    Anyone already drafted yet? I just got mine and I'm excited about the team I put together. I missed my draft but my preranking did a good job.:nod:

    PG: D. Stoudamire
    SG: Josh Smith
    G.: Josh Howard
    SF: Lebron James
    PF: Tim Thomas
    F: R Jefferson
    C: Ben Wallace
    C: Yao Ming
    Util: T. Chandler
    Util: D. Wesley
    Bench: C. Mihm
    Bench: Mike James
    Bench: T. Lue

    And my recent additions:
    • Waiver 1: T. Lue for S. Telfair pending until Oct 6
    • Waiver 2: D. Wesley for B. Wells pending until Oct 6

    • Waiver 3: M. James for S. Livingston pending until Oct 6

    • Waiver 4: C. Mihm for N. Krstic pending until Oct 6


    I think I'm gonna have a power house of a team this year.

    Pretty good...

    Except...I would be suprised if you actually picked up all of those players off wires. Livingston, Wells and Krstic should be coveted pickups by many. My suggestion would be to make sure you put the player you covet most as the first waiver position as their is a priority system as it relates to picking up guys.

    Oh, and I dunno about that Tim Thomas pick...I'm sure you can do better than that. :)

    My turn. :)

    Here is my draft:

    I got the last pick in the first round but I made the best of it. lucky me! :) Draft BIG baby!

    Brad Miller
    J O'neal
    Z. Ilgauskas
    E. Okafor
    C. Anthony
    D. Marshall
    M. Okur
    S. Cassell
    B. Knight
    J. Childress
    J. Posey
    C. Kaman
    J. Foster

    After some early trades my new team is:

    S. Cassell
    J. Childress
    B. Knight
    J. Posey
    J. O'Neal
    E. Okafur
    B. Miller
    Z. Ilgauskas
    J. Przybilla
    A. Iguadala
    C. Kaman
    Z. Randolph
    J. Jaric

    PG's Cassell, Knight, Jaric
    SG's Childress, Posey, Iguadala, Jaric
    SF's Childress, Posey, Iguadala
    PF's J Oneal, Okafor, Randolph
    C's Okafor, Miller, Ilgausksas, Przybilla, Kaman

    I have alot of players who can play multiple positions which I like and I think I can be competitive/dominant in 6/7 out of 9 categories:

    FG%, (FT% - maybe), REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO

    I'm thinking about trading one of my centers to improve my assists and steals...

    When did you guys draft, and where? I don't even have this pre-draft list you guys are talking about.

    Thanks, are you guys talking abut the one on nba.com? It's this fantasy league, but it also has a salary cap.

    I'm using Yahoo as it will be good practice for the PistonsForum.Com league.

    Multi position players

    I'm the same way. All things being equal, I always put a premium on guys that are available for multiple positions. G/F are my favourite in Yahoo because they can play so many different positions.

    That's a pretty sweet team, but I'd get rid of Cassell...Posey's probably not gonna get a lot of touches neither...I'd try to find someone who thinks the Heat's gonna be full of power houses and package them both (or throw in Pryzbilla or Kaman) for a better PG or SF. Knight and Jaric should be enough assist to keep you going.

    Any of you guys want to get on the nba.com one until this one stars off. Because I can't find many people in that, and I'm signed up for it.

    Well, I got Cassell and Posey for next to nothing so I'm hoping they might be sleepers. Cassell is definitely going to get some run this year...I'm crossing my fingers that he starts off hot so I can possibly upgrade with a trade later. Posey is a question mark too but if he stays healthy and gets some burn I have a stat monster on my hands.

    why is yahoo so ignorant

    I dont have mcdyess but I was wondering why yahoo only lists him as a pf when he subs for both c and pf. it would seem to me that he plays both. yahoo just dont get it or something. anybody else see any players that dont get credit for playing other positions ? doesnt oneil play some center as well??

    Yahoo updates the positions throughtout the year based on performance/trends of lineups. They did the same thing for Amare. I expect them to do the same for Dwight Howard this year.

    Not bad. You have some field goal pct. killers on your team though. Parker, Griffin and Barry will shoot you into oblivion. Parker has never translated well as a fantasy player. Griffin is too inconsitent but good in blocks. ..and Barry has vanished as a fantasy b-ball contributer since leaving Seattle. He simply just does not get the minutes or put up the stats he used to when he was a monster in assists, field goal pct., free throw pct., 3 point shots and low turnover ratio.

    Great job with Kaman and Deng...they are great sleeper picks that most people have neglected in their draft. You will love Brad Miller on your team...he does SO much (rebounds, assists, free throws, field goal pct, low turnovers, points)!

    I had dyess last year and they never updated it. I had Oneil as well and he was only a pf. I get why they have the positions that way you couldnt run all pgs and sgs (why somone would do that is beyond me but) but they dont give the benifit of the doubt on a big man like they do with guards (most of the guards can play all 3 guard positions not all but most) plus the fact that there just are not that any centers period you would think they would let you get away with it but sigh its not a perfect world.
