We got the draft in just under the wire last night! With a 6 team league at our newest location, Fidelity House (25 Medford St – Arlington), we start Monday the 14th. I’ve hit you with a quick power rankings below, but make sure you’re following along on twitter 

DRAFT TWEETS –

I mostly thought my team was good and couldn’t get over the #3 pick in the draft. Really what else is there to talk about? let’s hit the rankings

POWER RANKINGS

6 – The Last Dance – Rumors were swirling late last night that #1 overall pick Keith Baranowski is trying to pull an Eli Manning and force his way out. That only works DURING the draft. As soon as Jamil made the 4th pick its value plummeted. He should have swung a trade for you during the draft! If Jamil REALLY wanted you (he didn’t) it’s 4/9/21/33 for 1/12/25/37. See how easy that is?? Anyway, if Keith shows up this team might be better than its current #6 ranking. Hopefully Gregg Dennis and Chris Alphen still have some game after a combined 11 years away from CAC. If not, Biskelonis might start to get a complex and think he can’t possibly get drafted onto a good team.

C RUBINACCIO
1 Baranowski
12 Dennis
13 Biskelonis
24 Alpen
25 Gesse
36 Russo
37 Seigal

5 – The Rooks – Jamil’s team hinges entirely on its rookies, which, given the team name makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is how he thinks he has anything to trade for keith. They’re all unknowns! Yea yea, 4 true rookies went in the top 7 of the draft, but everyone’s just throwing darts here. At least he’s got some size and the buddy combo that wanted to play together.

C BALL
4 Rodenstein
9 Penniman
16 Emmet
21 Toussey
28 Gagnon
33 DT-O
40 Lindsay

4 – Still Winded – Ok, so Guy Robinson thought it would be a GOOD idea to reunite half the team that went 2-7 in the B 5v5 West last season? Like, that was the plan heading into the draft?? This team’s success hinges entirely on Tanner and Lopez being legit. Not that Fraher and Hanks AREN’T, but they had some serious trouble putting the ball in the hoop last season. Although now that Guy is the lone Headband King on the roster, he might get some mojo back.

C ROBINSON
6 Tanner
7 Lopez
18 Fraher
19 Hanks
30 Fennelly
31 Morris
42 Faustin

3 – Super Friends – Honestly, this is a high ranking considering Tommy F’ing Kahana went #3. NUMBER THREE OVERALL!! Not third round. I know, I’m shocked too. I thought the edibles had hit early when Nick made the pick, but apparently not. The average age of the captain and first 3 picks is like 41. How have i ranked them this high? I just can’t get over it. I can’t. The rest of the team is rounded out nicely, but damn Tommy #3. He’s already in the Hall of Fame, he’s never going to let us forget this though.

C KERAMARIS
3 Kahana
10 Yeakley
15 Gill
22 Laporte
27 Comenitz
34 Connell
39 Hao

2 – Ronin Ballers – Look, Osloswki apparently knows what he’s doing. Last season, after like 6 years away from CAC Basketball, he drafted a team that ran to the finals. This season, he snuck in rookie Dan Hewett and surrounded him with capable role players like Kulpa, Rakusin and Russo. For some reason he drafted STAT #11 though. I still haven’t figured that one out. Glynn, Kunal and Dan are going to make for a fearsome bench mob

C OSLOWSKI
2 Hewett
11 Holland
14 Kulpa
23 Rakusin
26 Latino
35 Glynn
38 Kunal

1 – SOOGAA!! – Obviously my team is ranked #1. We’re huge. I took a 6 foot swing man in the first round, a 6’9 Robel in the second, I grew like half an inch during the pandemic and STILL wished I had been able to draft Hanks at 20. Will we play any defense? I’m not sure, but Larusson can put the ball in the hoop and if Liao can’t, i’m going to be pissed! This is gonna be a fun team, and not just because JOe Randall is guaranteed to throw 5 verbal and 2 physical jabs per night

C TIBBETTS
5 Shenton
8 Ghebremichael
17 Liao
20 Larusson
29 Devine
32 Randall
41 Quan

The only one that made alil sense was the one offered before the draft. But I’m not a captain so idk what any of the offers were . I’ll show up Tibbs, but I just may treat my teammates like mazz if they play anything like him, you know that whiny, flopping, chucking 3’s, no defense style of ball that the NBA is becoming, and walk out at halftime. Message only needs to be sent once. KeithVP!!! KeithVP!!!!

That is straight-up garbage, the trade offer proposed was completely lopsided and I will not negotiate with terrorists (lol). 

Should Vincent come to his senses, I’m still open to a reasonable trade that benefits both sides and will allow him to play with the guy he was trying to sneak into the draft. 

nevertheless, I am looking forward to my matchup with Vincent’s team. Best of luck fellas!

you guys are crazy, there is no ringer for him. As soon as you make the picks you want to trade away they lose value because the other captain doesn’t get to decide who they are

I think there was a deeper scheme that got blown up the second I was picked #1 and no one wanted to sell the farm to get me. I don’t know if I should be happy I got drafted #1 or pissed that the plan didn’t work.

Pre-draft

Vinny: Hey Tibbs, last time i drafted a team my first round pick no showed, i’m trying to avoid that this time. Is there anyone tall that is definitely going to show a lot 

Tibbs: Well keith is tall and is covering all my games, so he’s a good option. Xavier sucks, don’t draft him. the other guys with PRs are all guards, so good luck there

(forgets to mention the 6’9 guy)

Vinny: thanks for the insight tibbs, you’re so helpful and amazing for doing all this

Admittedly, I love the banter. It’s been a while since I had some fun on these boards. 

I’m 100% with Keith. 

I think there was a deeper scheme that got blown up the second I was picked #1 and no one wanted to sell the farm to get me. 

I now understand why you’re defending his sandbagging.

I’m 100% against Tibbs being helpful and amazing for doing anything. Robel is def an attendance issue and everyone else sucks so yup stuck with me!

I think that the scheme wasn’t even all Vinny’s idea now that we see actual collusion between captains. I’m shocked. Lol

WEEK 1 LINES

7 PM The Last Dance vs Ronin Ballers (-5.5)
I’ve got no idea about anything but this seems right. Despite Keith’s terrible first impression, I think Vinny is going to like having him on the squad. You might not have any clue what he’s talking about on the boards, but that won’t matter when he’s bulldozing guys and putting the ball in the hoop. 

8 PM Super Friends vs SOOGAA!! (-2.5)
Age ain’t nothing but a number, and the oldest team in the league is going to put up a fight tonight. I haven’t even sent an email to the squad yet to see who’s in or introduce myself. What a terrible team captain! 

9 PM Still Winded vs The Rooks (+11.5)
One game has to be a blowout tonight, right?! Still Winded has one thing baked in that no other team does to start the season, and that’s chemistry. Sure it didn’t amount to many wins last season, but Guy was pumped to get Fraher and Hanks back on his team and that has to count for something. At least, it has to account for more than all of jamil’s empty plotting.

This line feels super low. Tibbs and his team have superior talent and we don’t really stand a chance…..This seems like classic Tibbs trying make it appear like we have a chance when we actually don’t.
