Wow, tied 4-4 and won the tie breaker. Not sure what it was.


to tell the truth I think Skai they give you a "extra" blk via stat correction bc yesterday we you had all games played you were down by 1 blk and Frost had LBJ yet to play

Frost my bud can blame this on him imo bc he should steam and droop Leonard, Grant & Brown that are useless on his team

Hey you droop snell and chandler
Others Rivers
I droop Kostta K. ( well only 3 games this week no games monday and tuesday + injury on his hand + they want to give time to his youngsters. )

Congrats you have a terrific team

I think Isaiah Thomas should rest one more week to ensure he is good for the playoffs.

your team is FG% Reb blk To and then try to win one of STL Pts or 3´s

It3 would hurt your chances to win pts 3´s and sts that said one more week would be perfect for you :D

:wassup:

Last 3 years of this league 1st 3rd and 1st
Last 10 years only 1 missed the playoffs
FKN GOAT

every year a new strategy
this was the most unbiased trade ever to get aproved
well you been weighed measured found wanting

I know that bc :
- I speak what is in my mind
- I dont lick other people ass
- and especially all I ever do is win

Some of you dont like me and I dont expect you all to come here and congratulate me
I know how some of you are felling inside and belive I and Loving it
bc all that hate just give me the strength to get back slap your butts year after year after year after year after year

Now is time to celebrate

:D

I am absolutely sure that you know that you are not included in the heartburn group. I'm even surprised that they have not yet closed without any mention of the winner, something that happened only once, curiously when I won.

When they come up with the excuses of the players who were hurt during the season I already have my list of games that I lost, from bradley to dragic to horford ...

Btw champagne ?

But it was more close that other might think
you are also one of the best always on top and you decided to go low ball
Lillard
it3
rJax
was sexy
your problem was when you reach the final Lillard and it3 3 games week was going to hurt you
Rjax sdown did the rest

not to mention the 3 C factor
Willy Hernangomez
Enes Kanter
Georgios Papagiannis

I would try a different route trusday you decided to add
J.Anderson - perfect choice imo
Trevor Booker - here i would try one of JaVale McGee or B. Wright

probably it would make you win Blk and nothing more than that while would kill your Ft% right away

Idk

it was fun and Skai see you on Top next year

champagne ?

I think half of Fran's victory was in the pick trades. The league gives him a big head start every year, so why shouldn't he take it?

Congrats to Fran/Skai/Winston!

My guys turned it on way too late. Rubio&Marvin both were aces after I was eliminated from playoffs. Doh. I gotta draft better players. :oops:

Idk anyone that does trades to get wrost
do you? :D

But if you look carefully
I m not the one that benefit more with trades therefor this year I almost didnt do any
Sabonis took my place as the trade master
and Winston took woody place as the guy with the most unbiased trade - woody was always a non factor bc he doesnt know how to draft and to run a team- ABC fantasy get the more 1st / 2nd rounds you can then steam with the other players then hope to have zero injurys then its always the same strategy ... doesnt get borring ? the big difference is that Wiston knows how to draft and run a team therefor a unbiased trade in his hands was sick

Option two follow woody get the most #1st and #2nd rounds you can ( you cant go wrong on them ) then try to hit a jackpot with the other 9 picks steam with the others
try to grab stls blk rebs fg% 3pts lowTo
tank FT
3pts rebs are easy to get when you steam and in late rounds

right now there are tons of pg that have killer Ft% that doesnt used to happend 5 years ago
I went that track last season BGriffin and Dragic inj didnt pay off and i finish 3rd
it´s fun but its a sure win with a late lotto ball that is the perfet choice imo

I would trade down a top 3 for a late 1st and early 2nd + a mid upgrade for 2 late jumps and go that track
injurys have a major factor by doing that you lower your injury risk + you get a strong crew to win 6 cats and since this is H2H ...

normally Gm go small ball if you go and check records normally 3pts or Ft% or Ast or Stl doesnt have a guy winning that cat more than 2 or 3 weeks in row while FG rebs blk have the same guy crushing. While you dont need to crush you could ballance and move in with guys that help in @ different cats just look for ex at the jokic and his ast ... you see the picture.

Next season theres tons of guys that are sexy and might turn in good - this season i decided to bet on KP insted of Jokic bc I didnt love the frontcourt situation of denver. That traded help both players i mean jokic and nurkic.

Also I dont like the options to trade up and dont have at least 2 or 3 late picks - guys that you can bet - hey they can be rooks or new team situation vets or 2nd year or 3rd year or whatever you have a crush, if they pain out ok if they dont you move on just bc every year theres a couple of great fantasy players that are not drafted and if you "pay" to have all your picks in the top 180 you will have a hard time to let them go.

for exemple this year this guys were on waivers
Tony Snell
Taurean Prince
Ivica Zubac
imothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
J.R. Smith
Middleton
Ian Mahinmi
Evan Turner
Wilson Chandler
Willy Hernangomez
Malcolm Brogdon
C.J. Miles
Marquese Chriss
Richaun Holmes
Jameer Nelson
Buddy Hield
Willie Cauley-Stein
Caris LeVert
Alan Williams
Tyler Ulis

Just to name a few
