    ^ Payout looks fair to me RFX but I think we should do something for the regular season winner since the season is so long it's gotta count for something to win it. I suggest:

    regular season winner: $20 bucks

    playoffs:
    1st: $110
    2nd: $50
    3rd: $20

    And that's sick about J-Rich candy. I'm out money in one of my leagues too because I couldn't get a measly 2 combined assists from Biedrins and Johnny Flynn today so I def feel your pain.

    the celtics starters aren't playing well (they are relying on great defense but coasting on offense), but the 2nd unit is doing great. they are playing scarily thin 8-9 player rosters right now and coasting.

    kristic is offensively a huge huge upgrade over perkins plus he's learning the defense and actually doing OK there (he still has to be reminded not go go for offensive rebounds and just get back on D). green actually spreads the court and can guard the teams primary scorer in crunch time (with KG manning with help/backup). i think green had his best game so far in last nights loss where he just started going for shot and stop having the yips

    come playoff time the offenses will go back to half court though so the lakers and celtics should be fine there defense wise.

    LOL, so I guess 56 points allowed last night proves your points rather nicely [​IMG]

    Man, so I'm out of the playoffs?! Damn my last two opponents for knocking me out of 6th place [​IMG] In my other league (also for $$) I need to win this week to get the regular season title. Got a pretty good team with Calderon, Curry, Dorrell Wright, Pau, David West and Brook Lopez as my starters. My opponent this week has Kobe so hopefully mamba takes a couple days off to rest that twisted ankle [​IMG]

    i haven't looked at my team in ages. if i remember, i go and put in my players who play, but that's been sketchy too. don't know how i made the playoffs with my lax managing and 3 player moves all year.

    Lakers got to push the gas pedal tonite at home against orlando who are coming off a first of a back-to-back. tight last 15 games. every one of these count i want us to get 2nd seed

    and any one of these minnesota or golden state games can be a trap game too they got to keep vigilant.

    I'm in such a bad position for next week, especially if Gordon or Gay doesn't come back. I will be going against players that has beaten me, one of them twice, in the regular season.

    I know, I thought you were donating the $20. What happened there? [​IMG]

    Nothing against Mikey but I'm really surprised he got to second place and almost beat me to first, I only won because i have more ties than him. If anyone was going to overtake me, I thought it would be BadNewsKennelz or Soowoop. Injuries just really killed me this past few weeks and I'm really screwed if none of them comes back strong next week.

    My bad Marley, I thought I had put everyone down who paid. I'll take your word for it and ad you to the list of payees.

    RFX- I'm a little surprised about my team too, I didn't think I would finish so high. I guess my later round picks and waiver wire guys really payed off for me this season.

    Yah you got freaking Lowry! Dude was a steal, stupid report said Brooks was returning so I didn't pick him up then they eventually end up trading him. Then you picked up Jennings and was like [​IMG] Edit: damn you Soowoop, Henderson was my dude, was saving him in case anyone of my players bombs or doesn't return. I was actually surprised he was flying under the radar for a while there. [​IMG]

    Dude I was pissed because I was the one who had Lowry first and dropped him when Brooks came back [​IMG] But I think mikey played dead teams the last few weeks so won like 8-2 if i'm not mistaken.

    Funny you mentioned that, I though BDeuce ($20 Donator) wasn't active the last week since he didn't play 2 players on Monday and I thought it would be smooth sailing and then all of a sudden I saw on Tuesday that all his players were set for the whole week and I knew I was fucked.
