I guess I'll start:

Jrue Holiday
Danny Green
Shawn Marion
David Lee
Tyson Chandler

Sixth Man: J.R. Smith

I'll echo what a lot of people are going to say:  you've got a lot of talent, but it lacks that go-to star-quality player.  I don't think that Jrue can be that guy consistently, and neither can Lee.  Green, Marion, and Chandler are role players (all of whom are good, but none can take over a game offensively.)

I'm disappointed, because this team was built to contend.  You had the elite defenders at SF and C, with good perimeter defense from Green and Holiday.  You had the inside / outside game with Aldridge, who can carry a team's offense.

Sacrificing Aldridge for a downgrade at PF and a talented but injured malcontent seems like a misstep. 

I don't like harping on this, because it causes hurt feelings.  However, the only way I can see you contending again is finding somebody to take that fourth quarter go-to guy role that Aldridge had.

Landry has been traded pending confirmation, so that's pretty much the team right there.

I want to hear this Landry trade.  Disappointed you moved him, but I understand why playing him as a 4th big man was a luxury.

I'll try not to disappoint you and find that guy.

Yeah, i went BPA at that 5th round, that's one blunder I would admit I did this year. Should have just rounded out my starting 5 instead of it.

That SF gap is a big one right now, but I love this team.  It's definitely a top-tier contender.  Everyone has clearly defined roles.  Somebody might say you don't have a "go to" scorer, but I disagree.  I think Lawson, Crawford, and Horford can carry the scoring load.

Said something really similar in the draft thread. The construction of this team is excellent with balanced scoring and elite defense. Come the playoff this team will kill in matchups and go deep, IF Cleveland can fill that SF hole because that will kill them if they can't get that reliable player to hold down opposing star SFs.

Jeff Teague
OJ "I get buckets" Mayo
Jimmy Butler
David West
Tim Duncan

Vet front court with proven toughness. Up in comer at the 3 in Butler. Young athletic backcourt that can score and play defense.

I was building a defensive minded team overall but full of scrappers and guys who can score at will, not just a defensive pillar.

Haven't thought about upcoming picks but I'm thinking more scoring for now.
The Nets will finish with the worst record and the Celtics will end up with the 4th pick.

No takers while I was on my run? Very well, I'll get things started.

Jeff Teague
OJ "I get buckets" Mayo
Jimmy Butler
David West
Tim Duncan

Extremely solid team all around. Any team led by Duncan will be a good one, and you've done a good job amassing talent around him. Teague is a very underrated PG who has stayed out of the spotlight because he's in Atlanta. Mayo had a stellar season last year in Dallas, shooting .407 from three. He was our second choice after Jamal Crawford in the 5th. Air and I love Butler, and we think his potential is right on par with Kawhi's. And David West is just solid in every sense of the word.

Bottom line: Sneaky good team, good job.

Washington
PG: Wall
SG: Thompson
SF: TBD
PF: Amir Johnson
C: Noah
6th man: Toby Harris

The Wall-Noah core is up there with the best PG-C cores. I think Wall is due to explode this season, and you'll benefit from that. You know we wanted Noah, but KG's an okay backup, I suppose. Thompson is a great fit alongside Wall: they cover each other's weaknesses quite well. I'm not as enamored with Amir Johnson as some. I don't think he can be a starter on a contender, although I'll admit he's one tough dude who can do the dirty work. Toby's a better fit as a 6th man, I'd keep him there.

Bottom line: May not contend this year, but the near future is bright.

Damian Lillard
TBD
Wilson Chandler
Greg Monroe 
Andrew Bogut
Bench: Anderson Varejao, Kyle Lowry

I love me some Damian Lillard, I'll tell you that much. Getting a Blazers jersey of his if he signs an extension in a few years. I wish you had focused more on the wings after you hit the reset button with Lillard and Monroe; I think Monroe can hold his own at C. That said, following our recent trade you are able to fill out that last wing spot and then the starting lineup should be looking good. You're getting plenty of flak for Bogut and Varejao's injury records, but if they can stay healthy you are definitely a playoff team.

Bottom line: Can you select a team of physicians with your 6.19?

Jrue Holiday
Danny Green
Shawn Marion
David Lee
Tyson Chandler

Sixth Man: J.R. Smith

For your sake, I'll avoid discussing the LMA trade. Ignoring that, this is a strong defensive team but still one I don't see advancing past the second round of the playoffs. You have a nice bump in scoring in JR Smith, but he plays at the position where one of your best offensive starters already plays in Green. People seem to like the Marion pick; I don't see him as a SF anymore, but that's just me. I like David Lee. I really do. I had him in the pick 2 and made him fairly untouchable. But he's not enough to be the best player on a contender. I had Westbrook next to him in the pick 2.

Bottom line: Should be a deep team when all is said and done, but not expecting many playoff waves.

Okay, I've been hesitant to ask people what they think of my team all draft because I wanted to finish my roster before I do that. But I changed my mind.

PG: Goran Dragic
SG: James Harden
SF: Nic Batum
PF: Al Jefferson
 C: Marcin Gortat

Each of this team's individual parts is great and are above-average options on a playoff team. Dragic and Batum are both extremely underrated. Harden's a franchise player. Jefferson is one of the best scoring big men in the league. Gortat's good all around. But as you know, the Jefferson-Gortat fit isn't great. Once you remedy that, I don't think anyone can say this isn't a title contender.

Bottom line: Make a Jefferson or Gortat trade.

PG: Steve Nash
SG: Gordon Hayward
SF: Chandler Parsons
PF: Josh Smith
C: Chris Bosh

As the proud owner of Josh Smith in the DKC, I know how much crap you can get for having him on your team. You, however, found a great C to put alongside him in Bosh, since Bosh can spread the floor very well. So no problems for me at the 4/5. Parsons is a great third option on a playoff team, and that's exactly what he is here. So no problems at the 3. Hayward and Nash is where I pause. I know they both have some great qualities, and I don't deny them, but it's a very weak defensive back court, especially Nash. That's my only problem, really.

Bottom line: Man that's one white 1-3.

I love the Jazz fan commenters who are all like, " Yeah, every time he's behind a dude in transition, I assume we're getting a block."

"Thanks AB for the commentary on my team. I disagree with one thing (Hayward's defense), but let me talk about your team now."
"Why you're welcome KC. I look forward to that commentary."

To be fair, blocks - and steals - do not measure one's defensive ability whatsoever. That being said, Hayward is seriously an underrated defender considering his physical limitations. He might look like a pale and scrawny, but he can hold his own and uses his body well.

Dear AB,

I like your team a lot. Please do me a favor and knock off either Orlando or Atlanta on your way to the ECF, I don't want to have to beat both of them to make the finals.

Yours, always,

KC

I think thats why I get overlooked a lot. No flash but solid overall.
