Anyone want to do one? Im looking for around 8 people to draft the teams and 3 people to judge it. There will be 12 rounds unless interest starts to die down then we can cut it to 10 or less. This will be for the best team over a 5 year span. Injuries are wiped clean but injury proneness needs to be considered. Current NBA players no rookies

Ravens1991

Since this is for the next 5 years I say guys who have entered the 2012 draft are eligible. So you can take Davis, Robinson etc. Anyone against this?

I disagree......too much projection/volatility with voting. I would prefer just the current NBA players for a period of 5 years.

We need to clarify the above. Injuriezzz as well....do we take them into account?

Ravens1991
05-22-2012, 07:55 PM
I say injuries dont count. IDK I tihnk it would be wierd seeing Derrick Rose slip far just because of his injury. How do you guys feel about injuries not being taken into account

Docta
05-22-2012, 08:07 PM
I'm in, and I don't think injuries should be accounted for.

WMD
05-22-2012, 08:08 PM
I'll join if there's still room.

I think injuries should be taken into account. If it's over the next 5 years, taking someone like Derrick Rose or Amare or whoever will be a little risky because of injury concerns. Get a good backup just in case.

Rob S
05-22-2012, 08:12 PM
I say injuries dont count. IDK I tihnk it would be wierd seeing Derrick Rose slip far just because of his injury. How do you guys feel about injuries not being taken into account

Not like that......I say we wipe current injuries. Like, injury proneness....think Kevin Martin or Andrew Bynum. In other words, do we assume a player will play 82 games/year if we draft them?

yo123
05-22-2012, 08:15 PM
Current injuries should be wiped if they don't have any danger of lingering in the future, but if they do I don't think we can ignore those.

Injury proneness should definitely be taken into account.

Rob S

Injury proneness should definitely be taken into account.

This is kinda how I feel as well. This also makes me feel even more strongly that rookies shouldn't be included though.....we don't know how any of these guys' bodies will hold up over 82 games. Hell, if we did this 5 years ago, Greg Oden would have went pretty damn high.

yo123
05-22-2012, 08:23 PM
I'd be fine either way with rookies. I definitely see your point but it would add another level of strategy.

Rob S
05-22-2012, 08:58 PM
Let's just make a call on the rooks and get this going. Docta and WMD bring us to 8.

fenikz

ill do this, if im not around text me 623.734.3206

i vote 1 rookie

I will be able to check basically all nights. I don't know what my days are going to look like yet, but I will do my best.

WMD
05-22-2012, 09:16 PM
I vote no rookz.

Rob S
05-22-2012, 09:38 PM
If we are including rookies, I think putting a limit on them is dumb. That said, I still vote to not include them at all.

Ravens1991
05-22-2012, 10:09 PM
ok forget rookies and I think current injuries should be wiped out but consistent injury proness like Bynum,Nene etc. and you cant do something like take Oden be like oh he is injury free so he is the best center or something stupid like that. should be taken into account especially when it comes to drafting your bench. No rookies just an idea I had but it seems like no one really into it. I will bump this to 10 ppl due to the interest of reliable posters on it. I am waiting for metsox to answer me so far its.

Yeah i always think last is better especially for football. I hate being in the middle considering its basketball. But i wasnt going to throw the draft order for me.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 10:42 PM
I'm not complaining to get a 3x MVP, but i reaaally love KD lol.

Ravens1991
05-22-2012, 10:43 PM
yea we all do. Its good vs evil but LeBron is so sick.

Brodeur

You got the better player though.

Ravens1991
05-22-2012, 10:47 PM
Im thinking for the judging we have 3 judges rank the teams 1-8. Then we add the scores together and who ever has the lowest score wins.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 10:50 PM
I say it should be like the heisman voting. rank the best five and award points accordingly. with brief explanations on why one team is better than the other.

WMD
05-22-2012, 10:52 PM
I think we should just let me win.

fenikz
05-22-2012, 10:55 PM
I have considered your proposal and decided to employ my own instead, I intend to win this :)

Rob S
05-22-2012, 10:57 PM
I hope TJ picks soon.....I have to go to bed in 10. I sent a list, but I'm really torn between 3 guys....

yo123

I think its pretty clear who he's going to take.

Rob S
05-22-2012, 10:59 PM
I think its pretty clear who he's going to take.

Well, probably. Maybe not though for obvious reasons. And I factored that in when I said I'm torn between 3 players.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 11:00 PM
Name dropping isn't cool, right..

Rob S
05-22-2012, 11:01 PM
I wouldn't think so

Rob S
05-22-2012, 11:02 PM
Assuming TJ goes with who we think he is going with, I can either make the pick I want to make and likely lose this or I can appease the masses with a safe selection. I'm torn.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 11:03 PM
Well, the guy i ranked third overall is still up there..

Rob S

Oh man, this is just asking for a joke regarding a certain Sacramento King lol.

Well, Ravens has my list. I'm off to bed.

Brodeur

Pretty early for John Salmons.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 11:28 PM

I was thinking Andres Nocioni

I dont know who everyone had ranked 3rd but...

Torn ACL Derrick Rose, nice!

I know who Rob is taking, and Ravens also has his list so his pick should be up any minute now.

05-22-2012, 11:30 PM

Didnt we decide that injuries were a non factor?

Injuries are wiped clean but injury proness will be considered.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 11:31 PM
Lol that's who i would have taken, so don't sweat it. Rose has a history of being a little injury prone so that may hurt a little bit, depends on the judges.

Andrew Bynum here was a shock to me, though lol.

Brodeur
05-22-2012, 11:32 PM
Also, can I be a judge so I can laugh at Rose being taken with a torn ACL?

tjsunstein
05-22-2012, 11:35 PM
Injuries are wiped clean but injury proness will be considered.

What about bitchass proness? Bynums doesnt give a ****, Lebron made the DECISION to be bitchass, Dwight Howard is wasting another year of his career in Olando because of fear of negative perception by the general NBA fans basically. That spells bitchass in caps across his head. Durant and I are cool, though.

tjsunstein
05-22-2012, 11:38 PM
Also, can I be a judge so I can laugh at Rose being taken with a torn ACL?

Simply put, no. You don't understand how long 5 years is and you're already buased against my team. If you really wanted to prove your awesome humor and wit you would have participated and drafted a better team than MetSox since you understand the game better than him. But hey, do you man.

Ravens1991
05-22-2012, 11:42 PM
damn i hated the spot I was in anyway WMD is up

WMD
05-22-2012, 11:43 PM
I didn't think i'd be up so quickly.. Sheesh.

MetSox17
05-22-2012, 11:44 PM
I had Kevin Love pretty high up, i really like his potential for the next five years.

Ravens1991
05-22-2012, 11:45 PM
yea me too and even though I have several players rated higher overall its just I figured big>>>>small and went with Love. that is why i took so long

Brodeur
05-22-2012, 11:54 PM

It doesn't have anything to do with biasness. It's just really hard for a guy of his skillset to come back from a torn ACL with the same abilities as before.

Docta
05-23-2012, 12:51 AM
It takes about 2 years to fully recover from a torn ACL, and the draft is for the next 5 years, so it works out for Rose. Though, if he plays a lot next season (which Thibs will most definitely do), it could elongate the recovery time.

Rob S
05-23-2012, 05:54 AM
I think it's quite obvious I overdrafted Bynum. I wasn't going to get him in the 2nd though, so whatever. It was him or Love or 1 other for me and size wins out.

tjsunstein

Fenikz should get a little more time since he's got back to back picks, plus it's only 10:30 there.

tjsunstein
05-23-2012, 12:26 PM

I have no problem with this. Its a little unfair with the time zones.

I tihnk FEnikz had enough time. Its 12:23 over there. I got Prince pick I will post that up

I dont like skipping people round 1. I am guessing Fenikz will not be pleased.

Ravens1991
05-23-2012, 01:39 PM
yea but I posted here it starts at 12 est and he didnt send a list, then I texted him no response we can wait IDC i just figured we should go.

Rob S
05-23-2012, 01:45 PM
I just think because it's Fenikz who is normally reliable plus time zone issues plus being his first 2 picks it would be prudent to just give it some time.

Ravens1991
05-23-2012, 01:45 PM
ok ya im cool with that idc.

WMD
05-23-2012, 02:07 PM

Really good pick with Irving, I had my eye on him for my next pick.

Ravens1991
05-23-2012, 04:53 PM
yea i was inches away from taking a PG like Paul with my first pick but I knew the depth at PG I would be able to get Irving or Rondo w/ my second pick. So I went w/ Love who I love at PF. Pick and rolls and pick and pops Irving to love will be sick. It pained me to take Irving over Wall but it was the right pick judging Love.

MetSox17

He'd put up something like 10-27 for 25 points and 11 rebounds. You know, your classic Demarcus Cousins game.

It's not like he was athletic to begin with. Its potentially a bigger problem for Rose.

Brodeur
05-23-2012, 06:37 PM
His skillset is built to be fine after an injury like that. He's still going to be an insanely creative passer and a good point guard to lead an offense.

Docta
05-23-2012, 08:15 PM
Lawson was a reach IMO. The PG class is stacked so unless you get one of the elites, you should probably wait on picking one.

yo123
05-23-2012, 08:28 PM
You're a reach.

Brodeur
05-23-2012, 08:28 PM
He took Monroe okay, Docta knows what's up.

yo123
05-23-2012, 08:30 PM
Personally I see a big drop off after Lawson, but that's just me. I'm not sure where he thinks its so deep after him, I think there is 1 or 2 more good PG's before you're getting into guys who are pretty meh.

prock
05-23-2012, 08:32 PM
Lawson was a big drop off from the guy right above him actually, RUBIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Ravens1991
05-23-2012, 08:33 PM
There is a PG better then both of them still on the board.

Rob S
05-23-2012, 08:33 PM
I think there are 2.

Brodeur
05-23-2012, 08:35 PM
There is a PG better then both of them still on the board.

He isn't better than Lawson.

yo123
05-23-2012, 08:38 PM
There is a PG better then both of them still on the board.

I hope you're not talking about who I think you're talking about.

Y'all really didn't watch Lawson in that Lakers series did you? That series would have been over after 5 without him.

Ravens1991
05-23-2012, 08:52 PM
it is probably my homerism and considering the 5 year span thing.

yo123
05-23-2012, 08:55 PM
it is probably my homerism and considering the 5 year span thing.

This is probably getting pretty close to name dropping, but I do like him, probably more than most. But Lawson is better than him now by a good amount and he's 24 so the timespan helps him as well.

Rob S
05-23-2012, 08:56 PM
We are well past name dropping already.....it's quite obvious who you guys are talking about.

prock
05-23-2012, 08:57 PM

Tony Parker had a case for the MVP this season. One of the biggest reasons, if i not the biggest reason why the Spurs are destroying **** right now.

Lets just try and curtail discussions regarding players from now on. Obviously, we are well past that point with the current debate, but lets avoid it in the future.

Tony Parker is great. I dont buy that he had a case for MVP though. He is great though and was a solid pick where you nabbed him.

05-23-2012, 09:05 PM
Someone with Kevin Love as their PF.

Fair enough. But the point remains.

Ravens1991
05-23-2012, 09:18 PM
yeah i was just giving you a hard time I know what you mean. The 5 year span is what throws it off. Plus I needed a elite defensive center to make up for Love D weakness. PLus he will be able to set great picks for Kyrie

Docta
05-23-2012, 11:53 PM
Regarding the PG discussion.. Parker was definitely a MVP candidate. Duncan isn't the best player on the team anymore, and leading them to the #1 seed over the Thunder is pretty impressive.

EDIT: Forget this fact. Twitter failed me on that one. But he's still good for the next 5 years since he isn't really a physical player.

Pau and Bosh really fell quite a bit.

Yeah, I was surprised Bosh was still there for me.

MetSox17
05-24-2012, 03:14 PM
Both known for not being so tough. Pau will be a 20/10 for a few more years so he gave me solid value. Afflalo is also a stud.

PG: Tony Parker
SG: Arron Afflalo
SF: Lebron James

Yeah it was between Batum and Gallinari for me. I took Batum mainly because I am hoping he ends up in Washington next year.

Bosh had to get good at trolling interviews because he's never the one actually being interviewed.

You wouldn't be laughing if your team was paying Villanueva $8 Million and Ben Gordon $12 Million.

Also, I assume MetSox can pick.

Zach Randolph is a center now?

But yeah, I have a lot of options for my big men. Horford and Monroe can play both, so it doesn't really matter. Randolph did play some center when they had Arthur though.

Yeah. I agree with no clock. I don't think people will lose interest. If they do, they get Derek Fisher.

they will,without a clock this draft is dead

Sorry guys, my internet just went down and i have an extremely busy weekend of work and family stuff. I will keep up, but it'll be strictly through my phone. I'm for whatever yall wanna decide collectively as far as the clock goes.

To avoid loading the selection page, i take Avery Bradley.

He's actually relatively decent now.

Rob S
05-28-2012, 08:55 PM
He's actually relatively decent now.

I haven't check out the sabers for this year, but I know he was pretty much the worst defender in the league last year. I didn't see the Raps much this year, so idk. I find it incredibly doubtful though.

Rob S
05-28-2012, 08:58 PM
The sabers are actually better.....I find it doubtful he has actually improved though. he only played 31 games, so it could easily be an anomaly.

fenikz
05-28-2012, 08:59 PM
DWS says he is the same as he has always been

0.9, 0.4, 0.7, certainly not horrific or anything

Rob S
05-28-2012, 09:02 PM
DWS says he is the same as he has always been

0.9, 0.4, 0.7, certainly not horrific or anything

From his Hollinger write up (I know, not the be all end all, but the stats don't lie in this case and it's easier than drunk me pouring over sabers):

The biggest challenge for Dwane Casey will be getting Bargnani to quit being such a wimp. His defensive stats are absolutely pathetic. Last season the Raptors were 6.45 points per 100 possessions worse with him on the court, while the year before the differential was 9.10. And that's the best set of numbers on his résumé.

Want more? Among centers he was last in both blocks per minute and rebounds, and sixth from the bottom in steals. According to 82games.com, Bargnani was savaged by opposing centers for a 21.1 PER; essentially, an average center became an All-Star at the mere sight of Bargnani.

Wait, it gets worse. Using regularized adjusted plus-minus, Bargnani was the worst defensive big man in the entire league last season. Technically, there are two different ways to do this method -- one here and one here; conveniently, both had Bargnani as the league's worst defensive frontcourt player.

The fact only three centers fouled less frequently gives you some of the cause for that effect -- the dude is barely trying. Nobody expects him to turn into Tarzan down there, but with his mobility he should at least be able to rotate effectively and cut off drives. More often he's on the weak side scratching his beard while an opposing guard is laying the ball in.

There was no reason for this to die. People left phone numbers and PMs are always an option. Once we got through the starting 5, no one cared. And I think thats being generous.

yo123
05-29-2012, 04:18 PM
Its not like there is anyone on here that is normally inactive, it doesn't have to be dead yet. Rob is up and he's usually very reliable, we can easily keep it going if people just stop assuming its dead.

tjsunstein
05-29-2012, 04:23 PM
I just skipped Rob, and sent him a PM. Carry on.
