Somebody posted in the Overreaction thread that there should be one posted, and figured that was a good idea so figured might as well start one(Made sure none for this season existed before hand of course..)

Well I will start things off with a couple of cool stories of my own.

League 1: Did a trade for Davis and Irving in my keeper league that just killed my depth. (Rubio/Rondo/Drummond/Kanter B)) Luckily I have been able to snag Plumsanity, Blake, and Stephenson off of the wire to fill the holes.

League 2:  Some espn prize league I joined last minute, I wound up drafting: Harden/Davis/Jefferson/Conley/Leonard/Westbrook(idk how, thanks ESPN for silly rankings lol).. Then I flipped Westy and Kanter for George and then picked up Wilson Chandler to fill the void.

So what are YOUR cool stories, bros?

Some idiot in a money league kept dropping good players after like 1 or 2 bad game performances. I wanted to pick them up, but I had the least priority... grrrrrrrr

Rejected their Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner for my Isaiah Thomas and Jimmy Butler because I hate Jrue that much now after seeing him not include Davis and leaving him stranded waving his arms wide open over and over only to brick a contested layup.

I don't need points and trade would've given me a ton of turnovers, lost steals, threes, both %s and would have doubled me up on Philly/NO players.

Numbers over names.

I dropped Paul PIerce for WIlson Chandler. It was a choice between Peirce and Derozan.

Cool story? or no?

One GM crazy for Lillard and Griffin offered me CP3, Ilyasova and Matthews for those 2 + Mayo. I now own both CP3 and Harden.

both of my teams are pretty ridiculous, especially the bottom one. and the bottom team is for a considerably higher amount of money. this week i'm just obliterating the other guy.

i had larry sanders in the top league but cut bait for streaming spots. i'm probably gonna scoop him back up the week after next because my opponents get soft as hell until his projected return.

Drafted Durant with the #1 pick and managed to get Davis with #20.  Pretty sure I was begging the computer the entire 2nd round not let AD get drafted.   Story is cool, I wasn't so cool though.

I was just offered Randy Foye and Kirk Hinrich for Chandler Parsons....Then after I turned it down, I had the other owner try to sell it to me like I would be winning the deal

Man, I hate to see those posts with the ridiculus trade offers, AD at #20 in the draft and guys like Barnes, Plumlee or McRoberts still on the waiver (12 Teams + x). In my league you even have no chance to make a "fair" trade and those FA mentioned before didn't stay on the ww till the morning after the games (here they start at earliest 1 am-3am).

It's a different team, not the one in my sig. CP3 in my sig's my 1st pick. I forgot to mention that.
