Knowing what I ended up with (Holiday and Young) I'm still not sure if trading Curry was the right move. I think it was, but...

Nope. I understand trading him but you should've hung on to him.

Curry is playing at an MVP level (yep I said it). Juror is coming on his own but, man, Steph is on a whole different level right now. His last 5 games, he's lava hot. Shooting 46% from the floor, a whopping 57% from threes. An he's doing it defensively as well.

Ha, MVP level? Yoki me thinks that be hyperbole. He's hot right now, but he's gonna get cold, and his passing is just all over the place.

But if he can keep his 3pt% above 40% and stay healthy, there is a good chance I made a small error there. Thad young and Jrue are playing well though.

Who had Evan Turner?

Who was on the 2011 Kings? They sound like a team that could be easily beaten by a Kyle Lowry/James Harden backcourt and a staunch, tough, totes healthy Bogut/Stoudemire frontcourt.

In all honesty, if injuries didn't matter and this game was a video game, I still like that team better in theory.
Yeah in theory Derrick Williams should be able to guard Lebron James of 2011-2012. But then again in theory, being six foot tall I should be able to dunk, even at 47 years old. In theory.

I think that's pretty spot on. He needs a healthy season before people will believe in him.

Ha, we'll DW being able to guard Lebron wasn't the biggest part of my defense. It was more centered around Amare still being the amare he looked like during his first half season with the Knicks.

There was also something in there about Bogut being some great center....something like that. And....I guess he is but then again so is Greg Oden. ;)

For 2/3 of a beautiful season Bogut looked like the uncontested 2nd best center in the league, with a pretty convincing case for DPOY. Whenever I see Andrew Bogut, I plan to say, 'We'll always have 2010, big guy.'

Have you followed Bogut this season? His play has been underwhelming (not bad, just rusty) and he went down. But he's one tough sonofabiscuit. I love his quotes.

Speaking of tough guys, Nik Pekovic, I love that guy.

Yeah.

Because GM's are pessimistic. They wouldn't give even a tiny bit of positive on situations like Curry. Can't blame me though. Injuries and bad seasons are 50/50 in this setup. It really depends on how you defend it. But I think having Curry over Jrue has no setbacks whatsoever.

Felon and Anthony!

When you say 2011 kings do you mean the best team in Modern CB Draft History?  MVP, Finals MVP and DPOY on the same team.  Not to mention a player with a strong case for MIP (millsap)  That team was unstoppable.  My only regret was not building the team around Lebron as full time point guard.

I love Pekovic.

True story, I picked him in the 2009 or 2010 Pick 2 Draft(can't remember which) when just about no one had ever heard of him. In retrospect, perhaps my best draft pick in any draft on this blog.

Since I'm totally one to brag, I had Pekovic on both my 2008 squad (the Amare/Horford/Gay/Iggy team) and the 2009 World Champion Portland CrotoNats.

My overseas stash on that 2008 was impressive:  Pekovic, Asik, Erden, Arroyo
