So many name drops.
Yeah, I had the same thought about blocks. Amare can at least get 1 a game and make some contribution, even if it's marginal for an elite big. I also think my second round pick, Kidd, was much easier. Kidd provides the extra rebounding at PG to offset Amare not getting 10+, Amare can push 25 PPG to offset Kidd getting only 10, and I'm not going to get an elite PG by the time I pick again, they'll be going in the late 2nd/early 3rd. Kidd also plays 82 games every year and has been top 15 in BBM as long as he's over 40% on field goals. His turnovers are not high either. I also like having the fantasy value of my top 2 picks being close to their real life ones, trust those guys more.
I probably would have taken Smith or Lopez if either were there.
