I see it this way..the def follows the use%, regardless of position. Your high def center will be on karl in either position. The guy's in the DDL are up against the same type of offense. If you hold karl down gervin will gladly go 35-40pts on you and visa versa. Then the BC is a moderate usage pairing, on the chance you can hold malone & gervin down the BC will kill you. Scud has the #2 def in the ddl and is one of two teams that can hold off both my shooters at the same time, he may go 4-4 against me, he's currently 2-4. I may be using the term 'spacing' wrong..I'm refering to my usage distribution when I say 'spacing'. I shutter at the thought of these guy's on the same team too, but it just may work out. This is 'Twelve Monkey's' on PED's. Lastly - Don't listen scud, he just doesn't want to share a division with this damn team......again. lol
What do you base this on??????????
High D centers are not automatically guarding Malone if they are only 90% at PF. If Mailman is playing the 4 he is rarely going to be guarded by Mutombo, Wilt, Cap, Robinson, and others I mentioned prior. Now all of those high D guys that were 90% at PF get to guard Malone as do all of the high D guys that are 98% and greater at both the 4 and 5 (Russell, Dream, Duncan, Wallace, and others). The sim is all about maximizing matchups and overmaximizing your advantages. That is why no one plays LeBron at SF, and the 91-92 Rodman is always a SF although he likely played 10% or less of his time at that position in real life. It used to be you need at least 10.5% usage and we all know that number to be WAY higher now. Felonius has always said that the proper number of rebounds to shoot for is MORE, and it is now likely even higher than that. (That was a joke...see)
Why do you think Gervin is going to go off for 35-40 points if Malone is having a bad game? The sim algorithm doesn't say "Hey, Mailman is cold tonight lets give the ball to Iceman."
Oh and you LOVE to talk about floor spacing, but Iceman and Mailman both play a game that is 50% or greater from midrange, and both players then opt to go to the paint after that. Where is your floor spacing? Bill Bridges? He just flip flops the midrange and paint thing where he is about 55-60% paint and 35% midrange.
