Man i wish we could get Dwight Howard. Oh, I must have been dreaming, lmao.
Howard ain't none too good at the line, and we do have even Mohammed over on the bench to lay fouls on the big guy. Another strategy is to go after him on the offense. CWEBB and Sheed between them should be able to get it done. Live inside.
About those dunks by Darko. Milwaukee had most all their bigs out injured. The one they had left, after some foul trouble depleted them even more, they had to put on Howard, leaving Darko defended by a tall shooting gaurd. Orlando went to Darko several straight times at that point, and put the game away exploiting this mismatch. PS, Darko has shot two jumpers in the last two games. Swish, swish. You do have to play him on the perimeter.
What the s**t....
I have not been paying much attention to Darko.
He has modest but ok stats for 24 MPG
8.0 PPG 5.5 RPG 1.1 APG 1.7 BPG 1.57 TO he only shoots 0.449% with 0.614% from the line.
I just thought of a new stat.
The average number of minutes it would take a player to get a triple-double.
Jason Kidd: 45 minutes
Chauncey: 108 minutes
Rip: 98 minutes
Sheed: 185 minutes
Darko: 141 minutes
yeah. jmax has a couple of those. they don't track his either.
what about quadruple double?? i have darko on my fantasy team and i think he would be pretty high on that list. he racks up the points, steals, blocks, rebounds.
how far did that you get you this year?
Same as me: in the non-winners pile.
not far but i won't hesitate to draft him again next year. he provides more than ben wallace though. darko wasn't my downfall in fantasy leagues anyway. this was my first year and i was much too balanced instead of focusing on winning certain categories. this was darko's first real year playing and it was my first real year playing fantasy basketball. me and darko's career will grow together.
Did you bleach your hair and go with the earring?
I'm not trying to be mean or critical. I'm trying to help you here.
Your team was 63-123-3.
You ended up 57.5 games out of first place and were in dead last. The next closest person to you was 13 games ahead of you.
Your problem was not balance. Your problem was having a bunch of guys who had "potential" but very few proven players. The only balance you had was that you were weak in every single category.
Go ahead and draft Darko next year but do NOT waste your first round (second overall) pick on him like you did this year. Draft him a few rounds later if you really want him. He should still be there for you.
I'm glad you had fun in the league, but it's a lot more fun when you field a competitive team.
Drafting him first buried you, Ben was a better fantasy basketball player this year, and I have no doubt that you will get better. To be a good fantasy bball GM requires alot of attention to detail. You excel in that area. Good luck next year. Just don't let your love for your fav get in the way of your drafting. Had I done that, my squad would have been Pistons only and I would have surely been creamed by the competiton.
I know this was meant to be supportive, but you have the subtlty of a train ramming into a house of cards and the sarcasm of a hundred starving comics.
I'm working on it Mo. These things take time.
Anyone care to throw a score out there?
I'll go with 100-88 Pistons.
Darko - 8 pts 5 rebs 1 stl 1 block 2 assists
Orlando wins 105-99.......Darko has 17 points, 11 rebounds............and I don't like him..............
fantasy basketball represents something else to me. it's not fantasy basketball if i don't have darko on my team. i drafted him second because i would have had to pay high prices in trades to get him because everyone in my league knew he was my guy.
win or lose darko's my boy. i disagree about my picks though. i drafted great picks but i didn't trade and pick up free agents well. i'll do better next year.
102 - 99 pistons.
darko 15 pts, 11 rebs, 2 assists, 1 steal, 3 blocks. 2008 fantasy stud.
