So here is my picking logic up to this point.
In the first round I selected Ray Allen. It is true that his performance last year is what sparked my intrigue, though I think he could be warranted a selection in the first round, I'll admit to taking him high. Though to my defense he is typically a perfect guy to take on the turn of the board picks and although Sappy and Glen were probably going another way, I couldn't take that chance since I had him targeted from the start. Obviously I am using his best season, so that gives me:
3129 Minutes, an obvious choice for starting Shooting Guard, though he is also 100% at PG and SF (he clearly won't play in the front court)
24.5% Usage, so a Tier 3 guy, taking up 4 points
The biggest intangibles are the 55.7 eFG%, 202 three's, though he should crush that total and what I would consider low turnover and foul numbers from a starting Shooting Guard taking up 38 minutes. Do I expect him to get over five assists a game? To be honest I do. Also he has an 88.8 FT%, note this as a common theme.
In the second round I could have gone big, but I am not going the route of big men scoring. Kevin Love got taken a pick before my selection, so I'd like to think he was on my radar, but ultimately choosing Chauncey Billups seemed appropriate.
2928 Minutes, my starting Point Guard. Solid defense, he'll only be playing at the Point.
23% Usage, a second Tier 3 guy, so add on another 4 points.
31.7 Ast%, low turnovers and low fouls for a starting point guard, who also has 182 three's, over 450 FTM and an 89.4% mark from the charity stripe, common theme.
In the third round I couldn't resist taking James Harden, he can play three positions, but will be a perfect sixth man.
2418 Minutes, my sixth man of the year candidate
21.6 Usage, a Tier 2 guy, but a high end Tier 2.
142 three's made, low turnovers/low fouls committed. 388 FTM and 84.5% effective. I guess I'll mention the 58.2 eFG%
In round four I guess I should have taken a big man, but I didn't, I'd rather have some fun.
So Peja comes to the team with 24% Usage, giving me another Tier 3 guy in the starting five. low turnovers, low fouls and 240 three's made.
A 56.6 eFG%, 394 FTM and a 92.7% mark.
768 three's made, 1809 taken.
1595/1796 FTM/FTA = 88.8%
698 fouls committed
Now I'll scoop up the offensive boards and efficient big men to complete the team.
