I don't think anyone's actually upset, and if they are, meh, let 'em stew. ;-D

Just wanted to say thanks to Red and everyone else for the leniency. It's a very fast paced tour that I'm on and limited Wi-Fi. I should hopefully be back before my next picks come up in the third round. If not, I'll do my best to do a better job of anticipating the timing. It's tough making picks without any of my usual spreadsheets available.

We only have 10 rounds and a great group of guys. We have plenty of time. Since we started so early, if people need more than 24 hours I'm very much so ok with it. We probably only need to enforce limits when we are quickly approaching the start of the season. ;-D

We could have started 2 weeks later and been just fine, don't really need a pick time limit, just a gentleman's agreement not to skip out for 3 days in the middle of a draft. ;-D

Utah looks like the most intriguing team for fantasy basketball because their main two players, Al Jeff and and Millsap, are both gone and now all the stats are up for grabs amongst guys who have yet to fully break out. What are you guys expecting out of Kanter, Favors, and Hayward?

Milwaukee is probably second to me since they have the same situation with Jennings and Ellis gone. Mayo looks in line to pile up a ton of points there as the primary scoring option, think his floor would be his numbers last year but spread out evenly unlike last year where he went from top 30 player to waiver wire material. I'm expecting him to have a really good year as he won't be asked to defer again like in Dallas once Dirk returned, Milwaukee paid him to score buckets.

Hmm, I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. Think too much will be on Mayo's shoulders, so while the PPG might be pretty, the efficiency and turnover rate is going to suck. His best hope is that Knight jumps up a couple of notches on the improvement ladder. :-o

i see mayo and reke around the same tier, both guys can score and create but neither should be handed the reigns completely. both need support to take some of the scoring load / defensive focus so their efficiency doesn't tank.

I would have made my pick earlier... but I had gone back-and-forth about 45 times between Pekovic and Rondo.

Nice. ;-D

Sounds like he might miss a few games early on, but with as many TOs has my team has already, there's no point in even pretending like I can win that cat.
