    I’m back with another squad in a h2h 20-teamer! what are your thoughts – it’s basically a razzball allstar squad + Vince Carter

    PG Oladipo
    SG Brandon Knight
    G Jrue Holiday
    SF Tobias Harris
    PF Anthony Davis
    F Spencer Hawes
    C John Henson
    Util Vince Carter
    Util D.J. Augustin

    BN Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    BN Rudy Gobert
    BN James Ennis

    So pissed; I could’ve had Bargnani and Hickson with the last 2 picks but they were swooped right ahead of me.

    To give you an idea of what the wire is looking like – Copeland is the most owned player. And I’m thinking I might attempt to switch Ennis for him…

    Other than that, any and all thoughts are appreciated as always.

    Thanks honkey!

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: Yo dude!

      Hahaha at “Razzball Allstar + Carter”. Ask, yeah Bargnani has some value, sadly. Hickson… Ehhh, I dunno, I wanna see him on the court first. I’d keep Ennis over Copeland, Copeland is a decent NBA player but I don’t know if he has any upside behind making a handful of threes.

      That’s a ridiculous team in a 20 teamer. Davis and Henson is plenty of blocks plus Gobert, awesome PG depth, since you have so many guys playing minutes you might lose TO most weeks, but I think you should win most of everything else. The Honkey abides!

        @JB Gilpin: sweet. thanks man!

      JB Gilpin says:

      @John W.: I’m not a Dwight guy at all, + Stephenson is semi-FT puntish. Even with Dwight, I think you’re behind in blocks too since he’s regressing there. Lin seems like a reach at 56 too. CP3 is a beast obviously, but I don’t think you have enough dimes past him.

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Philzilla: One more! You move the draft back? Sorry the RCL buzz is fading, cmon Razzball!

  3. hanns says:

    I’m thinking if I should try to trade affalo and henson for someone. I think I am a bit lacking in points,3’s, ft, and fg so I want to be strong in at least one of those. I am strong in assits, o-rebounds, rebounds, steals, and blocks. and I am practically punting TO’s.

    maybe affalo and henson for wesley mathews to shore up the 3’s? I think I can win ft’s if i deal jordan…but he’s kind of a core on my team. I’m having a lot of trouble trying to come up with a trade!

    12 team, 10 CAT(offensive rebounds), PG, SG, SF, PF, C, Util, Util, Util, Util, and 5 bench.

    1. (11) John Wall (Was – PG)
    2. (14) Serge Ibaka (OKC – PF,C)
    3. (35) DeAndre Jordan (LAC – C)
    4. (38) Ricky Rubio (Min – PG)
    5. (59) Victor Oladipo (Orl – PG,SG)
    6. (62) Trevor Ariza (Hou – SG,SF)
    7. (83) Markieff Morris (Pho – PF,C)
    8. (86) Robin Lopez (Por – C)
    9. (107) Arron Afflalo (Den – SG,SF)
    10. (110) Draymond Green (GS – SF)
    11. (131) Gorgui Dieng (Min – C)
    12. (134) John Henson (Mil – PF,C)
    13. (155) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Det – SG)
    14. (158) P.J. Tucker (Pho – SG,SF)

      JB Gilpin says:

      @hanns: Yeah Henson/Dieng/RoLo – I think with Ibaka DeAndre on your front line, moving one makes sense. Henson + Afflalo for Wes Matthews is awesome to me! You can float some offers, but I might wait to see if Dieng or Henson starts off really hot then move whichever one of them can bring back the most.

      • hanns says:

        @JB Gilpin:

        ok thanks for the advice. Hopefully both get hot!

          @hanns: Yessir, and I think they will! Just need minutes!

  4. CTMN says:

    I think you misunderstood me on KCP, I wanted him but he was taken before my pick!
    I took Knight over Payton for the points and 3s like Slim said, cause I thought I needed some given my earlier picks were lacking that a bit. Calderon also helped the 3s, my only big 3s guy was Lowry up until then.
    As I cleared up on another comment I made, MCW was taken at 95, just before me at 96 unfortunately. I remembered later, I was about to take him over Knight or Calderon! But I think it worked out OK.
    I’ll look to trade West. Do you guys think I need any specific categories that I should target in a trade for West, or should I just try to trade for the best possible value player? I’m not sure if I have any weaknesses…

    • CTMN says:

      @CTMN: Oh and thanks for the review!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @CTMN: ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh my bad! Yeah after I said I wanted Payton more, I think I kinda backtracked by the end of that line of convo.

        Ah gotcha on MCW. Yeah he would be a beast in a non-TO and I’m not worried about him being out so long.

        I would wait until West is on the floor and actually playing, right now his value is down while hurt. Probably best buy low you can find, preferably a scorer – I think you’re fine there but I think it fits a need.

        Thanks for listenin!

        • CTMN says:

          @JB Gilpin: What do you think of West for Markieff? I’m also gonna try maybe West for Afflalo and Taj Gibson or something like that.
          Something that’s come up: I’ve had Curry and Sullinger for AD offered and I said maybe…do you think if I add maybe Favors and/or Noel that I’ll have enough blocks to do the trade? And would it help me ultimately? I’m probably not gonna do it, it’s just interesting.
          Good job on the pod

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:

            @CTMN: I’m working on re-ranks now and will have Kieff higher. And the Afflalo one I like too. So those I would offer..

            Nah, if I have AD I’m holding on 🙂 haha

            • CTMN says:

              @JB Gilpin: Yeah I thought so on AD, just a crazy one.
              I offered the Markieff one and he said he’s not taking any Pacers guys – to quote him, “If I took a blender and put shit in it. Then turned it on for 10 minutes that is the pacers” LOL!
              I’ll see about the Afflalo one…
