If you were gonna drop one,,which one?

thanks


I'm going to say no. Neither one one will get regular playing time soon. White is already hampered by his anxiety issues, so they have special travel arrangements. OKC is deep and good. Lamb is backing up Martin who is coming off the bench behind Sefolosha. I prefer Lamb overall for the long term - White has skills but it's rather unique and hard to fit in along with his anxiety issues. But, if this is a non-dynasty league, and not super deep, I'd drop both.


16 team, redraft, standard cat. Not alot on the wire.

Well, Lillard is certainly dominating already. 20+ points and 7+ assists in every game so far....I'm very sad that I was not able to snatch him up in one of my leagues...

I'm so happy I got him in my 8th round. I hope he can keep this level of performance. Honestly though I kept my expectations of him low - somewhere around 15pts 6asts a night. Glad to see him take on that leading PG role in Portland.

The most amusing part of the whole Lillard thing is just how many internet yahoo's were nay-saying Lillard from the get go. Yes, I'm looking at you John Hollinger. :-b

So it looks like the return of kaman = the death of Jae Crowders value. :~(

Not quite yet. Think Carlisle is experimenting. According to one of the Mav's beatwriters, he was experimenting bigger tonight and Murphy got a lot of Crawford's minutes as Dallas has been pretty bad in the rebounding department. Also, will be interesting to see if Marion's tweaked knee turns out to be anything at all.

Marion also went down tonight so we could see an uptick in Crowder's minutes.

Tyler Zeller had a nice game 15 pts 7 boards looked not half bad could be eating up some minutes from tristan .

Not the best line from Lillard last night, however, I am really liking the kid and happy I grabbed him in my dynasty league's rookie draft.

So most of the season completed how do we feel about this once promising draft class. :-D
Davis was as good as advertised
MKG struggled a bit :,-(
Beal showed some promise. Shot 38% from 3 and seemed to benefit from the return of Wall
Thomas Robinson was not very good and ended up traded.
Lillard was better than expected :-B
Did Drummond show enough, that you'll have faith in him in the future?
Barnes wasn't awesome but he wasn't awful either.
Crowder showed some promise but ultimately got 'crowded' for minutes by those veterans. He's going to have to shoot better from 3 and the line.
Andrew Nicholson showed the ability to score but I was pretty disappointed with his rebounding(per 36 of 7.5)
Sullinger's back eventually caught up with him. Hard to believe this won't be a recurring problem.
How bad was Austin Rivers? He played the 11th most minutes of all eligible rookies(out of 76 players) and put up the lowest win share total for the season(-1.2)
Waiters wasn't as bad as i thought he'd be but I still don't think he was the 4th best player in the draft.

Some of the guys i hoped would play more spent the majority of the season shuttling to the D-league. Lamb, T. jones and P. Jones. They all performed well there, but none could crack there current team's lineups.
The European guys were solid if unspectacular. Valanciunas looks like a younger version of Gortat to me(stat-wise)
