Vance,

I'm still thinking winning record. Add a 60%+ efg long-range player and almost 200 triples to your tests. I could start a lineup with 75%+ ast%; have D over 70, oreb% of 44% and dreb% of 105.4% with over 11% stl% and close to 10% blk%. May also keep my foul rate close to .065. Obviously I'll be better off to start either Bogues or Love but NOT both. With my ast% I will be very surprised if I don't get Wilt close to 55% efg.

My last big question now is deciding on what season of McMillan to use. Torn between the 95D lower ast% with a handful of threes versus one of the insane ast%, respectable D, no range seasons. Will also likely rotate between Love and Outlaw depending on how well my opponent boards. 50ppg for Wilt is NOT dead, because I may opt to leave some Love minutes on the table because of the weak D.

My testing so far shows Wilt at between 37 and 44 points per game which is impressive. Who's is the 60% EFG long range bomber with almost 200 made triples . . . that has me worried a bit.   I don't see any individual players with close to 200 3s made that is less than our 4 million dollar cap for undrafted players.

My starting teams teams assist number is over 93% So in this senario what is more likely to happen A) Wilt shoots amost 55% from the field or B) Ewing shoots almost 60% from the field?

I agree that your fouls are very low and that you teams rebounding is better than I thought it would be.

Steve Novak makes about 165 3's @ 47%  for around 2.5 mil.

Okay 98average why did you take Alonzo Mourning over Patrick Ewing to pair with Moses? I was thinking that with Moses and Ewing you would get 40 mpg of them with the same basic inside game that you get for 34 minutes a game with Mourning. Just wondering.

Sry, missing a comma in there somewhere, 3 of my 5 added players combine for 200 made threes, one of them shot in excess of 300 attempts at over 40% and his D is over 50 and efg over 60. I actually used Novak in my OL where I got Wilt to 50.4ppg, (he was my ONLY guy besides Wilt with over 13.7 usage) but I also had two 90D Rodman's on that squad, clearly I can't carry another sub-30 D player on this team, no matter how many threes he made or how high his efg is.

Sets of 10 (5h/5a) v. Vance's Hindsight 20/20: Wilt ave: 47.1; 42.9; 48.4; 45.7. That's with me using Love 32mpg.

Key is to actually add the team to a league, then set pace to uptempo, with aggressive foul setting and never clear the bench. The above is with Moses on him and he still went 60+ 4-5 times, Wilt will get REAL fat off of teams with foul monsters and/or weak defenders. I also can put upwards of 500 RL made threes on the court, so a -2 is welcomed.

Based on my math Wilt should get in the neighborhood of 44% of my FGA's, so 40-45 fga/g is well within the range I'm expecting.

Wow this has been lame so far, 2 weeks of basicly nothing.
8/3/2013 12:31 AM
I guess that you have already figured out that my squad has more than one foul monster eh? I may still put you near the top of my division draft list pal.

btw doug christe will not be playing unless i have fatigue problems i also have 270 3s

Chris, I'll give predictions when I can see all of the rosters and run the stats. If the playoffs started today I'd have 5 of 6 correct in the ODL West, but only 3 of 6 in the East. At least two teams (including my own) failed because of a lack of assists, which will alter the way I look at things for this league.

Long enough to commit 2-3 fouls.
