There are always some of these drafts and always fun to watch :D. I kinda know the strategy that normally takes it out though, but moreso used in the All-Time drafts so a current one is always more interesting.

I'm in FS  8)

Not sure how well I'll go, particuarly when we get to bench spots, but anyway.


Is it for a dynasty/franchise, or just the best right now? I'd be keen on a dynasty rather than just one season  :)

Was first on my list

Yeah, like him more than James TBH.  :P
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft
Post by: Holz on January 13, 2013, 11:22:55 PM
Ok this guy is clearly the best player currently and on 28 he is just hitting his prime. Makes it difficult as he can play anywhere. Probably will lose lots of votes from haters.

Will take the guy with the reigning triple crown . Season MVP finals MVP and a ring.

King James.

I'm gunna do Holz a favor because I know he is a big fan of him.  ;)

Pick One: Kevin Durant

He is in my opinion the second best player in the comp easy. Much easier to build a team around than lebron as he has a more defined role.

Title: Re: Current NBA Draft

Just trying to work out how these teams are being judged


Is it in terms of how they are playing right now? Or current players in their primes?

As it's a Dynasty sort of draft, I assume it'll be going on who would win the most Rings over the course of say 5-6 seasons. That could mean some teams go for earlier glory (first 2-3 seasons) while others may go for later glory (last 2-3 seasons) which makes judging somewhat biased to personal opinions. Don't mind Judges making their call, but also a poll in say the Front Bar asking people on their opinions, although some will only go on the names they know (which is a bias in other drafts with casual followers choosing the players they know over better players who are less noticed). So basically how they will go right now and in the near future.

Quote
Since 1946 only 4 players have averaged at least 16 points, nine assists and two steals per game, while shooting 47 percent. John Stockton 4 times, Chris Paul 4 times, while Tim Hardaway and Mark Price have done it once.

If we narrow that down a bit further and only include seasons on that list with an assist-to-turnover ratio of at least 3:1, we drop down to seven times, knocking out Price, Hardaway and one of Stockton's seasons.

Paul is playing at a historic pace at this point in his career, and if he keeps it up
 he could end up carving out a place for himself in the history books as one of the greatest point guards of all-time.

Well considering this is a comp to try and get the most 'championships' in 5-6 years then Id say he is available Windi, just wont be as explosive as used to be I guess lol

Will never be the same player is what I'm thinking.  :-\

-Actually think pick one could be my downfall, pick 16 next.  :P

Fishersaints isn't Durant more of a Small Forward that plays Power Forward sometimes?  ???

Top pick marcz I was thinking him at 2 as in my opinion he is clearly the best PG in the league.

always is when opinions r involved :P Cheers Holz 8)

and yes players who havent been selected need to be  :-X



Fishersaints isn't Durant more of a Small Forward that plays Power Forward sometimes?  ???

The Coach should select the position the player is playing in eg: LeBron plays 1 thru to 4 in reality so could be picked accordingly...

When u pick u "should" be looking at how ur players fit together, thats a big part of how it will be judged imo

I would like to hold of on putting james in a postion at the moment. As you said i can play him anywhere but C, so i need to see who is avilable for my 2nd and 3rd pick. As im not sure if i will play him as point forward or a a pure small forward.

Post by: gossiboy on January 14, 2013, 02:41:18 PM
Okay with the 5th pick in the draft I'm going to take the best power forward in the league who just so happens to be the best rebounder in the league and a good 3 point shooter and still reasonably young. Averaging 18.3 ppg and 14 rebounds I take:

Kevin Love.

Post by: Jay on January 14, 2013, 03:11:35 PM
No probs Gossi, great pick :)

Now there is an obvious pick but I am just going to enjoy building a team and not going for the win necessarily...

I rank this guy the best C in the league when fit. I admit he is injury prone but he will get over the knee problems eventually and show everyone how good he really is. Give the ball to him in the post and it's 2 points most times and if they foul him? Well he will actually knock down the FT's - he shoots 70% from the line unlike his other centre competitors.

Last year he had his best ever season averaging 19ppg at 56% shooting, 12rpg and 2 blocks a game! Being a go-to-guy that can perform in the clutch at just age 24 watch out uguys.

Yes it is 2-time NBA champion... Andrew Bynum

Yeah wanted to snap him up early because I didn't thnk he'd be there at pick 12. Like I said still young at 24 and a low-profile superstar so hopefully there won't be any clashing ego's on my team.

No probs Gossi, great pick :)

and no only no swelling in his knees and a bit of treddy running

Bynum is the best traditional centre in the game, with a flawless back to the basket game. D12 is like an over-sized PF IMO

Even Shaq said Bynum > D12

not arguing he isnt good, just odd u would start a dynasty with a guy who shoots a higher ft% than his % of possible games played

Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty
Post by: gossiboy on January 14, 2013, 05:25:18 PM
Bynum is a more traditional bruising back-to-basket centre who loves working his man over in low block just as shaq did better than anybody else to play the game whereas D12 plays more in the European centre mould where his game is very much based on running pick and roll's.

Shaq did say he'd take Bynum as he strongly believes a centre should be first and foremost a post-up guy and D12 is more like, as Jayman said, "an over-sized PF".

In the end it all comes down to personal preference.

Was a good pick imo Gossiboy, i rate him highly, defense isnt great but everything else is really good and a cornerstone for dynasty

Cheers, i figured that of all the guys left I'd build my dynasty around K. Love and the guy who i've got lined up for my next pick, hoping he's still there at 12.

Bynum is the best traditional centre in the game, with a flawless back to the basket game. D12 is like an over-sized PF IMO

Even Shaq said Bynum > D12

not arguing he isnt good, just odd u would start a dynasty with a guy who shoots a higher ft% than his % of possible games played


im confident he can improve that stat next season and become an MVP candidate as well as  taking Philly to the east finals...

Bynum is a more traditional bruising back-to-basket centre who loves working his man over in low block just as shaq did better than anybody else to play the game whereas D12 plays more in the European centre mould where his game is very much based on running pick and roll's.

Shaq did say he'd take Bynum as he strongly believes a centre should be first and foremost a post-up guy and D12 is more like, as Jayman said, "an over-sizIn the end it all comes down to personal preference

But anyway, I'll pick the bloke you've all been discussing and go with Dwight Howard.
4 time All-Defensive player of the year, Dwight will be the anchor of my team.
Averages 20+ points, 14 Rebounds and more than 2 blocks a game?! Man, did not expect him to fall to pick 7.

not meaning to interrupt your draft and all but have you guys sorted out:

1) judging criteria? - i know the indication is dynasty but are we talking eg 5-6yrs or 8-10yrs?!?
2) injured players - so I pick D Rose on the basis that he's a returning MVP but not available this season and will likely take time to warm up for 2013/2014 season too ... also unknowns around his actual recovery (fingers crossed!)
3) OOP - like if i'm judging and I don't agree that KD is the pure power forward in the team he's selected in and better at SF, which might put his particular team out of balance against another draft team ... do you see where I'm going, or I'm just confusing the shower out of youse??  ;)

not trying to be difficult, just highlighting that youse should give me and HP (and whoever else is going to be a judge) some criteria to judge by as a guide ... or you're gonna get different sorts of biases for and against ...   ;)

Not sure about injuries

FS it should just be as close to it is in real life. So if you pick a player currently injured than they will have to judge him as a currently injured player and than they will have to estiamte how good they will be if/when they return and how long it will take.

e.g. If this was AFL and someone picked mark Lecras last year you would say he obvisouly couldnt help at all last year and you would have to guess how good he will be when he comes back this year.

At just twenty years of age and in just his second year in the NBA, Kyrie averages 23 PPG and 5.6 Assists (which I'm sure would improve in a better team). For whatever timespan this dynasty is set over, Kyrie will dominate from now till the end of it.

My 2nd pick was a tough one with the likes of Rondo + Irving going before it >:( however I think I have found a player that in all honesty outshines both of them.

Since being freed from the bench of OKC the reigning 6th man of the year has flourished in his starting role at Houston, he is carrying that team with 27ppg 5apg 4rpg. Those are unbelievable stats for a 23 year old, hell I would have picked him if he was 28 just on those stats alone!

To form a lethal pairing with Bynum, all I can say is fear the beard because there is no guardin' James Harden

Alright, Kyrie was my man as I just love watching the kid play and he's special so I'm gonna go with another Point Guard with that x-factor. Somewhat surprised he hasn't been taken yet. He draws a lot of criticism for his poor shot selection and ball hogging when all he has to do is get the ball to Durant:

Russell Westbrook.

The most athletic player in the league today if not of all time, averages 21.6 ppg, 5.3 rpg and 8.5 assists while shooting a mediocre 41% from the field (36% on three's).

For my 3rd pick to go with Harden and Bynum I will take the no.4 small forward in the game (that isnt over 35y.o :P )

This guy is leading the Grizzlies to the western conference finals.  He is averaging 19ppg over his last 6 seasons and has not dropped under 18ppg (excluding rookie year) - consistency. He has started this one well too averaging 18ppg 6rpg. He can steal, block, pass, play D... This guy can do it all

It is Memphis' all-time leader in steals and the man who was the main cause behind the upset of the decade when Grizzlies overcame the Spurs in last season's playoffs, he is entering the prime of his career, 26 year old... Rudy Gay

I hate LeBron but you cant deny he is a good scorer and then putting him with a great guard in Rose and a great C in DMC certainly makes for a great dynasty IMO.

Well, I thought I was going to go for a more youth orientated side with Kyrie and Blake, but I just can't turn this guy up here. Currently the second best SG in the league in my opinion. Not only his offensive output of 20+ PPG and 5ish assists, but his on ball defense is amazing. A block a game, two steals and 5 boards, yes please. 
Still got 4-5 first class years in him.
Dwyane Wade
(http://l1.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/jKoVN2Pp2ZFfDvqvV6Gawg--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7cT04NQ--/http://media.zenfs.com/en/blogs/sptusnbaexperts/Dwyane-Wade-is-really-pleased-with-himself.-Getty-Images.jpg)

Team so far:
C: Howard
PF: Griffin
SF:
SG: Wade
PG: Irving

Think I've put together a good team despite being second last in the draft :)

Same with Iggie.

Good pick with Wade chumps, he is in decline though. 
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty
Post by: Jay on January 15, 2013, 09:51:41 PM
Attention guys, I have my 4th player for the Jayman Dynasty. In all honesty, probably the steal of the draft right here. I thought to myself, what PF would go best with Andrew Bynum and this guy instantly sprung to mind.

Last season this Atlanta PF had per game averages ranking him sixth in points, fifth in rebounds, first in assists, second in steals, third in blocks and fifth in double-doubles out of all PF's. No other power forward in the game can stuff the stat sheet like him. He is by far the most underrated passing big man in the league while also being one of the most active defenders. There is not another power forward in the league that can have the same impact on both ends of the floor.

The best All-Round PF in the game and I got him with my 4th pick. Welcome, Mr. Smooth ... Josh Smith

He was the other one I was considering instead of Griffin, but went for youth/potential and scoring power in the end. Smith puts up too many showerty jumpers for my liking right now!
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty
Post by: gossiboy on January 15, 2013, 09:57:18 PM
Sticking with my youth policy I pick Eric Gordon with my fourth pick. A superb talent easily capable of averaging 25 points and 5 assists per game if he can stay injury free. He joins Love, Batum and Westbrook as my fourth 24 year old.

PG - Westbrook
SG - Gordon
SF - Batum
PF - Love
C -

If Gordon was fully fit from day 1 this season he could be on Harden's level or higher right now. Superb pick. Leaves the shooting guard-less teams scraping the barrel now ;D

Jayman's Dynasty

SG: James Harden
SF: Rudy Gay
PF: Josh Smith
C: Andrew Bynum

Great player, was considering taking him as my SF but decided I couldn't have him and Westbrook taking ridiculous shots, I like him more as a Small Forward, want my PF to be grabbing 10+ boards a game.

It's pretty funny that before the 2004 draft Smith was touted as the most talented player who was most likely to fail in the NBA. Nek minnit 24th player in history to record at least 10,000 points, 5,000 rebounds, 2000 assists and 1000 blocks.

per game averages rank him sixth in points, fifth in rebounds, first in assists, second in steals, third in blocks and fifth in double-doubles out of all PF's. And thanks to Gossi here is another great stat... 24th player in history to record at least 10,000 points, 5,000 rebounds, 2000 assists and 1000 blocks.

Everyone's teams are looking good at the moment but the Bynum/Smith combo could be lethal passing out to the sniper Harden. Looks like the reserves, as they often are in the NBA, are gonna be hugely important in deciding the best dynasty.
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty

You raise good points Gossi however Smith as a SF is not one of them, clearly a better PF but I guess there is an argument both ways

I realize he is not an elite rebounder but when you have Bynum he doesn't need to be 8)

6th in 3 pointers made so he is real threat there. Shooting it at an impresive 43.3%

12th in the league in PPG.

I need to shore up my back court with a C & PF.

(http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQkZyDV4SLfqJNcnhr9NexEvzXhowQncLuAkf31BOjpcy4MHjC3Zhjg96UM)

Greg Munroe:

I wanted a center that could crash boards, pass & could net some points. I could have gone for a tried center, but this blokes stats eclipse there's at only 22. He is perfect for dynasty. I see him consistently getting 10+ points a game and getting around the 10 board a game as well.

__________________________________________

(http://www.nba.com/media/act_chris_bosh.jpg)

I can't risk this bloke slipping onto somebody's bench. People are too quick to forget that he was a dominant force at Toronto and he is influence is somewhat limited at Miami. Averaging 20 points a game over his career, Bosh has plenty to offer at only 28. A very efficient scorer, is 6th in field goal percentage this year.

Still is third in overall points for a PF this year.

PG: Stephen Curry
SG: Paul George
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: Chris Bosh
C: Greg Monroe

aha I 100% know who you are thinking of and do he isn't as good as Pierce. Thought you would have snapped him up already :P

Post by: Holz on January 16, 2013, 12:22:20 PM
going abit left of field here for my team.

Im going to take Joakim Noah.

in the MVP rankings he is just outside the top 10 and rightly so.

10th in rebounds per game however he is one of  the best fascilitating big men in the NBA with 4.1 assits.

Only 27 years old.

now the left field bit is im going to play him PF, i really think he has the game to be a gun PF, he isnt a big scoring player, however with a team of lebron rose cousins mayo i need a guy who will help the team.

PG: Rose
SG: Mayo
SF: James
PF: Noah
C: Cousins

I strongly consider Deron over Curry, but went with Curry as he is an offensive point guard who scores and passes+ he has 4 years on Williams.

Both are good point guards and both are good options, it's just personal preference.

Here it is, the pick which separates me from the rest. I rate this guy really highly in fact higher than I rate Kyrie Irving. He is one of the best young PGs in the game and in a couple of years when the Wizards are good he will be a force and capable of finishing his career as one of the greats. He is unique, like a young Rajon Rondo in most ways. In a PG I'm looking for not just scoring, but ball handling and passing ability and there aren't as many young guards with those features as good as this guy. He plays killer defense, his hands are great and when he's on a fast break ya got not chance stopping him. Injuries put a slight halt on him last season but je has recently returned and he has led the Wizards in assists in every game he has played this season.

He averaged 16ppg 8apg and 5rpg over his last 2 seasons and at age just 22, there is still plenty of improvement to come. Rounding out my starting 5 it is... John Wall

He's also got the ability to go 20+ points, averaging 17 per game this season, aswell as 7 rebounds.

Yeah you could argue that Gossi, forgot about clutchness ::) And at this stage, yes I agree with you :)

Wall is more athletic, has better court-vision, better passer, better driver, better ball-handler, better rebounder, better stealer and also a better defender.

Guess you could also argue Irving is a better leader but Wall has been unlucky with guys like McGee and Blatche on his team during his earlier years, they are idiots.

Just curious lads, for this dynasty, do we pressume that we will have draft picks later that we could use to fill spots?

Like, Marcz was to pick a 30-year-old SG as a backup for Kobe, would we have to pressume that he'd be playing one of them at the age of 37 at the end of the dynasty timeframe?

Playoff basketball isnt won by flashy teams its won in the trenches, half court basketball and team defense, Kyrie is a triple threat, he gives me an accurate shooter that by default has the ball in his hands a lot of the time and in the clutch, defenses have to respect that, John's jump shooting %'s arent good for a primary ball handler and that scares me as it makes him predictable and only a double threat, Wall is giving me things id want in a SF and he doesnt give me all i want in a PG, dont get me wrong here Wall is a tremendous talent but i cant ever see him winning a ring, he needs a mediocre team to have those big stat stuffing lines, It really is an easy choice for me based on my basketball philosphy, ur PG needs to be an efficient scorer with 3PT range, not a dominant scorer but an efficient one to go along with all the skills.

Well, for my first bench spot I guess I better get a good long-term replacement for my oldest starting player, Dwyane Wade.

Although his position has been in question since he's entered the NBA, myself, and many others, believe he's best as a Shooting Guard. Despite not having the best season this year, he's still pushing up decent stats (5 Rebs, 15 points) and if he can get back to the form we saw in his rookie season (20 points, 5 Rebs, 5 Ass) which I think he can in a good team, I've really struck a winner here. At just 23, welcome to the team Tyreke Evans.

I have this guy as the 4th best centre in the NBA and has been the best centre left in this draft ever since Cousins went so I am bewildered as to how he has slipped this far...but I'm not complaining ;D this guy will be my backup for Bynum for the next few years and by the time this guy is 'past it' Bynum will be 100% confident in his knees and will be able to carry the load. Actually, people think this guy is older than he really is... He is only 28 which in NBA terms means 'in his prime'. He is the king of double doubles, racking up 19 already this season and we arent even half way through. He is averaging 17points 10rebounds so far and I think after the all-star break will push up to last years numbers of 19points 10rebounds 2blocks as Jazz push for a playoff spot.

This pick allows my game style to stay pretty much the same when Bynum is off the court as he too is a traditional centre. Welcome Al Jefferson

Yep he was the guy I was tossing up with Al Jefferson. His rebounding has always been a bit of a worry but yes he is very under-rated - Shaq rates him, therefore I'd be crazy to disagree. :P

Great pick U.D

why 2-3  the best PF in league at 31 he should be more than servicable for a while. He might not be the best PF in the league in 3 years but i can play him of the bench and he will still be massively dangerous.

As well as 5000 assists. He certainly is a great player, but there is something about him that I don't like. from just a 'fan' perspective.  Maybe it's the tattoo on his back that I don't like.

If Kobe wasn't playing for the Lakers anymore, the Lakers would be boring. Just my opinion.  :P

Thought I would back up my other injury-prone player in John Wall with another of the games very best young point guards. This was a tough choice but I think I have come across a steal here. Pick 5 in the 2009 draft but began his rookie year last season and before injuries struck, he was matching Irving blow for blow in the Rookie of the Year battle and I wouldnt have been at all surprised that if injuries didnt occur that he could have won that award. His rookie season finished him with 11pts 8ast 4reb. Also 12 double-doubles is impressive for a rookie point guard and if you compare it to Kyrie Irving's 1, Westbrook's 10 and John Wall's...oh wait Wall had 26 (yes 25 more than Kyrie :P )...this guy is without a doubt one of the best young passers and ball-handlers in the game and I see him as one of the best consistent double double guards for years to come. Next season I think he will make the all-star game, big call but he will rack up the assists when he has a fit K-Love and others who I can not mention ::)

Just imagine this guy running the break with Gay and Smith by his side :o Will also be able to get Harden some wide open looks and make Bynum's scoring a whole lot easier... I will take Ricky Rubio
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty
Post by: Windigo on January 17, 2013, 07:48:30 PM
I briefly considered him, but I don't see him as an offensive enough point guard.

A solid pick though!  ;)

Yeah offense is his issue but I figured when I have Harden, Gay, Smith, Bynum all I really need a backup PG to do is dont give turnovers and pass the ball to them... And I see him doing that for years to come ;)

Im going to continue with my youth approach and take the next star of one of the most dominant modern era teams, the San Antonio Spurs. This kid is only 21 yet has solidified a starting role along with greats of the game Parker and Duncan. He is sure to learn a lot from the big 3 and I see them making sure this kid lives out his potential and leads the Spurs to a bright future. He is a good athletic inside scorer and his 3-ball is coming along nicely too. One of his great strengths though is defense. He has the quickness to play on most guards and the size + athleticism to lock down a forward. He is excellent at racking up steals and also an impressive rebounder. This kid is a top 15 SF and at age 21, he is only going to get better. Per 36minutes he averages 12pts 7rebs 2ast 2stls, not bad for a 21y.o ... He shoots over 50% from the field, 37% from 3pt line and 80% from the FT line. He has every fundamental needed to be a star and I expect him to be an all-star in the next couple of seasons as he becomes the Spurs no.1.

I'd like to welcome Kawhi Leonard to my dynasty.

he is going to be my starting C, his all round abilities mesh best with the starting 5

yeah but I wasnt looking for a passer. When Bynum is still recovering, I want a similar player a big man who can score with his back to the basket, dominate in the paint and get rebounds. Passing isnt as an important statistic for a big man as points + rebounds are.

It is because no one pays attention to the Grizz. They have one of the best starting 5 units in the league.

The stats that got it over the line for me was Jefferson has had 253 double doubles and Gasol has had 87

Jefferson hasnt had under 30 double doubles in a season since 05-06 ... Gasol has never had more than 30


Depends what kind of player you are looking for. If facilitator then Gasol is obviously superior but if scorer + rebounder then give me Big Al any day

If I was you I would have gone for a defensive guy since you have the scoring power in Smith and Bynum and then have a high scoring back court. It does not matter if you put up 18 and 10 every night if you can't play D.

preaching to choir my friend, apparently Rudy is diva-ing it up atm which is why he is the chip they r looking to move on to get under the luxury tax, if i were "john hollinger" id be looking to move Zbo, but Hollinger is a freak at breaking down basketball so he knows something we dont...

Yeah i get why u picked him Jayman i do and its right for ur team ;) im just a little biased when it comes Bubba Gasol, his game is a real treat to watch, he fills holes and roles that the team needs at the time, its something statistics rarely pick up

It all depends on structure and if you wanted a scorer, Jefferson is a good option. He is a good player and I am not saying you should have taken Gasol ahead of him. You need to go with team structure, I just think he should have been long gone by now.

The Mavs will make a huge (successful) play for D12 so he can move to a relatively small market (compared to the Lakers) where the pressure won't be as intense leaving the Lakers without a truly dominant centre for the first time in decades.

Did live up to his potential 'somewhat' with 21 points a game in a season.

But in my fantasy team he certainly won't be needed to be putting up big numbers, just a good solid contribution which he is capable of.  ;)

I was thinking of Parsons last night. The kid puts up some surprising numbers and has actually been pretty solid. There is still another SF out there that is in a good age bracket.

I also did mention Bargnani to Jayman in that PM last night. Coming off the bench, if you already have a solid defensive big he could put up some nice numbers. A good injury prone player in a crappy team. Depending how injuries factor into the decision making, he has the potential to be an excellent pick up.

Yeah, I reckon he could be a good pick up off the bench. I hope they factor in Monroe's continued development as one of the best all round C's in the next 10 years. Just needs to step up his block stats.

With my second last pick I take a man who would be right up there with the best haircuts in the league, Iman Shumpert. Just 22 years old the 9.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.7 steals he averaged last season as a rookie don't tell the full story. Shumpert is one of the best defenders in a league where defense is a dying art and at 22 he still has plenty of time to improve.

By moving Al Jefferson to PF, I can now take Indiana's most important player and the youngest All-Star remaining in this draft. Last year this big man had a career best year averaging 13pts 9rebs 2blks and recording 21double doubles. This season he has improved many elements to his game, one of which recording a triple double which you don't see many centres doing, in fact it is very rare to see anyone get 10 blocks in a game! He has boosted his block average up to 3 per game which is elite. You can see that he is one of the very best centres in the game on the defensive end.

I will take 7ft2, 25 year old, all star... Roy Hibbert

Not so sure that he's "improved many elements to his game" this season, actually been extremely disappointing with 9.7 points and 8.2 rebounds a game so far this season while shooting a very poor (for a centre) 41%, the Pacers were definitely expecting more from him this season after giving him a 4 year $58 million contract.

Still a good player, just been a let down so far this season.

Perhaps a bit of a left field pick, but I think he's one of the best defensive young guys in the league. Should be in the All-NBA defensive first team this year, and will challenge for the defensive player of the year soon enough. Averaging a ridiculous 3.1 blocks per game and 8.6 rebounds this year at just the age of 24. Will be set to take over from D12 in my team in a couple of years. Larry Sanders

Not many good PF's left!

This guys pretty good though. At just the age of 24, he's averaging a double-double for the Trail Blazers with 11 Rebs and 12 PPG. Developing in leaps and bounds. J.J Hickson

Final team:
C: Dwight Howard
PF: Blake Griffin

PG: Kyrie Irving

6: Kemba Walker
7: Tyreke Evans
8: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
9: J.J Hickson
10: Larry Sanders


I think my bench team would still make playoffs in the NBA really :P

For this pick I was tossing up between a defender and a 3pt shooter then I just did the Old El Paso taco advert and thought "why don't I have both?" that's where this Orlando SG comes in. He is having a career best season in rebound, points, assist, steals and it wouldn't surprise me if he takes home the Most Improved Trophy. He is averaging 18ppg, 3apg, 4rpg this season and at only 27y.o he still has a few years of these numbers infront of him as the no.1 at Orlando. He plays excellent defense which does not show up on the stat sheet, in fact I have him in the top 5 on-ball defenders in the league. He is also an excellent shooter and you can count on him to shoot 40% from deep and 85% from the line...

PG: John Wall/Ricky Rubio
SG: James Harden/Arron Afflalo
SF: Rudy Gay/Kawhi Leonard
PF: Josh Smith/Al Jefferson
C: Andrew Bynum/Roy Hibbert

I just think each of the 7 coaches/GM's should cast their votes for who they would think would win each of the 7 championships we're playing for (no voting for yourself), the team with the most votes to win a year wins that championship and the team that wins the most championships wins overall.

With my last pick I pick my oldest player. Averaging 16 points, 8.6 rebounds Nikola Pekovic at 27 takes the starting centre spot for a season or two while Davis continues to grow into the defensive powerhouse he will inevitably become. Also has great chemistry with Love.

PG: Westbrook/Lawson
SG: Gordon/Shumpert
SF: Batum/Young
PF: Love/Faried
C: Pekovic/Davis

Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty
Post by: Mat0369 on January 22, 2013, 01:17:42 PM
Here is a list of the guys I think should have been drafted. Bogut was on there so he is crossed off.

Wilson Chandler - A relatively young guy who has 6th man written all over him. He comes off the bench and puts points up in bunches. Would have been the perfect guy to come off the bench and give your SF a rest.

Ersan Ilyasova - Had a breakout towards the end of last season. Was putting up points, can shoot the 3 and was crashing the boards. He has had a bit of a down year so far but has started to rediscover his touch in recent weeks.

Tony Allen - Has been rated the best lock down defender in the league. Does not bring a whole lot offensively but has the ability to shut down the other teams best scorer.

Danny Green - He is young and has been labelled one of the Spurs stars this season along with Parker, Duncan and Manu.

MarShon Brooks - Young player, second season, has the ability to put points up in bunches. Was in the all rookie team last year, has struggled a bit finding a role with the introduction of Joe Johnson this season.

Others who would be fringe - Perkins, DeAndre Jordan, Lou Williams, Vasquez, Mbah a Moute (defensive purposes), Mike Conley, Eric Bledsoe (youth)
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty

Contemplated Baby Davis as well.
Title: Re: Current NBA Draft Dynasty
Post by: RiOtChEsS on January 22, 2013, 01:25:23 PM
Mike Conley absolutely should have been drafted, i couldnt squeeze him on a team with CP3 and Dwill tho, Dragic, Kyle Lowry as well... Lou Williams just worked his way out of a roster spot when his season ended this week, tore up his knee and will miss part of next season too...
agreed with Ersan, JaVale McGee is another, top 10 in blocks averaging 18 minutes a game, just needs starter minutes to evolve

He has actually really improved over the last two seasons into a good player. I remember watching him with the Cavs when LeBron was there and thinking how does he get a game. Over the last two seasons however he has grown as a player, just on the wrong side of 30.

Not sure to be honest. The thing with a dynasty type draft is you never know how players will progress or regress and if their careers will be cut short due to injury. That is why some of the teams that might be strong in the first couple of season might have a glaring weakness in future seasons. Then you need to think about team chemistry, some guys who have all the talent in the world are detrimental to their teams because they are headcases and divas. Then you need a good mix of offense and defense. You can't win in the NBA by just scoring as we have seen in previous years with D'Antoni teams who were all offense and no defense, or a team like the Pacers or 6'ers who play great D but are impotent on the offensive end. Plus the NBA has become a superstar driven league and you need one to win a championship. A team like the Nuggets or the Grizzlies have great depth but no superstars, coming up against the Thunder who have KD and Westrbook, you would pick the Thunder. Based on this logic, teams that lose their superstars early due to age, lose their chance at pretty much competing.

So looking at each teams superstars, it would be KD and Curry (playing like one this season), Rose and LBJ, Holiday and Anthony, Marcz has a bunch of guys who can be considered superstars but based on the ageing process I will list Paul and Kobe, Westbrook and Love, Harden and Bynum, Howard and Wade, Rondo and Aldrige.

There are some good all round squads, but going on the superstar theory, Rose and LBJ would be hard to go past since you have the last two MVP winners (James won 2009 and 2010 as well so the last 4 MVP awards have been split between the two) that will kill teams by driving the ball.

It is still difficult to judge what the chemistry would be like of certain teams, I will use FisherSaints as an example. I don't think Melo and Jrue would work well as a combination. Melo struggled when Lin was in the team because Lin was a ball handling PG. Melo has needed the ball in his hand while with the Knicks to be successful and he needs to be the guy. Jrue has developed into an excellent ball handling PG and that has become a strength of his along with his defense. So you basically need to take away one players strength to cover another players weakness. At the same time in the same team, Melo and Ibaka would work well together since Ibaka is a defense first PF who grabs a ton of boards, does not demand the ball but is able to put up points.

It might be easier to judge them if I was looking at each squad against each squad in a 7 game series and try to pick a winner like that. All I know is I am glad I am not a judge.

Wilson Chandler/ Damien James
Love/Ryan Anderson
Ibaka/Taj Gibson
Meeks, Milicic and Dampier were just extra bench players. A bit of an undersized team but a good mix of drivers shooters and defenders. I think this team probably rates the worst of the lot. Chandler is only really good as a 6th man so my SF is a huge hole and I need a better back up center so I can shift Gibson back to PF for defensive packages.

Team two: 2k12

Jrue Holiday/Ish Smith
Afflalo/J.J Redick/Nolan Smith (listed as a pg now)
Durant/Ryan Anderson/Tobias Harris
Love/Collison/Ryan Anderson
Ibaka/DeAndre Jordan

My favourite team of the lot. A good mix of shooters, defenders, bigs, smalls, bench players, the whole lot. Love had his breakout season last year and I did the draft before that. Also was able to nab Jrue which I was extremely happy with. All 3 would be gone in the first round of a draft done today.

Team 3: 2k13

Jeff Teague/Mills
Sefolosha/Jordan Crawford/Morrow
Chandler/Singleton
Love/Markieff Morris/Leuer
Lopez/Oden

Not huge on team 3 either.

Chris Palmer (ESPN analyst) just tweeted "Feel like we've seen the last days where Derrick Rose is better than Kyrie Irving." closely followed by "D-Rose will need a year and a half to get back to MVP form. By then Kyrie could be NBA's best PG. Understand?"

Marcz those are a great read. I'm stoked I got rose I just think a fit rose and James would be unstoppable.

I did a similar thing with my friends. I took durrant at pick 1 and my friend who knows his stuff took rosé pick 2 before lebron

i guess Rose is younger, but its still pretty a bold move, James career running alongside MJ's career isnt a big difference to date, James has to do what Michael did now and win multiple Championships, Rose is fantastic, if he has his Adrian Petersen shoes on this knee injury wont take long at all for him to get back to MVP form... Those r the sites i plan on running the next voting system off, twoplustwo seems to have a lot more traffic and passionate madmen :D

ppl toss "best" around like there is more than one, there is no way anyone is better than Chris Paul at the point guard position, he is statistically on pace to be the best of all time at that position...

Well done Holzman.  8)

______________

I knew my team was top 3 or two.

Reckon my bench was pretty solid just quietly.  :P

"And i think team 1 is actually better than team 2. even if lebron is better than durant from years 4-7 (far from a gtee), team 1 has curry/george who will only be 30 in the last year whereas team 2 has zbo/noah/parker/granger who will all be 33+"

Exactly my thinking. George at 22 and is so good if it was just a pure youth draft he'd be like top 5 surely.  :o

Weird a lot of the comments are for me, but the votes go for Holz.  :P

I'm just doubtful that Rose will be the same player, given that his play style is explosive, he will have zero confidence for a while.

"Was team 8 trying to recreate the bad boy pistons?"  :P

agreed I think he will take 2 years to get back to even close to his best. Thats why i picked up parker i think he will be a top 5 PG for the next 2 years still.

PF: Kevin Love
SF: Andrei Kirilenko/Gallinari

I appreciate the messages but I will say it now - I did not read any of them.  It would be unfair. 

I have cast my vote in a PM to FS - it was close between 4 teams IMO and 3rd place was decided based on a combo of 2 players.
Thought all participants were sending their teams with a pitch as received from 4 people. Guess not so waited for no reason, apologises fellas! Will get to it now and send Fisher a PM :).

Judge 1

It's a close one for top 2. In order of who I think can possibly win the most Championships first and a little reason why.

1. Holzman - Short term especially, but has some medium term players to get it in seasons 3-4. Expect Rose to return a step below MVP level for him, but he should still be an elite PG and still good for the dynasty.

2. Windigo - Got alot of scoring power with the role players. I don't think it has what it takes to compete with Marcz's and Holz's teams short term although could nab some 3-5 seasons in. Durant is just beastly, and Curry is good with Bosh the role player who can work with them well. Nice bench as well for the depth especially for the talls.

3. Marcz - Bryant, Pearce and Duncan, very short term before they get old (but may be serviceable off the bench). I'd say 1-3 championships tops seeing as they have Paul and Williams there to run the point which is extremely lethal to have at least one on court at all times. Chemistry could work well with Paul and Duncan usually able to mesh with many and Gasol a great fundamental Centre to have.

4. MyChumps - Howard and Griffin is a Killer combo to have at the front and have Wade short term. They have great players, but not sure on the chemistry part. Could grab a Championsip ring with Wade/Griffin/Howard there but wouldn't expect much more with other teams here.

5. Gossiboy - Medium and possibly long term could do well! Westbrook is a great young PG and has a scorer in Gordon with him (should still be good given time). Love as well to dominate the boards and offensive presence and can see them contending beyond 2 seasons down the track

6. Jayman - Great backcourt and Rubio off the bench for dynasty. Wall has potential in him. I do think they lack some defence though which could hurt against the competition they are up against.

7. Scrads - Nice solid team by Scrads, but once again, won't be able to compete with the big dogs in here. Short term not a great chance, medium term maybe but long term not overly great. It's a solid team, but wouldn't say Championship material with other teams here.

8. FisherSaints - Don't think enough quality for the short term and star players will be on the decline by the time they are able to compete for the championship

Judge 2

1. Holzman
2. Jayman
3. My Chumps


Fair to say that Holz won

Given I had bad sleep the night before and was doing SC/DT around that time and was tired, my thinking wasn't exactly all there but good enough as wanted to give a small reason (can't go too in depth imo). Would have been nice to be able to discuss with the other judges though for an unanimous decision but needs better organising and whatnot on our part for that.

So my man John Wall dropped 27 points pulled down 7 boards and dished out 14 dimes today in Cleveland. And where was Kyrie? His injured ass was sittin on the bench... I enjoyed this debate. Get around John Wall!

Oh and Rubio recorded his first triple double today, my PGs from this draft were to die for.
