Default Team building game 2013. Now with coaches and a prize that isnt worth your time.

Ive done this...5-6 times. Most recently in 2011. Always nice to see what ISH comes up with. Some of you have built 4-5 teams each time. Some dont give a damn...both are fine by me.


Changes....


You must make a 12 man roster with a head coach. So you have 13 selections to make. You could take all players tll group 6 and end up with a garbage coach who ruins everything. Or you could start with group 2 and get an all time great coach more likely to bring it together.Up to you....but hopefully this time we get a lot of diversity.You cant get say...Jordan with Phil though because starting with the top level drops you straight...to level 4.

Im making it harder to use the elites each tme just to be a dick.

Id like to stress.....not everyone is ranked by who I think is best...but mostly by who I think ISH would want. For example....I do not thik Reggie is as good as a #2. But some do...so I want to make him hard for them to get.Adrian Dantley didnt do much for me...some of you numbers addicts cant get over 30ppg on 55% shooting. Want him...use a #2 to get him.

Start with a group one you get:

1 from group 1
3 from group 4
4 from group 5
3 from group 6
2 from group 7


Start with group two you get

2 from group 2
1 from group 3
3 from group 4
3 from group 5
2 fom goup 6
2 from group 7

So say you get MJ...jump to 4...you could add Hubie Brown as coach, Iggy to be his Pippen, and Larry Nance. Or get 3 players and move to #5 to find a coach. But before its done...you must use a pick on a coach.


Who has the balls to still take a group one player?


And yes...I know someone is probably listed in two groups after many edits.....I do not give a damn.

Winner(as judged by me) gets an amazon gift card of a to be determined value by email. Might be 10....might be 20. Who knows.





Group 1.


No coach is worth a player on this level so they are not an option at #1


Jordan 87-93
Shaq 94-02
David Robinson(90-96)
Lebron(07-13)
Dirk(06-now)
Oscar robertson(peak)

Default Re: Team building game 2013. Now with coaches and a prize that isnt worth your time.

Sample team...not my final team which ill be bored enough tomorrow at work to make....

Starting with #2...

(2)Pop as coach
(2)Ewing as player
(3)Rondo
(4)Dale Ellis
(4)AK47
(4)Alan Houston
(5)Christie
(5)Darrell Armstrong
(5)Mark Eaton
(6)Dell Curry
(6)Battier
(7)Anthony Parker
(7)Chris Childs

Not as talented as it could be but with Pop coaching...its contending

Rondo/Darrell/Curry/Childs
Dale Ellis/Houston
Christie/Battier
Ak47/Battier
Ewing/Eaton

Not really a team id put against the star lineups sure to come but id like to see Pop run small ball with that lineup.

Um.....day the real playoffs start. Bit of a break after the season ends. I expect to be bored enough to read the topic start to finish and judge it fairly.

Default Re: Team building game 2013. Now with coaches and a prize that isnt worth your time.

I like team building exercises though I have a different philosophy on team building than most, so I'll most likely participate after I go through the available picks.

And I'm still going to build a team around at least one group 1 player anyway. During the last one that took place during the lockout, you said, "I doubt Magic, Bird, or Duncan even get taken. The only level 1s I see getting picked are Jordan, Hakeem, and Shaq," and I picked someone other than those three just to be original and because no one else would do it. Doing the same thing everyone else would do is boring. I'll have to see what the options are this time and think about it when I have time.

This tme ill say Doctor J is the not getting picked guy. And I had Drk is both 1 and 2 and couldnt decide....so I left him in #1 to make his fans make a tough call.

Durant is also hard. He doesnt feel like a tier 1...but hes so tempting as a #2. Durant and Phil Jackson to start? Or Durant and Ewing?

I might have to bump him up.......

I agree, as no one's going to start with him over Jordan, Shaq, LeBron, etc.

I also had a question. One of my projects actually involves team building, and for some I have draft lists of players for roles I want to fill. Would it be possible to select players that are unlisted, but getting the ruling from you which group they would qualify for IYO, or is it just "these are your options, these are your choices?" I don't imagine anyone else would have any unlisted players in mind anyway, but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask, as the worst you could say is no.

Coach: Larry Bird (4)

Steph Curry (4)/ Kirk Hinrich (6)
Doug Christie (5)/ Michael Cooper (6)
LeBron James (1)/ Hedo Turkoglu (5)/ Shane Battier (6)
Horace Grant (5)/ Earl Clark (7)
Marc Gasol (4)/ Larry Sanders (7)/ Tyson Chandler (5)

Earl Clark wouldn't play too much. Battier/LeBron/Turkoglu would play the 4 at times.

Just did one quickly. Might do another one later.
