I don't have times posted yet, and the keeper list is not yet up to date, so please don't start drafting. Also, please doublecheck my work.

Hey I should also have a round 2 pick

When interacting with a few different owners, it's amazing how differently they see the available players.  Some say there is barely anyone left taking, while others say even the last pick of the Draft will be a good player.  Guess that depends on what is viewed as a good player.  Is a player with 3-$6 million and 3-crap seasons a good player?  Is he a better player than a guy with 5-$4 million seasons and 1-crap season?  Where do the players with 1 huge season fit in?  What about the stars who hung around too long and have those 3 or 4 horrible (to use) seasons at the end of their career.  It will be very interesting to see how everyone evaluates these questions.

As far as the stars who hung around too long I would have been in support of eliminating the last final 2-3 seasons of players.  Although random, it's not unreasonable to expect to get  the essence of who the player was with some season to season deviation. Being stuck with Ewing's last few years (or for that matter, that of hundreds of other players) is pretty gruesome.

That's part of the risk, and part of the fun. You literally have no idea which version of a player you are getting unless you take a guy with only one season. It's just like preseason. Your big money free agent could be a total bust. Your highly touted rookie could step up and have a big season. Your savvy veteran point guard might have enough left in the tank for one more big year. Just like in real life, GMs build teams with certain expectations. The ones who make the right moves and get a little lucky are the ones who win. Not many gms go into a season saying "Hey, lets make this team worse" unless you think you can get Andrew Luck or you are the Florida Marlins, and with the weighted draft, there's very little incentive for tanking, unlike most progressives.

Real life. Always poses obstacles :)
