vance ash or whoever (even 98) I'd like to hear evaluations - I'l share my thoughts if you share yours
DH is doing evals on page one in the original post, fyi. Here's my thoughts on your squad:
24. felonius - Tim Duncan, Scottie Pippen, Marques Johnson, Robert Parish, Michael Redd, Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut
Duncan goes right where he should. He has an extremely good season to build around, but the lack of minutes (only about 2700 I think) for that season with what he actually brings pushes him to a late 1st/early 2nd grade for me. Therefore you took him at a perfect time. I'm not a huge Pippen fan generally (I'm still hung up on efg%, which he's kinda average, and I've never liked his contributions to the foul game. However, he does play great defense, give out plenty of dimes & boards well for a SG (and can cover PG on defense well), so I think this is a pretty good spot to grab him. He also gives you 10 usage points with Duncan without taking too many possessions away from the Big Fundamental. Marques is underrated. He can give you a really great offensive season OR give you a solid utility season at the 3. I assume you're using the latter. I like it. Chief in 4 was a steal. Bogut's a great rotation guy up front, Iggy gives you solid possession control while he's in there, and he & pippen combined can help hide Redd's weak defense (who is, imo, one of the best offensive players in the sim).
All in all, I like the possession battle edge going to you. I think you'll be competitive but not dominant in the shooting struggle. I think you're weak in the foul factor but not so weak to cause you to lose excessively. Overall, I feel like this is a winning squad and should finish above .500. Unless, of course, the primate curse falls upon you.
