Ya know, gimme Zoobs!

  11. The Gintern says:

    Hmmmm some good options on the table, think I’m also gonna go with Kemba tonight

      @a bag of sand: Nah it’s a little too much. I’d see if there’s a third player they can add that fits a need coming back

  13. jdubs says:

      @jdubs: Awwwww brutal, the 28 point heatbreaker!

  14. Irk No D Nowitzki says:

    I’m Going full melodrama for the 30 pts challenge. The Guy needs to show he is the man in town and i do think that his melo-n sized ego is hurting porzingis. Hopefully he gets traded to the lakers for d’Angelo “brainlow” Russell + lou and mozgov!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Irk No D Nowitzki: Hahahaha he really tried his hardest, with 26 shots! But not even close! Stupid Melo…

  15. TheMuppetManiac says:

      @TheMuppetManiac: Nice, well done! 3 straight for him, wow!

    Ha, Butler and Wade in trouble, gotta keep it in the locker room, not in public

      @Shahed: Haha yeah that is some funny stuff, and they lost yet again. Hoiberg losing that team…

    10 team h2h league. Drop wes matthews for darren collison? Thanks!

      @Sud: Sure, Colly looked greaaaaat last night, and you can always stream more 3s in a 10er

  18. WorldsFirstAnalrapist says:
    (link)

    What’s up JD!?!? I hope all is well. Great write up as always man.

    10-team H2H, non-keeper league, 14 roster spots (9 starters, 5 bench, no IR)
    FG%, FT%, 3s, Pts, Oreb, Dreb, Ast, St, Blk

    I punt FT% and have Lebron on my team. I’m nervous about owning him down the stretch with him being rested during our playoffs. I also haven’t been able to make a trade in this league for 3 years because all my buddies think I’m trying to screw them (I have done very well with your help these last 3 years, but this year has been a struggle, 7-6). Below I posted my team and the team I think I have the best shot trading with, would you please give me some advice on a starting point for a trade?

    My team:
    PG- Rubio, Holiday, Russell
    SG- McCollum, Beverley, Gary Harris, Lou Williams
    SF- Lebron, Thaddeus Young, Bazemore
    PF- Terrance Jones, David Lee
    C- Whiteside, DeAndre Jordan

    His team (4-9):
    PG- Giannis, Lillard, Collison, Deron Williams
    SG- Brogdon, Rivers, Bradley Beal
    SF- Crowder, Wes Matthews
    PF/C- Favors, Dieng, Griffin, Ibaka, Booker

    Sorry for the long post!

      @WorldsFirstAnalrapist: What’s up man?! Thanks for dropping by! Aight so we’re moving LeBron, punting FT, looks like you have a nice FG% base too, prob could use 3s… I think with Whiteside kinda a question mark to finish strong, I would boost blocks a little too. LeBron for Ibaka and Beal? Adds 3s, doesn’t hurt FG% too much, another blocks source. Might seem like selling low a little, but I think it could work!

      • Worlds First Analrapist says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: awesome, thanks for the advice!

        I’ll give it a go and see what happens

  19. Tyler says:
    (link)

    1.) Temple or Lawson, who will be better ROS?

    2.) Pick 2 out of JaMychal or Aminu or Nance or Zubac

    3.) 10team punt Ft, drop marcus morris or baze for mcconnell, zubac, smart, warren, barton, clee, reed, rondo, hardaway, nurkic, lawson

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: 1 – I’ll lean Lawson, but very close 2 – Zubac andddd J Mike I thin. Aminu very close tho 3 – McConnell if need AST would be OK for Morris. Prob holding otherwise

  20. Johnc says:
    (link)

    I am having a tough trading Mudiay with the injury. Targeting teams that needs some dimes and can absorb his FG percentage. 12 team, 9 cats, h2h league. Would you swap him for 1. Faried 2. Lawson. 3. E Turner 4. Leuer 5. Nogs 6. Shumpert 7. Delly. 8. Ellington 9. ZuBac. 10. Just hold and be patient!

    My team: R Jax, Smart, Lowry, Mudiay
    Leonard, G Harris, Porter, Reke,
    KAT, Kokic, Horford, Poison Goose, Adams, T Jones
    IR: CP3….need him for the championship!

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Johnc: Yeah I can bet, he’s shown flashes, but overall disappointed… #1-#6 nah. All are waiver wire fodder anyway. #7 I think I might to get some production now. Mannnnn I love Zubac, but you don’t really need a center. So yeah, since you could use added AST, I wouldn’t mind doing it for Delly who is playing better the past 5

  21. John says:

    James Johnson just came in the wire. Who would be my drop? Mudiay or Smart?
