    Here we go, dba. You're missing Bargnani and I'm missing George Hill, Morrow (still can't figure why Yahoo sometimes doesn't list injured guys with a medic flag) and, might as well throw Murphy in there cuz Avery rarely plays him :frusty:

    Team Debt is on a 3 week losing streak. I put the odds at 3:1 it continues :nerd2:

    And there is the games played gap - 33 for you to 27 for me. I thought about giving the team a rest and at least winning turnovers. Maybe we should look into average game scoring.

    Who is this person?

    Hint: The person is in our league and sends daily offers to other owners hoping somebody is going to hit the "accept" button by mistake because they are laughing so hard they miss the "Hell NO - reject" button?:pound::pound::pound:

    Oh dba it was so....shocking. To be up that high in points and to have already accepted in my heart that I was going to lose 4-5 and then to open up the StatTracker on Sunday and see to my absolute horror that the Sprockets had 10 players suited up and ready to hit the hardwood on a SUNDAY! AARGH!!!

    I was just beside myself. Watching my lead evaporate basket by basket and most of them by the PISTONS!....THE PISTONS!...Etu, Prince? Etu, Charlie? I swear when that game went into overtime I was losing my mind.

    I lost points by 5 points. Without my team leader Stephen Curry my team soldiered on bravely through the week with big contributions by some (Reggie Williams) and frankly some substandard performances by others (I'm looking at you AGAIN Darren Collison) and I was so proud of them and then there was the

    SUNDAY SPROCKETS DELUGE OF POINTS! certainly the day the most amount of text messages between Darth and I have ever been exchanged:

    Me: OMG 7 more points and I lose points!
    Darth: So close. This sucks.
    Me: OMG Prince just scored again! The games is going into OT! I can't take it.

    and much more of the same.

    One thing is for sure. I am really nuts over this stuff.:nerd2:

    But Congratulations on the Win! And I do mean it. I won't make the mistake again of not counting up the games at the beginning of the week and knowing where I stand. Every mistake gets added into the learning curve and someday I will be AWESOME at this. :):pound:

    Kim you are doing great so far hanging in the top 6....you made a couple of key aquistions the past week even Kirk Heinrich who I call myself letting go temporary and hoped that he would clear waivers in 2 days so I could get him back but you grabbed him.

    I found out at the last moment yesterday that Brandon Jennings would be out 4 weeks and although this may help my shooting %, it will definately hurt in the 3 ball and assists categories. I really use Kirk now.

    I am short so far in both of those categories and the biggest deal is the three point shooting where I had over 35 last week and stuck on 4 so far in two days of action..

    Pluses and minuses to that. Like this week for me when I knew on Sunday I had absolutely no chance because my guys play so many fewer games.

    Of course, that doesn't stop them from teasing, like Beno's 34 and 7 game last night. Almost makes up for Gasol and Bogut beating each other senseless and combining for only 30 points.

    I survived the Motown thrashing and was able to grab one point as my scorers came through on the last day.

    Unfortunately three of my guys Tyreke Evans, Jared Dudley and Rudy Fernandez shot 2-12, 2-9 and 4-13 dis-respectively tonight to kill my chance of grabbing another point in the FG % as I did lead that category at one point during the early evening for at least 10 minutes tonight:)

    So I ~ another victim of the thee jokester Motown, promise to rebound against the Debt team next week...

    Rascoe just told you that because he is trying to create a warm and fuzzy environment here at pf.com...blah, blah, blah. He sent me a PM and told me that he is looking forward to seeing my team crush yours this week. :pound::stirthepot:

    Hey, Dre. I was lucky to lose only 4-5. Ironically, if Dirk was able to play or Jackson hadn't missed a game, I'd have probably lost 3-6. Congrats :)

    Yeah I was 2 steals and 2 three balls away from going 7-2, as that was how the score was most of the week. But alas, your guys caame through on Sunday when when my guys such as Tyreke Evans decided to take the day off and Micheal Beasley re-injured an ankle in the second qtr and took the rest of the game off..
