    Nerlens Noel will show every team that passed on him what they are missing by.... sitting on the bench for a year! Take that!

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I heard about Noel.

    btw i had my fantasy draft over the weekend and managed to end up with Westbrook, Kobe, and Rondo. didn't really want to take on a lot of injury risk but they kept falling, and i couldn't resist.

    if they get back on the court i can team those three up with Marc Gasol and Paul George, which i think would be an otherworldly starting lineup - - but i wonder if i'm taking on way too much risk. tbh i have a feeling that Boston will try to hold out Rondo as much as possible, so i will prolly drop him if i get a shot at a breakout waiver wire player

    whats youre league set-up? in other words how large is your bench? i like westbrook and kobe, not a fan of rondo - he may not return until next year. if youre going to draft injured players then target their backups in later rounds to leverage your risk

    it's pretty shallow - i start PG SG SF PF C and two utility players. and four bench spots. H2H with weekly roster changes

    yeah, youre going to have a rough time of it for the first couple of weeks depending on how long kobewest come back. if its 1 month into the season i think youre looking good

    i agree completely. Westbrook is said to be missing 6 weeks at the outside, and i'm hopeful Kobe takes a similar timeline or less. i would be thrilled to go something like 3-3 during those weeks, and then field a beastly lineup going forward. this is my first time trying this strategy so we'll see how it goes. i'm normally injury risk averse and i started out that way (i even passed on taking Wade twice!) but then i kind of lost my mind

    i would have done the same probably. this years draft is really deep and a lot of the 2nd and 4th rounders swapped position this year. Guys like p. george, k.leonard, rubio, batum are all solid 2nd round picks while guys like perennial 1/2nd rounders are now available 3rd round and lower - J. SMith, Millsap, P. Gasol - even when I think they will have top top3 round value at the lowest. Makes for a fun auction draft

    about melo imo it's all blown out of the proportion by media
    he's just jealous of spotlight Dwight/Lebron had and he wants a primadonna moment of his own
    maybe for the sake of the season he shouldn't talk about it now, but all he did was being honest
    so don't overreact
