    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    And one of the worst current sports organizations on Earth- but RJ is playing okay, getting experience and it is all bout that second contract.

    An appetizer before the Duke-MSU begins --- Wendell Carter Jr. given $15 to pick his all-time Duke team.

    Severe recency bias and does JJ dirty mid-selection...

    No love for Zion? He losses credibility in his picks with that omission. GoDuke!

    I'd go with

    Laettner $5
    Williams $4
    Brand $3
    Justise $2
    Singler $1

    Singler for $1 and Brand for $3 are absolute steals. Jason Williams at $4 is also a steal. Hard to not take Hill or Shane...

    Zion - $5
    JWill - $4
    Dawkins - $3 (crazy steal)
    Deng - $2
    Ferry - $1 (another crazy steal)

    I think people are forgetting just how great were Bobby Hurley, Shane Battier, JJ Redick, and Grant Hill.

    The game has a $15 "salary cap" - the 4 you mention cost $18 according to the chart and you would still have a spot to fill. It's just a fun game but requires trade-offs! That said, arguing about the assigned values could go on all day.

    The problem is that Hill and Redick were both $5 and Battier and Hurley were both $4. With only $15, you have to make very tough choices.

    That said, I would probably spend $5 on Grant Hill and then go from there. Sorry Zion.

    For reference sake, here's how B/R valued each player:

    $5 - Zion, Laettner, Kyrie, JJ, Grant
    $4 - Shane, RJ, Jayson, JWill, Hurley
    $3 - Elton, Carlos, BI, Marvin, Johnny D.
    $2 - Jabari, Justics, Luol, Jah, Nolan
    $1 - Grayson, Tyus, Rodney, Ferry, Singler

    Laettner, Shane, J-Will, Grayson and Singler.

    Beat me, I dare you.

  15. #935
    Grant $5
    JWill $4
    Elton $3
    Justise $2
    Ferry $1

    I win.

    I refuse to believe that Grayson, Singler, Battier, and Laettner together could ever lose a game because of the sheer willpower. J-Will is window dressing at that point. I could substitute Duhon and have leftover cash.

    Sidenote: Ferry for $1? That's the deal of the century.

    Am I allowed to just take the $2 line + the $1 line and run the rest of you into the dirt with my crazy depth?

    That's how I would spend $5 of my $15, too. Hill is the best at-his-peak player on this list and was on pace to be historically great.

    If the $ amounts roughly hew to perceived value add/skill, then Elton is a steal at $3. No way a couple of those other guys (RJ, Jayson, maybe even JJ) should be valued more highly than he is!

    So, I am guessing this is college career without any consideration of pro success, right?

    Kyrie does not belong on the same line with those other $5 guys.
    RJ and Jayson are not in the same zip code as two NPOYs and the career assist leader
    Elton and Johnny are both National Player of the Year winners... for $3 each!?!?
    Jah on the $2 line is a bargain... he was a 1st team All-American and strong NPOY contender. Nolan is the only other guy on that line who is even worth considering.
    Danny Ferry for $1 is a joke. He could arguably be on the $4 line and it would not be outrageous.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.
