Ron - On behalf of the entire family, I'd like to thank you for starting this game and continuing it even after your guy was traded away. You're one of us now, you know, and we're glad you stuck around. :)

Thanks again!
I agree, Great job!
It was fun. :D

I may start a Playoff Prediction Game for KFs, here in this Fantasy area.
(For all NBA Playoff games in all rounds, until the finals series)

Would you be interested in that?
(An all-NBA game, predicting game results and series results, w/o the Kings this season, I'm afraid... :oops:)
