Who knows, maybe devoting his soul to the lord of the Sith is what got Hassan Whiteside to where’s he’s at!

Absolutely terrible flagrant-2 last night to the back of Kelly Olynyk, hit-sticking him into the cameramen.  L3, L3!  Friend of the Podcast Mike Gallagher from Rotoworld tweeted out a great vine showing the hit from two angles, and I think that’s maybe a judo elbow he learned from Tekken.  On top of his lingering kankle issues, now we have to assume a game or two out via suspension.  Certainly doesn’t helped he tackled Alex Len a few games ago, with Whiteside’s flagrants turning into an MMA reel.  As Slim and I mentioned on the Pod, Whiteside throws his body around willy-nilly and it’s starting to catch up with him with the physical play from oppos.  Gotta control those emotions, young padawan!  “Concentrate!”  Just has to get the last few mental things together to be an elite NBA big.  Can you do that, Hassan?!  “I’ll try.”  “No!  There is no try!  Do.  Or do not.”  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball action:

Cody Zeller Left after 7 minutes with a shoulder sprain.  Unfortunately with this a blowout we didn’t get to see a clear replacement, but you’d assume if CZ misses time Marvin Williams would gets the boost.  Worth a spec add in 14ers or deeper, probably not going to 12.

Mo Williams – Know your range!  Only 1-10 from deep, but just a cold game.  The Hornets were atrocious, scoring 69 points after winning 5 straight.  Peaks and valleys!  19/0/7/1/0, and with news Kemba Walker might be back next week, it’s a smidge bleak.  That said, I’ve maintained I think Mo will have must-own value even with Kemba at full strength, much less the interim when Kemba gets eased back.

Marcin Gortat On a great run lately, putting up 20/7/0/2/0 on 9-11 shooting last night.  Big Al with no Big D!  Big Al playing more like Ft. Worth!

Dennis Schroder Wooooo!  Nice night for my stream calls.  12/2/8/2/0, and while the points were a little down compared to the previous four, it’s now 5 straight of at least 12 Pts and 6 Ast.  And did his damage in 18:31!  And with Jeff Teague going bonkers in 29 minutes with an 18/5/13 line!  It was against the terrible Kings, but still!

DeMarcus Cousins Well, hit his FT and only had one TO!  12/14/6/1/0 is good and all, but shot only 3-9 from the field and his numerous injury/illness issues accrued through the year have me a tad concerned through the duration of H2H playoffs.

Ray McCallum – Had one of his better games as a starter this year for 15/3/5/2/0.  So hard to trust though, and even in a great game (for him) and in a blowout loss (where you’d imagine the younguns get work), still only 29 minutes.  Meh.

Isaiah Thomas If Boston played it out the way they’re built right now for a whole season, IT2/3 would be the Celtics leading scorer by far.  Has a bench guy ever lead a team in scoring for the year in NBA history?  I’m gonna lean no, but we don’t factcheck!  25/1/4 with 3 treys and 8-8 FT.  Such a good move to green.  He got a couple bumps and bruises last night, but sounds like he should be OK.

Dwyane Wade Man, imagine if he could coulda gotten through the end of his career without injuries!  34/4/2 with a couple of treys last night.  But twastn’t enough for a W.

Chris Andersen – Suffered a kankle, and with Whiteside likely suspended, the Heat might have to do something nuts.  Like play Tyler Johnson or Shabazz Napier at center!

Michael Beasley In all seriousness, the Heat are going to have to play small and Beasley might get C minutes.  14/2/1 last night, on a whopping 16 shots and equally whopping 32 minutes.  Creeping up into 14er worthy and 12er streamable.

Tony Snell Mr. Hot Sauce!  Apparently what he gets called a lot…  But probably only when he’s hitting shots…  7-13 FG (4-7 3PTM 3-4 FT) 21/3/1/2/0 in a monster game given no TO.  That said, the line is empty without the treys and he’s a supreme ThrAGNOF!

Nikola Mirotic Who woulda thought that in March, Snell and Miro would have games leading the Bulls in points?!  Monster game from NikMo for 18/12/2/1/0 with a couple treys and keeping up the high-volume FT at 4-5.  Sure Taj Gibson should be back at some point, but no way Miro doesn’t stick in a big way in the Bulls rotation.

Aaron Brooks – Just can’t make up his mind if he’s a must-own fantasy PG!  Was fine for 15/4/4 with a trey last night, but that’s what he is…  Fine…  Fringy.  Kinda like a hot hippie.

Jeff Green I had my fun bashing Green most of the year, but 19/7/1 with 3 treys last night and 11+ shots in 5 straight with 16+ points in 3 straight.  He was single-digs in both of those almost every night for a while!  Might be out there in some leagues.

Anthony Davis Sheesh, after saying James Harden was pushing for #1 next year and Russell Westbrook could be #1 if Kevin Durant (for some odd reason, very unlikely obviously) wasn’t in OKC, Brow goes nutso!  I think he read yesterday’s Daily Notes and made it bulletin board material!  What NBA player doesn’t read Razzball?  43/10/6/1/2 on an absurd 17-23 FG and 9-11 FT.

Michael Carter-Williams Officially been Kidd-fixed!  Hah, of course not really, but a monster game from MCW for 25/1/7/2/0 hitting 8-17 FG and the shocking 9-10 FT.  Kidd is making him take 500 FT a practice!  With “only” 3 TO, MCW finally had a fully efficient game for a PG.  Let’s keep it rollin’!

Giannis Antetokounmpo No one will slow my O!  Or slow my RainbO!  See what I did there?!  29/5/4/3/3 hitting 11-16 FG and 7-7 FT.  This was a battle of the lanky dudes last night!  Advantage Brow, but Greek did a pretty nice Freak.

Will Barton Like I said above, good night for my streamers!  17/4/3/1/0 last night, racking up 27 minutes.  He had been playing about that range lately, but looked like Randy Foye (7/4/4) was starting to edge him out in minutes.  Not in a matchup against the Poppycockers in a 30 point blowout win!

Wilson Chandler Reportedly left early with a sore knee, but was such a horrific blowout it may have just been precautionary.

Alexey Shved – Your new Knicks primary scorer.  Hah, those Poppycockers so funny.  19/1/1/0/0 with 3 treys.  Isn’t NYC the capital of stand-up comedy?!

Brandon Knight Ughhhhhhhh.  With extra phlegm.  Suffered a really, really bad ankle injury in the 2nd quarter and didn’t return.  Crossing our fingers here (X-rays were negative), but might cost him a good chunk, if not all of the H2H playoffs.  Obviously Eric Bledsoe‘s usage should go through the roof, but interestingly T.J. Warren was reported to get SG minutes before the game and played 24 minutes for 11/2/1.  Should be looking at some extended run while Knight is out.

Alex Len Returned from a brief absence with a kankle for 10/11/0/0/1.  Did have 4 TO, but just good to see him out there.

Stephen Curry With all this “who’s #1 next year?” talk, Curry stepped it up as well!  36/6/5/4/0 with 7 treys.  Man, the top 4 or 5 next year are gonna be a shuffle!  Unlike all those boring LeBron years… Sheesh…

Shaun Livingston Wasn’t as huge, but had yet another fantasy-usable game for 7/2/4/0/2.  Those out of position blocks, doe!  Easily a great add for teams needing blocks upside even in 12ers.

Ricky Rubio Lordy, I’ll still love him forever, but his shot sure looked putrid all game.  Usually I make excuses for it, but it was flatter than Kristen Stewart!  1-8 from the field, but at least got the 12 dimes and 3 steals.

Adreian Payne – Kevin Garnett got a DNP-rest, so it’s Major Payne time!  16/15/2/2/1, and while he made some mistakes and had 3 TO, had some nice court awareness.  Could be a nice out-of-position dimer if he gets a full time starting role down the road.

Austin Rivers I’m shocked how much run he’s getting, picking up more combo G minutes than PG.  13/4/6/2/0 with a couple of treys, and blipping on the deep league radar.  Even if his five o’clock shadow looks like a tween hitting puberty.

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

Patrick Patterson (24% owned) – One of my favorite streamers this year, the Raps get the Spurs and you always play your fringy bigs against the Spurs!  Had a couple really bad games before last Sunday, but I think Pit-Pat makes it happen tonight.

Dewayne Dedmon (4% owned) – There’s still a chance Nikola Vucevic can get over his kankle in time for tonight, but with the Magic out of it for yet another season, I see no reason to rush it.  Off 11/16 and 2 blocks, Dedmon could easily have another big game against the Pacers and they’ll need his big body against Roy Hibbert/Ian Mahinmi.

 

I hope everyone had a better start to their week than my REL team (Whiteside, Knight, Wilson C)!  Thanks for dropping by, and see you tomorrow Razzball Nation!

    Would you drop jack, knight, McLemore for dwight in the hopes he’s back for the playoffs in a 10 team h2h

      JB Gilpin says:

      @NO J MAYO: If you have great G depth and desperately need a C stash, I could see losing Jack or McLemore for him, but I probably wouldn’t.

  2. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Actually incredible that you didnt write anything up on Bass! You know what, I’m gonna give you a second shot at it… go! “Woah, Bass outta nowhere in Crap Stevens’ rotation and is suddenly averaging a very useable 13.5/8/2, playing a 36min per the last 3 games. Put some lemon, dill and butter on that thang, throw it in the oven and baby, you’ve got a bake goin!”

    He’s looking to be must-own in even the shallowest of leagues, yeah? Moreso than, say, PJ Tucker and Dieng? Speaking of Apparatus, when the hell are they gonna shut Pek down over in Minny? I dont get it. Payne could be a monster off the bench in 20-25min alongside Dieng, too

    Is my Ty for Zbo or Noah a good value deal if I’m fine with asts and lookin for brds and improved %?

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: nope rather have PJ or Deing over Bass. Stevens rotations are erratic. Especially the fwd pposition. If you need the big stats i guess Zbo. I dint own any of those players so have no idea what they’re doing. ..

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: I don’t trust anything re: Boston rotations. So no, not at all must own for me. Stevens could start Olynyk tomorrow! Rather both PJ and Dieng by a pretty good margin.

      Mmmmmm Payne! Could be interesting but not yet. I doubt Pek is shut down unless he suffers a re-injury (likely though).

      I think Ty can get ya more value than those schlubs 🙂 Noah hurts %s with FT and takes tons of jumpers to hurt FG%

    trying to take advantage of darth whiteside… is trading horford and larkin for hassan and lin enough of a discount for me to do it? love what horford is doing but i think they’ll be Popped once they lock up the number 1 spot in the East.

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      Nah i rather have Horford. HW sits too much, his mins are unpredictable. I own him in 3 leagues and rather have Horford over him in every league. Plus he’s not blocking shots like he was before either. I think his ankles are jacked up. But if you wanna take the risk go ahead, I rather have the sure thing in Horford. His mins are a lock.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Sio: Yeah I think I’d rather HOrford too. Agree with @Bye Felicia: the ankle issues concern me too

    Im gonna miss the playoffs after leading the league 2 months ago. 5 injured guys, no KD… No IR SLOT. Every week no less than 5 DNP’S. This is the worst luck ive had with injuries in a single league.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Bye Felicia: Yeah KD cost me playoffs too, but I was fringy all year until the past month. KD, Jefferson was my 1/2 (lost big AL a month), drafted Jabari, got Rondo late thinking it was a steal, ughhhhh

      • Bye Felicia says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: the worst part is having to hold him. Even if he was dropable you can’t. Just hold on & pray. I should have let someone else take him in the 1st round. Oh well. .. Next year

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Bye Felicia: Yeah, that was a bad call on me. One of the most durable players in the NBA gets one injury and a timetable of missing a month, but it costs him games through the rest of the year… Ugh

    Nice write up ma men! U da best!!

    Damn hassannnn! Dude lost his mind these past few games man… Gotta focus on winning games, not winning fights! Had to pick up the nurk just in case the league decides to ban him for the remainder of the season. LMAOO. Had 9 rebs in just 22 mins, can u imagine how much more he would’ve grabbed if he played 35 mins!

    MCW been killin it recently. Dude started 2-6, then made 5 straight baskets ending the 1st half with 7/11! But was just 1-6 in the 2nd… And that 9/10 from the foul line! Fluky? Got me thinking of selling high but curry and bledsoe’s asts are down recently…

    Anyway man, thanks for everything!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Thanks man! Yeah I think he’s getting chipped away by opposing big men since Hassan is throwing his body around so much, and it’s getting back to him. You can’t come into the NBA outta nowhere and be the muscle! Haha.

      Yeah it’s tough selling MCW, everyone knows he’s a % drain most of the time. If you can get good value back I’d try the sell high, but doubt you can get much. ANy time man!

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: yea man I hope he realizes that not everyone is given the opportunity to play in the NBA man so he should stop screwing it!

        Just a few questions man.. I got 4 pgs and I love playing 3 of them weekly: curry, rjax, bledsoe, mcw.. Well we’ve already discussed about how to handle mcw but I’m kinda concerned bout bledsoe, will he finish the season strong? The dude really played well a few games after the break but has been sucking in his last 6 shooting just 44% and a whopping 4.3 tos… High TOS I don’t mind but the 5 apg over the last 6 is troubling… And curry too, he’s turned himself into a scoring machine, asts are down as well. Roster:

        PG curry bledsoe rjax mcw
        SG snell
        SF batum wiggins parsons KD(KD WHO? Mehh)
        PF faried
        C horford whiteside nurk

        1) Offer Bledsoe and Wiggins(or parsons. Mann I just love AW!!) for LEONARD?

        2) or sell high both MCW and The Darkside after 2 more games of good production for Cousins?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Dante Green: Well with Knight hurt, can’t be anything but excited for E Bled right now.

          1. Given PG depth and the fact you don’t play one, sure I like those moves. Kawhi is hitting his stride and I think finishes strong.

          2. Def like this one better, getting Cuz as a superstar for not too much would be a killer move!

          • Dante Green says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Ayt.. So we will be going Bledsoe all the way, and MCW has got to be the one to go..

      @Bye Felicia: Yeah looks mad solid! Your stats up front are dominant. Ast look like a loss most weeks, but that’s fine. If Canaan goes mad cold, I could see him being a drop, or Mirtoic if Taj Gibson somehow takes all the minutes, which is mad unlikely. Honestly don’t see anything to tweak, you should be good!

      @Frank White: Yeah Slim and I discussed that, but since the calls are also for daily leagues, we kept it for daily

  8. Clay says:
    (link)

    JB! I could definitely use some advice, before I shift my focus to your work in the baseball dep’t (my main fantasy sport). Just a reminder, 16er H2H, and playoffs begin next week.

    1. With all but 4 teams playing four games each next week (start of the playoffs), how important is it to have as many games as possible for a schedule like next week? For example, I have Brooks, Clarkson, and Len, who will each be playing 3 games. I read Slim’s work in October about playoff schedules, but I need to focus on each week to squeeze out a W. Should I look into FA’s like Shved, Schroder (also plays 3), Payne, Beasley, Aminu, or Rivers? Oh and Canaan is also available.

    2. Jrue Holiday. I’ve held on to him with the slightest hope that he’ll return with the Pels so close, but is it time to drop him? Again the top FA’s are the ones above, and I tend to fall behind in assists.

    3. James Johnson. Hold or drop?

    If it helps, my roster is:
    PG: Holiday*, McCallum, Brooks, Clarkson
    SG: Covington, Hayward
    SF: T. Harris, James Johson
    PF: Love, J.Hill
    C: M.Gasol, Len, Whiteside

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clay: Wooo, baseball is almost here!

      1. Ohhhhh Canaan. He’s really the only interesting one for me. He’s played well enough to go over Brooks next week. But…

      2. I’d rather lose Holiday for Canaan. I don’t see Holiday playing this year. Probably what I’m doing up front.

      3. Yeah I’d lose JJ too. Ross has retaken the starting role and JJ’s D stats will be mad inconsistent. I think dimes is a need, I would get Schroder, I know only a 3 game week, but only other assists upside guy on your list

      • Ryan says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I’m in the same boat with Holiday man. I’ve been incredibly reluctant to drop him in my keeper league because I know that he will be swooped ASAP by one of the last place teams. I also have a first round bye so my plan is to play it by ear until week 2 of playoffs.

        Jrue is going to be reevaluated in the next day or so, I’d at least hold off on making a decision til then since you’ve already held out for so long. However, he’s likely going to take a week or more to get back into normal minutes even if he’s cleared to play. If you can’t wait that long then perhaps it is better for you to cut ties now.

        • miles proudfoot says:
          (link)

          @Ryan: Is this the Jrue Holiday support group? It’s just good to know I’m not alone. Thanks for the info Ryan, where did you hear he was going to be reevaluated so soon? If so I’ll hold out until then to drop because I’ve irrationally held until this point. Guess I’m just an optimist.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Ryan: @miles proudfoot: Hah yeah in a keeper he’s a tough drop. But in redraft in H2H, I don’t think you get much out of him by week 23.

            Last I saw he still had pain and swelling. And the Pels almost certainly out of a playoff spot I doubt he gets back to do much

          • Ryan says:
            (link)

            @miles proudfoot: Yes and welcome to the program. You have come to the right place, why don’t you introduce yourself to the group?

            To be clear, I think most teams should cut Jrue. I’m only holding out because of my league format and also because I have a bye week. Also the team who I think I’ll be playing in the second round has guys with horrible scheds like Lebron and Kevin Love.

            This is all important because I think Jrue won’t be playing at the level we have come to expect until week two of the playoffs even if the reevaluation is positive. I wouldn’t be holding him if I couldn’t afford to wait, and I also dropped him in another league where we redraft and just barely made playoffs.

            The Pels (and Holiday) confirmed that he would be reevaluated in a week six days ago. Sure he admitted that he had some swelling, but he did beat his time table for shedding the walking boot by a week. Also the Pels are theoretically in close contention for the eight seed. They’re only a half game behind OKC. I seriously doubt it stays like that for long, but that could possibly influence Jrue’s return date. (A Series of Dangerous Wishful Thinking).

    9-cat 12-team H2H My team:
    G – Rondo, Knight, Dragic, Mo-Will, Ariza
    Bigs – Durant, Draymond, Millsap, Favors, Whiteside

    I already have a spot for the playoffs (week 22-24) but my problems are the injuries and the bad performance of my guards (Rondo and Knight after their trades, and Dragic, Knight, and KD injured)

    Do I drop Mo with the return of Kemba? Do I drop Rondo and Knight (since he is injured)? Available guards are Calderon, Schroder, Vasquez, Lin, Brooks, Augustin, Canaan, PBev, Galloway
    Or should I pick up one of these players: Butler, Ed Davis, Nurkic, Snell, Bass, Wes Johnson, Len

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Larry: Nah I’d hold Mo, especially with the G injuries. I wish we had a better timetable for KNight, and since your playoffs are still 1.5 weeks out, I’d hold. Rondo vs. Brooks/Canaan/Schroder… they’re all so close that I’d probably hold and if you need help through the first week of the playoffs you can stream very easily.

      With the injuries you have, I’m leaning no Butler, but he should be back in full for week 24 in my opinion. Damn wish I could find a way to get him stashed, but too risky right now.

      Any time!

  13. Mike says:

    Payne had a problem with his foot a bone spur the first half of the season. He has a well rounded game with 3’s, blocked shots and rebounding. He should be picked up in most leagues. Whiteside and Knight I have both on most of my teams, what a terrible night last night. Whiteside needs to grow up real fast. I coached 9 years of basketball and expect other teams will be baiting him to do something dumb. He has all the talent to be drafted next year in the late 2nd round. I would take him over Drummond next year. With Drummond’s free throw percentage I don’t want him on any of my teams next year.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Yup, plus was on a team where he wasn’t looking at a role. I don’t think he’s 10 or 12er worthy though, the Wolves are still going to play KG here and there.

      Ugh, what a rough night for us man. Problem is Whiteside isn’t a great FT guy either and doesn’t get the steals. That said, probably going Whiteside as well, more like a 3rd rounder. I think Drummo has fallen a bit

    Im sitting comfortably in first place in a 10 team h2h league, and my team is
    pg: curry, lowry, clarkson, smart, lou will
    Sg, sf: korver, jimmy butler, afflalo, wilson chandler
    Pf, c: marc gasol, dieng, favors, gortat

    So im at first place by about 10 games, and this week is the last wk of the regular season, with me getting a bye next wk. Ive been stashing jimmy butler for about a week since another team dropped him, so that i would hopefully have him for week 2 of playoffs and the championship round. But Ed davis and alex len were both dropped in my league last night, and i figured i could use one or both of those guys to strengthen my bigmen stats. I was thinking of dropping afflalo and/or jimmy buckets. Should I put in both of those waivers? or should I just try to get one of those two? If so, who should i drop? Afflalo provides no stocks but has 4-4 playoff schedule and will hit threes, we all know jimmy is a stud but he has uncertain return date and has 3-3 playoff schedule.

      @Michael: Thanks for reading man! With a week 1 bye and no other injuries, I’m holding Buckets. I think he could be huge for ya to wrap up a title.

      Man, you’ve got 3PTM absolutely locked up. Totally good losing Afflalo for Len. I don’t think Pts or 3s will be troublesome at all for ya.

    10 person h2h. Is brandon knight still a hold? Ankle injury looked really bad. Or should I grab Schroeder off the wire?

      @Mak: Ohhh that’s a good one. It did look bad for Knight. Man, if you need a win this week to make the playoffs or if it really impacts seeding I would, if not I would hold

        @JB Gilpin: i have already clinched playoff spot(currently 1st). but just heard that knight was seen on crutches. im assuming he will be out atleast one week. still a hold?

          @Mak: Yup I was guessing multi-week so maybe 2, but I;’d still try to hold esp. if you have a bye

    Here’s my squad…
    Goran Dragic
    Tyreke Evans
    Gordon Hayward
    David Wet
    CP3
    Paul Millsap
    Marc Gasol

    Brandon Knight
    DeMarcus Cousins
    Nicolas Batum
    LaMarcus Aldridge
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

        @Jimmy: Kemba as a stash and Canaan are really interesting. I’m not an MKG fan I think I would lose him for Canaan, will help your 3s.

        If you have a bye for the playoffs, I’d hold onto Knight. We don’t have a timetable yet, and I’m expecting a lengthy absence, but ya never know

        • Jimmy says:

          @JB Gilpin: Thanks man, I just added Canaan

              @JB Gilpin: Wait a sec, Kemba said he’ll be back tomorrow? lol

                @Jimmy: Yeah I dunno, I might still Canaan, I really have concerns with Kemba’s PT and effectiveness with mo out there too. That said, Knight can’t walk haha. I’d swap those

    Wait Knight is gonna miss how much time? They’re saying DTD but you’re talking all the playoffs? I might drop him in my 10 team roto, pending an update from the Suns

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @dom: I’m speculating obviously. In Roto I would probably hold since standard H2H playoffs cut out the final 10 days of the year. I’m guessing it’s multi-weeks out for Knight, but we’ll see

    Hey jb! Love your guys’ podcast!
    What do you think about giving #occupy for Gay for the fantasy playoffs? I want the extra points and better ft% and i can lose the blocks.. The biggest thing holding me is the warriors great schedule..

      @JJ: Thanks so much for listening! Hmmmm that’s a great one. Gay certainly fits the need. You’re only losing one game in week 22 getting Gay so I think I like that move since you don’t need swats and helping %

      @Shaft: Hahaha, yeah sad and Stuckey was a monster tonight. Depends on standing and desperation, if you don’t have a bye I would probably do it

    razzup guys?!!! thinking of getting dwight. is it worth the gamble for next weeks playoffs? i do have drumm and blake in my team so ft punting for xur. i do have some droppable guys like kcp, henderson.

      @MAC:
      dwight has already progressed with 2on2 workout and said he feels better and more explosive all season.

        @MAC: Razzup man?! I’m not a Dwight fan at all, wasn’t particularly good when healthy, but with Kemba coming back I don’t think Hendo keeps up this pace. I’d be fine making that move, but not expecting much from Dwight ROS

          @JB Gilpin:
          tnx man! just got dwight. i think worth the risk since im already punting ft. another one, someone just dropped canaan, get him for galloway or kcp? for next weeks 1st round. tnx!

            @MAC: Sure, yeah I’d lose Galloway for him, don’t trust the Knicks guys at all haha
