        @hamtime: 1. I’d probably take Hill, unless a need for Pts/3s. 2. Love it! Awesome move. 3. Ehhh, while KCP is indeed my bf, Meeks coming back tomo is no bueno. None of those other guys excite me at all, I’d keep rolling Speights. Any time my man!

    I’m in a 10 team, 10 cat (FTM) league

    Team:

    PG: Rubio, Calderon, Lin
    SG: Harden, Chalmers, Meeks
    SF: Leonard, Draymond
    PF: Millsap, Dirk, Frye
    C: Favors,Jordan Hill, O’Quinn

    Who do I drop for McRoberts? He’s on waivers. I need out of position assists and some boards..

    Options: Frye, O’Quinn, Meeks?

      @Scort: Yeah fits your needs well, I would lose Meeks for him. He’s not gonna get assists or boards really, even if he gets into a big role – which I doubt happens for a while.

        @JB Gilpin:

        not Frye? Im hoping Meeks can give me some scoring and 3’s that’s all

          @Scort: Maybe my KCP addiction is skewing me, but I’m not seeing all the hype for Meeks that a lot of people are, plsu he’s coming off a major back injury.

    Hey JB,

    Please tell me I did something good for not wasting my Waiver Number 1 Move 1 for this WAIVER PICK.

    Please, let there be light as to Kawhi’s injured again!

    20-team-league (current team no re-draft)
    Collison
    Stuckey
    Kawhi
    Dray Green
    Millsap
    Brandan Wright
    Mason Plumlee
    MCW (effin’ 9 TOs cmon MCW play well! LOL!)
    Gortat
    Payton
    Giannis
    and the ultimate clincher Otto Porter dropped for an injured Terrence Jones!

    I just had to for some reason. I don’t know but I think I can have him stashed even if it takes next year for him to play. What do you think? Sources are telling his got some work already with the team. I hope that’s a positive sign! (Who would DROP T. Jones!) :))

    Thanks, RAZZBALL!

      @Kris: Haha, well there is light! Kawhi I have a feeling plays tonight. Whoa, yeah 20 team league you can’t be dropping TJones! Def an awesome move losing Porter – who barely does anything anyway – to stash him. Nice work, any time man!

        @JB Gilpin:

        I’m getting more and more aggressive with trades. Trying to get players that have minutes even it means trading two players but their output is substituted by one player. Hope something will materialize over the weekend. I’ll let you know. We need to win this 20-team-league. Currently sitting at number 5 with 33-25-2 record.

          @Kris: Those 20 leaguers can be tough! Having trouble getting my Razzball Elite League team over the edge, only year 2 of dynasty though.

    Moetiunas solid but sounds like Dwights coming back soon. McBob with the injury scare got dropped. Should i scoop Jesus up for Donatas?

      @Michael: Hah, well Dwight wouldn’t push DMo too hard for minutes, it’s Tjones whenever he gets back that will. I think I’d lean towards McRoberts still though

    JB,
    My man. Love the podcast, but why the hate on the Raptor mascot? You’re line of questioning is very flawed. Why are you concerned about his handle, a logical question, to be fair, but never question why the mascots are dressed, or why a Hornet is the size of a Raptor? Or even, why is one of the most efficient land dwelling killing machines of all time stopping for a game of hoops? Just sayin, the logic is selectively applied. I think you’re just peeved that the Hornets are awful, and the Raps are number 1 in the east at the 1st q post.
    The Raptor is a national treasure up here, fella, careful there. You might get a slap shot to the groin if you keep it up…

        @Dan A.: Hahahaha, I think my line of questining did have some shred of truth to it as I seem to have hit a nerve. The Hornets are indeed awful, but at least their logo makes some sense! It’s holding a very small basketball! Your Raps looking good man, Lowry can sure carry a team
