    Nothing I say seems to work. Considering hiring Flip for the rest of the regular season and Larry for the playoffs

    Wow, that trade is highway robbery. Biyombo has the same ranking as DHo for the year....so you're trading Lin straight up for LeBron? Someone has an agenda against winning.

    Do you really think trading LeBron is a good idea? I'd love to hear your rationale for agreeing to this trade.

    The trade gives me more blocks, assists and steals while sacrificing points, 3 pointers, and FT% - none of which is what I was doing good at anyways. Biyombo is a perpetual FA. So, this is a Lin+Howard for LeBron trade really.

    Well, IMO, that was tied for the most ridiculously lopsided trade I've ever seen in all my years in fantasy sports fantasy sports. A very good team just added LeBron for...not much. Now you've won the gold in football last month and you certainly have the inside track on doing the same in this league.

    But I didn't try to block it. Because it is ONLY my opinion. I am not in the business of running another man's team and I have no business doing so. Maybe my opinion is wrong. I have no reason to believe that the trade was not made in good faith. But still...WOW! Congratulations on the deal!!

    Yes. Yes, he did :crying:

    But, the Lebron-Dho-Lin trade was between Walter and Rocastle...

    You're pretty banged up and my guys are having one of their best FG% weeks of the season.

    My two cents:

    I would have never made that trade, but I know that Howard is not evaluated by using avg. player rankings. His inability to make free throws at such a high volume typically destroys his average ranking. There is no doubt that his breakout game tonight validates the trade a bit, but in general you typically don't trade arguably the best fantasy player in the league for anyone. Especially a player that forces you to punt a category. Typically Lebron and Durant are in the untradeable zone because it's extremely difficult to find a player that is so good across the board with no weaknesses. Part of the allure of Jeremy Lin is his FT% which is nullified by who he is coupled with. It will be interesting to see how this pans out. Btw, I am sick of losing...

    So am I, given the fact that I am facing the potential benefactor of the trade this week...

    Wow.... You couldn't make it up.

    Great. I was already getting ridiculed for trading bronbron. Now I won't ever hear the end of it from the vets in this league. *sigh*

    At least this made history, eh? The follow-up to "The Decision": "The Trade". You guys will forever talk about the bonehead rookie that made a stupid mistake and ruined the league. :gettinghanged:

    My hatred for all things LeBron James runs deep.
    I would have made this same deal based on that alone.

    I'd rather lose without LBJ than win WITH him.





    This deal makes the Afflalo for a 2nd rounder look like the Rasheed Wallace deal.

    Nash comes back, Felton breaks a finger. At least he has a real timetable though. Vercinetorix has been day to day for the past two weeks. Maybe Wednesday the pundits say.

    When I had LBJ a couple of years ago I had to hold my nose while I clicked the draft button. I got over it though.
