Would you want to be average at everything or great at one thing? Being average at everything would make you a Renaissance man/woman or handy man/woman. I’d be happy to be considered either and the experience of life would be vast and fulfilling. Or would it? Another way of looking at being average at everything is, well…..Meh. Status quo. Ordinary. How could life truly be fulfilling if you never experienced excellence or being a POS at something? So then being great at one thing would be the way to go? One would definitely experience the highs and lows of life. But, at the expense of what? There are examples of savants who could never perform menial tasks like tying one’s shoelaces. Now, what if you were great at everything? Problem solved. But Son, that is an impossibility. Tell that to Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Don’t tell me that he does not excel at 3-point shooting. He will. And soon. So there. Eric Bledsoe leaves the game after three minutes due to injury? Don’t worry, coach. Giannis. Two game losing streak? Don’t worry, coach. Giannis. <insert problem here> Don’t worry, coach. Giannis.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Jimmy Butler:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 7 3 1 1 4 1/3 7/15 9/9

Ever hire a maid or cleaning service? It takes time for the operation to run smoothly. They need to get comfortable with the new environment, while also taking in specific instructions from the client. Thibs brought in Butler to clean what was inside the Target Center. It took time for things to gel. Butler had to figure out that Thibs didn’t want him cleaning what was underneath all the seats in the stadium. Just what was on the court, but not like those guys that mop the floor. Anyways, after a rough start to the season, Butler is a top 10 player for fantasy and is the head of the household on the court for the Timberwolves.

Jeff Teague:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 2 0 10 4 1 2 0/2 1/12 0/1

An impressively terrible performance by Teague. There was the “revenge” narrative, as the Hawks traded him to the Pacers back in 2016. Maybe he wasn’t angry enough? Maybe he was too angry?

Karl-Anthony Towns:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 13 3 2 1 3 1/2 6/8 2/2

How is Towns not putting up AT LEAST 15 shots a game? In the last six games, he’s attempted fewer than 10 shots in four. Meow. KAT really needs to get some dog in him. With that said, he’s still a top 10 player for fantasy and leads the league with 44 double-dubs. He’s played in 53 games.

Taj Gibson:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 4 2 4 1 0 0 8/12 1/2

I’d imagine having a harem to be like…..Rakim, there is a beautiful woman over there. Please inquire if she would like to “live” with me. She would? Her name is Dame? Great, now make sure the accomodations are to her liking. A few months later. Rakim, I yearn for Debbie. I remember the good times we had many years ago. Go inquire to see if she would like to “live” me with. When my six-year-old son gets a new toy, he throws the old one into the corner. Well, Dame is Gorgui Dieng and Debbie is Taj Gibson and Thibs is the six-year-old son. I kind of feel bad for Dieng. He signed a four-year, $64 million contract? Dieng! I no longer feel bad for him.

Taurean Prince:

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

Prince and Teague were engaged in an epic battle of ineptitude.

Dennis Schroder:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 2 11 2 1 7 0/2 5/15 8/9

Dennis may be a Menace to opposing teams, but he’s been the Man for the Hawks. His usage rate the last five games has been: 33, 27, 34, 36, and 39. The Hawks are likely sellers at the deadline, so that usage rate should remain high for the remainder of the season.

Kent Bazemore:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 22 4 4 1 2 3 4/8 8/14 2/3

Clark would be disappointed, as Bazemore is bringing unwanted attention to the name. Career-highs in assists, steals, blocks, and 3s. There is the possibility that he gets moved at the deadline, but he does have a hefty two years and $37 million left on his contract.

John Collins:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 8 11 0 0 0 3 0 4/4 0

Played 20 minutes. Should get more minutes when Ersan Ilyasova is moved.

Dwight Howard:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 22 11 2 0 1 3 0/1 9/15 4/5

Has double-dubbed in eight straight games. Over that period, Dwight is scoring 17.3 points, grabbing 15.9 boards, dishing out a dime, stealing 1.1, and blocking four shot a game. If only he could shoot free throws.

Nicolas Batum:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 4 2 0 1 4 5/10 8/17 1/2

Could be primed for a big second half. Looks healthy, getting minutes, and hoisting up shots. He has the occasional bad shooting night, but usually contributes in the ancillary categories to maintain a relatively high floor.

Kemba Walker:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 3 4 1 0 3 3/5 7/15 6/7

Michael Jordan said that he would only trade Kemba for an All-Star in return, which pretty much means he’s not trading him.

That’s how I see the dynamic right now. But then why do I have the feeling that this will be happening soon?

Thaddeus Young:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 4 4 2 0 1 0/2 8/12 0

Has really played well lately. How well? Almost a top 25 player for fantasy over the last two weeks. For the season, he’s now a top 60 player, which is crazy because he’s only a 62% free throw shooter.

Domantas Sabonis:

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

Played 28 minutes. Will begin to cede minutes because of the aforementioned Young and….

Myles Turner:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 4 3 0 1 2 4/6 8/11 2/2

Played 21 minutes. It’s usually a good sign when the points scored is more than the minutes played. Should slowly start getting his minutes back up to the 30 minute range. I remember driving some hoopties back in the day. You’d have to tap on the odometer to get it to work properly. Well, this Odometer is no hooptie, but fantasy owners have been tapping the glass for quite some time.

Dragan Bender got the start at power forward and played 20 minutes.

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

Honey, Dragan played like shit again tonight. I’m off to the bar to go on a Bender. Don’t wait up for me.

TJ Warren:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 7 1 1 0 1 0/2 10/18 4/6

When Devin Booker does not play, which was the case last night, Warren sees a usage rate of 31.7% (an increase of 4.7%). Mount up!

With Tyson Chandler out, Greg Monroe got the start at center and played 23 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 14 6 3 1 0 3 0 6/8 2/5

You play him when Chandler sits. EZ PZ. Why doesn’t Monroe play every night? The same reason Triano plays Bender.

Alex Len:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 12 8 0 1 0 2 0 3/4 6/9

Len returned after missing three games and played 25 minutes. The logical thing would be for the Suns to play their young guys. Maybe Triano is playing imaginary poker against his imaginary friend. I know what he has, but he doesn’t know that I know what he has, but he thinks that I’m thinking that he has this, so I will make believe that I think that I’m thinking what he’s thinking….my head just exploded.

Tyler Ulis:

Josh Jackson:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 20 8 0 0 1 3 2/5 6/16 6/8

Played 29 minutes. Has played over 20 minutes in each of the past four games and scored 20 points in two. He’s attempted 16, 13, 17, and 11 shots during that span. Chugga chugga choo chooooooo! Unfortunately, he hasn’t been contributing much outside of rebounds, but with his length and athleticism, I’d expect some of those D stats to be there.

Jared Dudley:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 1 3 2 0 0 2/5 4/8 3/3

Played 28 minutes. Just some more evidence that Triano is spending a wee bit too much time at the bar.

Jerrell Martin:

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

Got the start at power forward and played 34 minutes. Our very own dynasty guru, Craig Bozic, said on the pod (go check it out) that Martin is meh. Listen to Craig.

Dillon Brooks:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 3 2 0 0 4 1/2 5/8 1/2

Played 26 minutes and got the start at small forward. With all the injuries in Memphis, Brooks should continue to get plenty of run. There’s limited upside, as he doesn’t contribute much across the board, but he’s going to get minutes and drain some 3s.

Marc Gasol:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 10 1 1 3 4 1/4 5/10 1/1

Played 24 minutes. Will probably get plenty of siestas going forward.

Andrew Harrison:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 11 5 6 0 2 2 1/2 5/10 0

Played 30 minutes and started at point guard. With Tyreke Evans most probably shipped off at the deadline, Harrison should assume the point guard duties. He’s not really good, but should get plenty of run and contribute a little something something in everything but blocks.

Wayne Selden:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 2 6 0 0 2 3/4 7/12 0/1

Played 31 minutes and got the start at shooting guard. Balled out in the Summer League, has good size, and could be in line for a ton of run going forward. Won’t contribute in the periphery categories but has 30-point upside.

Tyreke Evans:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 27 1 4 1 0 1 3/5 11/17 2/2

He gone. But to where?

Deyonta Davis:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 4 0 1 1 1 0 5/6 2/2

Only played 17 minutes, but if we think Gasol is getting siestas, then Davis could be the main beneficiary. Boards and blocks.

Dario Saric:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 19 9 2 0 0 2 0/8 7/18 5/5

When Joel Embiid sits, Saric gets a 3.7% usage rate bump.

Robert Covington:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 6 2 1 2 3 1/8 3/12 6/6

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.

With Embiid sitting, Amir Johnson got the start and played 18 minutes. Richaun Holmes played 23 minutes, and Trevor Booker only got 13 minutes of run. Basically, Embiid or bust.

Eric Bledsoe only played three minutes due to an ankle injury. Tony Snell started for him in the second half and ended up playing 31 minutes.

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

If you need 3s, Snell could be worth a short-term pickup. He won’t contribute much else, though. I’d assume that Malcolm Brogdon would move to the point with Snell at shooting guard if Bledsoe were to miss time.

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

Sterling Brown:

Played 20 minutes. Last five games: 20, 28, 27, 27, and 39 minutes. Can score and board. Maybe get his 211 on from time to time. Isn’t fantasy relevant, but someone to keep an eye on if one of the starters sits.

James Johnson:

Hassan Whiteside:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

Played 26 minutes. The matchup against the Mavs doesn’t get much better for a player like Whiteside. Worst rebounding team in the league? One of the worst at defending the center position? Thank you very much. He hasn’t been playing in the fourth quarter recently, only four minutes last night, so not all is peachy.

Tyler Johnson:

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

Dirk Nowitzki:

    I’m amazed of how you start your write-up with a random back story to making it fantasy basketball relevant.

    Surprised, amazed rejoiced – this is me when reading your stuff.

    Seriously, aren’t you working on a book yet? No? Better start writing a book cause you got what it takes!

    On the fantasy side, what are your thoughts on the blockbuster trade? Any player to watch out? I’m already sick of Bradley, I’ve always wanted him to let go because he sucks, big time. Dang! On the other hand, Prince is devastating to own due to inconsistency, him and ABrad’s hurting my team. Josh Jackson is somehow okay but still raw.

    Boban out, Reggie B out, Stanley J out these mothafuckas are so fast lol

    Do you have any prospect to pick? Line-up is pretty much the same. I currently suck at TO, FG%, FT%, STL

    3PTS, PTS, REB, AST, BLK somewhat are my strength

    Boo, DMitch, Jamal, Dejounte, Avery, Milos
    Prince, Josh Jackson, Dray, Al, Joker, Myles,Jarrett

      As for the trade, go listen to the pod. Viz, Craig, Brent, and I all gave our thoughts and spent a fair amount of time discussing it.

      Prince is tough to own but he’s going to get a ton of minutes and has potential. Take the good with the bad. If you want someone with a higher floor but lower ceiling, look around at other rosters for a vet. A trade should be a possibility.

      I’d hold onto to AB to see if a change of scenery helps. As for Josh Jackson, he’s raw but he has a ton of potential and should get a ton of run going forward.

      Not sure on pickups because I don’t know who’s available.

      I like the squad but can always improve it. Good luck!

        Wall got hurt and I replaced him Satorinsky temporarily but the injury doesn’t bother me that much since I have CP3, Rubio, Jamal and Joker as other source of assists.

      My two cents; I would drop Frenchise. Until he gets more minutes and produces more consistently I’d pass on him, The emergence of Trey Burke doesn’t help him either.
      I’d consider Bullock over Kennard if he’s available.

              @Mr. Blast: I like it. Hopefully Miro does get traded to NO

              @Mr. Blast: I agree. Wall is having surgery, so no telling how he will recover

    Sup Son!

    Have Danny Green and Jonathan Simmons right now in 12 team,9 cat H2H.

    Both have been really inconsistent lately. I have the rooster coming back soon from IR, so might have to drop 1 of them to begin with….

    Would you drop either of them for Bullock? Rivers was dropped due to being injured, would he be a better speculative add to try and stash?

    Thanks !

      @Relax!: I think I’d rather have Green and Simmons

    • Brent

      @Relax!: Drop Green and activate Gallo (he starts tonight). Rivers is still a couple weeks away, but you have an IR spot opening up. So maybe drop Green for Rivers, then put Rivers on IR and activate Gallo.

      If Bullock is going to keep getting 30 minutes a game, then these last 2 games look great. But he also shot around 50% and he won’t do that consistently. I’m not a huge Simmons fan, so I’d look at that spot as a place to take a chance, but be prepared for Bullock to bust.

      My 2 cents

    I’m languishing in mediocrity – 6th place in a 12-teamer – and I’m thinking I’ll take one more run at the add/drops before I consider going into sell mode (it’s a keeper). I don’t think I’m one player away from being a serious contender – and we’re not allowed to trade first round picks or draftees – so bleh. (Because we like to keep things complicated, guys with an asterisk I can keep next year at an 11th or 10th round price, but so far I’m only certain I’m keeping Murray).

    I’m thinking of adding W.Matthews and Gallinari and dropping RHJ and TyJo. What do you think? Also, I have about $55 in my FAAB left – how much do I put in for Gallo?

    Team: Lillard, Teague, Murray*, TyJo*, Beal, BogBog*, A.Gordon, RHJ*, Randle, Zingis, Gobert

      Neither of those guys will move the needle. Gallo not only has the injury concern but now Harris will likely take some of his minutes. I’d look to see what keepers you can acquire.

      @Not your average Joe: I’d rather have Gallo thank RHJ and just hope he stays healthy. You’re in a spot where you might as well take a risk. I’m also not a huge fan TyJo in Fantasy. You do have assists covered though…maybe TyJo for Gallo in that case….but Son is right, it’s not really enough to jump a lot, but it’s a start

    12 team h2h 9 cat keeper league.
    Got offered Jrue and an 8th rounder next year for Dejounte and a 13th or Kuzma (drafted in the 9th) and an 8th for dejounte and a 13th. What do you think? Dejounte was’t drafted so he’d be my 13th next year if I keep him. Jrue was drafted in the 5th round so I’d lose my 4th next year if I kept it (not worth imo). I’m currently 10th in the league, 3 games out of the last playoff spot. I’ll be looking to keep lavine (lose 9th round), possibly randle (lose 6th round), and possibly kanter (lose 9th round).
    My squad:
    * Guards: Lillard, Elfrid, Lavine, Dejounte, Rondo, lamb
    * Forwards: Lebron, Bullock
    * Bigs: M. gasol, Randle, Kanter, Dirk, Z.bo (stream)

    Would you take either trade or just keep dejounte? Thanks, great writeup as always.

      @Optimistic: Thanks! I’m keeping Dejounte.

    Thanks son what do you think of this trade?

    I give Oladipo and Aaron Gordon

    I get Simmons-Brandon Ingram-Levert-Deaaron Fox

    Doesn’t seem like enough? what are your thoughts?

    I lost cousins so I’m thinking about countering.
