JB’s reign of terror of feeling great is now over!  Not only do I have a case of the sniffies, but stupid Courtney Lee decided to take a dump on the court right when I needed him not to!  On today’s show, we recap the stash-ability of Marquese Chriss, DeMar DeRozan‘s kankle, and how Ivica Zubac is going to save the world.  We then preview tonight’s games with our 30-point challenge picks and wrap up the week at the movies.

    hey JB, ended up making that deal for lillard and porzingis for my lowry and hassan. my team looks like this now: steph, kemba, lillard, porzingis, gobert, crowder, tobias, dieng, wade, schroder, waiters, deangelo, payton.

    so i have gotten some offers from the giannis owner for steph. just need your advice on if i need to make any moves for playoffs. i have already locked up a playoff spot at 2nd/3rd and im thinking steph will rest so would not mind moving him if it makes my team better. which one of these do you like?

    steph and tobias/crowder/waiters for giannis and eric gordon. or should i just hold for now. let me know what you think.

      @Mak:
      In my opinion, you don’t need Giannis, you have enough blocks from Porzingis and Gobert, and Dieng, and Eric Gordon is an injury risk. Only thing to consider would be if Curry is rested. Only my opinion.

        @Mak: @Shahed: Wooo, nice! Porzingy with a nice bounce back last night, although hate hearing his back tightened up.

        I agree with Shahed – I don’t know if Giannis is really a need for you,. Sure 3s aren’t really a need either with Steph, but isn’t really helping getting Gordon either. I’d hold off there

    Hey JB! Who do you think should I drop for Bebe, Willy or Taj? Feel like I need blks so leaning Bebe.

    10team punt FT
    G-Holiday,Dragic,Bev,Oladipo,NickYoung,Tyreke
    F-LBJ,Ariza,Covington,Bazemore,GaryHarris

      @Tyler: Hernangomez is on the wire as well but feel like Ive got Rebs locked up.

        @Tyler: @Tyler: Yeah your boards are good, but I think I’ll do that flier for Willy and lose Reke. If anything, it gives you the ability to maybe trade DeAndre and not punt FT, or at least consider some trades giving away REB if Willy pans out as a consistent guy

    Yo JB,

    I’ve got Parsons and want to drop him. 12 Team, Standard 9 Cat, H2H

    G: Lowry, Bledsoe, Jrue, Batum, Schroder,
    F: Kawhi, Crowder, RyNo, James Johnson, Parsons
    C: DeAndre, Manimal, Zubac
    IL: Kanter, Zeller

    Some options: JaMychal, Courtney Lee, Tucker, Marvin, Brogdon, J Rich, Aminu, PatPat, Len, Lawson, LeVert, Okafor, Delly, Hernagomez, Marquese, Hield, Jamal Murray, WCS, Ferrell

    Guaranteed playoffs, so thinking long term. Who would you go with? Also, any weaknesses in my team?

    Thanks,

      @Shahed: Yo! Hah, yeah I think anyone in any size of league wants to drop Parsons these days haha. I’m def thinking big man – if Faried is traded or minutes change again, you could need help there. I’m debating the Chriss stash or current recency bias of Willy H. I’ll go Willy H for ya for now, and can readdress if his minutes dry up again

      • Shahed says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:
        Thanks for the advice, I got Hernagomez, I only picked up Faried for this week because Zeller is out, I will probably drop him when Zeller is back, or should I keep Faried. And I got to pick up Zubac because of Kanters injury, which I don’t mind so much.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Shahed: Probably can go back to Zeller and lose Faried, but we’ll see how the minutes shake out when Jokic is back. Hah yeah, Zubac gonna save everyone!

    I’m going to go with Klay Thompson for 30.

      @TheMuppetManiac: Nice! Thought about him, but was tough to pass on Curry for Klay….

    Ah, you recorded this before Willy’s next explosion. What’s your stance on his ROS outlook now? Noah sure seems very supportive on the bench. He had some great moves against BK.

    TyJo’s mins were back in the last one but is he going to be producing those 16-20 ppg games moving forward, now that Waiters is the man on that team? I’m currently holding on to Jennings in my 10er, as I’m yet to hear about Rose’s progress and despite the FG% drain, Brandon’s been a boost in 3s, assists and stls(!!).

    I dropped Cody for Zubac. Let’s see what the kid gives me.

    Hm I have a feeling that the GSW LAC game is gonna be a blowout, so I’m staying away from the Dubs. Gimme Wall!

    • Lasandro says:

      @slim: I had no idea that you’re such an R&b head! I’m essentially a 90s r&b geek and I’m very much looking forward to watching the New Edition series. In fact, I just watched BBD get interviewed on The Breakfast Club about the show. Check it out on YouTube!

        Slim says:

        @Lasandro: I’ll still take Zubac over Willy, but solid minutes with the Goose back. Maybe there’s some ROS value… maybe…

        Last I heard it sounds like Rose might give it a go on Saturday. I dropped Jennings in the only league I had him. That FG drain is kind of annoying and I needed the streamer spot. I held onto Zubac over Jennings, although Jennings is my 6th PG so not exactly a loss. I dropped Jennings to stream Chriss. I want to be there when he gets unleashed.

        R&B gets a bad rap. Everyone thinks its all sappy love songs, “Hey girl”. Like all it is is just Jodeci and K-Ci and JoJo. But BBD, RKelly and the such can do so much more. I mean shit, can I get a “toot toot?”

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @slim: am i grabbing TyJo again or is he still only fringy in a 10er?

        Yeah hence why I don’t know many people I can truly share my R&b love with. Man I freakin love Jodeci and all those other bands a la Dru Hill, Blackstreet etc, but yeah there’s def more to it. Although something can be said about sappy songs these days because you never hear a good Keith Sweat-type ballad on the radio these days. I’m very much h still immersed in that era and sound. MA mind is telling me no.. but may body, my booodyyy is telling me yes!

          @Slim: @Lasandro: Yeah def Zubac>Willy for me too, but Willy is getting really intriguing. I just dunno if you have room on that tight squeeze 10er.

          Yeah I kinda wanna start stashing Chriss too, but I am playing for seeding in all my leagues still.

          Haha you guys are on your own with R&B talk, I like prog hard metal. Pretty much the polar opposite haha.

          Although I do know the reference! Chappelle’s remix is better. “Let give you that toot toot, lemme give ya that wee wee, gime that poop poop, gimme that dooty….. this is the remix edition of the song about pissin!”

            @JB Gilpin: I’ll listen to nearly anything. The exceptions being country (I just don’t get it), Violin solos, and ya know I struggle to get into the Sinatra stuff, yeah I get it it makes for great elevator music but that’s it.

            I feel like if you weren’t around for the 80s-90s R&B then you don’t really know how insanely popular it was. Remember this was the height of the music video too.

              @Slim: Yeah I’m open to anything. I’ll listen to a good violin solo! Sinatra stuff, yeah I couldn’t do that…

              Oh I’ve heard this song! fresh beat on that one. I just never got into R&B or rap much. I do really like Run the Jewels though

            @JB Gilpin @Slim: haha love it all! Oh but don’t hate on that classic big band stuff – don’t mind me a bit of Sinatra every now and then. Makes me feel like a cast member in Ocean’s 11.

            Boom! Two 30pt challenges in a row! Let’s get it!

                  @Lasandro: @Slim: Hahaha was hoping someone would ask about that reference… Nah it’s from cribbage, a card game I play with the old man. You play with pegs to 121, if you lose with 120 points, it’s called “dead-holed”

    Give me Bradley Beal for 30.

      @Shahed: Nice, I like it! Beal is always a good under the radar call

    Hey JB, I might actually get a trade done!!!!

    Following up for my previous posts, I offered Lebron, Lou Williams, and Beverley for Beal, Ibaka, and Crowder, but he said that he does not like Beverley and would like a big man instead. I recently dropped Terrance Jones for Zubac, so I was thinking of replacing Beverley with David Lee or Zubac. Do you still like the deal with one of those big men and if so, who would you offer first?

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

    My team: (I punt FT%)

    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, Zubac

    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

      @WorldsFirstAnalrapist: Got ya on the earlier post! I liked that deal you put in the follow up!

      • WorldsFirstAnalrapist says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I spoke too soon! These kids don’t want to trade with me because I have dominated them the last two years and I’m sitting in 3rd this year.

        Would you do Beal, Ibaka, and Crowder for Lebron, Lou Williams, and the savior of the world?

          (link)

          @WorldsFirstAnalrapist: Ugh, I hate long term leagues like that sometimes! So annoying… Yeahhhhhh, I man Zubac is the savior of the world, but I wouldn’t let him hold up the deal, I still like it

    Yo JB!
    Drop T. Chandler (in spite of 2 slower games, I love me those boards) for Hernangomez’ upside?
    Thanks!

      @Nukna: Yeah I’m having trouble trusting Willys minutes and he doesn’t have the shotblocking upside of someone like Zubac. I’d hold off on Willy but I would drop him for Zubac.

        @Nukna: @Slim: I think I agree with that, I’m all in on Zubac too if he’s avail

      @Niko-Cola Kevin: Wow, yeah he was when we recorded, and I thought last night mighta put him over the edge, but still 11th! Yeah hard not to go there, he’s pretty hot right now, like Hansel

    How can I not go Steph while hot — can I join the club??

    I think I got a half point too for Gary, right? Pretty sure that puts me at 4.5, just want the people to know to look for me on waivers….. I’m poised to put together a big second half campaign in the 30pt challenge!

      @hassan’s whitesiders: Yeah man, that’s the beauty of the game – ain’t easy. With only 4 games, I wouldn’t be surprised if no one gets em either. But I def need to bring in the stocktonator when we make these calls! See what the robot thinks! (or at least who would be closest)
