    championship team?

    kinda bad in steals? rondo gets 2 a game paul george gets 1.6, stephen curry 1.5, lebron 2, demarcus cousins 1.5, oj mayo 1. i think im pretty set there
    all my centers block excluding pekovic and lebron blocks pretty well for a small forward.
    so i guess that makes it 4 cats including those blocks and steals that you overlooked right?
    also, all of my centers ft% is 70 percent and over, and rondo? he's been making all of his free throws in the preseason, 78% to be exact and kevin martin and steph curry? they avg 88% on their freethrows. thanks for giving me a long response i appreciate that but i think you might need to do research before drafting your team this year, kudos!

    • You're not in a real deep league Andy, so you're gonna have to be better than OK in a stat before I would say you're good to go there, so if you think you're the only team that has shot blockers and guys that get steals, well you're mistaken. I actually ran the numbers on your team here and looked at it objectively.
      Yes you have players that are good at certain things, but I looked at your team as a whole in the context of a shallow league. It does not scream "hand me the trophy now". I'll stand by my earlier advice, but I'll be happy if you're squad proves me wrong.
      Thanks for the solid advice on doing my research, I'll start by checking how awesome Evan Turner looks in a 10 team league. Or maybe examining Curry's ankles, or Kemba Walkers amazing FG%, or Mayos, or Rondos. Perhaps I'll start with Kevin Martin's gradual decline and lack of confidence from his coach. Maybe I should look into Brooke Lopez's feet and his inability to get boards, and the fact that he is playing for the first time when he is not the first option, but the 3rd or 4th.
      Good luck to you and your dream team.

      • you lost your attempt at being objective when you called said i was bad in the steals department, i have three of the top 10 thieves in my team...yeah, kind of lost all your credence with that statement. sure, i took gambles on stephen curry and maybe even brook lopez's inability to rebound but imo the rewards/upside far outweigh the risks and fantasy proves to be more fun when you take those risks. For the record, a 10 team league is not considered "shallow" its considered pretty average....is this your first time playing fantasy?
