high blk% usually means high defense in WIS no matter what.

For instance, the lowest defensive rating in the sim with a 5% blk% is 61.  With 6% it's 73.

eleibo, yea the Pelicans as a whole are super-weak on D, but so were the Bucks last year and Larry Sanders pulled down a 92D as the 12-13 blocks leader. I'm thinking Davis has to get close to an 80 rating pre-D update, but should be a lock for 1st Team ALL D, so may end up in the Sanders neighborhood.

I'm also thinking Drummond as a guy to try in the 2nd round in the ODL. Had another monster game last night.

Yeah having an awesome year but only thing that may hold him back is his fouls. Going to be in the 280 range at about 2600 mins.

Don't know if Blake Griffin been mentioned, but a solid season is coming..~28.9%use @ 53.2%efg w/70% from the stripe, shoots 24ppg. Has a reasonable tov & pf rate, and should go close to 80 def...def70+ anyway. He's starting to get beastly!!!

a +100% sf would be very nice...

I'd be surprised if his defense is above 60.  The only way this season will be noticeably better than his others is if he remains a tier 2 usage player and is 99+% at SF.

Here's a question... Which LeBron would you take: 12-13, or 13-14 (assuming no significant stat changes, and MP around 2900 min again)? This year's LBJ is shooting better, but tov% is up, so are fouls, and his treb% and ast% will be lower. His defense might not reach the levels it did last year as well. So... which one would you take?

With the season winding down and players stats pretty much set.  Here are the notables IMO:

Kevin Durant- depends where his defense is but will you take him over Jordan in a draft league?
Kevin Love- similar eFG/TS than his 10-11 season with less rebounding but now a tier 2 scorer.  Defense? we will see
Stephen Curry- Tier 2 scorer with a 56% eFG.  Probably now a solid round 2 in a draft league
James Harden- Could be a later round pick if you need scoring.  Extremely efficient scorer but defense will be a liability
DeAndre Jordan- Will join the low usage/high rebounding and defense players in the 2nd round
Paul George- Had a great start to the season but now is not draftable
Joakim Noah- Had a Tom Boerwinkle type season but eFG is just too low
Andre Drummond- Had a great season similar to DeAndre but with his fouls being a little high I would compare him to Buck Williams (better than).  Late 2nd early 3rd round
Lebron- Another incredible season for him but 12-13 was better
Dwight Howard- The model of constantancy this year looks like many of his years prior
Goran Dragic- His defense is going to be horrible but if you need a scorer with assists in the 5th round he could fill the roll

Durant at 61 is not a great number. But the 8-pt season and career high efg and ast are still pretty awesome for a 2.
Thought love might get like a 45 def as I thought stats had him close to average but he is stuck at 30.
4/18/2014 12:13 PM
Anthony Davis 99% @ SF... Andre Drummond and DeAndre Jordan look amazing... CP3 and Dwight keep on putting up numbers... Kawhi Leonard has some good advanced stats, but minutes are low... and I was looking for 50-60 def for Lance Stephenson, but other than that he looks semi-usable. All around great season, and congrats to WIS for not keeping us waiting forever like they have in the past.
