Default Who should I keep?

I get to keep 2 guys in my league, and I have CP3, Wade, and Amare...so I need to choose 2 of those. Keep in mind my league scores like this: 1 point for every 1 point, rebound, block, assist, steal...a negative point for turnovers, missed FTs, and missed FGs.

Which 2 should I keep? Whoever I leave out feels like I'm doing the wrong thing...

CP3 and Amare..both are going to be top players for years to come. Wade is no doubt another great option ..but he's always a injury risk(even though he's seems to be healthy now)

exactly... and since CP and Amare's fg% and ft% are both fantastic, you're not losing as many points when it comes to that cat.

I just see Wade having a 28-7-6 year. If he stays healthy, I think he'll be better than Paul, fantasy-wise. That's a big "if", though. The draft's tonight. Part of me wants to go with both Wade and Paul and have the best backcourt possible, but then Amare will have a 29-11 season and I'll be kicking myself.

keep cp and amare. Wade potentially can be better but the injury risk is still there. Also, its harder to get quality pg and c than sg. you're all set in ast if you have cp plus you get a healthy amount of stls. Amare can give you uber high fg% and ft% and blocks.

NOOOOOOOOO

DO NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE

In your league, Wade can be a nightmare. Huge TOs, lots of missed shots, very injury prone. Factor in CP's fg%, ft%, lack of TOs and unreal steals, and he more than makes up for his lower scoring compared to Wade.

Take CP and Amare all day long, for reasons from my last post.

Let the guy keep who he wants. He's looking for advice here, but ultimately it's up to him whether or not he wishes to use it or not. For me, it's CP and Amare and it's not really that close of a decision

Oh, I'm letting the guy keep who he wants. I just figure that, the bigger deal I make out of it now, the more I can talk junk if he doesnt listen to me and it all falls apart

8 teams, so everyone has some pretty good players. There were some lousy decisions made, though, which allowed some of these guys to slip to me.
