    • I like streaming. It makes for a much more competitive league. A team with a bad draft position or players who don't play to their potential can use streaming to keep up with teams who were fortunate enough to get the Lebrons, Pauls and Kobe's in the league. It's no fun if two or three teams dominate from start to finish. Streaming correctly requires alot of strategy and many of the best players do it. Anyone who dislikes streaming should just join a league with move limits to avoid contraversy.

    • When it was a quadrillion moves,people had streaming issues. Now that u are allowed 4 max moves-guys still have issues.

      I "wuv" yahoo. I really do. Only on this "fine and family oriented" site, can a major concession be construed as yahoo not doing its job.

      Again if folks really wanted to make streaming-they should have made the system essentially a form of carrot n stick.

      Ie:if folks wanna stream until hell freezes over-let em. However there should have been a monthly limit over how many moves,a team could make without a penalty. Yahoo choose to do 4 weekly moves. The only penalty was that no one could go 5.

      Again-brillant.

      I stream n got over. Using yahoo's system-i got who I needed to get me over.

      However if yahoo wishes to bend over again for the "anti's"-by all means,go for it.

      After all

      I got over in regards to the new system. By all means-fuck it up sumore.

      i think my team is good. now i'm 3-5. i have to stream the weekly allowed 4 spots to win cause other guy is streaming.

    • streaming is chicken shit strategy. Takes the fun out fantasy basketball. Why bother taking your time to do research and draft. If you have to stream to win then that means you werent the best team and do not deserve to be crowned league champ.

    • i used to be against it, although that was when i had drafted a great team in years past. this year, in a 14 team league, with a very limited team, all bets were off.

      fortunately our league has a 3 move/week, 40 move/season limit, so it wasn't like some leagues last year where the final week was move after move after move. plus the waiver wire isn't as strong as a 10 or 8 team league.

      also, some weeks you are already handicapped because you have 4-6 less games played than your opponent, which makes streaming almost necessary.

    • streaming was the worst when you could just add and drop as many players as you wanted. Now in my league it's 4 a week. It's good strategy and if you need stats its the way to go. It really only works if you know what your doing.

    • I concur with the King Fish streaming in regular season and you look like a jerk....stream in the playoffs and you look like a winner.
