Ok, looking at my starting five, its pretty clear my team is amazing. I like their chances over anyone elses starting five. So for my 6th man, I need talent, but what I need more than that is: the dirty hippie factor:

Spoiler




Walton might have been a lot better if he wasn't so prone to injury. His numbers are fairly underwhelming, but I need a guy that can chill out the team after a tough loss. And I think him and his stash can do that. Bill Walton will never harsh your mellow.

Time for more offensive power. This is one of the games best scorers at the present time and his ceiling is super high. For my 7th pick:

Spoiler



Kevin Durant is pure offense.

Team so far:

Magic
Reggie
Dr J
Malone
Howard

Bench:

Durant/Walton (though I would prob start Durant over Dr J)

Alright with my 7th pick Im going to take Dikembe Mutombo.

Career stats-9.8ppg(11,729), 10.3rpg(12,359), 2.8blockspg(3,289), 52% career fg%, 68% career ft%, 4 time nba defensive player of the year, 8 time nba all star, 1 time on all nba second team and 2 times on all nba third team, 3s time on all defensive first team and 3 times on all defensive second team.

My Team
PG-Oscar Robertson SG-Kobe Bryant SF-Rick Berry PF-Dirk Nowitzki C-Moses Malone
Bench-Isiah Thomas, Dikembe Mutombo, and my 8th round pick will most likely be 2moro.

Is anyone else thinking we should just 'go all the way' and draft 10 man teams? At least that way you'll have 2 lineups. Now that some of the obvious picks are gone, I'm liking going down the line and crafting a bench. Anyone else agree?
