    No stocks, 3 TOs for a big, and missed a third of this free throws. Drop time.
  2. Unlikely to happen, but if KD misses the OKC game on Wednesday, we could be looking at another absurd line.
  3. Derrick Favors 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    As someone with no shares of this guy, anyone who has him, should be looking at him purely as a high potential, but short term rental. If you can get someone with Top 80 potential for him, take it and run. Once Gobert is back, Favors'll be back to low end/WW fodder value as Gobert eats up anything, and Favors minutes get marginalized cause the team won't do as well with both of them on the floor cause that doesn't work in today's NBA. He just can't play with Gobert. We're not talking about a AD-Cousins type of front court here where they can both stretch the floor and are decent passers as well. Favors and Gobert are old-school conventional centers - it reminds me of Detroits attempt to play Monroe and Drummond together a few years ago. It didn't work for them, it won't work for Utah now. The NBA game has changed.
  4. Spencer Dinwiddie 2017-18 Season Outlook

    If Russell misses a prolonged stretch, Dinwiddie could be lining up to be a WW pickup of the year candidate. Tonight's line, especially against the competition, is really impressive.

    Markeiff did the same thing for me, but Steph wrecked that patio up.

    The phases of being an AD owner
  7. Joel Embiid 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Um, the point of this forum is to share the feeling of living in fear at all times while being an Embiid owner with all other owners. That's like Rule #1 of this thread. And yea, that was really bad judgement. Think it was just frustration from the double-team barrage that GSW was piling on him in that quarter.
  8. Joel Embiid 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I did. It was an injury scare. Don't tell me you didn't go 'oh s---' when he slammed head first into that padding and then grabbed his head immediately.
  9. Markieff Morris 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Top 80. His stats may not pop out, but he provides across the board value in 9-cats. Definite must-own imo. With him playing center minutes too, 1-1-1 with 14-6 isn't out of the question.
  10. Joel Embiid 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Man, right after his best game of the season, he gets injured. Rough week with both AD and Embiid getting injured
  11. Jamal Murray 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He has 1 block on the season IIRC. And not exactly lighting it up in the steal department either.
  12. Jamal Murray 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    The problem is that when his shot isn't falling, he becomes pretty much useless. His last 2 weeks are an ideal example of that: Guess his 9-cat ranking over the last 2 weeks based on the falling stats and the fact that he's a PG: .519 FG%, .846 FT%, 17 PPG You'd immediately think he's probably around Top-50. But he's actually the 100th ranked 9-cat player in the last 2 weeks, despite those solid %, because he gets a combined 1.2 stls/blks per game, and only 2 asts coupled with 2.8 TOs a game. And that's with his shot actually falling! If his shot goes away, which it has for stretches, then he doesn't contribute anything else of value to my roster.
  13. Jamal Murray 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Dropped him last week and someone grabbed him soon after. Saw his line. Absolutely zero regrets. The guy is incredibly inconsistent and is more of an SG than a PG from a stat perspective, so very happy to not have to worry about this guy anymore.
  14. Anthony Davis Season Outlook 2017-2018

    2 weeks is a reasonable timeline. Can be longer at times. Just got him in a trade too.
