Harden #1 and Wade #25 in Top Guards
« on: November 15, 2012, 02:32:23 PM »
Using the average fantasy points per game methodology from the NBA Futures scoring system, the best guard this season has been James Harden.  He has benefited from a change of scenery that brought him a full-time starting role.  It is early in the season so be warned about small sample sizes, but we are about 10% through and there are certainly some surprises.  Who is most surprisng to you?  Who do you expect to regress?  Who do you expect to be on this list at the end of the year?

  • OUDAN: Gonna make it interesting
    Today at 01:58:09 PM
  • OUDAN: First league here like that, That I know of
    Today at 01:58:14 PM
  • Brent: We need to get away from doing escalating contracts.  Real life baseball doesn't have a cap so they can do that, we have a cap so it does not make sense.  We should go with averaged salary across life of contract to include option years.
    Today at 01:58:34 PM
  • OUDAN: I actually see your point there Brent
    Today at 01:59:02 PM
  • sandman: Brent responded. Escalating contracts are excellent
    Today at 01:59:34 PM
  • sandman: Given the fact that you can see every single player
    Today at 01:59:53 PM
  • sandman: Pretty dang sweet man
    Today at 02:00:07 PM
  • sandman: We so the same thing in LOR
    Today at 02:00:36 PM
  • sandman: I see jpsprague lurking who will he take?  Any ideas....
    Today at 02:01:13 PM
  • Brent: Not sweet at all.  We have a cap.  Real life baseball teams don't have a cap.  So, we can have a salary of $300M in 2020?  Is that going to be allowed?
    Today at 02:01:39 PM
  • Brent: Yeah, and it is dumb there too.
    Today at 02:01:54 PM
  • sandman: No you can't go over man
    Today at 02:03:28 PM
  • kylerap: Headley to the Yankees- RL trade
    Today at 02:03:36 PM
  • Brent: Okay, I might rethink whether or not I will do BLB.
    Today at 02:05:24 PM
  • Brent: Y'all are putting a $125M salary cap on contracts that are designed for an uncapped league.  There is some logic missing here.
    Today at 02:06:40 PM
  • kylerap: I do see his point ^
    Today at 02:07:02 PM
  • sandman: Thats your call bro. If you can't see your cap 5 yrs in advance when its on the screen and adjust I cant help you there man
    Today at 02:07:18 PM
  • sandman: Its no different than any other league that starts out
    Today at 02:07:34 PM
  • Vollmernator: Sand how will the cap go up each year
    Today at 02:08:29 PM
  • sandman: Except some contracts escalate. Either don't pick that player or pick him. You still see his contract all the way out
    Today at 02:08:33 PM
  • Brent: Yes it is different.  NBA and NFL both have salary caps.
    Today at 02:08:50 PM
  • sandman: NBA goes over the cap all the time
    Today at 02:09:13 PM
  • sandman: Nets and Heat were 30m over the cap when LOR started
    Today at 02:09:33 PM
  • Brent: It's not Vollmeter.  We have a $125M cap.  so you can get maybe 2 good players b/c if you have more than that their escalated contracts in year 3-5 will put any team over $125M.
    Today at 02:09:41 PM
  • Vollmernator: Just worried I won't have enough in the future for my players
    Today at 02:09:48 PM
  • sandman: Your just over thinking it man. Try it first before you diss it
    Today at 02:09:58 PM
  • sandman: Brent that is so incorrect. Did you know some players contracts go down?
    Today at 02:10:20 PM
  • sandman: Did you know that some are flat deals
    Today at 02:10:30 PM
  • sandman: Did you know that 65% of MLB players contracts are within 3% of the year before
    Today at 02:10:48 PM
  • Brent: Yeah and so were the Heat in NBA Futures and Colby actually made the Heat have a lower cap b/c of that.  3 players contracts equalled $60M and the cap was $60M.  I know a thing or two about dealing with those cards as I won the league last year.
    Today at 02:10:56 PM
  • sandman: This is my 3rd league like this, I guarantee you it works bro
    Today at 02:11:31 PM
  • Brent: Don't get defensive bro when I called you out on the flawed logic of the league.
    Today at 02:11:37 PM
  • Vollmernator: I was only planning on get 2 really good pricy players
    Today at 02:11:37 PM
  • sandman: Have some faith
    Today at 02:11:53 PM
  • Brent: It's all good.  I'll win this league.  I ain't worried.
    Today at 02:12:13 PM
  • sandman: wow! flawed logic.
