I think the 4 minutes of 0 points 0 rebounds 0 assists 0 steals 0 threes 0 blocks was a more amazing run.

Feel bad for anyone that was in dire enough straits to even roster him. We had people who know nothing about basketball talking like he was the next Dirk. Dude had a good outing in his first ever NBA game while Kanter was out. You don't add flashes in the pan, especially when they're going to lose all of their minutes the next game.

Yes there's was 2 guys one who dropped DLO and one who said better than Kanter so I'm not sure where "all these people" come from?  I feel bad for all the people that make deep league moves that are in 10-12 teamers.

You do add flashes in the pan if you know how to do it. I've added for free this season: Mitchell (after drafting and cutting him), Kyle Anderson, Spencer Dinwiddie, Jarrett Allen, Bismack Biyombo, and Bam Adebayo. None of them entered this year with any established NBA pedigree of sustained excellence, or plus performance. These players have generated 129 starts and averages of FG 44.7%, FT 81.6%, PTS 14.8, REB 4.6, AST 4.2, STL 1.0, BLK 0.7, TO 2.0. This is in a 9-cat roto league.

 

If I never add flashes in the pan, I don't add a season and a half (so far) of really useful numbers. You can turn this around and say Mitchell is great, but if we check the % of 12-team leagues these guys were drafted in, Mitchell might not even be 50% and I doubt any of these other guys is 25%. So yeah, with hindsight you can say these guys are legit, but hindsight doesn't help you until it's too late for this season.

 

This is why I win my league more than twice as often as the next guy, right now Birch, JR Smith, and Rondo are at the end of my bench, each one is a specialist in one or two categories where I need help. Will each be on the wire in two weeks? Probably, but I don't care, the next big thing is out there and you have to sign that player before knowing he's the next big thing in competitive leagues, otherwise someone else uses a dead bench spot for their own farm system.

All terrible examples. Mitchell was and should have been drafted in plenty of leagues (and I frankly don't even find the amazing season he's having surprising), I added and later dropped Adebayo due to injury and opportunity (essentially the exact opposite of Kornet's situation) and everyone else either had a track record or wasn't added after their first NBA game (a game they only even played in after missing the previous 50 because 2 guys ahead of him were injured with 1 coming back the next game). If you added Kornet because your bench sucked, there's nothing wrong with that. But, again, I feel bad that your bench sucked and he was a deep leaguer at best when everyone went ape to grab him. 

 

And yes, I think the majority of this thread was jokes but I saw the overall reaction to him across the internet. He was a super hot pickup and it's because he's 7'1" and can shoot 3s. Literally every other factor was ignored.

we are just creating  ore and more pages full of information that is uselss.. im sure as people click on here they are hoping to see something like 'Hornicek has decided to start the Kornet' hahaha

Not "the kornet" .

Two acceptable euphemisms for referring to Luke Kornet are:

"The White Hornet"

"The Unikornet"

As you were ,lads.......

80 teamers for the win !!!!!!!!!!

Seriously?  Dude he's a deep league stash.  Not sure why you don't understand that and feel the need to take shots on deep leaguers rostering him. Don't forget there's a sale at the jerk store tomorrow.
