    I used Fantasy Monster last year and it synced to my Yahoo Fantasy account w/o a problem. I could set-up my line-up there too, it isn't perfect but it worked. I think it goes by a different name this year though.

    Just checked, Yahoo has a fantasy BBall app now too. Not sure how it works but it looks like it'll be similar to using a PC.

    They (OKC) may just shot themselves in the foot. Kinda reminds me of when Boston traded Perk for Green.

    :slayer: for LA

    Damn, Rockets ain't fucking around. Can't wait to see how it goes for them this year since the Knicks will be playing in the old timers league.

    Meh, not as bad as it could be for the Thunder. Obviously they would haved loved to keep Harden but pretty much everything I read over the last year or so suggested that that would be very hard in reality. So why wait? Get value and move on. It worked for the Nuggets and Jazz, failed for the Magic who durdled around instead.

    F***.

    Just when I was rooting for the beard and OKC all of last season, this happens.

    2013's gonna be boring.

    #Lebron wins his 2nd ring.

    WTF

    how is getting those guys better than just giving Harden his max contract and being done with it?!?!

    Harden's the guy who by statistical measures was probably the third best SG last year after Kobe and Wade (you might even say better than Wade because he played more games and i wouldn't argue with you too much)

    with Kevin Martin you get scoring, ball-stopping, injuries, and bad defense. are they hoping Jeremy Lamb becomes the next Harden? they already had the real one, so they're taking a mighty big gamble just to save some money

    It is a big gamble, but remember, Harden was shit in the finals. I think that had more impact on this decision than a max deal. I believe the GM lost faith. They get 2 SG in return as well as some draft picks.

    Its not as bad a deal as many think. Problem for me here is OKC has weakened defensively.

    don't really disagree with you, but it's hard to believe they would give up on a 23 yo star for one bad series, especially after he killed it all season to help them get that far. i'd think they'd let him learn from the experience, get better and mature, and have at least one more go.

    i actually think the real reason is money. Stern and the owners have tried so hard (with luxury tax and whatnot) to prevent the rise of superstar teams, when actually that's what makes their league so successful and interesting. OKC was projected to be my team's biggest threat, and even i'm disappointed to see them broken up.

    If that was the objective, the league has backfired.

    like how the new cba was designed to "help" small market teams, yet just fucked over the best one.

    The draft picks will have to work out extremely well to make this a worthwhile trade for OKC and I'm not optimistic. Even first round draft picks are a crap shoot in the NBA. Although OKC handled this better than Orlando handled Dwight's situation, by not dallying, I think this is a poor trade for OKC. IMO, almost anytime a team trades a star, or potential star, for a handful of players, they've made a bad trade because winning in the NBA is driven by stars/superstars.
