I know that it looks like I left my PDX pal sly with a gift at 21. I just didn't know if I could pull off an ash and get enough good usage later on to make it work. But that was probably a big mistake. Big Ben is a defensive monster and is the best low usage PF other than Rodman IMO. To tell you the truth I was kind of upset that mikee1 took Duncan and I thought for sure that I would get him at # 20. But it sounds like ash would have ruined that plan anyway  Magic at least provides positional dominance at PG although along with tons of turnovers. 
Thanks Vance. Christmas came early for me. Hopefully a happy new year awaits in the 2nd!

malone is flaunting league rules in the draft thread by revealing my potential 2nd round pick and I believe he should be penalized by losing his 2nd round pick.


or he should be forced to have Michael Ray Richardson on his team, which is admittedly a much harsher penalty, but one that may be needed to curb his devil-may-care, rulebreaking ways.

Boot him.

Oh and I'll take the Under.

maglor going with the uber-D squad...  He'll dish out some grief no doubt, though I don't know if it will ultimately pay off.  Of course, it's way too early to know anything yet.  Well, almost anything (cough..pennsylvania...cough)

Okay fellas go ahead and rip me a new one please. I just took Jason Kidd to pair with Magic Johnson!

I like it!

sly Marion was #2 on my list. Never have quite been able to make it work w/ him, though, and have seen others do well with DWade so I'll give him a shot, mediocre efg% and all.

Whether it will pay out or not will be determined by who is left when it is my time to draft again. What I find interesting is that ashamael has made same 2 picks I made in the last draft. Perhaps he will teach me what I did wrong. Picking Larry Nance over Shawn Marion may hurt me, but I haven't seen Hakeem fall to 24th before, and temptation of pairing Hakeem with Nance was too great to overcome.

those two picks are where the teams' similarities will end (though I will be using the same versions of those two guys you used).

I'm a nice guy and all but there way absolutely no way I was going to leave J Kidd on the board for mikee to snap up to pair with Duncan. I figured ash wouldn't take Kidd since he already had a low usage player in Russell. What's up with ash is he having a, "jethroegg moment " or two here???

not sure I get the jethro comment.

    Name Team Pos Usage% 2pt%# 3pt%# eFG% OReb% DReb% Ast% Stl% Blk%
Bill Russell 63-64 Celtics C 14.8 44.0 0.0 43.3 12.2 32.4 11.3 1.3 3.9
Oscar Robertson 62-63 Royals PG 23.6 55.3 34.6 54.3 5.9 14.2 22.7 1.8 1.1

7180 minutes.  100% at all five positions.

100% was taking him if he was available.
Kidd
McHale
Marion was my wishlist top 3.

Jethro was an old timer player lover. He always took a couple of really good old timers in the first and second round. I actually like the picks except for Russell's 44 EFG% and Oscar's turnovers per 48 minutes. But as you have pretty much pointed out now you have 2 positions practically 100% covered.

Robertson's tov% is 15.4% - not bad for a point guard.
