    honestly guys, is there a way to halt that trade? M.C.P.G. accepted it after it was clear that Gerald Wallace was injured, while I proposed it before his injury. While it is still unknown what exactly he is suffering from, I certainly him as long as I don't know what kind of injury it is.

    All of the others GM's have the option to vote against or veto the trade. I have never done it before, so don't know if one vote does it or more than 5 etc??

    1/3 of the league needs to veto a trade. There is nothing against the rules for accepting a trade as a result of getting new information. The beauty of a vote based league is that if enough people agree with your position, it can be vetoed. Good luck.

    Side note... (both of the players suck)

    One dude is affected by Tobias Harris' return, the other is affected by Boston purposely tanking games as well as age.

    I don't think Wallace's injury is serious. He may not even miss a game.

    In summary, LA Dre you are my Pistonsforum.com fantasy basketball nemesis. I'm not the slightest bit surprised that our matchup would be determined by free throws. Well done, my friend. :)

    Tyreke Evans is a bum...how did he win rookie of the year a few seasons back? He killed me this week in every category. I am still suffering from my Joe Dumars bonehead move of dumping Afflolo after one game and picking the Lakers Xavier Henry who had the worst results of any of my players and I finally had to waive dump him tonight.

    As usual there is no one in the free agent pool to trust, so hopefully my players pick it up this week.

    your Afflalo is my Markieff Morris whom I dropped instead of the likes of Gerald Wallace, Javale McGee (who did nothing this season instead of fracturing his hin) or some other weak player who does not contribute at all. After all, the first games of the season are pretty crucial and it's always a hard choice to decide who needs to be dropped. I probably would have dropped Afflalo too since the Magic are quite loaded in their backcourt; I did not even bother picking him up because I expected a rather bad season from him.

    I coached myself out of a bigger victory. In retrospect, I still fill like it was the best move considering how my two players were performing throughout the season. Always hard to see that much production sittin' on the pine though...

    Markieff Morris is had a great week coming off the bench for the Suns. His brothers is still not there yet, but I have him on my watch list.

    Can't remember a time where there was so many impact free agents on the wire at the same time. I love it! Anything can happen in this game. Jordan Hill for president! :)

    I'm all on the John Henson train! 5 blocks in his debut, he's the new Sanders minus barfights!

    webz is not on the internet. He is hiking in south east asia right now and can't set his lineups for another few weeks I think.

    I got him this week, and I think he must have found an internet cafe somewhere - lineup looks set for the next seven days at least.

    Course if the level of play of my team stays up, it might not matter - Hibbert only needed two blocks to tie the block category all by himself last week. At some point the rest of the league is going to figure out not to toss the ball up in his face, but maybe not this week.
