    Thanks for the review guys! I was really happy with my team too. Unfortunately, the commish changed the settings AFTER the draft – he took out fg made and ft made. So the only categories are 3s, pts, rebs, asts, stls, and blks. I was a little unsure but I traded Drummond for Blake Griffin, I just couldn’t resist the extra points/assists. I’m working on some deals to maybe trade Griffin though and maybe Lowry, and go for a guy like Westbrook along with some good big men.
    Another problem: the commish rigged the league. He got some random friend to just fill a spot in the league and trade him whoever he wants. He got DeMarcus Cousins for Monta Ellis and Jeff Green, seriously!
    I’ll be happy if I get second place though at this point.

      @CTMN: Whoa, whoa, whoa, after the draft?! That’s some fishy commishing. Yeah I like getting Blake there too. Hmmm, yeah now got the end of your comment, I would leave the league. Even more so if there’s money on it. That blows man, sorry to hear about that!

        @JB Gilpin: Nah there’s no money on it, just for fun. Otherwise I’d be a lot more angry! A bunch of guys are also pretty pissed about it. But in my other league I’m the commish and I definitely won’t pull anything like that! It kinda hurt the Lowry/Harden picks to take out fg and ft made but at least it helps Rubio, Elfrid, and Favors a little bit. Thanks for the thoughts.

          @CTMN: Hah, well you’re more tolerant than me, I would be dropping my whole team and screwing up the league!

            @JB Gilpin: Lmao you just gave me an idea…I’m gonna tell the other guys

          • CTMN says:

            @JB Gilpin: Would you do my Lowry and Henson for Teague and Pau?

              @CTMN: Ehhhhh, no I don’t think so. You lose the best player in the deal (who is the best by a good bit), and Henson gets a minor boost since FT% isn’t a cat, even though he’s not Pau obviously.

                @JB Gilpin: Thanks, I was kind of unsure because Pau is pretty good but he’s an injury and minutes risk with Gibson, and as you said, Lowry’s the best guy. My other offers have been terrible lowball offers. I had Lowry and Favors for Teague and Pau, Lowry and Draymond for Teague and Plumlee. Ugh.

                    @JB Gilpin: Lol I got one offer Lowry, Markieff and Henson for Teague, Gortat and Carroll. Uh NO!

    Guys, I appreciate what you do for sure. Have read all your stuff since I found you a month ago

    Ppl accustomed to how good the baseball side of Razzball is are probably surprised by how slow moving the basketball side is. I know it’s just preseason tho

    Also, you should become more thick skinned. There is no point in letting that comment bother you. Feedback is healthy IMO

      @Snacks13: I agree, maybe it wasn’t in the best taste, but hey, it was a long day. Like I replied on there, you can question our ranks but don’t question our effort.

      Grey obviously owns the site and this is his main job. Plus there’s what – 20 writers? I think we’re a little more tight-knit here. And honestly, more how’d I like it.

      Yes, there will be a lot more content in season. A big issue is I put a ton of time in ranks and every update takes as much time as 3-4 in-season wrap ups. Also with growth comes more expectations, we’re easily putting out 150% more content than what was up at this point in preseason last year.

      Finally, we put a bigger emphasis on interaction. I love Grey to death and know he gets easily 4-5 times the amount of comments, but our/my responses are miles more in-depth. Can’t question that.

      If that guy had said what you did, in a constructive candor, I would’ve just responded like right now and been fine. But he was trying to rile me up, so indeed he wins haha. Just was having a little fun.

      Thanks for the thoughts!

      @Snacks13: with all due respect, healthy feedback is healthy.call a spade a spade, man. scott’s comment was nothing more than a thoughtless self entitled one, no reason to confuse things here

    JB actually got it right in the end! It’s more of a “show” sound… but lmao at slim’s actual sigh-oh! Thanks for the advice guys… the korver pick at 81 is something i do regret but it was kind of a panic pick like hayward and derozan on my queue getting snatched up 2,3 picks earlier. And i was actually draft top pg’s to trade since everyone else was ignoring them so yeah i’m going to try that! Great stuff as always razzball!

      @Sio: I had a feeling I had it right on that second try! Haha Slim is hilarious… Still laughing about that… Man, if either of those guys fell to 81, what a value! Have both right there at 50ish. Thanks so much man!

    Wow. Firstly, thanks for reviewing my h2h squad – loved the feedback (and the praise). Secondly, y’all pronouncing lasandro was an absolute hoot! And on top of that, naming your episode in reference to me? I was geeking out when chatting to my gf about all this. Honored boys, and keep up the great work. Your biggest fan (in the Southern Hemisphere at least)!
