....I can't believe it. Rondo has torn ACL out for the season. I'm in win now mode. If anyone who's not wants him Im willing to give him up for another point guard
I have Mike Conley and Jeremy Lin, and I'm not looking to win this season, so I'd be interested in trying to make a Rondo deal work.
Edit: Also, was it decided what happens if you finish the season/off-season over the cap?
E.g.: I have Westbrook 5 years, after this year 4 years will be left and that's the number that will count against my cap.
Promted by the recent trade by Tucas and Kadazzle I wanted to bring up the rulebook and also start a discussion on some other issues.
1. League rules / the 'nascent' rulebook
In november I posted that I was working on a rulebook to cover some (perceived) holes and unadressed issues in the rules. I did sent a draft to Joey and Apollo but as of yet they probably haven't had the time / taken the time to give me some detailed feedback. Hence the fact that there hasn't been any followup on this. My suggestion now would be that I'll post this in the off-season so everyone can give feedback (which is in line with what Joey suggested to me in a mail earlier). As not to create some confussion with this year's rules it's probably better not to do this now (as I'm suggesting some further restrictions to trades in relation to the cap which e.g. would make this recent trade 'illegal'). This years rules have been published by Apollo on the league group page. Some things might not be covered by this, but so far, there haven't been many problems with this and we can discuss it here together if any problem arises.
2. Inactivity by LilRomeo
LilRomeo hasn't set his line-up since some point in december. Skywalker mentioned that he knows someone who would love to take over the team. I'm up for that if you guys agree as well; I expect any manager who brought forward by Skywalker will probably be an active manager and there haven't been active forum members showing interest in the league as far as I know.
3. The draft / lottery
Prior to and at the beginning of the season there has been some discussion about how we would go about deciding the draft order. This hasn't been resolved yet, but I think we should start discussing this and come to a decision.
Apollo suggested that, to help prevent blatant tanking the consolation rounds should play a factor in deciding the draft order. I'm all for that and there are different ways to go about this, e.g. start a lottery system or maybe a point system, where you get a number of points based on your regular season finish (high finish = more points) and a number of points based on the play-offs/consolation rounds where finishing high in the consolation rounds means getting less points. Team with the lowest point total gets the highest draft position and so on. I could work this out in an example if we are interested in this, but I'd also welcome any other ideas.
Well then .. lets hope Rudy Gay sees an explosion in numbers now thats he's a Rap. My team could use the boost.
I messaged Apollo last week about having one of my friends take over for Lil Romeo, I knew that guy would flop.
Whatever you guys decide is fine, just keep in mind that he would love to get in on it and is an avid reader of this site :)
Yes, we read that. Skywalker also proposed someone in the league smack box. My idea would be to ask Skywalker's guy as I think he was earlier and put your guy at the top of the waiting list.
Whoever it is, they'll be getting a solid team. LilRomeo is in the play-off hunt with only 14 players and without setting his line-up. I might like to change teams with him as well...
