C. Paul (Even) , H. Olajuwon (18)
Besides LeBron, Paul is the best PG in the sim, right? The problem is the mentality seems to be grab your bigs and then get your guards later for the most part. I've always liked Hakeem, but find it hard to justify a 1st or 2nd pick on the season I'd like to use.
W. Unseld, J. Calderon, C. Ceballos
I like all 3 of the players. My favorite add here is Calderon, but have some major concerns on how he fits. If Paul and Calderon play alongside each other, that's ideal. If Calderon backs him up, I have some Usage concerns. Otherwise, it looks like a good balance.
C. Gatling (), J.Moon ()
This should be enough usage to cover for Calderon and Moon. Always fun to see who ends up with Gatling.
K. Durant (3), A. Hardaway (10)
Remember all that talk about "bigs first"? Not in the midwest I guess. Some NBA talking head, I don't remember who, said this basketball is a "GAWRD'SGAME", and it seems like the midwest agrees. Good start with these two guys.
B. McAdoo, M. Miller, B. Bridges
Durant and Penny feel like such a freat start, and they are, but I think these guys my have a tough time on the glass. Penny can play the point, but it might make more sense to back up Durant with him leaving a lot of PG minutes to be found.
B. Bowen (), R. Beaubois ()
Penny maybe, i guess, now has a backup and Bowen and Miller should be a cost effective platoon.
C. Barkley (1), J. Kidd (10)
Really like how ash Is drafting in this division so far. No "bigs" yet, but a nice REB advantage with these Suns.
P. Pierce, A. Bynum, S. Dalambert
Glad this team is far away from me. Bynum is a stud. Pierce is a great fit here. Dalambert has a couple of seasons that could help any team in this league. Really solid, as expected.
D. Gadzuric (), N. Mohammed ()
That 04 Gadz season really leaps off the page. Interested to see what Nazr season you are using. Lots of choices with great OREB.
K. Garnett (13), L. Nance (27)
Not to pick on Robocoach, but I don't love the Nance pick, but we will see how it shakes out.
M. Blaylock, Z. Beaty, P. Stojakovic
As the previous Mookie owner, I like the Peja pick here. I think that really frees you up to choose which Mookie season you want, rather then feeling forced to take the heavier 3's season. Beaty should be fine, but really starting to put big rebound expectations on "cagey"
A. Robertson (), G. Oden ()
Good job finding two more guys to fit your team needs. pretty balanced overall.
D. Howard (1), B. Walton (3)
While I don't love Nance after Garnett, this Howard/Walton tandem is going to cause a problem for this division. Scary to think one of these guys will be on the court the whole game, if not both.
H. Grant, K. Faried, D. Walker
Love Horace Grant. I think he is a great value. If I get a high draft pick next season don't be surprised if I get Rodman early then come back and grab Grant in the 40's. I remember people going nuts for these Faried season and the I feel like people forgot about him. another solid pick that leaves Nate wiggle room to take the player he wants next. Then we get to Walker. That top season does provide more DREB. IDK about that pick, its important, I think, to have an identity, but maybe could have gone somewhere else with that pick.
R. Westbrook (), D. Scott ()
It's really tough to mess up the first two rounds, almost impossible. These late rounds is where you make or break your team. With that, I think both these guys are what this team needs. Some people may scoff at the Westbrook pick, but it really reminds me of the T-Mac season. I think he will a stud on this team.
M. Ginobili (14), S. Kemp (28)
They both look like reaches at first take, but I like Kemp; he belongs in the 2nd round. Another team i'm keeping an eye out for.
B. Barry, M. Price, C. Andersen,
Barry and Birdman are both great small usage guys. Mark Price is a guy that seems to slip through my fingers or change my mind about each year. Great picks, but we will now have to wait and see if Kemp and Manu is enough to carry a team. I really wanted Kemp this year and just lost game 7 in the finals against a Manu, so it is possible.
R. Tarpley, P. Milisap
I don't have much experience with Tarpley, but have really found Millsap to be a nice ODL player.
