Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I just wanted to take a quick pole, and also vent a little.
In this condensed season, would you have rather:
A) Gotten an extra week or two of fantasy games in, but had to do the finals during the last week of regular season.
B) Had a shorter overall fantasy season, but got to have the playoffs end before the final week of NBA season.
C) I don't care about your stupid fucking pole and wish you'd go jump off a tall bridge!
(BTW, I'm guessing I'll get either no responses at all, or mostly C's lol)
I made the finals in 5 out of 6 leagues I played in this year, which is very good for me. And I'm only losing 1 of them right now, mainly because of luck though. Some of my opponents, some of my other friends and many people on this message board have had their season ruined due to the finals week coinciding with the last week of the season.
This is my 3rd year playing Yahoo Fantasy Ball and having had some experience I can without a doubt say:
Finals/ playoffs during the last week or so of the regular season basically means your core players are going to rest and you might lose to a technically inferior team. Your finals rosters shouldn't be full of scrubs playing big minutes on tanking teams.
I think yahoo needs to change its add settings if the Finals which is what everyone plays for is 2 weeks. I had no idea the 4 adds in my league was all I got. It explained the tied breakers at a appropriate time why not explain you get 4 or however many adds.
I'd say A... Condensed season isn't good for injuries (too much this season) but, every year in the last week of the season many coaches in the NBA bench their top guys to get them some rest (Pop always does it, Rivers too) or shut down their inj guys because they are out of the PO race and they want a better draft pick (and with this very good coming draft many teams tanked, much more than last season).. this year is just more difficult to win because almost everyone can miss a game, so you have just to work harder... my best choice was to have a stream spot in almost every team, once I found a good player to trust for the rest of the season I cut another guy (because of an injury) and re-start in the same way... It seems to be working good for me, I already get a 1st place (with a 6th seed) and now I'm fighting for 2 more 'ship (with a 7th seed and with a 1st seed) and I have a very good chance to win with both... I had another team but I lost in the first round so I ended up 5th (if I had won I'd have finished at least in 3rd place for sure)
