  1. Normally I'm the type to say stay patient, but feeling pretty confused about Spoelstra benching him. Gonna give it a couple more games but he's the first on the chopping block if some trades go down.
  2. Ricky Rubio 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    lol @ everyone who shat on me on Jan 23 for point out he was playing better and saying I believed in him. Me & Rubz laughing all da way to the playoffs.
  3. WW Help WHIR

    why does this make me feel so weird
  4. Too close to call. I do think you'll have Vuc back and in form, so that helps. You're a little less top-heavy too, Jamal Murray and Tyler Johnson will be solid for you. I'd try to trade for guys with good playoff schedules, especially if you have a sense of what week you'd be facing him.
  5. Kawhi Leonard DROPPED (WHIR)

    If you feel your odds of making the playoffs are 60% or higher, I say definitely add him. I've withstood rostering much worse injured players and been grateful for doing so by the end of the season.
  6. Which side? Whir

    I agree, J-Rich because he's the best player in the deal. Both sides are defensible for sure though.
  7. Who to drop for Kyle Anderson?

    flip a coin lol
  8. Trading for bledsoe. Whir as always!!!

    I'd take Bledsoe all day.
  9. Klay or Wiggins?

    Klay is an elite fantasy asset, and Wiggins is barely rosterable. No offense, but if this is really a question for you, you're going to want to think about finding some tools that will help you begin to understand players' worth. It's annoying for everyone, including most importantly yourself, if you're relying on forums for questions like this that should be fairly obvious once you start feeling capable of doing a bit of research for yourself. basketballmonster.com is a great resource. Yahoo's player ranks are pretty good too as a starting point. You can also just compare their average stats for the season yourself. Remember that scarce stats (like 3s and blocks) are way more valuable, so Klay's 3.3 three-pointers to Wiggins' 1.4 alone makes him way more valuable. Also remember that Wiggins is shooting like 63% from free throws — anyone shooting under 70% is a pretty big liability. Both are young and have very stable roles with their team, so while those are good things to think about, they're not factors here. Good luck, dude.
  10. Drop Ingles or Favors for Marquese?

    Only if you're punting FT%.
  11. get your own thread, dude. poor form. like everyone else, i approve of this trade. unless it's a keeper league.
  12. Hi fam, I'm in a 12-team standard 9-cat keeper league. We do auction drafts, and up to three players can be kept for $5 more than their cost at the previous year's draft. I am in 3rd, a game out from 1st. My Marc Gasol ($12) & Tim Hardaway ($12) for his Klay Thompson, Carmelo Anthony, Dennis Smith Jr ($20). The numbers in parantheses is what guys will be able to be kept for in the 2018 draft. As you can see, Hardaway is a nice keeper and Gasol is probably one of the best keepers in our league. DSJ is a nice keeper but not amazing at $20 (if you're not familiar with auction leagues, the numbers might take some getting used to). I already traded away Robert Covington ($13) and Jayson Tatum ($6) so I'm feeling iffy about giving up all my best keeper dudes. So I'm basically trading away my future to win now. Is it worth it for improving my odds of winning it all this year? Any thoughts? my team is as follows. Don't let CP3 as the only point guard fool you, I'm actually solid in assists. Chris Paul Jimmy Butler ($51) Justin Holiday ($5) Tim Hardaway Jr ($12) Nikola Mirotic ($5) Kevin Durant Dirk Nowitzki Marc Gasol ($12) Al Horford ($24) Rudy Gobert ($35) Kelly Olynyk Danilo Gallinari (IL) I've been helping you guys out like crazy lately so thoughtful responses will be super appreciated.
  13. George Hill 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    George Hill is a perfect guy to throw at Curry, and he shoots 45% from three. I don't see how anyone could say he doesn't move the needle for the Cavs.
  14. George Hill 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He's such a fantastic fit for the Cavs and will wind up playing 30+ minutes in the playoffs. Not so much in fantasy, though. Hard to see him doing better than 15-3-4 and a steal.
