    The BIG 3!! Lebron, Wade, CP3

    Lebron, Wade, and CP3

    How can people trade 2 or even 3 of their best players to try to get any one of these 3 guys? One guy can't make a fantasy team. Obviously in reality, you'd wanna do anything to get one of these guys (kinda like new york) but in fantasy, there's no point. The people who have these players won't be willing to trade them unless they get 2 or 3 players for him, all of whom would have to be ranked close to the top of their positions. This strategy is pointless. You shouldn't give up your 2 or 3 core players to try to get one that might have a rebound or assist or two more than one of your guys. I noticed one guy traded Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler for Lebron; ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Lebron gives you points rebounds and assists (27.8, 7.2, 6.4). Combined average points for Jamison and Butler = 42.6, 16.5, 6.2. The only area you're losing in are assists. Great trade right?
    Fantasy stats are shown by themselves. The greatness of the player doesn't matter too much in fantasy. You won't win because you have Lebron and Wade on the same team. Keep your good players. People who get offered ridiculous trades for either of these 3 shouldn't just reject it because you don't want to give up Lebron or Chris Paul, because most of the trades that will come your way will be highly profitable to accept.
