  2. Just created a yahoo league, PM me your emails if you want in. I know a league was talked about before but it seems to have died out. As far as rosters go Ill let you all 100% choose that. My friends and I are in our 10th season and we go all out including individual defensive players but i know a lot of people dont like that. Just let me know whether you want standard or PPR and we will go with majority. 1. Dalton26 2. biteoftheapple 3. Crimson and Cream 4. WayneFleekHoosier 5. btownbanner6 6. IUsafety 7. Str8hoosiers 8.

    I had it 3-2 Jones but wouldn’t have argued much if someone said 3-2 Santos. At the end of the day if it’s close you gotta make the champ submit or knock him/her out to take his/her belt. Santos is tough as nails tho. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Santos knee looked ugly. Dudes probably got a torn acl or something and he just keeps going. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Askren was out!! I’m not an Askren fan by any means, but I’d run that one back. Masvidal just kinda flailed in the air and caught him. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I’m good with it. I think he can be a Reddick/Korver lite player.

    I don’t really care who Miami picks up. We’re in cap hell and I think this is a down draft. Really just want to see where Romeo ends up. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Congrats Stromboli, don’t let these guys give you too much of a hard time. Lol Your permissions should be all set now, just got you switched over
  10. I think think thats the key. Now he doesnt have to go on recruiting trips and deal with all that stuff almost year round.
  11. Season kicks off TONIGHT!!! I think the Panthers are going to put a hurt on the Bronco's tonight.
  12. NBA Comparison: Tony Mitchell/Noah Vonleh Strengths: Excellent wingspan (7’2.5”) for his size ... Possesses the body control to get to and finish at the rim ... Very capable of making an impact off of straight-line drives ... Has an NBA-ready frame ... Surprising lateral speed for a player with as much muscle mass as he shows ... Defensive potential is his calling card ... Already shows the signs of being a high-level defender ... Can guard multiple positions on the court ... Length could allow him to develop into a small-ball big in the future ... Light on his feet on the perimeter ... Disruptive defender, jumps passing lanes whenever he sees the opportunity ... Was an interior presence defensively, especially as the weak side defender ... Able to stay on the floor and block shots as a perimeter defender due to excellent reach ... Possesses nice defensive instincts ... Closes out well and under control on shooters ... Flashed solid footwork understanding on the offensive end ... Will make open or uncontested threes ... Shot has a nice rotation and backspin on it, hits the rim softly ... Sees and makes the extra pass ... Monster on the offensive boards ... Can keep possessions alive with rebounds and will convert second-chance opportunities into baskets ...Very good cutter off the ball ... Good at cutting back door. Looks for defender to turn head and then makes his baseline move to the lane ... Ally oop threat, likely to make plenty of highlight plays on lob passes ... His offensive numbers are misleading as he actually has very good potential as a shooter, if he can hone his ability in using deception to create looks ... Weaknesses: No real defined role offensively yet ... A little bit stiff in his movements and running the floor ... Thick legs ... Doesn't always exhibit an ideal level of intensity ... Needs to work on his ability to create shots ... Shot mechanics need some fine tuning as he has a bit of a slow release and seems to telegraph his shot too often ... His motion gets sped up if a defender is too close to him ... Shoots with minimal arc and not much rotation ... Only shot 52 percent from the free throw line ... Is not a strong ball handler, dribbles high and away from body ... Can be very loose with the ball, especially with his off hand ... Does not create his own offense ... Won’t be an instant facilitator at the next level ... Has trouble recognizing the open player as a playmaker … His effort was very up-and-down during his stint at Indiana ... While he has the tools to become a quality defender, was slow at times reacting on defense ... Late-bloomer so his basketball IQ needs some catching up ... Post skills are extremely raw and in need of refinement ... While he shows solid attributes and potential as a rebounder, remains extremely unproven having averaged 2.6 and 5.4 rebounds per game over his FR and SO seasons ... Is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in late January, which could cloud his draft stock ... Outlook: Hoping to capitalize on the substantial internet hype that he had generated, Anunoby entered the 2017 draft and signed with an agent, despite a disappointing season in which he suffered a torn ACL ... After shutting down Kentucky freshman Jamal Murray in the Round of 32 in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, Anunoby became a hot name and one to watch for in the 2017 draft class ... His numbers saw an uptick, but with his struggles in getting clean looks, his game didn’t change much before he ultimately went down with an injury ... Had Tom Crean kept his job at IU, Anunoby likely would be back in Bloomington, IN ... However, with him being young for his class (won’t turn 20 until September) and possessing the body and athletic profile that he does, he certainly possesses a lot of intrigue to teams ... A bit of a tweener as he lacks a polished skill set, especially offensively at either forward position ... At this point he's a project, coming off a major injury ... With proper development, Anunoby could become a valued asset in the modern NBA game ... Notes: Averaged 25 mpg, 11.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 56.3 FT%, 31.1 3P%, 55.7 FG% in 16 games as a sophomore ... Measured 6'6.5 without shoes, 243 lbs, 7'2.5 wingspan, and a 8'10.5 standing reach in the summer of 2016 ... Brandon Jefferson 5/8/17 http://www.nbadraft.net/players/og-anunoby

    I'm fine with them not getting any of these guys. The top of the market this year has been extremely overpaid.

    Those reports really only started coming today, and a few tweets on twitter doesnt really count as "their fans" bashing Harper. Every fan base has a few fans like that, but Phillies fans havent been that bad towards Harper compared to a lot of other fan bases. Ironically Yankees fans are about the only ones aside from the Phillies that havent been at his throat all offseason.

    Not really. Its a front loaded contract, his salary in those years wont be that bad at all. Especially with the way payrolls and contracts are going to continue to go up.

    Team Chemistry Issues?

    Hopefully we are in a situation where we can boot them this off season. I'm not even going to pretend that I have a good enough grasp on the APR stuff to know whether we will be or not.
