dudes were giving me **** for trading for Tyson Chandler the Manhandler. 161 points last week and now everyone's holding they tounges.
Primetime's coming up in a big way.
I think the trade is more than fair no matter which way you look at it. You gotta remember this is me and rady here, we both know what we're doing.
Lillard 31 Deron 31
Tristan 24 Drummond 19
Barea 18 Webster 13
Lillard 2150 Deron 2400
Tristan 1750 Drummond 1300
Lillard 38 Deron 35
Tristan 30 Drummond 16
So on averages rady comes out ahead. On projected it comes out roughly even. Minuteswise rady is winning. Me getting ahead on this deal requires improved play from Deron and Drummond to start getting big minutes, which is what I'm banking on even though Lawrence "I'm really still coaching in the NBA?" Frank has said he wants to bring Andre along slowly.
This ain't no Dragic for Gay trade that's for sure! (1900pts vs 2400pts cough)
This is a week of potential fireworks! Some top notch games this week!
I see Robert declined a trade I offered him a week ago and his lineup is set for today (but not the rest of the week). Has the sleeping dragon returned or is this just coincidence?!
Coquis vs Gangnam - The undefeated undisputed rank 1 team against a surging Gangnam who has made some epic waiver pickups. Can Rubio arrive in time to save the day? With The Brow down for the week it may just come down to that.
Pick - Gangnam (gotta do it, I want that longest undefeated record!)
That's Amar'e vs p0nder - Two up and coming teams who have stumbled in previous weeks. Will the vociferous man handler push p0nder into the realm of the elite again? Will the 100% decline in Gayness on That's Amar'e cost him?
Pick - p0nder
#Knickstape vs New Vegas Patriots - Will Robert set his lineup? An easy one to predict when our league's Washington Wizards are competing...
Pick - New Vegas Patriots
WaterMELOn vs Pringles - The same question arises again...
Pick - WaterMELOn
New Jack City vs CoolClyde - Two downward trending teams right now.. After an explosive start the Bruisers have dropped two in a row. However the New Jack City boys are ravaged with injuries to Evans, Kawhi, Kidd and of course Eric Gordon. Should be a straightforward nod to the Bruisers here.
Pick - CoolClyde
Multiple Scorgasms vs R'dam Wharfies - The Scorgasms blend of star power, great waiver additions and huge up and comers like Faried have pushed him into the elite category in recent weeks. R'dam just lacks the depth to compete in this matchup I believe. However the recent addition of Billups and Mbah a Moute could right the ship. Nevertheless with Dirk down this is an easy decision.
Pick - Scorgasms
HOTMICE vs Killorbekilled - HOTMICE off to a terrible start although pointswise they sit in the middle of the pack. However Killorbekilled offers up a tasty morsel of a team waiting to be eaten alive. With his newly improved team rady takes this one.
Pick - HOTMICE
That's all folks.
^alright Smokes, props to you for backing up your trade with solid stats and reasoning, i agree Rady knows what he's doing (at 1-4...)
very cool analysis of week ahead, thanks for doing that! I agree with most predictions.
still upset at your greatness this year, and for giving Coquis a good extra live player (Klay) in your trade that put him over the top against me last week.
i'm still not against trading LeBron for the right deal, i just couldn't pull trigger on Deng + Gortat for LBJ, and I knew I was asking for too much (same deal, with Rondo for Felton thrown in). but if you can come up with another trade idea with Rondo coming to the Bruisers... you may end up with the most powerful team in all fantasy land. does Crazy 8's know you turned down Felton? hahahhhhh...
Coquis turned down Prigioni for Brewser, my bad for adding/dropping one for the other. could be a great week for the Prigger if Kidd stays out and Felton is hurt...
^ Yeah, obviously I think Deron is going to improve his FG% and get back to the 35-40pt per game region. I also think Drummond will be reaching Tristan Thompson territory a few months down the line.
Haha yes that trade was difficult to do, sorry if it contributed to your loss! I may have pulled the trigger a bit too quickly on the Tyreke/Klay trades, those dudes are starting to put it together. However Kyrie and Nash should be extremely solid going forward once their injury woes are over.
Re Lebron, things have kinda changed now after the recent trade with rady. I'll have to look at the progress of my waiver wire adds before I can make another 2 for 1 or 3 for 2.
This should be a fun week for fantasy, I'm liking a lot of the lineups.
Has anyone managed to have any contact with iSayUghhh in the last month? I've tried PMing him, sending him outrageous trade requests, etc. Nothing raises his attention!
I think we gotta look at replacing Cross Facers... And finding out from Robert/Pringles if they intend to play soon because we need to fill in the blanks soon before their losses get out of hand. There's 18 weeks left, plenty of time to get back into the game, but each week we wait their teams get worse and worse.
Coquis would like to welcome Zeller and Pietrus to the club.
We believe these two guys will prove a lot of doubters wrong and hurt the people who slept on picking them up. Two underrated rotational players.
Coquis felt Hamilton was too injury prone and it may hinder his production and Brewer will go away as a free gift to the Bruisers who are in need of a wing player.
Surprised no one has picked up Devin Harris yet.
Thomas Robinson too...
I want Andre Drummond back...that's my dude I drafted...gimme.
I've been tempted by Robinson a few times but the Kings are just a mess... Jason Thompson has been playing better than Cousins the last couple of games... He also signed a $40m contract in the offseason. Yet the Kings drafted Robinson? Huh?
I got my eyes on the long haul with Drummond. I would think latest after ASG they gonna unleash him for 30+ minutes.
