WZ BASKETBALL 2011 (LA9erFan is the CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I feel for Pete not having Kobe, I felt that if Rose/Allen weren't injured during the first week of the playoffs I would had won that matchup, I lost a very tight 6-3

True but I missed Wade for a game, had Duncan sit out a game, and lost Aldridge for the entire week. It evened out.

but anyways, Pete has a shot at this still

Not quite. I'd get there first. I added Kevin Seraphin after both champ teams had exhausted their four moves. And if missing out on JJ Hickson for a game cost me the title, I'd consider myself not strong enough anyway.

Pete beat me on the last day of the championship last year. I have no doubts he'll do it again. He's clutch like that.

Yes but you added Kyle Korvar who I really wanted and needed. Instead I had to take Bonner. That probably cost me the 3 pt category. I agree with Rabbit. Unless you are at least going for 3rd you shouldnt be claiming players to win consolation games.
that FG% cat is so close

and it'll all come down to how Al Harrington, john's last round pick (well, my pick ) shoots in the 2nd half

Ironically, Kobe's absence might have helped me. I'm already going to win every category that he's decent in (except steals, which I would have lost anyway), and there's a pretty good chance that he woulda lost me the FG% cat. Eric Gordon's inconsistent status hurt too though, because I had to play Lester Hudson, whose FG% usually sucks.

Anyway...should be an interesting 2nd half. Harrington should be checking in soon for an 0-8, 5 turnover 4th quarter.
BTW, I own the tiebreaker if it comes down to that. Jack 'em up, Al!
It's all tied up. Bench him, George! He's hurtin' you out there!
and Pete takes the lead!
I have unbelievably good luck in this league. Sorry, John. You deserved to win this, but I'll take it.

Good job Pete. I thought about sitting all the guys at the end and probably locking the win but thought that was a crappy way to win.

I thought maybe sitting Harrington may have been good but it was so close it was too risky, you would had hated yourself if he had gone 8-10 and you had lost

congrats Pete

I was positive that I would win if I sat Joe Johnson and Harrington. Pete was too far behind in FG % to make it up unless my guys threw up bad numbers. I had a big lead in the other areas and it wouldnt have hurt at all. If it was a money league I would have done it without question. For this, playing everyone was the right thing to do.

I would have sat those guys. I don't think it's bad etiquette to do that...it's strategy.

Now, picking up players when you're not in the Finals, on the other hand...

Pete. Like I said if there was any money involved I would have. Its just for fun and glad it was a good match. All that matters. If I had to lose I'm happy it was to you.

Right on, that was a great matchup. Hope you had fun in your first year of fantasy b-ball. This year was a little strange due to the condensed schedule. Most years there are fewer nights where you can fill up every available slot on your roster.
