At the beginning of this draft my hair was brown and nut sac was taut.
Now; however, as this draft has gradually crept on my luxurious mane has thinned whilst turning silver and my once envied magic marble bag is now dilapidated and stretched like an old worn and haggard sock with two golf balls in the bottom swinging to and fro like a sad, sad pendulum. Where has the time gone?
Round 3 write up...
3.1 TekOpp - James Johnson - the man played very well last year, filled the stat sheet and then got paid. Probably starts at PF.
3.2 Naveen - Dwight Howard - meh. Not quite the player he was 10 years ago. Also, only good for one build.
3.3 Baller7037 - Willie Cauley-Stein - I like WCS and hope he gets the starting 5 role. Sacramento is a weird one and I hope he doesn't get pushed aside for a vet.
3.4 Wesbaedke - George Hill should do well to start the season and trail off as the play-offs become a drunk kings' fan dream. Hopefully healthier this year - he could easily put up top 50 stats.
3.5 TekOpp [Acquired Via Trade] - Trevor Ariza good value here - steals and threes baby!
3.6 Jasonuoft [Acquired Via Trade] - Tim Hardaway Jr. The Knicks braintrust clearly smoked meth and then paid this guy $17mil. He will get minutes. Not sure what his ceiling is. Might try to out inefficient shoot Melo this year.
3.7 DaRuhl - Malcolm Brogdon - love the pick. The kid is steady and provides balance across the board. (I wanted him)
3.8 Phil O'Pastry - Nikola Mirotic - no contract... no problem? Well, maybe. If he is signed he suddenly becomes the first option on a Bulls teams looking to suck more than a Dyson Vacuum.
3.9 Bricks - Willy Hernangomez - Like the pick. Should start and out perform this spot. His competition is missing the first 12 games do to a PED ban.
3.10 Jasonuoft - Jonas Valanciunas - I like him way more than his coach does... great percentages and rebounds.
3.11 Jasonuoft [Acquired Via Wager] - Josh Richardson, high upside and the man just got paid... A sneaky great pick.
3.12 Dasein - Thaddeus Young - Thad does what he does. Rebounds, steals, shoots great FG can't shoot a FT,
I liked both Jrue and Schroeder. My team wouldn't be able to handle the T/Os from Schroeder and I don't know how Jrue will fare as a SG. Rondo, despite his deficiencies can pass so that might bode well.
8.7 Trey Lyles
3.1 Baller7037 - Jordan Clarkson
@baller7037 not a terrible pick. I was a little surprised to see you draft another guard. Have you considered just calling your team "The Young Lakers"? Joking aside I expect Clarkson to out perform this draft slot (with the caveat:) so long as Russell doesn't go full out Kobe. I think Clarkson will probably be the most roto friendly Laker this year.
3.2 TekOpp - Kent Bazemore
@Tek This is probably my least favorite pick this round - pretty much for the same reason as @lilstinkylynx spoke about my Crowder selection. I think there were better players on the board. I like his across the board production and see how he fits with your team - I do wonder if he would have been available later.
3.3 Wesbaedke - Gary Harris
@wesbaedke not much to say. I LOVE Gary Harris and was fortunate enough to have him last year - the kid improved across the board in his sophmore season and is criminally underrated. I think he's going to solidify himself as a great roto SG this season and will easily out perform his ADP. Huge keeper potential. 3's, steals, great percentages and I expect more assists.
3.4 Ddomrow - Rudy Gay
@ddomrow I am negatively biased. I am a Raptor fan and saw the very worst of Gay. He is forever on my DND list. Great upside and a premier forward. Should live up to this spot no problem and brings top 45 upside.
3.5 Boyet401 - Jabari Parker
@boyet401 I like this pick a lot. Parker killed it at the end of last season and built a great chemistry with Giannis. Parker's FG% is stupid good and I expect him to take a giant leap forward. If he starts nailing 3's congrats - you've just got yourself a top 30 player.
3.6 Phil O'Pastry - George Hill
Was a safe pick for me and gives me another point guard. I'm not expecting a top 50 return, but I am expecting him to thrive in Snyder's system - top 70-85 is what I expect.
3.7 Bricks - Avery Bradley
@bricks point guard scarcity and a defined role on the Celtics. A great source of 3's and steals. The Celtic media have being reporting he's been working on his play making which would be a nice addition to his game.
3.8 Jasonuoft - Dwyane Wade
@jasonuoft I'll be honest, I have no idea what to expect from Wade this season. The pairing with Rondo is awkward at best, due to their contentious play-off history/fights and the fact that both of them, along with Butler are ball dominant players. I am not sure how that wing and guard play will work out. Drafting at 92... this could be a pretty damn good pick - the risk is worth it.
3.9 Tonym - Ryan Anderson
@tonym this is my favorite pick this round easily. Ryno and D'Antoni are made for each other. If he can stay healthy I think this could be a throw back top 20 player. 3's on that offense and rebounds will be abundant. Plus I expect him to get minutes at the 5. I think 70 is his floor this season and I expect big things from him.
3.10 Dasein - Rodney Hood
@tonym like the pick and the kid a lot. He has keeper written all over him. My only concern is the additions of Hill, Joe Johnson and the return of Burks from injury. On any other team Hood would be "the man". I love this kid's upside.
3.11 DaRuhl - Thaddeus Young
@DaRuhl this is in line with yout team building. I like Thad, I just don't know what to expect on a very deep Pacers team. I expect Jefferson and Turner to start. Thad was dynamite last season down the stretch. I see low floor and low ceiling. A safe pick.
3.12 Lilstinkylynx - Jeremy Lin
@lilstinkylynx I like Lin for this year as he's expected to be the man with Lopez. His stats have been great when stars have been injured around him. I expect him to have a career year and put up top 50 value. My concerns with him are 3 fold.
1. Turnovers.... eek.
2. FG% - I wonder how he will do on such a bad team when he's getting double and triple teamed.
3. Ouch... even more turnovers - refer to #2.
He might be much better suited for head to head than roto. A great gamble for a team as loaded as yours.
