    Pretty quiet in here. I'm sure Harden's owner is doing the cabbage patch and the running man right now. :)

    I am not happy with any of my guards with the exception of Jennings and Bledsoe. I have no 3 point shooters and already had to dump a center and PF who were taking up space. (Perkins and Jamison).

    I am so LOST!

    I do not know who ANY of these players are and have no clue whatsoever what to do with my roster!

    All I know is that I should NOT entertain any trade offers from that varmint Ralphie the horse trader! :)

    An even scarier thought is that you are currently leading your division. It's a sad statement for those teams.

    I start thinking that some of you automatically reject my offers because of the reputation Darth imposed on me!

    LOL. You have earned your reputation. :)

    I'll give you CV and Daye for LeBron and Wade?

    Yeah, Ralphie. I'm quite sure that is why he refused your generous offer of Milsap for his Kobe. :p

    Millsap has started to shoot 3s now, which makes him a multy-contributor! He is Shawn Marion 2.0 now! Plus, he's only a few ranks behind Kobe in the Yahoo rating.

    Think of it like this, Fritos Bandito breath:

    1. If Laimbeer had wanted Milsap he would have taken him with either the 12th pick (Kobe) or with the 17th pick (harden). But he passed and let you take Milsap with the 19th pick.

    2. Milsap is still ranked BELOW Kobe.

    3. The season is in its infancy.

    4. So what could have possibly happened to make Laimbeer want Milaap over Kobe now??

    :)

    Millsap makes threes now. Of course, Kobe makes more, but still.

    Kenneth Faried rebounds more than Lebron James; still, no one would do that trade. Your argument is kinda flawed.
    Sometimes, you realize that the overall roster is not the way you want it to be; you notice you lack rebounds, blocks or whatever. Often enough, this becomes obvious after the season starts. That is why I traded Batum for Lee, although Batum is better; I was in need of a big. For instance, if you snatch a great player in later rounds, another player you drafted earlier may become obsolete/a trade asset to fill holes. That COULD have been the case for Laimbs; so I do not perceive my offer as ridiculous. Millsap contributes in a variety of categories (with the possibility of treys, if he keeps shooting them) and Lambs already has a prime SG in Harden. So I thought, heck, let's give it a try, maybe he prefers a big over a SG because he needs rebs.

    Except Milsap is a balanced player versus a win you a week type player. One would have to be extremely foolish to make that trade. lol. In any given week, Kobe can give you top 5 stats. Milsap will never produce that on a team filled with bigs especially when he has two people on his team that come off the bench that are arguably better than him.
