Hoops, who ya got?

Unread postby e0y2e3 » Wed Oct 21, 2009 12:30 pm

Only doing one league w/ some tight peeps this year. In person auction was last night and missing on agent zero by two bucks late really hurts my feelings on me team. That said my front line and upside is huge, but there are a few teams that I like a lot better at this point.

Jumping the gun early on Tyreke Evans for $3 when Eric Gordan was taken real real late for $4 was like a swift kick to the balls. As was jumping on Augustine on the cheap for a pure keeper play (same thing Evans was) and losing out on a CHEAP agent zero to my boy w/ a $2 higher max bid at that point was crushing. I almost hit on my entire big five w/ AI, Crash, Scola, Big Al and missed the last effing piece in Zero. Still pissed. That said trades will be coming as there are a lot of unbalanced teams out there (like me w/ out Agent Zero).

Start C, C, PF, SF, PF/SF Flex, SG, PG, SG/PG Flex, Gen Flex - 4 person bench
8 categories (no stupid ass turnovers), tie break = points + boards + dimes, winner take all weekly (no split scoring) H2H


C - Biedrens
C - Hibbert

PF/C - Big Al
PF/C - K Love

PF - Scola

PF/SF - G Wallace
PF/SF - J Green

SF/SG - Iggy

SG - Vinsanity

PG/SG - Tryeke Evans

PG - Rus Westbrook
PG - DJ Augustine

So yeah, could really us a PG and have the depth in the front court to pull it in. Until then K-Love is going on the IR and a waiver wire (still plenty of depth) PG is coming in (along w/ Iggy playing SG almost exclusively) and I am going to kill people on the boards, blocks, D end of things by going big at the general flex.

How many teams in the league? In a 12 team league, that's a helluva team - 10 team, just so-so.

Very well-rounded team, with plenty of versatility in there. Not one player that made me go "ugh".

About all those regrets - last year my comp froze on me for a minute during the draft and it autopicked Devin Harris for me. You would not believe how pissed I was. Obviously worked out well for me, and I ended up winning the league.

Yeah, 10 team league. 3 player 3 year keeper, hence the Utes.

And yeah, I am so so on the team right now, one back-court player away from being very happy w/ it, but so goes the brutality of the 5 hour auction. Going to need a few breaks to win the league, but it's hoops and breaks are pretty damn standard.

Clearly 2 teams that are the pre-season class of the league at the moment, I'm in the next tier down (which is large).

Pairing up K-Love and Al doesnt worry you at all? I never like having a team's full frontcourt or backcourt. Maybe you can wait til he gets back and trade him for a solid PG?

Meh, K-love is only above Hibbert in my front court pecking order and an upside guy. And w/ Green and Wallace I have a ton of options (too many potentially) at the 4.

Absolutely potential trade bait down the line as well.

For $2 I'll roll the dice. If he goes animal hello keeper. Plus I think w/ Big Al back K-Love is actually going to get to work on his perimeter game this year, something that he lacked the chance to do last year post Big Al.

And Big Al is Big Al, I love him, a lot.

I see you both have Al Jeff - what # pick did it take to get him? I snagged him at #9 in my 10 team draft (which was more or less a practice for my 12 team draft).

Al Jefferson
Dirk Nowitzki
David West
Jose Calderon
Russell Westbrook
Rudy Gay
Andrew Bynum
Manu Ginobili
JR Smith
Blake Griffin
Luol Deng
Tyreke Evans
Tracy McGrady

Pretty happy with it. Need Manu to have a huge bounceback year, but I have tons of depth at the 4/5 spots to trade from.

I payed $60 for Big Al in a $200 cap, overpaid by about $10 bones from what my personal cap was but got into a heated war w/ one of my peeps. Another reason I missed out on Zero (I am going to bitch about this for ages).

BTW: Raja Bell probably out for the season, Augustine now starting and we all know what happened last year.... woot... woot, just made me so happy it hurts.

Shaq, man you are going to be riding the prayer ride all year long Rich.

That said, hitting up LBJ as rookie at #7 was pure brilliance.

I just put a bid in for CDR to replace Love who is on my IR. Really hoping he busts out this year, guy has been filthy in the preseason and I have always loved his old skool style.

That said our FA system is a $60 cap weekly silent bid system, so who knows if I'll land him.

I'm very close to making a deal for another center. I got screwed, Troy Murphy lost his C eligibility this year.

Yeup.

Scola not having center eligibility made me want to destroy CBS. In all reality I had at least five or six huge issues w/ there positional breakdowns.

Fucking injuries are killing me. Josh Howard has now cost me 2 straight weeks in a daily roster league and I had to drop Blake Griffin because we only have 2 bench spots, I'm sure as hell not dropping Josh but it hurts not having a full squad and esp a guy like that; other league is weekly roster change but only 5 guys per week, so of course Devin Harris is not listed as out until after I set my lineup this week and now Kevin Martin is out 6 weeks.

And btw owning Dwight Howard in a league only makes me hate his inconsistent ass even more. 33 points, 11 boards, and 3 blocks in 2 games so far this week? He should get that every damn game. Eff him.

Yeah, I don't like the rules you are stuck adhering to aoxo.

That said, I do not even want to get into the CDR T-Will saga I have been through.

We have a $60 FA auction system, I'm 11 dollars in and beyond $1 for Flynn the rest has been switching between those two. I finally settled on CDR and he comes down w/ the swine flu. Christ almighty.

Vince being out this week and CDR being sick is going to cost me the week. Even if Crash is averaging 20 boards a game, Hibbert for $1 is the smartest draft pick ever, Flynn and Tyreke are getting it together, etc.

Crash shooting 25% from the field is also not helping me.

Feh.

Either way, my team is built for the future. Going to have sick keepers.

Roy MFing Hibbert is the man.

I'll say. Going up against him this week with Bosh/Howard/Bargnani/Perkins as my bigs; he is freaking awesome.

Brook Lopez is ridiculous as well.

Just doesn't seem fair that my quartet is getting played to a draw by Hibbert/Lopez/Nene.

Current Games played by me thanks to injuries and bad schedules:

64

Current games played by the first place peeps (only 1 game back though, as we play winner take all weekly)

76

And it doesn't get much better this week w/ Hibbert only going twice and our Free Agent Auction system preventing streaming of players.

Big week for Big Al, can he keep improving or what. That is the key to my season.

Like how my utes are coming for cheap awesome Auction keepers going forward but I still need to show something this year.

Yeah Lopez was high up on my list of targets in the auction. Unfortunately one of the other peeps had as big of a man crush as me and I couldn't pay 40 bones for him.

Of course I did pay 60 for freaking big al.

I drafted Hibbert with my final pick - dropped him after he averaged 7 and 7.5 his 1st 2 games for Mareese Speights . Its been only double doubles since. Fuck.

Lost Kevin Martin and Tyrus Thomas to major injuries, still no sign of Pau. Barbosa has missed time too, and now Eric Gordon is hurt. Fuck.

Big Al, Scola, and Augustin have sucked balls. Fuck.

About the only thing that was going right for me was Jeff Green, but he's totalled 15 points in the last 2 games.

Fuck this NBA season.

Scola has been avg around 15 and 10 since his crappy first game, which makes me plenty happy.

Big Al is my big issue. Real pleased w/ the OKC kids, Westbrook and Green.

Lot of hoops left though. Already missed huge w/ Kamen and Marc Gasol on the waiver wire.

PS: Hibbert has also been over four blocks each game his last few.

Picked up Speights a couple days ago to win points and rebounds for the week, figuring he would be one of the half dozen or so guys I'll cycle through my last couple roster spots every week (limit 6 roster moves per week so damn right I'm making 6 a week)... the way he is playing, I don't think I can drop him. 20/8/1 tonight with .615/.800.

Fucking Hickson. Remember watching that draft and thinking we would get either Speights or Hibbert... how nice would either of those guys have looked had they fallen another couple spots? Hell, Ryan Anderson would be spec-effin-tacular on this team.

Speights is going to be annoying to hold on to until the Sixers smarten up and start playing Brand at the 5, as until then he is going to give you huge nights against the Channing Frye's of the world because Brand cannot play more than 20 min against them on D and nothing against any true post player.

That said, I have officially reached Don Nelson can burn in Hades status.

Most frustrating coach in any sport ever. Guy makes Mangini look like a cute little puppy. That team has so much fantasy potential it is sick but it is impossible to hold anyone aside from Ellis, S-Jax, Curry, Beidrins (and my hate for Nelson is making me waiver) and the enigma that is Anthony Randolph.

I mean, fuck me, Anthony Randolph is playing center behind the corpse of Mikki Moore right now. What? Who? Why? How?

I only have one Nelson player on my team and refuse to take on any more.

Guh.

Go. Away. Don. Nelson.

Don Nelson is beyond drunk with power. If he was still in the frame of mind he had even a few years ago, GS would be an awesome team to watch and actually a threat. Now? Worthless. Total shame, too. Especially because they went all in on him this offseason when they fired the GM.

I made the move for one reason (because everything you say here is correct):

I have K-Love on my IR and am going to have to drop someone when he gets back anyway and that someone was absolutely going to Biedrins. I figure I am going to get better short term production out of Dampier.

That said I am kinda stuck w/ K-Love now or am going to have to ride out the waiver wire to fill my third center void. This may bite me in the ass, bad. It may work out marvelously as getting another keeper under $3 would be sick to add to Tyreke and Hibbert, but it may not.

One of those moves that come December, you are going to hate yourself for. If the answer is Eric Dampier, the question should not be asked.


I made the move for one reason (because everything you say here is correct):

I have K-Love on my IR and am going to have to drop someone when he gets back anyway and that someone was absolutely going to Biedrins. I figure I am going to get better short term production out of Dampier.

That said I am kinda stuck w/ K-Love now or am going to have to ride out the waiver wire to fill my third center void. This may bite me in the ass, bad. It may work out marvelously as getting another keeper under $3 would be sick to add to Tyreke and Hibbert, but it may not.


In that situation, good call.

Anyone have a good plan for getting something out of Elton Brand?

Yeah, put him in a time machine and ship him back to before he stabbed the Clippers in the back. Karma's a bitch Elton.

Jesus. Screwed for the 3rd week in a row on the 5 starter, weekly lineup change league. Had to move Rip Hamilton into the lineup as I have lost my top 2 guards, so of course he is out all week once lineups are set.

I think I'm starting to remember why I haven't played fantasy hoops in 4 years.

Rip has been out for awhile, ha.

That said, the lineup manipulation is why we went to the $60 cap FA auction format. Minimizes roster manipulation gears solely toward maximizing games.

I gotta pay more attention. That said, he did have the little cross by his name but when I clicked on info it said expected to start.

Any takes on Garnett? Thinking about making a move to get him. Dynasty league where he is way overpriced at this point, but not as overpriced as Elton Fucking Brand.

I just made a move for Speights instead of Dampier (would have lost the auction anyhow and had a feeling he was out of my price range). I now only have 2 centers and we start 2 centers. That said, it will only cost me 2 games over the next three weeks, in which time Speights may earn center eligibility and Dalembert may be sent out to pasture.

IOW: I handcuffed myself a bit w/ roster flexibility because of how not high I am on Brand and Dalembert right now. I mean I figured this week he would at least show some sign of life and start taking minutes back as recently as yesterday, but my lord it is just getting uglier.

That and I figure collecting talent to trade once K-Love gets back is more valuable than using the Dampier.

That said, I highly recommend you look at KG's game log and some of his FG% and point outputs. Gross. Boston fans make fun of him in our league chat room on a nightly basis re fantasy.

Rock and hard place and stuff.

But he is better than Brand. The guy that has him simply cannot afford him (has a couple of guys coming off IR) and is looking to move him cheap.

Try to trade Brand to a Pau owner who just found out he's missing his 1st rounder til Christmas. Strike while the iron is hot.

I ain't playing with kids.

Dude is averagin 6 and 4.

6

and

4.

If I thought someone would be buying, he would already be sold. Only hope at this point is a miracle. Either someone comes a calling, or Brand gets those up to 9 and 6, lol.

Ha.

Yeah, KG is better, not really going to argue. Just sayin' that KG is not exactly tearing the world apart this year.

That said, if Brand goes nuts after you trade him it'll be entirely your fault.

Got my first offer for Big Al on the cheap yesterday.

Flynn and Al for Jennings.

Flynn was ahead of Al in boards for 75% of the game last night.

The rust has to come off at some point, right?

Uhg.

Need some help. My team is decimated with injuries. Which of these guys do you think has the most trade value? I gotta pick up some healthy bodies (only have 1 IR spot). I'd like to package one of my injured guys with someone else for one or 2 healthy guys.

Al Jefferson, Pau Gasol, Kevin Martin, Baron Davis, Eric Gordon, Jeff Green, Kelenna Aubuike, Luis Scola, DJ Augustin, Leandro Barbosa, Shane Battier, Andray Blatche, Mareese Speights, Beno Udrih.

Also, is it time to give up on Augustin? Played only 9 minutes last night.
