They just lost to the Cavs, gave up a 20+ point lead -_- 

 

Yeah, without Jimmy.  KPJ had the game of his life, and they simply don't match up well given the Cavs have 4 capable big men and Miami's basically using an undersized Bam exclusively at C.  Also helps to shoot 34 FTs at home.  If you wanna look at it from the other side, they blew out the Cavs the game before at home.

They’re 10-10 in their last 20 and the wins have been either OT or very close. They’re in free fall, the trades made them worse and no one knows where Jimmy is 

 

Eh?  On the flip side, their LOSSES have been very close, and their losses in the last 20 have come against some decent teams (Jazz, Celts, LAC), while their losses against weaker teams had them missing Jimmy in tight games.  As far as trades, which trades?  The Jimmy Butler one? That was mixed, since Spol didn't seem like the coach for Whiteside, whose absence unleashed Bam, but losing J-Rich hurt.  Losing JJ, Winslow, and Waiters for Iggy and Jae (and Hill) was, IMHO, an excellent trade, since you're giving up JJ (who didn't play much), Winslow (who's a walking injury), and Waiters (who has so many off-court issues and injuries that I have no idea how he's still in the league), for a proven albeit aging champion and Finals MVP, and a capable 3 and D guy who can defend multiple positions.

Not a Heat fan by any means, but they'll be fine once Jimmy (and perhaps Herro) returns.  Also helps that they've got a soft schedule for the next three weeks, excepting two games vs the Mavs and Bucks.

How long do yall think it'll take yahoo to give him C eligibility?

 

Few more games.  From what I've seen, JJ plays a good deal of C behind Naz.  Guess I could go on Yahoo and request it as some of the guys have been doing.  I think it's also slower because JJ isn't exactly a star so Fantasy might not be as quick to recognize his eligibility.

Yeah think requesting directly through twitter is the fastest route like some have been saying before. PJ Tucker ain't a star he got it after 5 games or less lol.

LOL, I think PJ Tucker being a starter and the Rockets' center-less plan going viral in the media contributed too.

Maybe if JJ were starting over Naz permanently, or at least for more games, he might've gotten C eligibility quicker.

Don't have a Twitter but I'll make one and post.

All aboard the big man stat train. Hello to the new flavor of the week or perhaps few weeks. I'm expecting a few more great games, a dud or two thrown in for good measure, and a cut candidate before March is out. Good enough.

You are oozing with pessimism - must be a riot to sit next to on airplanes.

Just saying I have no use for him at C; I actually think he’s more useful at F.

It's actually 14/5/3 with 1.2stl 2blk over the last 14 days, but still, pretty great. Hoping he keeps it up through fantasy playoffs.

Probably for you roto guys. He has had to play at the 5 against bigs and gets into foul trouble or he would be playing more minutes. If/When KAT comes back, he might play some 4 along with KAT. 

In a points league, his foul troubles, Wolves developing Reid, Juancho and KAT coming back might put him at 20 min a game. He is pretty efficient with his minutes and fills up a lot of categories in the process. So I could see him ROS in Roto as being pretty valuable.

But 20 min in a points league might not be enough.

Love to watch him play though. He is a perfect player for the Wolves to have to help educate some of these young guys.

which one's worse: guy asking who-to-drop question on a player outlook thread or guy answering completely off tangent and just wanted to talk about himself/his league?

 

correct answer: me--not contributing anything to the thread 🤫

He’s basically doing what he did in Miami three years ago when he had that run where he went 15-5-4 and 1-1-1 😁. The scoring and assists aren’t quite to that level this time around, but they’re close, and most importantly the stocks are there.
