    Lets start it off!


    Hmmm, I'm thinking about dropping Amare, should i get Exum? Mo? Meeks?

    had high hopes for an amare comeback, and its not looking good. i have way too many bigs.

    or should i keep him and see what happens?

    i need to win, friends that have the least basketball knowledge some how win all the time.

    I'm convinced half is luck and half is just picking up the players before others do.

    pretty much, it's a combination of luck and time put in...you can have a terrible draft and still win a league as long as you pick up the right people on the wire

    I hosted a basketball league back at CL the past couple of years. I'm definitely interested in joining another one here if we get enough people to join.

    To get some discussion going what are your opinions on drafting Kobe and Wade. Also, with Durant's recent injury where would you draft him?

    Well mine is an auction league. I'd put up about 10% on Kobe. Maybe 20% because I'm a Laker fan. That means 20-40 bucks in 200 dollar leagues. In re-draft leagues I guess I'd go 2nd or 3rd round depending on your draft position.

    Wade... I don't know. I wouldn't spend much on him.

    I'm quite happy with my team considering it was all auto-picked.

    i have jimmy butler and nick young now injured on the side lines, butler is a given, but should i keep young? since in my other league we added another roster spot

    so there is probably nothing left worth picking up on the roster. should i keep young? or drop him to get some extra stats?

    When Young comes back the Lakers are going to need him to score. He'll be putting up 15 shots a game at least and chipping in some steals and rebounds as well. I have him estimated to score around 22-25 fantasy points per game this season. If you can find a better option on the waiver wire I'd go for it.

    I would keep Young and unless you're playing in a league with less than 10 people in it you'd be hard pressed in finding someone better.

    hope butler comes back soon

    dunno who else is on your waiver wire, but wilson chandler is useless and can be dropped.
