      @Jake: I’ll go Elfrid unless AST/STL were both really strong on your team

        @JB Gilpin:

        with oj mayo going down does that give Bayless 30+ mins every night? Could put up big numbers!

          @I’m Harden for you Love: Yes to likely 30+ minutes, no to consistent big numbers, last game out, 40 mins of 6/2/3. Very ThrAGNOFfy

    Wanna get my pick in before listening today- gimme Lowry. I’m sure the pod will be lovely as always!

      @The Gintern: Yeahhhh I thought about Lowry or DeRozan but decided to go a little different… Thanks so much man, thanks for listening!

    Oooooh, dropping one of Redick or A-Bradley is tempting. Gary Harris, P-Bev, and Deng are all available, and all sexy. What’s a guy to do while he mourns the decline of Zingis and Gobert? Last time I asked you and Slim were split.

    Team: Wall, Teague, Clarkson, Redick, A-Bradley, Duchess, Batum, Durant, Zingis, Gobert, Gortat

      @Joe: Damn well I still think you need one 3 pt shooter, but Deng is prob near must-own too. Too many options! Give me Harris for Bradley. Thing with Deng is he really only offers additional boards over Redick, and your boards look good. I would prob keep Redick

    Speaking of good FG% please who shoot 3’s and Stl what you think about Fourier? He was dropped in my league and I’m thinking of dropping either Myles Turner or Sully. I’m looking at playoff match ups and I get a bye for the first week and Sully only plays 3 games the following week where Fourier plays 4. Also with Olynik back its possible Sullys minutes go back down. The only thing I would really miss is his Sully’s Rebs.

    Is Fourier a safe pick up or do I keep Sully? if I miss out on Fourier as a back up I Matt Barnes is also available.

      @I’m Harden for your love: Uggghhhh yeah i almost dropped Turner in a league myself, but decided to hold on. Yeah with playoffs in mind, no reason to hold a guy with less games, Fournier isn’t really “safe” though, since friggin Skiles coaches. Also a factor to consider, I know the Magic were the worst team for playing on off-schedule nights, i.e. Fournier might only make your lineup if a daily league 2 of those 4 or something. But if weekly, yeah for sure making that move.

        @JB Gilpin:

        So M.Turner and Fournier both play the same amount of games since I have a bye for week one, Still the only think Turner does better than Fournier is FG% and Blocks which I’ll take a chance on…. Thanks JB

    Benching be damned! I’m taking Kevin Love for 30!

      @Connor: Hah nice!

    @JB

    12 team 9 cat H2H. Would you add Wes Matthews or Ed Davis for anyone? It looks like I’m going to squeak into the playoffs as 6th seed. Team:

    PG: Rubio, D’Angelo Russell, Elfrid Payton, Darren Collison, D.J. Augustin
    SG: Evan Fournier, George Hill
    SF: LeBron, Wiggins
    PF: Draymond, Manimal, Markieff Morris
    C: Jokic, Myles Turner

    • Everybody Loves Draymond says:
      (link)

      Tony Allen and PJ Tucker are some other notable FA

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Everybody Loves Draymond: The only real replaceable guy I see is Augustin. I think I might get upside of Matthews and hope he picks it up, big man is a need but I dont trust those other 3 guys to do enough

        • Everybody Loves Draymond says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin:

          Thanks. The only other big men I see on the wire are Zaza, Tyson Chandler, Biyombo, Cody Zeller….. Nothing great.

              @Everybody Loves Draymond: Mehhhhh yeah not too big on those. I wanna wait until we’re closer to a Bosh return, I imagine he hasn’t been working out while the blod clots break up, so I bet he’ll need a little time

    always great stuff! got two #1 seeds locked up been such a fun season thanks for the help!

    do you think Hello From the Whiteside could use anything for the playoffs (2 rounds of 2 weeks. evens out schedules)?

    RJax
    Clarkson
    Ish Smith
    George Hill
    Conley
    Harden
    Wiggins
    Aaron Gordon
    Matt Barnes
    Crowder
    Tobias Harris
    Paul Millsap
    Whiteside
    Gobert
    Porzingis

    9 cat 10 team league, usually lose TO. One or two guys will end up a streaming spot, probably Barnes and/or whichever guard is most cuttable. Besides TO, my weakest cats appear to be FT% and AST. After making the most adds in the league on the year I haven’t made a move in weeks, seems like I’m good holding given the most intriguing wire names I see are JaMychal Green., Zaza, Tony Allen, Bayless. Think I’ll wait until I need to stream, any thoughts? thx

      @dom: Thanks man! Hopefully we helped a tad!

      I really like Green I think he’s earning more and more minutes. Your anchor bigs are great, but I think you could use one more, I would prob add him over Barnes.

      Surprised AST has been tough. FT% should be massively improving too with how Whiteside is shooting freebies now!

    GIve me Kyrie Irving for 30!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: I almost went there! Decided not to since it could be a 30 pt lead for them at half ha!

  9. Paul says:
    (link)

    Russell for 30

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Paul: Damn he had a good game tho!

  10. miles proudfoot says:

    Would you drop any of the following for Rodney Hood? Danny Green, Al Jeff, AGordon, M Turner, Rob Covington? Who would be your second choice?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @miles proudfoot: Defffffffff adding Hood. Prob losing Green. Maybe Jefferson if you were loaded at big

  11. jdubs says:

    Kawhi for 30!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jdubs: Oh noooooooooooo! On 15 shots too! one friggin’ point short… Slim is waltzing to the W now….

  12. Ryan says:

    I can’t catch up with Slim tonight because I’m also taking Booker for 30 tonight! Btw, it feels awesome when half of my squad falls under the noteworthy/epic performances category. Russ, Lillard, Jrue, Whiteside, and Booker have just been bonkers.

    Honestly, I’d take Whiteside at the turn under JB’s unlikely scenario. Just looked it up and he is #9 on the season in per game value (so already first round material). Geez if he can maintain a high 70’s or low 80 %s? I’m definitely taking Jrue if he makes it into the late third, but no way would I take him over IT 2/3 unless the Celtics go out and get a big time scorer during the offseason.

    Really digging JaMychal too. Got to see him play against BOS yesterday, and he looked like the lone ray of sunshine on that team. Should he go back to 20 minutes? I say NO! Man I wish I coulda picked him up.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: Awesome pick man! I’ll update the board at some point today, begrudgingly… haha

      Yeah his per game is obscene, especially with this run right now. Still a lot of pieces to fall with the ranks, but that all seems right.

      I got him in 2/4 RCLs about a week ago before this last 3 monster games, and he was already owned in 2 of mine at only 5% owned overall?!?! RCLs are tough man…

  13. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    After tonight’s horrible game by Korver, it is only fitting that I drop him for JaMychal! Hah

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Dante Green: Hah nice, doin that 1000%!

  14. What do you think about the situation in Portland? I m curious to know how the front court rotations will develop.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Prince Balis: Hah well they’ve had almost this full season to develop and it continues to morph. I was pretty low on both Aminu and Leonard in my ranks, but Leonard is better than Vonleh… With Plumlee’s FT/consistency/TO issues, I think I like Leonard the most, but I am not trying to own any in a 12er
