    not true. You base most of your opinions on stats, advanced stats, etc. Although there are many things that stats do not account for. There are critical factors in the game of basketball.. I'll give you two of them. Leadership and chemistry. I'm not a stats person.. If I was I would believe monta Ellis is a beast. Josh smith is a superstar. VBG has hated on my team just as you did. I just think he's got a team that would work better than yours.

    Dirk and kg would not be good together as much as you want to pretend they will be. Both mid range on offense which means no offensive boards hibbert would grab so many defensive rebounds. And who would
    Vbgs go to scorer be if Lebron guards dirk. Doest have a Person to play second fiddle to dirk.

    But he does when KG steps out and plays PnR/PnP with Lawson. There are no stats to prove that, but I'm sure you have seen Hibbert is slow. He had to be taught how to run in college.

    When he steps out. When he steps out and dirk is always out, who plays post up? Vbg is a jumpshooting team, right? You say yungt won't have an inside game, what about vbg? Show me the quote btw

    Problem is Rondo and KG ran PnR all day but the stats are the same...KG never outplayed KG over his career.

    Also jmc's point, KG&Dirk are midrange guys and would grab no boards on offense, Dirk is out there guarding Ilya and would get no defensive rebounds. Ilya is an elite rebounder for PFs, Hibbert easily wins the rebounding duel vs. KG. Add Bron, George and I completely dominate the boards, blocking and he's pretty easy to defend because my guys are quick/tall enough to contest midrange.

    You said yourself kg doesn't get many points posting up. He is a mid range jump shooter. Dirk likes to do the same. They are solid posting up but neither post up that much

    Dirk + KG are still post up threats. They score more effectively on the pick and pop because they go from good threats to unstoppable.

    If you watched the playoffs last year, you could see Hibbert get destroyed in the PnR/PnP.

    Guess what my team is good at running? PnR and Pick and Pop.

    How is Lebron being underrated?

    Garnett > Hibbert.
    Dirk destroys Ilyasova.
    Lawson + Afflalo is around equal (at worst) to Conley + Paul George

    Avery Bradley + Danilo Gallinari + Nic Collison > Klay Thompson + Ed Davis + Danny Green

    So basically Lebron is his only advantage in this thing and he's winning and you're saying Lebron is UNDERRATED?

    Okay now you're still trying to carry the "KG owns Hibbert" myth which I debunked and don't even acknowlege the career matchups which show Bron heavily destroyed Marion and was not worse anyhow in fg% or efficiency over 30+ games.

    Your only points about beating me are not anyhow based on facts or actual games, you don't win the matchups(Bron can guard Dirk with Marion starting), I heavily control the boards, steals and blocking department while having more 3pt shooters and better passers.

    How are you actually gonna win, say it without lying about KG or Marion.

    I'm calling it right now. Whoever loses this will stop drafting indefinitely.

    Pick and roll with Lawson? He is good but Marion and afflalo aren't doing really offensive treats. Conley and George and solid on defense. Other dirk scoring will be your problem

    I voted Yung-T. He seemed to have a similar approach, going for high-efficiency players. Only difference is he got LeBron James and I didn't.

    Thanks, your only weakness is David Lee(super scrub on defense) goin up against Blake, which is why I voted for Donatas. Really like your team, but Lee was a bad choice. :p
