I'm sorry I'm probably not going to bother write up a review after Migya,BEAST etc have been blasting my team.
It's an argument I can never win & that I can never prove due to there being no way to prove it with a fantasy season etc

You drafted Andrew Bogut in a legends draft.
the legends draft will always have issues because of the evolution of talent over the years. theres no damn way George Mikan would stand a chance against Dwight Howard. Dwight probly wouldn't even have to jump to swat all his shots. A 6'11 260 athletic machine could play in any era.
Nash, the ultimate distributor & NBA's leading shooter all time (% wise). Not the best defender but is surrounded by 4 defensive BEASTS to make up for it. Jordan can handle the scoring & leadership and yadda yadda. Worthy is who he is, the quiet worker that every team needs... but doesn't seem to garner enough attention. Rodman for rebounds/defense, Mourning for low post scoring/shot blocking.
PG: Deron Williams/KJ
SG: Kobe Bryant/Eddie Jones
SF: Eddie Jones
PF: Chris Webber
C: Dwight Howard
Chris would fit perfectly next to D12 as Chris was more of a elbow jumper type of 4 opposed to low post. If I wanted to go all defense the line up would be:
and I still have Yao Ming to ensure our global prosperity ($$$$)

Alright so since Beast Mode had all modern players it was easiest to review his team. Don't know if I can do every team in the league though since there are guys I don't know a lot about.
What I like most:
Kobe and Jordan pairing – while some may not like it I can see Kobe taking a backseat to MJ. In fact, I think MJ is one of the few guys in the world he would defer to. And while you have Kobe as a backup I can see him willing to adopt a Pippen like mentality and thrive on court with MJ.
Doc Rivers – a modern team needed a modern coach.
What I don't like:
Too much from modern era. Not enough basketball history in this team and that has to factor in somewhere. I would say (personal rule/opinion) players with <10 years experience can't be relied upon heavily for big minutes. That somewhat devalues some of your picks.
Point Guards – your first two picks have had great careers without ever relying on a really great passing point guard. I would have looked for PG's with more defensive ability like Dumars or Payton. Nash's offense makes up for some but KJ I don't see how he fits. (Edit – you have Dwill as second string which helps a bit)
Small Centers – How much playing time can Yao handle? Outside of him the bigs are at a constant size advantage and when going against all-time talent this problem will be exploited. Btw Chris Webber seems like the kind of guy who would not thrive in a "Legends League".
Overall impression: The team will fail to live up to it's hype. There will be high expectations at the start. They may not meet them right away but eventually will turn things around. However, as they approach the Finals, there weaknesses will be exploited. (2010-2011 Heat)
Jeg er ikke enig.... Jeg kan godt lide at spise din mors gris ben.
I think that is a great idea. DO you want to private vote or do it public. I don't care with either.
why dont you just do 1-7, 7 being least favorite, and whoever gets the least amount of points wins...
but yeah im for it... here are my votes
2- jreed (very, very close to getting my number 1 vote)
5- i have pawndawg and fine as a tie, but thats not gonna work in terms of voting. so, i flipped a coin and it landed on tails so that give pawno 5th place
So it's not a reach when it's my last pick or 2nd last pick in the draft. I said he would be put at the end of the bench kind of like Christian Laettner in the dream team (He is a former 1st round 1st pick).
It's not like Bogut is even in my rotation, I grabbed him because he is the 2nd best shot blocker in the league and this was a weakness on my team that I addressed. CASE CLOSED *IGGA!!!
1. Migya- The strongest team IMO, but not by much. Good overall selection of picks from beginning to end.
2. GSW Hoops Fan- Strong final picks (plus Phil Jackson) allowed you to jump over JREEd for #2
3. JREED- Possible the best front court when Nowitzki's career is all said and done.
4. Fine- No arguments about your team. Barely beat out by the top three
5. Beast Mode- Jordan, Kobe, Howard is a legit big three (plus Doc is a good coach). Jones was overrated for me, and Deron is a bit too young for me as a legend.
6. Pawno- Lacking an elite bigment (Parrish was great, but i think he benefitted for his longevity versus dominance skill... he was just really good for a long time, not really great). However, with that said, your team isn't nearly as bad as people make it to be. I wouldnt have chosen those last 2 picks, plus Nelson, but you got lots of good picks.
7. 8th Ave- Questionable final 5 picks. Though you picked a great coach and have an abundant of great bigmen, you lack elite shooters from midrange/outside.
I like JReed's team best tbh. Dirk next to Shaq is disgusting.
no dude... i have THE best defensive team... and im not even kidding
russell gets moved to the 4
DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY ALL DEFENSIVE SELECTIONS I HAVE?!?!?!
Well, GSW Hoops Fan, there is a website that does sell software that would allow to simulate a season with our teams. The website is
THis is the website the guys at si.com used to do their legendary draft. Maybe if I save some money, I will buy it for the forum next year.
