Default Shootyhoops - Squad Up

Post your final roster here. Once we have all the rosters posted, we'll have you guys PM your votes ranking your top 5 (not including your own) teams from 1-5.


At the bare minimum include your roster but you're encouraged to provide some more info (and pretty pics if you want) on the players, rotations, system, philosophy, etc. etc. to hype/give people a clearer idea what your team's all about. Some of you have already done this in the other thread. If so just, just copy and paste that sh*t here.

CHRIS PAUL, the pick and roll maestro and best floor general in the league that heads my offense with efficiency and minimal turnovers while creating havoc on defense with his relentless effort and league leading steals tally.

MARC GASOL, the defensive anchor and overall offensive weapon that's equally effective at the high post, in mid range with his effortless jumper, or in the pick and roll. Will have no problem locking down opposing bigs in the paint.

ANDREW WIGGINS, the young super-athlete with tons of length that shoots well from three while possessing a surprisingly good post-game. All around offensive contributor whose focus will be on evolving into an elite defender.

DANNY GREEN, the defensive minded sniper from beyond the arc who specializes in elite transition play on both ends of the floor, provides spacing, and has the length and willingness to defend any perimeter offensive threat.

TAJ GIBSON, the rugged, scrappy defender and offensive rebounder who brings toughness to the team, controls the paint with his ferocity, and can finish at the rim as an ideal fit next to Marc Gasol in the high-low.

BRANDON KNIGHT, the combo guard playmaker and scorer off the bench that can run an offense at an allstar level if Paul is resting, or space the floor with his improved shot while slashing to the rim if he's playing with CP3.

DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS, the versatile big man with a fantastic back to the basket scoring game who can pass well and make make plays out of the pick and roll while possessing 3P range and surprisingly good rim protection.

MIKE DUNLEAVY JR., the reserve swingman who specializes in spacing the floor for my impossible-to-stop pick and roll and burying threes while providing sound, fundamental play on the defensive end of the floor.

KYLE O'QUINN, the defensive minded shot blocker who has regularly averaged ten-plus rebounds per 36 over his three year career, he's a perfectly capable replacement for any of my bigs in the case of foul trouble or injuries.

MATTHEW DELLAVEDOVA, the backup guard that hits 40% from 3 while playing tough defense and hustling all over the floor, doing all of the little things while pitching in 3 reb and 5 ast per 36 with floor spacing.

Quote:
SYSTEM

Tried my best to form a team of players that fit together and can play in a specific system, that being the Spurs motion offense. The offense would be centered around the CP3/Gasol pick and roll, much like SAS consistently uses Parker/Duncan. The role players would play their obvious roles from there, with every little move resulting in different backscreens and cuts as we move the ball around and space the floor. Just picture the Spurs offense, because that's exactly what I drafted for - I chose to fill specific roles to engineer a perfect offense rather than chase the best possible talent and struggle with what to do from there. The biggest difference would probably be in transition, where CP3 is much more dangerous than Parker, and he has a super athlete in Wiggins ready to run the floor while Green will do what he does best and sprint to that 3P line.

PG: Kyle Lowry: Top 7 PG in the game, and one of the better point guards at limiting turnovers and maximizing his assist to TO ratio. Solid defender, and can absolutely run the constant passing offense that this lineup is built on.

SG: Courtney Lee: Will basically rotate back and forth with JJ Redick in this role. Above average defender for the most part, and has progressed to become excellent at perimeter and mid-range shooting. He can move the ball around and again, like Lowry, limits turnovers.

SF: Kawhi Leonard: Best perimeter defender in the game right now, and probably the best rebounder at the SF position sans maybe LeBron and a few bench guys. He's truly evolved into a top 15-20 player in the NBA, and would be perfect for the pass all around offense I am attempting. Can also shoot, both from mid-range and three, even if he has had some minor struggles earlier this season (which have since been righted). The star of the team right now.

PF: Al Horford: One of the better passing bigs in the league, and extremely versatile on both ends of the court. He already is a focal point in the offense I'm semi modeling the team over, and his excellent mid-range shooting helps the spacing around along with everyone else on the offense. Again, limits turnovers big time.

C: Tim Duncan: Still a top 15 player in the NBA despite his age, and has evolved into such a smart defender that he is still elite on that end. Would be able to handle any big for the most part on defense, and his veteran leadership/passing skills would help the offense maximize the passing I intend to go forth with. Also a capable-ish midrange game, but he would be mostly kept inside.

6th man: G JJ Redick: Pure sniper sixth man that would come off the bench to light it up beyond the arc. He's a decent defender that would have any issues masked by the skills of the rest of the team on that end. Doesn't force shots (keeping this a theme sans Lowry), and limits turnovers.

Supersub: F Draymond Green: Has basically become the most versatile defensive player in the NBA, and might be the DPOY favorite right now (either him or Duncan, who also sits right up there). Not a great shooter, but he does everything else (passing, rebounding, limiting turnovers) that it compensates his average efficiency just fine. Could easily come in at any point and be glued to the best offensive player on the court, and act as point forward when Lowry is not on the court.

Bench:

PG:Elfrid Payton: Emergency backup for Lowry really, wouldn't see much time as I would run a 9 man rotation that he isn't apart of. He is a good passer and rebounder though, and could run the offense if Lowry were hurt.

G: Patty Mills: Would get minutes as the backup point to start. Pesky defender, and one of the best shooters in the league. Can go absolutely off in the right circumstance, and while he isn't the type of guy to run an offense, he flat out doesn't turn the ball over.

SG/SF: Kyle Singler: Specialist. Not apart of the rotation and only there to shoot threes, which he is damn good at.

PF/C: Henry Sims: Emergency backup big, not apart of the rotation. Can come in and be physical if absolutely necessary.

C: Robin Lopez: Elite interior defender and one of the more efficient bigs inside in the league. Can completely clamp down with any lineup and fits just fine. Big part of the defensive rotation, and a lineup of Lowry/Kawhi/Draymond/Duncan/Fropez is pretty much the best possible defensive lineup in this entire thing. No idea why no one else took him, unless they forgot he existed.

Ultimately, my team is all defense, ball movement and spacing. No one on the team is going to force shots except Lowry, and he can pretty much be controlled in that department. No player is inefficient. No player is prone to turning the ball over often. Championship experience with 4 combined Finals MVPs. I have the top 3 guys in defensive rating this year (Duncan, Kawhi, Draymond) and guys who can clamp down on every single position.

I don't expect to win or anything because I don't have a star in the strictest sense, and my team is in no way flashy. But just look at my team and ponder everything that comes together here. The 9 man rotation...

Lowry -> Mills
Lee -> Redick -> Kawhi
Kawhi -> Lee -> Draymond
Horford -> Draymond -> Duncan
Duncan -> Horford -> Fropez

fits better than just about any team here. Championship experience, lack of egos, shooters everywhere, limited turnovers, defense defense defense and zero spacing issues.

PG: Trillard- one of the best PG's in the league, young, explosive, can do it all offensively and has been known to ht some sexy clutch shots (INSERT GIF AND COMMIES TEARS)
SG: Demar Derozan - athletic wing who's improved his all around game, being able to defend (except Joe Johnson) and have a well rounded offensive game.
SF: Luol Deng- solid, do it all guy who can score and defend.
PF: Serge Ibaka - Shot blocking gawd who's offensive game has been taking some pretty cool strides.
C: Andre Drummond- Rebounding and shot blocking and alley-oop dunking freak.

6th Man: Kemba Walker- literally the perfect 6th man. Can make things happen, score in bunches, perfect spark plug off the bench.
SuperSub: Andre Iguodala- Can play the 2 or 3, even the 4 if we go small. Hell, he can even handle if need be. Makes things happen with being an excellent passer and still a lock down perimeter defender.
Bench: Dougie McBuckets - His name says it all. 3 pt specialist off the bench
Bench: MIRZA- 3 point marksman and lebron stopper
Bench: Reggie Evans- Beard.
Bench: Mason Plumlee- Does what Drummond does, perfect sub for him


This team will run on you, and has no trouble scoring in the half-court. Deng is a good stopper, and just try and get a shot in the paint over Serge and Drummond. And don't even think about offensive rebounds. This means the wings and guards (including Kemba and Iggy) can leak out and start the fast break. Kemba, Iggy, Trillard can all run it, and the athletic wings (and bigs) can finish. Plumlee is the 8th man, filling in perfectly for what Drummond does as a starter. The rest are guys who are simply role players and excel at what they do and are needed to do, shoot or rebound. It's as simple as that. Rotations don't really go more than 9 deep anyway, if we're being 100% honest, which is why top heavy depth is what makes my team scary. Bringing off 3 starters from the bench and having a heavy shot blocking and rebounding presence.

PG: Curry / Lawson / Sloan
SG: Wes / Dudley
SF: Tobias / Covington
PF: LaMarcus / T Jones
C: Jonas / Mozgov / Aldrich

Not going to schill for my team too hard here, but I think it is a damn good team with a lot of positional flexibility on the wing. Especially like the ability to go regular or super small ball depending on the situation (Lawson-Curry-Wes-Tobias-Lamarcus/Jonas).

The team just fits together well and is a nice blend of star power, excellent shooting, rim protection and solid wing defense.

Also, Aldrich and Sloan would never play. Covington would also rarely play (Wes and Dudley can both deputize at SF even though nominally SG above).

The SQUAD
The team (especially the starters) has a focus on athleticism. Westbrook runs the show and is the primary scorer. The half court offense will have a clear focus on PnR with Blake and Whiteside. Parsons and Beal bring range to the offense and will have more of a focus of the offense when Westbrook is off the court. Blake will be the secondary option on offense and will have his fair share of chances to run things. Whiteside will primarily focus on rebounding and defending the rim while having limited minutes to let him go full speed when he is on the court.
Smart and Middleton bring range and defense off the bench and will be the depth players at the 1, 2 and 3. Adams and Davis bring hustle and defense down low, with Olynyk bringing an offensive boost from the big rotation. One of the big three players will generally be on the floor with the second unit.

The Rotation
PG: Westbrook (36)
SG: Beal (30)
SF: Parsons (33)
PF: Blake (33)
C: Whiteside (24)

6th: Smart (24)
7th: Middleton (21)
8th: Adams (15)
9th: Davis (12)
10th: Olynyk (12)

This team is somewhat unconventional but I was kind've inspired by this year's Kentucky team in that being more athletic and WAY bigger than other teams can cause opponents a lot of problems. My starting lineup is ridiculously long across the board. I feel the athletes I have give me a lot of versatility on both ends. This is a big, athletic team but it doesn't lack shooting or play makers. I feel I got a nice combination of vets who knock down big shots in big moments and freakish young athletes paired together. This team will run a typical LeBron offense: space the floor, LeBron at the point running high pick and rolls either attacking the basket, finding Pierce & Dirk from 3, Giannis slashing, throwing lobs to Gobert or running devastating pick-n-pops with Dirk. Defensively, I think I have a lot of versatility with the athletes I have with my backcourt having the ability to all guard 1-3 and Lebron and Giannis able to guard 4's. And even if I'm in a more offensive centric lineup, I have the league's best rim protector patrolling the paint behind them.


STARTERS

PG LeBron James | 6'8 | - Still the best player, most impactful, most adaptable player in the league. You can call him a point "forward" if it makes you feel better because but he runs the point and has for the last few years and has definitely been Cleveland's PG this year.

SG Paul Pierce | 6'7 | - Won't play heavy minutes due to age but still playing at a high level (17/6/3 per 36) and is a really good 3 point shooter (.384) who can space the floor. Afflalo will get plenty of minutes at the 2 but I want in crunchtime, there's not many wings I want and trust on the floor in big games/moments than The Truth.

SF Giannis Antetokounmpo | 6'11 | - Has developed faster than anyone thought and should be crazy good by 2016. Super versatile and can play 2-4 on both ends in different lineups. Probably will be my small-ball 4. On offence he'll essentially be a ridiculously long, 6'11, hyperathletic, 20-21 year old version of what DWade was with Bron. Doesn't have a 3-point shot yet but a great slasher who can get to the rim with an impressive mid range game who would be devastating in transition.

PF Dirk Nowitzki | 7'0 | - Might still be the league's best all-around shooter, at least still the best mid-range shooter. Provides spacing Elite big game player. LeBron/Dirk pick-n-pops are gonna be pretty damn unstoppable. Pairing him with Gobert will hide some of his blah defense.

C Rudy Gobert | 7'2 | - 22 year old in his 2nd year who is already the best shot blocker and rim protector in the NBA. Very good rebounder. Not a post-up player yet which is almost better because isn't gonna clog up the lane by demanding the ball but can catch lobs and get putbacks which is all I really need him for on offence.

6TH MAN

PG Isaiah Thomas | 5'9 | - Strong candidate 6th man of the year (21/5 per 36) this year. Awesome at creating off the dribble and has also been great from 3 this year (.391 on 4.5 att). A nice stylistic changeup to the other guys in the starting lineup.

______________________

KEY SUBS

SG Arron Afflalo | 6'5 | - Will be splitting a lot of minutes with Pierce. 3 point shooting down a little this year but has been a knockdown shooter for most of his career. Can score in a variety of ways. Solid defender who can defectively guard wings

F/C Marreese Speights | 6'10 | - Has surprisingly had an awesome this year coming off the bench in limited minutes (24/10 per 36). Another potential 6th man of the year candidate along with Isaiah. Can play the play the 4 or the 5. Offers a lot more on the offensive end when he subs in for Gobert and more D and rebounding than Dirk at the 4.

______________________

RESERVES

SG Ben McLemore | 6'5 | - Super athletic and can shoot 3's. Has shown quite a bit of development this year despite being stuck in a ****** situation. Get him on a good team and he could be a legitimate starting caliber player.

PG Langston Galloway | 6'2 | - Just needed someone else who could handle the ball and run the offense deeper on my bench. Explosive rookie who has shown some flashes this year.

C Joel Embiid* | 7'0 | - The best player in the 2014 draft. Stashing him away for the 2014-15 season.

PG: Eric Bledsoe - Good 2 way player that can take over a game, running the pick and roll with Durant/Favors/Monroe will be tough to guard. Double screen coming from both ways and bledsoe picking apart the defense. One of the best transition defense in the NBA.
SG: Victor Oladipo - Dipo has shown he can run the show and put up the numbers. Great at taking it to the hoop and finishing, has the ability to get to the line as well as Harden. His shooting has improved from last years and is only going to get better.
SF: Kevin Durant - Reigning MVP and one of the best scorers in the game. With Monroe and Favors able to shoot from the mid range the spacing of the floor on offense is going to be great for Durant to break down the defense.
PF: Derrick Favors - One of the better all around PF that is consistently getting better. One of the best defenders at his position with the ability to guard the perimeter. Great at grabbing boards and blocking shots
C: Greg Monroe Playing at his natural position he'll be able play from the top of the key and taking them to the rack or pull up a mid range. Versatile with his offense he will be a match up nightmare for most slow bigs that have to come out of the paint to guard him. A great rebounder and can run the floor as a big when the team is on a fast break.

6th Man: Darren Collison All around point guard that will run the 2nd unit or small ball lineup built to run with the 1st unit.
SuperSub: Kenneth Faried A good starter, but moving to the bench making him a great high energy guy that can be the leader of the 2nd unit. It was shown during the Olympics when surrounded with other great talents his game can excel immensely.
Bench: Jae Crowder
Bench: John Leuer
Bench: Hollis Thompson
Bench: Tarik Black

A team that will out run your team, the whole starting 5 will run in transition wrecking havoc on opposing defenses. Choosing to go with an even faster and smaller line up, Collison can get subbed in at the point guard with a line up of.


PG: Darren Collison
SG: Eric Bledsoe
SF: Victor Oladipo
PF: Kevin Durant
C: Derrick Favors

Or

PG: Darren Collison
SG: Eric Bledsoe
SF: Victor Oladipo

Starting Squad

PG: Goran Dragic - Despite a dip in numbers, still one of the best gaurds in leauge. Can play effectively on or off the ball, which is vital playing in the same backourt as Harden. A qaulity passer, ballhandler and shooter.

SG: James Harden - Numero Uno Option. The best scorer, passer and one of the best rebounders at the 2 guard positon. Adaquate defender when he is engadged. He has proven this year that he can carry a subpar team, to one of the top tier teams in the brutal west. Imagine what he can do with a legit team around him.

SF: Demarre Carroll - Unsung hero of the Atlanta Hawks squad. The cliche 3-D guy, but he does a danm good job at it. Frees up Harden from gaurding the opponents best permiter scorer, who shoots more than well from 3. A great competitor, who with Tyson adds an "edge" to the starting line up. Can see time at the 4 in smaller line ups.

PF: Ryan Anderson - Shoot the J. Shoot it! One of the best 3pt shooters at the 4 spot. Vital in stretching the floor as Tyson roams the paint for easy buckets, and Goran and Harden attacking the basket for scoring or kickout oppurtunities. Not a bad rebounder either. Pick and pop extraodinare with either gaurd.

C: Tyson Chandler - Watch a Mavs with and without Tyson, and see what an impact he has on a game. One of the best defenders in the game, forget just from the Center postion. Shot blocking, altering shots, one on one in the post, ball denial, diving for looseballs, crashes the boards, and underrated skill of playing passing lanes. He does it all on defense. On offense, he has a difficult time missing shots. Obivously great at converting easy buckets, which he will have plenty of with Harden and Dragic driving to the basket or on P&Rs. 2nd chance points machine, constantly tapping missed shots backout to teammates. Also, he is not a terrible shooter from the right elbow. Cherry on top.

Key Reserves

K-Res: Reggie Jackson - Adds atheltiscm, defense and length at the gaurd postion. Can come in for either Harden or Dragic, or at the same time for a 3 gaurd line up that will scorch defenses. Has the green light once he checks in.

K-Res: Nikola Vucevic - In need of easy buckets in the paint, just throw him in either for Anderson or Tyson. Extremely skilled scorer in the paint and a double double machine. An absolute luxury to have as a reserve.

Reserves
Res: John Henson - Tyson Chandler-lite. Per minute stat producer and a perfect frontcourt mate to the more offensive minded Vucevic. Best shot blocker on the team.

Res: Marco Belinelli - Great offensive player. Shoot the 3 and underrated passer.

Res: Iman Shumpert - Lost some of his luster the past couple seasons, but still a good ballhandler and defender. Can still shoot the 3, and come in for either wing postion. Does most of his damage in transition.

Res: KJ Macdiniels - He jumps pretty danm high.

While I didn't have a strategy in mind coming into the draft, I knew, picking outside the top four, that I needed to make the most out of my first two selections and to get value from there on out. But unlike this post my team is not more flash than substance. I feel that I have assembled a team of efficient offensive players to go along with some of the NBA's best defenders, built around the core of Butler, Hayward, Love and Jordan I feel that this team will collectively, physically, fundamentally, and overwhelmingly destroy the competition.

Jimmy Butler, SG/SF, $2,119,214 - The most undervalued superstar outside of maybe Kwahi Leonard, Butler has turned the corner this season offensively and has become a very efficient scorer to go along with his elite level defense

Kevin Love, PF, $15,719,063 - A top 3 player last year, Love has seen his numbers decline with the move to Cleveland but with his return to a more prominent role on offense I expect a return to his former glory.

DeAndre Jordan, C, $11,440,123 - An elite NBA player within 8 feet of the basket Jordan has finally started to learn how to play defense. His outlook seems very comparable to a prime Tyson Chandler.

Gordon Hayward, SF, $14,746,000 - Another young stud who has recently turned the corner, averaging 19/5/5 on the year at a efficient rate, Hayward has a very well rounded offensive game that should compliment Butler, Love, and Jordan well.

Ricky Rubio, PG, $5,070,686 - Not going to lie every PG I initially wanted was drafted before I could get one, bane of picking towards the end of a snake draft. Rubio seems to finally be healthy, a one time Euro prodigy Rubio hasn't quite seen all of his offensive game transfer over to the NBA but is still a very effective passer who can run the pick and roll and can certainly hold his own on defense.

Patrick Beverley, PG, $915,243 - A very good, very cheap young defensive minded PG, while Beverley is certainly better off the ball on offense shooting corner 3s at a near 40% clip he shouldn't having any problem running this team oriented offense when needed.

Patrick Patterson, PF, $5,831,326 - The emergence of Patterson's 3 point game this year has put him right in the thick of the 6th man of the year race. Taking over 53% of his shots from behind the arc and making over 40% has really opened up the offense for Lowry in Toronto and we hope it will do the same here.

Tony Allen, SG/SF, $5,000,000 - The Grindfather, this dominate 3/D player for near a decade has yet to start his decline, still a dominate wing defender and one of the most beloved players in the NBA by his teammates.

Al-Farouq Aminu, SF, $981,084 - Solid defensive role player, not really much else to say.

Andre Roberson, SG, $1,210,800 - Basically the same as Aminu, nothing outstanding about his offense but shines on defense.

Lavoy Allen, PF/C, $948,163 - Solid back up big, good rebounder, efficient on offense, his game is limited to within 5 ft of the basket.

Mike Muscala, PF/C, $816,482 - Good young big with room to improve, slowly coming into his own. A hustle player who is adept at pick and roll/pop plays on offense.

Sacramento Kings

PG: Jeff Teague - primary ball handler, pick and roll extraordinaire. Teague's high pace works well with the pick and roll offense i'd be working with Anthony Davis and Joakim Noah, both excellent finishers at the rim.

SG: Kyrie Irving - another guy that is excellent in the weakside two man game, with two post players that excel in the pick and roll, the lineup alterations can work with either set of guys running the offense at different points in the game.

SF: Carmelo Anthony - excellent scorer who can take a load off from his usually heavy offensive burden and can spot up for open shots off the dribble drive and post up on the weakside against smaller defenders.

PF: Anthony Davis - a do everything guy, pick and roll monster that's improving his jump shot every game, powerful finisher and perimeter defender. Along with Teague and Noah on defense, will shut down opposing pick and rolls.

C: Joakim Noah - very well polished offensive center who can handle the ball at the top of the elbow and find the open shooter when the defense collapses into the paint.

Bench:
F/C - Nerlens Noel
SF - Shabazz Muhammad
PG - Aaron Brooks
C - Alex Len
SG - Dante Exum

My starting unit will actually vary as minutes will be staggered among "starting guys".

Carmelo Anthony will be mostly utilized with the bench unit along with Aaron Brooks, to maximize offensive firepower and shooting ability. That unit will mostly be rounded off with a combination of Noel and Len in the post to contain paint scoring given the weaker perimeter defenders.

Kyrie Irving will get some ball handling at staggered points as well along with Noah to drive the offense through pick and roll dribble penetration with kickouts to Brooks and Muhammad.

Exum will be mostly used as a high energy slasher and defender when guys are in foul trouble or we need some balls to the wall point guard pressure on the opposing team's primary ball handler.
