That's late third round value. Like the Lewis pick, but feel he might be getting taken a round early given Turkoglu's continued rise (we'll see whether that pans out). Think Richardson is good but there's some risk associated with that with Larry "Crazy Eyes" Brown. You took Kaman in the same round I took him, so I'm going to give you a consolatory high-five, let's both hope he decides to play in 70+ games this year and not let Camby wreck his confidence. Biedrins is a 10-10 guy on his best day...he shouldn't have been taken that early - even if the Harrington trade thing is for real. If Miller can come back healthy that's a great pick, but that's very risky. Like the Foye pick, love the Rose pick, Manu at that position is studly but not sure if you'll be in strong enough contention for him to matter when he gets back.
Overall a solid team but there are some unanswered questions - hopefully Baron steps up this year for you - if you get equal production as last year from Lewis, Richardson and Kaman you're money.
I agree with your past paragraph... I know Baron and I guess I am jus looking for his rare combo of steals, 3's, assists and pts so... ya... it was him or maybe Granger whom I had last year, but I had to keep Amare so.... we'll see.
Rashard said he will be more assertive and greedy this year, so, haha, we'll see what he does, thats the only reason I traded up for him, missed out on Gay.
JRich, ya, I know LarryBS, but I just dont think you can supress his talent and I believe he is in his prime now... another rare combo G/F when healthy of pts, 3's, reb, steals and some blocks.
Haha Kaman.. yea he looked terrible tonight, almost made me wonder how he made those numbers last year, but I am sure he'll give me the 15pt/10reb/1.5+blk per gm + decent % and thats fine with me after Amare's work.
Well, Nellie said Biddy was gonna get a lot more touches (oops, did I say that? well i believe him this time even tho i had Al-H last yr and it was a nightmare), so I am hoping a little 12pt/10reb/1.5blk with high fg% from him. Fine for a #3 center.
I think BradM's heath is fine (unless the pothead syndrome affects his on-court performance), jus that Hawes kinda worries me with his young good play right now.... may limit Miller's min.. that would stink.
Ya I love Foye and Rose too, and ya I am worried about staying in top 3 when Manu comes back, but if I am in the top 5, I think I have a good shot with maybe 1-2 good trades... need to get rid of a PG & C and get a nice F/G combo.
