The fact that Nate thinks he can win with Wilt and a bunch of undrafted players should tell you how good Wilt is.  Trading him makes no sense to me.  Just lemme know when I'm up;)

Badja, that's the whole point that a trade for Wilt is unlike any other and has to offer a lot to the person dealing him away. Maybe we should consider banning Wilt from future seasons?

The main difference, dh and nate, is that when I traded with jethro it was a complete swap of all of our picks. I have no problem with steelers and nate swapping all of their original picks. That would be fair. I think that we all agree that in this league each draft slot in the first round, and all of the picks that go along with that slot ,are basically equal to each of the other first round draft slots and the picks that go along with them.

In the original trade between steelers and nate there is no fairness at all. How can it be fair to trade 2 sixth round picks for an extra 2nd and an extra 5th round pick? The revised trade as spelled out by sly above is much more fair. 
Not even CLOSE to "all slots equal". If that were the case Wilt would not be in his 3rd straight conference championship with back-to-back titles from 3 different owners.

Yes please.

Keep in mind I don't even want to use "guaranteed trip to the final-4" Wilt, I want to guy that solves all rotation and usage issues for 48mpg and the one that will put up 50ppg if I build the team correctly.

IMO here is where we are right now:

Banditone selects LeBron
Pick#2 selects Wilt

Tricky currently has the #3 and can pick if he opts to stay in that slot or he can wait for the official draft to start when the finals end.

Steelers can take the adjusted deal whenever he wants; wait for the order to lock to confirm the deal; or just keep Wilt for himself.

Can we just assume Wilt is the next pick and have tricky be up?  Either way Wilt is being taken with the 2nd pick

Exactly eleibowitz, Wilt is going #2, tricky has the option to pick now, wait for the finals to end, or change his slot selection. Anything between me and steelers is not holding up the draft at this point.

How exactly am I holding things up Leibs?

I hate the lottery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Badja- I think he's just saying in general that all the back and forth is getting old- not that you're holding things up.
7/17/2013 2:05 PM
i didnt expect the draft to start until the finals ended....but hey...thats fine with me...gives us a head start

just know that once you post a pick...thats it...its official and cant be changed

so since we know wilt is going #2 to either steelers or nate...tricky may pick whenever he likes....or wait...its up to him


as far as trades go...i encourage them as long as its fair and dont care how many take place...ill be on top of it so the draft board doesnt get confusing....thats the only reason there was a problem in the odl...seapilots was still new at his commish duties and kind of made it confusing...but by the end of the draft he figured out what worked best and it was all good....i dont have a problem at all with the proposed trade between steelers and nate...steelers is getting good value for wilt and nate has his work cut out for him to find the right supporting cast...plus im pretty intrigued to see what wiltzilla can do in this league...should be fun
