i am currently interning for espn....... and i have great knowledge of the nba, so feel free to ask me anything u like........ and i will answer to the best of my abilities
This guy wants to trade away Jamison and J-Rich for two other players. They would be great adds to my team, but he's rejected two of my offers so far (S-Jax and Brewer; Brewer, Salmons, Gooden). He thought the 3 for 2 trade was fair (????) but didn't want to dropp any of his other players...here's my team. Which two should I give up for Jamison and Richardson??
BD, Ray Allen, Melo, Dwight, Gooden, SJax, Richard Jefferson, Josh Smith, Watson,Salmons, Brewer, Aldridge...He wants FG%, FT%, Blks and Stls...
I've made a lot of moves to get as many top players as I can; in fact I have 8 in the top 20. My goal was to do a lot of 3-for-2's or 4-for-3's to have a smaller number of higher ranked players to make room for Brand and Bibby as sleepers. The only problem is, outside the top 8 and Brand and Bibby, the other 3 players are just waiver fodder (that is unless Kirk Hinrich turns it around). Who do you think would make the best complements for my big 8?
PG: Chris Paul
SG: Kobe Bryant
G: Steve Nash
SF: Lebron James
PF: Shawn Marion
F: Caron Butler
C: Amare Stoudemire
C: Yao Ming
Util: Anderson Varejao
Util: Kirk Hinrich
BN: Elton Brand
BN: Mike Bibby
The reason the empty is there is because I just traded Rudy Gay and Emeka Okafor for Steve Nash (see the pattern?). I am thinking of picking up James Jones, Carlos Delfino, Wally Sczerbiak, or David Lee. Please shoot out a couple of free agents that would help complement what the big 8 bring to the table. Thanks.

your team looks GREATTT.......... and i dont think it matters if you have hinrich or verajo on a team like dat, you have first place ON LOCK in your league.
the only thing i can think of is maybe get david lee for anderson verajo, but it realli should make a big difference
By the way, I'm 2nd in a 10 team head-to-head league. I'm behind by 1.5 games in a 13-cat league (default 9 with 3PTM, A/T, PF, and O-REB). I was easily in first before three weeks ago, but then injuries to Lebron and Duncan (who I had at the time) left me to a roster of 9 players and I got smoked. I've made a sizable comeback since then, but it's still a little too close for comfort. I've dominated my last weeks though with a combined score of 19-7.
What do I need to do to win my next matchups? I am new to the fanasty world and I joined a league with some co-workers and I lost my first week 5-4. The guy I was matached up against killed me in assist so I went out and picked up the PG for the Hawks that was playing well the last 3 games and the guard for the Mavs Harris. I dumped Zack R. (Knicks) and Andris B (Warriors). Do you think I should be good down the stretch. THANKS!! Have a Merry Christmas

NO MAN, dont drop biedrens and randoph for harris and anthony johnson............if you really need a point guard you should trade either biedrens or randolph for one, im sure you will find a pg better then harris or johnson if u trade
and thanx you have a merry christmas too
I have Chris Paul, Steve Nash, and Mike Bibby as my point guards. I was a little worried about trading Tinsley for Aldridge, but I went ahead and made the move. I feel pretty good about it. What do you think?

well tinsley i think peaked a couple weeks ago..... i dont think his numbers could have gotten any higher then what they were 2 weeks ago. so nice of you to sell him at his highest point and get aldridge in return
i like that move.... especially because you have cp3 and nash as your pgs, so u never really have to worry about your assist production
In a 16 team league I had 15th pick, and this is how my team ended up:
Monta Ellis PG/SG
Raymond Felton PG/SG
Gerald Wallace SF/PF
Pau Gasol PF/C
Marcus Camby C
Tyson Chandler C
Anderson Varejao PF/C
Rafer Alston PG
Devin Harris PG
DeShawn Stevenson SG
Morris Peterson SG/SF
Jamario Moon SF
I start 1 PG 1 SG 1 SF 1 PF 2 C 1 Util daily.
I typically win 5 lose 7 categories.
FGM FG% FTM FT% 3PTM PTS and TO are the ones I lose.
3PT% REB AST ST & BLK I dominate.
I just traded Biedrins for Gerald Wallace, and was wondering which other players you would recommend I target to help in those categories.
Also your feelings on Gasol? I've never owned him but was expecting much more, and am getting anxious to deal him for a PG.

well what u need it a big scorer on your team......... try trading tyson chandler for a scorer. all chandler is doing is giving u rebounds and blocks( 2 categories your alreadi good in) but he is not giving you enuff point production and his free throw percentage is horrible........
reshard lewis is somebody i think will help your team greatly(he's a true buy low guy rite now)......... try getting him for chandler straight up
and also for the gasol thing.......... HOLD ON TO HIM, its not often where u get a big man that gives u that kind of percentages while putting up the regular big man numbers........... plus he had a nice game in his last game so look for him to be back in bizness
