Trade gets vetoed. Player responses below:
Commissioner: I admit I AM ONE OF THEM. This is my opinion: Ibaka is a top 20 player in fantasy (ranked 17th overall right now) - He carries teams in BLKs (which is probably the scarcest category), has fantastic percentages, is one of 11 players who is averaging a PTS-REB double-double, and doesn't get a lot of TOs. He's a fantastic fantasy player who is producing 2nd round value. In my mind, if someone is trading Ibaka, he better be getting a player of similar or close value in return, OR getting multiple players who cumulatively create similar value. Turner and Favors, who are solid players, are ranked in the top 80 right now. Two top-80 players for one top-20 player doesn't seem fair to me. I have no problem with Player A trying to strengthen his 1st place team, I just would expect him to give up MORE value to get value. He isn't trading any of his TOP 3 players for Player B's best player.
Player 1:Its probably being vetoed for your own good. I think youre selling your best player too low. You can do better than favors/turner dont ya think?
Player 2: I do what I want with my vote.
