    Boy that was a lot tougher than the novice league. I felt like i painted my self into a corner. I couldn't believe my luck at getting my 1st 3 picks but trying to build around my core while not reaching too far proved to be a lot more difficult. Overall, I feel like i got a good mix of small stats while not sacrificing the big ones too much. I did grab too many pg/sg so will have to go fishing the WW seas shortly.

    I think I had a pretty good draft. I am not so sure about Posey though. I will see how he does the first week, and then see if I should keep him.

    Tough draft.

    I'm going to rest my eyes and then take a firm look to see who the winners and losers are. Overall, very impressive draft fellas!

    i didn't do much research before the draft, but i had a basic strategy combined with basing my picks off what everyone else was doing. i think i accomplished my goals, not as much as i would've liked, but with 16 players it was very difficult (and long!).

    the hardest choice i had to make was the #5 pick in the first round and still having kobe, dirk, and arenas on the board, and then opting for dirk.

    a few other occasions i was about to pick up a sleeper and then he went 4-5 picks before i had a chance...and again with 16 people it's no surprise that at least a couple others were eyeing the same person.

    but great draft, great atmosphere, and this is going to be a great season!

    With 4th pick, I had Kobe, La Bron and Arenas available and went with Labron who help me at least get to the finals last year....but alas like the Cavs, I finished as runner up too. I got a couple of other guys in Kaman, McGrady, Brevin Knight and Baron Davis who are injury prone and I can only hope that they give me 75+ games this season. The rest are probably available for trade and the waiver wire.., but give me three weeks to get them to gel as a team.....:)

    I hope Kobe does not get too unmotivated.

    I was hoping to land J-Kidd with the 7th pick, but when Gilbert was still available, I couldn't resist.

    Thats the nice thing about drafting near the top of bottom. Mid pack like I was it was a stretch between picks.

    Well, I am content. Hopefully my team is competitive, but I know even if it isn't it will still be fun watching Nash, Joe Johnson and Antawn Jamison. All some of my favorites. I would have grabbed Arenas instead of Nash, but I think he will start off rusty before heating up.

    Darko is always fun to follow (blocks & stuff) and Stuckey may do OK too.

    I don't have a clue what my strengths & weaknesses are.

    I don't know much about the players out there, but I really didn't see any teams that stood out much either way.

    This should be a battle.

    Nice pick up of Yi, Slippy.

    That guy had a really nice game a couple days ago. I was reading somewhere yesterday that they think he is really going to be a good fantasy player this year.

    I am still pretty happy with how I drafted. Been playing without 3 of the big guns Bibby, Amare Stoudimire and Stephen Jackson so its hard to get a good read on my team. So far I have not found anyone on the wire that I felt was better than one of my players.

    I am open to trade offers though.

    Your guy Paul Millsap was a good steal and a one man wrecking machine so far tonight. 5-6 shooting from the field and 9-9 FT and 4 steals,thru the end of the 3rd qtr that allowed you to take control of the those three categories in the late games. Even though Labron had a triple-double thru 3, he missed 6 FT and 10 FG's:messer:

    Yes but 15 boards and 13 assists from Lebran ain't bad.

    So far Millsap has been great. Rubin Patterson had 1 rebound and 1 TO last night.

    I should be getting Jackson back this week ( 7 game suspension ) and hopefully Amare ( knee swelling). Make the weekend interesting.
