Ravens frontcourt depth put him over the edge for me. Not sure how his team could stop Durant. But Hickson and Zaza? meh.

Docta 11-13-2012 11:35 AM

A team with Sessions and Pachulia as back-ups.. And Duncan probably only has 2 years left in him.

I go Ravens. The only reason this is even close is because of Durant.

D-Unit 11-13-2012 02:27 PM

Not even close. Durant's value is not being realized in this vote. I don't get it.

It's not even close for that reason and the fact that Ravens' team is a collection of some of the most overrated in the NBA and only one above-average defender...

Da-Phins bench is just so putrid though...

yo123 11-13-2012 03:08 PM

In a 12 team draft Zaza/Sessions/Tobias Harris probably shouldn't be involved, but that's not enough to overcome the rest of the rosters. Mayo/Marion/Hickson/Diaw are all perfectly fine bench guys.

Ravens is starting Bradley Beal, that's a bigger deal than Phins having a couple crappy guys on his bench.

Ravens1991 11-13-2012 03:08 PM

Deron williams will be better then Lowry through 3 years. Beal will be on part w/ Matthews year two then should be better year 3. Yes Durant will still be a stud but Deng is one of the better defenders in the league to slow Durant down. Duncan will be slowing down fast throughout this time and Monroe should be on par with Hibbert if not better. That is just the starters my bench is a lot better then Da-phins as well.

Da-Phins 11-13-2012 03:17 PM

God damn it guys! I didnt realize that Sessions was so bad apparently. I havent watched him enough with my naked eye to truly see how he is. And I do have Mayo that can play some backup point. With a guy like Lowry who is becoming a stud, I wont need a packup PG all that much anyway.

And major fail by me to think that Zaza is a quality backup.

Wootylicous 11-13-2012 03:23 PM

This is so ******* close!

Paul 11-13-2012 03:33 PM

I like Phins' starting 5 over Ravens, but raven's bench is serious. hmmm

TheBoyWonder22 11-13-2012 03:36 PM

Vote Ravens. Over three years his team is lethal.

Wootylicous 11-13-2012 03:46 PM

Ravens win. First upset (kind of!) of the tournament!

Paul 11-13-2012 03:46 PM

Had to go with ravens. Bench is too strong.

Da-Phins 11-13-2012 03:47 PM

Looking back, wish I'd done a better job with my big man depth. Oh well. Congrats Raven.

For a rookie, Beal has played fine. And it's over a span of 3 years. It's not like Deng couldn't switch to SG either.

One bad starter > no depth.

Ravens1991 11-13-2012 03:55 PM

Beal will be a stud especially in a offense that requires hkm to spread the floor and run the pick and roll like this one. Yes he had 2 ****** games to start the season but in the last 3 games he averaged 18.333 points on 47.5% shooting. He shot 40% from 3 point range. 91% from the free throw line. He averaged just over 4.5 rebounds too. He is definitely showing his potential as a well rounded sharp shooter who can get you 22 a night and be above average in all aspects of the game.

Which means this year is 1/3 of the weight, Beal isn't ready to compete against the better guards in the league.

And Phins doesn't have no depth, I don't know why people keep saying this. Mayo/Marion/Hickson/Diaw are all fine. Pachulia doesn't even necessarily have to play more than 5 minutes with Diaw being able to play the 5 too.

Plus, Kevin Durant. Like D and gngpc said, you guys just aren't valuing him enough.
