Ooh wee, that is a strong team!

I had not realized how strong a team this was until it was put together like this. Strong well balanced team.

I thought Timmy Hardaway was a big get for you in the 4th round. I was shocked he lasted that long. He was a heck of a player. I absolutely love that Timmy & Joe D backcourt. That is phenomenal. Those two would work together so well it is scary.

I thought the Cliffy pick was early but I see why you did it. He really is a very nice fit on that lineup. Defensive quickness & length combined with transition & perimeter based offense. Those are great qualities to add to this group.

Seriously, I said "ooh wee" out loud when I saw this team. That must be the first time in god knows how many years I said that. It's been so long I had forgotten if they were real words / phrase or just a strange noise. I googled it to find out.

This is a super-fun & very strong basketball team.

I absolutely love the backcourt.

First, TP to Who for his audible “ooh wee”.

Second, I agree completely.  I loved the Moses pick, but the rest of this team snuck up on me.  Really great roster construction.

First, thanks for the kind words.

Second, I agree that the Cliff pick may have been a bit early. I was looking for a more specialized pick that could space the floor for me and defender at a high level, and those don't exact grow on trees at the PF spot. Reached a bit for fit. Using hindsight, I probably could have grabbed a great 6th man instead, and waited on Cliff until the next round.

Just thought there was a modern big forward who could defend at a considerably higher level while being a more dynamic off-ball player in general (not an indictment on Cliff, but he was more of a top 30-40 guy rather than a top 20-30 player, Cliff would be a great backup rather than a starter in this format imo). Btw I've warmed up to your team offensively, I don't quite think that it is elite but it's certainly strong. Just have some concerns defensively with your PG and SF being average defenders when your frontcourt isn't amazing on defence.

That's fair. I fell in love with Cliff's unique skillset, so I reached a bit to get him. I'll probably go for more defense in my bench picks to shore up some of my weaker positions.

I am happy with the versatility of the big man rotation. I got 4 guys who can all play alongside one another. Vlade gives me a high post facilitator / glue guy. Kemp gives me a power PF or a small ball C. Jermaine gives me a defensive C. Nance gives me an all-round glue guy at PF.

I believe that big man versatility will allow me to matchup against any type of big man combination in the league / team style of play. So very happy with that.

Was unsure of how I felt about this team until today. I love that you grabbed Vlade and Jermaine. Very strong big man rotation that can play many different styles. Great facilitator and floor spacer in Price, all around superstar at the 3 with Dr J, and a great knock down shooter at the 2 with Petrovic. Big fan of this team. Would like to see some 3 and D guys round out the bench.

I hate picking right behind you Who. I think this is the second draft that I have and you absolutely KILL ME by taking my guy right in front of me. You've done it twice so far

I really like your team. It's one of the best, especially after your double center picks today that I think better balance the team as a whole.

I loved the trade for you. Giannis gets an elite second scorer in Clyde, and you probably got the steal of the draft in Parker. I'd like to see you pick up a stretch big to help space the floor for Giannis (like Milwaukee does with Brook Lopez) but this is shaping up to be a really good squad.

I love your team 1 through 4. The starters and Booker are awesome. I have a tough time with DeAndre Jordan though especially next to Giannis.

I loved the trade for you. Giannis gets an elite second scorer in Clyde, and you probably got the steal of the draft in Parker. I'd like to see you pick up a stretch big to help space the floor for Giannis (like Milwaukee does with Brook Lopez) but this is shaping up to be a really good squad.

Yeah, I'm the same boat. I'd go with a floor spacing center and slide DeAndre to the bench.

I hate picking right behind you Who. I think this is the second draft that I have and you absolutely KILL ME by taking my guy right in front of me. You've done it twice so far

Oh me too! I am terrified every time you pick before me.

I've been lucky so far. It hasn't happened yet but I live in fear every time you pick before me. Well not so much now but earlier in the draft. Especially that 2nd round one. I was 100% sure you were taking Mark Price!

I loved the Chet Walker draft pick. I had him high on my draft board. Somewhere around 7th among SFs. I thought he'd be a 3rd-4th round pick. That was a great pickup.

I am unsure of playing the 3 SFs together though. I thought a true SG would have served you better.

I know that Clyde was the best player in the draft, but I am able to improve my bench depth dramatically by makin the deal, and for me Reggie fits my team really well as his ability to shoot the 3 really spreads open the floor for Gervin to offense.

I am not sure there are many players drafted that will be able to guard Gervin when team is able to space the floot around him. Mookie shot 7 threes a game at 37%, Reggie is one of the best shooters in nba history, Connie consistantly hit what would be the current day baseline 3pt line and Ibaka making 36% of his threes on good volume.

Off the bench right now I have a 2 man game of Lowry and Laimbeer (the original floor spacing bigman) and that is offset by the freakish ability of George McGinnis.
