Now if you go by real world attributes that would make a person good at flex i would think that speed, perimeter, passing and bh would be pretty important
basically a flex offense is screening and cutting which you'd think quick, athletic types would be able to create separation from the defender and you'd want to have perimeter to hit the jumper when open (or bh/lp to drive to the hoop)
that being said.. you need probably 2 studs with high spd/per and set their distro high and then your role players you might want to value passing pretty high so they can get the ball to the open shooter..
so would it look like this in order of preference? (im guessing here)
scorers - spd, per, ath, bh, p
role players - ath, bh, p, spd, per (or lp)
thats my guess anyway.. i have 4 teams and don't run a flex on any of them.. be a good topic though if we can get some of the good coaches input..
i always try to put values on my stats when i look at players which may not be the best thing.. when i look at a lets say a PG and i make my percentages = 100%. i may say that ath=15,spd=20,def=10, per=10 ,bh=25,pass=20 (i just made those up on the fly and when i do this, i tweak them depending on off/def)
anyway, the whole point to me even bringing that up is i've been trying to come up with "values" for all schemes (flex, triangle, motion, fcp, m2m, zone, etc) to try and speed up my recruiting efforts and hopefully results...
