The NBA is a heart-stopping, fist-pumping, high-fiving, chemical-imbalance-inducing procreator of basketball nirvana. The squeak of the shoes, talk of the trash, swish of the nets, and thunder of dunks fill our ears with melodic harmony. We gawk at the freakishness of the giants who jump like fleas and midgets who careen around defenders like a cheetah about to catch lunch. We mental masturbate over pick-and-rolls, alley-oops, Euro-steps, and ICE defense. Bascially, the NBA is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnntastic! Now, what happens when you combine the NBA with MMA? You get elbowing, pushing, eye gouging, headlocks, and submissions…..which is exactly what happened last night in, coincidentally, the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. Karl-Anthony Towns (meow) and Joel Embiid got tangled up, started shoving each other, then went sumo style to the ground. Benches emptied, players sprinted, and Ben Simmons ended up with the fatality….

I don’t condone violence, but it’s refreshing to see things actually going down; instead of the “hold me back” shenanigans. Anyways, both KAT and Embiid were ejected and will likely get some sort of suspension. You know what never gets ejected or suspended, and will always be there for you? Beep. Boop. Bop. The Stocktonator. Ben Simmons as well. Probably a bunch of other players for leaving the bench. The main thing I took away from the whole fracas, though, was that KAT is truly a different animal this season. Not only has he taken his game to the next level, but he’s showing that he has some…..dog in him.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

 

Julius Randle

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 10 7 0 1 3 0/2 7/13 2/3

Randle is a dub-dub machine and an excellent passer, as he’s messed around six times in his career. The lack of defensive stats and threes keep his value down, but he will provide plenty of points, boards, and dimes. Currently, he’s the #206 player, but should settle somewhere in the 100 area.

RJ Barrett

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

Got the start at point guard because Dennis Smith Jr. and Elfrid Payton were out. The inefficient shooting was more of what I expected from Barrett this season, but he’s defied all my expectations so far. The Magic play excellent defense so I wouldn’t be too alarmed. One game does not make a trend.

Mitchell Robinson

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

In 19 minutes! Checks Twitter. Checks Rotoworld. Nope, no injuries. Looks at box score. Only 1 foul. Hmmmph. Types in….who is Knicks coach into the Google machine. Got it.

Frank Ntilikina

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
7 4 4 0 0 0 1/3 3/8 0

Played 29 minutes off the bench. He still can’t shoot but plays good defense. I think he has a ton of potential, especially after watching him defeat the US over the summer. Fizdale is a bobo.

Aaron Gordon

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 11 1 1 1 0 3/6 6/13 0

Finally! A good game by Gordon. Yes, it was against New York, but beggars can’t be choosers at this stage of the game. Gotham is based on New York, so it makes sense that Commissioner Gordon makes an appearance against the Knicks.

Nikola Vucevic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 13 4 1 1 1 2/4 8/17 3/4

We were getting worried there for a bit, and there were intense discussions of moving Tesla ahead of Vucevic in the Nikola pantheon. Last night’s performance simmered the conversation.

Jonathan Isaac

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
10 7 4 0 3 2 0/1 4/6 2/2

The defensive stats are what you drafted Isaac for, and he delivers every night. We want the cake and ice cream, though, which is contributions on offense. The usage rate was 12.7 last night and he hasn’t had a number over 19 yet this season, so ceiling games will be few and far between, but did you see those dimes? Probably an outlier but a good sign nonetheless. It’s early, but Isaac is a top 25 player for fantasy right now.

Terrence Ross

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

Ross is a discount store for a reason. I still like going there, as great bargains will be found, and once in a while, a whoa moment will occur. Just remember what Ross is and you’ll be fine.

Talking about a whoa moment, the Rockets defeated the Wizards, 159-158.

WHOA!!!!

James Harden

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
59 3 9 1 0 4 6/14 18/32 17/18

It was only a matter of time. This is why James gets me Harden excited. Beep. Boop. Bop. The Stocktonator has smoke emanating from it’s vents because it had Harden as the #1 player last night.

Russell Westbrook

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 10 12 2 1 4 1/5 7/16 2/4

It truly was a good day. Russ messed around, while Harden dropped 59 out of 159 for a 1 point victory. But guys? How you gonna give up 158 to the Washington Gener….I mean Wizards. That’s like getting fired on your day off.

Clint Capela

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 12 3 1 1 1 0 9/13 3/7

C & C Music Factory made us dance once again last night. The field goal percentage has been excellent and the blocks are at 2.7 for the season. With that said, the free throw shooting is still atrocious and the boards and minutes are light from last year. Those should get ramped up soon.

Thomas Bryant

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 12 5 1 4 1 0/1 5/10 3/4

I love Bryant. Always have since he was a Laker. Dude plays his ass off and is now showing what he can do with the opportunity. Why the F did the Lakers get rid of him? I’m sad now. And they just waived him without getting any compensation. I’m about to storm Staples Center. Bryant can literally do it all; score, board, dish out dimes, shoot from downtown, and provide good percentages from both the field and line.

Rui Hachimura

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 5 0 0 0 1 3/3 9/15 2/2

The kid can score and provide tres with a smattering of boards. He won’t provide much else, though.

Bradley Beal

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
46 6 8 3 0 5 7/12 14/20 11/12

Played a team-high 41 minutes. The Beal was sumptuous last night. Unfortunately, just a tad overcooked.

Davis Bertans

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 3 2 0 0 0 6/9 7/10 1/1

Played 27 minutes off the bench. Guess which team gives up the most three-point attempts per game. Yup, the Houston Rockets at 43.7. Guess what Bertans does well. Yup, stroke it from downtown. That’s what they call a match made in heaven.

Isaiah Thomas

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 2 10 1 0 5 2/4 6/11 3/3

Played 24 minutes off the bench. It’s only a matter of time before the IT guy gets promoted to the floor. Not such a bold statement considering Ish Smith is the starter. Ok, that was a little hyperbole because there are injury concerns with Thomas and Smith will play, but IT is going to get busy while he plays and, while he won’t get 30 minutes a game, he will do damage with minutes in the low-20s.

Anthony Tolliver

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

Played 26 minutes and continues to start for the injured Zach Collins. He’s a low usage player, but is a veteran who will contribute a little something something across the board.

Hassan Whiteside

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 12 0 2 2 2 0 4/9 4/6

Numerologists across the world descended upon Mt. Whiteside to pay homage. There was a scare, as Hassan limped to the locker room with a left knee issue, but he played in the second half. Something to monitor.

Damian Lillard

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 7 13 2 0 1 4/9 7/19 5/6

Y’all know what time it is….

Never gets old. Dame Dolla; shot caller, shot maker, definitely ain’t a faker. Currently the #7 player for fantasy. Holla!

Skal Labissiere

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

Played 21 minutes off the bench. Got some extra run due to the injuries to Collins and Whiteside. I’ve never been a fan of Skal, but he does have some potential and can fill the stat sheet. Not sure he gets the minutes to be fantasy viable, but someone to keep an eye on.

Nerlens Noel

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 14 2 1 1 3 0 6/7 3/4

Got the start for the injured Steven Adams and did not disappoint. When he plays, Noel is a stud. He just doesn’t play enough. Now, if the injury to Adams lingers or he gets traded, then rejoice and exalt his name.

Hamidou Diallo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 10 1 2 0 0 0 5/9 2/4

Hamidou did. In 20 minutes. He’s averaging 18.3 minutes on the season, but could see a bump, as Terrance Ferguson has not been good.

PJ Washington

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 8 3 0 0 0 2/3 10/13 1/2

Everything Washington was golden last night. PJ played 36 minutes and should continue to eat. Don’t fret the lack of stocks, as he usually contributes in those cats.

Cody Zeller

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 15 5 0 0 3 0/1 6/14 0

Ho hum. Just another dub-dub for Zeller with five dimes to boot! He’s a top 50 player right now and should maintain that value as long as he stays healthy, which is a big ask.

Terry Rozier

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 5 6 3 2 4 3/6 7/15 5/7

Who is this masked man shooting the ball well? Did Halloween come a day early?

Dwayne Bacon

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

Sizzling Bacon is such a treat. Unfortunately, this Bacon provides unwanted cholesterol more often than not. He’s a career 42% shooter from the field and 36% from downtown, but so far this season, Bacon is shooting 36% from the field and 25% from downtown.

Devonte’ Graham

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 5 9 0 0 3 2/5 4/7 2/2

Played 31 minutes off the bench after playing 32 the prior game. He’s dished out 9 and 12 dimes the past two games and scored double figures in four of five games this year. He’s a top 60 player right now and the answer to your question is yes.

Richaun Holmes

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 9 2 2 3 4 0 8/10 1/2

Got the start and played 35 minutes.

Image result for it's happening gif

De’Aaron Fox

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 7 10 2 1 5 1/5 6/16 3/3

Fox has started the season slowly, as he’s barely a top 200 player, but things will turn around. Last night was a good start. The high turnovers and poor field goal percentage are concerns, though.

Buddy Hield

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 1 4 2 0 2 7/16 8/22 0

Led the Kings in shot attempts and points. As with Fox, the shooting efficiency has been piss poor to start the season. Any wonder why the Kings are 0-5. Besides Luke Walton being a shit coach. Because Hield doesn’t contribute much outside of points and tres, if he’s not shooting well, his value is flushed down the toilet.

Bogdan Bogdanovic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 2 5 1 0 0 2/11 4/14 2/3

Did the Kings hire a new shooting coach or something? Bog played 26 minutes off the bench and is the main guy for the second unit. Unlike Buddy, he does contribute a little something something in the periphery cats.

Domantas Sabonis

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 8 4 0 3 2/4 11/18 5/6

Led the Pacers in scoring and is a beast down low. Arvydas would be proud. The percentages are excellent, he’s pulling down boards, and even draining a few from downtown. Just don’t expect much in the way of defensive stats. Now, Myles Turner left the game with an ankle injury, so Sabonis could see more usage.

Myles Turner

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

Only played 10 minutes due to the aforementioned ankle injury. Severity is not yet known.

Goga Bitadze

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

The binary line!!! Been a long time. Anyways, Goga played nine minutes due to the Myles injury. He could see more playing time as a result. Watching tape of Goga, I understand why the Pacers drafted him. He’s a skilled big man that can shoot from downtown, finish strong around the basket, be an effective rim runner, and pass well.

Jeremy Lamb

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 7 0 1 0 2 3/7 11/19 0/2

Returned from injury and played 34 minutes. He’s baa baaa baaaaaack.

Malcolm Brogdon

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 8 13 3 0 2 1/5 7/19 6/6

Brogdon is the #6 player for fantasy right now, as he’s averaging a whopping 11.3 dimes per game!!! Add on 22 points, 5.3 boards, 1.5 steals, and 95% from the free throw line, and you have a Malcolm that is far from the middle.

DeAndre Jordan

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
8 17 0 0 1 1 0 3/7 2/4

Boards and blocks are what this DJ spin. He played 23 minutes, which is where he will land most games.

Kyrie Irving

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
28 7 6 1 1 1 2/6 11/20 4/5

The #2 player for fantasy right now. Kyrie………….

Spencer Dinwiddie

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 2 7 1 0 4 1/5 7/17 5/6

Played 27 minutes off the bench. He’s the primary scorer for the second unit and is a solid source of points. The seven dimes were nice but not something to count on every night.

Kawhi Leonard did not play due to load management. He had to spend the night plugged into the matrix so that the new OS could be uploaded in his preparation for the Spurs coming to town on Friday.

 Lou Williams

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 3 4 0 0 5 1/3 9/17 5/7

Got the start and played 28 minutes. With no Kawhi or Paul George on the court, Lou has a usage rate over 32!

JaMychal Green

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 8 0 0 1 1 5/6 8/11 2/2

Played 27 minutes off the bench and was the only other Clipper besides Lou to score over 20 points. He’s shooting 60% from the field. Yeah….Outside of scoring, tres, and some boards, Green doesn’t contribute much. When the Clippers are healthy, he’s couterfeit money.

Montrezl Harrell

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
10 2 0 0 0 0 0 5/9 0

Was in foul trouble. Combine that with the Stiffel Tower being open to the public, then it was a bad, bad night for Montrezl.

Mike Conley

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 1 5 2 0 2 5/8 11/17 2/2

He wasn’t going to shoot 10% or whatever the putrid number was for the entire season. I saw a lot of crazy trades involving Conley. This is why the beginning of the season produces the most opportunity, as emotions run high and people act on them.

Suns blotted out the Pacifists, 121-110. The game wasn’t even that close.

Dario Saric

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 9 5 5 0 1 2/5 7/15 0

Mario with the D actually delivered the D!!!! He started and played 31 minutes, a role that he’s locked into. Dario wasn’t shooting well to begin the season, but he’s a career 36% from downtown, so it was only a matter of time.

Aron Baynes

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 13 7 0 3 1 2/8 9/18 4/5

AB see D out of the room? Yeah right, but Baynes has been great filling in for Ayton. Points, boards, dimes, blocks, and tres. What more could you ask for?

Devin Booker

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
31 4 5 1 0 3 6/10 10/21 5/5

Yawn. Just a thirty-point game. No biggie.

Steph Curry

9 5 6 1 2 4 1/7 3/11 2/2

Only played 21 minutes due to injury, after he fell down and Baynes landed on his arm. The diagnosis is a broken left hand. Might as well tank, get healthy, and try for the #1 pick.

Marquese Chriss DNP-CD. Thank God.

The Pacifists started Draymond Green Eric Paschall, Glenn Robinson III, Steph Curry, and D’Angelo Russell. Yuck.

Eric Paschall

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 3 0 1 2 0 0 7/9 6/6

Played 38 minutes and could be in line for more starts. Omari Spellman played 22 minutes while Willie Cauley-Stein played 12 minutes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 14 5 1 2 3 0/2 8/13 6/10

Lack of tres and free throws are his weaknesses. Speaking of free throws….

Khris Middleton

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

Led the Bucks in scoring. Middleton won’t contribute the D, but his YMCA game will always deliver points and tres.

Gordon Hayward

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 10 7 1 1 2 3/6 9/17 0

Played 38 minutes and is slowly returning to form. Will he ever be the top 35 player from the Utah days? Probably not, but top 50-60 is feasible.

Kemba Walker

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
32 6 6 0 0 3 4/11 7/19 14/15

Houston is first in number of three-point attempts allowed. Milwaukee is second. A good matchup for Kemba and he delivered.

Marcus Smart

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 4 6 1 0 0 5/11 7/16 0

Got the start and played 38 minutes, as Jaylen Brown did not play due to sickness. For those of you who played Marcus, you Smart.

Interestingly, outside of the center position, the rest of the Celtics all played at least 38 minutes. Only three bench players received 10+ minutes, and they were all big men.

Andre Drummond

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 22 3 0 1 5 0 10/17 1/2

Just another 20/20 game for Dre, who has 34 in his career. Only 634 more to catch Wilt.

Derrick Rose

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

OG Anunoby

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 8 0 2 0 2 1/2 6/10 0

The Force is strong in this one. OG is averaging 34.8 minutes per game and is top 25 player at the moment. It’s all about the steals and blocks, but he’s contributing tres, boards, and excellent field goal percentage.

Fred VanVleet

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 1 11 1 0 1 1/3 5/9 2/2

Continues to start and play well. He’s a top 35 player right now and is averaging 7.2 dimes per game. And he’s contributing 2.4 tres, 4 boards, 1.4 steals, and shooting 95% from the line. The field goal percentage is shit, though. And not the good, clean, hot dog-looking kind. I’m talking about the wet, green, chunky….ok, I’ll stop now.

Otto Porter Jr.

          Ok. Points leagues are fairly simple. Go to rest of season projections, then calculate the points according to your league settings. So add up Drummond with the player you’re going to drop and compare to the points projections for Butler/Tobias. Whichever comes out higher, that’s the way to go.

    Fiz is on crack. Good thing I got Mitch Robb at #66 so I didn’t really overreach like what everybody else prolly did. Hah

    Team is hurting with Ayton out and Turner getting hurt but as long as the Suns are winning NBA games then I’m enjoying life. Lol Jesus, my suns are making me really proud!!

    9c/10t
    Jokic PF,C
    Irving PG,SG
    Booker PG,SG
    Ayton C
    Turner PF,C
    Oubre SF
    Anunoby SF,PF
    SGA PG,SG
    Robinson C
    Barton SF
    Wright PG,SG
    Richardson SG,SF*
    Bledsoe PG,SG*

    Im putting asterisk beside Bledsoe and Richardson’s name coz they seem to be the odd men out on my squad. I’m even tempted to drop Bledsoe for Fultz, or Noel. Thats how bad it is. But Im benching them until they get a hold of themselves and shoot better than .400. Geez

    I’m focusing on cats:
    FG
    FT
    REB
    AST
    BLK
    PTS

      Ha! Fiz is a weirdo. Anyways, the Suns are balling! I’m happy for you. I clowned them in the off-season about the moves they made, but it turns out that I’m the stupid one.

      Please don’t drop Bledsoe for Fultz or Noel. That would make me Kawhi

    SON, whos the pick up between PJ Washington, Nance or Milsap?
    Needs not a issue

      Son says:

      PJ for me

  8. Kyle says:

    Man, is Baynes legit? I need some assists and steals. Have an offer of Nunn for Baynes. Seen legit or should I hold onto AB?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Baynes is legit but he’s only good until Ayton returns

    AYYYO!

    What a night. Amazing desciption of the NBA! I feel the exact same way!

    Besides the obvious crazzzzzyness in the NBA! wOW.

    It was great to see Mike Conley back! Needed to see that.

    Had a good night with a few of my guys that have got off to slow starts, actually show up!

    I love how this squad is coming together, so far.

    12 team – H2H

    Jrue/Conley/Lowry/Rozier
    Oubre/Levert/Herro/Tucker/Hunter/Danny Green
    Jokic/Vucevic/Bryant/Baynes/Holmes

    Guys I would drop –

    Hunter, Green & in the back of my mind, I know Baynes will expire when Ayton returns.

    So I need a future plan for Baynes, but man he had a monster line last night.

    Available – Looney, Zubac, McGee, Noel, Hood, Robinson III

    Side note – Looneys 1 game – 10 minutes / 9 boards. Sample size jumping out the box.

    What’s the deal on him ?

    And to answer anyones question on Holmes – GO GET HIM!

    Glad I did a few days ago (check)

    Peace Son!

    • Son

      Son says:

      AYYYO!

      I like your squad too. And Jrue has been trash as well.

      I like Looney and think he will be the guy for the Warriors. Just needs to be healthy and the Pacifists are going to be trash

    Hi Son,

    I’ve got both KAT and Myles, so my team’s about to take a dump. Sigh.

    Onto more exciting things! Roto/9cat/12 team keeper league. I don’t think I’ve got enough starts to play both Herro and Nunn at the same time; is there one you might recommend over the other?

    Nunn’s been pretty consistent with getting 2 steals a game, but I’m afraid his usage will go down with JButts back. (Got 30 minutes in the last game though) He’s also consistently getting multi-3s a game, as well as 2-3 AST a night.

    Herro had a great game against the HAWHKS last time and is playing them again tonite. But his shooting % has been not great otherwise, and doesn’t offer the STL that Nunn offers. But his ceiling is definitely higher, and he’s sneaky-good at getting boards.

    What do?

    Also, Richaun Holmes or Baynes? Or is Paschall a better long-term play given that Bags III and Ayton will be back at some point?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’d rather have Nunn.

      Holmes. I think there’s a chance Holmes plays alongside Bagley

      • Barts says:

        Thanks, Son!

        • Son

          Son says:

          Anytime

  11. Cohen says:

    SON, one more question
    I have both Winslow and Herro
    Drop either for Holmes or hold?
    Need to improve fg pct and boards will help

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’d be ok with swapping Herro for Holmes

  12. Jep says:
    (link)

    Got to be one of the craziest weeks for me and it’s only Week 2. Lost Trae for the week, now KAT tapping out. Went from projected 6-3 win to 4-4 and still up in the air with 4 fewer games than opponent.

    Your thoughts on House or Powell for Danny Green?

    G: Trae, Lowry, Rozier, Wright, Schroder
    F: Isaac, PJWash, Danny G, PG13
    C: KAT, Bryant, Capela

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Naw, I wouldn’t. It’s only week 2. Don’t need to do anything rash

  13. eballs says:
    (link)

    Would you drop Olynyk for Bobby P?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’m fine with that. Just know that he can get Fiz’d at any moment

  14. BrownL says:
    (link)

    Satoransky is out on waivers, and I’m a bit low on dimes, but I’m having troble thinking of who I’d drop for him;
    G: Kemba, Beal, Schroder
    G/F: Lamb, Danny Green, Josh Hart
    F: Tatum, PJ Tucker, Paschall
    F/C: Horford, Love, Powell
    C: Valanciunas, Kanter (IL)

    • Son

      Son says:

      Hart for me

    Son! I’m so glad it’s basketball season again and I get to read your write-ups every morning, as well as all of these great comments.
    10 team h2h 9 cat points league and I need help.
    G: Beal, Kemba, Bledsoe, Lowry, Rozier
    G/F: RJ, Lamb
    PF/C: Horford, Mitchell Robinson, Ibaka
    I know I’m too heavy on PG’s but I’m having trouble dropping any of them for value on the wire and trades are rare in this league.
    PFs and SGs on the wire: Tristan, Paschall, OG, Justise.
    Drop Ibaka for any of them?
    Stick with Robinson or try to trade him? At this point I’m basically punting rebounds anyway.
    Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:

      It’s a beautiful time of year and thanks for reading and being a part of the Razzmunity.

      I think the distinction should be made that you are in categories league, not a points league. The difference between the two is vast.
      Anyways, since you’re punting boards, you must let Justise be served. Too much usage and across-the-board production to be on the wire

      • akboognish says:
        (link)

        Yeah, good point that I’m not in a points league! Glad you could figure that out. I also see that I mistook SGs for SFs. Those are just some of my problems. Anyway thanks for the advice, Justice WILL BE SERVED!

    Hello again Son,

    Would you trade Fox and a 2020 3rd rd pick FOR Rubio and a 2020 1st rd pick?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Context of league? How many keepers? How many teams? What’s the projection for that pick?

  17. jeff aces says:
    (link)

    12 team keeper – keep top 3 lose next top for 3rds

    My team:

    PG: Fox/Shai/Rozier/Aaron Holiday
    SG: Harden/Lamb/hardaway/
    SF: Antetokounmpo/Hayward/Winde/Oubre/crowder/Isaac
    PF: JJJ/Nance/ Fernando/Gafford
    C: Jokic/Sabonis/Poeltl/Goga

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Sorry. Hard to keep track of all the leagues. I would not make that trade

  18. Crime dog says:

    Ayyo what up son. Loving these write ups.

    Drop Brandon Clarke or Holmes for paschall?

    • Son

      Son says:

      Negative

  19. Tom Vrijders says:

    Hey Son

    Is it ok to drop Gay for Richaun Holmes?

    He is on fire now but maybe he wont when bagley gets back? Whats your thought on it?

    Thanks

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      There’s risk for sure but I think it’s a risk well worth taking

  20. J says:
    (link)

    Yo Son,

    10 team 8cat H2h (no turnovers)

    Do I trade away Brogdon and Blopez for Jrue?

    Pretty jammed up at Center (Embiid, Bam, Holmes, and Lopez) really like holmes feeling like I need to do something with Brook, and Brogdon for Holiday swap could benefit me in the long run… maybe?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t but I get it. If you’re feeling it, go for it

      • J says:
        (link)

        Starting to hate it the more I think about it lol.

        Looking at a 2 for 1 with last place Giannis owner. He wants Bam and Brogdon (feels like too much) Trying to talk him down to something more reasonable.

        Would you package Gallo or Morant with Bam for Giannis maybe?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          I would

          • J says:
            (link)

            He seems interested in Bam/Ja for Giannis!

            Thank you for giving me the confidence to pursue this deal haha

  22. Swick says:

    Hey

    In a 9 cat redraft who you rolling with ros? Washington or Holmes?

    Thanks

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Depends on roster. If you want tres, the PJ. Also have to think about the Luke factor. PJ’s minutes are more secure

  23. Cole says:
    (link)

    9 Cat roto, 12 tm. Danny Green or Graham. My 3s are solid, assists aren’t bad, but I’m in need of everything else. Also, thought I might have overspent at 20% FAAB on PJ last week, but I’m glad I did. Good call on that one man.

    • Son

      Son says:

      Green.

      Good to hear on PJ. It’s still early =)
