Happy day of love, Razzball Nation!  On today’s Pod, nothing signifies the power of love than doing a Podcast solo!  Slim is off for today, but I still bring you the sultry tones while I talk about the Jusuf Nurkic trade, a big weekend from his former teammate Nikola Jokic, and just how good I thought Willy Hernangomez looked over the weekend.  I then review a couple trade rumors, then preview tonight’s games and our 30-point challenge picks.

      @Shahed: Hahaha, yeah my inner monologue just goes all over the place, and not only did they get mentioned, but back to back in the same point! Haha.

      KAT it is! And yeah, it’s time for that old thing…

    What up giggling giant!!

    SO I was talking to @grey about spring training….I am actually going to be at a nats-tigers game in West Palm Beach March 13th….any chance you’re going to be around there then?

    Grey tried getting my ass out to Zona but I am not ready to retire yet.

    LEt me know…would love to watch a game on your shoulders while we talk about the virtues of Zach Davies and the heyday of the human fan Jose HErnandez….(sidenote I am an Expos freak from Montreal so expect some Selig Smashing)
    More importantly…..basketball and stuff…..would you drop Bazemore or MArvin Williams to get Middleton off the IL?? In a vaccuum I would also consider dropping Brogdon but I love that kid and need the assists….

    LEmme know about the ball game and thanksfor the advice En Avance En Francais.

      @OtisNixonLovesTimRainesCrackRocks: What’s up man?! Oh cool! Damnnnnnn, you’re just gonna miss me. I’ll be there Mar 8-10, flight leaves early the 11th. Can you come any sooner? Haha.

      If not we can still talk Davies and that change-up and baseball in the comments!

      Yeah def can lose Marvin to stash Middleton. I think that makes most sense.

      Any time! (i would try a French closing here, but would fail Les Miserbles!)

        @JB Gilpin: wel gosh darn it.
        I will be in the Bahamas for gambling and other such debaucherous type activities for my sister’s husband’s bachelor party…I would love to say “ehhh screw it spring training and Zach Davies talk wins’ but sadly…no….no it does not haha.

        I am all about talking baseball in basketball comments. Grey knows my comments are off the god damn wall so get used to it!
        Can we also plot out a plan to make Selig vanish?

        Well I actually HAVE Middleton already just stuck in my IL spot and have no one else to drop to get him active. Thanks for the advice….or the push over the ledge as that was my thought too.

        I am going to give you additional credit and assume you purposely misspelled “LEs Miserables” to just insult French as a whole.

        Just a thought….but you guys should try tp make it out to Montreal for the exhibition game this year.

        It’s Pirates-Jays April 1

        I’ll be the guy hurling grow your dreds back type insults at McCutchen. I also might have a sign explaining how Selig loves delivering felatio to Loria while David Samson videotapes it. I’ll let that be a surprise.

        Oh…I am going off the board and saying Jimmy Buckets for 30+ tonight.

        Yup. That’s my first guess and a cheapie as he was just announced to start.

          @OtisNixonLovesTimRainesCrackRocks: Oh and hypothetically…..if you WERE going to buy tickets for the game in Montreal….where would you look to buy them?

          *generous shameless Seatgeek plus

          You can send me a canadian $20 in the mail k thanks.

            @OtisNixonLovesTimRainesCrackRocks: Wait, sister’s husband’s bachelor party?! You mean fiance, or are you Mormon?

            I never got too mad at Selig, BREWERS BIAS! Plus he went hard after Braun (that was still Selig I think…) so didn’t show any favoritism…

            Hah, slight purpose was indeed there for L”Franch. Hah, while that would be mad fun to get some poutines, I’m gonna be locked into final draft weekend 🙂 Got REL drafts then.

            What’s Butler doing getting 12 dimes and not scoring more?!?!?!

            Hah thanks for the plug, I’ll get working on that 🙂

    Hey guys, i feel like i need to change somethin or punt another cat aside from Fts in my 10team

    G-Dragic,Holiday,Bev,Oladipo,GaryHarris,Swaggy
    F-LBJ,Covington,Ariza,MarcusMorris
    C-Whiteside,Deandre,Bebe

    IL-Lin,Middleton

    FA-Okafor,Zubac,Smart,MKG,AGordon,Tyreke,Rondo

    So Im thinkin of dropping Swaggy and activating Middleton then drop Marcus for Zubac/Okafor/Smart?

    Feel like I should punt pts along with my 3s since elite teams are really strong with pts. Need more blks as well so think its Marcus for Zubac. Hopefully solidify my 4cats for playoffs which should be FG,reb,stl,blk and average in ast,3s,TOs

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Tyler: Man, Marcus was good last night! Tough to drop…. I think Swaggy could go, and maybe can try to trade Ariza/Covington, they’re runing your FG. Although I know you need the 3s… Middleton will hopefully help. Zubac isn’t FT punt and a little risky and Marcus Smart FG% scares me, I’d only do the Swaggy drop/Middleton activation so far.

    Happy Valentine’s Day mi amor!! Such a great solo pod and I fkn love the cussing! Hope you and the missus have a good one 😘

    Gimme that catty KAT for 30!

    So I’ve got Noel in my 10er because I need the Obrds.. he’s not all that awesome in that dept but would you rather him or stash Pau, Zubac or Enes for now? Stls and blks aren’t a need and that’s what Noel does best haha. Pts and Obrds are all I need to tip me over the edge and the owner of Jokic is a stubborn bastard. So til I get a trade done, I gotta work that wire with my limited acquisitions (only 35 left boo).

      @Lasandro: Happy Valentine’s day man! Haha. Thanks for listening, glad you liked it! Ah, KAT’s a good one, was btwn him/Wiggy/Kyrie.

      Ummmm, I think I’d just roll with Nerlens a little longer, then maybe switch to Pau after the all star break if he’s still out there

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @jb Gilpin: ooh what about A Gordon now??

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @jb Gilpin: Len is also a beast on the Obrds if he gets the minutes

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @JB Gilpin: Man, KAT was sooo close. I realise Wiggs scored a lot tonight, but a TON of his shots are so damn ill-advised and KAT was smoking early in the game. I really don’t like those two on the same team. Lavine and KAT is a far better fit, as Zach is at the very least a willing passer. Even one of the Minny broadcasters mentioned a few games back that Wiggins may have the worst case of tunnel-vision when he has the ball – he constantly draws defenses but fails to see the easy pass. He and Shabazz have this in common, SMH.

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @JB Gilpin: Well, forget Pau and Gordon – both just got picked up. Hm, guess it’s down to stashing Kanter or Len (in hopes for a trade), or grab Frye for now, which may be a nice option. Though I can’t really expect him to crash the boards as hard as he did today.. Zubac is still there, too.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Yeah I got that sense with Wiggins too, while watching LaVine. LaVine is this unreal 3pt shooter, and Wiggins would take a backdown fadeaway over 3 guys and never kick it out. Oh yeah, i made a GIF of it! https://gfycat.com/PracticalScaredCoati

        I’d still ride Captain N for now… Zubac up and down minutes, and I dunno about Frye, agree on the boards.

    As the song goes, “What’s love got to do with it!”

    Give me Lowry for 30 tonight, sorry JB!

    Hopefully Slim will understand that he made a mistake and will come back to you very soon!

    On the fantasy side of things I’m thrilled to having acquired Marc Gasol in the JB vs Slim RCL and getting ready to compete in the playoffs!!

      @Irk No D Nowitzki: Got to do, got to do with it! Haha. Hah all good! I think Slim and I will be in a nice love boat Wed morning 🙂

      Yeah man, I’m about to get bumped from the playoffs, injuries killing me and playing the #1 then #2 these past 2 weeks hah

    Finally had time to listen to the pod today, your inner monologue is ridiculous haha, loved it. Gonna go different and roll with Jimmy Buckets tonight, hopefully he plays hah

      @The Gintern: Hahaha thanks man. Hard to believe that my inner voice can get translated to pen and paper hah (well, keyboard and computer).

      Ballsy, I like it!

      • The Gintern says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Man, coulda worked out if he shot better than 2-1o with no 3s!

        How would you order these guys for an end of the bench spot: Dedmon, Juancho, Montrezl, Javale

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @The Gintern: I know right?! Kept the scoring up with Ft though haha. Hmmmm, well if like a weekly league, I would def Juancho. Or daily and youre in playoffs. Needing some big man stats now, I might Dedmon

    Using my 1 of 2 allowed pickups later on Chriss. I was thinking Murray but I wanna first see that the Nuggets unload a couple of their guys ‘fore making the move. Lin and Gordon could also be the pickups but BKIN is a mess and I don’t want anything to do with em, while Gordon I think is just still too raw to warrant a pickup (playing at PF won’t make a huge difference I just know haha).

    Dunn could also be a pickup but just like Murray I wanna see first a Rubio deal fore making any move on him. I’m just warming up on Chriss right now, I think his pathway to minutes after ASB is there. His ability to rack up steals and blocks, and decent points and boards should help my team. He may be a problem in FG but as long as he doesn’t hurt my FT then I’m good with that.

      @Dante Green: Yeah agree on BKN hate, and I like Chriss too. I dunno man, I kinda like the Gordon upside! I might have him be the second add. Nugs would have to trade jameer for Murray to have immediate success, I dunno if anyone is taking Jameer…
