    Thanks. Somehow I figured it might end up this way. You and Webz are definitely forces to be reckoned with. Should be a fun playoffs. Scoe' thanks for the last week record boost. :stirthepot:

    9-0 shutout.

    Looks like big brother is the fantasy bball guru in the family. muhahahahahahaha! :)

    Okay, that's enough gloating.

    I'll be writing a playoff preview this evening for the open league, would someone mind doing a similar one for Advanced (FD?). I'll make sure to post the final standings and playoff seedings in both. Congrats to all the managers who made the playoffs. Excellent work. To those who faltered, winning the NIT is not a bad consolation prize. Finish up strongly.

    You can also expect some awards to be given out as well. Regular season MVP, Rookie of the Year, etc....

    Another year, another last minute battle with #1 to get to the finals. Last year, we came down 5-4 on the final day, and he won it by one or two 3 pointers, as his guys shot uncharacteristically well from 3 and my guys uncharacteristically poorly.

    With injuries completely decimating my team lately, I had to go out on a limb this week. I want to thank all the guys who led me to a 2nd place regular season finish who I had to drop this week(damn I wish I coulda played Webz one more time for the regular season title!). I threw 57 games at #1 this week, compared to his 42, and it may pay off.

    #1 is a damn good fantasy manager (best I've seen in fact, based on two years of experience), and I can't tell you how good it will feel if I can sneak past him into the finals, especially after he robbed me last year.

    Good luck today, #1.

    James Jones can't save you.

    Slippy calls it "bum rushing"

    I call it "rent a player"

    Technically it's called "streaming"

    I say Whatever it takes to win within the rules...GO FOR IT!
    I know I do.:MusicBigGrin:

    Wow. One BL and one 3Pt. One could really develop a psychosis after losing like this two years in a row. Actually, I feel pretty good right now. Think I proved my mettle, taking the best to the ropes, to the absolute edge. Hopefully made you sweat a little yesterday. In the end, too many injuries to key players did me in. Losing MMiller, Al Jeff and BROY in the last couple of weeks was a killer. The team I drafted, plus a few key pick-ups had enough talent to take #1 on straight, but I just couldn't keep them on the court.

    All in all, a solid campaign for FD. Will be back next year, looking for a little revenge. Good luck to #1 and Dreb's in the finals.

    Kinda relieved that fantasy ball is over, and ready for Pistons playoff basketball!

    Congrats Dre. You had the better team this week. There are always excuses to make, but that's just part of the game. I'm satisfied with the regular season crown, but still disappointed to not make the final.

    I'll just have to focus on my sleepers who knocked off no.1 seed micro to make the final.

    its funny how the playoffs pan out. my open league team which didn't even make the top 6 would have beaten my advanced team 6-3 this week and dre 9-0.

    well, dre and #1, good luck. FD, you ready for some consolation battling?

    Thanks for the battle Webz. It was close and my slim 5-4 lead held up the whole weekend. I panicked mid week, when Tmac and Ty Chandler and even old reliable Desmond Mason all went down with injuries.

    All three missed two games and even though Tmac was available yesterday, I deactivated him two minutes prior to the game thinking that he would shoot 10-for 30 to help the Rockets end their losing streak and you would squeeze out a 5-4 victory over me because of my slim lead in the FG percentage which was ony 12 pts to begin the day. Plus it didn't help matters that Labron started off the day going 5-16. Well as it turns out Tmac went 14-28, so I would have been oK whether he played or not.

    Hopefully my boys can put it together this week and knock off the defending champ #1:pray:
