  1. Still not sure why everyone came after me in September for saying that Dipo was likely regress and that he shouldn't be taken ahead of Kawhi/PG/Lillard. If you're drafting someone in the first round, proven first round value > one year of first round value
  2. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    If anything I'd be more worried about an athletic guard coming back from an injury like this than Cousins. An athletic guard relies on speed/explosiveness to produce, whereas Cousins relies more on skill and size. He doesn't need to be able to beat someone off the dribble, he'll be more than capable of shooting, passing, and backing down
  3. Kevin Love 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Ariza has been top 40 per game in 9-cat over the last month and BBM projects him at 60th overall. Bagley is ranked outside the top 180 per game and BBM projects him at 150th overall. Since you're definitely not keeping either of them, I certainly wouldn't be holding onto Bagley.

    Wait you're holding Bagley and Tristan when Ariza is on the wire?
  5. Kevin Love 2018-19 Season Outlook

    They absolutely do need to showcase him if they want to maximize their returns. Nobody is doubting the talent of a healthy Kevin Love, but teams will want to see that he is indeed healthy and capable of playing at that level before giving up a lot for him
  6. Kevin Love 2018-19 Season Outlook

    https://www.cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf/2019/01/kevin_love_unsure_of_when_he_w.html "I think just kind of go with the symptoms," Love said. "Like if I'm feeling anything we'll just kind of keep it at that pace, just a progression from here. But I think I'll get more of an idea of that over the next couple weeks and then from there there will be even more progression and get out on the court. I don't know when I'll be able to go one on one, two on two, three on three, but I think that's all part of the next few weeks I'd say." "I would just hope to come back whether it be right before All-Star break, after All-Star break just things to start trending in the right direction and give the fans and this organization some hope for better times that are going to be here." It appears Love's return will coincide with the NBA trade deadline, which is Feb. 7. By rule, he can't officially be traded until Jan. 24 -- six months after signing his new deal. But his name has once again surfaced in trade rumors.
  7. No keep your guys, Bagley is overrated in fantasy
  8. Is this a no brainer? WHIR

    Yes, take it and run
  9. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Not for everyone, Cousins has a great playoff schedule in my 6-team playoffs as it looks like I'll have a bye for Cousins' 2-game week. Top 2 seeds get byes and Cousins goes 2-5-3, so both Bryant and Cousins would play 8 games for me.

    Hes been practicing and scrimmaging for a while now, I expect his conditioning to be fairly up to speed. As an owner of both, I prefer Cousins 100%

    Think you messed up here, Dunn's upside is much higher
  12. He was meh when he was starting at SF alongside Wall/Beal this year, but has been pretty good when starting at PG. Also a lot of his value comes from his efficiency, so just looking at pts/reb/ast doesn't tell the whole story
  13. Sato is definitely an enticing add in category leagues
  14. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Depends on how your settings, how you're doing in the standings, and whether or not you have IR... I personally wouldn't do that as I'm in clear first and would rather take a chance on Cousins' upside. I don't expect Tatum to finish higher than 50ish overall
  15. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Haha my bad, definitely came across a little heated. I think the main post is very misleading from that perspective. Brand definitely declined, but it's difficult to tell how much of that was due to age versus the injury. As a non-dynasty owner, my only concerns are how Cousins will perform immediately after the injury, and Brand is an example of someone who was able to immediately come back and play well in comparison to his old self, though dropped off in the following years. I don't expect Cousins to be the same player as his pre-injury self, but he's definitely capable of 18/10+ this season
