Was agonizing over the choice between 3 players.  I've put myself in a usage hole and have settled for mediocre interior defense, but am starting out with two monster rebounders, and Boerwinkle's ast% gives me some flexibility in building the backcourt.
There he is Boerwinkle is taken.. Yeah LTB you have some monster rebounding

Almost took him over Unseld, decided to take the guy with fewer fouls and more minutes, but Boe is a great pick.

7 guys I'd be excited to get and I'm still 10 picks away...don't love my chances.
7/17/2013 4:48 PM
with 11 picks to go i still have 12 guys on my round 2 wishlist.....thrilled right now

Nice, 98.  I had fantasies of Buse being overlooked and falling, but he's a nice complement to Tiny in this league.

I wanted Gervin, but Wllie Wise gave Gervin fits on my ATBA team. I have hundreds of games with the iceman, I'm looking forward to giving Wise a shot. Wise's usage% takes some pressure off also. I like Cowen & Wise, now a solid guard and my 3 man core is set.

Hey DH, I want to thank you for your input on the DDL. The unlimited salery & random draft order are hallmarks of the league...THX!

Really surprised by some of the guys that have and haven't been taken thus far. 

Oscar and Magic should be a mean pairing.  Lots of TOs, but a great start on assists, a decent start on usage, slightly above average D and good rebounding from the backcourt.  I wouldn't have put those two together but I get the logic.

Frazier and Westphal are another good pairing.  I was surprised by Westphal's options for usg% and efg%.  One of the worst rebounders ever, but he gives you a lot in this league.  I was hoping against hope he might slide to the third round.

youre very welcome...loving this league

I'm surprised by how many teams drafted 2 guards or 2 forwards. Frazier/Westphal, Oscar/Magic, Archibald/Buse and for 2 Bigs Walton/Roundfield, Daniels/Boerwinkle, Cunningham/McGinnis, Cowans/Wise. Interesting 
7/17/2013 8:59 PM
I noticed that trend, too.  Lots of us are establishing early areas of clear strength and rolling the dice on what will be available in later rounds.
7/17/2013 11:19 PM
10 more picks in the 2nd round and the trend could continue.

Hey, someone want to put a D on the end of Wes Unsel on the main list
