The Lakers Win, The Lakers Win!  Down Goes Frazier!  Titanic Sinks!  All usable newspaper headlines for rare events.

The Purp & Gold surprised the Left-Facing Pacmen last night, as the Lakers are now an undefeated team when Nick Young plays!  Just oh so Swaggy… 28 minutes off the bench notching a really solid line, shooting 6-10 (2-4 3PTM 3-5 FT) for 17/5/0/1/0.  Swaggy bein’ ThrAGNOFfy!  It’s hard to imagine him getting to 18 points and 14 shots a game like last year with Mamba ultra-hot doggin’ it (nice one JashFath!), but looked pretty good out there.  I’m a little biased since I’m not a big Young fan – not enough of a contributor in any stats except contested fadeaway shots – but worth some 3PTM streaming while the gettin’ is good!  The Lakers will need his O to keep pressure off Bryant, and Wesley Johnson had an uber-schlubby 32 minutes of nothingball starting at SF.  Young will probably continue to come off the bench, but that shouldn’t deter you from some 12-team streaming.  Here’s what else went down last night in NBA action:

Jeremy Lin Buy up some Doritos and cue up the Game of Thrones, Jeremy’s bringing a dimebag to the party!  15/3/10/2/0 shooting an extremely squeaky clean 6-7 (1-2 3PTM 2-3 FT).  Looked nice and spry out there.  He may have driven you a little Linsane, but other than two rough games against the Warriors, he’s been solid in the last 7 of 9.  That pesky Curry!

Guess the Kobe Stat Line – Whoa, a record first!  m1chael gets some well deserved props for hitting his Kobe slash line perfectly with his 28/4/3 prediction.  Clean sweep!  Well done m1chael, you are awarded the prestigious award of everyone’s jealousy and ire in Razzball Nation.  Priceless prize!  Kobe was remarkably efficient for once, shooting 10-18 (3-7 3PTM 5-5 FT).  No more ultra-hot dogs for you!  I lie, I think he goes right back to ultra-hot doggin’ tonight – talking extra chili and slaw – in a tough game at Houston who were just embarrassed by the Grizz.  I see him going cold, give me 25/5/2 on 24 shots.  Let’s see if anyone else can match m1chael’s predictive skills!

Ed Davis Let’s just get this out of the way, Carlos Boozer is terrible.  His jump shot would hit the jumbotron at Cowboy Stadium if they played outdoors, and it just happened to fall when not bringing rain, making 10-14.  A lot of rumors have been swirling around that big Ed could be the big starting PF sooner than later, and even though Boozer’s points were nice, he looked just atrocious on defense.  22 minutes for only 6/7/0/1/0 for Eddie, and another big +/- win going +13 to Boozer’s -4.  Holding Davis in all my leagues I scooped him up.

Paul Millsap The benefactor of Boozer’s awful D.  Twas a swift death for Boozer, and his will listed all his assets to Millsap’s control.  Which isn’t that many assets… Humungo rainbow for Milly, going 29/4/3/4/2 shooting 11-16 (2-4 3PTM 5-8 FT).  All with only 1 TO.  Millsap out stole (4 to 3) and out blocked (2 to 1) the rest of the Hawks as a team last night.  But the bast part is Slim picked Millsap to go for 30, and Slim is still at an 0-fer!  Even though Millsap’s 29 were a league high for last night… Way to miss those 3 freebies, Milly!

Shelvin Mack Another 20 minutes to Dennis Schroder‘s 17.  Mack for 5/1/5/2/0 no TO, Schroder for 5/3/4 and 3 TO.  A little worried Schroder’s minutes, with DeMarre Carroll returning soon as well, are about to be run over by a Mack truck.

Al Horford Efficiency counts for something!  15/8/2/0/0 but shot 7-8 including hitting his only three.  Wanna know who ISN’T efficient?

Pero Antic – It’s the Mexican word for kitty.  4/8/0/0/0 shooting 2-9 including missing all his threes and the crucial one at the end that would’ve tied the game.  Had a wide open look.  Get a wide open look at my fist, because I’m gonna give ya a pounding for taking all of Horford’s boards, Pero!  Pounding in the heterosexual, punching way.  This blurb is me talking myself into a hole.  Ah, not again!

Ersan Ilyasova Ugh, not this six-foot turkey rearing his head!  Relegated to the bench after being terrible, was terrible the first few coming off the pine, then had an explosion last night.  8-10 (3-4 3PTM 1-4 FT – wtf?  Can’t hit those?) for 20/2/1/0/0 in 20 minutes.  Had only scored in double digits once this year, and that was 11 points nearly two weeks ago.  Anyone can get hot in the NBA!  Nothing to see here…

Larry Sanders – … especially as some extra front court minutes opened up since Sanders was a last minute scratch with a bruised thigh.  You kidding me, Colonel?!  I have a shaken up bottle of champagne ready to get you all riled up next time I see you.

Zaza Pachulia Got the start and got 35 minutes, second only to Brandon Knight‘s 36.  14/13/4/2/0 shooting 6-11 for Pizza the Hut, who will tragically eat himself to death once Sanders is back.

Khris Middleton There we go!  A start, 33 minutes, had a lot of rock in his hand… Very encouraged even if the 4-10 (3-5 3PTM 2-2 FT) 13/7/3/0/0 line isn’t the most impressive.  Pretty close to a must-add in 12ers, as he clearly gives the Bucks, yes the 6-5 Bucks, the best chance to win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo You may be thinking, “Here we go again, bring me the Larry Drew voodoo doll!” seeing Giannis’ 18 minutes, but he got 2 fouls in the first minute-and-a-half, and the Bucks then went on a tear.  Kidd sat him until the second half, which actually seemed to be the right move.  13/6/0/0/0, but only 1 TO (although a late inbounds pass was almost stolen that could’ve made this game end tragically) and hit 7-7 FT.

Iman Shumpert Playing better than that flat top!  His hair is amazing, I tend to focus almost solely on it rather than anything else in Knicks games…  21/8/8/3/0 shooting 9-14 and hitting a pair of treys.  Might be the line of the night award!  Be sure he’s owned in your leagues.

Tim Hardaway Jr. – Got hot off the bench for 24 points and three treys.  ThrAGNOF!

Serge Ibaka Sheesh, Thunder fans might be pulling a Plath and sticking their heads in an oven after this one.  Leading for the whole first half, just collapsed and the ice cold Ibaka got sat.  Not reading too much into it, as even with the vastly expanded perimeter game, Serge was shooting 48% before last night.  Still, wish he was back in the mid-50s like his career, but the shots will drop again and this was a flukey game.

Jeremy Lamb Had the very nice line (19/4/4/1/1 with no TO and three treys), but nothing seemed that impressive watching this game.  Of course watching the Thunder as a team just give up in the third quarter was like having to watch Eyes Wide Shut with you mom, so there’s that…

Alec Burks Ridiculous.  I should’ve stuck by my initial big rank of him, but alas I did not and everyone tip your cap to Mr. Slim.  Slimbo Slice is a big Burks guy, and got rewarded with a huge 20/13/3/1/2 line shooting 5-8 (2-3 3PTM 8-9 FT).  I think Shumpert’s “best line of the night” might have lost to this line right hurr!  Honestly looked like the best player on the court against the hapless Thunder.  Boards might be a tad of an aberration with back-to-back dubdubs, and he had 3 steals and 0 blocks the past 8 before last night, but boy was straight ballin’ out there.

Trey Burke – Maybe the corner has been turned!  I dunno… But right now he’s been unstoppable, shooting 7-17 (great for him!) knocking down three treys, for 17/1/9/1/1.  And with yet another game very protective with the ball, only 1 TO, and now his A:TO the past 5 is 41:6.  Jaw, dropped.  I don’t really think he’ a sell-high either, since he’s doing all this with his shot still pretty terrible.  Minor edit to Snoop Dogg(who apparently can edit his own name…)’s lyrics, “Ride it while it’s hotttt!”

Joe Ingles REL bias alert!  Snatched him with FAAB and got a ton of run playing 25 minutes.  5/4/1/3/0 hitting a trey, but for deepers needing steals, coach Quin Snyder has praised the elder Aussie rook, and Hablo Ingles(¿) has 7 steals the past 3 with 2, 2 then 3 last night and playing over 20 minutes in all of them.  If you need some steals-only streams, time to bust out the Gabriel Iglesias and Hable Ingles!

Anthony Davis Ridiculous as always.  28/9/0/2/3.  Another game of no TO and shot 11-19 (6-8 FT).  Fun stats – 3 straight games of no TO scoring 81 points.  Hasn’t shot below 50% since November 1st, taking at least 12 shots in all of them.  Final stat – I own him in zero leagues even though I wanted to ride him into the sunset.

DeMarcus Cousins Almost ridiculous.  He’s a little wild, but not quite all the way out there Davis-style.  24/17/3/0/2 shooting 10-18, but still is a TO-whore.  They’re down from last year, but in 9-cat it’s keeping him from a full top-5 erection.  Just outside; half-mast.  But in 8-cat, Run-DMC might be a little undervalued for the beast he is.

Ben McLemore I wasn’t able to watch this game due to NBA Game Time’s ridiculous blackouts of NBA TV (for the money they charge, I’ma be whiny!), but pretty sure he was benched down the stretch for Omri Caspi and Ray McCallum mixing minutes.  Which is weird since Nik Stauskas played only 19 behind those guys, and the big kicker – Ramon Sessions with a DNP.  Looks like it’s McCallum backing up!  Unless there’s an unreported injury…  Those 5 names there are all pretty scrubby, feel free to move on from McLemore and pay little attention to this backcourt other than Darren Collison.

Gorgui Dieng Choo Choo!  Hop on the Dieng train!  Nikola Pekovic is out at least a week with a sprained wrist.  Pek was dropped in one of my RCLs, and I didn’t even put in a claim…  In 15 games as a starter last year, Gorgui was unreal for 12.2/12.0/1.6/0.9/1.7.  Shot 50% FG and 70.6% FT.  And I feel like I answered Dieng a ton of times as a keep/pickup through these first few weeks.  Early rewards to be reaped!

Steve Blake – Just added him in both my RCLs, and still only 2% owned.  Not huge upside, but C.J. McCollum fractured a finger and will miss about 4 weeks.  Should continue to get solid mid-20s minutes, is at 5+ dimes the past 3, hit a trey in 5 straight, and I think will be a really underrated last roster spot guy for the foreseeable future.

 

Streamers:

Gerald Henderson (4% owned) – He’s not a good basketball player.  “Then why recommend him, JB?!”  Well “logical retort commenter”, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is already ruled out with his foot issue, P.J. Hairston has a kankle, and Gary Neal has a concussion.  Minutes and shots by attrition!  18/5/3/0/0 Monday night in 37 minutes, and should get some solid burn tonight at the Pacers.  Plus Chris Copeland can’t defend to save his life.  This should be a biggie for Hendo.

D.J. Augustin (12% owner) – This is a major gut call, but Brandon Jennings – while hot – hasn’t had his play translate into wins, as DJ is under 20 minutes in 5 of the last 6 (the one time over, only 20:43) and the Pistons are 1-5.  Only win in that stretch?  Against those dejected Thunder…  With Phoenix coming into town, I think this starts turning into a blowout pretty quick, and Stan Van turns to some D.J. at PG FTW, ASAP

 

Be sure and maximize your line-ups tonight in a big Wednesday slate, and we’ll see ya tomorrow!

    Hey guys, been reading your blog for a while now but never posted.
    What’s your thought on dropping Giannis for Shumpert?
    I’m in a 10 man league 10 cats (9 cat plus PF) and love Giannis IRL but think Shumpert might. W the better add.
    Thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Matt: Thanks so much for reading! They’re certainly close, I think I would go with Giannis though, foul trouble last night and Shumpert had an outlier of a great game. Plus Calderon will be back at some point to handle a lot of rock

  2. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Ooohh reaching with that DJ stream haha, but will be interesting to see play out either way. Great write up man – we all hate colonel and turkey man too! Added giannis in my 8 teamer and hoping he can bring some solid stats in tjones empty slot… Wait, there has to be a better way to say that

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Yep. He should be able to fill TJones’ hole.

      I don’t know about DJ tonight. If I had to pick a vastly underowned PG how about Barea? Harris is questionable to play tonight. Hendu is a good one. Maybe a big too… how about Darrell Arthur or Kris Humphries or Pachulia if Sanders is out again.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: @Slim: Those final two are good ones, I have a feeling Sanders plays. Arthur I actually started writing, but forgot Hickson should be back to mudy up the minutes

  3. Mari says:

    Hey JB, do you think Shump maintains his current production for ROS?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Mari: A career 40% shooter shooting 52%. I think that is unsustainable but it looks like he’s the best fit in the triangle offense, so for the most part I’m a believer.

      • Mari says:
        (link)

        @Slim: Shump did have to deal with two lousy coaches in the past, the last one not being particularly fond of him. I do wonder how he’d perform once Calderon returns. Who would you rank higher? Shump or Carroll?

        • Slim

          Slim says:
          (link)

          @Mari: Tough to predict what Calderon will be when he gets going but I have a gut feeling he’s just going to sit back and shoot 3s while Melo and Shump handle the rock. I would take Shumpert over Carroll. Even when fully healthy Carroll is way down the pecking order offensively. I would take Fournier and Middleton over Carroll too. Shumpert vs those 2 is real tough right this second.

  4. Dirk's Digglers says:
    (link)

    22/4/5 on 17 shots

    Monty Williams evidently said post-game he wants AD getting 25 shots per game … if that happens gonna be cray cray

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Dirk’s Digglers: We can hope… let 2 of those shots be 3s and he’ll easily pass KD as basketballs best fantasy player. Damn close in real life too.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Dirk’s Digglers: AD leads the league in points, rebounds and blocks… He’s Wilt Chamberlain!

  5. YOUNGHUSBAND says:

    14 Teams, H2H, 9 cat.

    PG: MCW, IT3, Sloan
    SG: Monta Ellis (PG), Oladipo (PG), KCP
    SF: Kawhi (SG), TJones (PF), McDaniels
    PF: Ibaka (C), Millsap (C), Kieff Morris (C),
    C: Dieng

    I’m looking at a trade for Steph Curry. Ibaka + MCW for Curry is my current deal. Adding McBob/Kaman after the deal. Thoughts? Also, looking to sell high on Kieff, any target cat in particular that you see?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @YOUNGHUSBAND: If the Curry trade happens, which I’m not particularly fond of then you will have a serious lack of shot blocking. If selling Markieff is a goal post Curry trade then blocks would unquestionably be the #1 priority.

      • YOUNGHUSBAND says:
        (link)

        @Slim: I do have a Kieff for DJ trade in the books. That would work yeah? Surprised with the Low FT too.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @YOUNGHUSBAND: I like that one!

  6. Thunder from down under says:

    Kobe line: 23/5/2

    • Thunder from Down Under says:
      (link)

      @Thunder from down under: Also would you drop Fournier for Burks? thanks

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @Thunder from Down Under: Damn that’s tough, I really don’t want to answer this question. I’m trying to figure out a way to answer without picking a side… I shouldn’t though. I’ll take Burks. His minutes are as secure as can be whereas a prolonged slump could doom Fournier. Also if this is H2H there is a playoff schedule to consider. The standard playoff schedule is, ORL – 4/2/3. UTA – 4/4/4. Easy decision there.

  7. Slim

    Slim says:
    (link)

    I am not enjoying seeing Middleton available in the F&F. Fournier vs KMidd? vs KJ? vs Ed Davis? This is a tough one and I think we might regret passing on Middleton.

    There are players out there I just enjoy watching play the game and Alec Burks is very near the top of the list. Right now there’s also Giannis, Reggie, James Ennis. I know, not the most popular players.

    I dropped Donatas for James Ennis in our RCL. Got my fingers crossed he gets his minutes.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: KJ I’d be fine with, wanna make that move?

      Haha I forgot to grab Ennis as soon as waivers clear! Eh well, I probably want’t “really” gonna do that 🙂

  8. Pete says:
    (link)

    Hey, I’m the fool that drafted Derrick Rose against your better judgement. Right now I’m debating whether to cut my losses before it gets worse. I’m considering trading him for Oladipo, who I think is only going to get better after coming back from injury and is a good buy low. Would you make that trade straight up or try to get a little more? Or should I wait to see if Rose’s stock rises at all. Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pete: Hah, no worries, we def have gotten some wrong too!Yeah I’d take Dipo! Looks good out there. Ummm, the risk of waiting is another lingering injury or a big one. i might let him go now

  9. Wutang says:
    (link)

    Hey guys! Lovin the millsap n horford calls, so undervalued – I’ll ride them into the sunset!

    Provlem now is, my big men are severely lacking..
    PG: Wall, MCW, Knight, Calderon
    SG: Ellis, Sloan, Bradley
    SF: Kawhi, Ariza
    PF: Millsap, Horford
    C: Bogut, Dieng

    Prob gonna cut the cord with Bradley for a big man cause I’m hurtin there… Should I cut ties with Sloan now too? Think I got my PG rotation lookin good!

    Available big men: O’Quinn,Adams, J. Johnson, PitPat, Kaman, Stoudemire, Len, Lavoy Allen..?

    No way Kobe gets more than 20/5/5 tonight, harden n soften gonna killem

    • Annunnaki says:
      (link)

      @Wutang: I’d cut Sloan for Kaman and hold tight on Bradley.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wutang: Yessir! Millsap already showing what I had him so well ranked for!I don’t see too much differentiation from Adams/Kaman/O’Quinn and Bogut/Dieng is gonna be nasssssty, so I think I hold until Sloan gets benched when PAcers get healthy

      • Wutang says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I like my big men, I just need another one – sloaners gettin benched twice this werk for Bradley bc I have so manypg’s playing! Help a brudda outtt

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Wutang: Ehhh aight you sold me, in that case I would stream for the end of this week, I think Kaman plays Saturday & Sunday? Gets you some extra games in there

          • Wutang says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: I like it!! 8 moves a week I don’t mind my streams ! Keep an eye on the big men for me, you can imagine who’s available in a 12er – Prob drop Sloan depending how his game goes tonight but it could be Bradley……. Think aboit me!

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

      @Cale: Nice! Yeah we both are seeing a heavy shooting game…

      • Cale says:

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah, Kobe is going to want to show up Howard.

        • JB Gilpin

          @Cale: Agree with ya there!

  11. Mugiwara says:

    All things equal, would you rather pick up Middleton or Alex Len. Side note: Lamb is also available

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mugiwara: Yeah I would take MIddleton over those 2

  12. I am the Walrus says:

    Trade Wroten for Frye?

    • I am the Walrus says:
      (link)

      How about Wroten DGreen? Or should I ride out Wroten for awhile and see what happens?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @I am the Walrus: It’s close, I’d probably take Frye. But give it a game or two indeed, see how it goes

  13. T says:
    (link)

    I’m punting assists and trying to sell high on Reggie. No TO league. Who would you target straight up for him? If I were to package him with Kieff, who would be a good target?

    Thanks!

    • T says:
      (link)

      @T: Would you rather him or Draymond?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @T: Ummm, no TO I’ll narrowly stick with RJax ROS over Draymond, but very very close. RJax+Kieff should command a pretty big haul. A Hayward/Batum/Gay type? One of those studly wings? Also if no TO, maybe go after a PG like Lawson

  14. Hayward Ginobili says:

        Should I drop him for Middleton, len, ed Davis, kaman? Or hold onto him?

    (link)

    thanks for the pre-season advice on millsap and jrue fellas, i have them in both my teams and they are proving bargains so far.

    i have durant, t jones and rubio in a 10 team H2H and i am loosing my patience. what would you do? the waiver wire ‘studs’ are d lee and shawne williams so do i keep calm and brace the storm?

    also what sort of player could you move j hill for? cheers

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Samsonite: Yessir! Glad to hear it! I’m fine dropping Jones, the problem for Lee is it still has you with a hurt guy! I’d stream Jones’ spot with an eye on Lee returning. I wouldn’t want to move Hill for anything less than a top 50-60 kind of guy…. Like for Teague if you needed a PG

  17. Terrence Jones has hit waivers in my 12-team H2H 8 category league amid speculation he’ll be out another month. Would you take the risk and put a claim in, dropping Channing Frye in the process or do I want no part in that? Mike Dunleavy would be another candidate I could drop.

    I just took a flier on George Hill, just because it’s against my religion to let starting PGs sit out there — even if he is out until December.

    So if I did this 2 of 3 of my bench spots would be taken by injured players but also filled with upside. My team is pretty solid…

    PG Wall
    SG Bledsoe
    SF Dunleavy
    PF Aldridge
    C Big Al
    G Lillard
    F Drummond
    UTIL Jeremy Lin
    UTIL Avery Bradley
    UTIL PBev
    Bench Solomon Hill
    Bench George Hill
    Bench Channing Frye

    Thanks guys!

    • JB Gilpin

      @WNWDOTCOM: Def wouldn’t Frye, I’m not a Dunleavy guy I think I would make that move and have optimism that there’s clarity he’s back sooner.

      Yeah man team is looking good! Big Al will hit his stride again and give you some commanding big man stats

    Rjax or Faried in 8 cat? Thoughts on Stuckey ROS?

      @Stanky: Oh and I think Stuckey needa to be owned more, will take a few weeks to get healthy/minutes, but will be solid

    Good morning JB!

    I’m thinking of trying to trade reggie Jackson, are there any guys you think I could get for him? I know it all depends on the people in my league but just asking who you suggest going for.

    Also was offered Chris Paul and Melo for my Davis and Rose and am not sure. Pretty sure the guy changed his mind (crazy motherf’ thinks he’s getting Davis without giving up paul and melo) but just curious what you think because I think I’d need more for davis

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TR: Morning man! Ummm, I’d target what your team needs. PG vs. bigs. RJax + something for Horford or Al Jeff? Think both are buy lows. Yeah I don’t think I could trade Brow, I sadly don’t own him anywhere, but I couldn’t do that

  23. Cale says:
    (link)

    Was offered Durant for either…
    1) Marc Gasol and Jrue Holiday
    2) Dirk and Tony Parker

    Which one should I take?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Cale: Def like 1 by far the most… It’s close, I dunno man, I wouldn’t want to trade Durant after building in 3 weeks of his holding time into your year

      • Cale says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks for the input. This goes back to my comment from yesterday in that the guy with Durant has started 5-22…so he wants to start trying to dig out of that hole.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Cale: Oh that’s right! You could get him for Dirk and Parker? Gimme dat one all day! I was reading it backwards as if you were trading KD

  24. Dom says:

    Regarding Ed Davis; apparently Boozer is a big minutes whiner and he would definetly make a stink if removed from starting lineup. Also let’s not forget that this could be the greatest stealth tank job of all time and maybe the Lakers don’t actually want the better player on the floor.

    My streaming options for Thursday are pretty limited. If I don’t care about volume scoring, who do you like? Shawne Williams vs LAC, Mike Dunleavy @ SAC, Ben McLemore vs CHI? Spencer Hawes? Aaron Brooks? Is Shawne really a 2+ threes guy? Thanks!

    League Pass not showing NBA TV games sucks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dom: Hah, well yes Boozer is a whiner about everything and I know he complains about minutes, especially last year with the Bulls. I dunno, I think while Davis is better, doesn’t necessarily translate into wins either, but that’s a good point. I’d prob take Williams for tomo. Yeah NBA League Pass is the worst…

  25. Jake VZ says:
    (link)

    Would you do any of these trades?
    1. My Jefferson for Lowry ( I could use PG depth )
    2. My Butler and Sullenger for Irving

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake VZ: 1. Umm sure, given needs I have no issue with it. 2. Yeah I’d prefer that one, I think while he’s awesome, butler does trend down when Rose plays more. Any time man!

    Is it worth dropping Robin Lopez for Dieng in a 10-team H2H league?

    • JB Gilpin

      @Carl: Wow…. I would say no ROS, but def want Dieng. Like him more while Pek is out!

    just was offered my harden, conley, monroe and wesley or knight
    for
    his davis, colison, oladipo, and brook lopez or nene

    should I do this? and if so who should I give wesley or knight and who should I get Nene or BoLo?

      @Patrick McCurry: Whoa, def taking Davis side! I’d trade Matthews befor eKNight since you need PG depth, and I would take Brolo

    Two words JB, well I guess it’s one word in the Internet world where everything is one word as long as it’s a website address. But I digress. One word for you. BallStreams!

    I’ve had League Pass before and it was such crappy quality half the time, Raps were blacked out and other games too, too expensive, and no Chromecast support either (not sure if they have it now).

    BallStreams has been great this year. Chromecast, no blackouts, Home/Away feeds, and you can freeze your account in the offseason so a year subscription lasts almost 2 seasons. Plus it’s like half the price of League Pass I think.

      @A Hill O’ Beans: BallStreams huh?! Will need to check em out! One thing though is I love watching on my iPad…

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: They have an Android app, two actually since they have a separate one for Chromecast on Android. They’ve also got apps for Roku, Plex, XBMC among others. For most other devices, iPad included, you stream through the browser, which works well as far as I know.

        Its been great for me so far this year. Apparently they do hockey too, but since I live in Canada I get more hockey than I need on TV, and I don’t even have cable. Its like they force feed it to you.

          @A Hill O’ Beans: Force feed it to you like poutines! Yeah I think I’ll check it out maybe next year, already bought the game time shizz so kinda stuck with it

    Hey guys .. great analysis as always. Who you guys pick for ROS between KCP, ERIC GORDON, MIDDLETON, BOJAN, DANILO. Please advise. I got KCP AND Gordon on my team . Meeks not coming back till FEB, and Gordon been so bad lately.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @WeTheNorth: Thanks man! Gimme Middleton right now. KCP has been sad… Dunno where the hell the steals have gone! I’d prob keep Gordon next to him for now

    My team desperately needs FG% and rebounds. Is there any guys on the waiver wire who can help? And who to drop? I already have Ed Davis.

    Potentially droppable players: KCP, KJ McDaniels, James Ennis, Jeremy Lamb

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @fields: Well KCP isn’t helping FG% any time soon! Haha. Not loving any of those guys. Kaman on the wire? Hopefully Dieng is too! But I doubt it…

      • fields says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: No and no. And I had KCP and Pierce benched last night when they both had huge games!

    Whats up JB! Thanks for the shout out!

    I’m thinking of offering Lillard for Iblocka and Westbrook for Harden. I didn’t take the trade yet because I’ve stuck with Westbrook till now and he seems to be coming back sooner than later. And I’m a Westbrook fan so a little bias. If the trades go thru my team would be:
    Harden/Westbrook
    Iblocka/Lillard
    Horford
    Favors
    Walker
    Rubio
    MCW
    JV
    Giannis
    K-Mart
    Draymond
    Big Ed Davis

    What do you think? Sort of in love with team right now.

    Leggo 2 in a row!
    Kobes Line: 31/3/4

      @m1chael: Well deserved my man! Love getting Ibaka, I dunno, i think I’d rather Harden over Westbrook though. Def a solid team! If you get another perfect one, you will be the official Nostradamus of Razzball Nation!

  36. kb24 says:

    Should I drop Ed Davis for Mozgov or Varejao? Also, do you think KJ McDaniels is worth the hold?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @kb24: Nah I wouldn’t for either. Prob holding KJ over those guys too, narrowly worth a hold

    JB, can you tell Slim if he wants Ennis in Rel he needs to stop talking him up. He looks raw, but so fluid. And that dunk against Brooklyn was sick, even if was cherry picking. My kobe line 32/5/3 on 27 shots. You read that right, more than a point a shot. #effecientkobe

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Curry burns my ass!!: Haha I’ll try, but he is a stubborn man! I’ll trade you something better for Tobias… Want Aldridge in some sort of deal? Got ya on the Kobe board! I need you to co-manage my REL football team, just keeps slipping my mind… Ugh…

  38. miles proudfoot. says:
    (link)

    Hey, how’s it goin? With Ibaka not playing so well, I’d like to take a run at a trade for him. I have both Millsap and Dirk. I’m thinking offer Millsap, then when he says no, try Dirk…I’m assuming in all this that Ibaka is a better get than both of them. Thanks!

    • miles proudfoot. says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot.: or perhaps my Dirk/Bledsoe for his Ibaka/Rondo? I need blocks and assists (my FT are totally shot anyway) and he needs 3s and pts.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @miles proudfoot.: Good man! Yeah I like Ibaka more, I dunno I’d trade Dirk first, love my Millsap! But the Rondo one I like better. No blocks, but Ibaka looking great tonight!

    Hey Guys,

    I’m in a 10 team Roto Points league with FG%, FT%, 3PM, REB, AST, STL, BLK, DD, TD, PTS.
    Right now I’m in 2nd, but the team in 1st is starting to pull away a bit. He has a really decent squad.
    I’m struggling with FT% and 3PM, and I’m pretty average in AST, STL, and PTS. I’m leading/close to leading all the other categories.
    My squad consists of Rondo, Giannis, Draymond, J Hill, Big Al, Ariza, MC-W, Dieng, A. Davis, Cousins, Collison, Calderon, Carroll (IR)

    Guys like Burke, Lamb, Frye, Beverly, Gallinari, Payton, Dunleavy, McRoberts, Kaman, etc. are on the wire. I want to add Burke but can’t seem to pick anyone to drop for him…
    Any moves you would consider making? I almost feel like I need to stream 3s to pump those numbers up, or try to make some trades. Any input would be great.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pope: Yeah Burke and Frye I think help your team out a lot. Not seeing any drops either, I dunno, Calderon for Burke? Crazy as it sounds, if you need production now, wouldn’t hate that… Everyone else is must own. you’re way in it though with Brow! Rondo just HAS to get better at FT. I think your team is looking pretty nasty!

      • Pope says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks JB! Since it’s roto, and I’m in 2nd, I think I might sit and see what Calderon does… Hopin he dimes out better than Burke and maybe hits some 3s

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Pope: Yeah in roto you can be more patient, agree there. Very easily could outdo Burke in the dimes, def will out trey him though methinks. Any time!

  41. Mari says:
    (link)

    Hey guys,
    What do you think Terrence Ross’s production will be like for ROS?
    And, do you think George Hill is worthy of a stash in, at least, 12 teamers?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mari: I think he’s about what he’ll do this year, about the same as last year. Yeah, depends on if anyone else is hurt, but I like holding HIll if youre otherwise healthy
