    Gimme Klay for 30! Dudes on fire recently. Well, on fire relative to what it is to be on fire for a normal shooter. He’s not dropping 50…yet.

    Anyway, I offered this trade to someone and they are down, I just don’t know if I should go through with it:

    MY Oladipo + Val for HIS Clarkson + Favors

    If you look at clarkson in the last month, he’s about 18-5-4-1 with very solid %s and under 2 TO. If you trust that he keeps this up, which I don’t see a reason for him not to, it doesn’t seem far different than oladipo. Actually, his efficiency makes him look even more appealing! And the upgrade from Val to Favors seems obvious, given that you trust his back… although Val doessss tend to have great post ASB runs.

    If you disagree with any of that^, pleaseee say so.

    So, another thing to take into account is Lakers’ playoff schedule. I probably won’t get a bye week, and I think their first playoff week is 2 games. But, like Slim says, I’d rather have the worst team in playoffs than the best team outside playoffs.

    So, all that being said, do you take the trade?

    Oh more more thing, I think it’s time I drop Elfrid. There’s too much working against him. Are both Collison and Winslow worthy pickups? I might get collison for the G stats but who do you think is more valuable?

    And thanks again JB for dealing with yet another way too long post hahhaa. I try to make them short I swear…

      @Threekola: Yeah I thought about Klay, seems like he kinda flames out on b2bs, but that might only be from 1 or 2 games I remember…

      Oh I’m def taking that deal! And I lovvvve Clarkson, totally buy this and it’s worth the risk of Favors back. So yup I agree!

      Yup Elfrid can go for Colly. Hahaha this doesn’t even touch the top 100 in length, youre totally good my man!

      • Threekola says:
        (link)

        Hahah not even top 100 in length. Such a fantasy way to describe the situation.

        Maybe if I was given some more PT I would hid top 100 in value…I blame Skiles.

        @JB Gilpin:

        Oh and don’t look now but Brandan wright with a solid line last night…

        You taking him over Taj?

          @Threekola: Hah, that’s how I measure things! Definitely not elite, barely draftable in a 10er 🙂

          SKIIIIIIIILES!

          And ummmm, nah prob not yet, close though. Def not a Taj fan either though…

    can you please rank these trade ideas. I am trying to reduce my risk as we head into the playoffs and not sure of Butler’s minutes or health if and when he comes back.

    1. My Butler for his Gay and Booker.
    2. Butler for Young and Covington
    3. Butler for Young and Myles
    4. Butler for Gay and Covington
    5. Butler for Gay ( he may counter with this)

    With Butler in IR slot, I would have to drop two from my squad…..Cole and Payton or Cole and Moore I imagine. Or?? My team:

    DeAndre, Hassan, Gortat, Okafor
    Ariza, Crowder, Deng, Evan Turner, PJ (streamer)
    Paul, Wall, Payton, Moore, Cole

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @John: Man, I think you’re easily doing all of those, Butler is too risky. You don’t really need bigs, so Gay and Booker is my fav, and yeah losing Cole and Payton is fine

      • John says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Thanks. If the trade falls apart again and I am stuck with Cole, do I drop him for CoJo? Neither great but with Gordon coming back and Toronto’s five games during playoff week, it could be a slight upgrade.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @John: Sure yeah I am good with that swap

    hahahaha the voice crack…your body can’t handle admitting that CJM is good! i might as well join slim and take him for the 30pt challenge tonight, he’s been hot and i always like taking guys against that jimmy softdick standaround time

    this was the funniest pod in a bit, awesome stuff guys!!

      @The Gintern: Haha it’s like an involuntary reflex! I had a little phlegm this morning, a little stuff, def aided the crack haha.

    Hi J.B.,
    Hope all is well. I’m in need of a PF. I picked up MIRZA from the heap. I thought Markieff’s leaving would give MIRZA a solid opportunity. But MIRZA has been a major meh so far. What are your projections for him ROS? Would you please rank Mirza, D. LEE, JaMychal Green, Leur, J. Winslow. Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Phranque (pronounced Frank): Hey man! Mirza will def hit 3s/score/get a handful of boards, and do it consistently, so that has some value. I might take Green first though, just for some STL/BLK upside. So Green, mirza, Winslow, Leuer, Lee

  13. Pau Right In the Kisser says:

    Yo!
    So Brandon Knight was dropped in my league and wondering if he’s worth using my wavier on him and who would I drop for him?

    9Cat H2H 12-teams
    My team:
    Smart, E. Gordon, Lowry, M. Barnes, P. Gasol, Mattews, Mahinmi, Gobert, Ish Smith, G. Hill, Crowder, Ariza, Whiteside

    I was thinking of dropping Smith for him, Smith is not doing enough and is a killer in the percentages. Don’t wanna drop Mahinmi since I need a boast in FGs and no good Cs in FA.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pau Right In the Kisser: Hmmmm, yeah it’s tough. Where are you in standings? If not 1 or 2 I’m probably holding

  14. Viz

    Can I take IT2/3 for 30?

    Also, would you do Covington and Tony Parker for Conley?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Patty Mills is my Homeboy: Damn, yup you could and did and he got maddddd close. Sure I like that upgrade!

  16. jonny says:
    (link)

    Would you trade lou williams and mahinmi for fournier and markieff? Don’t want to make on unnecessary risk on kieff if I don’t have to, but then again lou will is losing minutes.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jonny: Yeah with Russell and Clarkson entrenched, I do that deal. I’m not sleeping on the consistent nice minutes of Fournier either

      • jonny says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Went through with the deal. Praying that SKIIIIIILES doesn’t ruin this for me….

    I fucking seriously want to elbow both Oladipo and Dragic in the face right now for destroying my FG. Jesus. A combined 10/37 in the last two days, just fucking horrendous. Dipo even just went .500 from the foul line. Stuff like this stresses the fuck out of people

    • Dante Green says:
      (link)

      You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. Lillard and Ariza decided to join the fucking party. Thanks for destroying my FG you bloody bastards. I’m seriously flipping out right now

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dante Green: Haha, yeahhhhh I mean Ariza and Lillard you can kinda expect, Dragic and Oladipo shouldn’t be doing that. Well, at least FG% is only one cat, now you can stream the hell outta shooters!
