Team TOPH Week 5

This was for sure a wild week for Team TOPH.  It was clearly not my best week, logging over 100 minutes more than the opponent and only winning 5-3.  But, a win's a win and at this point I'll take it, giving me some momentum for next week when the real changes take place.

It was a busy, busy week for the GM.  It took three days of negotiating, but a trade was pulled off in the end, and I think I'm going to like it.

Blockbuster Trade in Starzz02:
Team Players Receives: David Lee, Russell Westbrook, and Danilo Gallinari
Team TOPH Receives: Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and Jason Terry

I'm set with rebounds, but I needed more 3's.  Between Love and Terry, I should be alright.  Everything else was essentially a wash.  Plus, I needed to do something.  Things weren't going well, the mood in the locker room was pretty crappy, and a shakeup was certainly in order.  We'll see how it works out.

Weekly Transactions:
- Trade Mentioned Above
- Added Leandro Barbosa, Dropped Anthony Morrow
- Added O.J. Mayo, Dropped Leandro Barbosa
- Added Luke Ridnour, Dropped Eric Gordon (Worst $29 I've Ever Spent)
- Added Jodie Meeks, Dropped Luke Ridnour
- Added Jordan Farmar, Dropped Jodie Meeks

It really was a busy week.  Had to piece together some form of a team.

Week: 5-3
Season: 16-23-1 (Fifth Place in Western Conference, Seventh Place in League)
17.5 Games Back of First in Conference, 6 Games Back of a Playoff Spot


  1. bro do you even have any of your original players left? it seems like you literally barged into the locker room in an angry fit of rage and just fired everyone. and then replaced them with jordan farmar

  2. umm duncan, hibbert, felton, bynum, ellis, and ibaka are the only originals left. you gotta do what you gotta do.
