Angels, I'm surprised you're not practicing a little more patience. You should know how the routine works by now -- Yahoo takes several games or so for starters and about twice as much for reserves.

I don't think he'll ever get PG eligibility, but GS is running a lot of sets with Iguodala at the top distributing to Klay and Steph coming off screens on the wings. The 11 assists were no fluke, and he can be targeted for late value assists, though expect very low scoring.

Actually, in the past, if you push the issue a little more with Yahoo (e-mail, etc.), they come through quite a bit quicker.

Not if your name is Plumlee and you're clearly the Starting Center on the Phoenix Suns without question. Come on bro, use your head here. Some position updates are beyond obvious.

Even the Suns roster on their web site doesn't list Plumlee as a center. He may very well turn out that way, and gain eligibility. Just don't get hurt falling off that high horse heh

Told you guys Plumlee would get C status and Dragic now listed as PG, SG. All "high horse" apologies are accepted. :-°

I don't think anyone said they wouldn't they just said you needed to be more patient.

I haven't watched any Cleveland or Minnesota games, but a little shocked to see Irving get SG eligibility and Kevin Martin to get SF. But the more the merrier I guess.

Your high horse position was being outraged that Plumlee didn't already have center eligibility when his own team hadn't even called him a center officially and he had played one game there. Even at the time I said:

Expecting him to eventually get center eligibility would have been reasonable. That isn't what you were doing.

EDIT: And for good measure, lo and behold, the Suns website now calls him a C-F.

Not about position updates, but would like to suggest what I think would be a major improvement.

Show the day's live scoring for players on the waiver wire! It's frustrated me for years that while baseball and football show that day's stats for waiver wire players, basketball does not.

How many times do I check my team late in the evening and see yeah so and so had another crappy game, gee, I wonder who on the waiver wire had a hot night?

There's no easy way to find out! Yes I know if I put players on my watch list I can see same day stats... I've done that, but with the limit on the number of players on a watch list and the need to constantly maintain the thing over multiple teams ... ugh.

This is the sort of data-centric improvement I wish Yahoo would pursue. I hoped with the redesign, this long-needed improvement would have been made. Alas it was not. Thanks Guy Smiley for your attention.
