I find this curious:
felonius - Michael Jordan, Elton Brand, Mookie Blaylock, Patrick Ewing
Could be another great team, Felonius got his offense now.  He can focus on the rest plus doesn't hurt to have two 90+ players that can cover all 5 positions between them

Blaylock is a great pick, 3s plus low TOs and fouls with some defense.  I don't understand the Ewing pick, you now have too much usage on the floor.  MJ is 6 points, Elton is 4 points and Mookie is 2.  So you have 12 points of usage then you add Ewing which is another 6 which makes 18 and you still have one more player.  You really shouldn't be more than 16.5.  You painted yourself into a corner Felonius. 

what corner is that? there is no upper limit penalty on usage, (at a high cap like this - at lower caps you wind up sacrificing in other areas but where am I sacrificing here?) and both Ewing and Mike are efg 55% so my two highest usage (and more importantly att per min) guys have the highest efg %s so I'm not sure where the corner is

Felonius there's no penality per se but the performance of the players start to diminish after a certain about of usage being on the floor.  You just have too much and IMO it really makes it hard to build your team now.

maybe, or maybe I increased the likelihood of someone with a 55% efg taking any given shot by like 25% - we'll see either way - good luck

When people are drafting teams, please keep me away from this team. Looking forward to reading Felon's evals next season.

Guys I'll do my best to get this done but I'm going to be pretty busy this weekend. Updated to Smokey for now..

"They are going to knocking each over to get that rebound!  Everyone is crashing the boards!  But even with rebound overload, he doesn't help.  Its like too much usage, diminishing returns for all that rebounding.  Oh and Kevin Garnett is your lead scorer, not a playoff team.  Now if Smokey wins his division or even squeaks into the playoff I'm sure I'll hear about it."

OK..where to start??? 113% usage simply is not "too much", I usually go closer to 117%. "Not going to help"..last time I check'd +58 boards does in fact help. Actually that's how you cover for the low efg%, just don't let the other guy have the ball. My assist (you remember assist..right) come from everywhere and there enough to hold onto what I brung and get da bump. Believe it or not, my 3 towers can block a few shoots...and then there's my pal Dudley. You'd be well advised not to put the ball on the floor anywhere near A-Rob. Then there's the defense thingy..that pair of def90's cover the whole floor and your 3rd shooter gets either a 84 or 77def. btw - that's so you'll miss, and it don't matter who miss's I own it. You could have fault'd the too many tov's & pf's..that's ligit. I have a blind, and I do mean BLIND spot, if someone drafts D. Robinson...sort of like you do for KG. LOL
