My bench is going to be a little weak as well. But at least Amare/Artis/Tarpley should keep me out of any usage penalties.

PG: Darrell Walker/Iguodala
SG: Andre Iguodala/TR Dunn
SF: Ray Allen
PF: Kevin Garnett/DaJuan Blair
C: Andrew Bynum/Blair

Well, we'll see. I like a lot of things about this team. The three scorers (Allen, Garnett, Bynum) have great efg%, and Garnett and Allen are great FT shooters, too. This team also has very low fouls and turnovers for a 47 mil team, at least compared to the ones I usually build. Bynum and Iguodala hardly foul at all. Rebounding should be OK thanks to Walker and Dunn (I actually made a slight misstep with Dunn, because I didn't realize Walker was still available. I may use a $300k version of Dunn if there is an undrafted player I like better). Defense is not great, but aside from Allen no one is below 50, at least. I think it should be OK, but we'll see.

Pg- D. Wade
Sg- Raja Bell (Only a 3M season with fairly low usage, 70 3's and 70 D)
Sf- E. Brand (Had to use his second best season, but still a good scoring partner for Wade)
Pf- AC Green
C- Clifford Ray 

Bench Warriors
G- Kyrie Irving
Post- Bill Walton

What I like: I like to have a stud or 2 off the bench. Usually all my teams will have a guy in the top 5 for sixth man of the year. I hope Clifford plays well enough to let Walton come off the bench. I'm not sure how well Walton would work starting with Brand & Wade, but if Clifford keeps getting 2 fouls in the first 4 minutes and going to the bench I might have to. Rebounding, defense, fta's, fouls and to's are right about at the benchmarks that you look for. I've seen where Irving has been doing really well in some leagues. So I'm happy to have him giving a little bit of everything except D off the bench.
What I don't like: I wish efg was a little bit better. Especially since I have to use 3 or 4 scrubs for a few minutes each and their efg always sucks and makes a suspect teams even worse! I have less than 400 made 3's. Well, I guess you can't have everything. I chose to go with rebounding at the sf this time rather than a 3pt shooter. Not to many Donyel Marshall's out there that do both. Overall, I'm not sure how this groups usage is going to gel with Wade. We'll see. Once again I'll probably be around 45-48 wins and fighting for one of the last couple of playoff spots, much like my Lebron team last year.

Wow, no evals?
11/27/2012 1:10 AM
The evals are coming in the NCIH $52 Million league Big Boy! So draft right or you will get the wrath of the V-Man. There are no official or formal evals in this league.
11/27/2012 1:47 AM
I would like to start the tradition of the champion doing evals in this league as well.

Of course, it will never be a concern for me.

You know that the opposite of love isn't hate the yard2 it's apathy. Not being mentioned is your listings really makes me feel empty and like a big zero inside :(
