Just looking at some of the good players (potentially) available for next season;

Usual suspects: Lebron (eFG .634 with 32.9 usage wow), Wade (highest eFG in career .555 if he can stay healthy), Durant, CP3, Dwight Howard
Newcomer for draft league first round pick: Paul George

Others:
Andre Drummod
Demarcus Cousins (if he can get his eFG up a little)
Kevin Love
DeAndre Jordan

For those who don't know, here is the website I used

I am seeing Lebron @ 29.2 usg.  Still a deadly season of course, but should note his TOV% is up and AST% is slightly down.

you mentioned Love -- he is working on his best year. Could be:  28%usg, 52%efg, 200 3PM, 12-15% Ast, 40% Creb...but his Def might stay at 30

Oops your correct about LeBron looking at the wrong stat. Yeah Love is having a monster year plus according to the stats he's playing a little defense also..according to basketball reference he's right now 102. Which is not bad..

Not a top of the line guy, but if Matthews continues shooting the ball the way he is, he'll be gold in the SIM, with it's love of 3s.

12/29/2013 8:14 AM
Yeah another one like that is Kyle Korver shooting an insane .672 eFG with 67% of his shots being 3s.  I doubt he will be able to sustain this but we will see..

ughh...ill hate it if spencer hawes becomes a relevant sim player....hes got a nice combo of dreb% and 3s right now...hopefully he falls off(but not until after hinkie is able to get some trade value for him)

And how they work it here DH he'll be 98% at SF....

Andrew Bogut looking solid.. 62% efg 11.3 orb 28.9 drb
1/2/2014 3:15 AM
oh my gracious

Also should mention Stephen Curry his eFG% is pretty much the same as last year at this point, so his is amount of 3 pointers.   But his ast% is up about 25%, his usage is up to 28.2% (making him a tier 2 scorer) and defense rating is at a 101 so far, way better than last years 107. 
1/10/2014 5:37 PM
I submit for consideration Bismack Biyombo.. remember he is 99% at SF 100% at PF and C (in his two available seasons atm). Looks like a great Rodman backup at SF..


So far this season (he is on pace for about 1500 minutes I think)
9.5 usg
63.4 efg
8.6 orb
28.3 drb

now his blck and stl are a bit down from prior years so his D may drop a bit from the 65/74 he had previously but should be around 60 still.


1/11/2014 9:08 PM
i wouldn't be suprised if biyombo's D was even higher next year... the bobcats have somehow been phenomenal on D this year
1/13/2014 9:06 AM
Bogut is more than solid this year.

Scoring is up, OReb is up, DReb is up, CReb, is up, Fouls are down, and then there is the 60% shooting. Plus his defense should be at least 80 unles she gets screwed like Marc Gasol did last year.

On Kevin Durant

Right now he's at 32.2% usage, if he can get to 32.5% usage I believe you can justify him being a top 5 pick in draft leagues.  Currently he's 56.8 eFG (64.5 TS%) 2.4 OREB% 19.1% DREB 26.7% assist (but this will be nerfed to to around 18%) 12.6% TOV.  

I believe this is better than Jordan best SIM year, not including defense.  Which not sure where he will land on that

I haven't seen the #'s yet..but Blake Griffin & DeAndre Jordan are the pairing from hell...
