  1. Tha Block is Hot - Securing Your Blocks

    In your opinion, how fluky can steals/blocks be? I'm under the impression that defense stats are usually what they are, especially over the course of a season, do you share that sentiment? Do you specifically remember (seems like you put in the work in research) a player who had a solid year from a defensive statistical output and it be an aberration?
  2. Tha Block is Hot - Securing Your Blocks

    He had the same amount of total blocks as Brandon Ingram in 11 less minutes per game last year. 13 fewer than John Wall in less than half as many minutes and 19 less than Kawhi.
  3. Top Dynasty Pick-Ups

    Some really, really deep fliers: Pascal Siakam (Ibaka is a FA this summer) Deyonta Davis (Really talented, has played solid when given the minutes this year. Slipped to the 2nd round due to injury/attitude concerns. Jam/Randolph are FAs) Paul Zipser (Has been a solid role player this year. Won't ever wow from a fantasy perspective, but cant be a solid contributor to any team) Isaiah Whitehead (One of my personal favorite players from this last draft. Outplaying a lot of PGs from the 2016 class. Can have a really good role next year) Patrick McCaw (another year of trust may earn him a more consistent role)
  4. Top Dynasty Pick-Ups

    I feel like we do this every season and it's always just the top rookies that get mentioned. These guys were either drafted in the summer or stashed early on when they showed flashes. There's no way they're even possibly end of the season stashes. No offense to any suggestion thus far, but a lot of these guys are gone in my dynasty league (and should probably be owned in most others). Typically, any rookie or young guy who is somewhat contributing on a consistent basis, has a solidified role, or is starting, even only now and then, is probably long gone in dynasty. I think Puzz (and by extension Gile) have the right idea. Malachi, PapaG, and Bogdan (if he comes over) have the chances to be very solid players in the NBA and may fall into the right situation next year. In addition to Zizic, Guerschon could have a similar role, maybe slightly less depending on which bigs leave. I do think Yabu has the chance to put up more well rounded fantasy lines though, even in less time. Guys not in this rookie class, but from the previous couple should also be considered. Vonleh is a good idea as a flier. Hasn't shown much over the years, but is only 21. And is playing really good right now. Delon Wright if available could be a really good one. Really good defensive stats, and if Kyle does end up leaving, he'll blow up. Another flier is someone like James Young. Again hasn't shown a whole lot in his limited NBA time, but he is crazy young, and has played well as of late. If Montrezl was dropped after Capela came back, that could be another guy to look at. I believe Nene is on the final year of his contract. If Harrell locks down that back-up 5, he's shown he can produce in limited minutes. Young guys who have under performed since being drafted might be good trade targets. Exum, Mudiay, Stanley Johnson, Kris Dunn, etc. If they can be gotten for the right price, would definitely be worth the gamble.
  5. He also was -11 and had 3 fouls in that 5 minutes. OKC has a bigger front line and Skal is coming off a 32 point performance. The biggest question mark about Skal from day 1 was his strength. Most 4s he's been matched against lately have been smaller/not inside players. He hasn't so much corrected his problem area as he has adjusted to NBA play. Fortunately most teams don't play like OKC much anymore. Think he'll be alright in the long run. This was mostly due to match up and finally getting put on the scouting reports.

    I'm typically not one to look at +/- on a game-by-game basis, but the fact that everyone else is about -20 is fairly telling.
  7. Dynasty - RHJ or Zubac?

    Mostly this. RHJ has the higher floor by a lot. He could be a super role player in the NBA. May be locked in as the starter for the foreseeable future. Real good glue guy for fantasy. He's on a bad team with no draft picks for a while. They are gonna give him as much burn as he can. Zub could be a game changer (ala Jok). He can be a nightly dbl/dbl guy. Will give you good percentages (I have faith his FT% will improve as he gets more comfortable). He has said he has a 3ball, will give you a few asts every now and then, and he can be a monster in blocks. He's starting in the NBA at 19, ahead of Jok/Nurk/Hernangomez, so he has time on his side. He has the POTENTIAL to be a stud for fantasy purposes (and even real life). However, he can be a tremendous bust. Flashes don't always pan out to consistent play in a 30+ minute role as a starting NBA player. All that said, in dynasty, you take the gamble.

    They're also on a back-to-back. For a 19 year old, 7'1", 250 lb rookie whose never started a game before, expecting 35 minutes out the gate, when they have a game the next day, is a stretch. He's starting, that's the first step. Let's see what his minutes look like in the next couple games. The important thing here is that he didn't look overwhelmed by the moment. That was more important to me at this stage.
  9. Ivica Zubac 2016-2017 Season Outlook

    Na. I think they corrected it. Was 3 for Zub and 1 for Nwaba on the henderson drive. Edit: Actually, you might be right. Was 2 on TLC, 1 on Hendo (that was originally credited to Nwaba), and 1 or 2 on Jah? I remember the 1 in the post. Did he have another on a drive by Okafor?
  10. Ivica Zubac 2016-2017 Season Outlook

    Hey guys, how many blocks does he have?
  11. Ivica Zubac 2016-2017 Season Outlook

    Pulled him half way through the 4th to give up the lead. I see you Luke. You're not slick.
  12. Tyler Ulis 2016-2017 Season Outlook

    He is getting ate on defense. =(
  13. Tyler Ulis 2016-2017 Season Outlook

    This is what happens when a 5'9" player gets put on the scouting report. Still think he has a bright future, but he definitely has some work to do.
  14. Tyler Ulis 2016-2017 Season Outlook

    What are thoughts about his dynasty value? I like his game a lot. He's a really good playmaker. Would be an obvious pick up in dynasty were it not for his size. I'm just not sure how much strength he can add.
