    good point. That's why I'm not going to win any "coach of the year" awards this season.

    before Knick made trades, I had in matchup upper hand. Those trades messed up everything - from my perspective. I dunno what to expect from Randolph in LAC or how D'Antoni is going to use old and new players. ( I still have 3 players from Knicks)

    My team is good, but not great. I need one more decent pickup to feel good about my chances. :icon_evil:

    Roscoe, I just dropped L. Deng because I needed 3 point shooter...Deng killed me this week by being injured, but it is minor and he will be back midweek. He has been good to me otherwise.

    That's cool Tom. You might not get him back now that you advertised it!

    Baron Davis finally started playing this week. And if AI can also figure it out my team ought to start rolling a bit. Good thing is I'm only a game and a half out of second place.

    Hopefully you will stay out of second place. :D

    My Detroit Ballahollics are doing OK. The Chauncey trade helped me since he is on my squad. I forgot to set my roster this week though.:(

    I think I will still be fine though.

    Yeah, Roger Mason was a nice pickup after Tony Parker went down.

    Unfortunately Jermaine O'Neal seems to have come up lame and will miss at least one or two. Not clear why they couldn't have figured that out on Sunday.

    another rookie mistake: importat is not only how many games per week, but matchups also.

    Udonis Haslem is struggling b/c of bigger defenders. I thought only: he plays 4 games in this week . Good. But sometimes it is better to let 2 games per week player play b/c of favourable matchups than 4 games playing but struggling baller.

    Got all clever last week and say Chris Paul who only had two games in favor of Lamar Odom who had four and got the win.

    Then forgot to change the lineup back this week.

    Duh....

    And left a slot open but still managed a 5-4 win over the second place team. I'm the only thing holding my team back.

    I see UP Heroes is making his move up the standings.

    I can't seem to get much going...

    don't worry, you aren't the only: I still see Amir Johnson in active roster and Kevin Martin and so on in this league....

    I won my machup in the last week 6-3. On the paper it sounds nice but I'm taking it with "grain of salt": it should be obvious that Sheed for MVP does not pay attention to his team: in his active roster he has two long term injuries and my proposed trade to him is already pending for 3rd day.

    It is not very interesting to fantasy play vs "abandoned" roster.

    That's LK. He might be preoccupied with the holiday.

    I'd take the win and be happy. When he gets back on the job, 6-3 victories might not come so easily.

    LK, you are still with us, yes?
