    Every player on his team outside of Durant is trending down in reputation.

    Super close. Not crazy about either team. Rgiss built solid rotation by foregoing a "established star" and relying on Simmons to be the man. I think I would have gone with a small starting 5 of Simmons/ Booker/ Beale/Porter/ Capela. Would have been tough to stop and with very good defenders anchoring at 1 & 5.

    Addy had KD but complementary cast is average-ish. All the bigs are slow.

    Edge Rgiss.

    John Wall is not. He had a bad injured year. I think he will bounce back and many expect that as well at 28. I also Expect Wiggins to be better than last year. He is really young still. His contract sucks and he has efficiency issues but I still expect a 22 year old to get better next season. I am not sure what will happen with Love but he is going to have a jump in stats this year as the focal point.

    I agree with that statement in regards to his bench and to Howard.

    I don't know what reality you live in, but Wall definitely is trending down. Has major knee and personality issues.

    They have had team on court issues but his knee is recovered and he looked good in the playoffs besides his 3 point shot. He averaged 26 ppg and 11.5 assists.

    Some of that drama was with Gortat who is gone.

    He will have a better year than he did last year unless he gets a new injury. The injury derailed his season.

    But I guess we will see. Personally I would be shocked if he doesnt play better than last year when he was hobbled and missed half the season.

    Yeah, Im not alone. Pretty much everyone in here has said they dont like your lineup. Starting Young over Booker is a bad choice. But it didnt effect my voting.

    I just think it's funny that you think that one player is better than 6 borderline/flat out all stars

    I dont think he is 1 on 6 better. He obviously has a team around him. His talent is just beyond anyone on your team and that makes a big difference. Lebron on any team in the East is the best team. KD isnt quite at that level but he is close. But I also think he is better at PF and PG. Its pretty close but ill take the team with the Super Star when its close. He can take over the game and win it. You dont have anyone who can take a game over.

    So you think he is going to be worse next year than he was in a season where he was hobbled most of the year?

    This is for next year not last year. I think he will be back and healthy. He is a really good player.

    That's fair. I'd argue Booker can take over a game, but it's not close to KD. That said, I still think I have a good enough team to where it doesn't matter, like the Jazz vs the Clippers last year.

    Yeah, it's definitely a 7 game series and I could have voted differently on a different day.

    I usually like how Addie drafts, they are gimmicky but they work in a fun way. But his starting line-up and bench is too static. Not much there to shake things up.

    If they're even like you said, the fact that Simmons is 6'11 alone makes it Simmons >>>>> Wall for me.... Everyone has their own preference but I take rookie Simmons over Wall 10/10 times even with out a jump shot.

    The feedback about the roster I picked is a lot weaker than I expected. As Hekate said I always try something new every year. This time I wanted to go for names that shine more on people's minds subconsciously while voting. I suspect the majority of the voters don't read the write-ups, posts, even subs, and just spend about 1 minute to check the starters and evaluate before voting. I don't like my roster neither. I think I'll go back to another method from now on.

    aren't his knees slowly degenerating ? Hasn't he had some kind of procedure pretty much every year in recent memory ?

    I though someone like that would go at least he is Dwight. He'll be enough. I also missed Porzingis with one slot. Screw my luck I guess.

    Although I gotta say, John Wall has always been underrated in here for some reason.
