    Barton has to go in 10ers right? His mins are still nice tho.. I own he and Kemba, so they both massacred my FG% yesterday.

    Do you like Finney-Smith, Deng, JRich (I’m still not sold on his situation in MIA – SO MANY GUARDS and TyJo wasn’t THIS good last season), A Gordon, Smart, Roberson? Or go with safe blahness in Cody? Just looking for at least a decent short-term pickup is all. Please rank and assume that the rookie is gonna continue getting 30min in DAL.

    Please give me da Gooooose against the Suns for 30!!

      @jb gilpin: oh oh and how about Crawford? I’m in the hunt for FTM – think he’all keep this up?

        @Lasandro: Yeah probably, I don’t want much stock in ANY Nuggets. tough in a shallower league.

        Can’t rank DFS with a 30+ MPG confidence. Prob going JRich, Roberson, Gordon, Smart, Deng, DFS, all close though. Crawford, meh. He’s towards the top, but these are all in the same range. Goes game by game with these guys.

        Goose it is!

      @giantsFTW: Good call, on both counts! Haha yeah I need to be sure Slim can hear the audio, some update to Skype has it not play for him

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @giantsFTW: And another 1. He’s so good.

      • giantsFTW says:

        @Slim: Yeah he finally got me my first point 😀 He is, indeed, THE Unicorn!

          @Slim: @giantsFTW: Ugh. He is good. Mad Slim is on fire right now

    Would you do BroLo and Schroder for Millsap and D’Angelo?
    Schroder can’t keep this up right…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Marshall: Yeah I think I would take Millsap side. Feel safer with millsap > Brook and Schroder and Russell are still about the same

  6. TheMuppetManiac says:

    Paul Millsap for 30.

    I’m with you JB, Klay is going to go off tonight. give me Klay for 30!

    • JB Gilpin

      @jdubs: Hell yeah man, let’s do this Klay!

  8. Dusty says:
    (link)

    Bledsoe for 30. He’s done it in back to back games…

    Juancho, Powell or Ingram ROS?
    There needs to be some sort of ranking of Slim’s boyfriends. Is it Goose, Juancho, Gary Harris top 3? Seems to be a lot of recent flings.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dusty: Nice call!

      Hahahaha, I just had a great thought. I’ll be all three of those guys who will be bachelor a/b/c and Slim will have to figure out which of his boyfriends is who hah.

      Goose is def Slim’s #1. Always will be.

      I’d prob go Powell, Ingram, Juancho

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah definitely Goose, Gary, then a long drop off to Juancho. I really like what I see from Juancho but he’s got to be at least a year off, it isn’t impossible this is a solid year for him but next year looks like the year.

        Juancho for sure last on your list (unless they give in and start him). Powell v Ingram is interesting, Ingram has so much more upside. I think I’d rather gamble on him. The Lakers aren’t going anywhere in a hurry so I imagine they let him loose eventually.

        • Dusty says:
          (link)

          finally a second one on the board. That overtime paid off.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Slim: @Dusty: Same analysis for Ingram you could say for Powell. They might realize he’s a PF and let him go crazy in March when Dirk gets shut down for good. Nice on E Bled!

  9. FHRITP says:

    D. Wade for the 30 pt challenge

    • JB Gilpin

      @FHRITP: Nice!

    Lock me in for CJ for 30. Gonna give him a shot at redemption, he was close last time! LeBron is always tempting too, though…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @The Gintern: Yeah I was real close to taking LeBron, but it’s the Grizz. Bleh. And off a big game. Feels like he ebbs and flows

  11. Irk NO D Nowitzki says:

    Give me Melodrama for 30 tonight!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Irk NO D Nowitzki: Not quite, Melo was ice cold. I didn’t realize but he’s currently shooting a career low FG%.

  12. Connor says:

    I’ll take Love for 30! Richardson or Gary Harris ROS? They feel similar to me, not sure there’s much of a difference

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Connor: oh no. 29 for Love. Man… So the difference should be Richardson with close to a block per game and Gary with close to 1.5 steals per game, Gary should outscore him too and help in FTs, small sample size obviously but Gary was really aggressive when he got back earlier in the year, 13.8 per36 PPG last year was up to 17.1 PPG in his brief stint back. Now some people have lost their trust in Malone, I think Gary is above it but I can’t say for sure. Richardson minutes are probably more secure and he’s the back up PG (Tyler is the 2guard even when Dragic is on the bench) so I imagine a smidge better assists for Richardson. As for overall top end upside, I’ll give it to Gary, esp with how the rest of the nuggets have been playing lately. I believe he has the opportunity for massive minutes.

      • Connor says:
        (link)

        @Slim: Thanks Slim! Yeah the Love call was a bummer but oh well

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Slim: @Connor: Damnnnnnnn, yeah the 29s are rough, happened to LaVine for a few picks last year.

          I dunno Jrich showed some scoring prowess at times… I’ll lean JRich.

    Only way to catch up..go bold..Dennis Schroeder

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @JG: A solid game, just didn’t get enough shots up.

      • JB Gilpin

        @JG: @Slim: Mannnn, looked good tho! 13 dimes. Posterized Ibaka. Getting the steals up. Glad I was patient where I have him
