Man, what an epic game in San Antonio!  Marc Gasol hitting a preposterous buzzer-beater to put it in OT, then Tim Duncan makes this rim job to put it into 3OT… Crazy man.  Two things – 1 – Sean Elliott is maybe my favorite commentator in the NBA and B – look at Marco Belinelli just bowl over Courtney Lee in that second highlight…  Strike!  Haven’t see a Lee update for an injury, so stay tuned there…

I guarantee you that Gregg Popovich was fuming like President Snow that this game kept going on, and on, and on and… Kinda like book series that have the final book broken into into two movies.  I mean The Hunger Games: Mockinjay – Part 1…?  I got confused and disinterested once Woody Harrelson stopped drinkin’.  So I guess last night’s Spurs vs. Grizzlies games was San Antonio vs. Memphis – Buzzer-beaters traded: Duncan’s Rim Job – Part 3.  Another huge game from Timmay (excluding the real fluky 5-15 FT) for 23/16/5/2/3.  Rainbow line!  Duncan really hasn’t skipped a beat this year, well except for when he’s benched with a DNP-Rest.  I know it’s hard to believe, but we’re in Week 9 of the season already!  And for H2H leagues that play standard 3-week playoffs (RCL standard), we’re almost halfway through the regular season with playoffs starting Week 21.  A game like last night is only going to make Pop go restier, so if you’re killing it at first or second in your standings, I wouldn’t mind selling high at all.  But there’s a flip side – if you’re 8 or 9 and see Duncan on a team running away with a playoff spot, it’s actually a good time to think about bringing him aboard.  He’ll be frustrating with the DNPs, but could put you over the edge if you’re hanging on the rim.  If you know what I mean…  Here’s what else went down in A Wednesday Night of NBA: OTs Galore – The Return of Hack-a-Shaq: The Revenge:

Thomas Robinson Hack a T-Rob!  Man, Blazers fans looooooovvvvvveeee him.  As Slim and I mentioned on the Pod, there was no guarantee Chris Kaman would start (and he was awful off the bench – distracted by a wife about to have baby Kaman) as Stotts went to T-Rob.  Huge 29 minutes for 15/16/1/1/1.  His energy is fantastic, but those FT… 5-15… and the Bucks at around the 2:45 mark in 4th started Hack-a-T-Rob.  If you can handle that FT drain and have a schlub to drop, sure go ahead and nab Robinson in 12ers.

Nicolas Batum Took a nasty, nasty fall after Larry Sanders gave him a cheap shot.  I’m done with Colonel Sanders – he’s a never-own for me now.  8/6/6/1/0 and Batum stayed in the game, somehow.  If you’ve been frustrated as a Batum owner, give him some props for staying in after that!

Giannis Antetokounmpo Twisted his ankle, but might’ve survived the swelling of a kankle and play tonight.  Was looking good out there too.  Maybe worth some buy-low offers after Jabari Parker‘s injury will theoretically open a little more consistent PT.

Khris Middleton Milk Duds Jared Dudley started in the Jabari vacancy, but it was Middleton who got hot and played 33 minutes.  17/3/0/3/0 hitting four treys.  The Duchess will be inconsistent, but at least more consistent minutes should be there!

Shelvin Mack The Cavs hit by The Mack Truck!  Out of control 7-8 FG (6-6 3PTM 4-4 FT) for 24/2/3 in 23 minutes.  He hasn’t done much of anything this year, but while everyone rushed to grab Dennis Schroder with Jeff Teague likely out a few games with a bum hammy, we kinda forgot about Anthony Mackie.  Not much to do with Mack, really no leagues he should be owned, but Schroder for a very solid 10/2/10 in 22 minutes.  One of the fastest dimebags this year!

Al Horford Razzball is his bulletin board material!  20/2/4/0/2 on 10-14 FG.  It’s nice and all, but TWO REBOUNDS?!  The elite-boarding might be in the past…  Still a sell-high…  Although if he grabs 15 boards next time out, I’ll be convinced he reads us…

LeBron James David Blatt compared him to Gordon Gekko in postgame… Ummm…  It was an embarrassing loss, but maybe should’ve gone to another reference!

Kevin Love Almost sat out with flu-like symptons, but gutted it out to be a part of that 127-98 travesty.  Mama love needs to make him some chicken soup!  That sentence sounds like some sort of weird milf come-on…

Goran Dragic He’s the man.  20/3/8/1/0 on 8-17 shooting after missing two games.  Looked fantastic out there in the portions I watched.

Alex Len Another start, and was decent enough for 10/4/1/1/1 on 5-6 FG.  But all of that in only 19 minutes.  At one point, the Suns were running Dragic, Eric Bledsoe, Isaiah Thomas, Gerald Green and P.J. Tucker.  No joke.  Tucker was gaurding Al Jefferson… It was so weird…  Hornacek is so in love with guards he’ll play 5 at a time!

Lance Stephenson Remember early on when I said he was a must-sell?  The Hornets can’t get rid of him fast enough.  Took two more treys and I yelled at the TV.  Missed them both, but there was no need to include this sentence…

Rajon Rondo The trade rumors are swirling like a clogged toilet!  In that they’re not moving that fast and who knows if anything will end up going through…  Mavericks and Rockets are banging on the door.  I’m going to go 100% against-type here…  I usually say I don’t react to trade rumors until they’re through, and I usually say Marcus Smart isn’t that great for fantasy.  But if you need PG depth in a 12er, I could see worse stashes.  Sat out last night with minor Achilles soreness, so the window is still there.  C’s sound like they’re done with Rajon.  Even though he went 13/7/15 last night…

Kelly Olynyk 15/6/1/1/2 is pretty solid, especially hitting two treys AND Tyler Zeller playing well as the starter (4-5 FG 10/7/0/1/2).  I’m starting to buy in a little more on Mr. Nazareth.

Evan Fournier The Virgin couldn’t hit a trey!  First time this year without a triple, with a streak of 32 games I think it was dating back to last year.  Still goes 13/2/4/2/0 and continues to be a pleasant surprise.

Josh Smith – Plays only 19 minutes as he didn’t get off the bench after sitting down very early in the 3rd quarter with his 4th foul.  The 5-21 Pistons just are so frustrating…  Let’s hope he gets dealt to the Kings, which has been a rumor.

Jodie Meeks A big reason I haven’t been able to buy Meeks, those darned Pistons.  Only 20 minutes of 9/2/0/0/0 shooting 2-8 with a trey.

Andre Drummond Was playing like a beast, so fortunately Stan Van realized he needed to keep him in.  Only Piston to play over 29 minutes going for 41.  19/24/1/4/3.  Better late than never!

Chandler Parsons What back issue?!  Missed a couple, returned Tuesday, then kills it in the second game of a back-to-back for 32/7/2/2/0 on 10-17 shooting with four treys and 8-9 FT.  Better late than never!

Devin Harris Still by far the PG to own on Dallas.  Unless they get Rondo!  8/3/9/3/0 with two treys.  Loved having him for this game in one of my RCLs; he’s out there everywhere!  Rather Harris over Jose Calderon.  Said it on the Pod yesterday and feel even better with it after last night.

Rudy Gobert The battle of Slim’s teams!  Although Jazz ended up making it a trouncing…  Gobert still had some value with Derrick Favors (33 minutes of 11/6/1/1/ – just good seeing play that kind of run off the kankle) back, going 6/9/1/1/2 in 19 minutes.  Unfortunately it’s not enough minutes for him to stay relevant…  It’s time for a French Revolution to get him playing!

Dwyane Wade Partying like it’s 2010!  Seriously, hadn’t scored 42 points since 2010…  The rest of the Heat scored 45.  Yikes.

Chris Andersen – Birdman started, and couldn’t get a block…  6/9/0/1/0, but with all these injuries, might keep starting.

Mason Plumlee Tearing apart the Luminescent Lithuanian!  23/8/2/0/2 on 9-13 shooting.  He has the ugliest FT stroke I thing I’ve ever seen.  It’s this confidence lacking, weird, ball-slipping-out-of-his-hand approach…  I thought Dookies were smart!  5-11 from the stripe.

Zach Randolph Goromotaro!  Helps when you play 48 minutes in the 3OT game, but still…  21/21/1/2/0.  Dubdubs, or in this case, a dubdubdubdub is all he does.

Mike Conley So money.  14/8/10 in a near trip-dub.  Sometimes boring is good on draft day!

Vince Carter Season-high 18 points and decade-high 41 minutes.  18/3/3/0/0 with 5 treys, but Tony Allen had to sit with a pirate patch, so nothing much to see here.

Danny Green 52 minutes!!!!  Rainbow line!!!!  Seven 3s!!!!  Wild game.  25/7/3/2/5 and continuing to kill it.  The #Occupy D Greens have been huge this year!

Manu Ginobili – 21/8/8 in a near tripdub, playing 41 minutes!  That’s close to double his MPG…  The Spurs play again Friday, and wouldn’t be surprised at all if he’s sat again.

Boris Diaw – Yet another beneficiary of this marathon game.  “Is it safe????”  17/13/5 with three treys.  “Diawwwwwwww!”

Cory Joseph Kept getting subbed in-and-out of the OTs like a yoyo!  8/6/5/1/0 and holding his own for deep-league usability while Tony Parker is out.

James Harden One night, two OT games!  Great video… Beard had a rough 4th quarter, but otherwise dominated for 41/4/10/2/0 and 18-21 FT.  I hope there’s a steakhouse in Houston with a menu item called “Seared The Beard”.

Patrick Beverley Is a god amongst mere mortals.  12/12/5/3/0 all with no TO.  Plus 6-6 FT after entering the game at 54% from the line (total small-sample fluke though…  But ESPN tried to make it sound like he’s a bad FT shooter even after two 80% FT seasons to start his career!).  I’ve heard he’s still out there in some leagues….  Gimme!

Dwight Howard Was questionable, but ended up playing on the bum knee for 24/16/1/0/4.  10-15 FT too!  The ESPN broadcast proceeded to show him make 8 of 10 during shootaround…  Sure because that’s the same!  I’ve been really ESPN ranty, I need to calm it down… 4 more TO and was 8-17 FT the game before.  Back-to-back 3+ block games since the injury looks saucy and all – still a sell-high.

Kenneth Faried Back into the starting line-up, and the Nuggets had no clue what to do with Dwight.  Timofey Mozgov got into foul trouble quick, as did Jusuf Nurkic.  So at times it was Manimal vs. Superman in the greatest comic book/Syfy movie idea ever.  11/11/2/0/0 for Faried including a massive putback dunk late in the 4th, but had a bone-headed TO late.

Ty Lawson – The Denver Dispenserer!   Dispensery-er?  Anyway, dimebag with 16 assists and played 47 minutes.  Given 5 OT minutes in there, but those kankle koncerns are well in yesteryear.

Danilo Gallinari At one point he was legit Mugatu “that Galo is so hot right now!”  Was 4-5 with three treys, but ended 4-8.  26 decent minutes of 16/2/2/1/0 with four treys and 4-5 FT, but with Wilson Chandler still playing great (23 Pts 5 treys), it’ll be tough for Galo to volleyball him out of the line-up.

Lavoy Allen Whoa, Lavoy ya Boy!  12/14/2/0/3 in 31 minutes off the bench and shows why I liked him!  This is still mostly a fluke though, as Roy Hibbert looked like 2nd-half 13-14 Hibbert against DeAndre Jordan last night (DJ for 15/23).  Only 16 minutes for Hibby, but the days ahead should be more shibby.

 

Streamers/DraftKings Picks:

Nikola Mirotic (13% owned) – Maybe-minutes-Mirotic!  The Bulls are up against the laughing stock of the NBA in the Knicks, so there is all the reason to sit Joakim Noah one more game (although he said he’ll return tonight, but ya never know), and to sit Taj Gibson who is on the injury report with a kankle.  And either way, even if both play you’d imagine Tibs would pull them out when this gets out of hand.  “Run em into the ground, Niiiiiikoooooollllaaaa!  Speaking of, my voice sounds like The Exorcist during a projectile vomit spray, I could use a Ricola…”

Khris Middleton (16% owned) – Back-to-back K-Midd picks!  Solid last night, and may have even more upside if the Bucks sit the Alphabet off his ankle roll.  Put up 28.75 points on DraftKings on my winning team last night!  Played in a $1 contest and upped it to $3, lobster is on me!

 

Thanks for reading everyone, and we’ll see you tomorrow bright and early!

    1. Dropped kaman for nurkic. Kaman is just too lame with bland upside, while nurkic is like a mini Vuc. However, gallo “exploded” and is still a FA. Is he worth getting for nurk?

    2. Is gobert worth a hold in a 14 teamer?

    3. Dropped that bum norris to stash smart in a 16teamer. Gallo still free. Opinion on who is better to own?

    Thanks

      @Hamtime: 1. Hah, um depends on needs. 3s/pts Gallo, all around everything else, Au Jus. 2. Probably not… 3. Smart def has the upside. Depends on if you need production now or can afford to burn a spot/have no injuries

  2. Slim

    Slim says:

    I should really stop talking about Nurkic… but I can’t! 17 min, 6/8 with 2 steals is by no means 12er worthy but he’s so much better than Mozgov already. Last night Mozgov was -9 in +/- and Nurkic was +17. Still though 5 fouls last night is right there with his per36 of like 10 fouls so he is no where near ready for even 24 min per game. For comparison sake I’d rather Gobert even with Favors back.

    It was fun to watch the Jazz v Heat even if I was the only one watching it. Gordon Hayward is everything I thought he would be. The preseason post I felt the best about was Hayward v DeRozan. Even when DeRozan was healthy he wasn’t cracking top 100, Hayward is far and away the better fantasy player. Not even a discussion anymore.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: We’ll talk some Nurkic today, but fouls 4 and 5 were utter bs. I think nurkic has more upside, but yeah tough to not take Gobert. I think DeRozan is better, END DISCUSSION!

    1. I’ve been waiting for your buy-low sell-high thread for a while now, but while it’s not there yet, could you give me some of your quick buy low targets as of now? Besides Ken Faried though, who are good targets in trades? Pls pls pls help (reason for buy low: I want to stash KMart and wanna free up a roster space via trade)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Irvin: Yeah Dan A had to skip this week. Some buy lows for me – Giannis, Jordan Hill (but risky), Batum (also risky), Kemba Walker (a lot of frustrated owners and Lance is getting shopped/hurt for 2 games), Cousins if you’re bold, but owner might not like an offer right when he’s coming back

    My fantasy darlings are poised to carry me to the promised land.

    I offered Horford, Tobias, MCW for Danny Green & James (Beard) Harden.
    He swiftly rejected, a-hole…. LOL

      @Scott: Yessir, thanks for the support on those! Been a fun little addition this year 🙂 I don’t like that he’s Pts/Reb only… Kinda turning into Zach Randolph with some inconsistency. Love the %S, so that makes him valuable, but I dunno if the black hole of Ast/Stl/Blk ever come…

        Als would you drop Luol Deng for KJ McDaniels

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Boom Shakalaka: Yup! Def would go that way. Whewww tough one. With Bosh hurt I would hold out for Deng upside, even though he was brutal yesterday

    So is it the kaveman or is it mason plumlee to own? I am winning consistently so I can afford a stash (even though I already have t rob). I think plumlee will be a winner at the end of the season?

    1. tempted to pull the trigger on my wall+melo for lowry+jrue. VERY scared of melo potentially shutting it down this season, and a jrue, lowry, kemba guard rotation will be solid for fts, assts, at/0. i love wall, but is this enough to accept?

    2. melo or jimmy butler?

    3. tross for gobert?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. Nah I couldn’t do that, you’re giving up the best PG in the deal too. I’d need more. 2. Melo still. 3. Depends on needs, probably Ross, trust the role more

      • Hamtime says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: despite all the shutdown news today, you still go melo side? 16man/11cat btw. Thanks!

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Hamtime: Yeah because still with that it’s not like he’s gonna be sat all year. And the big thing with 1 is giving up the best PG in the deal as well. Melo for just Lowry? Sure I’d do that.

  16. Joe says:
    (link)

    If Taj doesn’t play and/or if Noah is back and healthy (by Noah standards) I’d want to drop Taj since my league is somewhat shallow. Who should I pick up as his replacement?

    David West, JJ Redick, Enes Kanter, DeMarre Carroll, Alec Burks, Matt Barnes, Wesley Johnson, Robert Covington, or George Hill?

    10-team, 9-cat, 3-keepers h2h league.

    Melo (1), Durant (2), Conley (3), M.Gasol (4), Matthews (5), Holiday (6), Noel (7), Tyreke (7), MCW (8), IT2 (9), Gibson (w)

    My team is fairly strong in all areas except FG% and assists. My PGs are Conley and Beverly. Who are some guys I should be attempting to trade for to get assists? I’m wondering if FG% is a lost cause at this point in the season.

      @fields: H2H or roto league? Marcus Smart could be a good stash. Trades – ummm, Collison? Been cold the past few.

      • fields says:

      @jcg: Depends on league size, 10 or 12 probably keeping Jrue

    You guys say “if you can get a top 50 contributor” and the like. How do you guys know who is a top 50 contributor? where can I find that information?

        @JB Gilpin: big big help JB muchacho. Thank you.
        P.S. Random thought alert. I think you guys could find a sponsor for the podcast if you wanted to. Thought about it, just throwing it out there just in case it helped

          @yan yala: Any time man! Yeah we’ve thought about it, but we’re going to continue to lay the groundwork first since we’re still newborns 🙂

    Got offered Melo for my Tobias. Would you pull the trigger even with the threat of Melo getting shut down at some point? How about a counter with Tobias for Jrue?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @PJ: I’d have to take Melo, would take Jrue too. If I needed more PG stats I’d do the counter, but he’s probably only interested in unloading melo

    Hi Guys,
    At this point, what are your projections for Sully for the ROS? Do you think he was over-achieving earlier this season, especially since Kelly Olynyk had a slow start?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mari: Definitely think he was overachieving, but where his season average stands now seems about right. Maybe take away a couple treys

      • Mari says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Then that’s a pretty good average, methinks.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Mari: Yup he’s solid, and should get a little more rock with Rondo gone, in terms of usage

    Is Favors and MCW too much to give up for Wall in a pts league? How about Favors and Tobias?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @NimsheyPOBlo: Nope I don’t think so! I’m not in a Pts but I think MCW is out-doing Tobias by a good bit, I would start with the 2nd one

  27. jcg says:

    Marcus Smart worth a stash? Would have to drop Jordan Hill, Dieng, Wilson Chandler, or Covington

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jcg: I mention above my thoughts on Smart, but not dropping any of those guys for him 🙂

    Hello JB,
    Nice read as usual!
    11er 9cat Roto. Drop Lin for Smart? I’m on top with few extra games played, so I can stash.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @tokyofantasy: Thanks for reading man! Yup that I would do especialy since you can afford the stash. And super especially since Lin has been brtual haha

    JB– i guess there are reports going around that Marc Gasol was seen limping after last night. given his history worth trying to sell high on him now? would you do any of these trades:

    A) jrue + gasol + sullinger for wall + millsap
    B) m gasol + jrue + sully for harden + varejao
    C) m gasol + jrue + sully for lillard + favors (preferably) or chandler
    D) Gasol + Jrue + Sully for CP3 + Taj
    E) Gasol + Jrue + knight for Curry + Hibbert

    Feel free to let me know if im dreaming with any of them. Thanks!

    its an 8-cat weekly 10-teamer. my team is currently: conley, holiday, knight, rubio, durant, #ODG, sully, t jones, boogie, m gasol, covington, STAT

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: A – Nah not dreaming but doubt he takes B) Same, and actually might be a bit of an overpay. Close though. C) That seems very reasonable for both sides, prob wouldn’t do for Chandler. D) Probably not gonna take, but a fine offer E) Same as D. All are pretty close except A to me. Any time!

      • Shaft says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thanks! offered trade C which was rejected. they countered with Melo for Conley. I dont really like Melo. And with rubio atill out id need to drop someone to grab another guard. best available would be Corey Brewer, Lou Wil, Chalmers, Lavine, Mo-Will, C. Lee, TRoss.

        what if i counter with Conley + Sully for Melo + Chandler. Then drop Amare for Lavine (or one of the other G eligible guys)? Would you take that?

        id ideally try and move melo, but is it too risky given all the news around him?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Shaft: I dunno man, thinking about Conley though. I don’t wanna drop STAT if I can… BUt that trade is fine with me. It’s risky either way – to trade him now or hold! Haha

          • Shaft says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: im too scared of melo’s knee. would you do conley, gasol and sully for lillard, favors and then pick up Olynyk? Or am i not really making my team that much better. Or maybe lillard and howard. but then try to move howard because my team is built to win FT%?

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Shaft: Yeah I def like that move, Lillard is playing unreal. Not doing the Howard one, he’s tough to trade.

    Anyone’s input helps: looking at trading cp3 & Marc gasol for Curry & Bosh. Supposedly bosh doesn’t have a tear and I like curry & bosh playoff schedule better. Currently in 2nd place and play worst team in the league next week so I have an extra week buffer for bosh to recover?
    Thoughts please amigos

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mic C: Yup I agree, def taking it if you can get Curry!

  31. Magones says:
    (link)

    Trying to decide between T Zeller (who I have now), Gobert and Brandan Wright. Zeller has the better %s, playoff sched and is a starter, but Gobert and Wright probably have more upside. I’m #2 so far, so I can afford a bit of stashing. Any thoughts on ROS value? This is in 8-cat H2H.

    Many thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Magones: Gobert is probably the best stash, but I think I would own Zeller still for now. Any time!

        @JB Gilpin: I don’t have the slightest idea who Matt Bevlin is but he was born in 1969 in Syracuse , New York which explains a NY accent. So Considering he’s fron NY and had the balls to move somewhere even colder I’m sure he’s a standup guy!

        • miles proudfoot. says:
          (link)

          @miles proudfoot.: also his name is Devlin, not Bevlin. Didn’t pay enough attention to that quick google search! Also, dude was apparently a play by play guy for the Bobcats back in the day, which explains why no one would’ve heard of him. Take that JB!

    RONDO TO MAVS FOR BRANDON WRIGHT, JAMEER NELSON, CROWDER AND 2 PICKS.

    time to grab jameer or marcus? should i try and sell sully for or will just become an even bigger part of the offense? will brandon wright take mins from olynyk? what to do what to do…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: Defffff Marcus. Jameer should come off the bench. I think he’ll be about the same – a couple more Pts/Ast, downgrade in FG%. Nah Wright off the bench too, more worried about Zeller overall

  34. rhirano says:
    (link)

    In light of the Rondo trade, would you drop Lance Stephenson, Jeremy Lin, or Giannis Antetokounmpo for Marcus Smart?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @rhirano: Yup would drop Lin

    Hi! For the whole year, Gobert, Len or KOQ have better prospects? What do you think?

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Lawson: I’d say Len, I think he has most PT upside

    Hey JB,

    Should I trade Horford and Draymond for Vucevic and Sanders?

    My team is punting FT% and my league has double doubles as a category. I’m thinking of declining the deal atm.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TOPSZN: Yeah I’m easily declining. Sanders is hot garbage. Actually hot garbage on fire. A nice little dumpster fire

      • TOPSZN says:

        @JB Gilpin: Haha. Well said!

    what’s up, is it a no brainer to drop Brandon Right for smart? I feel like if Wright can get 25 minutes he can be a beast. Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Osnam: what’s good man?! Yeah I’m def taking Smart, I heard the Cletics were shopping wright right away… Haha.
