Never been in Jail and never will be. Just completely forgot about the draft. Never even crossed my mind I had something to last night when I got home around 10 after bible study and tutoring.

I guess I can go see the crap I get to mold into a competitive team now.

So in consideration of this discussion http://www.fantasybasketballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=71557 on reducing a center position from line ups, what would you all think about going next year with 10 utility positions and 3 bench positions? My biggest fear is that Jim would go too crazy with his T4 strategy.

I think I'd be game. Love the idea of giving total freedom to the manager within such a competitive league. Hell, I'd get a kick out of seeing if Jimmy could indeed come up with the best week in/week out 5-4 winning team in history. :-b

Man, you guys would be toast if I wasn't limited by positions.

I don't know how I feel about having all utility positions. I know that the league is slowly moving towards "positionless" basketball since the Heat did so well with it, but I don't know that we're there yet. I don't think it'd make sense for a person to potentially field a team with 10 PF/Cs to dominate the big men stats, when there's no way it would work in real life. Same goes for a team of 10 PGs/SGs.

While I realize that many people don't care all that much about fantasy basketball mirroring real life basketball, but I think there needs to be some level of correlation. If I ever saw a fantasy basketball team that featured 10 PF/C's, I would think to myself "that's dumb and completely unrealistic" and I don't think I'd be the only one.

I do however agree that the C position is perhaps being overvalued with the standard roster positions. I feel like it hasn't bee as much of an issue over the past couple of years because so many PFs are getting C eligibility, but it can still be unnecessarily restricting. Ideally, Yahoo would bring back the option for a PF/C roster spot, but I think having only one C spot with an additional Utility spot would be a nice compromise. The other option would be to replace the C spots with Utility spots, and then agree amongst ourselves that at least two of them has to be filled by a PF or C and self-regulate.

I brought this up more to have a discussion. I doubt that a team starting 10 PF/C can actually win. A team would be able to dominate blk/rebs/fg% with a an edge in TOs, but would struggle at being strong enough in a 5th category. A team of 10 PG/SG probably has a better chance, but drafting even in an auction draft would be hard. You're looking to win 3s, asts, stls, ft%, and pts, giving up rebs, blks, fg%, and TOs. You would have to get two top scoring guards and two top assist point guards at least. So in an auction format, you may be looking at getting a trio like Westbrook, Paul, and DWill. And just fill the rest of your team. It'd be interesting see what type of experiment would work. But of course, no reflection to real life NBA.

Another format could be 3 G, 3 F, 1 C, 3 U for a starting 10. I think for building a successful fantasy team, the only positions you could tank are PG or PF/C. Probably not both. I don't think you could build a team just on wings. Maybe if you focus on winning pts, 3s, stls, ft%, and TOs.

It seems like a positional heavy team would have to go with a tank 4 cat strategy. I think even if I set up 10 utility positions, very few managers would actually draft a team so skewed towards a couple of positions, though who knows.
