Thoughts:

1) Even though I should of taken Kareem (I just had Howard last season), had to take Rodman never used him before
2) Dr J was taken way too early, IMO.  Wade a little too early
3) Where Bird was picked is where he belongs the 86-87 season gives you so much flexibility
4) Still not sold of CP3 in ODL very expensive for what he gives you
That is exactly why I took Bird when it came to me, by a hair over Hakeem.  Bird is 97% or more at every position but PG, gives you defense, usg/scoring, assists, steals and great rebounding for a 3, and outrageous rebounding for a 2 if I decide to go that way.

I'm confused about the KG pick @ 30th. IMO he's a top 12 pick..??? Had Karl Malone been gone, I probably would have taken KG 7th.
This is why the ODL is my favorite. While some parts of the draft can feel very predictable, there is so much owner preference that makes each season unique. (Says the guy who has been in 3)

Wonder if you could make KG work @ the 3...lol.
yes

Yeah but KG #7? He seems like a very good 21-24 pick. This year he fell a little bit lets not go nuts. His usage just isn't as efficient as a top 10 player. Horse is now dead.

the general theory for the longest time was that you put KG at the 3 to give yourself a board advantage... despite his relatively inefficient 100% sf season.  He has some solid PF seasons (my favorite is actually the 07-08 season, but it's not worth a 1st imo)

EXACTLY!  I have almost as much fun thinking about what other people are doing with their combinations as I do my own.

I have a draft list of players that don't usually get drafted in the ODL. After that 'Bozo the Clown' team nate ran by the ODL in XLIV..lmfao..I figure anything can work. Think I'll try the 'ScoreMo' design too.   That team lost in every stat except 'points'.....LOL

With two of the next 5 picks, I'm really only considering two players. If that second guy isn't there at #50, I would be interested in trading down. Trying to give notice, because I don't want to slow down the draft.

"Hey, Karl... whoze this cat, LM FAO? some chinese dude?" malone shakes his head, finishes lacing up his shoes... "Get a brain already, Bill... it's just weak $hit coming our way, man. ain't nuthin' to worry 'bout." 

meanwhile, in the other locker room... "Yo, Big-O, a Mr. Fao says you're weak $hit and you're soooo dead. Who's this clownshoe?" oscar shrugs... "I think he's the janitor."

It's not that Bridges is a bad pick...but no one was going to take him in rd 2-3 so why not just load up knowing he would be there? Value is the key not skill.
11/27/2013 10:46 PM
loving the scud & smokey exchange thus far.  That's smack talk the way it should be.

At least you guys don't have to have a jewelry store on standby to polish all the rings your players have (ignore that, Mr. Russell). ;-)
