There's a guy who hasn't been picked, that I just realized hasn't been picked, that is pretty shocking to me.  I don't think I'll pick him, because he won't fit in too well with what I've already got, but if someone has the right fit for him he'll be a spectacular value (should have been 3rd round at the latest in this format, IMO).

pretty sure its the guy me and robb were talking about on the last draft page...unless it was amare...both guys lasted way too long....thought for sure 98 would take one of them, although zo was a good pick too

Not a huge fan, smoke. Not enough defense and not enough rebounding IMO.

One guy who I think is doing a gerat job so far: bargearse.  I can't remember being in a basketball theme league with him before, at least not recently, but clearly knows what he's doing. Great balance so far.

heel, I'll agree that the boards aren't done, but I think the defense will be ok. I have about 2500 min's to load in the f/c, low usage assasins that clean the glass aren't all that hard to find later in the draft. The lineup needs another guard to dish out dimes, again not that hard to find.

What's the consensus on Outlaw and Ming? I was holding my breath on them but now see that neither was selected in dh's other draft league.
5/6/2014 6:02 PM
Actually, Outlaw was taken in the 5th round in that league. Makes me feel a little better.
5/6/2014 6:38 PM
Thanks for the vote of confidence tarheel! I joined a few nba leagues a long time ago around when scud was running the positional drafts and occasionally still lurk around to see who's getting drafted and read the team reviews heheh.

I'm starting to like the shape of my team, although am light on Def and probably heading towards the good but never great trap you talked about earlier.

These late rounds are going to be interesting trying to find backups that all fit under the cap for multiple seasons.

outlaw usually gets drafted...hes got a ton of useable seasons so hes a very good pick for this league...a little short on boards most seasons but hes always bringing the great defense and lets the superstars get theirs with his super low usg

yao doesnt always get drafted because he can be a tricky fit...hes not in that first teir of scoring centers and most teams just dont need scoring from the center spot later in the draft - usually just low usg boards and defense...plus he only plays center so you cant always hide his mediocre defense

Pinky and the Brain

not quite sure what to make of this motley group, except that they will be weaker defensively than most teams, I suspect

I like some of the pieces, but yeah, defense is going to be a real problem. And I don't think you'll have the offense to make up for it (although you're capable of building a much better offensive team than the one displayed above)

what an awful commentary thread. can someone please insult someone else's team, or do some analysis, or something?
5/9/2014 4:34 PM
Heel- Your team is worse than this years Sixers squad ;-)
5/9/2014 7:57 PM
meanwhile, in the wacky world of you know what department ...

I'm assembling "Pinky and the Brain" in Draft Center.

The Projected Depths tab lists Jerry Lucas as the backup point guard ...  ?!

My projected depth chart has LeBron coming off the bench to sub two different positions. Now that's depth!
