|Week 5, May 15:|
Why? Because it is a game 7! I think the Thunder will win, but (!) I will not risk losing the chance to pick Westbrook with his possible 36 PRA.
If Thunder loses, the Westbrook pick is spot on.
If Thunder wins, I get his PRA earlier and would probably pick a 15-PRA player in some point of the next round in exchange. The alternative is Mayo (assume 20 PRA now that he starts) which is just 5-pt difference.
Westbrook's 36 PRA is too precious to lose in a gamble.
Note that the Chicago-Miami conference finals starts on the same date. I still have the complete Bulls and the Heat roster available:
CHI Rose (41.3)
MIA James (40.4)
MIA Wade (38.8)
MIA Bosh (27.0)
CHI Deng (26.2)
CHI Boozer (23.1)
CHI Noah (22.5) <- note this
If you are forced to pick Mayo (who has lower PRA than Noah), then you might as well start picking from this new series.
