Default This is one of the reasons why i hate fantasy ..

I was trying to make a trade for some steals and rebounds. So i offered Joe Johnson and emeka okafor for Raja, speedy, and crhis kaman which is at least somehow even then the guy makes a counter offer for J.J. and J.O. for speedy, raja and primoz brezec.

I can't even begin to say how blatantly unfair that is the way i see it is i'm giving him 2 second round picks for 2 late rounders and a guy in brzec the i'd say is available in 75% of fantasy leagues.

Any body else have crazy attempts at trades like that?

Who cares? Just reject it. Why would you hate fantasy because of that?

You get used to offers like that when you're in a league or two with Ridonks.

Wait, you didn't like the Iverson for Jeffries deal? Jared's starting on the Knicks man, he's going to go for 25/15/10/4 easily.

I had to lead a group of managers last year to veto a Michael Petrius for Mike James trade last year.

I always start my offers somewhat lopsided just in case i'm dealing with a sucker. If they don't bite, I just keep on making the offer a little more respectable until they take it. If they dont take it, move on to the next person... thats what u gotta do sometimes, especially if ur in a league where u dont know anybody.

Obviously I had Kobe. I thought it would be obvious. In hindsight though, I actually suppose bigboi's right. It's not THAT bad. But still, not anything I'd consider.

I was trying to remember a deal for LeBron that someone sent me. It was hilarious.

Yeah, that's a good call. That's what I'm learning at the moment. But the Kobe (wasn't LeBron, it was Kobe) deal was insane. I remembered who it was. It was TheEvenBiggerBlackGuy, and he offered Larry Hughes and Ricky Davis for Kobe and Bibby I believe. Not positive about the second guy, but it was somebody solid. Anyways, that was flat out RidonKulous.

you should always start w/ a deal in your favor before you try to improve. Just check out the weakness of you oponent and exagerate it. send him a msg about that weakness and how you can help him through trade.

I just got arenas, Joe johnson for wilcox, Ja.Will, joshHoward because he doesnt have a good sf and pf

I got pierce and Ja.Will for krstic and ford because he doesn't have a decent center

I just convinced a manager to drop Bonzi for May... I picked up Bonzi for Duhon (I had #1 waiver)...
