I was unbeatable during the season with my lineup of
I sat atop the standings for 5 weeks straight and I was unbeatable in FG% REB STLS BLK TO and I shot so few FT that I could be .800 one week and .600 the next week. So I won like every game 5-4 (even playing two men down holding onto bynum and ford all season!!!) but slowly dropped and made it into the playoffs in 6th spot with a record of 98-88-3. Then without marion I lost STLS and lost REB by 1(to the second best rebounding team) and lost first round 6-3. I learned a lot of fantasy basketball though since this was my frist year in it.
What really kills me is that I could have won if you change one FT missed to a FT made due to my low volume shooting (I picked up bogans for one game and he went 1/5 in FTs got 3 REB and I beleive singlehandedly lost me the week, meaning if Ihad chosen anyone else to stream that week, I would have won...)

5th in private money league (knocked out 1st round of playoffs due to being on holidays and not having access to the net, not to mention the 4 injures that week), 7th in the inside hoops league made a few weeks after the start of the season.
I have learnt alot after my first season, and will definitely be back next year. I'd say the biggest lesson learnt is to actually stay up for live draft (being in Australia means draft is on at 1am on a work night). Also never pick Yao or g-wall again.
I finished first out of ten in a private roto league. It was nice to beat one of the guys in our league because he's been doing this for a long time and always fields a solid team. I had 68 points, next guys had 51.5, 50, 48, etc, so it felt great to distance my team from the rest, thats a cause for celebration. And I was fortunate enough to do it all with Arenas as my first overall pick.
Looking forward to playing in a bunch of leagues next year. I appreciate the advice from you guys around here this year.
1st, 2nd, 3rd in my public leagues. Woohoo I did well in public leagues!
Finished 9th/20 in my keeper league, but I had to deal with Wade's injury. That dude's scaring me, he really is looking like the next Penny. Might try and deal him.
that's cool man congrats. I'm gonna do at least one public league next year as I just learned about the winners league, which apparently you get in to the following season after winning a public league, or so I seem to follow.
