Battle of the Sports Forums

Postby silentjim » Thu Sep 13, 2012 3:03 pm

For all that are interested, the Cafe is still participating in the Battle of the Sports Forum this season and the draft is underway. Myself, geodbear, Rounders Block, and RedHopeful are representing the Cafe again this season and we've changed things up a bit as far as settings go, where we can play divisions and thus don't have to play against each other anymore, which is awesome.

Here's a link to the Draft Results

Here's a link to the Settings, Teams, Etc.

Teams thus far:

silentjim: Love, Jennings, Eric Gordon, Gallo, Humphries
Rounders Block: Smoove, Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala, Jeff Teague
geodbear: LMA, Paul Millsap, Ryan Anderson, Joe Johnson, Klay Thompson
RedHopeful: Pau Gasol, James Harden, Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, Kawhi Leonard

We've all been extremely pleased with our teams thus far and feel like we have good strategies moving forward. ;-D

Hey, Rounder going for the no-Dwight Dwight build. I like it. ;-D

All the team's look good really, although I'm a little surprised at Kawhi in the 5th. Not that it's bad value, but I'm surprised the hype train has picked up enough steam that that's where he needs to be grabbed.

Pick #77 for Leonard isn't hype. Fact of the matter is there are always some players who inexplicably are ranked lower than where they should be (as we've already touched on Yahoo's O-Rank of 140). Given Kawhi finished last season right where I just took him, it's absurd he's not ranked significantly higher. In competitive leagues, you simply can't let guys you like drop to a level the uninformed consensus agrees on.

Don't get me wrong, I'm with you on Leonard completely, I was just hoping the fog of war would last a little longer. :-b

I felt great about my team until Frye went down. My weakest position just got weaker which sucks. And Frye's not even that good. :-B
