Nels wins our Experts League!

Posted by Alvin Lai Categories: Disses, H2H, Props, Site Announcements,

Chris Paul Nels from Give Me The Rock is the winner of our 2nd Experts League. He threw a little diss at us in his season recap on his site, but he’s right in saying that having knowledge about the NBA and being good at the fantasy game are two different things. I find most of these industry leagues focus on the draft. I definitely put way more energy in my leagues against family and friends. Funny that Nels writes he hates Chris Paul due to something that happened in another league, but in this league, CP3 was his anchor.

Here is the winning roster:

PG: Chris Paul
SG: Andre Iguodala
G: Monta Ellis
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: Danny Granger
F: Luol Deng
C: Al Horford
C: Nick Collison
Util: Al Thornton
Util: Ben Gordon
Bench: Juan Carlos Navarro
Bench: Daequan Cook
Bench: C.J. Miles

Ron Chow and I shared a team for this league, which is to say most weeks I counted on him to set the line-up, he counted on me, and the line-up never got set right. We missed the playoffs by two games, with a couple of unfortunate Sunday results down the stretch ultimately ruining our winning aspirations. We did win the consolation playoffs, which is to say we were the best loser.

How about the other guys who played under the Dropping Dimes banner? Some guy named Matt Satten finished second. Sarge won the regular season but finished fourth overall. Brandon finished 9th and Dennis Velasco finished tenth.

Thanks to all who participated and enjoy the NBA playoffs.
