Well done analysis for sure. 

Re: Wallace vs Russell.  Definitely put some thought into this one.  My first ODL, so who knows how things play out.

Definitely would love the minutes on Russell, but with only 70 Def and a usage that is just a little too high for someone with his offensive game.  Russell's best eFG is 46.7%, with 13% TO - whereas Wallace gives you a 52% eFG with only 10% TO, but since its 10% usage vs 15%, depending how the draft goes, I might not mind slipping down to the 02-03 Ben, getting slightly more M/$, and the higher Reb%. At the end of the day, maybe the offense makes no difference, but the Def score makes them in different tiers to me.

PS - What is the actual logic used for Russell not to be 100 in Def across the board?   I mean, it would make the SIM a better place, considering he is on everyone's Top 3 All-Time list, and not like anyone would have an issue with any logic that leads to Russell being a defensive monster.

jkaye love your team so far good defense teams always do better than expected and wallace doesnt foul. i think erving is just as good as wade in my opinion.

if it's defensive numbers, usg% and dreb%, then you should have a look at russell's 68-69 season (not the season i'm using)... 11.1% usage, 26.5 dreb%, 11.05% oreb, and 90 def and at a reasonable cost of 7.6 mil for 3200+ mins. i don't think wallace's 32.1% dreb season matches those plateaus.

of course it's about owner preference and priorities. in the odl, money runs out quickly, even at the 47 mil cap. happy hunting, paisano.

there is no logic in the Russell defensive rating which admin despite repeated user requests has refused to ever fix (the real reason is that the drtg is tied to dpoy and all nba team D awards which didn't actually exist back in the day

That's the one I was talking about.

McAdoo - Deron Williams

Both have almost no wasted salary.  Basically I'm not paying for stats that don't get used.  Both shoot 80% from the line, good enough D, good eFG and limited bad stats.
 
I probably should have taken Kidd though!   Great draft so far.  No goofy stuff yet.

Interesting, I did overlook 68-69, I think I would reconsider taking that one. So random he has one 90 Def sprinkled in...just when you'd expect him to hit his peak, in his LAST season

jkaye is because the defense firs team started in 69-69 and there is bonus in sim when your on a defensiv team or dpoy

I agree.nothing really crazy...yet.

 I think I need to phone a friend on this Jerry Lucas pick. I don't think I'm smart enough to figure out why he goes in the first two rounds in this league


 

an affordable 39 minutes of CREB 40 EFG 56 AS 11 with low negative stats (granted mediocre D but with the right hand cuff next to him?) - call it 'basketball reasons' - I would have loved to have him next to the Admiral

After thinking about it for awhile I took Lanier, he works well on my teams. Now I can bring a stone fingered PF. lol
