All right, so the official decision is to stick with it as "points made" instead of %.


Booo :-X

The low-brow NBA fans in my circle of friends like scoring and lots of it.  They don't care if someone's shooting percentage is 30% if he's scoring 50 points a night.   
Heathens.

Anyway, there a total duplication between FG Made and Total Points as you'd initially think.  Sure, they are very closely linked, but if you use the FT Made and 3PT category listings to your advantage, you can make up for a weak FG scorer or two.
My small lineup is already leaning this way.  Go Q!

It will make the league a bit different and hey - if we all hate it then we will learn to never never never try it again. 
Whoever wins won't hate it no matter how the stats are collected.  Hopefully that's me. :-*

Click me for good news for the bug

Bogut, a rookie and the second center I selected should be moving to PF.  He has center eligibility though.  So his minutes should increase and there's less pressure on him now.  Booyah!

Did everybody catch that there is no longer an Injured List for the NBA?

Yep:
League Notes:
• The NBA has announced that it will no longer utilize an Injured List (IL). As a result, the IL option has been removed from the fantasy game. If you wish to replace an injured player in your starting lineup, you must either place him on your bench or drop him to waivers.


Now I'm more irritated than before.  I picked up A. Stoudemire in the draft when I did because he was fairly high on the yahoo rankings.  With guys not being present to draft I had to take him when I did or he would have gone to one of the absentee drafters.  Now this happens.   ::)

Time to set those rosters and prepare for the thuggery to commence!   ;)

What kind of lame ass opening night is this?  I've got one player playing on opening night - full-slate tomorrow though.

Oh-ho-ho!

Andrew Bogut might be for real.

13 points
9 rebounds
1 assist
3 blocks

Yeah, I'll take that from a rookie :)

5th place so far for me, with only one player playing tonight - not too bad.  I think.

Yep, 7th is good for one guy for sure.  I don't think I'll be making any wholesale roster changes too quickly yet :P  A little annoyed that Boozer is hurt right now.

Your one guy did better than mine I guess since I'm only in 9th place... 

The worst part is with my "skill" at Fantasy Basketball, 9th is as high as I might get all year.  :'(
