  1. Buddy Hield 2018-2019 Outlook

    2nd Q still midway and Buddy already with a complete line. Let's see what we end up with...
  2. Lauri Markkanen 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Yeah, right now Lauri matched up against Myles Turner. Turner faring well. Just blocked Lauri. edit. Lauri also holding his own. What a line already... *thumb up* edit 2. Now Wendell Carter Jr. in at the C... Or is it Lauri against Sabonis at C, and WCJ against Myles...?
  3. Lonzo Ball 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Me oh my... the FG%
  4. Waiver Wire Gem(s) of the Year 2018-2019

    Of those mentioned, JJJ, Bojan Bogdanovic, Sabonis, LeVert, McGee, Danny Green, Bamba, Bagley, Dinwiddie, Crowder & KCP were drafted in my 12 teamer (13 players, snake). Obviously not the case in every league. Bogdanovic, Crowder and Green were last round picks, Dinwiddie second last.
  5. Waiver Wire Gem(s) of the Year 2018-2019

    (Didn't find a thread on this yet. Delete if one actually already exists.) Who do you got? Can additionally mention the size of the league. A few shouts as of now: Harrell Siakam Warren Standard (?) 12 team 9 cat.
  6. Khris Middleton 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Was absolutely on fire the past three games before this one. Loving the consistency. Steady 2nd round, not much to fault him for.
  7. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Jumped from Cedi to Harrell a good while ago, but browse this thread every now and then to see if Cedi "has awakened". Peak comedic value lately. Some gem one-liners etc.
  8. Caris LeVert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Only after the waiver clears will you be able to see who put in a claim. Before that it'll be in the dark.
  9. Shai-Gilgeous Alexander 2018-19 season outlook

    Hah.. Was about to make a post with exactly this same word to describe how he looks on the court. Calm and collected.
  10. Javale McGee 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    He was averaging 27.1 minutes for October and so far 23.8 for November. The latter probably closer to what we will see going forward, but let's see how Chandler will hold up. With less minutes compared to October, should also be a slight dip in numbers, but nothing too drastic, especially when you consider where he was picked. Should still be nice value. Boost in blocks and FG%. Ultimate sell high probably behind though for the moment. A Chandler injury could open another peak trade opportunity.
  11. Javale McGee 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    But it still could be that with the medication he has the condition under control and can function normally. Read an article about DeAndre Jordan who also has asthma, and it was mentioned that in Denver there's 17% less oxygen in the air, and in Utah 11%, and that DJ needs the asthma pump mostly in those places. Probably wasn't the ideal place for McGee to play with his condition (Karl had mentioned McGee frequently using the inhaler). Richard Jefferson was another asthma case. Rodman, and Harden as well. For reference: https://www.healthline.com/health/famous-athletes-with-asthma#1 (You have NFL players, decathlete Olympic winners, marathon Olympic winners, swimmers, skiers, etc.) https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/apr/29/elite-athletes-asthma-simon-yates-team-sky-swimmers https://www.nba.com/clippers/news/jordan-overcomes-asthma-even-altitude https://eu.usatoday.com/story/sports/nba/2017/04/06/cleveland-cavaliers-richard-jefferson-severe-asthma-nba-champion/100119570/
  12. Javale McGee 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Asthma could be a non-issue as long as he is using his medication. I.e. the medication gets him to work just like any other person. Just saying that with medication it could technically be like this. Like he himself was saying that it doesn't affect his play. Could of course also be that he's downplaying the issue.
  13. Derrick Rose 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Final play as well! Takeover..
  14. Karl-Anthony Towns 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Towns back in biz.. Shot didn't fall in the crunch, and FG% took a hit. Also quite a few TO's. But good stuff overall. Good amount of hustle. 9 offensive boards. Sealed the deal with a few free throws, but Butler delivered the true dagger with a 3pt over Rondo.
