    i didn't do my research and picked Westbrook in the first round, not knowing that he had a second surgery. thank goodness he came back early. still have Paul George remorse though. also, took Al Jefferson over Anthony Davis. sigh.

    i cringed reading your post - anthony davis is a beast. we havent seen a fantasy center this good since hakeem. im in 3 leagues and its a different bag of treats in each one.

    league 1: picked up westbrook for $17 when Lebron went for $99
    league 2: picked carmelo over davis with my 10th pick. davis was picked 11th :facepalm: al jefferson picked 23rd
    SF league: bought carmelo, anthony davis, and ibaka for $140ish. I should win fg, ft, and blocks every week

    It was the worst draft I can remember in some time. Just bad decisions and second guessing myself. Also passed on Hibbert, and got embroiled in trash talking my Celtic fan buddy during the draft, and instead of taking one of my planned rookie picks (Carter- Williams or Mclemore, both on the board so I had a 50% chance of catching lightning in a bottle)....I ended up taking Rondo just to fuck with him because I knew he wanted to stash him. Utter stupidity

    Anyway, speaking of Rondo it seems like it's not just the Knicks owner, players and media who are delusional - the management seems to think it will be able to trade Iman shumpert and Amare for Rondo...lol

    Hibbert was shit 2/3 of season last year, I had him. I passed on him too.

    I got lucky with Westbrook, picked him up cheap. I have Harden and Westbrook in the SF league, I've got a decent lineup but am suffering in assists.

    I'm a believer in Hibbert this year - his big issue was conditioning, confidence and foul trouble. Dude dominated in the playoffs and went out and got jacked during the offseason...looking at the pics on the court he makes behemoths like Tim Duncan and Dwight Howard look tiny

    He is a monster. A pretty immobile one, but he only needs to be quick over a yard as a center.

    You made a good pick, no doubt. But I was jaded putting up with all those .200 shooting %, 8 point 5 rebound nights where he played 22 mins because he had 3 fouls 3 mins into the 2nd quarter.

    It seems like JR Smith has no motivation now that he has his contract. I can't even watch this team.

    He gave up on life after Rihanna rejected him.

    Mentioned this last year when he was on fire - in the long term you don't want your team to rely in any significant way on jr smith.

    Also - Jordan Hill putting up better numbers in LA than Dwight Howard...lol

    A lot of people fell prey to the fallacious thinking that he would be more motivated being home. I want to drive to Freehold and tell his momma to yell at him.

    Naw. He'll trend up soon. He was kind of inconsistent last season too. A lot of guys in early season funk. Al Jefferson kyrie Irving Dwayne wade Larry sanders Derrick rose

    Dude. He's JR Smith. He's always had the talent to play like he did last year, but a couple of years ago he couldn't cut it in China. Put a head case like that on a dysfunctional organization like the Knicks, and....

    Derrick Rose really can't catch a break.
