Well yes, but he coulda had Wilt + 2 more top 50 picks.  That would be my preference, given there is a perfect SF and SG still out there for a Wilt team.

Basically the question is whether Dr. J + McHale > Wilt.  I'd have to say no.

PLUS, since Wilt is not on his team, we have made it tougher on the rest of us by agreeing to the trade.  The saving grace is that Nate won't use the best Wilt season.

Well steelers I hate the MJ pick because McHale at PF is a failing grade in this league. He just can't get enough boards and MJ won't make up for that enough. A better player was there as well. I don't like Rondo here. I know that high assists are the current league fad right now. The defense is very good to great, the EFG% is above average, the negative numbers are okay, That being said you could have done worse and this unit is a defensive beast so far man.

you think so vance my team already has 33 oreb before i drafted a center i really dont think boards will be a problem for my team if anything  strength if i get the guy i want and not sure the problem with rondo is.

im enjoying mchale at pf in the odl....hes fine there if you make up for it elsewhere...rondo/erving/marques are all plus boarders at their position so you are off to a good start there with more easily added at the center position....you are off to a real nice start with awesome defense and loads of pos flexibility...didnt care for the rondo pick though...now youll have no 3pt shooting

I'm seeing much less of an emphasis on three-point shooting than a year ago, let alone three years ago.  Defense is clearly rising as a priority in team-building, like I haven't seen since back before the advent of advanced stats.

oh yea....its definitely changed...but i still think having no 3pt shooting at all hurts your offensive spacing and invites teams to go -2 on you

based on your power rankings from last year I'll hope to be towards the bottom

by the way, I've tried to propose a trade similar to nate's before to get a high pick and take Wilt or Rodman and been rejected. I don't think that trade is unfair given the value of Wilt, but I can understand the argument that it creates an unfair advantage for the guy trading away a high pick. I think it's more "fair" than an entire switch of draft spots that includes giving away Wilt (like Vance's from a few seasons ago) in terms of the value of Wilt in building a 52 mil team. But it's certainly debatable.
