      @TheMuppetManiac: Hah yeah, the challenge can feel like an epic jynx sometimes!

        @JB Gilpin:

        Since I jinxed him and he’s not playing now, I’ll pick cj mccollum to the disappointment of others.

    Hey JB, hope this gets to you in time. Offer earlier was revised. I can choose between wall+wesmat or wall+bazemore for my mccollum+jokic.

    Who between baze vs wesmat do you see having consistent and reliable value ROS? Thanks!

      @hamtime: Gimme Wall Bazemore and do it!

      • Hamtime says:

        @JB Gilpin: done! Interested to see how the Wall AD combo plays out. Thanks!

    Hey JB and Slim,

    Good stuff as usual. Reached on the ol’ geese in one league but I’m happy so far with how its working out. Who do you think I should drop in my 10 man h2h league with jrue coming back tomorrow?

    Rubio, Collison, Payton
    Harden, Beal, KCP
    Gallinari, Parsons
    Green, Dieng
    Ibaka, R. Lopez

    Don’t wanna lose payton or KCP but I do need the blocks from lopez.

    Thanks in advance!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jonny: Yeah getting one more PG in there will help. You have pretty good 3s, I think it’s sadly KCP. Tough choices in 10ers

  4. Niko-Cola Kevin says:

    Kemba for 30!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Niko-Cola Kevin: Nice! Yeah he was mine too, kinda unfair he’s an option haha

        @JB Gilpin:
        Rule change for next year…Have a degree of difficultly factor based the player’s position going into the night on the scoring charts. Could be a nice ripple to add

        • Dusty says:
          (link)

          @David M: or you can pick anyone and for a correct pick you get 30 minus the players’ season average in points.
          (so if you pick a player averaging 24 and the get 30+, you get 6 points, but if you get 30 from a player averaging 10 you get 20 points)

            (link)

            @David M: @Dusty: While I certainly appreciate having more nuances to this game, this all sounds like it would be incredibly hard to track haha. I’ll talk with Slim about it next yr

  5. Dusty says:
    (link)

    I’ll take Devin Booker for 30.

    Are you thinking Kristaps only behind Durant, Davis and Towns for bigs next year? Ahead of the PG, LeBron, Cousins, Millsap, Whiteside, Lillard group in the draft?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dusty: Oh bold, I like it! And yeah, I mean still a long time before I definitively have to answer that πŸ™‚ Maybe Whiteside still over him, but close

    • Jensen says:
      (link)

      @Dusty: KP at the turn in a 12’er at best. I don’t see it any earlier. I still want Curry, Harden, Rus, Durant, CP3, PG13, Davis, Kawhi, Butler, Boogie, Draymond ahead of him. Kemba, Dame, and KAT are close.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dusty: @Jensen: Gotta love Razzball, already hotly debating 17-18 ranks haha. In 9 cat, I still bet Boogie is after. KAT I would take before. Vs. Dray might end up being close. I’ll prob take him over Butler due to injury concerns, but obviously we’ll see if we’ll feel better on Butler if he gets through this season

  6. Joe says:

    Guess who’s back? Back again. Joe is back. Tell a friend.

    Assuming Marcus Morris does not go back to his early season ways, would it make sense to swap him for any of the following: Rondo, Sweet Lou, E.Gordon, T.Jones (sigh), Richardson, Iggy, MKG, Harkless

    If I thought T.Jones was going to consistently start, I’d go with him for sure. But without that knowledge, and with Beal and Parsons being spotty, an SG/SF like Richardson or Iggy look attractive, but my weakest cats (though it’s still early) have been FG and, Boards….sigh. See my problem? I don’t have to put in a waiver FAAB until Sunday night, but which would would you be leaning?

    Team: Lowry, Conley, Collison, Beal, Batum, Morris, Parsons, Zingis, Millsap, Gibson, Gobert

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Joe: Hah welcome back man! Yeah i kinda like Josh Richardson for ya. No D stats last night, but a lot of shots and important to both sides of the ball. No huge needs, so I might go low on FAAB on both Richardson, then backup bid Tjones

  7. David M says:
    (link)

    KLOE!!!

    Mark me down for some Lowry time for 30+

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @David M: I like it, nice!

  8. giantsFTW says:
    (link)

    PG13 for the 30 point challenge.

    My T. Johnson fΓΌr Danny Green? I like the upside in the defensive stats.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @giantsFTW: Always a safe bet! And ummmm… Meh I kinda like TyJo! They’re both really close. I’m fine with the swap, it’s dead even

    I know that rubbing chopsticks together is supposed to be rude because it’s a sign to the restaurant that you think their chopsticks are low quality, but if they are low quality, what do they expect you to do?!

    LeBron is tempting off that rest game, but gimme Harrison Barnes for 30 tonight. Bummed that my C’s are so banged up for this year’s home game against the dubs, last year’s battle was such a treat

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Gintern: I know right?! I did a little bit, but maybe didn’t rub them vigorously enough (that’s what she said!)

      OH yeah that Warriors game was epic! Like the Barnes pick, they have no one right now

      • miles proudfoot says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I’ve always rubbed those chopsticks based upon what I saw friends do. May have to stop that. Man Razzball, thanks for looking out in all ways!

          @miles proudfoot: Yeah my wife learned to do that, but maybe i made it worse i dunno haha. Life advice all around here at razzball hoops!

    kemba for 30 before it’s too late then!

  11. Threekola says:

    Where’s the brolo love guys? He’s on a crazy blocks streak and is scoring at a very high rate per minute. Once his rebounds per minute normalize to career average and the minutes get anywhere close to last year like Asshat promised, he’s gonna be a MONSTER. 2.2 threes and 2.8 blocks last 2 weeks on 48% and 82%.

    No mention on podcast :'(

    Ima make you guys pay for this, Brolo for 30 baby! Chalk me in coach!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Threekola: Brolo love absent?! He got me 30, I clapped for him! He was totally mentioned!

      • Threekola says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Really? I didn’t hear it. Maybe cause I was half asleep while listening. My b.

        GIMME BROLO ANYWAYS! πŸ™‚

          @Threekola: Hmmmm, well I meant to if I didn’t! Can’t mention everyone on the Pod, we have important topics like chopsticks to discuss!

  12. jdubs says:

    Gotta follow Slim here and go Kawhi for 30! He should feast on the Lakers

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @jdubs: Ugh as Kawhi owner in REL, I hope we get a nice 29/10/4/4/1 kinda line πŸ™‚

      @Jeremy: Nice, let’s do dis, Kemba!

    Was going to go with PG vs PHO but with the inj, let’s go the other way and go for Booker.

  15. Peaniece says:

    Im the biggest kyrie fangay you’d ever see so theres no way I give up on him even if he wasnt quite there last time. Kyrie for 30!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Peaniece: Damn, a great game, but just short!

  16. Zinger says:

    Kemba 30!
    Still got 20 mins before 1st game starts haha

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Zinger: Just in time! Sad he let us down…

  17. Lasandro says:

    Teague for 30

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @jb gilpin: and Miles just went down. Cmon Jeff!!!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Couldn’t quite get there… And yeah the CJ injury looked bad, but maybe just a hyperextention…

  18. Connor says:
    (link)

    Damn I’m late let me get Gallo for 30

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Had a typical Gallo game, pretty close tho! I don’t think anyone got a point, looks like we’re still the top!

  19. Doctor G says:
    (link)

    JB!! Dammit, missed out on the 30 point challenge again. Will try and catch you guys next time!
    Noel was just dropped in my league, I’m assuming hes worth a stash?? I’ll have an open IL spot once Lin comes back. Also, would you recommend any of the following currently on my wire over J-Rich or Marcus Morris?? Sergio, RHJ, Nurk, Danny Green. My squad currently looks like this:
    PG: Conley, Oladipo, Payton, SETH Curry (streamer)- recently dropped for Nurk, JB approved!
    SG: J-Rich
    SF/PF: KD, Gallo, TJ, Parsons, Marcus Morris
    PF/C: Millsap, Horford, DJ
    IL: Lin, Reke
    Marcus has been scuffling lately, and his ceiling is pretty low to begin with. Also concerned that Leuer has started to eat into his usg a bit, and Reggie has still yet to come back. Is it crazy that I’m slightly intrigued by the ultimate upside of RHJ/Danny Green over Marcus?? Does it even make sense given my team build? I would also love to get Nurk back assuming he clears waivers, but is that something that I should even be considering? Thanks for your help as always bud!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Doctor G: No worries, only one next week on Tuesday, so got some time to think about it! Sure, with Lin close, I like nabbing Noel to use that opening IL spot. Ugh I still can’t believe I recommended that move, but I think it’ll work out, Mavs looked atrocious last night. Nah Marcus is really fading. I’m good streaming with what you need for this matchup (assuming youre h2h right?) Get more dimes from Sergio, D stats/reb from RHJ, or if your matchup looks more or less set, I think I might nab Nurk again for him and hope it turns around sooner than later

      • Doctor G says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: alright thanks man!! Yeah, its a H2H league. I dropped Seth today because I need a 3 point boost on Sunday, and I’m planning on picking up Noel to stash and the Bosnian Beast for Marcus, although just when I was completely ready to jump ship from Marcus he goes off for 24 points with 4 threes lol. Ah well. Thanks for the input my man!!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Doctor G: Hah yeah Marcus is def really streaky, was that way last year….
