Yeah, rage quit first game, 2nd game I lost in the final few seconds, 3rd game rage quit and Ring in the middle. Penny went off and clamped down everyone. The 2nd game had 20 points and 17 assists but unfortunately lost. But the Penny/KG combo was deadly. Plus the Morris brothers taking whatever they could get with assists from Penny was quite fun, lol.
Must use players drafted in the 90s - 1PD, 5 rubies
Bimbo has a nice shot
3 games, 3 wins. trying to fulfill the “win the weekend” agenda
saw the ring after my second win but missed it. I always go middle, then left, and it was on the right
Payed off once again that I finished the galactic spotlight. PD Olowokandi at C was a problem for my opponents. Most times he went against Ruby Ilgauskas, sometimes even Saph KG or Saph Mutombo. Lost only one game that went to the wire and he had Olowokandi as well (props to him btw he was pretty good and deserved the win).
For me it takes longer and longer to get the ring. Havent seen it in the middle for ages I feel. What made my day is that I got the ring against an opp that tried to stall me, took all his timeouts, paused all the way through and finally quit in the 4th.
@inspectorcat Dont you always start middle and can only pick one side afterwards?
Not sure about always start middle, I believe you can pick any of the 3
I was saying I never go to the right
Payton, Vince, Posey, Stephen Jackson, PD Kandi. Off the bench Bimbo and some sapphire bums. Won 2 games, got the ring on the right after the second win.
2 more games and the ring is mine!
Mutombo is a beast, look at his stats:
those are from the game number 4. stubborn opponent, did not want to quit
game #5 was vs a decent opponent, with Tim Thomas as the main star (solid choice, btw) - fortunately, Thomas shot something like 1 for 3 from deep (maybe lost his aim a little bit); my Mutombo blocked his twice in a row, threw an outlet pass, I dunked on the fastbreak, and this was the last straw for my opponent; he quit at 18-10 or something
Ok, who’s running with what this week?
Eaton and Draymond
Used OOP Green, OOP Horford, deng (14+ HOF badges), Thurl, and Kaminsky. Ring on left after first game.
Loved that they allowed us to use Diamonds finally after giving us so many good options.
Had OOP Luke Walton and OOP Draymond to try out in limited. Went with Luke first because on Draymond I would have had to add handles for days. Was ok but expected a bit more tbh. I ran this lineup:
How is Luke?
As I said just ok but expected little more. Only have a small sample size bc only played 2 games with him. His shot is better than Draymonds and he got HOF limitless. Defensively he did not feel great. First game he got locked by opp Draymond pretty good. Since I got him for around 6k I will keep him and play little more with him.
6K is a great price for him. I agree that expected much more from him. Shot not bad (not great either) but he seems really slow moving the ball and not great defensively. I initially thought I was going to use him for limited but changes to Green after using him offline in a few games.
Got the ring third game in the middle. Collison was low-key my MVP, no one wanted to guard him on the pick and pop. Ran the J Kidd / K-Mart duo off the bench in case I ran into sweats that refuse to quit.
HOF badge from the pack was Hyperdrive
Took me maybe 20 wins. And all sweats. No one quits these days it feels like. Almost like they’re letting you get up by 20 plus and hoping you’ll get bored.
Right? If I get down 6 in limited I just quit and rematch. No need to gatekeep anyone from a ring for 25 minutes.
I either quit when I’m down 10 or at end of first quarter if I’m losing and I know it’s going to be the same back and forth all game.
It is just a theory but in weeks where you can use higher tier cards games tend to go longer or even to the very end. People think they still got a shot even if trailing and maybe feel more comfortable with the cards.
Games are sweatier and closer bc the quality of cards is pretty equal. Everybody has some decent PD, Opals, Diamonds by now. But not everbody has the gems from lower tiers which can make a big difference.
