    Down 40, he has Evans, I have AB, JuJu, Conner. Probably wasn't the best idea to start 3 Steelers but uh....maybe it will be a shootout?
  2. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    Today's players don't like to play with alpha dog mentality all time greats. People didn't wanna play with Kobe towards the end either. I'm not saying I blame them and I get the drawbacks of it but still, it's true. It takes a certain type of individual to want to play next to a LeBron or Kobe or MJ, and the Lakers are only gonna be looking for people who want to make something special. If Jimmy wants his own team, no big deal. The Lakers are a hot name, always have been. For the last 3-4 years or whatever every summer all the big name FAs have been linked to LA and have "wanted to go there," yet before this summer, no one had. If all these dudes wanted their own team and wanted to be the guy to lead the Lakers back to their winning ways, why did all of them turn down the opportunity the last 3 or 4 years? I feel like the media does better when they have the Lakers name in their mouth and they throw them around and link them to everyone. They get more clicks and generate more buzz. How many of these guys really wanted to lead the Lakers back to prominence pre-LeBron? Probably no one, as we know. How many of these guys want to team up with LeBron? Probably a few but not too many.
  3. He'll still be a productive per-minute guy like FBF said above. However, he's gonna be on the $hit list this year and I don't see how he even gets close to 30 MPG. Coaching staff likes Bam too, I believe. He will have value on certain teams with certain builds but there could be a lot of disapointed owners out there if they're expecting 30+ minutes.
  4. Jimmy Butler 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Debating what team is the favorite to land a free agent next summer when next summer is 9 months away is pretty pointless. Situations will change. PG was a lock to go to the Lakers and LBJ was a total longshot pipe dream for the Lakers. Look what happened. Much more interesting and realistic to talk about landing spots for Jimmy this year than debate who's the favorite to sign Kawhi next summer.
  5. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    I don't think Fournette owners should trade him at all, and definitely not right now when he's injured and his value is down. Hold him, ride this out, then laugh all the way to the bank when he's having big games later this year.
  6. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    The bottom line is, Fournette owners are stuck with him because no owner who knows what they're doing will give fair value back for him. Fournette owners shouldn't try to move him right now either because we still don't know much about the injury yet. A few weeks of rest and I think he'll be fine. It's not how you start, it's how you finish. Keep your head above water a few weeks then reap the rewards when he's running around and scoring TDs. Don't make the mistake of trading him right now. The value isn't there and you'd be selling yourself short on something that might not be that big of a deal.

    Jerry and Jason are buddies, Dallas is a buddy-buddy place. I'm sure he'll be the coach all year as long as they don't start 0-10 or something crazy.

    The Rotoworld Doctors have spoken! Good call fellas!
  9. Mike Trout 2018 Outlook

    Pretty strong words for a team 4 games under .500. I wonder what you have to say about Baltimore.
  10. Mike Trout 2018 Outlook

    Wait, how does his drive and motivation get involved in this? He's clearly one of the hardest working players during the offseason, he's always in shape and ready to play ball. Every year he improves on something and becomes a more complete ball player than the year before, which is amazing when you think about it. Why wouldn't there be motivation to continue to dominate? He just got married, will probably start a family soon, contract situation coming up in a few years, only 27 and in his absolute prime. Plus he wants to win and he knows him playing well will always gave his team a shot. Just like the last few years, how much worse would the Angels be without him? He can almost single-handedly keep a team in the race with bums around him, like he's shown us before. I just have no idea why you'd question his motivation and drive for the game when everything around him is just starting to come into place. Now more than ever the drive should be as high as its ever been for him.

    Does this really surprise anyone though? The Angels have been notorious for mishandling players the last few years. It's a joke at how bad management has been.
  12. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    Agreed! Sad time to be an Angels fan right now. I feel like they've handled a lot of their pitchers the wrong way over the last few years. Countless UCL tears, some get TJ, some try to rehab it. Richards should've got TJ a year or two ago and instead they rehab it, then he goes down this year. Just get the surgery and get it done. Very frustrating as an Angels fan.
  13. Bold Predictions for the 2018-2019 Season

    Isn't there only one Kardashian left that's single? Guess they could all pass around Kourtney, you know Bron Bron gonna hit it first though. He don't mess with seconds.
  14. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    Manu hanging it up. I know this day has been coming but he was the last piece of the Spurs Big 3. With that, it's the end of an era in SanAn. As a Laker fan I didn't like them, but I sure did respect them. Actually, it's kind of sad to see them broken up. They were the model of consistency and a franchise to look to for how to do things the right way. Big 3 gone, Kawhi traded, Pop probably retiring soon, wonder how this will look for the Spurs in a few years.
  15. Myles Turner 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    It's nice that Myles has worked on his summer body and he'll come into camp in shape and all that but I'm not really all that excited about it because I don't know how much it really helps him. He's a face-up, jump shooter, he doesn't go bang down low in the post. Julius Randle was the winner of the NBAs biggest loser: offseason edition last year and how did that help him? It looked like he ran the court better and had more energy at times, but the stats don't show anything that would say his six pack helped his performance any better on the court than his dad bod did. I guess what I'm saying is, I don't really care he's in "the best shape of his life," we've all heard it a million times and most of the time it doesn't mean much.
