The Bobcats are above .500 at 4-3, let that sink in...

mind blown


Brendan Haywood for MVP

although Knicks being 5-0 is equally as shocking

Quick Fantasy question


Are we supposed to have a line-up ready to go every single night?? If so how is that even possible? For example like tonight only 3 of my guys have games not sure how it is for my opponent but I'm just wondering about this because I've never played fantasy type games before that required building a roster

Thanks for the help

if one of your players has a game that night, make sure he is in your starting lineup and not on the bench. Make sure this is done daily (you can set rosters days in advance if you want). If only 3 of your players are playing tonight, then whatever stats they get is yours. If your opponent has 5 that same night, then he gets stats from those 5.

Occasionally you will have more players with games than starting roster spots , in which case you will have to predict who will have the better night and/or help you in stats you are losing but close to winning/winning but by a small margin. For example if you have to choose between Jason Terry and Kris Humphries and you are losing by 5 3's but have a 20 rebound lead, play Terry.

I hope this helps

I just saw that. Felton and Smith have really stepped up so far this season. This is all without Stoudemire as well. It'll be interesting to see when he returns if he can fit in.

were'nt the knicks better w/out Amare last year?

I'm drunk, so the possibility of me being wrong is very good, but i believe i remember reading last season that the knicks had a better record w/out him than they did w/ him.

anyone know for sure?

I believe it was when Melo was out and Lin + Amare were running things

basically the team succeeds when one of them is not playing...is a trade in the works?

I definitely think one of them should be traded (Amare). Get some more depth.

Amare to Toronto? Trade Ed Davis and a 1st round pick Amare when healthy can run the floor well (that's all he did in Phoenix) and Casey wants to run a transition offense. It'll give JV someone legit to teach him post work and can take the pressure off Bargs from wanting to take 20 shots a game

but NY won't trade him within the division

That would be awesome but like you said, I don't think that'll ever happen.

this article was written after Amare went out of the Heat series

it is a yahoo fan take, but i believe the stats are legit


When Stoudemire was in the lineup this season, the Knicks went 22-25 (.468 winning percentage) and averaged 1.6 more points than their opponents. When he missed games due to injuries, the Knicks went 14-5 (.737 winning percentage) and had a point differential of +7.2 points per game. The team averaged more points on offense and gave up fewer points on defense during those 19 games without him, posting an obscenely good record in the process.

THIS JUST IN........

Damion Lillard is the real deal. He's got ice water in his vains. He reminds me a lot of Derrick Rose. Not just their games but their demeanor as well
