It’s almost the Super Bowl!  On today’s show we recap news and notes from the last two nights of action including a heartbreaking injury that I’m using the Super Bowl to repress, we play another edition of Higher/Lower, preview tonight’s games with our 30-Point Challenge picks, then wrap up the week at the movies (and at the record store!).

    Hi,

    8-cat, 12 team roto

    I have an offer of Jimmy butler and robin Lopez for my Carmelo Anthony and CJ McCollum.

    If I was confident melo would play the entire second half I wouldn’t do this. But this could be a viable way for me to dump melo.

    I think CJ is a bit overrated and I’ve already got nice value out of him and can replace him with: JR Smith, AGoodwin, NCole,

    My C’s: JV, Favors, TChandler

    Start 4G, 4F, 2C, 1Util

    %s are a tight cat too

    Would you make the deal?

    Please let me know if you need more info

    Thx

      @Timmy riggins: Yup totally with your analysis there, really takes away a lot of risk. I like it!

    So i picked him up. So now i guess i gotta embrace and nurture him.
    Gimme Markieff for 60. Write it down!

      @Ankur: Whoa 60?!?!?!?! Bold! I think we do need to make 60-point games worth double points…

    Hey, great stuff as always.
    little help?
    Should i send away my Monroe for Derozen or Batum (trying to improve my playoffs schedule)?
    It’s a small points league. Thanks!
    And give me Devin Booker for 30

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @KevinOG: Thanks man! Meh, this Batum toe thing and lingering issues is a little scary. DeRozan in Pts would be fine though. Any time!

    How do u rate these 4 bigs ROS

    Brook lopez
    M gasol
    Porzingis
    Favors

    Cat am really close is FT FG STL TO

    should i trade favors porzin + hayward for blo magasol?

    Also wht about favors hayward rubio for CP3?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TheJohn: Mannn. They’re all like 10 spots ROS overall apart from each other, I guess I’ll lean Gasol, Brolo, Porzingis, Favors, but I could get convinced to go a different order. Nah, that trade doesn’t seem to help those stats. Same with first trade, i’d hold that 2nd one

  7. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    1. Winslow or hezonja in a 14m? Winslow is getting the mins but he seems so low end. No upside

    2. Teletovic or Mahinmi in a 16m? Mahinmi scheduled to come back fri, but Tele has that breakout factor w 3s and some defensive stats

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: 1. Yeah and Hezonja is a little interesting, I’ll go Mario 2. I think Telet gets traded, Mahinmi

  8. Kevin says:

    Give me Brow for 30!

      @Kevin: Nice that was mine too, let’s do this AD!

    Would you rather go with D’Angelo or Goodwin ROS? Thanks!

    • miles proudfoot says:

      @miles proudfoot: add Mudiay to that as well.

        @miles proudfoot: I’ll go with Russell. Any time!

    does anyone feel that a John Wall trade for Avery Bradley AND Dieng is unfair?

    thoughts

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @sam: Ummm, I’d rather Wall, but 3s and a big man is totally different so I could see either side. Still, Wall owner should probably have tried for more.

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @sam: You are putting a lot of emphasis on the AND. Do you think its unfair because of it being a 2 for 1? I actually think its not enough for Wall.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @sam: @Ryan: Hah yeah I wasn’t sure what the inflection on AND was about either… 🙂 Agree seems like not enough, but defendable and I never veto if its two other owners

    Hey dudes missed the last couple pods, was happy to finally have some time at work to start listening again. Good stuff as always! Give me Lowry tonight for 30.

    How does this sound: Dirk and Tony Parker/Harrison Barnes for IT and some faab? I’m thinking Dirk gets a lot of DNP-rests in the playoffs, and I’m pretty desperately in need of a better PG… Leaning towards Dirk/Barnes so I could pair Parker and IT for assists.

    16 team 9 cat roto but playoffs are h2h, squad is:
    Parker, Colly, Larkin, Cole (fresh off weekly waivers this morning)
    Freak, Redick, Bradley, Porter, Harrison Barnes
    Brow, Moose, Vala, Dirk, Hawes, Bass

    Appreciate the advice!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Gintern: Thanks man, welcome back! Nice pick! Sure, yeah I love that! I’d be kinda surprised if IT2/3 owner took it though… And yeah a PG is a dire need for ya 🙂

    With the impending return of Alec Burks would you drop Trey and pick up Wes Johnson?

    Just looking to replace some treys.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Eddie Rooskie: Ummm, sure, yeah Wesley ‘s D stats with his treys have been pretty solid

  13. jdubs says:

    ay gimme rjax for 30!

    • jdubs says:
      (link)

      @jdubs: also thanks for the shoutout! never thought I’d say this but it feels good to be in second place hahaha… I definitely didn’t realize how tough this game is until I started making picks. I’m gunning for you Slim!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @jdubs: Hah you deserve it man! And nice pick tonight! If I don’t beat Slim, I def hope a commenter can bring him down!

  14. Ryan says:

    Only enough time to listen to top 10 scorers/picks today. I’m going with Jrue over AD. I may regret that one, but think he’s more likely to get heavy minutes than Davis in the event of a blowout.

    Btw JB, I talked to a developer friend of mine, and apparently it isn’t unusual for Apps to be brought to iOS first because Android takes a lot longer to code for, and has more red tape to clear through before being released.

    Always wondered why I saw a bunch of stuff being released for iOS first when Android users seem to outnumber iPhone users. And yes, the global market share is that large. Apple only controlled around 15% during the final quarter of 2015. I think the current US share is around 50/40 in Android’s favor.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: He’s a nice pick as well. AD just screamed off the page haha.

      Ah cool, and I actually asked them, and they think GooglePlay version will be out by baseball season, so it’ll definitely be there for NBA next year. I didn’t know the coding times were so vastly different, nice insight!

      Oh wow, I had no idea it was like that! I figured it was closer to 50/40 or even 55/35 for Apple…

  15. Jeremy says:
    (link)

    YAY I’m on the board. Make that 2 in a row, give me Jrue Holiday!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Jeremy: Yessir! Jrue got kinda close…

    What is your thought on korver ?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nont nontiskul: The lower minutes is annoying, so fringey in 12ers, not owning in 10ers, must own any deeper than 12

    10 team 9 cat h2h: my gobert and wiggins for his chris paul

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bob: Seems like a little too much, but dire PG need and good big man depth, it works

  18. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Yeah I know you’re not the hugest fan, unlike @slim and I, but I dropped porter for stanjo in my shallow 9team 14cat roto. Otto may outdo him in fg% and possibly 3s, but surely the D and brds and pts will be comparable with all those KCP mins yeah?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Well the KCP injury makes it totally fine until the ASB. I think that’s a solid move, but likely changing it up again after ASB when KCP is back

  19. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    Shallow 10 team league, just dropped KCP for StanJo and if that doesn’t go go through Jeff Green. Mistake? I have afeeling that I could pick him up again prior to him returning and see if StanJo can earn consistent minutes.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Nah that was a solid move in a shallower 10er, no need to hold onto the 75-100 range kinda guys if they’re hurt.

  20. Bulldogs says:
    (link)

    @JB Gilpin:
    @Slim:

    Hey guys,

    In 14 team h2h 9 cat, I am looking to reinstate Cody Zeller. I have Dudley and Terrence Ross whom I can dispose. Which one should I drop for Zeller?

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bulldogs: Hey man! I’d likely lose Dudley, he’s starting to put up dud-leys lately haha

  21. Kris says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    What do you think of this? I’m offering John Wall and Kanter for Whiteside and Porzingis?

    Here’s my team:
    Wall
    Cory Joseph
    Elfrid Payton
    Fournier
    DeJean-Jones
    Terrence Jones
    Frank Kaminsky
    Clint Capela
    Kanter
    Plumlee
    Green(GSW)
    Wiggins
    IL – Burks

    And I mean, I’m going all out on this.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Kris: Wow, makes you an AST punt. Value wise it’s solid, and changing to a big-man centric team is interesting. If you did it, I would look to move Elfrid as well

      • Kris says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Elfrid for who then? Well, I’m at rank 11 of 18 so why not let it fly.

        I wish I could’ve turn it around but I think it’s too late. Though, the second round is coming, Would you think if I move all my guards I still have a shot on winning this thing?

        Again, it’s an 18-team-league. We re-roster every year.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Kris: Probably for a PG type that is more a scorer. Monta Ellis? Either you gotta full embrace it or get another AST source out there

  22. hamtime says:
    (link)

    please rank the following FAs. I have justise but he bores the hell out of me:

    winslow, hezonja, t duncan, matt barnes

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: Yeah he has limited upside, I’ll go Barnes, Hezonja, Winslow, Duncan

  23. Wen says:
    (link)

    Hi JB, got a tough choice to make and need your help. Robin Lopez just hit the wire. Who should I drop or should I stay put?

    My roster in 12 team:
    Ish Smith, Rodney Hood, Isaiah Thomas, Joe Johnson, Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick, Stanley Johnson
    DeMarcus Cousins. Taj Gibson, Derrick Favors, Zach Randolph, Serge Ibaka, Markieff Morris

    I want to handcuff Crawford to Redick (best handcuff from last year) and Randolph is too valuable to drop. Also NYK has bad playoff schedule in 1st week.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wen: Even with bad playoff sched, Rolo should prob be owned. Even though Bulls have better playoff sched, so much can change between then and now, I would lose Taj. Well first I would prob lose Crawford, but I know you wanna handcuff…

  24. Billy Bone Jones says:
    (link)

    Recently chose Zeller over Len with a need for a big off the wire…

    Damn it Len you had to go and grab a random 18 boards?!??!??

    I know you like Len JB, but you like Zeller too…

    Who ya takin?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Billy Bone Jones: Haha those two are so close, mannnn, I think I’ll go Len ROS just because I could see Al Jefferson coming back and stealing some mins at some point. Short term I might stick with Zeller.

  25. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    Was offered Dirk for my knight. I’m tempted because of all the knight shutdown talk. Thoughts before the owner retracts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Hamtime: eesh Dirk will be headache too though… I’ll take Dirk though
