    BEST AND WORST MOVES OF THE YEAR.

    I won the title. My best move by far was trading my cousin richard jefferson and tony parker for cp3. My best pickup was eric gordon. That kid brought it all year. Spencer hawes, jason thompson, rasual butler and sessions also made nice contributions. My worst drop was giving up on brook lopez way to early and dropping gerald wallace after bynum broke his rib. also, in the playoffs everyone thought crawford and troy murphy were hurt so i picked'em up as free agents and they helped get me the title.

    • my best move was i traded tony parker, amare and al jeff. for cp3 and iggy and my worst move was i traded pau gasol and antawn jamison for shawn marion ang kevin garnett......................................................

    • Cant decide:
      Best: Got Chauncey Billups for Paul Pierce
      Got Stuckey & Prince for Diaw(@suns) & Odom (b4 bynum gt injured)

      Worst: Got Jermaine O'Neal for Rasheed Wallace (seems ok i tot)

      Dunno which one was the best.

      Btw i stuck to JR Smith when so many ppl were dropping them.

      Worst drop: Ramon Sessions for Jordan Farmar. omfg luckily some ass dropped him and i added him back, benefitted from his triple double and tons of assts.

      Best Add:luis scola, rudy fernandez and of course ramon sessions.

    • Best: thank god for this Billups for my Camby

      Worst: my Terry, Diaw for RIP, Millsap

    • Won my League Gold

      Best:
      Adding Kalena Azabukie, Ronni Turiaf (early), Monta Ellis right before he blew up & dropped right after, CJ Watson and Birdman for the last few weeks (playoffs), Marc Gasol did pretty good for me too (picked up around all star break)

      Drafting Kobe, Ben Gordon, Jason Terry, Pau & Camby (until he realized that he was a clipper, and quit on his team), Marvin Williams (when healthy was savage!)

      Worst:
      Holding onto Chris Kaman for most of the season then dropping him right before he came back (and stunk up the joint I might add), Holding onto Gilbert Arenas almost the whole season, Dropping Turiaf in favor of Camby the last week (I dropped Camby when he pussed out on his team), Dropping Diaw for DeMarcus Nelson, Dropping G. Hill and R Foye very early in the season for Chalmers and Anthony Morrow (after that 22 point explosion followed by spotty play until the end of the year)

    • Best Move: Snagged Troy Murphy off the waiver wire.

      Worst Move: Traded Dwight Howard, Al Harrington and Randy Foye for Kevin Garnett, Tony Parker and Tayshaun Prince.

    • Best Move:

      1. Trade out Ginobili for Kidd
      2: Add Eric Gordon, Brook Lopez and Charlie V (Bucks)

      Worst Move:

      1: Reject offer of Okur for my Carlos Boozer (extremely stupid reject)

    • Traded Rasheed and Kirelinko for Granger.

      • Worst moves - starting Al Thornton in a Championship week, still ended up winning my 600 dollar money league. Lost my other money league by going with Thornton though. Not picking up Ramon Sessions. Failing to check the waivers on time and not picking up Lamarcus Aldridge.

        Best moves - Drafting Bosh, Durant, Tony Parker in the 2nd round. Drafting Iguadala in the 5th round.

    • I traded Rasho, Marquis Daniels, Amare, and Elton Brand for Dwade and Troy Murphy in december

    • Best move... drafting Devin Harris. Got Nash, James, Camby, Turkoglu in a same deal. Acquired KG for cheap. Acquired Jason Terry and Caron Butler for Nicolus Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and Ray Allen.

      Worst move... Trading James for Bosh and Mayo.

      I won the league so I have no problem with trading James though.

    • My best move believe it or not was trading Lebron James for Brandon Roy and Richard Jefferson.
      I made that trade in week 4, after losing 2 out of the first 3 weeks of the season, and was currently getting schooled in week 4 while the trade was pending.
      I really needed another PG to back Deron Williams, and wanted a player who shot great from the line and also shoots a ton of 3's. I was ridiculed by the league for making the trade, "You're an ass for trading Lebron" What a retard trade" You're giving up way to much"

      I have you know I I didn't lose a week match=up since, and low and behold I faced off with the team I traded Lebron to. Final Score was 7-2 and I'm enjoying GOLD BABY.

      • i had a similar situation. my best move ended up being my worst move in the long run. let me start by sayin that i was in 1st place before i started making significant changes to my roster. the 1st trade i made was bibby and turk for amare. that was my best move until...

        during that trade i added fisher to help out with the loss of assists from giving away bibby.

        the same team that i made that trade with dropped boozer when no one knew when his return would be. i picked him up from waivers. i still had amare at this time. someone else dropped terry when he broke his hand. i picked him up from waivers. those 2 helped me out big time!

        other moves of note was drafting monta and sitting on him 3/4 of the season. which was another to prove costly in the long run. he did get me into the finals though so i guess that was worth it.

        when amare went out i picked up turiaf which was big for my blocks. i also had josh smith and in the playoffs i picked up birdman. so my bigs consisted of turiaf, bosh (drafted), birdman boozer and josh smith. unstoppable! will definitely do what i can to get those 5 back together next season. if i was in a keeper league i would keep that big man core right there because big men like that are hard to come across on one team. and remember i was SUPPOSED to have amare INSTEAD of turiaf...WOW!

        after the trade for amare and the pickup of boozer and terry i had 3 injured players and fell to 5th place. when we got healthy we went on a 4 week winning streak beating the #1 & #2 teams in the final weeks. i then faced off with the team i traded for amare AND dropped boozer for the gold and won it all!!! he was SICK! sucks to be him but i was alright!!!!
