Wow. WOW! Unbefreakinglievable. What an incredible finish. This thing went down to the last games. SC jumped from potentially not making the top 6 to 4th overall ON THE FINAL NIGHT OF THE SEASON.
'Tizy was fixin to slip away with the overall win on a huge late season H2H run but was punished on the roto side ON THE FINAL NIGHT OF THE SEASON by the cruel, cruel fantasy gods.
Yeah, it was quite amazing how the chips fell.
in regards to my teams...
In the roto league, I knew I drafted a good team - but aside from all that, it was one of the better seasons I've had in terms of monitoring 'games played'. Finished 5 games under the max, with 815 games played. In roto leagues of the past, that's always been one of the more tasking things to keep tabs on, with a busy work and school schedule and all. I stuck in there though, made a quiet trade in late January (my Ilguaskas/Gibson -for- Ellis/Perkins) which def helped my FG% and STL, and helped when Kev. Martin and Gasol missed games.
As for the H2H league, I'm pretty much embarrased by what happened to my team. Easily one of the most lopsided season's I've ever had in H2H. I won the first 8 weeks of fantasy BB (remember having maybe a 10 game lead on 2nd place), with a Garnett/Boozer/Kaman/Bynum combination really going to work, etc. After losing Bynum for good, Harris for a awhile, and other injuries, it all went downhill. I lost 11 of the next 13 matchups, with essentially the same squad I was winning with earlier in the season... H2H can be frustratinggg.
All in all, I'm happy to be in the league, and am still game for next season. Def one of the most competitive leagues. Greatful, and a little proud, to have grabbed fourth place overall, as I consider all you guys to be really knowledgeable fantasy players. Cool to be in a couple of leagues with Buser as well.
