    Well, after what I considered a mediocre draft, I have just completed cleaning house like crazy.:pout:

    I was a basement dweller.:confused:

    Nothing exciting at all.:bored:

    Now... I have searched the stats dept of all players, compared them to my guys, and made major moves.:rant:

    I dumped like 8 guys, for some no names, with decent stats.:welcome:

    I won my match-up for the first day with the new Superstarov'd roster. We'll see what happens.:fear:

    Anyone know anything about the guys I picked up?:juggle:

    I can't say I "know" anything about them but I was keeping my eye on Collins, Lue, Pietrus and Giricek (particularly Giricek and Collins). I think you made good moves. Even if only one or two of all those guy you picked up turn out to be of value you didn't give up anything to get them, IMO. You had to do something. Nice job!

    I had Jason Collins in the advanced league for a while. I dumped him last week and picked up Channing Frye. His FG% and FT% were at 30% it was killing me. He would have one good game and then have 2 bad games. Maybe he can snap out of it and do some magic for you. Good Luck!!! :nod:

    I could see why you put ford in over Walker, I didnt put in T-Mac because he was playing the Pistons and by putting him in would make me feel like I was rooting against the Pistons

    well walker has like one good game out of every 4, he's always a risk to put in ... shoulda known he'd do fine against philly. i'm gonna have to stop playin ford though, he kills on turnovers and fg% which i'm last in my league, and i'm #1 in assists by a mile so i don't need that.

    i got kirilenko too slippy, i feel yer pain, but gooden from the cavs is a solid backup, consistent double doubles in points/boards, gives you blocks and rarely fouls or turns it over

    lol, just put him in (except when you play me) and hope he scores 52 points and the Pistons win 95-75.;)

    I enjoyed this game (Houston)much more than the game against Portland where Miles had a good 1st quarter and the game was close, and I couldnt really be upset because it benefited my team. I see what you are saying though

    Micro v Webz

    Great matchup this week Micro. I knew it was going to go down to the wire. I reckon theres a good possibility we'll be seeing each other in the playoffs later on.

    If only Melo didn't go 1-5 from the charity stripe on the final night...

    and my main PG Brevmeister had a terrible week. .214 FG, 12 pts, 14 assists, and missed a game. I should have had assists too!


    OK Tater, you're the next lucky punk, lets go!

    I may need to change my team name to "Mashed potatoes" after this matchup. You have the one team I do not want to face!

    You'll hear no "smack" from me this week! :yield:

    There are 5 -6 categories I usually win and 3 I almost always lose. This week I figure If I win any categories it will be from the 3 I normally lose.

    dude, its going to be a lot closer than you think.
    if we had of played each other last week it would have been 5-4.

    i'm expecting a tough match-up. i take no opponent lightly this early in the season.

    Yeah, but didn't you say your guys had an off week? You got the team! My team is good...but I can't match yours. Hopefully, I can do as well as the Micro man. I'd take 4-5 in a hot second.
