Don't fight it. It probably knows something that you are overlooking.
Sorry guys, totally spaced it. Busy day at work.
I suggest we fill the roster spots with a guy whose stats are as close to zero as possible. One candidate is Travis Knight.
I know the numbers are probably a little off, but if everyone transported forward in time to now, I'd take Dwight over Wilt in a heartbeat. I'm surprised it was that close, but I like to think it shows the integrity of the simulator.
That simulator is crap!
You... you took the guy I figured nobody would take. Good choice. Now I have to rework my plans...
Um... I can go one of two ways - I can crazy my team up a little and take Metta World Peace or Ben Wallace for the defense, or get a more versatile scorer like Dirk or Clyde the Glide. Or I can use SNL's supercomputer and pick Daryl Chocolate Thunder Dawkins.
My team's ability to score is solid, with Jordan, Durant, Nash, and Howard, the first three being good to great 3-pt shooters and all of them having .600+ TS and .500+ eFG. I'm confident in my team's ability to defensively handle wings, but bigs are a different story, with only Howard. Yet I want a sixth man that's a little more versatile than what Ben Wallace would give them.
I wish I had another pick or two, but that's what makes this tough, I guess. In the end, I'm just gonna say eff it and go with Ben Wallace. I can go small and run Wallace/Rodman/Durant/Jordan/Nash and still feel like I'd get some boards and block shots, or go "big" and feel like Howard/Wallace/Rodman/Durant/Jordan would still handle quicker squads.
So yeah, Ben Wallace.
How about Jimmer?
Where's Walton on your list?? He's light-years better than most of those guys.
He was injured alot, but won two NBA championships.
Again, this was a real publication, not your imagination, so Walton wasn't included.
Good picks with T-Mac and Ben. I'll repost everything here in a minute. For now we can take a few days to experiment with the simulator, think about bench-ideas, negotiate trades, etc..

READ this Post!!!
Pistol Pete still had it going on in '84
This is a great, inspirational movie for any basketball enthusiast. Must-see for any young kids active in the sport.
The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend (1991) - IMDb
Pete died in 1988 of a heart attack at the age of 40.
I think I watched this as a young kid. One of my first introductions to basketball. I was amazed at the guy's talent.
