    Heh, I guess I kinda forgot about the League for a while... Sorry. It probably wasn't responsible of me to sign up, with full knowledge that I'm a total douchebag.

    I was playing with a bunch of guys I didn't even draft, anyway. Felt false. Seems like whoever's the best at the beginning of the season is the best at the end. Doesn't look to be any way to move up in the standings other than taking a giganic risk, so it's not like my team was going anywhere. Or am I missing something?

    I'll start playing again, though, through to the end of this season.

    So I finally gave up on Ike and Steve...

    Hope I can make things interesting this week, DK. I'm without Baron for another 2 weeks, but if you're without Emeka this week, I might have a chance...

    My Teams

    Team Name League Name
    Frank's Ball Busters American Basketball Association
    Create or join a new league NOW!

    Is anyone else having some odd problems with the site ?
    Since yesterday whenever I try to add a player or adjust my lineup for different days, live scoring, basically anything it takes me back to the main log in page like above...

    Why Not Us ?

    I haven't had a chance to even look at my lineup since Sunday - hopefully I will tonight since it's a full slate. I knew Okafor got hurt over the weekend but haven't checked injury reports or anything.

    I didn't have that problem but I don't think it updated scores last night - at least it looks awful similar to yesterday and in the KL when I check yesterday's scores it comes up 0.

    Happen to know something about the play-off format we'll be using, DK?

    Rasky and I couldn't find anything on the league's page itself, but maybe we overlooked something .

    Hmm me thinks there was a glitch in the NBA.com sites perhaps ?
    I'm not having the problems now though.

    Not a thing - when I went into the setup page in the KL the only playoff option I could select is number of teams.

    I assume the teams with the best records will get in but beyond that, I got nothin'.

    Ok, well we'll just have to waite and see then... there goes a little bit off my "planning" to more or less "pick" an opponent .

    Bit odd though that they have been so vague about the play-offs, don't you think? Weird.

    At least at this point I'd call this game competitive.

    This is a 20-game regular season, right?

    If so, I'm probably going to end up at .500.

    Yeah, always funny when two teams are exactly tied.

    Hoping to stay within 50 tonight, and make a comeback in the weekend.

    Anthony Parker's ankle injury is not making it any easier though...I'm getting too many injuries. But if that's what it takes to have a healthy team come playoff time, so be it.

    I feel you Rasky. Having sort of the same problem... been missing two or more games the last few weeks from several of my top-players (Okur, Kidd, Butler, Mo Williams and Lewis). IF I can finally get everyone 100% healthy again I would be pretty happy .

    Can't complain too much though .

    Edit: wow! You guys ARE going head-to-head here with 323.5 each!

    David Lee is missing a ton of games due to a freaking sprained ankle. Gimme a break.

    Glad to see we've opened this game up a little.

    I have pretty much no shot with Okafor out - none of my players is worth much more than 20 points. I'll be lucky to get 80 today.

    Have to get this off my chest...

    I hold on to Steve Francis for practically the whole season, put up with all his non-performances, do all the hard work but get nothing in return...and finally, after months of patience, give up on him. Of course that sleezy BC picks him up and right away enjoys the results (among which the kissing of a grandmother) of all my work ethics...it isn't fair!

    Hey, I feel your pain! I had something compareable last year with Reggie Evans who started out very well and then all of a sudden would get like 5 minutes a game for months. Then about a half day before the trading deadline I dropped him (didn't think he would be moving to another team in the Real-NBA, there weren't ANY serious rumours anymore either), and three hours later I get "Breaking News" that Evans got traded to Denver!

    I was pretty pissed at the time I can tell you, especially in the play-offs when I had to play the team that had picked him up (beat them though, so that made it just a little better) and I saw him score really good numbers ... numbers which I could have used very well in the finals against Pacertom.

    Realistically though having Evans on my team then still wouldn't have made the difference. His team was really THAT strong.

    Anyway Rasky, your team is DEFINITELY a contender even though you like to discount it and go a little more under the radar .

    Also, Rasky, thank you VERY MUCH (again!!! I can't state this often enough!!!) for dropping Earl Watson
    . Damn, that was a nice pickup this year .

    Yippee!

    I finally scored higher than burnzone!!!

    Of course I had to invite him to the Keeper League and give him a crap team - and he only had that crap team for one day last week but you gotta take what you can get.

    I had a similar situation with Andray Blatche. ****ing Jordan, refusing to play him until I finally gave up and dropped him.

    Btw, I had a relatively easy schedule for the final three games, but I'm hurting so badly right now w/o Wade, Lee, and Noc that I'm going to lose them all. And that was with Brian Cook having an amazing week for me.

    Talk about backing into the playoffs.

    I had a pretty tough early season schedule aswell as a januari/februari that had some serious opposition as a consequence my last 3-4 games were not too difficult, while I knew some of my main competitors still had some strong opposition in their stretch towards the play-offs.

    I kinda felt that way about Tony Allen but then he went an' injured himself so I didn't feel too bad then. heh heh heh. BC's been good with the wire this year. I held on to Allen so long because I kept thinking the Celts would put him in the rotation. Unfortunately, when Allen was hot and getting minutes, I'd dropped him and really needed another guard. So it goes...

    I'm just hoping Okafor plays next week. I THINK if my entire team was ever healthy I might be dangerous - but that happy circumstance hasn't taken place since December.
