Ash, evals were a good read, thanks for doing them. I'd give myself the same type of grade if doing an eval that was not based on my own assumptions regarding what the Sim will produce. We will see what happens with Durant, given that he will never see less than 75% assists and will be over 100% at times should produce an efg bump, let alone keep him above RL. And he will have two 4-point guys on the court with him most of the time, so the individual penalty, in theory, will be avoided.
Tar, what version of Payton did you use? In the last Equal Opp league I took Sea/Okc with the 24th pick. Used KD, Allen, Evans from my team here, but Payton tanked my squad. Still won like 45 but missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker. He was very frustrating to own and stole far too many shots from Allen and KD. For your team I expect him to have many a "bad Kobe" type game, which I'm sure you know what that means.
