Vance, I think dh has down around 19k or 19.1k , I went into the last one with something around 19.3k and had to use my $239k guy more than I would have liked near the end, but I still think 19.3 is about the min, 19.5 is way safer and you never know how many times WIS will stick it to you with ot and 2ot games. Anything over 19.5 may still be a waste though.

Anyone want to make a side bet on what player takes the scoring title? I figure I can get Kobe in the 35+ ppg range if I dare use the 39% usage version, but I KNOW that will bring down my team efg. However, the 42%+ ast% of Stockton should keep Kobe in the 50-51% efg range and those extra minutes of Kobe's 90D won't hurt, plus robusk has ridden that version of Kobe to the HDP finals (with Nash getting him the ball), he got 728 of his RL 819 fta's and his regular season efg was 50.65 (of course the HDP has weaker D than this league though).

yea....i was winning my division most of the year too...once kareem and russell dipped to 96% they really struggled....still think it was a solid plan...if i was able to hold on to the division and get that fatigue reset i would have been a tough out in the playoffs...problem was the division was very good and i got crushed my last 10 games...not only costing me the division but the playoffs too....that team had just over 19k mins....team i hope to have now has 19.3...im slowly learning haha

btw...im surprised my sg from last year hasnt been drafted....led the league in 3s last year and was in the top 25 in ftm too

better hope jethro doesnt use 61-62 wilt and take that bet haha....other then him id say youre the favorite if you use 05-06 kobe....scuds jordan, vancems durant, yards malone, coaches shaq, mikes kareem, evils mcgrady, and seapilots lebron are really the only ones with a shot....id put my wade in there too but im gonna run half-court with this team

well, I had to do it.  Time to show that offense still wins championships in the sim!  Fear the combined 69 defense of Nash & Peja!

saw it coming- tough to pass up all the efg - and good numbers in your left hand columns usually seem to trump good numbers in the right 4 right?

really puts me in a huge salary crunch, though.  Going to have to use different versions of pretty much everybody except the Admiral to make it work.  Honestly there were so many SGs available that I wanted to take... just couldn't pass it up.

I'm going to try to feel bad for you while also hoping that your team is in the other conference
3/25/2013 9:48 PM
hahahaha well put!  I'll make it all work, one way or another.
3/25/2013 9:54 PM
Game on Ash!  Let's see if defense or offense wins championships.  Charlie Edge cost a bundle, now I have juggle funds also, oh well, I think he's worth it. See you on the cyberwood...

dh in my last open league I used that Wilt and took 10 guys with a usage under 13.7 (and one under 18), Wilt averaged more than his rl total (about a 50.5 ppg ave)and I lost in the finals, his 48.5 mpg means anytime someone wants the scoring title its his unless you put too much usage with him.

I'll likey stick with the 07-08 or 08-09 Kobe, doesn't make much sense to add 400-500 extra shots at a LOWER efg, not only lower than the rest of my team, but lower than the other versions of Kobe.

One thing for sure I won't be using the 03-04 Kobe like the 5-25 team in the $52 mill league (applying a jinx to myself since I play him tonight). How can Kobe be 2nd on a team in scoring and Magic be a team's top scorer? I guess that's exactly how you get to 5-25, kinda feel bad for the guy (until he beats me tonight).

looks like you're putting that thing we talked about to the test, nc.

really low defensive rebounding for that ncmucisian team, but he always knows what he's doing, so I'll be interested to see what happens
