I’m sure there have been many nights when New Yorkers had their knives in hand ready to shank Julius Randle in the back. Spin move this, mother [email protected]#er! Good thing he doesn’t ride the A C E 1 2 3 B D F M N Q R 4 5 or 6 trains. Whew. After last night’s game though…..

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

….NYC would’ve formed a mosh pit and crowd-surfed Randle to wherever he wanted to go, as he led the Knicks to a 130-110 drubbing of the Bucks. We know Randle can score and grab boards, and he’s developed his three-point over the years. The increase in dimes, though, has been eye-opening. He’s often at the top of the key and has shooters running to him for dribble handoffs, like how Bam Adebayo does for Duncan Robinson in Miami. If he fakes the handoff, the man in the corner cuts baseline and Randle finds him. That is just one action I’ve seen. Is Thibs unlocking Randle? It’s possible. Now, you won’t get much in the way of defensive stats and the percentages are dreamy right now, so a reality check in those departments is in store. With that said, if the dimes are real, then he could crack the top 75 for the first time in his career.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

No Big O from Kelly. All the ladies in the house are nodding their heads up and down. Don’t trip, though. Through three games, ubre is shooting 17.5% from the field. He’s shot over 44% from the field in each of the last three seasons. Woo sah. Woo sah. At least he’s getting his 211 on.

Lauri has been on the Markkanen, as he’s shooting 52% from the field through three games. He’s a 43% shooter so expect some massive regression. Something to monitor is that he tweaked his ankle late in the game and has been listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Wizards.

This Carter Administration has so much potential but it’s been hindered by one thing after another. A budgetary increase for the Department of Health and Human Services needs to be priority number one, as his health is the only thing keeping him from good times.

Has a usage rate of 34 in three games this season! He is the alpha and omega of this Bulls squad, for better or for worse. The elevated turnovers are an issue and so are the low dime numbers. I’d expect both to move in the opposite direction sooner than later. As for the defensive stats, the steals are legit but the blocks are a mirage.

What’s crazy is the symmetry in his stat line. 3, 6, and 12 are all divisible by 3. There are three 3/4, which are three parts of a whole. His name has three parts. He was good three years ago.

Played a team-high 36 minutes. I didn’t draft Mikal anywhere because someone kept telling me that it was a Bridges to nowhere. I’m a stupid, stupid man. The efficiency has been amazing, the turnovers have been low, and he’s providing points, tres, boards, and blocks. He’s averaging 11.3 shots per game! Currently, he’s a top 25 player and could crack the top 50, which would fit his career arc. He was a top 100 player his rookie year then improved to a top 75 player. My SAT prepping tells me that the top 50 is the answer.

Now, Johnson is playing at an elevated level, shooting 53% from the field, which isn’t sustainable, but it’s not like he’s going to go limp. It is better than the house of bricks that Crowder provides. If you need some points, tres, and steals, then Johnson can help you. The minutes won’t be voluminous though.

Points and tres are his thing for fantasy, but he ain’t shooting 55% from the field all season.

Tatum is a 1/1/1 player who scores a ton, grab boards, and dishes out dimes. Sorry, I could’ve been more efficient. He does it all. Speaking of efficiency, Tatum is shooting 42% from the field.

    Let’s do a former lakers recap

    Don Julio, always loved this guy and was the heart for the lakers when they needed it. He always plays hard and has vision, just needs to run the offense. I’d like to see him traded to a playoff team and have him dominate the ball off the bench.

    Lonzo defensive IQ and speed with the ball impressed me. I still believe in him but needs to stay healthy.

    Josh Hart aka the incredible hulk, so strong and poised. Great role player – you need guys like this to win.

    Ingram always looked a little slow as a Laker but not with NO. He’s so smooth and tough. Couldn’t shoot 3s with the lakers but it seemed inevitable. beast.

    Nance cant stay healthy either but talk about bounce! Always gets it done when he plays.

    You see the Kuzma-Tatum battle in summer league in their rookie season? Kuzma defense was always there. I’m a big fan and I’m glad he’s healthy and focused.

    This post got long real quick but that lakers scouting department is unreal. In last 5 years – THT, Kuz, Hart, TBryant, Zubacs, Nance, Bonga, Svi …

      Ha! I’ll look for the perfect GIF and will do as you request

      Agreed. Scouting department has been phenomenal

    14 team, 9 cat H2H

    I’ve currently got Shake Milton as my backup PG. Do you prefer any of the guards listed below? I’m just looking for best overall player.

    – Killian Hayes, Sato, Payne, Neto, Quickley, Mills, Matt Thomas

    Would you swap Noel with Robert Williams, Gasol, McGee? Or hold on and see how minutes shake out with Noel and Time Lord? Again looking for best overall player.

      I think Quickley has good upside, but there’s risk. It’s between him and Hayes.

      I’d swap Noel for Time Lord.

    Was offered Whiteside for my Porzingis. Thinking of passing, Hassan hasn’t shown much so far. What do you think?

      Are you really serious considering this deal? lol

    Thanks Son, welcome back and belated Merry Christmas!

    I have LMA in both my 12 team H2H 9 cat leagues – would you hold, drop or try to trade him?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      You too!

      Don’t drop. You can try to trade but this is probably not the right time to be doing that

      • Take Flight says:

        Thanks! One more q for you today, who would you drop for a streamer:

        Nance, Warren, Plumlee, RoCo, Haliburton

        • Son

          Son says:

          I like them all

    Hey Son, Hope you are well!

    Someone dropped Brandon Clarke, should I use my first waiver to bid for him?

    • Son

      Son says:

      What’s the context?

      • Henry says:
        (link)

        12 man 9 cat league, easier question is do you think Brandon Clarke can return the value at least like last year?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          He can. Will he? No idea

  8. JC says:

    Please weigh in on which side you would prefer for general value:

    A. My Rooster and Walker JR for his Bazley and Aunoby.
    B. Same duo for his Whiteside and Garland
    C. Best on the wire: Elfrid, Naz, Batum, Josh Jax, Hardaway.
    Best chance to stay on a 12 teamer’s roster or are they all streamers

    Side note/brag: brought home “the chip” in football thanks to Monty and JT. Who would have thought that this duo would be the difference makers given their struggles at times this year?? Appreciate your input during the season.

    • Son

      Son says:

      A. Bazley and OG
      B. flip a coin
      C. I guess Elf but there’s a chance Quickley takes his job

      Nice! Congrats my man! Anytime

      • JC says:

        The counter:
        My Bog Bog, Rooster and Walker IV for his Bazley, Oubre and OG.
        I think this is even better for me??!!

      Sup, hamtime!

    SIR SON! Just pulled my first biggie of the year:

    12 teams, 11 cats – st9 plus off reb & def reb, keeper

    Is it time to drop Blake griffin and Kevin love? I have a feeling they will be a headache to own. I got Blake at 9th round and love at 7the round.

      Son says:

      Depends who you’re dropping them for. I’d look at the trade market first

      • Leo says:
        (link)

        I tried shopping them but no one will bite. I asked for coby white.

        I can pick up mason plumlee and Dort.

        Or hold?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          hold
