No. No, it doesn't.

My lawyers should have already been in contact with your people re: you biting my style in two straight drafts.

Feel free to grab yourself a quality 2 Guard, but I feel like Nick's gonna beat you to him.

I also don't think this team is a contender. Good stats, sure. Don't know if a team built around Thompson-Vasquez-Randolph is a playoff team, though.

Your players aren't good enough. When ZBo made the 2nd roundm it was two years ago and Marc Gasol was the 2nd best player on the team. Gasol is significantly better than both Vasquez and Thompson.  Conley Jr. is arguably a better PG than Vasquez and that Memphis team's defense was far better than what you can create now.

Also, that was two years ago and ZBo has regressed.

ZBo is still a top-5 (if not top-3) rebounder in the league still, right? Klay would start on nearly every team in the league. 16.4 ppg in year 2. Greivis is more of an assisting PG than Conley, which can get the rest of the players going. His rebounding prowess is just a plus. Fits way better than Conley, seeing as I'm not going for a defensive stalwart, but an offensive juggernaut.

Greivis Vasquez is an undeniably talented point guard, but I don't think he's better than the actual point guard Randolph's been playing with. A lot of the success the Griz enjoy is because of the underrated defense that Gasol provides, and the overwhelming defense they enjoy on the perimeter. On top of that Gasol is an extremely talented passer.

You've lost that defense, and won't get it back (there are only a handful of centers on Gasol's level defensively), and to my eyes you've lost the defensive edge on the perimeter and downgraded the talent of your point guard.

You can maybe recover with the picks coming up, but it's going to require lots of savvy and some luck.

You need a team with ZBo to have the players to cover for him defensively.  Thompson is a good player, but he's not a number 2 on a contender. For example the 2nd option on the two teams in the finals last year were Dwyane Wade and Russell Westbrook. He's not that good. And fwiw, Vasquez was on that Grizzlies team and was shipped out because he wasn't as good as Conley.

No. No, it doesn't.
I don't have a player that looks like Lillard but I have one that looks like Dolph Lungren



And yes, I plan on stealing IP's SG.

Gotta admit. Chicago is looking like a fine team. If you find clear-cut number one option and this team could do some damage. No one is scoring on you guys though.

And also, Vasquez may not have been as good as Conley at the time (they needed more PT for one or the other) but note that this year, he is in EVERY article discussing MIP. He is almost a guaranteed nominee for Most Improved... he's having a Rondo year and will only improve.

Joakim Noah at Center can't stop ZBo at PF even. If I get the Center I want in round 2, it'll be second chance points galore for this team. Plus rebounders everywhere.
