Getting Rodman at #8 is an absolute steal.......
Yep.

Also Larry Nance was a bargain almost 60 picks in.

Agree.

Okay ash just because you were the champ two seasons ago doesn't mean that I can't call you out for trolling does it?
3/19/2014 10:47 PM
I honestly was trying to figure out which part of that did & didn't pertain to me!
3/20/2014 1:15 AM
After 3 rounds I'm looking at 1) '02' Garnett 26.5%use, 50.8%efg, def90..100% @ the 3, 2) '99' Payton 26.8use, 50.2%efg, def90 @ the point and 3) '06' Nowitzki 29.5%use, 52.9%efg, def54 in the hole. The ast% and distribution of ast (1/272, 3/143 & 5/124) is quite good and should have a positive effect on efg% team wide. The two def 90's will cover the top 2 use% opponents in the 1-5 spots. This will reduce my opponents efg%. The tov & pf rates are very reasonable given the def & ast rate. The dreb are good @ 3/279, 5/235 & 1/130.

not happy about that Unseld pick - should have gone with Ibaka

smoke I like how you're stacking weak orb with mediocre efg, I think you may be on to something...
3/20/2014 4:41 PM
smokey, I love how you continue to stubbornly embrace this idea that ast% is more effective if it's spread out across your team despite zero evidence to the contrary. That's a man of principle.

I actually tend to end up with teams with more balanced ast%, too (although maybe not this season) but I've never seen anything to indicate that 5 guys with 15% is better than two with 30% and three with 5%.

also sixernuggets probably just clinched a top 2 division draft pick with that Issel/Sikma combo.

I wonder though (and in his defense) since WIS nerfs IRL as% to reflect the fact that a guy cant assist on his own shots (in effect) maybe they've modeled their assist equation that way too? (I mean I know what they say but I also know what they've said and how that's borne out by actual reality in the past so with everything a liberal pinch of salt

I know sixernuggets needs to go back for a refresher course in drafting. In RL I loved Issell and Sikma but not here.

Pretty happy with my team so far. Great overall defense compared to what I normally draft.  I don't know if having CP3 as my highest usage player is a good thing or a bad thing though. What do you guys think of the CP3 Frazier back court combo?

3/20/2014 5:17 PM
My team is going to bad. I really mismanaged the draft, but I am really happy with trading my #1 pick. I think I will try that every season both here and the ODL.
3/20/2014 5:56 PM
Jh: just curious. Why are you happy trading first pick? Mel Daniels is normally a good 3rd banana not more, so what did it do for you?
3/20/2014 6:01 PM
you could still piece together a pretty nice squad with guys taken at or after jh's draft slots - I don't think the theory was so bad, just the execution was a little rough - then again Im still kicking myself for not taking Ibaka to match with Duncan and Doc
3/20/2014 6:05 PM
The foursome isn't bad, that's true. I think "closer to 24" accomplishes the principle at work there. But hey maybe it's brilliant
3/20/2014 6:35 PM
You don't see a ton of surprises in the top 30. It's usually pretty scripted. I did say closer to 24, but as the new guy, got 24. Even after the Dikembe bump, I didn't expect Durant to be there.So, that's on me but...

having the picks together is just more fun. I think Felonius gets what I tried to do in theory. If (hopefully when) I did/do  it again, i'll do it differently. The execution this time has been rough.
