Yup, that was a good 'un. Thanks gents. ;-D

Now that we're all finished drafting maybe we should talk about a set and forget league for comparative purposes. :-B

I'd do that for sure - a draft and hold league. Would we just have the entire team play it out, as in no bench? Or you can manage the roster but can't add/drop anyone?

Most guys have neither the time nor inclination to manage another roster (myself included) so I think a set-it and forget-it league would be the only option. Without a bench it's not a perfect measure of the groups as fantasy teams, but it will give a great idea of overall draft value.

Drafts over folks. Im not really into set it and forget it, but if everyone wants that, then ok.

Damn, I thought Barnes had gone already. I would have drafted him a couple of rounds ago if I'd known. I don't normally let target guys of mine slip through the cracks like that. :,-(

Yea i forgot Klay Thompson was still available when i took Lillard. Even still though, i like Lillards game alot and i probably wouldnt change the pick. His summer league and college numbers are great, but just watching him play, i feel like he will challenge for rookie of the year.

Im also pretty satisfied with how the draft played out for me. I know people arent too crazy about the Rondo pick, but i think it was a solid pick. Im relying on potential mostly, but i feel like the guys at where i drafted them should finish around their rankings (except Rondo of course). BUT the main thing im hoping for is that one of those guys really breaks out. Maybe Ilyasova, Lillard, Brandon Knight, Pekovic, heck even Glen Davis.

Wanted to drop in and thank you guys for doing the mock. Good insights.

Also wanted to add that I think the 9th round Kawhi Leonard and Gordon Hayward picks will end up being the late round steals of the draft.

Someone would have to do a write up in order for it to hit the front page. I've been pimping the mock pretty hard elsewhere, but I assumed someone else was going to write it up.
