I guess this is sort of state of my team/league post.
So sometimes it pays off to trade away good keeper quality players for 1. When I traded basically Roy, Ellis, and Stoudemire for Durant, I was really looking for next year. I had a lot of talent on my roster but the pieces weren't fitting and was 14 games under .500. Now I'm 7 games under .500 but within a game of Jim for the 6th seed. It looks to be a three-way battle for that 6th seed with Yilun also in the mix. Of course, my team was fortunate to have Blatche prior to the Washington trades. On the other hand, after losing to my team during the week of the trade, ggs has put together a very nice win streak, going a very impressive 30-14-1, so maybe making the trade wasn't the best for my team.
My focus now is to get a win against Nene this week. Have to give him kudos for drafting Curry in the 5th. I really thought the Golden State situation was going to work against him this year, but the kid has been outstanding, though I did get the 2nd best rookie in Evans. I think both Nene and ggs have a good shot during the playoffs, even though bleedtheblack has a substantial lead. A lot will depend on how Paul comes back to finish out the season as bleedtoblack has remained well in first without him.
Back to my team, I might have a really good future keeper core if I stick with Durant, Evans, Blatche, Gallinari, and A. Randolph (homer pick). Not really sure what I'll do when that time comes. as I could always trade a young'un for a vet. (Note to Fenris: I'm thinking about it but leaning towards not accepting that trade offer.) By the way, trade deadline coming up folks.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!
