    Great job, JB. Enjoyed it.

    Also, yes…sure, it may be the case that Ibaka’s blocks in the last 10 were sporadic.

    But in the 10 games before that, he only had 3 games that were sub-THREE blocks. 3+ in 7 of 10.

    I’m just hoping he gets his season average to 2.0+ so it looks sexier. I also think the 3p% might drop a little, but I think he still shoots a career high this year.

    Thanks for the pod bro

    Merry Xmas brother! And to my fellow didgeridoo player @Slim! It’s Xmas here in Bangkok so I’m sending y’all love from the future.. perhaps the narrative to next season’s Westworld??

    Well done on the pod @jb gilpin – much better than your last solo outing, which I also enjoyed. There’s never a lack of phalic references πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been steaming through the Xmas flicks this week. Left my fav two for the big day today – Christmas vacation and A Very Murray Christmas. Die hard will prob make an appearance too!

    Some fantasy big men talk: you like Harrell over Cody for the next few weeks? If he’s gonna continue outscoring him while pulling down Obrds, Montrezl (autocorrect says “Montreal” haha) looks to be a nice pickup. James Johnson is lookin sooo sweet too. I’ll pose my last questions again: Cody, Montreal, JJ, or Deng? Good %s scoring with brds and any residual D.

        @Lasandro: Merry Christmas my man! Whoa youre blowing my mind with all this narrative talk! Maybe Slin and I are actually androids and this us YOUR narrative! Appreciate ya listening as always! Christmas vacation is always a winner…

        Love the KAT call! Hah.

        To the tough part… glad you held onto warren. Parsons i would still hold. I think yeah youre still riding COdy. Still tough to lose him for Harrell

    Hey JB/Slim! Hood was dropped, do you guys like him over Harris? Or should I just hold Harris?

    Thanks!

    • NameNotFound says:

      @NameNotFound: Also, Deng/Tucker/Thabo/Miles/Marvin over Harkless?

      • NameNotFound says:

        @NameNotFound: Add JRich

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @NameNotFound: I’d hold Harris over Hood. Mannnn all those guys seem to be same range… is it a league where you can stream? My answer would be the cop out if whoever has te best next few matchups haha

    Merry Christmas JB and Razzball nation!! Thanks for the early Christmas gift JB, haven’t listened to the pod yet, but I can’t wait to curl up next to the fire, slip my headphones on, get all cozy, and listen to the best damn pod on the planet!! As a side note, I feel Slim’s frustration for J-Rich’s lack of PG eligibility. Montrezz has started at C for the last 2 games and is clearly replacing Clint at C moving foward, yet hes only listed as a PF. Normally not a huge deal, but since I only have 1 centre on my roster, I really wanted to snag Montrezl for his Monday/Tuesday back to back. Unfortunately, because hes not a C, I can’t fit him into my lineup on Monday. Ugh.

    Anyways, a dynamite slate of games for today courtesy of commish Silver and the schedule makers. I think I’ll go with my fellow crazy Canuck Andrew Wiggins to get Wiggy with it against the Oklahoma City Westbrooks and go off for 30. Don’t let me down hombre, I need to get on the board! Happy holidays JB and Slim πŸ™‚

      @Doctor G: Merry Christmas man! Enjoy the pod you might get a shout on this one! Damn yeah that’s odd for Montrezl that should be fixed soon… interesting, might indeed get wiggy with it! Great high-flying matchup that game

    Merry Christmas JB and Slim! You guys are the best out there for content and entertainment. I’ll take Melo for 30!

      @Connor: Merry Christmas man! We really appreciate it! Although I don’t appreciate you’re beating me on the board now, so boooooo Melo! Haha

    Merry christmas and happy holidays Slim & JB. Your doing some awesome work over the year, appreciate it alot! As a Knicksfan I’m always tempted to pick the Gooooose for 30p but I kinda fear he plays with a itchy knee today so I gonna go with La’Vine this time.

    Kieff or Harkless? Also kind of happy I stickes with Elfired and didnt put him on the shelfried. He kind of blows in his last 10. And man, I still dont kniw what to do with Noel, wh the heck is he not getting traded… πŸ™

      @giantsFTW: Merry Christmas man really appreciate that! We try! Nice call on lavine, def think one of the big 3 wolves scoring guys will do it. I’ll take Kieff there. And yeah I’m glad Elfrid is making my high rank look ok! I didn’t stash or own Noel anywhere he’s prob a cut for me in 10/12ers while in this mess of a shituation in PHI

    It’s going to be a competitive 2nd half in the REL for the top 6-8 teams. Good Luck and Happy New Year to all.

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah you’ve been on fire that’s pretty much why I sold the farm. I hate doing it but realized if I didn’t make a lateral move i wasn’t going to be competing much longer.
