Like Radiohead’s Kid A album, we need to start off this morning with a reminder that even ThrAGNOFs can get Everything In Its Right Place treatment.  Often ridiculed, thrown garbage at, excommunicated like lepers, they pretty much mope around like they’re listening to Radiohead…  Even ThrAGNOFs are people too!

Just look at our conversation during the Pod yesterday.  Slim hates on Mirza being a ThrAGNOF, I say he’s the only real consistent PF, and Slim has to begrudgingly agree.  We say “Threes ain’t got no face” not because they have no existential meaning and are The Plague on Camus’s fantasy team, but because a player that hit 3s/scores/low TO are often overrated by the metrics.  Last night, Mirza went 30/11/1/0/0, hitting 12-23 FG with 5 treys against his former Nets.  Now, he didn’t have the normal low TO (4), but he grabs more boards than your typical wing ThrAGNOF, and brings it at an out-of-position PF spot.  In the 4 games since the deadline, ThrAGNOFovic is 20.5/7.3/1.5 with 3.5 treys a game.  He’s owned in all of my RCLs, but he’s still only 39% owned across the Yahoo-verse and still available in several leagues.  Of course if you don’t need scoring and 3s, you’re not missing on too much, and his production is easily replaceable if he gets cold.  But while hot, you gotta ride your ThrAGNOFs!  Here’s what else went down in fantasy hoops action last night:

Stephen Curry Shocker!  He’s hit a 3 for a lot of games in a row.  Wow.  That’s like saying Scott Skiles broke the record for most variant player rotations in a row…  Not only did Steph hit one 3 to break Kyle Korver‘s record of consecutive games with treys, but he hit 10 of em!  20-27 FG including 10-15 3PTM for 51 Pts to continue this absurdity.

Klay Thompson A popular 30-pt challenge pick, Klay scored only 9.  The best thing he can do for his team most of the time is just watch Steph’s shot go in.

Evan Fournier It’s been a bumpy ride from mid-round value, to barely ownable, to cuttable, and now back to mid-round value.  20+ Pts in 3 straight and 4 outta 5, really benefiting from no Tobias.  32+ minutes the past 8 is the most encouraging stat though, factoring in a Tobias kankle then the trade.  Just gotta hope no SKIIIIIIIIILES!

Elfrid Payton I’ve heard that the copyright owners of “musical chairs” are about to change the popular kid’s party game to “the Skiles Shuffle.”  “Now you sit on the bench, now this time YOU sit on the bench, YOU GET A CAR YOU GET A CAR YOU GET A CAR!”  Skiles is the Oprah of annoying playing time.  This time at PG is was Elfrid who got the most run, going 12/2/6 in 29 minutes.  It’s still not enough for me to steadfastly own in 10ers.

Jabari Parker 22 Pts last night and now 20+ in 3 of 4.  He’s not doing enough anywhere else to get me overly excited, but could help Pts/Reb needs on the right builds.

Khris Middleton The Duchess has been struggling, hitting 50% of his shots only once in the past 11 before last night, but went 21/5/6/3/0 on 8-15 shooting vs. the C’s.  Figure out what your placeholder coach did to make him so nasty, Kidd!

Amir Johnson Has been pretty flaccid lately, but the Johnson showed up strong last night, going 15/8/2/1/1 with no TO in 25 minutes.  He did only hit 1-4 FT, and this is comparable to his best line or two since mid-January.  There goes my erection.

Anthony Davis What, what, what?!  The Pelicans beat the Thunder last night?!?!?!  30/6/2/1/4 from the Brow, hitting another couple of treys.  Mannnnn, with the treys it’s gonna be tough to keep him outside my top-3 next year.  Brow vs. Beard…  Too much facial hair!

Ryan Anderson 26 Pts, 2 treys, 6 Reb.  Wait, what is so different with his numbers than ThrAGNOFovic’s?!

Norris Cole – People have been jumping off the cliff of his flattop and rightfully so with Eric Gordon nearing a return, but a big bounceback from some fading numbers going 21/6/8 last night.

Russell Westbrook/Kevin Durant Not for lack of trying, both MVP-caliber guys had MVP-caliber fantasy lines.  I don’t feel like I need to write the numbers out, THERE’s your lack of trying!

Archie Goodwin – Well, that soured pretty quick.  More like Archie Goodloss!  Except they haven’t even been good losses there in PHO…  Archie Badloss!  18 minutes and didn’t score, shooting 0-3 FG and 0-2 FT.  Ouch.

Ronnie Price – Started hot, and got rewarded with 38 minutes of PT.  It almost helped the Suns beat a depleted Nets team!  Yay!  16/0/3/4/1 with a couple of treys, but I’m still only investing in pretty deep leagues.  The Suns PG are also abiding by the Skiles Shuffle.

Tyson Chandler Gets to keep starting because of THE DOLLAR BILLZ YO!  12/11/1/2/1 in 33 minutes, pushing Alex Len to only 17 mins off the bench.  Pays to be a veteran on the first year of a 4-yr deal, amiright?!  I’d still hold Len where I could and the hatred of Tyson C has gone too far.  He’s not a must-own or anything in a 12er, but he’s a temporary Band Aid if you need some help up front.

Joe Johnson – Waived so he can be bought out.  A little irony it was right before a game against the Suns!  Bojan Bogdanovic got the start at the 3, and got hot for 24 Pts and 3 treys on 8-16 shooting.  Literally does nothing else except 2 boards and 4 TO.  Blah.

Thaddeus Young For the love of multi-cat!  Gets a huge 1.5 rainbow, going 18/8/3/7/3 on 8-11 FG with only 1 TO.  He’s been an absolute revelation ever since the Nets finally realized they should start Thad the Impaler after trading for him.  I don’t get how NBA teams can make such bad starting decisions…

Markel Brown – The Nets starting SG spot continues to be a black hole, with Wayne Ellington shooting 3-10 of blah at the starting 2 and Brown playing well off the bench for 16/3/1 with a couple treys and 6-8 FT.  I refuse to buy into that position even in the 20-team REL.  It’s the Bermuda Triangle of fantasy situations.

Donald Sloan I guess 13/9/6 for a guy not owned in 12ers deserves a shout out, but it was in only 24 minutes.  Sure I could spin it as “he did that in only 24 minutes!” but the mins are going to keep getting split with Shane Larkin no matter what, since the Nets are the Bermuda Triangle of NBA franchises.

Portland Trailchokers – Yikkkkkkes, dat 4th quarter doe!  After leading almost the whole game, Portland got trounced in the second half, and murdered 33-12 in the 4th.  A 22:21 AST:TO ratio isn’t gonna get it done!  I blame this loss solely on C.J. McCollum, because well, I CAN!  20/5/4/0/0 with 4 TO shooting 9-19 FG.  I guess that’s fine…  Damian Lillard shot 6-20 but at least held a 7:1 AST:TO.

Moe Harkless Well, an investment in virtually any league is now a sunk cost…  11/1/1/0/1, but 3 TO and moved to the bench for Noah Vonleh.  Vonleh didn’t play a ton with the starting 5 (13 mins), but it’s enough to turn Moe back into Moe Schmo.

James Harden Fear the Beard!  46/5/8, and ranking Brow ahead of him is gonna be sooooo hard.  Wait, didn’t I say it the other way up top?!  TOO MUCH FACIAL HAIR!

Dwight Howard Rainbow alert!  Despite all the continual drama, DNPs, and otherwise unsavoriness, he’s had a nice bounceback season.  19/13/2/2/3 last night, but of course trounces your FT for 3-12.  Hey, if you know what you get, you can prepare for it!  That was the line that ended up getting edited out of Forrest Gump.

Trevor Ariza 6/8/6/5/0, and his numbers are virtually identical to last year’s.  I just think the trip game-to-game to get to 12.5 Pts, 2.3 treys and 2.1 Stl can be so rocky, he gets frustrating.  He’s at a career-high in takeaways too!  Hopefully you held strong through some troughs.

Kawhi Leonard I love him.  Sits 3 games last week due to his calf, but the Spurs let him loose on a b2b, going 10-15 FG last night for 29/5/3/3/0 with no TO and 3 treys with 6-6 FT.  Reciting his stats always comes out as a run on sentence!

Tim Duncan – Even in an 18 point win, Pop stuck with some starting 5 cohesion and Timmay played 32 minutes.  14/11/2/1/1.  If he was dropped, feel free to spec add, but don’t lock him in your shallow league line-ups.

Derrick Favors Really your only Ute to show up, going 25/6/3/2/0.  But WHERE’S THE BEEF?!  No blocks?!?!?!

Shelvin Mack Pretty boring 8/3/3/2/0, but 28 minutes with the starters and a strong hold in 12ers.  Still feel like he was a pretty neato add!

 

I hope everyone is locking it down during the playoff push, and getting ramped up for the final few weeks of the fantasy regular season!  Thanks for dropping by Razzball Nation, and have a great weekend!

    Do I drop Joe Johnson or Goodwin or both for Barnes? Also, Thraggy Mirza is on the wire along with How could you be Moe Harklesss.

  2. dom says:

    always love your write ups!

    for tomorrow/beyond (AST and STL important this week) Ronnie Price (MEM), Toney Douglas (MIN), or Larkin (@UTA) ? I’d drop Archie Goodwin or Shaun Livingston

      @dom: Thanks so much! I actually just streamed Price in a lot of leagues. Hoping for the best in not the best matchup, but he’s the only one who could get 30+ mins, and well beyond that is

    What are your thoughts on Rodney Hood in a dynasty league? We get to keep 5, and I’m considering trading my Monroe + Bazemore to get Hood + Dieng.

    • Poisonous Stuff says:
      (link)

      @Poisonous Stuff: My keepers would be Harden, Porzingis, Kemba, Dipo, Hood/Monroe

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Poisonous Stuff: I like Hood, I dunno if he ever gets to say, where Middleton is, but maybe top-75ish? I lovvvvvve Dieng at that price though, I like it!

        • Jensen says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: If Hayward ever leaves, Hood would pass Middleton I think. I actually think he is a better player than Gordon.

  5. Hi. Espn standard 8 cat league.
    9 team league with 13 man rosters

    In my head to head weekly league can you tell me which guy is the better player to own.

    Danny green (currently own) , crowder, Barnes or teletovic.

    My roster.
    Oladipo. Harden. Batum. Gallo. Cousins.
    Derozan. Rondo. Gay. Turner. Aaron Gordon
    Danny green. Ariza. McCollum. Butler on IR

    thanks for the advice

    • JB Gilpin

      @Derrick Yu: Whaaaaaaaa definitely Crowder! By miles, miles miles miles and miles 🙂

  6. Chris says:

    Please tell me I didn’t ruin my season, in a fit to get out of 6th place and launch myself into serious contention for a deep playoff run in a H2H 12 team 9 cat league I traded Kawhi 🙁 and Deron Williams for D.Rose, derozan and Love… Just seemed too tasty to pass up. Was this the wrong move? I have a pretty well rounded team but wanted to get up in pts and such

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: It’s not ruining at all. 12 team, I think Kawhi is by far the best in deal so I think I woulda held, that said, DNPs could be coming in your playoffs and you did add a ton of pts. As long as you can handle a few more TO and the big hit that took on FG% you should be fine!

    Hey JB!

    I’m not a basketball fantasy guy, but yesterday I asked Grey and he asked me to ask you. Thought this would be a good place to do that…

    So… When are your juicy amazing pitcher rankings coming out? You’ve got a great eye for arms so I’ve been looking forward to it!

    Thanks,

    Big W

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Big W: We need to get ya over here on hoops, try out an RCL next year! It’s like baseball, but better highlights 🙂

      Thanks so much for that man! I’m almost done, will take me the weekend to wrap up, then publishing early next week, so right around the corner now!

      • Big W says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Sweet man! Can’t wait! Well I can wait, but you know what I mean, haha… Love your pitcher profiles too! You helped me get ahead of the curve with Harvey, Kluber, Shane Greene (haha, kidding).

        I’ve always wanted to do a basketball pool, but none of my friends are interested in trying it out. I guess I could try an RCL next season…we’ll see! I also do Football and Hockey so it’s tough balancing things. Married with three kids so I can’t push it, haha!

        Have a good weekend buddy!

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Big W: Hahahaha, yeahhhhh the Greene one hurt, in my defense, he pitched a lot of last year after his strong start not being able to feel his hand due to a blood flow thing. Ranks are done! Just gotta edit and put the post together.

          Ha I hear ya man! Fantasy is year-round for me only with hoops and baseball. Once baseball is winding down it’s hoops rankings work!

    Hey Jb!

    I’ve got dipo, knight, wall and hill for PG’s

    In a vacuum would you do knight or dipo for brolo in 8 cat dynasty?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yo! Whewwwww, both are TO prone and soooo much younger. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but hold unless you’re in dire need of big man help and looking like you might win this yr

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Yeah I’ve got Blake and Knight so I theoretically could win this year but more likely need to throw in the towel. Oh and it’s 8cat so TO won’t affect haha. But thanks! This definitely helps!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Nick: No no I know, I meant that as a good thing, in that they’re better in 8cat than standard perception 🙂 Sounds like a hold is the way to go

  9. That Feetwork says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    Great read as always!

    What are your thoughts on Blake Griffin ROS?

    There are rumors that he won’t be back until a couple of weeks before the playoffs which lines up with the start of the second round of fantasy playoffs for me. I’ve already clinched top seed, but it’d be pretty tough to win my first round of fantasy playoffs (which start in two weeks) with no IR spot and essentially 12 players out of 13. With fringe players like Danny Green, Aaron Gordon, Wesley Matthews, and Myles Turner, I might be reluctant to stream that spot if they are all killing it during that time.

    I picked up Griffin when I clinched the top seed because his production is too tempting, but should I drop him and just hope that I don’t regret it?

    Thanks in advance!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @That Feetwork: Thanks man! Yeah I’m not holding Blake unless cruising in first place or I have IL spot. Yeah with playoffs starting that soon in your format (guessing no bye week), I’m not investing there either. But if you have him ostensibly for free right now, I might hold until right when your playoff matchup starts to see if there’s any further updates. Won’t cost you to hold until then

  11. Ryan says:
    (link)

    SKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILES! The mere mention of that name is enough to drive me to the brink of insanity. If anyone has ever watched DBZ growing up, the effect the name Skiles has on me is akin to Broly hearing the name Kakarot.

    Seriously, I own Vuc, Gordon, and Elfrid in one league. On any given night Skiles can completely fck up my week by deciding to bench all three. I’m definitely looking to move on from Elfrid, and don’t plan on drafting any ORL player besides Vuc and Gordon unless they don’t fall at least a round below their projected values next season. The frustration isn’t worth it!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Ryan: Hahaha, I know right?! Hah that reference went wayyyyy over my head, I didn’t watch any of the Z.

      Agree there, only Magic guy I’ll rank favorably next year is Gordon. Talent won out and he got the mins this year, hopefully it wins out and its stable all next yr!

  14. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    So I looked up Favors’ stats (because he’s somewhat on a tear) and compared it to previous years. I didn’t know he’s putting up career highs in three categories this season: PTS, STLS, FT. Lol I still don’t like him for pretty much screwing up my season, but hey, I must give credit where credit is due. Haha

    I dropped Len for Winslow the other day right after I learned that the former, once again sprained his ankle. And I was rewarded with boards and d-stats by Justise. However, just when he’s getting comfortable with his role, and Dragic has somewhat turned the corner, MIA then decides to bring in JoeJohnson… For Christ’s sake, WHY?!?!! Haha Anyway, I’m just wondering when’s Joe going to play? Bcoz I’m planning to pick Len back up, and dropping Winslow in the process.

    I’ve calmed down from Ariza and Lillard’s awful shooting. Lol I’m giving them a pass, they’ve been tearing it up for me before that awful game. Hah

    • Dante Green says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green:

      Should I seriously just drop Korver?

    • Dante Green says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green:

      I dropped Winslow for Len, and I’m planning to make a grab for either Clee or JeramiG. Are these two worth a grab (especially if Noel misses time with an apparent leg injury)? My droppables are Aminu and Korver.

      *Got Len and Bazemore too but I’m planning to keep those guys

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dante Green: Yeah those cats all make sense, especially steals, early on he was leading the league in STL! Yup, glad you went back to Len, awesome game yesterday! Ummmm sure yeah I have no issue taking the flier on Jerami if you need a big over Korver!

    hey JB! what do you think of my Lillard and Mirza for his Harden? Wondering if I can capitalize on Mirza’s hot streak to get a stud like Harden and I’m pretty heavy on assists right now

    (link)

    Hey, now I Know you’re not a fan of cj, but would you trade Rubio and all Jeff for him (the latter is currently stuck on my IL, I need to clear some room). I’m pretty solid in assists and steals.

    • Miles Proudfoot says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: also, comfortably in second which would afford me a bye, don’t think i’ll be able to catch the first place team. no IL spot. drop kcp or otto porter for blake griffin? yahoo just said ideally he’ll back 3/15, second round of playoffs is 3/21. thanks!

      • Miles Proudfoot says:
        (link)

        @Miles Proudfoot: these two questions are about different leagues, hence the IL spot in one but not the other.

          @Miles Proudfoot: Ummm, yeah if your AST are stacked, I’m all for getting CJ there.

          With the bye week and virtually no chance out of it, I’m OK with that stash. Prob losing Porter

  17. CTMN says:
    (link)

    Yo JB, great stuff! Quick question: In our REL-style dynasty league, would you trade Otto Porter ($5) and Shelvin Mack ($1) for Harrison Barnes ($3) and Zach LaVine ($4). I’m leaning yes, especially since Barnes might leave Golden State this summer to get PAID. I feel like Mack almost definitely won’t sustain anything close to this next season, assuming Exum is back. Thanks in advance!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @CTMN: Thanks man! Def YESSSSSS! The kicker for me though is that LaVine value. Still tapping into his youthful upside

      • CTMN says:
        (link)

        @Slim: @JB Gilpin: Thanks guys, I went ahead and did it!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @CTMN: LaVine vs Porter is at least a push. Barnes isn’t great but certainly more upside than Mack. I’m not sure you even lose anything this year.

      • CTMN says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: @Slim: Now I got offered Boogie ($62) for Barnes. I’m in 5th place, with a good chance of making the playoffs, but I already have Wall at $64, Ibaka at $41, Noel at $36…but I’m not sure if any of those are keepers anyway. Thoughts?

        • CTMN says:
          (link)

          @CTMN: He ended up trading Boogie for Jarrett Jack and Joel Embiid before I could give Barnes…not sure why.

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Slim: @CTMN: Meh, I see more for LaVine. Porter really cooled off lately and has a lot of injury issues with that hip, plus he’s a few years older.

            Whoa, def take Boogie! I don’t think Barnes is sexy enough as a cheap keeper to turn that down. Yuck, damn that sucks he took that one!

        @Tyler: With Wright going down Jamychal gets another shot at more minutes. I’d rank them… Lance (yeah I know), JaMychal, Hollis (at least he’s playing), Burks, Arthur, Hairston, Anderson, Rich, Hump.

    Hey would you drop Gallo for Blake Griffin ? I don’t like Griffin for my team build really, but don’t want someone else to get him. I am comfortably in 1st place with 2 more regular season weeks to go. Or do you think gallo is back in 3 weeks? I’m afraid to wait until MRI gets back and someone else sees Griffin target return date.

      @Kendrick Twerkins: You can go either way… I’m scared to death of Gallo’s injury and if I were a betting man I’d say it’s a high ankle and he gets shut down for ROS. I’d rather gamble on Blake.

      @Kendrick Twerkins: Tough one… Ugh it’s so hard to try to predict injury timetables! I’d prob hold Gallo, but it’s a toss up for sure, I would guess he’s back a few games before Griffin

      • Kendrick Twerkins says:

        @JB Gilpin: If that’s the case that would be perfect cause I’m def looking at a bye the week of the 15th when griffin is set to be back. And someone literally picked him up like 30 mins after I posted this haha

          @Slim: @Kendrick Twerkins: Yeah I remember this comment when i saw the Gallo timetable. It’s still a coin flip for me

    What do you think of David lees 14 point 14 rebound game? Fluke or possible resurgence?

      @GoodGuy: Fluke. 15-20 min moving forward. 10/6 with nothing else.

        @GoodGuy: @Slim: Fluke for me as well, Zaza played only 8 minutes. I doubt Lee out-minutes Zaza that often

    Whats up Slim and JB, I haven’t been here to ask for advices for a while.
    Everything is going smooth as I approach towards the playoff, I hold strong the 3rd place in my league just barely behind the 1st/2nd.

    I have great squad and recently snapped Eric Gordon of the waiver wire to lay him in the INJ spot, I also got my hands on the hot Alex Len.
    Now that Gordon is back healthy I need to waive a player, so my options are this:
    Waive Alex Len/JR Smith/Eric Gordon.
    Trade Rodney Hood and Eric Gordon for Kemba Walker.

    What would you do?
    Thanks ahead.

        @Nishinga: I like the consolidating and getting Kemba. JR vs Gordon is close… I’d hold Len of the 3.

          @Nishinga: @Slim: What’s up man, welcome back!

          Yeah if you could get Kemba for that price, that’s my clear #1. If you had to drop someone, probably Smith, but he and Gordon as so close

          • Nishinga says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Would you trade Alex Len and Eric Gordon for Kemba as well?

    Hey JB,
    I’m pretty keen to pick up big Len from the wire in my 12 team 10-cat (TO and DDs) because how can he be left out of a roster; but not sure who to drop/if i should drop any of my guys? some of ya sage advice about who I should drop/or if I even need him would be great so I can stay in my number 1 spot!
    My team atm is:
    Wall
    Drummond
    Batum
    CJ McCollum
    Monroe
    Parsons
    Gortat
    Rubio
    JV
    Crowder
    Hood
    and nabbed Eric Gordon in time for him to go off in his return

    Cheers mate!

      @Dally: JV vs Len is razor thin for me but with Len’s injury woes I’d just stick with what you’ve got.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dally: @Slim: I think one more big helps ya, I would nab Len for Eric Gordon

          Slim says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: I don’t know… 12 man roster and already has 4 guys that don’t shoot 3s plus Rubio. I think 3s helps more than the boards.

          • Dally says:
            (link)

            @Slim: Cheers boys, love the feedback!
            JV has been a bit frustrating lately so I am seriously tempted to drop him for Len. Do you think JV will see an uptick in minutes or will they keep on pulling him out?

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Slim: @Dally: Well I had missed Gordon’s game, so yeah I’m fine holding now. Wow JV vs. Len… It’s a debate! Problem with Len is consistency too… I think I’d do the gamble though

    I have an offer of Fournier for my Ellis. ORL has a great playoff schedule. I saw Hezonja took a lot of Evans minutes last game. Thoughts?

      @Jake: I think you gotta hold Ellis there, no way I could trust Skiles/Fournier enough haha

    Hey Jb!

    First of all, I want to say thanks so much for replying all the time, it’s pretty awesome! You’re my number 1 guy to go to when I need fantasy advice for trades.

    8 Cat Dynasty H2H

    So here we go, I haven’t made this offer yet but I really want this guys pick in our dynasty league. I’ve got the number 1 pick already and he has the number 2, problem is that it’s a lottery draft and I only have the best chances for the number 1 pick so it’s not a guarantee. More to the point the last place guy hasn’t gotten the number 1 pick in the last 2 years.

    Anyways I digress, I would LOVE to have both Simmons and Ingram and would be ok with having either one. The guys I’d be trading with wants to make a big deal with the pick in play and has asked for a deal around Griffin where I would get Faried and Carmelo and swap the 2nd pick, with what will likely be the 5th pick (I also own). I wasn’t interested because Griffin is my only good PF/C and that position is getting scares (have you noticed that? Where’d they all go?!)

    Since Simmons and Ingram will likely be SF/PF’s I was thinking of selling Draymond and Hill for Carmelo and Bledsoe and then the pick swap. He’s not a very bright manager and LOVES Draymond..as do I obviously he’s magical! Haha. But I figured I’d get at least one of the top guys in the draft and could sell Carmelo or Bledsoe next season for another good PF/C

    After all of that info, (thanks for reading all) what do you think of that trade in dynasty?

    Draymond + Hill for Melo + Bledsoe and a pick swap?

      @Nick: You’re welcome man, what we do! Appreciate that!

      Hah yeah consistent big man play has been tougher, then again we got some younguns to help fill it out – KAT and Zinger for example.

      Hah yeah Dray is awesome, but geez that would be a haul! Especially if Bledsoe can stay healthy. I like that deal a lot, the upgrade at PG is huge.
