also looks like jethro realized he was actually building a decent team and decided to keep his rep up by murdering his team with his last 3 picks

really like trickys team....imo dirk is totally underrated...the guy can drop 30 a game(if you use the right season) at 50/40/90 and wont turn the ball over a lot while doing it....and if used right(which i think tricky did here) expect to see dirk near the very top in ftm.....its not that hard to cover for his rebounding and defense in this league either....jones/varejao/russell were perfect matches in the frontcourt ....kidd and harden(huge steal in the 6th) are studs....if thompson can step up and be that solid #2 to dirk this could be a really tough team

"I will restate that if DR J is used at SF then I don't like the overall make up of the team."

depends of which erving....a big boy erving has plenty of rebounding for a sf...especially when ltb has a przy/boozer/okafor pf/c combo...using him at sf also opens the door to add more 3s....always a good thing

Dh, I had a few different teams built that dissolved during the 5th, could not believe felionus took C Web, had a plan with tons of assists from my bigs and 4pt usage at C that blew up with Sabonis and CWeb coming off the board. Thought about my 6pt usage SF from the last ODL as well, but the low to's; high FTA's; crazy 3pt% of Rice was something I've been intrigued to try for a while now.

Plus I have learned the hard way what happens when teams neglect to double MJ, I HAD to have 3's; and I think Rice brings a great combo of both getting to the line and killing from the arc with little tradeoff from midrange. I needed enough D in place, and ast% to try Rice, I had that, so it was kind of now or never.

I needed the trade to get Kyrie, I agree I could have had Rice at the end, but the deal gave me flexibility that I didn't get to maximize because of the way things went with the other team's picks.

Walker with the 1/2 point in usage also gave me a headache, after I took the 1-point Ibaka and the guarantee of a 4pt C was gone, I was forced to add a 6-point usage guy to assure no exposure to the penalty.

Putting these guys with MJ could very well be a misplay, but that's one more WIS lesson I'll have to learn the hard way.

i think people stress over usage points more than they need to around here....jordan alone was enough imo....when tarheel dominated with jordan a few seasons ago i dont think he had anyone over 20% usg besides mj

How much money have you got to play with? The team somehow seems weak on the assist front. Minor contributions from a bunch of guys is nice though.

omg.........so much for following up on my final 4 appearance. You should feel fortunate if you're picked in my division. 

2 guys I hate to use
Shawn Kemp- fouls way too much for me
KJ- plays no D at the point has a mediocre EFG and is useless on 3's even in his best season

and 2 guys I've never used

Jamaal Wilkes- I don't know if he's ever been selected before. this may be a first. After a few games I'll probably know why he's never selected
Robert Freakn Horry- Are you kidding me? What was I thinking?

This has a chance to be the worst team in the league. I'm disappointed :(

so wrong about about kj....that was the guy i wanted all along before nash fell into my lap....yes the defense sucks(playing next to the best defensive guard it really doesnt matter) but hes an incredible offensive player....gets to the line a ton and is far from useless from downtown...huge steal in the 6th

96-97 kj is amazing.

09-10 tony allen will back up Alex English and 97-98 vlade divac will back up beaty and robinson. My back up PG and SF will be undrafted. Shouldn't be any problem getting the players I've targeted for those roles.

I really like KJ in the 47 millon leagues.
