So rules....


$300 auction budget.
Maximum of 3 keepers. Money spent on keepers will be deducted from your auction budget in the draft.
Maximum amount of years to keep a player is 3 years (meaning you can keep them up to 2 years in a row). If they expire, they enter the draft pool.
Original amount spent on a keeper will follow that player as he is traded.
Anyone picked up from the wire and kept has a value of $0.

I have through Friday off this week, and any day in there would be great by me at any time.

Weekends are really bad for me unless it can be really late, like 10:30pm eastern or after.

I have afternoon/night classes all through out the week so weekends are usually best for me, particularly Saturdays.

Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of next week would be great then. Those are my 3 days off and could do it any time.

If it was later in the week, I'd push for as late as is possible in the day. Like I said earlier, 10:30pm eastern or after.

I mean if it was that late I could do it during the week too. I just doubt most people will be able to on a weekday. I don't get home until at least 9-10PM on the weekdays.

weekday nights are preferred but not wednesdays. so mon, tue, thur would be my preferred options.

also, i agree auctions suck. but ill do it if thats what the consensus is.

Shiver
10-05-2010, 09:56 AM
But in a 20-team league, if you don't use an Auction, then the players at the bottom of the serpentine will get ******. I'm not crazy about an auction either, but the alternative seems worse.

But with 20 people and an auction draft the draft will not go by really fast. You don't want people in the middle saying I have to go to sleep, I have work in the morning. Stuff like that.

Lebron is a wildcard. Not sure I love him as much as I used to love him as a fantasy player when he was the only God in Cleveland. Now he's with 2 other Gods... so I'm not sure what the adjustment will be like.

I like T-Will. Wanted him, but saw him nominated too early. Too many people had money to spend and I didn't want to overpay for him as his price kept getting higher.

You really sold out for Durant, but congratulations on winning the bid and getting the guy you wanted most. I was impressed by all the high bidding, but was content to stay away. So I will be interested to see how all you high bidders (the ones that spent over $150 on a single player) do this season, to see if that was a good decision or not. The depth as a result is pretty bad. Your backcourt is ugly, and your frontcourt depth is very shallow. No matter how good of a season Durant has, I don't think this is a championship caliber team.

Well I can say this... auction drafts are nearly impossible to prepare for because each one is different and you never know where the threshold is going to be. I had no idea Durant was going to go for $215! Or Howard for $200+. So in that respect, it's hard to prepare for how much you will spend on a player. You basically have to wing it and go with your gut. There are different strategies involved. For some, they were going with the "I'm getting my star keeper!"... for others it was getting "bang for the buck"... and for others like Brodeur, it was like "I'm going make sure I have a lot of leftover money!" lmao

I'm really hoping that one of Amir/Ed Davis step up in Bosh's place in Toronto so that I can slide Randolph into my starting C spot. Amir has a great oppurtunity with Davis' injury and should get plenty of minutes early to prove himself.

I'm not in love with my SFs either but I think Hedo should be better than last year in Phoenix's high paced/high scoring offense and CJ Miles has been pretty impressive in the minutes he's getting. Don't sleep on CJ this year. He's listed as SF for some reason in the fantasy league (which is great for me) even though he's pegged to start st SG for Utah right now and he's shooting the ball great.

I told you I only outbid you for reddick cause I was pissed you took Blatche from me. I despise Reddick but I wouldnt be surprised if he started over Vince by the mid point of the season.

I think you had a comment for every player taken. That was awesome! I love having you in live drafts. Makes it fun for everyone... even if you tried to foil my bids and get others to drive up my price!

Good luck with those PGs... yikes. Just remember.... $16 left over. :D

Wade was not worth the cost, imo. He's always missing time with injury. Hamstring injuries linger... you should know that being a football fan.

LOL@getting JR Smith you were trying to tell me is a crappy shooter in the NBA thread. He'll be fine player for you. Terry is consistent too. Does he have PG eligibility? That would help you out a lot.

Aren't you a Carter hater? Why did you pursue him? Maybe I'm mistaking you for someone else. Artest was a good buy. As was Evans. He was the player I wanted most on your team. I tried my best to win the bid for him, but let you win out as I had back up ideas and others I had my eye on.

David West went cheap, so kudos for that one. Your frontcourt should be fine. Enough to compete, but I wouldn't expect you do dominate with them.

If you spent your leftover $16 to get a guy like LaMarcus Aldridge who went for $15, you would've been golden. ;)

You mean $2 left for slot? Yeah... I tried to make him feel bad about it too. :D

The thing is... Brodeur ALWAYS leaves a lot of leftover money, but he never learns.

I think he likes the feeling of knowing he has the bid hammer, but then he never knows when the right time is of throwing it down.

I had the hammer for a while, but when my guys I had my eye on were being nominated, I made sure I got them. That's why I beat Brodeur for Collison and now he has crappy PGs.

I'm so happy that you joined our league. We've got a great bunch this year. This is the only fantasy basketball league worth being in on our forum. I know how much people like debating with you in the NBA thread, so I thought having you in this league was a must.

You ended up with a team that will definitely compete hard. A lot rides on the coattails of CP3. You were definitely aggressive in getting him. I was surprised by your strategy, but I guess a lot of people either had the same one, or they followed suit and bought into what you were saying. I noticed the beginning of the draft was an all out WAR for the top shelf talent! You were like, I got my star! Something you wanted to do in a 20 man keeper league. I have to admit, I maintained being a bystander for the most part as one by one, many of you were spending like there was no tomorrow. The guys I was cautiously scared of because they weren't spending was PF, BOS, and Brodeur... I had a feeling they would be my main competition later... and they were.

Iggy was a good get. Definitely a keeper. I don't know what's happening with Rudy Fernandez, but I think he'll eventually be traded. They have Batum up and coming and they just gave Wesley Matthews a brand spankin' new 8 digit contract. I didn't quite get why the bidding for Dorrell Wright kept rising... other than to guess, someone really wanted to have the "I won the bid" feeling. Jamario Moon has a nice opportunity to step up in Cleveland. Thornton's in a crowded situation. I like Thad Young... I keep thinking one of these year's he will really breakout... but I don't see that happening now until Philly trades Iggy. He and Evan Turner will inevitably take up some of that court time.

Millsap was a good get. He'll get you numbers that the person who won Al Jefferson wish they were getting.

You Center situation is a mess, but you had to anticipate that some position would suffer because of the money you used on CP3.

I went in with some sleepers in mind and I think I got about half of them. D-Unit stole some guys like Hickson and McGee though...grr
I had to wait patiently while you all went on a spending spree... I didn't expect to get them as cheap as I did. $8 for Hickson and $4 on McGee. I'm very happy that I didn't end up with Dwight Howard for $200+.

I wanted McGee...

But I got my man Mozgov!



7'1" 270, averaged 13 points in the world championships. Should get 25+ minutes in D'Antoni's system. Rotoworld is projecting 9 points, 7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks and everyone acted like I was taking crazy pills when I grabbed him for 1$.
I seriously thought you getting Mozgov was a nomination timing mistake!

Here's your chance to show us who's boss. :D

your just lucky i accidentally nominated hickson when i did. i had him at the top of my queue but never meant to nominate him. i didnt realize it was my turn to nominate and my clock ran out so it auto nominated him.

I have to make a few changes but this is what i gots...

PG :: Rajon Rondo | George Hill | Jose Juan Barea
SG :: Jason Richardson | Mike Miller | Roger Mason
SF :: Trevor Ariza | Mike Miller | Carlos Delfino
PF :: Tim Duncan | Carlos Boozer | Al Harrington
C :: Al Jefferson

a few guys i don't have listed bc i plan on releasing them
Fricken Awesome PF!

What a haul! I have to admit I was watching how you were using your funds during the entire draft. I knew we would get into more than few bidding battles... and sure enough, you beat me on more than just a few. You beat me out on Rondo (who I REALLY wanted)... Jefferson (who I think will be a beast with Deron dishing to him)... Ariza (who I love in NOR way more than when he was in HOU). Believe it or not, I'm even impressed with the George Hill pick up. Duncan was a wise spend. People kept thinking he's old and that's bad for a keeper league, but you got him at a great price for what his fantasy numbers will be. You got Boozer on the cheap too because he's injured now, but he's a definite keeper candidate. You filled your team out with Miller and Arrington who can stuff your 3s category. Mason, Delfino and Barea will get you steals.

Overall, you have on paper what seems to be a championship caliber team. Awesome draft!

PG: Russell Westbrook/Jerryd Bayless
SG: Joe Johnson/Ronnie Brewer/Gordan Hayward
SF: Travis Outlaw/Quentin Richardson/Josh Howard
PF: Zach Randolph/Tyler Hansbrough/Craig Smith
C: Andrea Bargnani/Jordan Hill/Ryan Hollins

Really lacking in real star power...I had to make do. But it is what it is. haha. They may look a little weak, but i dont hate it, exactly. My depth is really poor in comparison to most, though. I still think I'm destined to be pretty damn bad. Caught me at a bad time, with the lightning. I think I'll kill it next draft. :D

I like the Westbrook/Johnson combo.
There is always ONE GUY who shows up with the bad internet problems and that was you, MOTH! I felt bad for that cause I've had similar wireless problems in the past myself. Last year, I think it was DChess who kept going off and on.

Still, you ended up with a classic MOTH draft that is very solid. I don't know how to define it, but looking at that team it's got some obvious fantasy value as far as category fillers. Bargnani... the best 3pt shooting Center. Joe Johnson, a great assists grabbing SG. Ronnie Brewer, with the "steals" expertise. Randolph the rebounding *****. Q Rich - 3 bombs away!

I really think Randolph was a great buy as far as value went. He's really an underrated fantasy star. Westbrook will be better this year. You have more than 3 guys who you will debate about who to keep. That's rare in a league like this.

Overall, you had a great draft with no real glaring weaknesses.

Brodeur
10-12-2010, 03:04 PM
You mean $2 left for slot? Yeah... I tried to make him feel bad about it too. :D

The thing is... Brodeur ALWAYS leaves a lot of leftover money, but he never learns.

I think he likes the feeling of knowing he has the bid hammer, but then he never knows when the right time is of throwing it down.

I had the hammer for a while, but when my guys I had my eye on were being nominated, I made sure I got them. That's why I beat Brodeur for Collison and now he has crappy PGs.

Next year, Brodeur will do the same thing. :D

I love you B! ;)

Psh, I only left like $40 over in the baseball auction draft.

Real Gunners go in with
PG- Brandon Jennings/ Goran Dragic/ Nate Robinson
SG- Kevin Martin/ Ray Allen/ Ben Gordon/ Kyle Korver
SF- Caron Butler/ Kyle Korver/ Shane Battier
PF- Pau Gasol/ Taj Gibson/ Patrick Patterson
C- Emeka Okafor/ Brad Miller

I might need to trade for some assists, but this team has balance.
I must say... I'm pretty impressed with the collection of talent that you assembled. 1-5 you have a strong unit! I really like Jennings to build upon his success of last year. Martin (if healthy... and that's a very big IF) will be a scoring stud muffin. Butler is like glue who fills up all the stat categories. Gasol is a bonafide stud who never gets hurt. Okafor gives you the important stats you want out of your center and new coach Monty Williams is talking about using him more as a scorer.

Your depth is a nice compliment to what you got too. I can tell you'll be strong in the 3s category. You have some guys that will help you rebound, block shots, score. Okafor is a horrendous FT shooter (worst than Dwight!), so that will hurt you in that category.

But overall, I really like the complete make up of your team. Good job! Hope you have a fun active season. Be sure to post often in this thread.

An active league thread is what makes a league great!

you can still have reddick but youll have to overpay. and the longer you wait the more expensive hell be. im not crazy about rose as a fantasy player but having collison as your #2 is great. like you said, you have a ton of depth at PF/C but obviously lack a decent SG. lewis is a decent scoring sf but he struggled at times more than usual last year and im interested to see how many minutes he gets this year. id expect a decline.

Nah. Randy Foye will be just as good as Reddick. Baron Davis is already hurt. So is Willie Warren. Foye has PG and SG eligibility. Foye is a guy that just brings his hard hat to work every day and he'll fill up enough stats for me as a backup. If he doesn't... he'll be my first waiver drop.

Rashard Lewis is going to get more PT at SF. That will only enhance his game. His first 9 years in Seattle, he played SF and he beasted it up. He'll still play PF, but they want to get Bass more involved. Q Rich certainly isn't exactly standing in Lewis' way when they want to use Lewis as a SF.

Jordan Crawford. Best $1 ever spent perhaps?

Crawford poured in 30 points on 13-of-20 shooting during the Hawks' loss Tuesday.
Spin:
Crawford added five rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 47 minutes of action. He's scored 50 points over the past two games, as he's getting a ton of run with Atlanta so depleted by injuries. He's definitely opening eyes for those in keeper leagues.

Don't look for him to play 47 mins per game every night. Jamal Crawford and Jeff Teague will still be the first guys off the bench.

A young guy who can score for a buck though? Not bad....I also have Jamal for what it's worth.

This just got posted about Noah too. I'm glad I overpaid a little for him...there weren't many other good C eligible guys left at the time.

Noah came through with 16 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists during the Bulls' 109-90 win over the Raptors on Tuesday.
Spin:
Noah went 6-of-13 from the field, also adding a steal and a block in 40 minutes of playing time. He's going to be an absolute fantasy monster this year, so feel free to reach for him.
