I'd like to try Bird at SF and Doc at SG some day - I think that would be a complimentary pairing with Bird taking treys and Doc making up for Bird's weak orb%

meanwhile:

top 5 on the glass
unlikely seeing as the starting 5 has a 35/85ish look to it

That Bird-Erving pair does sound great. But even better- TMac and Rodman. McGrady can shoot all day, and Rodman just cleans up whatever doesn't go in.

a more realistic pairing might be Moncrief/Bird or Erving/Marshall duo - Durant/Moncrief also

My initial plan was to pair Bird with Deron Williams.

I don't understand how Rodman-TMac is unrealistic. Rodman is an early first rounder, McGrady went mid-third round. Please explain how it would be unrealistic. I really don't understand.

it's not? my counters were intended as more realistic than Bird/Erving - which anyway could totally happen as Erving some times slips into the second round - I would say that Rodman/TMac is no better than any number of Rodman+ matches and isn't even really in the spirit of 'complimentary' originally intended - Rodman + Dirk might be more in the theme where Rodman's high ORB from SF allow you to use Dirk despite his low ORB from PF

True... LBJ/MJ/Wilt/Rodman plus anybody is a good pairing.

but not a realistic one in this league which was kind of the point
4/23/2014 1:33 PM
No, i was saying LeBron OR Jordan OR Wilt OR Rodman plus almost anybody else is a good pair. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Cookie anyone??? I see the team this way..#1 offense, top 5 defense, top 5 on the glass, top 5 dimes, top 5 steals, with low average tov/pf rate. My first 5 run ~112% usage. 50%fg & 77%ft. What's a block? At 19.4 min's I wish I had more. I'm think'n...120ppg, 52 boards, 30 dimes, 11 stls, 5 blks, 18 tov & 19pf.

Playoffs? - good luck keep'n us out !!!   
How are you seeing it now?

I am surprised my Rodman team is so poor. When was the last Rodman contender?

I've seen Rodman teams do well in the past.  However, I've never been able to use him before in a draft :(  I don't think I've ever selected in the top 10 before.

i won 50+ with him last season...didnt have much luck in the playoffs though
