mikee: M. Malone, K. McHale, S. Nash, J. Harden, S. Dalembert, L. Powe, M. Landsberger
I'm a firm believer in the philosphy of "there's never too many rebounds", but I feel like you may have made some sacrifices that you shouldn't have made in the name of rebounds and efg%. Your overall defense just seems a bit too weak. Sure McHale is a 90, and Malone is an 80, but your other 3 starters range from bad to so-so. It doesn't improve when your backups are in either. Also, while Nash is a great ast% building block, he can't do it single-handed. Yes, I know Harden chips in, but it doesn't seem to be enough, and there's a lot of time when Harden won't be on the floor. For that matter, Nash doesn't play all that much either. Still, the fact that you accumulated a lot of good shooters and a lot of boards won't be denied.
superrobb: K. Malone, O. Robertson, D. Marshall, B. Bridges, D. Christie, G. Hill, K. Hughes
Marshall in the third is a steal in my opinion. Shoots treys (and makes them), play great defense, and will usually have a rebounding advantage at SF. Overall, your team plays solid D, will grab its share of boards, and hit 3s. Your bench seems a bit weak, especially when in Hughes' best reb/fg%/def season, he has more pfs than points. Yikes.
benhoidal: T. Duncan, A. Hardaway, T. Boerwinkle, B. Barry, C. Mullin, J. Przybilla, B. Davis
This team is hard to get a read on without knowing which Duncan and Mullin he plans on using. In any case, this team ought board well, though not necessarily win the battle of the boards overall, play adequate defense, and score buckets. Barry gives you 3s, Mullin may help with that. This is one of the first teams I've seen with ast% close to my comfort level, thanks to contributions from all members of the starting 5. One concern would be Boerwinkle's lack of long minutes, but Przybilla ought to cover that niche well.
iccoachb: D. Mutombo, S. Kemp, M. Cheeks, P. Pierce, R. Bell, J. Dumars, C. Andersen
I feel like this team has the potential to be great, if the seasons were selected with care. However, keeping in mind coachb's rep for messing these things up... he probably has another lottery season coming. Who knows though, he might surprise us all. Wait... coachb... Coach B... is this Mike Brown? Never mind, he'll be stuck in the lottery for the forseeable future.
robocoach: D. Robinson, K. Love, B. Jones, F. Lever, J. Calderon, S. Novak, A. Robertson
Love and Calderon are two of my favorite current RL players. While their defense is spotty, they make up for it in other ways. The team also will help cover the defensive weaknesses. This team should dominate the boards. While the addition of Novak gives the team some needed 3's, I think some cover for the 2700 missing minutes in the post was a lot more needed.
thisredbox: A. Gilmore, K. Garnett, K. Bryant, M. Cooper, G.T. Johnson, H. Catchings, J. High
I think the seasons you select for Gilmore and Kobe could make or break your season. Putting Coop at the point is gutsy, but it might pay off. You should have enough ast% anyway to make it flow. Like any good redbox team, it plays stingy defense, but not as much as seasons past. A dearth of 3s might be a problem, but there are still 5 players we don't know about. Maybe they can dig something up.
