Good to see that badja ranked me #2 on his board and got me with his 2nd pick. I guess what happened in the ODL when badja took me #1 overall is a distant memory and no lessons were learned. This is why I LOVE the division draft and we should NOT let it go. We all get to see what others think of our squads, and as my team cruises to 50+ wins Badja, dh, and 98 will all look like chumps for being so wrong about it.

Was gonna write some mean stuff to you nate, I'll make it simple.  You yourself have done poorly at drafting your own divisions in the past so gimme a break.   best of luck, but someone has to be ranked at the bottom and that person won't ever be happy.  feel free to show us your rankings.

I saw your original post badja, it was much better, haha.  Nate can take it. Just a little trash talk.

I am happy to get a chance to play nate 8 times. Even if he beats me 5 times, its a fun team to play against. But odds are I think i match up very well with a high FTA experiment. My team is a pretty low PF team (no starter over 3.5 PF/48), and nate doesnt have the PF reb to punish me for having a 29% Creb PF playing 39 MPG.

I don't think I match up well with your team badja, so well done there. I think I will thrive against teams with a weak Guard defender, or a weak bench defender of any kind as my team has usage all over the court and 4 guys playing 38+ MPG. Teams that bring in a sub-50 defender may find my starter still on the floor.   eleibowitz has a very good team, but Brandon should torch KJ on the regular.  Maglor looks to be a good matchup for everyone with TMac the only scary offensive player. i'll take my chance with that.  mikee1 is the team to beat.  He is going to batter me on the boards and has the Def to neutralize my attack.  Overall, I lowered my expectations when seeing this division but who knows how the SIM will play out.

Division predictions:
1. Mikee1     52-30
2. eleib          49-33
3.  badja        47-35
4. jkaye24      45-37
5. nate           37-45
6. maglor      33-49

Thanks for taking my squad #1 98. That's the way the it should be . . . the strong going against the strong. I do predict that my team will end up at the top of the division of course.

Also, I just wanted you to know that my evaluation of your team was done before I even saw your post here. There was no trying to get even with you or any of that. The C- grade for your squad was made without any bias against you or your obvious jealously towards me.

I get it that it's difficult for you to constantly be confronted by the fact that none of your teams have ever won this league in spite of your delusions of grandeur and predictions of greatness. I mean who will ever forget your squad that was going to show us "The Real 98average" who was taking it seriously. Let's see the top five picks were Dr J, Chauncey Billups, Zelmo Beaty, Grant Hill, and Connie Hawkins.

The results, as they always do, spoke for themselves that season now didn't they LOL! BTW my team was a division winner that season and it won 54 regular season games.

I'm happy with my division draft. Granted it took about 3 minutes max to create my list, but 4 of my 5 draftees were in my top 10 worst squads. I'm sure it will be tough regardless. And even though I had heel ranked bad, its never good to have Wilt in your division.

Vance you should have no problem putting a team up then. We are in the same division, play the same opponents the same amount of times. No excuses. Put your money where your mouth is. I am again.
1/12/2014 4:35 PM
Where are you Vance?

*crickets*
1/12/2014 10:23 PM
Where are the last 2 to enter their teams?  
1/13/2014 12:25 AM
Obviously not giving a **** about entering their teams.
1/14/2014 1:07 AM
98 I am a busy person. I do take you up on your bet for a $10 GC. May the best team win!
1/14/2014 6:19 PM
Should be easy money for you against my C- team.
1/15/2014 12:22 PM
So Malone9975 has clearly decided not to fulfill his commitment here.  Can we have a discussion on what to do?  I will enter this team if you want, take it or leave it!  I think the advantages and disadvantages of using fill-in players are pretty equal.  Some disagree.  All suggestions are welcome.
