Not too early....rolling the dice and hoping to strike gold at this point is A-OK. With Rose out for me, I figured I'd swing for the fences with Thomas Robinson. I'll continue to gamble as this season is more about just remaining competitive while trying to find a solid 5th keeper to replace Amar'e next season, when I hope to contend for runner-up, since no one is beating saldogg any time in the next 4-6 years.
Back to the original point: How would you feel if Beal (neat rhyme) turned out to be the next Dwyane Wade? Afterall, drafting Durant as a rookie was how saldogg got his team so stacked. With a definitive dynasty in our league, the only way you're going to compete with such a team is by rolling the dice.
IN SUMMATION: Great pick.
