Default Re: What do you look for when picking players in a pickup game?

Not to oversimplify things, but I pick the best players first. If a guy's a good bruiser and rebounder but not necessarily a great player, there's a good chance he'll be around for a later pick, whereas the highly skilled players tend to go quickly, so I pick for ability first, then "needs" later. Elsewise, I may end up filling my needs with guys who can kind of play while not having anyone that can really play.
