    Who's the unlucky one who not only HAS Varejao, but held on to him the last month or so because he was only meant to be out "for 6-8 weeks" ?

    Ok Mr. Dre, you got me curious so I checked.

    I wish the better team would NOT win. Because that would be YOU! ;)

    I must have been a little lucky or you unlucky because we have virtually the same records.

    As of this minute, you have 50 player games this week to my 47. Add that to:

    Fg% Dre .456 Darth .454. A wash.

    Ft# Dre .790 Darth.768 very Slight advantage Dre

    3pointers Darth 496 Dre 478 very slight advantage Darth

    Points Dre 6923 Darth 6084 Big advantage Dre

    assists Dre 1466 Darth 1389 Advantage Dre

    Rebounds Dre 2607 Darth 2463 Big advantage Dre

    Steals Dre 547 Darth 465 Big advantage Dre

    Blocks Darth 424 Dre 280 Huge Advantage Darth

    Turnovers Darth 853 Dre 916 advance Darth



    Better Team = Dre

    I can afford a 3-6 loss so I'm really hoping I can get that at least. I'd be very surprised if I get 4. 2-7 or worse is a killer.

    So like I said, I think I should take blocks and turnovers. I'm thinking I could possibly get a percentage category.

    one has to love these things. It's like the Warriors simply being silent on the fact that Bogut had microfracture surgery. What a wasted pick that was.

    Looks like Bogut is coming back next week. Good thing you didn't drop him....

    The Sixers teased that Bynum would be back very soon also - interested to see what happens to him in general, not just here in our Fantasy League.

    I have bad PG karma. First Mo Williams goes down with injury. I trade for Rondo, and he tears up his ACL. With my luck, Lin will break his shooting hand within the next two weeks. :-P

    I blame neither karma nor myself when bad things happen to my fantasy teams. I subscribe to the voodoo doll theory. But perhaps that is only because I've played in leagues with Laimbeer much longer than you guys have?

    My blocks and FG % suffered for a week and a half, because first Pop wanted to rest Duncan, now he has some type of knee injury. Hoping he can come back this week as I am facing Urban Achievers who has six centers on his roster...which explains why he was 10-3 in FG%.

    Lucked out yesterday. Sat Hickson about 15 minutes before the Clippers game. If I'd have played him, I would have won steals but lost FT%. Instead of losing 4-5, I got a 4-4-1 tie

    Really wanted the 6-3 win to move into 8th place. Can't believe that my moves weren't enough. My team is getting tougher every week now. Hopefully Bogut does something for me...

    Could have been a 6-3 win for me over Darth's Mr. Green Genes, if Lamar Kardashian hadn't taken an ill advised three ball shot in garbage time last night. So it appeared that I would finish with a 5-3-1 win. The FG% was tied at .464.

    Instead, later that evening, I got an asterisk saying that Darth had won the tie breaker which means that I finished 5-4.

    *Field Goal Percentage Tiebreaker
    Mr. Green Genes >> 0.46443515
    .............................................................................................................................................
    Rancho Drebabys >>0.46408840
    .........................................................................................................................................,..

    I know it's no big deal, but there's always someone who makes a big deal about the number of losses as opposed to the number ties.....

    damn these Warriors. Didn't mention a word about Bogut having undergone microfracture surgery. Shut him down, announcement he will play soon, then again, in one month, and now he will play TODAY????

    LOL, I knew you were going to go there.

    You should count your blessings. If not for the last game on Sunday you would have LOST 6-3 to Darth. PLUS you Kept adding guys and had a half dozen more players this week (I also mAde several moves but i probably lost as many player games as I gained) PLUS you won THREE very close categories and lost only one.

    YOU were VERY fortunate to go 5-4, Mister!

    It looks like we both will be playoff bound. Last week was tense. For better or worse, I am really hoping we meet again in the playoffs.

    :)

    Yeah I thought I was going down big 3-6 and would be losing for the second straight week. Remember I was the league leader for 7 of the 13 weeks, so I had to make some moves to stay in the top 5....

    I only have 7 of my original draft picks left and my old draft picks are flourushing on other teams:cheeky-smiley-012:. None of the free agents have been giving us anything in the past couple weeks, so yep I have been yanking them faster than Jim Leyland swapping out relievers in the bullpen.

    Indeed. If I don't make the playoffs I won't be a happy camper!
