You were awesome after our trade of Amare and Deng for Lebron. Had you started your win streak one week earlier, you would have made the playoffs


gosh damn!!!! amare AND deng for lbj?!?! lbj is good but if im getting amare and deng for him then damn...peace out lebron. that was a steal


I think you're the first to think it that way. Many saw it as a dumb or strongly questionable trade. At the time, The King was averaging 25/6. Amare had around 24/10 and Deng had 20/10. I'd say it was a steal.


dumb?? questionable??? more than a steal..a mass rape-age. someone offers me amare and deng for lbj i accept in a heartbeat. dont expect me to offer 2 beasts for 1 beast this season guys :wink:



It was the usual ramblings tossers that started whining that I got a steal in Lebron, as if it was anything to do with them anyway.

Amare was not producing much early last season and I started trying to trade him early on. By the time me and xbay made that trade Amare was on fire, as was Den. I already another two good Centers and wanted to up my assists just a bit and Lebron did that for me. My rebounds didn't suffer at all as I was still best in the league so it was a good trade for me too. Win-Win it was

I didn't say anything about the trade. In any trade between two users, both have to agree to it. If they do, it's nobody else's business.

not necessarily...sometimes a trade is heavily in favor of one person and that screws up the competition. thats why yahoo allows the chance to veto. ive also seen times when money was on the line n teams combined their best players on one team just to wi the money and split it in the end.

That's different. If it's a friendly league, there's no reason to control anything. If it's really competitive, with money on the line or other kind of bets, then yeah. It definitely would need some kind of control by the rest of the users.

That's right, in a friendly league like ours, there should be no interference with trades between people. The whole purpose of trading is to try to get better team anyway

Yeah, but it's like in real life. If both sides agree to it, why not?. It's different if there's something else on the line. In that case, it can be considered a fraud... but if not, I assume both sides of the trade want to improve.

I kind of agree with eman here. I know from seasons where I used to do fantasy hoops that one thing I'd always do at the beginning of seasons was make shitloads of trade offers and try to fleece the newbies. Uninformed people being allowed to trade can take the fun out of it.

You have to respect everyone's free will to make their own decisions. It's like not allowing a trade to happen in the nba because a few teams think it's unfair. A crock

True... but everybody can do that, too. It's not like you have an unfair advantage.

yeah but say it was a maxiell for amare trade. everyone knows its unfair but theres no one to veto it. now the person in 1st place who drafted a good team and made fair trades/ FA acquisitions will go to second place cuz some other guy who was probably 1 game away from making the playoffs moves into first place due to an unfair trade. when you take away competetion you take away the fun.

There have been some lopsided trades in nba history! What, does David Stern now have the right to veto the trade and reject it! No!
