Hey everyone, we started this birthday list deal, and we did it for Jan and Feb. And during the off-season we're going to make each month a team, and we'll vote on which teams would win in a tournament. So that's the *real* reason why I've been doing these each month. Or maybe we'll do that NEXT off-season or during the Christmas break or something. The point is -- these are super duper important.
And more than just for us, they are super duper important because they are the birthdays of some of our favorite players. Clearly March is a great month.

So far this fictional tournament is something I'd love to watch -- and we're only three teams into the contest . . . not every squad is going to have both talent and depth. Perhaps after every round the team that advances (via fan votes here) will get to pick up ONE player from the team they defeated. Because Team Stockton (March) is a solid back to the basket guy away from dominating . . . and Team Wheezie (January) has no passers, but have shotblocking down. I kind of want to release all of the rosters now . . . but you guys will just have to wait till next month.
