I want to try and bring back the fantasy section a little bit here.....it has been dying slowly for a while.

Anyway, NBA draft....I'm willing to discuss inserting wrinkles like a salary cap, drafting for the future, etc.; just let me know. Hopefully we can get 8-10 people...please be reliable if you sign up.

Alright, I'll start this now. I will generate a random order, but WMD automatically gets #1 with Von Wafer as the selection.

Lets just do this to make the best team right now assuming the team plays an entire season, so injuries are somewhat of a concern.

Yes, but it's not current if that makes any sense. Everyone is assumed to be fit when drafted, but teams will be judged as if they team was playing an entire season and then playoffs.

How he doesn't get blocked on every single shot attempt I will never know

Chrono Synclasts
01-24-2012, 01:11 PM
Shawn Marion's shot only works because it is a glitch in the matrix, a la deja vu. The only realexplanation.

I've always been an Allen fan for jumpers. Gallo is nice to watch, but I would watch Ray shoot 1,000 jumpers in practice since it is that enjoyable to see.

Argh.. I wanted Gerald Wallace, and Kevin Martin was my backup plan. This should be fun.

Rob S
01-24-2012, 03:36 PM
K mart and Gerald Wallace were guys I considered with my last 2 picks....well done. Injuries scared me off of both, specifically when deciding between K Mart and Allen. Allen needing less shots was a plus too. K mart is an elite scorer when he's on the floor though.

Wootylicous
01-24-2012, 03:42 PM
Like my starting 5 so far. I wanted Granger at first but happy to land Wallace

TheBoyWonder22
01-24-2012, 03:55 PM
I love my five, looking back, there's probably one other situation I would have preferred. I'm under the impression that I have solid players in Wade and Monroe playing positions that are hard to fill. All I need to do is get some defense in the post and some bench depth and I think on my way to having one of the better teams in this thing.

That wasn't a comment on Jordan, I had to edit my pick and didnt want someone to pick my guy......Jordan is a good player. I think Nene is clearly the better player in a "current" draft, but Jordan is a fine pick....centers are **** nowadays.

PG: Kyle Lowry : Brandon Jennings
SG: Dwyane Wade : DeMar DeRozan
SF: Rudy Cool : Nicolas Batum
PF: Amaré Stoudamire : Tyrus Thomas
C: Greg Monroe : DeAndre Jordan

In terms of starters, I like your backcourt a lot. Lowry is less entrenched and experienced, but I do "buy" him. Wade is obviously one of the best players in the NBA when he is fit. In terms of reserve guards, I don't really like Jennings or DeRozan. Just not my type of players.

For your frontcourt, Rudy Cool is nice at SF obviously. Amare has been abysmal this year, but he is a good starter obviously. I hate Greg Monroe as a starting center in this though. He has potential and has been playing great, but between Amare and Monroe you will get absolutely killed at the basket. Monroe can defend the PF alright, but bigger centers absolutely kill him. In terms of your depth, can't say I love the picks. Jordan I am okay with as he give you that rim protector. Batum is a good player too, but in this draft he just doesn't excite me. Tyrus Thomas I really hate. He's a pretty good defender, but I wouldn't have even drafted him in this.

Your team is decent, but I think it may be better served for a future draft.

I'm trying to get some people to judge this. If nobody wants to I guess we can rank the teams ourselves.

Brodeur mentioned he would consider judging, so this is just a thread where I am going to list all of the roster to make it easier on him. Please refrain from posting here until Brodeur finishes his judging, then we can have some debate.

Brody, feel free to post you comments/rankings here. Just 2 notes: this is a current draft, ignore future potential. Do factor in injuries (basically evaluate the teams as if they were playing an entire season and account for injury prone players accordingly, every player starting the season fit).

Rob S

Roster:

PG: Steve Nash : Ray Felton : Chauncey Billups
SG: Ray Allen : Marcus Thornton
SF: Paul Pierce : Luol Deng : Trevor Ariza
PF: Pau Gasol : David West
C: Dwight Howard : Nene

Depth Chart:

PG: Nash / Felton / Billups
SG: Allen / Thornton / Billups (Ariza when I need a great defender to protect lead)
SF: Pierce / Deng / Ariza

Perimeter D is lacking. In fact, there are really only 3-4 above average defenders on the entire roster, and only one is in the starting lineup. There are a lot of risky players due to age or being a fat PG like Felton. There are also a lot of guys who can hit the 3, but no slashers who can consistently get to the line off the dribble. I'm not a huge fan of this group, but DH12 mixed in with a bunch of guys who can hit 3s could be dangerous.

Yo

PG- Ricky Rubio/Darren Collison
SG- Joe Johnson/Monta Ellis/Anthony Morrow
SF- Lebron James/Shawn Marion
PF- Josh Smith/Luis Scola/Tiago Splitter
C- Marcin Gortat/Anderson Varejao

I love the idea of Ellis as instant offense off the bench. I'm not big on Joe Johnson, but I like the pairing of LeBron and Smoove. The bench isn't great, but you do have the best player in the world. There is a lot of potential of cold streaks with this group though as Rubio, Ellis, Collison, JJ, and sometimes James and Smith, can be extremely inconsistent from the field. Defensively, you should be solid, but nothing special.

Chrono

PG: John Wall- Jeff Teague- Andre Miller
SG: Eric Gordon- JET Terry
SF: Kevin Durant- Jason Richardson
PF: Chris Bosh- Elton Brand
C: Tyson Chandler- Javale McGee- Samuel Dalembert

The great thing about this team is that its third PG could end up more valuable than some other team's first. Miller should be ahead of Teague in the rotation and is an excellent complement to KD. In fact, this team is built very well as Wall/Durant can penetrate, Gordon knock down the open 3, Bosh the 18-footers and mix in a little on the block, and Chandler clean up, play D, and provide leadership. The bench isn't great, but Terry is one of the best NBA 2nd-unit guys of all time, and would likely thrive on a team with Durant - I believe their games would intersect beautifully. I like the chemistry of this team and the only two risks are McGee going full ****** (but a good contingency plan with Sammy D) or Gordon injuries (which might make you less deep and would likely just force you to start JRich at the 2 and play Durant more - not terrible). It's not a great defensive team but Chandler makes everyone better on that end and Wall's got potential to disrupt other PGs.



WMD

PG - Chris Paul / Mike Conley / Lou Williams
SG - Steph Curry / Gerald Henderson
SF - Paul George / Caron Butler
PF - LaMarcus Aldridge / Paul Millsap / Brandon Bass
C - Roy Hibbert / DeMarcus Cousins

Chris Paul makes everyone around him better but I don't like Curry much at the 2 and he'd have to be a lot more aggressive getting his shot. The offense would presumably run through the guys down low, which doesn't really fit CP3 or Curry as much as an up-tempo running style. The swingmen on this team also just aren't that good compared to some of the guys they'll have to match up against - especially on D (Curry on Kobe?). Not enthralled with this group.

BoyWonder

PG: Kyle Lowry : Brandon Jennings
SG: Dwyane Wade : DeMar DeRozan : Jamal Crawford
SF: Rudy Cool : Nicolas Batum
PF: Amaré Stoudamire : Tyrus Thomas
C: Greg Monroe : DeAndre Jordan : Omer Asik

I love the PG duo and Rudy *** but nothing stands out beyond that. Amare is now a shell of himself and struggles in anything but D'Antoni's high-tempo SSOL where he's the focal point. He and Monroe are the opposite types of bigs. Wade's injury prone and a little overrated and there aren't any proven glue guys on this roster. I do love Jordan as a backup C though.

Woot

PG - Russell Westbrook/Ty Lawson/Brandon Knight
SG - Kobe Bryant/Marshon Brooks/Brandon Knight
SF - Gerald Wallace/Lamar Odom
PF - Zach Randolph/Thaddeus Young/Carl Landry
C - Al Horford/Joakim Noah

Talent-wise, this group is right up there with any other team, especially in the backcourt. Noah is also a great backup C and Wallace is an excellent player for these types of drafts because he doesn't need the ball to be effective. The problem is, Randolph and Kobe might work, but with a PG like Westbrook, there aren't enough good shots to go around. I might actually prefer Lawson starting and Westbrook as the 2nd unit PG. I'm just not very high on Westbrook I guess. I would actually like this team A LOT if Lawson was the starter and RW came off the bench.

Scotty

PG: Deron Williams, Jrue Holliday
SG: Kevin Martin, Arron Afflalo
SF: Andre Iguodala, Dorrell Wright, Chase Budinger
PF: Blake Griffin, Kris Humphries
C: Al Jefferson, Andrew Bogut, Emeka Okafor

Blake Griffin isn't a complete player yet and was likely drafted over guys who would have been better picks. But I get it. A Deron-Afflalo-Iggy trio would be beastly on D, and I do like the way Deron complements Iggy/K-Mart. Griffin's inside game isn't great yet, but you could feed it to Jefferson and Bogut. A lot of missed FTs from this group might doom you. This one is tough to envision but I think it might work - watching Williams with the ******** Nets every night is sad because he's so much better than a guy like Westbrook who gets W after W in OKC.

Docta

PG: Derrick Rose / Jose Calderon
SG: Manu Ginobili / Tony Allen
SF: Danny Granger / Landry Fields / James Johnson
PF: Serge Ibaka / David Lee
C: Dirk Nowitzki / Chris Kaman / Bismack Biyombo

Awkward putting Ibaka at PF and Dirk but whatever. If you had backup PG that I liked I'd rate this the best bench in the whole thing. Tony Allen is a GREAT player and David Lee is a very good second unit guy in terms of efficeincy. The key to this team is two things: 1) Can Dirk re-capture his elite form or is his age catching up to him? 2) Will Granger embrace his role as a spot-up shooter/Iggyish defensive presence. Those questions are huge but if answered, this team could win it all. Good mix of guys who don't always need the ball, glue guys, and true superstars.

Fenikz

Tony Parker - Kyrie Irving - Rodrigue Beaubois
Tyreke Evans - Wesley Matthews
Danilo Gallinari - Wilson Chandler
Kevin Love - Tim Duncan - Taj Gibson
Andrew Bynum - Brook Lopez

There are just way too many missed shots here. The only efficient shooting player is Parker and maybe Bynum (who is obviously a huge risk in his own right). Defensively this group would be scatter-brained as none of them have ever really played it at a high level besides Parker. This would be the type of group that could go out on any given night and shoot the lights out or could get a 1-12 by Gallo, or a 6-20 by Reke, or a 5-17 by Love, foul trouble by Bynum, and be screwed.

STRIP

PG: Rajon Rondo/Jarrett Jack
SG: James Harden/OJ Mayo
SF: Carmelo Anthony/Kyle Korver
PF: Kevin Garnett/Carlos Boozer/Ryan Anderson
C: Marc Gasol/Andrea Bargnani/Kendrick Perkins

PG duo = perfect. SG duo = Both guys seem to like coming off the bench more but I love both players. The offense would run through Melo and he's a world-class scorer - good. And he'd work extremely well with Garnett and Gasol. This team would win it all for me EASILY if it had just one or two BRUISERS on its bench in the front-court rather than a bunch of finesse players. The big guys are talented but a defensive presence would have been better. I guess Perkins is that. I can just see this group playing well together IF Melo plays well with Rondo, which I think he can.



I was harsh on purpose - focusing mostly on the flaws of each team because obviously every team is stacked and would compete for the title in the real NBA.

*And as you can tell there are some guys I'm just not that high on (Westbrook, Griffin). And some guys who I absolutely love (backup bigs who play D, Iggy/Tony Allen-type players). Obviously my rankings are subjective and I based it on how I think these groups would work together which is why even with a star player, I may not have ranked a team that high. Projected Chemistry (in my own head) based in part on how guy's games complement each other, defense, having guys who can contribute without always needing the ball, how the second-unit would look, having scorers who may get a lot of points but aren't really that efficient - these were main factors besides just the pure talent collection aspect (because let's face it - every team is insane when you look at it that way).

Here are my rankings:

10) Boywonder
9) Fenikz
8) Rob S
7) WMD
6) Scotty
5) Woot

FINAL FOUR
Chrono 4, Yo 1
STRIP 4, Docta 3

Chrono wins IF John Wall steps his game up huge against Rondo...


He doesn't! STRIP 4, Chrono 3!!!!!!!!!!!! Carmelo Anthony MVP.

Damn everyone hates my team. I don't get it, I understand the hatred for my bugs, but I compensate for their lack of D with my stud defensive play from my bench defenders. I feel I easily have the best perimeter D aside from maybe Woot. Plus my team would be a blocking, rebounding, steal machine. You guys are gonna have to explain how two guys completely blow up my team.

I feel my team is at least top 3 all around I will do rankings too later

Brodeur

Your team would be higher if Noah was starting. And Rob, I put you at two despite saying those things so I don't think I'm underrating your team.

02-02-2012, 04:15 PM
I think Rob has a top 3 team. This front court is unstoppable, and they got the shooters and savvy veterans to take advantage of it.

02-02-2012, 04:19 PM
Well move them around as you wish Horford can play both position at an elite level. If I put Horford to PF, Noah playing C and Lawson at starting PG with Kobe and Wallace also where would you rank this team ?

Brodeur
02-02-2012, 04:27 PM
Probably 4th.

Docta
02-02-2012, 04:32 PM
Aw, why don't you like Calderon? Can shoot the 3, and even leads the league in AST/TO ratio.

And how does Brodeur rank me last, but I make the final four in gpngc's?

Because I don't like how it's made up. Manu is injury prone, Danny Granger is having a really, really bad season and is getting worse and worse, your frontcourt is ******* weird and doesn't work, and outside of David Lee/Tony Allen, I don't care for your bench.

Granger's just off to a slow start. He just has to get his stroke back. In the last 3 years, he's 2nd to Ray Allen in 3's made. I do regret taking Fields though. Would have taken Thaddeus Young if I remembered. Johnson is just there for his defense.

i just wanna throw it out there (mainly at brody in the other thread) Humphries is averaging a double double. yeah. it's true

I'm also pissed at my over-selecting of blake. I'm not even that big a fan of him. just blanked on other guys

When I was up in the 2nd Round, I thought I was gonna have to pick Blake. I didn't really want to, and I was trying to find someone else to pick.. and then LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE appeared. True story.

Some pretty crazy variations between Brody and gpngc. it's amazing how much opinions can vary. I will do some ranking tm as well if I get a chance. This draft actually went really well though.....best non forum mock fantasy draft in a while methinks.

Every team is stacked. It's a matter of preference. And it's still a sport - there's no correct argument or ranking. If these fictional teams ever played it would come down to performance - not some pre-covnceived quantifiable value that each player has in conjunction with each other on paper. That's the beauty of sports. Predictions are fun, but ultimately worthless.
