Really disappointed in my draft. I had a strategy that got blown up by round 3. I was focused too much on value and getting good talent with low FGA and reached on Draymond when I could’ve got him round 2 and got an actual star round 1.

Final roster:
PG: Rondo l J. Murray
SG: J. Murray l Lance Stephenson l Abrines
SF: Hayward l Lance
PF: Draymond l Kuzma
C: KAT l Draymond

I do like my defense though

Wow. Iggy with 5 shots still available in the 8th round. What a steal.

lol I was kinda surprised to get Iggy in round 4 given his shot total

wonder how giddy SP was to think he was getting him in the 8th?

Everyone will submit a ballot. Top 4 seeds move on. We all vote on the Final 4 bracket (1 v. 4, 2 v. 3). On my phone, kinda busy right now but I'll set up a thread with instructions later today.

Clint Capela [9.1]

LeBron James [19.3]

Trevor Ariza [9.7]

Khris Middleton [15.5]

Kyrie Irving [18.1]


Jordan Bell [3.2]

Luc Mbah a Moute [5.7]

Andre Iguodala [5.0]


So the idea here is that I will always have a feature player (LeBron/Kyrie) surrounded by shooting or secondary playmaking/shooting wings (Iggy/Middleton/Ariza) who can switch onto anyone on D. LeBron and Kyrie will be staggered in a way that Harden and Paul were for Houston this year, with one of them always on the court. Iguodala will almost always play alongside Kyrie as a playmaker and ballhandler when LeBron is off of the court, letting Kyrie be a scorer. Ariza and Middleton are long wings who can switch onto anyone and shoot the 3 at a good clip, while Luc is one of the bester perimeter stoppers in basketball.

Squad is built to be fluid and versatile, able to suffocate anyone on the perimeter with great wing defenders and protect the paint with two shot blockers. The adaptability of Capela and Bell to be able to switch out onto perimeter players is big, as I think Clint is the best big in basketball at doing that, which really limits the oppositions possible iso game. Jordan Bell allows me to do the same thing in a lesser way, letting me to keep up the switching pressure without deviating from the plan because Capela is out, while also being a shotblocker at the rim.

LeBron is LeBron, and will be on the floor with three 3P shooters in Ariza/Middleton/Kyrie and an elite roll/lob guy in Capela. If I need more playmaking, I bring in Iggy. If I need a pure defensive stopper, its Luc. Middleton gives me a little bit of everything, a 20/5/4 guy on good efficiency who can play good defense and guard 3 positions. And lastly, Kyrie in the iso is always an option, as there arent many players in the league id trust to get a single bucket in a single possession more than him. Dude is a bucket-getter. Imagine him playing next to LeBron! Madness I know, but here I make that dream a reality, guys

PG James Harden
SG: Bradley Beal / Marcus Smart
SF: Danny Green / Wilson Chandler
PF: Marvin Williams
C: Steven Adams / Jarrett Allen

So, I'mma follow Commie's lead and explain:

I took one of the leading bucket getters and playmakers and surrounded him with guys who can shoot, defend, and don't need the ball in their hands. Beal is a great shooter to take some of the scoring pressure off of Harden, but Green and Williams can both stretch the floor and Adams can work well downlow with such a spaced offense.

Smart can really play 1-3 (and even 4 if need be), making him a strong and versatile defensive presence off the bench. Chandler is another solid 3 and D guy who shores up both forward spots. Allen is a strong defender, shot blocker and rebounder who is good to spell Adams and catching lobs from Harden. My team is well-balanced and would gel very well on the court together, with both offensive and defensive potential.

This offense is basically going to be unstoppable. The threat of on-ball Steph especially when being trapped (passing it off to the best passing big man ever) should create wide open shots for a bunch of consistent 40% plus 3pt shooters. It'll be similar to when the Rockets missed 27 3pt attempts in a row, but like the opposite. Pivot Jokic will also have a field day passing to a constantly moving/cutting backcourt, setting up a bunch of easy 2s. Otto (44% from deep the last 2 years) and Mirotic (43% from deep in the '18 playoffs, 38% during the regular season) can't be left alone, freeing up even more space for Steph and Harris to run around in. A fully healthy Steph is also the best player in the league and could always just do it by himself if he wants. I can't see anyone outscoring this team!
