    Drop Bosh for John Brisker and that team will be unstoppable.

    That's unfortunate, but I think you'll find I named my team before that. It's also named after a fictional midland city. What a bizarre coincidence.

    Going to make the first move here. After looking through my team and scrutinizing its weak spots, I feel like I'd be better served with a bigger, more defensive center to backup Shaq and pair with Rodman to protect my gunners. I hope someone can pick up Bosh and put him to good use- he's a great player, just need some shot blocking.

    I will be picking up Dikembe Mutombo (1999-2000) and dropping Bosh.

    Good pickup as a role player. Interesting choice of years. Not the one I'd go with.

    95-96 is still an option too. Down to a few extra rebounds/pg vs. a few extra blocks.

    I hope nobody picks up Bosh, so I can have him on my team. Just saying.

    @DarthIntegral just clarifying: we don't need depth charts in until matches are posted, right?

    Correct.

    And you are free to edit those between matches, too. You can play top matchups and strengths

    FWIW ... I don't care if depth strategy is posted public or in a PM. Up to each GM to decide

    I'm down for the undrafted draft too btw. Did Scott Howard ever make it to the NBA?

    This is your reminder to post final rosters and complete any transactions before kickoff of the Super Bowl.
