LET’S GOOOOOO!!!!

Boom Tom Brady GIF - Boom TomBrady BradyBoom GIFsImage Enlarger

I still can't quite believe we're really back after a year away. I had to pinch myself a few times last night to make sure it was really happening. Then Harry boo'd me right after walking in the gym. So yea, we were really back, almost like we never left.

But we did, we did leave...

Anyway! This is quite the 5v5 Draft season. We were going to have about 6 teams before the 4v4 draft leagues were unfortunately cancelled, and then everyone and 3 of their friends wanted to get into this league. We’re maxed out at an 8 team league with so many rookies and 4v4 guys making the jump to the ‘big’ court that I have no idea what’s going to happen. As such I’ve only been able to separate out the teams into the contenders and pretenders. After week 2 I’ll put out a power ranking every couple weeks 

Quick note:

When you play at 6 PM you cannot enter the building until 6 PM! Please use the doors between 43 and 53 Howard Street, not the main entrance. I’ll be there to unlock at 6 PM, no earlier

The Pretenders

In no particular order...yet!

I’m A Shooter - I felt confident putting this team together last week so I don’t know what’s changed since then to make me put them here. I had two auto-draft teams, and I thought getting this team started out well, with productive 5v5 guys from other leagues. Maybe I misread the tea leaves on these rookies. Yea, that must be it.

Ronin VIII - I’m not sure there’s enough size on this team, but any time you have a rookie captain, who trades up to target a guy he brought into the league, you have to assume he knows he’s good enough to hang. Still, I’m not sure how well this roster was rounded out. Not a lot of size in this league, but even less on this squad.

CAC Top Shot - I can’t believe I’m doubting a Drew Debari led 5v5 Draft League team. He’s got what, 5 titles in this league?!? He brought over the remnants of his Furious Rim Ticklers from B2 5v5, nabbed Thurber and Myatt but didn’t want to / try to trade up for Stanowicz, which I found puzzling. He’s relying on a rookie and Sean Callahan, who, sure, I guess? I don’t know I almost put them in the Contenders based on Drew alone and his relentless 3 point chucking. Offense is going to be HARD to come by in this league. If he’s above a 37% clip from 3 I’ll be moving this team up next time around.

License To Lillard - Harry’s got the most ‘known’ commodities all on one team, but will it matter? Tenney is going to stuff that stat sheet and Randall was a steal at 48. Actually I think the only reason this team is here is because I want to put one of my auto-draft teams in the next category. Yea, let’s just move on.

 

The Potential Contenders 

You Got Tibbs’d - I feel really good about this team. Sure I had to trade up to get Maalouf and give up some hypothetical bench depth that no one actually knows about, but I had to do it. I paired a physical tweener type with a legit 6’5 center-ish type. No other team has that in the league! If Mooch is half the player he was in 2013 this team is a legit threat to win it all God I hope I’m not wrong about these guys. 

Cobra Kai - Djordje draft Musse with his first pick and last night, Musse couldn’t stop saying “I’m 35! Why you drafting me first? I’m not 25 any more!”, but really, I think Djordje just wanted to ensure his Monday night team got favorable calls from him. Not that it helped last night in the Serbian All-Stars dud of a debut, but Djordje is playing the long game. He knows come playoff time who will get the right whistles. Shaffer at #23 is a god damn steal and a half. I thought he’d go top 12 for sure. Look for Ryan to light it up on Tuesday nights after being ignored by Harry on Monday nights for some reason. 

ROOKS - So, uh did anyone else not notice that Saleek mentioned that he was a 2,000 point scorer in high school until after you gave him a captain spot as a rookie? Just me? Great, that’s a great place to start even without knowing a single other player on his team. Ok, i ‘know’ the Mad Bomber (Eric Bonvie) and soon his teammates will too.

DUNTON - Sam got his draft off to a great start, nabbing Stanowicz and Train, who want to play together. I mentioned that I think offense will be hard to come by (I see a lot of 42-35 finals the next couple weeks) so getting legit scoring options is HUGE. Sure he reached for his boy Gold a round too early, but this was as flawless a draft as someone can have despite never having played in this particular league before. Nice work Sam! 

WEEK 1 Lines

6:00 PM DUNTON  vs. You Got Tibbs'D (+11.5)
I can’t believe Train hasn’t text me like 4 times yet this morning telling me how amped he is. He DID do that after the draft when he got what he wanted with this roster. So I know he’s thinking it. Hell he probably knows I know he’s thinking it and didn’t want to give me the satisfaction of texting and proving me and himself, correct.

7:00 PM License To Lillard  vs. Ronin VIII  (+5.5)
I really need an editor. Tenney is going to dominate in this game.

8:00 PM I'm A Shooter  vs. ROOKS  (-15.5)
Biggest spread of week 1! I have no reason for it. Bet accordingly.

9:00 PM Cobra Kai  vs. CAC Top Shot (-2.5)
GAME OF THE WEEK! The night cap is going to be bananas, I can feel it. After the second of three straight nights seeing Harry I will need this as a palate cleanser to end my night. Top Shot is down a guy or three I believe, but that just means more 3s for Drew. O/U on his attempts is 15.5

To borrow a line from a wise man: I'm 35, not 25. I'll be struggling to walk on Tuesdays after playing on Mondays.

He’s relying on a rookie and Sean Callahan, who, sure, I guess?

That’s cold

If the rookie doesn't bleed all over the sidelines last night it would have worked week 1!
