Buffalo Wild Wings has a chart for the spiciness of the sauces in their menu: smilin’, sizzlin’, and screamin’. An Indonesian restaurant I saw on the internet had a chart of spiciness on the wall: 1 pepper, 2 peppers, 3 peppers, 4 peppers, and 5 peppers. The greatest spiciness chart, though, comes from my Korean brethren:

Last night, Steph Curry was at 8.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
42 9 7 1 0 2 9/14 11/20 11/12

Played 34 minutes last night. After missing 11 games due to injury, Curry has played 34, 29, and 37 minutes in the three games since. With the nine threeecolas, that brings his total for the season to 80, which places him second in the league behind James Harden’s 83. Curry has played five fewer games!!! It’s only been 15 games, but Curry is the #2 player for fantasy on a per-game basis. The 30.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.1 steals per game are ridiculous. The 93% from the free throw line on 4.8 attempts is fantastic. The 51% from the field when he attempts 10.4 threeecola attempts a game is ludicrous. But the most laughable stat for Curry is the 5.3 threeecolas he makes per game. That’s almost more than the rebounds and assists per game. Harden is second with 4.2. Third place? Lauri Markkanen with 3.5. Way past F**k, right?

Beep. Boop. Bop. You know who was feeling saucy last night? The Stocktonator, as it had Curry at #5 last night.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

 

Kevin Durant

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 10 9 1 2 4 4/7 9/16 3/4

Almost messes around and fills the entire stat sheet yet…..it’s wasn’t even close to being spicy enough. Why do I hear a douche in my head screaming, “Do you even lift, bro?!”

Jonas Jerebko

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

Got the start at power forward and played 22 minutes. Jerebko has shown to be useful when he gets time, as he can stretch the floor with his J and does work on the glass. Draymond Green is close to returning, so Jerebko will be relegated back to a bench role, but he could be a streamer in the right situations.

Tristan Thompson

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 19 3 0 0 0 0 6/8 2/6

Over the past eight games, Thompson has been a top 60 player. He’s averaging 14.8 boards a game over that span!!!

Cedi Osman

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 3 1 2 0 1 3/6 6/12 1/2

If he can be this efficient every game, then that would be Osman!

The Mavericks got smoked by the Pelicans, 106-132.

Luka Doncic

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

Only played 22 minutes. Even God had to rest a day after making the world.

DeAndre Jordan

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

Only played 24 minutes. How is this line even possible?

Julius Randle

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 18 1 0 0 1 2/3 11/16 3/7

Nikola Mirotic did not play, so Randle got the start and played 35 minutes. Still only 23 years old and has one-year, $9 million left on his contract.

From a fantasy perspective, though, he’s a top 100 player because he doesn’t contribute much in threeecolas, steals, or blocks.

Cheick Diallo

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

That’s how much of a blowout it was. Cheick please!

Nicholas Batum

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 7 8 1 0 0 3/6 7/17 1/1

He lives! Batum has been very disappointing this season, which can be partly attributed to the productive year from Kemba Walker. Batum is averaging two fewer shot attempts per game. With that said, he’s the #121 player for fantasy, well off the 60-range he often found himself in years past. Last season, he ended as the #99 player. Batum owners would sacrifice their first-born for that.

Kemba Walker

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 2 5 1 0 1 1/5 6/16 2/3

Speaking of Kemba, after the insanely hot start to the season, he has been just as cold of late. Over the past seven games, he’s shooting 36% from the field and is the #126 player in fantasy. After having a usage rate over 30 in the early going, that number has ticked down to the 26-28 range.

Jeremy Lamb

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 11 2 1 0 0 2/5 6/18 4/5

Lamb is a top 40 player, which makes him a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad man.

Taj Gibson

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

Continues to start and played 25 minutes. Only the fourth double-dub of the season, but that’s back-to-back games with one. Which makes two. Which is appropriate because of the double-dub. I apologize. It’s late.

Robert Covington

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 6 1 2 1 2 1/3 6/9 4/4

Praise be the Lord. Top 15 player for fantasy.

Andrew Wiggins

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
26 6 5 0 1 4 3/5 11/19 1/3

These are all things Wiggins can do. He just doesn’t do them consistently. Scratch that. He just doesn’t do them more than a few times a year. He’s never been a top 100 player for fantasy and, over the past seven games, he’s the #231 player. He’s shooting 38% on the season. With that said, he’s still only 23 years old. At what point can I stop writing, “he’s still only ____ years old?” 26, right?

Karl-Anthony Towns

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
35 12 3 2 6 2 4/5 13/20 5/7

Me-f’ing-ow!!! Top 10 player for fantasy. I would still have a hard time putting hard-earned money down on him leading a team to the championship, though.

Jeff Teague

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

A career-high in assists for Teague. Man, KAT has a me-f’ing-ow game, Wiggins was efficient and contributed across the board, and Teague dished out a career-high dimes. Aliens. Only explanation.

Blake Griffin

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
31 7 4 0 1 7 4/11 11/22 5/6

Still boggles the mind that he doesn’t deliver the D. That’s what she said. Anyways, in 2014, Blake attempted 0.1 threeecolas and ended as the #28 player for fantasy. Since then, the threeecolas attempts have increased every year, while the fantasy ranking has gone lower (0.2/#40, 0.6/#44, and 1.9/#58). Hmmmmm.

Andre Drummond

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

Some people count sheep to fall asleep. Dre won’t be able to fall asleep because of all the deers running around.

Reggie Jackson

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 7 5 1 0 1 1/5 6/15 2/3

Played 24 minutes. Ish Smith only played 15 minutes due to injuring his groin, which could bring a slight uptick in minutes for Jackson. We shall see.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 8 5 1 1 5 0/2 6/12 3/4

The steals are back baby! This song is in my head now. Fittingly it’s a Chili’s commerical. Chilis are hot and spicy. So was Steph Curry last night. Mind blown. It all connects.

Tobias Harris

Mike Conley

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 7 4 2 2 3 2/4 9/16 2/4

You don’t get a five-year, $152 million contract by taking games off. Over the past six games, he’s been a top 20 player. It’s nice to see Conley healthy again.

JaMychal Green

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 11 1 2 0 1 0/4 7/12 5/6

Played 29 minutes off the bench. Mainly a points and rebounds player, Green will chip in some steals and has averaged over 26 minutes over the last six games.

Joakim Noah

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

Played 13 minutes. I don’t know why I wrote him up. Just impressed  I guess that he’s still in the league and that the Knicks still owe him $38 million even though he’s playing for Memphis on a one-year, $1.7 million contract. This has to be some bet owner Robert Pera has or he just wants to stick it to James Dolan. Either one would be freaking hilarious.

Moe! It was Butler’s turn to be the man. Over the past six games, Butler has been the #9 player for fantasy. There will be ups and downs, as the Sixers have so many options, but you won’t find many better options who contribute across the board like Jimmy.

Kawhi Leonard

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

Whatever planet that Kawhi is from, I hope that we humans do not piss them off. Imagine a bunch of Kawhi’s screaming down from spaceships and attacking us with impunity. For you aliens from Kawhi’s home planet, here is a clip proving that he is all good:

Jonas Valanciunas

Kyle Lowry

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
7 4 4 3 1 4 1/7 2/8 2/2

Man, Lowry has been really struggling as of late. Over the past six games, he’s shot 37% from the field. He has no confidence in his J, as he’s foregoing wide-open looks and passing to teammates. He’ll be fine. If someone is getting antsy, I’d pounce.

Paul George

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
47 15 4 0 1 2 6/13 15/27 11/14

Just missed tying a career-high by one point. This performance was rated R from PG, as he was murdering defenders all night. For the season, he’s the #6 player for fantasy.

Russell Westbrook

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 15 17 1 0 2 2/9 9/23 1/2

Just Russ messing around with another triple-dub. Yawn. Moved into sole possession for third on the all-time triple-dub list. 30 more to catch Magic and 73 to catch Oscar Robertson.

Nerlens Noel

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

Played 14 minutes. If you are feigning for blocks and steals with some boards, then take a hit of Noel. It’s tough to rely on him, though, because he only gets 14 minutes per game.

Dennis Schroder

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

Joe Harris

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 7 2 1 0 0 3/4 6/12 4/5

Returned from injury and played 34 minutes. Not your Average Joe, Harris plays over 30 minutes and provides points, threeecolas, with a smattering of boards, dimes, and steals. The union boys down at the docks would be mighty proud.

Allen Crabbe

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 4 2 1 0 3 7/13 7/15 1/3

Played a team-high 37 minutes. Too bad Crabbe isn’t a defensive stalwart, so that I could highlight his crab-like agility when locking down opposing ball handlers. Oh well. If you need threeecolas, Crabbe is your guy. Just know that you’ll want to throw him into the ocean from time to time.

Spencer Dinwiddie

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 0 2 1 2 1 1/4 6/11 4/8

With Harris back, Dinwiddie went back to the bench. It ain’t no thing, though, as he still received 30 minutes of run. Points, threeecolas, and assists are what you get, which is good for a top 125 player.

Otto Porter Jr.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 11 5 1 0 6 2/9 9/19 0

Played 43 minutes. Look what happens when there’s no Wall! (John Wall did not play). Also helped that the Wizards played the Hawks, the natural elixir for fantasy.

Thomas Bryant

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 9 1 1 1 0 1/2 5/8 5/5

Got the start but only played 21 minutes. I’m happy to see Bryant doing well, as I appreciated his effort when he was a member of the Lakers. He’s young (21 years old) and moves well for a man his size (6′ 11″, 248 pounds). With Dwight Howard indefinitely out, I hope Bryant gets significant run, as I’d like to see what he can do.

Austin Rivers

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
9 7 7 0 0 2 1/5 3/12 2/2

Got the start due to John Wall being out. When I saw the 7 assists, I thought I was reading the wrong player’s line, but then I saw the 3-for-12 shooting.

Bradley Beal

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
36 6 9 1 0 3 2/6 12/22 10/13

It makes me so happy to see Collins healthy and balling the F out. He is so good, and he hasn’t started blocking shots yet.

Kent Bazemore

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 2 6 4 1 2 2/9 8/18 4/4

With Taurean Prince out for three weeks, it was Bazemore who got the start and played 35 minutes. He’s very good when he plays, as he contributes across the board. Gotta figure he gets traded at some point, though.

DeAndre’ Bembry

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

Played 27 minutes. I thought that the Hawks would give Bembry the Prince minutes, but it looks like it’s Bazemore’s role for now. Bembry is athletic, but inconsistent, especially with his shot. Should see an uptick in minutes for as long as Prince is out, but will be behind Bazemore.

Jeremy Lin only played four minutes before leaving the game due to a lower back strain. That could be good news for Bembry.

Jamal Murray

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
31 4 8 1 0 1 2/3 10/25 9/11

Played a team-high 46 minutes in a game that went to OT. Remember in early November when Murray dropped 48 points? Well, the nine games following that eruption, he failed to reach 20 points. These ceiling games happen once in a while, but the consistency is just not there, but we keep holding on…waiting for the next one to satisfy us. The points, rebounds, and assists are all higher than last year’s numbers so far, but the shooting efficiency is way down. Once he straightens that out, top 50 player is not out of the question.

Nikola Vucevic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 15 4 0 0 1 2/4 11/19 0

#7 player for fantasy. None of his numbers look like outliers except for the shooting percentages: 55% from the field and 40% from downtown vs career marks of 50% from the field and 32% from downtown. A downtick in both should be expected, but that would still leave him as a top 20 player.

Evan Fournier

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
26 8 4 0 1 2 6/10 8/15 4/4

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a game like this from Fournier. Early in the season, the usage rate was around 25. Over the past few weeks, that number had plummeted to 20. Hopefully, last night’s game signifies a return to the early success he showed.

Jonathan Isaac

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

Rudy Gay

31 7 2 2 0 3 2/5 12/21 5/5

Played 35 minutes. When he plays and gets minutes, Gay is a top 75 player and looks to be back from the Achilles injury. Unfortunately, the minutes and playing time are all over the map. The last seven games have gone like this: 35, 19, 35, 25, 19, 17, and 31 minutes.

DeMar DeRozan

Brandon Ingram only played five minutes due to an ankle injury. Josh Hart and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should see an uptick in playing time.

Played 28 minutes (season-high while on the Lakers), while JaVale McGee played 19 minutes. Color me intrigued, as his defense has been very good. In terms of plus/minus, McGee was a negative 21, while Chandler was a positive 27. If you’re hurting for a center, I’d take a look at Chandler.

LeBron James

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
42 5 6 2 0 2 3/7 15/24 9/13

Played 40 minutes. #13 player for fantasy, as the low free throw percentage and elevated turnover rate knock him down a bit. With that said, 32+ usage rate, 52% field goal percentage, 28.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 2.2 threeecolas, 1.3 steals, and 0.9 blocks. And I feel like he’s not fully trying yet. LeMazing. LeCredible. LeVelous.

    I currently own D. White and I’m thinking if I should make a move from the WW. The available PG’s are: Okobo, Gallaway, Hill, D. Wright, Satoransky.
    What’s your opinion?
    Thanks!

    Hey buddy what’s good.. Haven’t posted in a while, coz Oladipshit and Gharris are both injured and there really isn’t spectacular going on with my squad but despite those two sucking, I’m still doing well. Thanks to Jrue, Kevin, Rudy and Covington. Gotta include Holmes too, dude killed it last week. So anyway, I’m floating some offers, my Dinwiddie and Allen for Booker and Ayton (Ayton belongs to a different owner). Ayton’s owner is really contemplating with it. Does it seem like I’m fleecing him? I’m giving up blocks, assists and 3s… I don’t know, in my eyes this is a good deal for him. And the only reason why I wanted Ayton is bcos I’m a suns fan. Gotta have him on my squad you know! And also, I picked up Adebayo, I know you ain’t a huge fan of him but I got Dipo coming back from IR so he’s just really more of a speculative add. My squad look now:

    PG1 Holiday
    PG2 Dinwiddie
    SG1 Richardson
    SG2 Harris
    SG3 Mikal Bridges
    SF1 Covington
    SF2 Porter Jr.
    PF1 Durant
    PF2 Isaac
    C1 Gobert
    C2 Allen
    C3 Holmes
    C4 Adebayo
    IR1 Oladipo
    IR2 Cousins

    And I got Isaac too! Thank God his former owner dropped him. I’m just hoping Jrich gets a PG tag soon, so if I do lose Dinwiddie I’d still have a PG behind Jrue.

      Sup my man! Been a while but always good to hear from you. I like acquiring Booker/Ayton. As for fleecing the other owner, everyone values players differently. If he doesn’t like the offer, then he won’t accept it. As for Bam, I’ve always been a fan of his. He’s just blocked from getting significant playing time. Team looks good. I hope Dipo is able to return soon, though.

            @Son: ha! Did I do bad? But seriously, been eyeing Ayton for a while now. It’s either I offer the Brooklyn boys or I give the owner Richardson straight up. We’re going full assist punt on this one. I hope Ayton improves a lot more as the season progresses especially on the defensive end. Here’s to hoping for a 20/11/3/.5/1.5 line to finish the season..

              So yea, To be honest, I gotta say you didn’t do good here.

              The trade analyzer say’s YOU got fleeced, in a pretty big way.

              I liked the original pairing you had of Gobert & Allen (block party)

              Ayton is hitting a minor rookie wall in my opinion.

              I still like Ayton a lot, drafted him myself but traded him away.

              As Son say’s everyone values players differently.

              You need to add a PG now. Your team is still solid.

Yea, I’d rather prefer the other guy getting the better end of the deal, so if the majority think that I indeed was the one that gave up more value then that’s totally fine with me. I’m actually the commissioner of our league and as you know when you’re the commissioner it’s sometimes hard to make deals cos you’re under the watchful eyes of your co-leaguemates. Hah And I forgot to mention, I’m an avid Suns fan and Son knows about it, lol. So landing Ayton is a must for me. And I already also won last season! It’s just me really loosening up and enjoying the year (despite Dipo and Garry’s injuries) but still playing competitive fantasy hoops. I’m gon defend the crown, won’t surrender it to them easily.

                Yea, with regards to pointguards.. Our wire is already pretty thin of those. The Mudiays, Agustins and Forbess are still available but I ain’t a fan of them. I might make a grab on Monte Morris tho, until ESPN decides to finally give Richardson a PG tag. And Barton is still week-to-week, Harris too might miss weeks of action so Monte has short term appeal…

              Naw, you good. I wanted both Ayton and Booker though. I’m not sure Ayton improves that much on the defensive end. He will learn some, but I think he is what he is. Playing D is about awareness and desire. I worry about the desire part

                @Son: hah! Yea, just really wanted to land Ayton. Thanks bud.. Maybe a block from him a game will help, but I got other guys that can contribute to that so I think I’d be fine. Would you drop Bridges for Oubre? I’m starting to think that Mikal won’t shoot well this season and I can’t have someone that destroys my FG. What do you think bud, thanks

    Who would you rather own? Kelly Oubre or Cedi Osman? Asking retrospectively because i passed on oubre and grabbed osman and seeing if i made the right move lol

    • Son

      Son says:

      Osman

    Hi Son,

    I have Osman, and could have dropped for Oubre but I didn’t and now oubre is picked up. Just a retrospective question. Did I make the right move? Oubre seems just as inconsistent as Osman with less playing time. I am not sure who has the higher upside.

    What are you expecting from Osman ROS btw?

    Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:

      I like Osman more. He can contribute across the board. The issue with him is the efficiency, which I think will improve as the season progresses

    Hey Son!

    I’m intrigued by both Mudiay and Bazemore but I’m really not sure that I have room for either (1st place problems…thank you for helping me draft this team, by the way!). What do you think? Maybe over Smart?

    would you trade your Aminu and Valanciunas for Draymond green? I doubt the owner buys but worth a shot.

    Forwards: Kyle Anderson, Middleton, Aminu, lamb,

    Bigs: Turner, Gobert, Mitch Robinson, Anthony Davis, Valanciunas, Cody Zeller
