Speaking of "what in the world were you thinking?", why did you make two moves on Tuesday?
Ricky Davis was out there and I figured I'd sign him.
MKG has been ballin lately. I added him to keep him out of the "young keeper" pool so I might be able to draft him in the fall. I'm not sure how it works but I was under the assumption that other teams that might be lacking a YK would be combing the wire this week to find a suitable candidate. I'll admit, I'm playing some defense by "hoarding" him.
Oh, I see. Two can play that game....
I picked up Shaq earlier in the season for his comedic presence in the locker room, but it inspired the team to lose so I cut him.
Congrats to the Squirrels. Good season, good final week.
I didn't think I had any chance when I saw the game differential you started with the last week. With the final impact of injuries and sit-outs it got whittled down to five more player games for the Squirrels. Still though, if the Cogs had come through with even slightly better than average shooting we could have pulled it out by winning FG%. But Holiday's 22% (2/24, 3/14, 7/17) shooting for the week and Parker's 40% were too much for the other guys to make up.
Congrats on the bronze medal. Perhaps playing Wade and then having him sit out all 4 games wasn't my best decision.
Thanks, though I'm still undecided whether 3rd place is worth cheering. I started Noah as well. Doh. Next year I'll have more time to look after the needs of my team. My players probably look at me like Donald Sterling after this season seeing as I let my German scout Mr. Auto Draft do my selections.
Congrats to the Squirrels. It won't be so easy next season. Guaransheed.
This has been wildly entertaining. Congrats to the Squirrels and thanks for the sweet write ups.
So BDL is our champ?
Yep. I've also assigned this years trophies in the league.
League champ: Denver Squirrels
Regular season winner: Orbit City Cogs
Most Improved team: Talbot Street Mooseheads (the 2 expansion teams exempt)
Two more important points
1. You can still make changes to your team up until April 20. From then, the league is in off-season and no moves are allowed. If you currently don't have any decent young players on your roster, you better do a quick search of the FA list now (hint, hint).
2. There is NO IR ALLOWED in the off-season. You must move any player in the IR to your roster if you want them for keeper consideration for next season, otherwise they will be cut. If you don't want them, its fine to leave them there to be cut.
Dude's gonna be insufferable.
Championship banner updated. Congrats BDL.
You got that right.
I like to thank my lead scout Mr. Otto Draught. I hear he was contracted by a number of teams this past season. Mr. Otto, found me a bunch of guys I didn't really like but I couldn't deny that they were better that what I usually pick. Still, the Mooseheads turned a modest profit since we streamlined the lockerroom, training room and coaching staff. Next year we'll take a page out of the Pistons playbook: Justin Bieber! feat. the Talbot Mooseheads vs. Sandwich Microwaves in the side gym. Don't foget to check out the game during one of the Bieb's 7 lengthy intermissions! Moosehead Basketball!!
I didn't feel the need to go to work today.
...work is now beneath me.
I'm better at fantasy basketball than you guys.
BDL, did you say you were in marketing? I sometimes shoot videos. We should collaborate on a championship video for the D.S.
Here is my story board and treatment: ... ...

Squirrels beat undefeated Cogs – Denver wins PFKL championship!
Orbit City, IL; On a night where everything had to go right; everything did.
Against a team that nobody thought could ever be beat; the Squirrels prevailed!
16 Livers …1 Goal!
Today, the Denver Squirrels are champions of the PFKL.
“(Expletives be hatin’ on us all year dawg!” stated a malt liquor soaked Rufus Henry. “Know what I gots ta say to da hatas? …suck my (expletive )!” “End of interview mutha(expletive)!” added the coach as he proceeded to beat a reporter with his prosthetic leg while yelling “Beat reporter mutha(expletive)s! …BEAT reeeeepppowta beeeotches!”
For the embattled coach, this victory was more than just a championship. Rufus Henry has been criticized at every turn. Pundits would claim: “Your team is a bunch of drunks.” “…You spend too much watching low-grade pornography and not enough time studying game film.” “Your team lacks any and all forms of professionalism, decency and discipline”.
To these critics, Henry holds up one solitary finger.
Today, his Squirrels are number one.
“Coach Rufus has had to overcome quite a bit and this is absolutely awesome to see” commented Squirrels General Manager, BallDon’tLie as he puffed on a large cigar in the visiting locker room. The Squirrels GM has always tried to remain in the background but often finds himself in the forefront defending his team and their behavior. “We’ve got a great group! People might criticize our drug and alcohol use and team’s legal transgressions but these guys are great role models for kids” explained the GM. “The guys on this team are prime examples that you can do all the wrong things and be a really bad person and still come out on top! …That’s just a great message man!”
‘Fair’ play or ‘exceptional’ play
“Who wants to be ‘Fair’? ‘Fair’ means average. If someone has a ‘Fair’ day; they’ve had an ‘average’ day. We’re interested in being exceptional - not fair” explained Squirrels PG Mike Conley.
So how does one of the greatest upsets in sport history happen?
“Our staff tried to look at Xs & Os but came up empty every time. We knew we had to think outside the box. Orbit City is a great team. We won this thing on the court but it’s what we did off the court that really made the difference” stated Conley in the post-game press conference.
An anonymous report was found that illustrates initiatives that the Squirrels deployed to gain an advantage over the Cogs. The following was included in this report:
Jrue Holliday’s brother Justin was hired to secretly slip the Cogs’ PG large doses of LSD hence destroying Jrue’s ability to shoot a basketball (2-24 shooting on Wednesday).
Local gang members were paid to assault Tony Parker resulting in injuries to his neck and ankle.
Squirrels’ forward Tobias Harris placed a dead hooker in the trunk of Al Horford’s car and made an anonymous call to police notifying them of the trunk’s contents. Horford was taken into custody and missed game 7.
We reached out to several members of the Denver Squirrels’ staff for comment but no one granted our requests.
Parade Route Set
The Denver Squirrels continue the celebration on Wednesday afternoon with an official championship parade. Unlike other celebrations of this nature from past Denver teams (Broncos, Avalanche), the Squirrels have once again decided not to utilize the typical parade route through the heart of downtown Denver and the restaurant district of LoDo. The Squirrels parade will begin in the Park Hill neighborhood just West of Colfax Avenue and end at 5-Points just Northeast of Downtown.
“Our fan base is largely comprised of people from these lower income neighborhoods so this is our way of thanking them for their support” added a team spokesman.
The Parade will conclude in front of the Rossonian Hotel with a three-story bonfire, and beer-tent. This is a free event for the entire family. Heavy snows are expected today so Squirrels officials are urging fans to equip themselves with large quantities of hard liquor to help fight the unseasonably cold temps.
