I was very surprised when I Googled Triple D’s. Triple D’s Place, a Jamaican restaurant and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Where were the big, beautiful breasteses? We have truly advanced as a society. Anyways, it’s bad if you get a D in school. Mcy D’s is good when you are hungry. How about for fantasy? Double D, DeMar DeRozan, has been a valuable fantasy player for quite some time. He has averaged over 20 points per game in each of the last five seasons. He has grabbed around 4.5 boards, dished out close to four dimes, 211’d around one, knocked down 82% of his free throws, and shot 45% from the field. The two areas that he lacked in were blocks and threes. Well, last night, DD was lighting it up from three-land.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
45 5 3 2 1 2 6/9 13/21 13/15

It’s only appropriate that he shot 6-of-9 from downtown, huh? The Universe is awesome. Now, before you start getting all excited, DD’s season high for threes was only three. On the year, he’s making 0.7 on 2.5 attempts. Well above his career average, but fewer than the 0.8 on 2.7 attempts back in 2013 season. Last night’s game was more than likely an outlier, but we can all dream. I guess that’s the only thing one can do regarding Triple D’s. Unless you like Jamaican food and Guy Fieri.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Kyle Lowry:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 9 4 3 0 7 3/9 6/15 8/8

With how well Lowry rebounds, it always surprises me that he only has 11 career triple dubs. Top 25 player. Hope he stays healthy this year.

OG Anunoby:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
6 0 0 2 0 3 1/4 2/6 1/2

Played 21 minutes. Even the Force needs a break from time to time.

Jonas Valanciunas:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 2 5 1 0 0 0 0 1/6 0

Played 16 minutes, as the Amir and Odale Holmes ran circles around him. Can only play JV against slow, lumbering big men.

Delon Wright:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 4 4 1 0 2 2/4 4/11 2/2

Since returning from injury, Wright has played 16, 13, 19, and 28 minutes. Prior to the injury, he was getting minutes in the low-to-mid 20s. He’s not the best shooter, but does contribute a little something something across the board and provides versatility.

Dario Saric almost messed around.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 18 10 9 2 2 3 1/3 7/10 3/3

Played 37 minutes and always gets a usage bump when Embiid sits.

With JJ Redick out, Jerryd Bayless got the start at shooting guard and played 34 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 11 1 1 4 0 2 1/7 5/13 0

Brown went to Jerryd!

Richaun Holmes:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 15 7 2 1 1 1 0 7/12 1/2

Odale Holmes. The Amir typically gets the start when Embiid sits, but Holmes is the guy you want.

Ben Simmons:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 6 4 0 1 7 0 9/14 2/5

Man, there’s a lot to hate about Simmons. 55% free throw percentage. No threes. Has no outside shot. And people clown Lonzo. At least he shoots. With that said, he’s still putting up 17 points, 9 boards, 8 assists, 2 211s, and 1 block. Can’t wait till he figures out how to shoot.

Lauri Markkanen:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 25 2 2 1 0 1 1/4 11/17 2/2

The Markkman led the Bulls in scoring and just fell short of defeating the Cavs, 112-115. Now, all we have to wait for is the simulation to get rid of Dirk so Markkanen can get fully unleashed.

Denzel Valentine:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 5 4 1 1 1 4/7 7/10 0

Played 36 minutes. If he keeps ballin’ like this, I may have to replace Billy Ray as my favorite Valentine……..Naw, would never happen.

Kris Dunn:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 10 5 14 1 0 4 0/2 5/11 0

We Dunn got us a point guard in Chicago, boys and girls!

Nikola Mirotic:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 5 1 0 0 0 3/6 5/9 2/4

Played 25 minutes, while Bobby Portis played 14 minutes. Hoiberg is playing with fire here. I’m truly frightened that Portis will go all Last Boyscout on someone.

LeBron James:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
34 6 9 3 0 4 2/5 12/23 8/8

Played 39 minutes. Might as well play him 48 minutes, but then people would get suspicious and start poking around. Eventually, someone would see him plugged into the wall or tightening the bolts on his titanium skeleton or getting the latest software uploaded.

Dwayne Wade:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 10 3 4 3 2 5 0/3 5/12 0

Played 24 minutes. That’s pretty much what we can expect from him this season. The interesting note is that he’s played in all but three games this year. I thought it was more, but hips don’t lie.

Jayson Tatum:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 3 0 2 0 3 2/6 6/10 3/4

There was some concern after he dislocated his right pinkie on Wednesday, but all is good. Tatum could very well join the 1/1/1 club this year. Is Ben the Rookie of the Year for sure?

Kyrie Irving:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 32 3 4 1 0 1 6/15 12/27 2/2

Top 10 player. Pretty crazy, but so is saying the world is flat. Is Kyrie playing 3D chess while we are tiddlywinking?

Jaylen Brown did not play due to an Achilles injury, so Marcus Smart got the start and played 34 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 10 4 3 4 0 1 1/6 3/10 3/3

I hate going shopping with my wife sometimes. Very inefficient. Goes back and forth. Back and forth. But, at the end of the day, she usually ends up with a good deal and gets what she needs. That’s what it’s like to own Smart in fantasy. He will produce at the end of the night, but will be horribly inefficient doing it.

The Knicks beat the Celtics 102-93. Shocking, but not terribly so, as the Celtics were playing on the back-to-back. What is insane is that they won with Kristaps Porzingis playing like doo doo.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
1 5 1 0 0 2 0/3 0/11 1/2

I think someone has been doing certain activities of a certain kind with a woman that has the initials J and S.

So, who was the savior for the Knicks? Who else? Michael Beasley of course.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
32 12 1 0 0 5 1/1 13/20 5/6

The Michael Bay of fantasy basketball strikes again!

Why does Ron Baker play 21 minutes?

JaMychal Green:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 10 2 0 0 1 0/3 5/10 2/2

The Forrest Gump of fantasy. You never know what you’re going to get.

Tyreke Evans:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 9 5 0 0 1 1/6 8/20 4/4

Played 34 minutes and continues to start at point guard. I’m driving down the highway. The tread of my tire is flat. This is how I feel owning Tyreke. I can still drive at high speeds, but know that at any moment the tire could go…..BOOM!

Tyson Chandler sat so Greg Monroe got the start at center.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
8 12 7 0 0 3 0 4/8 0

Alex Len played 21 minutes and continues to be the reserve center.

Marquese Jesus F’ing Chriss played 16 minutes. He doesn’t even deserve a stat box. Interestingly, Dragan Bender played 32 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 4 5 1 0 0 0 1/6 1/8 0

No wonder they keep rolling Chriss out there.

Isaiah Canaan:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 10 3 4 2 0 1 2/3 3/7 2/2

Last night, I said that Canaan went prison yard on Mike James. “Yo, Mike. Those minutes look my size.” Well, James was a DNP CD. Dude is a straight gangster.

Kawhi Leonard:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 10 5 2 2 1 1 1/3 4/8 1/2

Played 20 minutes. Me has a feeling that Kawhi will be a tease until February or March. He’s going to rest a few times a week and play around 20 minutes a game. There is no reason for the Spurs to ramp him up until much later in the season.

Pau Gasol sat so Joffrey Lauvergne got the start and played 26 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 11 6 0 0 0 3 0 4/11 3/4

King Joffrey is just a name to keep in mind during Spurs Siestas.

Tony Parker played 26 minutes, Patty Mills played 26 minutes, and Dejounte Murray played 19 minutes. It’s a three-headed monster at point guard for the Spurs.

With Danny Green sitting, Bryn Forbes got the start and played 24 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 12 3 1 1 0 2 3/4 3/5 3/3

A money line, but always expect more from a Forbes.

Ricky Rubio:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
11 11 7 1 0 6 1/2 2/7 6/6

Played 38 minutes. ‘Twas a nice bounce back after his pitiful performance in OKC. Just wait till Donovan Mitchell returns from injury.

Rodney Hood:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 3 0 1 1 1 3/10 12/24 2/3

Played 35 minutes. Hood is awesome when he plays. Unfortunately, he’s always going down. The women must love that. Someone needs to get Hood a Life Alert.

True, true. Post ASB is a great time for him to go HAM. But I hope in the 24 MPG you’re saying he puts up great numbers and no longer sits out games so it would be easy for me to move him.

Hi Son,

I’m wondering what your thoughts on this trade in a standard h2h league 12 teamer? Giannis for Wall/D Booker/Adams. I have Giannis and am sitting towards the bottom of the rankings, and haven’t had a winning week since earlier in the season. I figured I could trade Giannis for some added depth to possibly turn things around.

Thinking about making a run for Bron or Giannis. Going to check out needs of their teams, but for Son or anyone else, what does it usually take to try and nab a 1st rounder? I’m thinking a 2nd and a 4th? Is it generally worth a 2nd and 3rd

Just got Bell. Placed a $5 on the kid. The guy who just lost Vooch placed $3 on him. It is a good day.

Just an awful week for me. I don’t ever recall Gordon and Capela playing a single game. While Mitchell only played once, and James Johnson played a grand total of 13 mins if I’m not mistaken. And the Spurs and Kawhi are still a pain in the ass. Truly disgusting! Ha!

Son, in the second league that I joined in someone just dropped Vucevic, worth a claim right now? I do have the #1 priority so I have a 100% of nabbing him.

Marc Gasol
Wall
Oladipo
Bazemore
Batum
Ariza
Collison
Collins
Love
Gobert, IR
Harris
Aaron Gordon

As you can I see I got a plethora of bigs but Gordon and Gobert are both already injured. I think I do have someone to cut–Collison. The problem is he’s my only other point guard. I could trade him and another 1 for a 2 for 1 deal to make room for Vooch but I’m playing with a bunch of brainless and envious league mates who wouldn’t let any trade to go through, so trading isn’t an option. What do you think

Hey son!

What’s up? Been busy lately and was only do catch-ups on the articles today lol

I’ve been offered in my other league, 12 man 9 cat.

For my Capella + Jaylen for his Wall + Pau Gasol

My team:
Joker, CP3, Middleton, Capela, Rubio, Porter, Murray, Prince, Jaylen, Eric G, Kanter, Teodosic and Biyombo

Should I take it? I’m having second thoughts because I already have CP3, Joker, Rubio and Teodosic for my ast guys, but Wall + Gasol is not a bad offer for Capella and Jaylen tho haha.
