Opponent trades away: Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony
Would you do it? I'm currently on a horrible slide as of late losing, I believe, the last 5 match ups by wide margins. I was in third, but I slid to ninth and I'm 70-81-3. Here's the rest of my squad...
Brandon Roy, John Salmons, Hedo Turkoglu, Al Horford, Shaq, Grant Hill, Hakim Warrick, Rudy Fernandez, Nenad Krstic, Ryan Gomes, Jason Terry, Gerald Wallace.
xbay, this week is almost over, as games end tomorrow, because it is the allstar break. I haven't checked stats yet, I have been real busy, but I'll try to check tham and get back to you over the next eight hours or so.
You lost AJefferson and that will hit you hard. Your rebounding, as I remember it, was pretty good, but now could be in need without Jefferson. Check the stats and pay particular attention to the rebounds and just make sure you aren't losing much at all in this category and by that I mean, if you are losing out in rebounding, be by no more than 1 rebound a game total with these two pairs of players.
Carmelo seems like he is back for the rest of the season and is fully healled, therefore I'd say he will produce more accross the board than Young, maybe by alot too. The only thing is that Kobe has started stepping up and having big games since Bynum went down and that might continue. Pierce has also been big the last few games, but he likely won't produce as much as Kobe from now to the end of the season. Have a look at all the stats of both pairs of players combined, compare them and make sure you are winning most categories and not losing in any by a big margin. Also look at the league stats (totals) and see which stats are your worst and best and make sure you don't los out in any category where other teams are close to you, as that will make a big difference in matchups as you might go from winning a category by a bit, to losing it by a bit.
At first look it looks like you win out by a fair bit
