LeBron loses triple-double

It turns out LeBron James did not have a triple-double Wednesday against the Knicks in Madison Square Garden. The NBA reviewed the game and ruled that a rebound given to James with 39.3 seconds remaining should have been credited to Ben Wallace.

That means that LeBron finished the game with nine rebounds and Wallace with two rather than one. A release from the league said: "All NBA games are reviewed to ensure the accuracy of the game statistics."

Yeah, right. David Stern was probably playing against Bron-Bron in his Fantasy league this week.

In any case, Fantasy owners want to know what this means for them. I checked with our crack staff upstairs that takes care of these things and this is what I found out:

  • Every night after games are over, we receive the official stats feed. When we get that feed, the site is updated to reflect the official stats.
  • When the stats come in tonight after the games, they should include LeBron's updated stats. It should be updated at some point this weekend, whenever the change is made in the feed.
  • Fantasy owners in Single and Commissioner leagues  will lose that rebound, and any corresponding bonuses for a triple-double.
  • If a commish in a Commissioner league does not want the stat to change, they can undo it manually. 

Here is what the official rules say about this type of scenario:

Statistics Corrections (Single Leagues)

Your league's web site will be updated to reflect official NBA statistics corrections that occur up to seven days after the game has been completed. For example, for a Saturday game, the official scoring change would have to be made by the following Saturday to be included in our statistics. If the change is made any later, it will not be included in our statistics and your official Fantasy scoring will be based on the original statistic.

 

Statistics Corrections (Commissioner Leagues)

Your league's web site will be updated to reflect official NBA statistics corrections that occur up to seven days after the game has been completed. For example, for a Saturday game, the official scoring change would have to be made by the following Saturday to be included in our statistics. If the change is made any later, it will not be included in our statistics and your official Fantasy scoring will be based on the original statistic.

LeBron loses triple-double

So Bron Bron loses a triple double. He'll get over it......Im pretty sure he will get a few more over his career.

Yeah, right. David Stern was probably playing against Bron-Bron in his Fantasy league this week.Now that would be strange....but funny to a point.
