DON'T DITCH BYNUM! Just use his injury to save yourself some games played. Know what I mean? or is this not public? if that's the case than just dump him. If you can trade him than that rocks.

you need to trade Wade and someone else for a better big guy. Why the hell do you have Eddy curry? That's unbelievable. DROP HIM! Foye's not worth holding on to, but at this point you might as well. You have other things to worry about. Salmons MIGHT be good to keep, but keep your eye on that situation in SacTown!

you're getting killed because your team seems to be very unbalanced. I'm sure you'red doing GREAT in a few categories and pretty damn bad in others. If it's roto than the point is to balance out ALL categories. All you can do now is trade. And it doesn't help to have Bynum out now. Look in your FA list and maybe dump Garcia and udrih and nab somebody who will help you with assists. Anthony Carter is available in lots of leagues so nab him if you can. Try trading Ginobili. People like him and he's got good value. It doesn't hurt to have and trade Paul either. Number one in Y game always has great value. Maybe trade away paul and one other player for nash and another real good player to fix some of your problems. You don't necessarily have to do that but something along those lines

How DARE you even consider that deal! NEVER EVER EVER!!! Dwight Howard would be the best guy you get back in that deal, but taking him would guarantee you lose FT% by the end of the season for roto or kill you in that category every week if you're doing h2h.

Really depends on what you need, but probably should stick with Manu. Will be on top 25 easily this season. Too good and has more trade value I think. Keep/Take Manu.

It's true! Bond, what if I'm just a 14 yo kid, man? Do you feel like a man, Bond? Do you feel like you've just bettered us all by letting us all know that we are idiots with no life because we don't go around finding random people ONLINE to try and attack them. Good job, buddy! I am now bettered after what you've done for us. gr8bone and I are just having some fun on a site that millions of people go on and have fun with. That's all that fantasy is too if you haven't heard. It's about fun and bragging rights especially for the competitive ones. You don't seem to the type of person that fits in anywhere. School, work, family. No girls like you so you settle for anger. Good luck to you, Bond.... James Bond.

You're problem is that you have three potentially weak categories. You're obviously weak in TOs which too many people let slide by. You have a bunch of LOW FG% shooters so that could make your FG% low, but you have a lot of high shooters so you might be mediocre. your blocks are ok, but again with the players these days it looks mediocre for your team. Strong every else though I think, but I could be wrong. Should win your league, but definitely not the greatest team ever because the greates team ever won't have a single weak category. Sorry, bro.

All I have to say is patience is a virtue and so is faith, man. Just believe that Hinrich will be back cuz You will probably regret doing this trade if you get rid of him. I think He'll eventually come around, but you just need to be patient with him. maybe just bench him a while until he becomes more consistent. If it's a public league than you need to bench players anyway so think of it as a good opportunity to not go over your limit too much. Also don't be rash to play him because he might have a good game here and there. ignore that until he gets consistent because I think he will, but it's all up to you, bro.
I drafted the season started and I don't think ANY of the players I have are players I drafted. After all the trades and pick ups and patience with certain players and dumping those that I knew wouldn't last I need to know what you all think of my ALMOST final result. 12 man roto public.
-empty spot right now- (probably getting Louis Williams)

statistically that actually could be a good trade for you if you have a player worth dropping, but you have to factor in if it's worth dropping the player that you are going to drop and if there is a better FA to pick up. Also factor in Shaq's age, health and the fact that he could EASILY miss lots of games or get hurt or his stats could go down. ALSO! Brewer has a lot of potential and will probably have a lot of fantasy value this season. J. O'Neal is the same deal as Shaq. You can't risk picking up two guys like that. If they weren't so risky than I'd totally do it, but it looks like they're going to make you want to pull hair out of your head this season. I say send a counter offer. Give Garnett, but leave one of the O'Neals out and put a good and reliable player in his place.

Man, you need to get rid of Fisher, Turkoglu, and Brand NOW! i'm sure there is someone worth picking up over them in the FA list or try and trade them. You have some decent comp. It's hard to tell just by eyeballing all of them, but teams like 1,2,3,7, and maybe one or two more look like they have lots of potential. You should easily make the top half with your team, but make some adjustments so you are not too weak in ANY category and get rid of some of your risks. Is Ronnie Brewer taken. He's still ranked in the 300s and had an AMAZING preseason and was named starting sg for the JAZZ. He'll be Huge this year. Easily in top 100 so pick him up NOW! Good luck buddy.

If you have someone worth dropping than DUDE!....... You gotta do it. Good centers are hard to come by. Albeit Garnett MIGHT get C status, but two good Centers that will boost the crap out of your FG%, Reb, Blks. Depending on who you drop is really what it comes down to though. Just think long and hard about it. Boozer and Okafor are SOLID. Garnett is GARNETT. You'll figure it out. I'd definitely do it though if i weren't losing too much with the player that I have to drop. BTW Boozer will probably rock the NBA this year and LOTS of people like him and would trade for him so that makes him have GREAT trade value.

You DO have a really solid team. Might not be the best team in your league, but could be. your bottom 5 guys are all big ?s, but have GREAT potential. Davis might get traded and might be giving up some of his minutes to the young ones, but is still very valuable in fantasy. Arenas has Atrocious FG%, but seems like you have lots of high FG% players to make up for that, but Arenas is your top scorer so it will bring that down. TOs might be a bit, but not too sure. Your team is a 6/10 at worst because there is no way a lot of your players are going to choke. like I said it's pretty solid. At best I give it a 9/10. I'm guessing it will be an 8/10 in my opinion.
So I've been making lots of trades and messing with my team and here is how it looks after this final trade goes through. Rate it and also give me some advice on what to do about picking up some more assists and FG%.... I have one open spot on my roster and will pick up a pg probably for the assists and because I need another one, but I might wait until I trade out. Might try and pull a multi player trade for Nash and get rid of Kobe (unfortunately he's My fav players, but seems like the only thing I can do at this point)! Oh and I think I should get one more reliable center. Rate IT! please...
