In the context of this discussion, more or less. Davy is grasping at straws, his team is simply outclassed by the others.

looks like some people are fooled by the dirk/kobe combo, or just kobe, not sure which it is.

I contend that if Davy is going to be allowed to maintain his vote for his own team, that everyone else be allowed to vote for their squad. Davy, in the VERY first vote, went against the voting criteria that was clearly established in the other thread.

I don't think its going to matter much, I think the rest of us should stick to the plan, if Davy's team somehow wins by one vote, we can obviously readress this. Sadly, even as a mod I cannot edit polls as far as who voted for whom.

I'm a great fantasy and building for the future type of drafter but when you find out what the criteria is after 50% of the draft is finished it's hard to come back.
You guys can switch my vote to team D.

Ah Davy, the criteria was established in the VERY first post of the other thread. Orangeish, can you temporarily resurrect the other thread so we can see the first post?

The criteria was set at the very beginning, it's not our fault you missed it.

I can't switch, but if its an honest mistake...I really don't want to nuke and redo this whole thread. We all know the vote for team A doesn't "count" and Davy is on the books for team D, which appears to be running away with this anyways.

I'm deciding between two teams. I'm not likely to do a rundown on each squad like you guys, but I will give a reason why I went with one team over another( it's close).

No offense to Team E selectors but you aren't keeping anybody under 100pts a night with that line-up.

You aren't even starting your best center or PG....

With the firepower on these other teams they are going to eat Nash alive, drive and then face the mighty Monroe and Dirk anchoring the paint? If you want to know what that looks like IRL, flash back to a much younger Nash defending Tony Parker in the playoffs with Amare anchoring the paint. It wasn't pretty and the other teams on this list have Rondo, Rose, CP, Daeron and so forth. Yikes.

Teams that allow an opponent to shoot >50% lose some obscene percentage of those games. I saw it once and it was something like 90-95%.
