Nate the outcome of your plan intrigues me. If what you are doing works I may even copy it in the future. I tell you what you want to trade Marshal for Bryant LOL! Trying to make a Kobe team work is a real pain.

Evil, Ibaka is a nice pick for MJ/Bird. Then Donaldson though?

Yeah I looked it up after you picked him and assumed you would use that season. He has positives don't get me wrong. Just there's still a low usage post low D guy I was screaming in my head for you to take. But personally I like defense in the post so I wouldn't take him now.

He's also a guy that I've seen be a 2nd/3rd round pick before but seems to have fallen out of favor.

Im wracking my brain and I can't figure out who you are talking about Gin!

I'll say if he gets drafted or go undrafted. There are a couple hints I could give that would give it away. He doesnt fit my team (I'm hoping to get a guy I think is one of the most undervalued in these drafts) but he used to be a popular player.
12/9/2012 10:32 AM
And I'm 99 percent sure that in my first ODL he was a second rounder, which was too high in my opinion. In the 4th or 5th he has a lot of value though.

12/9/2012 11:36 AM
You know I'm looking at my team and realize I might have a problem.  Im so used to playing ODL that I think im going to have an issue with the cap being too high lol
12/9/2012 2:43 PM
Yeah I drafted my ODL team like a 52 million team and my bench is awful as a result.
12/9/2012 9:07 PM
How is Amare low usage?

My team cap is 17 usage for each player since MJ and Bird take up 12
12/9/2012 9:22 PM
Too much usage is exactly way I had to pass on STAT.
12/9/2012 9:25 PM
Would have made that deal pre-Mason pick Vance, but now I'm locked in to my Wade 35ppg, 9-10apg and 600-700 triples from 17.5 to 22.1 usage guys plan.

Detlef Schrempf. If used as the starting SF I hate this pick. If used as the back up to Moncrief, with Moncrief backing up Porter at PG and I absolutely love it! Schrempf at is 99% efffective at SG and has 21 usage, over 56 RFG%,and over 51% from 3 with over 180 attempts in about 35 MPG. Great rebounding and assists for an SG.

u hit the nail on the head, van! first time i've seen an evaluator get things right. u'r putting a lot of effort and insight into your task. kudos. yeah, detlef at sg while sidney backs up porter. and my starting sf will be available.

So drafting Michael Jordan's 88-89 season started me off with 6 usage points, though it is closer to 8. I swing a trade for Larry Bird and I'll be using his 86-87 season, again another 6 usage points. I've got my PG and SG, probably the biggest gap between picks in league history and in need of low-usage guys with limited negative numbers. I waited for 75 picks before selecting Serge Ibaka, a guy who could easily go in the early-late third round. One usage point, 100 defensive, 1.2 topg, 2.7 fpg and 3.7 blocks, gaining a shot blocker with low turnovers, low fouls, a 100 defense and the ability to play SF. 12.4/16.9 for his rebounding, I'll take 29.3 for a small forward any day.


I created a big board with ten guys, it contained the likes of Anthony Mason, Terry Porter, AC Green and Lamar Odom, the common theme is all of these guys went before James Donaldson, and the list was made after I chose Bird. It also contained Ibaka and Troy Murphy. I know that I'll get exactly what I want out of Donaldson, low turnovers, a good percentage all around and low fouls. Both guys in my backcourt can rebound, I have an above average rebounding small forward. I think a centre with a 33 combined isn't horrific given those other players. Troy Murphy brings me three pointers, great defensive rebounding and sure the knock on my teams last two picks is the 50 and 33 defensive ratings. However added with the 100, 90 and 76 I am not overly worried

I am left with 13 million and I've drafted 14K minutes.
