By George, He's Done It Again

November 30, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

Paul George's presence as a top 10 player is certainly surprising to me, as he has overcome a significant mental hurdle to not only get back to his best but to somehow be far and away a better player than he was pre-injury. Congratulations if you drafted him.

Anthony Davis, Come Save Us

November 29, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, it appears Chris Paul didn't end Anthony Davis' career Friday night, despite Twitter's protests, as AD was back and destroying again. The latest injury scare may be an opportunity to buy him as low as you'll ever see, but Saturday's output might reduce that chance.

An Almost 5x5 Friday

November 28, 2015 by Kyle McKeown

On a 12-game Friday evening, there were plenty of lineup changes and big fantasy lines to go over, and leading the way was Kawhi Leonard missing a 5x5 performance by one steal.

DeMarcus Cousins- Got a trade offer for my Cousins & Bledsoe for his Harden, Collison, and T. Jones. I'm going to decline but would it be worth it to counter for Harden and Gobert? [phoeniix]

Joakim Noah- What's up here? Own TJones wanna cut bait. [rainier88]

Karl-Anthony Towns- I think his ceiling is going to be capped in part by new team trainer Arnie Kander's conservative influence on minutes/GP. MN hired him away from DET--this season KCP's and Drummonds mpg have both increased by 5. Kander takes the long long view and seems to prefer minutes in the 30-32 range. And no playing thru injuries. (Held out Rubio last night, who wanted to play.) [kitchles]

Andre Iguodala- Worth a #3 waiver claim to pick up? Thumbs up if you agree. [phoeniix]

Michael Carter-Williams- Still hanging on.. really solid line tonight with 30 minutes, will he keep a role in the rotation or was this an outlier due to Vasquez being out? [#28271]

Terrence Jones- Played bad in first half (15 min). Did not even get off bench in 2nd half. Time to panic? Oh, wait, I'm already panicing. Time to cut the tie? [wubeone]
67% agree

Nerlens Noel- Should i drop Noel and pick up Clint Capela? or am i not thinking strait? [solidoak]
0% agree

Reggie Jackson- Projection adjusted downward today is what prompted it, and I have no mind of my own. I need assists and his assist barrage at the end of last year doesn't appear to be real at this point. Yes, he's going to have the ball in his hands, but he has an established propensity for shooting over passing, and I should've seen that. [kitchles]

Stanley Johnson- it was against houston and harden? [TFergBaby]
50% agree

Reggie Jackson- @kitchles any particular reason that prompted that? Dropped 31/4/8 with 2 steals and 3 treys tonight...Yeah he is going to have his bad games but the guy has the ball in his hands constantly, so much upside each night. [demandy]
100% agree

Kevin Martin- He leads the league in shots that clank off the side of the rim and into the bottom of the backboard, and his confidence seems really rattled. I think this stretch of games marks the official beginning to the twilight phase of his career. [kitchles]

Stanley Johnson- @transition3s - just contemplating the same move [brycee]

Stanley Johnson- I don't believe this is his break out, but I dropped Terrance Jones for him. I wish I could write expletives about Terrance Jones right now. [transition3s]

Jimmer Fredette- Jimmer dropped 37 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists, a steal, 2 threes on 12-17 from the field and 11-12 from the FT line. I think his NBA projection should be adjusted to that. Jimmer-mania is alive in the D-League. [shaolin36ers]

Stanley Johnson- The breakout is upon us [darrenloveland]
