jhsukow, I'm mad at you for picking Green, who I definitely wanted (both for team purposes and personal fanhood reasons), but I gotta say that pick confuses me a bit. Going the first two rounds without getting a PG or a big man is tough, and playing Kobe and Green at the 2 and 3 will make rebounding an uphill climb. I'll be interested to see how it works.
It was for sure a gamble, but not one without a plan at least in mind.

What would you guys say are the biggest reaches so far? or steals?
6/9/2013 10:42 AM
Reaches: Greg Monroe, Larry Sanders, Monta Ellis

Steals: JJ Hickson, David West, Tyson Chandler, Thaddeus Young


None of the reaches were all that bad, honestly - Monroe maybe 5-10 picks too high, same for Ellis. Sanders maybe a little more, just because he plays so few minutes - obviously his overall skills are very good.

I think there's gonna be some teams that will be real short on minvtes.
6/9/2013 8:54 PM
No one will be short on minutes unless their is real buffoonery going on.  There are 30 teams in the league compared to 24 in our leagues.

Exhibit Gee:

When will someone take Alonzo Gee? He does one thing well, and that is... play. Dude is 2500 empty minutes.

I agree with Malone, the minutes are there. Some teams however will be stuck with Diet Coke 2-guards.

To answer my own question, I'll say the 6th round. You can bet he won't be joining my team..

Ha yeah he's pretty bad. BTW, Not as big a deal here as with most drafts, since the player pool is only this one season, but try to avoid mentioning undrafted players if possible. I don't think anyone is gonna get mad at you for ruining their genius swoop for Alonzo Gee, but people can get kinda worked up if they think a post in this thread alerted someone else to a guy they wanted to draft.

i doubt that anyone will have  huge min problems with min my 2nd rounder had 1900 min as tarheel has pointed out and i should be good on minuets 
6/10/2013 10:22 AM
Rookie mistake, Tarheel. That makes sense. Good policy to not talk about undrafted players.

If anything I'd bet 1/2 the league will draft far too many minutes.
6/10/2013 11:34 AM
After seeing this run on the PG's its pretty damn sad how happy I am right now that I took Kemba in the 2nd.

I'm interested to see your analysis so far Nate.

definitely wasn't true last year, but I'm sure a least a couple people will.

just remember this - there may only be 24 teams in this league vs 30 in real life, but we'll only draft 288 total players, which is nowhere near all the guys who played minutes in the NBA this season.
6/10/2013 7:44 PM
only 13 guys left who play more than 2300 mins(and some of them really suck)....then it dips below 2000 faster than you think....mins will def be tight for most
