Wade finally getting his act together a bit does help. The TO thing is kinda cool, considering I've also played the most games, though not by a big margin. I drafted with the oft-ignored TO value in mind (Horford, Millsap, Terry, Allen, Battier) so its good to see some results there. I fear however, that my %% values will continue to be too weirdly skewed up (FG%) and down (FT%) for this team to be truly formidable. Good thing this is just a qualifying heat (Top 3) and no extra credit is given for actually winning. I'm cautiously optimistic I can ride this out to a Top 3 finish, though I see some teams out there that could rise up and make things interesting.
On a different note, I'm wondering how an apparently likely NBA lockout impacts next-season's Octagon. We should have an "early-offseason" discussion to get ahead of the situation and decide how we'd collectively prefer to deal with it. i.e. play it out if a season starts before Jan. 1; play it out if a regular season starts anytime; etc. We didn't exactly build a "collective-bargaining" contingency into our voluminous league rules!
