    Man, I've got 12 three pointers made and I still have JRich and BDiddy (if healthy) to play tonight.

    Unfortunately, I'm giving up points like crazy to Tater Toddlers.

    And I can't buy a block tonight. Krstic had 5 in the opener and comes back tonight with zero.

    GO GOLDEN STATE!

    My big men are giving me nothing. Kyle Korver "punked" me again tonight with 0 points as did as Jerome James and McDyess. Thank goodness Pierce came up big in the loss:laugh:

    Microwave, I do not recall picking Williams he found his way on my team during the draft. If you have players from bad teams seems like their stats will be inflated.

    Slippy, I made it a priority to draft AI. Sure his FG% is usually low but not much lower than your typical point. Plus he has a high assists/TO ratio not to mention he will avg over 30PPG if healthy. Combine him with almost any SG and they will outscore other guard combo's.

    BK playing as I had hoped. 14p and 15 dimes tonight for the Bobcats. Very underrated.

    Camby getting more minutes with Nana out, 6 blocks already.

    And that Eddie Jones pick up off waivers was right on cue, draining 5 three's and 25 pts.

    Someone also laughed at Mark Blount after I picked him up. Not so now...

    I like the savyness of the GM's in the league. :thumb: the FA/WW movement is interesting to look at. People are really combing for sleepers.

    I keep a list of guys I think are coming on or have the potential to come on. There are some guys worth picking up out there if your roster is weak. Right now, none of them upgrade my players, not to say that my roster is perfect, but they may down the line.

    The trick is to make sure you are clicking the little bullets next to your player's name to see what their latest news is. That is, if you aren't stupid like me and play BDiddy when he is not going to play.

    Frikkin BDiddy. When he plays, he's a top 5 PG. WHEN HE PLAYS.

    Quick tip:

    Don't be afraid to use the Yahoo Fantasy B-Ball "Watch" option for players you are interested in. So much activity happens throughout the week that it is easy to lose sight of a player you have your eye on.

    I love that feature. I have the memory of a strainer. The big stuff usually stays in there but the little stuff passes right through.
    :laugh:

    The watch feature is very helpful.

    NBa.com's Courtside live omitted darko milicic from the lineup so he never registered on the pop-up.

    Caron Butler had a knee contusion and is day to day...yahoo had nothing on it...Nobody seemed to have anything...I finally found a foot-note somewhere with that info...i kept him in because D-mase was killing me.

    My indiana Guards went off today but lost. at least they could have forced an overtime to pad the stat line :P . Boston...bunch of chumps...should have had double overtime...they were scrubbing it up against Okafor and the bobcats.

    rumor is that he strained a quad and is day to day.

    Well, at least that diaper sucker Larry Hughes finally lit it up in the 4th Q. What a LOSER.

    Bruce Bowen had an awesome stat line. I'm happy I sat him.
    0-4, 0-1, x-x, 0-0-0 1TO 0-0-0-0
    How the heck can you play 25 minutes as a starter on the world champs and muster a single single? And it was a TURNOVER!

    @Darth Tater - I ran the #s, it is going to be really close and probably decided on Sunday. If BDiddy doesn't go and go off, I'll probably lose. You have more guys playing...

    Yeah, I saw that. I think over the whole week I had more playing but I'm not sure. It's really not fair. It helps you on turnovers and doesn't affect the percentage categories, but it really hurts you in the remaining 6 categories.

    I can't tell if our guys are playing well, mediocre, or lousy. All I know is that it's close. Your guys really seemed to rebound well tonight, but again, I dunno what is considered good. Well, you're a good man who knows basketball so I don't mind a butt kicking too much. I'll accept my loss with dignity...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!:hurt:
