Jason Kidd
Kevin Martin
Lebron James
Andray Blatche
Marc Gasol

Well thats not very nice hahah
That IS very nice. It's a backhand compliment- the very reaction you should be looking for. Was not that excited by the Gasol pick, but Kidd is right on target. Good efficiency around him which he will further max out. Not sure about 60 wins, but definitely top 3.

In other words, FU.     
Yes, I didn't take it personal and in fact did take it more as a compliment. That was just my attempt at being a smartass.

So glad I traded out of the 10th round, I'm almost done with this draft!

I got nervous about minutes here at the end and added Foye and Marcus Morris, now I can take whatever is left at the end and have 1,000 or so filler minutes sitting there at the end, but its WAY better to have an extra 1000 than be 1000 short.

im sitting at 17.3k mins with 2 picks left.....could be verrrry ugly depending on who you guys leave me with

I am at 17k with 4 picks left.  Mostly covered in the light areas as my first 4 picks were two rebounders with big minutes and two assists guys with big minutes...  all with 2 points usage or more.  Hoping this allows me to pick some decent guys in the remaining 4 (although I traded out of the 9th).

Oddly my 8th pick has the 3rd most minutes on my team while also not being a stiff.

I hate my team.

Maybe not the best shooting team ever...  but it does a number of things well.

Neglecting my ODL eval duties just a little longer to take a look at this 12-13 league and lock down my own rotation.

What an f’n marathon that draft was, but on the bright side no one has ANY excuse not to get their team into the league within let’s say the next 2-3 days. No bench decisions to make; and I don’t think there are many players with a split 12-13 season where the fewer minutes version would be the proper choice.

Maybe we should have 1-2 days to make any final trades in case there are a few teams that are below 19,000 minutes, IMO if anyone is below 19,300 then they are royally screwed.

I personally am in serious need of more rebounding, and I drafted an extra 1,000 minutes that I am willing to part with, but I’m not sure if DH is ok with a few last minute deals.

I posted some data about the RL 12-13 season earlier in this thread (what now seems like months ago btw).  Two things I kept out of my post on purpose: (1) you realize that the 12-13 NBA season averaged more 3pt attempts and had more 3-pointers made than any season EVER in the history of the NBA. It’s the only season ever with more than SEVEN 3’s per team per game at 7.16; and it’s the only one with more than 19 three point attempts, at 19.95. Of course that also means it had the largest percentage of perimeter shots in history as well at 24.25% And (2) this was one of the lowest (and I think it’s the lowest) number of FTA’s attempted in a season at .092 per minute per player or about 22.08 per team per game, I believe the only other season below .010 was the 11-12 season at .093 (but this makes sense because players are far less likely to get fouled on a 3pa). The pf rate of .082 (11-12 was .081) is also one of the lowest ever, so FTA’s in this league will be harder to come by than most of us have seen (interested if any of you guys saved a data file from your 11-12 sim, because FTA and pf’s were very similar last year, I’d love to know what we are in store for here.)

For me personally there was plenty of time to make trades already. But if dh does allow it, there needs to be a hard cap on the date and time. For instance, if both parties have not posted and agreed to trad on forums by 6pm Tue, trade is void and enter the team you picked.  Just my opinion, but I think most of us are ready to get started and see what we have. Unless someone wants to give me Lebron or Durant, then please void this comment :)

6/24/2013 11:22 AM
I think everyone's teams suck.
6/24/2013 11:47 AM
