but you didn't say anything bad about nate's team
8/11/2012 1:47 PM
Bryant, Howard, Pierce is not a good trio.  U need to pair Kobe with players like Rodman, Wallace, Kidd, etc.

I doubt it.  In the last ODL, the Kobe Bryant, David Robinson, ------- ------- trio only won 34 games.  I'd give u odds that he won't make the playoffs if he's in my division.

it wouldn't be as much fun taking your money as it would be taking malone's. all i can say to you nc, is what billy the kid said when confronted with 15 snarling, low-down, dirty hombre sheriffs: "many a slip twix a cup and a lip," (and he got away).

Hakeem's problem is that his fouls + to's approach 600 every season.... and that is bad. If you surround him with people who don't foul or turn the ball over he can be a force, but he isnt really a Sim friendly force.
 



btw, if you want to see a player whose fouls + turnovers are truly staggering, take a look at a PF on Philadelphia in the late 70's.

Scud do you want to double down on the amount of wins he has compared to my meager squad?

What helps Dream is if you give him what he never had in real life, a strong defensive PG, SG, and SF.

15) ashamael - Kevin Durant, Tyson Chandler, Carlos Boozer,

This has not gone the way I wanted.  2nd three-peat looks doubtful.  I still like the squad... it's just not my type of squad.  If I get the two other players I'm looking at, I'll call myself the favorite.  Of course, if I get the other two players I'm looking at, I'll call myself a cheating bastard because there's no way I get both of them and a strong possibility I get neither.

Here's what I like about my guys:  10.5 usage points already, making my last pair of picks pretty easy to manage with usage.  Durant's '12 season is insane - I cannot wait to use it.  Despite his fantastic efg% , he's still not a reliable guy that gets me easy 2 after easy 2, which I've made no secret is the way I like to build teams.  I passed over Gilmore despite this... but I really wanted to use that new Durant season.  Boozer gives me some of that with elite boards for a guy of his type... but his ****** defense makes me a little uneasy.  Chandler can cover for him, but Chandler's not exactly elite - only above average.  Durant, for that matter, isn't an elite defender and probably won't be able to cover my PG if I draft a defensively weak one.  I'm solid on the defensive boards but a little weak on the offensive ones (I like for my SG to have more than 1.8%... jeez).  I'm okay on assists but don't think I'm gonna break my preferred bottom of 60% cumulative between my starting five unless I get lucky.  My turnovers are atrocious while my fouls are higher than I like.

Harden went way too long without being drafted. I'm just glad someone like Ash or dh didn't get him, I wouldve taken him myself but couldn't find a great way to fit him in.

Chris Paul-Mel Daniels-Troy Murphy was hardly what I was planning in the 1st 3 rounds but I am warming up to them for some suble reasons.


1.) Haven't spent a huge amout of money
2.) Turnovers very low
3.) Have a lot of flexibility for rounds 4 and 5.

Murphy is usually a second round pick. If he had fallen a couple more picks I would've traded Camby and picked him.
