        @JB Gilpin: I have Wro-tang for 11 steals!

      @Bye Felicia: Crazy game going on, he’s got 5 going into OT

      @hanns: You’re looking good heading into OT with 27!

    Which side do you like better in this trade? Kobe, P Bev, and Deron Williams for Lillard, Isaiah Thomas, and Jamaal Crawford. Also was thinking of switching I.T. for RoLo.

      @The Tristan Thompson Conundrum: I’m ridin Kobe till his legs fall off LOL I own him on one team and he’s going to put up solid numbers all year. I just can’t trade a 30/6/6/1 potential every night player. I understand the risk involved with owning a 36 year old. I just like Kobe, and had to own him on at least 1 of my teams. I’d take harden for him though

        @Bye Felicia: Pssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh of course you’d take Harden for Kobe haha

      @The Tristan Thompson Conundrum: I like getting Lillard, I think he’s the best/safest in the deal. If you needed a big, I’m good moving IT2 for RoLo!

      • The Tristan Thompson Conundrum says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: @Bye Felicia: 6 and 6? I think more like 3.5 assists 3.5 rebs. Plus killing the FG% and TOs. But I am giving the Kobe side. He has RoLo and IT2 so I was between one of the 2 of them.

    batum for rubio+deandre? which side do you prefer? 11 cat 16m

      @hamtime: to add to this, who can i target if i offer elfrid payton in a trade? looking for someone w more sustainable overall value. thanks

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @hamtime: I’d take Rubio side. Ummm, top 70ish player on draft day? He’s looking good, I wouldn’t sell for much lower

  4. hammer says:

    Thoughts on buying low on ‘melo right now? would you give up aldridge + someone else decent to get him?

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @hammer: Sure , who’s the throw in?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @hammer: We talked about him on the pod, I wouldn’t give much of anything on top of LA for him

  5. Bye Felicia says:

    Tony Wroten can ball, but his TO’s & % ‘s need to improve. He can damn near win steals every week by himself. Already has 3 in the 1st 8 mins tonight. But he also has 5 TO’s. In a league without TO he would be a mfing boss!

      @Bye Felicia: 8 cat king! Not to be confused with Nat King Cole

    Hey JB

    What can you tell me about Cody Zeller? Is he worth a pick up in a 16 team H2H league?

    If so who is the drop?

    Mason Plumlee or Brandan Wright or Otto?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dan The Silly Met Fan: He’s a decent role player… On the fringe maybe of ownable, but I’m not dropping any of those 3 guys right now for him.

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks Dude

    Noel injured his ankle tonight I see. Oh, of course he did because I own him on both my RCL and REL team. My RCL now has Durant, Oladipo, Noel, Val, Calderon injured, and Amir and Roberson having to be dropped due to injury this week, otherwise risking having 7/13 roster spots taken by injured players. That’s my 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th amd 11th round picks out. I need to complain here to keep from crying.

    I’m thinking of changing my RCL team name to OKC. Seems fitting.

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Yikesssssssssssssssssss. We are here for you, this is a healing place. I’ll trade you for Noel, I’ll pay a nice price with REL depth

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I think for a $12 Noel you’d probably have to pry him from my cold dead hands, lol.

        Can I just say that, despite not being all that good, the Jazz look pretty good when you watch them. They’re offense just flows, incredible ball movement, great transition, just fun to watch. Too bad they have no D whatsoever.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @A Hill O’ Beans: Sorta the same can be said for the Bucks who I’m watching. they’re in every game! Yeah I figured Noel would be a toughie, but I could offer like 3 quality guys if you need depth!

  8. A Hill O' Beans says:

    Marcus Smart draining 3s tonight. First time I’ve seen him and he looks better than I thought he would. You don’t see the O matching the D for him I guess eh?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @A Hill O’ Beans: 3-7 from deep after 2-14 the first 3 games and was even worse in preseason. so nah, p[lus he had a pretty shiity game with those 4 TO and not much else

    So Joe Johnson was one of my sleeper picks that I snagged in the 7th round of my 10 team H-2-H points league but I don’t think he’s going to sustain how he’s playing right now through the whole season (22-7-5). I wasn’t expecting him to play this good, I picked him up because I needed a SG/SF in that round and I knew he was going to still put up solid numbers. His usage rate hasnt been this high since ’06. He’s currently ranked #29 on ESPN’s player rater based on the leageus scoring system. I think this is the highest value he’ll have so I want to see what I can get through a trade?

    Who would you be targeting that will outperform him for the rest of the season that would be a fair trade. Position doesnt matter.

    Thanks in advance.

      @mamba: Yeah I wasn’t big on him, slow game tonight other than the 22 Pts. Ariza? Probably wouldn’t work. Collison? I buy him, decent game tonight. I’d maybe look for a team with only 1 or 2 SG/SF and could use his elig

    dirk nowitzki/ deron williams/ jordan hill for cp3/ tim duncan

    which side would you want?

    i heard reports about deron williams sore ankles already, probably stay away from trading for him dont you think?

    • hamtime says:
      (link)

      @needtosell: FA pool is ehh.. anyone here interest you? would likely drop trevor booker for: kanter, tucker, h thompson, roberson, napier…

      14Man h2h 9 cat

        @hamtime: sorry, gobert too.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @hamtime: I’d probably get Tucker, nice game tonight, but all these guys will be inconsistent. I think Booker has the most upside, think he’ll start at some point

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @needtosell: I want CP3 side. Deron’s ankles are always kankles! haha

  11. Mamba says:
    (link)

    Wow, as soon as I drop kanter for being unproductive he has 2 solid games in a row. 10 team h2h points league with 10 points for double doubles. Anybody on my team that you would drop for kanter?

    Draymond, MKG, Ed Davis, Giannis

    Thanks in advance

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Mamba: Ehhhh, he wasn’t that good tonight… 18 points and nothing. Nah I’m holding all 4 of those guys. Any time!

    Does it make sense to drop George Hill for Shumpert in a 10 man league? sick of waiting and the matchup is really tight this week

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Juan: Long term I still like HIll, but yeah in a 10er def drop Hill and stream to win your week
