When people visit Los Angeles, they often go to the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is centered on the intersection and it has a rich history in the entertainment industry. And entertainment is what Zach LaVine has been delivering for the hoops world and has many, especially our own Brent, clammoring that he is in fact an All-Star. I wonder which poster of LaVine that Brent is jerking off to right now.

That now makes four straight games scoring at least 30 points. Before we put him in the Hall of Fame, he doesn’t even appear on the page when I query streaks with at least 30 points. For you inquiring minds, the leader is Kobe Bryant with 16 straight games back in 2003. As for the query itself, it stopped at 5 games. So, one more Zach and you’re on. Anyways, there’s no denying that Zach looks explosive and far removed from his knee injury. With that said, he’s shooting 62% from the field and 45% from downtown. His career rates are 44% and 37% respectively. The efficiency is going to come down. It’s just a matter of how much. Around 3 boards and 3 dimes are nice, but he doesn’t contribute much in the D department, so when the efficiency comes down, it’s….well, imagine you’re walking and you come to a ledge. It’s pitch black so you drop a coin down to see how low it goes. You drop it and you listen. And listen. And listen.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Joe Harris

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 6 2 1 0 2 4/5 6/9 0

Not your Average Joe, Harris has been scorching hot to start the season, as he’s scored in double-digits in each of the first four games and is shooting 51% from the field and 53% from downtown. He doesn’t provide the D, but has been pulling down 4 boards and dishing out 3 dimes a game. Now, there were a few games in which he was receiving over 30 minutes of run, but that number will come down, as Allen Crabbe and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson return to the rotation. With that said, he should continue to see high-20s in minutes and deserves to hang onto his starting role…for now. Just know that the efficiency will come down at some point.

When Michael Jordan left the Bulls in 1993, the team went 55-27 without him. When LeBron James left the Cavs in 2010, the team went 19-63 without him. Now, the Cavs are 0-4 and a bastion of futility. This should help pad Love’s rebounding numbers, as there will be plenty of bricks to collect, but it could also affect his playing time due to getting blown out. Played 29 minutes.

Cedi Osman

Even though he only played 24 minutes last night, I’m not as worried about Cedi’s minutes. He’s 23 years old and the Cavs are going to want to give him run and let him develop. Can score and will contribute in rebounds, assists, and steals with a couple threeecolas.

      Otto, Zo, and Gay

        @Son: Thanks Son, where would you rank otto right now? He seems to be underperforming compare to 2nd round value he had during pre-season ranking..

        • Son

          Son says:

          Think Otto will be fine. It’s a marathon not a sprint

    Son!

    I actually didn’t even stream Okogie. lol. If I were chasing boards & steals I would have, but I needed assist mostly.

    Ended up going with CoJo and was pleasantly surprised. Looking like he might have a shot to supplant Collison. You think he would be a must-own at that point?

    Thanks, Homie!

      Not sure about must own, but like I wrote in the piece, he’d be the guy I’d own if speculating on the Indiana point guard position

    First thing first, it’s easy to tell you put a ton of work into this article daily and I just wanna say I really appreciate the effort!

    Looking for a couple streamers tonight buddy, low on blocks (like you called!) Would be picking up Collins and Grant for tonight’s games, and stream their spots again tomorrow….. but who do I drop?

    After Monk’s (not Mack…) last 2 games, would you consider him a hold or a streamer in 10man leagues? On the other hand, Rose has had a few strong games, should I continue to stream his spot or hold?

    Team as follows (10 man, unlimited moves (daily))

    PG: Mike Conley
    SG: Oladipo
    G: Josh Hart
    SF: Otto Porter Jr.
    PF: Kevin Love
    F: Mirotic
    C: Jokic
    UTIL: Jonathan Isaac
    UTIL: Lou Will
    UTIL: JJ Redick
    BN: Trey Young
    BN: Rose
    BN: MONK
    INJ: Barton

    Thanks again!

      @Wutang: Thanks! Wutang is for the people!!!!

      I’d use Monk’s spot to stream. That’s it. I’m keeping Rose for now

        @Son: Sounds good to me, thanks for the advice!

    Hi son,
    10 man 9 cat league. What do you think of this trade?
    Gay and Lonzo for Otto and lyles

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Prefer the Gay/Zo side

      • Dane says:
        (link)

        @Son: Thanks Son, How about a Gay/Zo for Otto/Hart?
        How’d you rank that trade and affect each cat? 🙂

        • Son

          Son says:

          I’m on my phone right now, so it’s a pain in the ass to do, but this is why I have the Team Assesor. You can find it in one of the tabs at the Razzball hoops page. Just make 2 copies and enter the players you want to compare. You will be able to see how you’d stack up in each cat.

  8. Big-D says:

    drop Crabbe for Cameron Payne or nah?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Big-D: Yeah

      • BigD says:
        (link)

        @Son: hmm what about dropping Kyle Anderson for Payne on a different squad?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @BigD: It’s like asking me to choose between poking my right eye with a pencil or hammering my left ball with a hammer.

          I fittingly choose Payne

    Hey Son,

    Thanks for replying the other day to my question about trading collison for Harrison barnes. I had cold feet and I turned down his offer. This was before last night’s game. Maybe he’ll still consider?

    I have another trade question for you. Would you trade your Rubio and Jeremy Lamb for Jrue holiday?

    Standard 9-cat H2h 12 team w/ extra bench spot

    G: Teague, lamb, Dinwiddie, Rubio, Beverley, Collison
    F: Middleton, Ariza, Kyle Anderson, Aminu
    C: Anthony davis, Gobert, Valanciunas.

    I appreciate your 2 cents!

    • Son

      Son says:

      Didn’t I say I preferred Barnes over Collison? Well, if I didn’t, I’m not a fan of Collison.

      I would trade Rubio and Lamb for Jrue

      I wouldn’t. Instead, you have an excess in blocks and you’re weakest in 3s. I’d trade off some of your blocks

  12. stevie says:

    who wins this trade? Love and T. Evans for Draymond and J. Murray

    • Son

      Son says:

      I like the Dray/Murray side better

  13. I just wanna Kawhi says:

    So yesterday I went ahead and dropped SGA for Ish…..

    • I just wanna Kawhi says:
      (link)

      @I just wanna Kawhi:

      Sexton, Payne are also on the wire…. But I like what Ish provided for me tonight… And he’s been closing out games with Reggie, too… What are your thoughts man? (rest of season outlook is always the focus)

      • Son

        Son says:
        (link)

        @I just wanna Kawhi: He’s getting minutes and playing alongside Jackson. I think he’s fine and would rather have him than Sexton or Payne

        • I just wanna Kawhi says:
          (link)

          @Son:

          Hah! New coach, new system. Maybe Casey will utilize him well unlike Svg..Let’s hope that is the case! Thanks man uve been the best!

          • Son

            Son says:
            (link)

            @I just wanna Kawhi: Did I die or something ? I’m still here. Ha! Just playing. Thanks man! But I’d say you’ve been/are the best

  14. Ringer says:

    Would you trade Teague+Isaac for Draymond Green+Eric Gordon in a standard 9 cat league?

    Isaac has started to show us why we all loved him so much so I’m worried to move him.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Depends on your squad, but in a vacuum, I wouldn’t have a problem with it. With that said, I’m all for acquiring the best player, which is Green (who is only available because he’s struggling).
