Bullshitting is bad. Or is it? There are four reasons why people lie. 1) To hide or protect something. Good if you were harboring a Jew in Nazi Germany. Bad if you have a mistress. 2) Fear. Of getting caught. I guess that ties into protecting oneself. 3) To elevate one’s self-perception. You went to which school? You’re how tall? You slept with how many women? 4) It is the wise thing to do. Do I look fat in these jeans? BS’ing is often annoying or straight up lame, but it is an integral part of life. There are many situations in which being brutally honest serves no purpose other than to hurt the other person, which is lame. Damn it, is everything in life lame then? Last night, we had another example of BS’ing being bad….the good bad, though….as in dope. Now that I think about it, sometimes we just BS to mess around, which is what Ben Simmons did last night against the Bulls. Ironic, huh?

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 19 17 14 0 2 6 0 6/15 7/10

Simmons has now messed around five times on the season. He had been in a slump lately, looking disinterested and lacking aggression. It’s mindblowing to think that he can dominate a game without being able to shoot from the perimeter. He’s that good. Anyways, BS is a nightly triple-dub threat and will contribute with the D stats. As we established above, there’s good and bad with BS. The bad? Literally no 3s, like he hasn’t made one the entire year. The turnovers are plentiful. As I always say, good if you are high in a pastry shop. Not so good for fantasy. The free throw shooting is abysmal, like 55% bad. DeAndre Jordan, with his 60% on the year, is like, “Yo, Ben. You really need to practice bro.” Simmons is the 75th player for fantasy on the year. For the last month? The 110th. There are just too many holes in his game to approach Top 50 territory, but for punt FT% and 3 teams, BS is lovely.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Dario Saric:

Back-to-back double-dubs for Dario. Has scored double figures in 24 straight games. Playing in the low-30s on a nightly basis, knocks it down from downtown, and gets his 211 on. Top 90 player for fantasy.

Zach LaVine:

Played 24 minutes, which is a very encouraging sign. Outside of the overtime game the other night, the Bulls had kept LaVine at 20 minutes per game. Looks like they are slowing ramping him up. For those that stashed, you are wise.

Nikola Mirotic:

Justin Holiday:

 11 4 3 1 1 2 1/6 5/11 0

Got the start at power forward with LMA sitting and played 33 minutes. Bertans is a versatile big man who can shoot from downtown and play both the center and power forward positions. A viable streaming option when he fills in for LMA or Gasol.

Pau Gasol almost messed around.

Danny Green:

Played 29 minutes. Green is as inconsistent as they come for fantasy, but if he gets close to 30 minutes a game, he can make contributions across the board.

The point guard rotation for the Spurs was: Dejounte Murray with 24 minutes, Tony Parker with 21 minutes, and Patty Mills with 24 minutes. Murray scored 11, Parker scored 12, and Mills scored 15. Limits the upside for Murray.

Ivan Rabb received his first start  and played 17 minutes.

Chris Paul:

Yogi Ferrell:

Over the past two weeks, Menace has been a Top 35 player for fantasy. The only blemishes are the low 3-point percentage, limited boards, non-existent blocks, and hair. Other than that, plays a ton of minutes and often times has a usage rate approaching the 40 mark.

Possibly smoked too much Nemanja before the game. Just a bad shooting game. He got the attempts. Obviously, when Butler is healthy, Bjelica is a non-factor, but gets the minutes when he’s out and can score, board, and get his 211 on.

Andrew Wiggins:

Played 15 minutes. That’s back-to-back games with 15 minutes. Whenever I think about Rondo…..

If you own Rondo, that means you still need the assists. So tough to hold onto him, but you just know that once you click that drop button, he’s going to play 30 minutes and dish out 18 dimes. While Rubio causes road rage while walking, Rondo causes people to jump in front of cars for the insurance money.

Baynes is the big guy that provides beef down low. Theis is the more agile big man that has the ability to shoot from the perimeter. He can also grab his share of boards. Doesn’t get enough consistent minutes to be fantasy relevant, but he’s had his share of big games and could be useful in the occasional spot.

    Was watching the game between the Pistons and Jazz. Man, Drumm went ham.

    I just threw out names at Porter’s pissed owner–told him that I’m offering Rubio and Young for his boy Otto, he thinks we should do it, your thoughts?

    With Young I think he will take a hit once Myles is back in the lineup. Rubio on the other hand, I don’t know how he will get back to at least producing 7 dimes a ball game. But for a guard, he does haul in decent amount of boards but crushes your FG more often than not. And his swipes aren’t that elite anymore.

    The problem I see here is my team’s depth. I already gave up James Johnson and AG, and fortunately I was able to snag Chriss off the wire. I still have Delon, but damn, Casey’s rotation is outright ridiculous. I don’t know man. Help me out! Ha! Thanks

      I do think Porter could turn it around in the second half. The injury gives me a little pause though. Who’s available on the wire? Probably looking to pick up assists, right?

      The problem with Delon is that his ceiling is capped. There’s Lowry and DeRozan, but don’t forget about VanVleeeeeeeeeeeet!

            With regard to Center situation I only got two now. I gave up WCS awhile back (for Thad,) then traded both Aaron G and James J (both of which are good rebounders) for CJ. My boards did weaken with all the moves I made, but I still have RHJ, Thad, and Chriss at the front, so maybe, JUST maybe, those three could somehow help Capela with the rebounding production.

    Yo Son!

    I’m out here struggling to climb the rankings in my roto. Got torpedoed early by Kawhi, Gobert, Conley injuries and Bledsoe’s hissy-fit. Was able to do some dealing and am now in the middle of the pack. Punting assists. After the deadline my squad looks like this:

    PG – Collison
    SG – Lou Williams
    SF – Buckets
    PF – Lauri
    C – Boogie
    G – Gary Harris
    F – Skal
    UTL- Gobert
    UTL- Taj
    UTL- Otto
    B – Dedmon, Kawhi, Mirotic

    What do you think?

    ‘m looking at adding Oubre, Hield, or Ed Davis right now since points and boards are my two biggest needs. Do you have any speculative second half adds that you would suggest?

    Thanks, Homie!

      Tough to say because I don’t know who’s available. I think all those guys would be nice adds, but I’m not dropping anyone on your current roster to scoop them up. Trade for D Murray? John Collins?

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:

        @Son: My trade deadline just passed yesterday, unfortunately Murray and Collins are not attainable now. Dedmon worth holding even if he goes elsewhere?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Gotcha. Dedmon will more than likely lose value if he gets traded. Probably prudent to see how it shakes out. Like I said, I’m not sure who’s available in your league. If you throw out names, I’ll be more than happy to give you my thoughts, though.

          • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
            (link)

            @Son: Dinwiddie, Ingles, Oubre, Nance, Hield, Aminu, Brooks, Temple, Marcus Morris, Kennard, Bam, Wright

            And of course anyone who could see time open up at the deadline…

            • Son

              @OldMilwaukeePounders: I like Nance. Also take a look at the young guys in bad teams.

    aYo!

    Great read today Son! Killed it!

    Fox was dropped in my league this morning.

    Always looking to improve here.

    12 team league – 15 man rosters – Which make it pretty deep…

    Wall / DSJ / J. Murray / D. Murray
    G. Harris / Hardaway / Crabbe
    T. Harris / Prince / Nance
    Cousins / Gobert / Love / Griffin / Skal

    Do you see anyone I should swap Fox for ?

    I’m number #7 on the waiver so chances are I might not even land him..

    Also for the heck of it, which side wins this trade ?

    Westbrook / Dedmon for Lillard / Howard

    Not mu deal, but have an ongoing convo with friends about this one.

    Thanks

    • Son

      Son says:

      Ayo!!! Much appreciated Mr. Blast! I’d take a chance on Fox and drop Crabbe.

      Lillard/Howard for me.

    I can’t tell if this is a dumb question, but ESPN Player Rater got me all f’ed up. Myles Turner for John Wall. You take Wall, right? You do that deal?

    • Son

      Son says:

      @kalone: In a vacuum, I probably do it

      • kalone says:

        @Son: Thanks! You think it’s close, though?

          @kalone: Yeah

    Hey Son,

    I’ve been MIA since the holidays but managed to do catch-up on all the articles tho. You A-L-W-A-Y-S killed it!

    Anyhow, I made some adjustments with my roster. Some are stupid and some are meh which is why I need your reality slap because I’ve been wanting to make some movements on my roster.

    H2h 9 cat 16 team league

    Guard: Boo / DMitch / J. Murray / D. Murray / Teodosic / Bradley
    Forward: Prince / Green
    Center: Joker / Horford / Green / Turner / Biyombo / J. Allen (dropped GhostFace for him)

    I know my line-up looks messed up due to lack of forward, so I’ve been shipping DMitch/Boo/Bradley and Green to balance everything since there’s not much good SF/PF guys in the waiver so I’m

    Bradley has been a pain in the ass in the past months and it’s very hard to trade him tho

    Trade offer #1

    DMitch + Bradley for Tobias Harris + Reddick

    Trade offer #2

    Boo + Bradley for JJ and Markkanen

    Trade offer #3

    Dray + Boo + Bradley for Nance + PG + Elf

    Trade offer #4

    Dray + DMitch for Capela + PG

    What’s your thought on DMitch for RoCo? Should I go for it?

    • Renz says:
      (link)

      @Renz:

      Markieff, Wes Johnson, G. Hill, Josh Jackson, Roberson, Winslow, Crawford, Kennard are the guys available in the wire.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Renz: Ha! Thanks Renz! Much appreciated and good to have you back!

      I like the Allen transaction.

      As for the trades, I think I like #2 the best.

      I’d rather keep DMitch and bolster your forward position with the other trade.

      • Son

        Son says:
        (link)

        @Son: Josh Jackson is probably worth a pick up.

        • Renz says:
          (link)

          @Son:

          Who’d you rather bump off for Josh Jackson?

          • Son

            Son says:
            (link)

            @Renz: My initial thought was Biyombo

              @Son:

              Got it! Great minds think alike 😉

                Son says:

                @Renz: Ha! Great is debateable, but no denying that we are alike

      • Renz says:

        @Son:

        Thanks mate! Reading your stuff is already part of my morning routine! That’s why I feel something is missing whenever I fail to do it.

        Thanks! Been wanting to stash him, If he lives up to the hype, he would be a good replacement as well for BBB due to nearing return of Vuc.

        Ayt. Will try to push for it 😉

        Noted of this. Do you have list of forwards who I can target? I’d try to trade other guys.

        Also, I think Green at some point will have a rest since they’re not much bothered by the playoff spot.

        • Son

          Son says:

          @Renz: Ha! I’m glad to keep you company on the shitter. Seriously, though, much appreciated Renz. That’s what makes it all worth it.

          As for targets, do you mean trade or waiver wire? Tough to say because I don’t know who’s available.

          I wouldn’t worry about Green. Including this year, he’s missed a total of 20 games in his six year career and GS have not employed Spurs Siestas in the past.

            @Son:

            You the real MVP in fantasy and real life! You deserve a seat in all-star lol

            To trade, any prospects on who to target?

            Ayt. Got it! Thanks a lot!

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              @Renz: Ha! F the seat man! I want on the court!

              Collins is the guy that stands out to me.

              • Renz says:
                (link)

                @Son:

                F yeah! Who wouldn’t want to be part of it? I mean that’s all star!!

                Owner of Collins seem reluctant to any trade lol. Do you think it will be worth it dropping BBBB for Markieff?

                • Son

                  (link)

                  @Renz: Ha! No doubt.

                  There are very few players I’d drop for MEHkieff

    Hey man nice work pulling double duty on the baseball/bball front. Bball question: I need to drop one: Beasley, Bogdan, or Tyler Johnson. Who am I dropping?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Joel: Thanks Joel! Tough one. Keeping Bogdan for sure. Probably also TJ, but much would depend on your forward situation.

  8. Joel

    Joel says:

    BEasley is balling tho.. He’s a walking bucket. Kuzma, Favors, John Collins, Ellington… A lot of late mid round guys

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Joel: I know. That’s what it’s so tough. You will probably appreciate my blurb for Beasley tomorrow. With that said, the minutes are a concern. That’s a nice collection of players you listed.
