    THE QUEEN IS IN! Ask Away!

    Hello!

    I'm not one to do this type of post, but I've been getting so many e-mails asking advice, I just had to do to to keep it all in one place.

    Let me set some ground rules:

    1. Keep it on Head-2-Head. I'm most knowledgeable on H2H - I can offer my opinion on ROTO, but I don't really play it.

    2. YOU NEED TO POST YOUR TEAM/ROSTER. I cannot asses a trade or a waiver pick up if I don't know what you team's needs are. You should make this a personal rule whenever you post anywhere asking for trade advice.

    3. I'm already maxed out in my leagues. Don't ask me to join.

    4. Only Basketball-relevant questions, please. But to include a simple FAQ: Yes, I model and, yes - I'm married with a beautiful little boy!

    5. Just like any other advice, it's JUST an OPINION. Don't hate because you made a pick-up and the guy started sucking or decided to help his wife out and miss a few games (the latter of which I wholeheartedly endorse).

    So, what can I help you with today?

      • Hey Bibbyfan...what do you think of Mike Bibby this year? I am projecting him to finish at around 80. His rank is insane at 176. Last year MB started at 63 and finished at 108. I don't know, but the Hawks added Jordan Crawford, and I think Mike is going to really answer the challenge. Hawks should be very good again...a good bit better than last year. The more I think about it, the more I get the idea that Bibby could end up inside the top 50 even this year, and I don't think I'm crazy to say so...

        Marvin Williams finished last year at 88, his rank makes me sick (158). I project somewhere around 70 for this year. Also, I am projecting Richard Jefferson for 1500 points this year. Not sure he will quite make it, but I am so sure he will be really great this year. The Spurs should have him fully in their plans and in the fold this go round...

      • Sorry, Jessica, just would like to add a note on this one...You have ALMOST the perfect team. Get rid of Holiday, and this team will roll to a championship.

        If you trade, go for a 2 for 3. You could go Durant for Gasol and another player...I like Rashard Lewis. He is such a force on a roster and really very underranked this year. If you really push it you might be able to get Gasol and Jason Richardson, but I wouldn't settle for less, unless Lewis was all I could get. Richardson is better, because the Suns are 4 and 6 games during the Yahoo! playoffs, while Lewis is only 3 and 5. Now add to the trade Holiday for ANYTHING. I love Udrih. What a cool player to have on your bench. Just can't get enough of the consistent production off the bench. If you couldn't get PG, don't worry, just trust Steve Nash and Andre Miller. Along with Crawford, you have the energy to compete at the point this year even without another one. At all costs, I wouldn't get into anything involving Kobe for your team...just me...

        If you can actually make that happen, and it makes sense to me that it's possible, this could be the best team I'vve ever seen...Even if you could only get a deal of Holiday for Udrih you will have one of the best teams I've ever seen. It's the consistency that I see missing from so many rosters. You just have to have the numbers every week to win...

        Good luck!

    • Ay my girl Jess, whas good?!
