spreadsheet of picks

anyone can edit please do not fuck it up


We need to get moving on this guys. Draft order is

LCD Ballsystem - jackisreal
Alligator Fuckhouse - UnknownSaint
Mad Doggs - TheBigEasy
Clown Zombies - clownfood
dots - deadonthestreet
Lebron's Ego - tinyfist
sp00ns - dlinfiniti
The Bad Seeds - themightypuck
Wrath of Kahn - Cauld
Talking Barkley Head - Phonehand
Cleveland Comic Sans - BubbaT
Nasty Pigs - Eat It. Eat it, You Nasty Pig
fortis - fortis
Ron Ron's Psych - FirstComradeStalin
Troubled Gryffindor - yotes
Manute's Balls - Bergy

Last year's results:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqN4aZ4nzcX8dHFZZW9vc3ZFMXgxRVZPQkRPRDRCT2c&hl=en_US#gid=0

We'll need a spreadsheet in pretty short order this year as well, so if anyone wants to make it that'd be great.

Rules as always

1. You have 24 hours to pick, except on weekends when it is 48.
2. Try to make it faster than that.
3. PM the person picking after you so they know they are up.
4. If you know you will be away, PM someone some proxy picks so they can pick for you so we aren't slowed down.
5. If you miss two picks in a row I reserve the right to give your team to someone else.
6. Trash talk is encouraged.
7. Pictures to go along with your picks are encouraged.
8. Comments from non-participants are encouraged.
9. This is not the thread for general NBA discussion.

If you could let us know which team is yours that would be fantastic.

Big ups to Bergy for getting the last pick two years in a row.

    Indeed The Bad Seeds is me. In other news, it's a shame about Durant losing that toe on his Everest climb.

    GIS is fired up and ready to go for my pick. I refuse to draft Kobe, ever.

    Was that a rule? I thought it was just common practice because someone drafting ahead of you might have forgotten about Player X, so bringing him up risks having him get scooped right before your turn.


    Also, I can't wait for someone to pick a guy who's stuck in China without an opt-out clause.

    Oh wow, that's kind of a surprise. Shit. I was fully expecting KD to go first. I'll need a bit to consider it over, but my pick will certainly be in by the night.

    Today, team Alligator Fuckhouse begins construction. Construction on the monolithic behemoth of a fantasy squad that will leave no opponent un-fucked. You will enter the 'House, and you will not enjoy your stay.

    The first brick, the foundation of my terrifying machine, is one forged in the flames of hatred and betrayal. Having turned his back on the place he once called home, former friends turned bitter adversaries. An entire state cried out in anguish, and was silenced. The competitive fire inside this young man only burned brighter, and many a great adversary were seared by his intensity. They felt the heat, and it did not feel good.

    I have no choice with this pick, as if this player is already chosen. It is pre-determined. It is destiny. But most of all, it is fear. One simply can not look upon this man, this fiercest of competitors, and allow him to be claimed by another. In doing so one asks for their own destruction. I would not wish to look up and see this face in the virtual arena of dunks and or dimes, and know that he has arrived to claim me.

    Gaze upon the creation of your nightmare! Look into the eyes of your defeat, and know despair!

    Is this a question of why did he not go first, or why is LeBron going to go 3rd or later?

    It just seems like there are players that offer more than what Kevin Durant offers. I personally would prefer a guy who puts up 25 and is a triple-double threat every night than the guy who scores 30 but offers little else. I guess he is a pretty good rebounder?

    Looking at a lot of fantasy projections though, maybe I am just crazy.

    Looking at a lot of fantasy projections though, maybe I am just crazy.

    Durant outrebounds LBJ pretty soundly, and puts up more blocks as well. Drops more threes and has a higher FT % by a solid like 10-12%. Plus he'll likely average 1-3 more PPG than Bron.

    Of course LBJ brings more assists and those are tougher to come by than rebounds, but I feel that Durant has a higher ceiling of potential and more solid chemistry with his team (a team that will probably stay more intact than Miami will as the season goes on). I feel in a shortened season that is a boon to Durant.

    Plus, and possibly the biggest reason, I would really rather be invested in Durant and OKC than LeBron and Miami. If I'm going to be watching more non-Lakers games than I usually would, OKC is the next team in line for me anyhow.

    Edit - Also I PMed Big immediately after my pick, so here's hoping we can see another pick or two by the end of the night!

    You guys should disrespect him all the way to 2nd round 14th pick, so I can disrespectfully draft him.

    Also, remember that it's H2H and not Roto. You don't have to be good in every category, you don't need balance. If you win 6-4 every week, you win the league.

    This is a really big deal. I drafted Kobe one year, and was miserable. Luckily after he dropped 81 I was able to move him for Lebron.

    I'm aware that it's H2H and balance isn't as important. But is LeBron's advantage in assists and FG % worth a clear advantage in 3PM, points, FT %, and turnovers? I think a good case can be made for either as #1 pick in H2H, but I can stand by my reasoning strategically. My personal preference for Durant was just a handy little tie-breaker.

    Also, did you draft Kobe at the expense of someone who was clearly superior? Do you really think LBJ is that superior of a pick over Durant this year to make that comparison apt?

    I dunno, I can live with KD on the #2 pick. Sorry if I'm fucking up already? /shrug
