    RAZZUP bros?!!! thoughts on picking wall or even lillard in the 2nd round and forgetting draft strategy with picking an elite big there? doing some mocks, and its definitely crazy compared here in rcl. though i expect my friends to be better than mocks. well hopefully. hehe

      @MAC: Razzup man?! Yeah I would be totally fine if Lillard or Wall fell to me in the 2nd! Certainly would go for bigs with my next two picks, but I would be thrilled at the value if those fall

    Hey fellas,

    Got one more team to lay on you here for review purposes. Any moves I should look to make? I like it, but my glasses have been known to be rose-colored. Thanks!

        I sent Horford/Teague/G. Hill and got Curry/McBuckets/CJ Miles and rookie first rd picks in 2015 and 2016. Felt like I had the depth to do it. What choo think?

        Miles and Capela are the drops here if I need to, right? Might be some upside to add off the wire. Thanks!

    Hey Guys!

    I’m in a 20 Team 9 CAT H2H League. We drafted before Yahoo Updated the ratings:

    James Harden
    Jeff Teague
    Andrew Wiggins
    Danilo Gallinari
    Terrance Jones
    Darren Collison
    Alec Burks
    Jusuf Nurkic
    Omer Asik
    Kyle O’Quinn
    Jerian Grant
    Greivis Vasquez
    Clint Capela

    I moved some players to the IR and picked up:
    Dwight Powell
    Bismack Biyombo

    I plan to stash Powell in the IR spot because I realized that I don’t have to drop him once he’s healed, especially that I’m in a 20 team league where pick ups are very scarce. I’ll move him into the regular roster come the 2nd half, what do you think?

    Also who would you drop first since Nurkic is in my other IR spot and I’m moving him in once the season starts. (I’m for dropping Biyombo so far.)

    Thanks guys! Catch you on draft day for the JB vs Slim RCL.

    Hey guys,

    Loving listening to you lot again as we get close to season 15/16. What are your thoughts on KJ McDaniels this year. Do you think he will get enough minutes to make those 3s, Stls and blocks relevant?

  5. CTMN says:

    Haha, Patterson has been crap for the Raptors, every preseason game so far. Carroll has been fantastic in-game with solid stats.
    Lowry has been incredible, preseason or not. The weight loss should help his durability too, maybe keep him from getting hurt late in the season.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @CTMN: Hahahaha it was funny Slim got his Patterson dig in. Agree, you can say “it’s preseason” but when you’re throwing up 40 in 28 minutes, you gotta buy harder in

          Yes very good news, Slim brought that up briefly at the end of the show. Didn’t have AST numbers go up, but hopefully they do this year and it helps his FG% a little bit trying to facilitate and not forcing his own shots

    Hey guys, thanks for all the great work. The results are in for my first ever RCL draft and I’d love your opinion (on the air or off, whatever you prefer). It’s the London RCL, 12 man h2H standard 9 cat. I know I’m light on assists, but I’m not sure if I should flat-out punt that (and if I do, who I would have to get rid of) or just see where it all goes.

    JB –

    Whats good? Got I conundrum of sorts in my 12 team, h2h, keeper league. Draymond’s owner desperately wants to trade him since his team is loaded and we only keep 4… I’ve got 4 very good keepers in Curry, Paul, George, Whiteside.

    He offered me Draymond for my 7th round pick (79th overall). My problem is, this: is it worth doing the deal and starting with Curry, Paul, George, Dray Dray and throwing Whiteside back?

    My first pick is 55 overall. I could possibly land Whiteside again, but I would highly doubt it. I also am trying to explore trading George or Lowry for a pick, but as of now acquiring Draymond is the only real move before me.

    What are your thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: What’s good man?! Mannnn that’s a pickle. I like Dray more in a vaccuum, but you could use a big man. Plus great FT% protects him. I think the icing on the cake is you have to give up that pick, and I don’t think it’s worth it losing Whiteside with your core there.

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah, it is tough, but not a bad situation to be in. I could make the move and then work on flipping George for a 6th or 7th to recoup my lost pick.

        Then roll with Dray, Curry, Paul, Whiteside…or just stand pat and still have a decent starting 4.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @OldMilwaukeePounders: I think I’m probably standing pat because then you risk not finding a great deal for George in time…

            The league that you were trying to join is already full! If you would still like to join, let the commissioner know they should raise the maximum number of teams.

              Alan’s league still needs one more manager on the RCL spot if you still wanna play! Certainly don’t need to make a new league as well if you’re trying to just join a league 🙂

      @napster:
      Omg I have Teague as my first point guard. But look at this roster. Teague gets better every year and this year I predict he will improve on 3’s, steals, and assists with a better FG%. AND .. I got Dragic as backup. But honestly, if you can’t get the top 3 point guards, there will be a point guard that appears during the season that you can pick up. Or such as been the case for me over the last few years, so I don’t reach for Wall if DeMarcus is available as pic #7 because I will just wait for Teague as pick three after I grab Ibaka for pick two. I respectfully disagree. Let’s just see who wins their league this year. Me : I am currently undefeated since I started fantasy basketball 3 years ago — after being undefeated in fantasy baseball for the last 8 years.

    • napster says:
      (link)

      @napster: I realized I forgot one name

      Darren Collison PG,SG

      he was my last pick. And I agree with your opinion that Collison will be more valuable this year under Coach Karl. Collison will work point and SG, and get at least 28-30 minutes a game with the 3’s, steals, and Free Throws to boot. Rondo will probably get traded in my opinion.

        @JB Gilpin: JB you rock. I was just illustrating that it is possible to have Teague as your main point guard and still draft well. I agree however that my competition is nothing close to an RCL — but then again i have not been invited. Personally, I do think I have what it takes to be a fair competitor.

        Thanks for the insight. I love you guys.

            @JB Gilpin:
            For both teams: if you had to bench 3 players (all players are playing on the same day), who would they be?

              @Jason: I mean, that’s kinda a tough question, depends on your opponent, I would be sure to load on bigs if they’re strong there, and same with guards, etc. In a vacuum, bottom 3 on both look like the true bottom 3

    Would love you guys to review my team on the pod if you could!

    1. (10) Damian Lillard PG
    2. (15) Serge Ibaka PF,C
    3. (34) Chris Bosh PF,C
    4. (39) Andrew Wiggins SG,SF
    5. (58) Elfrid Payton PG
    6. (63) Danilo Gallinari SF
    7. (82) Terrence Jones SF,PF
    8. (87) Robert Covington SG,SF
    9. (106) Deron Williams PG
    10. (111) Aaron Gordon PF
    11. (130) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope SG
    12. (135) Myles Turner C
    13. (154) Omer Asik PF,C

    After picking Lillard, Wiggins, Payton I decided to punt FG%. I got sniped on Rubio in the 7th round, which would have fit my build perfectly. Then got sniped again on Tyson Chandler in the 9th round when I needed boards.

    So with my team, would you trade Terrance Jones + Deron Williams for Rubio + Chandler? Would you give up more to try and get a deal done? I seem to be really low on boards…

    Thanks.

      @Patrick Patterson is awesome: Yup we got it! We kinda sprinted though, didn’t see the trade. I lovvvvve rubio, but nah I don’t think I’d do that deal I like Jones a tad too much. If they’d take Covington I’d do that!
