btw#2: "Tired of seeing the top picks wasted by ppl that don't know what they are doing."

who the hell do you think you are?
 
when natenoy, and sixers and vancem and others first came into the 52, they had top picks and couldn't win at first, but they learned and all became winners. so, who are these people who don't know what the hell they're doing? banditone? is that who you're referring to? he's an outlier. 
 
your reasoning escapes me.

Has Nate ever made the playoffs here?

For the record I predicted that I would finish 3rd in my division and be the #5 playoff seed in the dh$52, and that's eactly what happened. Ash will be tough, but if I look at these factors in a consistent manner then I have to pick myself for the division.

more than once, sly, and he's won the odl... what's your point?

I didn't have a point scud. I just asked a question. I only posted it because I knew you'd go do some digging to find out the answer so I didn't have to.

Wow, miss a day and you miss a lot around here. While I'm 5 for 6 in the ODL in terms of playoffs I'm only 3 for 6 here. Won my division my first time out with Wallace/Duncan/Kemp picking 23rd , then missed it by a game with a D Wade team (vance repeat title season), followed by a 2nd round exit with MJ (v tar), then a 1st round exit (v sly) with Rodman/Chandler/D-Will/***. My next team was the Wilt scoring record 50-loss team and my last one was Kareem with a scoring title without enough 3's or boards.

So, I'm only batting .500 here and have only one division title and two playoff series victories in six seasons, but I did set a rebounding record with the Worm, and a scoring record that will never be broken (at least not by a winning team) with Wilt.  Only division title came from the 23rd slot though, which IMO picking at the bottom is more likely to produce a division title but may be less likely to produce an overall champ.

Will make my forth round pick shortly.

Depending on what happens in the 5th, Durant may have a run at PF/C  this time. My team should look like a tasty division draft choice for someone that has built a strong rebounding team, I just hope I end up in a division filled with foul monsters. I'm not positive which version of West I'll go with, likely to be 70-71 24.3% ast% at this point. If I go with that version then right now I have 12,045 minutes and 674 fouls or a pf rate of .056, 5401 FGA's with 2151 FTA's for a 2.51 ratio, and 1858 FTM's for a .864 FT%. 

IMO the engine utilizes the FGA./FTA ratio in the foul battle. Not that it matters but my FTA/pf ratio is 3.19 to 1 and my FTM/pf ratio is 2.76 to 1. 

So, my basic theory is this: there is a rebounding floor in the sim, thus teams that are dominated in that area still get something in the low-40's each game. IMO it may be possible to generate an FTA advantage of around +10 per game, if my RL FT% stays in the mid-80% range then that could equate to +8.5ppg. Then the question becomes does that make up for rebounding? 

My efg, and  assists will likely be in the upper 1/3 of the league as well (and my D is on course to be at least average with a 90,78,70,40 start). Turnovers could be a downfall but I'm already close to 600 triples at a 40% clip so elite long range shooting will help in that balance.

I'm not proclaiming this to be a LOCK 50-win strategy, but I will be shocked if it results in a 50-loss season. Either way this squad will give me something unique to see in the twice daily WIS boxscores.

Those numbers could also be your team's fpg through your first four games.
