McAdoo's FGApm is .51, Pippen's is .44 - some of Pip's usage is in other categories, most of McAdoo's is in attempts so I'm hoping that he and his 55% efg will actually play the role of big dog

I'm going to be away from Internet access for the next few hours. In the meantime, can the 21 owners I can't do evals for yet please SM me with the seasons you plan on using for your drafted players? Thank you.

That's my starting lineup. I don't really like my team all that much, honestly. Unfortunately, I don't think I've really given Durant a chance to shine. Put plenty of assists around him, and plenty of usage to ease the pressure on him, but my team has way too many turnovers and boards aren't all that good. Starting lineup's defense is great, but the backups are mostly weak in that area.

I LOVE my team!  Wade and Olajuwaon are my main scoring threats, from outside/midrange and down low.  Unseld grabs rebounds and gets some blocks at the 4 or 5, depending on matchups.  Rondo has a high assist rate and rebounds well for a 1, plus high ***/TO rate, and Odom does it all at the three.

I learned from the previous ODL and took two migher USG subs in Tisdale and Barros.  Tisdale has a high usg rate with decent to good rebounding, and Barros can loosen the D with a great 3 pt shooting rate (44%) and is a decent 18.2 usg.  I should be able to find scoring options much better than last time when all five starters are on the bench.  Defense sucks with my other backups but I think everyone faces that problem.

Of course I loved my team after the draft in the last ODL and started 0-9, so who knows.

Adding Varejao at the end is a nice boost to my rotation. Makes up for Dirk/Patrick's biggest weakness-lack of oreb. The 11 MPG he plays next to Rodman will be 32.6% Oreb from those two spots with either Dirk or Patrick next to them. Haskins is a 58% efg/18.8 usg player I had never noticed before. Not sure if others have used him but that's a very solid 9 MPG subbing for EJones, to keep the usg at 2 pts for that spot.

"postage: J. Erving, E. Brand, S. Curry, L. Sanders, J. Tinsley, M. Bol, R. Wallace

Interesting. I am going to assume the starting lineup is Curry, Dr. J, Brand, Wallace, Sanders. In any case, your defense is crazy good. However, your usage will most likely be fluxuating like crazy, which may lead to fg% problems.. Also, your ast% whenever Bol is on the floor will most likely look hideous.

Playoffs?: NO"

 

I have enough usg% spread throughout my starting five, and most of my backups, that it's incredibly unlikely I'll receive the penalty.  Although I agree that my team's ast% is low, the difference between Bol's ast% and the person whom he is backing up is only 4.1%.

A 4.1% swing hardly shifts my ast% from below average to hideous.  

 

I do agree with you that it's unlikely I'll make the playoffs.  I like to think that team "Sorry for Jabari" is in rebuilding mode and hoping to get a good draft slot for next season.  I hear the lottery is pretty stacked ;)

Thanks for voicing your thoughts, postage. I have no idea who else you're bringing on as backups to the Erving Brand Wallace trio, so that's where my concern for usage comes in. I think it will be hard to find bench players around the usage you need, that also shoot well. I also don't know how you plan on building your rotation. If Bol is solely backing up Sanders, then your ast% won't be terrible. It will still be pretty bad, though.

well i had no plans to take tmac again...but he was just kinda sitting there at the end of the 3rd and i needed a scorer...he led me to 52 wins and won a scoring title last season, but he also had rodman with him...this team is kinda similar to that one...i even brought back pau(steal in the 5th)...ill be just as efficient as last season and the defense is pretty much the same...i wont have the offensive rebounding domination of last season but this team is better on the defensive glass....i dont know why hoopsdude thinks ill be weak on the glass...looking at my division im thinking ill be one of the stronger teams on the boards from that group...melo is also a huge upgrade from the backup sgs i had last season....all in all i think this team is just as good or maybe even better than last season...but this time i wont have trb and tarheel in my division and i made sure to draft more mins...playoffs no?..thanks hoopsdude...now we have the proper motivation as well
