Started From the Bottom

(1/31 - 9:00am) Roster move #1:
Well you can drop Wroten and Glen Davis and add Boris Diaw and Khris Middleton. - Rotoworld Message Board

I am in one Yahoo and one ESPN fantasy basketball league.  In the Yahoo league, I am currently in 5th place, 8 games back of 1st place in my division (2nd seed).  But in the ESPN league, which I was not present for the draft, I am in dead last and have yet to win a week!  Sounds almost impossible, but it is true.  That is where you all come in.  Together, we are going to make this team playoff bound!

Started From the Bottom

With the last pick in a 12 team league, here were the draft results:

12Marc Gasol, Mem C
13Serge Ibaka, OKC PF
36Ty Lawson, Den PG
37Brandon Jennings, Det PG
60J.R. Smith, NY SG
61Ryan Anderson, Nor PF
84Greivis Vasquez, Tor PG
85Jeremy Lin, Hou PG
108Gerald Wallace, Bos SF
109Louis Williams, Atl PG
132Markieff Morris, Pho PF
133Nene , Wsh PF
156Brandan Wright, Dal PF
157Alex Len, Pho C
