Drafted Harden and Westbrook 1/2 in h2h weekly, and this shortened week where the rockets only play 2 games is reminding me why it's not a good idea to draft two guys on the same team that high...and that's aside from the question of how this experiment is going to work out and whether westbrook is now permanently sub 70 pct freethrow poison that's gonna completely waste hardens value as an anchor (for whatever reason I convinced myself that a change of scenery will fix whatever happened to him over last 2 seasons within the span of 2 minutes once I was on the clock in round 2)

On the plus side, immediately after I picked Westbrook I was kicking myself during the draft and after for not picking Kemba instead, and at least he dissapointed in his debut. 

The thought of drafting these guys together never occurred to me predraft and it feels like such an all or nothing move that might have already ****** my season. Least it'll be interesting

You could always trade Russ and remember its a LONG season and Harden and Russ will give you enough stats to cover multiple games dont panic

I drunkenly traded away Lowry and Ja for D'Angelo and Rozier three days ago.  I don't HATE the trade, as I'm punting FG% , figured D'Angelo would kill it with Steph out, and Rozier has long since looked like a fg% punt stud, last week aside.  But I felt afterward, when I woke up, that I just plain am higher on Ja than Rozier.

This was the first day that day processed.  I'd still rather have left the Ja/Rozier part out of it, but I, through sheer luck, won that trade by a landslide.

Struggling a little bit right now because I'm missing ayton, Middleton and hayward. The way I'm looking at it is that they're all coming back in December so it'll be like having a little Christmas present. Lol

On the plus side, my waiver pick ups have been on point: Jabari, Tristan Thompson and Nunn. I also got pg13 back so that's nice to have.

I'm in an 8 team 8 category league. Turnovers aren't counted. The categories are FG%, FT%, 3 pointers made, points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks.I have Kyrie Irving on my team and don't know what to do with him. I'm in 5th place out of 8. No one will accept any of my trade offers. What should I do? The categories i'm weakest in are: Assists, points, fg% and ft%.

Having a good vibe about this season and my chances of winning back-to-back ´ship in the toughest league in all Europe.

It all started when we had our "Kobe Memorial Theme Weekend". We had chance of apply for extra positions (FanTrax), we had Special Kobe Uno Tournament, we had Kobe Quiz, we had "Kobe Music" Contest and our trade deadline all in the same week.

Our trade deadline day had whopping amount of trades and almost 40 different players switched teams, even on the last minutes of the DL. When all was said and done few of the top teams had gotten a lot better. I was kind of a feeling down for my chances even when I had compiled the best fantasy point average through the season... 

But then things started to happen. My Lillard got injured, but he most likely will be able to contribute when our playoffs start early March.

Then Top2 record owning teams had Kyrie Irving, Capela, JJJ and KAT going down for them... Very good for me. Then Top4 team who got Harden at the Trade DL lost Simmons... Then 2nd best fantasy point averaging team got burned by his Drummond, Juancho for LMA, Jrue trade as DRE is DONE.

I´m not out of the woods yet and it is super tight this season as everyone but one manager is very up to date with NBA + fantasy tactics... But I was ahead before All Stars Break and now it is even better. Few new teams have been operating really nicely last few weeks, but they have a lot of overachieving waiver players boosting em up.

Let us hope that this will be my season yet again! One time baby! One time!!

Made the playoffs in one of the two H2H leagues I'm in. Was pretty odd to sneak in because teams 8-12 finished with the same amount of wins and losses. Just happy to even be there though, but it would've been easier if I hadn't gotten a despicably fluky loss to the red lantern who finished with a 2-17 tally. Having lost Oubre, Isaac and KAT I'm liable to get smacked by the #1 seed though, so wouldn't be surprised to frequent the Rant thread instead of this one shortly
