    Ugh, struggle town with downloading the podcast while in Sri Lanka.. Anyway, JUST. Read that big al is out for 4 weeks. Hilarious but since I flipped kemba for Drummond a couple of weeks back, he’s been one of the hottest players in the L and he may go nuts now. Ah well, Drummond ain’t bad 😉 But someone dropped Lance a while back and if he does come back from his injury is he worth an add? Who else is worth picking up, if at all, in Charlottesville?

      Also, I can’t get any value for MCW.no tea gues, no knights. Do I try for a jack,even? He’s just unownable right now

      • Lasandro says:

        Or I could pick up either wiggins, Burke, etc.. I just don’t think cw can turn it around. Hell, I may keep my waiver pickup of Covington over him if I can’t trade the dude..

          @Lasandro: That sucks you can’t get the Pod! Not working through the site player for ya either?

          Still loving the Drummo get! Walker just will take more shots and have a worse FG% and bad TO haha.

          Marvin Williams I think gets more shots/run with Zeller getting some C minutes. Not a must-add at all, but for your consideration. Biyombo I think is a 25 mpg guy with Al out, with horrifc FT% numbers.

          Ask, yeah MCW is falling apart. Quickly going on my never-again list. I think I’d wait him out over trading for Jack though. Wiggins… Close! I might do that actually, he’s picking it up and filtering in some steals and blocks.

          @jb Gilpin: wow really?? I guess being a super shallow league, dropping him ain’t too bad. Think wiggins will keep things up with Rubio out. What’s his estimated ROS stat line in your opinion? This’d be a HUGE drop, simply based on the fact that he was the bloody ROY… You don’t like trey Burke? Giannis is there too

            @Lasandro: I like Wiggins upside over those guys. Don’t trust Burke. I like Giannis a lot. It’s so hard to pick, I mean those are all must-own guys in most leagues. Wiggins I think has the most potential though, so I’m rolling with him.

          • Lasandro says:

            @jb Gilpin: thanks mate and happy new year from Sri Lanka to you and @slim!

            Ok, I’ve literally sent out 6 trades in ilvung MCW and will give it a day to see if anyone bites. A week ago someone offered me Noah for him and I wonder if he’d still be keen on the deal.. Need to try for a trade before I drop him.

            Ok, wiggins seems to be the guy (although I stil need convincing haha – he’s so raw!). It giannis even hit half a three a game, I’d prob lean him. And how about Meeks? Possibly the best pickup? He was masterful late last season and his ftm would be a great addition IF he hits similar numbers to last year

            • JB Gilpin

              (link)

              @Lasandro: Oh I’d def take Noah at this point! Good buy low. Wayyyyy like Wiggins over Meeks. Better role, more boards, chips in blocks. Don’t think Meeks has the role he had last year on DET. Happy new year man!

              @jb Gilpin: something hilarious just happened! Before I hit te hay, I put out an MCW for kawhi trade and just as I woke up and read that kawhi is going to come back “later than sooner”, the dude accepted haha! Good news is that MCW is now gone. Bad news is when the hell is kawhi returning?? I feel like Pop tends to be negative when discussing such things with the media and if he returns a week or more before the end of the month, I’m happy. Dang it.

              @jb Gilpin: that leaves my streamer spot of Covington. I basically was after some Wilson Chandler type stats – 3s, brds, multi cat upside, with dub digit scoring efficiently. Outside of 3s, would you still rate wiggins or giannis the better pickup for at least the next month or so. Covingtons last few have been decent and he looks good out there. Tough dude and I think coach brown likes him out there

                @Lasandro: Nice, AWESOME trade! I feel like one day he’s almost back, the next Pop says no timetable. I think it’s kinda soon Kawhi is back.

                Still Wiggins, but Giannis is mad close. Depends on needs, but 3s/boards/multi-cat – I’ll lean Wiggins for the more 3s.

              • Lasandro says:
                (link)

                @jb Gilpin: haha that makes me feel better bro, good to hear you liked the trade. If he’s back in two weeks, I’ll be bloody happy. Oh AND KD returned for me yesterday, so that was kinda nice ha

                Why did I know that you’d say wiggins right after I picked up giannis haha? It wa close but I feel like outside of 3s and pts, giannis may have the edge. And have you seen his lat two stat lines? PHAT. Although it’s actually hilarious seeing how hesitant he is to shoot threes now! Guys actually sag off him, can you believe that! Bet you didn’t think his 3s would be so atrocious this year. But them d stats are coming in waves and if he ups his scoring round the 14ppg mark with 6-7brds and 3asts, I’ll be happy. Kawhi-lite. Dropping Covington was sad tho.. I like him more than poo Marcin Gortat. Dude has not been performing! Thoughts on what kinda player I could flip for him? Should I try a Noah-type? What wings would be similar quality players I could prob go for?

                HNY from Sri Lanka and here’s to another great year of razzball! Still can’t listen to your pods btw.. They keep stopping and repeating around the 2-3min mark. Congrats on the engagement!

                  @Lasandro: Wiggins vs. Giannis – they’re both so good and are must-owns, it’s tough to have to pick. Can’t fault Giannis at all.

                  Gortat forrrr, Wesley Matthews? Eh, he’s been kinda hot lately… Trevor Ariza has gone mad cold, I’d think about that, maybe Parsons…?

                  Happy new year! Umm, have you downloaded the whole thing on itunes? Sounds like it’s just not getting the buffer all the way… Hopefully it’l work soon, if not when you’re home. PReciate it man!

                  @jb Gilpin: cheers man! In another post for slim I mentioned that I recently flipped Kieff for wiggins off the wire and he said I made the wrong move. Your thoughts?

                  Meanwhile, just been offered m Gasol for Drummond? Pull the trigger or hold? It’s hard when peeps like gortat and ibaka aren’t pulling enough brds these days, but if you think Gasol has a significantly better ROS I’ll do it

                  @jb Gilpin: or should I counter for LMA?

                    @Lasandro: Kieff I’d still take over Wiggins. But close. Kieff>Wiggins>Giannis for now still. I don’t think Gasol is much better, I’d hold with the light reb/blk you’re getting. Aldridge though, yup I’d do that!

                  • Lasandro says:
                    (link)

                    @jb Gilpin: thanks mate – I’ll see if he’s willing to let go I LMA.. I could certainly use the pts and efficiency as I’m lacking right now

                    Slim brought up that he sees wiggins’ value dropping once Rubio returns. Still like him over giannis, with this in mind? Giannis is bringin those blocks in waves right now! Apparently a league leading streak of 2+ blocks!

                      @Lasandro: Hmmmm, I think maybe a tad down for Wiggins, but Rubio should find him for some easier shots. Not like Rubio is a scorer! Giannis is indeed awesome with the swats! But no other stats are poppin off the page. I’d say it’s totally need based at this pt – Giannis for blks/reb/more mix, Wiggins for Pts/3s
