NBA Playoff Chatter
« on: April 09, 2018, 04:30:41 PM »
Same as NHL thread, all NBA action can be discussed here.

Can't really talk matchups just yet with the crazy amount of possibilities still remaining. If OKC somehow misses the playoffs all together it will be a huge shocker (Western conference has been crazier than ever this year).

In the east, I really hope Raps don't end up playing Wizards as it will be hard to cheer for them while also wanting Wall/Beal to advance. Despite the poor record since Wall's return I actually like Wizards to make some noise and if they do end up playing Raps I would not be totally shocked to see them win, though ideally they finish 7th and play a banged up Boston team (which is still not an easy out).

Finals Prediction: Rockets over Cavs in 7

:DEN-NBA: vs :MIN-NBA: Wed to decide final spot should be a great game to watch. Seedings still in flux with 2 days to go.

Lebron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Russell Westbrook your top performers for round 1. No real surprise here but too bad only Lebron is advancing (and what could have easily turned out to be his 1st ever 1st round exit).

2nd round had some exciting games but really all 4 teams advanced in dominating fashion not a single game 6. Raps getting swept was a shocker, though I never expected them to win the series- Lebron has their number every year.

Davis, Green and Lebron accumulated bonus points

Yeah you were the front runner so far but had a tough round losing everyone but Stamkos. Last 2 sounds should still be interesting, we have WillyWonka as a darkhorse if we get Rockets/Celtics finals

No surprise GS wins again, had Paul not been injured a few games in the last series could have been different story. Lebron had arguably the best playoff performance ever in terms of stats, and with all the bonus points he got me he was the MVP of our league (Ovechkin is very close 2nd). I'd say there is a good chance Lebron leave CLE again.

Bonuses and all games are now calculated and with less than 3 points separating 1st and 2nd I will need to review before officially announcing the champ. Stay tuned for 1 last PM.

The NBA is kind of a joke league at the moment... 4 straight years of the same teams in the finals? Not gonna lie, I didn't watch a single minute of the series, and from the ratings put out to the public, I wasn't the only one!

It'll be hilarious when Lebron leaves CLE again this summer, to see them all burn his jersey again. Silly people.

Thoughts on where Lebron will sign this off-season....? Now there's something that's at least interesting in terms of the NBA, haha.

  • Flash: Regardless, your league, so you need to decide what’s in the best interest of the league.  Brent, like many members, is a veteran fantasy player and it seems like he has proposed something that is in the best interest of all involved.  I wish you well.
    Yesterday at 08:24:59 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Yes, this is a tricky one.  That's why it's so important to be near consensus and incorporate everyone's ideas.  The league in year's past was determined what was best for one owner.
    Yesterday at 08:27:26 PM
  • Brent: I'm only keeping 12 players out of 250.
    Yesterday at 08:33:41 PM
  • kidd5jersey: With this format, you get to keep everyone left over so you at least have a minors to work with
    Yesterday at 08:34:46 PM
  • kidd5jersey: You can always 'buy out' Posey since you're a new owner to the team.
    Yesterday at 08:35:36 PM
  • Brent: That's the point, I don't want them.  I'll build the team from the ground up with ththe exception of the 12.
    Yesterday at 08:44:55 PM
  • Flash: Astros wouldn’t get to keep everyone leftover, that would defeat the purpose.  All the undrafted players would go into free agency.
    Yesterday at 08:48:20 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Ok, I will drop all the minors players
    Yesterday at 08:49:00 PM

  • kidd5jersey: The Houston Talent draft should not take too much time
    Yesterday at 08:50:25 PM
  • Brent: It's not all minors.  I'm keeping a 6.  6 MLB and 6 Minors, that's my 12.
    Yesterday at 09:01:50 PM
  • Flash: FYI:  In the WCB2 draft, I listed all the available MLB players with their contracts and all the MiLB players with their (P-n/a)s in a separate thread and crossed them out as they were picked.  Made it a lot easier for everyone--they could review who's available and what the cost of each player was.  Just an idea....
    Yesterday at 09:46:59 PM
  • Brent: That's how I would do it.
    Yesterday at 09:57:26 PM
  • kidd5jersey: MEMBERS OF ARMCHAIR:  Please check your PM with initial update for the Houston Competitive Draft.
    Yesterday at 10:19:22 PM
  • Vik: Late to the party but I've kept up with what's been going on overall seems like fair decision, good work guys! My quick 2 cents though- wouldnt' it make sense to allow Brent to keep more minors? Also we should allow catchers to finish rest of weekend but pause rest of FA until after draft
    Yesterday at 11:59:51 PM
  • Brent: I don't want to keep more minors.  I'd prefer they be offered up to everyone since they had been hoarded.

  • kidd5jersey: FanTrax is not correct for HOU but it makes no point to add back to HOU just to move them
    Today at 12:03:15 AM
  • kidd5jersey: I'm still scrolling through every conversation I had going back to December on Houston.  Making sure I didn't miss anything.  I also dug deep in the archives to make sure contracts are correct

    Today at 12:06:23 AM
  • kidd5jersey: You want to double check the roster itself?  I used the exact contracts Chris doled out
    Today at 12:07:32 AM
  • Vik: I figured minors 6 of your choosing and X more but some sort of restriction on these not exactly sure on how. Just seems with such deep minor system keeping some lower end specs may be benefical
    Today at 12:07:34 AM
  • Brent: I'm not sure where you updated the roster/contracts, but I can send you the spreadsheet from 19Dec.  It has everyone on it.
