I liked the idea I think Frosty had where we draft a team of current players. We could do a big head to head tournament afterward potentially. 

I would think that would be a lot like a fantasy baseball draft if everyone has to be active players

@trader jakelooks like our draft slot trade was a big benefit to me!  hahahahaha

😄 Team Trader Jake won the regular season title, but couldn't sustain the momentum in the BIS or Pantheon.  I now know how Dirk Nowitzki felt in 2007. 🤕

Too well balanced and not enough star power. A sadly appropriate description of the 2007 Mavs as well.

So would I have finished first with Issel over Dolph?  

I would have scored Issel lower than Dolph since I didn't get ABA the full credit I did NBA so it all evens out for you. Dolph also had 12x All Star and 12x All NBA which was a pretty big score for me.

Honestly kind of want to do the whole thing again except I take Bird, and then again except I take Duncan (and put him in his proper position of C all career ;) )

Or maybe I could just not get the friggin’ last pick

Somehow getting Shaq at 14 was pretty amazing.

Yeah, you getting Shaq to fall and me getting Kareem set us up nicely to start.  Not sure how Frosty screwed up having LeBron fall to him.

I was between Shaq and Duncan and decided to go Duncan for some flexibility if I wanted to bump him to Center or PF.  I had them fairly equivalent and I thought Duncan had a more consistent/longer peak.

I like Duncan better as well, but Shaq should have gone around 10-12 range.

ETA: and my objective rankings actually had Duncan #4 overall.  I usually put him around #8 in my all time lists, though.

I'm kind of disappointed by the judging.

I put extra emphasis on clutch performance for the pantheon roster.  Yeah, maybe I don't go 74‐8 with Robert Horry playing significant minutes, but maybe I go 4-3 when it counts. 

Same for Ginobili. I probably overestimated Ginobili for snatching the gold medal from the USA in 2004, or did I?

My inquiring mind wonders, who were the 2004 USA Olympians? And why did they lose?

Hope I don't sound too serious here. This was all great fun.

Thanks, Mom.

I only had time for voting in the Best In Show Polls, but Shaq just always felt unstoppable at his peak. He wouldn't be nearly as good in the modern game without learning to shoot, but it is easy to imagine him dominating the paint in all eras given his freakish physicality. I think that helped him in the rankings over players that had better careers.

:2cents:

Pretty sure when we revote the post 10s after this playoffs, my team will leapfrog to the top of them and 1 or 2 in best in show, leaving me the winner.

Giannis' team sweep and Lillard's 55 pts last game say hi.

With McCollum as a secondary ball handler and spot shooter the lanes would be wide open for Trae is penetrate off those screens/double screens by Blake & DeAndre.  Those two (former) elite athletes would be at/above the rim all game long.  They'd also be a really difficult duo to keep off the offensive boards.  In addition to locking up the best wing, Tatum would be asked to contribute to the defensive boards, which he should be able to do against most 3s and use his anticipation to help close passing lanes.

The biggest issue with this lineup is Trae Young's defense.  The guy can single-handedly drive an offense (Box +/- ~+3.6offense, ~-1.8dedense), but he struggles to contain the opposition's point.  Which is why the team build around him has to be right.  To maximize him you need versatile, athletic players to run and space on offense (Lob City frontcourt and 40% 3ball shooters in McCollum/Tatum at the wings) and a rim deterrent like DeAndre.  This team would lose some shootouts to elite point guards, but if a team doesn't have multiple elite defenders they will absolutely get run out of the gym.  Just too much offensive firepower, each with different strengths to take advantage of matchups.
