  1. Myles Turner 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I'm thinking of trading Deandre for Turner in my roto league, what is Myles outlook for ROS if healthy? Seems like there is a lot of frustration in this thread, lol.

    He's been so consistently good for so long he has the right to put up a dud once in awhile. Hopefully he's not hurt as the poster above suggested.
  3. Taurean Prince 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Didn’t watch the game, but he ended up with a pretty good line against a tough D

    Signs of life!
  5. Jeremy Lamb 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Picked him back up today to stash on my bench for the trade deadline, but I'm plugging him into the lineup tonight with the news that MKG is out. Should be a very favorable matchup vs the Kings.
  6. Kawhi Leonard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Article seems like a fluff piece from a local beat writer. And Kawhi seems to be giving mixed messages: “I need to string some games together,” Leonard said after posting 19 points, eight rebounds and four steals in the win over the Nuggets. “I talked to veteran guys who have been in this situation. They say to give yourself time — two weeks, three weeks, maybe a month — to get back to yourself.” Though he said he had “no complaints” about the quadriceps or the shoulder after Saturday’s game, Leonard left the AT&T Center unsure if he would be available against the Hawks.“It’s just day to day, walking in the gym and seeing what happens,” Leonard said. “We’ll see how it responds.” Does that mean he wants to play consecutive games right away or that he wants to wait until he's fully healthy to do that? Seems like the beat reporter inferred the former on his own and created a headline. Like you said, if a report is leaked to Woj, it is usually done with a purpose and it is usually on the money. The report to Woj clearly states that Kawhi felt like he needs more time to get right but the Spurs are pushing him against his volition.
  7. Kawhi Leonard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Lol, did anyone actually read the article? It says the disconnect is from the fact that Kawhi has actually been hurt and the Spurs keep downplaying the injury. Leonard missed the first 27 regular-season games and has played only nine. Last week the Spurs sent him back to San Antonio to continue his rehabilitation process. Leonard has told the Spurs at different stages of the process that he wasn't comfortable with his ability to play through the injury and that the Spurs shut him down. Amazing after all this time Kawhi owners still believe he's not really hurt.

    Both Dragic and Johnson out again tonight. Man with the Golden Arm has a great chance to continue going HAM.
  9. Robert Covington 2017-2018 season outlook

    Please keep benching him for all of our sakes
  10. Joe Ingles 2017-18 Season Outlook

    Came so close to dropping last night then only plugged him into the lineup because Hood was hurt. Wow, what a monster line.
  11. Taurean Prince 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Yeah he's planted on my bench until he turns it around but I'm not cutting because of the huge opportunity he has. Should be even more of a focal point in the second half if Hawks can move some vets at the trade deadline..
  12. Taurean Prince 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    What’s with the low usage recently?
  13. Robert Covington 2017-2018 season outlook

    Seriously? He averaged 7 points a game on under 30% shooting until late December last year (25+ games). Do you just make stuff up?
  14. Robert Covington 2017-2018 season outlook

    Well, the encouraging thing about this graphic is that it's 4 games. That's a hell of a small sample size.
  15. Kawhi Leonard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    You've had Kawhi for like 3 weeks so this is not really insightful. The point is if you drafted Kawhi in the first round in roto and held him all season there is no way that you're not massively disappointed even if your team is doing ok in the standings, because you could have had an AD, Cousins, CP3, Lillard, etc instead of a guy who's had like 4 total quality games all season long.
