Julius Caesar was a brilliant tactician and politician, who expanded the Roman Empire. He got greedy, though, when he declared himself dictator. As a result, members of the Roman Senate conspired and stabbed him in the back, both literally and figuratively. Julius Randle is a no-nonsense player who bullies defenders down low. Bull in a china shop is an apt description, especially since he’s 6′ 9″ and 250 pounds. After he spent the first four years of his career in Los Angeles, he took his talents to New Orleans and didn’t mess around. He was the same bull that he had been with the Lakers. Last night, though….

….Julius did mess around, notching his sixth career triple-dub. In only 25 minutes! There’s been nothing but love for Julius in New Orleans, as he provides the team with a physical presence down low, who can also be a playmaker for the third-fastest team in the NBA for offensive pace. Ain’t nobody stabbing this Julius in the back. From a fantasy perspective, though, don’t go slicing and dicing your team to acquire his services. He’s a fine player, as he’s currently the 87th player according to Basketball Monster. The issues are the limited minutes, lack of threeecolas, low assists, and miniscule defensive contributions. Hopefully no one comes and stabs me in the back now.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

 

The Jazz got spanked 94-121, so minutes and production were off beat last night. Usually, that calls for NO BLURBS FOR YOU!!! But….

Ricky Rubio

28 4 6 3 1 4 5/6 10/13 3/4

Back-to-back games with at least 20 points, 3 steals, and 13 shot attempts. Over the past four games, Rubio has been a top 50 player for fantasy. Don’t sweat it. There will probably be another buy-low opportunity.

Bojan Bogdanovic

BoBo ain’t no bobo, as he led the Pacers in scoring last night. Over the last six games, he’s been the 26th player according to Basketball Monster. He’s more like a top 100 player, though, who provides threeecolas, boards, and steals.

Got the start and played 23 minutes. I thought that when Trevor Ariza returned, Bridges would return to the bench, but no, the Suns played him alongside Ariza and Devin Booker. That should show you what the organization thinks about the kid. He’s not a high usage player, but can contribute across the entire stat sheet.

Devin Booker

The two prior games before last night, Juancho had provided 20/11 and 25/9. He’s a great shooter, but even the Great Juancho has an off night from time to time. He’s starting, getting the minutes, and receiving the shot attempts. It’s nice that he’s provided 7, 11, 9, and 9 rebounds the past four games. A Hernangomez has been freed this year. It just wasn’t Willy. I guess the censors wouldn’t allow that to happen. Anyways, when Will Barton returns, Juancho could be negatively affected, but let’s deal with that when it happens.

The points and steals have picked up after starting the season slow in both of those categories. The free throw percentage has been under 60% the last few weeks, though. Yuck. I’m not too worried about it, as Bledsoe should be a top 40 player for fantasy.

    Hey man, what’s good! We’re spot on with the Wiz shituation. We were just talking about it in the other post and I had no idea that Wall cussed at his coach, and Beal went Butler at his teammates during practice. Lmao You know I don’t like drama, but I kind of wanna see what would happen with that dysfunctional squad given that I own OPJ. I’m excited, tbh. Lmao

    PG1—Jrue Holiday
    PG2—Spencer Dinwiddie
    SG1—Victor Oladipo
    SG2—Josh Richardson
    SG3—Gary Harris
    SF1—Robert Covington

    SF3—Mikal Bridges
    PF1—Kevin Durant
    PF2—Mike Muscala
    C1—Rudy Gobert
    C2—Jarrett Allen

    I know for weeks I’ve been saying that we need a C3 and that we keep failing at finding one. Tried Bamba and M. Rob, wasn’t a good experience, so now I’m shifting my focus on looking for a reliable PF2. I’m looking into Siakam, and I will need to give up Spencer. I love me some Spence but I’m sticking with my punt-assist build, and whoever helps boost FG is welcome to my squad. Would you do it? I would lose treys but Forbes is still on the wire, he definitely would help with 3s and fill in the PG position left by Spence. With regards to points, Siakam has proven so far this season that he can score so I don’t think that that would be a problem.

    What do you think buddy?

            @Son:

            Bud, do you think FVV’s 20 min per contest is enough to warrant a pickup? Was eyeing Forbes but he just got snagged! Ugh

    AYYYO!

    What it do Son ?! Thanks for another installment of what you saw.

    Would you make any swaps here ? –

    Russell/Lonzo/Dunn/Tyreke
    P. George/Tobias/Lamb/Saric/Osman/Knox
    Embiid/Gobert/Bamba/Robinson/Taj

    The guys on my chopping block – Taj/Robinson/Knox maybe Tyreke/Osman

    The guys I’m looking at – JaMychal Green/Temple/KCP

    Payton was just dropped.

    Hey son! Would you take Danny Green, Crowder, or Nance in a h2h 9-cat? Who has the highest pure ranking value ROS? Thank you

    • Son

      Son says:

      Nance out of the three, but that could change if/when Love returns.

        @Son:
        Man, I’ve been holding this guy through all his duds. He finally showed up when he was starting but once Cedi comes back he posts another dud.

          Yeah, I hear ya, but per minute he produces.

    Hello-

    12 Team Keeper League — Would you trade:

    Fox FOR Teague/Nurkic

    My Team:

    PG: Curry/Fox/Shai/Rozier/Lin
    SG: Harden/McGrueder/Lamb/Wade
    SF: Hardaway/Hayward/Mikal Bridges
    PF: Giannis/Barnes/JJJ
    C:Valenciunas/Sabonis/WCJ/Len

    • Son

      Son says:

      I like Fox, but it does fit your squad

      • Jeff says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        So you would do it?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Jeff: I wouldn’t, but that’s because I’ve never been a Teague or Nurkic guy and I’m high on Fox, but it does make sense for your squad.

      • jeff says:

        @Son:

        what about if i trade Harden for Jokic?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @jeff: Now we’re talking. I was going to suggest Curry or Harden for a C upgrade. I kind of prefer trading Curry

          • jeff says:
            (link)

            @Son:

            He wont do Curry. Should i ask for 2019 2nd rd pick to go with it?

    What do you think about Trevor Ariza or Thad Young ROS??

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I prefer Ariza out of the two. There’s a chance he gets traded, but he’s getting the minutes and contributes a little something something across the board.

      • bball20405 says:
        (link)

        @Son: Will Thad turn it around?? Or will Sabonis keep killing his value.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Probably not. Doesn’t mean he won’t be useful

    Son! Great analysis and recap as usual.

    I just pulled off a trade and needed some positive reassurance from you that I made the right move, lol. I gave up Drummond, Adams, L-Williams for Embiid, Sabonis, Porter – do you think I got the better side of this trade for remainder of season?

    Rest of team is Bledsoe, Murray, White, T-Johnson, Ross, Prince, Siakam, Nance, Jokic. I’m in a 14 team H2H 11-cat league (PF and DD are extra cats).

    Also, I think it’s time I gave up on White and was eyeing one of Mikal Bridges, Bullock, Caldwell-Pope for waiver wire pickup this week – would you go for any of these 3 amigos in lieu of D-White?

    Muchas gracias!

    • Son

      @Guillermo: De nada Guillermo. Thanks for the kind words. I slightly prefer the Drummond side but I don’t hate the trade.

    Should I drop Nance for Oubre now that Oubre is starting?

      Sure. Try it out

    Choose one for rest of season:
    Bogdan, Bojan, Jon Isaac, E’twuan Moore

    As usual delightful recap!
