Having both Durant and Lebron on the same team, I'm going to take a BOLD prediction and say that you will be winning many weeks this year.

Yeah, I forgot I have my team on the sig. Actually, I am 9 games behind. 9 games = 0.0001 FT. Not bad. :D Hmm, durant was a FT beast this week, jacking up over 40 FTA.

LOL, I was dreaming of a perfect season. I think, only Durant - Lebron combo can pull that off. So lucky I got 2nd overall pick plus the LBJ owner wants to shuffle his roster and made the trade. :D

i once won a finals matchup by .002%. the clipper game was the final game of the finals fantasy week and my opponent had blake griffn. when i put the game on, i was up by .002 ft% with a quarter to go, but 2 free throws from blake griffin would've given my opponent the victory. with 1 possession to go and the game being already over, i felt safe.. next thing u know, with a second left, blake griffin takes it to the rack and gets hammered....lucky for me, no foul gets called. game over.

So many guys ask how I did it.. And thanks for asking nicely (without cursing my league) So here it is:

It is only an 8 cat league so the player pool is very deep. Traded Marc + Lawson + Joe Johnson + Hayward to LBJ + Manu and Roy. His team by then is struggling (see Manu and Roy) so he took the deal. My first proposal of getting LBJ was vetoed by the league but after a few weeks, I managed to manipulate to the said deal above and then my league approved it.

After that, traded a hot Gortat and Monta Ellis to struggling Marc Gasol (due to ZBO) and a struggling Paul George. Btw, the 2nd owner of Marc traded it to another owner so i grabbed the chance of taking him back. Hence, my team. Also, if you can just look at the playoff schedule, I planned it to maximize the games as fantasy playoffs comes by.

Damn man I'm jealous, my league averages like 1 trade per seasons and we're all extremely active but also so competitive that no one trusts each other enough. The only trade last year was Durant + Dalembert for Lowry + Bogut (when Lowry was #1 overall beginning of the year, Bogut was healthy and killing it, and Dalembert wasn't on a team yet).

As for close calls, I have 2 to speak of. First off, last season I was down 4-5 in the finals with Gallo as the only guy going between both of us (on my team). I was down 1 3PM and owned the tie-breaker. There was 2 minutes left in the game and I think DEN was up by 12 or something so I figured I lost but watched the game log anyway. Gallo proceeded to MISS 3 3's over the next 2 min and I lost (ironically it was the FIRST time I lost 3PM all season my team was built to dominate that category). Second, not as interesting, but this week I won by 1 asssist, 1 block, 2 3PM, 4 steals & .004% FT which is crazy cause it's a 14 player roster where we start up to 11/day so scores are high.

Yeah, for a 14 team, it is very close. Feels so good if you are on the winning side. Haha. Earlier, my opponent had faried (had my FT count 0.7761 vs 0.7771 before the game) and im so pissed watching NOH because they just let Manimal get putbacks without contesting.

On the other hand, I play with friends so regular chatting and basketball talks are really frequent. It is really fun to trade. Best part in fantasy is feeling like you are a real GM and just go around having trade talks. In addition, it is also a money league but we are just on our 2nd year. BTW, we are about 20-21 years old and very fond of basketball. :D

He are the scores at the end of Week 4 in my H2H 9 cat league. My team is the one on top.. So lucky!

If I had lost, I wonder whether it would be worth my while to go through and average out all the ft% stats myself.. hmm.. maybe not

I was "tied" in FG% this week and lost it by 0.0003%...otherwise I would have won 7-2 instead 6-3..bummer.

Last season I tied in the finals 4-4-1..and won the tiebreaker.

Did a certain string of players deliver big time when the matchup was down to the wire? In general? Let's brag about it!

Tonight, Lebron, Manimal, Bosh, Klay Thompson, Joakim Noah beasted.

Manimal was in a pretty big slump and exploded for 26 points/14 Rebounds

Klay has been on fire, going for 27 points on 5 threes, as well as filling the rest of the stat sheet.

Noah does everything and has been a huge surprise for myself and fantasy owners this year.

Great games tonight from Klay, Noah, Millsap, Kirilenko, Pierce, Lee and ERSANITY. Millsap still dominating, 20-11 so far...

Had AK as well, wish he had a similar amount of touches every game.

ERSANITY is back! Depending on Skiles.

Yeah, Kirilenko has been mad underrated this year. He's got as good a chance as anyone to fill out the stat sheet, really stole him in the draft like I'm guessing most of his owners also did.

I won't be fully convinced Ersan is back because Skiles' mixing and matching with his big men has really worked for them so far, and they're not doing badly at all right now. But I'm cautiously optimistic he's getting out of Skiles' doghouse a little bit with his recent play.
