Wow you robbed somebody....what kind of idiot would make that trade? Im sick of playing in leagues with a bunch of gurus. I need a league like that. Although even if that trade got accepted it would prob get vetoed with the quickness...your league doesn't have vetos?
it does, but why are ppl vetoing anyway??? There should be an unwritten rule to leave it to the parties involved...because personally, If I couldn't get a trade, I'd never let anybody in the league complete one either.

And I'm selling low on Gortat for what otherwise is a comparable big. It's only bad because of the situation I mentioned, at the start of the season when he was blocking in his sleep I would have lost by trading.

Got a decent steal in that trade, Kyrie coming back and hopefully Pau and Nash help get things going with some of my other squads
I see, I thought Kyrie would be out longer but guess not

Bro trust me I'm fully aware of Gortat's situation. I sleep, talk, walk, eat nba basketball 24/7. Especially fantasy. Gortat is fu*ked. His value is shooting down and is only going to get worse. Suns have no interest in being a contender and would rather have a high lottery pick. I'd be shocked if Gortat isn't reduced to a bench role or even traded within the next week or so. I guess being traded would be the best case scenario for Gortat owners but that's a lot to bank on.

Chandler meanwhile is the #26 fantasy player in 8-cat leagues. Compare that to Gortat's ranking and the fact that he's most likely gonna be stuck in limbo all season and that trade was extremely lopsided. Not hating just stating the obvious. It would have been vetoed in any league I play in. I'm just saying. If anything, more power to you.

Vetos exist because when you're playing in large money leagues like I do it's easy to collude with another team in the league and create a bogus trade. Vetoing prevents that collusion from happening. Similar to Stern denying the Lakers trade for "basketball reasons". When thousands of dollars are on the line you want to ensure a fair league is being run.

I've been in 100s of leagues and they all contain vetos of some sort. I've been in leagues before with the full power of vetos left up to the commish. Talk about trades being denied for "basketball reasons" lol.
I feel you, this is my first year really, Im just going off what I know and just paying attention to everything....I'm getting the hang of it and may do a money league next year. on BX.. with the situations youve laid out I do see the need for a veto.

holy sh*t I just found out about the Max games for position played thing. That changes EVERYTHING b. WTF I've been starting as many guys as possible and now I have to sit like half until I can manage this thing yo


for now imma leave off players that feature the stats that I'm leading in, but my position max chart is gonna make me play some players anyway because their position has the least games past the max line.

I still need enough guys playing to produce and keep my leads while boosting my other stat categories tho.

damn this is stressful, but the lucky thing is that I'm still right around first so I have room to tinker and Ive got guys that are known to produce if I put them in the roster

word, after testing for a day, I think I got it down on who I'm limiting to bring the over played number down..

I'm gonna leave my SG slot open for a couple games, and put one SG in the flex G position.... and I'm only playing one utility player out of three possible for like a week...I'm WAY over in that slot

My PF and C spots I can alternate daily so I'll always have at least 4 guys playing... I'm no worried about my lead now that I know I have to save the spots for the long haul...some ppl will slip up and towards the end of the season their points will stop counting and I'll gain it all back there

giving up D howard for Evan turner and Thaddeus Young... ESPN league... that does sound bad but the way the points system is set up I'm getting almost 250-300 points more. Dwight never gets the amount of point that he should in that league

Dwight can fluctuate with his foul trouble and not being the main focus on offense too. While ET and Thaddius are the majority of Detroit's squad so good call...

Rubio is back... not ony any of my squads tho... maybe I'll scoop him in one waiver wire to track his progress... Kawhi Leonard is almost back and will be a definite pickup. I'm glade I don't have him and parsons on the same team in any league...that would be an very hard decision

Yeah I knew you had me in scoring but all other categories it is pretty close. I always lose the TO battle though

I grabbed Tony Parker because he was ranked like 50 something in some leagues... little did I know he would be the steal of the draft for me. Top 3 PG man... and nobody rocks with it until they actually watch SA play.

His offensive game is Amazing...and to think he could not shoot when he got in the league and had to rely on fast breaks and layups
