      Well I can say this... auction drafts are nearly impossible to prepare for because each one is different and you never know where the threshold is going to be. I had no idea Durant was going to go for $215! Or Howard for $200+. So in that respect, it's hard to prepare for how much you will spend on a player. You basically have to wing it and go with your gut. There are different strategies involved. For some, they were going with the "I'm getting my star keeper!"... for others it was getting "bang for the buck"... and for others like Brodeur, it was like "I'm going make sure I have a lot of leftover money!" lmao

Got a lot of guys I had my own eye on... Jrue Holliday, Anthony Randolph especially. ...you just had to overbid my $1 bid on Redick too, didn't you! Jerk.... ;)

        Very good PG combo. Kobe will have another monster year. I think the injury is overplayed. Dude has a competitive fire unlike any except Jordan. SFs are bleh. Aminu is a nice sleeper. He's had some nice preseason games. I like Tiago Splitter too, but I don't think he'll be a fantasy star. Amir Johnson has some promise. He had a nice last month to the season last year. Gooden is consistent, I just don't like his game at all. Hawes is... eeewe.

        Overall, I think it's a solid team.
        I'm really hoping that one of Amir/Ed Davis step up in Bosh's place in Toronto so that I can slide Randolph into my starting C spot. Amir has a great oppurtunity with Davis' injury and should get plenty of minutes early to prove himself.

        I'm not in love with my SFs either but I think Hedo should be better than last year in Phoenix's high paced/high scoring offense and CJ Miles has been pretty impressive in the minutes he's getting. Don't sleep on CJ this year. He's listed as SF for some reason in the fantasy league (which is great for me) even though he's pegged to start st SG for Utah right now and he's shooting the ball great.

        I told you I only outbid you for reddick cause I was pissed you took Blatche from me. I despise Reddick but I wouldnt be surprised if he started over Vince by the mid point of the season.

        And FYI, John Wall is Not Kwame Brown.

        • I think the funniest part was when everyone had 2 million left per slot Brodeur still had 11.5, and he made sure we knew it too but then left 16 million unused.

            I have a point guard problem.
            I think you had a comment for every player taken. That was awesome! I love having you in live drafts. Makes it fun for everyone... even if you tried to foil my bids and get others to drive up my price!

            Good luck with those PGs... yikes. Just remember.... $16 left over. :D

            Wade was not worth the cost, imo. He's always missing time with injury. Hamstring injuries linger... you should know that being a football fan.

            LOL@getting JR Smith you were trying to tell me is a crappy shooter in the NBA thread. He'll be fine player for you. Terry is consistent too. Does he have PG eligibility? That would help you out a lot.

            Aren't you a Carter hater? Why did you pursue him? Maybe I'm mistaking you for someone else. Artest was a good buy. As was Evans. He was the player I wanted most on your team. I tried my best to win the bid for him, but let you win out as I had back up ideas and others I had my eye on.

            David West went cheap, so kudos for that one. Your frontcourt should be fine. Enough to compete, but I wouldn't expect you do dominate with them.

            If you spent your leftover $16 to get a guy like LaMarcus Aldridge who went for $15, you would've been golden. ;)

              You mean $2 left for slot? Yeah... I tried to make him feel bad about it too. :D

              The thing is... Brodeur ALWAYS leaves a lot of leftover money, but he never learns.

              I think he likes the feeling of knowing he has the bid hammer, but then he never knows when the right time is of throwing it down.

              I had the hammer for a while, but when my guys I had my eye on were being nominated, I made sure I got them. That's why I beat Brodeur for Collison and now he has crappy PGs.

              Next year, Brodeur will do the same thing. :D

              I love you B! ;)

                Really lacking in real star power...I had to make do. But it is what it is. haha. They may look a little weak, but i dont hate it, exactly. My depth is really poor in comparison to most, though. I still think I'm destined to be pretty damn bad. Caught me at a bad time, with the lightning. I think I'll kill it next draft. :D

                I like the Westbrook/Johnson combo.

                • Real Gunners go in with
                  PG- Brandon Jennings/ Goran Dragic/ Nate Robinson
                  SG- Kevin Martin/ Ray Allen/ Ben Gordon/ Kyle Korver
                  SF- Caron Butler/ Kyle Korver/ Shane Battier
                  PF- Pau Gasol/ Taj Gibson/ Patrick Patterson
                  C- Emeka Okafor/ Brad Miller

                  I might need to trade for some assists, but this team has balance.

                    My center positions sucks, but other than that I like it. I got out-bid for all my sleeper centers.. argh.
                    I'm so happy that you joined our league. We've got a great bunch this year. This is the only fantasy basketball league worth being in on our forum. I know how much people like debating with you in the NBA thread, so I thought having you in this league was a must.

                    You ended up with a team that will definitely compete hard. A lot rides on the coattails of CP3. You were definitely aggressive in getting him. I was surprised by your strategy, but I guess a lot of people either had the same one, or they followed suit and bought into what you were saying. I noticed the beginning of the draft was an all out WAR for the top shelf talent! You were like, I got my star! Something you wanted to do in a 20 man keeper league. I have to admit, I maintained being a bystander for the most part as one by one, many of you were spending like there was no tomorrow. The guys I was cautiously scared of because they weren't spending was PF, BOS, and Brodeur... I had a feeling they would be my main competition later... and they were.

                    Iggy was a good get. Definitely a keeper. I don't know what's happening with Rudy Fernandez, but I think he'll eventually be traded. They have Batum up and coming and they just gave Wesley Matthews a brand spankin' new 8 digit contract. I didn't quite get why the bidding for Dorrell Wright kept rising... other than to guess, someone really wanted to have the "I won the bid" feeling. Jamario Moon has a nice opportunity to step up in Cleveland. Thornton's in a crowded situation. I like Thad Young... I keep thinking one of these year's he will really breakout... but I don't see that happening now until Philly trades Iggy. He and Evan Turner will inevitably take up some of that court time.

                    Millsap was a good get. He'll get you numbers that the person who won Al Jefferson wish they were getting.

                    You Center situation is a mess, but you had to anticipate that some position would suffer because of the money you used on CP3.

                    Overall, good team! I hope we have a fun season!

                      I had to wait patiently while you all went on a spending spree... I didn't expect to get them as cheap as I did. $8 for Hickson and $4 on McGee. I'm very happy that I didn't end up with Dwight Howard for $200+.

                        But I got my man Mozgov!



                        7'1" 270, averaged 13 points in the world championships. Should get 25+ minutes in D'Antoni's system. Rotoworld is projecting 9 points, 7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks and everyone acted like I was taking crazy pills when I grabbed him for 1$.
                        I seriously thought you getting Mozgov was a nomination timing mistake!

                        Here's your chance to show us who's boss. :D

                          your just lucky i accidentally nominated hickson when i did. i had him at the top of my queue but never meant to nominate him. i didnt realize it was my turn to nominate and my clock ran out so it auto nominated him.

                            PG :: Rajon Rondo | George Hill | Jose Juan Barea
                            SG :: Jason Richardson | Mike Miller | Roger Mason
                            SF :: Trevor Ariza | Mike Miller | Carlos Delfino
                            PF :: Tim Duncan | Carlos Boozer | Al Harrington
                            C :: Al Jefferson

                            a few guys i don't have listed bc i plan on releasing them
                            Fricken Awesome PF!

                            What a haul! I have to admit I was watching how you were using your funds during the entire draft. I knew we would get into more than few bidding battles... and sure enough, you beat me on more than just a few. You beat me out on Rondo (who I REALLY wanted)... Jefferson (who I think will be a beast with Deron dishing to him)... Ariza (who I love in NOR way more than when he was in HOU). Believe it or not, I'm even impressed with the George Hill pick up. Duncan was a wise spend. People kept thinking he's old and that's bad for a keeper league, but you got him at a great price for what his fantasy numbers will be. You got Boozer on the cheap too because he's injured now, but he's a definite keeper candidate. You filled your team out with Miller and Arrington who can stuff your 3s category. Mason, Delfino and Barea will get you steals.

                            Overall, you have on paper what seems to be a championship caliber team. Awesome draft!

                              Well, thank you! ...and thank you to the rest of the guys who didn't want to overbid me!

                                There is always ONE GUY who shows up with the bad internet problems and that was you, MOTH! I felt bad for that cause I've had similar wireless problems in the past myself. Last year, I think it was DChess who kept going off and on.

                                Still, you ended up with a classic MOTH draft that is very solid. I don't know how to define it, but looking at that team it's got some obvious fantasy value as far as category fillers. Bargnani... the best 3pt shooting Center. Joe Johnson, a great assists grabbing SG. Ronnie Brewer, with the "steals" expertise. Randolph the rebounding *****. Q Rich - 3 bombs away!

                                I really think Randolph was a great buy as far as value went. He's really an underrated fantasy star. Westbrook will be better this year. You have more than 3 guys who you will debate about who to keep. That's rare in a league like this.

                                Overall, you had a great draft with no real glaring weaknesses.
