Moe tie junas, y’all, recognize, don’t be Tobias!

Holy mackerel, it’s March 1 already! Hey, why is a mackerel holy and not a trout and, by the way, Batman, why do you always seem to have whatever you need in that utility belt of yours?Well, Robin, first of all there is a Trout that is holy but that’s an entirely different sport and I always have whatever I need in my utility belt because hecman’s Magic 8 Ball who moonlights as a Crystal Ball on weekends in Manhattan tells me what to put in it. He’s also helped me to first place in my fantasy basketball league! …. Oh, groovy, Batman, and hey, it’s Add/Drop Friday at hecmanhoops! He´s going to give you a whole bunch of guys trending up and trending down! … Right on, Robin! Let’s get to it, shall we? … Oh, and don’t forget, Batman, all ownership percentages are from Yahoo!


Carl Landry – 41% – I went over him the other day, it was a fabulous post! I hope you were able to Landry Carl!

Brandon Bass – 41% – Been over him a couple of times, getting burn. Not sure if you noticed but I´ve already covered all over all these guys! I care!

Jason Thompson – 41% – With Thomas Robinson launched to Houston, JT doesn´t really have a problem anymore. Ironic! Or something like that.

Derrick Williams – 40% – Finally getting recognition he deserves with ownership up to 40%. Now if only Kevin Love could miss the fantasy playoffs. Where is Tanya Harding when you need her!

Jeff Green – 39% – Should be a nice play for the rest of the year. I think I may cry. Sniff.

Kirk Hinrich – 35% – Better hurry and grab him before he tweezes a nose hair and misses two weeks from the burn.

Antawn Jamison – 33% – Settling in to the rotation. He´s up and he´s down, he´s hot and he´s cold, he´s black and not white! I changed it up on you!

Al Harrington – 29% – I could see his ownership doubling once he gets his conditioning up. Join the fun early!

Al-Farouq Aminu – 29% – Rebound that basketball, rebound that basketball. I know Anthony Davis doesn´t seem interested to do it so someone has to!

Martell Webster – 23% – Martell, you get no respect but I respect you, man. I´ve given you your props since January. Keep on shooting the ball!

Tobias Harris – 20% – I went over him right here. The post was so fabulous that my fingers got an award, I let them put choclate in my mouth. Then I let them hold a beer bottle and lift that to my lips. It was fun!

Devin Harris – 17% – He´s just doing his thang. Atlanta is in the South so we have to say thang. It´s like the law!

Moe Harkless – 16% – Some might argue he´s downward trending with the emergence of Tobias Harris and Al Harrington working his way back and maybe he is!

Kevin Seraphin – 10% – Lost in fantasy wasteland when Nene Hilario and Emeka Okafor are healthy but can be found when one of them isn´t!

Kyle Singler – 8% – Getting minutes, doing a little bit o’ dis and a little bit o’ dat. I’m not sure if he’s Irish but he looks it!

John Salmons – 8% – Been hot lately, maybe it can continue, maybe it won´t. It probably won´t but I´d grab him to find out. You can always launch him. Like diamonds in the sky!

Donatas Motiejunas – 7% – I went over him in yesterday´s post. It was the most amazing post since the day before!

Beno Udrih – 6% – Getting nice burn and providing cheap dimes. Definitely useful until Jameer Nelson comes back, definitely useful, definitely useful, said Rain Man.

E’Twaun Moore – 6% – I don´t know about you but Moore is owned in every league I´m in yet is only owned in 6% of Yahoo! leagues. What´s up with that!? Oh, wait, maybe it´s because I own him in most of them. Nevermind.

Jason Smith – 3% – Get on the boat and stream away tonight if you´d like. Haven´t you heard, Anthony Davis is a big fat pussy. No, I´m not frustrated with AD or anything. WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT I AM!

Alec Burks – 2% – The other day I sang you a song and it went something like this: If you want him, there he is, go and get him but you better hurry because Mo Williams is coming back fast. Go back and sing it if you´d like. It´s fun. I like singing songs, its´s fun!

P.J. Tucker – 2% – Getting run for Phoenix. However inexplicable that may sound.

Wes Johnson – 1% – Hey, I don’t make this stuff up, I just report who is getting some burn. Don’t judge!

Trevor Booker – 1% – Should see some run if Nene Hilario is sidelined. Could be good, could be bad. That’s why he´s 1 % owned, it´s called low risk!


Andrew Bynum – 72% – Talk about desperate!

Andrea Bargnani – 59% – Hey, haven´t you heard, he sucks!

Jared Dudley – 58% – Been trending down for about a month now but nobody seems to want to give up on him. Suit yourself. On the bright side, baseball season is right around the corner!

Kris Humphries – 48% – Newsflash! He wasn´t traded and is more useless than a fake ad on Craigslist!


Earl Clark – 40% – No, he´s not a truck driver but his name sounds like one!

  1. I know you’re not a doctor, but if you had to take a guess, how much time do you think Pek will miss. I’m locked into a playoff spot, so I’m just worried he might not be ready by 3/18 (week#1 of playoffs). should I be looking to drop him if he’s going to miss allot of time?


  2. nice post hec! short and sweet. as opposed to what I’m about to post which is still pretty sweet but a little longer. Also I don’t know what’s worse, pulling a nose hair or biting your lip. Lets just say they are equally bad and that Hinrich would go down with both…aaaanyway…

    I accepted the trade and should be able to welcome D-Wade and Ibaka to my team shortly. My new team will look like this…

    Wade, Ellis, Beal, Foye
    LeBron, Deng, Delfino
    Ibaka, Mullens, C. Landry
    BroLo, Kaman, Biyombo

    I’m in 4th/5th place right now (I’m tied with another team at 86-73-3 but since he had better outcome last week he’s technically ahead of me). Both of us have a small lead ahead of the 6th place team (81-79-2) which is the cutoff for playoffs so my chances aren’t too bad at all. The final three weeks my opponents look like this…

    Afflalo, Stuckey, Billups
    J. Green, Kirilenko
    D. Lee, Faried, T-Rob, Patterson
    Jefferson, Sanders, Pekovic, Bosh

    Jack, W. Bynum
    C. Lee, T. Allen, Kidd, Salmons
    J-Smoove, Thad Young
    Noah, Dwight, DeAndre, Reggie Evans, Lavoy

    Lawson (I miss him already)
    Joe Johnson, Danny Green, E. Gordon,
    Dudley, Butler
    Z-Bo, Unibrow, Nicholson, Clark, Bargs
    Nene, Okafor, JaVale

    *catches breath*

    So my question is, considering my standing, would you make any trades to acquire Kevin Love or Mo Williams from a team fighting for a spot? It would be nice to catch 2nd place (92-65-5) so I’m not sure if stashing either of them is a great idea. I tossed Deng’s name out there and he’s interested. What do you think?

    Also, Moore, Harrington, and Harris are still available in my league. I really want to add Moore but I don’t know who I should drop. Kaman passed his headaches on to his owners. It just had to be the week I gave up smoking pot too.

  3. @allballs: Hinrich once hurt his eye lid blinking and missed two weeks so anything is possible with him. My guess is what it would take to get Love may hurt you to get set up for the playoffs so I´m guessing you won´t be able to get him for what it´ll cost. If you could move say Landry/Delfino for him and then add Harrington with Love that might be interesting. You could always also lose Kaman for Moore if you need immediate help. Otherwise, wait to see if Al gets his conditioning back and consider just added him for Kaman if Kaman can´t get it going. Good luck and keep me posted!

  4. Hec,

    Awesome job as usual!!

    Been offered a trade that I am leaning toward taking.

    I give IT2, Klay Thompson, Gerald Wallace, Mike Dunleavey, my 3rd and 4th pick in this coming draft, along with 3rd in 2014 and 3rd in 2015. The picks I dont really care about, I can recoup them at some point.

    I get Tim Duncan, Amare Stoudemire, Toby Harris, Jameer Nelson and picks.

    This would make my team for the playoff run:

    Westbrook, Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Henderson, Nelson, Devin Harris, Shved,
    Horford, Z-Bo, Duncan, STAT, Toby Harris, Kirilenko, Clark

    Would you do this trade??

    Gets me some much needed big men for the playoff run. We keep 6 at the end of the year.

  5. Just FYI for everyone, but Jason Smith will miss the remainder of the season with a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

  6. Also, is Ro Lo a good spec add with Smith out and Ant Davis seemingly injured every other week? I would have to drop Harris or Montiejunas.

  7. hec,

    Al-Farouq Aminu or Tobias Harris?

    Also would you dropping Paul Millsap for Martell Webster?

  8. Hec, haven’t commented in awhile but that’s only cuz my teams are doing so well. Your column is the first thing I read everyday. Preesh

  9. Mighty E, I picked up Harris last week and he’s a monster, I’d make both of those moves for what its worth

  10. John, This is Harris’ line from tonight 27/10/2 1 block, 3 3’s shooting .556 and hes getting 30 minutes of burn every game. I think he’s a must add.

    Sorry Hec, don’t mean to answer your questions for you

  11. Hi Hec,

    I want to take the risk on Love with a view to putting me over the top in the playoffs.

    The guy who owns Love is currently sitting in fifth place (4-team playoffs) so he’s willing to deal to stay in playoff contention.

    I think the logical path is a straight up swap here. Which of my guys would you trade for Love?

    My team:

    Westbrook, Korver, Pierce, Al Jefferson, Cousins.

    Mo Williams, Danny Granger, Jeff Green, Carl Landry, Derrick Williams, Hickson, Asik, Pekovic.

    His team:

    Kyrie Irving, Afflalo, Kirilenko, Bosh, Chandler.

    Avery Bradley, Ginobili, DeRozan, Brandon Jennings, Millsap, Mullens, K-Love.

    Or do you see any other trade options there that could land Love for me?

    Thanks man!

  12. Hey Hecman,

    I hope you’re having a great weekend. Should I pick up Enes Kanter? Do you think Al Jefferson will be out for a while? Any news on him?

  13. Limited internet access has slowed me a bit from answering questions as quickly as I usually do so apologies but I’m back on now!

    @MightyE: Yes on Tobias for Aminu, I’d hold Millsap.

    @Hitmanwg4u: Tempting, the upside is certainly greater.

    @Chile: My weekend is fabulous, thanks! Adding Kanter depends on who you’re dropping.

    @Francis: Any combo if Derrick Williams and Landry or Green maybe?

    @Grant: Tobias is killing it but I wouldn’t move Wes for him.

    @Chuckles00: Lowry has disappointed but the order you listed seems right.

    @Henry: Happy to hear your team is killing it. Cheers to your continued success and thanks for reading and commenting!

    @John: It’s a bit risky but Tobias has more upside. Hayward you know what you’re getting so your call.

  14. Hey Hecman,

    I dropped Thomas Robinson for Enes Kanter. Man, my weekend is ruined by the news that Tony Parker is out for a couple of weeks. He is one of my best players, and the playoffs start in 2 1/2 weeks. Sigh…

  15. is it safe to drop TRob since DoMo has emerged as the better play? or do you think TRob will be a strong play later this season?


  16. @Adrian: He can only improve but right now it looks like slow going so if there is a hot free agent out there then sure, go for it.

  17. i just picked up robin lopez. jeff green, wilson chandler, aminu, and henderson are all available. Should i make any moves to my roster? (14 team h2h yahoo).

    pg: deron williams, george hill, derrick rose
    sg: james harden, bradley beal, monta ellis
    sf: kawhi leonard, earl clark
    pf: zbo, erasan illyosova
    c: gortat, robin lopez

  18. Hey Hecman,

    The news says Tony Parker is out for 4 weeks. He does not come back until early April, and that is when the championship game starts in my league. Should I drop Tony Parker? :(

  19. to add to Chile’s question… is there a good pick up since Parker is out. Was thinking Neal or Mills??

  20. there’s mills too, who knows what’s on pop’s mind? :S I guess he splits time between all these, no fantasy context in my opinion, as in boston celtics with rondo out

  21. Hec,

    Someone dropped Kevin Martin in my league. Is he worth adding over Byron Mullens?

    The rest of my team, Curry, Lillard, Vasquez, Dragic, Affalo, Korver, Hayward, Parsons, Horford, Tyson, McGee, Robin Lopez and Love. (Yes, I picked up Love a little early) :-)

    Mullens has been struggling in the blocks/steals for the past 7 games or so. Plus he is a DRAIN on my FG%.

    I figure I’d be getting better FG%, more ftm, and 3pm out of Martin.

    I dunno.

  22. @kwame brown: possibly green for clark or rolo.

    @martin: leaning neal. bad luck.

    @|King Jesus: Sure, if you need the extra threes and FT at the expense of some boards.

    @patrickdrd: you´re probably right but i see green, manu and neal as the main beneficiaries, not crazy about anyone else really.

  23. @chile: depends on your add but if you need to win now or first round of playoffs then you´ll have to make the move. sigh.

    @Adrian: leaning neal of those two.

  24. Quick question.

    Would it be a good move to pick up Tobias Harris and drop Paul Millsap.. Harris is just killing it right now.

    let me know thanks
