It's fine. But it does nothing to solve the main problem of the league, and that problem is the difference in skill and dedication among the managers.

I've seen the standings, and... well... 31 points!!! how can the same team suck so much at assists and rebounds at the same time? points and blocks? Come on, that's unacceptable

Only in this league could RF turn an injured K.Love, Gerald Henderson, Dragic and Kevin Seraphin into Kyrie Irving, Robin Lopez, and Jeff Teague

Take the word injured out from the front of Love and totally fine trade....in fact I overpaid. Robin Lopez is no better then Seraphin at this point. Lopez has been terrible. I have got lucky with Teague because he as a joke when I got him. If Gentry being fired lets Dragic loose then he'll be a great 6 th round keeper because he was insanely good last year as a starter. Disappointing this yr so far.

Why would you take the word injured out when he's injured?

That's where the keeper portion comes into play.

Injured right now but he is easily a top 5 pick for next season.

It was just the kind of tank job deal RF keeps complaining about. He participates in just as many of them as anyone. I don't often agree with FC but I do feel as though various complaints/rule changes are more in relation to his standing in the league rather than the overall benefit of everyone else.

I am looking to trade one of my guards (Conley, Jennings, Wade) for a defensive big (blocks, rebounds)

Too lazy to check right now FC, but what is Conley's keeper value?

You got Nene, I don't understand why you'd want blocks and rebounds.

He turns the ball over too much... that's why I'll keep him on the bench for now... until I receive another offer of Cousins caliber

Such as? I now have Kyrie....would love to be able to keep him as a first twice after next season but I won't be able to if we change that rule?

Reducing keepers to 3....helps me how? Changing waiver system to what everone wants? Chopping block for botth teams. You can not be happy with the deals....but all I did was hit 'accept' with the Love trade. The Kyrie deal is more then fair.

Better question is, how many ideas from opposing managers have you not shot down instantly? My count is at zero.

I'm happy to consider ideas that tweak the league. What ideas that seem logical have not been considered? But I will be honest, I'm not really looking for a total change to the league. We've made adjustments along the way, and some of these changes are no different. And lots of ideas have a bigtime split amongst GMs and it's difficult to weed out what might be best overall for the league.

Some of the discussions we've had before, such as about pre determined draft order (last goes first) as an example. We don't need to re discuss to get to the same outcome.

Also, no those 2 deals were not "more than fair" not even close. Nor was the Gortat/Hayward/Gee for Horford/Paul George deal, even though i'm sure you spun it to say that Gortat will get better and reach his last season averages, Hayward is trending upwards and that Gee is just an awesome throw in. Not hating on you, just stating the facts. You and FC operate, reason, and make deals in such a similar fashion which is probably the reason for the clash.
