  1. Reading through Raptors' boards, the general impression they have from the first 2 preseason games are: 1) OG is nothing special. His ball handling is still mediocre. 2) Stanley Johnson, McCaw, and RHJ are absolute trash. 3) You're correct, Terrence Davis and Boucher seem to have potential. 4) Norman Powell seems to be the one who will take the giant leap this season, and not OG who all fans initially thought would make the MIP-Siakam-type leap.
  2. Through Toronto's first 2 preseason games against the Rockets, Norman Powell has started both games, averaging 18ppg, 3.5 3pointers, on good FG and FT shooting percentages. All this in less than 20 minutes a game. He won't give you a lot of stocks but the scoring and percentages for someone who'll go very late or undrafted in most standard leagues might be appealing especially in Roto leagues. Coaching staff have raved about him in training camp, and he's gone out to say that he's looking to solidify the starting SG spot for the Raptors.
  3. What a beast. Having the best line of the night on a night when Kemba scores 43, and Anthony Davis plays. Doc screwed with his minutes at the very start of the season making more than a few impatient owners to panic and drop him after just 2 games. His last 30 days average, which includes his 14 games after the 2-game dud, is fantasy gold. 16.8 ppg on 69.9% FG shooting and 69.2% FT, 7.2rpg, 1.6apg, 1.3spg, 1.8bpg, 1.5topg Shawn Marion-esque w/o the 3 point and FT shooting, but offset by insane FG shooting. His Last 30 days averages are good for top-22 in 9-cat. Definitely the waiver pick up of the year.
  4. What a beast. Looks like the STOCKS are here to stay. Enjoy the ride boys!
  5. Amazing how he transformed from 1.2 stocks per game last season to 2.8 stocks this year playing an additional 5 minutes a game. His stock rate doubled from last year. But he's been doing this since the preseason which makes it a 16 game sample size already. Also, watching him you would see his effort and timing on defense. Looks like he'll be able to sustain it. Comparing his stocks with other players, he's averaging better stocks than the following: Giannis Otto Oladipo Kawhi Great stocks plus top-6 in FG value this year, wow!
  6. Just to put things in perspective for those who were burned by Whiteside last season... Whiteside only had 1 game with 5 or more blocks in 54 games last year. In 9 games this year, he already has a 5-block, 6-block, and 9-block game. He's definitely locked in this year, and issues with Spo have been addressed. (reposting for those who were not able to catch this) Hoping for a top 20 finish this year.
  7. Not cleared yet. He thinks he will return either Friday or Saturday.
  9. Looks like I'll be riding it out too. Decent owners won't bite on Gallo trade offers. A couple of things to note on Gallo's health this season. 1) He skipped the FIBA tournament in the off-season to concentrate on being healthy coming into the season. 2) Doc Rivers looks like he's managing Gallo's minutes well may contribute to his ROS outlook. Gallinari has only played 21-26 minutes during blowouts, and 34+ minutes during close games. Hopefully this translates to around 70 games played this year for him.
  10. 2014-2015 Contract-Year Carroll put up 12.6ppg, 1.7 threes, 5.3 reb, 1.3 spg, .487 FG, .702 FT, 1.1TO in 70 games for the hawks - good for a top 50 finish. Of course he won't be able to replicate that, especially the FG shooting, at age 32. But Carroll just strikes me as somebody who really tries to show up on a contract year. This plus the fact that he seems to be an Atkinson favorite makes it seem like a top 75-80 year for him.
  11. Hoping that the blocks and FT shooting (not likely) are sustainable. He's been blocking a lot since the preseason so there's reason to hope for the continued increase in blocks.
