  1. It looks like he started well in the preseason, but it's unclear how many minutes he may get throughout the season. What do you guys think?
  2. so these 2 owners have drafted isaiah thomas at round 6 (12 teamer). i inquired about thomas right after the draft to one of the 2 owners and he said the only guy they were considering from my team to make a trade with was jokic (which I picked at 1st round, 10th overall). instead of wtf-ing my way out of that conversation i tried to explain that if i meant to sacrifice my 1st pick for thomas i would have taken him at my first pick, or 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th, or 5th. or 6th too, i can't remember if i had it before them. also that jokic averaged 1.11 fantasy points per minute (fppm, my league works on a minute basis, h2h points) and thomas just 1.04, so i wouldn't have accepted even were thomas immediately available to play (not mentioning jokic's dual eligibility). now that he is 2 spots out of the playoffs (i am 1st) i asked to the other owner about a trade for thomas (he was still a cav). i offered josh jackson and he refused, saying he would have considered only one guy between jokic, drummond and lillard. in the last 10 games they are respectively averaging 1.13, 1.13, 1.04 fppm, while isaiah thomas is averaging 0.72 fppm (a score that now includes his successful lakers debut, can't remember the exact value at the time of the trade inquiry). for reference, antetokounmpo is 1.15 for the season, and cut-by-phoenix mike james was 0.78 for the season. or also cut-by-the-knicks johnny o'bryant was 0.73
  3. i'm happy when i have a bad feeling, but then i rationally come to a conclusion and it eventually turns out to be the right decision, even if i was previously worrying i had made a mistake. a good example from this season is drummond. nobody wanted him but i knew he was going to go crazy this year: in my scoring format he had been trending up year after year, and his last year's projection was to become a top-15 player. i had the #13 pick and got him, but for the first season his fantasy points went down. this year i didn't want to do the same mistake, but i had also read about his nose surgery, which "changed everything" for him. i knew of a couple people close to me how much of a difference such operation could be, and one of andre's issues was his decreased minutes. also, i saw his unbelievable FT%, and sure the sample size wasn't big, but it was still big enough not to be completely out of the way. he had shot something like 75% between summer league and preseason, which was a bit high, and i expected it to be volatile (he is shooting around 65%), but a 75% couldn't fall down to his usual 38%. i knew at some point during the season this would have given him confidence to attack the rim without fearing he could have been hacked, or constantly hit without getting any added benefit from it. i drafted him despite my last year's burn and i also denied a 1-1 trade drummond-porzingis when KP was averaging around 30 ppg after 1 month and a half. this turned out to be a great decision regardless of KP's injury (though one of the reasons i liked drummond was he never misses games, he is a juggernaut) last year i did something similar when i drafted derozan, however i had an unlucky season due to drummond himself, jabari parker going down, myles turner being a huge disappointment (i'm laughing at who took him high this year, i fully expected him to be a scam)
