3) tarheel1991 - Michael Jordan, Horace Grant, Bobby Jones, Clifford Ray, Kris Humphries, Kenny Smith, D. West
Another nice squad, 'heel, though it's not up to your usual standard. Horace & Bobby... huh? Ray is cool... Humphries is excellent... but I'm still confused by Horace & Bobby. Also... the Jet is a fine pg or sg for 2000 minutes, but what're you gonna do the rest of the time? Ray gives you nice assists while he's on the floor, but this whole thing makes me think you're gonna go with the wrong Jordan. You could win 50 games or lose 50 with this squad and neither would surprise me.
Thanks for stopping by Ash. Sorry to hear about the family stuff.
As for the analysis, I'm not sure why everyone is hating on Horace and Bobby. I admittedly wanted Nance instead of Jones, but those guys are great complements to Jordan - low usage, very high efg%, good defense, solid assists, and low negatives (although Bobby has more fouls/turnovers than I would like - which is why I wanted Nance). I know it means I start a below-average defensive rebounder at the 4 or 5, but I already had secured plus rebounding at the 2 and 3 to make up for it, and knew it wouldn't be too tough to get good rebounding later (ended up being Ray and Humphries). My starting lineup has 43%/91% rebounding, which is perfectly fine, so their only real downside is covered. Although I guess lack of threes is another negative, and I didn't cover that as well as I would have liked.
I'm not going with the "wrong Jordan" - I'm going with 89-90. I think you're implying I'm short on assists around him, but I should be fine thanks to Horace/Bobby/Ray all having good assists (plus another post guy off the bench). West has about the same ast% as Smith.
Admittedly this team is not as good as I would have liked. I was 1-2 picks away from Nance in the 3rd and Brent Price in the 6th (instead of Jones and Delonte) which would have given me more threes and lower fouls/turnovers. I think my biggest weakness is lack of threes, as well as too many fouls (a problem I often have). But we should score the ball extremely well and play solid defense. Would be disappointed if this wasn't a very good team, but I said that last year in this league and was the most disappointed I've ever been.
