Brandon Jennings is terrible.

I pretty much wanted to kill the open right there, but “journalistic integrity” or whatever…  In a horrific shooting display, BJ flat out sucked for 5-18 shooting and it was equally as painful to watch as Josh Smith at shootaround.  A few fadeaway treys, bricked layups… You name it.  I honestly think a big part of the Pistons game plan right now is have BJ shoot like a hot dog, and rely on the O-boards from Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe.  Drummo’s OREB gave me an O-face last night, that’s for sure!  Racked up 7 OREB and Monroe had 5, and I’m guessing almost all of those came on BJ’s bricks.  If terrible shots leading to OREB and putbacks counted as assists, Jennings would be John Stockton.  Of course, sometimes there’s some Flubber on the ball and it goes in, but this is an immense sell-high window.  Probably a Sportscenter Top-10 layup, and has been playing fairly well lately.  Even D.J. Augustin at 8-18 FG 19/0/5 couldn’t get Stan Van to flip-flop PG down the stretch.  We’re used to seeing flip-flops!  Stan Van coaching like Laguna Beach.  Jennings is a big name on the trading block as well, and the Pistons aren’t hesitant to give players away, as in cutting J Smoove.  One rumor I read was Houston…  They would be the worst shooting team in NBA history!  Success for Houston would obviously be bringing in two guys from a former 5-23 team… Then again, the Pistons just won on the road in San Antonio for their 6th straight, and they are – you won’t believe this – now 3.5 games out of a playoff spot in the East.  Hah!  Trade or no trade, labradoodle-city Jennings could probably fetch an interesting ransom in the fantasy market as this current run is unsustainable.  Here’s what else went down in last night’s two games:

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Another empty-ish statline, but ya know, I thought he looked good.  “Dammit, JB is back to his KCP-addiction talk!”  10/0/1/1/1 hitting 4-9 FG and 2-2 FT.  Didn’t have a FG in the first half, so it was good seeing him bang some big shots late.

Jodie Meeks Other than that 34-point outburst 4 games ago, has been pretty yawnistipating.  13/3/3/0/0 last night, and no steals the past two games.  Guess how many times he’s played 30+ minutes this year?  Without looking!  It’s the same number of times I complimented Brandon Jennings’ game in the open.  Given he played 29:58 last night, but still!  Guess who led the Pistons in minutes?  KCP!  Loving that Meeks is getting some run at SF – bodes well for a little improvement, even though I’m still not a huge Meeks guy.

Anthony Tolliver 22:30 for ‘Olliver last night, and after his first stint on the court he told Stan Van “please sir, I want s’more!”  By far a high since joining Detroit on Dec 30th, and was unsurprisingly very boring for 3/5/0/1/0 missing all 4 shots from deep.  The one shot he did make was an and-one though!  Blah.  Sorry deep league Kyle Singler owners!  If any are left…

Jeff Ayres – The Ayres rock!  Had a season-high in scoring in the first half, ending up with a 16/4/0/0/1 line in 17 fluke-ass minutes.  6-7 FT, and the 6 made were a game high!  Lay off the physical play, DET second unit!

Tony Parker Le poopoo!  “My hammy feels like chicken cordon bleu!”  Played only 13 minutes and looked slower than a French Fry.  Cory Joseph is my hero!  He’s the Freedom Fry!  Wait, he’s from Canada…  3-4 FG 7/4/4/0/1 in 27 minutes, with only 1 TO on a really weird/bad jumpstop-no-it-wasn’t traveling call.  Spurs got a ton of horrific calls this game, then to lose on a Jennings basket… Yikes.  I think Sean Elliott pulled an Office Space on his monitor…  Anyay, Cojo agogo had two nasty driving wrap around shoulda-been-dimes to Tiago Splitter with one a very unlucky rimjob that missed and the other a hard foul keeping Splitter from making it.  If TP retires or moves on and we hear Cojo will be the head honcho, I’d be hitting that sleeper pick harder than the Deliverance Kid hits the banjo!

Patty Mills – Boris Diaw missed a couple freebies too, but Mills missed a critical one.  2-10 FG and 1-2 FT.  He was a rusty trombone out there!  Nah, we’ll go with… a rusty didgeridoo out there!

Danny Green Had been a tad quiet – 2-18 from deep the previous 3 games – but very solid near-rainbow of 13/6/3/2/1 with 3-5 3PTM and no TO last night.  Shoulda taken more than 10 shots!  How I feel every time I go out to the club…  That might have been the least convincing sentence I’ve ever typed.

Brandon Knight Wooooo!  Big game for my boy.  26/2/4/3/1 hitting 10-20 FG (2-8 3PTM 4-4 FT).  All with only 1 TO!  Play him all 48, Kidd!

John Henson Finally getting some minutes!  It only took an Ersan Ilyasova concussion and Larry Sanders working through something that nobody knows.  I’m guessing he’s stuck on a tough Sudoku.  Mr. Muppet for 13/6/3/0/1 on 6-9 shooting in 24 minutes.  Hurray for a good stream call!  Wish there were a few more blocks, but whatev!  Still further down the emerging young-C totem pole for me, I think I would Hassan Whiteside over him, but back on the radar.

Zaza Pachulia Zaza arms with butter fingers!  Had 6 TO in the first half last night.  Zaza is used to being called a “but his arms”, but not a butter fingers!

Eric Bledsoe Not to be outdone, had 7 TO.  At least had a dimebag to go with it!  10/6/10/2/0 shooting 3-10 FG and 4-6 FT.  Kinda looks a little MCW-ish, no?  The TO had actually been going down lately, so just a little fluky.  8+ dimes in 4 straight…  Great volume on 83.8% FT shooting, blocks are back into the mix…  I’m fuming and all red because I don’t own E-Bled!

Alex Len 5 swats!  His blocks are more sporadic than Nicolas Cage’s critically acclaimed movies.  Last night was an Adaptation!  9/8/0/0/5 hitting 4-7 FG.  The last 6 games his blocks are 5, 0, 6 (a Leaving Las Vegas!), 1, 0 (The Wicker Man!), 2.  Henson or Len is a good one… I’ll lean Len since his 20ish minutes look assured, but he’s certainly no Jusuf Nurkic!

Markieff Morris No worries here!  Maybe me bringing it up on yesterday’s Pod was a motivator…  26/10/2/1/0 hitting 10-17 FG (2-4 3PTM 4-5 FT).

Isaiah Thomas The little one is hot!  Kinda like when there’s a women’s basketball team at the club… The only reason I’d go for the center is if I wanted some NBA babies!  19/4/1/0/0 hitting 5-8 FG (2-2 3PTM 7-8 FT).  After a long while where only 2 of the 3 Suns PG would play well, it’s looking like a world of solid co-existing!

Patrick Christopher – Slim and I have talked about how Memphis were douches in making Nick Calathes stay by picking up his contract and not letting him make 500% more overseas (and play without a bogus suspension!).  But this is the ultimate dick move in the NBA this year.  Days after dislocating his kneecap (uuuuuggghhhh), the Jazz waived him.  As in “adios, Mr. Limpy!”  Yikes.

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

Quincy Acy – Somebody has to do soemthing for the Knicks, right?  RIGHT?!  Carmelo Anthony is still in “almost-shutdown” mode, so Acy should see some decent minutes yet again after going 19/14 with two treys last time out.  Plus he should get to the FT line about a bajillion times after getting suspended a game for throwing a half-punch at John Wall last time The Poppycockers played the Wiz.  Hard foul after hard foul!

Zaza Pachulia Going back to Mr. butterfingers!  Picking guys against the Sixers is always a good place to start for streamers, and I think he bounces back from last night’s poor showing.  Had back-to-back dubdubs with 14 boards in each before yesterday and should nab a ton of Tony Wroten bricks.

 

I hope everyone is having a good “return to real life” week back from the Holidays, and we’ll see ya tomorrow!

    Is mcdaniels must own in 12ers for ros? I have tucker atm and he has been solid esp in %s, should i drop him and pick mcdaniels up?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Hype: It’s tough to call him a ‘must own’ considering his inconsistency but the only place I have him is in a 12er and I am not dropping him. I would take him over Tucker in a heartbeat.

      @Hype: Maybe two heartbeats for me, I think they’re kinda close just give very different things, I want KJ too over Tucker but not a must own ion all leagues

    Happy new year from Spain!!!
    Roto, 12 team, 9-cat. Dinasty.
    I´m in the battle for the second place.
    My team:
    Westbrook, Teague, Collison, Louis, KJMcDaniels
    P. George 🙁 Gay, Covington, Draymon
    Sullinger, Ibaka, Pau, Horford, Olynyk.

    1st Q.- Collison x DeRozan?
    2nd Q.- I´´ve got only 2pts in %3. What would you pay for Korver? And for Beal?
    3rd Q.- My worst statts are %3, FG%, 3.s and R.off. Any recommendation?

    Congrats for your work and thank you very much!!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Vidalchow:
      1. For your needs I’m going Collison. Significantly better FG%, 3pt%, and 3s made. 3/4 of your worst stats.
      2. That’s a tough call. I wouldn’t give Gay, Covington, or Draymond. He wouldn’t take Sweet Lou, KJ, Sully, or Olynyk. I’m not really seeing it.
      3. Nothing jumps out at me. I think your 3s are fine but improving the percents can prove difficult since you need high volume to really make a dent. Covington looks like a heck of a pickup for you considering your weaknesses.

      • Vidalchow says:

    • JB Gilpin

      @Vidalchow: Happy new year! Agree with everything Slim said. I might try a package to help the 3s. Gay + like Sully for Korver+another guy that hits 3s on that team?

      • Toni Vidal Ribes says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Gay + Sully
        x
        Korver + Ryan
        Make sense?

        And Horford x Al Jefferson?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Toni Vidal Ribes: Love it! Fits your needs perfect. I’d rather have HOrford since he’s healthy

  3. Thunder from down under says:
    (link)

    Trying to trade dipo for someone who assists ( been very disappointed with his dime output), I think now is a time to sell while his steals are high, who would you suggest is a good trade target? I also have players such as Markieff, MCW and Horford all players that i would love to get rid of ( dont mind kieff but his board numbers are very poor, excluding last night) so maybe I could package one of them? Thanks JB appreciate it

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Thunder from down under: Yeah me too, Payton as the pure PG is killing him. Totally agree it’s a sell high window. Oladipo+Horford for Ibaka+someone who dimes? Good buy low target for Ibaka.

  4. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    Damn i missed out on Nurkic! Somebody else got him! Anyways I have a guard dominated team: curry, bledsoe, colly, mcw, jennings! I understand your take on jennings and I’m beginning to think the same way about him lols. I remember asking u bout letting go of my mcw, but i can’t do it if you’re telling us(BJ owners) to sell BJ high! I just need to get rid of one so who would it be? MCW or BJ?:)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Much rather own MCW. He’s easier to trade though since he has more upside, but can’t drop either 🙂

  5. Black & White says:

    Just got offered Rose for my Greek Freak in an 8 cat league where I’m dead last in assists. Thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Black & White: Yikes. It sorta fits a need, but is so risky… And the dimes aren’t “that” great. Anyone you could counter for on his team?

      • Black & White says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Not really at guard. My team is pretty guard-lite as it is. Man I’m struggling in a lot of categories now that I look at stats. My team:

        G
        Westbrook
        Mo Williams
        Antetokounmpo
        Dragic
        Caldwell-Pope
        Wroten

        F/C
        T. Gibson
        C. Parsons
        T. Zeller
        P. Millsap
        E. Davis
        R. Covington
        J. Nurkic
        N. Noel
        L. Deng

        Hell if it weren’t for a few pickups and moves off your advice I’d be in dead last.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Black & White: Yikes, well at least Dragic has gotten a tad better. Nurkic is gonna kill for ya!

    H2H 14-team league… Are any of these good stash candidates? Just looking at overall value ROS

    Al Jeff
    Sanders
    Calderon
    Robin Lopez

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Blue: Whoa, definitely Jefferson! Shocked if he’s on the wire. I’m all out on Calderon,, but maybe a little upside is there with all the trades/Melo out. Rolo is probably worth owning too in 14ers. Sanders is dead last and out

  7. Clos says:
    (link)

    Hey jb got a lot of guys playing tonight.. Who would you keep on the bench? Right now my starting lineup looks like this:
    PG Paul
    SG Knight
    G Colly
    SF Markeiff
    PF draymond green
    F Taj
    C Favors
    C DMC
    util Marc gasol
    Util covington

    I’ve got jack, Aldridge and Pbev on the bench.. Aldridge isn’t playing.. Jack and Pbev are.. The only reason why I’m questioning the starting lineup is because jack plays Boston.. He should get some nice numbers but so might dwill and colly is playing okc so that’s going to be a tough game.. What do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clos: Yup, big slate out there! Well Deron is actually doubtful, so a big boost for Jack. It would depend on how you’re doing in 3s, I know it’s early, but if you’re up in 3s I’d play Jack over Covington.

  8. Batavia Busters says:
    (link)

    Sit or Start – Zaza or Favors. My only worry is that Favors is playing against the Bulls, seemingly a great defensive team – maybe limiting his output? ZaZa I see is your streamer for today, your thoughts on between these or am I crazy even thinking about zaza over favors?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Batavia Busters: Not that crazy, maybe a little bold thinking of Zaza 🙂 I’d still go Favors

  9. Dommattingly says:

    T Zeller or Len ROS
    Smart or Chalmers?
    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Dommattingly: Depends on needs, probably Len since blocks are harder to get in a vacuum. Chalmers. ANy time!

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @your mom: Eeesh, I dunno about Brolo or Sully. MIght consider Brolo and cross my fingers he stays mostly healthy, but probably not. I would probably take Anderson though if you were low or middle of the pack in 3s.

    Hey JB / Slim,

    How’s it going? I got only 2 slots for the following 4 on my team today. 9-cat H2H. Which two should I start? Thanks in advance.

    G. Henderson (vs NO)
    Speights (vs IND)
    Pachulia (@ PHI)
    Brooks (vs UTA)

    • eric says:
      (link)

      @Clay: Always a good idea to start players vs Phily, so Zaza it is, and Henderson who has to step up while big Al is on the shelf…

    • JB Gilpin

      @Clay: Going good man! Yup I’m with the commenter above, gimme Zaza and Hendo

    Please, rank them ROS:

    Karasev, J. Nelson, Crowder, Sefolosha, Cleanthony, Langston Gall, Aldemir(R. Evans numbers)

    What do you think?

    Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

    I’m not thrilled with Memphis’s playoff schedule but is the answer to look to deal Conley or Marc G.? And, if so, what should I seek in return for my team? Conley isn’t a keeper (he’d cost me a round 2 pick next year) but Marc G. might be (he’d cost me a round 3 pick).

    My team in h2h, 9-cat, 10-team, 3-keeper league. Possible keepers have asterisks:: Melo, Durant*, Conley, Marc. G, Matthews, Holiday, Evans, MCW, IT2, Gobert, Nurkic

    PS. (Gotta have an MCW question) – What are the chances that he gets traded to LA and that such a move helps him?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Joe: MEM actually has a decent playoff sched, only a 3-game in the championship week with 4 the two weeks before, so i don’t see it as being that bad. Conley is worth shopping though since you’re not keeping him. Hah, ummmm I kinda doubt MCW is traded this year, I’d say 2%.

  14. booya says:

    Can I give Collison for Monroe & MKG? I’m really struggling for boards and have plenty of assists.
    Collison for Monroe straight up would be too much, right?

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @booya: Yeah I would certainly want more than just Monroe. Sure, getting MKG and it fits a need, as long as you’re not dropping anyone any good, I’d be fine with!

  15. booya says:
    (link)

    I’m also looking at possibly trading Lawson, Jrue, Dragic, Collison, or MCW for either Faried or Vucevic. What would your recommend as a fair offer? Are any of them alone enough?

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @booya: Yeah any of those top 4 PG would be in consideration for Vuc I’d think. MCW for Faried is probably my favorite offer.

  16. Down Wit K.C.P says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Tobias Harris + (Dragic or Jrue) for Ibaka? I’m sitting pretty in 2nd place, but also have pretty good PG depth. Here’s my squad:

    PG- Curry
    G- Jrue
    SG- Dragic
    SF- Harris
    PF- Milsap
    F- Favors
    C- Pau Gasol
    UTIL- Brandon Knight

      @Down Wit K.C.P: Ehhhh, I’m worried about Ibaka. He fits a need though… Dragic + Harris and you get rid of that bad ORL playoff sched if it’s H2H and I like it

      • Down Wit K.C.P. says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Yeah it’s a 9cat H2H league. That was my thought process too. Hopefully he doesn’t insist on Jrue.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

    Didn’t mean to re-post, but I think people answer more questions here haha. Anyways, after seeing the buy/sell article…
    Who you would suggest getting back for Teague?

    12 team H2H 9 CAT
    Jeff Teague, James Harden, Brandon Knight, Ty Lawson
    Joe Johnson, Tobias Harris, Robert Covington, Markieff Morris
    Marcin Gortat, Chris Bosh, Mason Plumlee, Zaza Pachulia, Jusuf Nurkic

    Also, not sure what’s going on with Gortat, should I continue holding or maybe package him with Teague?

    Would you drop Mason or Zaza to pick up Cody or Acy?

    Thank you so much, and keep up the awesome work!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bearded Raptor: We try to get to everything! So you’re moving Teague I’m guessing? I would need a PG back looking at your team. I’m fine including Gortat to try and make an upgrade. Ehhh, not right now for the C drops. Zaza maybe in a couple when Sanders is back can go back out. Appreciate that man!

I think Kawhi will be fine, actually played through the hand injury when it happened for another minute or two. MAybe a team needing blocks would take Hibbert?

    For today’s matchup, one spot left. who should I play out of these three?

              @JB Gilpin: Both were close games, but then again you guys played at home, not in SEA. 12th man power =]

    Mozgov just got traded. Now the Jus is really Lus!!!

  23. Shaft says:

    JB– just saw the Mozzy news… I’ve been wanting to add Jusuf for some time now and i REALLY want to right now, but i dont think i have anyone to drop….

    Bottom two guys on my roster are Sully and W. Chandler. I’d consider dropping Chandler for him, but Knight is my only other SG eligible guy and he’s got a 1-game week next week. And I have to hold Sully, right? My league only has one C spot and one UTIL and I also already have Tyson Chandler who is only C eligible.

    Would you package the Chandler brothers for a serviceable SG like Korver, Danny Green, Kemba, or Batum? Or would these all be detrimental since im rarely going to start someone at SG over Knight?

    Or i could try and grab Curry for Lillard + Sully? Sorry for thinking out loud here… Thanks!

      Slim says:

      @Shaft: I think if you try to make a trade then add Nurk it will be too late. I think the drop is Wilson. Then figure out the 2nd SG later.

      • Shaft says:
        (link)

        @Slim: Thanks man. Im thinking youre right. im just worried about next week with Knight only having one game. But maybe i grab Nurk now. And try to make moves to free up an SG. And if no one bites swap them back sunday night…

          @Shaft: Si. This looks kind of like a ‘Mike Trout’ kind of moment. Wouldn’t want to miss it.

            @Slim: Hah I literally thought that earlier today too. Although my Ibaka offer I thought was more than fair, glad you didn’t take it

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Shaft: I’d lose Sully for him way over Chandler but that’s just me. Hate bOston up and downs.

          • Shaft says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: ahhh, just pulled the plug on Wilson. Which offers (if any) do you think could work?:

            1. Chandler for Danny Green
            2. Chandler for Kemba Walker
            3. Sully for P Bev
            4. Lillard + Sully for Curry
            5. Chandler + Sully for Ibaka
            6. Chandler + Sully for Kawhi
            7. Sully for Batum

            It’s a 10-teamer, 8-cat league. I know that’s a lot. Sorry guys.

            • Shaft says:
              (link)

              @Shaft: Sorry. to be clear, im talking about Tyson Chandler in all the above trades, dropped Wilson already.

              • Shaft says:
                (link)

                @Shaft: sorry to keep blowing up your spot like this all night. Im sure you’re going to keep getting this question a bunch, but after tonight’s games you still like Nurkic over Gobert? I cant imagine Gobert hasnt beaten Kanter out for the starting spot yet.. thanks again JB and Slim, you guys continue to kill it season after season

                  (link)

                  @Shaft: Trade 3 could be taken if it fits everyone’s needs. Damn, probably missed the Ibaka window with how he’s played tonight. 6 could work if Kawhi’s owner is impatient. Other ones I def like for you but doubt they get taken.

                  No worries man! Yeah Still nurkic ROS, short term I would go Gobert. Man, Jazz are so good without Kanter! Kinda like their Josh Smith haha. Appreciate that man!

    Go out and grab Nurk. Denver traded Mozgoff to Cleveland today! Hurry up!

      @Bye Felicia: Good thing I got him in both my RCLs a week and a few days ago!

    Nurk or Nerlens?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Miles proudfoot: Is it that bad for Nerlens? I want to know if there are any other options but in a shallow league I say yes.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Miles proudfoot: I’d take Nurkic, but would want to own both

      • miles proudfoot says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Noel is the last guy on my squad. Otherwise the bottom is wiggins dieng collison. I think it’s a strong team.

        • miles proudfoot says:
          (link)

          @miles proudfoot: I think I’ll just pull the trigger and hope for the best. I’m stashing al Jeff but would rather not drop him

          • Miles proudfoot says:
            (link)

            @miles proudfoot: got him in one, trying in others. So Nurk over Plumlee, Gobert, slightly Nerlens but had to make the call…Bogut?

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Miles proudfoot: Ah gotcha, yeah not dropping your others. Wiggins looked great tonight. Yup Nurk over Plumlee and Gobert ROS for me, Gobert I’d take while Kanter is out though. Bogut is behind all those guys, I don’t see his minutes being what they were before

              • Miles proudfoot says:
                (link)

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Jesse: Hmmmm, I’d lean Favors I think, I think he has a good one

  27. Miles proudfoot says:

    One more…nurk or gobert

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Miles proudfoot: Def Nurk, I think I woulda taken Nurk over him a week ago

        @JB Gilpin: thanks guys. Ya should’ve listened done it a bit ago.

    Hey guys good evening, quick question in a 12 team H2H 9 cat would you rather have ros or as long as they are playing well cole Aldridge or drop him for mozgov
    I already have jursf. Thx for the help

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @tom: I think Aldrich (NY) has more upside than Mozgov. Mosgov has just been so bad, at eye level at least.

      @tom: Hey man! I’d take Cole, Mozgov is just a mix and match play for CLE. any time!

    Quick question Slim..
    I’m in a competitive 10 man 15 cat league, and I need to free up a roster spot for a streamer. My team is
    Kyrie Irving
    Jrue Holiday
    Gordon Hayward
    Bradley Beal
    Kevin Durant
    Anthony Davis
    Tyson Chandler
    Gorgeui Dieng
    Darren Collison
    Brook Lopez
    Ryan Anderson
    Nicholas Batum

    I want to package Anderson since I have 3 pels. Any packages you can think of? Thanks in advance

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @J: I’m no Slim, but maybe Anderson and Chandler for a gaurd? Seems blocks and boards are way solid. Mike Conley?

  30. Nurkic for President says:
    (link)

    H2H 9 CAT

    Jeff Teague
    James Harden
    Ty Lawson
    Brandon Knight
    Markieff Morris
    Tobias Harris
    Robert Covington
    Joe Johnson
    Marcin Gortat
    Zaza Pachulia
    Mason Plumlee
    Jusuf Nurkic

    Need to bench two… leaning towards benching Joe Johnson and Mason.
    Or bench Covington for JJ? and bench Zaza for Mason? The freethrow worries me though
    Kind of need boards to maintain my lead right now.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Nurkic for President: Forrrrr, tonight needed to bench two? Sorry if I missed ya man! Nurkic for president indeed!

    15 cat league who do I play tonight, Irving or beal? Might be a no brainier, but kyrie against Beverly might be bad. And beal against the Knicks is always good, especially with pierce out tonight. Thanks in advance

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Jesse: Sorry I missed ya man! I woulda stuck with Kyrie and hopefully you did!

    Wats good JB! Thanks 4 the read good stuff as always.

    Burke was dropped. Would u rather have him over Payton?

      JB Gilpin says:

      @740: All is good man, yourself? Nah, sticking with Payton. Like the dimes and steals more than the tad more scoring and 3s from burke. Any time!

    14 Teams, H2H, 9 cat.

    PG: IT3, Chalmers
    SG: Monta Ellis (PG), Thompson (SF)
    SF: Kawhi (SG), McDaniels (SG), Barnes
    PF: Ibaka (C), Millsap (C), T. Zeller (C), C. Zeller (C)
    C: Dieng, Nurkic

    Traded MCW for Tyler Zeller and Chalmers.
    Traded Markieff and Oladipo for Klay Thompson. Thoughts? (Thinking is Klay has an awesome playoff sched. So does Chalmers)

    Thoughts on team? I’m know I’m lacking assist but I usually am competitive. Thinking I trade Ellis for a assist guy?
