    Congrats to everyone. Poor Linwood was so close to winning. Close like I was in week 3.

    Mbabb and Superstarov are coming on. Supes dumped most of his roster and made out good!

    Congrats to ALMOST everyone. I got hammered 2-7 and expect more of the same this week (44 potential games to himat's 51 will not be conducive to winning many categories) . :(

    guess its another good week for me besides last week against micro all my opponents have had less games than me, but it's going to suck when my guys won't play as much late in the season.:doh:

    I'm now at the bottom of every category. Funny how they make up for the lack of active players by turning the ball over more.

    That can't be true. I have to be at or near the bottom for quite a few catagories myself. Somehow I have a bunch of turnover prone big men who don't care too much for rebounding.

    Mismanagement hasn't helped, either. I just dropped J. McInnis from Jersey and picked up M. Jaric from Minnesota. I don't really know much about either of these guys, buy McInnis hasn't been impressive, and I already have another Net. Figured if I added a different team player, at least I would get something out of my off nights. Then I looked at the schedule. Looks like Minny has nearly a week off!

    Oh well. Maybe I can figure it out by the time Shaq returns. Then you cats better watch out!

    we got great teams when we can field all the players. Look at miami, losing shaq was huge. I got AK-47 back and by christmas I should be getting competative with Ghill and Livingston adding TO's to my score.

    Will Desmond mason ever learn to play on NOK? Will Tinley string 2 decent games together? Telfair...I may drop him for Carlos.

    I made the unfortunate mistake of thinking Kwame would be more than a tempting scrub.

    Here is a tip. Before you drop a guy, make sure you do your due dilligence.

    Is the guy you are picking up going to get the same minutes? Does he have injury concerns? How has he played in ALL 5 of his last games?

    What's he like historically? Is this a contract year?

    Someone offer me a trade. I've got lots of good players, and you just might catch me in a generous mood.

    Micro, I look at your team and think "they don't look too good to me", but then I see the numbers you put up daily as you kick tail and I'm like "How the hell is he doing that?" lol

    Yeah, someone offer me a trade too. I have too many shot blockers. Somebody want one? Przybilla, Foyle, Kaman, Mihm, and Haywood.

    I also have Bibby, Wade, A.Miller, Stoudamire, Arenas, and Hinrich at guard. Any offers?

    Ahh, very tempting. I still seem to be semi competitive, so I might wait for the return of Shaq and the midseason "Rasheed Wallace" deal.... or:confused: :eyebrows:

    I took what I got in the draft and I only made moves for better players. I also looked at what my guys can do well and tried to add players that do that. I know I will suck at %s and TOs, so I had to be very focused on the remaining categories.

    If you can believe it, I made 2 trades and I have waived the returns from both of them. I gave up Boris Diaw and Cutino Mobley and maybe someone else.

    I had Rafer Alston. If he gets healthy before T-Mac, thats a good pickup for someone.

    For as good as my team is, I'm 1 game over .500. But last week was amazing. My #s were good enough to beat anyone in the league.

    My draft team was kickin on blocks and rebunds but not much else. I figured I had to shore up at least the steals and 3pts to be remotely competative.

    Now I'm stacked with SF's...and my guards all suck

    I can't wait! Clash of the Titans. Maybe we should look into some trades. I haven't looked at your team, but I suck with the turnovers. If you have some cats that can't hold on to the ball but excell in other areas, let me know. Maybe we can work something out.

    Caron Butler. right now.

    I'm a bad GM because I Like my guys and have a hard time letting them go. I let go of West and Smush because they had good minutes but weren't reliable enough. Calderon is cracking 30 mpg now.

    I know how Micro feels about darko...but even though my team is short handed, I'm sure he'll do at least as good with 10 minutes what Kwame does with 25. :P
