he shut down the whole league. I'm taking him #1 overall and automatically win

Kyle

When we say everybody's healthy does that mean injury history doesn't matter?

TACKS
03-14-2020, 02:54 AM
It mainly just means you can draft KD, Steph, and Klay.

TACKS
03-14-2020, 02:55 AM
I'm never quite sure what to do with injuries tbh. If you have any ideas how to clarify it or where to draw the line, I'm open to ideas. I have no idea what to do with Blake Griffin for instance.

Kyle
03-14-2020, 03:01 AM
I think Blake is an instance where a repeated injury history kind of sapped some of his athleticism so that counts, but one off injuries yeah who cares.

nepg
03-14-2020, 03:03 AM
I'm not doing this, but in such an incredibly hypothetical, bored af thing, I be feel like everyone is healthy as a fucking ox.

comahan
03-14-2020, 03:48 AM
yeah imo just go with full health as of the last time we saw them healthy, so steph/durant will still be elite, griffin is still good but not top tier, etc

we dont have the info for hypothetically the kind of players theyll be post-injury, so lets just go back a bit with it.

fenikz
03-14-2020, 03:50 AM
Greg Oden here I come

D-Unit
03-14-2020, 06:45 AM
I'll play. You know you wanna beat me.

Yeah, this is how Iím seeing it. Basically, whatever their play level was before their injury.

Sorry, got confused by the Glen Rice and Brent Barry comments...

And I dunno what Rona means

TACKS

The Rona is what the streets are calling this Chinese conspriacy to ruin the NBA season. (but wash your hands and be careful in public tho just in case it's real)

A single eye brow is behind raised at this statement.

I still consider him tier 2. It was between Dame, Brow, and someone else who I won't mention yet so I don't get accused of "name dropping" as if people don't know who Jokic is.

But yea just twitter DM me if I'm otc since I get notifications on my phone

D-Unit
03-14-2020, 06:58 PM
Nando not gonna be happy about that Doncic snipe

OSUGiants
03-14-2020, 07:01 PM
Yea I thought for sure SP would go Jokic there since he stans him all the time and then Nando would get his precious Luka

fenikz
03-14-2020, 07:06 PM
I assumed you would go Davis. I would have taken Luka

OSUGiants
03-14-2020, 07:15 PM
Nah I’ve always been a big Dame guy and I think he’s at the top of tier 2 because of his ability to take over a game, especially in the 4th quarter. I also seriously considered Luka, but talked myself out of it

SP
03-14-2020, 08:29 PM
Yea I thought for sure SP would go Jokic there since he stans him all the time and then Nando would get his precious Luka

I'm not Corey! Tbf I don't even remember the last time I watched a ful basketball game that wasn't the Warriors in a playoff series, but Doncic is the GOAT.

SP you bastard. I’ll settle for Trae, though.

Picking Trae over Jokic is insanity.

TACKS

It is but I respect Fernando sticking with the bit. A man must have a code.

OSUGiants
03-14-2020, 11:57 PM
Luka/Jokic is such a scary combo. Tatum was next on my board so give me a minute to reconsider my pick

fenikz
03-14-2020, 11:59 PM
I was debating between 4, Tatum has just been so good real easy to picture him in the elite conversation soon

Him and KD would've been a cool ass tandem.

If you want a real ass tandem, take Lowry next.

KAT was one of my big considerations over Siakam

Fernando
03-15-2020, 03:09 AM
I could have gone with any other number of nerdy combinations but I did it for the culture.

Ice Trae and Zion, Lob City 2020.

I feel stupid for forgetting Klay and not pairing him with Dame

fenikz
03-15-2020, 03:08 PM
Order was rigged you had no shot anyways :)

Booker > Beal BTW shouldn't have changed the pick

SP
03-15-2020, 03:41 PM
I feel like I definitely have a chance with Donic/Jokic so shhhh

scottyboy
03-15-2020, 03:49 PM

Booker > Beal BTW shouldn't have changed the pick

I went back and forth on that a lot. Beal's a better 3pt shooter and surrounding Lebron with him and Klay makes me horny

OSUGiants
03-15-2020, 04:27 PM
I considered him last round. Couldn’t pass on him twice. The idea of a Dame/Booker backcourt was too sexy to pass up. Should’ve gone Klay last round for a discount splash bro’s, but Booker will work too.

fenikz
03-15-2020, 04:29 PM
they <3 each other already so you have that going for you

Brodie
03-15-2020, 04:39 PM
Buckets is so much better than Booker

D-Unit

Under/Over for SP and Nando to make their picks is 8 hours.

Place your bets!

OSUGiants
03-15-2020, 04:43 PM
Buckets is so much better than Booker

Agreed but I have a hard time seeing him meshing with Dame.

D-Unit
03-15-2020, 04:46 PM
Buckets is so much better than Booker
You have to look at the team assembly. Buckets has no range. He creates no spacing, so that's not ideal.

D-Unit
03-15-2020, 04:51 PM
Agreed but I have a hard time seeing him meshing with Dame.
Yeah, he's a tough personality and could disrupt a lockerroom. Booker was better for your team. Butler seems fine for Fenikz atm. He's going to have to be careful picking a PG though.

OSUGiants
03-15-2020, 04:55 PM
I love me some Jimmy Buckets, easily one my fav 5, but yea he just did not fit what I was going for. A backcourt of sharp shooters like Dame/Booker with Spicy P on the wing is a great start for what I had in mind coming into this draft.

D-Unit

Dame/Booker is a lot like Dame/McCollum in real life. Portland can't seem to get past Round 1 in real life. Will be interesting to see how your roster compares to others in a loaded 10 team league.

comahan
03-15-2020, 05:15 PM
Booker is a better offensive player than CJ by a lot, but that was never Portland's issue, Dame/CJ are terrible defenders and Booker isn't really an upgrade in that area

Thatís why I have Siakam and will just stack the rest of my team with 3 and D monsters.

I wasn't gonna pick Booker but you did steal him

I'm just going BPA and seeing how it works out, Gobert may start or come off the bench, idk

Brodie
03-15-2020, 07:58 PM
Fenikz has only 1 guy who can shoot threes so it's okay

fenikz
03-15-2020, 08:00 PM
Easy to find shooters though

fenikz
03-15-2020, 08:30 PM
based on that picture he is gonna need to be quarantined for a month, sorry commie

it's alright no one can keep up with him long enough to catch anything anyway

TACKS
03-15-2020, 08:33 PM
Steal. I know he fell bc he's a weird fit but he gets to play with the greatest shooter & the greatest shooting big ever.

comahan

50/40/90 shooter with size/length who plays good defense, yeah i'll take him as my 6th man

Hopefully Kevin Durant keeps falling, really looking for a 3 and D guy to round out my rotation.

scottyboy
03-16-2020, 03:22 PM
I gotta ask: to what extent (if at all) are we factoring in roles/egos/personalities in this?

Brodie
03-16-2020, 03:29 PM
A pretty fair amount I'd guess? They're still the same person they always are when you draft them.

TACKS

That IS the game here... This not like a fantasy draft where we are just stat hoarding. ...although stat strengths and efficiencies should be considered because they represent the type of role the player would fit.

That's a very good pick by Fenikz for an off the bench guy. He can shoot in bunches at least.

D-Unit
03-16-2020, 10:25 PM
I like the pick, but I think Ayton would've been much more appreciated and gone higher if he played in the 90's.

Very David Robinson-esque - without the wins.

Brodie
03-16-2020, 10:31 PM
He's nothing like David Robinson

scottyboy
03-16-2020, 10:45 PM

it's the rona draft, not the roid draft

D-Unit
03-16-2020, 10:51 PM
He's nothing like David Robinson
Yeah yeah yeah... someone always goes overboard anytime a player comparison is made. I'm not as anal. Robinson was more athletic, muscular and played with a flare... Give Ayton 2 more years of being on PEDS and their shoulders will be identical. Robinson played in an era where they never tested for that so he was lucky. But I still think Ayton would've been more appreciated back then when the game was more physical... not as much in a pace and space world.

But how old were you when Robinson played?

fenikz
03-16-2020, 11:03 PM
Actually Ayton's biggest weakness right now is shot selection he takes way too many midrange jumpers but that has been changing

D-Unit
03-16-2020, 11:05 PM
Commie, I almost took Horford. Nice pick. I was mistaken thinking he'd make it back. Good teammate, good all around game, playoff experience, players for a winner... +++

D-Unit
03-16-2020, 11:07 PM
Actually Ayton's biggest weakness right now is shot selection he takes way too many midrange jumpers but that has been changing
If he played in the 90s he wouldn't be trying to make a shooter out of himself.

Figure we just have everyone send in a ranking 1-8 (can’t vote for yourself) and then tally the points that way.

1st place is 8 points
2nd place is 7 points
Etc.

If you don’t wanna do all that I wouldn’t mind adding up the votes

Could do a bracket too to make up for no March madness but idk if people are down for that much voting and idk how we would do the seeding

With how versatile and positionless my team is, I can't do a regular depth chart, just like this

Guards:

Bradley Beal
Donovan Mitchell
Seth Curry

Wings:
Klay Thompson
Tobias Harris
Caris Levert

Bigs:
Nikola Vucevic
Julius Randle
Andre Drummond

GOAT: Lebron James

No Blake

or D'Lo.

I'll make the voting thread in a little bit when I get some time. Thinking of making the write-ups limited to starting 5, bench, & closing 5 (if different from starters) and 3 short bullet points about your team construction. We dont need essays. Between that and your roster you shouldn't need anymore than that to get the concept of your team across.

Thought about that. I drafted RoCo first.

But I like RoCo's strength on my second unit and I think Serge is more of a natural fit at PF and plus he completed my All African unity in name starting line up. :D

I've made my squad in 2k20 and am currently 3-0, just had a wild OT thriller against LeBron's Lakers. I just got the game and suck at it because its very different from 2k18 which i last played. Anyways, Curry went 10-23 from 3 in that game :D

we can just do 8 and make these fuckers vote, do round by round instead of 1 match at a time so theres only 3 votes for people to do
