Thx nate. Nate I'm way to lazy to look at old draft orders and this is only my second ODL, so I don't know who's who or what's what. I have a game within a game I like to play, I like to put somewhat obscure players on the AS list. My latest achivment was putting Terry Cummings on the DDL AS list. Also I see a great deal of discussion about eFG% drafted, I have alot of leagues where I draft a 48%FG and turn them into a 51-52%FG player using a strong assist mechinism. What you missed about J Smith is his +150ast% which is there to help feed KD. I want KD to shoot over 60%.  I do hunt for players that are good but unpopular at the time on WIS, this really keeps me from having to rework my intended roster 10 times. I've had these players written down since picking KD and they were all there for me. Look at my 90def's PG/SF/C, now think about how this distribution will effect my ablity to DT players. My DT's will work just fine. Finally I have developed stratagies for dealing with the TO's & PF's, they are quite good at holding my teams to league average and that's all I need.  It is weird building teams with less popular players, I'm usually think I just built the league ***** and it only took a month. lol

"Fight your enemy where he's not". I don't try to win the battle for boards in the paint, I try to beat my opponent in mid & perimeter boards. In leagues with really high 3pta I see a great deal more boards going to my SF & guards. This is where KD, Rondo & Smith are valuble. The  team looks good to me, it may work, we'll see.

Sorry to those of you who see "You are blocking the author of this post, smokey57." This one is just too ripe. I have a game within a game I like to play as well.

This is the most insane quote yet.  Of course since I am now blocking too, who know what stupidity I has missed out on.

Thanks guys for the feedback and thanks to Vance for teaching me how to write a proper eval with all of his previous work in the DH$52. As we close out these next few rounds we hope to get into the point/counter-point theme a little more, plus there will be room for that with our final takes on each squad.

Also, thanks to ash for adding his own input, it's always helpful to see what someone with your track record thinks about the teams as they are being built.
