15th pick, ouch!!!

Like I said, any time but the 24th works for me. So I'm good for any other time and date.

No, because you can win steals or blocks catagory with them. Which is 2 of the 9 catagories.

well you try to win as much catergories as you can because each category (pts,stl,blks,rebs...) counts as a win..so if you beat your opponent 7-2..your record is 7-2. you need to find players that will contribute in stls/blks because they are rare and you ultimately try to win as many categories as you can

guys like mourning and przbilla will help win you blks and rebounds. just like QRich in '04 won you 3s alone. it's better to have specialists sometimes.

Ohhhhhhhhh so let me get this straight:

If I win 5 of 9 categories, even the most unimportant ones (assume 5 are really unimportant), I win the match?

Yahoo fantasy sure as hell didn't do it this way lol.

You'll go 5-4 for the week. So yes you would win your head to head matchup. And the 5-4 gets added to your overall record.

And yahoo is like that. You can even tie in catagories.

I suppose I vote for the 11:30 EST time change. It's only 2 1/2 hours later and it should only conflict with social life, not work or school or anything anybody has to attend.

By the way, I can't decide if I like picking 16th or not...I do like getting 2 picks in a row though.

pick 16 can be really good or really bad. you have to wait 15 picks but you will get two quality players..if you pick them complementary to each other and build around them you can score big with em, perhaps more than any other tandem

haha its cool that im gettin bron or kobe or someone like that but honestly im not sure if I like that pick all that much. I mean, I have to wait 30 picks to pick my second player...

anyways, if anyone doesnt like their pick...trading picks in any form or fashion is possible.

When does your overall record come into play?

This thing goes by weekly, so does that mean your performance for the week in a category is the average of your team's player's stats in the games he played that week?

i.e. My players score 300 points in one week consisting of 3 games. So my points would be 100 then?

Or do values come from your team's player's ever-slightly-changing season averages?

11:30 would suck incomparable ass for me btw. I have a quiz for 7% of mark at 8:30 the next morning.
