    Ankel sprain.

    I am open to some changes , not to attract all the sharks smelling blood in the water. If I see a good deal then I will take it.

    I have plenty of scoring, assists snd rebounds but coming up short in steals and blocks. Two prolific scorers in T-mac and Baron davis, but they shoot too much...so I have sweat it out in FG%...maybe willing to part with one one of them for a couple of players who can provide some defense...

    Coming up short once again as my opponents final day performance goes into clutch mode. Haslem and Lee combine for 30 rebounds. Against a 20 rebound deficit, I get to toss fringe guys like Swift and Delonte West. I could hope and Bogut and Jianlian snags some caroms but my team doesn't do that.

    luckily, my lead in Assists and steals was comfortable enough, to let Chris Paul and Kevin Durant (who ruins my FG% with reckless abandon) sit out their final games- I wouldn't have won in the TO category with them playing.
    Unfortunately, I did play Desmond Mason who, along with Louis Scola (whom I still expect to break out and deliver!!! Louis, I'm waiting!!!) ruined my FG%, which was pretty close- after a poor performance by Ricky Davis and Gilbert Arenas, I gained hope that I could win in that category, but than Ilgauskas delivered once more, shooting 11 for 18- I doubt he'll stay as dominant as he currently is an entire season.
    So, I realized where my teams weaknesses are, but it seems like every other team has the same weaknesses as I do and no one needs scorers but everyone needs rebounders and shotblockers, what makes them pretty worthy.
    And, as Slippy wrote in another thread, the trade talk is kinda like "I'll trade you two scrubs for your bonafide superstar" or "I'll trade you my round 7 pick for your round 3 pick" but I tend to do that too, since it would be too nice to acquire someone that way :MusicBigGrin:

    Once I see one of those, I refuse to trade with those clowns. It ticks me off when they try to take advantage of others.

    People know who you are. We don't call you savvy GM's. We call you rapists and rip offs and other things I can't really write here.

    The best trade is the one that is made with the intent to help BOTH teams.

    I just love getting trades where it's my guy for your two guys and even if I did want your two guys you offered I would pick them up off of the waiver wire for free next week after you dumped them.

    You don't need to rip off others to win a championship. In fact, if you trade fairly, it helps you win championships because people will deal with you. The trade may end up being lopsided due to circumstances, but at least make it fair when you do it. Nobody wants to pay for your trash and it offends them when you ask!!!!!

    It also makes me mad because I always worry I will inadvertantly hit the wrong button and then have to clear it up with the league.

    Oh, and the talk doesn't stay within the league. So if you want that rep, knock yourself out. But don't bother me with it. Generally, if I don't respond to your trade offer with a comment...it's because I couldn't think of a civil one.

    Thank you...I'm done ranting...for now.

    P.S. I thought that my offer of Blount and Nelson for Nash was more than fair.

    I told you...I declined by accident. Please give me another chance. Send it again. Best offer I've had this month. I'll be waiting.

    A deal like that only comes along once in a life time. You snooze, you lose.

    Sometimes you gotta realize that its a starting point in negotiations. People are going to bid low for your guys. A few trade offers i got, i did look to see if i could make a counter offer. Some others...well its great for a laugh i suppose.

    You want me to throw full ones instead? That would hurt. Plus why waste it?

    Really? That's not a GREAT deal for me?

    Wow, and here I was kicking myself for picking Nash in the first round when I could have grabbed Nelson number one and Blount in the next round.

    I dun get this fantasy stuff.:nerd2:
