btw, who do you think wins that battle... mailman's team, or dwight's squad?

Don't know, there very well matched, should make for some great match-ups though. My final choices were Gervin/Pierce/Carter..took Gervin. Both PP & VC are 23 PER. IMO Gervin had the best stats/$$$.

i don' know... pierce can throw up a lotta shots now with those two window cleaners... he'll hit his rl 3pa's. nice trio working there

An intersting thing is happening in the draft leagues, there is a design being used that is very different from the design I use, and appears to be quite effective at undermining the design I use. This is an interesting form of 'normalization', now I'll adjust to the new challenge..more 'normalization'. This is the only acceptable form of 'normalization'. Maybe we should call it....'competition'. Ya..I hear you knock'n..cmac & elei!!! LOL

Feels right...

  5) eleibowitz - Dennis Rodman, Alonzo Mourning,
21) redsoxbox - Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant,
24) scudmissle - Oscar Robertson, Jason Kidd,

Looks right...

12) banditone - Julius Erving, Bob McAdoo,
15) tarheel1991 - Artis Gilmore, Shawn Marion
19) benhoidal - Magic Johnson, Kevin Garnett

Is right...

9) theyard2 - Shaquille O'Neil, Kevin McHale

Is wrong...

13) jcred5 - Dwayne Wade, Stephen Curry

Is WTF?...

7) smokey57 - Karl Malone, Bill Bridges ... Double-B stands up, shouts, "Hey, Karl, we're gonna be a 1st round team draft pick! cool, huh?"
20) carbonjones - Hakeem Olajuwon, Walt Frazier
Hey Scud - love to hear more on these early evals.  Elaborate more on why Wade and Curry are wrong if you'd be so kind....

well, i'm sort of old school. if you're drafting a dynamic player like wade (usage 35%+), ya kind of need somebody dishing him like crazy. curry is a great player, but his ast rate % is on the low side, especially more now since you drafted marshall and sanders. wade cannot dish to himself. curry's value rises since wade can get him the ball. just seems like u took one steo forward, then one step sideways. but whom am i? u do pretty well in these leagues without me interfering.

malone/bridges/gervin....howard/boerwinkle/pierce....hmmm. looks like someone is shadow drafting me. LOL  go shadow draft scud....
I don't get it?  What do you mean?

I was just tired of getting killed on the boards, and figured with this lineup I better have some threes.

I'm joking. The two teams will have very similar stat lines & usage distribution. I want to see how they match-up, should be ugly ball.

Technically Wade can dish to himself.  The sim counts his assist% even if he is the one shooting.  So with Curry's 22% and Wade's 25, he's is in pretty decent shape.  Maybe a nice combo as Wade's real deficiency is his lackluster 3 point production and Curry's weakness is defense.

good point.  i do like ot hear other opinions, it's how you learn.  I've been wanting to try two high scoring guards with as much defense as possible.  Trade off is assists and I do need to make up in that area.

loved the first three picks....kinda hate the last two...awesome defense but the offense could have been so much better....gasol/humphries would have looked good...squeaky clean too
