    Default Good season!

    I just wanted to say job well done to everybody. Regardless if you're going to make the post season or not, it's great to see that everyone stayed active to the very end. That's rare and it makes for a much more interesting season. Even if you're out it's fun to play spoiler in the final weeks.

    Indeed, been a lot of fun so far; only Mangokid gave up and didn't set up his roster anymore.

    I agree Apollo! Much greater degree of participation down the stretch! Its been a really fun season and it's about to get intense! Even though i made predictions earlier, it's honestly anyone's game! We've got a great crop of managers here!

    Was just reading an article on Ersan Ilyasova, saying that "in a Top 5 Keeper League" he would definitely be a keeper.
    Whats the difference between Top 5 Keeper, and what we are doing now?
    Is that where you HAVE to keep 5 players?

    And yes, I fully agree. Has been a great year! And I would contend that Mango had NOT given up. He was setting lineups when we were playing just last week. I think.
    Anyway, has been a lot of fun, and I look forward to getting a couple upsets in the Playoffs.
    Next year should be even better!

    Might be my bad. Sorry Mangokid, might have been only the week we played.

    I've been putting some thought into how to structure the keepers. Here is what we'll do:

    • Each returning team can use a keeper tag on as many players as they want as long as they fit within the cap.
    • Each player can be tagged as a keeper twice (ie: you draft the player, you play the season and then you use your keeper tag on the player so that he returns to your team the following season. You can do this two times and as such this will result in you being able to hold a player on your roster for up to three seasons. The keeper tag merely allows you to bypass the draft on a particular player twice.
    • Each team can franchise keeper tag one player. The franchise keeper tag allows you to keep a player for an unlimited amount of time. The catch here is to use the franchise tag again in the future on a different player you must either trade your current franchise player, drop the player or relinquish your rights to the player during the off-season.
    • You can choose to not use a keeper tag or a franchise keeper tag. A player who has been keeper tagged can be franchise tagged later provided you don't have a franchise keeper on roster.

    I'd love to get feedback on this franchise keeper tag as I've never heard of it used elsewhere in a keeper league.
    Was just reading through the original "CBA" for the Season and found this.
    In terms of feedback, I think the system is great! Allows for excitement to carry over year-to-year, and is very fair I'd say.

    Found the "Franchise Player" tag system very interesting. Hadn't seen it earlier.
    If this is the case, then I've got to choose between CP3 and Durant of who earns that tag.

    You can use the keeper tag for both this season and next season, if I read it correctly. You don't have to use the franchise tag, this only starts if you want to keep this player through 2014-2015, which is way in the future

    And don't worry, I already thought about that in case we both still play by then. If Lebron and Durant still play as well as they do know by that year (and I expect they will), I will offer you Lebron straight for Durant, probably already at the beginning of 2013-2014 so we can adjust our teams accordingly, and we can both save $20 by keeper-tagging them for another 2 times (our opponents will love that...)

    It's been said before, even by me on this page ... nevertheless, now that we are near the end of the season, I'd like to stress it again:

    Thanks to all the other managers, this has been the most fun I've ever had in a fantasy game. It's been so much fun, that I've never been more disappointed by a loss than last week, which somehow is a lot of fun.

    (On a sidenote: I do think the reshuffling of play-off seeding, which had me playing first the nr 1 and the next week the nr 2 might be changed, as it would have made me, if I'd won as a nr. 8 seed last week, play the three best teams in a row, while the other finalist has an relatively easy road to the finals, probably is just me being (again) a bad and sour loser).

    Before this league I've only played in public (roto) leagues consisting of 10 teams (without turnovers), where normally you only have a few active players, and usually not very good ones at that. This has been a real struggle, which was a real joy. I had to totally re-wire my team, but that went better than I ever expected and had me putting a lot of work analyzing, going from one of the worst 3pt, fg% and to teams to one of the best and making my team competitive in almost any match-up (with my worst projected matchup continually being Drizz as he had the best change of beating me in both % cats (which in my opinion were crucial in most of my projected match-ups).

    As not a lot of you guys noticed, I almost pulled of, what I think would have been the trade day of the century in RR's basketball keeper league, as at one point I thought I would succeed in getting both Lebron and Durant at the same day; that would have been something, would have to gut my roster to make that happen, but how about going into next seasons draft with the top 2 players for $ 60!(!!!) (!!!!!!) (and I trust my waiver-wire work to have given me lots of chances this year).

    As I (hopingly) predicted in my post about the Walkers: pick-up of the year did indeed become Isaiah Thomas (imo). In the last 30 days he's averaged 16 pts (49% field, 77,6% ft) 3,5 rebounds, 5,4 assists, 1,2 steals, 2,2 turnovers and he has been pretty consistent.

    The only downsite playing from Europe against you North-Americans (you know, 'those kind of people') is me missing some information just before the games are played and not being able to adjust my line-up just because I'm usually (on nights before workdays) in bed when the games start; that hurt me a couple of times.

    Overall: it's been more than great; the best thing about joining this forum. Hopefully next year we'll have a similar bunch of dedicated managers!

    On a last note: thanks Apollo for setting this up, you are now one of my ten most favorite admins on here

    There is no way to change it.

    Yeah, there is always hope for all teams. I mentioned earlier in the season when Skywalker put out his infamous Power Rankings that all it takes is a few injuries and the whole league is turned upside down. Well, he(1st in the standings) got bumped in round one due to injuries. I was third in the standings and I also got bumped mainly because my team got nailed with injuries in my opinion. The semi-finals features three underdogs. Just goes to show you that the only thing that matters is making the playoffs. Everything else means nothing. It's a brand new day in round one.

    This year has been a lot of fun.

    First time I ever participated in an auction draft. I like it much better than other style.

    I play with a bunch of buddies every year in another fantasy league. We play with a win awarded for winning at least 5 of the categories. Every year I have killed it in the regular season (always finishing 1st or 2nd) only to lose in the first round of playoffs. This year, I finished 6th after starting the year 0-4 and am now playing in the finals in that league too (no offense but I care a little more about that one as there is $120 riding on it - although I've already guaranteed $60 as I'll finish 2nd no matter what).

    Anyways, my point besides pointing out I am awesome, is once the playoffs come, anything can happen.

    I look forward to next year regardless of what happens in the finals.

    Sigh, 4th against his year. Hopefully I'm not 4th again next year.

    What sucks most is that dropping Wesley Matthews (who was playing trash when I dropped him (like a day before Gerald Wallace got traded) bit me in the ass. That and Gerald Wallace being hurt all this week. Ran into bad luck with injuries all throughout the playoffs.

    Yeah, if you had Matthews instead of me even for only today, you would have won this matchup; it's mostly a good idea to wait a day until after the trade deadline (salt, rubbing ...).

    I think everybody got hurt by injuries (it cost me a spot in the final with injuries to Calderon, Nene and Tony Allen; but then again, all my opponents had similar problems in the playoffs and usually with higher ranked players).

    I experienced a big injury hit losing Billups and Bogut in the regular season, but injuries KILLED me in the first round vs Soft Euro. DRose missed 4, Ray Allen misses 4, And Pekovic, Jarret Jack and Carl Landry missed 1 each.

    Nevertheless it was a fantastic year! It's been a lot of fun!

    Congrats Matt! You had a great year and deserve the win... but i want my trophy back!!! haha

    Now the conversation turns to keepers.. who's everyone keeping???

    I pretty much dropped anyone who I'd keep because of injuries so I'm probably just going to start form scratch next season.
