TOs basically act as a form of socialism and reward passive play

They're not completely unrelated. assist/turnover ratio is still a recognized statistic, no?

Anyways I like rule changes that make the league more competitive, not less.

I always hated turnovers, so id vote against.

Slow, check them players i listed. I'd do a two for one or one for one to get Westbrook. Westbrook is my dawg

yeah but it's really only applicable to one position (point guard) and with the neo/o-guard, it's losing importance

that's what i'm doing

re: DATBBL ** Draft Oct 23rd 8 pm CT**


i just like TOs bc it balances things out for guards. if we ditch TOs it'll make guards too valuable & decrease the importance of Fs/Cs. people will be loading up on guards for their flex. i dont wanna play in a league like that.

& i dont see how eliminating a category makes things more competitive. 1 less category to worry about while drafting/trading/making lineup decisions doesn't mean more competitive to me.

ETA: btw it doesnt reward complacency, it penalizes frick ups, which is how it should be.

this isn't fantasy football

this is stat-based competition, not point-based competition. it's impossible for 1 position to become "too valuable"

and they'll get killed in FG%, blocks, and rebounds

big men turn it over more than guards anyway

TOs are a product of aggression, typically. that's a good thing

i dont think giving the ball to the other team is a good thing.

i think its a pretty important stat & to throw it out be some people "just don't like it" would be a bitch-move.

I just don't think it makes sense in fantasy. Turnovers punish a fantasy team for having alot of playmakers who play with the ball in there hands. Why?

we need to figure out a way to make FT% hold more weight to offset the "jumpshooter" effect
