Go for it. The styles are all over the place but a lot of the content is pretty thoughtful. Picking up some good insights.

which know it alls are lacking championships?

Interesting stat.  

The top 12 teams' owners in 98's final round 2 power rankings have a combined 72 championships.
The bottom 12 teams' owners have a combined 191 championships.

Carry on.  I'm guessing the 3rd round rankings won't change much.

46 championships, 432 teams.
43 championships, 149 teams (also in the finals in a league right now).

Assuming the ratio held true, I'd have 124 championships had I played as many teams as 98 has.  Kinda shows why he's always been so bitter towards me, I guess... he knew I'd pass him up on the champs list with around a third as many teams.

Lack of championships indeed.

You will never pass me, I will make sure of it. Others have tried but I have always maintained my lead.
5/12/2013 5:13 PM
You realize you actually have to win championships to maintain that lead, right?  Not off to a great start here...
5/12/2013 6:04 PM
Well Ash please give me an eval of my team as it currently stands and what you think they will do.

Read em and weep. At this point you should have close to half of your teams total minutes. If you are outside of the top 12 you have some work to do to make the playoffs.

We are on DH. You do have a nice team so far. There is not much separating 4 through 11 right now. The top 3 are distancing themselves from the field at this point. In the race for the basement, LTB just barely overtook Tar. Judging by LTB's 4th round pick it looks like he will have a stranglehold on that basement spot.

hey 98, who is playing 5 for you? you've got 3 guards
5/12/2013 10:31 PM
some groups that look interesting to me, in no particular order, without much deep thinking about it:

-coachcroft has a great high-defense, high-efg, high-rebounding team, assuming Jones is playing the 3. See who he gets to play guard.

-wow, what a frontcourt for seapilots. Just needs a solid backcourt to go with it - can it still be found?

-post defense will be an issue for longtallbrad with Boozer/Boerwinkle, but his group is pretty intriguing otherwise. Good efficiency and rebounding for sure.

-theyard has the perfect squad built around MJ so far. Plus rebounding from three positions, defense everywhere, good usage mix - he has a ton of flexibility to build the rest of the team around them.

-vance's team looks strong as always

-I like what katernberg is doing, but he needs guards, too. Common theme.

-Who knows how this crazy logain thing will work out, but it looks like fun. He's stealing high-defense, high-assist guards from everyone else, lol

Magic is a solid 3 with the super high assist strategy.

Don't think it'll pay off in this league, however.
