    dba, you're due for some top finishes!

    All day yesterday was too hectic. I actually had moves to make but I didn't finish them and closed my browser with heavy eyelids last night.

    27 points & 16 boards with 82% shooting from Marc Gasol!!??!!

    Plus 16 & 22 on 57% shooting from Biedrins.

    Good night. Would have been better with Iverson playing though.

    Advance the day to next Monday, and you can set it now (for the week starting Monday). Theoretically, you could set your whole season right now by going to each Monday.

    Let me know if you need any help DT.

    *But just remember that any free agent/waiver acquisitions along the way throw EVERYTHING off kilter after the following day. So if you set it for the entire week on Monday, but pick up a guy on Wednesday, you need to reset it for Fri, Sat & Sun...and anything after that.

    Thanks for clearing that up Darth! :D

    Novices, advanced players like Darth have lost so many leagues that they are great resources on how not to screw up your season, so don't be afraid to ask Darth about his mistakes.

    He's always willing to share a sad story of regret and tragedy.

    Roscoe,

    Did you ever figure out a way to fit all of my trophies into the little space you give us here? Granted, the competition in all of my leagues has been extremely weak and the trophies were easy to accumulate...but still.

    Well, I've probably lost count of all of them anyhow.

    Looks like you have a particularly weak crop of rookies in here this year. Not only do their teams suck but their smack is minor league too. Can't really blame them. I guess it all starts at the top.:lol:

    Well I can't exactly start smacking these guys around, because then I am a commissioner bully. But you would think one of them would have the moxie to slap me in the face and see if I will cower or rise to the challenge.

    Looks like we have more girls on this forum than I thought.

    :love:

    I'm not sure that's the way it works with weekly settings. If you drop/add a player he becomes available the next Monday and you retain anyone you got rid of until then too.

    Oops, didn't realize you were weekly.

    That's what I get for sticking my nose where it doesn't belong.

    Darth is an institution unto himself. The high heels, the cheap mascara, the bouffant hairdos. Like if someone took Bret Michaels from Poison and stuck him in a time capsule.

    Has anyone ever seen him without the headband? What's up there? There's room for another entire face.

    Strong showing by ChiTown. dba, you nearly had me!

    Chitown and I are battling it out for first place this week.

    Camel's Slobber, I'd put Bynum in your lineup over Lee next week if he doesn't pick up his game.

    Guys, I beat some of you to a streaky Delonte West. 2 things novices need to know.

    1. Clicking on "Opponents" shows you how many times people play over the next 7 days (check which day you are on when you click it).

    2. Learn how to sort. Click RANK to see player performance based on pre-draft rank, season, month and week. That's how you can see who is living off their rep, and who is surging or getting hot. You can use this to add players as well. Sorting will improve your chances in free agency!

    And a bonus. It is early yet, but Head-to-Head stats help you see where you rank vs. the league on each Scoring Category.

    Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Basketball - H2H stats

    Remember, you need to win the majority of your cats, not all of them. So if you have a team weak in assists, but strong everywhere else, you might want to consider if undermining a strength to shore up a weakness is really a good idea.

    If Baron Davis and Iverson stop fooling around and start playing some games then the sprockets will be all right. I only got two games out of the two of them this week.

    How about the closeness of the shooting percentages - 0.471 versus 0.470 and 0.770 versus 0.772.

    thnx, for advice, master.

    2 my guys went down with injuries: Tony Parker and Magette, and one decided that he dedicates his playing time to :Cry::Cry::Cry::Cry:

    It is I who deserves to :Cry:now, not Rip, goddammit!

    oh is that you roscoe? I don't have forum names matched up with team names yet
    we will have a battle, you have D. Wade for four games, who has been filling up the stat sheets, but I counted and I have a few more players eligible for more games...it will come down to the wire in this battle for first.
