    Re: Trial League Trash Talk and other Exchanges

    Having the 11th and 14th picks in the draft I predicted that I might be able to land Bosh and Nash - which I did. I was a bit bummed having 2 picks so close together because I miss out on big chunks of the draft at a time.
    ie. solid big man wave in the 40-50 range

    It also left me little time to figure out who to select with my 2nd line of picks with only 3 picks between including an auto-drafting micro.

    I ended up taking a few guys with upside. Looking purely at last years stats my team looks weak in some areas, but if my 'upside' picks such as Nelson, Granger and Claxton work out like I hope, I should be able to compete.

    But all draft I just felt like I could never get the guy I wanted from the position I wanted, the way the picks fell for me were just out of sync. When I wanted a PG there were only quality bigs in that range, and when I wanted a big, there were only PG/SG's so to select the position I wanted would have meant I would have had to stretch for guys. In the end I just took the best available player more often than not.

    Hopefully I will get the draft order I want in the 'big game' Advanced, but I'm still confident of competing well in Trial.

    Motown's crew looks ominous, worthy of Rick Kamla himself. Also props to Tater and Slippy's squads.

    Thanks Webz. I think highly of your abilities to field a team so I feel a little more confident about my squad. :cheers:

    For the record, I rank Tater and Webz as having the best draft outside of my own. Job well done fellas.

    Looks pretty bad. I wasn't at the draft because of a basketball workout, but it seems as if everyone hated it. Anyways I'm deep at forward and weak at center. PM me if you want a trade.

    No doubt. They should get a room so they can pat each other's bums in private.

    I have learned. You will see.

    This is gunna be a rags to riches story. Owner has to autodraft, makes unlikely trades and savvy free agent moves to win title in the league that hurt everyone to play in.

    Oh yes, indeed!

    I see that we have the first week matchup Roscoe. I think it's great that we won't have to wait to see the battle royale, as the two powerhouses in the Going To Work Conference set the tone early.

    I am confident that once your team is detroyed, you will dilligently rebuild to become a true contender. (for second place)

    You will have to join forces to even compete with the Going To Work conference.

    One of the best cartoons EVER!

    But while we join forces like the indominable Voltron, you guys joining forces will resemble something more like Captain Planet

    The idea behind the series was to create an entertaining action program that was meant to make viewers aware of environmental hazards.

    Psssh. Please. Your Voltron will resemble an undersized robot with one arm that shoots, and another arm that shoots, and a leg that shoots, and another leg that shoots, with a head that is injury prone.

    You can watch old episodes. I might get a classic Voltron T-shirt.

    You guys joining forces will kinda be like the Lions, Knicks, MSU Spartans, and Atlanta Hawks banding together.:cold:

    The whole is worse than the sum of the parts.:pound:

    You fellas should just make some pom poms and watch the pros in the Bad Boys division show you how it's done.

    :cheerlie-GOAL: <------Linwood, Roscoe, Winless, and Slippy.

    Re: Trial League Trash Talk and other Exchanges

    Funny, the best anyone in that joke of a conference could be in our league is a ball boy. I'd be surprised if any of you guys even managed a victory against us. Besides, everyone knows that if you assemble a bunch of crap together..it becomes nothing but a pile of poop. I think the Bad Boys will have to play our first inter-divisional game with gas masks on in order to bare the smell of those stinky teams you guys have assembled. P - U! :yuck:

    Re: Trial League Trash Talk and other Exchanges

    Ok, I admit leaving someone in charge of my draft picks was a huge mistake. Shawn Livingston is nice, but it will be a few years perhaps before he is a 1st round pick!

    However, don`t for a minute think that the Destroyers are finished before the seasons starts. I will go on record right now and say someone will want a Destroyer or two before the season ends and I will just smile!

    A front line of Camby, Jermaine O Neal, and Ron Ron is not that bad (if the injury Gods are nice) not to mention Ariza and K-Mart might have something to prove this year.

    Q-Richardson, Juan Dixon and Fat a.. Antoine Walker shooting 3`s is not too shabby. I also added Okafur, Stevie Franchise, and Manu Ginobili to the mix.

    Brevin Knight should as usual be in the top 5 in the league in APG. So, you can laugh now, but prepare to be destroyed later.

    You are my boy Dre, but you will be the first victim my brother!!!!!!!!!
