    I think our definition of specialist is off. Mitch contributes in more than just blocks - his FG% is elite, albeit on a smaller number of attempts, and he could possibly average close to 9 or 10 rebounds a game from here on out. He can also average more than 10 points a game, as he scored in double figures 5 of his last 6 games. He also gets steals at a higher than average rate, and should be close to 1 a game. Specialist? Nah that's like Ed Davis, just giving you rebounds, or Ellington just giving you 3's and literally nothing else. Mitch is a beast, and contributes in 6 categories (everything except FT, Assists, and 3's).

    Based on his injury I would GUESS that he comes back and plays regular big minutes immediately and doesn't miss any time. It's a thumb. Not a knee or ankle.

    Not saying that it can't work, I've seen it both work and fail miserably. I think it lessens your chance overall to make the playoffs, but if you do happen to sneak in you have a decent chance at winning.

    Its exactly this type of mindset of "I'm guaranteed to win these 5 cats every single week" that gets you in trouble because I GUARANTEE you will absolutely not win those 5 cats EVERY SINGLE WEEK. Not bashing on you or anything so don't take it personal. I used to have the same mindset...well if I draft player xyz then I'm guaranteed to win FG etc every week. It's simply not true. There's too much variance in stats, injuries, etc. which is why I say nothing is guaranteed, and thus punting 3-4 cats off the bat = losing proposition imo. I think it's better to soft punt 2-3 cats, then make changes as the playoffs near to hard punt certain cats.
  5. Of course out of all the 8 teams it would most likely be the Clip
  6. It's only 4 games it doesnt matter who they'd be supplanting if they just keep winning. My point being is that the players and coaches don't think they're out of the playoff hunt by any means...now that could change if they start losing out the gate, but I think they keep it close til the last week or two of the season.
  7. Dude the wolves are only 4 games out of the 8 spot and 7 out from the 4th seed, plus Teague and Rose just got healthy, Ro-Co on the way, they just won 2 in a row and beat Houston. You bet they're going to be trying like crazy to get in the playoffs! I have no idea how many games he will end up playing.

    Heard it from Josh Lloyd who quoted multiple sources close to the team.
  9. Obviously you drop your worst player for anyone you pick up
  10. Marc Gasol 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Word on the street is that Gasol will eventually start and play heavy minutes...probably next game after ASB

    This is very interesting. I never punt multiple categories but am interested in learning more about your strategy. So you're going big heavy and attempting to win FG, assists, steals, blocks, TO, and trying to win 5-4 every week? Seems like an odd combination that doesn't quite make sense to me, I'd like to know which players you heavily target in this build...
  12. Mitchell Robinson 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Nothing is guaranteed no matter how well you draft.

    "MY NAME IS JEFF!"
  14. Marc Gasol 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Some things to be optimistic about... 1. Either, post ASB the lineup changes and Marc starts and plays more minutes 2. Or, he stays on the bench but his minutes increase as he learns the system 3. He stays on the bench and feasts on the second unit and keeps his defensive focus high...in the 3 games he's played he has 4 blocks and 5 steals, in under 20 min/game...
  15. Mitchell Robinson 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Mitch leads the league in blocks per 36 at 4.1. The next closest is Turner at 3.5. Can't wait to see what he can do with heavy minutes...
