Oh well, didn't think he'd make it back to me.

Good pick with Wall...I expect a breakout season.

...thanks man...just trying to do too many things. I know you're just messing with me, but I didn't wanna make you guys wait. Didn't think the call will take that long...

You're still sitting pretty. Lots of talent will be there on the turn.

32) GoldenThroat - Blake Griffin, F
33) Lowest Merion - Paul Millsap, F

Boy, I was thinking if you could have landed Rondo and then Griffen. Wow! Still, I like your strategy. Very JRGesque.

Personally, I think Rondo's a bit overdrafted, even in the Howard strategy. I don't know if I would have taken him in the 4th round, even if he was there. He would have been a candidate, but not a for sure pick.

My main concern with Griffin is his health. That ACL is gonna go flying into the 12th row one of these days.

My main concern with Blake Griffin is that he sucks in fantasy basketball.

No blocks, no, steals, no threes, and murders your FT%

He's basically the new David West. Except that he also happens to be the most overhyped player in the league at the same time.

He's 1st Round value in a punt FT% model. I have 3 of the Top 10 fantasy players in the league in Howard, Smith, & Griffin in this build, with Howard being #1. Griffin was a no-brainer pick there.

I don't think so because he doesn't block shots.

In a punt FT model, Dwight Howard is definitely a top 5 fantasy player though.

He's a Top 10 player in the punt FT% model under various algorithms. Dwight's always the #1 guy in this build.

For example, basketballmonster has Dwight at #1, Smith at #7, and Griffin at #9 in a punt FT% model.

Full disclosure, I really dislike Blake Griffin. I hope he massively underperforms.
I'll take Rudy Gay

Vishnu takes Kyle Lowry, G.

I'm definitely going for a home-run in Gordon. I think he has just as much upside as Derrick Rose, but of course there is the injury history. There were safer options on the board, but I don't pick again for a long time so I have to take a chance to get a guy I want when I see one. As for Conley, he's definitely not a sexy pick, but he's rock solid. If Gordon doesn't pan out, I still have three young guys I can build on in the future.

Mike Conley
Eric Gordon
