    Anyone open to a trade? My weakest point is my bench, although I am pretty certain it is enough to hold the course against pretty much any bench with plus defenders and top shooters and a solid playmaker. But I would like to shore it up. Looking for a savvy vet or length/shooting/D at the wing primarily. Considering offers:


    Curry - Ball

    Green - DiVincenzo

    Brooks - Nance

    Millsap - Warren

    Davis - Baynes

    The title team you won't vote for.....

    Here are my five best players 4 have been All NBA (i.e., top 15):
    KD
    Kyrie
    Oladipo
    Derozan
    Vuc

    Line-ups will depend on match-ups and 3 of these 5 guys will be on the floor at any time. I have complementary role players to go along with the All Star lineup. I'll round out floor depending on match-ups
    Duncan Robinson
    Nurkic
    Derrick White
    Fournier
    Thaddeus Young

    There is no "bench unit" I'll probably start Duncan Robinson, rotate him out early and bring in Derozan to lead the second unit. To manage minutes, Nurkic for Vuc (more minutes if I need better rim protection), Thad for KD.
    I have two elite perimeter defenders in Oladipo and White. White & Nurkic may get burn when I have more than enough scoring and need to bolster defense.

    He can still shoot though. And his shooting volume will most likely go up.

    If you’re on the app as well you can literally just type whatever you want in there and it will pull up any post with that players name.

    Really tough guard line. Pretty weak everywhere else imo.

    It’s only the voting that counts though fwiw. Don’t want anyone to misconstrue my thoughts.

    Only the sim counts.

    We should use the sim to set up the brackets, so that we don't get the top teams matched in round one.

    That’s fine so far as seeding goes. But the winners are based on voting.

    How are lineups and minutes distribution determined by the simulation?

    No idea bromosexual. Never done one before. Not sure we can even manipulate that. If so, the GM should state how many minutes he wants each player to play for the sim.
