These are the returning managers thus far. Please let me know whether via PM or here who will your keepers be. Those managers who will not be returning is because they either did poorly on last year's league or has not been on the site for a while.

We can also use this thread for discussion.

Does everybody on the roster still count for keeper purposes? I'm not sure what the rules were/are as far as this goes.

If we can still keep any two players on our team: Wade & Dwight.

Yea everyone still counts. Me, you, Indiansfan337 and Devils get to keep our players for one more year (after this year). So we will be having to trade our players during the next year.

Also Mace, let me know if you have any changes to make. I need to know at least one week before the live draft.

I'm back for sure. Is the draft order inverse of last season's finish or randomized?

I am keeping Chris Paul for sure, still deciding whether or not to retain Pau Gasol. I am hoping to hear the draft order before deciding on that.

The draft order will be randomized as it is every year. The draft order will be determined sometime towards the end. I will have someone anonymous and trust worthy to go into the randomization website and give us the draft order.

As soon as I get everyone to register into the league and the full is full, I am going to have someone (one of the mods not in this league) randomize the order for us just like it was done last year.

Sports Illustrator
09-12-2010, 09:40 PM
Ok here are the numbers that I have assigned for everyone:

1. Sports Illustrator
2. _Supreme_
3. Devils05
4. IndiansFan337
5. Bob_at_York
6. Macedonian
7. DQL
8. nYk_way
9. Joshtd1
10. DamnGoat
11. Kings49sGiants
12. FOBolous

The order was taken from the initial post of this thread, completely randomized.

In a few moments, I am going to try to get a moderator to randomize the numbers for me without him knowing the purpose of randomizing these 12 numbers nor knowing who was assigned to which numbers. Once the moderator has done this, I will kindly ask the mod to post the results here and explain exactly what he did.

Someone just asked me but I'll just say it here again. You are certainly allow to trade your spot in the draft to someone else OR trade one of your keepers for a spot in the draft. You can also trade one keeper for someone else's keeper and it wouldn't count towards the keepers rule. All of these things can be done prior to the draft, just so you all know.

can I still change my keepers? I'm not quite sure if Rose is worth being picked at #15 overall. Plus I already have Deron as my first selection. Gotta pick up some good big men

btw Durant at #6 and Kobe at #19 for team SI?? Holy crap :speechless:

So much for being a keeper league....Out of 24 possible keepers, only 9 players are being kept? That's pretty weak.

I am willing to trade Gasol for anyone's 2nd round pick. If you are interested, let me know in here or via PM.

If everyone isn't keeping players and people are auto-drafting this is going to get messy as hell (You can't pre-rank accordingly when we don't know who all the 1st round picks are going to be). We should have started drafting live in here a long time ago to avoid that.

SI, by chance has Yahoo upgraded at all where we can enter partial draft results & then finish the draft on their site? (I haven't really browsed their NBA upgrades this season)

The keeper players are updated on yahoo already. There will be no auto picks because I already entered the keeper picks a long time ago. If you look at the league, you will notice the changes as well. So don't worry, everything is under control here. This is the same way we did it last year as well.

OK... I'd take Gasol for my 2nd round pick!

Sports Illustrator
10-08-2010, 03:48 PM
Indiansfan, you have to tell me if you are keeping Gasol or not. The reason for that is because Gasol is not listed on your roster and if you want to keep Gasol, I have to list him in.

Assuming Indiansfan makes a trade, Indiansfan will have Gasol picking in the 2nd and then make the trade after tonight's draft for whoever the 2nd round pick was.

10-08-2010, 05:37 PM

It's a deal as long as you will be live at the Draft for me to tell you who to pick for me.

Yea just make sure you tell Mace who to pick when he is up to pick.

In case if Mace happens to pick someone else, he keeps that player and you keep Gasol unless you would be willing to take that player he chose.

i'm going to apologize to yall ahead of time. if i can't get the drafting window to work, i'm not going to be an active participant in the league. i can't get into the game if i don't create my own team.

I understand your frustrations, but if you are not active we are going to remove you for another owner. Keeper leagues aren't competitive if every team isn't active and committed to the league long-term.

yea i just double check the team the computer picked for me to see if i can work with it. if the team is half way decent...i would've try to stick with it and tweak it but the team is pure crap. with the exception of Granger and Boozer, everyone i have is pure crap. i have absolutely no one at PG (Mo Williams sucks), no one at SG (Ben Gordon sucks), crap for PF (I hate Boozer and Jamison is too old/injury prone), and absolutely pure crap at C (wth is Jermaine O'neal and Bynum).

i have no young player with pontential i would possibily want to keep. heck...i wouldn't want to "keep" any of the players i have on my team. none of the players on my team are players i would draft except for Danny Granger. Boozer isn't one of my top choices at PF. i honestly prefer Okafor over Boozer.

if yall need to replace me. fine. i don't see how anyone can work with that team. sorry if i seem really rude or harsh...i'm just really pissed off cause i couldn't get into the draft. I've been looking forward to this draft for a long time. heck...i've been looking forward to fantasy basketball all year and now one of my team is ruined. ****ing ****.

10-09-2010, 09:20 AM
Like I already posted @ the league home page Yahoo didn't use the pre-rank I set. May God damn them for this.

I am not happy at all, although my team certainly could have been worse. I do consider it workable while I don't expect to compete for a top spot with this, but we'll see.

However some of the players I got I would NEVER EVER have picked, so I am very open to trades.

PG - Kidd/Collison/Davis
SG - Wade/Ginobili/Garcia
SF - Magette/Azubuike/Battier
PF - Garnett/Brand/Harrington
C - Dwight/Dalembert/Milicic

Dwight is the only one untouchable. Wade & Collison are negotiable I guess, but I will not part with them unless I really like the deal I'm getting.

I already sent someone an offer involving Jason Kidd, so his availability is depending on the outcome of that.

I just want to go on record in saying that I will NOT be providing invites back for next year to those who are planning on tanking the rest of the way. Even if I had the crappiest team ever, I would still compete to the end. I would spend extra effort in trade proposals, waiver wire pickups and etc.

Actually, I was in a league two years ago in which I had my entire team autopicked. I knew I wasn't going to make the draft, so I went ahead and pre-ranked. I am not sure if it was my mistake, or yahoo's fault, but my pre-rankings did not go through. I put in more effort into that league than any other league and did everything I could. I didn't end up winning the league, I finished in 4th place but it's better than tanking and ending up in 16th place (last place). There was also a user by the name of "ruven" who was in this league a few years ago, his team got autopicked and he ended up in 4th place. LL also autopicked his team last season and still ended up making the playoffs.

Yes I have seen it. I am not going to tell you how to run your team but the first step would be to try and figuring out which are your strongest categories, which are your weakest categories. Then try implementing those stronger categories into being more stronger, which will probably make your weaker categories even weaker. After that, make sure to have at least 5 strong categories where you can at least try to beat people 5-4 at the very minimum. I just offered you a free strategy in exchange for asking you to do me a favor and please don't tank the team.
