    Right? I think I've got my answer to why I've been leaping up Apollo's pretend rankings.

    Now I've got to weigh actually re-signing him in the summer... Well, we'll see if he keeps it up.

    In the past his barriers to playing time has been a lack of defense, a throwback offensive game and playing on teams with viable talent at the only position he can play. What's changed since then? Is it just that Davis is out or has he improved his game?

    Know who steps up when Davis, inevitably, misses time? Jrue Holiday - dude had 6 blocks last night. When was the last time a Point Guard had 6 freakin blocks?

    Plus 19/6/8 line with 2 treys and a steal. I hope Davis never plays another game with the Pelicans.

    You have 007 on the ropes already this week. Will he respond with a rally? Looks like he has the man advantage from here on.

    Shout out to Mikal Bridges who is ranked 37th over the last 30 days and 15th over the last two weeks. He's no doubt the runaway candidate for BOTY and MVB.

    On the surface it looks like the Knicks got hosed but when looking at the contracts going to Dallas it looks like they're mostly dumping cap so they can go after those big names this off-season. If they fail to sign at least one of the big names then they look really stupid. For me this is great. Pozingis gets to be mentored by his hero and play for an organization who knows how to handle a superstar big man. Last but not least he'll be set up by a phenom for at least for the next decade.

    The 23-year-old Porzingis and his brother Janis, who is his agent, met with Knicks management on Thursday morning and discussed his frustration with the franchise's losing, its past dysfunction and his own uncertainty over creating sustainable organizational success, sources said.

    The Knicks really screwed up how they handled the big fella.

    The Knicks NEED 2 superstars to sign.

    The deal sucks for my squad if they dont give PT to DJ. Fuck the Knicks.

    He's a shutdown candidate if I ever saw one. They're tanking for a higher pick and playing DJ doesn't really jive with the dive for Zion.

    Multiple league sources have confirmed a blockbuster deal that will surely shatter the top of the standings. The 007's have just moved Giannis plus scrubs for Big Game Dame, Brolo, Batum & McGee.

    And with that my season is pretty much over. Post-trade it looks like 007 takes the lead from Axel in rest of season stat projections because he hit all his weak point with this doozy. I'm curious what the power rankings look like after this.

    No telling when the Unicorn and Dipo are back to 100% again and so I felt this was my best bet seeing how I can't get those most out of those guys in this trade right now or possibly next season.

    Honestly, I see no reason why 007 makes that move, but I'm curious to hear it. Nice one for Apollo.

    Yeah, itís a bit of a head scratcher to me too. Itís hard to trade a player like Giannis and get equal value and I just donít see the point of this deal for 007.

    Good move for Apollo though.

    Changes:
    ^ 007 (+5%)
    v Axel (-5%)
    ^ Koncept (-3%)
    v jbml (-5%)
    - Joey (-3%)
    ^ Mack (-3%)
    ^ WJF (-3%)
    ^ Realizar (-5%)

    Out:
    vvvv Apollo (-12%)

    Analysis:
    After an eight player blockbuster trade was sealed last night involving Dame Lillard, Brook Lopez, Nic Batum & JaVale McGee heading to 007 in exchange for Giannis & filler, the landscape of the RRBA has change drastically. 007 made this all in move on a few more chips and projections show it paying off in a big way as he set a new high mark, which saw the whole league lose traction. Every team in contention for the playoffs dropped 3-5%, including the league's only undefeated team, who dropped 5%. One exception, the Creeds dropped a full 12% and that totals a 21% drop over the last two weeks. Expect them to make some short term moves in order to be respectable in round one.

    Thanks. I think he's in it to win it right now. His team looks very favorable on the stats projections. To quantify in one number, he had a 10% swing on Axel for example... Who's currently undefeated.
