    My team resembles last years NY Knicks. All that talent, and still can't win anything!

    Man, go away for a few days of endless meetings and the Sprockets start to actually play some. Helps that Kidd is in the top 20 in rebounding.

    If a couple more guys would just break out of shooting slumps, we can be competitive every time out.

    My team had a promising 5-4 lead on Saturday morning, but have crashed and burned their way to a 1-7 defeat in less than 24 hours. Unless Dwight Howard breaks his legs, there is no way to recover. This may be the worst start in PF fantasy history.

    The Sprockets have edged their way back to 0.500, but Duncan hurt and too few games this week are going to be tough.

    You should just drop Duncan. He's dead weight. Pick up someone that plays lots of games.

    Can't drop him now - his free throw percentage has just edged in front of his FG%. If he continues to improve and the Sprockets play a team with really bad free throw shooters, we might actually win the cat. Otherwise you're probably right, just dead weight.

    You had some bad luck with Boozer & Memo out and Howard having a great week.

    BTW...your team kicked my teams' AZZ in the scrub league last week and I'm in dead last over there :cold:

    Duncan missing games, Hinrich still MIA, and now Kidd, perhaps faking medical problems in order to force a trade!!!

    The good news I suppose is that if he does get traded he'll play like a madman the rest of the way. The bad news is that he was already playing like a madman.

    I knew I should have run everyone through the Minnesota Multi-Phasic Personality Inventory before the draft.

    I guess I need to concentrate on my scrub team!

    Having the Utah factor out definitely hurt. Boozer is seriously outplaying my number 1 draft pick right now. Dwight Howard's numbers have been insane! If you wanna get rid of that kid, I'll give you Memo and Ray Allen (just think of the threes!):whistle:

    No thanks...I'm pretty happy with my 3's from Boobie, Manu, Tim Thomas & the others. Besides, Howard was my "bold" #1 pick on a hunch he'd have a breakout year... #1 boards, #1 blks, #2 FG% behind only Kimmie's Biedrins & #6 scoring!

    Unfortunately, he is also #4 in TO's and his FT% is only marginally better than last year...but I can forgive him for that stuff :MusicBigGrin:

    All I need is for Rondo, Prince, and Kenyon Martin to hit 5 more three pointers than Pierce, Odom, and Kaman and I got this week sewed up.

    It could happen. So far this week they've combined for two so they're due.

    Oh sure, now Flip decides not to play Prince 48 minutes when he's on, just when he's 3-3 from 3 and I need a couple more. Come on Flip! Play the starters!

    What a week to have lost Duncan for most of the games. But Hinrich is finally coming on, Iguodala is waking up, and Miller is doing well except against the Pistons. That only leaves Ben W shooting in the sub 400 range, sub 300 range actually, but who's counting.
