    NASH for ANTHONY ?

    THIS QUESTION IS FOR ALL THE NON-CHEATERS THAT PLAY FANTASY BASKETBALL......i'm a commish in my league..where commish allows or disallows trades ......nash for anthony came across as a trade....what i look for first ,whether its a multi-player trade or not, i match up player for player by rankings at the beginning of the year...then by current rankings....if theres a vast difference in both, i look closer.....to ask why would 1 team trade all better players to the other......in nash for anthony,nash ranked 6 at the beginning and 16 now.....and anthony ranked 39 at the beginning and 41 now....i consider that a big difference....even though they are both stars in the league...nash by all accounts is definately the superior fantasty player...not in any particular catagory.....but overall...way better...1 rounder compared to forth...so i had to look deeper....because art this point i thought the trade was fishy.....so i looked at positional need of both teams....the team giving up nash HAD to be desperate for either a SF or PTS cat....right ? ..well...he had lewis durant ,carter,deng,price and stackhouse to play SF with only cassell,barry and conley at point guard....so this complete look at the trade lead me to believe that he wasnt doing it to better his team.....whether it was collusion/cheating....i really dont know ...but he wasnt trying to improve his team...at the rest of the team in the leagues expense since the team getting nash already had deron williams and baron davis ...so i vetoed the trade ...the guy getting nash trashed me saying that he cant believe in a million years that the trade didnt go through...then he dropped all the players he could...i cleaned up his mess before anybody could pick up his players.....my question is....1. should i vetoed it or not ? if not 2. was it a severe over-reaction on his part ?
