I been doing a lot of mocks and have been landing Curry and Wall with my 1st 2 picks and those are the guys I'm targeting if possible. If you could realistically land any 2 players in the 1st 2 round that would excite you, who would they be?

16 team, 14 player h2h points keeper league. Picked 12th. Love fell to me, picked up Davis around the turn at 21. Love falling, especially in a points league. Couldn't ask for anything better than that. That was certainly ideal.

I'd love to build around Harden and Horford. I love Curry as well after what he did for me last year but I still worry about the ankle.

Depending on what pick I am assigned, but assuming I'm in the middle of a 10 league draft I would go for Irving and a big man (Gasol, Aldrige, Horford, and maybe even Davis)

I play in a standard scoring league where % doesn't count, so my opinion wont really matter but, I def would go with Curry/Cousins, that'd be sick.

I got steph and wall on the 1st 2 rounds as wall is nicely paired with steph to compensate wall's lack of range, then went on to reach for players who I think will have a break out season.

Durant or LeBron. The second-round pick doesn't matter nearly as much as getting a top 2 pick.

One of Curry's biggest strengths is his shooting percentages, he shoots over 46% for his career even though a large share of his shots are 3pters not to mention he also shoots 90% from the line.

In a league that discounts percentages, I think that would hurt Curry's value.

Obiously almost anyone can be paired with LBJ/KD.. The tough question would be, who would you pick if you were in the tail end of a snake draft..
Wall/Davis = would be a reach but high upside
AlJeff/Batum = solid all around / proven
Melo/Marc = great complement to one another

Just my 2cents. :)

Wall/Davis would definitely not be a reach at the 2/3 turn...all those players you mentioned should be long gone by those picks

I'm sorry what i meant with these pairings were for them to be taken late 1st round + early 2nd round..

some good pairings for different strategies...

Gasol/Batum...then PG 3rd round
George/Batum...stack stat stuffing wings and build from there
Rose/Melo...gives you points, then you fill stls/blks later (Sanders/Millsap 3rd round)
Howard/Love, Howard/Anyone

Is it a good strat for your 1st 2 picks to have the same position eligibility? Batum/George seems nice since wingmen are the most shallow position this year but it might be hard to pull off in 14team leagues.
