You caBll that an average draft? The first 4 players I got lower than they should've gone.


Inactive? I had the 5th most moves this year, and 6th or 7th most of the sesaon. Maybe teams don't use the add/drop strategy in the playoffs?





And this thread isn't about who managed the best, or who did the best managing.


It's about the Best Team. It's all about the Team.

It's about the Best Team. It's all about the Team.

I don't think drafting a player lower than their average draft position makes you good (just maybe makes others bad). Since with the first few rounds, you can't really go wrong anywhere (other than injury proness). But, I'd judge it more by sleeper picks and the ones near the end that can really make you're team amazing (like my friend who took calderon last pick of the draft or taking hedo who turned out to be great).

Also, the reason you went 104-80 or whatever was cause you only had roy and dirk for the last week and before than it was gibson and foye...you're not a good manager...anyone might as well pick up marion and yao and bynum right now and post a better team than you...

1. I think there was Windows 95, 98, and Mill. Don't ever remember seeing 96.

2. That is XP

3. It's not mine and is from a computer lab.


4. Thanks for trying see you later.

I didn't edit my lineup for a while either.


When I actually drafted that team, the people in the league were calling me dumb and telling me I wasn't going to win, but I did.



Marion/Yao/Bynum are injured.
Dirk/Roy are healthy.


If anyone can post a better TEAM RIGHT NOW, then win. I can pick up Yao/Marion too. But it's all about the Best Team Going into the Finals.

Yao/Marion = Worthless right now.
Dirk/Roy= Worth a lot right now.

Do you see any difference?





And once again, it's not about the best manager, it's about the best team. THat's all that matters.

This was the final roster of my team last year (10-team league, ended up 1st in regular season, but then failed in the playoffs because of Dwyane Wade's injury):



Remember - this was in 2006-07. Keep your eye on the red bordered players, I also had Deng, Gordon, Nocioni (for a while), Dalembert, and Diaw. My team name was 3D (Dwyane, Dirk, Deron, but I had a bunch of other D's including David West).

Default Re: Best Yahoo Public Team Ever?

even though you are in the finals and have a great team, id think youd want more than 2 centers.
just my 2 cents there.

my team as it stands:

g:
mike bibby
raymond felton
gilbert arenas
deron williams
brandon roy

f:
danny granger
andrei kirilenko
caron butler
lamar odom
jeff foster (had to pick up when kaman went down)

c:
dwight howard
samuel dalembert
rasho nesterovic

i pretty much dominated until injuries claimed a ton of my players, but im in playoffs, so we shall see how it pans out.

I talked a lot of trash in the league all year, especially at the draft.
Some of my players were FA pickups, but that doesn't matter, I took the risk. But most of that team was assembled during the Draft.
And the best team ever assemble ends up losing the final. Up 6-3 now but will lose assist and 3's when the scores update overnight.

Yeah, sounds a lot like the Patriots this year...

You should see my team Name....New England Patriots...



Now I know how they felt. Well I knew then too, but now I experienced it first hand.



Dominating team, Possibly GOAT, seemingly unbeatable, had the lead the whole way before blowing it in the end, and season is over.




(Not to mention my great players sitting out while his players have some career nights)

Nope, it's bad managing, you added garbage players for the final day when Sessions is sitting on the waiver or you could of added him earlier in the week to lock up assist. Crisis could have been averted, but you failed.

Or maybe some of my players would've played their final season game like all of my opponent's did. And he also had some crazy career games. Not to mention Caron Butler's injury.


But I had no idea that I actually needed to do anything to finish the week off. I had such a dominating team. And come on, who thought Sessions was going to get that many assists.


But regardless, obviously every team that loses, you can say something to criticize or it wouldn't have lost, including the Patriots.


Should've, coudl've, would've, works for every team that loses. Oh well though....Just like the NE Patriots, my dominating team also fell when I needed it to step up the most.

once again, the karma police show they actually exist. Glove will still cling to last year, and next year it will be '2 years ago' and so on and so forth. I guess the jury is in on who' team is better

my team >> your team because i won the championship, therefore by the chain law of fantasy basketball my team is the best team ever. ever.

it aint easy
