    Yeah, you got the bug now. :granade:

    I am the same way. Only worse probably. :)

    I encourage you to try some of our other sports leagues too. We can always use fantasyholics like you.

    Football is a bit different, but hockey and baseball use essentially the same format as basketball.



    Oh and apologies to your significant other...

    Do you know how dirty I felt, the Pistons got robbed, and I am on Yahoo checking Wade's statline. :( Lower than low.

    Roscoe and I am in this case in the same boat...Remember that OT loss to Knicks?...after this I noticed how deep was my satisfaction checking David Lee's stats

    Dear, God don't send me to Hell because of this...

    Looks like the 1st round matchup winners will come down to the last night. The Ghost team is hanging in there. LOL!

    Ghost teams do really well in turnovers.

    This week I really have little chance in FT shooting, threes, or points, maybe a slight chance to win FG%. But the team should be competitive in the other cats. Not a lot of margin for error though.

    Yeah, it's impossible to turn the ball over when half of your lineup doesn't play due to injury. :D

    I'd just like to point out that the Sprockets are up 7-2 after one night's games. Yes, the opposition did only have one player going and my team had four or five, but caring about details like that is a sign of an insignificant mind.

    That's alright. I'm sure that score will change by the time Wednesday is over. :D

    The Ballaholics are on a mission!!!

    From Sprockets up 5-4 after Saturday to losing 4-5 after Sunday. Alas - 2-6-1 on Sunday did them in. Six more or six fewer turnovers and it would have come out different.

    If Cleveland starts to shut down LBJ and Orlando Howard this week it will get pretty interesting in the third place battle.

    DBA, I thought for sure you had me beat. You were even beating me in points up until yesterday, which is a cat I never lose. I though I was in deep trouble. In fact I didn't worry too much about setting my roster correctly for the finals. But, the Ballaholics rallied on Sunday and surprised me. It was close.

    It was a close final. The Ballaholics just could not make up enough ground.

    Congrats, Miša!:cheerleader:


    What is better - to be king of the noobs or simple "rotation player" in advanced league?

    Thanks. It's actually fun in both leagues. But I have to say, that looks like I managed to win the NIT in the advanced league.

    It's funny how the cards fall sometimes. My team dominated pretty much the entire season and then lost in the finals to your squad with an losing record and the lowest playoff seed.:D

    It really is about match-ups most of the time and a little luck sprinkled in. It was a fun experience for my first time participating in fantasy sports. I will definitely be around for next year. :)

    IMO, it is about luck most of the time with a little match-ups sprinkled in. ;)

    Glad to hear you will be back, but why not try hockey or baseball too? :good:

    Because my wife will divorce me. LMAO!

    I spend a ton of time on sports as it is. I just don't think I can do baseball and hockey is at the same time as basketball. She would give me "the look" everytime I would mention something about sports or my fantasy team.:D

    Ah, what the hell............:)
